      On another note, has anyone gotten their pet yet? And if so, is it indeed possible to share with other wizards on that account? As I try to determine which is more important to me - the badge or the pet - it would be good to know for sure whether the pet is share-able.

      The Pet is not currently shareable but KI have stated they intend to make all of the Deckathalon pets tradable again soon

      Re: Balance Deckalathon!

      I finally beat stage 6, on my fifth try. I did come close another time, but the storm shark that would have won lev 3 fizzled. And though I had over 500 health, he hit me with a 600 spectral blast. I could have used a dryad to heal, but I took a chance, thinking that even if I fizzled, he might be saving up for yet another mana burn. No such luck

      Anyway, my plan was to shield and heal, and nickel and dime them with bats and sharks to use up pips when they were about to mana burn me. And they had quite a few mana burns when I had zero pips. I used a lev 8 ice deck (with defense sapphire) which, with volcanic shields, knocked hydra damage way down when they didn't mana burn me.

      I got lucky though. I had one krokopatra in my deck, not expecting to ever be able to summon him (5 pips), but just in case. The chance came through in level 2. I summoned him, and used up all my pips in the process, so when they did a mana burn on me the same turn - 0 pip burn. He hit one of them on his first turn, and then finished him off the next turn with a 6 pip hit. Allowed me to dig for my last dryad and heal up.

      Now I can farm to heart's content on levels 1-5, and my main wiz can shoot for the leader board.

      A tangential rant about Krokopatra...

      It makes me absolutely crazy that KI has multiple TC with the same name that all do very different things and Krokopatra has got to be one of the worst. Wiki lists 4 different Storm TC named Krokopatra - the 4 pip version that does 405 damage and removes a charm and a shield, a 4 pip version that does 660 damage, a 5 pip version that does 830 damage, and of course the 5 pip minion. How...unimaginative? Lazy?...do you have to be to call all of them the same thing? I get it - Krokopatra is well themed for Krokotopia, but surely someone at KI could have come up with something clever for some of the other Egyptians queens like Hatshepsut? Nefertiti more than any other name screams to be lampooned! And if the powerful Egyptians of yore are perhaps too obscure, the very least they could do would be call one Super Krokopatra, or Stormy Krokopatra, or Tricky Krokopatra, or...ANYTHING but Krokopatra!

      If only this was the one and only case - alas, the game is rife with cards with the same name that do very different things.

      Off, my soapbox....

      Back in the deckathalon, my luck continues to elude me. Adding Frozen Armor has been game changer and huge thanks to @Ravino and @richardDkht for giving us a glimpse at their card set. However, my luck can be epitomized by an exchange I had at 7.2 last night - managed to get Krokopatra (ack!) out with perfect health. She then goes on to Fizz, fizz, and fizz the next three rounds. Finally, with a ton of pips, she lands a Heckhound (nooooo!), but despite the fact that it's doing 200+ damage on one of them, I continue to be the threat and take a massive amount of damage. I manage to escape the fight but with less than 50 health and things go downhill from there.

      As badly as things are going, turns out there's a silver lining to failing so miserably on one level - unlike previous Deckathalons where I struggle to use all my credits, I will have NO problem with this event!

      Re: Balance Deckalathon!

      excited to see someone actually finished this, argh. ok, i managed to get through stage 9 - levels 6 and up, i basically have been spending my pips first round. if i can get a minion up that is my preferred way to go, even though they are low level, either ice colossus or water elemental. i get mana burned so often right off the bat that i just have been trying that route, figuring it will take luck to get through. i made a level 8 balance deck, that's what i used in stage 9.

      when i say it was a lucky run, in the second fight they had me at half health twice and down to 13 health once in the first 4 rounds. my pet healed like a champ, and saved my bacon. and then didn't heal again for the rest of the dungeon, but she had already saved me, so. it's frustrating to have to have a lucky run to get through. i feel like it should be more skill, but at least in my case, that ain't it.

      here's the weird thing. the recipes available at the end of the dungeon were both 9 AND 10 decks. so i bought them both, i hope it's not a mistake. it would be a difficult error, right? i mean i just figured they would have to do it on purpose.

      so now i am farming on my other wizards trying to get enough runes to make at least a level 9 deck. it is so boring lol but at least i'm racking up some points.

      can we call this the most difficult deckathalon? it's nuts.

      Slightly outdated, Stone Wall should be replaced with Steal Charm. The plan is simple:

      • Use Frozen Armor, Animate, Sprite and Steal Charm to burn pips when enemies can Mana Burn.
      • Tempest is your main hit in middle floor, use it in combination with Empower when you a.) have Frozen Armor, b.) enemies can't Mana Burn.
      • Deathblade, Feint, Wraith in single mob floors.


      If your deck is smaller reduce the amounts of Towers and Animate, and take out Steal Charm and Dryad. If you have decks from other deckathalons you should favor whichever has the most space over the Balance decks.
      I've given this strat 8 tries and I can't seem to get it to work so I think i might be missing something :/
      I on that second floor i can't seem to get the pips of the enemies down, they constantly have so many pips so it's just elemental blast spam city haha. I think part of the problem might be that the best deck I have is the deckathalon deck 4 with a 100 health opal socketed and a pet with only fairy and healing current. Is it even possible with such a subpar gear set?

      A bit frustrated and waiting for 3 more credits tomorrow haha.

      I used a level 8 Ice deck, so I don't know how much this will help, but the ice deck with a +53 resistance sapphire and volcanic shields(archivist in celestia) kept the damage from hydras and spectral blasts way down. Used lightening bats and storm sharks and an occasional kraken or fairy to use up pips when they could mana burn. Tempest sounds like it would work better, but I didn't have enough of those to use that strategy. The level 8 deck let me carry enough cards, a lev 4 might not unless you do have tempests and blades, especially if you use supercharge. And I managed to get a minion down. It was krokopatra, but even a 3 pip minion might distract them for a few critical turns.

      Re: Balance Deckalathon!

      I am using a Life Deckathletes Deck 7 to run Stages 1.1 to 5.1. This deck gives 8% boost to Death Spells; and I have a 24 point Citrine defense jewel and a 10 point health jewel on it. That's the best I had available for my Level 50 Balance wizard. Also I don't have a healing pet on this wizard.

      Name:  Life Deck.JPG
Views: 102
Size:  71.4 KB
      Basic Strategy (Heals and most shields not shown)

      1.1 Pass, Vampire
      1.2 Tempest (3 pips)
      1.3 Pass, Vampire

      2.1 Pass, Vampire
      2.2 Pass, Tempest (4 pips)
      2.3 Pass, Vampire

      3.1 Deathblade, Vampire
      3.2 Tower Shield, Stormblade, Tempest (5 pips)
      3.3 Deaathbalde, Balanceblade, Vampire

      4.1 Deathblade, Feint, Vampire
      4.2 Stormblade, Balanceblade, Scarecrow (7 pips), Ghoul
      4.3 Deathblade, Feint, Vampire

      5.1 Deathblade, Feint, Lord of Night or Vampire, Ghoul

      For each level, I watch the NPC's pips and my health; and use shields and heals as needed to not get too depleted. The pattern varies depending on what the NPC's do. Most of the time I have a couple shields, a heal, and a couple hits left over.

      For 4.2 I use Tower first, then try to get a pair of element shields up to cover all three schools. The only problem occurs is both NPC"s Spectral Blast hits with the same school on a given turn.

      Re: Balance Deckalathon!

      I use a lev 6 Bal deck, with +113 health and +50 resistance gem

      Stage 1: 4 Lightening bats

      Stage 2: 4 Storm sharks.
      For lev 2: Shark, shield, pass, shark. Sometimes I might try a bat for the second hit, but only if I have a thunder snake in hand in case the bats only hit for 285;

      Stage 3:
      Lev 1: If I feel lucky storm shark. May have to follow up with snake if shark only hits for 425. Otherwise, shield, kraken
      Lev 2: Shield, kraken, shield, pass, shark+snake (if necessary) or pass+kraken
      Lev 3: Shield, Kraken
      If they start throwing weaknesses, instead of kraken may have to snake then shark

      Stage 4 can be tricky at lev 2 if they both throw spectral blast.
      Lev 1: Shield, pass, stormzilla. Or if I have any snake left Shield, kraken, snake if necessary.
      Use snake/bat first if there is a weakmess.
      Lev 2: Shield,shield, stormzilla then play by ear. May need to heal, shield, pip up for stormzilla or bat+shark or kraken combo
      Use snake or bat if there is a weakness, then whatever it takes to finish off
      Lev 3: Shield, pass, stormzilla or bat+shark or kraken (bat to use up weakness)

      Stage 5, lev 1 Shield, kraken (in case he mana burns) then whatever it takes

      Deck:
      13 Shield
      2 Fairy
      1 Sprite
      3 Thunder Snake
      9 Lighting bats
      8 or 9 Storm Shark
      5 Kraken
      2 or 3 Stormzilla
