It is said that sobbing was sometimes heard coming from this lair. The Giant seemed to be a sensitive person...
The Giant didn't like the Hand of the King, and the Hand of the King didn't like the Giant. But they did agree on one point: nobody liked the Alchemist.
The Giant came often to the bottom of the Cave to recharge. Nothing beats a good lava bath.

Cavern flag

The Guardian's Haven is a second boss biome exclusive to the Rise of the Giant DLC. The room consists of a chunk of land surrounded by lava. The room starts with a platform over the lava, but it vanishes as soon as the Giant emerges.

General information[]

Access and exit[]

The Guardian's Haven can be accessed from either the Cavern, which is the natural route, or from the Forgotten Sepulcher. The path from the Sepulcher requires 2 BSC active, as it is locked behind a door close to the Clock Room exit, and only becomes available after beating the Giant once.

There are four exits out of the Guardian's Haven. The first exit leads to High Peak Castle,the Derelict Distillery, and the Infested Shipwreck.TQatS The fourth exit leads to the Throne Room and grants two Scrolls of Power for skipping one level.

Boss Stem Cell[]

Defeating the Giant with 4 BSC active will award the player the 5th Boss Stem Cell.

Level characteristics[]


When 3 Boss Stem Cells are active, the Giant will drop 3 Scroll Fragments, and when 4/5 Boss Stem Cells are active, he will drop 4 Scroll Fragments.
