Kunark expansion info: The forest giants of Kunark are unique in that they are susceptible to stuns, including the mesmerize line of spells from enchanters. Ancients drop a number of items including Giant foremans Tunics, Giant Lord's Tunics and various large axes. The ones who are higher then level 44 also have a chance to drop level 50+ spells.

Been camping the fort for 2 weeks now, looking for Necro pet spell: Minion of Shadows. No luck yet.
Have had Enc, Shm, Dru, & Bst spells drop easily along with 2H Axes plus tunic.
The Named Giants are the only ones that I have had trouble slowing.
What I need to know, is there a cycle that the spells go in
Would like to retier my lvl 48 pet :)

Here is some info on the BW version of these MOBs.

Forest giant fort in BW. 2 at the front ramp, can be any type, arbor, ancient, and sometimes the named. Inside are about 6 giants, also can be any including the named. Pathing is a bit odd when trying to pull out of the fort itself if you are trying to swarm kite, so it is best not to try to kite around the berm outside the fort until you get them into a group..The best way I have found is to make smaller circles in front of the ramp to get them all together. Pulling singles is very easy, if you have taken out the ramp spawns, run up and tag one of the giants near the front, and you will not get aggro from the others unless your "friend" runs by one, but I never saw that happen when I was there. The front part of the berm area near the ramp can be tricky because there are quite a few wanderers there, such as the various sarnaks and tatterback apes, so it is best to take your pull around near the back of the fort because it is relatively clear there. All the wanderers I saw were a good distance away so it is pretty safe there. Drops were pretty decent, in fact, I had to destroy quite a few of the vendor fodder weapons like the weighted axe and axe of the ironback because I hade 3 backpacks full of gems or various type, a treeweave, and giant lord's tunic. The giants drop anywhere from 7g to about 5p per. After selling and converting the coinage to platinum, I ended up with about 450p or so for my troubles, but I did keep the treeweave to sell later, so probably around 800p all told. The giants gave around 1% per kill, and the named gave me about 2%
at level 51. Excellent place to hunt, I recommend it highly

I saw a post under one of the beastlord links that made a comment that pets that stun can stun mobs that are otherwise immune to stun. Anyone confirm that?

Yes, it can stun unstunnable mobs, but not stun immune mobs.

All Giants are unmezzable and unstunable. They can be charmed rather easy though. Even the giants in Frontier Mountains are unmezable/unstunable and they are 10 or so levels below these. About the 51 mage being able to solo these, yes you can. I have a 51 Beastlord and these drop rather easy. Good cash loots off them as well as pp drop.

Where can I find the "forest giant ancient"?

Is he always in one particular place?
Does anyone have any information on what to expect when I go hunting him? (ie: place holders, mobs that are constantly with it, etc..)

Spawn at the Giant Fort in Burning Woods (along with the verdant and arbor variety). Very common spawn, just keep killing to keep the cycle going. (pardon the spelling)

#Anonymous, Posted: Oct 29 2001 at 9:26 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Someone asked if Mage can kill these at 51. I am a 50 Mage, and I kill Ancients and Verdants all day. BIII and DS pet. Send in. Wait 5 seconds. Cast a Bolt. Sit and let pet finish fight. all done.
#Anonymous, Posted: Oct 21 2001 at 3:01 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) all i've really heard is druids getting this stuff and i meet a lvl 54 rogue and i was thinking isnt this good for rogues and would it be easy for a rogue to solo 1 of these i mean with RB (ragebringer) you can hit for a LOT of dam like about 251 in 1 hit. well if anyone has 1 to give away my name is Rinolis on Prexus server give me a tell.

Forest Giants and Mez?

I've was hunted in Burning Woods only once but, during my time there, noticed something strange: I was able to mez and/or stun the various Forest Giants there.
No other type of giant or cyclops is able to be mezzed (at least not in my experience) so it leaves me wondering if this just some sort of bug or glitch... Has anyone else tried to mez these guys and, if so, was it successful?

Also, there have been a few patches since I was there so they may have changed it....

Yes you can Mezz them and Stun them.
Been there for 2 days killing whatever walks by and we have mezzed and stunned these big brutes a number of times.
Really would like some spells to drop though. :o)
Just my Experience.

not sure about mezzes but stuns i do know...
# Dec 30 2001 at 9:46 PM Rating: Default
i have seen them mezzed/stunned.. or so the message says "A forest giant has been stunned"... the probelem is that they really arent... it just makes them more mad at you.... im not that sure if they're mezzable... they might be and the message might say they're mezzed.. but I really doubt they reall are.
-currently level 51...

Some giants you might be able to mess. My experience in DL is that forest giant craig's are immune to mez.(this spell will not take hold on target) weird maybe it is certain zones.

As a cleric I use my stun damage spell when the darkness runs out so the sk can recast, and they do get stunned for a fair amount of time also. The only resist a few times. Been camping the fort in BW a long time and only a few spells drop. I've had better luck for spell drops in SF zone right by BW.

I've been soloing these for a few nights now and can take them down fairly easily using a dot combo of; Winged Death x2, Drones of Doom x3, Breath of Ro x1, and one initial Engulfing Roots to keep them still. The total combined DoT effect of the above mentioned is like 4674 dmg (which includes the 160DD on root) in about 4 minutes total. The named giant is closer to 6000 HP's max. All in all I've had zero luck with a Tree Weave (why I'm camping these) but great luck on spells.

hmmm call me a newbie, but since druid dots take about 1.5 to 2 mins to complete, how can you dot it 7 times with a magic dot in 4 mins????

i didnt think they stacked, that would make ES vambs WAY WAY too powerfull.......EI: keep on casting the dot till mobs was dead more or less

if you realy got 7 dots in in 4 mins id say that a nice trick and id like to learn it for my low lvl druid so when he gets higher ill be able to kill everything in the world :)

Our dots take 1 min., he put 2 of his higher lvl dots and 2 of his lower dots, ro stacks with drifting~Winged series.
