Kuva Liches steal some of your resources when you complete a mission in their territory. It has been stated that killing your Kuva Lich is the only way to recover this stolen loot.

Additionally, I find it implied, if not outright stated, that you can only have 1 Kuva Lich at a time.

Both of these points have significant impacts on the subject of killing your Kuva Lich vs converting it. Namely: if you choose to convert your Kuva Lich instead of killing it, does this count as "completing" the lich? Does it let you start another one? Does it return your resources?


Yes, converting a Lich counts as completing it, as such you will be able to get a new lich, and you will receive all stolen goods back.

If your lich has an ephemera, you will get it regardless of your choice, but you will only get its weapon if you kill it.

    So there's really no difference between converting/killing, besides the difference in the outcome ally/kuvaweapon, correct? – senpai Nov 4 '19 at 10:57

    @senpai that is correct, yes. Killing them grants the weapon they're using, but converting them will turn them into an "ally". – Hugo Zink Nov 4 '19 at 12:05

    Worth noting, if they have an ephemera, you WILL get the ephemera with either option. – Suspended User Dec 1 '19 at 18:58
