Strategy[edit | edit source]
The Lich is a mid-ranged wizard known for turning around teamfights with his charm while being relatively tanky yet slow.
First off, you need to make the choice between power damage and attack damage. Attack damage is better because it allows you to be more of a threat at all times instead of just when your ult is up, which has a pretty long cooldown. Besides, Lich already has high base power damage with minor scaling from your Skully/Q. It is also much better to have your damage spread nicely between auto attacks, Skully attacks and skills. If you're worried about burst, don't be: a relatively close distance W into E + Q is a lot of burst as well. Also, Lich is the best duelist:
- Long range CC, which means that you're the one who decides the fight.
- Insane base damage from skills.
- Teleport and speed boost.
- Skeleton does big damage and he does it while you're kiting.
For backpacks, Bella Noche's Knapsack, Champion's Backpack, and Techno-Tank are the obvious choices. Since you don't scale extra with attack speed, breach or crit you don't need any of those and should be looking for a defensive second trinket priority (first is damage). With Bella Noche's Knapsack you can have flat Attack Damage, extra move speed, and a great defensive item in Robo Suit. Techno-Tank gives the same thing but with extra health in exchange for some Attack Damage. On the other hand, Champion's Backpack allows you to build Lich as a glass cannon with lots of damage in exchange for the superior defense and utility of the previous two backpacks.
- If Jungling with the Lich, make sure that Skully/Q takes the kill for a permanent +1 to Power damage. This will aid greatly in late game enabling you to deal massive spell damage and farm faster.
