World of Warcraft (retail) freezing at character select

I’ve had WoW installed and have run it a time or two but in the last week (that I’ve been trying) it now will freeze on the character select screen and the tower fans seem to ramp up.

I’ve tried a couple of things to get past this:
I disabled the lutris runtime for the game, no change.
I removed the Cache folder from inside the WoW install, no change.

It’s installed with wine version: lutris-5.2-x86_64

On the character select screen I sometimes will see “Compiling Shaders…” but sometimes I don’t.
Running in debug doesn’t log anything during the time the game is frozen. I have to kill all wine processes to stop it.

I’m not sure where else to go after this. I’d rather not have to re-download the game since it’s yuuge.

I figured out what the problem was, but only accidentally. I had left my work VPN connected and had forgot about that. Seems to work fine now.
