About MonkeyQuest:

The MonkeyQuest AddOn for World of WarCraft displays quests and their objectives in a nice drag able frame in a very customizable way.

  • Option to display the quest overview if there's no objectives.
  • Clicking on quests brings up the real quest log with that quest selected.
  • Displays the quest level in the quest title.
  • Elite quests display a ' ' in the level of the quest.
  • Completed quests show a '(Completed)' in the quest title.
  • Quest area headers are displayed.
  • Clicking on a quest area header collapses or expands it.
  • Check boxes next to quests allow hiding/showing of that quest.
  • Check box to toggle displaying collapsed quest area headers and hidden quests.
  • Close and minimize buttons.
  • Quest objective coloring.
  • Quest objective coloring for special 'friendly/hostile' type objectives.
  • Special quest objective coloring for 'find an area' type objectives.
  • Nice font for increased readability.
  • No additional buttons or options are displayed in the real quest log.
  • Option to always hide quest area headers.
  • New slash command for hiding the border.
  • Key bindings for toggle hidden, minimize, and close.
  • Slash command to change the expand direction, up or down (thanks Diungo)

  • Shift-right clicking on quests to add your current quest objective data to the chat edit box if it's open.

  • Integration with MonkeyBuddy for configuration.
  • Font size setting.
  • Option to turn off right-click to open MonkeyBuddy.

  • Quest Items now show up in tooltips. Mousing over targets you need for quests will show 'Quest Item XX/YY' in the tooltip. Same for items you need for quests.

    (** Currently doesn't update if MonkeyQuest is closed or minimized **)

  • Dungeon quests display a 'd' in the level of the quest.
  • Raid quests display an 'r' in the level of the quest.
  • Party members show up in the quest overview tooltip. If they have that quest they'll be displayed in the 100% objective color.
  • If the current sub-zone name appears in the quest overview, the quest will highlight.

    the only thing i'm missing is the progress bar for garrison apexis daily/zone objectives, even if it were a percentage indicator instead of the bar.

    this would make it perfect.

    is there a way to select a mission so that thos of use that use dugi questing guide can select which mission our arrow points to?

  • #1148

    Can you tell me how to install once downloaded to my computer please.

  • #1146

    So far I mostly like this add-on, but there is this one thing that is annoying me right now. I can not click the quest item icons on it to use them. I always have to go to my bag or use it in the defualt side bar.  Is there a way you make it so you can use it or am I missing an option to enable it?

    I am having the same issue. I love this! But uninstalled due to having to redirect to find a quest location on the map through basic wow quest log or the map. Please fix if possible! 

  • #1143

    Edit MonkeyQuest.lua and search for the "PlaySoundFile" reference (4 in total) and change the "wav" file extension into "ogg".

    Peon and Peasant sounds are back :)

    You're welcome Jim-Bim, looking forward to see your next release for the 6.2 patch!

  • #1141

    Where's my "work complete" sound? :D

  • #1142

    I'm wondering about that too

  • #1140

    So, I downloaded this, but I disabled it for a bit, but now the default blizz quest log and Ui are gon, and I can't reenable the default blizz quest tracker, anyone know how to get blizz default quest tracker back?


    I disabled it because theres no "click here to complete" window, I have to open my quest log to do so, unless I'm missing something..

    When  clicking on any of the headings in the quest frame, the game lages for about 1 second.  Something is definitely wrong but I'm not seeing any errors, just really bad lag since installing this.  Let me know if there's anything else I can provide to help troubleshoot this.  I do have Dugi's quest addon installed as well, however before I didn't have any lag, but with MQ it is extremely noticeable.

  • #1138

    MonkeyQuest creates lag when in combat with several mobs

  • #1136


    I dont know if its been reported yet, but the MQ doesnt show the progress bar of the daily garrison quests. Would be nice to have this imlemented.

  • #1135

    Thank you for this great addon.

    I have a suggestion for a future update.

    Is it possible that you can see the progress of a group member in the quest list? For example. Player A killed 5/10 fly. Next to or down there then shows player B 3/10 Flying killed.

    Sorry for my English. But I hope you understand what I mean.
