I am level 35 death wizard.I used to be a pvp knight with the record of 54 wins and 12 loses(i had always used talos treasure cards)but suddenly i saw that talos has been banned from pvp! Now i am a corporal with record of 55 wins and 38 loses.
Why was been talos banned?

Though i have a 60 myth who has talos spell but being 60 i face problems fighting other 60s.But yet i need talos for my other wizards.So does anyone know why is talos banned from pvp?

And there goes the problem I predicted a while ago... Anyway, they banned it because of people that abused the spell. Ever see the low level matches? That is exactly why they banned it, 7/10 they used a talos treasure cards and the sheer power of them could win over the battle. Which, I say if they were to ban this, then ban: power link, frozen armor, brilliant light, availing hands, virulent plague, and insane bolt from pvp, and if not, just unban it and just level cap it.

oops typo!
I think you meant to say Talos had a record of 54 wins and 12 losses.
You actually didnt do that much, except summon him.

Wow and its not even your school. You relied on a myth spell to carry your death.
Now you know why it was banned... ugh

gg talos.. gg

Talos was banned because of all of the complainers (Yes, I understand that everything is blamed on the complainers, but I actually saw people do it).

That's the red button: low levels farmed or brought an army of Talos, then unleashed them into Ranked pvp until they reached warlord. So they banned the card so no "unfair minions" will be used in battles like this.

Why shouldn't it be banned? It was used abused by lower levels who got to high ranks because of it. Say a 25 and a 23 are facing each other 1v1. The 25 is most likely to win, but the 23 summons talos and talos starts gaining power pips and using earthquake with blades and traps. Not only does the 25 lose their blades, but most of them don't have universal resist. So with talos summoned the 23 almost automaticly wins. In higher leveled PvP its not a problem because in almost all your attacks your doing over 1,000 damage, but for a 25 the highest they do is probably 800ish. Thats why the treasure is banned from PvP. Not to mention your not really being fair to people you faced by using talos becuase that wizard they have is probably the only one they have and they don't know you can buy an extremely strong minion which at 35 is probably unstoppable at the bazaar for like 1,000+ gold.

Wrong it was banned becuase of low levels abusing his power. I somewhat agree with slammer111 but the actual card wasn't banned its treasure was.
I do think that they should just bring it back and level cap it 55+ because thats the level conjurers get the spell. I can't believe this, but for once the complainers actually complained about an actual issue, which if wasn't dealed with lower leveled PvP would be trashed.

because it's way too powerful for people your level and under to use in pvp, that's why.

It should never have been allowed in pvp to begin with.

Oh well guess what? Now you have to learn how to duel honorably and actually try hard to develop a good deck and strategize. the rewards are bigger personally. The biggest payoff? You begin to understand the mechanics of every other school by adjusting your style to overcome your own weaknesses against the opponent.

no more looking for easy way outs. Use your brain, get into the arena and kick butt.

Hahahaha... Talos was asked to leave low level pvp For exactly this reason and briefly objected before leaving peacefully. Kingsisle should be applauded to listening to the pvp community and resolving this and many other real issues.

Why do you think you had much more wins then losses? Because you DEPENDED on Talos. Everyone did, and that's why they changed it. It's allowed as a normal card btw.

If they got rid of Talos, it makes no sense to keep Insane Bolt... it's a matter of time before Low levels get their hands on it, looking for the new high level spell to turn to. After Insane Bolt, it's gonna be Power Link, and then Efreet, Medusa, Snow Angel, etc. Just put a level cap on all of the high level spells, it'll make those that fight fairly worth their while...

If you are too low of a level you can't have power pips. 8 piped spells can not be summoned with seven pips.

Have you seen the Ring of Refreshment in the Shopping District, gives 30 Health, 30 Mana, and 2% Power pip chance, lvl 5+. With my lvl 5 Death, i have gotten a power pip or 2 in a number of matches.
I know 2% doesn't seem like a lot, but there is still the chance.

I think it was because lower levels kept abusing them in pvp. Honestly, I think that a level requirement would be good.

i think this is unfair to myth even though i dont have a myth student. i think this is because of lower lvls in pvp using talos or something i am not entirely sure

I was talking about people who were complaining about the low levels abusing him though.
