Released in Publish 10 of UODarwinism, Golem Crafting was expanded and the Iron Golem was the prototype developed by Kane the Developer and then exploited and released into the world by Balathustrius, the Demented Tinker.
The custom Golem Crafting system allows players to create and control an Iron Golem to assist them in their mining endeavors. There are many ways to customize your Golem, including leveling, resist types, adding sockets, and selecting the type of AI. The materials you select, skill level and luck directly effect the traits of your Golem while Special Abilities are based on its level. More Golems of different resources are in development!
How to Create a Player-Crafted Iron Golem
I've been asked about this a few times so makes sense to just post a walkthrough
Tinkering should be high-if tinkering is not high enough you will not get a golem that can smelt ore. Using the tinkering menu go to customs and build an Iron Clockwork assembly. You will need the following materials in your bag:
- 1 Clock Part
- 1 Spring
- 25 Iron Ingots
- 5 Blackrock
Once your Iron Clockwork assembly is made double click it. The following items must be in your pack:
- 10 Power Crystals (from Exodus dungeon)
- 7500 Iron Ingots
- 3750 Bronze ingots
- 50 Gears
Congrats! You have just crafted an Iron Mining Golem!

- You need a minimum tinkering skill of 100+
- Read the "Advanced Golem Crafting" book (not required atm)
- The higher the tinker skill, the more traits and better abilities unlock

How to Feed your Golem
You must feed your Golem metal ingots in order to keep it functioning. If you fail to feed it, the golem may not function and may need reanimation
How to Resurrect your Golem
Note: Disabled atm
Upon the death of a Golem, it explodes and causes massive area damage to anyone in the area
If your Golem dies it may need repairs and reanimation to make it function again

UO Darwinism, Ultima Online, custom golem crafting system
Basic Golem Crafting
Note: We are updating the details of this system
Tinkers can create a special "pet" called a golem that can be transferred to other players. In essence, a golem is an amalgamation of machination and magic. They are created much like any other tinkered object by using various parts and tools; however, they will also follow pet commands.
In order to create a basic golem, you will need to be at least a Tinker with 100 tinkering skill, and you will need the following components:
- A Clockwork Assembly
- A power crystal
- Metal ingots
- 5 gears
To create the golem, double-click on the clockwork assembly kit. If you have the required components, a golem will appear beside your character. If you are missing any of the components, you will receive a message that will inform you of which component(s) you need.
