It's called take a dagger and sneak-stab him in the knee... twice. Then you have 1 dead giant and none of the others have even spotted you yet, and they aren't aggressive either. Enjoy.

I'm what you could call a "casual" mobile gamer.

They're pretty easy later on but they owned me so many times even when I was in my beast form. People kept telling me they got way easier with beast form but they took me out in three hits.

Now though at level 45, I can easily beat them with my super enchanted bow alone.

I just plugged in 30 hours this extended weekend into Skyrim. Still living by the "don't fight giants" rule :P

For whatever reason, Oblivion didn't connect with me, but Skyrim...

Skyrim is something I need, like eating.

I officially clocked in 104 hours into Skyrim before I ended up "beating" the game. Around the 95 hour mark I decided that I needed to stop playing all the side quests and just take care of the storyline.

I liked Oblivion, but there was something really enticing about Skyrim that just made me want to keep playing.

Ok I killed a giant I spammed home with a bow from far away! Yes! Terrible drop though...

I was pretty freaked out by the quest

House Of horrors

I haven't finished the whole thing yet but the first part is too creepy. Especially when your the only one awake in your house.

Am I the only one who loves to put buckets on guards' heads? And press "grab" on a random sword in a store and knock food off the table? haha

I use to do that a lot too it is fun and giants are a do avoid unless you can strategically take them out if your low level.
Besides that, once you become a higher level they are easier than most things you would commonly fight.

Also I was thinking a dark elf was better also, it is sooo ugly though
Shadowmere doesn't revive once he dies like in Oblivion. I think people said it revives in 15 ingame days in Skyrim though but I don't know if this is true or not.

I managed to kill a giant with a lvl 5 archer. Just kept shooting at them and running. It took a while, but I won.
