Does this aura also cut in half the healing you get from necromancy creatures like the ghoul? If so it would really limit its usefullness and make it very situational. If it doesnt then its awesome.

So does it?

I think that doom and gloom simply lowers all healing spells power by 50%, I don't think that it lowers the power of spells like vampire and goul, but I am not 100% sure. (I am 200% sure!)

Nope only effect heal cards with a heart on it. All the heal done be death is steal life so doom and gloom will not effect you.

Hey, while we're talking about this spell, I was just thinking wouldn't it be nice if it boosted death spells as well? Since death is only my second, I don't have any boosts for it like Death Blade or Death Trap. I think it would be nice if I could boost it a little. As an ice wizard whose spells hardly hit anything, I mainly rely on my secondary school, death. It would be wonderful to have something I can use to make them hit more. I realize that there is Feint, but that spell can sometimes be unreliable, since others in a duel use it up as well.

I believe there's your problem. Unless you're a balance wizard, your primary school will do better damage than your secondary if properly used. I'll concede that ice is light on damage until you get iceblade at level 38, but it gets better then.

I hate to say it but I think Doom and Gloom should also give a 25% increase to all death attacks and instead reduce all healing spells by maybe 20% or 25% instead of 50%.

What do you Death Wizards think of that change?

Windlilly,
As I am Balance/Death, I can understand your want for more death buffs/debuffs. As far as I know, you can't get the Death Blade, but you can get the Death Trap.

Head over to Marleybone and go to the amulet shop. You can purchase an amulet there that gives you 2 Death Traps. Those are VERY useful.

Death is already plenty strong enough without having to further boost its damage. The class is supposed to not be that heavy on damage (though it's not really that light on damage, either) in exchange for getting lifestealing. Don't forget that death already gets feint and curse for damage boosts--and the latter is unavailable to other classes, even for training points.

Yes, you're right. I had forgotten about those. The only thing is, I already have quite a nice amulet that I got from some duel in Krokotopia. Though it only gives me two Ice Traps, the spell that I have known for a really long time, it boosts ice spells by 35%. My ice trap only boosts 30%. And plus, if I put one of the 35% AND 30% traps on an enemy, it counts as two different things and takes up both of them for maximum damage. Combine that with the feint spell, a Balefrost, and an Ice Wyvern, it will be deadly, even with just a level 22 spell. The amulet also helps because then I don't need so many of my own Ice Traps in my deck, giving me more room for more important spells.

So I guess I will have to decide whether I want to boost my ice spells more or my death spells...

There is a pendant in Marleybone that gives you Death Trap.

Personally, i despise Doom and Gloom. Also its effect in pvp is good for when your opponents heal, what are you gonna do in a real battle? I haven't seen any monsters doing any heal spells except sprite in mooshu and dragonspyre. I was thinking they could change it, doing like 50 damage and converting half to health every turn from every monster.
