Hello,

This is my first post in the forums, Ive been playing wizard101 for a little while now, I have 2 accounts (which are paid) and also bought a lot of crowns. Now I am wondering why the creators of this game make it so Balance is soooo much stronger than any other magic class. It does not seem right. Every class buy balance has -70 and -80 percent shields, but not balance as far as I can find. There are global spells that do it, but those work for all the classes. Its not right to give such a powerful spell to balance, with out the -70/-80 shields for the other classes to protect themselves.

Just a thought, the game needs to become balanced and equal for all classes, and not learning towards one magic class.

Thanks again

You need to learn tower shield and weakness. Judgment is a strong spell if you allow it to be. Keep in mind that all the blades/traps that can augment judgment are also susceptible to weakness and tower shield. Once you tower or put weakness, there's nothing a balance wizard can do to counter that other than try to hit through it. They can't wand off the weakness/tower; they can't prism around it.

Don't just go around spamming tower and weakness though, if they have 6 pips or higher, weakness is a good idea. Wait until they cast a blade or trap before putting a tower shield up. Timely shielding rather than spamming shields is the key here.

In terms of protection, the standard balance tri-shields are only 50% compared to the other 70-80% shields. Don't be afraid to hit through them.
