so i am a ice wizard, and i am in krokotopia. i can never defeat this one boss because of the fizzle rate. i fizzled the same spell 5 times in a row, an ice spell, in 5 battles. My friend and i play together and he is a storm wizard, and he almost never fizzles. he did the boss again so i could watch and he fizzled one spell. please fix this i think its unfair to have me always fizzle as an ice wizard and he never fizzle as a storm wizard

Ice has higher accuracy, ergo a lower fizzle chance. Emphasis on chance. You always have the possibility to fizzle, the fact that you fizzle a lot is just plain bad luck. Get some gear that boosts accuracy. At least you're not Death, we get 85% accuracy but it's a lot harder to get accuracy boosts.

Well heres a little hint the highest fizzle rate that wont really ever fizz is life
i noticed all spells in life have 90% fizzle rate but ice is a little different

So try different wizards and see what happens (remember storm has lowest fizzle rate but high attack)

Here's my tip:

Buy some accuracy enchantments in the Bazaar, they are pretty cheap (15% Accuracy = 40 gold / 20% Accuracy = 60 gold). Once that you haven't reached Celestia, where you're given new enchantments spells that boost your attacks, you can use those to enchant your cards and avoid fizzling.

This is what I have been doing with my storm, my gear gives me 15% accuracy boost and I enchant my card with the one that gives 15%, so I got 100% and thus fizzles do not happen! Your case is even better than mine cause simply by enchanting your card with a 20% accuracy boost, you raise your accuracy by 100%, which in my case wouldn't happen as Storms start with 70% accuracy.

Hope this helps :)

Actually, 90% on life spells mean 90% accurate. Life has the lowest fizzle rate and storm has the highest because the 70% on most storm spells stands for 70% accurate.
