The Tower Golem waits at the top of Battle Towers guarding a large chest and serves as a tower boss. The Golem resembles a large, humanoid figure made entirely out of stone brick or smooth stone half slabs. If it takes damage or sees a player, it will immediately become hostile.

An 'Ultra' Tower Golem, a very rare find.

The Tower Golem has two methods of dealing damage. With the first, specifically targeted towards the player, it can do a powerful close range melee attack and launch explosive fireballs. These are similar to a Ghast's projectiles, but they cannot be deflected. This mix of melee and ranged attack can do heavy damage if the player is not adequately protected.

In addition, the Tower Golem can rampage and destroy blocks. Ultimately, it will wreck the tower and its chests. This also creates a serious risk of fall damage.

Once the Tower Golem falls, its tower will start to crumble, and a warning message will appear in the chat. The top half of the tower gradually explodes, with loud cracking sounds. Loot from the Golem commonly consists Half Slabs, 8-10 diamonds, redstone, and other mineral goods, and the chest (the top chest) that it guards has very rare items.

An easy cheated way how to beat Tower Golem, if he will not spot you, the tower will not fall.

In general, it is not advised to use any form of projectile and ranged attack against a Golem. However, an enchanted Legia Bow can still deal a great amount of damage. 

An effective method of attack is to lure the Golem onto the bottom floor. From there, melee is an easier option. Do not run away; its explosive long-range shots will make it very difficult to re-approach the Golem. Full, durable armor and a heavy sword (e.g. diamond broadsword) is recommended.


  • When Tower Golem is attacked with an acid from Xeno's Reliquary, and he will not spot you (or not attack you), the message by defeating him will not appear, even the tower will not fall, so you can keep the tower then.
