Dunno if anybody has said this yet, but each school has its own pros and cons. For example:
Ice- Pros: High Health. Cons: Weaker Attacks.
Fire, Storm- Pros: Powerful Attacks. Cons: Lower Accuracy.
Life- Pros: Can Heal Others. Cons: Attacks? (Not sure, only thing I can think of. Maybe you can switch it out with lower health...)
Death- I have NO idea, probably similar to Fire & Storm. Same with Myth.
Balance- Pros: Many spells that can change the rules of the battle (shields, blades, traps, ect.), Attacks that can be different elements. Cons: Attacks that do damage with multiple schools are weaker.

Yeah, I know the list got worse as it went on, I really only know the elemental Pros/Cons, mainly due to the fact my main wizard is ice.

As to answer the "Which is best school" question, based off of this list, it's a matter of preference.

EDIT: Ok, I've realized that a few schools (Like Death, Balance, and Myth) are mainly balanced, maybe with bad fizzling odds or lower health at some point. But still, the "best school" is whichever one suits your playstyle.

I am Balance, but I think Storm is the most powerful. I compared all of the schools and Storm is the strongest, also they have the strongest treasure cards. you figure you cannot stop a storm or destory it. you can melt ice with fire, put out fire with ice, prove a myth wrong, make the balance unbalanced, and destroy life.
i didnt name death, is because that is the second strongest, very close with storm.
fire is third is the rank
ice fourth.
i always thought ice would be the strongest. i wanted it to be because it is so beautiful the school and the house, etc.
now i am so intrigued with the whole storm school. they have cool colours too and awesome spells.


Storm is the most powerfull


Honestly? It makes no difference to me. YOu can have one school and still train in another one or learn some spells from many schools. Right now I have a Pyromancer that is full fire and also has healing spells. It makes it easier for me because I have the pan now. I can heal myself with the pan or anyone in the group. maybe only one at a time but if I am in a battle and someone is the lead fighter I can heal them when needed. Pan heals up to 860. true I can't get some of the spells a healer has as they are special spells but I have some that are pretty significant. And they definitely come in handy when I fight alone and there is no healer about.

no such thing as best school. you have to remember some people actually take that personality quiz and thats how they are paired with that school. so if you insult ice you insult my personality!

Hehe I love these posts!

Okay, here are my opinions
(Alphabetical)

Balance- Excellent at powering one's deffences and offences, great power in Judgement.
Death- Great head on damage, fair healing drains.
Fire- Great damage, high fizzle rate.
Ice- Great deffences, poor offences.
Life- Excellent at healing themselves and others, very poor offences.
Myth- Well rounded, plenty of minions.
Storm- Excellent offences, poor deffences. Highest fizzle rate.

Remember these are my opinions, I don't need you to question them.

I think that the combination between Storm and Life is completely strong. Storm doesn't have any heals, and Life doesn't have the best attacks. Combine those and you have a powerful, long lasting wizard.

OK everyone here is my opinion...

1. Fire
2. Balance
3. Life
4. Death
5. Ice
6. Storm

What? O, your wondering about Myth? Well, it is so awesome that it doesnt belong on a list that is so low on the "Good Scale"
So, all in all, get it right!

Myth- lvl 49 -Dont fight the truth!

All schools are equal, no school is the best.


I so agree. Each school has it's advantages and disadvantages. I love the spells Theurgists get as far a attack and healing the only down side is that unlike the Necromancers they can not attack and heal at the same time. I myself am a Theurgist and I love going to the school of life. My dear sister is a Necromancer and loves being as such. The most important thing to remember is that there is no better school, they are all equal in their own rights.

Honestly you put myth at the bottom
Myth is the best because if you have shields you can forget about them

1 balance
2 storm
3 myth
4 fire
5 death
6 ice
7 life

Life even though you can heal yourself it won't matter because then you can never attack
Balance you can boost your secondary and primary school to do a lot of damage

Wolf Bane lvl43 balance
Wolf Bane lvl18 storm
