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

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

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  • It is incredibly out of date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

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. -- josephgbr 00:13, Thu, 30 October 2014 (BRST)

This forum post reported that OpenGL isn't supported anymore. I don't have direct personal experience, but relatively recent sources seem to say that there was some kind of support at least in 2016, e.g. a post from a developer. I don't know what to do with this article, it does receive contributions every now and then, and the software is pretty popular... -- Kynikos (talk) 12:01, 21 September 2017 (UTC)
