What do you think is better, Life or Myth?. I think with Myth you can summon minnons and with Life you can cure yourself.

I like both but i heard that you get harder quests for life but here are some pros and cons:

MYTH

Pros
-Many good minions
-double attacks to get past one shield
-can get around shields with pierce and earthquake

Cons
Attacks somewhat weak
somewhat low power pip chance
a little below average accouracy

LIFE

Pros
-Heal a lot
-Great health
-Amazing accuracy
-Good power pip chance

Cons
Mainly healing spells, occasional attacks
No move that attacks all
Strongest move centaur, however does only around 500-600 damage
Get blade at a late lvl
Must spend one training point to get life trap

Life - if you are a better helper (as in healer) than an attacker.

Myth - if you enjoy working solo (including 1v1) with the help of a minion, and if you are a better attacker than a helper (as in healer).

Spending a training point for Life Trap? I got my Life Trap free from the trainer in Colossus Blvd. I did use a training point for Spirit Trap from Niles at the Krokosphinx.

Life also has more health than myth--not that I think one is better than the other. Whether someone likes one school better than another is determined by their playing style.

Myth is also a challenge, getting high damage requires you to use 2 traps on the multi-attack spells. Don't use hydra as a balance excuse cause you have the triple trap and blade.(Forgot it's name.)

Well i have a grand Life and I hate it. I constantly get mobbed by people asking for help and it hard to keep up. Though the high health is nice The attacks are to weak. I mean a level third ty three spell is your best attack which can be strong with blades but still. I also have a Adept myth and I have to say i love it. The minions are actually quite helpful. But it's your choice. Thanks for reading this long and pointless post :D

You don't have to use 2 traps for your double hit spells to do more damage. Just use Time of Legend. It's the global field spell that works as a constant trap. Just use that and you wont have to waste your time trapping. I never trap because of Time of Legend. Myth wizards don't need traps unless they are going to ninja pig. In which case I would let my cyclops or troll minion trap for me.

Just blade and time of legend. Forget the myth trap.

The pro about the blade is that it does 40% instead of 35%!

A con about earthquake is that it also kills your traps and and stuff like weakness! But my favorite is life because I'm not that big on minions, and also that second attack thing is that it gets around the traps too. Life can also heal your self so you can probably last longer than most schools!

Well, it realy depends if you want to solo the game or play support. I have a lvl 42 life wizard and I liked it in the lower levels of the game because my dad and my sister played with me. Now, though, my family doesn't play and I find it harder because life doesn't have that many damage cards. :(

Here's somethings to look into for your School of choice.

Do you like to spend time healing others?
Do you like attacking things?

If like attacking things, I think you would want to pick Myth, or any other that requires more attacking then healing. If you like healing then go life, obviously.

Some people say Myth is kinda like Balance. " It takes a Nak to use them before you grow bored with them.

I choose Myth cuz that was my first character. This is my Venn Diagram though:

Myth:
Pros:
Good minions (except for minotaur that one is self-absorbed)
Very powerful
Orthrus quest is awesome becuz its sort of funny and I do homework
Cons:
Sort of weak
Not a lot of health
Earthquake destroys traps

Weirdly Life is my second character

Life:
Pros:
Good at healing
Good at fighting alone
Useful skills
Cons:
Not a lot of attacks
Aslo sort of weak
Not very defended

Life is very good a school I am a Grandmaster Life myself. Sometimes I do wish Life had bigger attacks or I would have taken storm as second but i got some tips for Life wizards that use centaur as the big attack and seperate tips for Life wizards with Storm for second.
Centaur as attack:
1- Must be at least level 40 or higher or have done at least the Zeke quests up to Mooshu for this to work: First get any deck that has at least 4 Life copies.
2- Use your training points for Death School up to Feint, the Spirit Blade and Trap from Niles, the Balance Tree in the Krokosphinx Isle and Reshuffle from the secret trainer in Colossus Boulevard in a house in a tunnel near Mindy Pixiecrown NOTE: Leave reshuffle for the last spell so you get the more important ones first.
3-First stack up at least 2 of each type of blade or trap you got (Life Blade, Life Trap, Feint, Spirit Trap, Spirit Blade).
4- Then stack up 2 or 3 Centaur on deck and put on the Centaur amulet or the Grandmaster Life robe Malistaire's Purgatory Coat to have an amplified Centaur.
5- And finally add your best heals. If you are level 48 or higher and have every Life Spell put Rebirth, Satyr and Dryad.
Using Storm as second.
1- Must be level 50 and have done all of Zeke's quests for this to work: First get a big deck.
2- Use your training points for all of Halston Baelstrom's spells, then Dworgyn's spells up to Feint, then the spells from Niles depend: if you use Storm as a supporter but not primary attack then get Spirit Blade and Trap but if you use Storm as the primary attack then get Spirit and Elemental Blade.
3- First stack up all your buffs at least 2 or 3 copies of each
4- Then stack Centaur and Stormzilla at least 2 or 3 copies of each, it is also useful to have your Grandmaster Life gear at least the robe to have the bigger Centaur,
5- And finally stack up some heals, scroll up to see what I recomend.

Though myth is very good with attacks and minions i gotta go with life. Life lasts longer and has absorb....though the attacks are weak. Also they are pretty good in pvp being the source of all health in your team. LIFE IS THE WAY TO GO :D

Well, the myth pip chance is actually as same as the elemental schools. The only schools that have a huge power pip chance are death, life and balance I think. Rest are 70% like myth at grand. And at legendary, I think it is 82.

I say myth cause if you can use one right, you can cause of SERIOUS damage! And our minions heal us, keep us alive, buff us, and drag attention off of us(minotaur minion). Also, I see some people work so hard for the right blades, right when they about to launch a one hit kill, I earthquake! I do not even bother to weakness unless he got no blades or something like that. MYTH ALL THE WAY!
