Location of the Fire Giant
In Gielinor, there are many locations where Fire Giants can be found.
There are two common locations where Fire Giants can be killed: Stronghold Slayer Cave (cannon-able) and Catacombs of Kourend (AFK slayer).
Additionally, players can enter the Karuulm slayer dungeon, the Waterfall dungeon, the Smoke dungeon, and the Brimhaven dungeon.
In general, though, you’ll want to stick to either the Stronghold Slayer Cave or Catacombs of Kourend as these are the easiest locations to reach and offer extra benefits such as dwarf cannons and totem pieces (Catacombs of Kourend).
The Stronghold Slayer Cave can be easily reached by teleporting to the Gnome Stronghold with any spirit tree.
With a Xeric’s Talisman or the Kourend Castle Teleport, you can easily reach the Catacombs of Kourend.
There are two fire giant locations in the Catacombs of Kourend. It features two zones, one that allows safespotting from a distance and one that is multicombat and perfect for AFK training with overheads.
There are two locations in the catacombs located on the western side. There are rocks blocking the pathway in the multicombat zone, so you’ll need a pickaxe. The vines at the skeletons are what you climb down for the single combat zone.
(Strategy for Fighting Fire Giants)
There are no weaknesses to Fire Giants, so you can choose between melee, ranged, or magic.
If your stats allow you to, Melee is a better choice since you will be able to output the highest DPS.
You could use ranged if you are a lower level as there are a lot of safe spots where you can slay fire giants.
Slayer experience from Fire Giants is good since they’re not difficult to kill, don’t have any special mechanics, and are easy to kill.
How valuable are Fire Giant tasks?
The Fire Giants are a tedious task to obtain because they drop virtually nothing (except the rune scimitar), but they provide a lot of slayer experience, so it’s not a bad idea to do it.
If you use a cannon in the Stronghold Slayer Cave, you will be able to complete this task quickly and gain a ton of experience. You can also choose to do this as an AFK task by using the Catacombs of Kourend’s protect from melee option.
If you have an altar in your POH with a Kourend Castle teleport (which should be the goal of EVERY training slayer, for more information, check out our OSRS Slayer Guide), then you will not need prayer potions, as you can constantly return back to your home to recharge your prayer.
The catacombs of Kourend offer the prayer restoration effect on buried big bones that enables this method of burying large bones (each big bone buried will restore two prayer points).
Setup for Fire Giant Gear
Melee gear setup
Because Fire Giants are weak to every type of weapon, you can use whatever DPS you need.
If you are a mid-game ironman you can use a dragon scimitar, or if you are a main account you can use a whip or rapier.
Fortunately, these can hit very hard, so we recommend either maximizing the prayer bonus with proselyte and using overheads or going for some tank legs (barrows legs, assets) in combination with a torso or better.
You may be able to go in with full rune, but you will have to restock frequently as you will have to teleport constantly.
Suitable gear setup:
You should opt for the maximum DPS as you’ll have no problem spotting the fire giants with ranged weapons.
Drop Table for Fire Giants
Fire Giants drop 713 GP on average, according to OSRS WIKI.
Fire Giants has an hourly profit of 21k GP. According to OSRS Wiki.
It’s no secret that Fire Giants don’t have a great drop table.
Among the best drops are:
- Blade of the Rune
- Battlestaff of Fire
A herb drop table is also available.
Ironmen can use ensouled giant heads to boost through early prayer levels. Fire Giants drop quite a few ensouled giant heads, which aren’t as valuable to main accounts, but they can be useful for boosting through early prayer levels for ironmen.
It is possible to drop an Ancient Shard and a dark totem piece from Fire Giants when they are killed in the Catacombs of Kourend.
