The Questing Guide  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 0.16.1
by: Alianym [More]
Welcome to The Questing Guide (TQG)!

ESO's story content keeps expanding, and with each new Chapter comes a new tutorial and beginner experience. It doesn't always do the best job of introducing you to past content however, and that's where TQG comes in. Featuring an easy-to-use interface, simply set up a keybind in CONTROLS, and you're good to go. Press to open, press to close. It's that simple! (Or alternatively use the slash command /tqg to toggle the menu open/closed)

At the moment there are three primary tabs as you can see in the screenshots:
  1. Overview
  2. Classic Stories
  3. DLC and Chapter Stories
  4. Group Content (Dungeons, Trials, and Arenas)
Features
A list of quests compiled from both Zenimax's Zone Guide and LibUespQuestData, you'll find each major storyline in the game listed in chronological order, (defaulting to order of content release), where you can follow along or even check off your list you may have left uncompleted years ago.

Each major category, (Aldmeri Dominion, Fighters Guild, Daedric War, etc.), is preceded by a number indicating its overall place in the story. Within each major category is a subcategory where each zone or DLC is listed according to its place within the major category arc. For example;

(1) Aldermeri Dominion
(1.00) Khenarthi's Roost
(1.10) Auridon

Embedded in the GUI interface is a button that ties directly to the Zone Story function allowing you to instantly zoom to your current place in that zone. That means even if you've finished every major quest in the zone, you'll be directed to Points-of-Interest you have yet to complete, (maybe directly to side-quests in a future update), or other objectives left in the region.

Now works in German, French, and Russian clients. Quest Names and Zone Descriptions are translated, Completed Quest Descriptions and the Overview page are not, yet. Let me know if you'd like to help, even just with translating the Overview page.

Required Libraries:
LibUespQuestData

Future Ideas
– Add a button similar to the one for Zone Stories for accepting Dungeon Quests, where the requisite DLC has been purchased by the user.
– Add an "Easter Eggs" type of section for each major arc, detailing hidden stories or recurring characters.

Please feel free to leave feedback and/or suggestions in the comments. Alternatively, send a DM.
v0.16.1
  • Updated some edge-case code issues

v0.16
  • Updated for Stonethorn

v0.15.3
  • Added Kyne's Aegis Trial to the Group tab
    • a) Fixed a missing icon

v0.15.2a
  • Updated some translated text for better accuracy

v0.15.2
  • Updated Description for Zone (7.40) and changed from "Epilogue" to "Dragonhold", (and fr/de/ru equivalents)
  • Updated Screenshots on the AddOn Info. page

v0.15.1
  • Added missing (normal-difficulty) Maelstrom Arena quest to the Group tab
    • Dragonstar Arena (DSA) is not noted in the Craglorn section, as DSA has no quest.
  • Updated some code so Trials will display the zone to which their quests belong, when incomplete (will not say "Trial: <Zone Name>" at current, just "<Zone Name>")
  • Added some missing Russian names for NPCs in the tooltip text for Trial lead-in quests
  • Added Overview section for Group Content tab
  • Added Dungeon/Trial icons to the Zone Names, (not in the drop-down list, but in the box to the right with the Zone Description)
  • Bug Fix: de/fr/ru languages now have "Show Quest Start on Map" functionality in the Group tab
  • Bug Fix: Fixed mismatched link/button combinations on the Overview tab (For real this time)

v0.15
  • Added new tab! This new tab contains the Dungeons, Trials, and Arenas in each of the story categories in the pre-existing two tabs. (I'll probably add standalone DLC dungeon content in a later update.)
  • Bug Fix: Fixed mismatched link/button combinations on the Overview tab
Known Bug(s)
  • Darkshade Caverns is listed as "Darkshade Caverns I" for both I and II

v0.14.1
  • Completed Russian translations for quest names that were still in English (descriptions will remain in English at current)
  • Updated some tab icons with new ones available with the latest update
  • Bug Fix: The first Main Quest in Western Skyrim now displays properly in the UI for languages other than English

v0.14
  • Added support for the Greymoor Chapter
Notice:
  • Russian-language support is not yet fully implemented. The aim is to get it up to par with French and German versions of the AddOn in the next few days depending on availability.

v0.13.3
  • Bug fix: Craglorn quests should no longer count when they have not in fact, been completed.

v0.13.2
  • A few bug fixes
  • English-text version of TQG will now be the default to load in languages besides French and German. This means there should be no load errors in other-language clients. The intent is to add more complete Russian language support post-Greymoor launch
  • Japanese client version is currently unsupported, and a message with a brief explanation will appear if trying to open TQG in-game in the Japanese client. As always, feel free to reach out if you're able/willing to help with translations
  • New Functionality: Using the "Explore Zone" button while on a Prologue Quest will direct you to the current step of the in-progress quest

v0.13.1
  • A few bug fixes (mainly cross-language ones)
  • Added new feature: "Explore Zone" button will now direct you to Prologue Quests if you have yet to start them, for the zone in question
    • To-Do: Expand this feature to Epilogues

v0.12.1
  • Fixed a bug preventing AddOn compatibility with the German and French clients. (Will aim to support other languages post-Greymoor release)
  • Added support for German and French languages to maintain functionality cross-language (this means the overall AddOn size is now larger, but you shouldn't notice a performance degradation. Let me know if you do)
    • All text except for quest descriptions post-completion and Overview tab categories should be translated. Anyone that wants to help with translating more or fixing any errors let me know
  • Removed AddOn pre-compatibility with the Greymoor API update (100031) due to the fact that it will break once it updates to the new Chapter anyway (an update will be deployed on the day of the PC launch of the Chapter to bring it up to date – working on future-proofing this so an update on the day of a patch isn't required)
  • Added slash command "/tqg" to toggle the menu open/closed without a keybind
Known Bug(s)
  • "Welcome to Cyrodiil" and "City on the Brink" may not refer to the character's correct Alliance in the completed quest description

v0.11
  • Added Psijic Order and Balmora questlines to Daedric War major storyline

v0.10
  • Initial Release

Hi there!

I appreciate the feedback!
I'll add that it's probably not coming soon though, unfortunately. As much as I'd like the feature, it's not something for which I have the time right now, especially considering to my knowledge there are decent alternative AddOns for side-quests. It's definitely still on the table, but not something that's likely in the near future. I wish you good hunting, though!

Hey again!

I've just done a fair amount of questing myself, so I remembered it!

You make an interesting point, though. There might be others that could be worth adding. I specifically added Balmora because of the depth as you say, and it's relevance to future Major Stories. That said, there is a two-quest chain in Coldharbour that features guest appearances from three former zone antagonists, (one from each Alliance), that could be interesting to add, for example. I'll search my memory and maybe ask some others I know who are even more prolific questers than I and see what we can remember.
I stopped doing the normal quests as they're just all utterly boring copies of "Go there, collect X, kill Y, talk to A, done. Next area/POI".

Contrary to that the Balmora quest chain has a build-up, rivals main-zone-story quests in terms of length and has actually decent storytelling.
Those kinds of quests I will do gladly, as you noticed the effort that went into creating them - unlike all the other cookie-cutter boring ones.

A few improvements:

- Currently no textual or visual difference between dungeons and trials. Just use the ESO icons for dungeon and trial for every entry. Matter of preference where to put it, but I'd favor the icon behind the text, e.g. 1.19 Auridon <dungeon icon>

DLC-dungeons will also be present in the same tab, right?

The Overview-Tab needs a small explanation of the group tab similar to the quest tabs.


And don't worry about frequent updates: you're the dev creating something for free in your spare time.

Edit: Gold Coast - The Sweetroll Killer: is that quest even available anymore? I can't find the trigger notice anywhere.

Hey again! Thanks as always for the well-constructed feedback, I appreciate the time.

Version I / Version II:
  • Fair point. I played around with a few options for differentiating them, but for some reason it never occurred to me to just put it in the objectives space. Busy + Tired, I guess! I'll see about putting it in the next release or the one after that. Though it will show the specific Dungeon I/II to which it's tied if the objective is incomplete. Or it should at least.
Dungeons / Trials:
  • I like the idea of putting an icon next to the zone/region name. I'll look at that this weekend as well if I get time.
Updated Overview-Tab + DLC Dungeons:
  • This one was actually already on my To-Do list after I posted the latest update, but always good to mention anyway. You never know when you might spark an idea.
  • Yes, DLC dungeons will go in this tab, too.
Frequent Updates – Don't Worry:
  • Thanks. Also a good point.
Gold Coast – The Sweetroll Killer
  • So this is kind of an "odd-one-out" quest. I haven't actually done it myself, but I've seen/read that the quest requires you to have done not only the Main Story of the Gold Coast, but every other quest on the Gold Coast before it will appear, (except dailies). I meant to put a note about that somewhere in the guide itself, but apparently I haven't gotten around to it yet. Will see what I can do/where I can put a notice.

Updates

Hi to anyone that reads this!

Update for those that are interested.
I've been really busy and caught up in a bunch of things this past couple weeks, but I've still been working on the AddOn as and when I can. The next feature I'm doing is relating to dungeon and trial quests, which is well underway. I've got the groundwork laid and some of the details ready, but even so depending on how my upcoming week goes it may not get published until next Friday or next Sat/Sun. Might be sooner, but we'll see. Hope you can make good use of the feature, and as always I appreciate the support and comments/feedback.

Hello!

So, yes. It is certainly possible if I'm understanding what you're asking correctly.
I can either make a separate category for dungeons and trials and tag the quest with the zone to which it belongs, or just add the dungeon/trial quests to the end of the list of zone quests. So for example, at the end of Alik'r list of quests, I'd add the quest for Volenfell. (I'd just need to decide which option is easier to do/more user-friendly.)

I'd need to do some extra behind-the-scenes coding to get the map zoom-to-location working, or the "click this button to accept the quest", but certainly doable.

If that's what you're after, I'll add it to my To-Do list.
Yep, that's what I'm after.

An idea for the how:
Keeping everything as it is, but every zone with a dungeon/raid gets those as new entries below it, e.g. Glenumbra would have 2 indented menu entries for both Spindleclutch 1 and Spindleclutch 2, and everything else with quest tracking etc. stays the same.

That way you can see where a dungeon/raid belongs to and if you did the quest or not with a single glance.

The lists will get longer due to new entries, but it shouldn't be an issue, as right now the content headers already collapse/expand and thus hide the length of their entries.

Hi there!

So, I potentially could add side-quests in the future, but it's not on my immediate roadmap. I feel at the moment that other AddOns like Quest Log and Quest Map handle the listing and locating of side-quests well enough at the moment, but I won't rule it out.

If you're looking for something like an older-style quest journal, (as Myrthian suggested), I'd recommend looking into Harven's Quest Journal. I don't think its retroactive though, unfortunately. It would only track quests and times and conversations for quests going forward.

Are you searching for something like Quest Map https://www.esoui.com/downloads/info1022-QuestMap.html, or are you searching for some kind of quest log that enables you to re-read quests you have done?
