Why are minions allowed in pvp,it's like 1v1 battle and then boom 2v1 battle it's not right that minions are allowed. Some schools don't even get a minion till there a really high level.

I think it's completely fair. I always get paired up with a higher wizard, and then I bring my minion in. I don't think it should ever be taken away.

Minions are not actual players. They can ruin your strategy if they use the wrong spells. They have low health, no resist, no damage boost, and no power pip chance. All schools get minions by level 30. Every school gets a minion. It's your choice whether to use it or not to improve your strategy.

Minions used to bother me--especially in 1v1 vs fire. I complained "There is no such thing as 1v1 against fire."

Then I figured out bring low pip minion killers to 1v1. Problem solved. My Balance uses Scorpions for minions in 1v1. Actually, in 1v1 I mainly use scorpions period.

Minions can be good because it poses the question to your opponent, "Are you going to use your stacked blades to kill my minion, ignore my minion, or kill him with an off school spell?" The reason minions sometimes make wizards so mad is because their whole plan is to stack blades and traps for the Shatter spell - One Hit Kill, and they have no plan on how to deal with minions.

Also, some minions can be very helpful, like a fire wizard casting a triple bladed heckhound while his minion follows with a fire elf, to prevent the use of triage.

I agree with you, but I'd like to point out that Talos has resist and boost. And he is at level 55 (they get minions before anyways)

Just an observation,

Minions in pvp are totally fair as they cost pips and are very easy to kill.
