witch is spelled
and druid is spelled
so whole lot of difference there.


not much…


Druids were a specific religious group. Witches are a derogatory term thrown around by Christians at people who practice different religions they don’t like. So Christians would call Druids witches, but most witches were not Druids

I believe the Druids were Celts, witch can be applied to any practitioner of “magic”.

The Druid gives players several play style options. A Druid in normal form is a caster that can fight with spells or weapons. In Bear form the Druid becomes a Warrior with Rage. While in Cat form the Druid becomes a Rogue with Energy and stealth. The Druid can also transform into two other special animal forms. With its ability to heal itself and fellow characters, the Druid can also take on the role of a Priest. A Druid is not as versatile in its abilities as a Priest is, lacking the spells Power Word: Shield, but is otherwise a very capable healer.
Witches arent a class yet…
oh man…. Someone copied me…


Often the only major differences between witches and druids are the type of practice they use. According to mythology witches use dark magic, while druids will often deal with nature magic such as potions from natural sources.
Hope this helps =)

Both are fictional, for starters.
A witch is typically a fictional character that conjures magic, makes an “evil stew”, and preys on children.
A druid is typically a fictional character that is attuned with nature. In some stories, they can even talk with nature, and call about the trees/plants/sometimes-animals for assistance.


“Witchcraft” is very vague term compared to “Druidism”. A witch can refer to anybody who practices witchcraft, which could conceivably refer to any practice from tarot cards to eleborate ceremonial magick rituals (Wiccans, contrary to their popular belief, do not have a monopoly on the term).
Druidism is largely a neo-Pagan religion, based around the beliefs of iron age Celts:

Wicca is a modern neo-pagan religion, some practitioners of which take and use various celtic and druidic practices into the worship. Druids were the preists, the judges and the poet/historians of the ancient celts.
Witch is Christian term applied to any who practice magic.


The only difference I can think of is that Druids are more heavily focused on nature (aka, Fey, Dryads, Faeries, etc) and use more of nature’s components (majorly Oak, as it’s the most sacred of all) in their spells.
I hope this helps, if even a little.
Blessed Be.


Lol at the first 4 answers, and probably the others that follow which are all wrong. Witches practice witchcraft which is casting spells and making potions and stuff. Druids are more like ancient scholars, they weren’t “magic” and didn’t (try to) conjure or evoke anything. They were more like ancient scientists then anything else, experimenting with nature. As far as i know 🙂


A druid is from an ancient celtic priest class…… there are few druids in the world and those who claim to be usually have no direct lineage to the original druids
a witch is part of a mix of folk magic traditions of europe, in which case some of those traditions do stem from celtic nature religions which came from druidism and thus there is some druidic influence in traditional witchcraft and sorcery.
the person that commented that druids and witches are “both very evil” is an ignorant twit –
ignorant religious zealots are the most evil vile disgusting thing on the planet….
my two cents


Actually a witch can become a druid a druid has no need to become a witch. As magick is magick you can easily see its in the traditions and methods that define each. The only evil is the hater who pipes in with negativity.


The druid class can ware any armor they want and casts divine spells, they also do not have spell failure chance when they cast spells with light, medium, and heavy armor. They get their full spell book, and their spell amount per day are modified by their wisdom. They also get an animal companion.
Witches, female wizards I guess, can only case arcane spells, and must by scroll to fill their spell book. Wizards also have a spell failure chance when their ware armor will casting spells. Wizard spell per day are determined by their intelligence modifiers. Also wizards don’t get an animal companion but they get a familiar.
