Thank you PieMaster I totally agree that storm is the best! Even if a lot of things are storm. Prisms are great for that and my clothes give me a great resist. Finally somebody who understandes!

As a death wizard of course I think death is the best. If i were another school I would think that school was the best... These are all opinions! Storm is not the worst. I agree KI needs to even out bosses.

I think myth is best and i don't have a least favorite. But just because bosses are the same type as the type you are doesn't mean it is harder. You can use your secondary school spells or you can use prisms.

Not true. Only one place in Krok is mostly Ice, that's the Krokosphinx. have you not noticed that the three main part of Krok focus on the three Elemental Schools? The Pyramid is Fire, the Krokosphinx is Ice, the Tomb of Storms is, of course Storm.

If you know how to stack your deck, even if you are fighting the same school, it's really not so bad. I've played every wizard type all the way to Grand(some 2-3 times, made new wizards) and can honestly say that the game is pretty fair and even as far as types of monsters you have to battle that are same school. Also, remember, if you are Ice, at least you DO have a prism...Balance doesn't, so that is even more challenging to fight same school(especially since the spells they give you to use against balance often get blocked by Balance monsters' shields and you obviously don't want to use straight Balance spells on them either,) and there are quite a few Balance monsters and bosses...more than you realize.

Also, as for the spiders in DS; Most of the quests you are given to kill spiders in the Crystal Grove can actually be taken care of with killing the Storm Spiders. I actually prefer to fight the Storm spiders, even with a Storm wizard, because the Storm Spiders don't use Tower Shields.

By the way, I, for one get really tired of seeing these threads where someone feels the need to beat on a school. It's really lame. Every school has a strength, and every school has a weakness. It shows how good of a player you really are if you can handle both sides of any/every school. So, the OP here, really you need to learn to use your school better and enjoy it, stop complaining. THERE IS NO BEST OR WORST SCHOOL.

i totally agree!

If you get farther into the game and are a grand storm with full gear then you will find out that storm works 90% of the time. Except for bolt of course.

Throughout my year and roughly four months, i've come to a concluson: every world has it's own school. For instance, Krokotopia is of Balance. Marleybone is of life and something I can't remember (haven't been there for awhile). Mooshu is of Life and Storm. Dragonspyre is of Death and Fire. Celestia will possibly (Through my point of view) be of the new astral schools as well as ice and storm.
When you're fighting something that's of your school, think twice before you enter a battle. Don't move a muscle until you can figure out what school your enemy is. If the enemy is your school, then take out all of your school traps and replace them with prisms. THEN join the battle.
There is no strongest school. All schools have their strengths and all schools have their weakness. Want to know them? Here:
(*Each school balances out against their own*)
Fire-Ice
Storm-Myth
Balance-Myth
Death-Life
Simple enough?
To sum it up, just look before you leap.
Well, I hope that helps!

Well, I have 6 grandmasters (everything but myth), and I have to say Storm is probably the easiest to go after your own school with. As long as you pack your prisms (I highly recommend investing in treasure card prisms in case you're having trouble in a battle getting a normal prism to come up), you're all set. Not only does it take care of their resistance, but you get a huge attack boost to an already highly powerful spell. I'd imagine that myth is the worst school to have when you face a boss of your own school. The best attacks the myth school has uses a double hit, where the first hit is small, and the second hit is big. That's great if you need to get by a myth shield, but not so good if you need to use prisms since you'd need to place two of them for every big attack you want to make.

exactly that is why they need to balance it out... so there are 7 (soon to be 10) schools right, if there were 70 bosses in Wizard City than there should be 10 of each school. THAT is my point actually doing the math and finding out how many there should be.


The bosses are fairly well split up amongst the schools. The problem you seem to be having is that you're focusing on particular areas. Yes, some areas are predominantly one school or the other, but that's how it's meant to be. When you take in all of the spiral, however, you'll realize that the bosses are pretty evenly split up.

People seriously need to stop worrying about Storm's accuracy. You do realize that their hats, robes, and boots come with accuracy boosts right? You don't stay at 70% accuracy if you properly equip your wizard. Here's a little fact for you. If you buy the right equipment at the bazaar, by the time you hit level 45, Storm, Fire, Ice, Myth, Balance, and Death all have the same accuracy: 85%. So, you're only at 70% accuracy with Storm early on in the game. That also happens to be the same time that your power pip levels are low, so using your secondary school's attacks aren't just a waste of power pips. So, to repeat what others have already said, there is no best or worst school. There's only schools that are better or worse fits for your playing style. In fact, it's great practice to create different wizards and improve your skills at playing different schools and using different tactics. Oh, and in the name of all that's holy, buy the best equipment you can find for your wizard at the bazaar. It will save your life and make the game a lot less frustrating. Personally, I prefer to maximize health boost, power pip/accuracy boost, and attack boost. Defensive boosts are nice, but if I have to sacrifice one, that's the one that I prefer to do without, as I make sure to pack the right shields before a battle. Forget about picking the robe or hat that looks the best. If that's all you care about, spend the 100 crowns to stitch the right equipment to something that you like the looks of better. For me, equipment is about its effectiveness plain and simple.

I think storm is about the hardest character to level up through krokotopia due to its low health and low accuracy, and then somewhere around MB storm gets tempest and things start to turn around for it. A lot of people will quit storm early on due to its initial difficulties.

I have noticed that STORM bosses are very hard to find. There are like a handful of them in the entire game that I've beaten, and I'm a lvl46! Maybe that's how you feel but I'm true to my school!

I think myth has a lot of bosses and I never see balance bosses. I am full fire, half storm, and a quarter myth. I think fire and storm are the too best schools and balance is like second cause storm and fire tied for first. Then maybe life cause they can heal. But storm as worst school, LOL, you have to be joking, and your a storm wizard.
