Lich Towers are generated structures in the Twilight Forest dimension. They appear in a few different biomes varying in size and form, though the general layout remains the same. At the top of the main tower lies the boss mob; the Twilight Lich. Optional side-towers branch off it.


When exploring the Lich Tower, bring Iron armor and weapons at the minimum. Things that reduce or nullify fall damage such as Feather Falling enchantments, Cloud Boots and Golden feathers are recommended. Items like the Electric Staff, Ender Pearls and Hookshoot items can bypass a lot of tedious stair climbing. It is also advised that light sources and a ranged weapon are brought along.

Inside the Lich Tower, Skeletons and Death Tomes spawn in abundance, sometimes from monster spawners. Zombies, Creepers and Endermen, also inhabit the tower, along with Swarm and Hedge Spiders from spawners.


Twilight Forest - Lich Tower - Main Stairs

Twilight Forest - Lich Tower - Small Stairs

Inside of a side-tower's stair room.

There is no designated entrance, so the best way to start is to break into the walls at surface level. A very tall room filled with Paintings and two big staircases tower all the way up to the Twilight Lich’s quarters. Along the way are spawners on bridges connecting the staircases spawning Skeletons or Swarm Spiders. Beware of gaps in the staircases. A player could use an Electric Staff to fly up in seconds to reach the Lich and beat the Lich Tower in a few minutes.

More thorough explorers can follow the side paths found in the main room, finding dead ends, monster spawners or smaller staircase rooms leading to chests or even smaller staircases. Spawners should be broken on sight, as the tight areas can easily become crowded.


Skeletons, Death Tomes, Cobwebs and Bookshelves, make Lich Towers a great source of Bones, Arrows, Paper, String and Books. Common chest contents include many kinds of Potions and Brewing reagents along with Paper, Books, Ender Pearls and low end Vanilla gear, sometimes enchanted.


Twilight Forest - Lich Tower - Boss Room

The Lich's chamber at the top of its tower.

The boss of the Lich Tower is the Twilight Lich, a Skeleton surrounded with gold shields wearing a purple robe, gold crown and a Scepter of Twilight. The player must break the shields by attacking or reflecting its ranged moves, then proceed to kill the Lich with a weapon of choice. The Lich teleports, strikes with explosive shots and summons Lich Minions. It drops one of three possible Scepters, Ender Pearls, powerful Gold Armor and Lich Trophy upon death.
