RaresTip  Updated this week!

Version: r05
by: Nathanyel [More]

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 drop their items with a 100% chance on the first kill, afterwards they are normal enemies. RaresTip will show when you already have defeated a rare.
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

To find Draenor's rare NPCs and objects, I recommend HandyNotes_DraenorTreasures

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.

Yep, some functions changed and actually take less varied parameters now. edit but your issue is actually something different, a semi-rare occurrence of the parameter being nil. I noticed that, too, and it's already fixed in my dev version
I'm already in the process of rewriting the addon for WoD, I'm just having trouble finding time, still in the aftermath of moving to a new apartment.

Suggestion to add:
Option to just show info with a modifier key like ctrl or alt key or option to bind a key so it wont show all the time you have a mouseover your target since i use mouseovertarget macro for my spells

Adding support to this.

Downloaded this addon to drop into Duffed and it auto resized Duffed's normally small tooltips to outrageously large even when there was nothing being displayed for RaresTip. This just shouldn't happen.



Changed my NPC tooltips to that.
