This article or section contains lore taken from Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos, Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne, the manuals, and official bonus maps.

These monstrous creatures, crafted by the Titans when the world was young, are composed of living stone and stout flora. Benevolent and solitary by nature, the mountain giants have awakened to find that the tranquil world they once helped to shape has become a hectic battlefield of fire and sorrow. Now the mountain giants have pledged their courage and strength to the night elves' cause -- and stand ready to banish the last remnants of the Burning Legion from the world. These massive melee units that can take incredible amounts of punishment from attackers.

100 Gold 175 Lumber Ancient of Lore Tree of Eternity, Ancient of Wonders 40 sec.

This means that lower units can't really damage him. You will need to use Tier 3 units such as Tauren, Knights, Bears, and Abominations.

Resistant Skin (Passive)

PASBTNResistantSkin.png
Gives Mountain Giants increased resistance to spell damage.
Research Cost Researched At Requirements Upgrade Time
50 Gold 100 Lumber Ancient of Lore Tree of Eternity, Ancient of Wonders 75 sec.

This gives the unit hero magic resistance, similar to the resistance that level 6+ creeps have.
Namely, you can't be Polymorphed, Possessed, etc, and all offensive spells have a shorter duration on the target (such as stuns, Ensnare, etc).
It DOES NOT reduce damage dealt to the target, however. That’s an effect of hero armor, not hero magic resistance.
