Baldur's Gate Wiki

Lesser Clay Golems are a type of golem in Shadows of Amn.

This particular category of Golem is a lesser version of a fully developed/constructed Clay Golem. They are 100% resistant to magic and completely resist Cold damage and Electricity damage. In the basic and unmodded EE games, they have the same appearance.

The golem's melee attack dishes out 2d8 blunt damage, and it is modified by their superior strength. The fist attack counts as a non-magical item for the purpose of what it can strike. They typically only strike once per round.

This golem has no special abilities like its more advanced variety.

The Golem Construction for Spellcasters mod places several of these golems in various locations in the saga. It also changes the animation to that of a smaller version of a clay golem. The mod also introduces four levels of Clay Golems in the game, which you may construct as a mage (with the correct book, components and experience level). These are "lesser clay golem", "clay golem", "greater clay golem" and "perfect clay golem". These golems are then able to travel with the party, similar to how a familiar would.
