ZL - Chapter 1017- lone hunt

I did not hide my thoughts. "No need.Let us adventurers deal with our fellow adventurers. The Royal Army's goals are the Flame Lion and Azure Ocean armies. Maintain formation."

    "Yes, sir!"

    ……

    Morning in-game, the fog rose from the short bushes in the horizon. It covered the waist of the trees in a thin veil. Dew landed on the bushes and birds chirped. This place was really tranquil, but behind this was endless killing intent. This was India Region's chance and Clear Black Eyes would not let it slip.

    In the guild, Lin Wan Er marked the coordinates of the sixty thousand Zhan Long members on the map. We were scattered across Fire Marsh Plains, Questioning Heaven Ice Plains, and Forest of Stars. The various Tian Ling City guilds were also scattered on the various maps. These few maps were huge and not all the players on both sides had headed out, ensuring that this battle was really like a hunt.

    I ordered the Royal Army and Dragon’s Den troops to remain on the spot, while I rode God Dragon Horse to leave War God River. Since I was in a good mood, I planned to earn some achievement points from the King's Hunt.

    Over 70% of Fire Marsh Plains was fertile and was suitable for cavalry battles. The other 30% was all bushes, forests, and marshland. I had camouflage and naturally easily blended in with the surrounding bushes and forest, so I could use this terrain as my attack route. Many China players appeared in the plains in the distance and there were also a small group of Indian players. Both sides were probing before retreating. No real battle had occured.

    Sha sha...

    Horse hooves stepped on the leaves as I proceeded forwardslowly. I entered camouflage and heard people talking a little in front. "That small hill has around one hundred China players and they’re between level 165 to 170. We have a chance of wiping them out. Our Peak War God Guild has gathered five hundred people; we can't let Drunk Maple and Clear Black Eyes look down on us anymore. We must show them our strength this time!"

    I parted the leaves of the forest and noticed that a bunch of people had gathered here. The one who had just spoken was a middle-aged Indian with an axe. He looked really fierce. By his side were two deputy guild leaders and four elders. These people, who were members of a guild in Waterfront City called Peak War God, had been waiting for a chance to ambush us. I used the system and found out that their guild was level 3 that was not full. Their guild had around 50% of the maximum number of members. It seemed like they planned to kill the Chinese players who passed through this region. Okay, time to draw first blood on these people!



    I carefully summoned Ancient God Tiger and pulled out Zhen Yue Sword and Butterfly. After confirming the surrounding map, I tossed out Butterfly. Instantly, this five-star god weapon turned into a spiral that charged at these people’s guild leader. Blade Spin slashed thrice, and before the guild leader even saw me, he was insta-killed. Each slash generated 70,00damage, for a total of 220,000. He definitely was unable to block it.

    "Be careful.Someone’s sneak-attacking us!" the low-Health deputy guild leader shouted.

    Alas, it was too late. My God Dragon Horse had already charged out. I swept with Zhen Yue Sword and used Seven Star Fragment Slash into the crowd. I followed up with Sword Tempest, and out of the seven, only one who activated Crystallize was still alive. However, before he could feel fortunate, Ancient God Tiger took him away with a claw.

    I did not hesitate and continued charging forward. I did not care about these few hundred people. I activated Icy Wings and buffed myself with Wall of Douqi and Frost Armor. My body turned into a spiral storm that swept the crowd. I did not even use many skills and just slashed blade by blade. Instantly, the area behind me was covered in corpses; I had caught the enemies off guard. Only after they had stopped panicking did they startshouting about using Scattered Shot to stun me. Unfortunately, my Overlord Helmet had the Heart of the Courageous effect, soneither would I get stunned nor would my speed be reduced. Their melee players and Archers also dealt too little damage on me. At most, they dealt 2,000, and the least was just dozens of damage.

    "Mage, focus fire!" a team leader shouted.

    At least fifty Mages were gathered together. Eagles cried out and lightning flashed; this was the skill Lightning Eagle Formation!

    I laughed and jumped up. I used my mobility to fly across the forest and dodged most of them. I flew hundreds of meters before diving down. Butterfly and Seven Star Fragment Slash cut through the crowd, and the overlord blade turned two Cavalries into meat paste. At my side, a large group of Heavy-armored Cavalry players charged over.

    I looked at my skills and locked eyes with Death God's Dance. I activated it, and instantly, a red Death God Cavalry appeared around me. The playersaround me started losing health, and before they could retreat, I used Blade of the Champion's Trampling Thunder effect. A large patch of over 100,000damage rose and dozens of Cavalry fell off their horses. I stepped in the air and retreated. At the same time, I drank Lanling Flower Wine and recovered 100 Rage value. I turned around and used Defeat The Dragon to grab a Mage before sending Butterfly through his Mana Shield to insta-kill him!

    In the blink of an eye, this Peak War God Guild had gone from five hundred people to two hundred. Their mouths were opened wide. The face of the Cavalry leader, who was holding a spear, had turned ashen-white, and he trembled. "It's Xiao Yao Zi Zai... the last country war's MVP, China Region's killing god... D*mn! Why is he here? Brothers, don't be nervous. Attack together; he’s all by himself. I refuse to believe that he's made of metal and that we can't kill him. Charge!”

    They gathered at least one hundredCavalry, Assassins, and Archers to charge at me. If this were someone else, they would probably consider fleeing.

    Kong kong...Ancient God Tiger roared as if it to provoke the group.

    I sucked a deep breath.Time to try!

    Hua!

    After returning Butterfly into its sheath, I opened my right hand and an invisible energy field gathered around. The surrounding bushes started to shake, and in it were many small pieces of stone. With Heaven Control, these pieces of stone, including some of the thorns on the bushes, started to rise. Even a wild boar was lifted by me. I waved my hands forwardand power exploded. Instantly, the stone, thorns, and wild boar flew forwardlike cannonballs!

    Peng peng peng...

    The fast-moving pieces of stone were like bullets. These Indian players could not handle them at all, and many of them were directly pummeled to death. The wild boar crushed two Assassins. A few seconds later, half of the two hundred men they had gathered were killed. They looked at one another before fleeing. Their faces were filled with shock. "This person isn't human.Flee!"

    I did not chase them and, instead, watched asthis bunch, who had lost all their courage, fled from the forest. In truth, I was lazy to chase them, as there was no sense of achievement in doing that at all. Still, killing four hundred people in such a short time caused my King's Hunt achievement points to reach first. This was a little too simple...

    I continued onwardwhile under my camouflage. Whenever I encountered any Indian players, I would immediately killthem. In this long period, none of them posed much threat to me. An hour later, I noticed a Flame Lion Army scout team of one hundred. However, there were roughly three hundred Conquer The World members. Conquer The World was India's top guild and its overall strength was above that of Clear Black Eyes's guild. Their strength could not be underestimated; a few were even at level 178 and on the brink of having their seventh job advancement. The strongest was an Archer called Hundred Step Bow, and this player was ranked fourteenth on the IBN Battlenet. His Attack was really high and I might be unable to block him, so it was best if I played safe.

    Thus, I pushed forwardalong the bushes and got closer to them. Suddenly, the God Dragon Horse neighed and a beast trap appeared under us. This was the Archer's Beast Trap skill. As the trap was invisible and my vision was not as good as an Assassin or an Archer, I was naturally successfully trapped!

    "There's someone!"

    Shouts came from within the forest. This time, the enemy quality was much higher and they shot arrows through the trees. I activated Icy Wings to dodge but was still hit twice. The scorching pain spread out, each dealing 7,000 damage. Tsk!This Archer's bow had at least 40% true damage; if not, it would not have damaged me so much.

    Shua...

    I slid onto the grass patch, and with a glance, I saw where the three Archers were positioned. I raised my hand and used Great Realm of Desolation. The level 19 skill shone, and in the next moment, I heard an Archer cry as he fell off the tree. Great Realm of Desolation dealt 90,000damage just like that!

    Another Archer locked onto me. The glow on the bow was huge; this was Shot of the Archery God!

    Peng!

    My shoulder was hit and I could not help but shake as 12,000 Health was taken. This bunch of Archers was strong and definitely Drunk Maple's elite squad.

    After getting hit, I turned around and left. At the same time, I waved Butterfly to slice the leaves and use Blade Spin at the top of the trees. Another Archer was insta-killed and another one was pierced in the chest. However, after killing three of them, my situation was not good too as many players charged over through the forest. Moreover, the Flame Lion Army soldiers charged in. That Captain raised his halberd arrogantly. "It is Tian Ling City Royal Army's general!No matter who it is, as long as you kill him, you'll at least be promoted three times!"
