About QuestHelperLite

QuestHelperLite is an unofficial branch of QuestHelper aimed at providing the core subset of features in a slimmed down lighter version. Although some of the code and art assets of QuestHelper have been utilized, QuestHelperLite has been rewritten from the ground up and is in no other way affiliated with QuestHelper and those who have worked on it in the past.

The main deviation from QuestHelper comes from not utilizing a custom database to store quest objectives and locations. Instead QuestHelperLite gets all of it's info from the game itself. This has the advantage of providing a more compact addon without the need to update once new quests are available in game. If WoW knows about it, so does QuestHelperLite. Although this provides for a much lighter and compact addon, it is not without faults and some features of the old QuestHelper are not currently possible.

The core subset of features included in QuestHelperLite are as follows:

  • Quest Pathing - Calculates an optimal route for you to follow while questing
  • Tracking Arrow - A configurable arrow guides you to your next objective
  • World Map Icons - Quest objectives are viewable outside of your current zone
  • Ant Trails - Ant trails show the best calculated optimal route
  • Context Menus - Context menus are displayed when you right-click objectives
  • Ignorable Objectives - Ignore unwanted objectives

Donate QuestHelperLite will stay updated with donors like you!

  • #236

    use - it will fix the quest item taint.

  • #233

    I guess I'm a lucky one...I've not had any issues at pop error messages.....nothing....hmmmm

    Going to keep my fingers crossed now that I've mentioned

  • #235

    Update......seems like now I'm having to relog when I 1st log into game.....when I 1st log in & I'm in my Garrison there's alot of lag so I have to relog & what ever the problem corrects itself. strange.

  • #232

    I am having UI errors spam in the garrison for the day according to bugsag, they are all Questhelperlite errors. I can fix the issue by simply reloading which will stop the errors until I logout, however, it is still a little annoying to reload as soon as I log in everyday. Would you have a fix for this?

    I have also got issue using the quest objects directly from the tracking menu. A popup would should and ask me to ignore it or disable the addon.

    I'm getting a few errors, mainly when I'm in the garrison. I hope this is still being worked on? I donated a few $'s the other day, it's not much but I hope it helps.

  • #229

    Humm, Quest Helper Lite seems to give an error with the special items:


    2x [ADDON_ACTION_FORBIDDEN] AddOn 'QuestHelperLite' tried to call the protected function 'UseQuestLogSpecialItem()'.
    !BugGrabber\BugGrabber.lua:586: in function <!BugGrabber\BugGrabber.lua:586>
    [C]: in function `UseQuestLogSpecialItem'

  • #227

    Since alpha versions don't apparantly show up on this page, you can download it here:

  • #228

    Alpha is working just fine......Thank you!

  • #230

    Just thought I'd give you an update here WakeZero....the Alpha version  has been totally working great without a hitch, hickup or anything....again I thank you for's been such a great help !  I guess if you want to you could change the date where it says "Updated" it still shows 29 October 2013. And change the "Supports" to the now new version. So people will know that it's been updated.

    Astrolabe.lua and QHLQuest are not associated with Questhelperlite.

  • #226

    Astrolabe is an embedded library, and QHLQuests is part of QuestHelperLite. What do you mean they are not associated?

  • #223

    Alpha version should be up shortly. Note that the alpha version only contains minimum changes to make it work with the current patch. I will eventually need to rewrite major sections of the addon, and this is a low priority for me since I've been laid off from a project I really loved working on, so I need to find a new source of income now.

    On that note, donations are always appreciated for the time I spend doing this. It takes a lot of my time, and I see lots of people asking for an update and that they really love the addon. Fact: every time I get a donation I make a point to release an update, even if it's small. It's been awhile since an update...

  • #224

    Thanks for the info update....good to hear.

    Sorry to hear about your layoff ......if I could....I would donate to the cause....but I'm on disability and on a VERY  tight budget. 

    Thanks again for the info update.

  • #222 need to read......this addon does not's out of date. The last update was Oct. 29th, 2013 for 5.4.0. We are now on DOES NOT work due to this you asking why you can't get something to work for it...this is the reason.

    So please read the previous posts before you ask about why something isn't working right ect....
