    Hehehe. Liches, now they are some of the most funnest parts of the game. Ring of the Ram works wonders against them. Also [snip].

    Easy: summon a single spider. Send him forth. The lich uses time stop, death spell, symbols. Now that the death spell is out of the way, summon a few skeleton warriors. Immune to magic, they can whach 'im all day long.

    Even better if the lich gates in a demon: that too is immune to magic. Just stay away and enjoy of the show.

    A boring, but effective way is to get the Mace of Disruption +2 and smack the lich with it. If you're lucky, the lich will just fall over and die.

    just friggin hack and slash him until he's dead, works for me, pretty much at any level. Or just use the summon trick to waste his spells.

    Yep, just pour some salt on 'em (or is that leeches?).
    Actually, I'm with Thewl on this, just get your tanks to beat the crap out of them (just buff them up first to be safe).

    Whack 'em with a Big Stick +5. :grin:

    Nothing really special, all you really need to do is grab some MR-enhancing items and a nice +# weapon and hope for the best. Buff up your tanks with magic protections, etc., cast Breach enough times to take down combat protections and spell traps and have some dignity about it.

    1. cast monstersummoning I when lich starts to cast timestop, summon your creature as near to the leech as you can and make sure not to stay close to him after that (meteor swarm).

    2. when timestop is over your creatures are killed, now quickly summon a nishruu or hakaeshar and send it to the leech. funny hehe.

    3. when your summon ends cast true sight and 'breach' the lich. ranged combat with +1 ammo does the rest. if breach doesnt work you may have to use 'pierce magic' first.

    I say be cheesy. Use Vhalior's helm to cast a simulacrum, then from the sim use either protection from magic scroll on the lich or protection from undead on your party. Then kill him with impunity at no danger to yourself.

    that 6th level clerical spell holy something does decent damage to them, but you have to dispell spell turnings etc.

    yes virne, nearly. but i recommend nishruu instead of skeleton warriors due to "can't be killed by a lich" vs. "may be killed by a lich".

    anyway, there are multiple tactics to kill stupid liches. if they do some babbling before attacking you (like shangalar) or have to appear in a room you can lay 5+ traps around his to-be position and lich is dead in 1 second.

    send a hastened warior with Vhaliors helm, Daystar and two rings of the ram in.

    1. just before lich in sight use simulacrum from helm.

    2. as soon a lich appears use Sunray from both wariors (copy and real). This may kill him strait off if he fails his save, and either way it disrupts spell casting.

    3. use the rings of the ram.

    4. Now if this doesn't work (and really IF ) wak him to bits.

    Note. with the lich in Crooked Crane I sent my vanilla thief in, stole Daystar, went out, slept, went back in blasted him with Sunray to disrupt spell casting and just hit him a few times before he died. Too easy
