Recommended Spells/Weaponry to fight them

Special Abilities

Berserk (Ex)

When a clay golem enters combat, there is a cumulative 1% chance each round that its elemental spirit breaks free and the golem goes berserk. The uncontrolled golem gains the effects of haste, and goes on a rampage, attacking the nearest living creature or smashing some object smaller than itself if no creature is within reach, then moving on to spread more destruction. Once a clay golem goes berserk, no known method can reestablish control.

Cursed Wound (Ex)

When a clay golem lands a critical hit, the target is inflicted with cursed wounds. Cursed wounds cannot be healed naturally and must be removed by a Remove Curse spell before the target can receive any positive energy healing.

Immunity to Magic (Ex)

A clay golem is immune to any spell or spell-like ability that allows Spell Resistance. In addition, certain spells and effects function differently against the creature, as noted below.

A Disintegrate spell deals full damage, and clay golems have lower then average Fortitude saves for a construct.

Any magical attack against a clay golem that deals acid damage heals 1 point of damage for every 3 points of damage it would otherwise deal. A clay golem golem gets no saving throw against magical attacks that deal acid damage.

Unlike in Pen-and-Paper D&D rules, in DDO most damage spells are not affected by Spell Resistance. To combat this, Clay Golems instead have massive elemental absorption, 50% Absorption for all Energy types except those specifically noted above as otherwise. This includes but is not limited to: Electric, Fire, Sonic, Light, Alignment, and even Force damage. Untyped spells that do not allow a Spell Restistance check bypasses this immunity.
