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

At the giant fort in Burning Woods: mostly I have been pulling the two at the ramp, then grabbing other mobs as they pass by. Does anyone know if you can single pull the giants that are inside the fort? There are a lot of them there, and I don't want to pull one only to have a half dozen come gunning for me.

I had no problem doing it, started with the one to the right and after the one to the left. Be carefull with the one indside the house, there are actually two and the other will agro if you pull from there.

They can SOMETIMES be found in the top North East Corner, of this zone, at the giant camp. There is a fixed camp of 3 giants. You can pull 1 giant at a time with bow with a 125 range or better. The place holders are A Forest Giant Arbor, which is the common spawn. If you keep killing the giants in this camp, eventually, A Forest Giant Verdant will spawn. Hope this helps.

#Anonymous, Posted: Apr 01 2001 at 12:46 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Lucky indeed. I have killed several of these buggers and the only thing I ever got other than coin was a research component.
#Anonymous, Posted: Jul 06 2001 at 7:49 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Hmm, I must be doing something wrong. I've dropped several dozen of these and gotten nothing but cash, some cheesy rings and a fire opal.
