Moss giants are a species of giant that live in Gielinor and are tied with ice giants for third strongest giant. They attack with melee and are weak to fire spells, however melee is also effective against them. Moss giants are popular for training, especially on Free-to-play worlds, because they are one of the few creatures that drop Big bones. Moss giants are aggressive to players with a combat level of 102 or lower.

Free-to-play players can find moss giants in the Varrock sewers, whilst members can find 20 in Brimhaven dungeon. 875 coins or completion of the hard Karamja achievements is required to enter the dungeon.

As Brimhaven dungeon can be dangerous for lower-levelled players, an alternative location is the Moss giant island west of Brimhaven. Level 10 Agility is required to access it.

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

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."
  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.
  6. ^ Blurberry Special indicates a failed 1/10 roll for Hazelmere's signet ring with tier 4 luck.
  7. ^ Hazelmere's signet ring requires tier 4 luck. Rarer than the vecna skull.

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!
  • ninja 1 March 2021 (Update):
    • Moss giants now attack with melee and are weak to fire spells. Some moss giants' levels and stats were also changed.
  • patch 9 June 2009 (Update):
    • Fixed the examine on the bones of moss giants.

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 originally attacked with melee, but their attack style was changed to ranged with the release of the Evolution of Combat. It has since been changed back to melee as of March 2021.
