| This huge, bolt-hurling, lightning-limned humanoid is unusually large and powerful, even among giants.
“And on the other part the Titans eagerly strengthened their ranks, and both sides at one time showed the work of their hands and their might. The boundless sea rang terribly around, and the earth crashed loudly: wide Heaven was shaken and groaned, and high Olympus reeled from its foundation under the charge of the undying gods, and a heavy quaking reached dim Tartarus and the deep sound of their feet in the fearful onset and of their hard missiles. So, then, they launched their grievous shafts upon one another, and the cry of both armies as they shouted reached to starry heaven; and they met together with a great battle-cry.”
Titans are the deadliest of the common giants, landing devastating blows in melee and blasting you at range with powerful Air Magic. They occasionally spawn in the Depths, and are almost always found on the bottom floor of the Vaults.
Tips & Tricks
- First and foremost, don't engage them while flying; their Airstrike spell deals an extra 50% damage to flying characters. To deal with their other spells, have electricity resistance and avoid standing in a place that makes multizaps possible.
- Strong melee characters can generally take them out one-on-one, though you may want to haste or might yourself if that's available. Berserk works great if you know the titan is alone, but often they will appear in areas where monsters will quite often appear at the edge of your line of sight at inopportune times.
- Conjurers should use their most powerful non-electric Conjurations, as a titan's low EV makes them easy targets. Even Bolt of Inaccuracy has a decent chance of hitting them. As they have only one attack, titans are also relatively easy to overwhelm with reasonably powerful summons.
- Don't bother with Mephitic Cloud -- their high HD means that there is only a 1/11 chance they will be affected per turn, generally letting them walk out unconfused. Other types of poison are quite effective, though.
