    Iron Golem + BO = fail

    According to Necro Pet Calculator, IG with maxed out Golem Mastery and +9 skills, will have 7693 hit points on Hell.

    Now, ~18 BO is supposed to give +71% increased life.

    However, the same calculator claims that IG after slvl 18 BO has 8388 hit points.

    This is a pitiful 9% increase! Is this calculation correct?

    I was under the impression that Iron Golem gets the full benefit of Battle Orders.

    The bonus that BO gives to minions is applied to the base health of the minion. IG has pretty low base health that doesn't increase with more points into the skill. The life added by GM isn't counted when the BO boost is applied.

    No, it is not: the Necromancer Pet Calculator incorrectly sums +% life from Golem Mastery and the Blood Golem synergy bonus with +% Maximum Life from Battle Orders (and Oak Sage), when the two modifiers are multiplicative (+% life from GM and BG multiplies Iron Golem life first, then +% Maximum Life from BO (and OS) multiplies that total).
