Giant Raiding is a Knight Order quest available during the events of The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall. The Agent is sent to kill a giant, known to have been raiding some of the region's farms.


After completing several quests for one of the ten Knight Orders of the Iliac Bay, the Agent will be accepted into said Order. From that point on they will have to make their way up the internal rank ladder to gain more lucrative and noteworthy quests, to improve their reputation.


  • Speak with a Quester from a joined Knight Order.
  • Journey to and enter the specified dungeon.
    • Track down and slay the giant.
  • Report back to the Quester before the time limit expires.


After gaining a fair amount of reputation within a Knight Order, the Agent will be asked to slay a giant. A Quester representing the Order states that the giant must be killed, for it has been "raiding farms and devouring cattle." With that, the Quester will tell the Agent where to find the giant: a nearby dungeon.

The Giant SlayerEdit

The Agent must journey to and enter the specified dungeon, before searching through the depths of the dungeon for the giant. It is possible that the Agent will encounter several giants during their search, supplemented by the usual collection of creatures and humanoids. Regardless, the Agent must eliminate the target giant, whose death will be confirmed when the Agent themself remarks:

"A bear claw brand is clearly visible on the upper arm of the giant. This must be the one [Quester's name] spoke of."
The Agent[src]

With the giant dead, the Agent must escape the dungeon and return to the Quester before the time limit expires.


The Agent will not receive any physical reward for completing the quest successfully, but will instead get a significant boost to their reputation within the region. The penalties for failing the quest remain true to a usual quest:

Faction Reputation
Specific Knight Order +7
Knight Order +5
Region +4
Peasants of Region +4
Nobles of Region +2
Other Factions +2
Faction Reputation
Knight Order -2
Specific Knight Order -2

  • Quest accepted


  • This quest is strikingly similar to two other quests in The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall:
  • NPCs have a selection of comments to make referencing the quest when asked for any news:
    • Acceptance:"Giants are not generally all that aggressive. But the one in [dungeon] sure is."
    • Success: "The [knightly order] saved [region] again. A [player's race] of their order killed the [dungeon] giant."
    • Failure: "I hear the [dungeon] giant moved down south. They must be cursing us there."
