About Rarity

Inspired by Bunny Hunter, Rarity tracks how many chances you've had to obtain various rare items throughout the game, and tells you how lucky (or unlucky) you are. It will tell you how likely you are to obtain the item, track how long you've been farming for it, etc. This is primarily useful for farming companion/battle pets and mounts, but it also supports virtually any item including patterns and designs, archaeology projects, etc.

Rarity tracks an exhaustive list of every mount and companion/battle pet in the entire game (at least those that require significant farming to obtain). Items can be filtered by expansion and type. Rarity factors in the size of a typical group when determining probabilities, and can even tell you if you've killed certain world bosses!

Farming a huge collection of bones for the Bone-White Primal Raptor? Rarity will show you your progress.

Features

  • Provides an LDB feed, tooltips, and progress bar, allowing you to track items of your choice

Tracks every kind of item you can imagine:

  • Supports zone-wide drops (like Hyacinth Macaw)
  • Supports containers (like White Polar Bear)
  • Supports two-level loots (like Disgusting Oozeling)
  • Supports archaeology projects (like Scepter of Azj'Aqir)
  • Supports fishing (like Sea Turtle)
  • Supports item usage (like Mojo)
  • Supports items dropped from bosses that require a group to defeat
  • Supports items obtained from holiday boss bags (like Big Love Rocket)
  • Supports items looted from world containers (like Bonkers)
  • Supports collections of things (like Reins of the Bone-White Primal Raptor)
  • Supports some special cases (like Elementium Geode, Mysterious Camel Figurine)
  • Supports things other than pets and mounts (like Skyshard, Primal Egg, recipes, legendary components)
  • Supports bonus coin rolls (like Mogu Rune of Fate)

Other features:

  • Fully user configurable—you can add your own items to track
  • Adds to game tooltips, showing you when something you're looking at is the source of something that Rarity tracks
  • Lets you modify your kill count without having to edit saved variables
  • Shows an "achievement" alert when you obtain the item
  • Uses boss kill statistics whenever possible to keep track of attempts
  • Can report your progress to various channels or in whispers
  • Tracks how long you've been farming this session, day, week, and month
  • Supports tracking two items at the same time
  • Tells you if you've defeated world bosses this week
  • Automatically imports data from Bunny Hunter

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.

- Dandelion Frolicker: Added NPC 71823 to the list of NPCs. Apparently when you leave combat, Scary Sprites have their ID changed from 71826 to 71823, which is the same ID as the Nice Sprites, although the corpses continue to carry the name Scary Sprite. Hopefully this fixes detection for Dandelion Frolicker.

    Is there an easy way to disable tracking of all companion pets? I'd rather not go through all of them untracking them!

    Thanks!

  • #377

    There isn't a way to turn off tracking for a group, but you can collapse the group by clicking on the header in the tooltip. That's what I do for companions. Leaving tracking on won't do any harm and might be helpful (I've been known to accidentally attempt some pets, especially on Timeless Isle, and it's nice to know when it happens).

  • #378

    Cool; that works nicely! Thanks.

    Is there a way to sync the counter if you have reinstalled Rarity?

  • #375

    Rarity will automatically update attempt counts for anything that can be tracked via a statistic. For other items, there's no way for it to know.

  • #370

    i left wow for 3 months and when i came back my rarity tracker bar was gone, i removed it and reinstalled it and the bar is still not showing up but when i loot it says my attempts how do i get the bar back.

  • #371

    Click the icon.

  • #373

    The bar may somehow be offscreen. You'll need to delete and reinstall.

  • #372

    i tried that still nothing will try to completely delete and reinstall it hope that works ty for fast reply

    Custom tracking

    hey I have some issues with creating custom items to track i.e the stuff that is requiered for going to need a bigger bag i.e. Glinting Pile of Stone.

    I choose these settings:

    MoO: Drops from NPC

    Type of Item: Item / Item ID 104263

    NPCs 72809

    Kill Statistic IDs: 72809

    Track this and Announce checked

    1 in 117 Chance nothing else checked.

    So if I loot one of these Cliffdwellers it doesn't count towards the attempts. However sometimes out of nowhere one attempt gets added to all my custom items that I created.

    I'm not sure where the error is. I guess if the error is on my part it has something to do with the kill statistic but I compared it to other items that come by default and kill statistic is empty there. however it doesn't allow me to leave it empty. can you help me with this one?

  • #364

    Remove the Statistic ID. That's only used when WoW tracks a statistic, usually for boss kills in modern raid zones. That will probably fix your problem, but if it doesn't, triple check your NPC ID to make sure it's correct.

  • #369

    ahh that fixed it thank you!

  • #368

    Hrm, that's a bug. I'll have to issue a new build for that, but the code is currently targeting Warlords of Draenor and I don't want to release it just yet. If it's not too much trouble, the best approach is probably to delete the entire item and recreate it. Then just make sure you don't put anything in the Statistic ID field.

  • #367

    It says: " You must enter at least one Statistic ID."

    You should be able to just delete the statistic ID in the GUI, then click Okay.
