Heroes with a specialty
- Josephine the Alchemist has golems as a specialty, which increases the attack and defense skills of any stone or iron golems for each level attained after 3rd level, and gives them a speed bonus of 1.
Tactics and info
Their only problem is their low speed. In early game they can be okay, also serving as protectors for your Master Gremlins, but later on it's recommended to leave them in the castle, as to not slow down your hero. However, they are good castle defenders, boasting low cost and natural magic resistance, and can still be used for final battles, as any slow unit, since it doesn't matter that much whether you're slowed down or not at the end of the game.
In the in-game portrait, Stone Golems are shown wearing a helmet and having something that looks like a mustache, despite the fact that everywhere else (including battles) they don't have any of these. This is probably due to the team deciding to change the look of the unit right before the release and forgetting to fix the portrait after that.
