Strategy[edit | edit source]

This minion is an incredibly powerful Taunt, gaining +1/+1 over Fen Creeper on a fairly easy condition. Even without the Taunt, the statline alone makes it a great choice in Arena.

Lore[edit | edit source]

While Rocs do appear in World of Warcraft, they're either a generic type of large bird or corrupted eagles. Two-headed rocs are original to Hearthstone.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The appearance of this minion is most likely a reference to the film The 7th Voyage of Sinbad, which features rocs with a nearly identical design.
