SilverDragon  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v90002.15.1
by: Kemayo [More]

Do you want the Classic version? It's here.

SilverDragon tracks rares. It will try everything possible to notice them and tell you about them.

## How does it search?

### Vignettes

Those little skull icons you see on the minimap. If one of them is a rare SilverDragon knows about, it'll yell at you.

### Targets

If you mouse over or target a rare mob, SilverDragon will notice it.

This is the also how SilverDragon learns about *new* rares in the wild. After you first mouse over or target one, it'll remember it, and start watching for it in the cache in the future.

### Nameplates

If you have enemy nameplates turned on, SilverDragon will keep an eye on them to look for the names of known rares. This is the least exact method, because nameplates don't expose the underlying mob's id, so we have to rely on a plain name comparison.

Addons that modify nameplates may interfere with this.

### Macro

SilverDragon can also create a macro to target any rares that are known in the current zone. You can stick this on your actionbars as a button to spam while chasing after a rare. This is sort of a last resort.

## How will I know when a rare is seen?

### Frame

When a rare appears, SilverDragon will pop up a frame that you can click on to target it.

Warning: If you're in combat, secure action restrictions mean that it won't show up until combat finishes.

### Sounds

You can choose from assorted sounds to play when a rare is seen. The sound can loop for a while, to make sure you don't miss it.

There's special settings for rares that drop mounts and world boss rares which you might want to call up a group for. If you're sitting mostly-AFK on a Time-Lost Proto Drake spawn, you probably want the sound that plays to be utterly ridiculous and go on for a good long while, to make *sure* you don't miss that sucker.

### Messages

A notice can be sent to a number of places:

* your scrolling combat text
* your chat frame
* a channel in your chat frame (announcing it to your party, for instance)
* a popup window
* etc

## Other useful things?

### Custom mobs

In SilverDragon's options you'll find a "Mobs" section. In the "Always" section, you can add any mob you want to be scanned for. All you need to know is the mob id.

So, let's say you wanted to keep an eye out for Lil Timmy in Stormwind, to buy the kitten he sells. You would...

1. Go to his [wowhead page](http://www.wowhead.com/npc=8666/lil-timmy).
1. Grab his id from the URL. It's `8666`.
1. Enter `8666` into the "add" field, and click "okay".
1. Play with your new kitten.

### Ignoring mobs

If there's some mob you don't want to hear about for whatever reason, just go to the "Ignore" section of the options. Again, enter the mob's id into the "add" box, then click okay. Bam! You will never again be told that Vern is up.

(Actually, Vern is ignored by default. But you get the idea.)

### Syncs

SilverDragon will talk to itself. It can communicate with other copies of itself run by people in your party / guild, and tell you when they see a rare mob. (If there's a group of you camping all the Time-Lost Proto Drake spawns, say...)

You can turn this off completely, if you want to be private about it.

### Tooltips

Some rares are part of an achievement. When you mouse over a rare mob, SilverDragon will add to the tooltip whether you've already killed it, so you know whether you need to rush for it.

### Broker

SilverDragon includes a Broker plugin. It'll attach itself to your minimap, or a Broker container you have installed, and show you a list of the mobs it knows about in the current zone.

## Other addons you may find useful

* [ServerRestartSound](http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/serverrestartsound): plays a sound when the server's about to restart. If you're AFK-camping for a rare spawn, you probably want to know about this.
* [HandyNotes](http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/handynotes): integrates with SilverDragon to show icons on zone maps where a rare has been seen.
* [_NPCScan.Overlay](http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/npcscan-overlay): shows rare mob paths for some rares, and can be told to pop up if SilverDragon sees something.
* [ChocolateBar](http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/chocolatebar): a broker display. SilverDragon's minimap icon will show up on it (or any other addon like it) instead of cluttering up your minimap, if you have it installed.

## Why should I use this instead of _NPCScan?

_NPCScan is all about scanning the cache. If a mob winds up already in your cache, it'll do nothing at all to help you. SilverDragon tries to fall back on more things, to give you the best chance of finding rares.

If you want to run across rares while leveling, SilverDragon helps with that. _NPCScan is solely a max-level tool.

Ultimately it's a matter of personal preference. :-P

## What's new with version 3?

Most of the addon has been rewritten so that its internals are entirely based on mob ids and zone ids, neither of which were available to the client back when 2.0 was written back in early 2009. This was also a great opportunity to stop having to lug so much localization code around.

## Changed in v90002.15.1

* The broker tooltip "regular loot" icon will now show a checkmark if you have all the quests/appearances your character can get from that loot
* Fix some mounts incorrectly showing as collected
* Fix Tomb Burster questid

Is it possible to show ONLY the map icons for NPCs with mounts and toys? I can't seem to figure it out.

Adding NON RARE mobs??

----[SOLVED]----

Hi! I love this addon, great work!
I use this Add-On for Classic WoW.
I am curious if it is possible to track NON-RARE mobs?
Is it possible to add a regular elite/non elite mob to the tracking system?

----[SOLVED]----

****EDIT****
I discovered the option to enable Mob ID, when I found the ID of the mobs I wanted to track, I added it using the ID and not the name, and it worked flawlessly.

SilverDragon sound

Greetings! I just added SilverDragon to my WoW account, and am really excited about it! Normally I do not use ANY sound when playing. What sound must I enable for SilverDragon to notify me of a rare sighting?

minimap button list adjustment?

Kemayo,

Using Silver dragon version 4.0.13 from Agust 19,2018

So I went into the interface, then mobs, then the warlords tab.

I unclicked every mob in that list except
Terrofist
Deathtalon
Vengence
Doomroller

but when I mouse over the minimap button I still get a list longer then my screen
that I can not scroll the list or etc, so I can not see the bottom one(s) such as terrofist and vengence

How do I get that list to only show the ones I have checked,or to be able to scroll done the list to see the whole list ( prefer to show only the ones I have checked)?

Thank you

Updating from a pre-8.0 version last night reset several of not all of the addon's options, was that intended?
(Most importantly, the sound settings, BADUMMTATUMMTUMM)

version number?

I downloaded this today, and the filename (at least) has the same number as the version I already have - 3.0.10. What am I doing wrong?

Minimap character is hiding.

I love the addon for finding mobs, but... My character icon, in the center of the minimap, is covered with a dragon image, and makes it impossible to see if I'm facing north or south.

Is there an option to hide this, or some other way to disable it?

I'm not talking about the minimap button, on the side of the frame that I find useful. But the character icon in the middle of the minimap frame.

Had to hunt around for it. Go to Broker section, and you will see it as an option.

Just my opinion, but every addon should have a general section where HIDE MINIMAP ICON is one of the basics tickboxes. It's different in almost every addon... aka, annoying.

But I'm thankful for the addon in general.
