Moncai's Quest Tracker Basic

Moncai Quest Tracker

I have been developing my modified quest tracker over the past few years. Each time Blizzard updated it's tracker, I updated mine with it. Coded from the ground up again for patch 3.3 and adapted to 4.0.1, I'm releasing it here so others may benefit.

New release

  • Beta 4.0.1 is live and fixes issues with some quests and adds the option to show quest ID's
  • Beta 4.0.0 is live and should fix (hopefully all) Cataclysm incompatibilities.
  • Beta 3.3.3.2 (r36) is live. This fixes Questguru compatibility, collapsed tracker width and re-introduces the buddy system (at a basic level).

Current features

  • New: Tracker is optionally movable and you may choose to display Item buttons on the left side, see config (/mqt) under "Placement"
  • Tracker shows levels and colors but still stays true to the original by Blizzard
  • Includes all the questing goodies Blizzard has put into the 3.3.3 update
  • If you quest with someone else who has this tracker, you can track their progress
  • Works with QuestHelper 1.3.x, reflecting the order in which to do the quests (version 1.3.10 tested)
  • Works with Tourguide style addons by using built-in proximity sorting
  • Shift-click a header in the Questlog to toggle the watches for all quests under that header
  • Access the configuration screen by typing /mqt in the chat window or via "Game Menu"-"Interface"-"Addons"
  • A few features I have missed

QuestHelper integration

For a successfull integration with QuestHelper, please mind the following things:

  • Please use version 1.3.7 or higher of QuestHelper
  • Make sure it's enabled in the configuration screen (type /mqt to access it)
  • Disable the built-in tracker of QuestHelper, either via it's configuration menu or via the slash command "/qh track" (without the quotes).

Since QuestHelper is no longer actively developed, you may also want to disable the integration and then Right-Click the WatchFrame header ("Objectives") and in the pop-up menu select "Proximity" under "Sort Quests". Tip: this also works well with Tourguide based addons

Upcoming features

For now I consider the tracker fairly feature-complete except for the buddy leveling-system which I hope to extend in the future. If you have ideas, feel free to create a ticket on wowace describing your wanted feature.

Beta, what does that mean?

Oh yes, there will be bugs! Since I am only one person it's impossible for me to test every setup or addon-combination. If you like, please give it a try, and help me make the addon better. Your feedback is kindly appreciated!

    Oh, and also - is it ok to change the fancy 'i' letter in your name to regular 'i'? Russian client does not support it and shows cyrillic garbage instead.

    I've done the russian translation recently, could you please repack the add-on with it so i can test if it actually follows the context.

    I'm glad you like the daily quest coloring :) Currently there is no objective progress coloring. If you really want this feature, please create a ticket describing what you have in mind and I'll see what I can do.

    Thanks for the update. Is there quest progress coloring? Noticed the blue coloring, which looks like the daily quest color - awesome.

    The new version is finally here! Fully 3.3.3 compatible. Included are two most wanted features: A movable frame and left sided item buttons.

    Are there options yet to put the quest icons on the left of the tracker instead of right?

    @JLBurnett04 @jexxlc if you use the ChinchillaMinimap addon, you can move the QuestObjectivesTracker frame freely. If you enjoy having a clean, lightweight minimap addon, I would suggest trying out ChinchillaMinimap. :)

    No, there isnt a way currently but make sure to check out the tickets... i posted one not long ago requesting this option and the author said he'd consider adding it if enough ppl wanted it so please add your vote to my feature request ticket =)

    Is there a way to move the quest tracker frame? Maybe I'm just completely over looking the obvious but I can't seem to figure out a way to move it around.
