The Lich is an advanced class in Heroes of Might and Magic IV, based on Chaos magic and Death Magic. Liches can temporarily age enemies by attacking them in melee. Aged enemies have their attack reduced by 25%, their defense reduced by 20%, and their speed and movement reduced by 50%.


The Lich is most likely to learn Death Magic and Chaos magic but cannot learn Life Magic at all. All other skills can be learned when leveling up, but have less chance of appearing for selection.


Aging enemies is a great way of weakening powerful creatures, but the downside is that the Lich needs to fight in close combat - not a good position for a hero with two spell skills. To make the most of this bonus, have another creature attack the enemy creature first, to draw retaliation away from the Lich.
