Some time after the invasion of Outland, Hamuul Runetotem gave a hippogryph feather to the gladiators Broll Bearmantle and Lo'Gosh. Broll used the feather to summon Sharptalon, and escape from Thunder Bluff to Ashenvale. During the process, Sharptalon was injured by an orc wyvern rider. Broll rode him during a fight in the Warsong Gulch. His next stops were Thistlefur Hold, Darnassus and Theramore and then Sharptalon was free to go.
He apparently returned to Ashenvale as he was attacked and killed by adventurers of the Horde who took his claw to Senani Thunderheart at Silverwind Refuge. Despite this, Horde hunters that know the secrets of taming feathermanes can catch him.
