Upgrades

BTNHardenedSkin.png
Hardened Skin
Reduces all attacks on the Mountain Giant by 12 damage. Attacks cannot be reduced below 3 damage. 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.

BTNResistantSkin.png
Resistant Skin
Gives Mountain Giants increased resistance to spell damage. 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.
