How To Fix Golem Not Spawning In Diablo 4 (Solution)

Once you have completed the Call of the Underworld quest in Diablo 4, you will notice a Golem spawning next to the Jar of Souls in the Bitter Cave. However, this is Maltorius' Golem and not your own. This has understandably caused a lot of confusion among players on Forums, some of who are wondering why their Golem is not spawning in Diablo 4. Fortunately, this issue is not likely a bug (thankfully). Instead, the solution is simply that you have not yet equipped it.

How To Equip Golem In Diablo 4: Fix Golem Not Spawning

To equip the Golem in Diablo 4, open the Skills tab by pressing the "S" button on the keyboard (default) or "L3" on the controller and move the Golem into your desired Skills slot. It's important to note that you must also select one of the three upgrade skills for the Golem in the Book of the Dead. From this menu, you'll also notice three different types of Golems: Bone, Blood, and Iron, which can be unlocked at higher levels in the full version of the game.

For the Bone Golem in Diablo 4, the upgrade skills are: (1) Each time your Golum takes up to 20% of its Maximum Life as damage, it sheds a Corpse (2) Your Golem gains 10% Maximum Life and the number of Thorns inherited from you is increased from 30-50%, and (3) You can sacrifice the Golem for 10% increased Attack Speed, but lose the ability to summon a Golem.

In addition to equipping the Golem in the Skills tab and upgrading the skill in the Book of the Dead in Diablo 4, it's also important to ensure that the Raise Skeleton ability is equipped. Without this, the Golem may not spawn properly. However, if you have done all these steps and are still experiencing problems with the Golem not spawning in Diablo 4, then it's likely a bug that Blizzard will need to patch in a future update. In this regard, you can try restarting the game or contacting Blizzard support for further assistance. And that's everything you need to know about how to fix the Golem not spawning issue in Diablo 4.
