The Sand Golem serves as the bosses on Sky Temple and Tomb of the Spider Queen. They first spawn after 5:00 minutes into the game and respawn after 5:00 minutes.

The Sand Golem boss is almost exactly like the Grave Golem, however instead of a root attack, it is able to summon whirlwinds. Those Tornadoes spawn on heroes and move around, pushing heroes away while also dealing moderate damage to them. If you position your team on the enemy side of the map, then move to yours after the tornado spawns, it can help you instead of hindering you. This way the tornado blocks the enemies if they try to invade and it gives your team a safe retreat if needed.
