Glod

Glod is a huge, muscular giant who can be found on the cloud at the top of the magic beanstalk in the Grim Tales quest. He uses an extremely accurate melee attack, in which he stomps on the player. Glod has the ability to bellow threats at players to either make them run in fear of the huge giant or charge at him in anger. He can also heal himself similar to the gorillas on Ape Atoll, making him a bit harder to kill. When Glod is killed he drops the golden goblin which is a quest item needed for the Grim Tales quest.

Glod is immune to poison-based attacks. In addition, he also has the ability to disable any active prayers on the player, also lowering their prayer points by a noticeable amount. If you stand at least 3 steps away from him, he will not be able to use his melee attacks.

A good method of fighting Glod is with magic, standing at the edge of the arena as to render his bellow that makes players run away useless. Players will then only have to worry about the bellow that makes them charge forward.

Alternatively, if using melee, setting Protect from Melee/Deflect Melee as a quick prayer and when Glod knocks out your prayer, double click the quick prayers icon to quickly restore the prayer.

These items are dropped alongside main drops.

Graphical updates[edit | edit source]

Update history[edit | edit source]

This information has been compiled as part of the update history project. Some updates may not be included - see here for how to help out!

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • At one point, Glod could be fought an infinite amount of times. This was done by defeating him, not picking up the Golden Goblin, climbing back down and then back up. He would reappear and must be killed again in order to receive the goblin. This also made multiple gem drops possible, at the cost of prayer/food/runes/arrows.
  • Glod is an alternate name for Fornjót, an ancient giant in Norse mythology.
  • While fighting, Glod may shout "Glod smash!" This is a reference to the Marvel Comics superhero Hulk, well known for his catchphrase: "Hulk smash!"
  • Glod's appearance is similar to that of the Incredible Hulk.
  • Before the human model updates, Glod was one of the few NPCs that actually had visible fingers.
  • Glod was featured as the first question in the RuneScape quiz 14. This quiz was released 29 June 2010, the question being "Where can Glod be found?" The answer was "At the top of the beanstalk like all good giants!"
  • Glod is currently the largest giant in the game.
  • The golden goblin is a reference to the golden hen and the golden harp from the fairy tale: "Jack and the Beanstalk." The giant being found at the top of a beanstalk (and someone murdering the giant and stealing his possessions) is also a reference to Jack and the Beanstalk.
  • Since being graphically updated, Glod's island bears a striking resemblance to various floating Armadylian structures, complete with runestones akin to those found on clan citadels, suggesting his island may have had a similar origin.
