The hobgobins attack in tandem, using illusion based attacks to warp and control the field to their advantage. Each goblin has it's own HP bar and must be defeated separately. However smart players will focus fire on one in particular to get an early advantage in battle.
The top hobgoblin is known as 'The Claw' and is the leader of the trio. As the name would suggest he is the physical attacker, raking foes and gouging eyes with blinding 3 stooges-esque jabs.
'Sniffles' is the middle hobgoblin, and manipulates the psychic streams flowing around all life. Note that these illusions will not work on robots, inanimate objects, or Kathy Ireland.
'Bounce-Bounce' is the put-upon bottom hobgoblin, who drew the short straw of forming the legs. He has the most health, and can swiftly backslide to avoid damage.
Resilient to many types of physical damage, they can only be reliably harmed by explosions and rakes.
