Let me start off by saying, balance is by far my favorite school to PvP with, the reason to this is because we all know balance is that school that loves to spam and we have the power to control each match with 3 of the best spells we obtain when reaching level 76. Later on this guide I will tell you what each spell is, and how to use it correctly. Using all the skills I teach you in this guide should open you a clean path to becoming overlord! Haha, don’t believe me? Well try it for yourself.
For credibility, here is the rank I have gained this age so far.
After you reach what I call “the rank of the exalts” (1300), you will notice that you will start facing a numerous amount of wizards with shadow spells, this shouldn’t worry you so much since we have the best 3 spells in the game that could stop any of their combo, Loremaster, Mana Burn, and perhaps Supernova.
The gear I’ll show you is by far the best gear you could come across when doing transcendent balance PvP.
I would highly recommend to invest in some of the new Professor’s Hoard Packs. The reason to this is because you will want to have as much critical as you can get to critical your heals. The balance boots is what you will be looking for. (Alhazred’s Consistent Clogs)
Before starting PvP make sure you have enough tickets from tournaments to buy The Duelist’s Daredevil Ring, and the Duelist’s Fatal Razor. Those two pieces of gear are by far the most best ring and amulet you can find for PvP.
Pets pets pets, the worst thing when it comes to PvP the pain of seeing your pet fail and prevent you from going into a match. Your pet is by far your best tool in a match. There is a wide range of pets that could be used in a match. Personally if you can obtain an Infallible, Enfeeble, Proof, and double balance damage. I would highly recommend using it when you surpass “the rank of exalts” because you wouldn’t want to face ice wizards who carry a mass amount of resist and a millennium amount of blades. Personally, I couldn’t get my hands on the pet I need, so these both pets will also work during a match. A Clockwork Paladin pet is the best pet when doing Balance PvP, you will need the minions to protect you and win you the clutch moments! Example pet:
Lemme start off by saying, each one of your training points is valuable and will come into use during a match. That being said, spend you training points wisely, as you will need each last training point you can get.
Death to Doom and Gloom – 8 TP
(by far my most used spell during a balance PvP match, apart from Loremaster.)
Ice to Tower – 5 TP
Sun to Colossal – 5 TP
Star School to Infallible – 1 TP
Infection – 1 TP
Now I am assuming this is the part everyone came for, so now lets get down to business.
The strategy to this deck is fairly simple, you may think it would be something complex, but no. Your 3 most useful spells in a match would be Loremaster, Mana Burn, and Doom and Gloom.
This strategy consists of 3 main steps, the setup, the spam, and the clean up. You brought your opponent down to half health with the use of lore what do you do? That’s right, you will doom. However, if you doom with your health being below there’s just know Loremaster always loved you. Make sure to have enough health so he didn’t out smart you under a doom!
You entered your first match and at this point you will want to build pips and organize your deck for step 2, with all those infections, weaknesses etc, you should be able to get a good stream of hangings on him. Infections and weaknesses will be key, so spam them until you are ready to dominate. As you may know you wouldn’t be facing many people with block and much more people with high critical, you would want to stay in constant protection and not go fully offensive just so yet. Mana burn is your key spell, keep your pips high, and their pips lows. I will explain each school specific strategies later down this guide and what you will need to discard against each one.
If you don’t pull doom, you played it all wrong.
This is why I keep so many Doom and Gloom in the main deck and in the side deck. Now, here is where you will start your combos and lore spams, from here on you would want to put up an infallible to pierce all that resist on your opponent and prevent from fizzles, remember DO NOT INFALLIBLE AGAINST BALANCE WIZARDS! While under your infallible you would want to spam your opponent with the meticulous Loremaster, and making sure at the same time their pips aren’t so high and you are under protection. Mana burn is the best spell if you used it right so always have one in hand to stop their combo’s. Never let your opponent’s minion stay for more than a round, this will cause a huge problem and may break your strategy. Loremaster is your best tool because it can de-buff your opponents and perhaps force them to heal, at this point in the match you’re sitting at more than half health, you will want to doom asap to prevent them from healing all your damage. Make sure to POP all as many of their auras to deal a decent amount of damage making them drain their pips.
This is probably by far the easiest step, during this step you would want to finish them up with a few Loremaster and make sure you constantly have doom up, NEVER OVER DRAW YOUR TC.
Finishing up your opponent, you have a numerous amount of spells that can finish up your opponent, scorpion, and judgement, I also include a few stuns just in case I do not pull either of those spells. After your match gives yourself a pat on the back and make sure not to be mean to your opponent, but what you should do is give them a hand and give them some advice on what they could have done next time. If you are second, do not be scared to predict your opponents bubble, you have enough dooms to win you the game, after accomplishing your goal sit back and repeat the process. However, this leads to my next section the school specific strategies.
“The Rank of The Exalts”
During your ladder to warlord you will start to face Wizards with shrike don’t be discouraged if you lose to them, however, just retry the process or maybe take a small break and come back and win a lot more matches. If you encounter shrike make sure you are constantly shielding and spamming weaknesses, mana burn to prevent them using the ugly shadow spells and stop their massive combo’s!
