Lich Boss Battle Guide

Holy is a Godsend

Like the Dragon Zombie, the Lich is an Undead type, so it will take only 1 damage from any attack until it has been hit by Holy. The Dungeon provides ample opportunities to find the Magicite needed for Holy, but in case you don't have it, you're better off repeating the Dungeon from the start.

Hit the orbs on the left and right, then cast Holy

At the beginning of the fight, the Lich will be surrounded by a protective sphere, and won't take any damage at all. You'll need to first target the orbs on the left and right sides of the stage to destroy the protective sphere. Then is your chance to strike – cast Holy on the Lich to hit him where the sun don't shine!

After some time has passed, he will recreated the protective sphere, and you'll need to follow the same process again.

Use Gravity to Halve his HP

The Lich is the only Boss in the game who is vulnerable to Gravity. After using Holy to expose him to other attacks, cast Gravity to cut his HP in half with a single hit. From then on, you can continue using Holy for the remainder of the fight.

Gravity will only have an effect once, so if you accidentally use it before leading with Holy, it will become ineffective for the remainder of the fight. Be sure to time your casting of Gravity carefully.

Lich Attack Phases

Lich Abilities and Attack Patterns

The Lich will not do anything until its protective sphere has been destroyed. After the sphere is gone, it will begin using Spells with a wide range of damage, then after a set amount of time, return to an invincible protected state.
