Details

  • At the first UI load per login, this function returns the time since the Unix epoch instead. Appears to give the correct value as of the second QUEST_LOG_UPDATE event to occur after login.
  • In 6.x returned incorrect answers for players inside instances hosted on servers that use a different reset time (eg Oceanic and Brazilian players in US continental instance servers). Fixed in 7.x

A simple test case:

print("init", GetQuestResetTime())

local frame = CreateFrame("Frame")
frame:RegisterEvent("PLAYER_LOGIN")
frame:RegisterEvent("QUEST_LOG_UPDATE")
frame:SetScript("OnEvent", function(self, event)
    print(event, GetQuestResetTime())
end)
