Gogs and Magogs are level 2 creatures of Inferno. They are recruited from the Hall of Sins.
"Gogs and magogs hurl fireballs and attack with their claws at close range. Magog fireblasts affect the target hex and its surrounding hexes like a Fireball spell." RoE manual
Heroes with a specialty
- Calh the Demoniac has gogs as a specialty, which increases the attack and defense skills of any gogs or magogs for each level attained after 2nd level, and gives them a speed bonus of 1.
In Horn of the Abyss Magogs can shoot fireball at any hex of the battlefield except for its own hex and adjacent ones (unless Bow of the Sharpshooter is present). Targeting dialogue is called by pressing G. Note that, different to the death cloud of Liches from Necropolis, this Fireball does friendly fire. However, creatures immune to fire can be damaged only by a central hex:
Tactics and info
However, the fireball effect is considered to be a creature ability rather than a spell, and therefore creatures immune to fire or spells are fully affected by the Magog's attack. Although Magogs cannot directly attack allied creatures, they can potentially harm them if hero's creatures are located within the radius of Magogs' fireball.
