What works

Everything tested, except in-game shop, payment screen appeared blank so it was impossible to close transactions.

What does not

I could navigate in-game to the Store, but attempting to close transactions leads to a blank page. In Windows you will see a page with banking details.


What was not tested

PvP: Arena or Battle Grounds.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

If I was able to close transaction in the in-game shop This would get a solid Gold ranking, however as I'm aware of no workaround for this issue the definition dictate a silver rating, however in normal gameplay expect Gold levels of performance (with DXVK).

Unexpected frequent terminations with builtin
by Aaron Dewell on Tuesday January 3rd 2023, 18:00
I was troubleshooting low framerate in the game one day, and used winecfg to change dx11 from native to builtin then native. That caused to throw frequent errors (unimplemented function) and then the game itself died fairly frequently (I didn't time it).
Reverting that setting to "native" fixed the crashes for me. The game runs quite well even at higher graphics settings with high framerates.
(Note: ultimately the solution for that day's low framerate was a reboot of Linux. I'm sure something simpler would have done it, but I don't know what it would have been.)

The app is such a sack I've always run it from it own wineprefix.

My WoW prefix currently uses four overrides:
d3d10core (native)
d3d11 (native)
d3d9 (native)
dxgi (native)

So I'm already set to d3dx11 (native) and my crashes are regular, but not too intrusive.

I'm having this problem in Classic (wrath) now, but retail is fine. Obnoxious. All overrides default too.

Good call on having in it's own prefix. I can only update it from a VM now, then copy the resulting directory into my wineprefix.
Unexplained Termination of WoW.exe
by Steve Ebey on Tuesday January 3rd 2023, 17:24
While running 8.0-rc2 I will be doing something in game, and the game exits, with no error message, and I have to use top to kill the WoW.exe process. I reverted Wine to 7.22 and the game plays with no unexplained drop outs to my desktop.

This random crash bug has been resolved in 8.0 rc3 - normal service has been resumed.
