Who likes it?? I abhor it and all of my friends do too. But they did make it a lot easier by getting rid of a few collecting quests.

Happy questing Wizard!

After they made Zafaria easier everyone 'liked' it because it wasn't as rubbish as before. Although I genuinely like the storyline too ;D

Brilliantly designed areas and characters and plotlines, not many cheating bosses, and the kill & collect quests have been nerfed so it's easier. All that being said, my Balance (who was grossly too high-level for where they were) barely scratched his way by Belloq with the help of a Henchman. I hate Belloq after that, looking forward to showing him who's boss again soon enough though.

I went through when it was packed full of Defeat and Collect quests and didn't enjoy it at all. A friend of mine actually ended up quitting Wizard101 due to the world. I'm very happy the world has had the amount of grind greatly reduced; I'll have to work back to it on another wizard to see if it's fun, now.

Lol, I like the concept, the Mobs being animals etc, it's really cool. Nice getaway, you know?

Before the update to tone it down. I really hated it. The most common message you would see there is;

"Did Not Collect X Item, Try Again!" Over, and over.

Don't get me wrong, I still see this message and just like Beggars, it won't go away, but at least I don't see it as often now (Post-Update)

Plus, it doesn't feel as long and draining as some of the other worlds.

The story line is awesome, the theme is awesome, and the mobs are not too hard and not too easy. The collecting quest problem has been nerfed so it isn't that annoying anymore and now the people who complain about the collecting quests are just exaggerating.

I've always liked the storyline of Zafaria - but not until recently have I liked the quests. When I first did Zafaria on my ice, it was super hard ( anyone who played it before the nerf knows how annoying the defeat and collects were ). But now, my second time doing it, on my storm I've enjoyed it, since its a bit easier.

I like zafaria even with all the collect quests. the only thing I don't like is battling other ice mobs but theres nothing I can do about that

Because mirror lake. You'll see a lot of people farming it for pixie sticks and other stuff.

Because the scenery is super pretty and so is the music. I really liked questing in Zafaria

I loved Zafaria from the moment I entered, those defeat and collect quests never bothered me and I managed to solo a good portion of the dungeons there.
It's the music, scenery, and the NPC's you meet that makes Zafaria one of my favorite worlds!

I like it because the KingsIsle programmers have somehow written code for the Mirror Lake battle that is able to modify the outcomes on the fly. It doesn't matter if I go in with 3 other wizards, or do it solo. The average battle is 26 minutes. It really doesn't matter. If I get a shadow pip right away, then I will get chain stunned. Or if not chain stunned, then I won't critical. And if I am in the battle with 3 other wizards, then nobody knows what day of the week it is, and it takes 26 minutes anyhow. The funny part is, that after 6 times each, I've reached the point where the average has stopped changing by more than a minute. The average solo battle is 0.22 minutes greater than with 4 wizards. That is some awesome programming!

I only like Zafaria because I like to fish for wands.

I think you should be asking why "most people DISLIKE Zafaria". Zafaria for the most part is mob quests, and there are very few mobs, so you wind up defeating the same creatures over and over and over.

To me Avalon has the best pace or mix between mob and boss battles, whereas Zafaria is just very tedious and slow paced.
