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

    Is it possible to move and/or resize the quest tracker?

  • #202

    is it possible to factor in flight paths in the quest order or would that require a DB setup?

  • #201

    I'm having a similiar problem.I turned off all settings, put the filter by level way up, and disabled all addons. It will keep tracking it even when I tell WoW not to track it.


  • #200

    i just installed this, and there where a few minor thing that i find annoying,, most of them i figured out how to handle, (minimap size, generel chat location and stuff like that)
    but, my problem i just cant fix, is. the tracking quest system, it only tracks my #1 quest, even tho is 3 realms away, and it wont react when i click to fasttrack one of the others, and i cant (un-track) any quests, 

    also, at the actionbars, there is a minor problem with the ui-hud? (not sure what it is called) where the menu bar (with character and dungeon, talents ext. ext. ext) where it is hidden beneath the awesome looking  ui-hud?. also, i am currently a warlock using this addon, and the same problem is my "pet" bar, where my "meta" form button is. i know that this is all something you can use and enter with shortcuts, but im not good at remembering what button goes where,.
    and i know that if you move you mouse over to the "menu-bar" it will pop-up so you can see and click, but it would be nice if the  ui-hud? had enough room for that to already be visible??

    Hi, love the addon but there is one suggestion I would make if possible.  Have it send you to your unfinished quests before the ant trail takes you to turn in completed quests. 

    I was doing the AT dailies and it was directing me to go turn in my quest each time I finished one before sending me back out to carry on. This ofcourse would of been time in efficiant which is what an addon like this is designed to do is be time efficiant with quests. 

    Other than that, no problems and adds all the things Quest helper stopped and adds the parts that the Blizz Quest Tracker didn't add when they coppied Quest Helper into the game by default.


  • #199

    I was just thinking this same thing myself after trying the addon for the first time. It seems like it may need to place a higher prioritiy on completing unfinished quests first. Other than that, great work.

  • #197

    where can i get help with this addon


  • #196
    Only works on main character

    Does this add on only work with one character?  I have two and it only works on my original character created, not my newest one.  

  • #195

  • #194

    I keep my map on a minimized view when questing and I received this error :

  • #193

    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.
