64-bit Guild Wars 2 client officially released May 17, 2016. This is the ideal client to be using and should be considered the default client.
I didn't test the install, just used an old one. It wasn't a comprehensive test but I played for a few hours without any crashes or problems.
What does not
Performance is bad without the dxvk patch.
Used the dxvk 1.8.1 patch for performance.
What was not tested
It wasn't a comprehensive test but I played for a few hours without any crashes or problems.
I logged in and played for a few hours with no crashes or performance regressions compared to Wine 5.x.
Previously I successfully ran 6.2, and experienced the login regression at 6.3-6.4, so I believe that's fixed. I was also able to log in using 6.5 but I had several crashes with it.
