A gigantic humanoid with grey skin almost as hard as rock. It carries several boulders, and is perfectly capable of flinging them a great distance.

“I really believe what you say, answered the knight; for, I have been engaged with the giant, in the most obstinate and outrageous combat that I believe I shall ever fight in all the days of my life: with one backstroke, slam went his head to the ground; and discharged such a quantity of blood, that it ran like rills of water, along the field.”
-Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, _The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La
Mancha_, IV, 10. 1605.
trans. Carlos Fuentes, 1997.

Useful Info

Stone giants are massive, powerful humanoids who hurl large rocks at their opponents when at range, then move into melee to smash whatever's left. They hit hard and can take a decent amount of abuse, but have no resistances or defenses to speak of. They can be found throughout the Vaults and the Depths.

Tips & Tricks

  • They can hit hard enough in melee that you may not want to let them get too close, but they can also deal heavy damage at range with their large rocks. They only have three or four of those each, however, so if you can survive that initial salvo, it becomes very easy to kite them. Repel Missiles, Deflect Missiles, and/or a source of invisibility will help make those few shots much easier to avoid.
  • Though their name might suggest it, they are not vulnerable to LRD.
