How to defeat Grym

You have to take into account a few things when fighting Grym:

  • When you activate the lava and Grym appears, your terrain will be limited to the Circles surrounding the "anvil" part of the forge. Avoid passing through the lava at all costs!
  • When Grym is standing on lava, it gains a status effect called Superheated. Only when this status effect is active you can damage the golem. This will cause Grym to become vulnerable to Bludgeoning damage, lower his Armour Class and make resistant to Thunder, Cold and Force. He will remain immune to all other elements.
  • Grym will attempt to attack the character that attacks it, (and hits it), first each turn and set it as "Prime Target". This can be exploited to use the anvil to deal massive damage to Grym
  • Position a character near the Forge Lever and,  another one near the anvil's strike position. Lure Grym there by attacking it with that character and, once the golem is in position, pull the Forge Lever. The anvil strikes down, dealing 100 points of damage aprox and leaving the golem Prone.
  • After Grym lose enough HP, some mephit will appear and attack.
  • If the Lava is removed, interact with the Lava Valve to refill the chamber and force Grym to walk over it.
  • Grym won't take damage from the Anvil if he doesn't have the Superheated status effect.

      weak to hammers and maces but you don't want to be at close quarters at low levels
      it's a good try for boss fight but in a way relies too much on RNG...

        This is honestly stupid. Why is the protector of the forge weak to the environment he is meant to protect?

        Just get him out of the underdark, to ANY place where there is no lava, mass manufacture these things, and you have invulnerable golems you can conquer any city with
