Part 1

Making the Golem

  1. 1

    Craft four iron blocks. To make one iron block, combine nine ingots in a crafting table. You'll need four blocks (36 ingots) to make one iron golem.
  2. 2

    Collect a pumpkin. Pumpkins can grow on any grass block with air above it (but not on tall grass or snow). Plains biomes are the easiest place to find them. You need one pumpkin (or jack o' lantern) for each iron golem.
    • You only need one pumpkin to start a pumpkin farm and grow as many as you like. First, turn the pumpkin into four pumpkin seeds in the crafting screen. Plant the seeds in farmland next to water, leaving one empty dirt block for each seed. The pumpkins will grow onto the empty blocks.[1]
  3. 3

    Find an open area. The space must be at least three blocks wide and three blocks tall, but it's a good idea to work in a larger space. If you craft the golem too close to a wall, there's a chance it spawns trapped inside the wall and suffocates.[2]
    • Break any tall grass or flowers in the area before you begin. These sometimes prevent the golem from spawning.[3]
  4. 4

    Place the four iron blocks in a T shape. Place one iron block on the ground. Put the other three in a row on top of the first one, forming a "T." This will become the body of your iron golem.

  5. 5

    Place the pumpkin or jack-o-lantern on top of the T. Place it over the center block, so the structure looks a little like a cross. This will change immediately into an iron golem.
    • The pumpkin must be the last block you place, or the iron golem will not spawn.

Part 2

Using Iron Golems

  1. 1

    Let your iron golem protect villages. If iron golems sense a village nearby, they will wander over there and patrol its buildings.[4] This defense isn't as foolproof as a good wall and torches, but you get to see the golem hand flowers to the villagers.
    • Unlike naturally spawning iron golems, your own creation will never attack you, even if you harm it or a villager.
  2. 2

    Fence your golem in instead. Put up barriers if you want your new iron golem to stay in place instead of wandering off to protect villagers. The iron golem will also stay put if you surround your house with vines.[5]

  3. 3

    Attach a lead to the iron golem. You can use a lead to make the iron golem follow you, or to tie it to a fence (although it won't defend very well when tied up).[6] Craft a lead using four string and one slimeball.

Community Q&A

Add New Question
  • Question

    What is the maximum number I can have?

    There is no maximum. You can make one, ten, or 100, as many as you like. I think the more you make, the better, because they attack hostile mobs.


    Community Answer

  • Question

    Do the iron golems stay in one village, or do they move around?

    They only stay in the village they're spawned in, unless leashed and moved by the player.

  • Question

    If I hit the golem or a villager, will it attack me?

    If you created it, no. If you didn't, then yes. It will attack mobs no matter who made it.

  • Question

    Why do they wander off to protect the villages?

    The Iron Golems were created because too many villagers were being attacked by monsters, with no way to defend themselves. Iron Golems will gravitate towards villages to protect them from the monsters.

  • Question

    How do I make an Iron Golem on Xbox 360?

    Take 4 iron blocks and place one on the bottom, then place a row of 3 on top of the first block. To finish, put a pumpkin or Jack o' lantern on top.

  • Question

    How do I spawn him in computer edition 1.10.2?

    Use the same method described here, with four iron blocks and a pumpkin on top. This works all the way back to official release 1.2.1, from March 2012.

  • Question

    How do I make it in the 2D Mine Blocks game?

    There is no iron golem in Mine Blocks yet as of November 2016. You can make a snow golem by placing two snow blocks on the ground (one on top of the other), then putting a pumpkin on top of them.

  • Question

    Can we control it after spawning it?

    No, you cannot, but you can attach a lead to make it follow you.

  • Question

    How do I manipulate it when leashed?

    You can't manipulate it, you can only make it follow you. The leash is used to make mobs follow you.

  • Question

    Can I make an Iron Golem in creative mode?

    Yes, the same way as in Survival.

  • It’s a good idea to build your barriers or pen before you create your golem.


  • If you create a golem against a wall, it could spawn inside the wall, suffocate, and die.
  • You have to place the final block yourself for an iron golem to spawn - no pistons!
  • You cannot create a golem in the crafting table.
  • Although player-created golems are not supposed to attack you, some Pocket Edition players have reported a bug where they attack back when struck.[7]

Wow, what I'm amazed to find out is that there was no golem manual in the 3.0 rules! (At least not the core rules DMG, maybe they slipped it in a later supplement).

In 1E, you'd make the body, and the "sprinkle ashes of book" was all you needed to activate it. In 3.5, there seems to be confusion in the design about what spells are doing in the book, or what is getting activated how, or what exactly the ash-sprinkling accomplishes. It's like the 3.5 designer halfway thought they just needed to supply a casting of prerequisite spells, and forgot that most of the cost of a golem is costs for some unnamed ritual (or something).

Per rules-as-written, my reading is definitely:
- Body costs 10,000 gp.
- Manual costs 35,000 gp.
- Manual is very underpriced compared to golem.
- Time spent is undetermined.

To be balanced, I think you might need to ad-hoc judge that:
- Body costs 80,000 gp.
- Manual costs 35,000 gp.
- Manual basically serves up all prerequisites (skills, feats, spells you may not have).
- Time spent is normal for golem construction.

As a complete aside, in 1E making an iron golem from scratch cost 80,000 gp. Making one with a golem manual cost 100,000 gp + 30,000 gp for the manual, and 4 months time. That's remarkably close to the second interpretation above. I think the problem was where 3E broke out a separate small cost for "the body" versus some unnamed other larger cost, which was then overlooked in the 3.5 item design, and created the breakdown here.


Eventually, you get as many as ten villagers and can have the iron golems Many players instead simply craft an iron golem by placing 4 blocks of iron into a T.

Or, if you want their iron, trap them and move them away from the village. Once they are far enough they don't count for the golem spawn limit anymore and new ones will spawn to replace them.

Golems are crafted humanoid creations from Thaumcraft 3 that can do various jobs. Currently you must discover Golemancy in your Research Table before you can craft Wood Golems. In addition every other golem type must have their respective theory researched with the exception of Iron Golems, which required more advanced golemancy as well.

They are Thaumcraft's method of automating certain tedious tasks. Whilst they can make their way through gates and wooden doors, other entry means such as iron and warded doors will prevent their egress giving a frustrated thaumaturge a means by which to prevent golem intrusion into restricted areas.

Right-clicking any golem with a Vis storing Wand will turn them back into an item.

The base of any golem is the Golem Animation Core.

Research DetailsEdit

Required Research for Basic Golemancy: Unified Thaumic Field Theory

Required Research for Advanced Golemancy: The Theory of Everything

Required Research for different Cores:

Wooden GolemsEdit

Wooden golems will pick up any item on the floor and put it in the storage unit it was placed on.


Decanting GolemEdit

Decanting Golems can carry around Warded Jars and can be specified to fill it with particular liquids. Due to them carrying a jar, they don't need to use up glass phials.

Iron Golem GuardianEdit

Iron Golem Guardians are placed by right-clicking on any solid block. They will attack most non-creeper monsters, including Endermen, Zombies, Zombie Pigmen, Skeletons, Wisps, Cave spiders, Fire bats, Slimes, Witches, Silverfish, Blazes, and Ghasts.

They will not attack Hostile Dogs or Creepers and they will actively flee from the Ender dragon regardless of their core.

Once they have killed all hostiles within their assigned perimeter, they will attempt to return to the center of their area unless they have fallen off a cliff chasing a monster, in which case they will remain where they have fallen until picked up with a magic wand or aggravated by another monster. When they take damage, they will slowly regenerate (which they do by flashing green) and become more haggard in appearance until their health is recovered.

Golem Animation CoreEdit

Upgraded cores can be researched and then crafted INSTEAD of the normal core in the crafting recipe of the golem; there is no way to upgrade an existing golem. Each core is made by crafting the basic core with a shard.

Intelligence Core (fire shard)Edit

Wood, Stone, and Clay golems can be given more items to filter what items they will take. Straw Golems will replant what they broke. It doesn't replant if nothing plantable is dropped, but if multiple plantable objects are dropped, it will also plant on adjacent tilled but unused soil blocks. Iron Golems will attempt to dodge an explosion by a creeper.

Strength Core (earth shard)Edit

Wood, Stone, and Clay golems can carry a stack of 32 items instead of 16. Straw cannot receive this upgrade. Iron Golems will do more damage when they attack a hostile mob.

Speed Core (air shard)Edit

Golems have increased walking speed.

Perception Core (water shard)Edit

Golems have an increased effective range.

Unmodified Golems can work on a 10 block radius centered around the golem.

Golems with the Perception Core can work on a 16 block radius centered around the golem.

Wood golems can pick up items halfway in their outer block (bug?).

Tallow golems seem to have a slightly larger range than normal when searching for water.

Advanced GolemsEdit

Advanced Stone Golems are placed like normal stone golems but cannot be made using Stone Golems with anything other than a basic animation core. They can move up to six different items to six different coloured markers, this is achieved by placing different coloured markers in its radius and putting items in its item slots then changing the colours on the bars above them to make the golem take the item with a colour above it to the corresponding marker, if there is not one it will not complete the action and will stand on or next to its home chest. Advanced clay golems will still move items into one marked chest, but are able to handle more chests in a farther radius.

  • Motus (trapdoor)
  • Imperito (lever)
  • Telum (swords)
  • Tutamen (leather)
  • Victus (wheat)
  • Animus (soul sand)


Golems can also be given accessories to aid in their operation, these are less influential than cores but still helpful. These are all gained from lost research fragments.

Accessory: BowtieEdit

A must for any golem on the go, this bowtie will fill it with additional energy, increasing its pace.

Accessory: FezEdit

This strange headgear seems to fill any golem wearing it with unusual vitality, allowing it to repair damage at a much faster pace.

Accessory: Top HatEdit

This tiny hat is the perfect accessory for any golem. Not only is it stylish and dashing, but any golem wearing it will have increased health and vitality.

Accessory: SpectaclesEdit

Golems are notoriously short sighted, and these glasses alleviate that weakness to some degree. This will increase the perception radius of the golem by 2 blocks (tested on both normal and perceptive golems).

Accessory: Dart LauncherEdit

This dart launcher can only be attached to combat golems. It is not quite as powerful as the golems primary attack, but gives golems a means of attacking foes at range.

Accessory: VisorEdit

This metal visor will grant a combat golem a small amount of additional armor protection. It will also ensure that any foes attacked by the golem will drop experience orbs when they die.

Accessory: Iron PlatingEdit

The armored plating grants the golem wearing it increased resistance to physical harm. Unfortunately the additional protection comes at a cost, as all the heavy ironmongery will slow it down.


If you find your golems are not where you left them it might be because they wandered from their placement point or they were killed. I find it useful to look in the server log to see what happened.

Here are two examples.

The flux event, lightning, targets the nearest entity (even you, your villagers, and your golems). If fire spread is disabled this causes further complications as the fire will never disappear (A new feature in CodeChickenCore, doFireTickOut=true, fixes this problem).

2013-04-10 06:23:24 [INFO] [ForgeModLoader] [Thaumcraft] EntityGolemIronGuardian['Iron Golem Guardian'/183643982, l='H&N-2', x=-561.92, y=68.08, z=-110.62] was killed by EntityWisp['Wisp'/199720756, l='H&N-2', x=-555.46, y=70.00, z=-106.52] (mob)

Iron golems are quite ineffective against wisps without a dart launcher. Even so, they will often run away in pursuit and be unable to find their way back home. It is best to trap your wisps at the source lest they escape to harass your golems.

As Per title, After gathering all required resource to craft a golem, it will not craft on I have the same exact issue as you are describing it.


... There's at least one giant reason not to mess with villagers. Their loyal defenders that can't drown, suffer pain from falling or even be knocked back. Sentient statues that deal huge damage with just a single swing of their mighty arms. We pity you if you're caught attacking villagers – we really do – because then you've just made an enemy of the Iron Golem. Don't be surprised if that's the last thing you ever do – they're one of the hardest hitting mobs in the Overworld.

Tom Stone[1]

Iron golems are large, strong utility mobs that defend players and villagers.



In Java Edition, an iron golem spawns based on villager gossip at a gathering point. The villager who starts the gossip must have a profession that is not nitwit, slept in the last 24000 ticks, been to their job site block in the last 36000 ticks, gossiped 5 times about the need for an iron golem, and have four other villagers within 80 blocks. The iron golem then has a chance to spawn in a 16×6×16 cuboid area centered above and below the location of the villager who spread the gossip. Iron golems can spawn inside transparent blocks, stairs, carpets and half-slabs as long as there is a full block underneath them.

In Bedrock Edition, an iron golem can spawn naturally when a village first generates in the world. Iron golems also spawn in villages having at least 21 beds and 10 villagers, in a 16×6×16 volume around the village center defined by a bed, a bell, or another meeting point.

In Legacy Console Edition, an iron golem spawns in a 16×6×16 area, centered vertically and horizontally between the bases of the 21 or more valid doors within a village occupied by at least 10 villagers.

In Legacy Console and Bedrock editions, the chance of spawning is 1 in 7000 per game tick, which averages to one every five minutes and 50 seconds. Iron golems can spawn provided the blocks it spawns in are transparent[verify] and the block it spawns on has a solid flat top surface.


Iron golems are created by placing four iron blocks in a T shape (as shown in the image), and then placing a carved pumpkin, a jack o'lantern or a pumpkin‌[BE & LCE only] on top of the center upper block. The pumpkin may be placed by the player, an enderman, a dispenser or a pumpkin stem, but it must be placed last. It needs space around it to be able to spawn and cannot spawn in a confined area. In Bedrock Edition, the player must also use shears on the pumpkin to begin the transformation.

The block arrangement can be placed upright, lying down, or upside-down. The four empty spaces in the diagram (above and below each of the arms) must be air blocks. Any non-air block (including blocks such as snow layers, tall grass, and water) present in any of the empty spaces prevent the golem from spawning.

Like other constructed mobs, iron golems always spawn facing south. Their large size may cause them to take suffocation damage from nearby solid blocks at the level of their head.

Pillager outposts[edit]

Iron golems can also be found surrounding pillager outposts, trapped inside of dark oak cages.


Iron golems drop when they die:

The Looting enchantment is ineffective against iron golems as it does not give any extra iron ingots or poppies when killed.


Iron golems wander around a village in a patrol-like fashion, staying close to the edges of buildings and other structures. Like villagers, iron golems do not wander away from a village, regardless of how they were spawned. An iron golem sometimes faces a villager as if they are speaking to each other. Iron golems are able to spawn poppies in their hands and offer them to villagers, symbolizing the friendly relationship between the villagers and golems.

If not within a village, iron golems slowly wander around, usually making their way to a nearby village.

Iron golems can walk up a full block height without jumping and walk over a 1 block wide hole without falling in. They avoid water, lava, fire and cacti. Iron golems are immune to both drowning and fall damage. When in water, they sink, but can still move freely when in and underwater.

Like all utility mobs, iron golems can be leashed.


When provoked, an iron golem moves quickly toward its target and swing its arms up violently to attack, dealing 7 to 21 × 10.5 damage and flinging the target into the air. Iron golems have a comparatively large attack range, allowing them to attack through a solid 1 block thick wall, even without a line of sight to the target.

Iron golems have a chance of accidentally hitting another mob while attacking a hostile mob. Sometimes the golems accidentally hit each other and fight, usually resulting in one or more golems dying. Additionally, it is possible for multiple golems to simultaneously hit the same target. The height to which the victim is sent flying is relative to the number of golems that attack it.

Iron golems attack most hostile or neutral mobs within 32 blocks of them, although they are not effective on flying mobs (ender dragon, wither, phantom) that don't venture into the iron golem's reach. Additionally, pufferfish are the only passive mob they attack should either get close to the other.

A naturally-spawned iron golem knows raiding illager locations from behind solid walls and from underground and attempts to move toward them. An iron golem created by the player or summoned by a command cannot detect raiders through obstructions.

Being attacked[edit]

Zombies (and variants), skeletons (and variants), spiders, cave spiders, slimes, magma cubes and illagers naturally attack iron golems on sight and may cause major damage, especially if the mobs attack in groups. If an iron golem is attacked by multiple mobs, it retaliates in the order it was attacked. In Bedrock Edition, endermen, endermites, silverfishes and witches may naturally attack it too.

Iron golems have 100% knockback resistance. However, they can be knocked back by the Knockback enchantment on swords and the Punch enchantment on bows.


In Java Edition, using an iron ingot on an iron golem restores its health by 25%.‌[upcoming:JE 1.15]

“This was made by me and Jon Kågström. We were thinking about how to get the Villagers to defend themselves, since they don’t have arms. The design was inspired very much by the Japanese Studio Ghibli movie with the giant [The Castle in the Sky]. It also has this flower. When I was making the model, I realised it was much harder to draw a texture for it – the larger it is, it gets more detailed. But it’s become quite iconic – it’s very emblematic of Minecraft now. We made it look like the Villagers, because obviously the Villagers would create a golem which would resemble themselves.” – Jeb[1]
