As an ice wizard, I have soloed lots of bosses, mostly because of the high health, but i always am needing help for dungeons. I don't think any school could solo the whole game.

Death end of story. If you cant solo this game with a necro your playing the wrong game. This games version of a necro is super simplified I mean sooo easy compared to other MMORPG's where the necro has to maintain a connection to the victim to drain the life or mana any interuption such as an add or a computer hiccup and "poof" you have stopped healing and killing. This games necro spells when combined correctly with a well stocked deck of just the right combo can rock! Now mind you thats with the exception of higher end bosses that are lets say cheaters or 4 mobs of 7000 hp each now THAT of course requires peeps plain and simple duh =p

oshinowo- death can definitely go solo its only obvious especially, because it can attack and heal at the same time. All that pips and mana you use is only worth it. It's like using two spells at the same time!

ive found that playing as a life wizard it incredible handy when you are plying all the harder levels. but when i got to dragonspyre.. you have to get help.. no matter how much you try in this game... your going to need friends.. plain and simple... teamwork is necessary
BUT i do like my life/storm wizard,, its handy being able to heal yourself and others.. and still kick some serious boss booty.

Clearly some parts of the world are too hard to solo, but death school is the most obvious answer to your question.

Actually, I think an Ice wizard + Death as its secondary school is best. Ice has extreme health while a Feint-enchanted drain spell does the attacking work. Death + Storm might seem like a good idea, but trust me I tried that and Storm is a horrible combination as it fizzles way too much.

If you have powerful enemys, I sugest a sorcerer/ess with a theurgist and diviner. Storm has good attack, so if you want to go on the offense, that's a no brainer. Life specialises in healing, so, you should travel with a thurge. Lastly, balance has all sheilds and their's a boost with a death foe.

Hope this helps! ^__^

I find for mostly solo play. Somethings need groups but for most available solo play. I find Life being the best school, lots of healing. Myth is also good with all the minions to help you. Balance is fairly good especially with a high damage but low accuracy school like fire, ice, storm.


What do you mean "low accuracy" , death is the same accuracy

I've soloed all the way through to malistaire using death wizard. The only fight I couldn't even stand a chance on was the grizzelheim gremlins. There's a pretty hard encounter with the 4 of them and the brothers that is just impossible to solo, and IMO it's about 3 times harder then the malistaire encounter.

In fact, IMO any wizard class can manage to solo using the right strategy. Death I found is just easiest because it is the most sustainable. If you use reshuffle, and stack your deck correctly, you will usually do very well. I've even soloed the new grizzelheim zones but found it took me 8 tries to finally kill the tough ice troll mob gurz I think his name is if I remember right.

Anyway... my two cents is go with death if you're looking to solo. The right strategy and the right pet will carry you far!

I will definatley NOT reccomend fire, that was my mistake. People allways say fire is powerful because of our DOT and AOE and our EFREET.

But its a terrible solo school, too many fire bosses and fire mobs.

I personally reccomend either Death or Ice, Ice because of the health and you rarely die. Death because it halfs most damage from enimies and converts into health for you.

Ya Balance is good... BUT i did get a level 10 balance/life, as a level 11 life/storm in pvp(AND THAT WAS HARD!!!) so whatch out balance. ok back to the topic... I think that a Level... um, as high as you can go life/balance/storm/fire MAY be able to solo Wizard101

Myth is pretty effective, I believe, given that you can use your Minions to augment the strength of your one-wizard "team."

I guess myth like Headmaster Ambrose said but I recon storm, even though everyone says they don't have enough health (which is true), they kill quick enough to survive a solo battle, I myself soloed the whole of storm and now i am onto fire, if you are not a very experienced wizard, i would go for: either myth or ice. Ice because of the amount of health :) i hope you found this useful.

I think Ice would be the best because of there health and shield options, and they don't fizzle a lot. Then as a secondary school i would use storm for the damage i have a level 43 Ice/Storm wizard and it is going fine. In my opinion Ice/Storm is the best. :D


I love my Balance and Myth the problem is they are both lvl 38 i should pick one lol but i keep switching as i like them both.

I like my life with a backing of death - I've been able to solo heaps of quests though the thing is I haven't got to mooshu and dragonspyre yet so that'll be harder... I reckon you can't completely solo the game with any school.

I think all of the schools have their ups and downs. A necromancer is good because he/she can attack the enemy and heal theirselfs.
A life wizard is good, because they can heal when its needed.
A storm wizard is good, because they can deal a good amount of damage.
A myth wizard is good, because they can summon minions to help them.
A ice wizard is good, because it happens they can get a lot of health.
A fire wizard is good, because they can do overtime damage.
Last but not least, a balance wizard is good, because they happen to get a good amount of shields and blades.

I have tried every school so far and the best one in my opion is definately balance. I have soloed all the way to marleybone and still kicking butts and taking names. There are those monsters that are somewhat harder to kill but that happens in every class, but there is a very handy spell called Judgement that takes care of that has 85% chance to hit and does 100 damage for every pip that you have. All you have to do is get the right deck put a couple power boosters in there a couple healing spells and max copies of judgement along with some other damage spells for back-up and your pretty much set just sit back and let your pips build up and there you go.


Balance is pretty good. I think life is good, too, because my life has, not always, but usually solos bosses and kills them. When i was dueling Zarathax, i waited 'till someone would help me. But i stared to get no patience and I tried t kill him, and i sucessfully killed Zarathax :D

I believe either ice or storm. ice because it has the highest average health in the game plus pretty effective spells and tower shield.

And storm because of the high damage count. Although you might wanna watch out for the fizzles bud.

but i have tresure card minions, Ambrose! But i am a tharmaturge! how about kingsile makes a tourtament (PvP like so nobody can do good minions)! Whatever wizard's class wins the tourtament, then that is the best school! (tourtament levels: level 1- level 5, level 10-level 20, level 25- 50, and level 51 and above.)

Well, Life is a great school, but often times I find myself stuck because I can't do enough damage. I'd probably recommend a school like Balance, Myth, Fire, of Death because of their balanced stats.

I think a good combo is Balance/life or balance/death. I'm doing that now so, i just figured. :$

This is for people who want a HUGE calenge: Storm/Fire. In hp very bad. in power really good! :-o
