There are a handful of classes to pick from in the Diablo 4 open beta, and each class is unique in terms of its play style. For example, The Barbarian class is focused on melee combat and attacking your foes head-on. The Necromancer class is focused on summoning minions that fight for you. These minions range from warrior skeletons to undead golems that you raise from the dead. 

Here are the steps that you need to take in order to summon golems in Diablo 4:

  • Since these abilities are limited to each class, it is essential that you pick Necromancer as your starting class if you want to summon golems in Diablo 4.
  • The ability to summon golems is not available right from the start, and in order to unlock it, you must first reach level 25.
  • You will reach level 25 eventually as you clear the main quests and clear out dungeons.
  • Once you are level 25 on your Necromancer, a special quest will be added to your quest log.
  • The quest, Necromancer: Call Of The Night, will have a quest priority, and you will be able to identify it in your main menu.
  • Click on the quest, and it will start tracking a marker on your map, leading you to the location of the quest.

Once you unlock the quest, you have to complete it before having the ability to summon golems in Diablo 4. Here are all the steps that you need to take in order to complete this quest:

  • The marker will lead you to a place near the outskirts of Menestad.
  • Over here, you will notice that there is a Shrine Of Rathma and an NPC waiting for you right beside it.
  • The NPC, Maltorius, claims that he is a teacher who aims to preserve and spread the teachings of Rathma, the first and greatest Necromancer ever to live.

Maltorius gives you the task of collecting 12 Unbroken Bones to form the body of the golems before you proceed to the next step.

  • As you finish talking to him, a few undead enemies will spawn nearby, dropping the Unbroken Bones for you to collect. 
  • Once you are done collecting the 12 Unbroken Bones that you need, go ahead and talk to Maltorius once again.

The next thing Maltorius instructs you to collect is a Vile Artifact that you need in order to give the golems their spirit.

  • The location for the artifact will be automatically highlighted on your map, as you can see in the attached image.
  • Make your way to the marked location and enter the Bitter Cave.

The entrance to the Bitter Cave will be glowing Orange. Enter the cave and move straight ahead. Once you are inside the cave, look for the Jar Of Souls.

  • The Jar Of Souls is the artifact that you need for this quest, and it is in the form of a statue.
  • Once you interact with the Jar Of Souls, enemies will start spawning nearby, and by killing them, you will start to fill up the artifact.
  • There will be a progress bar that informs you how much more souls you need to collect for the artifact.

Once you have filled up the Jar Of Souls, Maltorius will appear right before you and inform you that you are ready to inherit Rathma’s power to summon golems in Diablo 4.

  • He asks you to repeat the following words, “Spirits, I offer you this vessel. Protect us so we may protect the balance.”
  • As soon as you are done repeating the phrase, a powerful golem will spawn right in front of you.

That is all you need to do in order to unlock the ability to summon golems in Diablo 4. Completing the quest also grants you a large amount of EXP and some gold that you can use.

Now you have learned how to summon golems. The next step is to learn how to utilize them properly. Here are all the steps that you need to take in order to use this skill:

  • If you are playing on PC, press the S key, and it will bring up the skill menu.
  • Over here, you can see your newly learned skill, Summoning Golems.
  • Drag this skill to an active skill slot that you want to assign to it.
  • Now that you have the skill equipped, press the designated key when you are in combat, and you will summon your golems.

You can navigate to the Book Of The Dead in the menu and see all the types of golems that you can summon. There are 3 main types of golems in the game that are:

  • Bone Golems: Golems now deal additional damage and slow down enemies within an area.
  • Blood Golems: Golems now have higher health pools and deal more damage to enemies.
  • Iron Golems: The Golems gain resistance to Physical Attacks and grant the players with additional health and mana.

Each of these has its own strengths and weaknesses and you should pick the ones that suit your style. For example, if you are going for a Bone Necromancer build, you should pick the Bone Golem. Similarly, if you are going with a Blood Mist Necromancer Build, you should pick the Blood Golem. These golems complement your build and help you demolish your enemies.
