Frost Giants are rare creatures, most seem to be located in the frozen Forgotten Vale during The Elder Scrolls V: Dawnguard. They are more powerful than common giants and have double the amount of health.

A unique frost giant, named Karstaag is encountered on the island of Solstheim. Karstaag appeared during The Elder Scrolls III: Bloodmoon and later during The Elder Scrolls V: Dragonborn.

During the events in Dawnguard, five frost giants can be encountered in specific locations in the Forgotten Vale, as part of the quest "Touching the Sky."

Description[edit | edit source]

Frost Giants stand between 11 and 12 feet tall. They have a white-blue tint, horned head with four eyes and armed with claws. Their deep breathing often gives their presence away, as with normal giants and trolls.

Frost Giants are typically passive like ordinary Giants, but are fiercely territorial and won't hesitate to attack anything that ventures too close. After being killed, they will not respawn.
