The Witch is the Magic hero class of the Fortress faction in Heroes of Might and Magic III. Its Might counterpart is the Beastmaster.

Witches are adept at the use of magic powered by rare ingredients gathered from swamplands. Learning this knowledge takes a focus that allows for little advancement of military knowledge.OffBck

When leveling up below tenth level, Witches are most likely to gain spellpower and knowledge (40% each), and less likely to gain defense (15%) or attack (5%). After tenth level, attack and defense is at 20% each, and knowledge and spellpower at 30% each.
