What is the purpose of Siege Golems?

What should siege golems be used for? Once they have broken down the gates/walls, what is their purpose when fighting the lord? I am just looking at  their skills and it looks like a player would do more damage/be more useful  (especially if supporting) if they were just playing with their actual skills? Should the player remain in the golem suit when at the lord or get out and fight as normal?

Omegas aren't terrible at fighting, but they're mainly tanks with 300k hp, decent amount of CC, lot of armor, can't die if mastery. You must realise skills can only hit 5 targets so 2 omegas would already reduce 40% of the incoming damage to a group if they tank every skill.

 

Alphas and guild golems are terrible and too slow tho.

 

I would however recommend spreading the golems across the lord room for following reasons:

- Low HP players can go inside the golems to survive

- They can be used to stomp or ress downstates without fear of dying or getting killed

- The lord won't reset combat until all golems are dead if your group has to leave lord room for some reason

- Eles can use downed mistform in them to rally

Golems are a DPS sponge. The player will do more DPS while attacking. Golems for defense can stand in and soak more damage to allow more time for people to react and be used to deter attackers that aren't paying attention to range.

If you already have one built, golems can be decent for contesting long enough to get backup. They can also be used for counter sieging when it's too hot to try doing so on foot. Hitting lord though... not so much, you do a lot more dps on foot even if you're not a fully geared for it.
