Water hags are monsters introduced in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. As their name suggests, they are found in swampy areas, near boat landings and tend to guard treasures. They are often accompanied by drowners.

Bestiary entry[edit | edit source]
- Folk say water hags are drowner's wives. If that be true, 'tain't no wonder why they're such ornery bitches.
— Shemhel of Dregsdon
- Some tales mention water hags and swamp bints masquerading as lost old women to lure travelers back to the rickety shacks they build in the wetlands. In truth, only a blind man, or a sighted man blinded with drink, could mistake the rank sludge and rotting carrion of a water hag's den for a cozy cottage, and the hideous hag herself for an innocent grandmother. Their wrinkled, wart-covered bodies stand nearly two yards tall, with skin the color of a long-dead cadaver and stinking of much and fish. Bony growths two spans long stick out from their backs, with hair like a tangle of seaweed and claws that would make a werewolf proud completing the picture.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- Unlike the Grave hag, the Water hag does not use its tongue to attack.
