The golem stands taller than a two-story building, a crude and blocky humanoid shape of ice that glows with an unsavory sanguine aura.  Clouds of frozen blood and bits of viscera are trapped in its frosty depths.  All are lifeless and still save for a single preserved organ at the golem's core: a humanoid heart.  The heart is shrouded in a swirl of slushy red fluid and, impossibly, it pulses with a sluggish, uneven beat, giving off coruscations of sanguine light.

Hunting Strategies

General Advice
  • Like many other creatures of this type, these golems' high amount of health and immunity to being killed by lethal crits is offset by low DS. This makes flurries of unaimed attacks such as assault techniques or mstrikes backed up by Two Weapon Combat, assault techniques or mstrikes using unarmed combat, or repeated attacks backed up by Celerity (506) relatively effective.
  • These golems take additional damage from fire, though the exact mechanics of how aren't known at the time of this writing.
  • Weapon techniques and combat maneuvers that knock golems prone and inflict Staggered, like Twin Hammerfists, Sweep, or Tackle, can often stall out golems since their combat rounds are fairly slow and they don't have high SMR defense.

Major Elemental Wave (435)
