New School: Water

Ok, so there is ice, life, fire, storm, myth, death, and balance schools so it just seems right to have a water school. Perhaps, water school could be the opposite school to balance, then balance could have a prism. It would be very cool to have a spell with something that looks like Poseidon or something. There could be starfish, mermaid, and seahorse pets! Just an idea.

Water would pretty much just be storm. Also, water isn't really a logical opposite to balance, and balance doesn't have a prism for a reason. Poseidon in my mind looks pretty much like storm lord. There is already a starfish pet and a seahorse mount, and personally Kingsisle needs to stay away from humanoid pets (and shouldn't even consider riding on humanoids). The current seven schools is perfect for covering pretty much every area of the game.

That's a bit too much like storm.

Wouldn't it be a copy of the Storm School?

Just saying, Storm has Tempest, Kraken, most of them do with water.

Water is part of both Ice and Storm. And there is a starfish pet already, and a seahorse mount.
Sorry...

So, um, storm.

Because triton looks like Poseidon. There's already a starfish pet, it's ice. And there's already a seahorse mount and a mermaid spell.

Balance doesn't need any more trouble than it already has. :(

No thanks.

If someone wanted to be water, but they are like level 80, they can't go back. Unless they make a new person, and start over.

Well we already have storm which has to do a lot with water ( half of the spells are aquatic like sharks,kraken, triton, ect.)
As for being weak to balance... I don't see how it makes sense

sorry to burst your bubble, but have you heard of storm? Poseidon? Triton is similar enough that it would get very complicated. and also i believe kingsisle wants to keep their own deities rather than real ones. i believe that water would just be too redundant with storm around and i don't think it would make much sense to have another balance boost :/

It sounds like an interesting concept, however when you say a Poseidon spell i think of the storm spell Triton. There are also already starfish pets that can be bought in Celestia along with other pets like a sea turtle if i'm correct, its been a long time since i did Celestia. Aside from those i think some already mentioned water school ideas from other threads could be combined with these into a water school.

Storm is Water and technically so is Ice.

There are Starfish and SeaDragon pets.

Balance does not have an opposite since it is of all schools.

Sorry, but this idea is really bad. For one, it takes a lot of work, time, and money to make another school. Second, it wouldn`t be fair to those who made 5 wizards in October 2008 to have to delete a Promethean if they wanted a Water wizard. And third, the entire point of Balance is to have no opposite.

Hey guys, it's an idea forum, no need to be rude. Thank you to the one person who was the least bit polite on these replies.

When someone makes fun of your ideas, think about how you've done it too, and, next time, try being nice. Thanks.

As many others have said, this is way too much like storm. Strom has sirens, leviathan, shark, kraken, triton, tempest, water elemental, and that's it for water spells. So............ Plus siren pet exists now and it's storm.

No one was making fun of your idea or being rude. We were simply stating our opinions, and if you dislike them, that is no reason to overreact. Besides, there have been many threads about new schools, many posters who have been insulted about other players` opinions about the "School of Chaos", and many ideas for new schools that have never been added to the game. Also, I think many will agree that an opposite for Balance does not fit in well with the school of balance or the game. However, every 5 main worlds, there has been an addition of schools to spend our training points on, counting the original 7. Water could possibly be added to a number of others for new 3rd arc spells.

Onetime I thought of that, but storm is basically water so if they made a water school it would be too much like storm. As for being opposite to balance, I don't think that would be the best idea because that is one of their best advantages.

Sorry, but Storm is pretty much water. Or at least it relates. Anyway it would take allot of time and effort for KingsIsle to put in another school.

Good idea, but i do not agree. I'm already in that school- its called Storm!

Storm titans ruled over the water. Water would be a copy of storm. Sorry, but i dont think so.

Woot yeah GO STORM! High five, fellow storm wizards! I like your idea though about a water school, but storm already covers that. Sorry.
