Omega Siege Golem (upgraded Alpha Golem)

These cost ~5g+ to make (or a tonne of luck with the jumping puzzles)

but holy sheet if they aren't awesome! (imagine 3-4 of these rolling into a keep!)

More like crawling in.. these things are slow, heavy, clunky thinks... There shield against projectiles is interesting... wonder if it would counter a lot of arrow carts, etc.

Guardian's anti-projectile stuff doesn't do anything versus arrow carts or any ground-targeted aoe so I'd be surprised if the golems did.

gaurdians anti-projectile stuff isnt a consumable which costs a bloody fortune to make though :)

it'd help against ballistas maybe but yeh still AoE vulnerable. Not that you use seige golems in that situation, super fast strikes are what they are for (the freakin things can use portals!WTF)
