Addon review – EveryQuest

26 03 2010

Today we look at one of the most insanely useful addons for completing The Loremaster achievement – EveryQuest.

This achievement requires you to complete hundreds of quests across Azeroth, Outland, and Northrend. If you’ve been playing your character for a very long time, chances are you’ve completed many of the low-level quests in the game. No doubt you’ve also skipped quests here and there. Loremaster is very unforgiving, requiring you to complete nearly every single quest per zone to achieve it. That’s where EveryQuest comes into play.

You can see in this screenshot how it keeps track of your quests. Items in white are ones you have not yet completed. Items in green are ones you have completed.

However, the really powerful feature of EveryQuest is how it gathers your quest data. In Patch 3.3 Blizzard added the ability for addons to query the server to determine which quests a character had completed. This is where EveryQuest is most powerful. You can install it today, have it query the server, and it will present to you a list of quests that you’ve completed since day 1 of play.

I’m currently grinding my way through Loremaster for the second time. Before I discovered this addon, I would spend hours pouring through Wowhead trying to find an elusive quest I had missed. It was there that I saw a lone post about this addon. I installed it immediately, and had Loremaster completed on my first character within a day.

So what are you waiting for? Go download EveryQuest, and happy questing!
