A notable variety of skeleton, Giant skeletons generally have significantly higher Combat levels and drop big bones. They have two graphical versions, one with a square shield and sword, and the other with a round shield and axe. These skeletons are found in the Shadow Dungeon.

Level 80 giant skeletons can be found in the Shadow Dungeon, which can be accessed using a ring of visibility at a certain point during the Desert Treasure quest. They are similar to the giant skeleton found in Tarn's Lair, but differ in some ways, such as their examine text and their drops.

Training

The Shadow Dungeon giant skeletons (level 80) are good for semi-high levels to train on. Bringing Guthan's or even food to heal make them good experience. Crumble Undead is a powerful spell against skeletons and other undead for mages. Also, if you have the Salve amulet, you get 15% Attack and Strength bonuses, which makes killing these very efficient if using Melee.

To effectively maximise your training experience if Melee'ing, either stand in the centre of the south-west area by the entrance, or run eastward past the first corridor (past the second batch of giant skeletons) and go north into the nook and stand in the middle.
