Liches are one of the playable races in Art of Conquest.

Lich[edit | edit source]

Lich is the best race in the game. All their units fill essential roles that allow them to overwhelm their enemies and protect their HQ. If you enjoy thwarting your foes and having an army that you rarely need to build, due to Mummies being able to bring in free troops, then this is the race for you.

Troops[edit | edit source]

Melee units[edit | edit source]

Lich's melee units consist of Marauders, Ravagers, and Stalkers. Undead units that specialize on overwhelming the enemy by sheer weight of bodies. Besides that, they are the cheapest unit to create, not to mention the ability of Lich armies to raise them from dead unit's corpses. This together allows Lich to have a front line of cannon fodder that will not present a great loss were they destroyed.

Range units[edit | edit source]

Lich's range units consist of Acolytes, Occultists, and Warlocks. They have very high damage output but have very short ranged compared to other ranged units such as the archer, unless on the garrison wall, where they have (as any unit on the wall) unlimited range. Their high damage and the fact that they are easy to replace (they share most of the lich's melee units properties on the subject) means they are a good choice to attack walls, specially if their Undead trait is taken into consideration (Undead units excel at plundering resources when attacking city walls).

Advanced units[edit | edit source]

Lich'core strength units consist of Sandstingers ,BloodClaws , and Dunelords .They are the frontline unit of the Lich race, many will argue they are the best frontline unit out of all the races due to the fact that they are magical creatures and thus can be healed by Vega’s sun god ability while having a passive 50% magic damage reduction which means they won’t be easily broken by hero abilities which is how most frontlines are broken.But careful for enemy range unit of race dwarf,Human and Rakan

Specialty units[edit | edit source]

Lich's specialty units consist of Mummies, Conjurers, and Necrolytes. They are another ranged unit of the Lich race but they fill the support role like priests for humans. Where these units will animate corpses into skeleton warriors during battle. As of a recent patch they only animate skeleton corpses, so you will need to bring your own Marauders to be animated or only use them against other lich players who use skeletons, which never happens. The only use for mummies now are to be used against undead themed quests where you can use them to animate the NPC units and if they survive the battle they will join your army for free. This can be very useful as you can raise entire Marauder and acolyte armies with mummies after doing enough quests.

Support units[edit | edit source]

Spiders are the corner stone of the Lich army, without spiders being as powerful/borderline overpowered as they are the Lich race would not be what it is. In the current meta the Lich army is comprised of two units Scorpions and Spiders, while the Scorpions are used to tank damage and delay the enemy from getting to the spider, the spider is responsible for everything else. The spider is capable of doing almost everything. Spiders have incredibly long range where they can almost hit anywhere on the battlefield while standing on the backline, they spawn their own meatshields in the form of spider lings and have Splash attacks that apply a damage over time effect. Combined this unit has the largest kit out of any unit in the game where the only units with more abilities or traits are the “super” units which you can only have one of.They consist of spider, venomweaver and broodmother!

Sphinx[edit | edit source]

This is the Lich Super Unit it has a Fear aura just like the boss you can fight. This Aura will be helpful when breaking human castles as it will quickly break the frontline and allow you to completely crush the battle quickly.

Research[edit | edit source]

Focus on scorpion and spider research unlock Silver Skeletons and that is all you need to do. You can also go for silver mummies to get free units from quests and overworld map battles. The first four researches for every unit are very good and are pretty cheap it would not hurt to get all of them. Once you have that much I would then suggest you focus on what you will be using for your main army.

Army Formations[edit | edit source]

Seven spiders in the backline with 4-5 scorpions in the frontline, maybe have one legion of skeletons to sacrifice with Gazul to summon a powerful titan, besides that you can use this setup for literally everything.
