ESN Rare  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 0.9.5
by: EnSabahNur [More]
About ESN_Rare:
=========================
ESN_Rare scans the combat log, nameplates, your target, the creature cache and your mouseover target for rare mobs. When it finds a rare mob in your vicinity it will alert you with a message or sound notification and create a Macro (Out of Combat) to target the Rare Mob.
The macro will be called "RARE" and can be found in the General Macros tab. It will target the last found rare Mob and will make it easier to find it in a huge group of mobs.
It supports HandyNotes for Mapnotes and should work well on German and English Clients.


Configuring ESN_Rare:
=========================
The addon settings can be changed in the Interface options and you can open them with the chat command /rare.
To see a list of all rare mobs in the cache use: /rare cache


The Cache:
=========================
ESN_Rare checks your creature cache for rare mobs. There is one catch to this technique however: Once a mob is “found”,ESN_Rare won't be able to find it again until your cache is cleared. If you find a rare mob's corpse you would have to clear your cache before ESN_Rare would find it again.

CLEARING THE CACHE
To clear your cache, follow these steps:
1. Exit World of Warcraft.
2. Delete the “Cache” sub-directory inside your World of Warcraft folder.
Example: “C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\Cache”

WoW will recreate your Cache folder after you log in again.

LIMITATIONS
The only problem for ESN_Rare are tamable beasts. Even when you run across the tamed version, ESN_Rare gets tricked and displays a found alert. In order to prevent those false positives you can disable the "scan for tameables" if you want.


Credits:
=========================
This addon was inspired by SilverDragon from Kemayo and NPCScan from Saiket. Some parts of the code were borrowed from SilverDragon.

I installed this and had the good fortune of finding the Zul'Drak Sentinel not too long after. During the entire battle, the notification sound was spamming, the chat log was being spammed, as was the on-screen message. I am hoping that the options menu will address these as it did get a bit annoying/confusing during the fight. After the Sentinel was killed, the notifications continued for a bit longer and ended when I flew away on my mount.

The only other thing I noticed, in reference to Sparanoid's "English Version?" comment is that during the battle, the name of "Zul'Drak Sentinel" was ended by what I suppose is the word "Elemental" in German. When the Sentinel died, "Elemental" was displayed in English.

This is a nifty addon.
