Ni No Kuni: Cross Worlds Witch Build

In Ni No Kuni: Cross Worlds, Witch is the class with the most destructive potential, but all that power comes at a cost. The cost is to be paid in the form of a fragile body.

The Witch is the official glass cannon of Cross Worlds with AoE attacks obliterating enemies that dare to come close to debuffs that can help the whole team, the witch has got it all.

In this guide, we bring you a build that will help you unlock the true potential of the Witch class.

  • Headgear: Immortal Helmet
  • Armor: Black Knight Amor
  • Gloves: Master Gloves
  • Boots: Flash Shoes
  • Ring: Abyss Crystal
  • Earring: Demon Cube
  • Necklace: Tyrant Scale
  • Familiar: Arachnes, Hog-Goblin, Penguicorn, Ebon Taurex
  • Weapons: Chronos Spear, Decimation Spear, Milky Way Spear
  • Special Skills: Twilight Nova, Frozen Storm, Shadow Disk
  • Gems: Accuracy, Critical Damage
  • Passive Skills: Rapid Pulse, Crush Armor, Exquisite Sense

Since the witches are fragile beings, we need to give them every sort of added protection, thus staying safe from any debuff is important. Immortal Helmet headgear will keep you safe from enemy debuffs.

Extra protection never hurts, literally. The Black Knight Armor will give you the extra layer of protection you need and will also reflect back 10% of the total damage received to the attacker.

The master gloves will give you a 7.5% damage buff when your total HP is above 80%. Since our build is fully focused on DPS, these gloves will be the best choice for this build.

The Flash Shoes will give you a speed buff and since the witches are weaklings, thus they need to be constantly on the move to avoid enemy attacks. These shoes are a good pair with the Last Shadow ability.

Arachnes, Hog-Goblin, and Penguicorn are one of the most lethal combinations for this kind of build that focuses on DPS. If you plan to get darkness special items, this is the combination for you.

Abyss Crystal will give you 100% of attack as water damage per hit. Demon’s Cube will give the player a 10% extra chance of dealing 200% attack as fire damage to a nearby enemy. Finally, the Tyrant Scale will have a 5% extra chance of creating a shield to nullify attacks when attacked.

If you want to create the best combo for a darkness-type build, Chronos Spear, Decimation Spear, and Milky Way Spear is the best combination and will give you the best damage per attack.

Twilight Nova will work best with the witch’s passive ability, last shadow. Frozen Storm is one of the best water element skills and deals massive amounts of damage. Shadow Disk ability followed by the deadly spike ability will bring the enemy down to its knees.

Rapid Pulse, Crush Armor, and Exquisite Sense will be the best combination for a full DPS build and with each ability serving its purpose.

Accuracy and Critical Damage will be the buffs you need to go for due to the fragile nature of the witch, you will need to focus on hitting the enemy first rather than dealing critical damage.
