    (** 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.

    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.


  • #1133

    Just uploaded a new version, but haven't figured out a simple way to make quest items workable like they used to. They do work if they use SecureButtonTemplate, but it totally breaks MonkeyQuests ability to update the MonkeyQuest frame during combat.

    One solution might be an independent frame (where the items are not part of the default frame), but that would feel like a standalone addon, so you could just use another addon.

    Another solution might be to auto track only quests with useable quest items, so you can use the buttons in the objective tracker from Blizzard.

    What do you think? Other ideas are always welcome!

  • #1137

    Maybe take a peek at Sorha Questlog or ask the author, he seems to have resolved the thing with quest items.

  • #1134

    I think the idea of a separate frame is a decent fix.  it could simply have the quest name and the item required for use.  Been using this addon for years, and after a long break I was happy to see it was still being maintained!

  • #1129

    Is there any way to disable hiding quests with right-click, if not could it be something you would add? its very easy to accidently right-click a quest and since i prefer to hide the title buttons its quite an annoyance getting the quest back.

  • #1130

    That's an option now, enjoy!

  • #1127

    First, I'd like to say thank you. This was the first addon I ever installed back in vanilla and I've been using it ever since.

    When Show Hidden Items is checked, right clicking on a quest toggles show/hide.  When unchecked, right click still sets a quest to hide, but since its hidden you can't toggle it back ... I don't know if its always worked like that, but it seems like a person could potentiall misclick and hide a quest on accident and maybe not realize it.  Would it be possible to have (either as default behavior or if that's how its worked forever an option) right click only toggle that checkbox when Show Hidden Items is true?

    I generally prefer to keep the games' Objectives tracker closed and rely on Monkey Quest. But I have noticed one thing lately in Objectives that is useful, which is the ability to select which quest is the active one for the direction arrow in the minimap.  I'd love to be able to make that selection in Monkey Quest.  Maybe even just use the same icons in a new column on the right (the question marks and/or numbers).

    If that would require a lot of work, then perhaps another option could involve using Monkey Quest to help manage the list of quests being shown in Objectives. Something where quests would be tracked or not depending on if they were visible or hidden in Monkey Quest.

  • #1131

    Hiding quests with right click when not showing hidden items is now an option.

    Features which work with the objective tracker might be added later.

  • #1125

    I came to say that my quest items don't work, but I can see from the comments that you're already working hard to fix that. I'll be patient. Thank you so much <3
