It also makes golems much more manageable:
1. wait for golem to approach
3. move out of the way (golems that can't see you will move in the direction they were attacked from)
4. abuse 's' until the golem is next to you again*
* this reminds me that 's'earching is far too quick; it should take as long as waiting with '.', or at least swap the times of s/. since searching taking less time than "waiting" is just weird.
