A vortex of black flames consume a group of players. 3 wind spirit mages, and a human musketeer fall at the same time. All of them had 500 points of damage dealt to them. Mage Bi Ke’s attack is far too strong!
“Careful!” Liu Ying shouts and activates his combo. “These black flames have a cooldown of 15 seconds, ranged people be careful!”
Before he even finished, Mage Bi Ke raises his staff high, and yells, “I look upon the doors of eternal life. Guardian of hell, show your fierce fangs, and let the world know of it’s bite——
I, Bi Ke, summon【Hellhound】!”
A black hexagram swirls, and a blood-red head pokes out of it. Following the head comes blood-red claws. A Hellhound, about the size of a large lion. As soon as it appeared, it clawed at two of the monks from [Wrath of the Heroes]. Pupu The strikes were extremely quick, and the monks fall without a sound.
The Hellhound’s attack are very aggressive, the attacks are undoubtedly the bane of melee players!
Yan Suo goes in, reveals her dagger, and when she successfully landed an stun, she yells, “The Hellhound only has 4000 HP, kill it quickly, or else everyone will die! Ranged attackers, change targets!”
Some wind magic starts to stir up, and from afar, a few musketeers kneel down. A strong gunpowder smell spreads, then many bang sounds can be heard. All the musketeers fire, and the HP of the Hellhounds quickly pummels, and when another barrage comes, it gets killed!
The boss uses his flame attack every 15 seconds, and summons a Hellhound every 60 seconds. After understanding this pattern, Liu Ying’s group had an easier time fighting him.
Slowly but surely, the Mage’s HP is under 20%. Liu Ying’s face also slowly becomes relaxed, and shows a smile, “Haha, if this goes on for a few more rotations, we can finish the boss off!”
Piggy aims his gun, and says, “We should still be a bit more cautious. Our group has lost 50% of it’s original force, and two teams of 10 are almost wiped out…”
Liu Ying nods to that, “Mm, we should be able to kill this boss after 2 minutes or so. Those who died come and quickly revive. Everyone be more serious and finish off this boss, it may even drop a gold-ranked equipment! At that time, us at [Wrath of the Heroes] will be supreme in Ba Huang City!”
I hold my ancient spear, and look from a distance in my soul form. I clench my teeth. I can’t revive right now, do I just look at them while they successfully kill off that mage?
At this time, the tables suddenly turn.
A sad yell, one swordsman is killed by the Hellhound. Liu Ying’s eyes go red, “Tch, how’d that happen?! Healers do your job! Use [Heal]! And…mages! Freeze the Hell Hounds, don’t let them get away!”
Behind him, a healer’s face goes pale, “Boss, I’m already out of mana. Level 3 [Heal] uses 30 MP, I only have 20 now, and my pills on cooldown!”
A few other mages also clench their teeth, “Our mana pool is almost dry as well…”
“Tch!” Liu Ying seems extremely angry, “Didn’t you guys say that you would be able to endure drawn out battles? Why can [Prague] kill gold-ranked bosses while we can’t? You’re all garbage!!”
On the side, Yan Suo says, “I hear that [Prague] uses level 4 [Chilling Wind Pills] to recover mana. We are using level 3 [Seven-Star Pills], there’s a difference of 33% in mana recovery…”
Liu Ying bellows, “I don’t care about the casualties! We go all in! The HP of the boss is nearly in critical condition. Who cares if we all die? As long as we kill off the boss, it will be our victory! Tell the 3 people who are guarding outside, come in! ”
“We don’t need to guard over Xiao Yao’s corpse?” Piggy asks surprised.
Liu Ying laughs coldly, “It’s been 5 hours, why the hell are we still guarding him? This Li Xiao Yao bastard probably already went to bed. Why would he spend all that time in his soul form just looking at us?“
I hold my ancient spear, and my heart is hammering inside my chest. I immediately run up to the 3rd level, and when the 3 people from [Wrath of the Heroes] enter the 4th floor, I go and revive!
My real body appears at the 3rd level, and at the same time I cast [Hemostasis] on myself to recover my HP, and I quickly swallow a [Chilling Wind Pill] to get myself back to my best condition, or full mana. I call Baby Bobo out, ready my spear, and head towards the 4th floor. Hehe, the time for revenge has come. Revenge, cannot wait a single night, so before the sun comes out, I’ll kill all of these guys off!
Entering the 4th floor, I see that the predators have become the prey! Without the support of the ranged attacks, the 2 Hellhounds that the mage summoned were not killed in time, rather the vicious Hellhounds were going around and killing everyone else! The ranged and melee attackers of [Wrath of the Heroes] fall like the grass, the end of the battle is near!
I look closely at the HP of the boss. It is almost at 3%, its almost over!
Next to Liu Ying, only 4 members of [Wrath of the Heroes] remain, the rest are all dead!
The assassin Wind Chaser screams, and becomes a pile of ashes after taking the flame attack by the mage. Yan Suo looks behind her, at the remains of Wind Chaser, and sees me! She’s yells “Oh god!”
“What’s wrong?” Liu Ying turns around as well, and his face goes completely green, “Damn! He…He’s still here!”
Piggy runs while holding his gun, “What do we do?”
“The boss only has around 3% HP left, so we need to dodge Xiao Yao’s attacks, and concentrate on the boss and finish him off. As long as we get the last hit, we will be victorious!” Liu Ying’s full attention is locked on the mage, smart but he’s underestimating me.
I take my ancient spear and stab at Piggy’s shoulders. A damage message of 189 pops up.
He quickly retreats, but my speed isn’t slow. I swing my spear towards him from an awkward angle, and hit the retreating Piggy.His HP is nearly gone.
With my third attack, Piggy lowers the gun in his hands, and while dying he sighs, “Actually, we should have never angered this Xiao Yao person…”
In a flash of light, Piggy becomes a corpse, and only Liu Ying and Ageless are left on the battlefield. I was too lazy to kill them, so I wave my hand, and cast [Heal] on the boss!
After the flash of light, Liu Ying’s face becomes as purple as an eggplant, “You…Xiao Yao Zi Zai you bastard! There is no one in the world who is more shameless than you! Who in the world heals the boss…”
Before he gets to finish his sentence, the mouth of a Hellhound devourers Tyrant of Western Chu’s head!
On the other side, black flames come roaring down, and Ageless is forced to kneel on the ground. Her beautiful face gets cooked to a crisp black, and while her head is smoking, she stares at me, and falls with a surprised face.
Bobo starts attacking the boss, and lands a triple hit combo on the boss. I quickly react to the situation, and dodge the Hellhound’s attack. The remaining HP on the boss is less than 500. Ha, I came in at the right time!
I stab with my ancient spear, and it shatters the heart of the mage!
Finally, the last thread of HP from boss dissappears.
A ray of golden light falls upon me, and I rise to level 26. The experience that this gold-ranked boss gives is quite plentiful!
Following the death of the mage, the two remaining Hell Hounds also disappear with him. The thing that is most exciting though, is the items that the mage dropped. Within the multiple equipment that the mage dropped, I see a golden light enveloping a long sword. Nice. The sword reaches my hand, and it’s…a gold-rank equipment?! Is it?
I quickly rush up and gather all the drops in one swipe. At the same time, I hear a ding next to my ear——
System Notification: You have received the first gold-rank equipment——[Jade City Sword], would you like to reveal personal information?
I instantly chose the option that hides my name. Instantly, a ring can be heard throughout Ba Huang City’s skies——
System Notification: Player XXXX has received the first ever gold-ranked equipment ——[Jade City Sword]! As a reward, the player will gain +3 charm, +5000 experience points, and 100 gold coins!
Waa~ Gold coins, 100 pieces!
My mouth is unable to close from all the excitement, this reward is really good! <<Destiny>>’s company is indeed very generous, giving me free money!
I collect all the equipment, and also grab the death medicine behind the fallen mage. As I spin around, I notice a few glows from far away. The players from [Wrath of the Heroes] are starting to revive!
Time to bail! I am a red-named player right now, if I die, I will drop equipment. I don’t care if I drop all my items, but I cannot drop my [Jade City Sword]!
I take out my city return scroll and start to use it, but I get a message: “You are a red-named player right now, so you cannot be send back to your main city currently. But, you can be transported to the nearby [Tower of Repent]. (Within the [Tower of Repent], every hour online will reduce your sin points by 30.)”
I confirm, and I bail!
In the amazed eyes of the [Wrath of the Heroes] members, I leave before they can even start to move on me, and I leave this cursed place. Suddenly, my view darkens before revealing a old brick wall. I was stuck in a jail cell on a medieval tower! I can only see past some iron bars. I see forests and swamps, and also birds chirping, butterflies flying.What a good place to go, sadly I can’t leave.
Confirming that the area is a safe zone, I open my bag to check my spoils. [Jade City Sword], the sword with the golden glow is in my hands. When I hold it, a surge of strength enter my body. I wave my hand, and the stats of the long sword appear in front of me. My lord, these stats. This is the godly equipment that I want~
【Jade City’s Sword】（Gold-rank equipment）
-Increases attack damage by 3%
-Ignores 1% of the target’s defense
Description: In ancient days, Jade City hanged in the horizon. Strong people from all over the continent came to Jade City and found a godly weapon in Jade City, and that is this Jade City’s Sword. According to rumours it contains godly powers that can split mountains and destroy boulders.
Level requirement: 30
Level 30 gold-rank equipment, the attack damage on this is… incredible!
I am extremely excited, but I put the sword back in my bag. I’ll put this away for now and wait until I reach level 30, I’ll use it then!
Then, I take out the remaining two pieces of equipment, both of which dropped from the gold-ranked boss. But the difference between these items and the sword is astonishing. There was one green-ranked leather wrist protector, one green-ranked leather helmet. I can use neither, so I put that aside as well, and when I return to Ba Huang City to sell it off, I should get quite a bit of gold coins.
Looking at the time, it is 6 am in the morning. Morning classes start at 8, so I wake up at prepare at 7. I’ll stay in the [Tower of Repent] for a while, and after I revert back to a white-name I’ll go and face the world with a smile!
But I don’t just sit around doing nothing. Holding Jade City Sword (Doesn’t give any bonus’), and I stab and slash through the air. I continue to practice my new combo, which is a stab+slash+hack+ram+slash combo, 5 continuous strikes! I repeatedly practice it. But sadly no custom skill is created. Whatever, it’s no big deal, I can take it slowly, I have plenty of time!
