I think you've mixed up "World of" and "World of Warcraft" (without the .app).

I recommend you use tab completion to help you type paths correctly. In the Terminal, type "tsocks", a space, then "/Use" and a tab, "car" and a tab, "Lib", tab, "C", tab, "C", tab, "com", tab, "World", tab, "Co", tab, "Ma", tab, "Wo", tab. Hopefully that will complete the path. If at any tab it does not complete and instead beeps, press tab again and it'll show you multiple choices and you can type as much of the choice you want as is necessary to make the tab completion work.

Another way to enter paths correctly is to drag them in from the Finder. In Terminal, type "tsocks" and a space. Then, in the Finder, navigate to the World of Warcraft app. Control-click or right-click it and select Show Package Contents. Navigate into the Contents directory and the MacOS directory inside it. The World of Warcraft executable there is the one you want. Drag it into the Terminal window, which will enter its path. Then, in the Terminal, press Return.
