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.
Everything that I tested works:

What does not
What was not tested
It appears latest versions of wine staging and dxvk uses PE format for libraries, which requires them to be build with mingw support (obvious for dxvk which does not compiles without it, less obvious for wine which compile fine but does not allow game to run). Enabling mingw involves creating a crossdev environment. i can only recommend to follow gentoo wiki for it (wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/DXVK). Once mingw compiler and libraries are fine, you can compile dxvk, and wine with mingw support.
Also, I used to have lots of random crash while playing in previous versions: I took the habit of compiling wine with "-march=x86-64" (instead of -march=skylake in my case) which used to fix the issue (not sure it is still relevant).
I'm now running with wine 5.19 (staging), dxvk 1.7.2 (compiled with cross-x86_64-w64-mingw32/gcc 9.3.0) without any issue so far (nvidia drivers 455.28).
