Costs and excessive time to build skeletons.
An honor store only benefits humans and dwarves.
The events benefit the dwarves and humans.
The void benefits the dwarves, humans and Rankan.
Heroes benefit humans, dwarves and Rankan.
In my opinion, we are the most disadvantaged race in the game.
Maybe we are the strongest race in the game with respect to defense, but our acolytes die and we lose many resources that are difficult to recover afterwards.
1. Lich is pretty good at bronze running, and you can do a decent job if you run a gold scorp frontline in siege.
you can not really farm dwarves for honor, but there are rarely any dwarf tower on the map anyways so it does not make that much of a difference.
2. There are SOME events that are better for dwarves and humans.
3.You can swap to other races for the void without a lot of effort.
4. Lich needs to get rose and cleo(2) Rakan needs to get yip and denji(2) Dwarf needs to get Jacques and Gafgar (2) and human needs elena (1)
IF you only count the heros that give stat buffs to troops. Technically all other races do also need to get cleo since she is almost must have in pvp and siege.
(everyone needs to get elena so she does not really change the numbers).
5.The acolytes of you that die are also the ones that you got for FREE before. So there are NOT really any resources that are hard to recover. Aswell as that a good lich defense does not even let the attacker get to the wall to kill those.
And you should not forget that you got the strongest pvp as lich.
