The very substance of the more rare and expensive Obsidian Gargoyles is far more durable. It also makes them impervious to fire and cold effects as well as to lightning spells.OffBck

The obsidian gargoyle is the upgraded verson of the stone gargoyle, the second-level creature of the Academy in Heroes of Might and Magic V.

The immunities and the increased defense and hit points makes this a very time-consuming unit to finish off, giving your other units and hero the time to win the battle. It still doesn't do much damage, unfortunately.
