Hurricane City – Chapter 94 (The Courage Challenge – 23)
Xu Lin completely lost her ability to attack. For a Mage without power, you couldn’t expect her to attack with her staff. Seeing that Sealmaster wearing all leathered armor, it shouldn’t be a Class with high Attack.
Just when I was thinking about that, Twittered Voice surprisingly equipped a bow from his inventory and started to shoot the female Mage in front of him, who had lost her resistance power. Although his Attack wasn’t high, but against a Mage with low Health, it was already enough.
15 seconds had passed and the sealing effect had disappeared!
While she moved, Xu Lin released the Ice Arrow that she had been holding for so long. Too bad, at current, the Sealmaster’s health was still full, while Xu Lin’s had almost hit the bottom.
A few seconds later, Xu Lin was unwillingly sent out of the arena, her face filled with resentment.
It wasn’t surprising. If I were killed in that way, I would be gloomy as well.
The semi-finals arrived, more intense matches would begin. The first match Lu Xue Han against Murong Shan Shan!
This match was hard to predict. Although Lu Xue Han had two purple equipment, but Murong Shan Shan’s operating skill was too formidable, which was also the most important factor in this game.
Xu Lin already sat next to me. She looked at the two people in the field and asked, “Lin Fan, do you think our Xue Han can win?”
“Very difficult.” I rubbed my nose. Seeing Xu Lin’s puzzled eyes, I quickly explained, “Although Xue Han’s equipment are better than Murong Shan Shan’s, but it’s only adding to healing effects. When it comes to a fight, her damages would be far lower than Murong Shan Shan’s. It’s hard to tell whether she can win or not.”
Xu Lin nodded, “That make sense. Eh? The match is starting!”
At the arena, Lu Xue Han threw a Curso upon Murong Shan Shan, immediately followed by Retribution and a Mana Shield. Her consistent and smooth operating skill made the audience gasped in admiration. But Murong Shan Shan movement skill was even more amazing. With a nice move, she had already blocked Lu Xue Han’s path and slashed a blue Sword Qi. Lu Xue Han’s movement wasn’t as good as Ye Qiu, so she wasn’t able to dodge it. Although she had restored her Health back with a Healing, but she was already put in a passive position with this strike.
Fortunately, under the effect of the Curse, Murong Shan Shan’s speed had been significantly reduced. Taking advantage of this situation, Lu Xue Han rapidly retreated a few steps back, getting out of Murong Shan Shan’s Sword Qi attack range. She continuously cast Retribution and Curse out, constantly reducing Murong Shan Shan’s Health. While Lu Xue Han maintained a safe distance, she continued to cast Mana Shield to ensure her safety.
“It seems the situation is getting better, whoa!” Xin Yu said, smiling.
I didn’t expect Lu Xue Han’s control skill and fighting instinct had made such a big progress. It looked like the result of this match was really hard to tell.
Murong Shan Shan didn’t seem to worry and just tried to get close to Lu Xue Han. The arena wasn’t too big, thus, the space where Lu Xue Han could move was limited as well. Although Murong Shan Shan was moving very slowly, but it was obvious that she constantly reducing the distance between them, which was giving a big pressure to Lu Xue Han.
Four minutes had already passed. Murong Shan Shan’s nearly 2,000 points of Health had dropped to less than a third. But we could also see that Lu Xue Han didn’t have much mana left either. She won’t be able to use the healing for several times anymore.
The situation practically had completely changed at the moment when the curse upon Murong Shan Shan dispersed!
Running in a straight line toward Lu Xue Han’s side, Murong Shan Shan released a normal attack. Her Attack was simply too high, Lu Xue Han’s Mana Shield was instantly cut broken. A Heavy Strike and a Combo fell upon her right afterward…
Obviously, Murong Shan Shan had leveled up her Combo to Level 4 already. Three consecutive attacks had left Lu Xue Han’s only with a little bit Health. But, it was in that 0.1 seconds margin between the Heavy Strike and Combo, where Lu Xue Han unexpectedly had miraculously cast a small healing. At the same time, with a flash, Lu Xue Han had already moved outside of Murong Shan Shan’s attacking range.
Unfortunately, in the 0.5 seconds gap after the attack, Murong Shan Shan threw a Sword Qi that accurately hit Lu Xue Han’s body…
System Notification: Congratulations to player Murong Shan Shan for defeating Green Veggies Cocoa and qualified into the Finals!
In the end, Murong Shan Shan still won with her terrifying attack power!
The next match was about to begin. My opponent was that mysterious Sealmaster – Twittered Voice.
Until the match started, I still hadn’t figured out how to deal with this mysterious Sealmaster. And suddenly there was the system notification: You were hit by Twittered Voice sealing skill. You lose your physical attack capability for 15 seconds!
This time, the Sealmaster was even more showing off, I had no idea what he really wanted to pull off. When he equipped a wand from his inventory, I could only look in confusion. I got the answer when he cast a Fireball upon me… This guy was actually practicing both magic and physical attacks, although both of it was just rubbish. That Fireball had just knocked away 50 points of my Health…
With a flash, I moved closer to the Sealmaster. I was just waiting for the sealing effect to wear off.
The 15 seconds had passed! Using my fastest speed, I released a Frozen Blade, followed by a Combo and Heavy Strike to complete my offering!
Everywhere was quiet. It turned this hidden Class player was nothing special. In the condition of lower level and equipment, the hidden Class players could also be cut like a melon or vegetables. From the rumors, it was said that the hidden Class players could kill countless of expert players. To think about it, it was all nonsense that the company had such a setting. Instead, it was just a bunch of good for nothing!
Okay, everything was clear now. The last match of the competition was still Murong Shan Shan against me. Since she still couldn’t equip that purple armor, her odds of beating me were also lower.
My heart went ecstatic. I would at least end up as a runner-up. Even as a runner-up, there will be a 100,000 RMB reward, which was much more than many white-collar’s annual salaries!
During the break time, a message came in. It was Murong Shan Shan…
“Lin Fan, it will be a same team final, which means that 600,000 RMB is already in our hands. Do you have anything in mind?”
“Of course. Buy a house and getting married. Eh? It should be first to find a wife. Shan Shan, would you be interested?”
Murong Shan Shan smiled sweetly, “We’ll talk about it after you buy a house~!”
After hearing what she said, I might get an insomnia tonight…
The exciting moment had finally arrived. For the sake of 500,000 RMB, no matter what, I would stake my life for it!!
Like last time, Murong Shan Shan leaned on her sword with a carefree look. Throwing a casual smile on her cute white face to the millions of viewers, they all went frantic!
Her bright eyes and white teeth, and with a beauty like an elf, just like the phrase “a breathtaking beauty,” I couldn’t stop looking at her…
