Harven's Quest Journal  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.7
by: Harven [More]
This is my vision of the quest journal. I wanted it to look more classic, like TES3 Morrowind's quest journal. It has full functionality of the original ESO quest journal plus some additions. The additions include:
- display of times (start time, steps times, end time),
- quests history (Completed Quest),
- quests conversations (quest start/end dialogs),
- display of completed quests rewards,
- quest progression steps,
- possibility to change the journal appearance (skin, font, colors)
To open the journal type /journal command or go to the controls menu and set your desired key binding. The quest history contains only quest completed after this addon installation.

Quest Journal Navigation
Navigation tips are shown on the bottom strip. Here are the defaults:

Current Quests page
T - switch to the Completed Quests page,
LMB - click on a quest name to switch to details page,
RMB - click on a quest name to set it as focused.

Completed Quests page
T - switch to the Current Quests page,
LMB - switch to details page of selected quest,

Quest Details page
T - back to the Current/Completed Quest page,
E - previos page,
R - next page,
F - share quest (if the quest is not completed),
X - abandon quest (if the quest is not completed),
X - delete quest (if the quest is completed),
F1 - set as focused (if the quest is not completed),
M - show on map (if the quest is not completed),
LMB - click on the NPC name to switch to the Conversation History page.

Conversation History page
T - back to the Quest Details page,

If you like my work you can make me happy by sending some in-game gold/items to @theharven on EU server (but please, no lockpicks ), eventually you can help me pay my monthly subscription by donating some money.

Are there any plans at present to pull completed quests from the API for quests completed without the addon installed? It'd be really nice to see what my main character did before I added this, and you could just fill in the date and time with something cheeky like "long ago".

Random question: the start/end time of quests...is it the in-game time that shows on the mini-map or is it real time? If it's the latter, is there a way to change the time zone? I'm noticing that quests I start/end are about 12 hours ahead of my actual time.

I also agree with Alexandriae regarding the keybinding for to go back (and/or right/left click to flip pages).

Non-Default Key Binding

Hi, I'm not sure if this feature already exists (maybe I'm just blind xD), but I couldn't find a way to change key bindings for the journal. For me, the default key bound for "Set Focus" is already in use for something else (my quickslots are F1-F5). If you could implement a way for us to bind these functions to another key, I'd really appreciate it!

Also, I'd like to suggest the ability to right click when on the Quest Details page to go back to the Current/Completed Journal page (whichever you were on previously). I know the binding T functions as this, but this feels more natural - would rather have this replace T altogether.

Lastly (I know, a lot of suggestions lol), if you could figure out a way to add the Almanac, Lore Library, Achievs, and Leaderboards in the upper right corner - similar to the default Journal - that would be awesome! As it is now, I still have to use the default journal if I want to check these as there is no keybind for them.

Thanks in advance!

@Shadowshire, it's not like that. The addon has it's own "database" of completed/current quests. It only uses the api to make sure the list of current quests is up to date. If you select any in-progress or completed quest you will see the addon has more data than the game provides - because it's storing the data on the go.
If you have a suggestion, you would like to report a bug or just want to chat/ask some questions feel free to join our discord server https://discord.gg/QEWdHre.

Post Record of Quests Displayed By Harven's Quest Journal 2.6

On the face of it, each time that HQJ is loaded, it reads the Quest Journal archive and/or other records from the megaserver that pertain to the character which the player has selected to play. It also subsequently stores the data which it received in the HQJ Saved Variables file. (Presumably HQJ reads that file if the player reloads the UI.)

That is, HQJ does not create or maintain an independent record of each player-character's current quests and the quests which the character completes. I do not know of any other ESO add-on which does maintain an independent Quest Journal archive and/or records of Achievements.

That is unfortunate, and not what I have previously expected HQJ to do. It is unfortunate because the NA megaserver records have become corrupted for the Quests which my character Ace Adeya has completed, along with specific achievements associated with them.

Primarily, I can prove that corruption has occurred because Outfit Station Dyes were unlocked by completing specific quests, or for specific achievements such as "Hero of the Aldmeri Dominion". I don't know whether that will suffice to enable or to motivate ZOS to investigate and to rectify the corruption, thus to ameliorate its consequences.

In effect, all that HQJ does is display the data which it obtains from the megaserver, regardless of whether it is incomplete or otherwise corrupt. Which is not to say that it is not beneficial to use, just that it is not an independent record. <sigh>

That is a fair point. I like this addon & will continue to use it on new characters, but it would sure be great to have that ability.

Khedrak, may I ask which addon is able to display a history of quests prior to addon installation? (No offense intended Harven.)

Harven: Do you plan on looking into a fix for the nil value error? Thanks very much!

I had the same error as the previous poster. Had to remove an empty entry for 'Wayrest Sewers I' from my saved variables in order to use the journal on that character again.

Yesterday it simply started showing some errors when my game starts but only on one character on others it works fine. When the game starts the error is this one

user:/AddOns/HarvensQuestJournal/HarvensQuestJournal.lua:708:table index is nil
stack traceback:
user:/AddOns/HarvensQuestJournal/HarvensQuestJournal.lua:708:in function
user:/AddOns/HarvensQuestJournal/HarvensQuestJournal.lua1223:in function 'HarvensQuestJournal.AddonLoaded'

and any other time when i try to open the journal it is this error

:1:attempt to index a nil value
stack traceback:
:1:in function '(main chunk)'

I really dont know the reason and the help would be appreaciated. Thx in advance.

P.S. As i said it works normaly on other characters just not on this one suddenly. Strange i know.

OK NVM I found an addon that does. I don't see why yours can not for it would make it better.
