Death later on is far far worse on hybrids than life, and far far worse on pure casters than chaos.
I know this is pretty old but I remembered the conversation & thought I'd dig it up & point out that Oberon is not in fact Nether resistant (except a partial for the evil flag, but nether storm is 750 to start with & cheap with a massive radius) nor is he darkness resistant (& darkness storm is pretty cheap & reasonable against something with out the resist).

Interestingly enough the serpent himself doesn't have darkness resist though it would take a fair few dark storms to bring him down that way.
