Loop Hero bosses walkthrough - how to defeat Lich

A new game from the Russian studio Four Quarters has become available on Steam - Loop Hero . The project instantly earned the title of a hit. In this article, we will tell you about all the bosses of the game and the optimal tactics for defeating them.


The game's unusual visuals are combined with interesting roguelike mechanics. Projects in this genre have a number of distinctive features - generated levels, a constant increase in difficulty and the need to start from the very beginning after the death of the character. Often, at the end of a level, a boss is waiting for the player, who cannot be defeated on the first try.


A distinctive feature of Loop Hero is the card-based object spawn system. In the story, the Lich kidnapped the main character and somehow erased all the space around him. Initially, a looped path and a camp are available to you, and there is only darkness around. As you progress through you will collect a deck of cards that can be used so that the hero "remembered" where what object - here was a forest, and over there - mountains.


After activating the map of the territory, the darkness dissipates and the geography of travel expands. Each new area has its own characteristics that affect both the world and the character. In addition, some will have new enemies on them, which also makes the daily adventure more varied.


There are two bars at the top of the screen on the left, one of which shows how much is left until the end of the day, and the second shows how much time until the boss appears. Their filling speed is different. The boss strip fills up only after playing a terrain card.

The first boss you will encounter is the Lich. This can be a tough battle if you don't have a good deck or the right items for your hero.

It should be borne in mind that the earlier you fight the Lich, the easier it will be. You can try to make the Lich spawn faster by killing as many mobs as possible before completing each cycle. The more kills, the more cards, and the faster the boss counter in the upper left corner of the screen fills up. Use cards like Spider Cocoon in conjunction with Chrono Crystals to spawn more monsters that are easy to defeat. You can read more about all the cards for summoning opponents in our other material.


To defeat the Lich in Loop Hero, you can use a simple deck consisting of the following cards:


  • Battleground;
  • Bloody Grove;
  • Grove;
  • Meadow;
  • Mountain;
  • Oblivion;
  • Rock;
  • Spider Cocoon;
  • Coffers;
  • Village.

Save your Oblivion cards for the Lich to spawn and use them on as many Lich palaces as possible when the boss appears. Palaces help the Lich inflict more damage on you, which makes him harder to deal with. You can also place items around your camp to reduce the number of palaces spawning, since this is where the Lich spawns.

When it comes to gear, the most important stat to focus on is dodge. The lich deals a lot of damage, so dodging multiple hits during combat can be crucial. Aim for over 40% evasion for a comfortable victory, but don't neglect your damage rate.

Another characteristic you can try is vampirism. This ability provides a life drain every time you hit an enemy. Due to the considerable influence of randomness, there are many viable combinations of skills, items, and cards. It is almost impossible to predict in advance what you will get. Therefore, you may well open some of your own scheme for defeating the boss. Higher rarity items may not always be the best choice. Choose items that give you the stats you want and ignore rarities.

Finally, consider unlocking all possible upgrades for your camp. The Herbalist's Hut is a game changer and can really turn the tide if you're having trouble defeating the Lich.

The Herbalist's Hut is one of the first buildings that players can build in their camp, but it can take quite a lot of cycles to collect all the necessary resources. When the herbalist's hut is finally built, players will begin expeditions with two health potions and will be rewarded with two more potions at the end of each cycle.

It should be borne in mind that only a certain amount can be stored in the "stock" of potions, and they are used automatically. The player cannot independently use them as needed, and all potions earned during the passage of the cycle in excess of the set amount will be lost.
