The terrifying harvest golems are mechanical constructs programmed to hunt down and terminate the human inhabitants of Westfall. Though their origin is uncertain, some believe that only the wily goblins could have created these mechanical monstrosities. Others speculate that the Defias Brotherhood had the harvest golems built to scare off the local inhabitants of Westfall so that they could run their smuggling operations with greater impunity. Whatever the case may be, the harvest golems have done their jobs well - eliciting terror in anyone foolish enough to roam the fallow fields of Westfall alone.
The Foe Reaper is a special kind of golem designed by the Defias Brotherhood to be more deadly than the standard model. The Pet Reaper 0.9 was the earliest model developed of which later versions would be inspired by. The Foe Reaper 4000 was the official model that would be sent out in the land of Westfall and it can still be found roaming the area to this very day. When the Defias Brotherhood re-emerged, they used the schematics of the Foe Reaper 4000 to create the Foe Reaper 5000. Even though the Foe Reaper 5000 was dismantled, the few parts that remained were combined together to create the Foe Reaper 50.

In the RPG
Goblins created the first harvest golems to serve as guardians, setting the constructs to patrol the fields of Westfall. The goblins' first attempts were too effective; the golems killed so quickly and ruthlessly that no victims remained to spread tales of the horrifying guardians. Goblin tinkers thus hamstrung one of their creations just long enough for a survivor to spread the word. Within weeks, the fields of Westfall stood empty save for their silent, shambling caretakers. Harvest golems have since spread to other territories, leaving fear and mutilated corpses in their wake.
A harvest golem poses as a simple scarecrow long enough for its victims to enter partial charge range. It then charges, utilizes its backstab ability to rip the throat out of its nearest opponent. While mindless, a harvest golem possesses a degree of innate cunning a touch above that of most golems, modifying its tactics somewhat in response to its enemies' attacks. A harvest golem never retreats.
A harvest golem seems a simple scarecrow, but a crafter must lace its innards with sachets of expensive powders and ground herbs. In addition, the caster inscribes animating runes inside the golem's fabric body, which requires a rare ink made of powdered arcanite.
- There were multiple models used for harvest golems prior to patch 8.0.1: the most commonly used scarecrow-like one, one which lacks coverings and the hat, and a re-skin of the second version that rearranges the textures to make it seem less complete (with a hole for a face). As of patch 8.0.1 the models now primarily differ in the design of their hands, while their bodies are now uniform.
