Hill Giants of the Desert Plateau are a variation of the standard hill giant, where a small tribe of them can be found south-west of the Citharede Abbey. One lone hill giant wielding a hammer can be found directly south of the anvil on the plateau, who cannot be attacked with melee as he is out of reach.

They share the same drop table as their standard counterparts, but drop steel scimitars instead of steel longswords, and drop iron med helms instead of iron full helms.
