I found some in the "Tranquil garden cemetery" and in "Rolands Doom".



Happy catching!

IMHO- Clearly one of the most difficult battle pets to find in rare form in Duskwood! Not an abundance available to search among and have yet to find a rare after hours of searching on two different realms. {update}-Finally found a rare after two days, two realms, and many hours. He was the secondary pet to a mouse.

Not many spawn, and they are scattered all around. After two days of hunting, I finally found one as a secondary pet to a Dusk Spiderling, of which there are many. They show up when battling most other pets in the zone (Mice, spiderlings, roaches, etc.), so just engage everything you see.

So I have been farming Duskwood for about an hour and have seen a far Share of Rat Snake's but no luck in a rare. I did however manage to snag a Green for the time being as I am working towards a total rare collection. Its 9:30 Server atm so Ill keep farming for bit longer and keep you posted on my progress.



After killing about another 20 pets I found a Rare Rat Snake at 10:07 Server time at coordinates 48.3 X 61.9

Found out something this evening I was farming the widow spiderling and then they disappeared and suddenly duskwood was full of the Rat Snakes, so i am taking it that they spawn after the widow spiderling go.

Zone was empty but decided to try to get a rare widow/dusk spiderling and see if that would trigger a spawn. Got a rare rat snake as a second with a dusk spider at about 1am server.

I found two after about 10 minutes searching, both at Yorgen Farmstead. Luckily, the second was a rare. 

Found at 11.45 am server at 49.75

Found several spawns of them in the Vul'gol Ogre Mound of Duskwood.


Had trouble finding them elswhere while flying about so I tried to trigger it as a secondary combatant, though I saw none in seven battles or so.

Looking for a rare and finding its hard to find any at all, nevermind a rare.  I have only seen 2 as the primary pet in over an hour of looking.  Found a couple as the secondary and all were common or poor.  Will have to keep looking.


Update: Found a bunch as primary and secondary at Rotting Orchard, but still no rares there.


2nd update:  Found lots more, including my rare, at night (approx 10-11pm ST).

I need a rare rat snake and I need a rare skunk. I fly into Duskwood and I see a skunk. First fight of the night. And the add? A rare rat snake. So I'm like, "awesome!" and I forfeit the match to grab my turnip. While I'm doing that, a worg comes in and kills the skunk in front of me. So instead of farming rare pets tonight, I'm killing every damn worg in the zone.

Years ago, humans introduced these reptiles into Duskwood to cull the local rat population.
