Installed Guild Wars Prophecies and later added both the Nightfall Campaign and Eye of the North and have played all three from start to finish without any problems.
Should be noted that sometimes my cursor becomes invisible, but that is usally after a few hours of gaming and ATL+TABing in and out alot during that time and if you use best filtering and after effects on the graphics coloring of items could take a zoning before applying correctly.
What does not
Nothing that I've noticed, and since I've played three campaigns from start to finish I should have done more or less everything that you can do.
What was not tested
My comp. is a AMD 4400+ X2 Dual Core cpu, 2GB RAM, GF8600GT - 512MB and I run Guild Wars with graphic setting on high with good FPS, good enough that I can record while gaming and still have a steady FPS. Also don't know why and if this has anything to do with Wine or not but I connect from EU but when playing Hero Battle GW thinks I'm from the US and ArenaNET has (according to their support) never encountered this before, but it doesn't affect the game.

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:
