Witch/Warlock Class Guide

Guides |

The Witch/Warlock is a ranged caster whose primary role is to deal damage. They use their Staff and Talisman to cast black magic and send forth dark energy to bring down enemies.


When facing mobs, Taint (charge level 2) an enemy and then cast Murder of Crows before using Epidemic to spread the curse to others and increase the radius of Murder of Crows. If you need to buy some time, you can slow enemies with Aging and render them helpless with Bewitch (PvE only). You can protect yourself from damage and CC (crowd control) with Dark Ritual, which also restores your Magic.

With full magic again, you’re able to use Transform to switch to the Extermination Stance and unleash a new torrent of curses and plagues. Ring of Fire (PvE only) will bring the pain, and you now have access to Killer Crows, as well as Explosion of Darkness and Extermination, both of which will switch your stance. If someone is still standing, then summon a Racket of Crows to damage and instil fear in them.

Bosses have a slightly different method. Start again with Taint (charge level 2) and Murder of Crows before immediately using Transform to switch to the Extermination Stance. Cast Living Helper to increase Taint damage and switch back to Curse Stance. Reapply Taint and go back to Extermination Stance for a quick Explosion of Darkness. It’ll deplete the last of your energy but you can use Dark Ritual to recover your missing energy and repeat!

The Witch and Warlock have many tricks up their sleeves—so much so that they need not even worry about death! Once every six minutes, the aptly-named Ninth Life will save you from a painful death, make you invulnerable for 10 seconds, and restore all of your health.



The damage-dealing magical pair would do best to build stats like Main Damage, Critical Damage, and Critical Chance.
