Clash of Clans Golem

In Clash of Clans the Golem is the ultimate tank with incredibly high hit points, able to withstand a huge amount of damage. The Golem can be trained in a level 4 Dark Barracks or above, using Dark Elixir.

Like the Giant and Hog Rider, the Golem will target defensive buildings first. They take up the most space in the game at 30 housing units in your Army Camp. This means that even with fully maxed out Army Camps you can only build a maximum of 8 Golems.

The Golem is a very expensive unit, costing a minimum of 450 Dark Elixir even at level 1, they also take 45 minutes to build! However, due to their high health one or two is usually enough for most attacks. A good strategy is to send your Golem in first drawing the fire of the high damage defenses, whilst using Archers or Barbarians to rush the base.

Golems have low dps and therefore will need to be supported with higher damage troops. On destruction they cause a large amount of area effect damage and then split into two smaller "Golemites". Golemites continue to fight until they die, also causing area effect damage on death.

The Inferno Tower is the only defensive building that is likely to cause your Golems a major problem, so it is a good idea to take these out first. A great advantage of the Golem over Giants is that they are not affected by Spring Traps (unfortunately Golemites are).

To defend against Golems can be difficult and really the only strategy is to make sure enough high damage defenses overlap, in order to slowly wear them down.

The tables below outline the stats for each research level and the general stats applicable to Golems.
