In the midst of fighting, General Bai Qi felt the touch of a cold dagger edge striking at his throat. With a look of dismay, he realize that there was an Assassin attacking him under [Stealth]! When the Assassin came out of her [Stealth], it revealed the beautiful deputy chief of Prague – Yue Qing Qian. This beautiful Assassin move with such grace and swiftness while attacking with her Blood Dagger that General Bai Qi didn’t have a chance to counter attack!
Boots stomping on the grass as the moon light shines over this bloody battlefield, a pair of beautiful eyes glanced around, wary of her surroundings. Bai Qi uttered out loud “Damn it!” as he notice the concentration of energy where she slash him, it was a skill that was going to detonate and deal him critical damage – [Impact Lv.3]
Withstanding the attack, General Bai Qi turned around quickly to counter attack. However, Yue Qing Qian is already a step ahead with her Blood Dagger out using [Backstab] to increase her damage by 30%; aim for Bai Qi’s head and dealt a heavy blow of 289 points, thus felling General Bai Qi.
“Damn it, Bai Qi is dead!”
Not too far away, General Wang Jian came rushing at Yue Qing Qian with his sword out slashing at her. Due to the surprise attack, Qing Qian was not able to parry the attack and took on some damages.
Taking the attack head on, Qing Qian decides to retreat to safer grounds. However Wang Jian chases after her, with his sword raise and two golden hexagram appearing; it was the beginning of a [Combo]!
“Heal me quick!”
Yue Qing Qian quickly put the Blood Dagger up to block the attack as much as she could while two or three [Hemostasis] was cast on her, recovering 300+ Health.
Yue Qing Qian continues retreating, her cloak fluttering behind her in the moonlight while General Wang Jian continues his pursuit. Wang Jian, a 20 year old youth wore a solemn expression on his face because he did not want to kill this beautiful Assassin. However, loyalty to the guild dictates his action and he must do what is necessary to benefit the guild.
Wang Jian finally caught up to Yue Qing Qian and took this chance to once again use his [Combo]. As he was beginning to raise his sword to attack, Qing Qian stopped and turn to face him.
She had disappear and reappear right behind him, a critical attack to his back causing 250+ damages! Qing Qian followed up with two continuous slashes with her Dagger to deal another 180+ points of damages.
“No, you die!”
Wang Jian immediately jump away from Qing Qian and uses a HP Potion. Agitated , he once again came rushing at Yue Qing Qian, but this time behind him appeared Wei Liang! The odds of defeating two Assassins as a Swordsman was too low. Wang Jian decided to retreat and ran downhill to his guild.
Standing on the hillside, two beautiful Assassins stood side by side. Their appearance were strikingly similar, even their equipments looks the same! Long hair fluttering in the wind, white skin, and dangerously beautiful. How is it that they look so similar… it must be because they are twins!
Lv. 26 Assassin – Yue Qing Qian
Lv. 26 Assassin – Wei Liang
Laying here in the grass staring at the beautiful figures in the distance: “So Yue Qing Qian had a twin sister huh…”. Having twin Assassins can be advantageous to a guild; where did Yan Zhao Warrior meet these two…
At this point of the battle, the fighting had intensify greatly in the valley. General Li Mu tactics of having his Archers targeting Prague Healers was a success, crippling the forces of Prague. Although Yan Zhao Warrior strength exceeds many of the soldiers here, he couldn’t continue to fight without Healers: “I need a couple of you to follow me and kill the archers!”
In the midst of fighting, one of the soldiers told General Li Mu that Yan Zhao Warrior is heading towards General Lian and his group of Archers!
Lv. 25 Archer – General Lian, a 50 year old veteran just like Yan Zhao Warrior. Both highly experienced fighters, they won’t be coming out of this battle unscratched!
Boots trampling on the grass, General Lian notice Yan Zhao charging at him. Lian jumps back, pulled on his bow string and uses his skill, [Meteor Shot]. Yan Zhao Warrior took the attack head on, his Health instantly dropped lower than 50%!
Finally closing the distance between them, Yan Zhao attacks Lian with a punch to the shoulder, “BANG”. Lian loses his balance and Yan Zhao uses this opportunity to activate his skill. A golden hexagram appear under Yan Zhao’s feet, he’s using his special 5 hit combo [Warrior’s Strike]!
Lian looked calm and actually smiled, he had already prepare for the worst by taking advantage of the terrain. By voluntarily falling backwards, he rolled down the hillside away from Yan Zhao’s deadly 5 hit combo.
A series of 5 MISS appear in front of Yan Zhao, clenching his fist: “Cunning bastard…”
Behind Yan Zhao, he could feel the swing of a sword getting ready to make impact with his body. He quickly turn to face none other than the Rank 2 of Ba Huang City, General Li Mu! His whole guild will be here soon and the strongest of them, Li Mu, is the biggest threat!
Raising his sword up, a golden hexagram appear in front of Yan Zhao’s chest. Li Mu uses [Batter Lv.3]!
Yan Zhao Warrior knees buckled due to the strong impact, taking this chance Li Mu knee him in the chest. Yan Zhao notice a great opportunity at this time and swipe his sword across Li Mu’s neck, landing a critical hit!
Li Mu was not at full HP so with this fatal blow his Health drop to 0… Yan Zhao had succeeded in defeating General Li Mu.
Yan Zhao Warrior took in a deep breath, pulled out his HP potion and was getting ready to drink it when suddenly two arrows struck him in the chest… Down below, General Lian smiled viciously as he saw Yan Zhao fell to his knees and died. Lian climb up the hill to retrieve an item that Yan Zhao had drop, it was a Lv. 22 Sword (Bronze).
Looking over to where the BOSS was, there were five people from General Li Mu guild fighting the Undead Overlord, which had 5% HP left. The only surviving members of Prague were Yue Qing Qian and Wei Liang; using [Stealth], they waited patiently to get the last hit on the BOSS.
I continue to lay here in the grass, nervously and excitedly waiting to see who comes out victorious.
“Make sure we get the last hit on the BOSS, there may be Prague members still alive!” General Lian is a cautions man… Lian pulls the string back on his longbow and using his Archer skill [Powerful Shot], fires at the Undead Overlord’s neck.
Looking at the Undead Overlord’s HP, now would be a good time for Yue Qing Qian to deal the final hit right?
Just when I had said that, one of the Healers fell to his knee as 552 points of damage floats across his dead body. General Lian turns to see Wei Jiang targeting the other members of his guild and started to unleash his arrows in a frenzy! But Wei Jiang is too far and too fast for him to get a hit on her, making him feel very frustrated.
Taking this commotion as a perfect opportunity, Yue Qing Qian rushes to the Undead Overlord. Taking out her Blood Daggers, Qing Qian aim straight for the Undead Overlord’s heart, piercing his chest and running it through to his heart! The Undead Overlord roars out in pain as he fell to his knees and died, dropping multiple treasures!
“Go pick up the treasures!” General Wang Jian roar
Unfortunately, the speed of an Assassin surpasses that of a Swordsman as Yue Qing Qian quickly picked up three equipments. Qin Qian runs to her sister We Liang: “Sister, lets retreat we can’t win 2v5!”
Wei Liang stood still: “Qing Qian, go on ahead I will stay here to give you some time to escape…”
Yue Qing Qian hesitated, but she knew it would be meaningless to die here and drop the equipments her whole guild worked for. As Qing Qian escape up the slope, Wei Jiang rushes towards General Lian. Using the Assassin specialty skill [Backstab], Wei Jiang disappears and reappears behind Lian and dealt him a critical blow to his back. Lian died from the impact, no Healer could had use Heal on him in time.
Wang Jian screamed out: “I will go for the Assassin that have the equipments, the rest of you take care of this one!”
As Wei Liang was busy defending herself from the attack of a Berserker, underneath her feet the earth split open and rock spikes shot up. That’s the Lv. 20 Mage skill [Rock Spike]! 5 meters away from Wei Liang, I can see a Lv. 24 Mage. He must have been the one that cast it and kill Wei Liang.
Near the slopes were I was hiding, I can see Yue Qing Qian painfully running up. Her legs had multiple cuts, but she refused to stop and kept running. Due to Qing Qian’s leg injury, Wang Jiang was able to catch up. Using Lv.3 [Wind Walk] which increase attack speed by 6% and movement speed by 3%, Wang Jian closed the distance between them. The Lv. 24 Mage is also heading towards them after defeating Wei Liang.
“Damn…” Yue Qing Qian knew the odds of escaping or fighting them was extremely low and even though she have a city teleport scroll, it would take 5 seconds to use… enough for Wang Jian to kill her twice! From Wang Jiang’s shoulder, he command his pet Hornet to engage Yue Qing Qian.
Wang Jian didn’t waste any time to raise his blade up and swung his sword
Qing Qian continues to fall back, but her movement speed was reduce from a [Slow] status effect. While at this time, the Mage is closing in on the battle.
Yue Qing Qian’s equipments are top tier type which probably gives her good health and defense, but she will soon die if she continues to take on heavy damages!
My heart aches as I lay here in the grass gripping my Ancient Spear tightly. I live and uphold the principle of not meddling in other people’s business, but … Yue Qing Qian said that we are friends and I always help out my friends!
The least I could do is to Heal her, but I don’t have to attack!
Raising a single hand up, [Heal]!
At this moment, there was a full moon shinning bright over head, Qing Qian’s facial expression was that of pure relief and confusion: “How…?”
Wang Jian’s eyes immediately dart over to my direction, furious: “Shit! They still have a Healer!”
Yue Qing Qian took this time to act immediately, bringing out her Blood Dagger she rushed over to the Mage. The Mage notice that Qing Qian is rushing over and started enchanting a spell, gathering a large fire. Instantly I realize that it was a trap and tried to warn her!
It was too late, Yue Qing Qian had slain the Mage, but with it she was afflicted with [Scorch]. I could stop the flames from damaging her, but as soon as I got up I was greeted by Wang Jian… With pure anger in his voice: “Aren’t you Xiao Yao, do you wish to die?!?”
