This article is about the creature found in the Rift. For the scripting engine, see Lich (software).

A Lich can be found in the Scatter in the Rift. This is a highly intelligent spell caster who went to great lengths to gain power and longevity, at the cost of his soul.

Liches can spawn as frostborne or infernal, depending on the temperature of the Scatter at the time.

Hunting strategies

In order to get lich tasks through the Adventurer's Guild, one will have to be actively asking for tougher jobs.

Liches are immune to spells under level 10.

Other information

Looting the liches is tricky. First, each lich drops a phylactery upon death and the phylactery must be destroyed before you can loot the corpse. Any attempt to do so beforehand fails and gives you RT. Destroying the phylactery involves attacking or bashing it with some sort of weapon, a process that requires significant RT. The amount of damage done to the phylactery and the amount of RT incurred depends on the heft of the weapon used. I pull out a runestaff, which takes three to four attacks at 5-7 seconds each. If you dally in destroying the phylactery, the lich will return to life at full health about 30 seconds after its death. Even if you manage to destroy the phylactery, the lich can still decay before you get a chance to loot it if you took too long.

Lichs are extraplanar beings.
