Note: Wait! Stop! Before you copy this actor's definition into your mod, remember the following things:
  1. You do not need to copy that actor, since it is already defined.
  2. In fact, it's not just useless, it's actually harmful as it can cause problems.
  3. If you want to modify it, or use a modified version, using inheritance is the way to go.
  4. The actor definitions here are put on the wiki for reference purpose only. Learn from them, don't copy them.
  5. There is only one exception: if what you want is changing Ammo capacity, you need to create a new type from Ammo.
Iron lich
Actor type Monster Game MiniHereticLogoIcon.png (Heretic)
DoomEd Number 6 Class Name IronLich
Spawn ID 20 Identifier T_IRONLICH

Classes: IronLich

An iron lich looks nothing like the traditional fantasy lich: they are gigantic helmeted iron skulls, animated by magic and blasting their targets with elemental attacks. Their native action A_LichAttack will result either in a powerful bite if the target is close enough, or in a spell otherwise: either a whirlwind, a ice ball that explodes into tiny shards, or a column of fireballs.

In Heretic.wad, the sprites are actually named HEAD* and are renamed at load-time by ZDoom.
