Horrific Stench (poison) Aura 2

Any enemy that uses an attack power while in the aura takes 10 poison damage, or 20 poison damage while the ooze is bloodied.


While squeezing, the ooze moves at full speed rather than half speed, it doesn’t take the -5 penalty to attack rolls, and it doesn’t grant combat advantage for squeezing.
