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

    Just a minor bother, but QHL doesn't seem to be tracking any of my quests in Gilneas. :(

  • #150

    Make sure your level and zone filters are turned off. I ran into this problem with heirloom gear, because I out leveled the quests!

  • #148

    Is it possible to filter quests by watched/tracked?  I only want routing and arrows if I'm working on the quest currently.

  • #143

    How do I move the "Objectives". it shows over my mini-map.

  • #145

    That's Blizzard's Quest Log and is part of the default UI. You'll need a different addon to move it. Things like Chinchilla and Sexy Map I believe have options to move it. There's numerous others as well like Move Anything.

  • #146

    Thank you

    Found it in Chinchilla

  • #141

    Hello is there a way to lock the arrow?


  • #147

    You can lock the arrow by right clicking it and a menu will apear.

  • #140

    Planting an explosives barrel in the quest "Barrels of Fun" at Kun-Lai Summit leads to an error stating that the action is only available to the Blizzard UI.


  • #138

    I was using QHL because QH has been down and only gathering data for awhile. QHL was working great till about 2-3 days ago.  I multibox and it totally messes with jamba.  Yes i know it is QHL because I did the whole turn all addons off and restart them one at a time.  some of the things that were messing up i would have never suspected QHL, but when i turned QHL off jamba started working like a charm.  if you want more info on what what happening just leave a reply to this and ill tell you.

    Not seeing this on my characters. Try disabling other addons (especially ones like Mappy) and see if the problem still persists.
