About Rarity

Rarity tracks how many times you've tried to obtain various rare items like mounts, battle pets, and toys. It will tell you how likely you are to obtain the item, track how long you've been farming for it, and tell you how lucky you've been so far. Although it's mostly used for mounts, battle pets, and toys, it supports pretty much any item, including profession patterns, archaeology projects, and more.

Out of the box, Rarity includes support for every single mount, battle pet, and toy in the game which require some time to farm. It also includes support for some mount-related items like Skyshard, Primal Egg, and Giant Dinosaur Bone. It'll even notice if you mouseover a Mysterious Camel Figurine, plus lots of other stuff. Rarity factors in the size of a typical group when determining probabilities, and can also tell you if you've killed various bosses this week (or day). Holiday just started, and you didn't notice? Rarity will give you a helpful reminder to run those holiday dungeons or daily quests if you still need an item from them.

If Rarity doesn't track something you want to track, you can add it yourself! Just about everything is user configurable.

Curious what math is going on behind the scenes? The author of Bunny Hunter created the original algorithms. He wrote an article about it here. Your chance to obtain an item doesn't increase as you farm it; Rarity is just telling you how lucky you've been so far. It can be remarkably cathartic to see a progress bar move up as you spend hours upon hours trying for that Disgusting Oozeling.

Main features

  • Rarity is primarily an LDB feed with a large tooltip. It can function as either a mini-map icon (you have to turn this on in the options), or as a standard LDB feed (use a display like Fortress, Button Bin, Titan Panel, or Chocolate Bar).
  • Provides a progress bar, which you can toggle by clicking the icon or feed label.
  • Adds info to NPC and item tooltips, showing you if it drops or contains something that Rarity tracks. Rare mobs with a guaranteed drop show which item they drop and if you've defeated them yet.
  • Includes full source info, telling you how to obtain everything Rarity tracks.

Other features

  • Adds an Auto Refresh checkbox to the Group Finder search feature
  • Can automatically add waypoints to TomTom for certain items
  • Uses statistics whenever possible to keep track of attempts
  • Breaks your farming down by session, day, week, and month
  • Looks at your instance locks to see if you've defeated various bosses recently
  • Reminds you if you need to farm a holiday dungeon or daily quest, and hides holiday items that aren't available right now
  • Supports bonus coin rolls
  • Automatically screenshots when you obtain an item
  • Keeps track of rare achievements like Frostbitten and Glorious
  • You can add your own items to track
  • Lets you modify your attempt count without having to edit saved variables
  • Automatically imports data from Bunny Hunter if you're switching

   A /trunk/Libs/LibBars-1.0/lib.xml

- Updated LibBars-1.0 in this package with a bug fix for WoW 7.x. GetItemInfo() returns texture IDs instead of image paths now. LibBars:SetIcon should no longer detect an ID and try to route it through GetSpellInfo to obtain the filename, as that is no longer necessary and does not work for item textures. Note to no-libs users: Rarity now contains a custom copy of LibBars-1.0 which manifests itself as r24 in order to force an upgrade in case you have the library installed externally. The version on WowAce does not work properly in WoW 7.0.
