Quest Watch Config

This project is abandoned and its default file will likely not work with the most recent version of World of Warcraft. Whether this project is out of date or its author has marked it as abandoned, this project is no longer maintained.


This addon creates a new, movable, fully customizable quest watch frame. The watch frame is the collection of objectives on the side of your screen.

You can currently customize the following:

  • Frame border (texture, size)
  • Frame background (texture or color, size, tiling, alpha, insets)
  • Fonts (titles, objectives, sizes, colors, justification, highlights, insets)
  • Mouse clicks
    • Open world map to objectives
    • Open quest log/achievements
    • Create quest/achievement link
    • Stop tracking quest/achievement
  • Style of objectives
    • Numbers first (default, same as watch frame)
    • Numbers last (how they appear in the quest log)
  • Color title or objectives by quest difficulty

In addition, players can create custom notes that appear in the new watch frame.
