|A green-skinned, spiny colossus, with a hearty barrel chest and a thirst for battle. Any foe that strikes it in melee will be lucky to live to regret it.|
Cactus giants are durable creatures summoned in by Summon Cactus Giant. Fitting for a giant, they most often spawn with a giant club. And fittingly for a cactus, they retaliate with 5d8 spiny damage when hit in melee.
Tips & Tricks
- With their high HP and low EV, cactus giants excell at any shielding tactics a summon can provide.
- Their HP is determined by the spell power of Summon Cactus Giant, regardless of their default HP.
- Their spines do contribute a great deal of damage, though weary summoners can still use these giants in conjunction with the rest of their arsenal.
