    Default Re: Slaughtering Constructs with Magic

    Grease is just a debuff; a golem failing his save doesn't mean you win. What you need instead is Otiluke's resilient sphere. Or at level 8 there is Otiluke's telekinetic sphere. On a failed save the golem is just plain done, and with a golem's reflex save that is very likely. Slaughter his friend and return to him at your leisure, or if he is your only opponent then sphere him halfway through the fight and heal up. Then drop the sphere.

    Against multiple constructs generic crowd control works great, and almost all of them are SR no and many have no save or have a reflex save. For actually damaging the golems, that's what the fighter is for. You can help out a little bit but he does it better so why bother? If anything you might haste the party or greater heroism him.
