The nightfall giant spawns at dusk, near the druid ring in West Commons. He looks just like a Hill Giant with the exception of the name.

Ok, just logged my drood last night to see if this guy still spawns, and well, yes, was first on track at druid ring.
Think he was near the road to Freeport (with gate and the two guards) when i spotted him.
Went down in no time.
Had 28pp + the head.

He he 3 years I was telling me "well, let's finish thess Ro armor quests..)

This is my first post ever and since ive only seen this guy once I figured id do it on him. I was omw to FP through WC when I just saw this guy run buy me. My first thought was "what the F*** is a HG doing in WC???" My second thought was "it wont be for long." Me being a 35 bard and in an open space like WC, I had absolutely no problem dealing with him. I cant tell you exactly how hard he hits cause he never touched me. Took about 3 mins maybe? Dropped the head which is 20lbs and is giant sized. Now that I have it maybe ill look into the greaves quest. Guess its back to work for me Smiley: boozing

In some parts of the zone they are quite rare, particualy the eastern zone line. However they are more common towards the western side of the zone and can be easily farmed for good PP. They drop around 15pp to even up to 50pp. Havent hunted HG's for a while so they may have been nerfed.

And he still has it in the graffic, but when you kill him he has no head. that would be just creepy. Like this mutant bats that drop 3 batwings.
is there a druid quest with this guy

I was in wc last night and i saw this guy on track so i said what the heck let me check him out. So i run over to him and see another druid killing him. No big deal so i help kill him and ask the druid why he killed him expecting him to say "i am twinking my pally out" or something to that effect. He tells me that something he drops is part of a no drop druid cloak quest. 4 wis and camoflouge. Is this true. If anyone has any info on this please post. Being a druid on rallos zek and having pretty close to full set of no drop this would help me out very much. The only reason i didnt ask him about the details was because he logged right after he told me.

Tonight in WC I entered the zone, immediately hit my macro

/auction WTB Nightfal Giant Head

Got a tell within minutes, bought it from a druid for 40pp. Not ten minutes later, I see a HG has popped. I send a tell to the druid to see if he can help me kill it, but before we get to it, someone else had. As soon as the HG died (this is about midnight game time BTW), the Nightfall Giant pops near the druid ring. Pretty sure the HG that spawns after 10 PM is the placeholder, otherwise that's a pretty big conicidence. There was a 34 pally in my guild in zone who looted this head, so all's well that ends well.

Anyways I was just about 3 backpack full of belts when I started after another orc when POP!! The Nighfall Giant was Dead in the middle of the camp with his back to me.. Well I stopped my Ideal of taking another Orcs Life (and belt) and awaited for it to Move on out.. Yep it coned Red to little old me so I left it alone :)

I zoned in from Kith last night and he was in the orc camp and agroed on me. A snare a few stinging swarms later he was down to a 3rd of life and I was oom so I started melee and finally got him to go down. I only had 1 bub of life left. He did have the head, 11p and some change. Conned yellow to me at 34. He might have been hit before I got there cause there were 3 corpses at his feet.
Spawning?

Ok, I decided to go after this guy for his head for the Greaves of Ro. I read up about him as much as I could and then got some people from my guild mates. Im a 36 paladin and had a 45 shaman, 41 ranger, and 30 paladin. However, the ranger left which was a pain since we no longer had a tracker. We decided the best plan would be to kill everything that roamed along the Northern edge of zone, and kill the griphs and hgs also. Well, in 3hrs RL time, we never fought one HG or griph, However we did keep the Northern edge of zone pretty clear. One thing we noticed was that Will O Wisps, not Willowisps, seemed to spawn and take the same path that the NF giant supposedly took. He didnt spawn the 1st or 2nd EQ night. However, he did spawn the 3rd EQ night, but nowhere near the EC zone or camps as the other posts claimed. We got some shouts that he was near the DR, but someone killed him before we had a chance to. I was kinda p'oed since we had been camping him for 3 RL hrs, and had been periodically shouting to see if anyone had seen him. Anyways, he didnt have the head when we got to him (might have been ninja looted). The thing i wanted to point out was that he DIDNT spawn near EC zone or derv/orc camp like some of these posts claim. He in fact does spawn near the druid ring, as the Allakhazam description states. BTW, were going after it again this weekend, anyone have some good tips??

This thing bit me tonight - 46 Enchantress- took less mana than an HG to kill so I do not think it is as hard as is made out to be. Since I am enc I am going to finish the quest I guess. Killed near derv camp while on my way to Kith.

Hunting Info
# Sep 08 2000 at 12:53 AM Rating: Decent
I have hunted the Night Fall giant several times. The best strategy for getting him to spawn seems to be to kill everything that moves in the zone. I have yet to hear of a confirmed Place Holder, but probably one of the Griffons or Giants.
The giant spawns very near the EC zone on the green side at 3:00 am game time. I have also heard that he will spawn at 6:00 am, but have not seen this myself. I have watched him spawn from a hill overlooking the zone several times at 3:00. I have not seen him spawn in any of them camps although I am sure he does go by or through there if no one is waiting for him when he spawns. He is very aggressive and hits hard. I have seen him kill a 50th level warrior and a 36 bard. Conversely with a good group in the 30's or higher, he can be killed fairly easily. He does drop the skull for the Ro Armor Greaves, but not everytime, as I know to my sorrow. My guild helped me hunt him for over a week whenever we had time and the one time we killed him he did not drop the skull. Another time, a different party butted in on the kill and then tried to sell me the skull for 200pp. At that point I had had enough and stopped hunting the Night Fall Giant. Hope this helps.
Spawn point
# Aug 25 2000 at 3:08 PM Rating: Default
kinda funny but the spawn point is dead center of the orc camp. wanders along and just about the farthest ive seen him make it was just beyond the derv camp then he was killed
Spartan one? wow...
# Aug 04 2000 at 6:25 PM Rating: Decent
Have seen these guys several times, always looking like a regular HG...inneresting about the spartan one...did you kill it? Drop anything interesting?
