As far as I know there is only one, and it only works for the ones on the Timeless Isle. ;(

I personally just cannot picture how something like this would work. A lot of rares have timers that vary, or they share their timers with several other rares. How does it know when a rare has been killed/tamed if you weren't online/in that zone? As far as I know, timers are server based, how do you account for zones that are cross-server where you might swap servers? I'm not a coder, so maybe it is something that's possible, I just can't wrap my brain around it.

The Timeless Isles one is the only one I know of and it only works when there are enough players around who also have the addon so it can communicate the data to it when a rare was last seen.

It would be real nice to know when say, Loque was spawned or Terrorpene or any number of other rares that have long timers with high camp rates.
