Did not spawn after killing tainted.

Killed the tainted and corrupted did not spawn. Happened three times. This is stupid. Damned thing should pop every time.

Ok this got even more stupid. After the third tainted kill with no corrupted I got fed up and decided to run to the old location of the hill giant hill, in the southwest of the map, and on my way there I spotted the corrupted on tracking and tracked it to the Feerrott zone out. So go figure. So that means I probably wasted 2 tainted kills.

Just solo'd as a level 37 nec on Volak prog server. was not hard once snare landed. like all giants out here he is semi resistant to poison and null's just about every one of my disease dot casts. on third cast, snare landed and kiting was on. took about 900 mana from start to finish not counting regen.
nasty piece of work.

I had trouble taking him down. Had to run to Feerott because fight went south real fast. After 5 mins of healing,rebuffing and medding...I went back in to Rath Mts. He was waiting for me right inside zone.

The tainted and corrupted now spawn on giant hill in NE corner of zone, not the one in SW corner with the guard tower. There are only 3 hill giant PHs now, tainted spawned on the fourth round of clearing them. Corrupted popped as expected right after tainted. Cheers.
Not bugged, spawning fine

He's still spawning and I didn't have any trouble this evening. He spawned right after I killed the tainted hill giant and started trying to hit me. He also didn't despawn. It took about 35 minutes to get him spawned by killing the hill giants in the area.

I was farming hill giant toes today in rathe mountains and in about a half hour got 2 to spawn. This one seems to summon but does not give the "you have been summoned" text nor "You will not evade me..."

This mob once again did his disappearing act on me. Despawned before I could even target him. Was gonna try a quick hit with Burst of Flame but never had a chance. Thanks for fixing the problem SoE. Theres 4 hours Im never gonna get back.

On FV after killing the tainted, the corrupted deppoped after about 1 or 2 seconds. My advice is to get yourself in melee range and try and engage him that way.

The corrupted giant is still depoping but I was able to kill him and get the drop. After the tainted died, I quickly targeted the corrupted and cast a quick stun nuke. I chose stun since it casts in 1.5 seconds. After the nuke landed, it interrupted his depop and I killed him normally. Fact is he had very few hit points. I think around 4k.

Corrupted is BUGGED on Povar.

Killed the tainted soo many times and the corrupted didn't spawn directly on top of the tainted's body (like all the others). So I hit track right after killing the tainted... corrupted was up, hit track, within 2 seconds, I "lost my tracking target". I'm thinking with the froglok's move to Rathe and them moving the Hill Giants to the GM pally area, that when the tainted spawns, the corrupted spawns in the older part and since he isn't aggro'd right away, he depops or other NPC's (frogs maybe) kill him off fast.

Any word on this issue on other servers?

***EDIT*** Working as of Sept. 5, 2005!

On EMarr, I've killed several tainted recently in attempting to get my druid's epic done. Today, I killed one in the "new" HG area. Corrupted spawned on the corpse and despawned almost a quickly as I could target it. When the next one popped, I thought "what the heck" and pulled it back to the "old" HG area near the tower - same thing. :(

Both tries, I also had a ranger in a different part of the zone - it does not appear to be warping - just despawning.

Keep bugging it every time you try! Maybe it'll get fixed - I'd hope that it's not that big a coding task.

Yes, the corrupted does not seem to be spawning on Antonius Bayle either. I don't know if it shows on track. A guildie has whacked the Tainted a number of times, but never had the Corrupted spawm - the GMs said that it is timed; which is balderdash. Has been /bug a number of times.

It finally popped a short while ago.

The only difference seemed to be that the Tainted HG seemed to have more HP than the others.

Where does he spawn now?

They have moved all the Hill Giants to just one spot in the north east. I have killed the tainted 3 times and a friend has kille it like 8 times now and not a single corrupted has spawned.

Yep, he still spawns in the old area and is killed in under 2 seconds by the NPCs there. I submitted a /bug, so hopefully they'll fix it soon.

A friend of mine (he was lv. 64 at the time) decided to help me get my epic pieces early and dragged me off to take down this guy. Within about half an hour (I seem to be having good luck, everything's spawned in half an hour) he spawned and my friend took him down.

Seems to help that there were at least two groups pulling hill giants nonstop. Hope that helps some.

LOL only a dr00d would be such a moron. 214 with kei, unless he's in solid Wisdom gear, is twink. Do you know what a "twink" is? its where you use another character for equipment for a younger alt. You must be a moron if you think the average, starting completely from scratch with no equipment assistance whatsoever druid has 214 wis at lv 32.

I am gonna have to agree with Seeya on this one. I worked my tail off and managed 195 by level 30. so 214 is really not that fantastic a number. I would advise any druid looking to make the game easier later on to try as hard as possible to hit about 200 wis in the very early 30's and thats without KEI.

Err ... I kinda built my 36 Human Druid up from scratch and she's sitting on a total of 208 WIS. Thats without KEI , or any other magic buffers.. Just plain old WIS gear (mostly studded acrylia) I bought from hard earned loot.

can be soloed

My level 32 halfling druid with KEI making 214 WIS (whadda ya mean twinked?) was able to take both the Tainted and the Corrupted, although I did have to med kite a little towards the end. It took a little over 10 minutes, because Ensnare wore off when he had about 8% hp left. I snared him again, and them beat him to death.

There were two Tainteds running around simultaneously, so you never know when they will spawn.

Killed Him!!!

We killed the Corrupted Giant last night. Just a routine giant hunt, and our Warrior pulled the Tainted. None of us actually knew that the Tainted was PH for the Corrupted until I looked it up, but luckily we had all meded and buffed before this one. We were myself (30 Paladin), a 36 Druid, and a 36 Warrior. We were all way low on health and oom by the time we were done and I had to lay hands on the Warrior, but we did live through it. Unfortunately, the warrior accidentally looted the Ancient Stone before we realized it was for the Druid Epic...guess we'll have to go after it again...:) Anyways, Hope this info helps someone in deciding "to kill or not to kill" :) It was a hard fight, but if you're careful, this should prove that this guy can be taken down by a small group in the low-mid 30's, but always plan ahead! Happy Hunting All!!!

lol i remember when i was in my 30s and hunted here, every time a tainted hg would pop, lol our tanks were like, "inc a tainted hill giant" or "inc a corrupted hill giant" and we'd be like holy %#(@ ! those corrupted were especially annoying. ...the tanks we had didnt really seem to catch on that those could slaughter us...

I am level 49, I got the rock from the Corrupted Giant at level 32 in a Rathe group however at level 49 both the tainted, the corrupted , and everything in that zone is easily soloed. On Morell-Thule it is not uncommon for a Corrupted HG to spawn more than 20 times in a RL day. It depends on the number of regular Hill giants that are being killed and how often.
