- Prior to the Cataclysm, an easy way to kill Sharptalon as a Horde player was to tap it, then run over to the Forsaken camp near the Dor'danil Barrow Den and have the guards kill it. The Forsaken Camp has since been removed, so this method no longer works.

- (Sharptalon seems to be the only source of buzzard wings that isn't a carrion bird)
