On the following morning after Liu Ying’s arrest, the campus was bustling with activities. News reporters were all over the school asking questions about Liu Ying’s illegal activities, man did he bring shame to his family!
I find it quite amusing as I sat in my room thinking about the past events. Even though in the eyes of the students at Liu Hua University, I may look like a coward and did not retaliate I know deep down that I got my revenge. No matter what they think of me, how they look at me, I don’t care one bit… What I do care about is that today is the first day of class!
Scratching my head as I look over my class schedule, I can’t even begin to know why Wang picked Chinese Literature?!?
In the morning I have two classes and from that I have two books that I have to read for classes… The first book is on Chinese Classical and the second book is on Meng Zi, a Chinese Philosopher… I hate Meng Zi, I hate Ji Xiaolan (Scholar)…
Walking along the campus path with Wan Er and Cheng Yue, I can see the ladies here at Liu Hua University dresses very proper and I can tell that their clothes most be very expensive. Expensive clothing is a necessity here at Liu Hua, it gives you the ability to show off how rich you are and the richer you are the higher your status will be. For me, enjoying this beautiful day with clouds above is more than enough, what would make it better is if I didn’t have to carry this stack of books…
Our first class is Chinese Classical, we entered into a large classroom that seats hundreds of people. Wan Er and Cheng Yue seems like they wanted to be good students so they picked to sit in the front of the class, I dare not object so I went along and sat next to them. The boys in the class then crowds one another to sit behind Wan Er and Cheng Yue so that they may take a peek at the rank 1 and 2 freshmen beauty of Liu Hua University.
I can feel the icy glare from the boys behind me who is envious that I got to sit next to Wan Er. What’s worse is that our professor have on a huge smile, believing that the students exceeding student’s enrollment is due to him being a great professor. Personally I believe it’s because beauty is what attracted these boys here to the class.
With my head prop on my hands I begin to day dream of my one true love, Destiny. Ah… how wasteful to be here in this classroom all afternoon instead of being in game…
Wan Er gently elbows me twice and smiled at me and the result of this action is that the professor decided to ask us a question: “For the first row students only, tell me what is Chinese Classical?”
I suddenly stood up and in a loud voice: “Is it poetry and paintings!”
The Prof. looked dumbfounded at me answer
Wan Er giggled and whispered to me: “Idiot, it’s the history of poets!”
I realized my mistake and sat back down, within a few minutes I fell back to sleep.
Whew! I somehow manage to survive the morning classes, ate lunch with Wan Er and Cheng Yue; now I’m back to my room, ready to get on my Healer Swordsman and continue on my journey!
I open my eyes to see the glorious Ba Huang City in front of me and I decided to check the rankings! Hmm.. Looks like I’m still Lv. 22 and Ba Huang City rank 1 player is still Yan Zhao Warrior who’s currently at Lv. 27! What a madman, he’s probably wanting to rush to be the first Lv. 40 so that he can acquire a new skill for his job. Word on the street is that at Lv. 40, you get a destructive skill that relates to your class and it would completely over power anyone below Lv. 40!
I look into my pet interface and see Baby Bobo peacefully napping, waiting for the time until I summon him out again. It shouldn’t be much of a problem now for someone to have a 97% excellence pet and with Bobo, my DPS (Damage Per Second) should pass that of a swordsman!
Repairing my equipment to brand new and preparing for the journey ahead, I checked to see what I should do first. Right now my Seven-Star Herb pills recovers 200 mana, a Lv. 4 pill can recover 300 mana, man what a big difference does that make!
Opening my skill list and search for Lv. 4 Alchemy recipe-
Icy Wind Pill: Recovers 300 mana, Icy Herbs x3, Seven-Star Herb x1, Alchemy furnace x2
Ah, Luckily I still have plenty of the Seven-Star Heb leftover from my last batch, the only recipe I need to obtain now is Icy Herbs. I went online to Destiny forum to search out where I could get my hands on the Icy Herb, within a minute I found a post that was related to the Icy Herb. It seems like North of Ba Huang City, in a dense forest cover with snow, a Lv. 22 Assassin stumble upon traces of the Icy Herb. However he could not find the Icy Herb itself anywhere. The place he last seen it was at Cold Wind Forest.
Opening my world map I begin to look for the Cold Wind Forest. It seems that it would take about an hour travel to reach this forest so I decided to buy a Ba Huang City Teleport Scroll so that I may save on time! I’m sure I can make that 1 gold back with this trip!
“Everything is ready! Time to set out on my adventure!”
With my trustworthy Bramble Thorn Sword next to me, I walk towards the exit of Ba Huang City. Ba Huang City can be said to be the most vicious and have the most PKers of the three cities. Outside I can see Humans, Undead, Wind Elves, Moon Elves, and Barbarians fighting to the death with each other. For me, the most important thing is leveling up and rushing to get my Alchemy up to Lv. 4 so that I could make a fortune!
With the Icy Herb in mind I begin my journey north to the Cold Wind Forest, ignoring all the small preys that I happen to bypass. Running for 30 minutes I finally came upon monsters that were higher level and much more dangerous. A System notification pop up on my screen warning me not to go farther due to the difference in Levels and that its dangerous.
A wave of my hand and a hexagram appear in front of me. Out came Baby Bobo, gleefully and cheerfully flapping his little wings around me. At Lv. 15 Bobo attack is at 291 and it’s what I will depend on for the success of this mission!
Continuing to move forward I came upon a damp and dark area that is surrounded by undead soldiers who restlessly pace back and forth. In their tattered armor and welding a bloody crossbow, I feel an ominous presence in them!
Slowly, but carefully I approach them to try and inspect them –
[Death Hunter] (ordinary monster)
Attack:? ? ?
Defense:? ? ?
Health:? ? ?
Skills:? ? ?
Description: Death Hunters, souls of human beings who died along the area of the Cold Wind Forest . They were unable to pass on to the afterlife so they stuck around the forest to kill any who dare trespass on their territory. Ba Huang City posted numerous bounties for these Death Hunter, but no one dare to hunt them.
Due to them being 5 levels ahead of me, I was unable to see how much their Attack and Defense was. That’s where the problem resides in, without knowledge of their Attack and Defense it will be hard to come up with a strategy to defeat these monsters. Good news is, a solo player who defeats monster who is 5 lvls higher can gain tons of exp! While a team who kills the same monster will have to share their experience which significantly decreases the exp.
I look on my shoulder to see Baby Bobo happily flapping his wings around me and I smiled. Ah, thank goodness I have you!
I pointed my fingers at the Death Hunter, “Attack!” with a lighting fast speed, Bobo flew straight to them! Wow, with a 4.5 stars in Agility and 97% excellence, Baby Bobo is friggin fast!
At first I didn’t like all the buzzing sound that Bobo made, but now it’s like angels singing to me! Bobo raised his stingers up and with that a hexagram appear on the chest of the Death Hunters. Bobo attacks 3 times, pricking the Death Hunter’s armor and with a “pop!” the Hunter’s armor was broken and blood squirted all over the ground!
I wasn’t too surprise that the damage is not as high as it should be due to Bobo being Lv. 15 only and the Death Hunter is at Lv. 27, still the damage is quite nice!
The Death Hunter raised his bow up preparing for an attack and with a loud “BOOM”, Bobo was shot with the crossbow which resulted in significant damages!
I was quite shock at the damage, but at the same time I quickly cast Heal on Bobo and drew my sword out, Sword Tempest activating. I rush towards the Death Hunter and with Bobo by my side, we were unstoppable!
After several near death experiences, we finally manage to beat our first Death Hunter!
A golden light fell upon Baby Bobo and he level up to 16. I added all his points to strength and I also felt my own experience increase by a lot!
Continuing to kill Death Hunters one after another for nearly 2 hours, I manage to gain 47 silver coins! At the same time, I level up to Lv.23 and Baby Bobo is now at Lv.20 with amazing stats!
[Baby Bobo] (King Bee)
Skills: [Batter LV-2] [Thrusting LV-2]
Note: King Bee Stats Calculations
Attack= Growth x 10 (0.97 + 1)(10 x (0.75 (Level (0.97 +1)))
Defense= Level x 5 (0.97 +1)
Health= Growth x 12.5 (0.97 +1)
Magic= Level x 5 (0.97 +1)
*Growth= Stars, Ex: Bobo’s Agility has 4.5 stars and Strength at 5 stars
So basically, Bobo maximum attack is at 388, defense at 194, health 485. Compare to other monster at his levels, his stats far surpasses theirs in comparison!
With Baby Bobo by my side happily flapping along, I continue on my journey in the forest. After awhile of walking I notice snow on the ground and a system notification pop up in front of me.
Notification: Please be aware that you have enter Cold Wind Forest!
I felt a cold chill, probably due to excitement or because of the cold, but it doesn’t matter because I finally arrived at Cold Wind Forest!!!
