The Old God N’Zoth has been unleashed from his titanwrought 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.
Battle.net app runs, able to install and run Twitch for addon updating, able to play all aspects of the game, including dungeons and raids. Created a custom script to launch WoW, since the Battle.net app has issues launching the game. It will update the game, which I have symlinked from my windows partition. Wine is self compiled, as per the how to notes on this site. Average of 50+ FPS in most areas, and patched swapchain.c to disable Vsync. Script to download and patch Wine has the command to fix the file. Not a workaround, as so much a bug fix, since mainline wow has vulkan frame locked at your monitor refresh rate.
What does not
What was not tested
Nothing. Everything works.
After patch 8.1 some people experience serious decrease in the FPS of the game. I have personally had to disable a mapping addon, that was not working with DX12 and wine. It dropped my FPS from 100+ on KulTiras to less than 20. I am looking for alternates to that addon.
