Pretty much everything, except for a few minor glitches.
What does not
W, A, S, D keys are bugged (They do work, but not correctly).
Minimizing the window does not work properly. (Unless you wish to play in a 32x32 pixel window...)
Changing from Full-Screen to Windowed does work the first time, but the second time it does not.
If Japanese is selected as the main language, RÅmaji characters get cut at the top (a-z, 0-9). The same goes for a few Kanji characters.
Japanese input stops functioning IF the screen-saver has been activated over a short period of time, and a full restart of Guild Wars is needed. (SCIM-Anthy).
What was not tested
I used a custom compiled ntdll.dll.so in order to bypass bug 18675 http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=18675 If you wish to use it, feel free to download it from http://fredrickl.com/wine/ntdll.dll.so

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:
Using FBO as the ORM crashes with fglrx drivers
This is not a Wine bug, it is a fglrx bug. Please do not open a bug for this, it will just be closed.
See the fglrx bug for more details, or check the HOWTO for this app for a workaround.
