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.

    Thought I should mention, it is able to link the item in the other announcements, just not the channel one.

    I'm using enUS.

    What locale are you running? (enUS, or something else?) It seems the item link is causing the error, but the same thing works just fine for me in enUS.

    @Allara, finally figured out how to see LUA errors:) I have everything disabled but autoloader and rarity. Also have channel set to guild. Fresh install of Rarity, also deleted cache, wtf. Here is the error I'm getting. Perhaps its just my computer but just in case its not.

    As I said, try reinstalling Rarity, and make sure you're not running the no-lib version. Check if there are any Lua errors. I'm unable to reproduce the problem, so you'll have to keep experimenting.

    @Allara,

    All of the announcements will work except for "channel" (the party/raid one will say not in party/raid so may work once I test those) but the rest of them guild,say, yell will not display any information. I've tried reloading, deleting my cache, wtf folder, disabling all addon's but rarity and still nothing will show when looting a mob. Tested it on killing gundrak raptors. Any other ideas on getting it to work?

    @Zurgzurg: Go

    Hey Zurgzurg,

    I just tested in-game, and guild announcements are working just fine for me. Setup exactly as you described. Killing a mob doesn't do it, you need to loot the mob in most cases. Try various other channels to see if they work. Also try reinstalling the add-on, making sure you don't install the "no-lib" version.

    As far as I can tell, the feature is working properly.

    Hey Allara,

    Love the add on, is there a trick to the announcements, or is it broken? I have "Channel" selected w/ "Sub section" marked as "Guild Chat" but when I complete an arch project or kill a mob it does not announce to my guild that I attempted? (And for the rares I was tracking announce is turned on) (Perhaps there could be added a "test announcement" button in order to see how it will be outputted.

    lol ok, fair enough. Looks like I get to change my oozing farming toon that doesn't already have it!

    Sorry, Rarity doesn't support repeated farming of the Oozeling. It's the only repeatable pet that it does not support. The explanation of why is too complicated for a non-developer. Sorry for the inconvenience!
