Re: YAVP: OgGl of Oka (3 runes)

Ahh thats a nice Faerie DA for an Ogre, and certainly a fantastic GSC.

I also quite agree on the Large Rocks, they are devestating, especially with Oka topping up the supplies, I've not tried to PProj them but might have to, thats one hell of a smite-style attack.

Ahh the bennu is the one who resurrects. You kill him, he fireballs, then he rises like a pheonix and you get to kill him again with another fireball death-throe. Normally its an annoyance or a threat, but when you are using his death fireball to burn mummies its mainly fun :D
