Hello. I decided I wanted to ask, why did you choose the school you are in now? Or the one that you play the most on, because we all have a favourite. Thank you for filling in your response, I shall be sure to read!

I chose balance because I like their spells.

I didn't. I was originally ice. My friend chose it for me, and after legendary I loved it and saw the advantages.
Death ftw

Well I only have one wizard, and the only one I ever made. I decided to try out W101, and so I took the test. It gave me balance. I wasn't sure what I thought about it, so I looked at the other schools and their wizards personalities, none of which sounded like me. So I looked at the normal balance wizard personality, and it was like it was describing me! I am exactly like the description 100%!!!! So I went with balance

My first time taking the test I got balance and it Was and is the school for me, than I thought death had cool looking spells and like balance, I had heard death requires some more strategy than other school like balance so I needed to try it!

Well, back when I joined in 2008 I just took the test and became a fire wizard. Ever since then my fire has been my best and favorite wizard to play on!

i chose balance because the quiz thinger told me to;
then, i chose the other schools because i hated balance
and left out ice simply because i didn't have room for a 7th wizard.

I decided to be a Balance because of the quiz. I did not know about the skip quiz button, and at first I got death. The description did not fit me, and I took the quiz again. Turned out, I got balance. Out of the seven schools, Balance fit me the most.

I choose Balance because that's what the test chose. All the other schools don't sound like me, but Balance does

I took the quiz and it gave me a life. This is a good fit.

Even on my other wizards I train life to sprite with the first four points I get. I do not like being caught out alone, or on a team, without being able to heal others as well as myself. I usually go to satyr just because it's that important to me to be able to keep myself and others in the game.

I'm also very risk-averse so having redundant healing and excellent starting life and accuracy gives me the peace of mind I need.

I suppose ice would be a good second choice but I've made an ice and gotten to about level 15 before deleting him, it was just boring.

I was originally trying it out with my son, I took the quiz and got first. I enjoy fire. After that, while helping a friend, I started a wizard, because I liked the hit and heal aspect of the school

I think I got Fire because I did the test and it came up with that. I really really liked it so I progressed with it much further than my other low-level wizards. And now I'm level 69 :P

poor ice Wizard. My first Wizard was Ice, the quiz gave me it. And actually, when I go into other games I tend to choose the tank classes as well LOL.

The reason I choose Fire as my favorite school was that when I first saw the commercials 1. I was a Pokémon fanatic (not anymore w101 fanatic) and interpreted the schools fire ice and electric as the only schools and I love fire (I'm red headed.) 2. Answered all the fav. questions to fire ways volcano, ruby so I was pretty surprised that there were 7 classes not 3 classes (electric equals storm) and I worked harder on my fire wizard than all the rest he is 29 in real realm 33 in test. While my second highest wizard is balance and he is about 12.

I chose life because I like being able to heal myself and others, and I like feeling safe in battles. I've always enjoyed being a healer or supporter.

no worries~ i run 2 accounts at once, so i do have an ice wizard on my second account; she's level 31 currently, and quests with my same-level myth (who is on my main).

back when, i thought ice was weak because people told me it was.
and then, i met quequeg's super-ice-tank wizard, Brynn...

mind=blown.

Ah, all right. Thank you for informing me. For a moment, I had wondered if I had run into you the day prior. However, I did not.

Darn. Well, if you're ever in the Spiral and run across a blonde, green-eyed promethean necro all dressed in white, with wings and a feathered cap, that would be me.



PS: I've met up with people from the boards over on Central~ if you have an account there, my name is El Veeb... so look me up, if you want to meet any of von's wizards in-game. :)

When I first tried Wizard 101 I took the test and got my opposite school, life. I thought it was cool, but I like solo in more then going in a group, so I checked all the other schools, and eventually got to Death. Death pretty much explained my own personality, so I chose death. And now to today death has been my favorite school in wizard101, and that's where I am now, a level 71 death wizard.

All right. Thank you. My character has long purple hair with blue eyes. She rides either a Nightrunner or Golden Kirin. She has the Life school symbols on her clothes, and the rest is black. I shall see you in the Spiral I suppose.
