In this instance, we will be focusing specifically on storm PVP (1v1)
There is no one absolute best gear as people can alternate between their gears to suit the strategy that they are most comfortable with using.
The recommended goal for storm PVP is to have high damage, high pierce, decent critical, and decent resistance. With other stats like accuracy and pip chance being max. (100% or more)
We will be pointing out all the recommended gear for storm PVP with some alternatives included. The gear as follows:

Best storm PVP pet
Pet: Since every single turn matter for a storm, having a pet that can save you a few extra turns is crucial so have either or both May Cast Infallible and Galvanic Field also never underestimate resistance on a storm; lasting even one turn longer in a battle can make a storm wizard more dangerous. Then fill extra slots with Damage.
Can also use a pet with a useful spell for example:
Which spells to use
Basically, Storm prides itself on raw damage and some luck. The luck factor doesn’t always have to be a bad thing as it is mostly required when already in a losing position.
Although few storm spells depend on luck for a good outcome, the raw damage spells can compensate for this.
Unlike most other schools, Storm’s strategy isn’t straight forward or cannot easily be pre-planned. Instead, Storm wizards need to play according to situations that
occur in the match. for example, capitalizing on opponents not shielding or catching opponent off-guard.
We will point out the different spells and their main uses. Starting off with storm school-specific spells.
First, we have Spamming spells to get rid of shields which include Lightning Bats and Wild Bolt. Use these spells to get rid of the opponent’s defenses.
Next, we have Spells that can save you an extra turn or add an extra buff while doing decent damage, for example; Storm Lord, Queen Calypso, and king Artorius storm. Use these spells to get a slight advantage over opponents.
Then we have assault attacking spells. Use these spells to do large amounts of damage on opponents and placing them under pressure. These spells include Iron Sultan and Rusalka’s Wrath. These spells would most likely be used later in the match as they require shadow pips.
After that, we have a Potential one-shot sniper spell which can end the opponent on your very first attack. This spell is Scion of Storm. Make sure to use this spell when the opponent is at full hp in order to do double the damage.
When all else fails, don’t give up just yet, that’s when the “luck factor” comes in! Yes, better be praying to the moon gods for this one, Insane Bolt. You have a 50% chance of hitting opponents hard or knocking out your own self, which is why you should use this spell when all other plans fail. Wish you good luck.
Although it is not recommended that you carry blades, always try to keep in control of the field by using your global spell which is Darkwind.
Spells from other schools.
Shields: Carry a few tower shields to weaken the opponent’s attacks and also some set shields for more defense.
De-buffs: Carry infection for wizards that love healing like Life.
Shadow Shrike: to pierce heavily through opponents’ defenses, especially wizards that love jading.
Stun blocks: very important, these spells can decide matches, and most everybody carry them now a days.
Treasure cards: If you are able you should get some rare treasure cards such as Storm Elf, Storm Beetle, and Storm Efreet to make things difficult for your opponents.
