I don't think the outdated 512MB Nvidia GPU would be able to perform at a playable frame rate.
https://www.nvidia.com/object/nvs_techspecs.html

Minimum graphics is Intel HD 530 or GTX 560 2GB or HD 7850 2GB.

Here's a similar GPU compared to those:

I struggled to play with a sandy bridge i5 laptop, with a GT 540m, in legion, in anywhere but remote places, without any players. I wouldn't dare try BfA with it. Going by notebook check, that is a higher class card, than an NVS 2100m.

Ran OK for me, I was even using old drivers. The new expansion caused a lot of issues with low frames till nVidia and AMD got updated drivers. My main system was running with huge lag on drivers just a few versions out of date, updated the drivers and it more than doubled the FPS. The laptop with 2000M ran at 30-40 FPS without any updates, but I only tried it for a few hours. At much lower settings of course.

It might have been the dual core i5 holding me back, but I have struggled to play WoW on it, since WoD. Legion was basically impossible. It's an i5 2430m, 8gb ram, GT 540m, with a 512gb 850 evo. Wife uses it for schoolwork now. It can be upgraded to an i7 2630qm, or something along those lines. I would have to check the CPU options Asus had for it. I got me a new laptop earlier this year, that does all I need it to do, though.

You can try WoW for free up to lvl 20. Do that, and if you don't like the performance you get then go ahead and spend the money on a new GPU. A GT 1030 would be the cheapest new GPU to get, but if you wanted better performance then maybe a GTX 1050. If you go to high with the GPU we'd have to look in to your power supply.
