Spawn Overworld

[view][talk] A Witch is a ranged mob, added in the Pretty Scary Update. Witches are hostile and are found mostly in Swamp Biomes wandering around their houses. When a Witch notices the player they begin to viciously attack them with splash potions. Witches also have the ability to regenerate health. It fires splash potions of weakness, slowness, poison, and harming to weaken the player so it makes it easier to attack the player. Because of this, the player's armour is rendered useless regardless of the armour's material and/or enchantments.


  • The Witch is the second hostile Overworld ranged mob, the first being the skeleton.
  • The Witch is some sort of variation of a villager.
  • Unlike villagers, Witches de-spawn if the player is far enough from them, because they are a hostile mob.
  • Witches have a animation that moves the wart on their nose and the nose altogether.


Since update 1.7.2 witches now spawn like a regular mob.This means you do not have to go to The Nether to get Glowstone Dust. Before this update they could only be found in Witches' huts.
