The Carminite Golem is a mob added by the Twilight Forest mod that is found in Dark Towers scattered throughout the forest. The Carminite Golem has a tendency to spawn in higher floors of Dark Towers in the same areas as where Carminite Ghastlings have a tendency to spawn. The Carminite Golem, in current and older versions, is simply an innately hostile version of the Iron Golem that will attack the player without provocation. It shares a texture with the Iron Golem, with the exception of having "WIP" written across its chest, denoting its WIP status. In 1.16.1, it has a new texture and model.

The Carminite Golem, unlike the Iron Golem, has a definite amount of damage that it can deal; whereas a regular Iron Golem can deal anywhere from 7 (Heart.pngHeart.pngHeart.pngHearthalf.png) to 21 (Heart.png x 10.5) units of damage, the Carminite Golem always deals 9 units (Heart.pngHeart.pngHeart.pngHeart.pngHearthalf.png) of damage. The Carminite Golem's attack also launches the player into the air, meaning that if there is enough ceiling space and the ground is level, the damage that the Golem deals can be augmented by a Hearthalf.png of fall damage, bringing the total damage dealt up to 5 hearts. Thus, a Carminite Golem with these conditions can kill an unarmored player in two hits.'

The Carminite Golem will attack without provocation as it is innately hostile to the player. The Carminite Golem has 40% of the health that a regular Iron Golem does, as it has only 40 units whereas a regular Iron Golem has 100, but can still be a challenge to unarmored or badly equipped players. The Golem is intended to guard higher floors of the Tower from intruders.


  • In earlier versions of the TF mod (1.15.2 to 1.15.3) the Carminite Golem was known as the Tower Golem, and is still referenced in the mod's code as such. It is important to note that the Carminite Golem is only known as the Carminite Golem in 1.15.4 (the most current TF version) and is still referenced as Tower Golem in earlier versions; it is also important to note that the Tower Golem is still the Tower Golem in all current FTB packs, as 1.15.4 is not yet added to any FTB packs.
  • Iron Golems will attack Carminite Golems, as Iron Golems see them as an enemy to the player. Carminite Golems, however, will refuse to recognize Iron Golems, even if attacked by them.

Known Bugs/Anomalies[edit]

  • Carminite Golems will refuse to enter water, and will cease moving if they are forced to enter water (e.g. via Water Bucket), presenting a possible tactic to the player for how to deal with Carminite Golems.
