Need help with Balance and stats

AuthorMessage

Hello I am somewhat new to wizard101 and have been playing for about a month. I am a Level 42 Master Sorcerer in Balance and seem to have a lot of issues with understanding why I cannot cast so many spells I get a lot of grey cards and never seem to get the proper element shields when fighting a boss fight. I also have no idea where to get balance equipment for myself to bring my stats up. This is what I am at right now.

Damage is 16
Resistance 30
Accuracy 0
Critical Rating 0
Block Rating 0
PIP 41%
Healing in/out 18% / 9 %
Stun and Armor 0

How can I get these stats up? Is there something I am missing? I have finished Wizard City and Krokotopia, 99% of Marleybone and 50% of Mooshu . So what do I need to do to get help to bring myself up to my level? It is getting frustrating! Any ideas would be helpful.

Thank You

The greyed out cards are due to lack of pips, in front of you at your feet, to be able to cast them. All cards have a number in the corner that tells you how much pips you need - the yellow power pips count as 2 for all your school spells and only 1 for out of school spells you may have trained. Each round you get a new pip. At your level shopping the Bazaar will help with gear - my Balance though Mooshu ended up with a Grizzlehiem looking outfit, I hated the bird beak hat, which balanced, health, damage and pips well for me. By now you should have a wand that gives you an extra pip/power pip at start up so you start with 2 in every battle. I chose a ring with extra pips and an atheme with just health and mana.

If you put your blades and traps out you must wait for spells and not wand in between or you use up your blade and trap. Try to reduce your spells in your deck so that you are not discarding a lot (right mouse click discards) to get to ones you need, this avoids wasted rounds. I used SandStorm quite a bit.

Balance was a bit of a learning curve for me to play, it can be honed to a good wizard to play but it takes time to figure it all out.

On my first wizard I was well into Mooshu before I really started to learn how to play the game so you are about where I was when I found I had to pick things up a bit to move on.
