The golem control rod is a magical object which allows the bearer to control one or multiple golems.

Information Edit

It is a faceted cylinder of solid crystal, deep blue in color and cool to the touch in which dwarven runes are engraved on it. Control rods are ancient objects which were created simultaneously with the golems. It is unknown however if the knowledge for their creation is lost or new control rods can be created.

Other references Edit

Bah! You are not the only master smith here, Caridin! Golems, obey me! Attack! ―Branka
A control rod! But... my friend, you must help me! I cannot stop her alone! ―Caridin
  • It is used by Branka as a storyline element during A Paragon of Her Kind, though it does not actually exist in-game.

The Golem in Redcliffe Edit

A faceted cylinder of solid crystal, deep blue in color and cool to the touch.
  • Control Rod, while not visible in-game, is located inside the non-interactive keg in the kitchen of Redcliffe's tavern. It was scripted to become interactive after discovering clues around Redcliffe Village and the the Warden spoke to Lloyd and Bella about the crystal rod. It is a remnant of the original process to recruit Shale, before the golem was cut from the base game.

The Golems of Amgarrak Edit

I found a golem control rod. The golems are keeping it away for now. There's a shaft of light here. I can see my escape but I cannot reach it. The ground is too damp, the rocks too slick. ―Darion's Journal
