Warframe Kuva Lich Guide

The Kuva Lich is a new enemy in Warframe. Introduced with Update 26, The Old Blood, the Kuva Lich is an enemy that hunts you down and invades the system. They are difficult to kill, you are the only Tenno who can kill your own Kuva Lich with the help of Parazon weapons and Requiem mods.

Warframe Kuva Lich

To get your own Kuva Lich, you must kill a Kuva Larvling. They can be found in any 20+ level Grineer mission. After killing the Larvling and getting information about your Kuva Lich, you can just proceed with the game normally.

To fight your Kuva Lich, you must draw them out. You do this by doing missions in Nodes that the Lich has influence over, and by destroying their Thralls. Killing the Thralls using the Parazon will give you clues on the correct order of Requiem mods that you need to kill your Lich.

Your Lich will also have specific resistances, and immunities. You will know a Lich is after you when an icon appears in your Navigation and Menu screens. The icon will appear beside the Nightwave button and will allow you to check details about your Lich, including Lich Level, Requiem Mod Attempts, and more.

To kill the Kuva Lich, you need Requiem Mods. You can get them by killing the Thralls. Start the mission where the Lich has influence using Nodes.

Now as you kill Thralls they drop a Requiem Murmur. Keep going through the missions until you get the Mods which will prove fatal to your Lich.

As the Requiem Murmurs build up, they will reveal one of the Requiem Mods that you need to kill your Lich. You will need to figure out the order, so you can either wait until you know all three, or you can do some trial and error when your Kuva Lich arrives in your missions.

Failed attempts to kill the Lich will result in the Lich killing you and leveling up from it. Another aspect to consider is that as the Lich grows more powerful, it will become harder and harder to kill.  When you finally find the right combination of Mods, you will have two choices. You can kill the Kuva Lich, or decide to Convert it.

Killing it will get you a Kuva Weapon while Converting it will turn it to your side, and it can appear in fights beside you. This choice will be made after you work through the three portions of the Kuva Lich’s health bar, delivery a blow with the Parazon each time.

Your Kuva Lich also carries weapons which can be looted when you kill them. The weapons have custom stats and variants, depending on your specific Lich. The lich itself depends on the Warframe players used when they killed the Larvling. Below are all the weapons you can acquire by killing your Kuva Lich.
