Sorry for the inactivity on this addon, i took a break from the game for several months, i plan on coming back for Warlords. i also plan on adding the lower levels soon, and see about the 6.0 issue it stopping to work. Thanks, Colonyl3

Shades the area of the Rare Spawns, in Outlands, Northrend, Cataclysm, and Pandaria zones.


/rso [on/off/toggle]

This addon is best used in conjunction with, i prefer this addon for scanning rares, cause you can set it to rescan every few minutes for rares with out needing to log and clear the cache folder. Works awesome on timeless isle, where rare respawn anywhere from 20 to an hour.

Known issue with Carbonite and ElvUI conflicting, will work on fixing it, if anyone might know a way, please send me a message, on the website or ingame @ Rapsheet (Malfurion-Horde)

    it would be great if you could add a gear guide by class.  So hunters kill these rares, Warriors kill these...

  • #300

    It's a great addon, but it's missing quite a few rare spawns. I've noticed it's mainly in Vale of Eternal Blossoms, so if this could be updated, that'd be great! Thanks!

  • #299

    I really want 1-60 rares :D would be awesome (cause i have a quest to kill all rares in azeroth .-.)


  • #301

    Me to

  • #304

    Yes, please add data for 60 and below, please.

  • #298

    Would really like the overlay to apply to the minimap as well. 

  • #297

    as far as the conflicts with carbonite, have you considered discussing with its authors about possible solutions? they might have some valuable insight.

  • #296

    Awsome addon, :) i have a request too, can you add Zandalari Warscouts and Zandalari Warbringers ?

  • #293


    great Addon! One small request, could you add the Mysterious Camel Figurine Spots in Uldum by any Chance, I would greatly appreciate that!

    Keep it up


  • #294

    Yeah i can add camel spawn points

  • #295

    Allstar! <3

  • #291

    Can you please make the text on Timeless Isle White so the names don't conflict wth the names of areas on the Isle. Other then that great work....

  • #292

    Yeah i wanted to do white text, but the way it currently setup it comes out faded unless i do multiple layer options. im still kinda new to lua programing. im taking time right now to learn lua and python scripting. hopefully can do a major overhaul and make the addon lighter weight and nicer looking with more features

  • #289

    i love it :)

    1 q: i use ElvUI w Enhanced tools... RSO sits in the middle of the screen :/ how can i move it away?


  • #290

    Hello, yeah im not surprised that there might be a problem, most UI addons like ElvUI and Carbonite, that take over the mapping will have a conflict with this addon. i will be looking into it, im hoping to team up will vall and the current manager/author of NPCScan.Overlay, Torhal. and help get that one updated and i know that one works fine with ElvUI and Carbonite. But for now this the only one to have the isle of thunder and timeless ilse in colored overlays
