Quest Item Bar

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.

    I'm author of New Openables. Because I'm using this addon for very long time I would like to see great functionality carry on. Quest Item Bar has great synergy with my addon I have plans to implement core functionality from QIB to extend my add-on.

    I wish you all have great time in RL.

    Thank you for updating!
    It was one of the last missing major addons I use.

    Smile! You are on the internet!

    Sorry not playing and probably never will again. If anyone want full control of the project or clone it just do it :-)

    Hmmm, whats your problems? In my environment it works with 4.3 without problems.

    Any chance you will be updating this for 4.3? I miss having it, and the alternative is less than stellar, IMHO.

    There's always an About in built-in add-on option panel. Could u please remove it or merge it into QIB options?

    ButtonFacade(r340) skin is not applied.

    if skin is applied, show skin.

    But if re-connection, skin is not applied.

    fix please.

    i've been looking lof this type of addon. I have autobar, but it shows all items usable or not. I do have a taint error and I'll open up a bug track.
