Rarity tracks how many times you've tried to obtain various rare items like mounts, battle pets, and toys. It will tell you how likely you are to obtain the item, track how long you've been farming for it, and tell you how lucky you've been so far. Although it's mostly used for mounts, battle pets, and toys, it supports pretty much any item, including profession patterns, archaeology projects, and more.

Out of the box, Rarity includes support for every single mount, battle pet, and toy in the game which require some time to farm. It also includes support for some mount-related items like Skyshard, Primal Egg, and Giant Dinosaur Bone. It'll even notice if you mouseover a Mysterious Camel Figurine, plus lots of other stuff. Rarity factors in the size of a typical group when determining probabilities, and can also tell you if you've killed various bosses this week (or day). Holiday just started, and you didn't notice? Rarity will give you a helpful reminder to run those holiday dungeons or daily quests if you still need an item from them.

If Rarity doesn't track something you want to track, you can add it yourself! Just about everything is user configurable.

Curious what math is going on behind the scenes? The author of Bunny Hunter created the original algorithms. He wrote an article about it here. Your chance to obtain an item doesn't increase as you farm it; Rarity is just telling you how lucky you've been so far. It can be remarkably cathartic to see a progress bar move up as you spend hours upon hours trying for that Disgusting Oozeling.

Main features

  • Rarity is primarily an LDB feed with a large tooltip. It can function as either a mini-map icon (you have to turn this on in the options), or as a standard LDB feed (use a display like Fortress, Button Bin, Titan Panel, or Chocolate Bar).
  • Provides a progress bar, which you can toggle by clicking the icon or feed label.
  • Adds info to NPC and item tooltips, showing you if it drops or contains something that Rarity tracks. Rare mobs with a guaranteed drop show which item they drop and if you've defeated them yet.
  • Includes full source info, telling you how to obtain everything Rarity tracks.

Other features

  • Adds an Auto Refresh checkbox to the Group Finder search feature
  • Can automatically add waypoints to TomTom for certain items
  • Uses statistics whenever possible to keep track of attempts
  • Breaks your farming down by session, day, week, and month
  • Looks at your instance locks to see if you've defeated various bosses recently
  • Reminds you if you need to farm a holiday dungeon or daily quest, and hides holiday items that aren't available right now
  • Supports bonus coin rolls
  • Automatically screenshots when you obtain an item
  • Keeps track of rare achievements like Frostbitten and Glorious
  • You can add your own items to track
  • Lets you modify your attempt count without having to edit saved variables
  • Automatically imports data from Bunny Hunter if you're switching

    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:

    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

    ok so i understand that rarity doesn't track kills before download but are there any addons out there that can do this? or would something like that be even possible? also is there anyway to back up the data in case of a crash and your UI gets reset (this happened to my twice since last post)? i mean i get the personal counts getting reset? but isnt there any way to backup the attempts you made with rarity installed and running without having to update your record weekly?

    @dysng: Go

    Those are supposed to be soloed. You need to personally loot the boss for an attempt to be counted.
