Looking for an Old Golem

    one that does not take damage from a poison weapon.

    I need to train Swords and Tactics and Bushido, and if I can get away with not having to hire a tinker to repair, that will be greatly appreciated.

    I would prefer to borrow it, as I have limited funds, but will purchase if it is not too costly.

    Also, if anyone has a very fast 100% poison weapon, that would be great.

    NM, I found out I can control an Artic Ogre Lord and use him to gain.

    The idea that one needs a pre-patch golem is a bit misleading. you want a 100% poison weapon with little or no DI (remember to take off any DI gear), and as low a normal damage range as possible (which typically weapons that are naturally fast are also naturally really low damage).

    One made by a GM tinker will still work, it just requires a little healing (which Gift of Renewal will provide, as well as Close Wounds, IIRC), or a supply of ingots. You just got to disable the check mark for the "action may flag me" gump in the CC options.

    Just be sure to stay at/near the keyboard. You never know when someone might get a bug up their... well... (reminder - there are still a lot of Harbinger crystals out there, and I've seen people plant them near people training that are obviously still at their computer, let alone unattended).

    Yellow crystal from last year's halloween gypsy event.

    Used, it summons a big black ethereal warrior called a Harbinger (that attacks everything, including the summoner). has several thousand HP, and eats Greater Dragons for breakfast due to special attacks.
