Rarity

Tooltips

Inspired by Bunny Hunter, Rarity tracks how many chances you've had to obtain various rare items throughout the game. It will tell you how likely you are to obtain the item, track how long you've been farming for it, etc. Primarily, this is useful for farming companion pets and mounts, but it also supports virtually any item including patterns and designs, archaeology projects, etc.

Features

  • Provides an LDB feed, tooltips, and progress bar, allowing you to track items of your choice

Includes all the features of Bunny Hunter, plus:

  • Fully user configurable—you can add things to track on your own
  • Supports zone-wide drops (i.e. Hyacinth Macaw)
  • Supports containers (i.e. White Polar Bear)
  • Supports two-level loots (i.e. Disgusting Oozeling)
  • Supports archaeology projects (i.e. Scepter of Azj'Aqir)
  • Supports fishing (i.e. Sea Turtle)
  • Supports item usage (i.e. Mojo)
  • Supports items dropped from bosses that require a group to defeat
  • Supports items obtained from holiday boss bags (i.e. Big Love Rocket)
  • Supports items looted from world containers (i.e. Bonkers)
  • Supports some special cases (i.e. Elementium Geode, Mysterious Camel Figurine)
  • Supports things other than pets and mounts (i.e. Skyshard, Primal Egg, recipes, legendary components, etc.)
  • Supports bonus coin rolls (i.e. Mogu Rune of Fate)
  • Will properly ignore skinning
  • Lets you modify your kill count without having to edit saved vars, in case you started farming before you installed Rarity
  • Automatically imports data from Bunny Hunter
  • Shows an "achievement" alert when you finally obtain the item!
  • Automatically scans you to determine if you already have any companions or mounts
  • Automatically scans your boss kill statistics to keep track of attempts for many items
  • Shift-click to report your progress to chat
  • Sort items by name, difficulty, or percent complete
  • Tracks how long you've been farming this session, day, week, and month

You should also install

  • Rarity works best with an LDB display like Fortress, Button Bin, or Titan Panel. If you don't have a display, turn on Rarity's minimap icon. There are lots of displays available — if you don't like one, try another!
  • AddonLoader is highly recommended. This will let you keep the configuration UI unloaded until you need it.
  • Collectinator is a good companion add-on to Rarity. It will show you where to obtain everything that Rarity tracks.
  • Archy is recommended to replace the default Archaeology UI, which Rarity has been known to cause problems with.

    I just started doing VoA for the Reins of the Grand Black War Mammoth & noticed that Rarity seems to track on the alliance version for some of my characters even though i only play horde.

    The two i noticed were my Blood Elf Paladin & Pandaren Monk however their runs are lower than the alliance total so id assume there are others tracking on the wrong one also.

    Also noticed that if i click it to horde only then back to alliance only it adds extra attempts on.

    Could i have some settings wrong possibly as i cannot figure out why this is?

    Great! I've just tagged a build, so it should pick up those translations.

    I fixed the item ID issue in r212, which is alpha. WowAce packager seems very slow today so stay patient.

    @Urtgard: Go

    OK I'll fix that item ID. The Lua error is fixed in r211, but WowAce doesn't seem to be packaging it yet.

    Yeah, I got this:

    Message:
    Interface\AddOns\Rarity\Core.lua:856:
    attempt to concatenate upvalue 'lastNode' (a nil value)
    ...
    

    But I think, two Tickets are enough^^

    Another little thing:
    You gave "Death Adder Hatchling" the wrong itemId. Now we got two "Ashleaf Spriteling" :)

    @Urtgard: Go

    Great, thanks for letting me know! Unfortunately the update contains a bug or two, and I also have a bunch of alpha quality untested code, so I can't push out a new build until I get that stuff tested. As soon as I do, your translation will be in the next build.

    Thanks, great update.

    I added the german translation for "Crane Nest" and "Timeless Chest".

    @elionor: Go

    Rarity already does track previous kills if the kills are available as a Statistic (many boss fights from Wrath of the Lich King and on can be tracked this way). It is impossible to track previous attempts for anything else.

    WoW does not allow backing up of data prior to a crash. It has never been possible and never will be. If you are worried about a crash, you can cause your data to be saved immediately by typing the following command to reload your UI:

    /console reloadui
