Meet the Witch

Many arts were abandoned as Aelion’s technological development grew more advanced until reaching the levels we now commonly overlook in our daily lives. There are few who know about this ancient sortilege and even less that comprehend the true power behind it. As archaic as these summoning rituals and chalk-drawn circles may appear, there is no mistaking the horrifying potential Witchcraft can have on a feeble creature’s body and mind. - Asterius’s Encyclopedia

Today, we’re excited to present the Witch, one of Skyforge’s advanced classes and master of the arcane arts! A skilled manipulator, the Witch is capable of easily traversing the battlefield bending all combatants to their will and slowly corrupting those who lack the resolve necessary to withstand a perpetual onslaught.

Skyforge Witch 1


Witches are often found comfortably situated at the very outskirts of a battle, using their broom to maintain the safe distance required to affectively spread their blight. Utilizing the mystical talisman affixed to their weapon and preferred method of transportation they are capable of altering their stance, using previously applied ailments to inflict significant damage.

The Witch possesses two stances – Curse & Extermination. Curse, the witches default variant, provides the necessary build up for the Witches high-damaging abilities as well as inflicting damage over time. Do not underestimate this stance as these skills are far from weak and can be easily spread among the enemy ranks causing complete deterioration of the opposing force. If the witch corrupts but a single opponent, it’s in the best interest of the entire enemy faction to keep their distance to avoid a potential outbreak and inevitable death.

The Witch’s Extermination stance provides them the opportunity to fully exploit the massive power residing in their talisman. However, this stance does requires a sacrifice through the spread of disease – specifically, the application of Taint on the target is mandatory for the Witch to make use of the majority of skills available while in this form. The more Taint affects the target’s feeble frame, the higher the damage output these skills can provide.

The Witch provides opportunities to control the battlefield, punishing those who stick too close or using their various curses to single out any who wander too far from the pack. Despite their low health pool and physically weak nature, the Witch has little trouble ensuring a distance remains between them and those seeking to end their vile sorcery.

Mobility, Damage-over-time abilities, and effective crowd control make the Witch a go-to class for those seeking complete mastery over any conflict they engage in. Mastery of this class is a difficult road, but those who reach it can easily sway the outcome of all battles in their favor!
