Upon seeing such a large amount of people attack him, Li HuaiLin actually started feeling a little giddy: “If I knew earlier, I would’ve gone to provoke some large guilds a long time ago. Look at this scene full of incoming attacks, it’s so beautiful.”
Although you could see an expression of happiness on his face, Li HuaiLin was not slow with his own counterattack. Accelerating, he chopped towards the thief player that was closest to him.
The Thief class was not a tanky class so Li HuaiLin had insta-killed the thief that was called “Blue Sky 6th Must Heal”, meanwhile the enemies’ storm of spells and attacks had also reached Li HuaiLin.
-91, this was a mage’s fireball spell.
-41, this was a warrior’s close combat skill.
-56, this was a hunter’s precise shot skill.
If you considered Li HuaiLin’s monstrous defense, these attacks were pretty strong. The main thing was, there were a lot of them although looking further down the system logs, Li HuaiLin saw some numbers that didn’t make him feel so good.
+35, this was a Warlock’s corrosion skill.
+6, this was burn damage from a Mage’s fireball skill.
+20, this was the bleeding effect from a warrior.
After a flurry of attacks, Li HuaiLin’s health had first dropped a huge amount and then regained a large amount. In the end, the attacks were still stronger and Li HuaiLin’s health had dropped about a quarter.
“So tanky, how is he so tanky?” An Apocalypse guild’s Mage shouted. His Fireball had already reached rank 2 and would do at least 150+ damage do the average player and yet against Li HuaiLin, the number hadn’t even reached a hundred.
“His physical defense is high too, it’s inhuman!” A close-combat thief followed up.
NineSongs, who was standing in the squad, was shaken. 50+ players’ attack should be able to Insta-kill Li HuaiLin, but the situation had far exceeded his expectations. The enemy had somehow only lost a quarter of his health, WenTianF was this situation? He couldn’t see Li HuaiLin’s stats, so he came to the conclusion that Li HuaiLin’s HP must truly be against the heavens.
“You guys are too weak…” Li HuaiLin was still pulling aggro. It would be best if he could offend every person in the guild at least once. “Come, let another hundred come to scratch my itch.”
Li HuaiLin didn’t speak another anymore as he slashed twice towards the nearest warrior who still hadn’t come back to his senses yet.
This warrior’s defense isn’t bad, although his HP does seem to let people worry. Only two blades and he just rolled over.
Li HuaiLin stopped and looked downward. Surprisingly, he discovered a piece of equipment on the ground glowing light green. He suddenly recalled that even if it was a basic attack, a killed player would still have a 50% chance to drop equipment.
“Regretfully, WenTian didn’t drop anything just now. He’s a tycoon, any random drop would make me rich.” Li HuaiLin smiled and reached for the equipment, dropping it into his bag, and then slashed towards another player.
“Keep attacking! He’s not invincible!” NineSongs looked towards the remaining few people, hurriedly shouting. The opponent was already so perverted, if they lost any more members, their attack power would even less sufficient.
Apocalypse guild’s members all came to a realization and immediately continued to chant skills and attacks. Players further away were safer, as ultimately Li HuaiLin was surrounded and was temporarily unable to escape but close-combat players were screwed. Li HuaiLin’s attacks were too overbearing, nobody was able to withstand two blades and if one was a critical hit, then it was an unquestionable Insta-kill.
As the number of people dwindled, their combat power suffered as well resulting in prolonging the battle. What was originally a 1v50+ battle that should have ended within 10 seconds had now already dragged on from 3 minutes.
Of course, in the end, Li HuaiLin died with glory and a face full of smiles. After a flash of white light, a green shoulder plate was left on the floor. It was a piece that Li HuaiLin had randomly picked up and as he was the initial attacker, he would definitely drop a piece of equipment.
“Hu, hu….” NineSongs had almost collapsed from continuous shouting, not even instance dungeon bosses made him this tired. There were a few times he thought it was over, but then suddenly the pressure on the melee attackers would subside. He had no idea what happened, and he didn’t have time to think about it now. He looked at the visibly fatigued guild members around him and asked, “How’s the situation? How many people are left?”
“Vice guild leader, there were a total of 23 deaths.” A warrior to the side said with a face full of sweat, “All the thieves died, half of the warriors died, but there are still 1 or 2 remaining ranged classes left. In total, we dropped 11 pieces of equipment: 2 blues and 9 greens. We also managed to get back 2 pieces, although he managed to get away with the rest.
“Motherf**ker” Jie Ge couldn’t help cursing.
“This Brother NiuBi must be some kind of monster, he’s hard to kill than bosses” A surviving team member couldn’t help but say.
“No wonder everyone’s been saying he’s niubi on the internet, at first I didn’t believe, but now I’ve learned.” Another team member said.
“Everyone shut up!” NineSongs’s yelled frustratedly. He had no idea how to face Guild Leader WenTian right now after using 50 people to attack one person and yet losing half of his team.
As he was thinking, the dead WenTian started talking in the guild channel: “NineSongs, have you killed that guy?”
“We have killed him. “ NineSongs furrowed his brow, “Although that person is too perverted. Not only is his attack power monstrous, so it is his defense. He killed half of our group before we finished him off.”
“What?” WenTian was also shocked. He had originally thought that the only thing Li HuaiLin had was his surprising attack power, but who would’ve though that his defense was so exaggerated too. “Are you sure? How did this guy grind?”
“I don’t know, this guy was just a human-shaped boss. Guild Leader, what should we do now?” NineSongs asked.
“Just wait for a little, I’m over halfway. Wait for me to come, let the players who died start heading back over too. This conflict isn’t over yet. Since he’s audacious enough to kill our Apocalypse guild’s people, we have to send him back to the New Player Village even if he’s Brother NiuBi.” WenTian had truly been angered, and it was an overwhelming rage at this point.
“Ok.” NineSongs nodded his head and started giving out orders.
Returning to Li HuaiLin’s side, Li HuaiLin who just returned to the respawn point was smiling stupidly.
“2 blues, 7 greens, omg, I’ve never though about such a method of earning money before.” Li HuaiLin looked at the pile of equipment in his bad and said, smiling, “And I also got 3640 points of exp, I’m simply invincible now. IF I need equipment, then I have the equipment. If I need EXP, I have EXP. This is much better than robbing. Apocalypse guild members are not bad, truly good people!”
Li HuaiLin was suddenly addicted, having never before imagined that provoking Apocalypse was simply a no-cost all-benefit transaction. He HAD to continue.
Going towards the bank, Li HuaiLin used 1 gold from the money he made selling potions to open 10 slots, then 10 gold for another 10 slots, and finally deposited all the equips on him into the bank. Taking only the green-ranked sword with the insane LUCK stat, he charged towards South Gate again.
System Notice: You have a long-distance call, would you like to pick up?
Li HuaiLin had just arrived at South Gate when he received the system notice. He lurched, thinking at first that it might be someone from WenTian’s side, but he hadn’t thought that after looking at the name, it would be Spirit World Night Cruise.
“Hi, NightCruise, what is it?” Li HuaiLin picked up the call and asked.
“Huai Lin ah, didn’t you say you wanted health pots yesterday? Unfortunately, our guild leader said he wanted to go for another instance dungeon, so health pots have to be reserved. I was only able to get you 150 bottles. “ NightCruise told him apologetically.
“Oh, no problem.” Li HuaiLin hadn’t originally intended on asking for much anyway, getting 150 bottles for free was not bad. “Although I don’t have time to pick it up now, I’m a little busy.”
“Busy? Doing what? Clearing the Abyss again?” Night Cruise thought that Li HuaiLin had a bug for clearing the Abyss dungeon, normal players would be dying to grind that dungeon right now.
“Nah, I’m trying to earn some money fighting.” Li HuaiLin said, laughing.
“Making money by fighting people?” Night Cruise was started blankly, could fighting make money?
“Let’s leave it at that for now. I’ll come to find you soon.” Li HuaiLin currently was full of enthusiasm and didn’t say much before hanging up.
“Hello…” In the time Night Cruise was struck by Li HuaiLin’s words, Li HuaiLin had already hung up, making him unable to laugh or cry.
“Fighting? He hasn’t found trouble has he…” Seeing how Li HuaiLin had so quickly hung up, Night Cruise was a little worried. “Fire Head, go to the News department and ask, what’s going on.”
“Ok.” SpiritWorld FireHead nodded.
