Best Quest Lore

Version: v3.09
by: Taraezor [More]

Description
Adventure efficiently whilst also maximising the storyline, fun and reward possibilities.

BQL also provides essential background lore. It is extensively researched. Much of WoW is based upon events occurring in other games, books and comics. BQL does NOT break immersion for RPers.

Pick of the Week 12th July 2015!

Features
* BQL advises on where to next quest. Sometimes Blizzard provides a choice
* Welcomes you to every zone with suggestions on where to go
* Provides extra pointers for certain interesting or confusing sub-zones
* Many "Lore Extras" are on a slow timer to "drip feed" you lore over a period of days/weeks
* Additionally, some of these need to be unlocked by visiting certain areas, sometimes in a sequence
The longest of these custom "lore chains" begins at the whirlpool south of Lor'danel in Darkshore
* Massive timeline of Warcraft lore from the year -25,000 to the start of WoW
Unique, detailed and accurate. Nothing else like it, anywhere!
* Highlights unusual or interesting quest rewards such as fishing poles, pets, unique gear, etc
* Informs you of potential unique weapon drops, and other rewards, in all Outland instances
* Suggests interesting "vanilla" dungeons to run
* Lore background at appropriate times
Worgen starting experience explained, Kargath, Alleria's Necklace, Nobundo, etc
* Never spoils cut-scenes or scripted events. Just heed his "must do" advice and follow his hints
* Taxi/ship/zeppelin advice for very low level players

* Excellent for first time adventurers or those wishing to slow down and savour the lore.

Getting Ready for Legion

Detailed lore for the reassessed Illidan. Also Demon Hunters, Maiev Shadowsong, Tyrande, Malfurion, the Skull of Gul'dan, the Well of Eternity, etc. And yes, Blizzard snuck some of this in as early as patch 4.0.3!!!

How to Instal
This AddOn requires the Best Quest "engine" to drive this module. Instal this module like any other AddOn. Use the installer provided by this website if you really must.

Whenever updating or installing *any* AddOn you *must* quit WoW completely, relaunch, then enjoy!

Introducing Your Guide - Tarocalypse
Tarocalypse has a penchant for noodles and dumplings but this Pandaren is well travelled and wise to the world of Azeroth. "Indeed" Tarocalypse has a few idiosyncrasies you will soon learn to love (or loathe!).

In his own words, he will alert you to "the richest of lore, the funnest of times and the choicest of rewards."

Replay

Over a currently showing frame, mouse wheel to navigate through past frames. Click mouse wheel (i.e. button 3) to jump to the most recent. Enter "/bq" in chat if no frame currently showing.

Caveats
* NOT intended for players rushing to max level or for those doing The Loremaster achievement and generally doing zones out of order.
* Complete from Vanilla through to stepping into Mount Hyjal or Vashj'ir. More to come.
* BQL may present several successive frames from the outset, as it catches up to your current situation.
* Big 4.2MB download. Includes art. All art copyright Blizzard

Extras

Enter /bql lam in chat to hear Sylvanas' hauntingly beautiful dirge, performed only to Horde adventurers.

Updates & Favourites
Why not make Best Quest Lore a Favourite and/or use Minion?

If You Like Best Quest Lore
While adventuring, always take the Best Quest option, use Tip to enhance your Tooltips, pickup a great raptor pet with Adorable Hatchling Nests, and use Hard Yards, the most accurate way to measure distance and get on the Cool Aid, the essential aid to managing your cool downs! Taraezor's main AddOn is We Don't Wipe, an excellent DPS maximiser.

Cookies, Beer & Donations
It is all about the cookies and beer although, and don't let Gallywix know about this, a "thank you" in the comments section fuels my programming appetite and is very much appreciated. And then, you could cut straight to Click here to lend your support! because as Gallywix would say... "time is money, friend".

How to Report Bugs & Suggest Improvements
Go to Tickets as your issue or idea may already have been listed. Please remove your list of AddOns from any bug dumps. Please identify the module(s) you are using. You might prefer to use the forum on this page and allow the author to decide if a ticket is necessary. It is up to you.

=====
* Cenarion Post. String error fix. Speech #48. 48m1 was 48h1

v3.04 - 2nd January 2016
=====
* Illidan in Felwood wasn't checking quest completion properly. 221/222/229
* Counts dead or ghost as being busy now
* Counts player marked as "DND" as busy now
* Counts player in scenario as busy now
* Counts player in arena as busy now
* Counts a Pet Battle as player busy now
* localised several API calls coz that's what the other programmers do. Negligible benefit IMHO
* Force requires v2.03 of main module

v3.03 - 24th December 2015
=====
* While a player is busy, the engine still allows the module to queue up frames. Better if absolutely nothing happens.
* 14 - Tanaris / Felwood / Badlands not appearing. Prerequisited itself...
* Force requires v2.01 of the main module

v3.02 - 15th December 2015
=====
* 68 - Ghostlands Welcome added
* 115/6/7 - Series renamed to Alleria, untidy DBLabel code, 115 art badly named, etc
* The extra alreadyDoingLoreExtra parameter was unnecessary. Too heavily delays everything
* Tighter condition for the Alleria Windrunner --> Sylvanas LE chain. This to maybe provide scope for a reminder down the track
* Sylvanas Lore Extra #1 added. There'll need to be much more of the Dark Lady to be Legion ready ;)
* 232 - reworded
* 230 - 238 - rename the saved frame. Fix!

v3.01 - 9th December 2015
=====
* Remove debug code. Doh!

v3.00 - 9th December 2015
=====
Major
-----
* Must use BQ main module v2.00
* Replay supported via main module v2.00
* Managed to find a free Java converter PNG->BLP. Tossed the old TGA format files. Now using BLP. 42% smaller!
* All frame code passed to BQ has had unnecessary parameters removed (due to BQ having a longer "default" list now)
* Items now have quality colours. Outland drops
* Level based logic much tighter. Players on a level boundary will receive the lower level frame first
* All instances now have sophisticated logic to display or not display. Avoids interrupting busy players, checks achievement, etc
* 3 series - Westfall/Darkshore/LM/BI travel advice revamped for Alliance
* 5 series - Silverpine/Ghostlands/Azshara travel advice revamped for Horde
* 6 series - Wetlands/Dusk/Ashenvale travel advice revamped for Alliance
* 7 series - Hillsbrad/Ashenvale travel advice revamped for Horde
* 11 series - Feral/WestPlag/DustMarsh travel advice revamped
* Illidan lore extra in Felwood no longer requires Maiev Shadowsong part #2 (or even #1) having been completed
* Added Lore Extra - first part of Well of Eternity / Night Elf birth / Quel'dorei
* Added Lore Extra - Garona
* Restructure logic and code placement of Windrunner sisters and Nobundo
* 202 - invite to Maw in Darkshore redone. Covers all situations now

Minor
-----
* 12 Nat Pagle is not so aggressive when you ding or first start the AddOn. Now delayed somewhat lol
* 23 & 41 presented in the wrong order (Deadmines)
* 68 - Mana Tombs intro. Introducing that it has no lore... = useless. So deleted. Lol
* 77 - The Black Morass. Completely changed the wording. Positive about helping Medivh. The rubbish hinting at lore inconsistencies removed. Pedantic or Purest at best it was.
* 91 - Firey to fiery and edited down text so it will fit in ultra small screens
* 93 - Extra "." typo
* 112 - remove mention of translocating and instead just say Ghostlands. More generic so text suits more players
* 122 - Remove Bladefist Bay from Kargath triggers. Can happen to players on a Zep and they will miss some of it :(
* 127 - Slight rewording of Staat's Pole quest to make text also appropriate for players already pretty much at his location and his name is "Staats", not "Staat"
* 158 - SFK instance - added a possessive apostrophe
* 206 - Now gives a nod to player of previous lore extra completion
* 208 to 211, 239 - Pantheon alpha changed from 0.6 to 1 (i.e. to maximum brighter)
* 211 - missing "," typo
* 230 - Worgen lore starter - for SFK instance trigger, added health check as I suspect that the out of instance zone check will be passed if the player is dead. Need the player to be really done before triggering #230

v2.02 - 27th November 2015
=====
* 21 - DEHTA suggestion from Zangarmarsh added. 25m delay.
* Skinny squish of loading screen graphics fixed. For future ref: W = 0.66583 x H, calibrated against Akama's head on the Outland2 loading screen game file.
* At certain extremely small screen dimensions, WoW fonts do NOT scale properly. So, on frames with full text I have had to edit them down. Too many to list
* Took the opportunity to improve text where possible
* Emotes / actions use < coughs > instead of ( coughs ) to conform to Blizzard standards
* 103 - Mantle of Autumn, a popular druid tmog piece, added to The Botanica loot list
* 126 - Alter to push player more to Borean Tundra than Howling Fjord
* Shadowfang Keep added as part of BQLs major fleshing out of the Worgen experience
* Northrend content added. Borean Tundra and Dragonblight very complete and detailed. Howling Fjord and Grizzly Hills acknowledged
* Worgen lore extra added. Multiple trigger points. Independent of any existing LE chain. Explains content of worgen starting experience up to "turning"
* 28 Stratholme - note that the mount drop is a unique SKELETAL horse for ALLIANCE
* 93 - Used wrong map ID for the Hellfire Ramparts instance
* Delay logic to not bombard players so much. Immediately on entering zone but quite some delay on a ding and a smallish delay on entering an instance

v2.01 - 15th November 2015
=====
* One instance of Barrow Deep changed to Barrow Deeps
* 201 - Added fun text "Going Down anyone?" as players get this achievement when jumping into the vortex
* 203 - Typo
* 15 - Text altered to emphasise the optional quest chain starting at the vortex near Lor'danel in Darkshore
* 12 - Nat's Lucky Fishing Pole didn't need to check quest 13826 so that code removed to keep things tidy
* Fishing Poles 127/128/129 added
* Illidan Stormrage 221 to 229 added
* Annoying "Greetings wanderer" for a succession of extra lore panels removed as annoying

v2.00 - 12th November 2015
=====

* Too many changes to note individually
* Engine now supports the fading (i.e. alpha channel) of background art
* No map backgrounds, now using art from game files plus art from Images folder, from Blizzard sources
* Some art removed from Images folder as a good game file substitute was found
* Some new art added to the Images folder
* Art style completely altered. Now full frame
* Coloured text to assist readability
* Complete up to leaving Outland for Northrend
* Existing dialogue tweaked here and there
* Tons of new dialogue. 1 to 126, 200 to 220
* Gear and lore advice and info for all worthwhile dungeons.
* Few now lore and reward dialogues removed, for insertion in a different module
* "Extra" lore chain added. Gives four or five or more successive dialogues per topic. Timed delays
* Able to alter this timed delay in game
* Requires a minimum BQ (main) version number now

v1.03
=====
* Dialog #11 (Feralas/WP/DWM choice) now mentions green dragonflight. Had to do this given the green focus in the Legion Expansion. I guess pushing players a little more to do Feralas.
* Logic for 11x2 (Nat's Lucky Fishing Pole) altered a little to safeguard against unnecessary nagging. Now checks quest log
* Dialog #18 revamped to boost the Swamp of Sorrows. Green Dragonflight vs Atal'ai / Hakkari trolls etc.
* #30 the Sunken Temple completely redone. Removed all the negativity about Blizzard emasculating the instance and instead give a summary of the history not really told in the game itself. Added extensive logic to guide the player through the external quest chain.
* Added Dialogs 31 to 84
* Added Outland up to and including Terokkar. Introductions to others. Interesting Dungeons done. Mags raid done.
* Other end game vanilla tweaked/expanded/redone
* Tarocalypse has new portrait
* Expanded sounds
* Added old Blizzard Login screens and Blizzard wallpapers and own screenshots (all edited)
* Stratholme upper limit set to 56 from 52 (to cover both)
* Blackrock Depths upper limit set to 61 from 57 (to cover both)

v1.02
=====
* Debug hard code level removed Doh!

v1.01
=====
* Typo: Orb of Relocation now the Orb of Translocation in speeches 5x2, 7x2, 7x3
* Damaged Necklace quest added for Ghostlands/Undercity
* 1x1 had 'prerequisite' replaced with 'showing' parameter. Better to ensure sound matches dialogue and plays only as necessary
* Various dialogues would NEVER appear if player had coincidentally begun using BQL at certain levels. Fixed
* Brazie coords added. Not a pet module, it is about quests BUT Brazie does offer quests :/
* The "Slow down" SFX in 18x1 was too quick at 5s. Now 10s

v1.00 - 6th July 2915
=====
* Initial version
Optional Files (0)

v3.09

A few typos fixed here and there plus some new content.

BQL's in game NPC, Tarocalypse, has gone a bit feral. Or at least has had a brain explosion. He has taken it upon himself to explain all that stuff about alternate realities / universes, the Twisting Nether, planes of existence, time travel and all that other stuff we struggle to get our head around.

He does actually make sense of it, using quite a good metaphor.

Tarocalypse also welcomes you into Vashj'ir and Mount Hyjal and that is pretty much as far as BQL has gotten up to now.

(As Pandaria and WoW pretty much stand by themselves lore wise, the focus for me will be on integrating the world up to and including Cata into Legion. Legion draws heavily upon lore up to that point. Thus more background on NPCs and so forth)

The thing about Tarocalypse above is to prepare you for explaining away how we have Main Universe / Alternate Universe and yet some NPCs may seem to cross over between the two.

Why did Blizzard feel the need to do this. Sigh.

Lore n Stuff

Just putting this out there. If anyone thinks the lore is wrong please post your concerns.

If you are not sure where you stand then the cautious approach is okay too - PM me.

The timeline was very very carefully researched by me and obviously I have tried to delve into lore that is mostly NOT IN THE GAME.

There is no other timeline anywhere on the net which is so comprehensive.

Over time Blizzard have corrected and adjusted ("retconned") lore. And sometimes it just becomes obvious to fans that certain documents considered canon are now quite superseded.

Anything that needs to be included - just say please.

WARNING: The next release includes an explanation of "different universes", planes of existence, time travel, Twisting Nether, etc.

Blizzard have never really tried to tie ALL this together into a COHERENT whole and the positioning of the Draenor in WoD has never really been clarified by them.

Thus my attempt must strictly be regarded as speculation.

Many thanks for the report. Didn't see this until after I uploaded v3.08. You are using v3.06. Heck I am hoping it got resolved. v3.07/v3.08 did include a couple of bug fixes, as well as a ton of new content.

Looking at the next major update completing Northrend.

Lots of changes to the timing of when frames pop up. Especially the timing of dungeon related frames whilst also in a BG/dungeon/raid/combat etc. Basically, won't happen or will happen on delay or has to happen as outlines the loot in the dungeon, for example.

Also, the size of the graphics has markedly decreased as I am now able to use Blizzards preferred format, known as "Warcraft III" format, aka "BLP". Currently I use a secondary acceptable format, "TGA" which saves 32 bits per pixel = massive file size.

You try finding a free PNG<->BLP converter for Mac OSX!

Was 8MB download. Now 3.5MB (even with a couple of new art pieces!)

Also timing and wording of the very early level travel advice, such as how to get from Darkshore to Duskwood, has been totally revamped.

Plus a ton of other stuff.

Plus some new content too.

Thanks for the updates. I use Best Quest with Storyline. I think they work well together.

v1.05

Had to edit down lots of frames as I hadn't allowed for really small screen window dimensions. In my opinion unplayable like that but thought I should allow for it nevertheless.

(The fonts in WoW don't smoothly scale like graphics. They do scale but in big steps. Display any text in game and then decrease the screen window size a few pixels at a time to see what I mean. Annoying lol)

PLUS added a ton of new content.

v1.03

As per change log. I noticed after upload that the Feralas changes ended up somehow not being the final version I had worked on. Doh! So currently the text overflows the frame / messy.

Upgraded background artwork to all the dialogs really enhances the look of each frame.

New screenshots uploaded too.

Currently working on Nagrand etc to push through to the start of WotLK ideally, for the next upload.

At that stage the plan is to go back and perfect any rough edges of work already done. For example, I didn't mention each zone's three rare spawns in Outland. Some but not all. And advice about good herb/ore/skin farming is patchy. Although that should really be a module all by itself. Hardly to do with "lore".

I am aware that a few pockets of lore are missing in Vanilla. The elves in Dire Maul are quite unique. That dwarf area in Southern Barrens has a story to be told. Thunderaan versus Rags needs to be told. Ravenholdt. Taurens need some love. Etc etc etc.

Thanks. Yeah, the part of Outland I have done, for example, had only ever been played by me as Horde so I know where you are at there!

Many thanks. Juggling several things but next up to do is Outlands.

This will be a challenge as Outlands, for me, had not much to offer in some zones (Hellfire anyone?) whilst others had a few interesting quest chains (Nagrand Horde quest chain involving Thrall's grandmother etc).

v1.01 & v1.02

Various minor bug fixes as per the change log. Yup, v1.01 lived for only a couple of minutes. Had a hard coded player level left over from testing. Doh!

Alas, I can't help with Blood Elves; the last time I made a toon in that area was in the early days of Cataclysm, and I have very little memory, and also no clue what it might have been like before.
Many thanks for your comments. Yeah. This arose because, like you, I had a hard job remembering everything.

The number of times I had regretted levelling in a boring area or grinding the same old instance and then remembered that cool area to level in, etc.
