Golem Troubles

Postby Nacho » Tue Jun 26, 2001 3:06 pm

I'm having a lot of trouble killing the golems in the Windspear Hills level.

No matter what I do or use I can't damage them. I have +3 weapons, cast Slay Living and tried all the hints listed on this site but I can't do a single thing to them.

Help!

Cloudkill will hurt Adamite Golems if you do not have +4 (I Think) weapons

+3 Weapons should work. I used Lilarcor on him, and though I only did 2-4 damage with each hit, I got him eventually.

I've tried +3 and +4 weapons on the iron and stone golems with no luck. Nothing seems to affect them. It seems like a bug. Cloudkill doesn't work either. The Iron golem casts cloudkill on itself and never gets damaged.

I don't know what else to do.

It must be a bug, if +4 weapons won't even affect stone golems.

I think Mr. Snow was referring to the wand of cloudkill, which ignores magic resistance and therefore can kill almost anything.

Chocolate Golems are the worst - they can only be damaged with hot +5 butter knives.
Unless of course you have a wizard slayer, whose main special abilty is sucking :)
At the risk of being helpful (unlikely) have you tried talking to the critters in the room outside the golem area? They fight, then go through some dialog and leave. Sometimes things are invulnerable until a dialog thread is concluded.

Since those Iron/Adamente are so big, they cannot fit through doorways. I beat then using that to my advantage. Send out one fighter or fast npc/pc and lure them to a small doorway that they cant get through (plenty of them in Windspear) then get a mage and make shure he can cast Melf's Minute Meteor's. They are considerd +5 weapons. The other golems you should be able to take by using brut force. Or you can use Melf Meteors on them to :)
