Make Iron Golem from Pride, get Might Merc with Infy, use either Hoto if you are doing regular runs or Beast if you are doing Ubers.

When you reset your skills / stats your Iron Golem dies.



yes.. even if you use shield or item with iron golem. the golem will die

usless you use faith merc. beast golem would be best choise.. cuz then you can choose what even vepon you like. and beast is non ladder, cheaper to remake if dies. for summon necro.

infy merc, iron golem from beast. use hoto or king leoric wand.
or maybe skill your necro as hybrid
d web, infy merc, iron golem beast.

I always liked using an Insight for Iron Golem. I put an Eth Pride Thresher or Giant Thresher on my might mercenary. I used a Beast War Axe on my Necro. I used him to MF since he was fun to play. The only area I didn't try was Uber Trist, but he cleared everything else with ease.

Pride > Beast
Infinity too good to pass up
Golem shouldnt die with 30 summons around it and easy repositioning with tele

I prefer going inidty iron golem that way he has some cb and can do phys dmg plus u get conv arua from it and then merc u go ebotd wp... use beast as ur wep... conc isnt really needed plus the shattwring corpses from pride sorda sucks.... 1 other option would be infy merc and then either eth death for iron golem or ebotd... ebots gives good dmg and leech death would give high cb and ds

botd golem would still blow hard and do less dmg than a skeleton.

death is ok i guess due to CB an the way DS stacks up with crit strike on minions(but its 5% ....) but a 0.1 fg IK maul is prlly still better especially with dual shaels at helping to take down bosses/high hp targets

golem's only purpose is to be a aura slave. A shame cuz its such an interesting/original concept for a minion but so much wasted potential.

Eth death is cool for the cb but.ik maul would work... also eth tomg reaver with 3x bers maybe i still say infy is best qnd then act 2 might merc can rock ebotd wp/guills face/ and either fort or 160/60 armor not sure what break point is but yea ur merc would hit stupid hard... im not the biggest fan of pride on summoners ... i belive might from merc/amp/ fana from.beast and then CE eith high radius shreds p8 games anyways so i use iron golem for either conviction, cb or cheap version is insight but i prefer either the infi, death or etomb with 3x bers... the etomb is cool with 60cb nice res decent dmg and 60ias

agree

iron golem DO NOT do much dmg.. no matter what item you use..
aura items is your best options..

Pride
Beast
insight
Infy

i would recomend infy merc+ beast golem. hoto/king leoric(or 3 sum +3 raise skells 2s wand)

I personally DON'T use Pride golem because the freeze target mod often destroys one of the first corpses.
I would say go for an insight or beast(if u are not holding one yourself)
