Upgrade greater giant vaults

Right now greater giant vaults are a joke. Or, to be exact, free artifacts, XP, loot and weapon marks.

The inhabitants don't see invisible, so any character with a source of invisibility (most would have one by this point) will have an easy time. Not that it's necessary. Also, they don't shrug bolts. And aren't all that tough in melee. I would hazard a guess that 99% of characters that can reach such vault can clean it with absolutely no risk.

Proposed solution: alter monster set so it includes titans. It would be in line with emperor liches or great wyrms in the other vaults.

and likewise, the Greater Undead Vaults are ridiculously onerous to clear.
Harder than level 50!

This would be a good change.

Agreed, GGV is a piece of cake for any char, way out of GUV league.

From the thread about new greater vaults, there is a giant vault suggested composed like this:

Greater giant lord vault: stone giant lord, fire giant king, frost giant berserker, frost giant jarl, titan, greater titan
This would probably be suitably difficult.

Or I suppose you could just sort of upgrade what is already existing:
Ogre lord -> Ogre king or ogre emperor
Hill giant/Stone giant -> Fire giant/Frost Giant
Fire giant -> Frost giant jarl
Frost giant -> Titan

Titans (not greater) as ultimate guardians for greater giant vaults are proposed in several different RFEs. This RFE is even more relevant now, when we have 2 guaranteed greater vaults in the game. In my last game they both were giant vaults. Kinda boring this way:(

+1 on this with addition of Ogre Emperors being a possible 4/5
