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

    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.

    I second what Tatertott said this is a great addon to keep a tomtomish thing going but with hardly the mem requirements. Keep it up :D

    This is a VERY nice addition for anyone that is looking to get away from the heavy memory questing addons like Carbonite or QuestHelper. Pair this up with Tekkub's Quecho and you have a great combination. Thanks for the addon!

    I was just thinking about something like this earlier today. How nice it would be to get those up quest tracker icons up on the mini-map as well.

    Actually, in your TODO, if you changed the icons to arrows you'd lose the info. I kind of like seeing the numbers on the icon there on the side. Maybe fade them, or something, but leave the #s.

    Anyway, cool. Thanks.

    You, sir, are freaking awesome. I await the blobs and arrows with baited breath. Downloading this version now!
