Why Did You Choose Your School?

Jan 27, 2013
My first character was Death with Ice as Secondary. Everything was ok for soloing until I got to kroktopia. Then, I started dying left and right. Appeared not to be the best combination unless I teamed up with others to accomplish all of the tomb quest. I am level 35 now with this character and in Marley.. Still have not been able to defeat Chester Croors and this is frustrating for me at this point. Now i have created another character with Life have no decided what the Secondary will be afterwards. Anyone with suggestions would definitely be appreciated. thanks

I took the test, and my element came out as Fire.

I'm doing schools on each type, but I'm not done making them. My roots are with Balance, and it's tied with Ice
Ice has huge health and can take hits.
Balance is a team player type, and I'm a huge team player. Also, my first test showed me to Balance

Well i don't know why i chose life as my main school. Maybe because my friend forced me to choose it that or because the spells are pretty. I also chose ice,fire, and balance as my other wizards. Right now i am leveling up my ice.

Well my wizard was chosen by the test and it said I was life. I thought it was for girls. Now no offense to the life wizards but I was new so I thought it was I didn't know! So I retook the quest and got ice and I liked the description of it so I tried it out. I have liked it ever since and play it almost every day now!

My wizard was created after I took the test and the personalities matched. I have all schools except fire, which is a secondary school on most of my accounts, and I was getting tired of it. Out of all my characters, I like , then, then . I feel that death doesn't suit me so Monica Nightstone won't be very high-leveled anytime soon.

I was pretty Wizard 101 dumb when I started, and I can't actually remember why I chose Balance, but I'm glad I did. All in all I think it's the most versatile school...except, of course, when your foes are also Balance. Then it gets challenging, but I love a challenge. :D

I thought it would be pretty cool being a death wizard, and I liked it a lot after trying it, so now all of my wizards are death.

I chose because of the life steal effect and the large amounts of damage it can do with a few blades/traps

I am a level 54

and I did not choose the school!

I took the quiz so I could check my personality

but if I were to choose it would be storm or life.

that's all I have to say!

When I did the test I got fire. It seemed like a really good school since they have decent health and strong spells! I love questing with my fire character! She is my main one.

I think Is best for me, I took the quiz and i got , But after level 10 i noticed i didn't like the health limit and accuracy, So i took the test again, and i got Ice. It was a very good fit, Though you take lower damage, it's not a bad accuracy and the health makes up for it.

My sibling created this account and not me, so really the 'first' wizard in my account wasn't made or chosen by me. Now I've sort of inherited everything! But still, I did create the second wizard on this account.

Hm, I really have to think. I guess I sort of didn't choose since I took the quiz instead of skipping it. I took it quite a few times before settling on my most realistic bundle of answers: Ice. (In fact I got the results of a Life wizard about three times, Fire for about two, and Death for about four. ) Also, though, blue has been my favorite color for a very long time. It's quite natural that I would choose Ice. Even though Ice was my choice, I can't agree that it's the best school. In fact no school is the best school! Everything has its own weakness and strength.

I was pleasantly surprised to know that Ice had the highest health base stat. If it weren't for that factor I may have deleted my wizard and chosen a different school! And who doesn't want Professor Greyrose as their teacher? She was the most magnetic to me out of all the other teachers. And yes, I definitely agree with her that Tower Shield is one of the best spells out there. It certainly helped me get where I am now!

The next wizard I created started out as life, but I couldn't get anywhere with her spells. (No offense to all you Life wizards; Life is still amazing! ) So I deleted her and took the results I had gotten from my first quizzes. Since I got Death for the second greatest amount of results, she became Death! I don't think I could have made a better choice. She's been leveling up constantly even without the help of friends! (Which I could never do with any other school sadly. )

So really, in my opinion, Ice and Death are the most spectacular schools. They certainly have carried me far! Thanks for reading my weird little story.

my first time taking the test I either got fire, ice, or storm. I didn't know what to chose so I looked at the other choices. I thought ice because it sounded fun. later I found out that ice is the best.

I choose Ice because of the health and the resistance Ice naturally gets. I like the spells also.

and Life feels like a bad school. I didn't choose my school.
My sister did but she chose a boy by mistake.

P.S I should make a new wizard...
Of course not! Life is a wonderful school, and I am a Theurgist myself. I do wonder though, why do you feel as if it is a bad school?

I chose Ice because it reminded me of water. I loved watching Avatar the Last Airbender when I was younger and Katara has always been my favorite character so when I knew I could pick Ice as a school, I did! I also took the quiz as well and I ended up with Ice, so I definitely knew that ice was the school for me(:

I wanted to make a second wizard and I really liked Storm. I liked how they hit hard, I liked the spells, the teacher, and the colors. But what I didn't like was the amount of health that Storm wizards have. I knew it would be a difficult change for me to go from being an ice wizard with a whole lot of health, to be a storm wizard with barely any health at all. So I decided not to go with Storm because I needed the health.
My friend I had met in the game was in the Myth school. He was also a very high level, so he had the Basilisk spell and pet. I absolutely loved the Basilisk pet and the spell. You can say I fell in love with it. So I was talking to him and asked if he liked being Myth. He said he loved it. I noticed it gave a fairly good amount of health (nothing compared to ice, but hey, it was a start) and the spells weren't too bad. So I decided on making a myth character and I am glad I did. I am happy at how Kelly has progressed(:

I chose my school because they have decent attack and hit chance I also chose my school because of the minions!!! After that I think its obvious the school I'm in is

Well, first of all I ended up with fire. I got up to level 41. I liked fire and all but I just got bored of the damage over time spells and I realized I would better in storm because 1. there spells are super over powered 2. I spam a lot and 3. storm isn't like the damage over time it is sort of like kill instant or quickly nothing like the over time spells.

I am now level 34 storm wizard and love it.

I started out as a fire wizard and it didn't feel right then I went to balance and it is so much better. I also like there spells and I just got Ra.

I chose all of the schools but stuck with storm because I really love the spells and the strength.
