Moss Giants: Misc

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

Moss giants are fairly large creatures that live in the RuneScape world. They are weak to fire spells. Moss giants are popular for training, especially on free-to-play worlds. This is because they are one of the few creatures that drop big bones. They also have a fairly high amount of hitpoints (providing 240 xp for an attack style that focuses on one skill and 79 Hitpoints xp for the level 42 Moss Giants).

The Moss giant also once held the position of Strongest monster in RuneScape, but this was in RuneScape Classic, when they had a combat level of 62. They are sometimes given out by Vannaka as Slayer assignments. Food is highly recommended for lower levelled players. Moss giants respawn approximately every 30 seconds, depending on the server's popularity. Once players reach level 85, the level 42 Moss Giants will stop being aggressive.

Other drops


  • A Moss giant bone, which differs from the usual big bones dropped by Moss giants, are rare drops after completion of the first part of the Rag and Bone Man quest. It is one of the items in the wish list for the second part of the quest. This bone cannot be buried.
  • There are 2 Slice of cake spawns on the moss giant island near Brimhaven, and on uncrowded worlds, this can often make extra food unnecessary.
  • There is a pipe that players can access at level 51 Agility right next to Vannaka for easy access to moss giants if they are given as a slayer assignment. Though they give only 60 experience in this area, it is still a popular place for players to train the Slayer skill.
  • Moss Giants are good for training especially for F2P players hence their low combat level and their high hitpoints, making 240 experience for each moss giant.
  • When they're killed, they "melt" to the ground, similar to the Ice giant.
  • Even though they drop more items they are less popular than Hill giants.
  • If you look closely, their examination of the Moss Giant is true - you can see the Beard twitching and curling even when the Moss Giant itself wasn't moving.
