This is basically a snow golem, but with arrows. the damage arrows do is the same as if coming out of a dispenser, and it is crafted like an iron golem, with obsidian in the middle top. It has a range of 10 blocks, with 15 health. It won't move, but you probably want to protect and close it off to protect from mobs. is has a fire rate of one arrow every 5 seconds.
It is a good idea. But be a bit more creative, like make the appearance look different, instead of a iron golem, but I do see where you are going, so I will excuse this part. I feel like it is a bit unbalanced. Like it can't move, and FIFTEEN health! maybe 20-25.
If you were to make another golem, it should be one that's creative and original. This "Arrow Golem" Is just built the same way as an Iron Golem, has the skin of a Snow Golem, and fires arrows instead of Snowball. And to add, this may seem underpowered since it requires an Obsidian to make. Not saying that Obsidian is hard to obtain, it's hard to collect and rather strong. Overall, It should be more a creative, original Golem with a unique power to it.
I'd actually like this idea if it was fleshed out a bit more. A golem that can shoot arrows at hostile mobs!
If it was crafted in a more unique way-- say, a cobblestone fence with a dispenser on top, and a pumpkin on top of all of that. Then if you made the golem weak-- that is, not many hearts-- it'd balance the fact that it can keep mobs at bay from a range, which is actually a really useful power.
Also, I realize to craft a golem with just a dispenser and cobblestone fence would be a bit OP considering you could just mass produce these things and they'd shoot infinite arrows-- a quick fix would just to make it so you'd have to right click on the golems WITH arrows, making them able to shoot that allotted amount. This might be tedious, but it would give more use to arrows and late-game players with tons of resources would be able to use these heartily.
Take some of my ideas for your suggestion, if you like. I'd like it, certainly, because frankly the game needs more golems. They're just cool and with enough balance are perfect for the game.
EDIT: oops, I forgot... 25% support. I like the idea, but it's unoriginal.
yes, i talk in all lowercase. that doesn't mean i have bad grammar, it just means you'll read my text in a way reminiscent of the demeanor i want to convey. i do art, too, you can see that here or by looking up "bumblebeebowties" on tumblr, instagram, twitter, pinterest, or facebook.
