MMORPG: Rebirth Of The Legendary Guardian - Chapter 55
Chapter 55: Onward to the Middle Wing
After the server announcement flooded the entire server channel, all 20 men from The
Dominators and Sky High were left stunned. Those that were not in the midst of battle were
fine, but the other 15 people; 3 teams of 5 players were instantly distracted and got killed off
and appeared at the revive point.
The results were far too much for them to take in! Who were they to even compete with Zhang
Yang's team when they were still struggling at the first boss of the dungeon?
At Crimson Rage's side...
’’Sister Snow! It happened, just like you said it will!’’ Thorny Rose cried out admirably as Fire
Spirit Farr's body fell defeated. ’’How did you do it?! How did you know that Zhan Yu's team
would be the first to win the Front Wing's dungeon? If we had followed along to take on the
Front Wing, we'd be crying our eyes out by now!’’
Thorny Rose and the rest of the Crimson Rage party were currently in the Middle Wing
During the start of the fight, Crimson Rage's two 5-man party first entered the Front Wing
dungeon. However, after two minutes in, they quickly switched and headed to the Middle Wing
According to the official website, the Middle Wing's bosses were level 23 and level 24 while the
Front Wing bosses were level 21 and level 22. Normally, players would choose to tackle on the
easy ones first and left the harder selection for later on. However, Crimson Rage guild master
had a different way of approaching this matter. She chose the other way around to conquer the
Snow Seeker raised an eye brow and smiled lightly. ’’Even though I may have predicted that
Zhan Yu's team would be the one who will claim the 'First Clear' achievement, but I could not
have foreseen that they could complete the dungeon in such a groundbreaking speed! Sure, we
might have defeated the first boss, but Zhan Yu's team already cleared the Front Wing and may
be proceeding to the Middle Wing, and if he does, not even I would how that will turn out!’’
’’How could this be?’’ Thorny Rose expressed her disbelief. ’’We have gained the Boss'
information beforehand and had several days ahead to devise a strategy! We even died several
times to win this boss! Don't tell me that they also had a relative in the development team!?’’
Snow Seeker thought it through and shook her head at the impossibility.
’’According to my brother, during the boss skill design phase, everyone will be in charge of their
own department. There was absolutely no interaction nor communication between
departments! Furthermore, the initial designer and the editor were strangers who did not have
any connections. There was no possible way that a person would have the knowledge of all the
boss's skill! We only knew about the first boss' skills and gone through hell and back for the
second boss' skills!’’
Snow Seeker stopped her speech suddenly and realized something far more important.
’’I for one, hope that Zhan Yu had gotten himself some information leak. Or else, how could you
explain his incredible speed at clearing the Front Wing dungeon?’’ She shook her head to get rid
of that frightening thought.
’’Everyone! Get yourself together, even though we are one step ahead of them, we must not let
down our guard! They are... strong!’’
For some members of Lone Desert Smoke, they were excited when Zhang Yang, Hundred Shots,
and Slim and Handsome joined the guild. That was, however, just the tip of the iceberg. When
the server channel was flooded with the server announcement of their achievement, things got
even wilder! For almost half day long, the guild channel was just as noisy as a subway station!
Chattering and cheering were everywhere! Even though they did not contribute into the party
in taking the ’’First Clear’’ Achievement, they still praised and bragged around about their guild!
'Player Drizzler has surrendered the Guild Master position to Player Zhan Yu. Player Zhan Yu is
now the current Guild Master!'
Another important news!
Even so, members of Lone Desert Smoke did not express any objection to this matter! They
were actually happy with the change! After all, they have all heard of the name ’’Zhan Yu’’. The
guild members were happy and contented to have a professional commander like Zhan Yu to
lead the guild to glory!
’’So guys... should we just rest a bit or do we go on to raid the Middle Wing?’’ Little Snow asked
’’Strike the iron while it's hot! Of course, we shall move on!’’ Zhang Yang laughed loudly.
Pointing at the corpse, he continued, ’’However, let's distribute the equipment first!’’
’’Oh! Oh! Me! Me! Let me open it!’’ Drizzler jumped like a rabbit and quickly touched the corpse.
[Heavy Stone Boots] (Green-Copper, Metal Armor)
Level requirement: 2
’’Tch! Hey! Take this boot and raise your pathetic HP amount!’’ Drizzler rejected her roll for the
equipment. ’’Don't get yourself killed in just one strike!’’
It was not just Drizzler who had the thought to prioritize the main tanker's equipment; it was
in everyone's mind as well. They started to get a little cautious ever since they witnessed the
sheer attack power of a Hardcore-level boss. Zhang Yang laughed guiltily. He too knew that he
needed to pump up his HP to face a Herculean-like boss in the Hardcore Dungeon. He put on
the new equipment and also invested the SP he gained on <Block>, reducing its cooldown time
to only 5 seconds.
’’Friends of Lone Desert Smoke! Congratulations on obtaining the 'First Clear' Achievement! I
represent The Dominators to congratulate you on this awesome achievement!’’ Humbly
Gentleman posted in the local channel.
’’Hmph! What you say doesn't match your intention! Gentleman, my ass!’’ someone from Sky
High began insulting to provoke.
’’Huh? Where did this barking dog came from?!’’ Members from The Dominator started to
Sky High did not want to admit defeat, and they started to return their insults. Eventually the
entire local channel was flooded with words of scorn and abuses.
Zhang Yang's team started to feel a little annoyed. With a flick of a button, they turned off the
local server feed and the whole world went dead silent.
[Blinders Skirt] (Green-Copper, Cloth Armor)
Level requirement: 20
This equipment obviously belonged to Little Snow.
[Lined Cape] (Green-Copper, Cape)
Equip effect: Increase 1% critical strike.
Level requirement: 20
Only Dexterity and no Strength, this equipment was obviously suitable for either a Thief or a
Just when Fatty Han wanted Hundred Shots to have the item, Hundred Shots rejected his
chance to roll.
’’Fatty, it's fine now. My equipment is quite strong. You don't need to give it up anymore! From
now on, let's just roll for the next equipment fair and square!’’
’’Alright then!’’ Fatty Han nodded and accepted the cape.
The party then ran towards the dungeon entrance. Fatty Han suddenly turned around and
asked Zhang Yang, ’’Hey Little Yang, are there any hidden bosses in this dungeon?’’
Zhang Yang shook his head. ’’Not all dungeons have hidden bosses. As for Marzerway's Lair,
there are no hidden bosses in any of the three dungeons!’’
After a while, the party got out from the Front Wing and entered the left entrance of the
’’Ding! You have entered Marzerway's Lair: Middle Wing (Hardcore Mode)!’’
The atmosphere and background of this new dungeon was exactly the same as the previous
one. The only difference was the monster patrolling inside were now fire elementals.
[Demonized Fire Elemental] (Elite)
There were so many monsters here; too many in fact! With just a look, it felt like the room was
cramp and tight.
’’So-freaking many!’’ Fatty Han took in a deep breath.
’’Yeah. The monsters here are far stronger than before. They're all magic attack types. They just
love to spew fireball at you and those are painful as f*ck!’’ Zhang Yang explained. ’’However, the
good thing is that their HP is very low. They are about half of those elite monsters. We can just
use our AoE attacks and they can be killed off easily.’’
Zhang Yang walked ahead and used <Charge>to initiate the fight.
Zhang Yang cut down one of the monsters for 342 damage and gained 36 Rage. He immediately
used <Horizontal Sweep>.
Many more damage texts overlapped each other in the tight crowded space.
A total of 8 fire elementals had their targets set to Zhang Yang and began conjuring fireballs.
The team followed up and started unleashing their AoE skills like <Barrage>and <Tornado
3 seconds later, the monsters finished casting their spells and threw 8 fireball towards Zhang
Yang. A barrage of attacks landed on Zhang Yang, causing '-122', '-119', and '-125' damage to
him. Zhang Yang lost around 1000 HP in this wave.
Little Snow was prepared for it. The moment she saw damage texts popping out on Zhang
Yang's head, she waved her hand and used <Higher Healing>on him, restoring 400 HP. At the
same time, <Regeneration>healed him for 130 HP every 3 seconds. 2 seconds later, Little Snow
conjured another <Higher Healing>and healed Zhang Yang almost to his full HP.
Another 8 fireballs landed on Zhang Yang.
’’Argh....I don't want to do this anymore...This is so tiring!’’ But being the only healer in the
party, Little Snow had to continue her healing alone or else Zhang Yang would die and the
whole team would be defeated.
30 seconds into the battle and all of the minions were killed off, granting the party immense
Little Snow jeered at the hallway and saw waves and waves of minions patrolling. She turned
sour and said, ’’God, how long would this last!’’
’’Cousin, I'll give you a back massage after all these minions. Is that good enough?’’
Fatty Han suddenly gave a lusty expression. ’’Pressing and pushing is something only Fatty can
do best! I'd tell you, no one else could do it better! Little Snow, take my number and call me
whenever you're in the mood for a back massage. I'll be over in a jiffy!’’
Drizzler walked over to Fatty Han and observed his fleshy hands.
’’Huh. Now that I've seen your hand. I finally understand why the Mandarin language has the
phrase 'Salty Pig Hands', you pervert!’’
Everyone laughed for a bit and moved on forward.
The monsters were indeed strong and their attacks were stronger, but the only person working
furiously was Little Snow, while the rest of the party were calm and relax all the way.
20 minutes later, they finally arrived at the first boss.
[Fire Spirit Anni] (Green-Copper)
Standing at 10 meters tall, the gigantic elemental spirit was burning away like a huge bon fire
pillar. In this enormous palace, there were no other minions around anymore.
’’Alright, rape our ears, Little Yang!’’
Zhang Yang shook his head and sighed. He then began to explain the boss' strategy and skills.
’’As you could guess, the boss is a Spellcaster class. Its physical attacks are not strong so it will
cast <Flame Shot>at the person with the most aggro. The skill has a 3 second casting delay and
deals 1,000 damage per shot! Little Snow, just give up! As the only healer in this Hardcore Mode
dungeon, it is your fate to heal till you drop!’’
Fatty Han laughed and said, ’’Little Snow, just give up and listen to Little Yang!’’
The girls scolded together.
Zhang Yang expressed innocence. ’’Hey! Why am I in the same category as him?’’
Little Snow replied, ’’Birds of the same feather...’’
’’...flock together!’’ Drizzler continued her cousin's idiom. ’’The two of you looked like brothers
in arms. That is why both of you must share the same bad habit!’’
’’What!? Argh! A gentleman must not be arguing with a lady!’’ Zhang Yang gave up and used an
escape card to avoid the argument. He then continued his boss explanation. ’’The boss' second
skill is called <Knockback>. This skill will cause every target in its effective range to be knocked
back 3 meters behind, and will also receive 500 fire damage. At the same time, the target will be
inflicted with a debuff called <Combustible>, causing all fire magic damage to be increased by
50%! The debuff is quite dangerous. If I'm hit with <Flame Shot>and <Knockback>while
gaining the <Combustible>debuff, I will receive about 1,800 damage! I will be instantly killed if
I were to receive that combo without a full HP status!’’
