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

    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!

    Hi.

    I just installed this yesterday and I like it very much except it has one flaw, imo.

    Can you fix this? See screenshot provided please. This happens when I tell QuestPointer to automatically create a TomTom waypoint.

    EDIT: I forgot to say that the TomTom spam just keeps going and going, it doesn't stop. At first I thought it was just updating as I moved about but even just standing still it just spams away.

    i Adirelle, do I have to paste verything into the QuestPointer.lua-File?

    Thx.

    Here is a simple patch to fix the POI numbering, so QuestPointer uses the same number as the world map and the quest tracker; even when showing only tracked quests: http://paste.wowace.com/1725

    Also, pretty unrelated but I would like an option to ignore completed quests.
