I don't think death is good on the arena(sry)but life is what i think is better it almost never fizzles and has healing spells.

I have both and i like life because it is better for helping and can solo VERY well plus enemies don't use life shields (And I have been playing for a few years now so don't argue with me.) the only life shield they use is the shields balance enemies use which isn't that common and its only half off and centaur is stronger than enemy death spell, deeath's strongest is 510 max and life's is 595 max. And death's only advantage on life is doom and gloom which can be ridded if you add sanctuary like me.

LIFE LIFE LIFE LIFE LIFE LIFE LIFE LIFE LIFE LIFE LIFE LIFE LIFE!

Let me tell you why. First off, you have an absorb, 400 hit points all sucked up and crushed into the nuber 0. Even with the most powerful spell, you have little damage done to you. Second, you can heal. With the most little pips, a true life can heal greatly. Also, you get some awesome stuff. Bye!

i prefer to solo, so this may make me biased, but i definitely prefer life. with all of the healing spells, it's easy to keep oneself afloat during quests when you're alone. of course, it also takes forever, since you spend so much time just trying to stay alive. lol

Personally Death because your talking all that stuff about life heals, but so does Death!! :x I mean sure, it's not THAT powerful, but it has more fighting spells. Plus, most of them turn right around and heal you. :| :|

That depends on your fighting style. For soloing, Death is better, because it only heals you and does damage. For group play, Life is better, because you can heal anyone. Life has a bigger heal per pip, and a higher damage spell, but Death spells do damage and heal, and Death has the most traps and blades. Really, it up to you to decide. ~Christopher Titanbringer, Level 35 Balance Wizard

Death wit life as secondary is the best way to go. Especially when you hit lvl 48 and get scarecrow. That in my opinion is the best spell in the game!!!

choose death! some of the death spells your hurting the opponent AND healing yourself at the saame time! plus all thoose traps and blades death NEEDS them or death would be the most suckiest school in the game but really choose death!

( only reason i say is cause since i'm death i beat the tower of war on the first time solo! )

People keep copying threads. Like when mounts came out there were like 5 (make your own mount) threads. And now the author is copying the same thread about life or death. Not cool dude :? :(

Ok death may have some weak spells but that's the whole point. Death wizards have to stategey's to use boosts to make our spell stronger i once made my skeletel pirate do 1,095 and i finished the boss in one hit.And death has the awsome death incarnet that summuns a minion depending on pips does life get to someone a wraith.the answer is no.

Umm, no, death has 4 spells that give you health NOT 2. By the time you set traps you can easily heal over 2,000. With friends helping out I have healed much more. It depends who you are asking. Everyone is going to have their own opinion.

AAJS- if you don't think death is good in the arena- let's have a duel :)-

you make a good point but death is the only one who can go through an absorb. for example: the life uses rebirth all death has to do is scarecrow and they are still hurt. Gabriel LifeHunter 50 Death 8)

Not only do I think Death is the better school, but I also must say Life is the hardest school. Yes, Life is the only school based on teaching healing spells, but that's also its weakness. Most Life spells are healing spells and the attack spells aren't great; the only powerful one so far is Centaur (but I'm sure all the Theurgists mentioned that already), but that could change with the new spells being added in the next update. Anyway, soloing in Life is extremely hard in my opinion; especially when fighting Life monsters because they cast Absorbs, Weaknesses, and Death Shields (my secondary is Death) like they're gonna rot. I learned this the hard way in Krokotopia; unfortunately, it only gets harder.

On the other hand, Death is pretty average, but what makes it extraordinary is its range of spell types. It has many kinds of spells: regular attack spells (Banshee), DOT spells (Poison), AAH spells (Vampire), and even its own version of Weakness and Hex (Plague* and Curse respectively). My favorite spell would be its AOE spell, Scarecrow, which saps 400+ HP from all enemies and gives half to the caster. I haven't played as a Necromancer for long, but it's definitely a lot easier than it was fighting as a Theurgist.

Hopefully my comment has been of help to you.

Just in case you didn't know:
DOT- Damage Over Time (attacks enemy over 3 turns)
AAH- Attack and Heal (attacks enemy and heals caster)
AOE- Area of Effect (attacks all enemies)
*Plague is also an AOE spell

Death! They can attack and heal at the same time whereas life (as far as i know) have to do them seperately.
