Jump to: navigation, search
The Map & Quest Log in windowed mode as of Battle for Azeroth.

The Map & Quest Log interface contains the World Maps and the Quest Log.

Map

Explored areas:

  • Any area of the map your character has discovered will appear with details (buildings, cave entrances, etc).

Character locations:

  • Your character: Your character will appear on the map at the location as a grey arrow, pointing at your direction.
  • Party members: If your character is in a party, any party members will appear on the map at the location as a dot, colored in that party member's class color.

Map UI redesigned

In the patch 3.3.0 PTR, the World map UI feature has been redesigned and combined with the Quest Log feature.

Animation

Patch 4.2.0 introduced a new animation when opening the world map, however, opening the map now cancels any other action in progress such as fishing.

Quest Log

Main article: Quest Log

The Quest Log is found on the right-hand side of the interface, listing the status and details of all currently active quests the character has not completed, or completed but not turned in.
