I'm going to try a new wizard, but this one is going to focus on pvp instead of questing, like my original wizard. I'm stuck on what school to make her. I'm thinking ice, life, or myth. Please tell me which one you think is best, and why!
I would say balance. It gets a lot of great utility spells at high level, such as supernova and mana burn. Judgement does a lot of damage. Doom and gloom can be great to have, so that they don't just heal of your damage. Savage paw can be very good for damage, and then follow it up with another attack. People have beaten me a few times just by spamming supernova, mana burn, scorpion, savage paw, and doom and gloom. So I think that out of the schools you listed, balance is the best for high level pvp.
Balance is terrible at PvP; we cannot wand off weakness or break shields, and our only heals are over time. That said, people do like to spam Life dispels, which won't affect a balance wizard, for obvious reasons.
If you're looking to rank up, go with Ice or Life, maybe Myth (for earthquake, shatter, and piece). Fire is also a choice, since they have lots of DoTs.
I'd recommend Ice. Once you get Tower Shield you'll be protected from damage and it cuts down the max Judge strategy. Volcanic Shield protects you from the most powerful schools in the game. The trick with shields is to never shield too early.
There is a point I should make though. You don't get Iceblade until level 38. This means that at around level 20-25 (I think) you should train Elemental Blade. That isn't the only useful spell you get in Krok though. At some point you get Frostbite, which is damage over time. This is great for getting around shields.
Okay, I got life! So I guess I'm sticking with that one. Her name is Cheryl Willowsong, if anyone wants to friend her. Anyone have any tips for PvP with a life wizard?

Life... I don't own one but I have a very close friend who is one. You are most about heals, until level 58+. I recommend a secondary school of fire or death, and carry some tc's (no it is not cheating or noob-like) so like sun spells, star spells, wild bolt, doom and gloom (if backup school is fire). Also have a high level close friend so you can farm Celestia bosses for tc's. go to the bazaar and find the best gear for your life. Also, while you are farming, look for some good pets like I think astreus drops the sea dragon. Start with practice, then ranked, then tourneys, and work your way up there. Also have good shields, and stack blades and traps. But, also quest a little because a level 1 life doesn't even have a chance against a level 90 warlord. Here is a good example of dangerous- Tc bladestorm Tc balancebalde Tc dragonblade Spirit trap (check out niles, the balance tree) Tc spirit trap Colossal Tc spirit blade Spirit blade (niles!) Life blade Tc life blade That astral spell that increases your damage/vengeance (either will work Tc life trap Life trap (go to colossus Boulevard, then go near mindy pixie crown, then go into the circle with the building, enter the building) Highest attack spell at moment= BOOM!
