Liche Priest (Nehekhara) is a Tomb Kings caster hero unit in Total War: Warhammer II: Rise of the Tomb Kings. The savage desert itself obeys the one who summons the dunes and the dead to fight for him.

Description[edit | edit source]

Liche Priests and Master Necromancers are the undying members of Nehekhara's Mortuary Cult, and they hold the secrets to Unlife. They know the rituals needed to draw forth spirits from the Realm of Souls and bind them once more into corporeal bodies. It is they who rouse the Tomb Kings and their courts from their slumber and awaken their armies for war. Liche Priests and Master Necromancers are also the keepers of Nehekhara's arcane lore. Through ritualistic incantations, they call upon the power of ancient gods to bestow blessings upon the warriors of the Tomb Kings, infusing their ancient bones with magical energy. Similarly, they cast terrible curses upon their foes, summoning vengeful desert spirits to feast on their souls.

This one is versed in the unique Magic Lore of the Tomb Kings, which makes him arguably the best caster available to them. Whether you want buffs to your units, debuffs to the enemy, direct damage or vortex spells, the Liche Priest with the Lore of Nehekhara has got you covered. His lore attribute, The Restless Dead, is a mapwide healing spell, restoring your units´ health and resurrecting them every time another spell is cast. In conjunction with the Realm of Souls´ passive healing, this can make your army remarkably resilient to harm if you continuously keep casting.
