Moss giants are fairly large creatures that live in Gielinor. They attack with Ranged and are thus weak against melee attacks. Moss giants are popular for training, especially on Free-to-play worlds, because they are one of the few creatures that drop Big bones. In addition, they are one of the few free-to-play monsters that are weak to slash attacks, making weapons such as the rune scimitar, longsword, battleaxe, claw or 2h sword the preferred choice. Moss giants are aggressive to players with a combat level of 102 or lower.

They are sometimes given out by Vannaka as Slayer assignments. Food is highly recommended for lower levelled players.

Locations[edit | edit source]

Free-to-play[edit | edit source]

Crandor is arguably the best place for free players to kill moss giants as there are three of them and there are rarely any other players on Crandor. They are found in the southwest area of the island, on the middle level (if using Ranged or Magic you can hit them from the bottom or top level if so wish, but beware the level 70 lesser demons on the top level and in the Crandor and Karamja Dungeon you must run pass to get there). Use of Rejuvenate can reduce the need for food, but it may only be used once every five minutes, and requires players to have a shield.

Members[edit | edit source]

Brimhaven Dungeon (requires either 875 coins or Karamja gloves 3), Chaos Tunnels (incredibly dangerous for lower level players due to the many different monsters within, unreliable nature of portals between chambers, and entrances are in the Wilderness), Moss Giant Island, west of Brimhaven (5 moss giants). 10 Agility required. (This is an ideal location for Slayer tasks, as it's usually desolate and allows the player to easily rack up the kills. There are also two respawns of a Slice of cake.)

Mod Timbo: "1/1280 if you hit the RDT, requires T4 luck to be worn in order to get a hold of it. 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."

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The examine, "Bigger than your average moss giant." is a play on Yogi the Bear's words, "Smarter than your average bear".
  • As referred to Armies of Gielinor, Moss Giants are followers of Guthix.
  • As seen in the 6th Postbag from the Hedge, a moss giant's beard has a life of its own. The only known beard currently is Dave the Beard.
  • As shown during the 2017 Easter event through Guthix's memories in the divine egg (ent), Moss Giants came from the same world as the Giant ent species.
  • Moss Giants used to attack with melee until the release of the Evolution of Combat.
