While these creatures are mammoth sized, their brains aren't quite as big. Known for their oddball shouts, they're very similar in color and size of regular Giants, only difference is their stench, and slightly lighter hue in color.
Known Loot Edit
- up to 1,000 Gold Pieces
- Sometimes a Giant Heart
- sometimes Club of Power
- Very rarely Ring of Lesser Heal
For level 9 Fighters, hunting Hill Giants is very popular and profitable. Fighters at that level can hunt Hill Giants solo without much trouble, provided they have potions. However, with a Cleric, they can kill the Hill Giants much more effectively. As Hill Giants have very high Armor Rating, it is helpful to have a high Anatomy skill level, as Critical Hits ignore Armor Rating.
Hill Giants are susceptible to poison and poison weapons will kill them much faster.
