Wasn't there a "Roc's Feather" in Link's Awakening? --Raevild 13:49, 1 June 2008 (CDT)raevild

  • Yes, but in all of its incarnations it was used to jump - so far scanning the information here, I don't really see anything to link it to the Zelda series, since the Roc was a mythical bird that exists outside the Zeldaverse. (I looked, hopefully and with fervor, for a Zelda reference! Hopefully one shows up.) --The KoW 16:48, 1 June 2008 (CDT)

Somebody has gotta know where to get the Roc's Feather. How else would anyone know of it's existance? --Lemon-claw 15:00, 1 June 2008 (CDT)

I got one of these - I mixed up using all of the combat skills, and I think I only used the sleaze skill 1 time, against a sleaze resistant monster.--Camperdave 20:32, 1 June 2008 (CDT)

Given that there is 1 feather for each element, I'd say it's safe to assume that the roc feather would be obtained with physical attacks.--Oddity 21:11, 1 June 2008 (CDT)

Seems that the key is using the attack skill every time you face a monster as a bird. The result text from the llama seems to point that out: "You exhibited the spirit of the mighty roc, learning that there is no problem that the judicious application of the tools at hand cannot solve. The tools at hand in this case were all violence, but it is a valuable lesson nonetheless." 3 gongs, three roc feathers using that method, one time I used normal attack a few times and got no reward.--Dannyboy 22:06, 1 June 2008 (CDT)

Using the familiar currently in my hc ascension, i tried the bird form as a lv.2. The number of skills seems limited to the amount of MP i have. I used the lowest MP-consuming skill for every of the 15 adventures that is a combat or when i ran out of mp, i used the beak attack. Then i chose to talk to the Llama. I got this reward. I even switched familiars while in bird form. Only switching back to llama when its the 14th adventure.--Tofu 02:03, 2 June 2008 (CDT)

When I got my feather I don't think I even had the llama equiped but I could be wrong.--Pakrat 02:27, 2 June 2008 (CDT)

AS far I can tell I've reliably figured out how to get the feather. You have to use the Talon attack at least 15 times. You do not have to use it every combat as long as your total is 15, and you do not have to have the Lama as your active familiar. Tested numbers 8(fail), 13(fail), 14(fail), 15(feather), 20-some (feather). Could probably use some confirmation that was all I could do with my 5 gongs for the day. --TekDragon 09:45, 2 June 2008 (CDT)

It's a little easier than that, Tek. I did 14 talons and a buffet (managed to wedge a pipe in there, too), and got a roc feather. I'm thinking that you need 15 MP-attacks, regardless of what kind they are. Or possibly different attacks count for more. Ponder Stibbons 15:19, 2 June 2008 (CDT)

Handy little tip if you're running low on Bird turns and you aren't going to make the feather requirements, fighting a physical resistant monster like the chalkdust wraith or the miner ghost lets you get in a lot of Talon attacks in as little as 1 turn. Chalk Wraiths can be killed, but you may have to let the turn count get to 30 (or just run away) for Miner Ghosts. --Andy00 13:39, 4 June 2008 (CDT)

I got 31 sarcasm from the feather on separate days. So i do not think 30 is the max. Wondering if uniformity is required (putting all the max values as 30) or the exact values should be keyed in?--Tofu 09:21, 7 June 2008 (CDT)

Yesterday and the day before were moxie stat days. Was that the source of your 31? --Prestige 09:52, 7 June 2008 (CDT)
I didn't know that stat days will affect stats from spleen items. If that is the case then perhaps that's why i got 31.--Tofu 06:32, 8 June 2008 (CDT)

I've confirmed that at no point does the Llama Lama does not at any point need to be equipped to get the Welcome Back! adventure. Also, you can use all of the necessary physical attacks in one fight. Physical-resistant monsters are great. Simply equip a weapon/accessories which grant you elemental damage as the effect will still apply in bird form. Then you can use Talon attack 15 times, then have 15 attacks left to finish them off! Even with merely +10 elemental damage, you can easily defeat a physical resistant monster. Elemental attacks, however, will need to be used once per turn.--Raeth 10:25, 7 June 2008 (CDT)


Unsure about the first reference, as sticking feathers, to tickle the back of the throat, is an old method to induce vomiting (as alluded to in the description). It may even tie into above mention of Roman traditions, as such techniques where employed (at least according to movie scripts) during feasts in order to continue eating, binge and purge.
