      Balance Deckalathon!

      Good luck to everyone!

      Do you have what it takes to ace the incredible test that awaits you? Now through June 22nd, Wizards level 10 and above can showcase their spell-slinging skills as they claw their way to the top of the Balance Deckathalon Tower. With no bonuses from your gear, level, or the ability to use regular trained spells, it’ll just be up to you, your treasure cards, and a well-crafted strategy to fight your way through 30 floors of judgmental enemies. Those who manage to reach the top will be challenged by Alhazred himself!
      Each Wizard will gain three entries into the Balance Deckathalon per day. Upon entry, you’ll be able to climb the tower as high as you can until you’re defeated or run out of treasure cards. Once you run out of entries, you’ll need to wait for the next day to claim more.

      As you battle to the top of the tower, you’ll have the opportunity to purchase crafting recipes that may help you on your journey to becoming a top Deckathlete. After all, only the most dedicated Wizards will rise to the top of the leaderboard! High ranking Deckathletes can earn unique badges and trophies for their achievements.
      Defeating monsters in the Deckathalon and using treasure cards in battle will contribute points to your individual progress bar. Accumulating enough points can reap great rewards such as the all-powerful Hands of Fate weapon and cute Balance Class Pet!

      More good news! Earning points in the Balance Deckathalon will also earn you points towards your Scroll of Fortune progress for even more rewards.
      Click the Gamma icon in the top right corner or visit the Wizard City Library to get started!
      Hurry! This event ends June 22nd! Please note that you only have ~72 hours after an event ends to redeem individual progress rewards.

      Been wondering.. can you do anything with the marvelous clay once the gauntlet is crafted? Or is it just disposable stuff?

      Re: Balance Deckalathon!

      I have been asking myself this question: is the balance blade from the Hands of Fate supposed to show up in your deck when doing the deckathalon? I seem to remember this happening in the past, but not this time.

      Re: Balance Deckalathon!

      Now I recalled again why I hated this one so much (even though I just ground my way to Balance Class Pet - the old one, not tainted with the "will cast" talents). I just tried to go through 5.2 - level 7 Life deck, with +104 health and +51 balance defense jewels. I got some Death drain cards, including Scarecrow - on 5.2, you need at least Deathblade, Spirit Blade and Death Trap on the bigger enemy to push enough damage through the inevitable weakness, though it might not be enough for the smaller one. Tons of Tower Shields and a couple of Elemental Shields. Unfortunately, my pet has only Fairy Friend and Fearless Fortifier - good talents but insufficient.

      Throughout all of my 3 credits worth of going, the pet never cast a Fairy - quite a disappointment. It did cast Fortify a few times, though way too rarely. I did get a few Fairy cards just to prop myself in dire situations. However, on 5.2, nothing worked:

      Let's start with the fact that they can (and will) use Elemental Blast. This damage is not reduced by your deck, so the only hope is that it goes through both my Tower and my Elemental, losing enough oomph to leave me standing. Bladed and trapped Storm part can kill you even with all the health boost of the high level deckathalon deck + the highest health jewel, so you cannot stand there without a shield, ever.

      Even the funnier part is their usage of Mana Burn. In my last run, I was hit by 8 or 9 Mana Burns in single 5.2 fight, the last one bringing me down. I was allowed to get to higher pips only once, and because I miscalculated, my Scarecrow came some mere 12 health points short of killing even one of the enemies. Next time, I'll probably use three blades instead of just two. Anyway, I really lost count of how many shields I used in that battle, but it was actually all of them, and 3 Fairies to keep myself alive.

      Oh, but after using Mana Burn, they are left with very low pips, right? Yes, but it doesn't help. Their power pip chance is much higher than mine, so they get back to it faster than I recover. In the mean time, they use 0-pip spells: Balanceblade, Hex (these two are scary but not too bad), Weakness and Black Mantle. The event is already heavily punishing fizzles - even one fizzle can cost you a full credit, and there are only precious few. So yes, let's put out that fire with gasoline, won't we? My last run ended when one of my backup Vampires fizzled on a mantle - to be followed by the fatal mana burn from the targeted enemy.

      The combination of all the factors tip the scale so much against you that there needs to be some huge luck to get through the higher x.2 levels even once. I'm quite ready to switch from Death spells to something else (Storm gets a good accuracy boost in the tower, so maybe I should use those despite the mobs not boosting to it).

      Any advice will be appreciated.

      You have not been able to use the hands of fate balance blade in any deckalathon. It is just a stitch item that comes from deckalathon.

      I'll start with an easy tip to help since it's just the beginning : WHO said that they aren't boosted vs storm?

      tactics is pretty much the same as other deckathalons, really. get the bigger balance decks, do one floor at time. then switch wizard and go for the full run.

      God I hate this deckathalon! It's the only one I didn't bother "finishing" to get the pet for last time around. None of pets seem to remember that they have may cast heals today, which is a pain and a half.

      I'll give it a bit of a go this time around. But this one is never fun with all the spectral blasts.
