    Is there no replacement for NPC scan?

    I've spent over 2 weeks staring at snow trying to get a time lost. Is there nothing I can use to avoid it? I wish they increased the chance of him spawning or something. Because it finally spawned earlier today after those two weeks since the last spawn....

    Any chance something works so I don't have to be at my computer 24/7?

    Cache scanning no longer works, so the only way to do it without being at the computer involves things against the ToS.

    NPCscan still works, it just always goes off @.@

    It no longer checks cache loads, only target/mouseover. If you are tabbed out, and it flies by it won't trigger

    Blizzard changed how the cache works, possibly because of NPCScan and similar.
    However if a rare has a vignette (minimap skull icon) NPCScan can still pick it up, and more reliably since it won't spot a corpse.

    They also offer a key binding that runs the `/target` stuff to find the NPCs around you. (SilverDragon is marginally more useful because they have a `/click` option that you can put in a macro of your own to, eg, have it mark the target with diamond if not dead; I found that valuable.)

    As the second poster said, though, if you want this working you have to keep hitting a hardware event, and the only way to automate *that* is against the ToS.

    (I think. Is /target HW protected? I think so, but can't find confirmation...)

    Have to fly around looking for nameplates if you're out for the white camel
