UnitFrame.lua errors after path, also with clean instal

Technical Support
Hi,

Since today when I try to play WoW I get errors in my screen the whole time.
When I select my char and enter the realm it start with a Lua error.
When I click it away and target a mob I get again a lua error.
This happens every time. First I thought it might be one of the addons so I removed them all, deleted my WTF folder, logged back, same problem.
Next I threw away to whole installation and downloaded the game from bliz and reinstalled to clean. When I enter the game the same lua erros pop up.
Please help, this is very annoying.

Here is the lua error that I get every time:

Hi !

It seems this problem has been around since the PTR.

I had the same problem yesterday, seeing the same error spamming and reducing my FPS between 1 to 2 FPS during trash and boss fights ... so fun !

I also noticed all day long some small lags from time to time while questing on the Island.

Back on track.

There was a thread back then with the exact same error and someone gave a 'solution' which seems to work for me too.

See here : eu.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/7945594491.

/run SetCVar("raidFramesDisplayIncomingHeals",1)
/console reloadui
Hmm I am also getting this or similar when I log in or /reload

I have also disabled my addons then put them all back on etc and still getting that lua.

Also, many targets both friendly and enemy are showing as boss level, and I seem to have zero mana in my bar or show any Icicles on my mage.
Hello,

On the System menu on the in-game login screen, can you choose Reset User Options at the bottom of the options window, then see if you still get this?

Koca: if you have an issue please post your own thread explaining it.
