Description

  1. Start a new game with Abdel.
  2. Give Abdel some XP: SetCurrentXP("200000")
  3. Level up Abdel so he survives being attacked.
  4. Create a Flesh Golem: C:CreateCreature("golemf")
  5. Allow the golem to attack Abdel.

Observed

When the golem attacks it taunts like an Ogrillon with the line "You mess with me, you mess with you!"

Expected

Golems should not taunt. They should not talk with any emotion or wit.

Notes

Internal report #21701.

Not sure about this. For example, www.dandwiki.com/wiki/SRD:Flesh_Golem states they can emit a hoarse roar. On this basis, some supporting evidence for the expected state above would be needed.
Thanks

True enough, but I don't think they should taunt you with the line: "You mess with me, you mess with you!" as they attack. Taunts and such are very uncharacteristic of golems; unless they are like super well made by a really powerful Netherese mage or a mage who has dedicated their life to golem making and has become a master at it. Mind you: I would not object if they said something like "Kill for master!" or similar as they attacked.
