Actually my experience tells me that WoW does not create any magic install time registry keys it can't rebuild at runtime if not present in the system. I have tarred up the dir and copied to a completely different system great many times and it always works be it windows or wine. There are no "product ids" or other nonsense since it requires a subscription anyway.

The install takes about an hour so I've done everything to avoid it and so far I've been successful every time.

I'd try a clean ~/.wine first and then checking the libs since it's likely an incompatible/missing/broken library/setting somewhere in the system that is crashing it.
