This latest update is an overhaul of our steps icons to better help users instantly identify their current task and I have to admit it was long overdue 🙂
- New steps icons (see help tab)
- New multi icons for multi tasked steps. eg Killing an NPC to collect item steps will display a combination Kill + Collect icon.
- All steps icons have been adjusted to reflect their appropriate task.
Here is a quick example of the differences
Before the icons were generic and bland… it didn’t really provide you with much indication of what you’re supposed to be doing.
The cog and book icon was over used with many of our quest steps.
It should be a lot more detailed like this..
Now each icon is matched with the task to instantly describe what you should be doing for each step.
The cog icon suggest a general task that will cover steps that doesn’t involve any combat, looting or speaking to any NPC.
The spear icon is a Kill task and it is used when a step only require killing
an npc to complete.
The bag icon is a Collect or Looting task and it is used when a step only require collecting
an item to complete.
The chat icon is a Speaking task and it is used when a step only require speaking
to an NPC to complete.
To make it more detailed we also added extra icons for steps that involve multiple task eg.
This is a Kill and Collect
icon, eg for the quest ‘Rummaging Through the Remains
‘ above involve killing an NPC and collecting an item from the corpse to complete the quest.
This is a Kill and General task
icon which is usually for task that involve using an item to complete.
This is for a step that involve Speaking and Killing
For steps that involve using a vehicle
For steps that require Speaking
then using a Vehicle
This step is used when you need to accept one or several Random Daily
quest(s) from the NPCs in the area. It will require a manual tick after you accept the quest(s).
The book icon will remain to be used for ‘As you go..
‘ step and also special notes
that will likely require manual ticking for to continue.
All right I hope you find our new icon system straight forward and easy to identify, our goal to always improve the guides and addon in anyway we can.
