Elite Giant

aka Great Giant Warrior

Elite Giant


Senior soldiers of the army of Giants which invaded Drangleic long ago.
Far larger and more formidable than their subordinates, the only Elite Giants to have survived the war reside in a hidden cavern in Black Gulch.
The two obelisk sized stone clubs wielded by an Elite Giant can reduce flesh to paste and bone to powder.
This mountain of a foe is beyond all but the mightiest of warriors… or the most bottomless of ammunition stockpiles.

  • Using a Bonfire Ascetic on the first Black Gulch bonfire will respawn the giants but they won't drop the Soul of a Giant.
  • Poison works well against these giants.
  • For pure melee, try aggroing one at a time and getting behind it. They will spam a wide swing that hits everything in front of them but you will be free to go at them from behind.
  • Their attacks can still inflict massive damage no matter what shield you are using.
