Well wizzy has 75res all and that IG is virtually elemental immune :p Most people look for mods like crushing blow, high damage, etc when making iron golems. I liked Bonesayer Blade Gothic Axe IG for its ed vs undead and holy bolt and spiky was like an unjust god during pindle runs hehe

I did try this some time ago (not with wizzy, but an indestructable axe). Sadly, it didn't work. As I now understand it, using something indestructable would only prevent the golem getting worn out from use, which it doesn't anyway.

Popular choices are a good res pally shield, making it immune to elemental damage, or as previously mentioned, an item with lots of cb.

Don't waste a wizzy for the Res. It only takes a little res all and Summon Resist to make an IG completely immune to the elements. I finally found a Woe Stave and plan on trying it out. Unfortunately, I think it blinds which is going to be annoying when it cancels out amp damage, but I suspect all that other stuff it does is pretty darn cool. Also, armor from the whitstan's set gives static field when struck. That will add up to a lot of damage return in Hell.

Nice thought but sadly it doesnt work (like most people have already established). Not that I use iron golem that much but I find ik mauls to be effective, theyre cheap and fairly easy to find.

It personally makes me sick that people find these so called brilliant weapons all the time and IG them.

Crushing Blow, Prevent Monster Heal, High Res... blah blah... basically, use something you would use when making a Barbarian, as he is, afterall... a Melee Minion...

J/w does +life weapons and stuff give + life to the golem?

Also, what is the iron golem's hp on lvl 20? and around lvl 30?

fire golem around 30 is about 5K, and iron at lvl 12 ish is also 5k o_O

Yes, +life items will increase Iron Golem's life, but not worthwhile. Iron and Fire golems get life boosts from points in Golem Mastery and hard points in Blood Golem. I don't reccomend Blood Golem points to boost golems though. In normal/nightmare/hell they have different life values. I have one hard point in Iron Golem with over lvl 40 Golem Mastery, giving my Iron around 10,000 life in hell. Of course, gumby can have way more than that though. My Mana-golem isn't fully indestructable, but he usually only dies when I do.

lol, iron golem is already industructible with elite items + high lvl golem mastery. My amn'amn' ik maul iron golem never die to monster unless he got cursed by iron madien or i die.

iron madien can be offset by a simple life tap.

the thing u want from weapon is: it is two-handed, ias, life leech, deadly strike, crushing blow, prevent monster heal, AR, aura, and ethereal. (they just look awesome when summoning out with eth items. :clap: )
