It fizzles a lot to keep fairness between the schools. Storm's strength is high attacks and a lot of powerfulness. But it's weakness is high fizzle rate and low health. Understand? Like, Life's strength is good healing. But it's weakness is low attacks.

Storm is a lesson in patience for me. We fizzle (have low accuracy) and have low health to offset the power of our spells. It does get better as you get to higher levels. I suggest looking for clothes with an accuracy boost.

There are wonderful guides on the web. Wizard101central.com (a fansite) has lots of great info. I bet there is a ton here to. You might try using the search feature.

Damage-wise, Divination is the most powerful school in the game. If you compare Storm to all of the other schools, it's not difficult to see why Storm has such a low accuracy in comparison.

Think about it this way: Life is the weakest school, damage-wise. Would it be fair if Life spells had a 70% chance of working and all Storm attacks had a 90% chance of working?

By the way, there are ways you can raise your spell accuracy. Some outfits can raise accuracy, and there's even a spell in the Storm school that can raise accuracy of Storm spells.

Storm is the most powerful at attacking, so diviners are poor at accuracy. This is so that everything can be fair. None of the other schools fizzle as much, but they also can't do as much damage as storm wizards.

Its not fair. Even though I am not storm in my 2 wizards but I see storm fizzle A LOT. Just because storm is the most powerful school of the elements, doesnt mean it has to fizzle more than any other school. Especially wild bolt. Wild bolt is TEN percent nonfizzle! And they made wild bolt weaker. Speaking of storm fizzling the most, why do they have to make spells fizzle anyway?!?!

Storm has high attack, but low accuracy. all schools have a upside and a downside to it.

Well, the reason storm fizzles so much is exactly because it has the highest-hitting class.

KI tries to balance the schools that way.
Do a little more damage, fizzle a little more.
