    How can you tell the difference between pre-patch golem and regular golem? or would one have to prove and test manually if the golems takes no damage with 100% poison weapon?

    -thanks

    I believe that it can be lored by someone with 120 Animal Lore (maybe as low as 110 - not sure).

    I have a pre patch Golem, I think you can tell if you just sit there and watch it for a while. A Pre Patch golem will not lose any hitpoints whilst being hit by it's owner with a 100% poison weapon. On the other hand if you watch somebody hit with a 100% poison weap and it does take damage then you know it's not pre-patch.

    Last i saw a pre-patch golem sell was for about 15mil.

    so is the only difference between the 1% poison resistance?

    thats a ridiculous amount of gold for something you dont even need! (there are other things out there with 100% poison resist)

    Yeah the pre-patched golems wouldn't take any damage when hit by a 100% poison weapon. The new ones take 1 point, so if your hitting a max swing speed, it is easy to knock the health down pretty quick. You can repair the golem either with a tinker or if you have spellweaving, cast gift of renewal on it. Just don't fall asleep. :eek:

    So i was right in thinking that a pre patch golem is a 15mil stableable (not sure if thats a word) artic ogre lord!

    WOW.

    Dont know if i should have said that if you dryad allure an artic ogre lord it works the same as a golem (oh and will go to gm-gm in the skills) with 100% poison resist so no dmg taken no loss of durability on weap

    I have found that I gain faster with an Arctic Ogre Lord. Could be random I suppose.
