Stone Golems and Iron Golems are level 3 creatures of Tower. They are recruited from Golem Factory.

"Stone and iron golems are built and animated through a process involving both precise craftsmanship and complex magic. Though slow, they are strong and durable combatants. Stone golems take half damage from spell attacks, while iron golems take only a quarter of such damage." RoE manual

Heroes with a specialty

  • Josephine 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

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.

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.
