Description

Transforms a metallic item into a golem that gains the properties of the item.

The
Iron Golem
's strength lies in his Thorn Damage. This Golem is very powerful against Melee attackers.

Iron Golems can be constructed from non-magical items. You will receive the additional Damage listed on weapons or the Defense listed on Armor. Currently, you do not receive the damage benefit for using two-handed weapons.

Save powerful Rare and Magical Items you don't wish to sell, use or trade to create Iron Golems. Some magical item properties are not transferred to the
Iron Golem
, such as "Chance to find Magical Items" and "Mana Steal".

You can only create
Iron Golem
from metal items, and you cannot make them from Clubs, Wands, Crystal Swords, Gloves, Belts, Throwing Weapons, Staves, Bows, Crossbows, Quest Items, Jewelry, Leather Armors and Leather
Boots
.

Iron Golem
can gain the abilities of Socketed Gem weapons.

When you create an
Iron Golem
out of an Ethereal Item the
Iron Golem
is translucent.

Iron Golem
remains over saved games.


How does
Iron Golem
work with
Iron Maiden
?
Both damages are applied separately.

Lore

While many mages spend their lives devoted to studying the transmutation of base metals into gold, the Necromancers have always had a somewhat different approach to transforming metals.

Through complicated arcane rituals and great mental concentration, a Necromancer can summon forth a Golem from common base metals.

The construct takes on the properties of the original source material, including any magical effects or other properties the original metal might have possessed.

Prevent Monster Heal cannot be inflicted by a Mercenary or
Iron Golem
, only the player.

Iron Golem
is normally immune to poison with 100% poison resist, and 50% lightning resist. But making
Iron Golem
from an item with 50% lightning resist and 50% all resistances from level 6
Summon Resist
would increase these to 150% Poison and Lightning Resist, making it Immune to lightning also.

If you skill reset with an
Iron Golem
active it disappear. Counter this issue by equipping an item with
Iron Golem
charges. Like
Metalgrid
or Oath.

Iron Golem
made from Delirium can morph into
Bone Fetish
much like the character, and the effects are exactly the same.

Iron Golems can have auras when created from items such as Infinity, Dream, Insight, Beast, etc which can be a tremendous boost to your army!

Just be aware that for whatever reasons the golem can despawn (as in not-dead-just-vanished).

Because of that only use what you can afford loosing.

In SP if your golem bug-despawn you can use Hero Editor to "make justice" for yourself and recreate the base item back.

Also note that Iron Golems only persist between games when cast by the Necromancer's skill. (i.e. not by an item's charge)
