In alot of posts I read that killing the golem for the buff is a must for some characters. Well maybe not a must, but they recommend it.

I can never solo it, am I missing something?

I normally, as evelynn at level 1, smite, ignite, hate spike x 324234.

This absolutely never works, am I missing something?

The classic functional fixedness trap! Anyway, it's a team game. Some characters can solo the golem at level one, but instead get whoever is laning with you to help kill the golem before they head to their lane. You should be able to down it before your minions get to the end. Optionally, the centre solo character can help you three man it. Edit: This has the additional bonus of giving a bit of experience to your laning partner. Just keep in mind that whoever is tanking the golem will be damaged afterwards, so will likely have to catch up via potions.

eve will not be able to solo golem at level 1. At level 5 its fairly hard to solo golem still (although very feasable if youaresure you won't be attacked by the opposing team during it)

Of course i have yet to spec full +AP flat runes for eve to see if its possible, but the fact the golem still has high health when I was forced to retreat was enough to say its not plausible as eve.

I'd try cloth armor, healpotx3, rally&smite. Even so, I wouldn't bet Eve can handle it.
Ed: I was wrong. Handled it NP. Didn't even need rally.

I have +60HP from Quints and +7.5 Mpen from Marks, and I don't have improved smite, but 21 in offense tree.

Further info: Doran's shield + health pot + smite = win.

Used my level 8 smurf account with 0 runes & 0 masteries, so this can be done by anyone.

OR you could just ask your allies for help like everybody else. that way you don't lose so much hp.

if you didn't know, high elo players ask their allies for help. whether it's possible or not is irrelevant.

Er, quite the reverse, it's what the OP asked.

As for higher ELO games, there's a tremendous difference in the teamwork aspect

Last time I asked my teammates for help with golem I was yelled at for wanting it.

we do things differently in high elo. if you don't come to golem/liz we eat your heads off.

p.s. then we die a little inside from feeling noob because we were matched with such players.

They may have thought Eve is an auto attack champion. Hate Spike spam looks like an attack toggle.
