I'm reading a lot of comments directly comparing this new addition to Quest Helper, and I'm seeing one very important distinction.This new addition is a part of the mob tooltip. You not only have to be near the mob in question, you have to mouse over it. Not only does this mean you have to have already found the general location of said mob, you have to actually find the mob itselfso you can mouse over, not even /target can save you.This is a far cry from a big red arrow telling you "Go over there and kill 12 of those." It is essentially just an improvement to the already standard quest tracker, it is a streamlining of functionality so that you no longer need to keep flipping through your quest log to see how many Hungry Worg's you still need, only to find out that you were supposed to be going after Starving Worgs.This is not quest helper. It will not help you find your objective unless your method of searching is running around blindly and mousing over everything you find. Stop complaining, stop panicking, this isn't dumbing down, it's streamlining.

Agreed. I would be very glad to have the tooltip indicator as is shown in the screenshot, but I think that Mike was overreacting by calling this "dumbing down the questing game" when all it's doing is keeping you from having to open your quest log all the time. You still have to find the mobs on your own :)
