The Witch is the mage archetype in Path of Exile; she mainly specializes in killing foes with magic, summoning an army of minions, or applying strong curses. The Witch can ascend and choose one of three paths.
- The Elementalist, a sorceress that excels at casting strong offensive spells;
- The Necromancer, which raises the dead — this is more of a summoner archetype;
- The Occultist, which is all about using Energy Shield as its main defensive resource instead of life.
She also specializes in Cold and Chaos magic, along with having very nice buffs to Curses.
