Best Wizard101 Schools

The Top Ten

1 Storm

Whether you master storm or get defeated by it is all determined by how you play. The attacks are extremely deadly, but is compensated for with the lowest natural health in the game. At lower levels storm is difficult because of the health disadvantage, but after awhile you get used to having short, quick battles! Storm is pretty much about strategy. You have to defeat your enemy before they can defeat you. In the end storm is a decent school.

Storm, although tough in the early stage of the game due to low health, is a great school as it levels up. High powered spells combined with increased accuracy, high damage, critical, and enough health to get bye is great! Tower shield is a great addition for a storm wizard, and I still use tempest in Azteca to quickly end street battles. The game is pretty well balanced and depends more on the user than the class, but for me, I'd give storm the edge due to their overpowering spells.

It very obviously is the best the attacks are almost twice as good as any other school. People say, "oh storm is the worst school because you have awful heath" well you don't need health because the battles only take like ten seconds because of the attacks! I have an ice wizard friend and it took him twenty minutes to do one battle that took me about two minutes, no lie

Storm, enough' said

2 Death

Death is my favorite because, well, even though it doesn't have the greatest attacking power or is as flashy as the other schools like storm or fire, it is a pretty good school for strategy. Also, like some other people before me has already said, it is easier to solo on death, seeing as I soloed my death character for most of the game and I consider myself not that intense of a gamer. Another favorite part of death is that its steal health attacks can bypass those pesky life and ice absorbs. Whenever bosses spam those shields, I still am able to kill them because of the steal health spells.

I cannot stress this enough. On death, you can heal AND attack. That is very important, because if you are low on health, you don't have to waste pips on healing and just attack as much as you want, which immensely helps people who solo most of the worlds.

Death is also very good for supporting and tanking. My playing style is as a support and a tank, so whenever I have to face ...more

Well, a lot of problems you'll encounter while in PVP matches, is that you can't heal, and attack at the same time, but in the death school you have the unique ability to do exactly that, AMAZING RIGHT!

Also although death dosen't have the strongest attacks, they have a lot of spells that increase damage of other spells. In my opinion, I don't think a school has to be easy to be the best school, because with the right SHIELDS, and the right SKILLS you can bring out the most in a school you wouldn't normally root for.

Another reason I think death is BY FAR the best school is because it represents the unseen, and one of the most indescribable states in the universe. Which is why I'm proud to call myself a DEATH wizard. Oh and since were DEATH we can't here any other opinions, no lol, DEAD serious. *

Death is the best school because its pretty easy to be strategic. Death has a lot buffs and traps especially that can help stack up damage and destroy the opposition. I was level 20 and defeated storm and ice wizards who were around level 80 without using my second school. Death's life sapping spells can bypass absorbs which are one of the main defense tactics for ice. It also has powerful multi attacks like deer knight and scarecrow.

I like death because, the spells hardly fizzle. You can also do good damage, while also healing yourself. - mmarce445

3 Fire

In my opinion I don't think it's the best at all. First of all the way it attacks is very inefficient. It does all the strong damage first and leaving a weak DOT behind. It has low health, defense, and accuracy. These things may not seem important at first but later on in the game your going to need these things to be there. All you need to do is put a fire shield and then that fire shield has gone to waste. Although other school spells may have this problem I still think Fire isn't the best.

Fire is the best! Why? Well fire is the second most powerful our health is good its not really low or high and we get spells earlier in the game for example fire blade..also the DOT's are very useful when your enemies keep shielding and most of our spells hit all so there's no problem handling a group of enemies so fire should be first.

Basically storm, except with less attack and more defense and more accuracy which sounds great to me. Thus making fire my favourite school in the game.

This school is the best because it is decent in everything:
Accuracy, Attack damage etc...

4 Life

With life, you can get the healing spells like satyr and sprite without having to spend training points. You also get rebirth, which is an AMAZING healing card because it casts absorb armor as well. I don't know Michael bout anything past celestia because that's when I last played. With the high health, high accuracy, free healing cards, and decent damage, it's pretty obvious life is the top class of them all!

Life, one of the best schools when it comes to strategy. With a wide variety of heals, playstyle options, and (contrary to popular belief) attacks. Why pixie struggle or spend that time/crowns for that mastery amulet when have those satyrs and heal boosts/life critical automatically in your arsenal? Luminous weaver and certain other life attack spells (if you choose to go that high level). And your healing boost can easily hit 100% if you wish, and still have that high life critical or maybe you prefer solid attack/resist. All in your reach. Heal all spells, absorbs, pip chance, accuracy, health; we rock all tiers of pvp and almost never die in pve (even solo). With the right utility spells/strategy, life has the most potential out of all schools, simply because life is the creation of something new; we don't have limits

As a level 110 life, I can tell you that there is more to life than a lot of people know. Life, in a team, is built for support. It works incredibly well for healing and protection. However, life is a decent soloing school too. With good attacks (and great ones in the high levels) and awesome heals and a good minion at 75. Very well-rounded school. Life is best!

Life has awesome spells and it has a good accuracy plus health. so that's why I like life

5 Balance

Tons of blades and traps that can make your ordinary damage spells absolutely extraordinary! Mid-level health and mid-level damage makes balance seemingly an okay class. But that's not what balance is about. The many traps, shields, and charms make playing as balance completely unique! Even though learning to master balance may be a challenge, once you learn the tricks to balance you're practically unstoppable!

In pvp however, balance's skills are best used in group play. You can buff your team and send devastating attacks to the other team. However, you may find that it works best as a supporting role in the game.

Damage on par with death, in addition to the fact that they have the same accuracy rate, as well as tons of boosts to damage without hindering yourself like death wizards do, Balance is my choice for the best. You've got decent damage and health, and high-ish accuracy. Then if you know how blades and shields work, you can make your damage exceptional, as well as bring up accuracy, and things like power pip chance. However, Balance is not a good starting school, as most starter players focus on the basics and do not take time to prepare, and preparation Is the reason Balance is the best. There is also tons of damage prevention, and no real shield against Balance damage.

Personally balance is one of my favorite schools. You have the second highest health in the game, good accuracy and fair damage. Early on is kinda tough because the spells are crappy for a little bit but once you start getting blades and traps your set. Judgment is given early on and with traps can deal over a thousand. I find using elemental trap elemental blade possibly balance blade and feint then using the hydra spell pretty effective

Also balance is really good at buffing, Yall ready know lore is op. gives you a 35% to fizzle and a 20% weakness. and does tons of damage on 1 enemy. Plus you can find your "real" teacher in krokatopia instead in ravenwood. BALANCE TO OP FOR PVP. the only thing bad about is it doesent have a convert. but u can use spectral, hydra or nested ven chimera. If they do set for u carry shatter! be balance

6 Myth

Myth is the best by far-with high power, minions and accuracy. Amazing versatility and killing potential, myth has some of the coolest looking spells and armor. Go myth

The minions are amazing, and the combination of high health and good attack is on point

Myth has a life lot of stun power, strong minions. With no stun blocks these wizards are good fighters!

The minion support and good accuracy is amazing!

7 Ice

Ice is actually the best school in many things. People underestimate them just because they are so weak. I have beat Warlords many times, and I am ice. With the right things in place ice can be extremely strong just like storm. Ice has the highest natural life, and they have tons of resist more than every other school. Ice attacks such as snow angel is better than fire and storm. Snow angel does very low damage at first but over time can defeat the enemy. Fire dragon does the strong damage first then it does weak DOT, Storm doesn't even have a DOT attack. Ice may not be the best but it is an extremely good school.

Ice is by far the best school. You have the most natural health in the game. Ice wizards have great defense, which means that you don't need to continuously heal yourself after every attack. This also means you can focus your secondary school on attack, but without the sacrifice of health that you would have if you primary school was high in attack. People typically think that ice is a school that's all defense and no offense, but with the right blades and traps ice can be just as powerful as storm.

I'm not a guru on this stuff or anything, although I'm not a complete newbie either. The wizard I'm playing now is ice, and a lot of people say that ice is bad because of weak power. This is true, it does have weak power. A lot of people also say that you can use traps and blades to make it be better than a storm spell. Well if you use traps and blades on a storm spell it gets a LOT better than an ice one. So why is this one the best? Well it has very good defense, and it does have the most health. That said, it's not the best because of that. I got myself some storm secondary school, storm mastery amulet, and now I have the defense of an ice wizard and the damage of a storm wizard (almost, obviously I don't build all damage and acc). So I'm pretty well-rounded and I only ever solo things. by the way I also dipped some points into life for healing, just as a cherry-on-top to it all.

It's all about patience. Ice wizards have the obvious lack of damage but can easily make up for it with the most health in the game, tons of shields, and a variety of AOE spells. ( blizzard(22),frost giant(48), snow angel(68)). If you want to tank and take your time with battles than ice is the best school.

8 Sun

Turn your cards into treasure cards! Well kind of...

You can add damage and accuracy to the spells you already have. I mean who wouldn't like to add a little damage or make sure it has a better chance of working!

Sun doesn't take up a turn! You just enchant the spell and use it, unlike star and moon...

9 Star

Improve your defense or offense without shields and blades! Create a ring around yourself to improve your damage percentage or give yourself extra resistance! What's not to like about this school?

The auras in the star school are pretty useful, but not enough so that I would rank it as the best school on Wizard101. They look cool enough, though.

My favorite part about auras is that they help boost your stats, but the Wizard101 creators balanced this out by making the wizards more vulnerable to the school opposite of their primary school, in those specialized auras, which I appreciate. Also, they only last four rounds.

10 Shadow


Shadow has to be trained near the end of the game. Level 90-100 in khrysalis. It helps a lot, though, in battles in khrysalis and polaris.

I did not know there was a Shadows class! O_O I wish I could find it!

The Contenders

11 Moon

Moon school is just horrible and useless. By the way, ABSOLUTELY NONE of the schools below this actually exist. There are only 11 schools in the game. Balance, life, myth, death, storm, fire, and ice are the 7 main ones chosen at the beginning of the game. Later, starting in Celestia, you can train sun, star, and moon. Starting in Khrysalis, you can train shadow.

Using moon spells you can polymorph and find out what it's like to have a different school's spells! This however is kind of an unknown school since you can't start training it until like level 50.

Why not top five? One of the best death should be first
