A hill giant is a type of giant found in several locations across Gielinor. They are the weakest giant. They only attack with melee and have very low Defence, which makes them great training for low to mid-levelled players.

Edgeville Dungeon and the resource dungeon within is a popular location to fight hill giants, as both a bank and the Grand Exchange are close by. The dungeons may be accessed through the trapdoor in the ruins south of Edgeville, or in a hut west of the Cooking Guild if the player has a brass key.

Locations[edit | edit source]

Champion's Challenge[edit | edit source]

Hill Giants are one of the 'races' who have a lesser champion in the members-only Champion's Challenge Distraction and Diversion. To fight the Giant Champion, the player must kill Hill Giants until one drops a Giant Champion's scroll, a very rare drop. The Distraction & Diversion just uses the term 'giant', but the only type of giant that drops the scroll is the Hill Giant.

Of course there are tons of different ways to access the RDT so it changes massively depending on what you're fighting, what you're wearing etc."
  4. ^ Vecna skull requires tier 4 luck. Chance is 1/1280 per roll of the rare drop table with the tier 4 luck requirement.[d 3]
  5. ^ Cheese+tom batta indicates a roll for Hazelmere's signet ring without tier 4 luck.

Universal drops[edit | edit source]

Universal drops are dropped by nearly every monster outside of Daemonheim.
These items are dropped alongside main drops.

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!
  • update 31 January 2005 (Update):
    • Giants have been renamed to hill giants. This is to make it clear that when the slayer masters tell you to kill hill giants, they don't mean moss giants, fire giants or ice giants.
    • We have added more hill giants and hellhounds to cope with the increased demand for these creatures that has been created by the slayer skill.
    • There are hill giants added to the north of the observatory and south-west of the gnome stronghold.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • They were once just called 'Giants', but this was later changed by Jagex to avoid confusion between other giants.
  • There are 5 safe spots which can be used for killing Hill Giants in the Edgeville Dungeon, thus it is a popular place for players to train Ranged and Magic.
  • Despite being called "Hill Giants", the majority of the giants are found in dungeons. The reason for the naming was revealed in a Postbag from the Hedge; they are called "Hill Giants" because their muscles on their arms resemble hills.[1]
