P.B Publishing Presents:

The Hex Witch

As seen on Loot the Room's: Best of DM's Guild December 2016
03.06.2017 - V4.0 updated to address editing and clarity issue with Wyld Witch features. Also a printer friendly verison added to the file list.
 
12.30.2016 - V3.0 updated to address some valid points provided in the review/discussion threads.
 
He flies through the air in agile speed, standing atop two orc skulls, their eye sockets glowing green with the raw mystical energies imbued into them by the witch himself. He artfully turns side-on between trees before spinning to fly in reverse. The witch recites his hex incantation, and then the mystical energies of the hex make their impact on the pursuer. The Aarakocra becomes dizzy and disorientated, before crashing hard into the hard and thick mass of a tree trunk.
A Player Class for Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition

There are three roles that the hex witch can fill,

  1. The Seer - the Augury Witch
  2. The Combat Spellcaster - the Fey Witch
  3. The Utility/Healer - the Wyld Witch

Each has its benefits and will largely influence the party.

This is an exciting class with some nice features, however, even in its 4th incarnation, it remains unbalanced. I am a veteran 5e DM and player, having logged over 2000 hours at the game in public play alone, and while the inspiration behind this build is fantastic, it's just not very practical in its current form. Let me give you some more concrete thoughts:

The Hex Witch here is a Sorcerer, essentially, with special Incantations and a Wizard/Cleric hybrid sort of spell list. Okay, that's already quite strong all by itself, so much so that you might want to scale back the cantrips to wizard level, and just have 3 scaling to 5.

The healing and transformation of Hex Points is a bonus action and does a fair bit of healing. Paladins heal as an action at level 2, up to 10 points. Your witch heals as a bonus action up to 6. Fighters might be a better comparison. Second Wind is 1d10+level as a bonus action. At Level 5, a fighter heals 6-15, your witch heals 6-13. Given the power of a full caster,...See more

Hi. Im confused on how should work on the wyld witch with the potions. it says i should be able to craft a potion up to my level but it doesn't say witch levels are the potions. and whats the limitations on the Nature's gift? 3x witch lvl per long rest?

Hi Miguel,

Thanks for the feedback! You are correct, in that it is too ambiguous.

1. Potions: the levels were accidentally left off the final copy, we will update shortly.

2. Nature's gift: works like the clerics "channel divinity", by which it can be used once between short or long rests... 3xwitch level means the amount of HP you can restore... this also needs to be better clarified and will be updated.

Thank you again for the invaluable feedback.

Regards

Phil.

In my opinion, this is the best take of a witch class for 5e. You did a really great job catching the feel of it and making it fairly unique, however there are some areas that are a bit unbalanced, both overpowered and underpowered, in my opinion. First, I would decrease the amount of cantrips they know by one to be on par with the other classes. Regarding the invocations, I would wither make the voodoo doll's hex point cost be increased by 1, or making it where it can be destroyed by spells like fireball or other spell that effect an area or make it where they can't cast spells that have a somatic and component part because it would be difficult to cast a spell while dealing with the doll, using an arcane focus or component pouch and making a symbol. In turn, I would allow the player to use more hex points to allow the doll to do more damage. Also with living object, I would give the small, medium, and large objects a little more strength, but not much more. I would also add another wiccan teleportation at level...See more

Hi Nathan,

V3.0 has been uploaded with your feedback in mind.
Note: we took on board everything you mentioned barring the following:
1. We didn't drop the cantrip starting amount, as this class was based from the Sorcerer, and reflects the structure of the sorcerer class.
2. We didnt feel that the Wiccan Transportation feature needed to be given at the 10th level.

Other than that, everything you provided was spot on.

Thank you for the feedback and very keen to hear some stories of people's experiences with playing the Hex Witch.

Regards and thanks

Phil B

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
