- Champion Risen Giants don't have a basic attack like many creatures and use a target's distance from them to determine what skill to use.
- If there are not enemies within melee range of them, they will spam their roar repeatedly.
- If there are enemies within melee range of them, they will prioritize using Stomp repeatedly.
- Risen Grubs are thrown in groups of 3-6 every 30 seconds and can easily overwhelm a group of players if not dealt with fast enough.
