RareNerd Released

I am happy to announce the first initial release of RareNerd, an addon that will assist you with finding all the rares in Rift. This includes all of the new rares added with Storm Legion and full support for them. This is an updated and modified version of RareDar.

You can download the addon here, or at RiftUI or Curse.


  • Drag and drop the contents of the folder into your Rift/Interface/Addons folder; overwrite all files when upgrading. The default location for this is in your Documents folder.
