The Old God N’Zoth has been unleashed from his titan wrought prison, and an ancient corruption has taken root across Azeroth, turning friends into foes and trapping warriors’ minds in nightmare visions of a hopeless future. As despair and madness consume the land, the heroes of the Horde and the Alliance will need to fight for their sanity—and the fate of their wounded world in this content update.
ShadowLands is live. Sylvanas and the Jailer in together, to bridge the world of the dead with Azeroth.
Installed the battle.net, logged in and installed the game from the app, as if it was Windows. It worked like a charm.
What does not
What was not tested
I haven't tried my hand at some kind of addon manager, in order to update them automatically. So I'm just updating them manually.
Everything above Wine 6.1 was borked. 6.0 worked, albeit with some minor audio glitches, and 5.0.5 worked flawlessly for me. At the beginning, I was getting a blank screen with sound, but it was solved after adding -d3d11 to the command line in the battle.net app.
