Rocs are a type of birds that can be found in various regions of Azeroth, including Sholazar Basin, Tanaris, Feralas, Mount Hyjal and the Broken Isles.

The rocs of the latter category differ vastly from those in the old world. Whereas the rocs of Kalimdor and Northrend mostly resemble eagles or vultures, the Broken Isle rocs are enormous, dread raven-like birds, created when harpies use their foul magics to corrupt the noble giant eagles of the Skyhorn tribe.[1][2] Bloodbeak is a roc found among the harpies on Exile's Reach.

Rocs can be either birds of prey or carrion birds. To see which group the roc belongs to, check the model. If it uses the eagle or giant roc model, it is a bird of prey. Otherwise, it's a carrion bird.
