About RareTracker

RareTracker is my take on a rare-mob hunting addon.

If you are in a zone with Rare mobs, then RareTracker will display 2 things.

1. A window listing rare mobs, distance to their spawn point and an arrow showing COMPASS direction

This window can be moved by dragging the title bar around whilst holding the left mouse button.

Clicking with the left mouse button on the darker green MODE: line, will toggle between Available and ALL modes.

Left clicking on any of the elements (arrow/name/range) will toggle the inclusion of that named mob from the
list. This can be used (along with Available mode) to only show the ones you are still interested in finding.

Right clicking on any of these elements will toggle the coloration of the entry. Useful for marking you've visted that location.

In ALL mode, the excluded ones are shown, but their name is coloured Red - they can be clicked to toggle
inclusion status as normal.

If you RIGHT click the MODE: line, it will show a red bar with 2 labels - NAME: and RANGE: - moving the mousewheel
up/down over these labels will cause the textsize used in the tracker to change.

2. A small round minimap icon. If this is in black/white it can be dragged around by holding leftmouse button. Right clicking will change it into a color icon. Left clicking the coloured icon will switch between green/red states. In red state, all other UI elements are disabled and hidden.

3. An icon showing a white diamond on a red, green or gray background.

If it is black/white it can be moved by dragging it around, whilst holding the left mouse button.

Right clicking will toggle between locked (red/green) and movable states (gray)

It can be resized by using the mousewheel up/down whilst hovering over it.

The icon will have a green background if there is a macro associated with it, or red if there is not.

A macro is built and added to the icon for all rare mobs that appear in the tracker and are within 300m of your current location.

The icon can be left-clicked to activate the macro that is associated with it.

There are a few /raretracker commands that can be used:

    /raretracker background - toggles display of gray background
    /raretracker text - toggles text glow effect
    /raretracker reset - to reset locations of buttons/windows.

+ Updated layout of tracker so that it isnt quite as long! 16 rows per column
+ Added an autohide option + autohide timer slider. If active the tracker will disppear after X seconds, and reappear when you click its target button

+ Added NT rares - locs from :
+ FR/DE/RU translations from the zone achievements - hopefully they are right!

+ Bugfix for ppl not using Docker and attempting to use the config button

+ Left-Clicking on the direction arrow sets up a waypoint
+ Right-Clicking on the direction arrow clears a waypoint
+ Added an icon to the RareTracker header bar. Clicking it brings up a list of rare mobs, and you can add/remove them from the tracker here. The list is kept short and can be scrolled with the mouse wheel.

+ Fix an error that v04 introduced! Oops.

+ Fixed error when trying to unlock/move the macro button

+ Added data export to MapPOI

+ Added /raretracker command line
+    /raretracker background - toggles display of gray background
+    /raretracker text - toggles text glow effect
+    /raretracker reset - to reset locations of buttons/windows.
+ Moved Lung Feeder into chronicle
+ Only show number indicators if there is actually more than 1 location
+ Hide button when in a zone where nothing is being tracked

+ Added Dendrome
+ Added some Russian translations
+ Added more possible spawn locations for several rares

+ Updated for the 2.3 macro change

+ Added suppressmacrofailures to macro (not that it does anything, but Trion may fix it one day!)
+ Updates for spawns (DL/Strange Mound [Enraged Scarab]; IPP/Swirling Tempest; MH/Nytami; EH/Plaguefang)

+ Switched to using /targetexact instead of /target
+ Finished up converting to the new Event system

+ Updated some locations, and added more alternates
+ You should be able to left-click on the tracker to hide/unhide entries once more

+ Fixes to libZoneChange
    - Fix for player changing zones by walking
    - Fix for logging in or /reloadui into a 'special' zone

Fix to libZoneChange

Fix for broken macro change

Updated some locations
Use libZoneChange for zone changes

Fixed a typo

Added minimap/docker button that will toggle display of Tracker windows. Grey - Hidden, Green - Shown

Prevented movement of diamond icon during combat
Reduced CPU load

+ Added French + German translations of mob names
+ RIGHT CLICK on tracker entry will color/uncolor the entry until you change zone (useful for marking youve been to that location)

    Same here, i CANNOT get this to show up at all. Double checked my addon folder & there is nothing wrong with it. No unnecessary sub-folders, etc. Curse installer says it's installed it, it shows up in the addon folder, but will not load (and subsequesntly disappears from the Curse Client list of addons.) I've deleted it, manually downloaded & dragged unzipped folder to Addon Folder & it still does not work. I've installed a few other addons in the past few days with zero problems, so not sure what is up with this one. I'm on a Mac, for what it's worth & never had a issue before.

    Re: Ranger Fahrand 2nd location?

    I found Ranger Fahrand a fair bit away from the objective location (per the interface 255m away) He was on top of the hill at the outside corner of the building at 1973,7388 so perhaps he has a 2nd spawn point.

    First of all: THANKS for this wonderfull addon!

    Here are a few corrections and additions (at least the german and english names are confirmed!)

    One must not search for "Enraged Scarab" because you have to find a "Strange Mound" and attack it. There are three waves of scarabs, and the one we're searching for is in the last wave. So you'll never find this mob like all the others...
    Add the following line to the Droughlands section:

                { n={["EN"]="Strange Mound", ["FR"]="Tertre étrange", ["DE"]="Seltsamer Hügel"}, x=7580, z=6645},

    Iron Pine Peak
    Swirling Tempest's correct german translation is "Sausender Wirbelsturm".
    Besides the wrong translation, this rare has a huge path and spawns in "Howling Caves".
    Replace the original line with the following lines in the Iron Pine Peak Section:

                { n={["EN"]="Swirling Tempest", ["FR"]="Tempête tourbillonnante", ["DE"]="Sausender Wirbelsturm"}, x=3644, z=1560, t="[1]"},
                { n={["EN"]="Swirling Tempest", ["FR"]="Tempête tourbillonnante", ["DE"]="Sausender Wirbelsturm"}, x=3560, z=1605, t="[2]"},
                { n={["EN"]="Swirling Tempest", ["FR"]="Tempête tourbillonnante", ["DE"]="Sausender Wirbelsturm"}, x=3969, z=1722, t="[3]"},
                { n={["EN"]="Swirling Tempest", ["FR"]="Tempête tourbillonnante", ["DE"]="Sausender Wirbelsturm"}, x=3788, z=1251, t="[4]"},
                { n={["EN"]="Swirling Tempest", ["FR"]="Tempête tourbillonnante", ["DE"]="Sausender Wirbelsturm"}, x=3696, z=1265, t="[5]"},

    Eastern Holdings
    As Amagednon already said, the mob "Plaguefang" is missing...

    Add the following line to the Eastern Holdings Section:

                { n={["EN"]="Plaguefang", ["FR"]="Peste-croc", ["DE"]="Seuchenhauer"}, x=7821, z=7376},

    Moonshade Highlands
    As Swirling Tempest, Nytami also has a huge path he's walking. Using the coordinates used in RareTracker, there's only a slim chance to find him.
    Add the following Lines to the Moonshade Highlands to widen the search range:

                { n={["EN"]="Nytami", ["FR"]="Nytami", ["DE"]="Nytami"}, x=6460, z=1349, t="[1]"},
                { n={["EN"]="Nytami", ["FR"]="Nytami", ["DE"]="Nytami"}, x=6556, z=1528, t="[2]"},
                { n={["EN"]="Nytami", ["FR"]="Nytami", ["DE"]="Nytami"}, x=6750, z=1321, t="[3]"},

    the second position I saw on a couple of videos on youtube and the third is the one where I killed him half an hour ago :)

  • #24

    Thanks! Added them into 2.02r7

    Also - thanks for clarification of the german name for Swirling Tempest -- there were 3 different translations in the Rift discoveries file, so I picked one -- the wrong one as it turns out! =/

  • #20

    is there any way u can put a suppressmacro failure in this addon due to it spams my chat box saying can not target or let us have a check box to turn that thing off ?

  • #21

    Im afraid that supressmacrofailures doesnt stop the spamming of 'No target with the name...'

    I wish it did - but it doesnt.

  • #17

    Is there a way to resize the addon?  It's taking up most of my screen... (I don't like scaling down the entire UI)

  • #18

    From the description =P

    If you RIGHT click the MODE: line, it will show a red bar with 2 labels - NAME: and RANGE: - moving the mousewheel up/down over these labels will cause the textsize used in the tracker to change.

  • #19

    Oh.  Well then.  I will go stuff my head into a hole now then.  My bad, I apparently suck at reading.  Apologies for the re-re question!

    Missing Mob

    I noticed that in Eastern holdings Plaguefang is missing.  Possibly one of the easiest to get to/check on since many go into the zone via the nearby portal.  He is at (approximately) 7843,7408

  • #23

    Thanks - added today (2.02r7)

  • #14


    since the last couple of updates - i can no longer left click on a mob name and turn it red to remove it from the available list - i can still right click and turn them green, but this is no use - can you please advise - i have tried to remove and re-install and this has not corrected this problem.

    Many thanks

    For the rare spawn Vengeful Spirit in Silverwood. What you really need to target is Hidden Crypt. Once youve damaged it enough then you get the Spirit. So Hidden Crypt would be the better target to have on spawns list.
  • #9

    what if you dont have a mousewheel?  Also next question can this work like the other rare add on, meaning an alert will pop up and it will auto target?
