I had the best time playing Balance. Life is my second fave, and Fire is my third fave. All the schools have good features and not-so-good features, so I would say just close your eyes and pick one. You can't go wrong. But Balance really is the best, especially if you do Life for second schooling.
all depends what you enjoy playing, all classes are fairly well balanced and every major addition that is added to the game makes people wonder which school is going to become stronger than the rest... this means choosing a school cause it is strong now may not make it strong after the next addition so you should play what you think you will personally enjoy the most
I suggest starting a few and then continuing with the one or ones you enjoy the most.
hi fellow players of wizard101 i need help picking wich one i should choose i can decide its driving me crazy so if you could put out sugestions that would be great thanks :D
the best advice i'd give is to take the test at the beginning and let the game decide which school best fits your personality. this will work better than getting 7 different answers from people who are convinced that their favorite school is the best (or worst, in some cases). -elijah darkthorn, legendary myth (the worst of the schools :) )
What is your school right now? I've played all seven schools but my fave was life. She's the only legendary that I have right now. I just got my death up to DS yesterday. My myth is in Marleybone. My balance is in Kroktopia. My storm, fire, and ice wizards are still in Wizard City.
If this is your first character, then I suggest you choose Death. They are a very hardy class, healing while attacking, and are the best for completing quests without a team behind you. Playing Death will give you a good working knowledge of the game, the other schools, and a foundation to build your next character upon.
