Golem Factory  Diamond Golem (adventure map).gif

Diamond Golem is a level 6 neutral creature that can only be recruited from Golem Factory founded on Adventure Map.

See the Comparison of Level 6 Creatures.

"Like the Stone and Iron Golems found in Tower towns, diamond and gold golems are highly crafted statues animated through magic..." RoE manual

Tactics and info[edit]

The information found in this section is subjective. Remember that each and every situation in H3 is different and may call for different strategies and tactics.


They have very low defensive stats for a level 6 unit, the lowest health value if we exclude the Enchanter and also the lowest defense.


The Diamond Golems also have the lowest attack and damage values of a level 6 unit.

Efficiency and cost[edit]

Because they can be recruited pretty easily after taking a Golem Factory, and also due to their very low cost, they are units worth having in early game. However, later on they serve only as cannon fodder.


Since they take only 5% damage from spells, they can be used as the only unit of a hero who has learned Armageddon, allowing you to sometimes wipe out your enemy's army in one spell, without hurting your own stack too much. There are much better options available out there (Namely: Efreets, Black and Gold Dragons or Phoenixes), but Diamond Golems can be an option if need be.
