    Iron Golem: Death tokens its property?

    Please excuse me if this question sounds noobish to you:
    Do you lose the item that was used to make iron golem when it dies and therefore the item is lost forever? Can you just recast the iron golem after it dies and it'll still be the same one that you've created previous from your favor metal weapon/armor?

    Why I asked this is becouse I see there are many fancy options in making a iron golem with rune word that gives aura such Fanatacism from Beast for example. However, it will be utterly pointless if the iron golem is alike characters that a person plays on Hardcore, where death tokens your properties permenantly.

    Thanks,
    XT

    The item is definitely lost, that's why you don't see people using expensive items for iron golems unless they feel confident that it won't be killed very often. Plus occasionally the golem can be lost in between realm games

    ok, it's not worth it in investing iron golem then.
    I was seriously thinking of making it godly with rune word worth HRs.
    Maybe the only Golem that I'll use is Clay Golem for boss fight.

    If you're rich, you can make some good aura golems. Then it'll be worth it

    True, but on the other hand, If I'm really that rich like I was in the last ladder which I ended up with lots of left over HRs, I probably wouldn't care or need a "godly" iron golem anyways. I'll probably already have perfect runewords on the necro and his merc, plus skill GCs with life, 20 stats Torch, 20 Stats Anni..etc which is already an overkill for daily PvM MF.

    My Necro is just over level 30 and I realized that iron golem is actually a prerequisite to revive so I just put one point in there and one point in blood golem.

    In my opinion playing with my necro thus far, I think blood golem is a fairly nice companion for regular gameplay. It doesn't die as easily as clay golem and its life steal is also linked to my necro. But like others have suggested, clay golem is a nice choice for boss fight.
