    I just killed it with bludgeoning weapons, not sure about the enchantment but I guess about +2 or +3
    Just trie your bludgeoning weapons with the highest enchantment, I didn't have any problem though, maybe I was just lucky, that I had the right weapons at the time.
    By the way, at my battle with the golum he did resist 5 damage of every hit
    Good luck, let me know if it works, remember with what weapons you killed him and remember the enchantment. This will probably help people with the same problem in the future

    Yes, blunt weapons. I think that if you ask around, you see a dialog where the creator of the Crystal Golems says something like "And stop hitting my precious creations with those rocks! They break!" (or some such)

    1. Distract it by shouting, "Hey a low flying rubber chicken!"

    2. Lay a trip wire.

    3. Have half-orc barbarian push it from behind.

    4. Observe golem shattering on firm ground.

    5. This is a joke. :D

    Sir. At last someone who appreciates my lame "rubber chicken" jokes. :cool:

    Seriously, the guys are correct, bludgeoning and no magic.

    Just as a note, I believe bludgeoning weapons will receive a +10 damage bonus against crystal golems (at least that's the way I remember it), so even a mage with a quarterstaff could do some damage against them. With Mirror Image thrown in, all it would take is time.

    [​IMG] Easy, Just Use Impact Arrows As Rekiller Said. They Are Awesome because they make 20 Damage Bonus!!! If You Don´t Have Impact Arrows (Very Difficult) Just Use Arrows +2 or +3 And That should Do The Job

    I think the claeric and druid spell Star cudgel should lay them low.

    When I ran into them, no one in my party had a blunt weapn except my thief, who was using a throwing weapon that did blunt damage. So I just avoided them.

    After I got into the ice temple, I found some very nice blunt weapons. So I went back and killed the golems outside for the XP.

    They are generally very easy to kill, as long as you use the right tactics. IF you have the memories of kuldahar, the closed fist mace or any of the throwing hammars around the place, you'll breeze through them.

    Cheers.

    [​IMG] Nother fun tip. All those Aurilites have Bullets, Which ARE missile weapons. But they also score Blunt Dmg!! Your cleric probably has a sling (or Should) Easy points for your party with some +1 or +2 bullets. If you don't have ANY blunt weapons, Lure them all to the place where the Soldiers are Frozen in Ice, And have other party Members Up Top> Then hit the Levers, The Rocks Drop, and score Massive Damage to these Guys.. Great Fun..

    If All else fails, there Is a way to use magic Successfully, (Or a Bard!) Can we Say "Dire Charm?" ^_^ GL Guys..

    I simply use "Kegsplitter of Shangarne Ford" on them. The weapon slays constructs instantly. ;)
    But then I play HoF. :p :grin:

    He has something called damage reduction ej:10/+1(this means that the creature has 10 points of reduction to the damage with +1 wepons or lesser)

    So you need wepons +2 or +3. I think that his damage reduction is 20/+1 or something like that.

    Rekiller:
    You are wrong. DR of 10/+1 will not reduce damage from +1 weapons. 10/+1 means you will absorb(instantly regenerate) 10 points of damage if hit by unenchanted weapons.
    So, a short sword +1 will do full damage to a character with 10/+1 DR.

    If you sneak past the first golem on your way around to drop the rocks on the frozen soldiers, there's a REALLY good Crystal Golem Slaying weapon you can get. Once you have the Aurilite Necklace, the invisible automatons attack you. The leader, the one with a name, has a spiked mace that does 1d8 bludgeoning and also adds 1d6 fire damage. Not only do you get the +10 damage bonus, but the fire damage gets some kind of bonus as well. You coud always just attack the thing when you see it though and get it earlier. Just don't use the mace on the Rehmoraz's. Fire doesn't bother them at all.
