Tower of the Seas  

Sea Witches and Sorceresses are the level 5 creatures of Cove. They can be recruited from the Tower of the Seas.

"Once one of Harek was poisoned by his wife. Since then, the presence of women in the army was considered by pirates as a bad sign. However, when it came to serious fights pirates did not shun to take risks and called Sea Witches under their banners. These dangerous women impose curses on their enemies and strike them by magic arrows from their spheres. Enrothian Order of Sorceress has existed for centuries. But despite the commitment of its members to the ideals of good, there were those who wanted to use the forbidden knowledge. Some of them became Necromancers, but others went to serve in the Regnan fleet and learned magic from local Archimages." HotA Facebook post

Special Ability: Spellcaster (After Shot)

Sea Witches and Sorceresses cast Weakness for 3 rounds on an attacked stack. If Weakness is already applied, they instead cast Disrupting Ray. These effects are applied after damage is dealt. Sea Witches cast at basic level, while Sorceresses cast at advanced.

Some may find the information in this section subjective or irrelevant.

Sea Witches/Sorceresses can be split into two or more stacks to apply multiple effects in one turn. It might be a good idea to wait until Sea Witches have applied their effects before attacking with your other units, since you'll deal more damage and take less in retaliation.
