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 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


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.


  • Logical/Martin for help with bugs and data collection
  • StingerSoft/KVVV for the Russian translation
  • Rylanor for the French translation
  • Eerazor for the German translation
  • Iollan for quest corrections and testing

Changes to support WoD.
Changes LoremasterMainFrame to Loremaster.MainFrame so references should exist.

Adds a Loremaster button to the top of Blizzard's new quest panel in the map.
Moves some initialization to ADDON_LOADED to work around a reported problem with the /lm slash command.

    Thanks for your attention, and for cleaning up after my mess...


  • #146

    I ended up deleting the addon and reinstalling it and it works again.

  • #147

    That error is very strange. It's pointing to AddOns\loremaster\Core.lua, firstly, it should be Loremaster, not loremaster, but more importantly, Loremaster does not have a Core.lua -is there another conflicting addon with same name?

  • #144

    does it work in 5.1 ?

  • #143

    Okay got it figured out.. Sometime you can't see the trees for the forest.

  • #142

    This may sound stupid, but I'm trying to size the Loremaster window larger as well, but haven't found the Loremaster "OPTIONS".  

  • #140

    having a problem with this addon since the 5.1 release because it is out of date and i am unable to load out of date addons...any ideas

  • #141

    Patience young padawan! Oh wait, wrong game ;-)

    The latest update will resolve that problem for you.

  • #138

    This is so small on my screen I cannot even see it. How can I make the interface larger?

  • #139

    Go into Loremaster's options and adjust the scale slider to your liking

  • #137

    If you have completed Loremaster on any other character, then all achievements will be hidden. To show them, uncheck the option in Loremaster's settings.

  • #135

    Thanks for all the bug information everyone. Loremaster is now working again. Pandaria quests will remain disabled for the time being though as I still do not have enough quest data available. I've also fixed Loremaster Collector so this should help towards the goal of collecting the data I need.

    Thank you to those who have provided information. Why this does not fail on my machine I'm not sure right now - it certainly should do. I've fixed this bug and will release the new version shortly, however, please note that as this bug did not show up on my machine there may be others.

    I'm sorry, please report any you find and thank you for your patience.
