About Bunny Hunter

Ever been grinding for the Hyacinth Macaw and wanted to know just how unlucky you are? Then this is the addon for you!

Bunny Hunter tracks how many times you've looted mobs that drop rare pets, how long you've spent farming and shows you the chance that you should have gotten your pet by now. Supports (nearly) all the farmable pets and tracks multiple drops of each pet. Just start looting those Bloodsail Pirates!

Since version 1.6, Bunny Hunter also supports farming for rare mount drops. Just select a mount from the drop down menu, or start killing mobs that drop them. Bear in mind that the addon works by watching you *loot* mobs, so if someone else in your party or raid loots the mob, it wont be tracked.

When AOE looting was introduced in 5.0.4, Bunny Hunter changed the way it detects units being looted. At this time, there is no way to find out the mobs being looted if they only drop gold. Hopefully this will be fixed in future patches.

If you would like to better understand how this addon calculates percentages, read this detailed explanation.

Supported pets:

  • Hyacinth Macaw
  • Green Wing Macaw
  • Deviate Hatchling
  • Gundrak Hatchling
  • Razzashi Hatchling
  • Azure Whelpling
  • Tiny Crimson Whelpling
  • Dark Whelpling
  • Tiny Emerald Whelpling
  • Captured Firefly
  • Black Tabby Cat
  • Phoenix Hatchling
  • Sprite Darter Egg
  • Fox Kit

Supported mounts:

  • Al'ar
  • Onyxian Drake
  • Fiery Warhorse
  • Rivendare's Deathcharger
  • Blue Proto-Drake
  • Vitreous Stone Drake
  • Drake of the North Wind
  • Swift White Hawkstrider
  • Raven Lord
  • Headless Horseman's Mount
  • Red Qiraji Battle Tank

Not tracked because they have 100% drop:

  • Invincible (Lich King 25H)
  • Mimiron's Head (Yogg-Saron 25+0)
  • Time-Lost Proto-Drake
  • Black Drake Mount (Sarth 10 3D)
  • Twilight Drake Mount (Sarth 25 3D)

Not tracked for other reasons:

  • Sea Turtle (Comes from fishing)
  • White Polar Bear (Comes from a quest reward)
  • Blue Drake (Can be found in both EoE 10, and Occulus bags)
  • Azure Drake (Can be found in EoE 10 & 25, from a chest)
  • Yellow/Green/Blue Qiraji Battle Tank (Not really rare)
  • Green Proto-Drake (Comes from an egg)
  • Swift Razzashi Raptor (No longer obtainable)
  • Swift Zulian Tiger (No longer obtainable)
  • Disgusting Oozeling (2-tier looting - will implement one day)
  • Mojo (Same as oozeling)


  • To show/hide the frame, type /bh or /bunnyhunter
  • To change the pet you're tracking, click on the pet icon
  • Drag the progress bar to move the frame
  • Drag the small grey rectangle to resize the frame

A few more kiils needed Tracking multiple drops

Timing starts when you loot the first mob and ends after 5 minutes of not looting a relevant mob (or logging out, or switching to a different pet). After 5 minutes not looting relevant mobs, your farming time is paused at the last relevant mob you looted. It's complicated to understand at first, but makes sense when you've played with it for a while. For example:

  • I loot a Bloodsail Warlock, starting my farming timer
  • I farm for 30 minutes, looting many more Bloodsail mobs
  • I loot my last Bloodsail Mage and start running back to Booty Bay
  • 5 minutes later, the timer stops.
  • Only the time between the first warlock and the last mage is added to my counter

This addon works by tracking when you *loot* mobs. If you're in a party/raid and you don't personally open the loot window for the mob, it will not get tracked.

If you started farming for pets or mounts before you installed this addon, you can modfiy your current kill count by editing this file:


Make sure you quit WoW before editing it. Make a backup incase you break something. You will want to edit the ["kills_by_id"] section - the numbers on the left are mob IDs and the numbers on the right are counts.

  • #132

    To make it count in 6.0.2 open BunnyHunter.lua in an editor, goto line 1007 where function BH.ExtractUnitId(guid) startes and replace the function with:

    function BH.ExtractUnitId(guid)

    if (guid) then
    local typeStr, zero, server_id, instance_id, zone_uid, npc_id, spawn_uid = strsplit("-",guid);
    return npc_id;

    return 0;

    I also updated the libs in the Libs folder with the current ones from:

  • #131

    How about adding Grand Black War Mammoth? From vault of Archavon?

    when farming the noxious whelps for the Emerald Whelp the bunny hunter changes to the Sprite Darter

    Quote from cowdeliaearthen »

    when farming the noxious whelps for the Emerald Whelp the bunny hunter changes to the Sprite Darter 

    I am having the problem/issue....

  • #128

    On line 119 of the .lua change 1/1000 to 1/10000.

    The Azure Whelpling has a chance of 1 in 10k to drop.

    At best it's 1 in 5k for some mobs (wowhead data suggests). But i wouln't count on it.

  • #126

    Any chance of updating this to include the lootable pets/mounts on Timeless Isle?

  • #127

    FYI, Rarity has everything on Timeless Isle (and for that matter, everything else in the game).

  • #125

    The drop rate for the Azure Whelpling is 1/10,000 not 1/1,000. Thanks.

  • #124

    Please consider adding these mounts to the tracker:

    Reins of the Azure Drake - The Eye of Eternity - Malygos

    Reins of the Blue Drake - The Eye of Eternity - Malygos

    Swift Zulian Panther - Zul'Gurub - High Priestess Kilnara

    Armored Razzashi Raptor - Zul'Gurub - Bloodlord Mandokir

  • #123

    Please change the description as this part is not correct:

    Not tracked because they have 100% drop:

    • Invincible (Lich King 25H)
    • Mimiron's Head (Yogg-Saron 25+0)
    Neither are 100% drop.

    Also, Onyxia Drake 10m is not recording loots.  Please fix.  It's been broken since before 5.3.


  • #122

    Bookmarked - as I know this will be useful on a grind, soon.

  • #121

    A new version (2.5) has just been upload and will appear here shortly.

    It fixes this Lua error about `GetInstanceDifficulty` and allows looting to be correctly recorded.

  • #120

    That actually doesn't fix the problem because the GetInstanceInfo uses a different numbering scheme.

    However you can fix the problem by replacing the "BH.GetMode()" function below with:

    function BH.GetMode()

    local name, type, difficulty, difficultyName, maxPlayers, playerDifficulty, isDynamicInstance = GetInstanceInfo();

    if (difficulty == 1) then return "5N";
    elseif (difficulty == 2) then return "5H";
    elseif (difficulty == 3) then return "10N";
    elseif (difficulty == 4) then return "25N";
    elseif (difficulty == 5) then return "10H";
    elseif (difficulty == 6) then return "25H"; end

    return "-";

  • #119

    To fix the errors open the .lua file and change line 1512

    from:   local diff = GetInstanceDifficulty();

    to:   local diff = select(3,GetInstanceInfo());


  • #117

    Hi there! I am new to Curse, but have been playing WOW for over a year. Thanks for making such great products!

    I just started using Bunny Hunter (gotta get that sprtie darter!) and I got this error the first time I tried looting with it. I did restart the game, and even cold rebooted my machine to make sure that wasn't it. I will paste the full text of the error below. I figure some of the data at the end *might* not be relevant, but I'll give you all of it just in case.

    Thanks so much for any help you can suggest!
