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 can not 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.

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. These blueprints may be bought from a Siege Master for either 1 Gold coin or 100 Badges of Honor. They can also be acquired by completing Victory or Death, completing WvW jumping puzzles or looting them from hostile NPCs on a WvW map. 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 +3000
Precision.png Precision +1000 Critical Chance.png Critical Chance +48%
Toughness.png Toughness +2000 Armor (attribute).png Armor +2000
Vitality.png Vitality +11000 Health.png Health +110000

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

Omega Siege Golem[edit]

Omega Siege Golems are the upgraded form of an Alpha Siege Golem. They are bigger than Alpha Siege Golems and always glow blue when active. These golems are constructed from Omega Siege Golem Blueprints. These blueprints can only be constructed at the mystic forge like all other superior variants of siege weapons. Once deployed, a build site appears, which requires 150 Supply.png before the golem is built.

Power.png Power +3000
Precision.png Precision +1000 Critical Chance.png Critical Chance +48%
Toughness.png Toughness +2000 Armor (attribute).png Armor +2000

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

 Rocket Punch

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 may be created from blueprints or they may be directly activated from the guild upgrade screen, where up to 5 Siege Suits can be stacked. Each activation however has a 15 min cooldown. Once deployed, a build site appears, which requires only 50 Supply.png before the golem is built. This build site can not be put back like a normal blueprint would allow.

Guild Siege Suits have identical combat abilities as Alpha Siege Golems.

Trivia[edit]

  • 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.
