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.


  • Mousing over quests shows the overview in a tooltip.
  • 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.
  • Option to display the number of free quest slots.

  • Integration with MonkeyBuddy for configuration.
  • Font size setting.

  • 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.

    it is a quest tracker...

  • #1057

    To be a perfect questing addon it just needs:

    - A profile manager and some way to share settings across toons (I couldnt do using monkey buddy);

    - Auto accept and turn-in (when no reward need to be choosen);

    Thank you for this great addon.

  • #1066

    jim-bim graciously keeps the mod alive between patches/expansions but does not typically add features because it means some re-write of the code.  As for your second request mods cannot automate anything because this breaks the tos.  No automation of any kind is allowed in wow you have click if you must click there is no way around it without breaking the tos.


  • #1069

    I checked into that and it looks there are a lot more than those 2.  I guess blizzard has relaxed their tos about automation in the game.  The first one you mentioned AutoTurnIn is a pretty complex layout.  It will autu turn in quests with or without something to choose.  It apparently even picks the best loot for your character to if nothing available it grabs the highest selling item.  Very interesting to say the least thanks for pointing out my error there just was not aware they relaxed the rules.

  • #1068

    Actually this type of automation does not appear to be illegal via ToS there is 2 mods that I know of here on Curse for exactly what he is asking for, one is "AutoTurnIn", and the other one is "Turn In". The first one being the better of the 2.

  • #1054

    How do you  hide the default blizzard quest tracker? Right now, i have monkeybar + default blizzard watchframe. 

  • #1056

    Just stop automatic quest tracking and make sure no quest is checked in your questlog.

  • #1052

    I got this while using MonkeyQuest to abandon a quest.

    This should be fixed in v2.9.20.

  • #1049

    All reported errors should be fixed in v2.9.20. Please keep reporting problems ;)

    I'd also love it if you there was a way to limit the number of quests shown (eg only the ones green and up). Does it support achievements tracking?

  • #1050

    Achievements are not supported. To quickly hide quests, you can only show checked quests and hide quests with a rightclick or unchecking it. I might add a feature to automatically uncheck grey quests.

  • #1051

    i'd love it if you could add achiev tracking at some point :)


  • #1047

    Produces an error when you mouse over a quest and you're in a group.  Looks like when it tries to tell you if other people in the group have the quest is when the error happens.

  • #1046

    I noticed that there are no options for the questlevels, raid, dungeon, group, or any other kind of indicators. Were these removed for a particular reason? I hope they make their way back in...
