The gold golem is a second-level creature of the Academy in Heroes of Might and Magic IV.

With generous hit points, excellent spell resistance, and above-average damage, the gold golem makes a fine screening army. A slow adventure map movement and low combat speed keeps this army at home when the hero values swiftness over tanking ability.

In addition to their value as a screening unit, gold golem are more than able to take a proactive role against creatures that charge the rear line. While swifter than dwarves, they are not well-suited to charging across the battlefield. Do not be afraid, however, to let them meet the opponents halfway.

Abilities Edit

The gold golem will resist 75% of the offensive spells targetting him. Likewise, he will only take 1/4 damage from direct damage spells cast his way.

Mechanical creatures are not affected by morale, or by spells or abilities that only work on living creatures.
