A Giant Step Walkthrough

This quest begins directly after the completion of The Lost Giants quest. This will also unlock the Swamp (Location) if it wasn't previously accessible.


Reach the Swamp

The Swamp (Location) can be found when you exit your currently location. It is located left of Caer Hyfryd towards the western region of the map. Travel to the swamp to complete this objective. 


Find the Missing Giants 

Once you reach the Swamp, you may be attacked by a horde of Orcs if they haven't been previously cleared out. Note which Orcs have ranged attacks such as the Archer and the Shaman. The Shaman in particular has the ability to cast Lighting, so if you can, clear out the Shamans first to decrease damage intake. Clear the Orcs in the area then cross the swamps where the broken up wooden platforms are. There will be a tree to knock down to act as a bridge. Interact with it and continue to cross. You may need to use an arrow or any other ranged attack to reach it. This will trigger a tutorial.

  • Tutorial - Remote Triggers: Most of these interactable objects can be triggered from a distance by using a ranged weapon like a bow, crossbow, or even a dart. You can also use attack cantrips. Remember, though, you still have to hit your target to trigger it. 

Use the wooden platforms to reach the knocked over tree and cross the swamp. 

Track the quest to be able to view the location of the objective marker. You'll be following the marker north until. At the last platform you will come across a torch. From here, take the rock platforms to the left to finish crossing. There will be a Shack in the area that you can loot. Following the marker north further will unlock the River and eventually, the Forge Camp on your map. Follow the sets of torches to reach the camp. Entering the camp will unlock the Forge Camp Waypoint on your map. If not previously unlocked, entering this location may unlock the quest, The Swamp Base depending on your relation standing with the Forge. As you approach you will trigger a cutscene. Persuade Hasdrubal to release the captive giant, Rugan and this will clear the objective.

Return to Gartok

Finally, you cam return to The Verdant Valley and speak to Gartok again to complete the quest and continue the questline by starting the Ugly Truth. With Rugan in your party, you may need to find an alternative way back by heading west. Make your way west across the wooden platforms. Your adventerers may pass through the cliff's edge, but Rugan can continue to take the larger wooden platforms.  This will take you to the west exit of the swamp where you can exit and return to Gartok. Exiting will trigger a cutscene with Rugan. He will meet you at the valley.
