Two players attack a siege golem.

Siege Golems are large asuran golems that act as siege weapons in WvW. Siege golems move slowly and can be used as a battering ram, allowing the pilot to knock down doors and gates in addition to attacking enemies. The golem is the only siege weapon that is mobile. Their AoE target limit is 10. Unlike with other siege weapons, you cannot kick someone out of the golem you built.

Siege Golems glow in different colors when active depending on the type. All of them glow white when they are inactive.

Piloting a golem[edit]

A golem is controlled like a normal player character. When the golem's driver dodges it runs a bit more quickly for a short time. When a golem is destroyed, the driver is ejected and downed.

A golem takes massive falling damage because falling damage is calculated with percentages, the golem will lose a lot of health. If a golem takes enough falling damage that it is destroyed, the driver will be kicked out of the golem, and is defeated.

Golems can use Mesmer Portals. This allows them to move across short distances much faster.

Golems are also affected by boons (although Regeneration will not heal them) and Superspeed applied by allies.

Alpha Siege Golem[edit]

Alpha Siege Golems are the most common Siege Golems. They glow in team color when active. These golems are constructed from  Alpha Siege Golem Blueprints.png Alpha Siege Golem Blueprints. Once deployed, a build site appears, which requires 100 Supply.png before the golem is built.

Upon entering, you gain the following attributes at level 80:

Power.png Power +3,000
Precision.png Precision +1,000 Critical Chance.png Critical Chance +48%
Toughness.png Toughness +2,000 Armor (attribute).png Armor +2,000
Vitality.png Vitality +11,000 Health.png Health +110,000

Alpha Siege Golems have an effective range of 225 units and give access to the following 5 skills:

Skill Underwater skills Activation.png Tango-recharge-darker.png Description
Punch.png Punch 1 Does extra damage to gates.
Whirling Assault.png Whirling Assault Not available underwater 4 12 Spin your siege suit forward, knocking back foes.
Shield Bubble.png Shield Bubble 30 Engage the suit's shield bubble to block projectiles.
Pull (Siege Golem).png Pull Not available underwater 10.25¼ 30 Launch the Siege suit's fist to pull a foe to you.
Eject.png Eject 1 Eject from the Siege Golem.

Note that Alpha Siege Golems have access to the first skill underwater - this is not the case with Omega Siege Golems, making Alpha Siege Golems a superior option if attempting to break through an underwater gate (such as on Green World Lowlands).

Omega Siege Golem[edit]

Omega Siege Golems are the upgraded form of an Alpha Siege Golem. They are bigger and move faster than Alpha Siege Golems, and always glow blue when active. These golems are constructed from  Omega Siege Golem Blueprints.png Omega Siege Golem Blueprints. Once deployed, a build site appears, which requires 150 Supply.png before the golem is built.

Power.png Power +3,000
Precision.png Precision +1,000 Critical Chance.png Critical Chance +48%
Toughness.png Toughness +2,000 Armor (attribute).png Armor +2,000
Vitality.png Vitality +24,000 Health.png Health +240,000

Omega Siege Golems have a much greater attack range than Alpha Siege Golems. They give access to the following 5 skills:

Skill Underwater skills Activation.png Tango-recharge-darker.png Description
Rocket Punch.png Rocket Punch Not available underwater 1 Fire a rocket from each hand. Does extra damage to gates and walls.
Whirling Inferno.png Whirling Inferno Not available underwater 50.5½ 12 Spin around releasing jets of flame to damage your foes.
Shield Bubble.png Shield Bubble 30 Engage the suit's shield bubble to block projectiles.
Rocket Salvo.png Rocket Salvo Not available underwater 20.25¼ 30 Launch a barrage of rockets that knock down foes.
Eject.png Eject 1 Eject from the Siege Golem.

Unlike the Alpha Siege Golem, the Omega Siege Golem can deal damage to walls.

Guild Siege Suit[edit]

Guild Siege Suits are the guild variant of the Siege Golems. They glow in team color when active. Build sites are created from  Guild Siege Golem Blueprints.png Guild Siege Golem Blueprints. Once deployed, a build site appears, which requires only 50 Supply.png before the golem is built.

Guild Siege Suits have identical combat abilities as Alpha Siege Golems, listed above.

Trivia[edit]

  • Siege golems were first mentioned in a Guild Wars Insider post as a teaser to an interview that was released a week later.[1] Their name was believed to be "siege suits" until more information was released in an ArenaNet blog post on 16 February 2012.
  • In the first Beta Weekend Event golems could be healed, which is no longer the case.
  • The Omega siege golem shares his model with Mr. Sparkles.
  • After the September 2014 Feature Pack, all boons are stripped from the controller of the golem upon entering it.
  • Siege Golem Mastery abilities do not affect asura racial skills such as Summon 7-Series Golem, Summon D-Series Golem and Summon Power Suit.
