The power lich is the upgrade to the lich, the fifth-tier creature of the Necropolis faction in Heroes of Might and Magic III. It can be recruited from the upgraded mausoleum.

Liches attack at range with a death cloud, which always causes damage in the target hex and also attacks all non-undead creatures in adjacent hexes. At close range they defend themselves less efficiently with blows from their scepters.OffBck

With twice as many shots, more hit points, and slightly higher maximum damage and speed, this is a useful upgrade. While there are other upgrades that are more important, like the vampire lord, the power lich is also a decent improvement.


  • Moander is a specialist in power liches, and gives them +1 to Attack and Defense per hero level after fifth level. These creatures also get +1 to Speed.
