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.

Yeah that ID is just somewhat funny. Is your change that you check for the name now instead?

psiko74: You'd have to change the path of the sound file in the line 'PlaySoundFile' in the source code.

LgEnder: I'm working on a fix for this. It's still not entirely clear how the new API works but apparently the ID depends on the server and on weekly resets as well. I'll be checking for the NPC name instead (which I probably also need to translate for different locales).

With 1.1 I still seem to be getting the Rare alert for Kukuru's Treasure Cache.

Can the sound it makes when a rare is spotted be changed to something more noticeable?

Thanks for the comments!

lorgi: This -should- be possible, but currently there seems to be a bug (or undocumented intended behaviour) in the Blizzard code that prevents this from working.

However, I have managed to filter out Kukuru's Treasure Cache, so you should no longer get an alert for that

Very handy, with that in mind tho; would it be a huge undertaking to add what rare thing has been spotted to the message? Such as "Rare spotted! <name of rare mob>" or something instead of just seeing the rare spotted text.

This is a really handy addon. I've found chests and treasures that I didn't even know existed, plus I don't have to miss out on that rare that's just around a corner when I'm busy with something else.

Thx.

Apparently, this works for other mobs in Pandaria too! Updated the description.
