Chapter 116: Some Balls You Got There
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
At that very moment in time, the Tier 3 Overlord, the Gargantuan Demoncroc no longer seemed to be the main character on the battlefield. Sudden changes kept happening to the situation, and the mysterious and powerful Clans—Black Jail and Carefree had stepped into the fray. They snatched the spotlight, which was supposed to be shined upon the Boss…
When the last player, who attempted to flee from the mouth of the Gargantuan Demoncroc and escape into the jungle marshes, fell on the vast main battlefield, the two Devilcroc Minibosses sprung into action. They were summoned halfway through the battle, but now, they lunged toward the thirty Black Jail Clan players. However, they fell right before four Black Jail Beastblood Berserkers and Titanwraith Berserkers with a tall splash of water!
Dealing with the two Tier 3 Elite Minibosses, the thirty players from Black Jail only used less than two minutes to sort the situation out… The only cost was that they could not immediately pick up the Potion materials from the cliff and put them into their backpacks—when players are under attack, Gathering would also be forcefully interrupted.
Through Elemental Perception: Water, Qin Ruo could instantly feel that the battlefield was covered in an extremely strange, yet heavy atmosphere. The appearance of this atmosphere was not due to the fact that the Gargantuan Demoncroc had paused briefly to stare at the people of Black Jail and the Carefree Clan in the distance. It was also not because the number of Tier 4 Devilcrocs in the swamps was gradually increasing! Instead, it was because… the 30 players of Black Jail were behaving extraordinarily calm while the members of the Carefree Clan were gradually clearing their way into the border of the vast swamp…
They were finally there!
The Carefree Clan Party, members of one of the seven most powerful forces in H&G!
Finally, Qin Ruo had the opportunity to make close contact and observe a Party under the Seven Great Leagues lay siege to a Boss. Once he set his thought on that, Qin Ruo could not help but feel a strange anxiety, and thrill bubbling up in his heart—when the League Parties lay siege to the Boss, it would be a great help in the coming days as long as Qin Ruo could learn from the experience.
To this day, Qin Ruo had not fully understood these powerful forces standing at the top of H&G. He had no idea how powerful these people exactly were. He was also not clear about everything else in the game as well. He did not even know how to compare his own strength with these players. He had no idea how far the gap between his strength and the strength of those powerful players was. He, who had made the decision to advance in the game, was eager to the point that he could not wait to understand all these things!
At that time, the Carefree Clan was all set for a showdown as they officially entered the battlefield!
As Radiant Priests from the Order of the Eight Gods retreated out of the battlefield like a tidal wave, nearly a hundred players wearing gleaming equipment pushed their way into the chaotic battlefield in an orderly manner. Although their progress was not fast, they looked confident and calm. Qin Ruo could even clearly see the faces of dozens of Beastblood Berserkers in the front row. They appeared joyous and at ease. It was completely unlike the anxious and heavy looks on the faces of those in the Order of the Eight Gods who were taking on the Gargantuan Demoncroc on the opposite side. Meanwhile, the Black Jail players were seemingly looking down on the Tier 3 Overlord as if they were not bothered by it. That confidence of theirs, which went without saying, was displayed to the fullest.
Looking at the other side, the Black Jail Clan Party… The expressions on their faces rendered Qin Ruo speechless!
It was clear that there was no player in the Gargantuan Demoncroc’s surroundings to draw its attention. It was also clear that more and more Tier 4 Devilcrocs in the area had begun to attack them… But the thirty men of Black Jail stood their ground as they did not seem to be leaving the perilous place. They did not show any resolution to assault the Gargantuan Demoncroc either. They only remained vigilant while they allowed the two Bandits to continue gathering the Potion materials on the cliff. It remained a mystery if they were confident that the Gargantuan Demoncroc would not approach and provoke them. Perhaps they really thought that the Gargantuan Demoncroc had changed its nature and became a vegetarian?
Outside, Qin Ruo had been worried for them for half a day!
However, the Gargantuan Demoncroc really did seem like it had changed its nature… Not only did it not assault the group of Black Jail players who were attempting to gather the Devil’s Snares, but it also did not take the initiative to approach the players of the Carefree Clan and attack them. It only backed off to the side, letting out continuous rumbling roars. They were deep and ominous. It also summoned newly-spawned Tier 4 Devilcrocs and commanded them to gather to its side from all directions in the vicinity. It was behaving as if it knew that those two groups of players were difficult to deal with.
Looking at the situation, Qin Ruo was rendered speechless.
‘Goddamn it, this is… Holy sh*t… Is it possible for a monster to also hear about the glorious deeds of the Seven Great Leagues? Perhaps monsters also knew how powerful the Seven Great Leagues are?! That’s just too extraordinary, right?!’
The atmosphere on the battlefield had turned strange.
At that moment, a Berserker walked out from among the players of Carefree Clan. Qin Ruo’s level was low, so he was not capable of viewing the Berserker’s detailed information. He could only make an assumption based on the equipment he saw the Berserker wearing. That Berserker was probably a Titanwraith Berserker like Slayer’s Heart. It was also likely that he was similarly powerful.
The Titanwraith Berserker’s physique appeared valiant and sturdy. He carried a gigantic broadsword that was two meters long and twenty centimeters wide easily on his shoulder. A valiant man with an awesome powerful sword… That combination could really complement each other. The Berserker seemed utterly carefree as he walked to the front from a row of Beastblood Berserkers at the back. The Berserker scanned the Gargantuan Demoncroc’s body, which was approximately ten meters long. He then rested his eyes on the players from Black Jail Clan who remained on the opposite side of the area.
“It’s time for Carefree Clan to do its thing. Any unauthorized personnel, please get lost!” His sonorous voice came out of his mouth heroically and echoed in all directions…
He truly had the style of someone from the League Clan. Even though those people were from Black Jail, the Berserker did not behave courteously at all towards them. Qin Ruo sighed quietly to himself as he felt more excited than before. He had subconsciously turned his eyes towards the location where Black Jail Clan continued to do what they were doing. He truly wondered how they would respond to the “order for guests to leave” issued by Carefree Clan. Well, it was rumored that the members of Black Jail Clan were a group of hardcore players who bowed to no one!
The second that thought crept up Qin Ruo’s mind, an Elementalist walked out from ranks of the Black Jail members as expected!
With the help of Elemental Perception: Water, Qin Ruo was only able to notice that three of Black Jail’s players possessed full sets of Dark Gold Equipment on them. Their equipment were too good to be true; this scared people! The others were also equipped with nothing less than Gold Equipment and Dark Gold Equipment. The weakest person among them seemed to only be equipped with two Violet garments…
Looking back at this side, even though the average quality of the equipment of Carefree Clan was a little inferior to Blackjail Clan’s, the number of players who were equipped with full sets of Dark Gold Equipment was higher than Black Jail’s side.
Qin Ruo quietly took a cold, deep breath in his heart. He was only relying on a few pieces of Gold Equipment to build up his fortune. It never crossed his mind that his Gold Equipment would be completely nothing in front of the League Clans and Black Jail Clan…
That was too much of a blow to a person’s spirit!
At that time, the Elementalist who walked out from the Black Jail Clan Party was also one of the Elementalists equipped with a full set of Dark Gold Equipment. He opened his mouth and said something to Carefree Clan, “Big Black, you dare show off your strength and power? Are you trying to pick a one-on-one fight?”
After he heard what the Elementalist impolitely said to the Carefree Clan, Qin Ruo could not refrain himself from laughing. That instant, he could not stop himself from coughing out loud, and the eyes of dozens of players from the two large Clans looked in Qin Ruo’s direction like knives. If Qin Ruo did not have his Aquamorph to shroud him from plain sight, countless holes would have been put in his body by those sharp eyes.
Oops! His presence was exposed…
Qin Ruo panicked. He remained silent as he swiftly changed his coordinates. Even though he knew that it was very difficult for the others to uncover his exact presence, the probability of him getting pulled out from hiding would be extremely high if he continued to remain in the same spot!
Almost at the same time, the Titanwraith Berserker whom the Elementalist from Black Jail called Big Black turned his head and looked in Qin Ruo’s direction. He then muttered gently to himself, “Some balls you got there… Hmph!” Indeed… it had been quite a while since they last encountered a player who was daring enough to peep from the side while they were working. The Titanwraith Berserker wondered who would be so daring to do this time…
As that Berserker spoke, Qin Ruo swiftly uncovered that ten players had suddenly charged out into the opening from the rear of the Carefree Clan Party! They charged rapidly, straight towards the spot where the coughing sound came from with the attempt to surround it. It also came as a surprise as shadows of members from Carefree Clan began to concurrently appear at the back…
That was impressive! They even had players ready for an ambush in the surroundings!
Qin Ruo quickly covered his breath! He reached into his backpack as he grabbed onto a Town Portal Scroll as tightly as he could.
Although he was not really convinced that those people would actually be capable of uncovering his exact spot, they were after all players from the Seven Great Leagues. Not to mention, Slayer’s Heart had also told him before that Qin Ruo would definitely not be the only player who could create his own Skill in the game… Hence, Qin Ruo could not rule out the possibility that his presence may still be discovered by the others.
In order to avoid offending the Seven Great Leagues, Qin Ruo had to get away from the place and get back to the city before his presence was discovered. Then he would be forced to deactivate the status of his Aquamorph—although the people charging over to his spot were red-named players, Qin Ruo would never want to offend those hoodlums from the Netherspirit’s Claw League. On top of that, he did not think that the strength of the Hunter Party of Netherspirit’s Claw would turn out to be as pathetic as the strength of the Order of the Eight Gods.
As expected from the Clan of the glorious Seven Great Leagues… The members of Carefree Clan did not actually bother themselves and spend too much energy on boring little incidents even though they had detected someone peeping from the side.
Big Black had returned his gaze and once again fixed his eyes on the people of Black Jail on the other side. Immediately after, he opened his mouth a little as he recalled the impolite words that the Elementalist of Black Jail said to taunt him. He purposely revealed a miserable expression on his face before he pressed his palm against his forehead and spoke with a clear voice.
“I say you, big brother, you guys are in the wrong now! How could I dare show off my strength in front of my brothers? Big Boss Black God is a friend to our Clan Leader; he’s also our boss. So brothers from Black Jail are also our brothers. In a manner of speaking, we’re not outsiders to each other, you know.”
Qin Ruo widened his eyes. They almost popped out the moment he heard what the Berserker said.
‘The Black Jail’s boss and Netherspirit’s second-in-command are like brothers?! What sort of joke is this?!’
“F*ck you… You only know how to butter people up as always! We’ll let you take on this crocodile then. After you’re done, get lost immediately!” It seemed that the Elementalist from Black Jail could not stand Big Black.
“Haha! Heard you loud and clear!” Big Black revealed a hippie smile on his face as he shouted loudly. Soon after, his face turned deadly serious and he took the initiative to charge wildly at the Gargantuan Demoncroc.
The moment he made his move, the buffs from several Priests and a white Aeromorph, which appeared as light as a feather, were cast upon the Titanwraith Berserker’s body. Right after that, the Titanwraith Berserker’s body faintly trembled for a while. Then, a red, bloody light was unleashed from his body along with a breathtakingly powerful aura!
