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

    Yes, the original QuestHelper would work with others in your group, routing you through everyone's objectives.  To my knowledge, QHLite has not included this, though it's one feature that I believe might actually be possible.

    On Screen Quest Objectives Freaking Out

    The on screen display of current objectives starts freaking out and showing different lists of objectives, flashing back and forth from one to another.  This only happens after hitting the M key to look at the map for your next objectives destination and then closing the Map window.  I relogged several times to make it stop flashing thru the objectives on my screen, but after several times I finally disabled the addon.

    Auto Tracking & Ant Trail Issues :-(

    When I had 'auto sort' turned on in this, I couldn't un-track any quests. It kept popping quests on for the continent I was in (Pandaria). And also, even after I un-checked that (which allowed me to remove quests from the tracker list) - the ant trail was still showing for all quests in Pandaria. 

    Kinda bummed - not sure if I'm doing something wrong. But I do really like the look of this addon and what it's capable of!

    Oh, and do you know if this is compatible with UI replacements like ElvUI at all? (I was using the original Blizz interface when trying this out, just an fyi)

    Received an error entering a Scenario.  This was an issue previously, though I think it took a different form.

    Hello, I recently updated to the latest version, but I am getting tons of errors and so I have to disable it so that I can play WoW. The error window pops up and stays there going through each line of code. I have uninstalled and reinstalled and nothing. :(  please help!

  • #172

    Haven't been having any problems. Can you post the error messages please?

  • #170

    Can I possibly use this addon to just disable the questarrow Blizzard throws at me? Without any addons, if I select to show any quests objects in the map, and then deselect them, the arrow still stays untill next gameexit. While the idea of quest helping is a valid one, I don't want to be stuck with it.

    You have no idea how excited I am that you have updated this add-on, there are none like it that I could find as a replacement in the downtime!

    I am so thankful for all of your work with QHL, thank you for making my WoW life so much easier!

  • #164

    Fix incoming for 5.3. Blizzard decided to change variable names. Yay =D

  • #162

    So is it safe to say this addon is dead? Last update was September 2012.


  • #165

    Nope, just didn't need to be updated.

  • #161

    Ya, looks like the patch broke it
