I think that balance is treated fine.I think all the towers are useless and you get some awesome spells.Death is the one that is mistreated.Everybody thinks that us death wizards are evil.we are not.just because our teach is evil it does not mean that we are.and we are not all goth and love black and stuff, we just got chosen in the special school of death.I say that balance is exagerating and that Death is being treated bad.we should stand up and fight.by the way balance is my second school.it is awesome.

None of the things you pointed out actually affects you in the game.
Not having a school banner does nothing to your wizard or their spells.
Same with the tower, just use a different one if you want to "party"
And it doesn't really matter that you can't see your school since your not even a high enough level to get any of the spells there unless your in Krok.

You do know that balance COULD get feint and tower, my main level 48 balance wiz is half death with a third school of ice. So i have judgement, feint, and tower shield so balance for me practically rulez.

I am level 22 with about 860max hp.
My secondary school, life has disadvantages aswell.
The healers are the first to get attacked in pvp
And the normal attacks pretty much don't do much.


Dude, anyone can have low life. You dont just magically have a ton of life. You need rings, those athemes or whatever they are called, and robes,hats, and shoes with life. Thats ur problem if ur not wearing them, not storm student's. I'm not trying to be rude, just saying....

No, actually, that would just make balance too much of a threat. It is already powerful enough without the work of feint and tower shield, so that would give it too much power. Feint and tower shield couldnt be automaticly put in the balance school's spells pile, you have to work for them. and i am not saying that i dont want feint for myself, but i'm just trying to be fair.

Balance is not treated unfairly. We sorcerers may not be as offensively powerful as other schools but we are very versatile. Remember, Balance is not as old as the other schools and was created as a harmonic blend by the Order of the Fang.

The only gripe I have about Balance is that I believe we are the only school who should be allowed to use the title 'Order of the Fang' above our heads since it truly belongs to us.

Wow I'm the one who made this post and I'm surprised anyone even looked at it. But after looking at it agree that balance isn't as bad as I used to think. But that may just be because I'm in mooshu and i have Judgement ! Oh and i totally agree with the idea of Chaos. Also i think part of it was that I was in marlybone and when i was there i hated everything.

P.S. i have storm as a secound school and with my blades i can blow anyone away with a charged up kraken.

to me as a pyromancer (fire) i addmire the power of balance cause every time a face one in pvp i always lose no matter what cause i got no resist to them and there no shield so it a pretty cool school then to me would be fire and then storm then like life and myth on same lvl and death and ice last

balance should not be given feint or tower shields, and with all the item and pet cards it already has way too many balance blades available to it

on the other hand, storm school could be strengthened a bit and have earthquake moved over to it

OK this is the first time Iv'e posted on these board things, so I dont excactly know how to repley to a certain persons comment BUT I AM GOING TO ANYWAYS!!!!! some guy said death is the weakest. BUTeven thought the highest death speel is 20 damage weaker than ice and 95 weaker that life, ity IS actually a DRAIN!!!! and when you use those sheilds with the swords on them the sheild are stronger (at least i know they are stronger than myth ones) and by the time u have enough pips to cast the spell all the sheild can make the spell a grnd total of almost 3000 AND 8) u get half the health back (also spirit armour doesn't work on drains)

ok balance RULEZ ! you can get realllllly goood armour and that stuff and alll sorts of sheilds so if ur secondary schoool is death or storm u can be a REALLLY powerfull wizard!!! u can solo almost any boss and win the FIRST time! If u were like me at your first day at ravenwood you were running around asking "were is the balance school" (in my case death) which really sux when you find out you dont have a school (at least for now) and then later find out there is one! but u have to be a member to get inu cant even port to a frient in kt if ur not a member. so that sux! and i noticed they dont have banners!!!!! in the library!!!!! not fair

I agree with Mason. I am not a Death Wizard, but it is true that Necromancers are treated badly just because Malistaire use to be their teacher. By the way, in case you havem't noticed, Malorn Ashthorn is one of the coolest guys in the spiral! Besides, Balance has the most powerful spell! It can brake through tower shields!

I actually disagree. Balance gets a whole world dedicated to them in Krokotopia. And it seems to me an almost superior class because of how Harold Argleston describes your early lessons.

Let's not forget that once you progress, you are being taught by the Order of the Fang ;)

I dont think balance is treated unfair. In my house I created a study hall and all of the school banners are hanging on the walls of the room, but I did not buy a balance banner. As a pyromancer I believe that Balance is not a school but an art of magic. No, there are no shields for it, but this form of magic does have very awesome, powerful, and magnificent spells. Sometimes I wish I was half balance. But balance wizards are definately not treated unfair.

balance wizards shouldnt be the only ones allowed to put the order of the fang badge above their heads. Sure, balance was partly created by that but in the game all wizards have to do that quest to move on, which means we get the badge too. I fire and I wear it all the time even though I in mooshu now.

yeah but if a balance wizard isnt a subscriber then they wouldnt get to see the balance school so yes it is. people say like "storm wizards come to the storm party in the storm tower" and balance wizards cant say "balance wizards come to the balance party in the balance tower"
just have it in the world tree but i agree with the no subscribe no balance school thing

Well what about the death school, you don't get the rest of the spells until after Lord nightshade. Also, balance gets some really good spells, (and no, I'm not talking about judge, heckhound is stronger.) You got can get spells like Hex, Power Nova, Weakness, even Hydra. The towers are for getting new spells and are not that useful. Balance is treated fairly.

I laughed so hard when i read this. You're not treated "Unfair" just because you don't have a "banner" in the library, heck, you have a whole world practically dedicated to you! I'm sorry if i sound rude but this is true. You have the most powerful spell, judgement, which none but ice could only TRY to shield. So, although you don't get a tower for your school, you get an island and a world dedicated to your school. If you're really going to complain about it then just make a new wizard and do that one first, and then do balance, you'll realize then how lucky you are

If you do remember on lvl 2, Professer Wethersfield says "balance is more powerful than the other schools and harder to master, but with balance you can do great things." So balance being the "most powerful school" means its going to have some disadvantages. But i see what you mean.

GO BALANCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I know! It's ironic, because Balance is the school that's treated so unfairly. What also annoys me is the fact that the colors for the balance School are tan and maroon; however, the closest you can get is brown and red (in that order, they simulate colors close to tan and maroon).

It is unfair because it seems like the producers just threw Balance in and didn't really care where it went. It obviously matters to us that we have no banner, no tower, and no available colors. If you're talking about Krokotopia, no offense but that's silly. If anything, Krokotopia is an elemental world (fire, ice, and storm). The Balance school is just located there because Balance magic originated there. However, most of Krokotopia's story references the elemental schools. By the way, I've played as a theurgist and a diviner. The game was definitely easier.

actually, storm students one: naturally have lower health when you start, and two, all the stuff that boosts your health give smaller boosts than the other schools
