World of Warcraft Ubuntu screenshot

Installing World of Warcraft (WoW) in Ubuntu or Linux Mint (with Wine) is pretty easy, however there are various crashes that can occur, especially if you’re not using the latest Wine and also, the FPS can be pretty low without a few tweaks, so I though I’d document everything I did to get World of Warcraft to work properly on my laptop (Nvidia Optimus, so I was able to test the game with both Nvidia and Intel graphics) and hopefully, this will help you play WoW under Ubuntu or Linux Mint.
