Patch 7.1.0 | Posted: October 25, 2016
This pet is one of four falcosaur hatchlings.

The Sharptalon Hatchling can only be obtained when the Broken Isles World Quest "Sharptalon Swarm!" is active on the coast in Val'sharah. If the World Quest for this specific falcosaur species is not active or is about to time-out, the NPCs necessary will not be visible.

The Matriarch of the species will spawn during the active World Quest. Defeating her will allow you to see an Orphaned Sharptalon in the questing area.

Interacting with this NPC will not yield any results unless you have the hatchling's favorite type of food. The pet's journal description hints at what type of consumable it prefers. This particular falcosaur enjoys Dried Bilberries.

After purchasing the food from a Broken Isles vendor, interacting with the orphaned hatchling will reveal a new dialogue option. Clicking this will add the pet directly to your Pet Journal.

Once added to your collection, this hatchling will have a lengthy quest chain for you. More information can be found on our Patch 7.1 PTR - Falcosaur Hatchling Preview!

Warning squawk will cause weather effects like the talent Scorched Earth to crit YOUR team as well.

However... the possitive side of this talent is that it is a teamwide effect, meaning anything you have in play is boosted with 75% crit chance. (Like bombs and death and decay.)

So I was questing on a new character in Azsuna, and while doing the chain in the academy I happened to think to myself, "huh... I don't have a pet out... Shamrock, you're up!" My green little hatchling came up, and it took me a minute to notice that it had a spell book in one of it's claws, and it was periodically turning transparent and back again. It still ran around and said random things like information on this pet says, but somehow it has a book! I wonder what it grabs in other places?

I had trouble finding this guy the first few times around.  Once you kill the Matriarch, head up the path with the headless skeleton.  (make sure you loot the matriarch first)  Ride right over the top of skeleton and then up a small rise, almost directly south-east of Matriarch nest.  Make sure you have your Dried Billberry with you.  Talk to the Orphan and then it will appear in your pet inventory.

So I have a bug to report on this one, I went to collect it a weeok ago, killed Matriarch and he spawned and i talked to him and went back to Dalaran. And then I noticed... I didnt get it, then I noticed I was on 1000pet limit, and no he wasnt in my mail either ;)

So tried two more times during quest times to get it, but from then, he didnt spšawn for me once, and I killed the Matriarch more than 10 times all together.

Any ideas what to do? I reported bug, seem unable to get to live help.

This little guy destroys water fabled beasts in Pandaria. Most of the time you only need him. Use the 1-1-1 set. Start with Falcosaur Swarm. Then use Predatory Strike. Finish with Wild Winds.

I really like these 4 hatchlings, and there unique quest chains


The Sharptalon Hatchling can found at 47,10 in Val'sharah after you kill the Matriarch, and you need to carry  Dried Bilberries



One trick that I did after starting the quest chain on my level 110 was to finishing leveling the pet to 25 on an alt char that wasn't max level yet for the free exp.

Last night I noticed that the Swarm was available in Val'Sharah.  Getting to the location for it wasn't difficult once I decided to head down the coast from Highmountain. (gotta love the Azure Water Strider)  Killing the Matriach wasn't challenging with all the others who showed up.  What took ME forever was finding the Orphaned Hatchling, even knowing where to look.  (yes the ledge that is up above where the Matriach is)

You have to wait 24 hours between quests to recieve the next one. If you look at the emotes they do after you lvl them up they say something along the lines of 'hatchling needs time to rest after his adventure.' Try summoning him again the next day and he should have a new quest for you.

I know exist a very long chain and the quests givers are the new falcosaurs. In theory the chain should give a mount for each one of them, if i understood well MMO, but when i get my first falcosaur this morning he asked to me only to level up him to lv 25, then i didnt get any other quest from him. Maybe we will need all 4 of them at max lv to start the chain? Any idea?

Sharptalon falcosaurs can subsist entirely on a diet of small nuts and berries, and use their talons mostly for defense.
