Balance Shield?

I love to do ranked but, I hate losing but these balance wizards always beat me. I totally think it is because balance does not have a shield. They DO have attack spells. So there should be a balance shield. I mean life heals and attacks but they DO have a life shield. And I do not want to lose every time I face a balance wizard.

They do not have a shield as their is no opposing school and as a result, A balance shield is unneeded. Besides, you have got tower shield anyway.

i know exactly what you mean. i have a myth lvl 35 and everytime i go up against someone they judge once they have full pips and tower every turn before that. that is just dumb. I know some people will say you can can also tower and resist but if you are 30-40 there isnt much to do about it. I am super annoyed by tower spammers then judge. I want to quit the game because my 2 favorite schools are really bad where they are in pvp. My myth gets judge and my fire lvl 89 is always treated like trash in pvp and thanks to ice 102% resist fire is starting to become a horrible school. Even converts dont work for fire because the ice still has like 50% resist to everything else. Ice admit it you are OP beyond compare! Now i know there will be a lot of people disagreeing and maybe agreeing but these strategies have to stop evertime you go up against someone. I know a lot of people will either say just stop pvp or find out a new strategy but i am almost down to 300 points in pvp.

O: O: O: O: i agree i am a captain ice level 89 and i did a 1v1 against my balance friend and i had 2 different tower shields and she just used 2 different feints 2 balance blades (1 sharpened) and she just used judge and did 14 000 on me then i did a ranked and a tower a feint a blade mana burn 2 000 then you get the balance with myth mastery that is hard but i need a balance shield

I am a balance student and i fell neutral about this suggestion. I just want to put out there, that balance students judging and killing in one hit, is not the largest problem. Fire students have hit over time spells, and the shield only works for the first hit. Storm? Storm is way too strong to be stopped by a shield. Whenever i pvp, ( i am private rank, lvl 58), the opponent always puts a tower shield. There does not need to be a balance shield, a tower shield will work, and like i said in another post, at zero pips you can spam a tower all day

I agree but even there there are no specifically balance shields, there are no specifically balance blades either. They are forced to use universal traps and blades, so all you have to do is tower and they lose most of their blades and traps.

My first/main wizard is balance, which is why I don't like when people complain about judgement and having universal buffs instead of our own shields, traps, blades, etc. What you are all complaining about is what makes balance unique, balance's purpose. We are universal for a reason, KingsIsle made balance because it's unique to have a school that can give anyone buffs. Try playing 2v2 with a balance, we are nice to have around for blades. Basically, balance is meant to make you find a way around us in PvP. For example, using tower shield for defense against balance, anybody can train it. What I love about being against a balance in PvP is you have no other choice but to use pure strategy, which can be overcome within elemental and spirit schools, we are meant to be difficult to beat. It is what it is. As far as judgement goes, please everyone, stop complaining about this. There have been previous threads about ranters complaining about judgement. My question is; why judgement? If you're gonna hate judgement, don't forget to include storm hound, heck hound, and tempest. Learn to deal with using a different strategy against us rather than complaining about us.

It's called Tower Shield. Train Ice or go buy it as a treasure card.

it's called tower shield (treasure & trained) and spirit armour. use it.
if you aren't using what's available to you, that's your fault.

I completely get what you mean but balance has no school that opposes it. It's the only one with no opposing school so you don't need a balance shield, it's not worth it. Fire has a prism to convert fire to ice because if you are trying to defeat a fire boss and you are a fire wizard it is best to use it's opposing school. Balance doesn't have that. But I admit it would be good if Wizard 101 came up with another school to oppose balance.
