A witch is a hostile mob that attacks the hero by throwing potions that create clouds of damaging gas.



A witch resembles its default counterpart in the base game, with the exception that they are in a hunched position when approaching heroes, and its hat points straight up, unlike its Java or Bedrock counterpart. It has a large wart on its nose.


Witches concoct and throw foul brews to attack heroes and pets. On impact they explode, creating noxious Poison Cloud effect. The potion attack has a small circular radius, and disappears after a short time, all the while causing constant damage to anyone inside its radius. These brews resemble the shadow brew potion. Witches attack from a short distance away and retreat back once they have done so. The hero can also shoot the potions mid-air to make them explode sooner, but it still can damage the hero and pets.

When injured, they can heal themselves by drinking a health potion, requiring a cooldown before drinking another one.[verify]
