Best Ice PvP Pets

In this series, I will be looking at what pets are the most popular among overlords. I will give an overview of what your best pet options are.

Today, we’re looking at Ice.

This article is based on the data I’ve collected in November and December of 2017. I collected screenshots of the pets of a total on 307 overlords. However, when divided per school, the data is too limited to draw wide conclusions about the subject. For Ice, we have a fairly large number of overlords: 77 in total. Where the data isn’t complete, I will add my own pet suggestions.


1. Enchanted Armament

Best Ice PvP PetsMost schools have the Enchanted Armament in the top three. Ice, however, has exceptionally many overlords with this pet. Out of 77 overlords, 37 (so 48 %) were using an Enchanted Armament. No doubt its three sharpened blade cards are very useful when blade stacking. This pet is the most popular at Grandmaster (10 overlords), Magus (9) and Legendary (9), but also used quite a lot at Champion (6).

Why is an Enchanted Armament a Good Pet for Ice?

Ices are especially well-known for bladestacking, so this pet is ideal for them. Most overlords these days use Ice-Ward, so to do any real damage, Ice has to blade a lot. This pet is great if you like setting up for a big attack and killing your opponent in one hit. If damage is what you’re after, this pet is useful for you.

Level range: Any
Playstyle: Offensive or bladestacking


2. Freezing Rain Core

Best Ice PvP PetsThis pet is the second most popular among Ice wizards, with six overlords using it, and for good reason. The three buffs this pet offers can be a game changer. This pet is used at pretty much any level: I ran into a Journeyman, a Magus, an Exalted and three Champions using a Freezing Rain Core.

Why is the Freezing Rain Core a Good Pet for Ice?

Three reasons: an Iceblade, an Ice bubble and a fancy Supercharge for Ice. Plus, it looks really cute! That’s not really a good reason to get a pet, I admit, but it is a plus. Who doesn’t want to be accompanied by a cute pet?

Level range: Any
Playstyle: Offensive or bladestacking


Best Ice PvP Pets3. Proper Penguin

This pet is popular with many schools, not just Ice. However, since it’s an Ice pet, I decided to include it here. It doesn’t quite live up to the popularity of the Enchanted Armament, but it is used by at least one wizard of every school and at pretty much every level range. I ran into three Ices with this pet: a Novice, an Initiate and an Exalted.

Why is the Proper Penguin a Good Pet for Ice?

While every level range benefits from having three extra Tower Shields, I can see it being the most useful at very low level PvP.

Level range: Any, but especially at 5-60
Playstyle: Any


4. Spectre Lord

Best Ice PvP PetsThis pet’s two Arcticzilla item cards have the exact same damage as the TC version. I found one Initiate and one Adept overlord with this pet.

Why is the Spectre Lord a Good Pet for Ice?

Especially if you’re low level, the two Arcticzilla cards this pet gives are awesome! You can use the TC version too, but this is an alternative if you’re not up for Bazaar farming.

Level range: 5-60
Playstyle: Any


5. Shiverous Knight / Snow Beast

This fairly new Shiverous Knight pet was used by one Champion Ice overlord. I could see this one becoming more popular as time goes on. There was also one Grandmaster Ice with a Snow Beast. I’m grouping these two pets together because they give the same card. However, the Shiverous Knight gives two cards, while the Snow Beast only gives one.

Why is the Shiverous Knight a Good Pet for Ice?

The Shiverous Knight comes with two copies of the Iceblade item card! That’s one more than the Snow Beast. Any Ice would be happy with an extra blade I’m sure! Especially since everyone seems to have Ice-Ward pets these days. However, those are not your only options. There are other pets with a blade, like the Ice Wartle with one Elemental Blade card, and the Gobblerball with one Balanceblade and one Elemental Blade.

Level range: Any
Playstyle: Any



6. Mammoth

Strangely enough, the only person with a Mammoth pet was a Champion. I’d have thought this pet would be more popular at lower levels.

Why is the Mammoth a Good Pet for Ice?

The Mammoth comes with one item card: a Stampeding Mammoth. It costs 9 pips, which makes it too pip expensive for low levels. It does 920-1020 damage and stuns your opponent for one round. This attack could be a good OHKO hit if you like bladestacking. I imagine it would be most useful before level 68, when Ice learns the actual spell.

Level range: 50-68
Playstyle: Bladestacking



7. Ice Bird

I ran into one overlord with an Ice Bird pet. The overlord in question was a Legendary wizard, while the pet was a full ward pet.

Why is the Ice Bird a Good Pet for Ice?

This pet comes with only one card, but it’s a useful card! Many Ices use the TC version of Icebird, but to have it as an item card is pretty neat too, of course.

Level range: Any
Playstyle: Any





As you can see from the table at the top of the page, overlords have many more pet options than I have mentioned here. These pet are the ones that I consider the best, but you can of course choose yourself. Some Ices have particular strategies with for example a Balance mastery, combined with a Flamenco Tocador or a CLockwork Paladin pet. These specific strategies are not included in this article.

    These guides are awesome! Please continue to writing these, I’m currently trying to make an ice pet and it really helps to have them all laid out in front of you.

    Hey misthead, I know you are one of the main writers on wiz. By any chance can you help me with a problem? I tried to make a duelist account, and when I tried to log in, it said I had an “invalid email address”. I tried to reset the password, but it said “there is no user registered with that email”. It said that I should have received a confirmation email, but I never got one. Can you please help?

    • Mora Misthead

      Sorry, my response comes a bit late! What kind of an email address did you use? We’re aware of problems with hotmail and outlook email addresses. Microsoft doesn’t seem to like Duelist and users report never getting the confirmation email. Try again with a different email address maybe?

      • Lucas Z

        I think it’s been fixed, since I can log on now. However, there’s a slight problem. I can’t login to my account normally. The only way I can log in is through the email I got from disqus. I’m not sure if i’m typing in the wrong password or username, but i’m trying to see if I can fix it. Also, there’s no problem replying a bit late; I understand that things happen, and life gets in the way sometimes. I’m just happy you did respond. No worries! 🙂

        • Mora Misthead

          Hmm O.o You sure have interesting problems! I hope you get this new one fixed as well. Try resetting your password as a last resort maybe.

          • Lucas Z

            Ok. I’ll see what I can do. Thanks for the help!
