  2. This is a very late reply yet.. might be useful for those asking the same question:


    FastQuest Classic is an addon to enhance quest log displaying, quest tracking, and notification. This is an alternative to heavy duty add-ons like MonkeyQuest, Quest-I-On, etc.

    Or even better, something that announce nothing, but if you alt-click (or control-click, or whatever) on your quest, then it tell the party (or /s or /w your target) the current status of your quest.

    You can install Extended Quest Log - https://github.com/laytya/EQL3

    And then, open quest log, and while the chat is open (Enter), push Ctrl + Left Click on the quest name. It will write your quest progress


  3. Hello Shagu, you made some great addons, thanks for them!

    pfQuest is really a fantastic addon!

    I would like make a feature request:

    Can you please add an option to pfQuest to show all rare mobs on the maps?

    I noticed it contains the rare mobs in the database.


    Also I would like to ask you to add the following features:

    - Show the XP you will get when completing the quest (at least the XP gain for the plaers having their level equal with the quest level)

    - Show if the quest is shareable or not, so the player knows if he/she can go to take the quest alone (and share it later to the group members) or everyone in group has to come to get the quest. Would help a lot the group management


    Thank you!

  4. Hello,

    For TBC I've found the Chatter addon that changes the background color of the chatbox, from transparent to black

    It hurts my eyes really badly to read chat sometimes, as the color of the text chat is light, and the background is most of the time light (except in Duskwood and other few places)

    It should be very easy to do it but I have no idea how to make an addon for a simple task like that.

    Does anyone know any Vanilla WoW addon that can change the background color of the chat box?

    Thank you

    I just cant imagine a server issue that has a disconnect on load. Normally a disconnect on load is an addon, or addon setting or an old WDB that hasn't been cleared in a long time. Delete your WDB and move your WTF out of the WoW folder. Load the game and log in, but at character selection unload all if your addons and see what happens. Then start loading the addons back in 1 by 1 until you find which one causes it.

    I did that. It doesn't work. I still get lots of disconnects. The situation is unbearable anymore. Sorry.

  6. The server issue is real. Since a week ago, I play on another server and I never have this problem.

    On Elysium, too many times, you get disconnected right after entering the world, which is extremely annoying.

    I play on other servers with the same WoW clients (one for the regular account and the other one for the bank alt account), with the same addons. When playing on Elysium, I deleted the WDB and WTF folders and it still acts the same. It also disconnects when not using any addon.

    I know that simply maintaining a server implies a lot of hard work. Elysium is a well maintained server. But this disconnect issue make it pretty much unplayable for people like me.

    You wait a lot for the loading screen, and when the blue loading bar is at the end, you wait and wait and wait and then you get disconnected.

    I will come back to play on this server in the future. I really hope that meanwhile you will solve this issue.

    Best wishes!

  7. There was a server restart some 10 minutes after my message and after the restart I asked the people in the world chat, they had the same problem too. I hope you keep a log of the world chat, you can check what I said by taking a look at it (search for "disconnect").

    I don't know why they didn't reported it but they had this problem too.

    Today I played less but it looks like the server is in much better shape.

    I will delete my WDB and WTF folders right now.

    The key bindings are on the main menu in the client, but you probably know that 🙂

    Yes, thanks, I knew that, that's where I got the sample "bindings-cache.wtf" file. But it's in a cryptic form, it contains lines like this:


    which are unintelligible for the user.


    the files I presented above contain lines like this

    Toggle Honor Pane        "H"                Not Bound            TOGGLECHARACTER4


  9. When the WoW Classic will be launched, do you expect the players to leave in order to play retail WoW Classic?

    I think the effect will be the opposite: the launch of WoW Classic will attract a lot of attention and interest from the players, too many of them still don't know what Vanilla WoW is, so they will try to experience a private server too.

    I suggest the admins to prepare one or two more realms, just in case. Without investing too much energy in it, of course. Because nobody knows the effects of the WoW Classic launch on the private servers

  10. I was looking for a list of the default HotKeys in WoW and I could not find any.

    So I compiled such a list, for Vanilla WoW (version 1.12.1)

    - https://frostshock.github.io/wabc/#hotkeys.html

    - https://frostshock.github.io/wabc/hotkeys.html

    - https://frostshock.github.io/wabc/documents/vanilla-wow-key-bindings.xls


    .TXT Files:

    - The default Key Bindings in Vanilla WoW   -   https://frostshock.github.io/wabc/documents/vanilla-wow-key-bindings.txt

    - The version without the Blizzard ID column   -   https://frostshock.github.io/wabc/documents/vanilla-wow-key-bindings-noblizzid.txt

    - This is the two column version   -   https://frostshock.github.io/wabc/documents/vanilla-wow-key-bindings-2column.txt

    - The version that is sorted by hotkey   -   https://frostshock.github.io/wabc/documents/vanilla-wow-key-bindings-sorted.txt

    - Sorted by hotkey and without the Blizzard ID column (probably most useful for most of the people)   -   https://frostshock.github.io/wabc/documents/vanilla-wow-key-bindings-sorted-noblizzid.txt


    Also, the default bindings-cache.wtf file:
    - https://frostshock.github.io/wabc/samples/bindings-cache.wtf

    I'm quite sure I'm not the only one looking for a searchable list of WoW keyboard shortcuts so I hope this helps


  11. Thanks,

    I've filled this bug report a few days ago and it was wrongly closed (by Ziggy-QA ). How can I tell the developers to check it again?

    2019-01-29  -  Meeting stones don't work   -   https://github.com/elysium-project/classic-bug-tracker/issues/1060

    I was not asking to implement summoning.

    But I was asking to make them work, like it worked on Blizzard's Vanilla WoW in 2006. They also work on other Vanilla Servers:

    The meeting stones allow you to click on them. Also, when you hover the mouse above them, they tell you the dungeon name and the dungeon level

    When you click on the meeting stone, it will put you on a queue.

    When there are other players doing the same, it will automatically put you in a group with those players.

    That's all

    Anyone can check the above statements, simply by logging into any other Blizzlike server

    No summoning. I wasn't asking for summoning

    How can I re-open the bug report?
