PvP Ranking: Rank and Judgement/Wild Bolt

Ok, this has happened to me in MANY matches, I get killed by Warlords Commanders and Captains, like today, me and my friend were doing a 2v2 match, and neither of us are really good, so we got matched against a storm private, not bad, and a death commander. Bad. His resist was awesome, so we couldn't win. What i am saying is if you have a team or doing a 1v1 lets everyone be matched with a person that is the same rank as you. Not lvl, cause i can beat many high lvl people, like i have beaten two life grands.

And also, those who use wild bolt, Its a BAD way to win, cause you have your rank by bolting every turn. Nothing about Judgement cause you get a lot of turns to kill cause balance tend to wait for seven pips to use it. Fix the pvp rank thing and ban Wild Bolt ONLY IN PVP!

Btw i am also looking for a balance pvp partner at least LVL 42.

Hello Kooch1,

I have great news for you, there is a thing called a shield that help's protect you for damage. In addition, if you would take the time to read in the Wizard 101 forums, it would not take you long to spot numerous complaints about Wild Bolt and Judgement. All complaints are from players who want matches handed to them, not earned. Take the time to develop a good game plan and execute it.

Ok i get what you saying, but i dont think my dad wants me asking for crowns so i can buy sheilds and tower shields instead of being able to HEAL instead. BTW still looking for a pvp partner not balance at least lvl 45 like me now. BTW i DONT want matches handed to me, i need a better stratigie to ATTACK! I can stay alive long enough to heal then attack thank you very much.

You don't need crowns to get shields. You're a level 43 fire wizard, you get an ice/storm shield (called glacial shield) by default. At that level, you should have a deck that can carry at least 4 of those. As far as tower shields, if you really like to PVP and haven't spent 5 training points towards tower shield, you should. On the way, you'll also get volcanic shield (a fire/storm shield) to protect you even more against wild bolts.

As far as attacking, use the strengths of the fire school. People cast fire shields? bleh, a 2 pip fire elf will take care of that. Follow up with a helephant, phoenix, or immolate while the elf is burning. Don't worry about buffing up for that one big hit, you're not a storm wiz. Wear them down.

Judgment? A great spell, but takes a lot of times to setup with all the blades and traps. You see a balance blade, use steal charm. There, it's yours now.

As a fire wiz, always get a fire shield on early (that's where having the volcanic fire/storm shield comes in handy). Someone cast feint on you? Cast immolate. You'll take off the feint and attack them at the same time.

Someone cast infection on you to keep you from healing? Use link, it'll break the infection as well as their fire shields.

Yeah but wat bout judgement? i know I could attack while they r getting ready, but so I can maxout a helephant i need a few blades and traps. then i need more pips cause I used two of them on elemental blade and trap (1 pip each). And couldn't i buy a tower shield at the fairegrounds from Sabrina GreenStar?

Tower shield is the 5th spell from the Ice School. Most people who are serious about PvP use 5 of their training points to get it. (At level 50 you can have as many as 18 training points.)

I suggest 5 in the Ice School to get Tower Shield as well as their other shield. I also suggest 3 points in balance to get weakness.

Additionally, if your having trouble against Judgement I suggest treasure Tower shields. They stack with normal towers to provide excellent defense against huge damage attacks.

Tower shields won't work, the balance wizard can use steal ward and steal the shield or use the dragon blade card. And i think the biggest problem with wild bolt bolt is that low lvl are using it, to cheat in pvp.

This is how I look at the Wild Bolt Conspiracy.

Do you know how hard Diviners work to even GET Wild Bolt? We have to go through all of Marleybone. I know ya think it isn't THAT hard, but think. Even though Diviners have the most powerful spells, they're the least accurate AND they have the least health. Do you know how hard being a Diviner in Marleybone? Big Ben is like a huge death trap for Diviners. You have like two potions by then, and even if you have some healing spells it is still real hard. And finding another person with TIME to do the whole tower takes a lot too.

Then you have to get it to hit!

It has a 10% hit chance. I know, you can get at least a 10% accuracy boost from spells, then another 10% from equpiment, but still, it doesn't take much to wear the spell down.

Here. It starts at 1000.
Use an 80% Storm Shield. BAM! 200.
Tower Shield. Slash it it half, 100.
Broken Blade. 75.

Then some boosts.
Storm Blade. That's plus 30%. About 97.
Storm Trap. 121.
Elemental Trap. 163.
Feint. 195.
Elemental Blade. 263.

And that's that. Or you could use this much easier alternate route.

DISSPELL! Use the Storm Disspell! It auto fizzles!

That's my opinion.

well first of all that isnt how shields work if you use a storm shield that is 80% it wont be 200 unless your really lucky it will probably do like 334 or something. I am a lvl 33 storm that is warlord from using Wild Bolt if they ban wild bolt what about people that worked for wild bolt!

Wild bolt is fine, it's balanced considering the drawback of having 10% accuracy.. at least in my opinion.

MY problem with it is the fact that anyone with a gran can buy the treasure card version and walk a level 3 character to warlord rank.

That is for lack of a better word, completely retarded. There is a simple solution though, that the people I'm talking about don't want to hear, and that is to ban treasure cards in PvP. Make it a contest between our two character builds and our execution, and not who has the most money to get cards.

You must be a good math student. Is that true? Lol. And I have seen Wild Bolt work 5 times. People, it's still true bolting every turn is a bad thing. I think it is a waste of mana and you let your opponent harm you. And no! You don't get Wild Bolt when you beat Marleybone. I have versed a level 5 and he casted a wild bolt on me and it worked. He was very tough that all of you would lose as well. Imagine if he went to Malistare. He would die so easily but wild bolts have turned up the heat. Like the guy said, please ban Wild Bolt ONLY IN PVP!

? Why? 80% of 1000 is 800, so why wouldn't it do 200 damage?

ok first of all i half agree with you but even so the bolt has a very low chance of working and as you know when you fizzle the card goes back to your deck even so the bolt wont kill you head on with no boosts if you raise your health and get shields like me you can be able to overcome your opponent and win the match
