    I would be inclined to agree, but I think that would make things unbalanced. Let’s take Fire Kraken Mutate for example

    • Interesting!

    • I’ll do you one better. What if you didn’t have to buy Mutate spells at all, but rather only needed the corresponding spells to train the mutated ones? For example, if I had Sprite trained, I could spend a Training Point on Midnight Sprite, no Enchant required!

        Another example would be Polar Swarm (3 pips), which would jump up to 123+508=631 vs Monstrous Frostbite (5 pips) at 158+586=744. I think safe implications can be drawn here

    • Well, what if, since the spell would already have that golden color scheme all Sun Spells had, it COULDN’T be enchanted?

    Personally, I believe the game would end…….
    I’m probably exaggerating, but the heaviest PvPers are the ones who invest the most money into the game, with pet snacks and Crown gear and whatnot, as well as regular memberships to PvP. Players would riot if PvP was taken out

    • i think it should be changed in a way were its actually different from stormzilla in a noticeable way some things i was thinking could be such as
      1. lower the damage to 570 and make it a stun after affect
      2. lower the damage to 600 and have a weakness after affect
      3. lower damage to 630 and have it break one positive charm
      4. lower the damage to 510 and a -40% accuracy to opponent

    • Personally I think Catalan should be a DoT, but the majority of the damage is in the base, about 600 or so, and another 150 over time to primarily keep shields off. Storm isn’t much of a DoT School, more of a single hit school, and this would be a perfect solution. It’s technically a DoT, but not a majority damage DoT.

    • @William DawnCloud – a single hit, 5 pip stun would be an amazing tool for Storm. This would have lots of uses for both 1v1 and team.

    • My all-time favorite is a spell which I can never remember the name of… The aura popper thing? I LOOOOVE it in PvE 🙂

      But yeah, every school has a few spells I really like, so it is hard to choose 🙂

    • My fav is and will always be METEOR!!! although its closely followed by a 1 pip tempest lol

    • For me, i’d say keeper of the flame. Honestly is surprises me this guy rarely takes to the skies in the arena. Barely anyone uses him. Even more surprising is the amount of people using ninja pigs. As far as lore spells go, must chuck the pure damage spells, and use the effect ones. With myth it’s backwards and i just don’t get it. With colossal, it’s 600 damage plus a 25% myth trap! What’s not to love. Myth should be spamming keeper till the cows come home but they aren’t. Besides it’s wonderful use, i think it just looks awesome. 😀

    • Insane Bolt gotta be my favorite cause it gotta the highest damage in damage to pip ratio in the entire game with 100% accuracy. It’s crazy >:D

      As for Fire, I LOVE the Krampus animation, it’s soooo beast…literally!

    yea, I know. Pet hatching is so annoying, though. Nothing like the rage I feel when I spend 30,000 gold, and wait 20 hours, just to find out that, since my pet has only 1 Epic talent instead of 3 and a pile of uncommon talents, they’re not worth training

  • Hey guys. I’m back. If you could call this an update, then I guess this is one.

    Recap: My “new” Balance, Alexander Battleblade is a Level 38. I like to think of him as part of an alternate timeline that would be if my other Balance, Alexander Earthbane, who is level 90, took to ranked at the magus level. I suck at high level PvP, so I’m not going there. Battleblade uses the full Zeus gear from Mount Olympus, which is beastly gear, except that it doesn’t exactly turn me into a tank. My resist is horrible. After getting another Starfish without Proof by adult, I decided to just go and see how  it’ll work with my laughable resist.

    I tweaked my deck setup a little. I’ll post it later. I decided to drop Life Mastery when I 1v1, and only use it when I team play.

    Anyways, I started to rank PvP. I did 7 matches, and my record is now 5-2. Here is a recap of the matches

    1: lvl 37 Fire Private- 1st This was a simple match. Nothing groundbreaking went on here. WIN

    2: lvl 31 Death Knight- 1st WIN This was an easy match.  He must not have had Arena gear yet, because 1 cow put him on the defensive. 2 more finished him

    3: lvl 33 Myth Private 2nd WIN: He made quite a few questionable moves, but just like my other 3 matches, 3 attacks ended it. 2 cows and a judge

    4: lvl 11 Fire Warlord 2nd: This was extremely easy to be fighting a Warlord. I started off with Elemental Shield. I actually Elemental and Spirit shield in every match, even if it’s not needed. I don’t want any surprise Mastery killing me. She suffered from a really small deck and suffered from Pre-Tower Shield Syndrome. She had 2 TC Tower Shields, and that was it. I used pierce to drop one of them, and the other, I dropped in the same turn with a cow. She hit me with some Storm TC that would’ve put a huge dent in my health had I not shielded. She also used a weak Locust Swarm. With her low life, I had no problems hitting through her shield. She healed and I hit her again, this time, with a clear field. She had about 200 left. She started pleading with me then to not kill her. Sorry, babe, but I’m here to get my self to Warlord, not keep up your career. I ended her perfect record. She then messaged me after, telling me that she hopes I lose all the rest of my fights. I told her thank you

    5: lvl 35 Ice Knight 1st LOSE: This was my first loss. Even in practice, I always have trouble beating Ice. However, this guy had the one thing that caused my downfall: Fortify pet. It had nothing else worth noting. Just MC Fortify Ice already has nice Pre-Arena, Pre-PD pet resist. Fortify just made my job a lot harder, since it canceled out my Infallible. He did an excellent job in keeping my attack power down with that, shield spam and weakness spam. He busted me with a huge Frostbite that busted me with a 600 initial, then 600 Over time. Had I not Triaged, the match would’ve been over long before. He also kept healing. My main deck holds 2 attacks and only 1 reshuffle. He stalled me out, then I just let him finish me, since there were no more attacks I could use

    6: lvl 36 Balance Private 1st WIN: This was an easy one. He basically dug his own grave I bladed twice, 1 was a TC, then he used Feint and I used Hex. Looking at the hole he was in, I disregarded the minion he summoned. He didn’t shield, nor did he weakness. I ended him with a OHKO Judge

    7: lvl 28 Death Warlord 1st LOSE: This guy here went clean Storm on me. He had an Infa-Pet. In the first turn, he bladed and pet used Infa. The next turn, he started his Poison barrage. Poison, then blade, then Poison again. Him snagging Power pips didn’t help My mind was in a frenzy. My thought was to hit him to make him stop attacking, but apparently my deck was in a frenzy too, because nothing popped up. He ended me with a Pirate. Like in all my wins, he did it within his Infallible turns. I couldn’t even react in this match

     

    My rank right now is Corporal. That last loss knocked me from Sergeant. I have to win it back. Overall, though, my deck setup is currently working. I have to limit myself to 1 judge, though. I need as many cows as possible in my side, and I have to add 2 more Shuffles.

     

    In battle, healing is an after-thought. I don’t have time for turtle games. I don’t have the resist for that, nor do I have the Fortify pet for that. My defense is my offense. If I use all my Cows in my side, that’s GG. The only way I can keep my Resist from being a major problem is to kill before resist is needed. I rarely heal. I only use sprite to drop infections if I fell like I need to heal in the next few turns. Playing too slow will cause my loss. That’s what happened with the Ice guy. No time for Turtle games. Kill or be killed. With me, it’s literally that simple

    I’m hoping for a good pet. I don’t even have Proof yet. After 3 Starfishes, and 2 Enchanted Armaments, you’d think SOMETHING would have Proof, but no. The Armament wasn’t even courteous enough to give me Pain-giver, which would be a god-send. My ideal pet is 3 Attack, Proof, and Infallible………. or 2 Attacks, Fairy, Proof, and Infallible. That’d be awesome

    Anyways, that’s a few matches. Hopefully, by the next update, I’ll get a pet worth working with. That, and I have a rank worth talking about. Not holding my breath, though, for the pet. I can get the rank, as long as the Cow gods say so

    • Nice to read an update 🙂 Get pet hatching! Pets are so important…
