Don't worry about clearing the room unless XP is desired - as starting the fight will kill all of the humanoid mobs. The Risen Guards should be killed, though, as they will survive the initial blast.

Chillheart starts the fight by casting Ice Wave:

A deadly wave of ice begins to sweep the room!

The ice spreads from the east end of the room, bringing instant death for players who touch it. The wall moves at a pace that gives players roughly two minutes to kill the lich and move the encounter to phase two. Ice does appear on the stairs and the area under the stairs, so escape is not an option. The stair-side ice does not hit as hard as the main ice wall, so if time is about to run out, move the party into the western ice on or under the stairs.

The instant the lich dies, the ice wall fades and her soul moves to her phylactery:

Instructor Chillheart's soul escapes to her phylactery. Destroy it!

Several untargetable books appear in the room, moving about randomly. The fire books move in fixed looping paths, so look for a path and stay out of it. The arcane books move about randomly and also follow players—move out of explosion before it reaches the ground. The shadow books are stationary, but attack all targets in the room with shadow bolts.

Quickly burn down the phylactery—it has no attacks of its own—to complete the encounter before the books wear out the healer. There is no need for a tank in the second phase, so he or she should shift to DPS mode to help kill the phylactery.
