Running around Stormwind, did a few dailies, and didn't see any graphic tears or anything else out of normal.

changed status to "some problems"

the cursor hangs for 1-2 seconds after releasing the mouse button that triggered a spell/action, its addressed in us forums already, Blizzard says it need Apple to fix that issue til stable release of Lion.

Quote from the posting in readable english:

5. Cursor will become unresponsive in wow if you attempt to move it immediately after mouse button release fires an event. Any time you release mouse button you'll want to wait a second or two before moving mouse to avoid this
Work around: None, hopefully apple fixes it before lion GMs. Or we'll have a thread that makes naga thread pale in comparison. I'm highly doubtful apple will fix it though, it's an issue that affects wow and no other application I could try. ONLY wow. So it'll be one of those things blizz probalby has to create a work around for an apple issue, even if it has colateral damage (such as the spaces fix did with nagas).

Running flawlessly here. And significantly better frame rates!

Its almost fixed in the Golden Master of Lion. You still notice the cursor hang, but instead of 1-2 seconds its like few hundred milliseconds only.

For more detailed description see the post in my previous comment.

I need to ask a question. WoW Wrath of the Lich King (3.3.5a) works in Lion? Anyone has been tested?

Thanks in advance.

The rating for World of Warcraft needs to be changed. While the game indeed plays fine on OS X Lion, you cannot install it with the Blizzard Launcher, which does not work with OS X Lion. It will start working, but will crash at some point during the download. This is reported on Blizzard's site.
