Useful Info

Frost giants are enormous frozen humanoids who wield freezing battleaxes and chill everything in their path with icy bolts. They have cold resistance and feel at home in cold-themed branches such as the Ice Cave, as well as the Vaults, the Depths, and the lower levels of the Dungeon.

Tips & Tricks

  • Cold resistance is obviously helpful against them, but be aware that their physical melee damage is still very significant.
  • They have a tendency to carry +2 battleaxes of freezing. They rarely carry +0 triple swords of freezing.
