Closed Beta That Only I Played - Chapter 259
Chapter 259: New Hunting Ground (4)
Watching me charge at them, the crocodiles welcomed me violently by showing their teeth and slapping their huge tails.
So, at that moment, I thought of returning their violent gestures by attacking them physically, but I avoided their attack using Blink and penetrated into their midst because I first needed to check how powerful my attack would be.
“Ice Field! Multiple Thin Ice!”
After I penetrated into their midst, I turned my surroundings into ice terrain, as usual.
And as soon as that was done, I used one skill, namely, level 9 Blizzard, my most powerful skill, to express my joy of fighting them first.
Puck! Puck! Puck! Puck!
An enormous snowstorm was instantly generated which literally swallowed up the crocodiles. The crocodiles were massive, but the snowstorm was even bigger than them.
The snowstorm swept the crocodiles back and forth, and made them unable to control themselves.
Of course, they tried to attack me as if to show they were level 1300 monsters.
So I opened my mouth quietly and used a new skill that I had already tested multiple times against the cunning vampires.
It was a level 8 AOE skill that generated an ice tornado in a certain area.
In fact, I agonized a lot over whether to use the single target skill, ‘Ice Punishment’
Since I didn’t have as many single-target skills as AOE skills, I was all the more concerned.
But in the end, I chose an AOE skill.
Why? Because I liked it better.
Moreover, Ice Tornado was accompanied by a gust of wind that buffeted everything in the surrounding when its user’s Intellect exceeded a certain level. The higher one’s intellect, the more powerful the gust was. In other words, this was a skill that was too precious for me to give up, no matter how much I thought about it.
As if to confirm my choice was correct, Ice Tornado paid off nicely.
Certainly, the bodies of the crocodiles, who looked very heavy at first glance, did not fly into the air, but they floated a little bit. Then they gradually moved into the center of the ice tornado.
At the same time, fragments of ice from the ice tornado penetrated the crocodiles’ armor-like skin, which made them groan painfully.
Of course, Ice Tornado was not the only skill I possessed.
I had the terrific skill, namely, the whopping level 9 Blizzard.
It overlapped with Ice Tornado, making the snowstorm even larger.
Moreover, level 9 Blizzard was even more threatening in terms of damage alone.
There were more than ten crocodiles, but they disappeared in an instant.
“Well, that was easy…”
They were level 1300 monsters, so they were a little more powerful than level 1200 monsters.
Obviously, a 100 level gap could not be said to be small, but it was not too large either.
In other words, there was no chance that tremendously high-level monsters far outstripping those which appeared in the level 1200 hunting ground could appear suddenly in this hunting ground.
To be honest, I thought it didn’t matter even if more powerful monsters appeared because I would still be more powerful than them
Anyway, I did a few more tests by deliberately allowing some of the crocodiles to attack me. And I came to the conclusion that they were not as threatening as they looked.
At that moment, a message rang suddenly.
[You have leveled up.]
Of course, I did warm up in the Cunning Vampire Garrison right before I came here.
Despite that, it was not time for a message to ring yet.
Anyway, the fact that such a message rang meant that the EXP gains were rather good.
I had no choice but to smile in satisfaction at the message.
The 19 players watching Asirante fighting the monsters brilliantly were a mix of the guild leaders, their immediate family members as well as the elite players of each guild, so most of them were veterans with vast experience and remarkable discernment.
Therefore, their jaws dropped when they watched Asirante’s brilliant performance, for he hunted level 1300 monsters with only three skills.
Moreover, he was an ice-type wizard, one of those common classes that one could meet just about everywhere.
However, there was no ice-type wizard who had shown such tremendous power before.
“I know Ice Tornado causes a gust of wind, but I’ve never seen such a powerful gust, but I’ve never seen somebody actually causing such a gust.”
“You bet. I haven’t either.”
“Ice Tornado is not his only skill! Honestly, in my opinion, he could have hunted them using Blizzard alone, but he used Ice Tornado to kill them faster.”
As if they were deeply impressed, they commented about Asirante’s unbelievable performance. Among them was my mother, the only healer, who looked at me with a proud expression.
“I think we can keep hunting the monsters like we used to,” I commented after finishing the tests.
But things didn’t unfold as I expected.
“Ugh! My health…”
“Ooops! Hold me!”
“Don’t ever let the monsters bite you! Aside from the damage, the monsters will pull you in once they bite you!”
“Keep the formation! Kill them one by one!”
With seven tanks defending the surroundings, 11 dealers, except for my mother, the only healer, and me, kept attacking the monsters.
It was the standard way of attacking, but it was also the safest one.
Obviously, the tanks withstood the monsters’ attacks, while the dealers inflicted big damage on them.
However, the party was always dealing with five or more crocodiles at once, and they exhibited cognition befitting that of level 1300 monsters.
The seven tanks seemed to find it rather hard to block more than five crocodiles without the help of enchanters, and the crocodiles, who were pretty swift despite their huge build, tried to attack the dealers after noticing the tanks’ weakness.
Of course, most of the crocodile’s attacks failed, but they occasionally succeeded, which made the dealers shout, startled.
Obviously, those watching the fight could not help but feel unease.
They would not have felt so anxious if the monsters numbered only three or four.
However, when they killed one, another charged at them immediately, and sometimes even seven or more crocodiles charged at them.
Watching them struggle, I let out a sigh because that was not what I expected.
The players here were not typical users. In other words, they were guild leaders, their immediate family members and elite players of each guild.
Because of that, the items they had were different from what the typical users had.
No matter what, the guild leaders, in particular, must have given the best items to their immediate family members for this quest.
So, I had no choice but to wonder why they were struggling so much to hunt the monsters, no matter how many monsters they had to deal with.
So, I jumped right into the battlefield and got rid of the seven crocodiles at once, then opened my mouth quietly.
“Can’t you easily hunt the monsters at this level by yourselves?”

I was serious, but nobody there responded to my question.
Of course, someone replied in a different way.
My sister messaged me.
