[FAQ] • [doc]

Ice giants are a type of giant often found in icy areas. They have a relatively high Constitution level and hit a maximum of 185 life points. They are the highest level giants in free to play. Ice giants always drop big bones and tend to be weak against fire spells (magic) and crush attacks. Ice giants are not aggressive to players of combat level 103 and higher. Many players seek these monsters for experience and charms. Ice giants were the third monster to ever hold the title of Strongest Monster in RuneScape.

Trivia

  • Although ice giants do not have any visible bones, they still drop big bones; this dates all the way back from RuneScape Classic, when the ice giants looked like large people with blue beards.
  • Before the graphical update, ice giants used to wield Mithril 2h swords. In RuneScape Classic, they wielded wooden staves. They now appear to wield a scimitar made of ice.
  • Although they wield scimitars, their attack speed is 5, the equivalent of a longsword.
  • When the ice giants walk, icicles appear on the ground around their feet. Icicles will also appear in the same manner before each attack, whether the attack is a player's or theirs.
  • Ice giants seem to "tap" one of their feet when standing still.
  • When an ice giant is killed, it melts down and the icicles disappear. This is similar to the death animation of the moss giant.
  • In the wilderness, the ice giants will lure players out of a safespot so that it can attack players if they do not retreat quickly enough.
  • Ice Giants appear to have a beating heart, this is unique among all giants.
