En route to getting the Falcosaur mounts, I had to capture a Sharptalon which involved a solid 6 minutes of swimming. Still not got flying in Legion /cry.
Want a Sharptalon?
Capturing the Sharptalon, as long as you have the correct meat is no problem ... what this video illustrates is the real challenge; getting there.
At the time, I didn't have Pathfinder finished - so no Legion flying for me; which meant an elaborate swim - but once you're there, it's the usual fair. Have Meat
- Find Patriarch
- Kill; Loot; Then spend 14 days taken a new quest off your new pet everday until it eventually becomes a Sharptalon Mount.
Sharptalon Hatchling - Sharptalon Swarm!
This pet can be picked up from Orphaned Sharptalon in Val'Sharah (/way Val'Sharah 47.0, 10.5) after killing Sharptalon Matriarch (/way Val'Sharah 48.0, 9.8). This world quest is somewhat awkward to get to but I recommend coming in from Highmountain (glider from a high point in the north-west or water walking around from the coast). The food it wants is Dried Bilberries, which can be picked up from Fialla Sweetberry in Dalaran (/way Dalaran 52.6, 34.4) - there are a variety of vendors in Highmountain who also sell the item should you choose to get to the world quest from there.
