About QuestItemBar

About QuestItemBar

Automatically shows a bar with buttons for the quest items you possess. It looks similar to a standard action bar. It is based on Ace3 and various embedded libraries provided by the Ace-community.


  • Behaves more or less like any standard action button.
  • ButtonFacade support.
  • LibDataBroker launcher.
  • Show all or only usable quest items.
  • Sort items in order usable - not usable - quest starter
  • Indicate if a item starts a new quest.
  • Display quest name and objective status in tooltip if information found.
  • Better handling of keybinds. If a quest item is no longer in possesion the keybind will be cleared instead of jumping to another item. If the player gets the previously keybound item again it will be bound again.
  • Should work on any WoW language client. Please report if it doesn't.


  • Open a configuration dialog using the commands "/qib config" or "/QuestItemBar config" or by clicking the LDB launcher. Or simply use the standard interface -> addons menu.
  • Configuration can be done using commands too. /qib <command>. Write /qib to show available commands.
  • Change the direction (growth) by right clicking on the anchor.

Looking for Authors

Because Nickenyfiken doesn't play and my timeslots are too small to implement new features, we are looking for Authors. I try to keep the project up to date and fixing bugs, but new features are not planned in near feature.

    Great Addon!  One request, could you offer an option to hide all items except new quests?  i.e. this item starts a quest.....  Thanks again!

  • #61

    I'm very new in the AddOn-Development Aerea. Your suggest is good and I think about it. My next steps are thougts about Show only QuestItems of the current area or  of quest which are you are following.

    Thank you so much for keeping this going!  <3

  • #55

    I installed the latest version (0.8.2), however my Addon List still shows this addon in red as 'Out of date'.

  • #56

    I hope I can update the Project this weekend.

    I updated LibQuestItem-1.0 it here:;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; The lib was definately broken; however, I'm surprised that the part of it that was broken was causing this addon not to work properly.

    After fixing that, and a couple of reloads, the addon seems to be working again.

  • #53

    For those unable to download Aelorean's file you can manually edit the LibQuestItem-1.0.lua found inside the Libs folder of the addon.

    I've linked the changes that Aelorean has made to the file.

  • #51

    there's no way for any of us to download that file and i even signed up too.

  • #50

    Now if only filepost were willing to cough it up.  I am NOT joining the site, and the "free" download does nothing.

  • #48

    I'm about to open it up and see if I can figure out how to fix it for, but if anyone figures it out, please post a comment!

    Great add on thanks

    This is a great add on thanks, I don't think I have stopped using it once since I got it.

    ButtonFacade / Masque fix?


    I was wondering if there is a work around for getting QIB to work with Masque since the change from ButtonFacade. It's not a huge deal but QIB really stands out since its the only thing that isn't in "sync" with the rest of the UI theme. Thannk you for this addon, been using it for ages.

  • #45

    Please update, this was awesome when it worked.  Now it won't work anymore.

  • #44
    Bug, ListIgnoredItems and ListAlwaysShowItems returns an error concatenating 'nil'.

    It is because GetItemInfo() does not return info immediately and waits for an item to be cached. Showing the list again will be okay since item should be cached by then. To duplicate the error, I clear my wow cache and the error will come back the next time I log in and try to list items. To help, you could either print a text message to show list again since not all items were shown, or use OnUpdate() to automatically wait and show the list only after it finds all items.
