Speaking of releases, here's my plan:

The first version will be when I judge the basic stuff good enough (so I still need to do 2 pets including the mage, the other is currently a placeholder already in the UI on the screenshot; also an aura; finally the spells for the mage) to go live.

Second version will hopefully include the ability to roll affixes/suffixes for the mastery. If impossible (which I doubt to be the case) I'll skip this. Also balancing the skills if needed.

Third version will be focused on polishing (creating new UI icons and perhaps even textures). And balancing the skills/item rolls as needed.

Then I don't know. I'll see later.

Well then, after failing again to make a buff for the healing skill, I'll make the exclusive skill!
Which golem do you plan on using for your model, if you choose to build it from scratch?

Probably Clay Golem as it's simpler.

With that I'll probably have to make an animation set, and I have 0 knowledge when it comes to that.

Anywho it's not for now and might be for never so don't get your hopes up. When I release the first version I'll tell my future plans and the golem might not be in it.

Well, i cant wait to see it. Hopefully golem makes it through, or a type of golem beast...

Good luck to your endeavors.

Animation sets are simple but the problem is atm we cannot import animations, only use existing ones and many creatures in the game cannot share animations. Luckily, the already existing golem animations are pretty much exactly what you want so you're fine I think. What exactly were your plans for that?

As for the other golems (to anyone who was wondering) - iron golem is probably not a possibility to see in GD as it was in D2, the Fire Golem sure. Blood Golem, sure. But iron requires an item for it to be summoned and I don't think this can be done in GD, perhaps with lua but .. i dunno.

Already existing golem animations? Where? I don't remember them existing. Is it TQ specific? The plans were just to make animations for a pet. I also had the idea of making a skeleton dog.

Is Blood Golem possible to do, really? If I do a golem I'd like it to be special and so to use the Blood Golem as a base.

Maybe be able to summon it with... iron bits. Takes a bit of money to summon an iron golem . Just an idea.

Would like to see my pets drawing aggro from the mobs and not have to spend so much time evading them. Any buffs from pets to be noticeable. Ability to equip pets if possible. Pet enhancements independent from player items allowing player to equip any armour he chooses.
Hope that helps.

I would love the pets to grow aggro but I'm not sure how it's done to be fair, and it's really annoying. So if anyone knows how to I'd love to know too.
EDIT: Nevermind I can make the pets taunt!

Buffs from pets for you and other pets? If that's what you want then you got it.

I don't think it's possible but for the ice skeletor I made him equip different weapons every x levels. At max level he have a chance to spawn with 1 of 5 different weapons and 1 of 2 shields. May increase that in the future. May also be too OP.

Well I don't really like the idea of making pet enhancements independent. Plus if you were to have independent buffs, the guy who equips gear that enhance pet abilities would be way too fucking OP. So no unless someone can prove me it's a bad design idea.

Yeah you've never seen those golems ingame? There's a few of them just after you meet edmund shanks (i think thats his name) as well as the ancient shambler. Just reuse those, they work well for what you're looking for imo. I mean it's your best option since like I said, importing animations and meshes are out of the question currently.

And yes, blood golem to my knowledge should be doable, it won't be perfect but it would be close. From what I remember, the golem has a special formula for his life steal, but that is not a possibility. Though what you CAN do is make a melee skill and just make that his normal attack. In the pet skill config, you can have it set so it will chain abilities, so right after he hits with that melee skill, he will cast a heal. Make that heal instant cast and you won't even see it animate. I believe you can even set it so it will ONLY cast that to the summoner. So, pretty damn close.

Heck, you can take it one step further. Make the heal skill an ability the player can level himself. Leave the golem at level 1 and max the heal, to be a wimpy golem but with a great heal.
