Professor greyrose can you please give me some reasons not to make these stronger? Also i think death needs another minion or have the one we already have use more death moves. Please consider al of this.

Ok, settle down, class; Time for a review on Buffs.....

Try this combo, which you should have loaded up in your Death Deck, if you are a competitive player at all :

Ghoul (the weak spell) + Death Blade + Death Trap + Curse

Now, if you say the end results of THAT is weak, I openly ask what you think is strong, since the 3 extra Spells there create about a +90% damage boost.

Its not the individual spells, fellow necromancer; Death's strength lies in its combinations. My own fave is Vampire + DeathBlade + Death Trap + Curse, a combo I have used to score one-hit Kills on a few of the higher level Bosses....

I've got to agree with the consensus here -- if anything, Death is by far the STRONGEST school in the game. It's the traditional necromancer/warlock class of many MMORPGs -- built for soloing.

Not only do they have more effective (and just plain MORE) unique damage boosting spells at their disposal, but they also have the benefit of never having to sacrifice the offensive potential of a turn in order to heal themselves.

Making our max damage as high as Storm would be a recipe for completely overpowing the school .... unless accuracy then fell to 65%. I doubt any necromancer would want THAT. :P
I'm not sure "strongest" is the best word for it, though yes, it can be just as strong as us storms, even greater. I think "powerful" is the better word. And by the way, Death is one of the two schools [the other being storm ] that hit the absolute hardest when it comes down to it

Each school has at least one minion, here are the levels that the minions are available through a quest.

Fire - level 28
Ice - level 28
Death - level 28
Storm - level 18
Life - level 18
Balance - levels 18 and 38
Myth - levels 2, 7, 18 and 38



Thats true, but Death has more minions than Myth and you get them all in the same level.
Example: If you have all gained pips you get a Death Incarnate

Also, as you get a higher level you get feint, which bumps the buff +70% by itself. My personal favorite is vampire+ spirit blade (balance school) +deathblade+ feint+ curse + death trap. I get around 2000+ damage when i use it. nowhere near underpowered my friend.

death is over powered MAGORLY!

let's say your fighting a balence, it cast a -25
damege, and your'e 700/1400 health.
you can use a sacrafice, it'll do 62 1/2 damege.

no death should not have stronger spells!! then death would would be unstoppable! and you have banshee and spells like that that are strong if anything. and death would then be as strong as life pretty much at healing! I think if KI changes this i will quit wizard 101

O.K., you can't help but notice that death only does 160 damage for 2 pips while storm does about 300 with two pip lightning bats, but you have to realize it heals you, and if you chose the right secondary school you could do a lot of damage...

You say WRAITH IS WEAK!? you never saw the damage earthquake does and earthquake is about the same damage as lighting bats at full power with a storm blade .I would kill to give away my earthquake for a wraith.

and death blade

I, for one, think that Doom and Gloom is utterly useless.

It's supposed to half healing spells, right? And yet death is based around spells that steal health. Why is it that it halves your draining spells, and not only healing spells like Unicorn, Pixie, etc.?

It still looks cool though..

I agree with helios these are the amount of minions each school has:

death-12
myth-4(oh yeah myth has the best minions)Being sarcastic
ice-1
fire-1
life-1
balance-4
storm-1

Death can already drain why does death get the best minions i mean they have drains, the best minions, strongest traps and blades, also feint

Also proffesors why do death have more minions if minions are myths specality?

For crying out loud! You know perfectly well that the "underpowered" ones heal you some, and there's a descriptor somewhere RIGHT IN THE GAME that says "Death. . . is an advanced school, simply because most of its spells take multiple step combinations to use effectively"!

i think doom and gloom might be better if it didn't affect you. But then again...it might seem a little overpowered...
