CovetousCountess - Abah's Watch farming helper  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 5
by: Shinni [More]
This addon helps you to farm the new Abah's Watch motif.
The motif drops from "Large Laundered Shipments", which are a reward for the Thieves Guild tip board quests.
In the "The Covetous Countess" quest you have to obtain and deliver laundered items. This is a really easy task because the "Large Laundered Shipments" also contain laundered items.
If you keep the laundered items in your inventory, you can complete this quest over and over again really fast, because you only have to teleport between the countess to deliver the laundered items and the Thieves Guild refuge to complete and restart the quest.

This addon removes the possibility to accept the other quests on the Thieves Guild tip board. The interact button (E by default) will immediately quit the quest dialog, if the quest is not the Covetous Countess.
This means you'll only have to spam the E/Interact button until you receive this motif farming quest. See here.

Note: This addon uses the quest offer text to detect which quest is currently offered. As a result languages others than english, french or german are not supported (ie custom localizations of ESO).

I discovered the problem with my new necromancer. I went back with my oldest character and confirmed the addon didn't work.

Broken by the patch it seems then

Not tested yet, but have you already the first quest needed with the board before using the addon ? From memory the addon was working only if you did the first quest board before.

(If you already did, then ignore my comment)

Yup the starter quest has 3 "'s, but this tip is continuously shown until completion which then unlocks the usual random tips selection.

If you can allow it as well it will save having to disable the addon just to do this initial quest, since it only shows up once (the first time)
This is still true in Mar 2019. If you have installed the addon, but have NOT yet done A Cutpurse's Craft (where you have to pickpocket in Hew's Bane) then you will NOT be offered the starter/pre-quest. Just disable it, reload UI, and once that one is complete, then you are good to go re-enable, and reload UI.

Excellent addon

Saves me a ton of time.

Think you can make a modified version of this real quick for this event to filter through quests and only accept "Fish Boon Feast"?

Thanks again,
Eli

I'm honestly not sure. At first I thought it was because I installed the add-on while the game was running or because I was on the 64-bit client. So I just uninstalled it and re-installed it, logged in with the normal client, and tried again. But it's still not working.

The tip board has not changed - It still offers quests, but when I try to spam E as demonstrated, I just claim whatever quest is on the board, like what would normally happen without the add-on. And opening the world map does nothing.
It may be a bit late, but maybe helpful to those who come to this thread with the same problem. It's the addon Khajiit Speak which prevents CovetousCountess from working entirely. I had the same issue with my Khajiit character only, while my Nord had no trouble, so I deactivated the fluff addon, et voilá, it did its job as intended.

Hi! I found a problem with the encoding in the file CovetousCountess.lua. Before appending to the file Japanese or Russian text, the file must be encode in UTF-8. Remove Russian text, encode file in UTF-8, and then re-add Russian text.

PS: I apologize that I forgot to write about encoding in the previous post.

Not working

great idea but it doesn't- work at all on my system.

It actually makes it so I can't pick up the quest.

This addon works with localized strings. First question: Which language?

If it is not english, french or german, Shinni needs the caption of the tip board and the dialog text of the countess quest. (A unique part of it for identification.)
