The Everfall

Bitterblack Isle (Pre-Daimon)

Bitterblack Isle (Post-Daimon)


  • Weak against all forms of Holy.
  • Can be Silenced, rendering them practically harmless, though their summons still act independently.
  • Almost all spells they cast will mark the area of effect on the ground before it hits. Watch the ground carefully to avoid most of the damage.
  • If enough damage is done to the flying Wight it may be knocked down onto the floor, making it more vulnerable to all attacks.

  • Unlike the Wight the Lich has a more "Fleshier" appearance, resembling more of an Undead rather than a Skeleton.
  • The Lich never seems to speak any incantation, similar to the player when casting spells, unlike its weaker counterpart the Wight, who mumbles its incantations.
  • The Lich's attire bears a very heavy resemblance to a Roman Catholic bishop or cardinal, most notably in the Lich's mitre and heavily decorated robes with golden embroidery, perhaps representing the vast knowledge and power the Lich possesses.
  • The Dark Bishop is a stronger version of the Lich found only on Bitterblack Isle.
