Witches might be best described as the cleric class that is most similar to mages. They cannot wear as heavy armor as Priests or Healers, but have better defensive spells, and can Daze, Stun, etc., enemy creatures before they ever attack, and can then kill them with their Assault prayer. Similar to mages and their staves, Witches can imbue their prayers in their brooms, giving them a significant advantage in that regard. In general, female characters make better Witches but there are male Warlocks out there as well that are quite capable. Witches are also handy with weapons, though not as much as priests.

Witches must have at least 18 Empathy and 17 Charisma.
