How To Fix World Of Warcraft LUA Errors On Windows PC

World of warcraft It’s one of the best and most played MMO titles in the world, and that won’t change for a long time. We recently heard that some users are having trouble trying to launch the game. People have reported that they have faced Lua Errors. Any unexpected condition encountered by Lua generates a script error.

Many users have no idea how to fix this problem, so we’ve taken it upon ourselves to find ways to fix things.

What makes LUA bugs show their ugly head?

Well, you may be wondering what is causing the error, and it makes sense. So, let’s explain a few things. LUA errors are generally caused by corrupted interface files. Resetting your user interface should solve the problem.

You see, games like World of Warcraft and Roblox use LUA files to apply plugins, mod files, macros, etc. So it is likely that you have implemented a corrupted plugin or maybe it has something else to do with LUA.

However, what is clear is that fixing this problem is quite easy to the point where even your pet can fix it.

Reset the World of Warcraft UI

One of the first things to do here is reload the World of Warcraft user interface. To do this, close the game if it is running. From there, remove any plugin manager that is currently in use.

Once done, navigate to the World of Warcraft installation folder on your hard drive.

If you don’t know where to find it, open the Battle.net desktop app and click World of Warcraft> Options> Show in Explorer.

You will immediately be directed to the installed folder through the File Explorer application.

For those who prefer to do it manually without having to open Battle.net, then they will want to look for the following in File Explorer:

  • C: Program Files (x86) World of Warcraft
  • C: World of Warcraft Program Files
  • C: usersPublicGamesWorld of Warcraft

Now, once you have entered the correct directory, you will want to select the retail or classic version of the World of Warcraft game.

After directly entering the, go ahead and rename the following folders:

  • Cache folder in Cache_Old
  • Interface folder to Interface_Old
  • WTF file to WTF_Old

Close the window and restart your World of Warcraft game instance to see if the LUA error persists.

Reset World of Warcrafts Console Variables

If the above doesn’t work, the best course of action is to reset the World of Warcraft control variables.

When you’ve logged into the game, open the chat box and enter the following commands:

/console cvar_reset
/console cvar_default

Finally, hit the Enter key, and that should be enough.
