What it is…

A Simple Quest Counter (SQC) for Blizzard’s default Map & Quests Log. Neither shiny, nor heavy!

If you enjoy using Blizzard’s default user interface, and you miss the good ol’ counter of quests, then you should consider this minimal add-on. SQC takes normal quests, daily quests and account-wide quests into account. The counter indication appears on the windowed setting of “Map & Quest Log”.

Note: SQC does not count quest-like tasks such as open world available quests (i.e. Broken Isles’ World Quests or Draenor’s Bonus Objectives) or story progress tasks, like in Suramar.
Also note: Blizzard does not strictly define which quests count against the global quest limit. So this add-on is based heavily on the “trial-and-error” approach.


v.9.0-7: Don’t count Shadowlands Covenant Calling quests against the counter.

v.9.0-6: Count Shadowlands campaign quests against the counter.
v.9.0-5: Minor fixes. Update for UI 9.0.2.

  • v.9.0-4: Various performance fixes. Code redesigned to better allow for custom settings at a future update.
  • v.9.0-3: Fixed the issue with “Party Sync” panel
  • v.9.0-2: Fixed the broken ‘/sqc’ command. In addition, I have added the quest counter in the objective tracker. Your feedback about this feature is more than welcome!
  • v.9.0-1: The new quest counter should appear below the quest log in its own frame. The color code for the saturation of the quests is now green->yellow->red. In addition, a new “/sqc” command is available and its a basis for further functionalities in the future.
  • v. 9.0-1.beta: I am releasing this pre-work until I finish decorating the quest counter label. 🙂 An undecorated label appears under the quest log and the usual category counters are in-place.
  • v. 8.0-4: Fixed serious issue with uncategorized ‘War Campaign’ quests.
  • v. 8.0-3: Fixed various issues about category counters. Refactored code to be more flexible for further fixes and enhancements.
  • v. 8.0-2: Added detailed counters per quest category. Removed completely any click interaction. Fixed various issues.
  • v. 8.0-1.alpha: Early release for BfA pre-patch.
  • v. 7.1-4: Added mouse interaction: left-click toggles the size of the map and right-click shows more quest count details on tooltip. Also, changed the color indication to a three-color version (white/yellow/red).
  • v. 7.1-3: Added support for color indication; the counter turns gradually from white to orange(-ish), proportionally to the amount of the quests.
  • v. 7.1-2: It is the actual first version of this addon.

Verified to work with:

  • Mapster
  • TomTom

SL Prepatch News

I am currently re-working this addon almost from scratch, mostly due to changes Blizzard introduced. This time the counter should not mess with Blizzard’s default UI elements. Instead, it will appear as an extra information box. A new command “/sqc” will also be available.

Note: The quest counter is currently visually undecorated. I am working on it. The next release should look and feel a lot better!

BfA Release News

SQC had a serious issue that caused the add-on to fail due to uncategorized ‘War Campaign’ quests. It is fixed. I will have my attention for any other kind of inconvenience. I suggest you download ver. 8.0-4 (or higher) of this add-on.
