So we not only have a DPS Golem to practice our rotations, we also have special golems for thieves to practice their stolen skills (perfect for boonthieves) as well as pulsing area damage feature for healers to practice their healing capabilities (some even use this feature to practice their survival skills for tanking, handkiting, etc).
I would like to suggest another golem variety which is a small golem we can use to practice our pushing skills with.
Just a small golem, ho-ho-tron sized golem will do.
And I suggest making this golem immune to damage but can be moved simply by attacking it (similar to Keep Construct’s core) because it should be meant for us to practice our pushing/hard CC skills with. Even though we can spawn regular golems without a defiance bar, it is still immune to every forms of hard CC.
This could be a perfect feature for new players to tackle new roles in raiding, particularly pushing Keep Construct’s Core and Soulless Horror’s Tormented Dead. I personally do not think it is ideal to practice these roles in the actual fight, even in training runs because it will be bothersome to 9 other players who wanted a smooth completion and I can’t help but to feel selfish if I mess up and cause 9 other players to waste their time.
Pushing may look easy, but the reality is that it can be pretty tricky to master as you need to have the right positioning to push your target to where you want it to go. I believe with this new golem feature, we can practice our positioning, CC skills and trial and errors in pushing so we can improve ourselves for the real fight.
PS: Yes, I am aware that the golems in the fractal lobby are prone to hard CC. It may only be good for practicing Tormented Dead pushing, but the arena is too small and limited compared to the aerodrome training area . It’s still nonetheless useful to have a feature where just by attacking it will push it forward so it can be universally beneficial to practice for all forms of pushing mechanics, let it be for existing raid wings and even for future raid wings.
