Azteca seems pretty amazing to me! Even if i'm only on Zafaria i've been there because my friend teleported me there. I have not been in a battle there before but they seem to be rank 12 and that is so high!
Azteca is frustrating and difficult. I am a Mercenary for Hire from 101Central, and an adult player, and I started my Storm through it in test, and then again when it went live. I have never been so angry with Wizard101.
The gear is woefully inadequate for the level of battle. I cannot progress without the use of elixirs (damage, critical block and major regeneration for dungeons), and the drop rate for drop quests is horrible.
I am sick of seeing Ninja Pigs, Earthquake, stunning spells, and enemies whose critical rating is better than any wizard I have ever seen.
And the enemies start with so many pips! I was hit by 2 critical Efreets in the first round, which killed me, even with Waterworks gear. I have been sent to the commons defeated more in Azteca than in the entire game.
I refuse to move my Balance any further until there is a convert/prism that can be used for Balance enemies.
It makes me sick to think of playing Azteca. I guess I'll be a level 80 and below Mercenary, if I play at all.
