About Loremaster

New Loremaster

Starting with the Loremaster release for 5.4, Loremaster will require the use of the Grail addon to provide quest data. The interface and functionality will remain basically the same, but because quest information will be taken from Grail, the goal is to provide more up-to-date information for Loremaster. Please create a ticket if you find problems with the quest information. If there are interface problems, or functionality problems with Loremaster please comment here.

Loremaster

Loremaster helps you locate any quests you are missing from any Loremaster achievement. The database contains over 5,600 quests extracted from Wowhead but excludes any that do not count towards a Loremaster achievement. Please note this addon is intended to be used after you have finished questing through the usual methods and are looking for quests to complete the achievement. If you try to use it an area you haven't quested in before, it will get very confusing, very quickly.

Loremaster also includes an option to display the locations of questgivers for incomplete quests on the main game map.

Please note: Loremaster does not know if you have completed any prerequisite breadcrumb trails or achieved any required faction levels, that's up to you to determine with the help of the information that Loremaster presents to you.

Loremaster is a standalone addon, but is much more effective when used with excellent TomTom and LightHeaded addons which Loremaster will interact with.

If LightHeaded is not installed, Loremaster will generate a link for the selected quest that you can paste into your web browser to take you straight to the relevant page on Wowhead.

Using Loremaster

Loremaster can be displayed using one of three methods

  1. Open your Quest Log and click the Loremaster button at the bottom
  2. Click the Data Broker button if you have a data broker addon installed (see below)
  3. Type /lm or /lm show

Quests are colour coded as follows:

  • The quest begins a series
  • <White> The quest is a standalone quest
  • The quest begins with an item drop
  • The quest is part of a series

Bug Reports / Change Requests

If you find any bugs, any quest information that is incorrect (wrong zone, doesn't count for Loremaster, quest missing etc), or have any new feature requests, please use this link to report them:

Data Broker

Loremaster includes Data Broker support. This provides one click access to the interface and right click access to a drop down menu.

NOTE: To see the Data Broker features, you will need to use a Data Broker Display addon, such as Bazooka, Button Bin, Fortress or Chocolate Bar.

Slash commands

Loremaster supports /lm or /loremaster

  • /lm or /lm show - Display the Loremaster interface
  • /lm hide - Hide the Loremaster interface
  • /lm reset - Reset and rebuild Loremaster's available quest list

Locales

Loremaster is currently localised for enUS, ruRU, frFR and deDE. If you would like to contribute to translating Loremaster, please use the following link:

Please note that the quest names and NPC names are not included in the locale and will still appear in English.

    This addon isn't working the way I remember it.

    You used to just have to open your quest pane, click the new loremaster button to open the addon, and there was a button to have it scan and update your quests. After that everything was fantastic. I don't see this button anymore. I have tried right clicking the minimap button and using the "reset loremaster" option but it seems like it isn't working.

    The biggest feature I'm missing right now is quest marker icons on my world map. They show up in some zones, but not the ones I'm currently trying to complete. Yes, I did see the section about this in the addon's option menu. Still not getting it completely working and not sure why. =/

  • #168

    Loremaster now uses Grail as its quest database.  Grail should automatically obtain the information about what quests you have completed.  There are times when another addon may have requested the server to provide this information before Grail can get access to it, which could cause problems.  If you feel Grail is not showing you the quests you feel you should be seeing you can use the slash command "/grail" to ask the server for its completed quest list.  This should cause Loremaster to display the proper quests.

    I am not sure why you may be seeing some zones with incorrect quest pins while others correct.  If you can provide more information about what quests you think you should be seeing but are not, please file a ticket for Loremaster or Grail.

    You can also use the addon Wholly to verify quests that you should be seeing.  Wholly does not limit the quests to only those involved in obtaining the various Loremaster achievements, and can show all the quests and their status with regard to your character.  It also shows map pins so you can compare what Wholly shows you to what Loremaster does, and perhaps provide that information in your ticket as well.

    Quote from Nimhfree »

    Could this only be affecting your Pandaria zones?  I have been able to reproduce it with them, so I will try to track it down.  Pandaria is different from the rest of the older zones in how it handles achievements and Grail treats them differently.

    You're right about this. I loaded up Loremaster and Grail on an alt and his Kalimdor map is full of quest icons from Loremaster doing its thing.

  • #171

    I found the problem in Grail and have fixed it for the next release.

    Loremaster uses the achievement ID to display the quests in the panel, but the map area ID to display the pins on the map.  Grail dynamically creates the list of quests involved in the Pandaria achievements, and it was only creating the list for the achievement ID and not mapping those into the map area ID.

    I see messages in my chat when I log in that Grail completed its query just fine. I came to the realization that Loremaster isn't showing quest icons on my map at all, those showed up even with the addon turned off (a few in kun-lai summit). Must be wow or another addon doing it.

    I toggled around Loremaster options with no luck. Disabled Loremaster and installed Wholly as you suggested, and it put marks all over my map as I had wanted. So I may just go that route. That is your addon too, right? So either way you're still my hero. =p

    I guess I could also try a completely fresh install of Loremaster and delete addon settings. Don't have many other ideas.

  • #166

    sorry i did not read it good at the first time i just discover i need a another add on now it works 

  • #164

    The add on is not working. I have just installed it but at the add ons the name of your add on is writen in red and says that:   dependency missing.   Dependencys Grail

  • #165

    As stated in the first paragraph of the description above and in my last comment below, Loremaster now requires the Grail addon to function.

    You can get Grail from here:  http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/grail/

    This is because the Loremaster database has been changed by Nimhfree to improve maintainability

  • #162

    I like this app. It was really helpful. I just think its needs two things fixed. One it should show the series starter quest listed and then sub the followup quest under it,. Second it should put the quest in order of where the faction starts. These two things would make it a much nicer add-on.

  • #163

    You might want to checkout the addon Wholly as well.  It will tell you prerequisites and the first in the prerequisite chain of quests.

  • #160

    Apologies to those of you with current issues. I haven't played WoW for 18 months and am struggling to find the time to keep my addons up to date.

    I have been trying to find someone to take over my addons (any or all) but have so far been unsuccessful. If anyone is interested, or knows anyone who is, please get them to PM me.

    Thanks for your support.

    *** UPDATE ***

    currently in discussions with another developer re taking over Loremaster. Watch this space. :-)

    The ongoing maintenance of Loremaster has now been taken over by Nimhfree.

    Please note, Loremaster now requires the Grail addon which is being used as its quest database.

  • #158

    Getting the error "Failed loading the Loremaster data addon". Scoured the net, and haven't been able to find a fix. If there is one, could someone point me in the direction, or post please, thanks.

  • #159

    Loremaster actually consists of two addons - this error suggest that for some reason you are missing one, namely Loremaster_Data - it should be installed by default as part of the standard package. I'd suggest redownloading it and trying again.
