I totally recommend Balance, mostly because that school allows you to use all the good things about the other schools and put them all together. You will still be able to use Death spells and lots of other cool ones, too. So, I recommend Balance. :D

Why do you want to make a new wizard? Did you not like Ice?

What do you like/dislike about your Ice wizard? Maybe that will help you decide between Death or Balance.

Well i love ice but i'm not sure if i and my wizard can take the not very strong powers and besides i'm trying to dedise on what's next 4 me.
Her secondaredy is fire! Sure awesome powers but i'm in kroc right now and it's going slow,Temple of fire. When my old death wizard was here she could do quest so fast i thought i had quest i did a month a go! I deleted her and i don't no why! Same with my balence wizard. Kroc is hard so that's what i mean what would be best for kroc. DEATH or BALENCE?
Oh and whatever the school of focus is then the other will be the secondaredy school for her. Aka:q1: i miss my old 1s. q2:i love ice!
q3:i like ice for the heath reasons and i dislike ice because of the unstrong
spells. I think sometimes i must start over again. Well RoloX2 what do you like and dislike about your class? Each has pro and cons. Ture fact.
Ice has good heath but bad spells compared to fire.
The sun bird's max dmg is 355 to ice's evilsnowman 300 max dmg both are a pip cost of 3 but as you can see fire is stronger! BUT i've seen fire fizzle ALOT more than ice. Happy now RoloX2? Get what i'm saying?

Storm - Balance - Myth

Why? Storm has strongest attacks, Balance has the buffs and traps,
Myth a few reasons; 1. it is Deaths oppesit 2. It has minions to help you
3. Because Cyrus Drake & Malistair are bros. and what better way to understand the enemy than from his own ken (spelling).

All though choosing Death for a third school would be good too.
for the extra healing + damage, one really can't beat that.

Death wizards can do a ton of raw damage, most balence spells do a little less.

Balance is not the easiest of schools to manage. I personally love Balance since it's a great support and damage role but death is great for big damage.

I would give both a try and see which fits you the best.

um, death's oppesit is life! hello! and it's beween death and balence no strom no myth sorry but at laest i narrowed it down!
why i left it to that?
fire: sick of it
ice: to week :P
strom: unheathy and fizzles way 2 much
myth: all you get is minons!
life: all you do is heel!
death: drains heath and are strong
balence: it's all the classes who won't want that?!
tally: balence:2 death:1
Cocoaluver: thanks for giving me a straight answer!

Death is best cause you cant get buffs and traps like balance ,but balance gets more of that. Anyways if you put a most off your buffs and traps and use wraith or vampire you can get a hard hit and a lot of health. So, I recommend death.

DEATH! DEATH! DEATH! I have a lvl 40 necromancer and it is soooo cool! when you get in to the higher lvls with death it is sooo worth being a death wizard. and the best part is the spells hurt the bad guys, and heals the good guys! :D so, say you are low on hp, and so it the guy you are fighting, so you can't decide what to do, heal, and try to get him next round, or try to kill him now, but the spell might fizzle. so death does both at once :D

what the heck do you expect from a balance wizard like me? BALANCE DOH!
this is peach the ferret. the manga series rocks cause it has ferrets but the third book is really bad. and the characters personalities don't go very deep. :( what in the spiral were they thinking!

Why not both?

Might I suggest Balance first, as the boost from the blades is hard to beat plus the added shields is never a bad idea, Balance gets all school shields, and the added extras are always a welcome addition to any deck.

Balance Blade 25% damage
BladeStorm 20% damage
Spirit Traps 25% damage Life Myth Death
Elemental Traps 25% damage Fire Ice Storm
Spirit Blades 35% damage Life Myth Death
Elemental Blades 35% damage Fire Ice Storm
Hex 25% damage Balances Generic Trap

This is just on the Balance side of things, not even mentioning the added benefit of 50% off for the two Balance shields, Elemental and Spiritual, which covers all schools.

Death greatest asset to this is of course the Feint

Feint 70% outgoing and 30% incoming

Now, all things considered, 25% + 20% + 25% + 35% + 25% + 70% equals one massive hit.

Add to this the fact that after you receive Feint, you will then have enough points to get the Tower shield from Ice and the added Volcanic Shield which gives 70% off for storm and fire hits plus, the Dream Shield of Death which gives you 70% off for life and myth.

Some then go to Life school and go all the way up to Satyr with that afterwards. Giving them the ability to heal others as well as themselves. Death will do this as well with the Vampire and Ghoul. Not as high however the benefits are there.

So again I ask, why not both schools? Combine the best of both into one awesome powerhouse of a Wizard and you will have no problems getting through the game. I think that you too will be pleasantly surprised by the results in the arena as well. Ally, as we call the Judgement card because she says "Ally Oops!", before striking the scales, is all but unstoppable. Tower and absorbs, Life and Ice school both have them, aside, I have personally done in excess of 5000 damage points in the arena. Not impressed? I wasn't trying when I did it, and no I was not trying to impress you lol. So, if you are looking, and can't decide, why not take a chance and try them both.

I like death, because well, it's my school! (wolf howls somewhere distant)
I think death has cool spells This is just what I think of death and balance MY OPINION:

Death: 10000000000000000000000000000000000 (zillion more zeroes)

Balance: 400


I really recommend death, even though Balance might have shields against all the elemental schools or the spiritual, I just like death.
