"How can I continue being in a school that I hate.
I have been playing wizard101 since last year and I don’t have one single grandmaster and I see that many people have a lot like MiltonTS and others that I have seen on wizard101central. I Feel like a failure and a loser for not having one GM. I love the storm school the spells are powerful and I want a powerful school , but I hate storm because of the low health and accuracy, and I hate when I lose to 135 health creatures in Unicorn Way.
I tried being life and ice and realize I only choose the school because they can be my security blanket ( life can heal and ice has tower and ice armor and can help me to not be defeated and feel like a loser.
Now when I fail I delete my wizard and create a whole new account and I have over 15 accounts ( some are old and some are new).
I Love Storm and I Hate Storm and I don’t think I can be in a school that gets defeated easily and I don’t know what to do.
How can I be in a school that I hate and love ?
I need your advice.
Here's the best advice I can give to you: If you're struggling, then team up with a life wizard.
The second best advice I can give you: With Storm wizards, +accuracy% items are going to be a better choice than +damage% items when selecting gear.
The third best advice is go ice to tower shield and go life to satyr for your secondaries. It sounds like you like the life saving skills of both of those classes, so use those to your advantage then! You can be a storm wizard and save your own behind.
Fourthly, you'll get some people who will say that the +10% accuracy boost to storm spells from Lightning strike is no good, but I don't subscribe to that, it's a great spell. (and if you team up with a Life Wizard, perhaps you won't have to cast that spell and instead they'll cast their +10% accuracy Guidance spell on you. I used to have Amber cast Guidance on Kyle all the time. Sometimes I'd even double up! Guidance + Lightning Strike).
Fifth, as for dying on Unicorn Way, don't worry, it happens. I've played both a storm wizard and an ice wizard up to GM. Comparing the two, I have to say that ice was more of a challenge than storm. The low damage output was killing me at first.
It's kind of funny, sometimes I think Wizard City is harder than any of the other worlds. Mobs are casting 1 and 2 pip spells over and over at you when you have low life to begin with. It's just a constant barrage unlike some of the other worlds where you have a round or two to build a defense, and under eighth level you're lacking shields. It can be especially brutal if you're the first in a circle, almost ready to finish your fight, and two or three more wizards join in. If you heal up, it's very easy to grab the attention of the new mobs and then it can mean defeat.
In other words, I think the game actually gets easier until you hit Dragonspyre (which now they've gimped a bit). Meh. I digress. (If you can suffer through Wizard City, I think you'll like Storm a bit better.)
Sixth, I mentioned those shield spells above . . . don't forget those shield spells! If you're going ice to tower shield, you'll also be picking up Volcanic Shield along the way. That's a great one. You'll also have thermic shield at level 8 from your class too.
Seventh, please don't compare yourself to MiltonTS. haha. That's a little unfair. Milton is an expert on leveling a wizard and is therefore the extreme example. I know of a few wizards who have been playing since beta and haven't hit Grandmaster yet because they like to take things slow and really get to know the particulars of the game. Matthew from Wikia is a good example of that. He's helping the community through information gathering. Truly noble in his own right, and AFAIK not one GM (he might be getting close now). But, it's by his own rules. So, please, try not to compare yourself to the extremes.
You know, there's a weird thing that happens when a person plays an MMO where they start to feel respected and powerful as they climb to the top. You've got to realize that this is all an illusion. A very strong illusion when you're playing the game, but an illusion nonetheless. When you turn off the computer, I hope you realize what a strong and powerful person you are in the real world and don't need to be a GM to feel awesome about yourself. If not, you may need to work on that first. Not saying that you do (since I really don't know you), it's just . . . if you're awesome in real life, it doesn't matter what you're like in game. You're just here to have fun. Enjoy the challenges!
Lastly, 15 accounts? You sound like maybe you're becoming an expert on Wizard City. :-) Defeat happens. This isn't like DiabloII hardcore rules or anything. Just focus on one and take the good with the bad. There would be a lot less GM's if we all deleted our characters upon defeat. I don't think I'd have a single GM. ;-)
I'm sure my readers will have more insights on this one. To the comments with you!
