Please install mesa-utils if not yet installed: sudo apt-get install mesa-utils to test for OpenGL support.

Run a check to see if you have OpenGL support: glxinfo|grep 'direct rendering' or /usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -p.

And run glxgears to see how your video card renders and its FPS for the render.

If it appears you have OpenGL support and all is good then add to the WoW launcher the -opengl parameter. For example '.wine/drive_c/Program Files/World of Warcraft/Wow.exe' -opengl

and test to see the result.

Thanks a lot!. The only thing that I must fix, is that the trees are black pixelated =(. By the way, which is the optimal FPS I should have? – Diegov Oct 15 '11 at 18:32
For the human Eye the optimal is above 29 FPS. Less than that and you will visually see "lag". To lower this, add the -console parameter to your wow link and when inside wow press the ` symbol next to the 1. Then type farclip 100. farclip is how far you see objects, textures, landscape, etc.. It ranges from 100 to 2590. Farclip 100 is the best to start tunning the video. Please also read here to educate about the correct use of wine and maybe some helpful tips to improve the performance:… – Luis Alvarado Oct 15 '11 at 19:46
