    Item Rarity Index List

    Perhaps I'm a little selfish on this one, but I would LOVE to see a list, updated maybe once a week, showing the rarest items from top to bottom. We've been digging around WoWhead for months and months, speculating on item/recipe rarity and building snatch lists based on our personal research. But we aren't perfect. Most snatch lists are incomplete and/or assume wrong "rarity" for several items.

    If The Undermine Journal were to provide an item rarity index (ie: seen count in the past week/month across all servers), we'd have the end-all solution to building a snatch list. Hell, we'd probably end up doubling the size of our current list.

    Thoughts?

    I love TUJ and I don't mean to sound ungrateful, but this would much more useful than the current "Hot Items" list and would be super cool. I think rarest across servers would be nice, but there should also be rarest per server and per AH as well.

    Absolutely - plus a mass notification option right next to it. Now, that's selfish!

    Per server and per AH would take a LONG time to become relevant. Worldwide is probably the only real representation of rarity.

    Everyone is going to have lowbie toons on every server soon for snatching cheap rare patterns if this keeps up lol.

    That thought did cross my mind, but I wasn't sure what I'd do with the gold at that point.

    Just ran a quick query to find items w/the lowest current availability across all US realms.

    I doubt you're very interested in purchasing:
    Redeemed Soul Moccasins
    Dust Bowl
    Abyssal Plate Sabatons
    Dertrok's Fourth Wand
    Cloak of Rot
    Prospector's Cuffs
    Marsh Lichen
    Damaged Naga Hide
    Riverside Staff

    etc etc.

    Let me guess, you want:
    Pattern: Heavy Scorpid Gauntlets
    Pattern: Brightcloth Robe
    Recipe: Major Healing Potion
    Recipe: Thistle Tea
    Plans: Dawn's Edge
    Pattern: Cindercloth Pants
    Pattern: Living Breastplate

    Need better criteria. There's lots of rare crap out there that nobody wants.

    Interesting results. Recipes would be a good start, I guess. I know that Brightcloth and Cindercloth recipes don't drop anymore, they're trained now and quite worthless. I'd still be happy with a giant, unformatted list of items though.
