Closed Beta That Only I Played - Chapter 217
Chapter 217: Counterattack (4)
“Bind them! Iron Shackles!”
“My body will be solid steel!”
“Breath of Destruction.”
“Solid Earth Spear!”
“Biting Wind’s Spirit Attack!”
As Chairman Ryu Sechi said, the battle yesterday was only a prelude to the main fight.
Therefore, today both sides fielded their main forces.
On the central battlefield there was fierce combat going on between 40,000 members of the Mitsuya Guild and 50,000 of the Myongjin & Mirae Alliance.
More precisely, 40,000 Mitsuya Guild members vs 30,000 Myongjin and 20,000 Mirae members. However, since this battle was clearly led by Myongjin, nobody took issue with the fact that there were more Myongjin members fielded compared to Mirae
Anyway, this was a battle involving a total of 90,000 members.
Both sides killed and were killed constantly, but there was no tangible decrease in the overall number of combatants because there were simply too many.
Although the main battle just started, I messaged my father as I wanted to go and fight right now.
Of course, it wasn’t because I was anxious to fight. Unlikemonster hunting that rewarded me with EXP and miscellaneous items, what I got from killing users was only an increase in the number of kills by +1.
However, I thought it would be better for me to step out first because if I was dispatched during a crucial stage of the battle and the exceptional message rand 30 minutes late like yesterday, I would be in big trouble. It was better to step out now and wait out the possible 30 minute timer while the situation was not so serious.
My father agreed, so I finally stepped onto the central battlefield.
Obviously, I stepped forward like I did yesterday.
However, unlike yesterday, everybody including the enemies paid attention to me. Following my footsteps, two people from the enemy camp slowly walked toward me.
They were the Oizuki brothers.
Anyway, we were approaching each other gradually.
Despite the fierce battle going on with no clear distinction between friend or foe, they all split like the Red Sea and made way for us.
In no time I confronted the Oizuki brothers.
At that moment, a message that I didn’t want rang.
[Trait: You can’t wear items due to the curse of the Item Master.]
[Trait: You can’t use your skills due to the curse of the Skill Master.]
No matter how much I thought about it, this was a scam.
Although I expected such a message, I found myself letting out a helpless sigh.
But before I sighed again, however, another message rang.
[Trait: There is a space for an item that escapes the curse of the Item Master.
[Trait: There are skills and skill points that escape the curse of the Skill Master.
-Limited skill ‘Savant,’ 5 skill points.
I had no choice but to smile at the unexpected message.
At the same time, I quietly opened my mouth.
“Blink. Ice Field. Blizzard.”
[You have chosen Blink, Ice Field, and Blizzard.]
And I was not done yet.
[Currently, among the strength, agility, stamina, willpower, and intellect that Lumen, Asirante has, the most outstanding stat is intellect.
-Current Intellect: 28607.
-For 30 minutes, your intellect will be changed to 57214.
-After this 30 minute period ends, Savant will go on a 10 day cooldown.]
I used Savant which I didn’t use yesterday.
After that, I charged at them using Blink.
Right at the Oizuki brothers?
No, this time I charged at tens of thousands of enemies because I thought I didn’t have to deal with the Oizuki brothers by myself.
Even if my items and skills were cursed by them, I was confident of beating them easily if both of us could move freely. Especially as I currently possessed 57,000 intellect and level 9 Blizzard.
“Ice Field! Blizzard!”
Puck! Puck! Puck! Puck!
“What the heck!”
“Why did he attack us?”
Obviously, the enemies thought I would fight the Oizuki brothers first.
After watching me appear in their midst using Blink, they let out shocked complaints instead of attacking me.
But they had to avoid me first to survive. Of course, it was too late.
“Damn it! The damage is so huge…”
The healers, enchanters, as well as the damage dealers began to fall.
Of course, I was not content with watching them collapse because unlike my skills, I could swap my items.
Those who were already in the striking range of my Ice Field and Blizzard collapsed.
I didn’t have to use them twice. Furthermore, the Ice Emperor’s guardian sword already had level 3 Ice Weapon imbued in it.
A few minutes later.
There were some other enemies who charged at me.
“Are you running away?”
“We are your rival, Asirante!”
They were the Oizuki brothers.
So, I kindly replied to them, “Yep, I’m running away. And I’ll keep running because it is a foul with me being affected by your curses like this. By the way…”
While pointing the +5 Enhancement Ice Emperor’s guardian sword at them, I spoke to them seriously this time.
“Are you confident in beating me? If you don’t run away like yesterday, I will fight you.”
Obviously, I was the winner of yesterday’s fight.
It was the Oizuki brothers who retreated.
Perhaps that’s why they suddenly stopped while charging at me arrogantly.
“What the heck? Are you guys scared of me?”
After that, I did not provoke them any more because at least until the retention time of Savant expired, my main enemies were the countless enemies.
Anyway, I used Ice Field and Blizzard while penetrating into the enemy camp using Blink.
I also swung +5 Enhancement Ice Emperor’s guardian sword on and off.
Of course, the Oizuki brothers didn’t sit idle. They kept attacking the players of the Myongjin and Mirae Alliance constantly.
In particular, the younger brother Oitsuki, who possessed the trait of Skill Master, launched a series of powerful attacks. Of course, he was not as strong as me.
As time passed, the gap in strength between both forces grew bigger and bigger.
At the Mitsuya Guild one hour later.
Chairman Ryu sighed while watching the central battlefield.
Of course, the battle was still going fiercely.
In particular, Asirante, who used to show off mighty power, had noticeably weakened. Nonetheless, he still had a monstrous power.
Of course, Chairman Ryu set a trap to capture Asirante by aiming at Blink’s loophole. But he failed.
Kimoshita, the head of the intelligence department, approached him and opened his mouth.
“In order to catch Asirante, I think we need not only the item and skill masters but the stat master as well.”
“What you mean is that it’s not enough to cut off his arms and legs.”
“Yes, sir. Of course, we haven’t yet cut off his arms and legs properly.”
Chairman Ryu did not show any reaction.Read latest Chapters at wuxiamobile.com Only
Then he slowly opened his mouth.
“We have lost this time. Let’s retreat. Myongjin probably won’t chase us because they don’t want to escalate the fight.”
In the end, Chairman Ryu admitted his defeat and ordered a retreat, greatly regretting he underestimated Asirante, not to mention the Myongjin and Mirae Alliance.
