Questie ~ The Classic Quest Helper

This version of Questie is still under HEAVY development. it receives several updates each day on GitHub. The builds on here will be updated weekly, but if you want the latest fixes make sure to check there: https://github.com/AeroScripts/QuestieDev

Make sure the questie folder is named "Questie", you shouldn't need to rename anything

If you have any issues make sure to check the FAQ (needs to be updated for classic), or post an issue to the issue tracker. You can also chat with us on discord and post bugs there.

Questie is a quest helper for Classic World of Warcraft. It adds icons to the map for the quests in your log, and shows what quests you can pick up. It's not a guide, but we plan to add integration for any classic guide addons to make sure they work well with questie.

Currently, most of the 1.12 features have been ported in, but a few things may be missing

If you find any bugs or problems please post them to the GitHub issue tracker, or in #beta-bugs on discord. Now is also the time for feature requests and suggestions as everything needs to be redone, if you have any ideas we're open to hearing them

v4.1.1 - You must restart the game to install this update!
- Add support for profession quests
- Fix the "enable tracker" checkbox not working without /reload

Fix compatibility with the following mods (Some others may be fixed also)
- QuestGuru
- Classic Quest Log

- Add the Questie tracker, this adds many functions, and allows you to track more than 5 quests. Make sure to check out the right-click menu
Some key features of the tracker:
- Focus Quest/Objective: This can be used to highlight the specific quest or objective
- Show on Map: This will open the map show/highlight the quest or objective. If the quest is finished it will show the turn-in location
- Shortcuts to show in quest log / set TomTom target
- Hide specific quests or objectives from the map
- "Automatically track all quests" will fill the tracker with your current quest log by default. You can un-track quests by shift-clicking them or from the tracker right-click menu
- Move it with ctrl+leftclick

WARNING: If you enable the questie tracker, please disable "modern quest watch" as it can cause issues with the tracker, this will be fixed in a future update

- Blacklist many endgame quests that aren't available in this phase (please keep reporting these!)

- Add a warning when updating to a version that has new source files. Normally updating without restarting the game is safe, but not always. If we add new source files, the game can't load those new files in until it restarts which can cause a lot of problems

- Show tooltips on items for finished objectives, so its easier to tell what quest the items are for

- Add function to reset questie without /reload. You can do this by CTRL+Clicking the questie minimap button or /questie reload

Not all names are pulled in for each language, but most of them should be

- Add "Shift+Click to hide" for available quests. Please report bad quests sill so we can correct them in the database
TIP: Press shift to read a brief description of the quest!

- Import new spawn database, including NPC faction data. This should fix quests that have a specific quest giver for each faction

- Fix "Search for Incendicite" incorrectly indicating that spiders drop ore (they don't)
- Fix "Burning Key" drop table
- The updated spawn DB should fix a number of bad quests

Thanks to everyone who submitted translations! Translation data is still needed for NPC names and quest text in these languages, but that's coming.

Quest tracker

For the tracker, might want to limit the line length or add in a wrap around(I'd rather line length myself). Doing the Druid quest for bear form and it's super long.

Also CLUCK! Someone killed the chicken before I could turn in and now it's all over the map after I got it from another chicken and turned in(got the egg).

members joined error

when looking at my journey (great feature!) it shows my other two companions that have joined me on my journey. except it just duplicates one of them and lists them twice instead of listing each of them. wanted to point it out in case there is a snippet of code that is incorrect.

map icons

I untrack some quests that are to high level for me but they're icons still clutter my maps. Is it possible to tie this into the icons so untracked quests won't show on both the mini map and big map?

Not sure if this or CurseForge is your primary release spot, so posting this here as well:

When you're registering the Questie minimap icon in LBD, you're calling it something generic like "MinimapIcon" -- would be better to register it as "Questie" :-)

Easy fix, line 1276 in Questie.lua, change the first parameter to the LibStub NewDataObject() call to be "Questie", like:

Lua Code:
  1. local minimapIconLDB = LibStub("LibDataBroker-1.1"):NewDataObject("Questie", {

Question Tracker UI Request

Hey Guys. Love your work.
Just have 1 request that I have seen so far and that is can we get a background on the quest tracking window please that stays without having to hover over it. Can be really had to read at times.

I could not find an option for it in the 'tracker' tab, but if it does exist and I have missed it somewhere, please point me to it.

It is movable. Hold Ctrl and left click and drag the box.

Quest tracker became totally broken after blizzard night servers update. All tracking quests just disappear from screen a few seconds after login. And doesn't show check marks on tracking quest in quest log. Fixed that shit with disabling Questie quest trafcking module.

Absolutely irrelevant due to the high RAM values on computers these days, but is this supposed to eat 80MB+ of addon memory? It legit eats more than all my other addons combined, and I have a boatload of 'em. Not complaining, just found it weird.

Thanks for the addon.

A few things I miss:

- mark daily quests with blue ? and !
- Sunken Temple class quests are not in game yet
- an option to not display stuff on map and minimap if you already got all of the quest-items
- the quest [Tempel of Atal'Hakar] shows the objects on the swamp map while it is inside the instance
- the quest [Badlands Reagent Run II] is only avaible if you are alchemist

Available quest is not available

I have a small issue. I'm a gnome warlock. Therefore I did the warlock quests starting from Dun Morogh.

However the quest in the human starting area "The Stolen Tome" still shows up on my map despite that I cannot actually acquire this quest (it seems it teaches "summon imp", which the Dun Morogh quest "Beginnings" does).

Is it possible to detect that? If not (or in addition to) is it possible to flag a quest as "ignore" so I can stop seeing it on my map. I'm a completionist so I still let low level quests be visible. I made sure to get the latest version and reload the game to see if this was already handled.

(Also after updating my repeatables came back. Is there a proper way to update? I removed the previous version)

But this is a great add on, thanks so much for making it!
