NPCScan  Updated this week!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 6.0.2.2
by: Torhal [More]
_NPCScan tracks seldom-seen rare mobs by proximity alone, making the old “/targetexact …” macros obsolete. It has the same range as those targeting macros, but you won't have to mash any buttons. Just go about your business and let _NPCScan alert you when it finds something.

Details

The Cache

This addon doesn't use nameplates or mouseover units to find rares. Instead, it checks your creature cache for the moment a rare mob is found. There is one catch to this technique however: Once a mob is “found”, _NPCScan won't be able to find it again until your cache is cleared. If you find a rare mob's corpse—Dirkee for example—you would have to clear your cache before _NPCScan would find Dirkee again. Thankfully, clearing your cache is a safe and simple matter.

Clearing Your Cache

To clear your cache, follow these straightforward steps:
  1. Exit World of Warcraft.
  2. Delete the “Cache” sub-directory inside your World of Warcraft folder. For example on a standard Windows XP installation, you would delete the folder “C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\Cache”.
    • Advanced users can delete “C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\Cache\WDB\enUS\creaturecache.wdb” specifically to improve log-in times, where enUS is your language code.

      Note: Windows Vista and Windows 7 users see this info if your cache isn't in the location above.
That's it. Log in after you've done that and you'd be able to find Dirkee a second time. It's completely safe because WoW will recreate your Cache folder after you log in again.

Cache Warning

If a rare mob is already cached when you log in, _NPCScan will print a warning message with the names of those mobs. If you see this message but still want to find the listed NPCs again, it's time to clear your cache by following the above procedure. Otherwise, you can quit searching for those mobs using the Search options window detailed below. You can suppress this log-in message using the main options pane, as well.


“Found” Alert

When a rare mob is found, _NPCScan alerts you by playing a loud and distinctive sound, making your screen pulse red, and displaying an animated targeting button. To get a feel for what this alert looks and sounds like, try the “Test Found Alert” button in the addon's main Interface Options panel. (See the Options section below.)

Targeting Button

When clicked, the targeting button tries to target the most-recently-found mob. You can also bind a key to hit this button. If the default button position isn't to your liking, you can move it while holding your <CTRL> key.

Note: The button cannot be shown during combat. In the unlikely case that you do find a rare while fighting, the button will appear after you leave combat. You will still hear the alert however, and the name of the mob will appear in your chat log.


Options

_NPCScan's main options window can be accessed from the Interface Options menu. This panel includes a “Test Found Alert” button, various ways to customize the alert sound, and an option to suppress cache warning messages on log-in.

New sounds can be added to the alert sound dropdown menu by installing SharedMedia-type addons.

Search List

The list of mobs that _NPCScan searches for can be modified easily through the Interface Options panel, however it comes pre-configured with most rare Outlands and Northrend mobs. To access the mob list, type “/npcscan”.

Grayed out NPCs in a list aren't being searched for, either because they're cached or not needed for their achievement.
  • The first tab available lists Custom NPCs that you can enter or remove manually. NPCs that are already cached show a red “X” in the first column. You can add or remove Custom NPCs with the [+] and [-] buttons at the bottom right.
  • All other tabs control achievements like Bloody Rare and Frostbitten. These tabs show an additional column on the right with green check marks for completed achievement mobs. You may enable or disable tracking each achievement with its tab's checkbox.
The “Search for completed Achievement NPCs” checkbox at the top left of the pane allows you to keep looking for mobs you no longer need for achievements.


Finding NPC IDs

A mob's NPC ID is its unique identification number, and it can be found on sites like WowHead or WowDB. For example, search for the mob “Dirkee” on WowHead and go to the mob's page. That page's URL will look like “http://www.wowhead.com/?npc=32500”; 32500 is Dirkee's NPC ID.

Limitations

The only problem mobs for _NPCScan are tamable beasts. Even when you run across the tamed version, _NPCScan gets tricked into thinking that mob is nearby. In order to prevent those false positives, _NPCScan only shows alerts for tamable mobs in their original zones. That is, if you spot Loque'nahak in Dalaran instead of Sholazar Basin where it usually patrols, _NPCScan would ignore it. When one of these tamable mob false-alarms happens, you'll see a message in your chat window explaining why it got ignored.

Since this makes tamable mobs are so difficult to track, I suggest you fly to the tamable mob's zone first, clear your cache, and then search for it. Any time you pass through a populated area like Dalaran, you risk filling your cache with popular rare pets.

Wait, it is possible to have the settings save for all chars? Please more info!

If you want to use my list below, which also includes all rares that come with the addon, just navigate to your char in the WTF directory and replace the contents of your _npcscan.lua file. Adding one by one would be kinda tedious

It is a snap of SavedVariables for addon.
You may only copy-paste blocks from NPCs and NPCWorldIDs.
Watch where you copy-pasting them, though.
If you've applied a fix to have global rares list, you'll want the SV file under account name, not under each character name.

Also, respawn timers seem to have been shortened since cata on some or all rares.

As for old world rares I can attach my list of the rare spawns I've entered so far. It doesnt include (by far) all of them, but quite some.

I know that the rare raptors do not drop their respective pets anymore, but that their nests do... couldn't they have been left on there, so people at least can know where to look for them?

Also, are there any plans to add old world rare elites? Been seeing a lot more since Cata came out (seems like they added more, whether they did or not, I don't know), and they're sometimes fun to kill anyway.

If your husband is playing a hunter and you aren't, that would explain things. By default, only hunters get to track Sambas and Karoma in Twilight Highlands since they're only there to be tamed as pets.

Edit: If you want to track them for him, hold shift while you reset your settings and you'll get all of the hunter defaults too.

You have to be within about 100 yards of the rare to find it. It's the same as targeting range, and for some mobs it's much larger than 100 yards. If you're using _NPCScan.Overlay too, your minimap should show a range ring around the center arrow showing the typical detection radius.

Yep, that link just explained where the cache was for some Windows 7 machines. Generally though, the instructions in the description should still work.

Did you ever fix this problem? I have the same problem. It's very annoying having to re-enter Aeonaxx and other rares every time I log in.
I was never able to reproduce that problem, and just assumed it was caused by closing the game with either ALT+F4 or the close button in the top corner of the game window. If you don't close the game with either "Log Out" or "Exit Game" (like if the game crashes completely), no settings will save since you logged in.

If that doesn't explain it and you always log out or quit through the in-game menu, it might be a rare addon conflict. In this case, could you please paste a list of the mods you're using (or a screenshot of what's in your addon folder)?

Are they enabled in your "/npcscan" settings? Please make sure the checkbox on the Frostbitten tab is enabled. Like I replied earlier, there was a bug in an older version that may have removed all your settings, turning all scans off. If your settings aren't cleared though, does the command "/npcscan cache" print any mob names you were trying to find? If so, clearing your cache may not have worked; Just make sure to completely close WoW before deleting it next time.
