Instanced Quests Question

Recommended Posts

Hello all, i am interested in creating some custom content in a away like the lich king area, after certain quests,
the npc spawns in the area changes as you progress through quests.

I am wondering how this sort of thing is done, would like to do this sort of thing at storm wind.
I just cant find information on changing spawns (like instancing) as you progress through quests.

would be great if someone could give me info on how this would be possible as in, can it be done in the database, if so is it classed as a instance? or do you have to script it.

Many thanks.

I am not familiar with "like the lich king area" specifically, but if you look at the quest you are referring to on wowhead (for the questid) you may be able to research how the quest was (if it was) scripted (via the quest id). This is going to be a fundamental activity for developing and researching quests for you; long run (This is where people are using the Sai/Keira2 tools)

If possible I would look for lower level scripted events (vanilla-esck) as they likely have been completed very blizzard like, as opposed to a obscure quest.

Example, Apprentice Mirveda 15402 has a quest chain (9254, 8487, 8488). After grinding some soil in 8487 you need to protect her in quest 8488. Starting 8488 will summon three mobs. (if you are not familiar with the quest ... create blood elf, . character level 7  .go creature id 15402 .quest add 8487 .quest complete 8487 and run it quick).

If you want to do this type of activity at the end of a quest, or have different npc hostilities it's really of little difference.

      Hi !
      I'm using last version of 3.3.5 TC branch (with TDB 335.19061), and we have an issue with the mage lvl 20 class quest (Investigate the Alchemist Shop).
      This bug has been reported and partially fixed by different people, as seen on this github page : https://github.com/TrinityCore/TrinityCore/issues/18997
      I tried to re-apply this :
      The ghosts are now selectable but the box cannot be placed neither.
      Conclusion : at the moment, this quest is supposed to be fixed in #9717, but there are still problems with it. A c++ rewrite has even be proposed in 2014. This seems to be tricky though.
      Anyone here could maybe help me about it ?
      I'm trying to fix it for 3 days by myself, and quite confused now...
      Thanks in advance

      I have the first class quest bugged, The quest to choose my artifact weapon, by the way i have the 3 artifacts weapons but i haven't complete the quest ''More weapons of legeneds'', i need to complete this to make the nexts quests behind this one. It makes no sense because i already have obtained the artifact weapons.

      The latest git pull is freezing/crashing the client on quests.   When you try to start a quest, or continue a quest it freezes the client or crashes it.
      No log output to see what it is doing.
