Full version of Final Fantasy XIV Stormblood (FFXIV 4.0)
Game runs smoothly at 80-100 fps after workarounds on i7 3820, HD 7970 3GB, and 16GB RAM (see below).
What does not
Intro cutscene, Wine without Gallium Nine will launch using wine-staging but framerate makes it unplayable. Must use Wine + Gallium Nine. Winetricks is also necessary (see below).
Note: if you do this approach when you install Wine + Gallium Nine you must have Wine completely removed, if you have problems here's the video I used to install it. You must then install winetricks making sure you use newest one from winetricks.org and use the commands
What was not tested
Have only played a small amount so far, will update this if I have any issues.

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.
