The Dragon Liche is an optional boss that does not impact the main story line. He is encountered shortly after Chang'an, at the Shrine of Zhong Kui, but only on Epic and Legendary difficulties. He is considered to be the most powerful Undead creature in the game.
The Dragon Liche has a variety of attacks, most of them dealing in poison. His most common attack is a normal bite, which actually can miss quite often and does not do a lot of damage. His most lethal attack is his "Stomach Dump" where he basically unloads the contents of his stomach. Another attack is the "Wing Flap" which does massive physical damage and disrupts skills for a few seconds. Another notable ability is that he can control pets.
- Skill Disruption
- Damage from Undead
This boss is undead, so any reduction to damage from undead will surely help. His stomach dump will surely kill anyone in a matter of seconds, but thankfully the attack can take up to 6-7 seconds to finish the animation, so you have loads of time to get out of the way. His Wing Flap is much more dangerous, because it covers a huge area. However, it is another very slow attack, and only fires forward. So dodging this will not be hard. Remember to disband any pets, and to not summon the Outsider when you fight this guy!
Another excellent way of taking down Dragon Liche is if you have the Spirit Mastery as one of your masteries, especially if you have it with a melee mastery like Warfare Mastery. Spirit Mastery has the Spirit Ward spell and its synergy Spirit Bane, the single most amazing spells against undead. Just one point alone in Spirit Ward gives +15% less damage from undead, up to a maximum of +39% less, and its synergy Spirit Bane gives +33% extra damage to undead with just one point in it, up to a maximum of +55% when maxed. If you plan to fight Dragon Liche, redistributing your skill points and putting even just one point in each makes a phenomenal difference when fighting this boss, especially for weaker characters who are struggling to survive
