|Source Mod||Thaumcraft 3|
The Wood Golem Worker is a Golem from Thaumcraft 3, useful for keeping an area clear of dropped items. When placed on a chest, the Wood Golem Worker will pick up any items which drop on the ground up to 10 blocks away (16 blocks with Perception) and store them in that chest.
Assigning a Wood Golem Worker to a double chest can be an alternative to using a Hungry Chest when the additional storage space is required. If items are expected to drop in anything larger than a 1-block area, the Wood Golem will be more useful than an Obsidian Transport Pipe.
A Wood Golem can be very useful to collect Sulfur Goo, by placing Sulfur Torchs around a chest with a Wood Golem assigned to it. It can also be used in conjunction with a Straw Golem Worker to automate farming.
A basic Wood Golem Worker will store any loose items it can in the assigned chest. A Wood Golem Worker crafted with an Intelligence Golem Animation Core can be limited to storing only the two items specified in its chest.
Wood Golem Workers can also store items in a Barrel when placed on top of one, which can be useful for cheap storage or if you don't want to make an Intelligence core just for one item, such as when collecting eggs.
Wood golems can only be crafted from Greatwood. They are only your first step in Golemancy and their uses are fairly limited.
When placed on a chest or similar container the wood golem will keep a close watch on its surroundings. If it spots a loose item on the ground it will rush towards it and pick it up and return it to the container it was assigned to.
For containers that can accept items on different sides (like a furnace), the golem will place the items it picks up into the same side it was placed on. So placing a wood golem on top of a furnace will cause it to place items it picks up into the furnaces top slot.
