Please read the following proposal to improve the Adventure Compendium, and give us your feedback and thoughts on the idea . Positive and/or negative comments are fine:
The current Adventure Compendium UI does not currently address a variety of important quest features. Raids are not listed out separately, and there’s nothing to track the either the new sagas or the new XP ransack. We want to update the Compendium to deal with these issues, without changing the basic concept of the feature (i.e. it’s a bunch of sortable lists of quests.)
• Enable you to check your raid timers and raid completions via the Adventure Compendium UI.
• Enable you to check your Saga progress via the Adventure Compendium UI.
• Enable you to check your daily XP bonus or ransack for a particular quest.
• Enable you to find level-appropriate quests that have both Epic and Heroic difficulty.
Two new tabs would be added to the Adventure Compendium: Raids and Sagas.
The Adventure Tab would change as follows:
• Split the Level column into Epic Level and Heroic Level columns that can be sorted separately. This deals with a long-standing complaint about not always being able to find quests for your level if they have both Heroic and Epic difficulty.
• Add a new XP Bonus/Ransack column. This would be shown as a percentage, ranging from 120% (you’re getting the daily bonus) to 10% (fully ransacked.)
Raids would no longer be displayed on the Adventures Tab, as they would now appear on the Raid tab instead. The Raids Tab is very similar to the Adventures Tab – it has the Search box, the Find Group button, etc. –but has somewhat different columns:
• There’s a new “Completions” column that displays your raid completions out of the 20 needed to get your guaranteed loot.
• There’s a new “Timer” column that displays a countdown timer showing how much time remains before you can play the raid again. There’s a UI option to click and “bypass timer” using shards; the raid bypass timer item from the Store is also still an option.
• There is no XP Bonus/Ransack column (since the raid timer prevents this from being very useful information.)
The Saga Tab is similar in spirit to the Adventures/Wilderness/Raids tabs, but of course is very different under the hood due to the special nature of sagas. The main Sagas Tab displays information on the sagas themselves – that is, on the saga quest chains, and not on the specific quests within the sagas.
The columns in the Sagas Tab display are:
• Saga Name.
• Type. Whether the Saga is made up of Heroic quests or Epic quests.
• Status. Whether this Saga is currently Underway or not.
• Quests Completed. If the Saga is Underway, how many of the Saga’s quests have been completed for this run-through.
• Saga Points. If the Saga is Underway, how many saga points the player has earned so far for this run-through.
• Skips used. Only relevant if the Saga is Underway.
• Skips used as VIP. Only relevant if the Saga is Underway
Sample screen layout for the Sagas Tab:
|The Blue Saga
|The Green Saga
|The Red Saga
|Double click on a saga to see the quests in that saga
To see information on the specific quests within a saga, you double-click on the saga’s name on the Sagas Tab. This brings up the Saga Quests Display (ideally in a separate window) which shows the individual component quests in that saga.
