World of Warcraft on Ubuntu 14.04 and #132 error

While trying to play World of Warcraft on my new Ubuntu 14.04.1 I have encountered #132 error.
As you might already found it, the error can mean anything. 
In my example I had nvidia-prime packages installed (I have Nvidia Optimus in my laptop) but even with WOW driver set to OpenGL it was hanging and throwing #132 error few moments after the characters were loaded.

Solution in my case was very simple:
1. I have added ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa repository
2. executed sudo apt-get upgrade
3. And upgraded wine from 1.6 to 1.7: sudo apt-get install wine1.7

Finally just check if your wine is now 1.7 and start the game again:
wine --version
wine Wow-64.exe
