BattleEdit

Lich uses both physical and magical attacks. It employs Fire-elemental attacks and is weak to Ice, one-handed swords and firearms. Though similar to the necromancer, it doesn't use the triangle beam, and instead throws bones to deal physical damage. Lich can poison the party with noxious vapor and phase out, preventing the player from locking-on to them. It can attack with its green flames, which then explode, dealing magical damage.

When fought in Steyliff Grove as a hunt, there are no point-warp spots in the arena.

StrategyEdit

The player can play defensively and watch for parries, which may also trigger link-strikes with nearby allies. The player can hit their blindside as Lichs are fairly slow.

In the Steyliff hunt, the player must fight three of them at once. They tend to stay close together, giving the player an opening to engulf them in Ice magic. Prompto's Piercer Technique will also likely hit multiple targets in this battle, and Lichs are weak to firearms. The party will be poisoned unless they wear accessories that prevent it or eat meals that give Poisonproof or Resilient.

Etymology and symbolismEdit

In fantasy fiction, a lich is a type of undead creature. Often such a creature is the result of a transformation, as a powerful magician or king striving for eternal life uses spells or rituals to bind his intellect to his animated corpse and thereby achieve a form of immortality.

In traditional Japanese folklore beliefs souls that died in a sudden or violent manner, or ones that did not get the proper burial rituals performed upon them, may linger in the physical plane as yūrei, analogous to western legends of ghost. Yūrei are frequently depicted as being accompanied by a pair of floating flames or will o' the wisps that are separate parts of the ghost rather than independent spirits, similar to how flames surround the ghostly Lich and its ilk.
