I'd love to see this. May come with something like the vampire appearance changes as it gets worse, only that instead of going pale the character goes rotten or something.
Yes. I’d love for a complex ritual process in order to attain the state of Lichdom, perhaps something like we saw in the Skyrim Undeath Mod but using the lore provided in Oblivion’s The Path of Transcendence.
Necromancer class would be pretty awesome, with some type of Lich-powers skill-line. Would love to see this implemented!
I thought a lich was an undead necromancer? That's how they're depicted here, in TES. So, Necromancer class, three skill-lines as per custom, one of the skill-lines perhaps being something like "Lichdom" or "Undeath", but obviously with a catchy name. Come to think of it, though, what would a lich offer that necromancers don't already have? As noted, a lich is just a necromancer that has achieved undeath; generally, a lich is more powerful, but that just comes from a lifetime of study and experimentation, as well as dark pacts (or covenants or dominions ), but they still have the same powers. I guess you could have a line of draining spells, with one of the optional passives giving you the guise of a lich. Or a lich polymorph in the crown store; I think a lot of people would go just for that.
Hence why I think a necromancer class would be way better than a lich (as you noted, a lich's agenda, and probably a necromancer's, too, run counter to many of the quests in this game). As we both noted, even a necromancer might be difficult to play lore-wise; the main quest deals directly with rooting out necromancers and Daedra-worshippers, though, since the Soulless One is sacrificed to Molag Bal, one could always say that they're taking revenge. Again, if there were to be a necromancer class added, one skill-line would obviously be devoted to raising various undead (much like the Sorceror's skill-line dealing with summoning Daedra), while another would be draining/absorption and, perhaps, fear-inducing spells (the College of Illusion is so under-represented in this game ), and the third perhaps frost-based spells with things like paralysis and immobilisation, since I don't think one of the classes has a skill-line with spells that deal cold damage (please correct me if I'm wrong). Perhaps a lich polymorph added to the Crown Store to co-incide with the release of a necromancer class would be a good idea, too, for those who want to look like the ultimate necromancer.
I also did not mean to argue; I was just stating my opinion, and providing my reasons for choosing the answer I did.
Will we be able to use the Lich skill line to "raise" enemy players in PvP and temporarily be able to control them?
