Since D&D 4 came out I have played with the Warlock class. It was not exactly what I wanted in a witch class, but it was close. Close enough that I wanted to play it right away and I did not feel the need to make a Witch class for 4e.
Well now even that option is filled.
In November WotC will release their "Heroes of the Feywild". I am expecting it to be like their "Heroes of the Shadowfell" which despite not talking about it much here I liked.
Included in it will be a new "sub" class, the Witch.
The witch looks like it fills the niche of a warlock that is more like a wizard. Pretty awesome.
They are playing up the fey parts a bit, just like I did with my Faerie Witch from my various books.
So far I really like what I see and I am looking forward to this book.
I'll have to stat up a witch and a warlock side by side to see how they stack up against each other.
Maybe I will produce a 4e Witch and Warlocks book with some options after all. Who knows.
But not till next year.
