About QuestGuru

QuestGuru is a Quest Log enhancer.

Features include:

  • Enhanced quest display in the log
  • Patch 6.0 broke QuestGuru, so this is a completely different monster
  • Conforms to the WOD map quest log (Tooltips for quests and icons showing quest status)
  • Added full time quest level in front of quest name

For those who are missing the Quest Tracker of QuestGuru, try Sorha Quest Log I have been using it for a little while and is not half bad :)

TO-DO's:

  • Will try and revamp the quest tracker as I love it also. But wanted to get the Log out ASAP.
  • Try to bring back the other features of the old QuestGuru (Sounds, announcements, etc.)

F A Q

Q. How do I post a Bug Report?

  • A1 - Click on QuestGuru Go to the AddOn and on the right side there is a selection called "Bugs" click on that. You will need to be signed in to WoW Interface to create a bug report.
  • A2 - Or file a ticket on QuestGuru@CurseForge
  • Note:
  • Please include the version of QuestGuru you are using and copy/paste the error message you receive.
  • Please describe what you were doing when the error happened. This will help tremendously.

Q. How do I turn on auto-tracking of quests?

  • A - Look in the options for the game itself, not QuestGuru. Under Objectives there are options to set when to track quests.
  • QuestGuru does not duplicate these settings in its own options as it could become problematic and it is not necessary to duplicate options already available.

Q. Where can I find a version compatible with WoW patch x?

  • A. QuestGuru is supported for the current Expansion and Patch level running on the live servers. PTR versions may be supported as Alpha or Beta releases, but I offer no guarantee.

QuestGuru ChangeLog
===================

Version 2.3.06
-------------

Reports of problems came in.
Went thru with fine toothed comb and got them beggars outta here.

Version 2.3.04
-------------
Changed versioning numbers (got rid of -6000). Repaired some minor bugs, introduced QuestGuru's version number and player's name, level and class to title bar  :) Added sound to collapsing and expanding quest zone / type headers.

Version 2.3.02-60000
-------------
Found corruption in zip file, fixed and uploaded tested and working copy

Version 2.3.01-60000
-------------
Massive rework of the QuestGuru code. Right now the tracker is not working :(

Version 2.2.18-50400
-------------
QuestGuru
  (no changes)
QuestGuru_Tracker
* Normalizing the version numbers between QuestGuru & QuestGuru_Tracker to the same value.  This will be the main change log henceforth.
* fix Achievement to ignore update events that happen during portals (between leaving and entering world events)
  The update event would fire, but Blizzard was reporting no achievements during that time so the QGT would
  "UnTrack" the Achievements and so there would be none when the display tried to update (and therefore currLine was zero and j was nil)
* Look at the oldChangeLog in QuestGuru_Tracker for older updates to the tracker

Version 2.2.17-50400 (QuestGuru)
-------------
* Changing the Version number so Curse will see that it's different

Version 1.5.16-50400 (QuestGuru_Tracker)
-------------
* fix QGT_Achievement.lua to handle Blizzard not returning an integer value on the slider

Version 2.2.16-50400 (QuestGuru)
-------------
* Removed a bit of diagnostic code accidently left in.

Version 2.2.15-50400 (QuestGuru)
-------------
* Change logic around QuestLog_OnShow to use secure hook functions to resolve
  a taint issue introduced by patch 5.4.1 (Shame on you Blizzard).

Version 2.2.14-50400 (QuestGuru)
Version 1.5.15-50400 (QuestGuru_Tracker)
-------------
* TOC change for patch 5.4

Version 2.2.14-50300 (QuestGuru)
Version 1.5.15-50300 (QuestGuru_Tracker)
-------------
* TOC change for patch 5.3
* Fixed a problem in QGT_Achievements that caused the Tracker to fail (Tracker)
* Big thanks to CMTitan who provided code to handle Scenarios that came out with MoP (Tracker)

Version 2.2.13-50001 (QuestGuru)
-------------
* Added a new sound option to announce (Thank you Drizt)
* Added a snippet of code to fix a rare QuestLog layout problem.  Drizt ran into this again in MoP & kindly shared his fix for the issue.
* Fixed a few more places where party handling was changed in MoP/Patch 5.0.4.
* Changed the Debug message for the objectives not returning data to be sensitive to the debug setting.

Version 1.5.14-50001 (QuestGuru_Tracker)
-------------
* Fixed another place where party handling was changed in MoP/Patch 5.0.4.

Version 2.2.12-50001 (QuestGuru)
-------------
* Blizzard API GetQuestLogLeaderBoard is failing to return information for the identified objective & quest on some quests.
    I changed the code to look for no information return and simply bypass processing for that objective after dumping some info into the chatlog.
    I've added a slashcommand to invoke the routine at will:  "/qg testui1"
    For me, it's failing on "Shadow Wardens" and perhaps that's because the world tree marks are currency, not "items".
    If the quest is an event quest (get 150 marks) then the type of quest should be event and the numObjectives should be zero.

Version 2.2.11-50001 (QuestGuru)
-------------
* Error being reported by some @ line 410 of QuestGuru.lua some diagnostic code when text == nil

Version 2.2.10-50001 (QuestGuru)
-------------
* Removed some leftover diagnostic messages

Version 1.5.13-50001 (QuestGuru_Tracker)
-------------
* Fixed a problem with the Achievement Tracking

Version 2.2.9-50001  (QuestGuru)
Version 1.5.12-50001 (QuestGuru_Tracker)
-------------
* Both - Updated several items for compatability with Mists of Panderia (Patch 5.0.x)

Version 2.2.7-40300  (QuestGuru)
Version 1.5.10-40300 (QuestGuru_Tracker)
-------------
* Latest revision of the Russian localization now incorporated.  Thank you again StingerSoft!
* Removed some unused code. Frame "QG_QuestLogTitleMenu"
* Fixed the SetBindings problem that would cause all bindings to occassionally get lost.

Version 2.2.6-40300 (QuestGuru)
Version 1.5.9-40300 (QuestGuru_Tracker)
-------------

* Incorporated a brand new localization for Chinese(zhCN).  Credit to Honooon with many thanks.
* Incorporated an updated localization for Russian(ruRU).  Credit to StingerSoft with many thanks also.
* Updated all of the localizations (even the new ones) to synchronize variable names
*   I based the updates upon the default (American) localization file.
*   I removed variables that were no longer in the base localization file (most moved to the QuestGuru_Tracer localization)
*     and added missing variables (in American)
* We now have localizations for German, French, Russian, and Chinese (zhCN & zhTW).
* I would really appreciate it if speakers of those languages sent me updates to them.  
*   There are some new variables in the localizations that need translation!

Version 2.2.5-40300
-------------
* The History button call to QuestCompletist has been fixed.

Version 2.2.4a-40300
-------------
* Refixed an issue in QuestGuru_Tracker\QGT_Quests.lua where SaveBindings sometimes received an invalid value because GetCurrentBindingSet() would return other than nil, 1, or 2.

Version 2.2.4-40300
-------------
* Fixed the TOC for 4.3 cata
* MrObrien has asked that somebody pickup and work on the QuestGuru so I will try and do some updates as I can't play without this mod.
  Addon home is www.wowinterface.com and you can PM me there if you like.  Gregity is the name.
  I will be making small changes to get used to the codebase before I try anything like a major update.
* Fixed an issue in QuestGuru_Tracker/QGT_Quests.lua where SaveBindings sometimes received an invalid value because GetCurrentBindingSet() would return nil
* No other new information has been added (yet).

    I am sorely missing your tracker and having to make do with Sorha for now until yours is ready.  Please bring it back soon!!!

  • #48

    OMG, please bring back your quest tracker.   That wod blizzard one is horrible in so many ways.

  • #47

    Please..  I'm dying for QuestGuru~!!!!!!!!

  • #44

    Does this addon show you where all the quests are in the game so you dont have to run around wherewhere trying to find them all?

  • #46

    As Vimes recommends, Loremaster is great if you're specifically looking for the quests that qualify for the "Loremaster" achievements, but since it ignores all others, I'll make another suggestion  - "Wholly" and "Grail".

    "Wholly" is currently, the only comprehensive list of quests and where to find them that is currently up to date (former mods that worked like this were QuestHubber, Quest Completist etc.. but these aren't WoD ready).   The "Wholly" frontend is powered by "Grail" the actual quest database (which is also powers Loremaster.) so you'll need to install "Grail" right here from Curse as well.  Wholly generates a separate, comprehensive quest log that is very customizable; it can display quests available to you, those not yet available that need a pre-requisite,  even show those you have done, those considered low level, dailies, dungeons and much more.   Mousing over a quest name will give information on where it comes from, like NPCs, coordinates etc..    Wholly also appends different colored "!"s to your map where you can find quests. This is also customizable, so if you don't want to see dailies, low level quests, or those not yet available to you, you don' t have to.  

    Wholly can be a little  daunting because of the scope of information, but it can also be very useful.

    Wholly and Grail can be both found here on Curse.    Enjoy!

    Note:  QuestGuru works well with Wholly/Grail by the way, and I suggest keeping it around for its excellent questlog.  It used to have the best quest tracker ever, and the author Lazare is working hard to rewrite it for Warlords of Draenor.

    No, it does not. Try Loremaster for that. But to be honest, you quests you do lead you to the next quests so you would have to be blind to end up not being able to find any.

    Re: QuestGuru Tracker

    I really miss it. Please........

  • #42

    Is it me? I'm not able to minimalize the quests anymore.  I have several quests spread over different lands and I would like to minimalize the ones I'm not doing atm but that doesn't seem possibile.  Also, the text in the questlog seems to be white and very hard to read, not sure if that's another addon causing this.

    Miss the quest tracker big time!

  • #39

    Fingers crossed for the quest tracker back up and runing! \o/

  • #38

    Oh my god. Thank you Lazare! I started to really dislike the new map+quests UI after using it for some time and now I've finally found an addon to bring the old separate quest log back.

  • #37

    There is no replacement! I will donate to have this addon back to it's true form! :-)

  • #35

    As a temporary replacement for getting the quest progression sounds back, I've been using Yoco's QuestSounds. Hate the default "Wacky" setting though, and have found the "Gong" set slightly more palatable ( /qsnd set gong ).

    Many thanks for your work on this addon, Lazare. I’ve really missed it when it’s gone on ‘hiatus.’ One of my 4 or 5 Must Have’s.

  • #32

    Thanks for this addon! Are you trying to get the tracker to work or is gone forever?
