I have Guild Wars installed since 1.01, now on 1.1.26 it runs better - fater and nicer :) I prefer to set up wine on windows 98 mode, and i think GW works best on that setting.
What does not
What was not tested
I didn't install the game.
I give gold cause of other users issues.

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:
