Acid Absorption: Whenever the golem is subjected to acid damage, it takes no damage and instead regains a number of hit points equal to the acid damage dealt.

Berserk: Whenever the golem starts its turn with 60 hit points or fewer, roll a d6. On a 6, the golem goes berserk. On each of its turns while berserk, the golem attacks the nearest creature it can see. If no creature is near enough to move to and attack, the golem attacks an object, with preference for an object smaller than itself. Once the golem goes berserk, it continues to do so until it is destroyed or regains all its hit points.

Immutable Form: The golem is immune to any spell or effect that would alter its form.

Magic Resistance: The golem has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.

Magic Weapons: The golem's weapon attacks are magical.


Multiattack: The golem makes two slam attacks.

Slam: Melee Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 16 (2d10 + 5) bludgeoning damage. If the target is a creature, it must succeed on a DC 15 Constitution saving throw or have its hit point maximum reduced by an amount equal to the damage taken. The target dies if this attack reduces its hit point maximum to 0. The reduction lasts until removed by the greater restoration spell or other magic.

Haste (Recharge 5-6): Until the end of its next turn, the golem magically gains a +2 bonus to its AC, has advantage on Dexterity saving throws, and can use its slam attack as a bonus action.

The SendingStone review

The Clay Golem is a formidable opponent in Dungeons & Dragons with a high Challenge Rating of 9. Its natural armor of 14 and condition immunities make it a resilient foe in battle. However, its lack of alignment and charisma as well as its low dexterity make it a one-dimensional enemy without much personality. Overall, the Clay Golem is a useful monster for DMs to include in their campaigns for a challenging fight but lacks depth as a larger character in the game.

Clay Golem is D&D (Dungeons & Dragons) 5th edition content, but other TTRPGs may have their own version such as a Clay Golem Pathfinder edition. Want to use Clay Golem in a VTT (virtual tabletop)? Try out SendingStone for free today!
