Main article: Birds of prey

Most in-game rocs are considered carrion birds, however, with the owls classification changing to birds of prey, some rocs are now considered birds of prey.


A roc or rukh (from the Arabic and Persian رخ rokh, asserted by Louis Charles Casartelli to be an abbreviated form of Persian simurgh) is an enormous legendary bird of prey, often white, reputed to have been able to carry off and eat elephants.[1]
