The Brilliant Direbeak mount is one of four Falcosaur mounts that comes from finding the Orphaned Falcosaur after you slay it’s mother and caring for it. In this case the mother being the Direbeak Matriarch during the World Quest Direbeak Swarm!
Only two Falcosaur World Quests will be up at a time in either Highmountain, Azsuna, Val’Sharah and Stormheim. If the one in Stormheim is up then the Direbeak Hatchling will be obtainable but before you head over, ensure you have Pungent Vrykul Gamalost in your bags, this can be purchased in Dalaran or from Steward Dayon 71.6, 60.6 in Stormheim.
Slay the Direbeak Matriarch and then head North. Here you will find a rock platform and on this rock the Direbeak Hatchling who you can feed and it will then become a pet.
Caring for your Hatchling
From here you will need to summon your hatchling pet and complete a quest line to raise your hatchling. The intent is for you to do one per day, however if you log onto a different character after completing the quest and summon your hatchling you will be able to do another quest in the same day. You can repeat this as many times as you wish as long as you have other characters.
#1 Raising Your Direbeak – This will be to raise the pet to level 25. You can purchase leveling stones for pet charms in the Dalaran pet shop to speed this up or if you haven’t completed the Menagerie questline in your level 3 WoD Garrison, this will also provide a level 25 pet charm
