Special Notes[]

Any zone with giants is an acceptable zone in which to find the quest starter idols. The Thundering Steppes and Nektulos Forest are both excellent places for lower level characters to begin hunting, but Everfrost, Permafrost, and Solusek's Eye giants will also work.

These idols are a body drop - so make sure to loot the corpse. Drop rate when mentored down is quite good. Drop rate when greyed out is extremely rare. This has been tested multiple times.

2/17/2019: I note the previous comment about grey-mobs not dropping the idol and how it's been tested multiple times, but at level-66 I got 4 of my 5 idols from the lowly lvl-26/27 Firerock Giants in the Thundering Steppes, all in about 15mins. I killed maybe twenty giants to get them.

5/26/19 Same. Thundering Steppes gave me all 5 in 10 minutes, as a 110.

7/31/2020: Took me a little over 100 kills at lvl 32 in Thundering Steppes to get all the idols.

5/9/2021: I am level 93. I have killed over 100 giants in Thundering Steppes. I have attained zero idols.
