Perfect Cheap Weap for IG?

After a discussion earler this month where a fellow forum member stated the obvious fact that if an IronG ever died I could just summon a Gumby to replace him I decided to experiemtn with Iron a bit.

I found this unique ogre maul and made an Iron G out of it. He has now lived through countless mf/key runs, and 2 uber trists.

The item? Windhammer Ogre Maul. 50%CB and 33% lvl22 Twister for stun. I have to admit, I truly am humbled. The best part? The item is non-expensive (I've found 2 more since that 1 and am keeping them in case this one dies at uber meph or something). Just wondered if anyone had any comments or other good cheap weapons to suggest. The only other ones I know are ribcracker, bonesnap, and (of course) the IK maul.

Anything with CB, really...

Most of the mauls that I can think of are pretty good for making Iron Golems.

ALL of the old good uniques (the ones that were superceded by runewords and no one wants anymore) are PERFECT for iron golems, every time I find a new kewl little maul or axe that I dont need, I make rusry out of it, and run around a bit with a cool damage dealing golem until he eventually dies either to IM or in duels. Rusty is my favorite golem, its just I only summon him when I have something that is worthy of his name :laugh:

Bogie,

Yep IK mauls are always mentions, and for good reason. I installed a drop mod for single player just to mess around with IG...Found Rattlecage (unique gothic plate) It has 25% CB, okay defence for keeping rusty alive and hit causes monsters to flee 40%. Monsters run away from him and he has cruching blow...all in a cheap low lvl unique :)

would he gain the extra attack speed from IK maul too?

also, does IG take properties from runes/gems socketed into the item?

at what skill levels for IG/GM?

another question.. if you summon it with a skill shrine effect, does it retain those higher stats forever?

i leave mine at lvl 1. anymore is usually a waste unless you want to build a golemancer.

and yes, stats will stay if you raise it at a high lvl.

If your want your rusty to survive better then add some points into GM
As for pre-buf rusty, it works. However, each time you join a game it is respawned; therefore the states depends on +skill you have the moment you join a game.

Yes, another maul, I know someone who is a huge fan of making Iron Golems out of BoneSnap. He has like 2 mules full of BoneSnap Mauls just for making golems, haha.
