Quest Interface Improvements in Shadowlands: 3D Indicator of Tracked Quest Objectives

Recommended Posts

With Shadowlands Alpha now live, we've noticed various improvements to the quest interface. There's now a visual 3D indicator that displays how far you are away from quest objectives in real time and it is easier to distinguish main quests from side quests.

Quest objectives are now marked on the map with shield-shaped icons instead of round circles.

Here's a preview of the 3D indicator which displays the current distance from your quest objective. It's now easier to identify if an objective is above or below you.

You can also place pins on the map and share them with other players in chat.

Here's a short description of the new feature taken from the developer update.

We have been making improvements to our quest interface, with an eye toward better distinguishing major quests that are required to advance the narrative from optional side quests that tell more localized stories. Our work-in-progress 3D indicator of tracked quest objective locations will be available to use, which aims to reduce the need to bring up the map when navigating the world and help more clearly identify when an objective is above or below you. We’re also rolling out a system that allows players to set a personal waypoint on the map as well as share that pin in chat channels, so that you should no longer need an add-on to convey exactly where Rustfeather just spawned.

Thank God!  This should be a great help is reducing the amount of spending hours and hours doing quests that are not part of your main quest line or objective.  For example if you have three hours to play on evening, you don't want to waste an hour doing stuff you never needed to do anyway to meet your goal.  Nicely done, Blizzard!

      In Battle for Azeroth, players were given the choice to side with Sylvanas, but the latest Dragonflight questline involving Odyn lacks any choice leaving Warrior players unhappy.  
      Back in Battle for Azeroth, Horde players could either side with Sylvanas or against her during the story. Patch 10.2 introduces a similar questline that revolves around Odyn and Vyranoth. If you didn't play through it, I won't go into any spoilers, but Warrior players were not particularly happy with how the questline was executed, as they could not side with Odyn. 
      As a testament to that, we have the following Reddit thread with over 1.9K upvotes by Reddit user Maleficent-Way-2046 who says "I am a Warrior and have the Battlelord title, I carry Warswords of the Valarjar, why would I side against Odyn?" Well, that's a good question!
      Instead, Blizzard could have given Warriors a choice to side with Odyn and some special interactions based on their choice. What do you think?

      We have some Fyrakk issues getting resolved, Mythic+ a lot of item tweaks and PvP class changes in today's batch of hotfixes.
      December 1 (Source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      Amirdrassil, the Dream’s Hope Fyrakk Resolved an issue causing Fyrakk to become unlootable if killed during Shadowflame Devastation in Stage Two. Resolved an issue causing Fyrakk's energy bar to increase too quickly in Stage Three on Mythic difficulty. Dawn of the Infinite: Galakrond's Fall Iridikron Timeline Transcendence's 100% damage increase now also increases the damage of an affected player's pets and summons even if they are not within Chromie's bubble. Timeline Transcendence no longer applies onto pets or summons. The Everbloom Ancient Protectors The visual effect for Dhulu's Noxious Discharge have been updated. Waycrest Manor Addressed an issue where Soulbound Goliath's Soul Thorns ability will fail on shapeshifted players.  
      Items
      Augury of the Primal Flame proc rate increased by 50% and damage decreased by 33%. Developers’ note: While this change should not impact the trinket's expected performance, we hope that a more consistent proc rate will reduce its overall variance. Blossom of Amirdrassil’s effects increased by 10%. Belor'relos, the Suncaller self-damage increased by 20%. Fixed an issue where Branch of the Tormented Ancient would not reset its cooldown upon ending an encounter. Fixed an issue where Gift of Ursine Vengeance stacks would be removed on ally death or mind control. Vaskarn, the dracthyr vendor in the Emerald Dream's Central Encampment, will now display her crest trade-up items to anyone who has earned the right to purchase them, even if they cannot currently purchase them because they are too close to the cap on the higher-level crest.  
      Player versus Player
      Removed rank text from all Rated PvP gear, including PvP Class Sets. Developers' note: This change does not effect item levels or upgrade tracks. Mage Arcane Fixed an issue that caused the Amirdrassil 4-set bonus to not be reduced in PvP combat. Frost Fixed an issue that caused Frost Bomb 's explosion to be prevented by Grounding Totem.
