Loading and installing, look in the extra comment sections for how I did that. PVP also works, I tried out Random Arenas. PVE works fine, ran around outside. Graphics are good, almost as good as they are on Vista. Nothing that would detract from the Game Play.
I tested PvE, Missions, quests, killing monsters, getting killed. All the basic stuff. Didn't find anything that was wrong.
Creating a character works, but sometimes it only shows loads the first two options (For Hair Color, EG.) However, the other styles are there, just not previewed.
Video works. As do skipping the Videos.
Minimizing and maximizing work, but are a little finnicky. Just give it a moment. Full screen is a little iffy, I'm not sure if Minimzing from full screen is a good idea, but Full Screen works as well.
I give this Platinum because nothing detracts from the Gameplay.
What does not
Nothing that I tried. Everything worked well.
The only "problem" I had was that I thought it was more laggy that it should be. Not always noticeable, but loading areas, and the first few bits in those areas seemed to be lagging. I don't think it would really matter in the long run, and it may be my sucky internet, but keep it in mind.
What was not tested
Erm... nothing? Nothing big.
Installed from the Official Client off of the Guild Wars website. It loaded fine and began installation. I have GW previously installed from a Windows Partition. Instead of downloading the files again, I copied the .dat file from windows to the GW directory in Wine. It loaded.

NOTE: Guild Wars usually doesn't require any special settings to get working. The advice listed below is only for those who require help installing, running, or troubleshooting Guild Wars.
Simply use the installer found at guildwars.com. Unzip the installer and run it using Wine:
WINEDEBUG=-all wine "C:\Program Files\Guild Wars\Gw.exe"
WINEDEBUG=-all will stop the flood of fixme messages generated from normal use. If you require debugging, omit this option.
If you are having graphics issues, use regedit to try some registry keys:
Appending these flags to the run command may help you:

This is not a Wine bug, it is a fglrx bug. Please do not open a bug for this, it will just be closed.
