Hi all,

Is anybody like me and thinks that we should have a compendium of quest info for AA? There are some quests in-game which don't have speciic information connected to them because they are part of a larger chain.

While I personally appreciated the starter guides on the site, and would love a compendium of info on that level, I understand how time consuming it can be to write. The first big quest such as the temple, other big ones like Mendealious, etc, I think deserve guides, if not everything.

What do you all think?

I'd likethis idea, especially since I want to get back in to alter again.

If you guys think you have it hard on the islands, wait till you get to the mainland where things really get obscure. I think that there are so many quests at this point that the thought of sorting through the difficult ones might seem overwhelming. On my quest log, I have like 40 or so that have been there for years because I hit a dead end either in combat strength or no clue where to go or how to get such and such for so and so or how to get through this maze or the quest got moved around, and that's all on the mainland. But maybe start listing some quests people are having trouble with and I would be happy to help if I can. Again, solutions are subject to change with the addition of new areas and level tweaks, which would make a concrete guide difficult to maintain. . Goes without saying that this is going to go into spoiler territory.

I actually have a couple of playthroughs where I run through most of the quests on the low islands.  I can put those up and maybe create a new character to see how much I remember and write stuff down as I do them again.

Coding is not hard. No, not at all.
What is hard is making code that accepts different and sometimes unexpected types of input and still works.
This is what truly takes a large amount of effort on a developer's part.

Alter Aeon has a wiki, with a section for quests.  Feel free to edit and add to it:

I'll take your quest compendium and suggest a gear/spellcomp resource instead.

That's cool I guess, for those who aren't interested in QInfo

thinking about it, one usually leads to the other, lol!  Are you having issues with any quests in particular?

As previously noted, quests can change from time to time, which has dissuaded me personally from putting effort into writing comprehensive quest guides.  What we could feasibly do is make the information generated on http://alteraeon.com:8080/quests more detailed, possibly adding quests stages and whatnot.  Also too many quests lack an http description, which makes me sad.

Shadowfax,

That seems like a better alternative than what is currently available, generating more information on quest pages.
