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.

    FYI the Mysterious Camel Figurine detection doesn't work, I've tested it now. I'll have to come up with a different way to do it.

    Not at this time. Thanks for the suggestion. I'll work on adding it, but it will take some time and effort on my part since mining isn't part of the core detection features. (And I don't even have a miner hehe.)

    Your ticket is here

    Can I have you do me a favor? Do this:

    • Install the add-on called Spew
    • Log in, and type /rarity debug
    • Reload your UI
    • Type /spew Rarity.zones
    • Go to your ticket and attach a screenshot of what you see
    • Also on that ticket, post a comment telling me what the correct German name for the two STV zones is supposed to be

    Thanks!

    @Allara Maybe it has to do with the Localization. I am playing with a German Wow version.

    @Xelanos: Go

    I am unable to reproduce your issue. Looting mobs in Northern Stranglethorn and The Cape of Stranglethorn correctly increment the attempt counter for Hyacinth Macaw.

    Make sure the item has tracking enabled.

    Are you in a non-US locale? If so, this could be the issue, although it's supposed to work in any language. Let me know what language you're running.

    Hi, thanks for this great Addon, will help me a lot on my way to the 150 Companions. :) Today i tried to farm the Parrot Cage (Hyacinth Macaw) but Rarity didnt count any of the mobs i looted in STV. Maybe I am doing something wrong. :)

    Edit: Other non Zone drops like the Fox Kit were counted very well.

    There's no good way for me to know that you're looting arch fragments vs. a mob, without scanning for the arch fragments by ID. I'll work on adding that logic in, it should eliminate the issue. It is pretty minor though.

    Was doing an arch project in Hillsbrad today, and the first archaeology loot counted towards the cat carrier, but only the first, pretty minor and odd that it was only the first loot.
