    Well ... there are two types of vollems:
    - that one from a crystall, that can bind
    - the crafted one, that cannot bind

    Is there a way to differ between those two without waiting, if it binds or not?
    Explanation: I just tamed a vollem that probably went wild and I want to know now, which one it is. *g*

    I don't think the crafted ones can bond.
    But, regardless of that, as far as I'm aware under all circumstances, the crafted ones say [golem] instead of [tame] or [bonded]

    Sorry, what is the crafted vollem?
    Can I craft it? What skill?

    Tinkering.

    You need the "mechanical life manual" from the quest with the crazy guy in the abyss, who's name I can't remember.
    Then, it's something like 2 void essences, 1 power crystal and a clockwork assembly to make the vollem assembly.
    Then, you need something like leather and 50 white dragon scales to turn that assembly into a vollem.

    The repairing takes no resources, but can only be done like once a minute or something - too slow for practical use, really

    Is there a difference in what gollems are eating? My tamed one wants meat.
    Or is this a diffenrence in general. I have never thought about golems going wild. Shouldnt they just fall apart if abandoned for long enough?

    Note that the "living" Vollem are effectively 2-slot, no-taming-required, unridable, reskinned Nightmares - right down to their resists and loot on their corpses the first time they die.

    Ok, the live vollem is better that the crafted one, i see.
    But stats and resistences are the same? The live one is better or not?
    Thanks :)

    I've never seen the stats for a crafted vollem, and the only live vollem I've lored has been one someone was training, so I can't compare them on two counts.

    I have two crystals, which I'm wondering whether they're worth cracking open, though.

    That's because it's supposed to be the the same Sutek.
