    Warlock has come to be known as synonomyous with “traitor” or “oath breaker”, whereas wizard is associated with a wise man or a very skilled practitioner of magic.
    In my years of witchcraft, I have mostly only seen either of these terms used in fictional stories – books, movies, etc.

  2. There is no such thing as a warlock. It was originally thought that a male witch was a warlock, but this is not so – males and females are both considered witches. The world warlock basically means “traitor”.
    A wizard would be in reference to Harry Potter.
    Have a lovely rest of the day. Happy Early Halloween.

  3. A wizard is a powerful enchanter and invoker of spells. They are usually part of the battle hence like warriors of the magical world.
    Warlocks are male witches and are mostly solitary. Their magic is nowhere as powerful as a wizards.
