RareAlert  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 1.4
by: Haleth [More]

This simple addon shows a raid warning and plays the raid warning sound when a rare creature or treasure appears on your minimap. This means you can keep your eyes on the game world and only look at the minimap when you hear the sound.

1.4

Disabled alerts while in garrison to avoid spam from invasions.
Bumped ToC for patch 6.0.

1.3

Removed code for detecting Kukuru's Treasure Cache because it's not needed anymore.

1.2.1

Add ruRU support for Kukuru's Treasure Cache filtering.

1.2

Attempt to use an actually working method to detect Kukuru's Treasure Cache. English locale only, for now.

1.1

Kukuru's Treasure Cache on the Timeless Isle should now no longer trigger the alert.

1.0

You might want to change "RaidWarning.wav" to "RaidWarning.ogg".

I was curious why your addon wasn't playing the soundfile as of late.
I searched a little and found this thread on the WoW forums..

After i made the change, the addon worked again

It seems the mine is a different map area id. Update the blacklist to the following

Code:
local blacklist = {
	971, -- Alliance garrison
	947, -- Lunarfall Excavation
	976, -- Horde garrison
}
I don't know the map area id for the horde mine. If you get an alert when you shouldn't you can check your current map area id by running the following in chat

Code:
/run RaidNotice_AddMessage(RaidWarningFrame, GetCurrentMapAreaID(), ChatTypeInfo["RAID_WARNING"])

It is possible that the level 1 and 2 alliance mines also have a different map area id

6.1 update

The following seems to work for 6.1. I still get an alert when I first hearth into the garrison.
Replace the contents of core.lua with the following

Code:
local blacklist = {
	971, -- Alliance garrison
	976, -- Horde garrison
}

local f = CreateFrame("Frame")
f:RegisterEvent("VIGNETTE_ADDED")
f:SetScript("OnEvent", function()

	if (tContains(blacklist, GetCurrentMapAreaID())) then return end
	PlaySound("RaidWarning", "master"); 
	RaidNotice_AddMessage(RaidWarningFrame, "Rare spotted!", ChatTypeInfo["RAID_WARNING"])
end)

Any chance we can get an update on this? Other than going off in the garrison, it's perfect!

Weird, I thought I removed that. I'll fix it. You can delete it, no problem.

Unfortunately it also seems to spam you during Garrison invasions, so I'll have a look at perhaps disabling it during those (or just inside Garrisons altogether).

Seems to be working just fine! It's also pointing me to my garrison cache every time it's up.

It appears to work for every rare in Pandaria, though I haven't been flying around in the classic world so I'm not sure if it goes for other rares as well.

It'd be great if the ID returned by the function was consistent, so we have blacklist/whitelist features. Names actually being returned properly would be cool too.

Thanks for the reply, Haleth

I hope they fix those bugs. What irks me from the system used by, for example, NPC Scan is that it depends on managing the cache. I know that system lets you search for many more things than just "rares", but anyway...

This new feature of showing rares on the minimap is really cool and I hope they extend it to every rare in the game (if it isn't already like that, of course!).

Names aren't possible at the moment, sadly. Judging by the Blizzard code it -should- work, but there appear to be a few bugs.

Smile Names

Is it possible to announce the name of the rare detected?
