My Personal Opinion...... Storm as your primary and Fire as your second
Storm has low health and i have trouble even beating regular bosses by myself. Against big bosses i would get pwned. Second, In long game, you wouldn't get anything from fire except letting you cast helephant and doing 1000 damage when you can be doing 5-10k.

Balance has a bit of everything. You can do a moderate amount of damage, but you can heal and once you get to the stronger levels, you get Chimera. It does 1040 without any boosts. Tons of boosts work on Chimera.

Death and ice for me . My death is able to tell over 50,000+ damage with Dr. Von's Monster, which lets me come out of just about every battle with full health. My ice can withstand high amounts of damage and isn't defeated easily. I like balance and life too, but it takes too long for me to defeat bosses with those schools

Myth, if played well. This is a difficult school to master for various reasons, but it is most rewarding when really strong enemies fall. Some areas, however, like the tower in Wisteria just "need a friend"

Storm not just saying that because it is my own school even though i love rooting for my school woohoo but it is because of one spell... Tempest

with enough blade traps and gear boost you can do a lot of damage just go to a lvl28 plus storm person if you do it correctly it will KO you if you dont use shields all you need to do is storm blade feint balance blade balance trap windstorm storm trap and at least ten pips also get some gears and then use tempest

it is also is good on cheating bosses because it does not directly hit them so they will not use their cheats even if their minions are dead also storm does the most powerful spells

lol some people keep thinking of it as best school which there isn't one but this is best to solo completely different balance and life are set up to help others balance making a friends attacks stronger and life healing friends while storm is a high damage school and seems good for soloing it has low health so its hard to get high enough pips to cast their awesome spells so the help of a life with their heals or an ice with their defense and taunts may be necessary so thats leaves me with fire with their damage over time death with their health drains and myth with minions well minions and health drains seem better for soloing to me but cannot think of which is better

Personally, My opinion would be Balance, to solo with, because you get Elemental AND Spirit attacks and just balance throughout the game, also the shields, and you get 2 healing spells, but when your facing a Balance Boss, and they spam Spirit and Elemental Shield, just buy a couple of Shatter Treasure Cards, then use those before you attack. ( This will work better if you have myth amulet, cause i don't personally care to use them ) I Haven't really soloed the WHOLE game, but i have soloed some of the worlds. As long as you use your Head and have the right spells and Armor, (Very good resist for the harder bosses, such as Avalon and Azteca would work better also with a couple of shields in, so your whole spell deck isn't packed in with shields) And your secondary school could be life, Just till you get to Satyr ( Life amulet needed if Wanted) Ice also a secondary school choice, for Tower shield. Just a Simple Idea Its fine if you don't want to use Balance. :3 Your Welcome for My advice !

I'm lvl 30 storm/balance wizard and i was doing great job until Marleybone. Now that i'm in Chelsea Court i'm expering an harder game and i'm relying a lot on my tank pet (Water Elemental). Playing with elemental help extends a lot the time of combat but keep safe my few life points; and i'm still soling all battles. I hope i can continue in this way, because there are few people when i play. Tempest Spell rocks but in Marleybone world a lot of monsters are storm resistent or cast storm shields, so i have to focus monster by monster hoping to do not fizzle 3 times in a row!
I have a wizard that I used for pvp but I got bored of questing on my wizard so I got on storm and I am currently going through worlds I solo mostly everything and flew right through wiz city krok and mb but I noticed I needed a little help with bosses in mushu then I got to dragonspyre the other day and I am having a difficult time fighting bosses because there health at mushu was 3000 and now boss health Is 5000-7000 so storm is good for getting the job done idk how anyone has trouble in marleybone it was the easiest world I ever did steven mythdust lvl 84

Honestly i'm a mage and i seem to be getting by the worlds by myself , you know because i keep healing :D.
but you know .. those mages got it good .. they drain everything, but they can't do it so often. i would say the best bet of beating this game is with mages ... so technically speaking :P

I assume there are many answers and opinions to that question. And many ways around it. It all depends which school you like best. You see if you like one school better than all the rest you will be more confident playing that than all the others. So choosing the best school fit for you is vital to this game (especially soloing).(storm) school hits mass damage but has low hit points.(ice) school does low damage and focuses on overtime and stuns and has higher hit points.(fire) school focuses on large damage over time and weakening other characters has average hit points. (balance) school is the balance between the three main schools (storm,fire, and ice) exceeding in weaknesses,blades,traps, and pips doing some pretty moderate damage.(death) school focuses on sucking life out of one non player characters (npcs) or character and giving it to the caster, having average hit points and decent damage. (myth) school mainly summon to win their battles, casting various maneuvers, average hit points, slightly less than average damage. (life) school also has low damage being almost equal with ice, they focus on massive (heals) and plain damage attacks. Along with your main school you can have a secondary school as well using training points to obtain those spells (training up to level 42 spells). And you get to obtain (sun),(moon). and(star) schools to maximize your wizard's strength (moon, sun, and star spells are unlocked at level 50)

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

True fact, but minions are not always very strong and cannot heal you when you are defeated by your opponents because they just disappear. Whereas storm, with a few healing spells and high damage gear can blade and trap up and have a one shot victory which is a very popular strategy a lot of W101 players are using now.

Probably life, Storm is already a strong school and they would make a good combo.

Agreed. Those classes are easier to solo with. I have a level 90 balance, there were only a few fights (besides from hard dungeons) where i had to ask for help. Mostly i play when the bigger part of the server is sleeping (time difference) so i have to be able to solo most of the game.

I just started a new storm wizard, he is lvl 30 by now and progresses great through the game. I gave a nice pet (double resist, infallible, fairy) to him and that made my little storm very effective. I could solo sunken city and that hard dungeon in Krokotopia (idk its name).

So agreed again, balance and storm are nice for solo!

I prefer Sabertooth. I don't want to feint, feint, feint, then enchant feint, enchant feint, enchant feint to get a decent hit.

Well I have seen an Ice solo all of Xibalba but to solo effectively have a strategy and reshuffle plus tower and sprite. And djtwist, all school specific (or balance blade) blades must be earned by a quest and can only be used (Non tc or item card) by that blade's school (balance blade is an exception).
no, go see the tree in crokotopia, i have the spiritblade and spirittrap cards, as they give death/life buffs and debuffs aswell as myth... works well in my case

I say choose or then get spells from both of them. can take s and ice may not have a good first spell but its rank 6 spell is powerful. And put the spell you get from the queen of the fairy's ( I forget her name ) in you deck its helpful. I'm saying this because I choose this combo.
