Clash of Clans Golem Summary
- The Golem is the fourth troop unlocked by the Dark Barrack.
- Golems with it’s massive amounts of hit points are the the most powerful ground tanking unit in the game. Upon death, the Golem splits into two smaller parts (Golemites) that continue to tank.
- Golems are immune to spring traps.
- Golems and Golemites do splash damage when they are destroyed.
- Similar to Giants, Golems target defensive structures first and will ignore all other types of enemy buildings and troops while any defenses remain on the battlefield. You can predict the path of a Golem because they will move to the next closest defense once a defensive structure is destroyed (Hidden Teslas will alter a Golems path). Golems will continue to target defenses even if they are under attack by enemy Clan Castle troops, heroes or Skeleton Trap skeletons (Like all troops that prioritize defenses, Golems do not consider the Clan Castle to be a defense regardless of whether or not it contains enemy troops.) Once all defenses are destroyed, Golems become like any other troop with no preferred target; they will attack the nearest building to them regardless of type, and will turn and attack enemy units if they become aware of any nearby.
Clash of Clans Golem Best Use
- Golems are the best meat shields in the game best used in front of Wizards and Witches.
- One Golem is a great troop to use along with heroes and a few wizards or wizards to destroy one portion of the base, destroy opponents Clan Castle Troops and if positioned closed to the edge, destroy the opponents Archer Queen. This strategy is often used in GoLavaloon or HoGoWiWi attacks.
Clash of Clans Golem Weakness
- Golems have very low damage per attack relative to their housing space which makes them ineffective to destroy a whole village on their own.
- Since Golems only target defensive structures and ignore everything else, this makes them very vulnerable to Clan Castle troops (especially air troops).
- Gets stuck on walls when it can’t reach a defense.
- Golems usually move ahead of other troops since they typically ignore perimeter structures and often times if released too close will provide limited coverage.
- They only attack ground making them vulnerable to flying troops in Clan Castle.
- Fairly expensive troop and takes some time to train and takes up a lot of housing space.
Clash of Clans Golem Upgrade Differences
- At level 1 and 2 the Golem is a light shade of gray.
- At level 3 and 4, the Golems rocky exterior changes to a darker gray.
- At level 5, the Golem body turns purplish gray with purple spikes along its back resembling stalagmites.
