IT IS A STORM ONLY SPELL! It can't be used by non storm wizards! It should not be banned from pvp! It's perfectly fair! I do not even know wild bolt or anyone who uses it, in fact, I don't know much about it at all. I do know it does 1,000 damage, it's storm only, and it has 10% accuracy. It would be unfair if they banned it from pvp or didn't let you use accuracy enhancing treasure cards on the spell. And, most of all, IT HAS 10% ACCURACY! There is nothing AT ALL unfair about wild bolt. Storm wizards are lucky if they could use wild bolt even once in a duel. If you fire wizards can have Heckhound in pvp then Storm wizards should get wild bolt! Stop complaining!

Wild bot is offered in the bazaar to any school that chooses to buy it. The 10% accuracy that is purported on the card seems more like 60% accuracy in actual play.

Actually, the problem is not the STORM wizards using it, but the NON-storm. I am storm, and I never rely on bolt, not even in PvP. There is nothing wrong with wild bolt, the actual spell, but the fact that non-storm wizards have access to wild bolt TREASURE cards that have increased accuracy. I think, to solve this problem, treasure cards should be banned, at least in ranked PvP. It wouln't even be worth using if the damage was lowered, so KI, don't consider that.

Wild bolt can only be created as an enchanted card. To my understanding, since the last upgrade,these are no longer available for trade or sale, since the upgrade. If I misunderstood the new changes, please accept my apologies.

I apologize, I was unaware of that. Perhaps it could be removed from the bazaar.

It does if you use enough pips.

There has already been an update that is currently in effect preventing wild bolt treasure cards from being used by non-storm wizards. Yes, there are still people who have them, but their supply is dwindling.

There are absolutely NO wild bolt treasure cards that are tradable via trade or bazaar.

I do agree that wild bolt can give a storm wizard a big advantage. With sniper which adds 20% and grand gear which adds 15%, the accuracy of wild bolt can reach upwards of 45%. Sniper is a very rare card though, and most enhanced wild bolts are only made with keen eyes give it a total of 35%. That's about 1:2 ratio. Simple storm shields help with getting the damage lower, and the annoy any storm wizard wishing to use bolt.

The whole reason stunning was banned was because it was seriously abused. It reached the point where it was impossible for a team to attack at all. I remember my first 3v3 match. It was against 2 conjurers and a pyromancer. The conjurers kept us stunned while the pyromancer used fire dragon. We couldn't do anything for the entire match, not shield, not heal, not even cast a single spell. Wild bolt and stunning were on completely different levels, which is why they did what they did to stunning.

Wild bolt is more on the same level as judgement. There is nothing that KingsIsle will do about it. If you're any good at PvP, you'll find a way to win, even against wild bolters.

I don't think wildbolt should be banned from pvp. But i will say that i have been attacked by it from low lvls who were not storm and had incredible accuracy :P
It gets annoying at times but i guess the only solution is to fight back and use shields

The last update keeping wild bolt out of non-storm wizards was a big help. Wild bolt does not give storm too much power, as stated above, it's accuracy is rarely over 35% - if you, as a storm wizard, rely on your bolt working, you won't get very far. Also, consider, storm shields are rarely in short supply in pvp. If any school has a great advantage in 1v1, it's myth, and we all know when we are facing a myth warlord in 1v1, you will be lucky to win. I don't mind this, even though I have no myth wizards, it's what makes them myth.

Ben.
