I installed WoW in this month in a x86_64 bits system, with 'nvidia' drivers and used nothing from this article. I just install wine and wine_gecko, [multilib] installed and ran the WoW installer. WoW is running as 64-bit, not 32-bit with [multilib].  I really didn't see any use for this article. No even to patch WoW, which battle.net seems to apply automatically on login. -- [[User:josephgbr|josephgbr]] 00:13, Thu, 30 October 2014 (BRST)

Deletion

This page can go away in my opinion.

  • It is incredibly out of date
  • It is not specific to Arch Linux. Or at least the specific parts are general knowledge (using pacman) or covered by better maintained pages such as wine
  • It is a duplication of effort

This page helped me quite a bit today when I needed to patch WoW manually. I find it still useful.

crescent Was useful to me.

nnscr Especially the optimization parts are really useful and I was quite positive surprised to find a dedicated page for this topic!

cyberconan Wed Aug 21 23:38 2013 I used many things of this wiki yesterday. Please, don't delete.

The article can stay, but if somebody could take the time to fix the problems reported by James Eder it would be very helpful. -- Kynikos (talk) 13:50, 23 August 2013 (UTC)
