Fire, then life, but I still have respect with most other schools *cough* *cough* storm *cough* *cough* As they all have the chance for awe inspiring strategy *cough* *cough* except for storm, no strategy involved *cough* *cough*
Death and life. :P Reasons why: Death was the school picked for me. ( Plus Dracula was a necromancer ) Life Heals. Plus with life I've been dueling some death monsters and life gives the death shield and the myth shield. They go good together. Who knew!?
Personally, my favorite is fire, but that is only because that was my original and best character (I have been playing Wizard101 since 2008). However, all the schools are definitely equal except for ice. I think they are overpowered but really all classes are equal.
I love life. But all of the schools are epic(:! i love life cause you can heal yourself and others, hehe i love helping people :D Also life is kind of said as a weak school but the new spell Gnome is mighty powerful cause usually it makes the enemy close to death and they cant heal ANYWAYS LIFE 4 THE WIN
Storm! Heck, I've pretty much soloed on my Storm wizard. If you people say it can't be done, you don't have the patience or the right strategy, because in every fight I have come out with over 200 health.
It is possible to solo on a Storm, just ask Scarlet Nightdreamer, Legendary Diviner
