  • Magic Resistance. The necromantic golem has advantage on saving throws against spells and other magical effects.
  • Magic Weapons. The necromantic golem’s weapon attacks are magical.
  • Regeneration. A necromantic golem heals 10 hit point at the start of its turn if it has at least 1 hit point. If the necromantic golem takes radiant damage or damage from holy water, this trait doesn’t function at the start of the necromantic golem’s next turn.

Actions

  • Multiattack. The necromantic golem makes two slam attacks.
  • Slam. Melee Weapon Attack: +9 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 18 (3d8 + 5) bludgeoning damage plus 18 (4d8) necrotic damage.
  • Enervating Ray (1/day). A necromantic golem can unleash a ray of negative energy in a 30-foot line. All creatures along the line take 14 (4d6) necrotic damage and lose 2d4 Constitution. The target dies if this reduces its Constitution to 0. Otherwise, the reduction lasts until the target finishes a short or long rest.
