I know this is an old thread, but I'm having a similar problem.
Did you install WoW through wine/cedega, or are you just executing the WoW.exe from a Windows installation?

If I run wow in wine I get a brutal 1 fps - compared to the 13 or 14 fps I get running it on windows (Dual Boot)
However, when I try to run it in cedega - which I heard is better at launching games - I either get an error message or a black screen with audio. Either way I have to control-alt-backspace.
