Chapter 548: Clomaros’ Seven Kills
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
“God of War, I have completed your mission, come out!” shouted Dark Emperor.
Suddenly, the surrounding air was compressed, producing quite a few tears in the void. The compressed air was being squeezed into blocks of crystals, which then fell from the sky. Within the void, the body of the God of War gradually appeared. The majestic God of War had a burly stature, and he wore thick and heavy golden armor while holding a golden sword in his hand!
It was still the first time for many people to truly meet one of the so-called gods in the game. In that instant, they finally understood what was upstanding and dauntless. The moment the figure of the dignified God of War appeared, the restless, slaughter-filled battlefield quieted down in but an instant.
“Who is the one who summoned me?” The God of War’s voice resounded throughout the sky like a tolling bell.
Dark Emperor said respectfully, “God of War, it’s me! I have succeeded where you failed and destroyed the divine equipment Fallen. Please give me my reward and kill all these people!”
The God of War did not reply but just looked down on him from above.
Dark Emperor was stunned. “What’s the matter? God of War!”
According to the usual mission process, in the final stage, it should be a piece of cake for the God of War to do something as easy as that, shouldn’t it? Just what was going on?
“God of War…” At that moment, a deep and low voice sounded behind Dark Emperor.
It was Lin Jie!
He first bowed, which was the standard etiquette, and said afterward, “God of War, the Undead General, who had previously used underhanded methods and taken the chance to blaspheme your name, a majestic being, is dead. I killed him!”
This time, the God of War replied, “You, are able to kill him?”
“Yes. I defeated the Undead General, who did not have even 1/10,000 of your strength, in the same way, he had blasphemed the invincible you back then. That’s right, I took advantage of his weakened state and successfully killed him,” said Lin Jie in a righteous tone.
Lin Jie pointed out how weak his strength was, and that he had used tricks to kill Alpistin while flattering the God of War to the nines. Lin Jie pictured the God of War’s loss to Alpistin as a lucky fluke, as the latter had found him in a weakened state and ambushed him.
If Savage Blade’s members were present, their jaws would most probably drop.
The imposing, majestic, and insufferably arrogant Codename Lone Wolf actually knew how to curry favor? Also, his flattering skills were so smooth that he took credit without diminishing the God of War’s prestige in the least. Not only so, but Lin Jie was also praising the God of War’s invincible strength and mightiness. It was outstanding for Lin Jie to have such proficiency in sucking up to others, killing three birds with one stone!
“You, have done very well!” The God of War was satisfied with Lin Jie’s reply. “Not only have you entered the Tribe of Darkness with the identity of a Guild of Light human, but you have also killed Alpistin. Say, what reward do you want?”
Three options popped up in front of him—Equipment, Tool, Secret Legend!
“I want to be able to obtain your Heritage!” said Lin Jie.
“Alright, then!” replied the God of War. “Courage, wit, and strength are all the qualities a Warrior should have. You have fulfilled these conditions, so you can inherit my will.”
—’You have learned the Mystic Skill Book [Clomaros’ Seven Kills].’
“On what basis? God of War, I refuse to comply!” snarled Dark Emperor, “The person who killed Alpistin’s clone was me, and the person who destroyed the divine equipment Fallen, which even you could not, was also me! Why are you giving the reward to him!? What you could not do, I have helped you to complete them all! Shouldn’t you reward me!?”
Lin Jie could not help but feel a trace of sympathy for Dark Emperor. ‘Such a pitiful child, why don’t you understand? The God of War is your leader now. Would a leader allow you to be more powerful than him? Would the leader let you do something even he could not do it? Even if you completed it, you should also say that it was all due to the leader, and it had nothing to do with you at all. That’s the correct way to do things.’
However, the God of War still had the dignity of a god. After rewarding Lin Jie, he pierced his sword towards the passageway in front of him, and a crack in space instantly appeared.
“Human, I give you 1 minute to return to your land.”
The God of War’s figure then disappeared just like that.
“I- I f*cking can’t accept this! I refuse to comply!” Dark Emperor was completely enraged. He had put in all his hard work and contributions and had not even hesitated to destroy the divine equipment and commit the crime of treason. Dark Emperor had done all that to obtain the God of War’s reward. Surprisingly, he did not obtain anything! Also, after he returned to the Royal Capital of Darkness, he would be immediately hunted down by all the NPCs and players.
That couldn’t happen!
Dark Emperor looked at the passageway in front of him and recklessly charged into it!
“He escaped!” shouted Graceful Snake.
“There’s no need to chase him, in the land of Guild, he is already a dead person.” Lin Jie waved his hand. At that moment, the originally one-sided battlefield completely fell apart after Dark Emperor disappeared. All the players belonging to the Blood-Sucking guild were killed.
Tenka Fubu said to Lin Jie respectfully, “Thank you very much for your help! We, the Scarlet Mercenary, from today onwards, will be the brother organization of Brotherhood. Afterward, when the camp war is released, the Scarlet Mercenary shall be your strongest cooperator!”
Graceful Snake looked at Lin Jie in astonishment. “Brotherhood? What Brotherhood? Brotherhood, you mean that Brotherhood?!! Just what is going on?”
“Very good, but how are you planning to deal with this situation next?” asked Lin Jie calmly.
“With Blood-Sucking’s ability, it would not be that simple to suppress them. However, the elite team’s slaves are all here, which means that 50% of the top players have already lost their battle prowess. I will immediately contact other guilds to form an alliance to suppress Blood-Sucking!” said Tenka Fubu. “Leader, please accept these 3,000 slaves! If you come to the Tribe again in the future, I will prepare ten times the amount as the payment for giving us the chance to overthrow Blood-Sucking!”
Lin Jie laughed heartily. “Alright! Tenka Fubu, you have ambitions, and so do I. Before our ambitions collide, we will help each other! This batch of slaves, I’ll take them, but I will not mistreat you either. Today, I will help you to bleach the elite team’s 300 members! Holy Light Stone of Grace!”
As Lin Jie summoned, the radiant Holy Light Stone of Grace rose up gradually and floated in the sky!
Instantly, countless souls started to revive on the Holy Light Stone of Grace.
“This is— Alright! Priests, revive them, and kill them!” Tenka Fubu was a little moved. He had heard about the Holy Light Stone of Grace’s effect before. Since Lin Jie was willing to take that item out, it was apparent that Lin Jie was full of sincerity and trust!
“That stone is the witness of our alliance. Today, I will give it to you!” said Lin Jie.
At that moment, the teleportation passageway was about to close. He bade farewell to Tenka Fubu and chased all the slaves inside before leaving the land of Tribe.
He knew that after today, the power distribution in the Royal Capital of Darkness would be completely changed!
—’You have entered Miglis Volcano.’
The space passageway the God of War had opened was like a Random Teleportation Scroll and directly threw Lin Jie into that map. The Miglis Volcano ranged from Level 45 to 55, from the bottom of the foot to the peak of the mountain. Many Volcano Elves and Fire-attribute wild beasts were spawned there.
Lin Jie had arrived at a place where he could feel the scorching hot air when breathing. What’s worse, a huge Flame Earth Dragon was lying in front of him!
[Blaze Earth Dragon Overlord] (Dark Gold Boss)
Health Points: 1,500,000
Magic Attack: 1,029-1,526
Special Feature: Thick Flame Skin
The Earth Dragon was awakened from its slumber and realized that 3,000+ people had actually appeared in front of it. Also, most of them were ferocious, and almost naked, Orcs. The Earth Dragon roared fiercely and instantly released an intense flame from its sharp mouth. The flames immediately ignited the Orc team. These Orcs were all slaves that had been released from their contracts and were filled with the desire to live. Upon seeing such an attack, a total of 80% of the Orcs started to escape everywhere in disorderly haste. Only a rare few of the Orc slaves raised their weapons and started to join the battle.
The slaves also had various personalities, some were belligerent, cowardly, hot-blooded, and so on. Their different personalities led them to react differently when facing danger.
“Just nice, I’ll use you to practice!” Lin Jie swung his sword in a grandeur manner, and it was like the air had been sliced into threads, then within the threads, whirlwinds were formed. It was like a large sack being cut open. Those fierce gusts of wind flew around everywhere and instantly surrounded the Earth Dragon. Hideous injuries were formed by being sliced by the wild whirlwinds, and with a boom, the Earth Dragon was actually flipped over!
The first skill of Clomaros’ Seven Kills—Chaotic Wind Kill!
[Chaotic Wind Kill]: You will release a slash of gale to a single target and deal 170% damage to the target. At the same time, a Floating effect will be produced. The larger your Strength Judgment, the more effective the Floating effect will be. Cooldown time is 30 seconds.
In Lin Jie’s previous life, he had never come in contact with the Mystic Skill Book, Clomaros’ Seven Kills. As its name suggested, a total of seven skills were recorded within it—it was worthy of its name as a Legendary Mystic Skill Book! However, similar to the Mystic Skill Book Sea Riding skill, the skills of Clomaros’ Seven Kills were unable to be simultaneously activated—there were various different activation conditions.
However, as compared to the unfixed activation conditions of Sea Riding skill, Clomaros’ Seven Kills was much simpler. As the first skill, there were no requirements for the first skill, Chaotic Wind Kill. Meanwhile, the activation condition for the second skill [Lightning Kill] was to kill a Thunder-attribute Boss, above Dark Gold, and 20 levels higher than Lin Jie.
The more powerful the Mystic Skill Book was, the more abnormally hard the conditions for unlocking the skills would be!
However, the effect of Chaotic Wind Kill was overbearing as it could even flip an Earth Dragon! Seeing how the Earth Dragon fell to the ground, many belligerent slaves raised their giant axes and heavy shields one after the other and attacked vigorously. Although the Damage Dealt was not high, they had the numbers. After a round of attacks, the Boss’ health points had actually decreased by 5%.
Lin Jie flapped his Holy Light Winged Armor and directly landed on the Earth Dragon’s nose. That could ensure that the continuous Earth Dragon’s attacks would not kill the slaves since these slaves were rare resources. He held the specially-made sheath in his left hand and the hilt of the sword in his right.
One could only hear a swoosh as Nukitsuke was activated!
The arc-shaped Blade Aura exploded in front of the Earth Dragon vigorously, and the sound of the Blade Aura slicing the dragon’s scales pierced one’s ears.
“Hahaha, Nukitsuke’s damage output can be compared to my Army Obliteration, and there is no starting move. It is definitely needed when wanting to trick enemies.” Lin Jie laughed heartily, as such a skill was really to his liking! The trip to Tribe was really fruitful!
However, at that moment, the situation took a 180-degrees turn!
The huge bloody mouth of the Earth Dragon suddenly opened up, and a flame the size of a buffalo was shot towards the team of slaves!
