Arcanite golem

The Arcanite Golem, is a type of Golem in Warcraft III. It has a distinct red coloration over the silver parts, suggesting that it is based on a form of metal. The golem is similar in appearance and size to the Siege Golem. Only it is much, much redder. The similarities can be confirmed if one were to open the World Editor's object editor. Here, the Siege Golem has the same base material as the Arcanite Golem. However, the Arcanite Golem is nowhere to be found in the files. Suggesting a recolour of the standard golem, as well as an HP buff from the standard 4200 HP, to the 5000 HP on the Arcanite.


The Arcanite Golem was killed by Vashj and Kael'thas in the Dungeons of Dalaran underneath the city of Dalaran. It was guarding treasure in a locked room. It is the second highest level Golem in the game. The first being two level 12 Siege Golems in the Frozen Throne expansion pack at the Magistrates Temple.
