What have you found?
<Researcher Aderan listens to your findings.>
The runes for "north" and "west" appeared multiple times? There's a highly reinforced command to move in that direction, but the runes are more than propulsion. Something is attracting them, but what?
Giants are soloable only with high DPS or good kiting. However, by using the companion stone giant elemental from 'The Rune of Command', kiting is a whole lot easier. The elemental has a 4 second stun with a short CD, hits hard and with proper threat management, can tank the giant while you heal up. Beware of the giants that have a shadow buff. Their DPS is significantly higher.
Megalith spawns to north-east of the base and killing him can be way easier than facing the other giants as he does not have the stacking Dot that the others have. He also have a pretty fast respawn time which makes the quest easy for soloing. Note that you'll have to kill him 5 times to complete the chain, so if he takes too much out of you, bring a friend along and kill the regular giants.
Sage Edan and Camp Winterhoof wants you to use the Runeseeking Pick on the corpses of 4 Runed Stone Giants.

To the east, at Giants' Run, rune-inscribed stone giants have started to migrate north toward Frostblade Peak. I know nothing of their goals, nor of their destination.
The glowing runes inscribed in the stone flesh of the giants guide them on their journey. Fell some of these giants.
Take this pick with you and use it on the corpses of the runed stone giants. It will deactivate the runes. Once you've tested enough giants, return to me with your findings.

The runes for "north" and "west" appeared over and over? I'm not an expert in these runes, but the repetition suggests a strong command.
These carvings are more than passive directions, though. They seem to pull the giants towards something, but what?
With a kiting class, there is an easy way to solo this quest. Complete the quest in the same area up to . YOu will need to command a Stone Giant of yours to complete it. The Stone Giant will aggro and attack other mobs, including the Runed Stone Giants.
Kite and let your Stone Giant attack the elites. They hit for about 200 damage, and will bash occasionally, allowing you to hit the Runed Stone Giant or heal.
