Balance is to weak.

Hey. I know this is how some people feel. I think balance is a little to weak.
It is not horribly weak. But I think our moves are too weak. I want better traps and blades. Balance blade is good, but I think we need a new blade, specifically for balance. I know some people talk
about this but I have been really bothered lately. I am a lvl 77 balance and I keep having to
ask my friends for help because I can't do it myself. I used most of my crowns on henchman.
Thank you for reading this.

Balance has been this way for a long time. Surprised you haven't abandoned your balance wizard and focused on another school. Balance wizardry is more adapted to boosting other school wizards - aka TEAMWORK!

I agree. Balance is one of the schools where they can be ok alone, but they are fantastic in a group. Balance is probably one of the most sought after schools when people do dungeons, mainly because of the boosts that they have for all schools in general. Some people can be really jealous of the Balance school, sometimes

Every school has its ups and downs, wizard. Balance is a powerful school, it includes all the elements pin-pointed into one subject. Think of it as a peacemaker, without it, all the schools would be "floating" in a kaleidoscope of confusion. You need to find the proper way to use it, though. Remember what the balance professor said when you first enrolled in Ravenwood, balance has a great deal of power and you must learn how to use it properly. Think of it as Math. Math is hard for a majority of people, right? Well, Math still helps you a great deal in life. It doesn't mean you're just gonna quit learning it. All schools have advantages and disadvantages. There is a whole world based off of this amazing school! Balance dates back to when The Fang was thriving and was active! Alhazered may be old, but he sure does have many stories. I wouldn't say balance is too weak. I'm a balance wizard and I can quest alone and defeat many bosses alone. It's about adapting strategy, young wizard. If you feel balance isn't right for you, make a new wizard! It's always stress-relieving to take a break from Ra and Judgement and maybe go on to another field of study! Don't delete that wizard, though. You might want to come back to it later on!

i know balance is weak since the class only focus on blading other people and since like alot of balance spells you can only use balance blade for like ra since spirit an elemental blades dont effect things like ra sandstorm and such others but spells like chimera uses balance also has hydra that useswhen i was battling and someone did hydra it hit all enemies with fire idk why though i know hydra is a single enemy attack but it was strange. I also do agree that balance is way to weak so KI should at some more balance class blades and a few better stronger spells so balance is a little bit more useful when there is teamwork and if they soloing dungeons

I see nothing wrong with teamwork.

I don't know... it seems ok... I HATE Weakness... so annoying. So, it does boost other schools... but it kills me sometimes.

I really don't see the issue with balance students. I have a balance that is lvl 86 and I really enjoy this school because first, even though balance seems weak to people, they can never find the true power within it and always underestimate it. Second without balance,what would become of power in the game? This is just my opinion, so hope you guys agree.

I really agree with you because balance seems of more a teamwork class, as I play most of wizard101 as a death player I've really gotten into just going out there and yoloing my way through bosses which seems to work XD. My second wizard is balance and I'm having a really hard time in marleybone as balance. Spells are not to strong so I kind of did give up on balance. Right now I'm an adept pyromancer, wish me luck XD.

I feel balance is a very strong questing school, but you should understand much of the strength is defensive. You get triple shields against spirit and elemental spells for free, and have plenty of training points to learn more effective 70/80 % shields against every school as well. This doesn't cover balance damage, but it is easy for a balance wizard to get gear with very high balance resist so you don't really need balance shields. Balance health is quite decent, and you have excellent healing spells that make full use of power pips. Your signature spell, judgement, can go 7 turns before casting; while you wait for the pips you have plenty of turns to cast 0 pip spells, and many of those spells should be shields.

My first wizard was balance. Until I hit level 60, she was a nightmare to play, and I almost deleted her several times. And, when I was just starting out, someone told me the exact same thing: your only purpose is to play support to others.

So I did everything I could to prove that person wrong. My wizard is a machine, and she has soloed the entire game through Khrysalis (save for the most ridiculous cheat dungeons, of course); her stats are far superior to other balance wizards' stats because I put the effort in. And, while I'm more than happy to play support to others in the right group situation, my wizard is often looked to as a DD (and I certainly don't mind showing off her offensive strength).

I don't particularly care for balance. But I have made the best of the situation.

Balance isn't horribley weak like you said. I agree with a balance only blade. Like a 40% blade. (is it around, im not sure... im only level 45)
Some better buffs and wards. A school we can have a boost on would also be nice. A few spells stronger than storm would be a cofidence booster for sure!
