Golems are a type of Giant Humanoid Enemy in Elden Ring. They are massive and intimidating constructs created to protect and guard against intruders, wielding their massive weapons. Though large, their weakness is their low mobility and their ankles, which will topple them with ease.

 

 

Golem Location in Elden Ring

Where to find Golems:

  • A Halberd Golem is hiding around the ruins at the west of Stormhill. This one is inactive and will immediately wake up and begin attacking when provoked.(Doesn’t respawn) (Map Link)
  • An Archer Golem can be found guarding the entrance to Ainsel River Well in the east side of Liurnia of the Lakes, to the east of the Church of Vows. (Doesn’t respawn)
  • An Archer Golem is guarding the entrance to Castle Morne.(Doesn’t respawn)
  • Two Golems and one Archer Golem can be found on the bridge to Divine Tower of Limgrave (They DO respawn, good for farming Golem's Halberd) (Map Link)
  • A Golem can be found at the east of Caelid at the bottom of a cliff by going to the east from the Minor Erdtree (DRAGONBARROW). This one is unique as it wields a magic halberd, and can summon orbs to shoot lasers at you. It is powerful and is not worth the risk to kill, as it does not drop unique items.
  • A Golem can be found in the fields west of the Shaded Castle near Maleigh Marais, Shaded Castle Castellan. 2427  runes currency elden ring wiki guide 18 Runes (Confirmed can drop Golem's Halberd)
  • Two Golems are found guarding the Grand Lift of Dectus -- one wielding a Greatbow and one wielding a Halberd.
    • Unlike other golems, they do not attack if player approach them after using the lift.
  • Many are seen across the frozen river in the Mountaintops of the Giants. They can be used to break the glowing statue containing useful items.

Elden Ring Golem Notes & Tips

  • Deals Standard (halberd), Pierce (ranged) and Fire Damage (flamethrower attack). Variation from Caelid deals additional Magic Damage (arrow)
    • There is unique Golem from Caelid near "Redmane" painting location. This one uses halberd infused with magic and attacks with ranged attack dealing pure Magic Damage.
  • Weak spot: Parts that are not covered in armor. Attacks there deals increased damage.
    • Depending on variation, these are either foots or wrists.
    • Late-game variation can be fully covered in armor, but poise-break is still possible.
  • Can't be parried, but can be poise broken. Poise break stuns them for a long time and allows to perform a riposte dealing massive damage (riposte is done to the chest)
  • Neutral do Strike Damage, low resistance to other types of Physical-type damages/Magic Damage and medium to other Elemental-type damages.
  • Immune to Status Effects.
  • It is recommended that you use a melee weapon (preferably a Heavy or Colossal Weapon) to bring the Golem down easily, by positioning yourself by the ankles, charge up your heavy attacks 2-3 times, the Golem will then fall down and give you the chance to deal crit damage. When it tries to stand up, position yourself again at the ankles before it could fully recover and repeat the process.

      It was foggy as I approached Castle Morne so when a massive arrow barely missed me I assumed I was being shot at by a giant ballista or something. It was shocking but also cool as hell when I got close enough to see a giant humanoid figure with a bow instead.

        Do the magic archers drop regular golem great arrows in addition to the magical variants? I want to see if I can cut out farming in two locations at once.

          The one in Caelid is definitely tough. Having gone through and completed everything, he was the last on my list before starting NG+. So I was definitely overpowered. Turns out, he isn’t that hard. First, use the spirit spring to jump aiming for the pot right at the corner of the ledge. Once you clear the ledge be sure to steer back toward the cliff making sure not to land on the tree branches. You can land all the way to the bottom without damage.

          Then after getting a few sneak attacks in while he’s sleeping, run over to the far north east corner and used any long range method. Loretta’s Mastery works great. Get as many shots in and he will eventually turn around and go back toward his station. He will keep walking toward you looking scary, but if you stay in the corner, he will always back off.

          Plan your flasks and talismans accordingly. No need to rush, or risk melee. Just slow cheesy death.

            fun fact, the golem archer at the great jar can shoot you all the way from the cliffside at the dragonbarrow merchant

              For the infamous "Blue Golem" of Caelid:
              -mix Stonebarb Cracked Tear (poise break) and Strength-knot Cracked Tear (strength) in your Physick
              -have a beastly colossal weapon
              -at start of fight, pop Physick and rush to his right wrist while he is still sleeping on the ground
              -spam heavy attacks on his wrist- you might get 3 in a row before he stands up
              -this should be enough to immediately break his poise (you can try for one last heavy heel strike if not)
              -while he's broken, run over to his flaming chest and tap a light attack for a fabulous lava-spewing critical hit
              -mount Torrent and book it for the far side of the area to regroup/ heal if it got sloppy
              -you will be amazed at how little health he has left at this point!
              -when ready, charge in with Torrent and dismount right between his feet, slightly behind him
              -continue heavy attacks on his heels, he should die before he rips off another magic orb attack

                Throwing crystal darts at them enough times causes them to start malfunctioning, and they'll actually start infighting with other enemies similar to the Imps and Burial Watchdogs.

                  They seem especially vulnerable to critical hits. >7000 damage to the ones outside the capital with a flame art misericorde and no buffs. The halberd ones seem to take the most punishment.

                  • Every single one of these golems should be just as cool and dangerous as the one near the Redmane painting. Literally legendary fight for what it is and it’s not even a boss fight.

                      If you use greatsword (colossal) with axe talisman, you can poise break with two charged r2's and riposte. At heavy +19, 49 strength it kills in 3 shots the one at dectus. Useful for farming i hope

                        jumping R2s on their weakspots break their poise with any weapon in like 3 or 4 swings

                        even when they got their shin guards on, jumping R2s topple them pretty easy

                          There is also a second inactive Golem in stormhill, up past where you fight the Deathbird, another one in Leyndell which you can fight after being warped there from the Weeping Peninsula, three more which guard the route to the Draconic Tree Sentinel, an archer at the end of the narrow stone bridge in the mountaintops, and two or three more in the snow canyon right after. In addition, if you use the Grand Lift of Dectus, the two Golems at the top will not be hostile unless provoked.

                          • For fellow Faith people, use Envoy's Long Horn and spam Bubble Shower while targeting its chest (knocks it down after like 3 well-placed ones)! Worked especially well at the Dragonbarrow one

                                  "It is best to use magic and ranged to tackle this enemy, as its attacks are devastating and melee hits seem to be highly resisted."

                                  Yeah ngl that's pretty bad advice. These guys are very tanky and you'll probably use up all of your FP to kill them with magic, and their attacks at range are way harder to dodge and survive than their close range attacks. Additionally most (maybe all?) seem to have a built-in critical modifier like land octopi, where critical hits do crazy high damage.

                                  By far the easiest way to kill them is to just get under, two hand your weapon, and use fully charged R2s until they stagger. This can be as low as 1 hit on high poise damage weapons, but even something like a spear usually only takes 2, just be mindful that the ones wearing ankle guards will take a few more. Still though, when you are under them they tend to go for a stomp move which is very easy to dodge and gives you plenty of openings. After the first riposte, you can generally stagger them again before they even have a chance to finish standing up - effectively an infinite until they die.

                                    Strike damage and possibly holy. Sacred Morningstar staggers them with two charged attacks, after they fall prone you can land a crit by running around to their side. Works for every variant I've encountered, including the extremely powerful fire breathing version that is laying down just beyond the bonfire after going through the teleport trap on top of the tower of return. I was doing over 3.5k crit damage at around level 20. 16 str / 20 fth

                                          No one has mentioned the three on the route between Leyndell, Royal Capital Outer Wall Battleground site of grace and the Capital Ramparts site of grace. Two archers and one with a double-ended weapon. The archers are weak to physical attacks on their ankles, and go down quickly. The doublehanded guy is awful. Strong to physical vs. ankles, strong to lightning and fire, immune to poison and rot. I'm an Enchanter and haven't tried Magic. Does this guy have any known weaknesses at all?

                                          It's possible to bypass all three of these golems, and maybe most people do. I'm just curious whether there's any easier way to knock down that third one.

                                          • The mage golem in Dragonbarrow is one of the hardest enemies in the game. Larger health pool then Flame Giant, more defense, microscopic arena, magic damage on all attacks so nothing is blockable, massive attack range that goes through all the cover in the area. Don't know who balanced that dude, maybe added one or 2 extra 0s on their health pool?

                                              There's a secret golem with a blue weapon and magic abilities near Radhan's beach. It's up high on the cliff on the northern edge, and the only way I know of to get to it is to go up to the erdtree atop the cliff and jump down a series of platforms to get to it. There's also an ash of war for bows and some other thing down there, forgot what it was.

                                                It isn't listed here but the first time I played I found a golem laying on the ground left of the colesuem in limgrave and it only had half its health on every playthrough after that even if i made another character it hasn't shown up again

                                                • Quick strat for the dragonbarrow golem: grab an upgraded misericorde with the flame of the redmanes(or any high crit weapon), and enough cerulean flasks to chug around 4ish times(non-leveled mind). Hop down, spam ash of war three times and he'll stagger down, during that time drink a fp flask and crit him. Wait for him to start getting up and repeat, took around 4 crits for me. You can do this with most golems, they can't attack and you get a free kill if timed correctly.

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                      • Anonymous

What is interesting is that if you bypass the lift and go through the Ruin Strewn precipe to get up there (without having both peices of the Medallion), the two Golems will be hostile to you. Should you get up there via the Medallion, they are passive. And have passive sounds like that of sleeping/snoring.
