This error appears to users if they are experiencing a corrupted user interface, brought about by either game modifications that handle UI or the title itself. If players experience this error, three steps should be taken to attempt to mitigate the error.

  • Disable all AddOns through the in-game menu, and either use the /reload command or restart the game.
  • Scan & Repair World of Warcraft through the launcher.
  • Reset the World of Warcraft interface.

World of Warcraft recently had a facelift, bringing the ability to customize the UI for players in the game. This could shake up a few long-term mods that focused on UI customization, such as Bartender and the like. The necessary troubleshooting for this error can become exhausting, renaming folders and redownloading the title in an attempt to solve this relatively vague error, but completing all troubleshooting steps should render the issue moot.

As World of Warcraft: Dragonflight is explored more thoroughly, the World of Warcraft mods should be making a comeback in force, as was seen for both World of Warcraft: Shadowlands and Battle for Azeroth. Players should expect relatively shaky mod support immediately after the launch of a new expansion, but rest assured the authors are plugging away in the background to give the best user experience that players have come to rely on.
