Mexico District 9: Chiapas

Share:

District 9 of Mexico is called Chiapas. It unlocks once you master the bronze level of District 8. There are only 2 jobs in the district that don’t require currency or a consumable and the ratios of those 2 jobs are nothing to get excited about. Zynga seems to have stepped up the level of difficulty as the mastery percentages overall are lower than in previous districts. This makes the currency and consumable requirements higher. The energy requirements are also pretty steep. A walkthrough is provided below.

There are 10 jobs but only 5 job images. The story line for District 9 pretty much mirrors the others. Someone takes something that isn’t theirs and the one they take it from gets upset and wants revenge. This time it’s gold underneath 2 mines and like always there is some double crossing going on.

The consumables of District 8 are the Metal Detective and the Drill Rod. They can be farmed in jobs 2 and 6 respectively . The Metal Detective is required for jobs 3 and 5 and the Drill Rod is required for jobs and are required for jobs 7, 9 and 10. All jobs needing a consumable require 1 per click.

Here are the requirements and payouts for the District. Only the currency requirements and ratios for the ruby level are shown. The jobs that produce consumables are indicated by a check-mark. The total number needed to master the district are in the bottom row. Using Crew Bonuses, 2X Mastery Boosts , Job Help requests and Diablo Mode strategically will drastically lower the number. Currency payouts for jobs is not shown because it’s based on class and all accounts will not be the same. As mentioned above there are only 2 jobs that don't require currency or a consumable and those are highlighted.

Jobs also require equipment items which can be purchased from the popup on the job page, the Mexico City Store or the inventory window. Item costs are not the same for all accounts because it depends on the status of the Abelha Helicopter which is the Brazil District 4 mastery item and grants up to a 10% discount on City Store items from any destination. The Veloci-dad is the Mexico District 5 mastery item and grants up to a 12% discount on Mexico City Store items only. Both items apply discounts to the original cost only and are not stacked.

The required number of items is the same for all accounts and only the costs vary. You can sell items used in previous districts if you are low on currency. Selling items grants 50% of the original value. The account used for the images below has both a ruby level Abelha Helicopter and Veloci-dad.

There are 5 loot items which job randomly while doing jobs. The stats are a little more useful than what we’ve seen with previous districts in Mexico but like with all loot they won’t hold for very long. The days of farming loot for strength purposes are long gone in this game.

The boss of District 9 is Hugo Minero. These boss fights are just like the other 8 in Mexico. Players will always ask about combos and the details on how to figure them out are in the links below. The rewards are also the same and include a variety of consumables, boosts, property parts, currency and skill points.

The collection for District 9 is the Rico Minerals Collection. Items drop randomly while doing jobs or they can be accepted as gifts. You get +35 stamina points for vaulting it. d9collection

The mastery item for District 9 is the is the Urbane. There are 4 levels of mastery but you only get to keep the item with the highest stats. The special ability of this item is 10, 20, 30 or 40 second reduction of the energy regeneration timer. We are very far into Mafia Wars for this to have any value as far as strategy is concerned. I don’t know any players who rely on the regeneration timers to keep playing. There are way to many instant bonuses in the game for this ability to have any strategic value [1]. It sounds cool but Zynga knows exactly what they are doing. Why offer something useful when you can offer crap and make it sound useful? Upon mastery of each level you also get 1 Vault Door. Districts 1-5 supply enough Vault Doors to fully upgrade the bank. Any achieved after 20 are just extras and will waste away in your inventory.
d9bronzemastery m1 d9silvermastery m2 d9goldmastery m3 d9rubymastery m4District 9 brings 2 new items of spam.  These items only appear if you select the Game News Feed option. They won’t appear in your regular news feeds or even the Mafia Wars filtered feeds. The Game News Feeds also includes every game that your Facebook friends play so if you only want to see Mafia Wars spam and requests you will need to block the other games as they appear.
