Chapter 100: Red Tagged
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
As Qin Ruo sped toward Devil’s Swamp, he learned through Little Kitten and Gold Digger Babe that the frequent onslaught at Devil’s Swamp was becoming increasingly chaotic!
Not only were Order of the Eight Gods’ Clan members scattered around Devil’s Swamp do everything possible to seek out their trail and engage in combat, but also the Tier 3 and 4 Devilcrocs in Devil’s Swamp gathered under the Gargantuan Demoncroc’s command to launch attacks on both sides. Additionally, some Tier 3 and 4 players also rushed from Blacktown upon receiving the news. On top of all that, there were also random players that came along to loot equipment and join in the fun.
The whole of Devil’s Swamp was now akin to dynamite barrel filled with the smell of gunpowder, where it could ignite at any time and explode.
At the same time, Qin Ruo received an unfortunate news related to Brother Da.
As Brother Da had been guarding the dead bodies despite and because he was not resurrected by a Radiant Priest, his level dropped by one. Afterward, when fighting his way back to Devil’s Swamp from Blacktown with a band of brothers, they encountered Order of the Eight Gods’ Clan members that happened to be the red tagged party that specialized in PK.
They were then once again spawn camped not far from where Little Kitten and the others were…
If it were not for Little Kitten who sent a message to Wang Da just in time, asking him to wait for a while, this group of people would have suffered from a drop in level again!
By now, Qin Ruo was very anxious, earnestly wishing he could grow a pair of wings and charge into Devil’s Swamp!
However, an Elementalist’s Movement Speed was not high in nature. It would still be the same speed even when he ran desperately… By the time he reached the front of a black and sparse forest, nearly twenty minutes had passed.
Without the anxiety and uneasiness he felt during the first time he entered it, Qin Ruo dashed into the forest in front without hesitation—Devil’s Swamp!
Devil’s Swamp was very different from the usual marsh areas, as it was a jungle swamp. Its vast area was well-known across the entire Mythical Continent!
The scariest parts inside this jungle with an unpredictable environment were the many swamp traps and Devilcrocs which could hardly be detected by the naked eye.
The swamp traps were not big but could cause a huge problem. Once players stood in it, they would be immediately trapped and would require much effort to get out. If a camouflaged Croc swam over at that time, that would be a “jackpot”! Within the swamp, even the highest tier Berserker would be dragged mercilessly into the muddy swamp, drastically reducing speed and weakening combat power.
Thus, even the strongest player needs to be careful and cautious in Devil’s Swamp and pay complete attention to everything inside.
Tricky and dangerous—the reason that deterred many players from Devil’s Swamp!
Qin Ruo could still remember the first time he stepped into that place. Despite almost two hundred players going into the heart of Devil’s Swamp, all their faces were pale. They held their breaths, not daring to relax even a little and were on full alert.
The Devil’s Swamp back then had also left a lasting impression on Qin Ruo!
Of course, the situation would change with time.
The dangers on the second floor of the ruins were not any less than here. Qin Ruo had experienced a much harsher training at the ruins after all. So even though he was alone right now, he still rushed into Devil’s Swamp, towards the coordinates that Little Kitten and Gold Digger Babe sent him…
Devil’s Swamp’s ground was extreme damp with water covering more than 50% of the entire swamp, which was considered an area abundant with the water element.
Qin Ruo was surprised that he received the Elemental Perception: Water status then quickly realized that there was a Bandit up ahead, not far from where he was. A faint sanguine luster emitted from the Bandit’s entire body. He was in a hunched position, hiding behind the shadows of two large trees. His eyes were sharply scanning about, as he quietly listened to the sounds in the surrounding.
Qin Ruo instantly slowed down and used the Elemental Perception: Water to gain “sight” of his surroundings.
Very soon he discovered that this Bandit was not a regular one—although he did not use Dark Sight, his chosen location was strategic as his entire body blended into the shadows which could not be noticed without watching carefully. As such, the Bandit could observe most areas in Devil’s Swamp merely through the gap between the trees!
Besides, being in such a still and silent environment, even player coming from behind would definitely be detected by him.
It was a mere simple trick to conceal tracks, but he utilized almost all of the surrounding environment in it. He was no ordinary Bandit!
However, when Qin Ruo “found” a small insignia that only Clan members had on his chest, he tensed up at once.
It was an insignia surrounded by eight blue flames. In the center, the word “God” was written with such a powerful stroke that resembled the resilience and pride of the Jiang River.
Order of the Eight Gods Clan!
He was really from Order of the Eight Gods Clan. Their purpose should be to scout the area and wait for the players! However whether it was spy or assassin that was placed here, he was just a single red tagged Bandit… Death was coming for him! (Once a red tagged player is killed, he would be directly imprisoned in the sinful Underwater Prison, disabling one from being resurrection by Radiant Priests.)
After using Elemental Perception to scan everything within a radius of one hundred meters and confirming the situation around, Qin Ruo’s lip curled into a slightly cruel smile.
If it was any other class, perhaps he would not be so reckless…
Unfortunately, Bandits had the worst Magic Defense among all the classes. Their HP was also comparable to that of Elementalist. Once his whereabouts was known, any DPS class could defeat him!
‘Anyway… if you don’t go to hell, who would?!’
In the quiet Devil’s Swamp, a ripple appeared on the surface of the water. It spread out slowly and silently, not making a single sound.
The surrounding environment was still the same as before…
Everyone was calm. Noiseless.
“Godslayer” who was hiding in the darkness shifted his body undetected. Unsure if he had been staying here for very long, he sensed that the atmosphere had turned gloomy. Bored, he glanced at his watch—ten minutes had passed since he last caught a prey…
‘Why isn’t anyone coming?’
Suddenly, a warning sound 1 was heard!
However, it was too late. An extremely strong chill rose from behind all of sudden. He did not even get a chance to turn his head when a strong cold current froze his body starting from his neck and nerves in an instant.
