Useful Info

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.

The actual max HP of this monster depends on the spell power of which you cast Summon Cactus Giant. This can be lower than (92 - 187) HP range listed in the infobox.

Tips & Tricks

  • With their high HP and low EV, cactus giants excel at any shielding tactics a summon can provide.
  • 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.
