Chapter 44 – Finding Fault (2)
Translator: Anonymous Editor: Cosmosg9
It was in the morning, so most players were still sleeping. Most guild chat channels were quiet but there was one exception: the Apocalypse guild’s channel suddenly erupted with a frenzy of activity.
“Guild master, I’m Qing Feng and I was in charge of Lava Crack today. I was just killed, and our 3-man party was wiped.” The knight player from before said in the guild channel.
“What? Who did it? Which guild is looking for trouble?” WenTian had just woken up. Ever since he had taken over the Lava Crack, the number of people that came looking for trouble was endless. After all, the benefits from staying here were not little and if his own guild wasn’t strong enough, he probably would have had to let go of the place a long time ago. Still, even those he could solve the troubles each time, WenTian was very tired, having to stay online for at least 15 hours every day. Otherwise, there would always be problems.
“It was Brother NiuBi.” The recently-killed mage player said in the guild channel.
“Brother NiuBi?” WenTian jolted. He obviously knew who Brother Niubi was. After all, the announcements yesterday had just mentioned him. Of course, he hadn’t wanted to go look for Brother NiuBi, as he was mostly focused on developing Lava Crack, and didn’t have the energy to focus on dungeon clears. He didn’t care enough to seek any clear guides or strategies from Li Huailin, but he never thought that he would be sought out instead.
“How many people did be bring? What guild’s people are they?” WenTian thought for a second and asked.
“It was just himself, he wasn’t wearing any guild insignia. We don’t know what guild he’s from.” The knight player Qin Feng said.
“What? It was just him solo?” WenTian jolted. Yesterday, he had heard that Brother NiuBi had Insta-killed a Warrior with one strike, but he hadn’t believed it. He had thought that someone was too fervent a fan of Brother NiuBi’s, and as a result, came up with the story. Were Brother NiuBi’s PK abilities also so shocking? Thinking a little, he asked, “He killed you three by himself? What have you guys been eating?”
“Guild Leader, you can’t blame us.” Qin Feng felt wronged, he had not had any ability to fight back. “Brother NiuBi straight up killed me with 2 blades, there wasn’t even an opportunity to heal before I died……”
“I was Insta-killed with one strike, I didn’t even have the chance to cast a spell……” The mage player also said.
“I was also felled in 2 hits, I didn’t have the chance to react. “ The priest player followed up, “He didn’t use any skills, just hitting me deal over 500 damage, there’s simply no way to resist. He’s simply a human-shaped Boss monster.”
“Really? He’s truly that strong?” WenTian was speechless. What did it mean to have damage over 500, being able to kill anyone with just 2 strikes? This was just giving people no way to live. If these three people’s words could be believed, then he honestly could not fault them.
“It’s truly Guild Leader. If I hadn’t seen it, I wouldn’t have believed it either. Brother Niubi is truly niubi.” Qin Feng was truly shaken by Li Hualin, he didn’t even have the heart to seek revenge.
“Where did he go? Let me see.” WenTian pondered a little then said.
“Thus……” After Qin Feng had died, he didn’t know what happened afterward. But telling the Guild Leader that wouldn’t know was a little……. Just as he was feeling frustrated, someone from the Guild channel helped him out.
[Guild Member] GuaiZi Ma: Guild Leader, we’re Lava Crack’s 12th harvesting team. We were just waiting at a refreshing point for the Fire Herbs to respawn when a person charged over. He didn’t say anything and just started attacking. He’s very strong and killed our 5 man team instantly.
“What?” WenTian started raging, “Is it Brother NiuBi?”
“Brother NiuBi?” GuaiZi Ma thought for a little, “Now that you mention it, I think he did look very much like Brother NiuBi. He wore newbie clothing. We didn’t react at first, but as soon as he made a move, he Insta-killed a priest with one hit. He’s too monstrous.”
“Such bullying!” WenTian was well and truly angry, what Brother NiuBi, no matter how you put it, his guild was still one of the ranked guilds of China. And yet, there was someone proving him by themselves, it was simply not putting WenTian in their eyes.
“You guys wait at the refresh point, I’ll arrange for some people to come immediately. “ WenTian immediately ordered. “NineSongs, call everyone from Team A to come online and regroup immediately!”
“Yes, Guild Leader.” Guild executive officer NineSongs replied.
“Guild Leader, there’s a problem here!” Without even waiting for WenTian to have a moment of peace, another person started talking in the Guild Channel. “I am from the 3rd farming team, we were farming fire elementals’ Fire Essence when suddenly a crazy person came and Insta-killed our whole team. His name was Chest-toucher Huai Ruo Lin, I think it was the Brother NiuBi from the forums.”
“Guild Leader, I was also killed, I think it was Brother NiuBi!” Another guild member said.
“Me too Guild Leader, I didn’t even have the chance to react, a 1000 damage strike immediately killed me.”
“F**k, I got it! Stop talking! NineSongs, tell-all farming teams to be careful. The elite team should be there within 10 minutes.” WenTian said, gritting his teeth.
At the Lava Crack, Li HuaiLin easily killed another member of the Apocalypse Brotherhood. It was already the 20th member to die to his hands and his infamy was already negative twenty-something.
“How can their response time be so slow as a large build, making me wait this long.” Li HuaiLin bent over and picked up a piece of leather armor. It would probably be White equipment since the other party was from the farming team rather than the actual fighting teams. At most, they would only have 2 pieces of Bronze level equipment. Getting actual good stuff from them would probably be very difficult, although 7 of the Fire Flowers did drop. Although they weren’t too valuable, they were still worth more than White equipment.
“Alright, time for the next team.” Just as Lin HuaiLin wanted to go find another team, he suddenly discovered a large group of people approaching from far away. At a glance, there were over 50 people.
“Finally here.” Li HuaiLin was excited, the main target finally appeared.
Indeed, the people coming included Apocalypse Brotherhood’s guild leader WenTian, as well as executive officer NineSongs along with some others. They were followed by the main force of approximately 50 people. Almost all the guild elites had arrived.
Li HuaiLin’s appearance was already familiar to WenTian. After all, it was all over the shared videos in the forums. Although what did surprise WenTian was that Li HuaiLin apparently did not have any intention of escaping. He had thought that Li HuaiLin was ready to keep assassinating the farming teams and cause trouble, but it looked like this wasn’t the case; Li HuaiLin seemingly had a place for coming.
“You’re Brother NiuBi?” WenTian asked Li HuaiLin as he approached.
“Apocalypse Guild’s leader WenTian?” Li HuaiLin had never seen WenTian, although he had heard of the guild before. He had never really paid much attention though, only hearing of WenTian’s name, never knowing his appearance. Thus, looking at the 30-something-year-old well-built man in front of him, Li HuaiLin wanted to confirm.
“I am indeed the Apocalypse’s Guild Leader WenTian. Brother NiuBi, you’ve killed over 10 of my guild’s people, what do you mean by this?” WenTian’s facial expression was not happy, although it would have been weird if it had been happy at this moment.
“Did they not tell you my intentions? I told them, from now on, this Lava Crack will be under my management. I’ve already declared this, and yet your people still dare to harvest from here. This is simply not giving me face, so what if I kill them?” Li HuaiLin said as if it were obvious.
“This place is under your management?” WenTian was beyond angry. He had been a Guild Leader for 8 years and he had never seen as brazen a person as Li HuaiLin, someone who declared a whole area under the ownership of himself, not to mention that he was stealing the area from WenTian. “So you’re just honestly here to look for trouble?”
“Yup. I said from the beginning, I’m here to look for trouble.” Li HuaiLin nodded, “To be direct with you, I want the Fire Flowers from here. I thought you wouldn’t give them over easily, so I came to look for trouble. Why don’t you tell me how we should resolve this?”
“Good, good.” WenTian couldn’t resist clapping, “I, WenTian, had seen many people but never have I seen someone who seeks death as much as you, willing to start trouble with us the Apocalypse Guild. Did you really think just because I called you Brother NiuBi, we were afraid of you?”
“Those words seem a bit false: if you weren’t afraid, why would you bring so many people?” Li HuaiLin smiled as he provoked WenTian.
“Motherf**ker is seeking death.” WenTian was instantly angered and wave his hand behind him. “Kill him for me, I just don’t believe that a single player can triumph over an entire guild’s force!”
WenTian’s words barely finished before Li HuaiLin stabbed a blade into WenTian’s chest. No method of seeking death would be better than directly killing a guild leader, so Li HuaiLin advanced with this idea in mind.
“WTF!” The difference this time was that although WenTian took 1100+ damage from Li HuaiLin, he didn’t die. Li HuaiLin looked at WenTian’s equipment which appeared to all glow with a blue and green light. He deserved to be called a large guild’s Guild Leader with such good equips and adding to the fact that WenTian was originally a warrior, his health was over 1100.
“Have you all gone stupid? Heal me!” The 1100 points of burst damage shocked the elites who hadn’t seen Li HuaiLin before, but WenTian got over it and started shouting orders.
“It’s too late, why did you have to be so strong?” As Li HuaiLin finished speaking, another hit finished off WenTian’s remaining health.
“Guild Leader!” NineSongs, who stood off to the side, hadn’t reacted before WenTian had already fallen. He was both surprised and furious, shouting, “Everyone move! I want him dead!”
Apocalypse’s elite team of players finally reacted. The mages immediately started chanting their skills while warriors, rogues, and other close-combat classes charged at Li HuaiLin.
