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

    I've started getting a popup saying that there's an update available at random times (somtimes when first logging into a new character, other times just flying from one location to another, other times in combat).  Is it possible to disable the update check? I'd prefer for it to not check at all in any case - I regularly check addons with an addon manager, so an in-game check isn't necessary.


    To clarify for future reference - at the time of this writing, I don't see an update available.

    Do u compile the questing database or is it using a old one as such and does it do MoP quests??

  • #192

    There is no database, I pull all the information directly from the game.

    This means that updates are only required to fix bugs or add new features, which is generally determined through donations.

  • #189

    Good job on the addon! Its more subtle regarding ui changes than the original qh which makes it even better imo. Can we track issues and feature requests somewhere? Im new here.

  • #187

    I think I've encountered a bug. Showing and hiding quest tracking isn't working. Some quests do not track after I press the Track buttton. Another problem: if I track one quest, another quest hides. If I show that quest the other hides. This goes back and forth. I'm using QHL This problem can be duplicated with only the QHL addon active.

    This isn't a bug. When the "Autosort Quest Tracker" option is clicked, the quest tracker is automatically sorted for you, and the normal tracking button on the quest log has no effect.

    You can either turn this off, or adjust the filters in the options. I suggest  turning off "Filter By Zone", "Filter By Group" and "Filter By Level" if you want to see all your quests.

    Keep in mind this still won't show quests on a different planet, like Outland or Draenor if you're on Azeroth. It will only show quests in Outland if you are in Outland etc.

    Would it be hard to implement that as an enhancement?  I think it would be handy to be able to toggle tracking on and off manually for individual quests, but still have QHL sort the ones that are tracked.

  • #186
    Anyone else getting errors in scenarios? As in hundreds to the point where the game nearly crashes and offers to disable all addons :S
  • #185

    If you are getting UI errors when opening your map, it is because of a bug they introduced in the latest patch, and there is nothing I can do about it:

    You may try disabling any third party map addons, as I haven't had the problem when I run the default map.

  • #183

    Keep getting this error everytime I check my Map

  • #184

    Blizzard introduced a taint issue with the updates they made to the in-game store. It happens after using any interface panel (escape, then panel). 

    To keep it from happeneing to me, I 1. NEVER open the panels if I can help it, if I need to, be ready to /reload the ui as it fixes it. See more info here:
