A little background info first: WAR really only has 12 different classes, but the opposing faction mirrors those 12 classes for a total of 24. In this article, I intend to build a D&D4e character that could feasibly stand in for the Witch Hunter's mirror class: the dark elves' Witch Elf.
From the Witch Elf description page:
A Witch Elf can be an unstoppable force of death and destruction under the proper circumstances. By picking their targets carefully, the Witch Elf can win a fight in a short amount of time. A Witch Elf prefers to rapidly close with lightly armored targets, where their wicked poisons can find exposed flesh. Using a combination of rapid attacks, the Witch Elf works herself up into a Frenzy to execute powerful attacks that will stop most opponents dead in their tracks. When facing a heavily armored foe, the Witch Elf relies on her agility to survive long enough to pick apart her opponent's defenses and opening him up to a savage death blow.
- Lightly armored and agile, capable of closing long distances rapidly
- Wields long sacrificial daggers coated in deadly poisons
- Armor is adorned with razor sharp hooks, and wickedly barbed metal plates
- lightly armored
- long, deadly daggers
- speed and agility
- strong bursts of damage
- poison attacks
Thanks to a little help from Dragon Magazine issue 373, I think my Witch Elf turned out pretty well. Read on for all the bloody, eviscerated details.
