The Lich is a difficult Hardmode boss, that can be summoned at night after crafting a Soul Forge and obtaining Hallowed Bars, Souls of Night and Pumpkins.

While The Lich is alive, the vanilla track Boss 3 will play.

Spawn[edit | edit source]

The Lich does not spawn on its own, and requires the player to summon it with a Grim Harvest Sigil at night.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

The Lich flies after nearby players, unleashing dark magical attacks, and ramming into the player for massive damage.

Attacks[edit | edit source]

  • Rapidly fires flaming eye beams that set the hit player on fire that increase in frequency as health drops.
  • Periodically chooses between three different attacks.
    • Rains down enormous balls of flame that deal damage to players and set them on fire.
    • Summons a spinning ring of flaming pumpkins that fire at the nearest player.
    • Teleports around the player, firing a spread of shadowy pumpkins at them.

Expert Mode[edit | edit source]

  • Upon reaching 40% health, the Lich's mask and hood will be torn off and it pulls out a scythe.
