    How's that quest coming?

    Serious question: My g/f and I play regularly, but the default UI for Party Sync is not awesome. I was curious? Do you quest/level with friends/partners/spouses and is there a special Addon that helps keep track of where everyone is on their progress? Maybe even something that sees when a quest is accepted and maybe auto-shared with the group? She gets frustrated because I am a beast at leveling, and I never know what her progress is or what she is still working on. Any advice about how to effectively resolve our group questing would be great. Thanks.

    I have never been into addons too much and I haven’t played retail too much but if I remember correctly when you’re in a group your quests should have a number on the left hand side the looks like this [1] or [2], this means there are 1 or 2 people in your party on the same quest. So just pick up the same quests, check your quest log and anything without this mark are the quests where you guys need to catch up or pick up

    While this is helpful, it is also part of the default UI which tells you who else is on the quest. However, about 3 years ago, there was a functioning addon that not only showed you who else was on the quest in your group, but it would also break down how much of what, or how far along in the quest the others were. This way you knew how many of X or Y they still needed so you could help them along and get done quicker. I need both the macro and the micro level overview of their status.

    The default UI does this, if you mouse over the quest itself it gives you a list of peoples progress on that quest.

It's amazing there are no other threads discussing the squish, as I'm confident you would have just posted in them if they did exist.

    Yes, and again, if you are done with the quest it shows you nothing. I am looking for a party app that lets me see the progress of the other person even long after I finish it. Because with a party sync, if one of you is not on the quest, it actually vanishes for the other.

    The other person could just tell you how far along they are.

    At a high level, If you play with PartySync, it'll put you at the level and progression of the quests that the leveler is on. From my experience. My wife has returned to WoW and wanted to level a new character because she's fallen out with her Druid, so, we're leveling, and I on PartySync do get confused as quests will stop functioning if she's ahead, and the quest progression available is those she hasn't done, or about to do, of course.
    FOMO: "Fear Of Missing Out", also commonly known as people with a mental issue of managing time and activities, many expecting others to fit into their schedule so they don't miss out on things to come. If FOMO becomes a problem for you, do seek help, it can be a very unhealthy lifestyle..

    This is the current process, but thanks for the obvious answer.

    You can also use party sync, that way you can both work on every quest one of you haven't finished yet
