The Golem is a melee unit and the fifth unit to be unlocked in the campaign. It costs 75 gems to summon one. They are first encountered in 3-2, and can first be summoned in 3-3. If the player looks closely you sometimes can see one in level 2-7 rolling over a Wolf.
The Golem is very aggressive when encountered. He slowly pounds his targets with his fists, but the attacks cause a large amount of damage to the target. He is also immune to any status effect such as poison, burn and freeze. The main function of the Tier 1 to 3 golem is offensive, rolling into the enemy lines, easily making the golem able to take out the enemy castle defense with just 1 roll when fully upgraded. The second function later in the game is to act as a tank to defend the player's units, making the golem a very useful unit to protect the player's Elves and Wizards. The second function counts more when he reaches Tier 4, at which point his roll special gets changed to the earthquake. The golem is great against groups but has some weakness against fast hitting specials like the Skully's Twister or the Werewolf's special. Golems (like many units) are extremely weak against Reaps. His special attack is the same for all five tiers: smashing the monsters with its fists.
Quite good all around and for a decent price too. They are however quite slow. Golems have high hp and defense. The player can upgrade this stats in the Armory.
