Sometimes known as Big Birds or Greater Birds, Rocs are one of the largest birds in the system - and can be the deadliest. With high evasion and a number of multi-hit attacks, Rocs can evade what you throw at them and then counter with a relentless blow of attacks. Even the most prepared and experienced forces should be wary.

All Rocs can drop feathers and plumes when defeated. The feathers are used in a few recipes, most notably the highly-prized Icarus Wing. The plume is sought after by high level crafters in clothcraft, leathercraft, and woodworking. The plumes can also fetch a decent price with certain merchants.

The meat of the Diatryma variety of Roc, found only in Eastern Altepa Desert and Misareaux Coast, can also be scavenged from the defeated bird. The meat is distasteful to most occupants of Vana'diel, but it can be used in a soup edible to Za'Dha Adamantking and used to spawn a notorious bugard.
