      Jaderider's 33-37 Ice PvP guide

      *** This guide does not take into account any Astral Spells ***


      Now here are my "credentials"



      Only 12 of those are actual losses. So over the course of getting full arena gear, and the Diadem of Despair amulet, I got 12 losses. Others are from downranking, and 1 from bug.


      Well here we go.

      Introduction....


      Time for my own little Ice guide here for 33-37 Ice wizards

      Stops at 37, because my ice is at level 37 so all my experience dueliing is without the Iceblade spell.
      I chose this level range because Onion Knight made a great guide for Midlevels Thaumaturges. That guide covers until about level 32. Level 33 is when Ice gains it's bubble so my guide goes on from that point, and is directed more so of the 28-37 ladder range in which I am currently apart of.

      If you are looking for Onion Knights guide you may find it
      here.


      Gear

      Of course Arena gear is number one choice, but for those who cannot get it... here we go.


      33-34
      Robe: Meowiarty's Robe of Ice +266 HP/ +5% General Resist/ +2% Ice Accuracy/ +4% Ice attack
      Hat
      : Jacque's Hat of Winter +177 HP/ +4% General Resist/ +1% Ice accuracy/ +3% Ice attack
      Boots
      : Sprockets' Shoes of Ideals +89 HP/ +3% General Resist/ +1% Ice Accuracy/ +1% Ice attack

      35-37
      :Robe: Yakedo's Rational Cloak +236 HP/ +7% General resist/ 2% Ice accuracy/ +5% Ice attack
      Hat:
      Youkai's Rational Hat +156 HP/ +5% General Resist/ +1% Ice Accuracy/ +4% Ice damage
      Boots
      :Youkai's Slippers +78 HP/ +4% General Resist/ +1% Ice Accuracy/ +2% Ice attack

      Now those are the sets if you don't Mind farming for your gear, otherwise just go to the Bazaar and get the best

      gear your gold can buy for your level.

      ***Crown gear can also be used, just buy the gear you want for your level.


      For
      amulet, I switch off between... Nightshades Choker(2 weakness), and Diadem of Despair(2 Infection). The choice
      is up to you, but those are some of my favorites, for myth I definitely would suggest Nightshades, and for Life I
      would suggest Diadem more.

      Ring
      : use whatever you want, crown or something from bazaar.
      Athame
      : I like using the Heartsteel for even more resist. However when I get to 40 I am switching out for the Power pip ones.
      Wand
      : A storm wand is great, something that gives a pip is preferred. For now I would avoid an Ice wand.

      How to use Training points...

      Life to sprite(4 training points)
      -Imp
      -Leprachaun
      -Legend Shield
      -Sprite



      Infection(1 Training point)
      Learn from Mortis the Death tree in Nightside

      Elemental Blades(1 Training point)
      Learn from Niles the Balance tree at the Krokosphinx

      Reshuffle(1 Training Point)
      Learn from Mildred Farseer in Colossus in a house across from Mindy


      Balance to weakness(3 Training Points)
      -Scarab
      -Scorpion
      -Weakness

      *** Optional Ice Elf. You would need to train Fire elf to make these. It is a great spell, and I would greatly recommend it. It is possible to get both Weakness and Fire elf if you either get the Training point from Grizzleheim, or Moo-Shu ***

      Fire Elf(2 Training Points)
      -Fire Cat
      -Fire Elf




      The Spells

      Blizzard: Your minion killer. An essential spell and highly used when you start to get more competitive in duels.
      You can hit the minion, you hit the opponent, its a 2 for 1 spell.

      Frostbite: The main attack in your arsenal. It is the best way to start off your combos. It breaks a shield then does
      damage for 3 turns. Frostbite has the highest damage per pip rate of all ice spells(excluding Ice Hound, which CAN get over 100 damage per pip).It will be supplying most of your damage when you are not hitting with blizzard.

      Ice Wyvern: Wyvern is your finisher spell. I personally would rather wear the opponent down with frostbites, then hit with a wyvern instead of using a chain of wyverns. I like to keep 2-3 of these boosted(tough, strong, etc...) in my sideboard for a sure finish at the end.

      Tower shield: Should be in every wizards deck, not just Thaumaturges. Best used to fight off Judgements, shield minions, and to just have extra shields for any school.

      Volcanic Shield: Used for fighting off Storm and Fire wizards

      Sprite: Best heal in the game, great to remove infections, a must have.

      Pixie: When you just need more hp, and don't have 3 rounds to get it.

      Legend shield: Fight off those Conjurers and Necromancers

      Freeze: Carry only 1 in deck since there are 4 stun shields that follow. Use when you can't defend and need an extra turn to draw a shield, use to gain a free turn while a dot is going to hit wyvern or blizzard unshielded, use to get another round to try and get another pip to hit.

      Steal Ward: I only really found use of this in lower level decks, it can really come in handy, but it was situational, and I didn't have too much of a need for it, after leveling.

      Balefrost : It is THE BUFF to have for Ice. Starts off with 35% boost instead of the other schools 25%(not including treasures). When you don't have Ice Blade until 38, you need this buff, not onyl to win bubble war, but to get some decent damage. A must have in deck!

      Elemental blades: Your only source of blades without special ones from gear or pets. Great for removing white pips, and a nice extra boost.

      Ice minion: Ice deals kinda weak Damage, this guy evens the playing field. You get 400 hp for only 3 pips with this guy. He highest damage hit is 3
      pips, but it can really add up as you are building up for a combo/attack of your own.

      Infection: People tend to heal a lot in tournaments in ladder challenges, so you need this to cut down their heals and try to stay ahead on their hp.

      Reshuffle: You NEED to have this... As of the Celestia update, you only need 1 Reshuffle. It will reshuffle itself! Which is great! However, it will be at the VERY bottom of the deck after the reshuffle. Every time.

      Weakness: A great debuff for dots and multi hit spells(Minotaur, Orthrus...) I recommend carrying the max in the deck you can.

      Now the Deck Set-up
      I recommend the first deck set-up for ranked. I suggest using the Usegi's deck for Tournaments and Ladder.



      Now this picture is the set-up I use for ranked. You are welcome to give it a shot, but I wouldn't recommend it that much. With just 2 infections. However it fits my playing style well




      How to use this deck...

      I find the Best ways to kill with an ice is... Set-up minion, get well defended(shields, weaknesses, and infections set up), get bubble and multiple blades

      up, get a full pip rack. Then once all set up, start offa combo with a frostbite. If you got enough pips, use another frostbite. If you have your stun, use
      that. And when enough pips use a wyvern(preferably one from treasure).

      This will not work every time, but from first you got a high chance of pulling this off.


      A Key point in this deck working is keeping the Balefrost up. Winning the bubble war is highly important in playing with this deck.
      Also, keep the opponents minion down. That is why we have Blizzard. A Balefrosted Blizzard should kill all minions besides a 4 pip Cyclops minion and some Death minions. So keeping Balefrost up is essential.

      Ice is an incredibly patient school. You cannot go into a match and go off firing wyverns as soon as you get the pips. With Ice's low damage you need buffs,

      and be able to string attacks together. Ice is very powerful though with its high hp, and can stick around long enough from second to be given a fair fighting
      chance.


      If I am missing anything or you would like something to explained better be sure to ask in a comment so I can help make this guide fit your guys and girls ice

      PvP needs.

      Re: 33-37 Ice PvP guide

      I added a couple pictures to the guide, so it is easier on the eyes for instruction now... Meaning there is now a deck set-up.

      Re: 33-37 Ice PvP guide

      Really nice guide, Alex.

      The one thing that stuck out to me in your deck was only 3 Infections (granted, you have 2 extra from amulet). I usually try to get as many as I can, but that's your call. 5 is definitely sufficient.

      Like I said, that deck is ranked. And in ranked you don't fight as many people higher ranks( pretty much like veteran and below, with them being high levels). 3 Tends to be far more than enough, since I can usually kill them before they heal twice. I also, typically don't use the amulet in ranked. With the ranking system messed up I don't get to face as many tough opponents, so ranked deck differs a lot from how I would set-up for a ladder or tournament. That ser-up is not the one I persoanlly use for ranked, just the one I'd suggest to others.

      When I did have 4 in I kept needing to discard some to find my attacks to finish them. In tournaments and ladders though, I do pack all 4.

      Re: 33-37 Ice PvP guide

      I added the actual deck-set up that I personally use for ranked. The first was the one I'd recommend to other players out there.

      I'm sure OK will hate my ranked deck. :P

      It reshuffles itself now. I have tested it myself. So now you only need one and the Reshuffle will be the very last card in ceck after you have reshuffled at least once.
