During The Bird and the Beast world event, players could use votes in the Golem Construction interface to construct golems, Bandosian golems and Armadylean golems, for their faction. This could be done by interacting with the partially completed golem on the first floor of the base tower, or by talking to the Bandosian golem master or the Armadylean golem master. Voting was done every 2-3 hours.
Golems were custom built mechanical monsters which defend caravans and faction sites. A golem was constructed from a head, a pair of arms, a pair of legs and a body. Each of these had three options: offensive, defensive, or special. Players voted on the favourite for each limb, and when the votes reached 100% for that limb, that option is selected. Each option determined how the golem behaved and attacked. Once all limbs reached 100%, the golem was completed and could perform its duties.
Defensive golems teleported to any friendly convoy and followed the caravan as an extra bodyguard, attacking players, golems or other NPCs. Offensive golems teleported to any enemy convoy that is stationary and attacked that convoy starting with the golem, then the bodyguards, then the caravan.
