QuestPointer

Up close

QuestPointer puts the quest POI icons from the world map onto your minimap.

It'll integrate with TomTom's crazyarrow, if you have it installed. Click the broker plugin or type "/qp closest" to have the crazyarrow point to the current closest quest POI.

You can choose to:

  • Auto-track the closest POI in TomTom
  • Only show icons for quests you're watching
  • Make icons on the edge of the minimap become arrows to make it more obvious that they're far away
  • Change the icon scale

TODO:

  • Arrowed-icons should include the number/icon that the closer ones use

    Not sure if it's just me but I downloaded the Nov 26, 2015 updated version of this and typing /qp closest brings up the options panel instead of setting the tomtom wp. I will look at the code this evening and see if I can see the issue and post a fix for you here if I get it working properly.

    I have been always loving on this addon and I can't do quest without it. However after the update for 6.0.2 it seems that there's a problem with QuestPointer. The icons on the minimap sometimes doesn't match with the world map. It means that a quest may be number 5 on the quest list and world map but on the minimap the number is different. This problem will be worse if I have several quest at the same time. Will you keep update QuestPointer and fix out this problem. I am really looking forward to it.

    Could you please make the addon more easier to make localization, author?

    This is not working at all for me in 4.3. I'm seeing no icons on my minimap, no matter which options I have enabled. I'm having the issue both with all my other addons diabled and with all my other addons enabled.

    Edit: It seems like there are issues with this addon in certain parts of Twilight Highlands. I checked other characters that are questing in other zones, and the POI marks show up fine for those. But the Twilight Highlands quests seem more hit and miss. This may be beyond the control of the addon author.

    First I'd like to thank you for this addon, it's great. There is just one quirk with version 7.3 that is annoying. You have by default for QuestPointer to add the nearest POI to TomTom but when I uncheck the box in UI TomTom's arrow still comes up over my head when I begin a quest. Is there any way you can fix that from happening? Thanks again.

    I have tested some version of questpointer. QuestPointer-v6-1-g2c04fde is working fine with 4.3.0a except the same quest's coordinates are printed multiple time when I turned on tomtom's new coordinates added message, Anyway it is adding automaticaly new quest point.

    But After QuestPointer-v6-1-g2c04fde is not adding any new quest point. So I can use only manuly add new quest point with ctrl-right click on worldmap. I am using Korean client and tomtom is latest version.

    First of all, Thank for such a great addon. I have used questpointer and tomtom. My client is Korean. It was fine. Recently (I think after 4.03a or 4.0.3).QustPointer have not worked. I can't see any tomtom's news coordinate added message.

    Tomtom :1.0.5 Qustpointer : 7-3 !BlizzBugsSuck 4.0.3.2 (http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info17002-BlizzBugsSuck.html)

    Whenever I executed "/qp closest', It just opened qp's option panel ,instead of marking closest way point.

    I followed Adirelle's fix, and so far so goo. All my quest markers numbers now match between my world map and minimap.

    Kemayo, if you integrate those fixes and release it I'm sure many in the community would greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks for the awesome addon!
