Storm needs a comeback to PvP!

I know what you are thinking, "oh storm is too overpowered, they got stuff like insane bolt and wild bolt" When the actual problem is that they are really getting badly nerfed. Now, I feel that KingsIsle must make the next "Storm Only" spell the most powerful! Storm needs to come back to PvP, because it should be the most hard hitting and the most hardest class to fight, not ice! Ice is turning into storm, but higher health, so I believe we should nerf ice, not storm! Please post your agreements or disagreements here.

Nerf Ice which is already one of the weakess schools, I disagree.
If you want to neaf any school it should be Fire or Myth, not a second ranked school like Ice.
Storm is the only school that can drain health faster than one can heal.
I'll repeat that, the only school that can do that.

If you are concerned about the Hp, get a pet with an extra 120 hp and the amulet for another 350 hp. Add that to a level 70's 2400 and you got 2850, almost what Myth and Death have.
Get your resist up to 40 percent, and you have a Wizard that can heal if needed and stay alive along enough to do combo and real damage.
Not hard to get 80% damage on a Storm, and you got a guided missle waiting to hit.
No one can live pass a few Wild bolts that go critical and a good combo.
That is the way Storm is, it comes in and does huge damage fast.
It it designed to be the way it is, a storm is not suppose to fight like Ice.
Do that and you will most likely lose, that simple.

Look around and you will see lots of Warlord Storm, even in 1v1.

Storm has been messed up for a while after what they did to wild bolt 10 or 100 or 1000 It might be good for other schools in pvp easier for them since we dont have that advantage of wild bolt but look at balance always using judgment in pvp we should have some kind of advantage besides hitting hard like other classes

Yup, on another site we have people ranting about everything Storm gets...

I myself disagree with the new Storm pet, and everyone else just start ranting about my feedback.

The sad truth is we have too many haters... They don't want Storm to get the fair-share like everyone else.

Those same people don't want us to get better pets or better spells...

People usually complain about the damage, in test everyone complains on attack, then in the arena everyone has shields so those complains not only made us weaker in pvp but now we suffer in pve.

So you dont have a storm wizard? before you go judging schools you first should learn about them from the outside and the inside. You should go make a storm wizard then see how it is.

AstroStorm,

Guess what, I do have a Storm, Transcended also, I also have a Transcended Ice, plus a Blance, Death, and Myth. So when I say what I say, I know what I'm talking about.
I've PvP'ed for a long time.

Storm can win any match, within 6 rounds, and I have my head wrobbled many times by a Storm Wizard. I have also stopped many Storm Wizards also. Storm is the only wizard that can drain health faster than someone can heal, in almost all cases. There may be a few Life Wizards with insane criticals that could outheal a storm, but that would be few and far between.

Storm is designed a certain way, it has to hit hard and have a little luck.
It's high hitting power, combined with it's lower health and resist, but high Criticals, all balance the wizard out. There are many players that don't know how to play Storm, and do a terrible job of it. Those are the ones that say storm is not any good in PvP. I have seen many many Warlord Storm, it's just a hard Wizard to be consistant with.

Joe.

I am a Storm. I disagree. Storms alleged "nerfs" have had no dramatic affect. We still deal the most damage, and are devastatingly effective in the right hands. If any school get's the games most powerful spell, PvP on a whole will become broken. And the fact that one school should be dominant over the others, that's just wrong.

See people? actually experiencing a school for yourself is a better way of determining a school's power and worth, more so than listening to other people who don't know the vital points in a school's gameplay. Thank you for giving a logical response towards storm.

Well, storm has been shockingly resurrected.

Storms new Healing current allows storm to easily heal themself and with the new Enfeeble spell, Storm is on it's way to new heights, even in 1v1 PvP.

These spells are exactly what storm has needed. Now, also, with certain new plants that drop great cards for storm, yeah, storm is on a huge uprise in PvP.

Be prepared to be shocked and defeated by storms in PvP once again!

I've tested these new spells and i must say, they make pvp so much easier, now i can heal and reduce enemy damage without the use of life or shields, perfect.
