Wizard101 Azteca Xibalba

   

“This is How the World Ends”

Azteca ends in Wizard101 fashion with a dungeon full of bosses.  Some wizards conquer Xibalba (she-ball-ba) with ease; yet others struggle.  The video below chronicles my adventure from the sigil through the ending of the quest-line at Ambrose.  Two leveling wizards, and an Ice as a ‘tank’ completed the dungeon in under an hour.  Xibalba contains 4 battles with the maximum enemy’s health in the 20-24,000 range.  It is possible to solo if you must.
 
 
 

Watch Out Chicken Little.  The Sky Shall Fall!

M-&-M

We are a thorn in Morganthe’s side, albeit a small one in her opinion.  We break 3 Obsidian Mirrors and use the razor-edged shards to slice her web barriers attempting to reach her.  We arrive too late.  Her ritual is complete and a comet blasts Azteca at her whim.  She escapes to her home Shadow Web to construct her Celestial Choir.  (Whatever that is. Hostages of her wonder powers it seems.)  She leaves an ‘Undying’ Mali to “deal with” us.  He is immune to our damage spells and furies in a black hole of rage.  We do not get the satisfaction of beating him in battle this time. In the end, he floats away on a chunk of Azteca.
 
 
 
 
 

Backpack, Backpack—What do I bring?

  • Wisps are available after every battle.  (Bring potions as back up. Hey, it never hurts to be prepared.)
  • Universal resist gear at a minimum.  These opponents have AoE spells and big Damage spells up to the new 10 pip Level 88 Spells.  I have used Waterworks gear on most wizards through Xilbalba and it has worked out. If you have a backpack equipped with different gear that includes higher resist, I would recommend changing into that over Waterworks. e.g. Jade gear or gear with greater resist to the schools in a particular battle.
  • Reshuffle, Pierce and Cleanse Charm treasure cards if those spells are not in your deck normally.
  • Multiple Feints whether they be from a pet, an amulet, your main deck, your treasure deck, or with Potent Trap added.  Feint is the best trap in the game.  In one turn you can add 2 or 3 different Feints to a boss maximizing your damage quickly.
  • Multiple blades: school blades, tri blades, pet blades, amulet blades, treasure versions if necessary, or Sharpened Blade to make more.
  • A helpful pet – healing and resist at least.  I didn’t have to heal at all because my pets did it for me.  A pet with Pierce Train could come in handy as well.
 
 

How fast can you set up to hit?  

Tank and Hammer Approach

My approach was a single AoE blast supported by multiple Feints and blades.  My ‘hammer’ was Ice, my ‘Tank’ was another Ice. Just like any other boss fight, minimize spells in deck, have a specific plan, and carry reshuffle in case your plan goes awry somehow with dirty tricks from the enemies.  Yanno, like an Earthquake -.-
 
Tip:
Stack Feints  from highest to lowest and blades from lowest to highest when you have options in your hand. Feint first when you are against an enemy with charm removing spells. (e.g. Enfeeble, Earthquake, Disarm, Leviathan, etc.)
 

Healing, Shields and Stun Block

These are not necessary if you are set up to resist damage.  There are wisps everywhere. You could shield and stun block, but why? It may not be necessary and you waste a turn putting it on. Perhaps a stun block on the tank first round during the battle with Yacate’s team due to the possibility of Medusa.  Otherwise, IF they stun you, they leave you with a stun shield.  Most likely you will not be in battle long enough for it to be an issue.  Speed rounds or bust!
 
 

Example of Set Up

Tailor the set up to your training.  Before entering make a plan. Know what everyone brings to the battle.  Only carry those spells in deck, so they come up immediately.   I choose wizards with the greatest resist & highest health as the ‘tank‘ and the wiz with the greatest possibility for damage as the ‘hammer.’  If more friends join, they can build up the ‘hammer’ and you all can benefit from a faster trip.

 
‘Hammer’
    • School Blade
    • Amulet Blade
    • Sharpened School Blade
    • Azteca Star Aura
    • Colossal AoE Spell
    • Gear boosted for damage and resist
    • Calculator: Damage will be one hit. (Don’t miss!)
‘Tank’
  • Send tank in first turn alone to take brunt of hits
  • Regular Feint
  • Sharpened Tri Blades
  • Hammer’s field spell (Balefrost, Windstorm, Time of Legend, etc.)
  • Highest possible resist gear 
  • Cleanse Charm and Pierce in side deck
Supporting Wizards
  • Pet Feint
  • Amulet Feint
  • Tri Blades
  • Pet blade

    This is probably the most epic video guide I’ve ever seen. Amazing work, Heather!

      Agreed, Heather makes the most entertaining Wiz videos. It’s way more fun watching her dominate this dungeon with all her tips & tricks than playing it myself.

      Thanks so much you guys! I’m so glad they entertain :) Learn a little while having fun is the best way imo.

    You got lucky during your run. When I was soloing it I was up against 3 grim calacas >.>

    • http://duelist101.com/ Heather Shadowslinger

      Luckily, you can always start the dungeon over if you have issues :)

  • pvp master

    I don’t understand why Malistare just died the turn after you killed his minions. Can someone please explain this?

    • Monarch

      He doesn’t die, he is just thrown out from a sudden quake or whatever. My bets are he will be back, more stronger then Morganthe.

    • http://duelist101.com/ Heather Shadowslinger

      It’s really weird isn’t it. Every time you hit him it equals zero. So the first time you are there, you wonder, “How am I going to finish him if I don’t do any damage?”
      Then he twirls away. Then, due to the meteor, the ground shakes and he rides off on a chunk of rock.

  • Ralph

    The Celestian Choir is part of her ritual to resing the song of creation, the song in which scholars believe theurigists breath to cast spells. With that, she is able to reshape the spiral in her image.

  • Jeremy ShadowWraith

    Amazing video. Can you make one for the Tower of the Helephant as well?

  • Cameron Dragon shield

    wow! Malistaire turned into some kind of incredible beast! I wonder how.

  • Gem Wizards

    I had read that KI nerfed AV & AZ. Just wondering if this dungeon has changed? I heard it was very hard and took a long time.

  • Luke

    Lol on the mention of the Xibalba, there is this quest in Twin giants I think its called Its the End of the World as We Know It, ton of references to end of world, but this guy in a quest near it says once you beat him its the end of the world as we know it and I feel … fine. Funny

  • dragonwrath

  • antonio stormhero
