About HandyNotes_TimelessIsleChests

Shows the chests on Timeless Isle that have yet to be looted by that particular character.

REQUIRES HandyNotes to be installed.

You can file tickets for bugs here:

I would rather have not done this but since there is definitely an issue with IsQuestFlaggedCompleted(), I've added a slight workaround for it. In version 1.09, which will be ready whenever curse gets around to packaging it, I've added an option to Save to the saved variables file. The option will need to be enabled and, most importantly, one of your logins must have IsQuestFlaggedCompleted() returning useful information. If you've enabled the option and the chests that you are sure you have looted are still showing then try logging out and back in or switching to and alt and then switching back. Once the data has been recorded in the saved variables file, the addon will rely upon that instead of that buggy function. For right now this option will not affect the weekly chests.

The changes in 1.06+ should stop the minimap icons from flickering with unnecessary updates. I've noticed that sometimes while logging in for the first time after you start up the wow client that IsQuestFlaggedCompleted() always seems to return nil. When that happens the chests do not hide and will always remain visible. Right now the only way I've been able to fix it was to log out to the character selection screen and then log back in.

If the map icons do not disappear when you loot them then, I recommend logging back out to the character selection screen and then logging back it.

Credit goes to Voxxel for the information I used on his comment at

Chests should hide as you loot them on the map. This can be changed by hitting escape and going to Interface->Addons->Handynotes and expanding the plugins and selecting TimelessIsleChests and toggling the show all chests option. This is what it should look like.

Added chests related to the achievements, and Some chests have two markers, one to indicate where to start at and another at the actual chest location.

Carbonite Users

I've made one that works with the latest beta of Carbonite. You can get it here, Carbonite_TimelessIsleChests. This is only for Carbonite users who can't use the handynotes version. It has the same issues as this addon with IsQuestFlaggedCompleted() and the chests will not disappear off the map as you get them but will instead not show up on subsequent logins.

    will you be considering making a handy note app that makes your handynote compatiable with carbonite. since the orginal peron stop playing a long time ago.

  • #21

    Don't even bother with this latest update.  Unless, of course you want all the chests you looted to reappear.


    /delete this app

  • #24

    Enabling Saved Variables and login out and back in did fix my chests reappearing..

    Before bashing the writer try to figure out the problem.. Heck he even posted what the issue is and it is not a fault of his..


    Love the Addon Thank you..

  • #22

    The latest update has nothing to do with the issue your seeing.  This addon heavily relies on the blizzard api IsQuestFlaggedCompleted() which seems to be fairly buggy itself.  I have added an option to for the addon the save the chests in it's own file.  Though if it bugs you uninstalling would be the best option, especially if you have gotten all the chests.

  • #19

    I too am having the same issue with the chests still showing up on the map even though I know I looted the chests. I tried the whole logging in and out and completely exiting out of the game as well as to an alt, but it didn't work. Any other suggestions as to how I can fix this issue?


  • #20

    Not too sure right now, doing those usually fixes it for me.  In 1.09 I did add an option to Save to SavedVariables, I would recommend enabling that.  Also, make sure that Show All Chests is unchecked.

  • #17

    Hello i have having the same problem where it shows all the chests regardless of if i looted or not.

    When i first got on the chars and looted the chests the ones i looted would go away. But logins after that show all the chests.

  • #18

    Try logging out to the character selection screen and logging back in or switching to an alt and then back to the original one.  At the moment the issue seems to be with the API itself and not the addon.

  • #15

    Will every chest reappear on the map if i remove cache folder? i have 15 alts that i wanna do this one, but im scared i will lose track of what chests i have left to open if something happens to my cache, i often remove that folder without thinking.

    if it does, is there anyway to do a scan of what chests you have left, with a macro or something?

  • #16

    This addon doesn't keep track of which chests you've opened.  Basically every chest is tied to a quest and when you open the chest that quest is marked as completed.  That information is stored on the realms and this addon just checks that whenever it needs.  As far as I'm aware deleting the cache and even the save variables for this particular addon should have no effect on any chests already marked completed.

  • #13

    Why after installed the addon there is nothing in my interface? Or are there any commands to show the addon?


  • #14

    On the character selection screen in the lower left corner should be an addons button, clicking on it should show HandyNotes_TimelessIsleChests and HandyNotes, you need them both enabled.  If the addon button is not there then I recommend googling how to install addons.  If you see this addon but not handynotes, you will have to search curse and download that aswell.  If the addon is enabled then you should see little icons on the map and minimap.

  • #9

    >I will have an option for it added in the next day or so though.

    Addon ALWAYS shows all chests (regardless of option setting) in 1.05 version.

    Please fix.

  • #12

    Confirmed.  This bug exists after today's updates.  My chests had all disappeared from map after I looted them.  After intalling update, they all appear on map again.

  • #10

    I'm unable to replicate this issue.  Have you looted the chests that are still showing?  The only way for a chest to be hidden is to open it on the character your logged in on.  The 'Always Show' option will force already looted chests to be shown but it doesn't hide any that haven't been looted.
