Chapter 31 – Daily Meetings
General Wang Jian’s fighting skills were like heaven and earth compared to Liu Ying’s. His attacks were lightning fast, leaving no room for other players to dodge them. Not only that, his level 3 combo ability attacked from 3 different angles! Such aggression! This was how you completely overwhelm your opponent!
At the same time, his killer bee also came flying over, I was finished!
I scanned over my skills, and I saw [Heal] and [Hemostasis] were still in cooldown. There was no way for me to stick in a recovery skill between Wang Jian’s attacks to save my life. Wang Jian’s level 3 combo attack combined with the attacks of his Killer Bee, would instantly drop my health to nothing. Ok, fine. A life for a life. I would hide my Bee Overlord, and when Wang Jian killed me, Bobo must kill him as well!
General Wang Jian clenched his teeth, “You little healer, die!”
The sword slashed towards my shoulder, and I felt waves of pain accompanied with 3 damage numbers.
Actually, Wang Jian’s first two attacks had already killed me. This was the difference between our levels, my opponent had a very high growth in strength to attack, while I was stuck with a crappy growth rate but at least I could heal myself instead of chugging health potion constantly. In pain, my whole body fell backwards, but the moment before I died, I called my Bee Overlord, and it used a 3-strike combo aimed straight at Wang Jian’s chest!
“What the hell is this…?!”
Staring at the adorable, yet aggressive Baby Bobo,General Wang Jian was dumbfounded at the 3 damage numbers that appeared in front of his chest——
Oh my God, even though I died, it was worth it! Bobo’s last strike was a critical hit! Ah, this felt good. Even if Wang Jian had two lives he still wouldn’t have survived that. If I knew this would have happened, I would have sent Bobo to attack as soon as Wang Jian came near me, it only took Bobo a single combo to destroy Wang Jian!
I was forced into my soul form, appearing within the cemetery. I checked and see what I dropped. Looks like none of my equipment dropped, the only things missing were 3 White equipments, and 2 bundles of [Chilling Wind Herb]s. Ah how it pained me, but Wang Jian also died. The entire General family had been annihilated, so they shouldn’t be able to pick up my items. Let me return first, to see if there was any chance of revival!
After running for 7 minutes, I returned back to my corpse.
The wind brushed against the pine trees, and I stood next to my corpse. I didn’t dare revive, because not far from me were General Li Mu, Wang Jian, and Bai Qi! In fact, General Wang Jian had already revived! Wang Jian was sitting on my corpse, sipping a health potion.
“This Xiao Yao Zi Zai bastard ruined our plans!” Wang Jian kicked the leg of my corpse, and said furiously, “If he didn’t do that last second heal on Yue Qing Qian, we would have undoubtedly gotten the boss level equipment!”
General Li Mu shot him a glance, and simply said, “You know, Xiao Yao Zi Zai is one of the top healers in Ba Huang city. At the same time, he is one of the the top alchemists. He has quite a bit of business with Yue Qing Qian; they probably formed a friendship. If that is true, then him helping Yue Qing Qian is forgivable ”
Wang Jian furrowed his brows, “Boss, what do you mean by that?”
Li Mu smiled faintly, “In all of Ba Huang City, there are not many healers that have high levels or promoted from a trainee healer, but Xiao Yao did it! On top of that Xiao Yao is level 4 in [Alchemy] and also in [Herb Picking]. Don’t we need these kinds of people? I think you should put down your anger, and carefully consider our family’s future development.”
Wang Jian muttered a bit more, but didn’t continue speaking.
On the side, the 50 year old archer held his long bow while sitting in the bush said, “You little punks think about this too easily. Do you think because we won against [Prague] today means that we are stronger than them? Wrong. Today, they only brought around 70 players, yet they have thousands of players in Ba Huang City. How about us? The main force is us four, and even if you add up our relatives and friends, we couldn’t even reach 40 players, we can’t be compared to [Prague]. Today’s victory is a fluke, in reality we lost.”
Li Mu nodded, “Yep. Looking at the long term, we don’t have enough money, players, and we don’t even have an official guild. We’re basically solo players playing together, but luckily we leveled up quick, or else we wouldn’t even have this group of 40 or so members. I hear that [Flying Dragons], [Prague], and [Wrath of the Heroes] have all settled into Ba Huang City. Their resources, members are all superior than ours. So, we have to work hard right now, so we can also rise to the top.”
Wang Jian raised his head, and grunted, “Boss, do you think you’re a new reporter? Don’t say useless things, even now Xiao Yao Zi Zai hasn’t revived yet, what should we do?”
Li Mu stood up, holding his long sword, and said, “Yan Zhao and their group have probably revived by now, and there will be a large amount of people from [Prague] coming here. What we need to do is very simple, we return back the city and avoid them. Since the boss is already killed, I don’t want us to face Yan Zhao again!”
“Okay, let’s go!”
The group took out their city return scroll, and became flashes of light as they returned back.
I stood next to my corpse, but I still didn’t dare to revive. I was not sure if there was anyone staying around from the General family, just to kill me a second time.
“Don’t worry and revive, haha!”
In the bushes, a graceful shadow walked towards my corpse. It was Yue Qing Qian holding a dagger. She blinked her eyes and said, “I already scouted the area, everyone from the Generals have left, so go on and revive!”
I successfully revive, and instantly cast [Heal] on myself, my HP was back to full! I also swallow a [Seven-Star Pill] to return my mana as well. I looked at Yue Qing Qian, and laughed, “Oh Qing Qian! What a coincidence!”
She returns the laugh, “Yeah, what a coincidence! Wanna have dinner together?”
I shook my head, “Nah, I’m studying ancient literature, pretty busy…”
“Okay…” Qing Qian looked deeply at me, and said, “Xiao Yao, I’m thankful for your help. Without you, [Prague] would lost the loot of this boss. I never would have thought that the Generals were this strong, and we only brought some weaker players. We almost got completely wiped out…”
I sighed, “Well, I was only planning to help you a bit, but I never would have thought that General Wang Jian would come for me instead, and my pet accidentally killed him. Sigh, now that I’ve angered the Generals, it’ll be hard to show my face in Ba Huang City…”
Behind me, a fresh sound came, “Then join us in [Prague], the doors of [Prague] will always be open to you!”
From downhill, a person equipped with a long sword came walking over. It was uncle Yan Zhao. He was indeed a skilled player, making his own skill, or perhaps he was a swordsman in real life as well.
Yan Zhao came to my side, and the twin sister, Yue Wei Liang also came smiling, “Yeah! Brother Xiao Yao, you’re so close to Qing Qian, join us in [Prague]! Then you and her can be together, how nice eh…”
A few people from [Prague] chanted, “Haha! Get together! Get together!”
Qing Qian’s face turned crimson, and she waveed her dagger, “Say another word and I’ll kill you!”
The crowd went silent.
I held the ancient spear, and smiled, “Thank you for thinking about me Yan Zhao, but I truly don’t want to join any guilds. I am used to playing by myself in games. ”
Yan Zhao straightened up, looked at me, and said, “Zi Zai, I understand what you mean, but…but in this world you cannot always be wandering around by yourself. A person will eventually feel lonely. I still think that you should join us. I can…I can, after the guild is finished settling in, I can let you be an elder, how’s that?”
I laughed a bit, “No thanks, I won’t join any guilds. Unless…Unless my old pals come together again and we will conquer "Destiny"!”
“Your pals?” Yan Zhao seemed surprised, “You have a studio? Or a guild?”
“What’s it called? Doesn’t matter if it’s from "Conquest", "Overlord", or even "Empire", I am well informed of any large studios or guilds from these games. Tell me which one…”
“Zhan Long…” I felt a bit embarrassed.
Yan Zhao went quiet and thought for a bit, “Cough cough, I don’t really remember this studio, but who would have known that there is a skilled player like you Xiao Yao, you have plenty of potential. Anyways, I’ll let you consider it, or maybe wait until your Zhan Long crew gets back together, then join us, that would be a wonderful as well. Look, that Qing Qian is so close to you, and when she’s with us she always mentions you, the swordsman healer, and also…”
Yan Zhao lowered his voice, “She doesn’t have a boyfriend, and her mother keeps telling me to get her to get with someone!”
I laughed out loud.
Qing Qian’s face went completely green, and with monstrous killing intent, said, “You d*mn uncle, you wanna die?!”
Yan Zhao laughed, and waved his hands, “Nah, I have no intention of dying. Ok, I need to go now, you two go on and continue chatting. Oh, one more thing Xiao Yao, when you get time, can you provide some more high level mana pills for us. [Prague] will keep on challenging different areas in the map. We’ll take all the pills you have…”
I nodded, “Okay.”
Yan Zhao brought his people to leave, and right before he wass out of hearing range, I yelled, “Uncle Yan Zhao, wait!”
“Hm?” He asked.
I rubbed my hands and smiled, “That…I wanted to ask, your combo, how did you make it? How come I researched for long, but couldn’t find how you do it?”
Yan Zhao had a blank look, and smiled, “That..Wait until you join [Prague]. I’ll tell you then~”
Damn guy, still hiding secrets..
I was speechless, this Yan Zhao guy was really stingy. Whatever, I would slowly figure it myself, I didn’t need help!
I turned around, and looked at Qing Qian. I extended my hand and said, “Come on, return the [Chilling Wind Herbs] back to me, I’ll go and make some level 4 mana pills…”
