The fight to get into Dragonspyre (Professor Cyrus Drake) is nearly impossible for Storm Wizards. He should not know the Storm Shield Spell. This spell makes it way to near impossible. The fight goes like this: I save up for Triton; no shield. I get to Triton. No shield. I cast Triton. Shield. It's like the game AI is absolutely buffed on this boss monster. Also, his personal attack where he hurls beams of light at your face for two pips, is much too overpowered.
Thanks

The whole point of Cyrus' challenge is to determine if you are ready for the trials of Dragonspyre. If you cannot defeat Cyrus, you are not ready for the tougher creatures of Dragonspyre.

Spend some time in Grizzleheim to gain some more experience and get yourself some better equipment. Work on your deck to get the most out of your spells.

Heh, I didn't have any trouble with him. I defeated him with just using Stormzilla, and heals. Besides, I defeated him with one try and I am a storm wizard. I don't see the difficulty of defeating him.

He is not that difficult. You should have wands in your deck to 'break' the shields. Or use a non-storm spell.
He's meant to be a challenge but can easily be defeated with proper planning.

Cyrus Drake is pretty easy if you side a bit... I recommend Level 50 at least? ( Don't go too high, trust me. At tops, like 55. )
Now, if you're storm.. Um thats a different Story.
Storm wizard: Elemental Blade
Cyrus: Random spell
Storm wizard: Elemental Trap
Cyrus: Random Spell
Storm Wizard: Balanceblade
Cyrus: Random Spell
Storm Wizard: Dragonblade
Cyrus: Random spell
Storm Wizard: Feint
Cyrus: Random Spell
Storm Wizard: Charm
Cyrus: Storm shield
Yeah, that would kinda be annoying. LOL

This guy was easy for me…well….i am a storm…. (i have no idea why you other storm wizards are having problems with this)

Get some storm tc and use a storm wand. You wont need boosts because storm boosts to myth. use the wand spells when faced with a storm shield.

Cyrus is less than half the threat malistare is…..

If you can't defeat cyrus, you won't be able to defeat any monsters in DS. Its a fact. Like Lydia Greyrose said, its a test of strength.

Practice and try, try again!

Dont give up! :)

Ps. level 40 is the ideal time to do this quest (Not 50 to 55! thats Cl!) I did it at 38.

You Storms think Cyrus is hard? Try being a Myth wizard, he only has 90% resist towards all myth spells.

It's terribly Troubling, And long. Took me five tries too actually kill him off.

Probably the best tactic is too keep chipping away at him, I really can't specify much more.

Use your prism, that's what you have it for. And your secondary school. You will need these strategies later on.

my ice wizard beat him with like 3 colossus and then a wyvern to finish, but my thaumaturgge had about 2800 hp, had 5 elementals, ice traps and blades, and impressive equipment. my fire wiz hd trouble beating him, so ice is (i think) the easiest to kill him off

Ice is 'easier' due to high health.
Death was a breeze.
Ice was easy.
Myth, well that one took a bit longer. :)

Cyrus isnt meant to be hard- hes just preparing you for dragonsypre.. so if you cant beat him... you wont have fun in dragonsypre at all!!!!! ................................................................ I've heard azteca is no joke at all, its hard, sometimes brutal, and very difficult at points.

Battle him a few times so you can know his strategy and use your best spells and bring three friends with you that may destroy his shields for you.

Cyrus was soo easy for me. I'm a storm wizard and I must have got lucky. He didn't use shields for me at all

I personally think that beating Cyrus is cake-walk, just pack pierce and a leviathan from the bazaar and then kill him.

Cyrus is not too hard. The bosses in this game are NEVER too hard. You are just too easy. To prevent yourself from being too easy, stack up on good cards. wear "battle gear" (clothes that help you the most") Oh, and if Cyrus uses so many storm shields, why don't you use many traps, blades and good stuff like that. These things will help you.

If you want to learn ALL about Cyrus Drake and ways to prevent being defeated by him, go to www.wizard101central.com/wiki/Creature:Cyrus_Drake
This will help you A LOT. Please tell me if this helped or not!
