So I stopped playing Pathfinder for a while as we started playing less mechanically heavy systems. I feel a bit out of the loop but I want to build a Witch for a game coming soon where we will be exploring The Emerald Spire. Any recommendations? Is there any new hotness? Is there another class that could do better? I think the last book I read was Advanced Class Guide although to be honest I did not get far in it. So yeah my thoughts are playing some sort of witch nothing particular in mind about it other than shutting people down like they do.
The witch is one of the classes which has changed very little over time. There's new archetypes - Invoker may be useful mechanically, Wyrm Witch has a fascinating flavour - and a few new spells, but nothing game-changing. If you want to play a witch who debuffs there's nothing new that you really need to know.
