If you're a Hunter and want to tame the matching pet, the rare in Hillsbrad Foothills named Alitus, is exactly the same.
Got this pet for it's aesthetics (one of my favorite fliers) but found that it disappears as soon as I leave the ground on a flying mount, and then does not come back until I not only land but actually get off my mount. Disappointing.
Love this guy, one of my go-to pets when there are alot of Anubisath Idols in play. Get the P/S breed, 273 speed edges out 260 speed range pets. Infected Claw really punishes Humanoids, but remember you will probably miss at least 1 or 2 times with only 85% hit(75% if sandstorm is up).
Don't be afraid to backline the pet at 50% health and "sacrifice" another pet so you can Consume Corpse and heal back up.
Clonedancer team use Cyclone, or go for Lift-Off so you can avoid stuff
First drop into Andorhal 2pm server time. Rare right off the bat. Soooo happy. (45,72)
I consider myself very lucky when I got my rare Blighthawk in B/B. I went to Western Plaguelands and found plenty of Blighthawks. I clicked the first one I saw, and it was gray, however, it had a companion with it - a rare Blighthawk B/B. My shortest pet grind so far!
two mins after i got there found a white on a peice of wall right in the middle of the fighting..
I too got mine last night on a black rat proc, a nice P/S rare after 3 battles.
After spending all day farming this pet and not finding any where they are the primary pet (due to crz zoning). I was able to find a rare as a secodary pet from a black rat. I have seen them as secondaries with squirells as well, but not with rabbits.
I got a lvl10 rare on my 5th pet battle, and it was the second to apear near the farm, came with a squirl. also the description on this pet says it flys along side your mount. it does not with me.
Really Relieved! Found one as soon as I got to the area and the secondary was a rare. Really didn't have the patience to hunt for another pet.
If you just camping and waiting for Blighthawk to spawn you will need longer time to get rare because some how the spawnning rate is long.
Fight the Black rats along the Western Pluagelands. There is high chance that Blighthawk come as secondary pets. Good luck just got my Rare H.P and H.H rare both form the black rat.
Oddly enough, I had no issue whatsoever getting this pet. I noticed an empty spot in my achievement for the EK Safari being WPL, opened my journal and went, hey, I don't have a Blighthawk! Looked on the map, thought, mmm, probably around Andorhal.
2:12 PM, found me a blue P/S about two minutes after finding a common B/B.
Thinking of him as a good pet to replace my Shadeling against Taran Zhu to dodge the Blinding Powder with Lift-Off, as well as having fairly powerful undead moves.
Perhaps these are really night-owls. I found 7 of them (C,U,C,C,C,P,U) right in Andorhal this AM around 4am server time. They didn't seem to respawn so perhaps that's why people have had trouble finding them previously (slow respawn at busy times?) Also found a couple as backline pets to rabbits and squirrels nearby but the percentage was low. I'd recommend a night session if you're having trouble getting this one.
Found 2 rares P/S and H/H 5:05pm realm time, 1 near the blacksmith supplies building and the 2nd next to Araj the Summoner.
Lol. I just take it that I'm quite lucky. I flew around for only a couple minutes, found one, it was rare. However, Im sure I'll be struggling for a while to get it on my wife's account.
Black Rat, Squirrel, Rabbit

Just got a rare Blighthawk after having poor for a couple months. Decided to check it since it was late, 3:30 server time to be exact. Flew right to the center of Andorhal and there were at least 6 that I saw. First one was uncommon, so I took it, then the next one was rare! To say the very least, I'm happy I decided to go check it out.
Finally after months of trips to Andorhal and killing everything in site I nab my rare. Just before I gave up tonight I stopped by and read all your comments and realized that most of you caught your rares out side the city as seconds upon trying this I found my new baby on my third pass at Dolson's Farm as a second to a black rat on Thunderhorn at 12:ooam est. Hope this helps someone and happy hunting to all. Oh and thanks to everyone who leaves a comment they really do help!!!!!
This might help with the phasing problem. Go into your key bindings and find INTERACT WITH TARGET, then click on the red button to the right under KEY 1 that says unbound. Then the next key you hit will bind it to that key. I used my tilde key ` when you find a pet that's phased (like the black rats) that might have a blight hawk as a secondary, get close enough so you can target one and get on a flying mount then fly towards it spamming your interact key. Works but takes timing.
