Skills
  • Giant Stomp - The Giant stomps the ground, launching and knocking down nearby enemies.
  • Giant Stomp - The Giant pounds the ground three times, sending out shockwaves that knock back foes.
  • Shout - Inflicts fear.

  • These are the only elite rank giants in the game. Two spawn per event.
  • While defeating these Giants doesn't really equate to killing them, doing so will progress the Giant Slayer achievement.
