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

Edgeville Dungeon and the resource dungeon within is the most popular location for hill giants on free-to-play worlds, as players like to gather big bones and either bury them for Prayer experience or sell them at the Grand Exchange 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.

Champions' Challenge

Hill Giants are one of the 'races' who have a lesser champion in the Champions' 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. This is only for members.

Trivia

  • 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.
