myth to me is the worst school so i would chose balence so you can upgrade your spells with shields and be the master of dueling, plus you can heal yourself with some balence spells and sometimes others

I would say go with Myth. I have both schools and enjoy Myth more.

I agree with myth, no offense to the balance people, I agree with myth even though I'm a balance. I think myth is because they have allot of minions, and they can solo allot. I balance but they have horrible spells, only Judgement and Power Nova are good with colossal in my opinion. But i'm afraid they didn't catch me much with balance.

Death.
Death is probably the best School of Magic when it comes to fighting solo. If you're willing to take the chance of casting all of your traps and blades before you cast your main attacking spell, then you can quite often defeat the enemy in one strike. (Even difficult bosses like Skakis Screaming Moon)

Try them both out and see which one you like.

Personally i dont care much for myth but you might.

Of the two, I prefer Myth. Myth takes some time to get used to, but can be very powerful (just like all schools). Myth was my very first wizard. :)

I do like myth but why waste pips on a minion when you could do a decent attack instead? it doesn't make much sense.

Well, Myth has the advantage of minions at the start, but then later on Myth becomes the master of manipulation in pvp, having stuns, DoT's, powerful minions, pip stealers, minion sacrifices, and so on.

Balance, however, has everything that you need.. Well, almost. Balance has the right debuffs, shields, minions, and you can use so many strategies with it.

It's your choice of which you like, really, just choose one of the schools and get it to level 12, and if you don't like it then delete and work on the other school.

That depends~ if you PvP, pick Myth; if not, go with Balance.

I have both schools and, though I vehemently dislike Balance, the only school I dislike more is Myth. So yeah, that's my 2 cents, but it's up to you.



happy wizarding!

I have a level 45 myth and a level 20 balance. At first Myth is a really fun school to be in. But when you reach dragonspyre it turned dull. Balance is okay, one thing I hate about balance is that they have no convert and it is a pain to go up against balance enemies. Both are excellent at PvP. Myth can break shields and blades with earthquake, and Balance can shield and blade any school (except for themselves!). I would choose Myth though.. It depends if your new to the game because balance is difficult to master.

Easily Balance because with the way Balance is set up, you can become a perfect two part Wizard. For Example, say you choose Balance as main, Great health and Power pips, Judgement and Mana burn (And that spell that removes Auras), and Myth as second school, you will be able to blade your Balance with your Balanceblades, don't have to use training points on Spirit/Elemental Trap/Blades, and of course with Myth Mastery Amulet and Crafted gear, you can achieve Great hieghts as Balance/Myth player. You could even end up using Myth Just as effectively as you could use Balance.

I don't really like Myth.

Balance
- It can help you and others

- You can heal yourself or others

Myth

- You have a lot of minions

- You can get spells that attack twice like Minotaur or Orthrus.

i myself love balance.
if you want more of a lot of minions on your side choose myth.
if you shield and blade like your supposed to choose balance so you don't have to use training points on them.
myth also has a variety of attacks but i myself choose balance.

I am a balance but you should choose myth. Myth is really powerful and awesome. Balance is great and super fun, but myth is a cool school that dominates.

I think balance because my sister is myth and she is not that powerful and when you get judgement you can do lots of damage..... my high score for the most damage for using judgement is 2,558.

i have had both and they both have their weaknesses but when i was questing i could pretty much solo all the quests in the game. Myth has its advantages but it just cant compare to balance.
Balance can blade anyone or trap anyone. It has spiritual and elemental shields and if you train till tower you can even shield against other balance users.
You can also train in life with balance and just shield heal and weakness/black mantle your opponent while your minion attacks.
Or you could train (ironically considering the topic at hand) myth. Combine it with a myth mastery and you can earthquake to deny your opponent any shields or blades.
If you do happen to choose balance i would train in ice first till you get tower shield and then train in either life or myth. Mith would be best considering it would be most useful in pvp (earthquake) and balance has two or more healing spells of its own plus the fairy spell given to you after freeing the fairies in unicorn way.

Dude, I can hit 5,000 damage normally with Temp so I can defeat Azteca Minions and take a chunk of the bosses health out!
