Golden Crystal Golem
Golden Crystal Golem

Description

The Golden Crystal Golem is a larger, stronger version of the blue Crystal Golems. It usually contains an NPC as part of a questline, but the ones in Crystal Cave do not hold any NPC's, and only act as mini-bosses.

Location

Darkroot Basin
Spawns after killing the Hydra and contains the captured Dusk of Oolacile. Go past the lake (be wary of underwater chasm) and into the alcove to the right of the long ladder. Quit and reload if it doesn't appear.

Notes

  • The ones in Crystal Cave may look like a normal blue Crystal Golem because of the ever-present blue color filter of the cave.

Attacks

  • 1 or 2 Normal Arm Swings.
  • Crystallized Arm Swing.
  • Area of Effect Crystal Blast (smaller radius than the regular Crystal Golem).
  • Jumping Smash Attack.
  • Standing Uppercut.

Weakness

  • Fire.
  • Strike.
  • Lightning.

Strategy

  • Wearing the Rusted Iron Ring makes the fight after the Hydra much easier.
  • Their attacks do track much better than the blue versions but it is still possible to outmaneuver them by strafing quickly around them in a circle.
  • Try to lure the ones in the Crystal Cave onto larger patches of ground as their attacks have a lot of blowback and can send you flying off the edge, especially if you have your shield up.
