Just a status update... worked all weekend on the quest compendium. Fixed more bugs I found with data. Am in the process of parsing and normalizing supplemental data for the missing quests.

I would also like to revamp the quest api to use filters similar to item & crafting compendium, to save some room on UI. Haven't decided if that will be this upcoming release though. I may just release the better data / bug fixes.

Behind the scenes with every release is a whole lot of work. To get the data and pair it down into lua are small applications in and of themselves. I've identified several problems with the quest compendium application, that I plan to fix. This should greatly affect what gets presented in the UI in terms of data shown for quests (I wasn't showing all the data I could have).

My plan is to have this resolved and working for next release, as well as try to get many of the missing quests added in. Again a bit thanks to all of you that have submitted missing quest information. This helps in identifying and testing why we aren't getting the data, and a good benchmark for testing when I've plugged the holes.

Thank you for taking the time to post and show support!

I'd be all for doing deed compendium. The problem I'm having is the information available on deeds is pretty sparse. I'll keep looking.

New version of compendium released tonight. This release was a big one. The big thing to note in this release is the addition of the Crafting Compendium. I tried very hard to meet many of the requests sent my way. If you do not see an improvement in this release, please do not give up. We'll get there!

Thank you for all your input and support!

Very nice plugin man . Glad you're in my kin lol. Anyways, this is a great plugin for newer players, especially F2P ones. Keep up the good work!!

Thank you for kind words! I'm hoping some of the newer modules might better cater to end game crowd. I'm just about to release 1.3-beta, which will include the Crafting Compendium. I'm hoping this allows folks to quickly see what kinds of gear can be crafted for them, what it takes to make it, etc.. It will have all the filtering capabilities of the item compendium.. So you can say, show me all recipies that make level 60-70 Heavy armored boots. As a non-crafter, you then have a stepping stone to go looking for a crafter to make x, y, and z.. you can even look on AH for materials that would be required.

In the current addon api, they do not appear to have any integration with the quest tracking system, so the second request, while I would *LOVE* to introduce it, is just not possible atm. That said, we can perhaps add some sort of "Auto-filter" for quests that are near your level / zone. I believe the api provides information on the player.. if I remember the area/zone is one of those (will double check).

I will consider your suggestions for fine tuning and adding user enter-able level. There are all sorts of filters we can add to the questing.. The problem I had is in how to visually fit all the filters into the UI. Personally I would like filters for things like, "show me all quests that do not require prerequesites". -or- "Show me what quests I need to do, in order to start ____ quest". "Filter all quests that yeild items -or- reputation -or- money". Filter by quest types, PvP, Tasks, etc..

This plug in is awesome! I've been looking for something like that WoW quest tracker plug in for awhile, guess I found it.l

I'd have 2 requests for it though...
First one, kinda minor... I'd like to be able to see the quest level ranges as an input from the user instead of a pre-set range.

The second one, well I have no idea how complicated programming is for LOTRO plug ins, so this could be about as easy as moving a mountain...
To have the plug in be "intelligent", like the WoW plug in, in its quest listing. Meaning, it would not display quests you have already completed or the parts of a quest chain that you haven't completed the prerequisite quests for yet.

If that second would require you to quit your job and hole up like a hermit for a year, forget it, I can figure those things out myself. Just a thought.
Otherwise, great job on this one. I used it a fair amount in just the few hours I had it installed.

Thank you for the feedback!

In Compendiums initial release the Lorebook is a big source of the questing data. The quest you listed is not listed there. There are other great sources for quest data, I just need to take the time to go find them and incorporate what is missing. Another big concern of mine is the whether the data is valid or not. When I was initially thinking about starting Compendium, I found inconsistent data. I'm told that in one of the expansions some of the quests levels were adjusted. Not every website is up to date on that, but it makes me hesitate in choice.

Ultimately, I'd like to provide a way that players can correct the data while in the game, and then submit the data back to be added in in newer releases. I'd even be open to partnering with some of the other lotro websites to ensure they keep up to date data as well.

That said, thank you for pointing out the missing quest. I am a very new player, whose only character is level 14. So I have yet to know and experience much of the game. Good examples like this help me find the weak points in the data.

The version number is in the "About" window of Compendium. There should be a little question mark in the lower left of the window. It should pull up misc info. I will see if we can't make version more prominent in next release.

Missing quest: Our Past In Stone

Just noticed this quest missing in the compendium.
Our Past In Stone
Lonelands
Given by the Earth-kin

Great add-on

edit:
I might also suggest a note on the UI or a tooltip on the start icon to tell which version is running.

For next release I've been working on addition called "Crafting Compendium", which will show all the learned recipies, what they can make, and the ingrediants for each. I will also attempt to cross link these in the item compendium database to show that the item is "craftable by <profession>"

Another addition that I'm working on is the ability to resize the compendium window. This feature is almost complete. I may release this as a quick patch prior to the crafting one depending on how long it takes me to parse & correlate all the craft data.
