Ruins of Alterac is a zone by itself. Battle Rats[3] possibility of Hare as 2ndary, in Strahnbrad (takes up BP spots so battle 2 if they respawn). Go through Crushridge (higher % of spawns) and beyond as shown on Wowhead/Pettracker. Ignore spawn 53,23 -bugged (AoE may kill it). You don't have to kill the non-BP Hares, but you can. After I battled the Rats, the BP Hares were already spawning. The Hares de/spawn after a while, even the BP one. I got my rare this way. More info on Wowhead(Korleth).

So, after getting absolutely bored after 3 days of farming secondary pets in conjunction with my Lofty Libram search, I seem to have found the key to pet farming...


Find one of the spawn points of the Snowshoe Hare and kill it. The critters are instant spawning, and will just spawn after like 20 seconds, if it stops spawning, check the other spawn points. At some point, a battle pet Snowshoe Hare will spawn in the critter spot, viola.  I got my rare in 10 minutes after 3 battles.

In Alterac there are always only TWO SH up, normal or BP. They vanish/burrow between spawn points in Alterac (see wowhead map), but only change form at respawn so kill all non-BP hares and keep going. Dead hares respawn immediately somewhere else in the area and could come back as a BP. Also try to keep spawn areas clear so mobs don’t interrupt. I lost my rare moments before caging it when a yeti interrupted. Saw them everywhere as adds but finally got my rare in Alterac.

Got mine as a secondary pet to the rat in Dalaran Crater.  It was poor but I will take it and use a battle stone.  Good Luck all!

Just in case this hasn't been commented before, they burrow after about 30 seconds or so, didnt actually time it, placeholders need to be killed for pets to spawn, they burrow as well.


Yea I have also seen them as seconds, on other pets close to the area, but assume the actuals have more chance as a rare, I've been running around 52,23  back and forth killing the place holders, and ogres for the black tabby drop while looking for a rare one of these.

I finally got it just a few mins ago. It was only poor quality but it's better than nothing. It came in as a add from a Rat. I found it at 58,72 I hope this helps people get theirs! :)

Just got mine at Dalaran Crater as an addon with a rabbid. Was checking all battlepets I could find.

This was the only and luckily rare Snowshoe Hare I found.

Just got a rare one as a secondary pet to a [Rat] at the Dalaran Crater (Hillsbrad Foothills), if you have no luck at the ruins like me maybe this will work out for you instead. Good luck!

I didn't find any in the marked area but as everyone else said, they are found as secondary pets in Dalaran Crater.  (An aside, I think it's unfair that the Dalaran mobs treat my horde mage as hostile.  I trained some of them!)


Happy 2016!

just circle a route along the outer rim of the snow covered area on your flying mount. about every 3mins or 2-3 circles a hare will appear. they will also dissapear again quickly, however, so you need to be fast! don't try killing any mobs or non-BP in the area, it is way quicker to just wait it out. I had 4 appear within 15 mins and caught an uncommon one on my 2nd attempt.

Secondary pet possibility in Hillsbrad. Has very few Primary spawn points.


But one of them is right near where the Greech spawns during Xmas. Thats where I got mine, lol, while waiting for group to pull.

I concur with Coton, I've seen this as an addon in battle with everything from spiders in the mine to toads by the river near Tarren Mill; in fact, that's where I finally got my rare. :)

While I'm still farming for my rare snowshoe, I found that if you kill the yellow lvl 5 placeholder snowshoes between Strahnbrad and the ruins it helps to spawn up the battle pets faster. I did try killing the rats in Strahnbrad but to me it didn't honestly seem to make a difference. The real difference was killing the placeholders. Run the half circle path between the Crushridge Ogre's, that is where I found them. :) Hope this helps.

Korendirs advice worked like a charm for me. The hare does not seem to spawn immediately after killing/battling the rats, but I always found some sooner or later, sometimes respawning in the very same spot I had fought another in the same cycle.


Apparently the rats respawn only once all possible hares have been dealt with, so when their corpses can be seen, a hare could possibly be spawning somewhere. But: Hares do eventually despawn, so don't take to much time.


Still need a rare one though.

Chionia is actually spot on. I gave what they said a try and it worked perfectly. As I killed non BP's, others spawned and it could be a BP or non BP.

After hunting for a rare Huge Toad all evening, I noticed that these show up as secondaries uncommonly all over Hillsbrad Foothills. You don't need to stay within Alterac. Just battle everything everywhere and you'll eventually find one as a secondary.


I also noticed that this pet doesn't follow you like the other rabbits when summoned. It just wanders around like its wild version and burrows to despawn.

With the extra large surface area of their legs, snowshoe hares are able to effortlessly hop along the snow while their pursuers get bogged down in the drifts.
