“You’re simply going too far!” Big Brother looked at his good brother, who had been sliced in half in one slash and thrown into the Plague Cauldron. His whole body shivered from anger. “50 silver coins! Although we are new players, or maybe cannon fodders, the price of our lives is not as low as only 50 silver coins.”
Eighteen Massacres laughed coldly. “50 silver coins is already your worth! Don’t refuse a toast only to be forced to drink a forfeit. This is better though. Since you don’t want to accept my reward, then I’ll save a sum of money!”
Clink! Clink! Clink!
The Seven Style Spear transformed into a long whip and was lashed at Big Brother, wanting to throw him down! Eighteen Massacres’ attack was enough to instantly kill the two newbies, who were not even at level 20, at least, 10 times!
Eighteen Massacres’ demand was too insulting, too overboard!
‘F*ck!’ Big Brother would rather die with honor than live with disgrace!
Big Brother pointed at Eighteen Massacres’ nose and shouted angrily, “You think we are all idiots and don’t notice that the equipment you gave us is the worst even amongst trash? If it was not for Sky Provisions Shop, which takes care of us, new players, these items would be unsellable! Since you treat us like dirt, then don’t blame my disloyalty! Xiaoqi, attack!”
The two new players, who were only level 20 and wore Bronze equipment, actually charged towards Eighteen Massacres ferociously. They did not even use skills and just pounced on him.
A shred of disdain flashed in Eighteen Massacres’ eyes. He stepped back and easily dodged the attacks. His Seven Style Spear transformed into a curved whip and easily tied them up.
When the Seven Style Spear transformed, its attributes would change accordingly. The effects of 20% Chance Enhancement to Binding of the curved whip was enlarged infinitely when fighting with two new players. Eighteen Massacres easily tied them up and wanted to throw them into the cauldron.
At that moment, frost appeared in the air!
Cold ice strobed on the surface of Broken Blade while Ice Spirit Slash was already closing in on Eighteen Massacres. Lin Jie had hidden within the fog for a long time, and he had finally found the perfect chance to attack. He froze Eighteen Massacres’ body in a slash and dealt 567 points of damage!
Lin Jie was surprised. ‘Such high Defense!’
The Felomitz Magnetic Stone Armor’s quality was very high, and two types of ores had already been engraved within it, so its attributes were comparable to the Kiara Beast King Armor.
Meanwhile, Eighteen Massacres was even more astonished. ‘What damage is this!?’
He originally thought that after obtaining a high-level Dark Gold armor, there would be few that could break his defense. However, he had never thought that such a thing could happen!
“Continue controlling, Outraged Roar!”
Lin Jie roared and stunned Eighteen Massacres again. Then, he used the combo of Army Obliteration after Shield Cut to directly pierce into his chest. Metallic collision sounds could be heard, and Eighteen Massacres was knocked back quite a few steps. The two new players also dropped down.
Suddenly, Big Brother shouted, “No matter what you do, don’t reduce his HP below 20%! Throw him down! The Plague Cauldron is almost the same as magma, it can instantly kill someone!”
Eighteen Massacres was a player that had accepted the villain’s mission, so if his life was in danger, he could summon Deathbringer!
Deathbringer was a level 40 Gold Boss, and this was the key moment of the battle. No one would be able to endure the situation where one’s opponent suddenly received the help of a level 40 Gold Boss.
Lin Jie eyes gleamed, and he immediately changed his strategy. He used his Broken Blade to attack consecutively and knock Eighteen Massacres back, step by step. In this period of time, Eighteen Massacres could definitely not be belittled. With every attack, the armor on Eighteen Massacres would get thicker by a layer, and red light could be constantly seen from his palm. Anyone could tell that he was preparing to release something big.
“Fall into the cauldron!”
“You wish! Body of Night’s King!”
At the last attack, when Lin Jie was about to succeed, the red light on Eighteen Massacres’ palm suddenly darkened and exploded violently. A pair of black wings burst out from the behind Eighteen Massacres! Not only so, but vague shadows, in the shape of a throne, also appeared. Eighteen Massacres’ body trembled, and he became immune to Lin Jie’s Repel attack!
—Battle prompt message: Eighteen Massacres used the skill [Body of Night’s King]. Movement Speed increases by 40%, Attack Speed increases by 40%, Defense increases by 15%, and an additional effect of 25% Immunity Repel, and Speed Decrease is bestowed.
“F*ck!” cursed Lin Jie. He had never expected the skill of Dark Wings to have evolved.
“Hahahaha, you never expected this, right? It’s all thanks to the blade!” Eighteen Massacres’ eyes turned cold, and his Seven Style Spear gradually transformed—it actually turned into the shape of Broken Blade! However, the appearance may be similar, but the difference in the attributes was vast. In the next second, a black blade cut through the air and swirled before being inserted into the Seven Style Broken Blade with a cling.
“Army Obliteration!” shouted Eighteen Massacres loudly. He actually used Army Obliteration to pierce towards Lin Jie!
Lin Jie’s pupils constricted, and he instantly used Army Obliteration too. The two swords collided, and sparks from the collision flew everywhere, lighting up the Tower of Plague as though it was daytime.
Eighteen Massacres’ Army Obliteration only had three sword strikes, but Lin Jie’s one had a total of four. Eighteen Massacres was unable to defend himself! Also, Lin Jie’s equipment was much better than Eighteen Massacres’, so even if the latter used some strange skills, he was unable to compensate for that difference at all!
The first three swords strikes were nullified as they collided with Eighteen Massacres’ attack, but that last attack was real and solid. Eighteen Massacres’ health points decreased to 7% instantly!
‘F*ck! His HP is lower than 20%!’ Lin Jie panicked. He wanted to continue attacking and force him into the cauldron.
Eighteen Massacres stared at Lin Jie and shouted, “Lone Wolf, in the end, I’m still weaker than you. I thought that after obtaining the armor, coupled with Night King’s Body that was enhanced by Dark Blade, I would be able to kill you. It looks like this isn’t enough… However, you are doomed now! This is the Tower of Plague, my turf! Deathbringer, come out!
The Plague Cauldron was bubbling as an enormous monster made of bones emerged from within. Besides the basic skeletal structure, a large number of skulls was stuffed within its bones. That was Deathbringer, the level 40 Gold Boss!
Eighteen Massacres smiled coldly. A black ray of light shone above Deathbringer and sucked it into Eighteen Massacres’ body. His health points instantly regenerated back to full health! Deathbringer could be absorbed by players of the same side and become something like an additional equipment-type, which belonged to warring-type Undead Creatures!
Densely concentrated skeletons and bones protruded out of Eighteen Massacres, covering all of his body, head, and face! His Defense increased by 500 points, Attack Power increased by 150 points while Damage Reflect received a 25% increase. He also obtained the additional effect of level 5 Cone Bone Spur, which dealt 45% additional Darkness damage to a target for that attack.
As a price, Eighteen Massacres’ Movement Speed decreased by 60%.
Lin Jie slashed out, releasing Blade Aura. It whirled and slit the Deathbringer. It left a shallow hole on the bone before disappearing in the blink of an eye.
“Hahahahaha! I have thousands of Defense! How can you fight against me? Your attack is just like a mayfly trying to shake a tree—futile!” Eighteen Massacres threw his head back and roared with laughter.
An idea flashed in Lin Jie’s mind, and Silent Killer landed in his hands. The gun muzzle spurt out flames and the bullets shot into Eighteen Massacres’ chest in an instant.
Even with Silent Killer’s powerful Armor Penetration ability, the damage dealt to Eighteen Massacres was still negligible. Eighteen Massacres was right, this was his turf! The high defense ability enhanced by Deathbringer turned Eighteen Massacres into a god of war. In addition to his Immortal Body, within the Tower of Plague, it was simply impossible to kill him.
Lin Jie immediately moved his body, reloaded the gun, and continued attacking! Eighteen Massacres had basically lost his ability to attack Lin Jie due to his extremely slow Movement Speed and turning speed, which allowed him to obtain powerful Defense.
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
Another five shots were fired, which made Eighteen Massacres retreat a few steps. He glared at Lin Jie ferociously, and his Seven Style Spear transformed into a bow and arrow, which shot towards Lin Jie fiercely! However, how could the firing speed of the bow be compared to a Fire Gun? Lin Jie rolled on the ground, using basic movements to dodge the arrow and fired another five shots towards Eighteen Massacres.
Eighteen Massacres’ health points had already decreased by a little less than half!
Lin Jie’s attacking frequency was extremely steady. Although the compatibility of a Warrior and Fire Gun was not high, the five consecutive gunshots from Silent Killer still compensated for Lin Jie’s weakness largely. Just when Lin Jie wanted to attack, he actually shook his hand, which held Silent Killer, and the bullets’ trajectory changed by his action. They collided two by two, blocking each other, each bullet shooting towards Eighteen Massacres in an extremely organized manner.
“Flick!” Eighteen Massacres turned pale from shock. That was the technique only high-end Hunters would grasp—one would not be able to grasp such an impressive technique without playing the game for at least a few years. Hunters were able to use Flick (Bow or Fire Gun) to control the direction and trajectory of arrows and bullets, which increased one’s explosion of strength.
Eighteen Massacres was experienced and knowledgeable, but the number of Hunters who could use the Flick technique could be counted in one hand. However, Lin Jie was a Warrior!
‘WTF is this!?’
The sounds from the collision of bullets became extremely rhythmic. Originally Eighteen Massacres was still able to attack Lin Jie when he reloaded his bullets, but now, Eighteen Massacres’ hands were full just from dodging Lin Jie’s attacks! The Continuous Silence effect, which Silent Killer had, made Eighteen Massacres suffer painfully.
Now, Eighteen Massacres’ body could be compared to that of extremely clumsy Giants. Besides dodging, there was nothing else he could do!
“Good, very good, you have completely angered me! Originally I didn’t want to reveal this skill, but now, it looks like I must use my ultimate skill!” shouted Eighteen Massacres ferociously.
Dark fog surrounded him as Deathbringer’s possession had been dispelled. The bones gathered together and formed a Boss again! That was the power of Deathbringer, it was able to disassemble and reform at will.
It was a good thing that it was extremely difficult to create such warring-type Undead, or else, the Dark Shrine would have already ruled over all of The New Age!
“I’ll let you witness what an Epic Skill is! Cataclysm! Cataclysm!”
Eighteen Massacres raised his Seven Style Spear high up, and a black snake-like bolt of lightning was revealed. The Undead in the Plague Cauldron suddenly started rampaging. They stretched out their hands as they staggered to crawl towards the ground.
Lin Jie’s pupils constricted, it was Dark Shrine’s Epic Skill: Cataclysm! This was an ultimate skill where its cooldown was even as long as three natural days and could awaken dead creatures and Undead temporarily to battle for the player. Although their attributes were only 50% of when they were alive, it retained all of the skills they had previously!
“Mark of the Wild!”
The Undead released their skills one after the other. A bright light flashed from Eighteen Massacres’ body, and his health points were even directly regenerated back to full health! Not only so, but a total of 30 Undead also stood in front of Endorsement skill. There were Priests, Paladins, Warriors, Hunters, and Mages… It was a small army group! Under the enhancement of the different jobs, no one would be able to survive such a team!
“You didn’t expect this, right? Hahahahaha…” Eighteen Massacres was sure of his victory, so he shouted loudly, “This was all due to you, can you guess how did this skill come about?”
Lin Jie was stunned. “Is it possible…”
“That’s right! This was the reward from Epidemic Pond’s first clear! Let me tell you one more thing, the reason why I was able to obtain the first clear of Epidemic Pond was all because of you! It was due to you barging into Moratti Shrine and injuring that demon dragon heavily that allowed me to have the chance to enslave it! Now, I have already sacrificed that demon dragon to the Dark Shrine NPC. Soon after, I will become a high-level Believer, and at that time, just wait for me to completely destroy you!
“Body of Night’s King!”
Eighteen Massacres closed up the distance between him and Lin Jie in an instant. His Seven Style Spear transformed into a scythe and actually dealt 700 points of damage in a slash! Not only so, but the army of Undead had also gotten closer, and they attacked vigorously. Thus, Lin Jie’s health points dropped rapidly!
