Useful Info

Saint Roka the Messiah is a unique orc warlord of Beogh who leads a band of fellow orcs on a crusade for their god. Saint Roka is a very powerful melee fighter, usually found wielding a powerful two-handed weapon and wearing a heavily enchanted set of plate armour, but they are also a threat at range due to their smiting and the crossbow they occasionally spawn with.

Saint Roka allows Hill Orcs to convert to Beogh, like an orc priest would.

Slot1 Battlecry Vocal flag
Slot2 Smiting (7-17) Priest flag

Tips & Tricks

  • If you ever start finding orcs "where they shouldn't be" (e.g. the Snake Pit), and you've ruled out shapeshifters, be prepared for a Saint Roka encounter.
  • If Saint Roka lacks a crossbow, their smite hurts a lot less than their glaive, so tackling them from range is generally the less dangerous prospect.
  • Facing Saint Roka's entire cohort at once is often suicidal. Don't be afraid to show up, blast a few orcish minions, and then flee to safety.
  • Especially pious followers of Beogh may be able to convert Saint Roka to their cause, giving them an incredibly powerful permanent ally.
  • As strong as they are, Saint Roka can't see invisible (nor can their minions, barring an orc sorcerer or orc high priest). Using invisibility can help you either get a leg up in combat or escape in relative safety.
