I wish I knew that it wasn't smart to use training points on the moon school. I trained moon spells, but I thought I would have the same health, and better cards than the polymorphs have.

If I had known my health was normal for storm. I had just done a boss in krok with a thamaturge who had nearly twice as much health as I did. So I took off all of my gear to find I had about 900 health. I was thrown into panic and put the highest health adding gear (It looked pretty bad, uncoorinated. yeah I care about that XD) So I parade around krok in this until I hit about 1,000 health and finally change outfits.

I wish I knew how to defeat tougher enemies wearing armour. When I kept on dying in Firecat Alley I said, "why can't I defeat this boss? He has too much health!" Then I asked a friend what i could do to defeat him on my own (none of my friends were ever avalible ) and he said, "You can buy some armour in the Shopping District." I bought some and defeated the boss afterward .

I wish I knew that you need pips for healing spells.. I always thought that it only pops up when you needed it but one day when I needed it I didn't get it and died. Then I found out about pips by deuling diego's tutorial... now when I need them I always use 0 pip shields or clashes!

I'm still fairly new to the game but I wish I had known sooner that in a group battle I caould see who was attacking who and with what spell. I didn't notice that until I was a level 17.

--I wish I knew how accuracy related to fizzling; I always wondered what the little target symbol was.
--I thought you were supposed to train in every school, so I spent my training points on learning all the rank one spells and eventually had to buy them back.
--It would have been nice to know how to switch realms.
--I really didn't know how to use treasure cards at all. I knew what they were, but I couldn't figure out how to use them.
--I also wish I knew I could discard cards.

I did not know (until I was level 10 or something) that you could fizzle because when it did I was like "What Happened?". I wish I knew that there was a master merchant.....because I couldn't find any scrap iron..........er....yeah. Stay Cool Mrs.Greyrose. Lol I wasn't joking.

I wish I known how what actual strategy was. All I really did was I kept on spamming rank one spells. A few years later, I played a lot of games with strategy in them. Now I am a dueling warlock.

I didn't know the percent of how much a spell fizzles. I also didn't know what the accuracy spell is.

When I first started playing Wizard101, I had no idea what traps and blades were for.
I wish I have had known what they were for when I first started.

I wish I knew that you didn't HAVE to train a secondary school. I'd always train up to the last spell in the second school and wonder why I never used the spells.

I wish I knew what accouacy was and knew that life could fizzle and rank 0 spells were useful. I wish that I knew that storm was a good fighting school. I also wish I knew that you couldn't get a secondary school without getting the lower level spell.

I have several things.

1: Text chat. I would always wonder what the ... means until I got text chat myself.
2: What the spell taunt is. I used to use it on pvp because I thought it did DoT or something like that. Same with the soothe and spells like that.
3:You could discard a card.I used to watch on youtube people battling an i saw someone discard a card. It was amazing .

When i first started playing i was a Thurgeist (life) . SOOOO I like never fizzled. Then when i made my diviner (Storm) The acccuracy is 70% and of course like most of use new people or **NOOBS** as people say didnt know that. And i always fizzled on my storm and never on my life. The i realized this colorful spiral thing under my character screen!!! I was wondering what it was of course. So i clicked it. And it said accuracy???? i was like what is accuracy then i Asked Google cause he is really smart. And it said it sometimes is helpful from keeping your spells not to fizzle!!!! I was excited! So the is waht i have learned over the couple years i have played Wizard101

Hope you enjoyed my story!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I wish I knew how to properly use training points. I wasted them on pointless spells. I also wish I knew how to use tresure cards and how to switch realms.

I wish the intro told me more about the different schools and let me pick one that fit my playing style.

The questions don't really help. My favorite color is purple... OK? So?

There should be something like this:

"Hi, wecome to Ravenwood. What would you like to do?"

Team Defense / high level PvP - Ice

Team Healer - Life

Team Damage Dealer - Storm (caution - low health)

Damage Dealer/Aggressive Soloist - Fire

All-Around/Soloist - Death

All-Around/Team Support - Balance

Mid-Level 1v1 PvP/low level solo - Myth (not recommended for solo questing above level 70)

etc

The questions and intro don't really give us an idea what the schools are like, or what they are best for.

I ended up making one of everything, but had serious regrets about my first pick.

I wish I knew about training points too, lol!! I wasted most of mine too and It would've been helpful if you made training points clearer in the beginning.
I also wish I knew about treasure cards, reagents, realms, friend lists, pets, mounts, and schools. The Beginning of the game was so confusing to me
