Notes[edit]

  • Grants the Ace Racer.png Approval of the Mad King effect upon being killed.
  • Dodging or blocking Grasping Hands is recommended to prevent a skeleton from spawning.
  • Area of effect boon removal skills are highly recommended when fighting the Lich as its minions frequently give nearby allies retaliation. If left unchecked, this boon will rapidly damage and kill any players using area of effect attacks.
  • Strong area damage can be used to kill skeletons before they apply retaliation.
  • Killing this creature awards the Death to the Undying achievement.
  • It only spawns when a certain Bloody Prince Door in the southeastern section of the Labyrinth is opened (see Maps).
  • It's on a 26 minute respawn timer.
