About Rarity

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.

- 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.

    Nope, unfortunately. Rarity uses NPC IDs rather than names (because otherwise I'd have to localize all the NPC names into every language). I'd recommend using Collectinator (available on Curse) or look the item up on WowHead. Rarity isn't intended to give you all the background on HOW to farm an item, just help you track THAT you farmed it and for how long. :)

    Hey this addon seems to bug the Archaeology interface, when Rarity is enabled whenever I solve a project (eg. Night Elf) it switches to a different project page (Vrykul) once it's completed. It's a bit annoying because I need to keep switching screens to see what my next actual project is.

    I disabled the addon and it fixed. Enabled it again and it started doing it again. So i'm sure it's to do with Rarity. and it's the latest addon I downloaded too.
    Any Idea if it's fixable? I tried solving the Vrykul project it keeps switching to but it still does it. And tested it on an alt as well (it switches to Troll page for that toon).

  • #65

    This is a known issue and I don't know of a fix at this time. My recommendation is to use the Archy add-on for your archaeology. It does not have the same problem as the default UI.

  • #62

    your addon realy freaked me out... baught a pet off the auctionhouse and it poped up...also when i clicked it all my achievements said for the alliance

  • #66

    Working as intended. I have no idea what you mean by your second statement.

  • #229

    Sorry for not following up and for not bieng clear.

    the second statement was. when i opened my achievement window everysingle achievement was named.

    For The Alliance  in every single achievement spot when i was horde. This would happen when i clicked on the pop up achieve, it opened up my achievements window and every achievement said for the alliance. regardless of if I was on alliance or horde. I have no idea if it still does this, I just thought I would follow up on this.

    sorry about the extreamly late reply.

     

    The first part was just that it startled me when I purchased a pet of the auction house and it went off.

    I will get back to you if I win this pet of the Black Market Auction house and am able to test it.

    Not sure if it's been mentioned, but Rarity seems to track Blazing Drake from deathwing kills, which include Raid Finder difficulty. It doesn't drop from Raid finder...

    I found this after the fact, because last mount I tried for was Fiery Warhorse, then I did raidfinder, and it shows last mount tracked as blazing drake. I can't change count because it auto updates to overall kills.

  • #67

    Known issue, can't be fixed. Blizzard counts LFR mode as the same as normal mode.

  • #76

    No, Rarity knows the difference between heroic and normal. Blizzard made the mistake of lumping LFR with Normal. Heroic is still separate. Hopefully they split into 3 proper difficulties in the next tier.

  • #72

    Would this also mean that the addon has no way to distinguish between normal and heroic dungeon difficulty for tracking e.g. Battered Hilt drops?

    Swift White Hawkstrider

    Rarity have stopped counting my attempts on getting the  Swift White Hawkstrider, I'm not sure if it was after an update of the addon or after gettig the companion - but it doesn't count.

    Any suggesting of how to trace the error ?

    It seems pretty random, sometime it counts other times not

    Can it be because i'm killing him to fast and not start floating around in the air +

    Hmmmm.... I haven't replied yet because I'm not sure what the problem could be, especially if it sometimes works. It's supposed to track your Statistic (under your Achievements window) for that kill, NOT your looting of the boss. So it could be that Blizzard has a latency or bug with statistics?

    Unfortunately, I have nearly every rare in the game at this point (and no alts), so I can't reproduce the issue. I will look at the code again, however.

    Edit: I don't see a problem with the code, so the best solution would be to remove the statistic from that item. Blizzard must have a bug with it. That means that historical kills of KT would not be counted if you weren't running Rarity.

    hey guess what i download thing and thourt i try to get Toxic Wasteling and.... got it on my first go in my first bag =)

  • #56

    Hi, I've noticed that the Strand Crawler pet from the fishing dailies hasn't been included in this addon. I've added it through the Custome tab as:

    Obtained by using an item or opening a container / Companion

    Iteam ID: 44983, Spell ID: 62561

    Items to Use: 67414,46007

    Chance: 100

    Is the above correct?

     
  • #58

    That's correct! But I'm adding it to the defaults anyway. :) Thanks for the suggestion!
