Hi Ste4n, welcome back to the game.
In my opinion, the best pets for an ice wizard are ones that give a blade as a card. Ice doesn't get iceblade for a while at first, so that provides a handy way to buff your damage, but both your blade and a pet ice blade can be used to augment a spell. Try to train talents for critical, resist, and damage.
Some of these pets include:
  • Freezing Rain Core
  • Frosty Eye
  • Ice Class Pet
  • Ice Floe Siren
  • Icedactyl
  • Lord of Winter
  • Mountain Yeti
  • Shiverous Knight
  • Snow Beast

Welcome to ice! My max ice soloed the majority of the game, and while I did die quite a bit, I learned to tweak my gear and deck to match the battle(s). I've put a link in below to what I feel is a very good guide to the ice school.

If you're looking for a pet, check the kiosk in the pet pavilion. Tons of fantastic pets available. Look for something with spell proof and damage, and maybe a maycast heal.

Good luck with my favorite school!

As mentioned before,

I agree with looking into a pet giving a possible iceblade card. This will help greatly as you will not learn this spell until level 38.

Fret not though, you can still opt to use treasures from Bazaar.

I also agree with having damage enhancing talents trained on your pet. It helps a lot, especially as an

With that being said, I will instead provide guidance on how you should possible utilize your training points.

This is what I suggest;

- Train death up to the feint spell
- You can visit this school to learn Satyr in needed (would work best with a life mastery).
- Learn spells such as Fortify and Amplify (you'll meet this in Celestia).
- All damage enchanting spells such as Tough, Strong (another Celestial School).
