Class Overview


The witch is a master of Elemental Magic, binding the forces of earth, fire, wind and water to her will. She is capable of great destruction, but that is not the limit of her power. Witches can also act as beacons of healing and support on the battlefield, using AoE heals, and protection spells to bolster the strength and defense of allies.

The transition between destruction and healing can make Witches a formidable foe, however, they do have long cast times and animations, making it necessary that they stay vigilant on the battlefield, and take precautions to avoid danger. Should a witch be cornered, their skills will be put to the ultimate test of life or death.

Below, you will find several Witch skills that will assist you during your travels.

Lore


A society of knowledge, the sages of Labreve,

an organization of delightful, flourishing Witches.

A gifted visionary named Deneve

nurtured the group to push boundaries.

Let their imagination bloom and soar,

inquiring, engaging and experimenting.

Their efforts bore fruit, the fruit of enterprise.

A magical advancement named Aad’s Pharos.

Exciting news, Teleport is here! But

onward she went, Deneve never stopped.

Under no circumstance would she cease to inquire.

Toward different dimensions, joyfully she hopped.

There she made an astounding discovery,

Marvelous, but not quite a magical encounter.

Uncanny footprints from multi-dimensional history.

She must pursue, such is her desire.
