Minecraft has all kinds of different hostile, neutral, and passive creatures. But players aren’t the only “humans” in the game. There are certain types of species that are closest to nature players. They are called villagers, raiders and illegals.
And within them, two types of hostile mobs are quite similar and yet very different, a witch and an evocator. They are both hostile and are able to use magic to kill players.
Comparison between a witch and an evoker in Minecraft
Let’s start with the main differences between a witch and an evoker in Minecraft.
From an appearance point of view, they are both quite different from each other. A witch has a purple dress on her and she is wearing a pointy hat. In contrast, an Evoker dons a black dress with a gold lining and wears nothing on his head.
A witch will have a straight unibrow, while an Evoker has furrowed brows, but both have long noses.
An Evoker typically appears in Woodland Mansions in Minecraft, but it can also appear during raids if players are not on easy difficulty.
A witch can spawn in multiple locations, anywhere the light level is below 7, during raids and in swamp huts. They can also appear whenever lightning strikes within 4 blocks of a villager, converting them into a witch.
Although Witch and Evoker are hostile mobs and attack the player, their behavior is quite different.
Witches can attack players by casting harmful spells on them and defend themselves by drinking useful spells. Witches can hunt players within a 64 block radius, and they cannot open doors. They also have a higher pitched sound.
Evocateurs have a different hand gesture when attacking. They have their arms in the air and cast their spell. They can run away from players if they approach them to attack. They are hostile to almost all mobs except the Illagers.
Weapons and attack force
An Evoker can attack players by creating fangs around him and towards players. Evoker can cast a spell to cause vexes, which can fly and attack players with iron swords.
A witch can throw various harmful splash potions like slowness, weakness, injuries, etc., at players and defend herself by drinking health potions.
The object falls after death
Upon her death, a witch can drop various things like a glass bottle, sugar, luminescent stone dust, gunpowder, redstone dust, a spider’s eye, and sticks.
Whereas an Evoker always drops a Totem of Undying upon death, and occasionally Emeralds.

Although these two monsters are similar in their handling of magic and hostile, they are still quite different from each other. One deals damage to players from potions and the other only by casting spells and generating various attacks.
