Then, get the thief to drink some oil of speed and enter the room. You should have enough time to unlock the chest to get the daystar sword. (Meanwhile, Lich will be casting protection spells, followed by Time Stop, Meteor Swarm, etc.).

Thief, get out of the room quick! Mage identifies the sword and fighter equips it. If the Lich does come out, the traps will hurt it a bit and you can use Daystar's ability "Sunray", which will further hurt the Lich. Also use the Ring of Ram on the Lich, and you should finish him off.

The only problem is if the Lich had cast Mislead, which means the actual Lich is still in the room. But in that case, you have all the time in the world to return later to kill him off.

Hope this helps!



I just tried this right off the bat and it worked like a charm.
He followed me out and I ran back in, accidently. When I went
back out and killed him, I got 22,000 xp. I rested went back
in to clean out the casket, and another Lich was there. Repeated
the same and got another 22,000 xp, wands and another rod..Nice bug.

I finally beat him last night but it was a tough fight! Slight spoiler below

Loaded Anomen and Viconia up with multiple Holy Strikes, Jahiera with Summon Insects, Miscast, Insect Swarm, Jan with Breach and Summon monsters. My sorcerer had 6 Spell Thrusts and 5 Greater Malisons in his book. Cast Haste, Prot. from Evil 10', Prot. from Fire, Death Ward.

Entered room and sent Jan to get the sword. Jahiera, Jan and my sorcerer went to work first. Jan and my sorcerer then summoned a bunch of crap for the lich to waste his spells on. Left the room for a few...

Returned for round 2: breach, spell thrust, greater malison, doom, miscast. I noticed that NO weapons worked on him. +2 arrows, Azuredge, Flail of Ages, Lilacor, Mace of Disruption. I'm guessing he had a Prot. from Magical Weapons... but couldnt figure out why it wasnt dispelled.

Summoned some more monsters, including Fire Elementals, and left the room again. Took me about 3 more rounds of this to win. I noticed that he saved against the Daystar sword's sunray and took NO DAMAGE!

Very tough battle...


Get this:

Daystar sword - NO DAMAGE! Lich saved and he was "uninjured" after that.

Or cheese it using the 'in and out' technique.

1. In - Run in and grab the DayStar and run out.
2. Out - Wait outside for a while. He didn't attack you when you ran in because he was busy loading up on protection spells. Waiting outside allows those spells to run their duration and make him vunerable gain.
3. In - run back in and wait until he starts casting again - then run out before he finishes - he loses those spells too.
4. Out - wait a moment - save the game etc - and run back in.

Repeat the process.

After about doing this around 5 times he's out of spells (more or less). Now use the daystar Sunray spell and hack the SOB to death...

CHEESY TO THE EXTREME - but it works...

Theres a very easy strategy vs that one:
1 you enter the room and he casts protections.
2 then he starts casting time stop
3 run outside before he finishes the spell and go out of the inn
4 rest and re enter
5 his protections shuld be gone by now and his time stop failed, kick his a$$ and take the trasures.

works anytime

Does anyone ever wonder why the lich doesn't regain all those spells/abilities just like you would, after you've rested?

I mean, if you can take a rest, why not him??

It doesn't seem very realistic in that sense, but I'm definitely not complaining...

No pun intended
