BloodyRare  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.6

Introduction
This addon is intended for those who want to farm the Bloody Rare/Medium Rare/Northern Exposure/Frostbitten achievements by flying around and smashing a target macro. After I did a complete round through outlands while triggering the //wrong// one, my northrend-macro, i decided to create this addon.

This addon creates and updates a macro you can use for targetting rare mobs in outland and northrend. Because of the 255 character limit they just don't fit into one macro. It includes all mobs from the achievements and the Time-Lost proto and you will always have the mobs of your current zone in this one macro.

Usage
To active the addon just type '/bloodyrare on' or '/bloody on' and then bind the automatically created macro (found under '/macro') to any actionbar button.
To turn it off type '/bloody off'. You can also right click the macrobutton to toggle its active/inactive state.
This state is saved on a per-character basis, to prevent chat spaming while you are leveling up your lower characters.

If you trigger the created macro in a zone without rares ('empty zone') a message informs you that there are no rares and the macro will be updated if you change to a zone containing those. This message can be suppressed by '/bloody hideempty'.

Notes
I'm also adding special spawns, that are not directly related to the exploration achievements. For example Lil Timmy in Stormwind and Dalaran Spellscribe in Silverpine, because both carry rare pets with them. By now the addon also contains some tamable rare mobs and the pet-dropping rare raptors. If you have further ideas feel free to tell me.

Localized for enUS, deDE, frFR, ruRU and zhTW. If you can offer help to add more languages feel free to comment or contact me.
You may encounter zone name mismatches, i only checked deDE 100% while I can not verify asian translations at all . Please report immediatly if you enter a zone containing rares but the addon doesn't report them.

Thanks for translations!

I'm going to guess this addon has been abandoned.

I'd like to see the option to turn off the chat spam every time you switch zones, as well as the ability to turn on/off certain mobs that have already been killed so you don't get all excited when it alerts on a find that you already have down.

I first didn't find it in wowhead but now I got it in some other databases, I will add it in the next update. I'm waiting for some russian translation before I upload it. I plan it for tomorrow.
