Wizard 101: Not So Hard Knock, the Life School of Wizardry

Posted by | August 29, 2008

What can we say? Your professor is a cow. Moolinda Wu heads up Life studies in Wizard City and she brings her teachings to her students in all her maternal glory. Life wizardry is all about the connection between all things, a couple friendly forest creatures, and a lot of healing. One of the strange boons of the Life school is the ability to use self-only healing spells on teammates—this particular effect has saved our beef in duels more than once.

What we are referring to is the Pixie card—an early 2-pip duel spell that heals four-hundred (400) hit points at a whack. It’s only issue: the spell can only be cast on self; unless you happen to be a Life wizard. This particularity means that once a Life wizard has picked up this particular card they can sling it about as an all-purpose save-my-friends-from-certain-doom spell.

The Life school also boasts a variety of protection spells, and interesting buffs, like the mid-level Sanctuary spell which gives +50% to all healing spells. Something that will probably come in handy during miniboss and boss duels of attrition where the two sides are defending against heavy handed assaults while trying to gain the time to bring in their own artillery.

A Life wizard on the team is a must for any drawn out encounter.

As for attack spells, they have their fair share just like everyone else. But the funniest one of all happens to be the Leprechaun. A pot of gold arrives on scene and produces a rainbow, down which scampers a very tiny fellow wearing green. He leaps into the gold, splashing it everywhere—all the while speaking gibberish—and then he offers the gold coins to the target, at ballistic speed. He actually does some vicious damage.

With an array of attacks, some shields, and healing, the Life school is a well-rounded offer. They don’t do a lot of outgoing damage but sheer support will keep a group running for quite a while. It pairs well with other support schools for team work and also well with heavy damage output schools for solo play.

Really, though, we voces play out Life wizard primarily to make friends.

    I am also a life student and I think a very good team(probably not the best though) would be a therugist, a diviner, a sorcerer, and a thaumaturge. The life student would heal, the storm student would own the opponents with shocking attacks, and the balance and ice students would offer protection with elemental and tower shields and, of course when anybody’s job is already done they attack whether with frost beetles, big trees, or swarms of bugs.

    I am known as Keira Swift breaker a life student currently on level 35 if any one see’s this that is my friend my real name is Kara. So yeah life has its ups and downs for example life is really good at healing, has high accuracy, and is not easy to take down. But however on the contrary life doesnt have a lot of attack spells, minion is weak and primary doesn’t do a lot of damage. But if you do a critical move it does, and i guess you can use your life blades and life trap to boost it up but still. Spiritual armor, minion, tower shield, good skills, and a pet that heals are unstopable. So yeah over all life is one of the better schools out there for sure :)

    Being a life wizard~ I know how frustrating it is to be one xD
    If you have a rediculosly high amount of patience and don’t
    mind being the main target in every single duel, then life
    is a good school 4 you xD. back when there were only 50
    levels, life only had 2 good attacks *seraph and centaur*
    and u had to wait 22 levels to get ur first decent attack,
    then wait another 11 levels or so untill u got ur only other
    decent attack card xD. Thank gawd KI made more updates
    and worlds cuz now life has seraph, centaur, forest lord,
    gnomes, and spinysaur. and btw u get ur first all enemy
    hit spell @ lvl 58 xD when other schools get theirs
    somewhere in their 20’s.

    I am a 10 level life student
    life is probably the best in a team a team without life would go down easily.and life with death storm and ballance in a PvP are unbeatable.in my opinion
