Everything you'd expect works apart from Nvidia Reflex and probably RT (couldn't test as I only have an GTX 1080).

Test Results

Selected Test Results

What works

  • client (installation, log-in, and WoW installation)

  • WoW authentication (log-in through and directly with email/pass/2FA through Wow.exe, realm and character selections)

  • Seemingly everything reasonable in-game gameplay-wise (questing, dungeons, battlegrounds, barrens chat)

What does not

  • Lower graphical performance


  • DXVK (improved graphical performance)

What was not tested

  • Any kind of in-game voice chat and TTS options
  • NVIDIA Reflex for latency modes (presumably need DXVK-NVAPI)
  • IPv6
  • Any interaction window using a web browser view (GM tickets?)

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Intel
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

  • Installation notes
  • With Intel UHD 630, I get the best FPS with DirectX 11 Legacy (-10 FPS with DX11, and -15 with DX12)
  • Spell effects (like changing Auras with a Paladin) tank FPS presumably from particle or spell effects, but lowest in-game settings for these don't help; unsure if it differs on Windows
  • I test with GNOME on Wayland at 1080p@74Hz; Xorg session had terrible FPS stutter even at 60+ FPS
  • I've tested distro-provided DXVK and vkd3d, DXVK 1.13 from official release on GitHub, and DXVK from master artifacts; none of them had any different experience or FPS in-relation to where it came from or the version
  • I tested WoW Dragonflight (Sept 26 2023 build)

VKD3D setting for DX12 graphics
by Stefanescu A on Saturday December 16th 2023, 3:58
It looks like the logging isn't the problem, disabling the log output only helps the game unfreeze faster. VK_KHR_present_wait extension seems the problem with the VKD3D 2.10/2.11 so disabling that extension seems to remove the problem. I added this to the setting of Wine but it should also works with proton

Offering RTX setup help for Nvidia using VKD3D-Proton

Recieved a 4060TI for fathers day, and setup raytracing in conjunction wit VKD3D-Proton to run DX12 on Vulkan. Wonderful new visuals. I can provide help to anyone who asks.
Very interested

I love to see your working, Steve. I've got a RTX 3060Ti, I think I can do raytracing.
