Quest Tooltip not appearing after recent patch
Bug #: 7497
File: Who Framed Watcher Wabbit?

Status: Game Bug (Cant fix)
FYI - I'm using both TipTop and Watcher Wabbit. Both are up to date. I'm running WoW version 4.2.0.

After the patch on 8/8/11, the line in the tooltip which shows quest progress no longer appears. For example, if I have a quest to collect 30 arrakoa feathers, the tooltip should show
Arrakoa Feathers .... 2/30 (or however many I have)
from mobs which drop those feathers. Instead, it shows nothing.

Also, if I'm watching a specific Achievement, that Achievement now appears for all my characters. For example, I'm tracking quests in Terrokar - that achievement shows up in the Watch frame for all 10 alts, even if I'd previously enabled a different achievement to track for each of them.

WFWW has absolutely nothing to do with either of those things. The text in the tooltip is default UI - perhaps there's a setting for it in Interface Options? The achievement thing is something to report to Blizz as a bug.

/edit: unless you have an achievement addon that may be doing it

Thanks for the reply. I can see that I misread something in WFWW's description that made me think it was adding the line about objective progress to the tooltip, but now I see that it wasn't.

Are you sure that line with objective progress is a default part of the UI? I tried turning all my mods off and running the default interface but I still can't see objectives in the tooltip. I went through all the tooltip options listed in the Interface>Help! menu too.

It worked on Monday and now it doesn't ... I'm not sure what I'm missing here.

Yes, I'm sure. It's a feature that was added with 3.0. Have you tried running the repair tool for WoW?

Yes, but it doesn't seem to have helped. I also tried renaming my WTF and Interface folders, and loading from scratch, and I still can't see the objective text on the tooltip.

Thanks for your help - I'll post about this at Ace. Maybe a bigger net will find the answer.
