      Storm Deckathalon, thru July 27th.

      From the Wizard101 website:



      Do you have what it takes to ace the thundering test that awaits you? Now through July 27th, Wizards level 10 and above can showcase their spell-slinging skills as they claw their way to the top of the Storm Deckathalon Tower. With no bonuses from your gear, level, or the ability to use regular trained spells, itíll just be up to you, your treasure cards, and a well-crafted strategy to fight your way through 30 floors of shocking enemies. Those who manage to reach the top will be challenged by Professor Balestrom himself!

      Each Wizard will gain three entries into the Storm Deckathalon per day. Upon entry, youíll be able to climb the tower as high as you can until youíre defeated or run out of treasure cards. Once you run out of entries, youíll need to wait for the next day to claim more.



      As you battle to the top of the tower, youíll 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 Storm Class Pet!

      More good news! Earning points in the Storm 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 July 27th! Please note that you only have ~72 hours after an event ends to redeem individual progress rewards.


      See the full Announcement here: https://www.wizard101.com/game/storm...email_22974%20
      Dare to catch your best dreams and live them with eyes wide open. Sweet dreams always.

      Re: Storm Deckathalon, thru July 27th.

      Should not come as a surprise to anyone that wow - these guys hit hard! Lots of blades and traps and when they start doing Storm Shark it is painful.

      One thing though - seems to me like these guys have more health than they should? For being such heavy hitters I would have expect health to be on the low side but I feels as if it's comparable to previous deckthalons.

      It would be really interesting if there was a table somewhere showing Stage and floors as rows and each deckathalon as a column to display the health of the enemy at each stage.

      Like

      Ice Death Fire Life Myth Balance Storm
      1.1 ? ? ? ? ? ? 205
      1.2 ? ? ? ? ? ? ?
      1.3 ? ? ? ? ? ? ?
      2.1 ? ? ? ? ? ? ?
      ETC ? ? ? ? ? ? ?

      Does such a table exist? I know folks have been really kind to update during each event and I suspect the info is out there to create such a table but I'd hate to work on something like this if it's already out there.

      Another thing - for any wondering about MAY CAST abilities, they absolutely work. Am using Frozen Kraken with Empowerment so far and while empowerment has been useless so far (no 4 pip spells yet), the bonus Frozen Kraken hit has been game-changing.

      The usual, worthless spellement is ....Thundersnake



      Did get through stage 5 on 2 wizards, using a lev 6 ice deck (powered up those fireballs a bit), and then a lev 5 storm deck. Actually did stages 4 and 5 on the same credit. But they do hit hard, and they're already up over 1,000 life.

      I have not seen such a table but I have most of the data captured in my individual spreadsheets for each Deckathalon. I will pull it together tonight/tomorrow and share what I have.

      UPDATE:

      Here is what I have recorded.

      Re: Storm Deckathalon, thru July 27th.

      Want to try to get to the higher levels, again new to these so I had to start with the level 1 storm deck.

      with my 3 credits today I managed to beat 3 floors and crafted the level 3 storm deck.

      I have a life ghoul pet that has all maycast heal spells, and the brace jewel. The heals rarely even cast.

      anyways if anyone has any tips for stage 4 and up I will be keeping up with this thread as I would love to beat this tower for the first time.

      Thanks!

      Re: Storm Deckathalon, thru July 27th.

      Enemies are 15% weak to Myth as usual.

      1.1 Thunderhead(205)
      1.2 Squallamander(230) + Thunderhead
      1.3 Monsoon Monk(260)

      2.1 Thunderbug(320)
      2.2 Shock Trooper(360) + Thunderbug
      2.3 Torrentula(400)

      3.1 Electric Eel(480)
      3.2 Thunderqhat(530) + Electric Eel
      3.3 Doctor Dynamo(590)

      4.1 Thundermane(710)
      4.2 Wise Kraken(790) + Thundermane
      4.3 Super Charger(870)

      5.1 Crackelope(960)
      5.2 Electroll(1060) + Crackelope
      5.3 Tornadic Mantis(1170)

      This is where I started to encounter Disarm. You get 20% pip chance on this stage + 10% for every stage after.

      6.1 Thunderball(1290)
      6.2 Zapparition(1420) + Thunderball
      6.3 Thunder Clapper(1570)​

      7.1 Tsunamitron(1730)
      7.2 Maelstromaton(1910) + Tsunamitron
      7.3 Toxic Fog Golem(2110)

      Toxic Fog Golem is where I started to encounter Queen Calypso.

      8.1 Glowering Glow Squid(2330)
      8.2 Thundering Lizard(2570) +
      Glowering Glow Squid
      8.3 Examplar Electra(2830)

      This is where I started to encounter Supercharge. It can get scary if they stack too many buffs along side it. I got hit for nearly 500 damage from Queen Calypso while behind a Storm shield.

      9.1 Ridetide Tiger(3120)

      9.2 Mistborn Gorilla(3440) + Ridetide Tiger
      9.3 Captain Sparx(3790)

      10.1 Eldritch Lice(4170)
      10.2 Doom Shroom(4590) + Eldritch Lice
      10.3 Halston Balestrom(5050)

      This is where I started to encounter Tempest and Leviathan. Tempest was absolutely terrifying for me because even with a Water Elemental out distracting them I had to make sure I always had a shield or 2 up or get potentially washed away by it.

      Re: Storm Deckathalon, thru July 27th.

      Didn't think to write down stage 5, but got a wizard through stage 6:

      Lev 1 - Thunderball 1290

      Lev 2 - Thunderball 1290
      Zapparition 1420

      Lev 4 - Thunder Clapper 1570

      Been farming the secret tunnel in empyrea for jewels, so now all 6 wizards have a stage 6 deck with a health opal at +117 or higher, and a resistance amethyst at +53 or +54.

      edit:

      Make sure you're at full health entering level 2. They BOTH hit me with a kraken on the first round. Thank the lord for regeneration and lord nightshade.

      So after I got a wizard through stage 7 on Wed, I farmed the secret tunnel like I do every day. And Gannon dropped a may cast thermic shield jewel. Great timing, as we're in storm this month and ice next month. And a great addition to my quad heal pet:

      Stage 7:

      Lev 1 Tsunamatron 1730

      Lev 2 Maelstromaton 1910 + Tsunamatron

      Lev 3 Toxic Fog Golem 2110

      Stage 8 (just to see what first mob was)

      Lev 1 Glowering Glow Squid 2330

      Lots of kraken and stormzilla.

      That is brilliant - EXACTLY what I was looking for.

      From this chart it's clear that enemy health is tied to your ability to do damage and not theirs. So, Myth had insane health because you were attacking with Storm, and Balance the least because...balance is weak? Hmmm....Regardless, feels like Storm's ability to do serious damage should factor in to things. Yes, Myth has some decent hits, but wow can these guys hit! At Stage 7 I noticed them using Supercharge, which is great as it burns all their pips, but unless you kill them pronto that 90+% blade is gonna hurt!
