This addon was inspired by and uses code derived from SymbiosisTip by Wildbreath.
Mists of Pandaria added several rare enemies that drop unique items, and 5.4's Timeless Isle continued that with countless more. Warlords of Draenor... pulled the lever to max and broke it.
This addon is intended to help you remember which NPC drops which unique item. As you mouse over an NPC, an additional tooltip for the item is shown. Timeless Isle rares often have secondary drops as well, shown in a shortened secondary tooltip.
By default, tooltips fade after being shown, unless the item is still required for an achievement. Holding Shift keeps them shown. Options are on the way! (I just suck at XML)
Now with full Draenor data!
Draenor rares below level 100 drop their items with a 100% chance on the first kill, afterwards they are normal enemies.
Rares at level 100 usually have a lower chance to drop their unique item, but can be killed once per day.
RaresTip will show when you already have defeated a rare (today)
Also still in: Pandaria rares, including Zandalari Warbringers (to help identify which mount they can drop) and some other NPCs, mostly from Pandaria, that drop interesting items.
I'm very open to suggestions what else could be added
r10: 6.2.2 new Rares, Hallow's End Garrison Rare, added some missing Rares and info, minor adjustments to the logic (non-versioned change to r10: removed the warning about looting Arachnis, was hotfixed)
r09: fix for tooltips of minimap icons created by a Treasure Map
r08: the western Strongpoint summons the Houndmaster, not Krag'goth
r07: 6.2 & Tanaan
r06: 6.1 toc bump
r05: Talador, Spires of Arak, Nagrand. Sorry it took so long. Significant code improvements, though object ("secret") tooltips are still wonky.
r04: Frostfire Ridge, Shadowmoon Valley, Gorgrond rares. More later. Vignette encounter support.
r03: Patch 6.0 compatibility, secondary tooltips for secondary drops, auto-fade
r02: removed functionality to equalize the widths of unit tooltip and RaresTip frame. Sorry for that. Didn't work when I tried it on my end, so I forgot about that code, and people disliked it.
r01: initial version. Still has the tooltip "bug" mentioned above, if you like it. May or may not actually work.
