Iron giants are strong, durable humanoids that appear mostly in [[Tartarus]], but can also be occasionally found in [[Depths]]. Their normal attack, iron shot, and throw all deal tremendous damage, especially to characters with low [[AC]]. (Throw deals 1d88.) Being tossed around can further make a bad situation worse.

Useful Info

Iron giants are strong, slow, durable humanoids that can deal massive damage with melee attacks, irresistible attack spells, and thrown allies. They are found most often in Tartarus, but can occasionally generate in the Depths as well.

Tips & Tricks

  • While it's certainly possible to take iron giants on in melee, their range with Iron Shot is a mere four tiles. If you don't want to chance going toe to toe with one, feel free to take advantage of their slow speed and kite them with longer ranged attacks. Just be sure to change strategy if another enemy enters the fray, as the giant's Throw Ally ability can do surprisingly high damage (1d88) if the RNG isn't on your side.
  • As with nearly all slow enemies, if all else fails, just walk away.
