best class to solo the game with

I have a level 43 life wizard and a level 20-something balance wizard. My daughter plays a mid-30s Myth wizard. From what I've seen, life wizards are pretty strong. There are definitely tough areas (typically life creatures), but if you use your prism cards well you'll be OK. The downside of soloing a life wizard is that the fights take a long time and are not as efficient as other classes. The upside is that you are pretty hard to kill.

Oh, another downside: the life sprite minion sucks. Terrible AI.

Balance is a more interesting class, but it's harder to play well. On the other hand, the balance minion is generally a much stronger assistant.

For life, I don't think it matters a lot what your secondary school is -- I almost never cast anything but life spells, beyond a few shields. It just isn't efficient to do so, given lifeblade and life trap.

Through sheer definition of the classes, it is suggested that Fire students tend not to work well with others. However, I'm one to believe that ice wizards are most cut out for soloing. I don't think any class is meant for solo. But ice has a moderate accuracy with moderate damage. They also have a lot of health and shielding options. Perhaps ice with balance or life secondary could solo for a grand amount of time.


I'm am ice/balance combo. :)

It isn't easy doing things by myself though. It REALLY isn't. There are far too many places with ice resistant enemies. It seems like they are the most common ones in the game actually. :( Sure there is the convert ice to fire shield, but that can only take you so far. In those battles I rely more on my balance or storm school spells, but since power pips don't apply to those it makes things very hard. The large amount of health and the health boosting gear that ice has does help a lot though. It seems that the players with the most health tend to be ice wizards. It does seem that the extra health just prolongs death at times though. :(


I'd think that Death would be a great solo school. Their school shields are excellent and REALLY boost their attacks. They do high damage and rarely fizzle out. The fact that there are a couple spells that do damage and heal also make this one good for solo-ing.
i am balance and ice to i have to admit it is kinda hard to solo but they still rock!

Well I think that balance might be the best school to solo because you get the storm/fire/ice minion plus the mander minion and you get alot of moves that have a random selection from ice fire and storm (in my opinion). I have 2 people in marleybone (life and fire) but I have a balance wizard too and i do most of my quest by myself and I am doing pretty well.

I have been successful solo with balance. I'm beginning to get worried as I progress because so many spells for balance are geared toward groups. I just completed Krok and all has gone well but I continue to update my deck if I know what enemies I will be facing. I have storm as secondary so it balances out pretty well.
Someone said as balance you can use other minions. Is that true and when does that come into play? I'm only level 27 and this is my first wizard so if any balance wizards could let me know what to expect I would appreciate it.
I believe my next wizard will probably be death with ice as a secondary. Has anyone had success with this combination?

Pft... and people say life is worse... Huh. It's ironic, really. Life can solo the heck outta the game (as a grandmaster, savior of the spiral, and master of nature, I would know...) as long as you play your (no pun intended) cards right. Life and storm are my combo, add in my *coughs* 30% boost from clothes to life, then blades/traps/e.t.c, and storm as filler damage,(litterally, I use storm as FILLER damage. Take that diviners! ) I'm practically UNSTOPPABLE! MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA... okay, I said I'm practically unstoppable. Now to throw in a quick ironic twist, Everyone always asks for us to help them out. Huh, were'nt we supposed to be, like, not good?

Balance or Life! for what is the world w/o these? balance can defend itself from anything and then later on highten it's attack and then later heal others with helping hands. Life can heal and you get a ton of friends and therefore money is way easier to get! :D

I think Balance should be, because they resist almost everything, they have minions, they can heal themselves, AND they have great shields and damage spells. And i'm not saying this because i'm balance too, i am just saying the good stuff about it.

well for my opinion, when i started playing w101, my first character i made was an ice wizard. and i soloed the whole wizard city and most of the second world(i forgot what it was called). but then it got harder but i succeeded and made it to lvl 50 easily. and i also have a death wizard and they are good and useful. my friend said that he has a death wizard and soloed the whole game. so i say death & ice are good. :-) 8)

well people that insult fire shame on u! Here's wat i think:
Death: Most spells hurt then heal. They are diligent. (hardworking) - Trisha
Ice: The spells over level 20 are strong. They're flexible. -MacEnzie
Storm: Their spells are high in damage. They are strong. -Pheobe
Fire: They keep on going, and the spells are not to high in pips. They have courage and are brave. -Hannah
Myth: Their spells have minions, which help you. They have big imagenations. -Jenna
Balance: Their spells have good damage and hardly fizzle. They are smart!! -Lu
Life: They heal you and have damage spells. They are peaceful. -Koukyo

:) Well those r my ideas! well, ours.
-Hannah, Trisha, MacEnzie, Lu, Koukyo, Pheobe, and Jenna :P

Hey um i have a death grand and a balance master and a myth adept and i think death is the best because you can heal and attack with some of its spells. Balance is good and all but what if you have to fight another balance?your stumped so you need help.Myth is good also but then again i am only done with unicorn way lol .My method is get a friend that has finished the game like a grandmaster and do all the dungeons twice so you get all the xp you can then go back and do your main quest and it goes by fairly fast.My brother has a storm master in DS and he cant solo i played for him for the heck of it and i struggled to stay alive and lost at the boss.my sister is ice only an adept but its not bad really.i think death is the ebst to solo BUT i think there are really best TEAMS of schools like i am death life and fire at the moment my balance is balance and storm and will be also doing myth soon.Bottom line is death is the best to solo and balance is to a point because of no converts and youll can get mad i dont care its the truth storm isnt because you die to fast life is ok but weak attacking same with ice fire is ok low accuracy myth is ok but death is the best.Me personally i HATE minions like when you haev traps and what not they use them with a low rank spell. :-( I am going to start playing my myth and my brothers life and my siters ice a bit more and look deper in the schools.My death grand name is Nathan NightStaff m balance is Matthew GriffinRider and i dont remeber my myth oh well lol!OH and arena storm is only good in groups trust me i played my bros he got pretty mad at me yea lost a ton of times lol,death isnt so hot for me in arena either lol and i personally a good team for arena is like [storm balance] [myth life] [death fire] [ice life] team wise like 4v4 (main school) storm life balance and myth storm for damage life for healing balance for attacking shielding and powering everybody up and myth for earthquake :P lol. AND THA THA THATS ALL FOLKS!!!!!!!!

Ok look you cannot solo anything completely. I am an experienced soloist (i play a death/frost ( to get tower shield) / and life the rest of the way. I am currently level 24 and have soloed everything i have done. I havent skipped qusets or anything. The one thing to know is balance, while it has a little bit of everything it is actually bit for grouping. The key is to keep a small deck (have a means of healing, whether it be a death or life secondary) and you also need to keep decent accuracy. My brother got to level 15 solo with a storm damage and life healing. He could not solo anything past level 15. But if i did it again i would play,

Myth with Frost secondary until tower shield and then life the rest of the way.

Hope it helped :D

Inexperience gives you answers like this. Keep using those minions as you go on in the game and see how much they help you in the later worlds. They will use your traps on silly spells and wind up being more of a nuisance than anything else. I've played the game through with every school, myth included. Both Death and Life are much easier to solo the game with. Death is by far the easiest class to solo the game with. If you can handle the early lack of power, balance is also pretty easy one you get judgement.

the best class to me is ice and life. why? because with life you can heal more then death, and also, with ice it was a balance amount of power and accuracy. :D
