Kuva Lich Improvements 1.1

The Kuva Lich System was something we were excited to bring to players last year. The birth of the first Kuva Lich arrived just over three months ago along with several additions, changes and fixes. However, we recognize that it was not without problems and we’ve been hard at work to address the issues that you’ve shared with us.

With this update you’ll find improvements that allow you to decide upfront if you want to pursue a Kuva Lich and its weapon, along with the removal of back-breaking cinematics while fighting them. We look forward to your continued feedback, Tenno! Also available in this update are new Kuva Weapons for you to earn along with new Augment Mods -- including two Augments for Baruuk!


Fight or flight, Tenno? A downed Kuva Larvling will now display a preview of the weapon its birthed Kuva Lich will possess. If you decide to show mercy and spare the Larvling, you’ll be rewarded with 100 Kuva upon finishing your mission.


A failed Parazon Requiem attempt will no longer result in forced death. An incorrect guess will instead send your Lich on its way — but not without swearing vengeance first.

These are just a few of the changes we've made, including Valence Fusion (previously known as Valence Transfer) so make sure to visit the Official Forums for full details. We look forward to your feedback, Tenno!


Along with these changes, Liches have equipped themselves with advanced firepower. Vanquish your Lich to add these trophies to your Arsenal.

This powerful Grineer burst rifle has been retrofitted to add semi-automatic and automatic fire modes.

A highly-optimized Nukor that allows for the weapon’s microwave field to hit up to four additional targets.


From the darkest forest, a striking new huntress takes aim — Ivara Skathi. This deluxe collection for Ivara includes her signature Thiazi Syandana and Dali Ballistica Skin.
