Skies of Arcadia Wiki

The Roc is a giant bird which flies over Ixa'taka.

It is one of the 5 giant monsters you must hunt down if you want the Extravagant or Sky Battle King swashbuckler rating, and to unlock the 3 secrets.

The Roc can only be fought after returning from Yafutoma and having the Delphinus upgraded to fly at extreme altitudes. It may be necessary to find the Roc's Nest Discovery first, which is also in Ixa'taka.


These legendary birds were all but considered myths as the only trace of them were huge feathers found on land or blowing in the wind. Without the discovery of the Roc's Nest, these creatures would have been considered extinct.


Once given the choice of how to fight, it is much better to take it head on, making sure that you have focused enough so it is possible to fire the Moon Stone Cannon. A blast from the cannon typically does 18000 in damage, and it should be over in about two shots. Ultimately it is a relatively short battle.


  • Blast Voice/Scream

A larger version of the Eerie Wail. It uses this every turn and it typically causes about 4000 damage.

  • Grab

The Roc grabs the ship and tosses it about, typically causing about 6000 in damage; this attack only occurs in the red zones.
