[Request] Delete Previously Completed Quests from Database with Patch 3.3 Changes

According to the newest testrealm patchnotes (http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/patch...atchnotes.html) Blizzard has added a very nice feature for addons to the 3.3 patch:

"You can now query for a list of completed quests with "QueryQuestsCompleted()" then wait for the "QUEST_QUERY_COMPLETE" event, and call "etQuestsCompleted(<luatable>)"."

This change would theoretically allow Carbonite to get the list of all quests a character has completed so far, even if a character did not used Carbonite before. I know it would take way too much work to implement full "Loremaster" (http://www.wowhead.com/?achievement=1681) support, but it would be pro if Carbonite could query the list of completed quests, then delete those from the Carbonite quest database.

This would be a huge help to all those (e.g. myself ) trying to complete all the WoW quests for the loremaster achievement!

That would definatly be a great help. Loremaster is rough in itself. Great request. +++

Yes Please

Having the ability to click a button in Carbonite to auto update the quest history would be awesome, or even automatically do it on login (similar to the item database pop-up in Carbonite).

Look forward to seeing what you guys do with this new option.

Thumbs up Sticky This Thread!

Well - I think this is a *GREAT* enhancement that Blizz is doing. I hope Carbonite stickies this request to their screens so that as soon as it's available they are working on it! :-) (I'm hoping it wouldn't be too difficult, but I'm not a programmer)

This would have my vote as the highest end enhancement to introduce when it's available.

Blizzard should have added this option a loooooooong time ago. (Added so many "o"s for dramatic effect.)

I'm very glad they decided to do it though and i would simply love to have it when 3.3 hits ^^ Besides the Loremaster title, there is a lot of gold to be made with missed Outland and Northrend quests :P

From patch notes:
You can now query for a list of completed quests with "QueryQuestsCompleted()" then wait for the "QUEST_QUERY_COMPLETE" event, and call "etQuestsCompleted(<luatable>)"
I was not holding my breath on that, but glad to see Blizzard added it. I will definitely try to support it in the version of Carbonite that comes out for patch 3.3.

Talking

That is awesome news

Any chance of a PTR build so we can test it out, or are you going to wait till live?

Awesome work guys and thank you for keeping Carbonite alive

Changes for 3.3:

Added fetching of completed quests from server on login and adding them to quest history.
Added "Update completed quest history on login" option.

No problem.

Not sure if the patch will be out tomorrow or not. The PTR server is still up. Carbonite appears to be working fine after I fixed the errors from Blizzards changes to the Quest Log. I will probably put up a new version late tonight, if it appears we are getting the patch.

I have an entire guild at your disposal by the way willing to do some rigorous testing.
