Full version of Final Fantasy XIV Stormblood (FFXIV 4.0)
Everything works pretty well, given you make some tweaks.
What does not
Game does not save its configs and char data on staging-3.13, see bug 45614. Everything else works decent enough to play it regularly. I suggest using wine-staging 3.12 which does not have this bug, and have similar performance.
Only annoyances are crackly audio with PulseAudio and jerky mouselook.
You will need xact from winetricks and maybe quartz. DirectX11 works fine with DXVK, without it you will get 100% black skin on all characters and maybe other glitches, too. DX9 works too.
Some tweaks needs to be done in
C:\users\My Documents\My Games\FINAL FANTASY XIV - A Realm Reborn\FFXIV_BOOT.cfg
Change BrowserType to 2
C:\users\My Documents\My Games\FINAL FANTASY XIV - A Realm Reborn\FFXIV.cfg
Change CutsceneMovieOpening to 1

Introductory video still does not run (without install quartz with winetricks) and needs to be disabled to access the game.
DirectX11 does not work (well) yet, so DirectX9 needs to be selected in config file and/or launcher.
Game does not always run well in 64 bit prefix.
Create a new 32-bit WINEPREFIX,
Ensure that winecfg is set to Enable CSMT... in the Staging Tab.
