Hello,
KING ISLE please tell me why does my life wizard fizzle at least 1 out of every 5 casts??
I have 5 % accuracy along with the 90% that should be 95% accuracy. This would tell me I should fizzle 5 times out of a hundred correct?? No , that's not the case I find myself fizzling 1 out of every 5 times! when I was lower-level it did not happen this much, hardly at all. this is my fourth high-level Wizard it and I noticed it happens a lot more in zafaria and Avalon. so what's the deal kingsisle I want you to tell me what's going on I shouldn't be fizzling 20% of the time!?

I think you need to post evidence of this happening for them to take it into account.
I'm sure you are just overexaggerating.

Hello,
Even though you have 95% accuracy, there is still a chance of fizzling. Each spell you cast will have a 5% chance of fizzling. This may seem like a slim chance, but it is still possible. My life wizard is currently in Avalon and fizzles quite a bit. It's just chance, really.

It's not like that. Having a 95% accuracy does not mean you will not fizzle 95/100 times. Imagine a dice roll. It's like that. You are most likely overexaggerating. However, I do notice that in Avalon, my fire fizzled 9/10 times, and I had 24% accuracy.... thats 99% accuracy for my meteors.
