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

    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>

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

  • #225

    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....


  • #221

    Why does the arrow dont pop up i have it on in addons but not on my map how do i fix this?

  • #220

    My map locks up and will not let me change views to "World".


  • #217

    Any news on if this is being updated?  I sure hope so and I bet a ton of others do too.  since I know nothing about programing...from my point of view I'm sure it's a pain in the bum to fix it and make it work. here's keeping my fingers crossed and hoping......


  • #219

    Gosh, I hope this gets updated soon.  Even if it doesn't have an arrow, it'd be nice if it would resort the quest log to something managable.  This blunder of an in-game quest tracker is trash and is pretty much ruining all of the hype I had for WoD.  :(

  • #214

    As usual, Blizzard's approach to making the map and quest oppaerate "like" QuesthelperLite is a half backed, halfassed attempt at best. It doesn't even show objectives when you zoom all the way out in one contenant (i.e. Eastern Kingsoms map, Pandaria map). You have to click on each ZONE to see where your quests are, or go to that zone map from your quest list.

    We need QuesthelperLite back so we don't have to cope with Buzzard's halfassed UI !!!

  • #213

    for me it don't work, it also throw's errors.  wondering iff u would be able to update it and fix it to this current version of the patch?  thanx 

  • #210

    Hey guys, I haven't been playing lately so I haven't updated. Does it work if you click the checkbox to load out of date addons? Or does it throw errors now?
