Vaguely reminsicent of the Acroliths that appear in the Near East, Golems are often found in the ancient ruins such as Fei'Yin. They also bear a number of similarities to Dolls leading some to speculate that Golems may in fact be merely a more degraded version of the ancient living statues that cohabitate so many regions with them.

Despite their various "metallic" or "mineral" names (Stone, Ore, Rock, Mythril or Darksteel), Golems all appear to be made of Mythril, and when defeated can drop Mythril Ore as a reward to the victor. Golem Shards can also be retrieved from the fallen Golem, which can be crafted into Cermet Chunks – a high demand item.

Historical Background

In Jewish folklore, a golem (גולם, sometimes [as in Yiddish] pronounced goilem) is an animated being which is crafted from inanimate material. The word golem is used in the Bible to refer to an embryonic or incomplete substance: Psalm 139:16 uses the word "gal'mi", meaning "my unshaped form." The Mishnah uses the term for an uncultivated person.
