ZL - Chapter 1018- killing archers

When over two hundred people surged into the forest, I did not think much and used Icy Wings to enter the bushes. I maintained camouflage using the wide leaves and also headed closer to the group instead of retreating. This King's Hunt was a great chance for them to gain achievement points, while it was a test for me. Whether or not I could get the highest score depended on this event.

Shua shua shua...

Flames rose from the bushes as the Mages used Starry Night. This skill could reveal players in Stealth mode within a certain range. Conquer The World was probably very familiar with my skills and knew that I could stealth in bushes; they should have also guessed that I was not far away.

I did not disappoint them. I looked at the group in front of me coldly. Not many were Mages out of the three hundred of them; in fact, there were no more than seventy. The others were Archers, Musketeers, Cavalry, and other offense types. My basic defense had reached 27,000,and I was also a player who had gone through my seventh job advancement. To a certain extent, I did not fear physical damage. En, time to reduce the Mage numbers first. It wouldn't be so easy for them to kill me.

……

After deciding on a plan, I didn't hesitate and used Azure Dragon Crossbow in the bushes. Before it was noticed, I charged forwards. Meteors appeared above me as I held Butterfly in my hands. It was Seven Star Fragment Slash again. With a "peng", it crashed into the crowd and shattered the Mana Shields of most of the Mages. After this group got hit, they used Dimensional Leap to leave their original positions. They were like a bunch of shocked bees who scattered. This was also something that I had expected.

"Peng!"

An ice wave spread from beneath my feet as I used Ice Domain. Most of the Mages were frozen and they couldn't move for three seconds.

"Kill him!"

The bunch of Conquer the World cavalry players charged out. I moved about calmly to find a good angle before tossing Butterfly out with Blade Spin to kill 6 mages. I then pulled out Zhen Yue Sword to slash a nearby Mage. At the same time I used the Blade Spin's trajectory to control Azure Dragon Crossbow to shot through many of them. Only now did they notice the weapon. Thus, some of them charged to destroy it while many charged towards me. Especially the Archers whose attacks were very fierce!

In a blink of an eye, my chest was turned into that of a porcupine. The combined attacks of a bunch of archers definitely wasn't easy to take and my health dropped to around 40%. More terrifying was that a bunch of Warriors and Berserkers had charged over too. Their player quality was really high and their support speed was really quick. Sword Break, Sword Control Technique, Battle Axe Throw etc skills exploded!



I tried to calm down and move about to avoid 80% of the attacks. At the same time, I used Butterfly and Zhen Yue Sword to attack the Mages.

In the distance, Hundred Step Bow the 14th ranked player on IBN pulled his bow and shot my back, dealing 40 thousand damage. At the same time he shouted, "His helmet has a 100% chance of dodging stuns. Don't use Scattered Shot, use Triple Arrow and Arrow Rain on him to kill him!"

I was shocked, Hundred Step Bow knew so much about my equipment.

Moreover, his strategy did make sense. Triple Arrow was really quick and it was hard to dodge while Arrow Rain was AOE. As such, I would have no choice but to eat the damage.

But under my attacks, the 10+ Mages remaining weren't to be feared. It was the large amount of close combat players behind me that were tough to deal with.

"Kacha!"

My blade slashed the chest of an Archer and I dealt 102711 damage to insta kill him. Moreover, it wasn't a critical strike. My Attack was so high now such that when I killed him, I healed 20 thousand health. But that was taken down and my Cleansing Rain was on CD. Hundred Step Bow pulled his bow once more. My health was less than 30 thousand and I would get insta killed!

I had no choice!

I activated the Holy Ghost 2nd Grade technique--- Invincible Body!

A golden light descended from above and I had entered invincibility mode lasting 25 seconds. At that moment, at least a hundred cavalry players appeared around me. This was my chance! I activated Death God's Dance and Trampling Thunder. Instantly, the players were all down to low health. I used Sword Tempest!

They cried and a large group of them died. Conquer the World really wanted to kill me and they still charged forwards to not let me flee. Many Berserkers jumped right onto me so that I couldn't fly up.

I smiled, I was waiting for them to get close!

Butterfly rose up and lightning energy wrapped around the blade. The sky turned dark and a storm started to rise. Thundering Heavens exploded with me at the core and continued to sweep the crowd. Instantly, a huge group of them had died. I charged fowards with my sword towards Hundred Step Bow. I had to kill this person first!

Hundred Step Bow saw that I had locked onto him and he wanted to turn around to leave. I used Blade Rush+Seven Stars Teleportation to teleport over. I raised my blade and then used Seven Star Fragment Slash!

"En!?"

His judgement was really accurate and right when I was about to hit, he used Crystallize, 1 second invincibility. But I raised my hand and used Defeat the Dragon to grab him. However, his reaction was too quick and he activated his skill. His body was protected by a golden shield which was an 11 second invincibility technique!

I didn't think and just used Double Hit on an Assassin behind me. 6 attacks and 2 were enough to kill him. I slid forwards and used the remaining four on two cavalry to heal 100 thousand. But the Archers and Musketee were too strong. Along with Hundred Step Bow's attacks, I was in pain!

"Peng!"

I bent down and jumped up, leaving a circling energy current in the forest. At the same time, I used Cleansing Rain on myself. Damn, so risky. The instance Invincible Body disappeared, I only had 10 thousand health. Along with Hundred Step Bow's long ranged attacks, I would probably die.

……

I remained in mid air and drank a health potion. Along with Cleansing Rain's heals, I was probably safe.

But things weren't as I expected as dozens of black shadows charged towards me. They were War Hawk Knights but they weren't pure War Hawk Knights but some with spears. Level 178 NPC. Their strength were on the level as level 6 Hybrid Demons. That Flame Lion Army Captain shouted from below, "War Hawk Knights kill, kill that jerk!"

Even the sky wasn't safe?

I smiled and played around with Butterfly. At this point my health had recovered to around 70% and I wasn't afraid anymore. I used Double Hit+Strength of a Thousand Men to rip one of them to pieces. My blade continued to slash and I used Wind Carrying Slash. Now, Wind Carrying Slash was already level 19 and the cooldown was 5 minutes. It could slash out 15 swords. The charge of the level 19 god skill exploded, forming an energy wave. The 15 swords caused a blood rain as the two War Hawk Knight were killed in mid air. Pieces of their bodies landed from above. The Conquer the World below were probably shocked by what they had seen.

Within minutes, the 14 War Hawk Knights were all killed by me.

I looked towards the forest once more and Hundred Step Bow's face was ashen white. He shouted, "No, we lack strength to suppress him, everyone retreat with me towards the south!"

The 100+ Conquer the World players retreated and that Flame Lion Army was shocked, "You cowards, did you forget your words when you joined Flame Lion Army? Such mice, you aren't worthy of Flame Lion Army!"

I charged down and locked onto Hundred Step Bow. If I didn't kill them, they would be a threat towards China Region during the King's Hunt. His attack was not much lower than Dancing Forest and with his calm judgement and strategy, he posed a huge threat.



This time, Hundred Step Bow didn't have invincibility so he couldn't dodge. He turned around and looked into the sky and was shocked. "Archers, slow him down! Our men are about to arrive!"

The archers stood still and aimed at me.

I didn't bother. Butterfly was already out of my hands. Hundred Step Bow moved to dodge it and right when he took a step, I had anticipated it and grabbed him into the air. With a slash, I used Double Hit and killed this Conquer the World team leader.

……

At that moment, the sound of horse hooves spread from afar. The dense group of over 5000 Conquer the World cavalry were here!
