Reincarnation Of The Strongest Sword God - Chapter 409
Chapter 409 - The Difference of Tiers
The seconds ticked past .
The crowd seated in the spectator stands were on the edge of their seats . Although they were not the ones fighting, they were just as focused on the battle as the combatants in the arena .
This was the final match .
The result of this match would determine the fates of both sides . The winner would become the Guild Leader of Ouroboros, and their team members would obtain success and prestige . The loser, however, would have to leave God’s Domain forever and those who followed them would struggle in the future .
As a result, the tension was practically tangible in the stands .
Even the Elders observing the fight from the side felt heavy .
“Nimble Snake, show yourself if you dare! It has already been more than twenty minutes, yet, you still act like a coward! Even with the advantage of your class, you play such a dirty trick! Aren’t you ashamed of yourself?!” Zhao Yueru shouted, her crescent brows tightened as she frowned at the quiet arena . From the beginning, Nimble Snake had shown no sign of attacking . Zhao Yueru was greatly tempted to charge into the arena and fight the Assassin with Violet Cloud .
Nimble Snake was cunning . In order to gain victory, he would willingly act unscrupulously .
To guard against her opponent, Violet Cloud had to stay on high alert, focusing her senses to detect any movements .
At best, an ordinary person could only maintain their concentration for half an hour or so . If pushed any longer, not only would they greatly exhaust their mental fortitude, but they would also become susceptible to distractions . Soon, they would unconsciously reveal flaws in their defense .
However, this was a type of defense mechanism, so it was unavoidable .
Meanwhile, the match had stretched on for almost half an hour now .
Even Zhao Yueru felt her concentration begin to reach its limit . If this stalemate dragged on any longer, she would definitely falter .
When experts fought each other, even the slightest distraction could mean death…
“Hahaha! We never set a time limit for the matches, so it is up to them to choose how they fight . If you must blame someone, blame yourselves for not thinking of this beforehand . Don’t you think it’s a little too late to regret it now?” Blackhearted Arrow laughed triumphantly .
Zhao Yueru was suddenly speechless .
The statement was not false . It was true that they had not set a time limit for this competition . However, nobody ever expected Nimble Snake to do something so underhanded . Originally, Zhao Yueru had thought that she knew how low Nimble Snake would go .
However, it would seem that she still underestimated the treacherous bastard . It turned out that he did not have even the basic self-respect of an expert . He actually planned on dragging the match on for over half an hour .
“It was my mistake . I had forgotten to set a time limit despite knowing that we would face an Assassin,” Gentle Snow said remorsefully as she watched Violet Cloud, who already began to show signs of mental exhaustion .
She had blundered during such a crucial competition…
Without a doubt, her mistake had significantly decreased Violet Cloud’s chances of victory .
“Don’t be too nervous . Just watch . I believe that Violet Cloud knows what to expect,” Shi Feng advised, his gaze fixed on his guildmate as well .
“Relax . ”
Shi Feng was not the slightest bit worried at this moment .
Although Nimble Snake was indeed skilled, he still had a long way to go if he wanted to defeat Violet Cloud .
Finally, half an an hour had passed since the match had begun .
It seems that this little girl is close to reaching her limit .
All this time, Nimble Snake had carefully observed Violet Cloud from a distance . In reality, he had plenty of chances to make his move during this half an hour . However, he resisted . To be 100% certain that he would kill the Cleric, he chose to wait until this very moment .
Sweat had already appeared on Violet Cloud’s forehead . It was obvious that her concentration had reached its limit . Nimble Snake even slipped up deliberately and made a little noise when he was about ten yards from her . An expert with acute senses would detect the sound . However, Violet Cloud failed to sense it at all .
Sure enough, she has grown tired .
Nimble Snake was overjoyed . He then circled to Violet Cloud’s back, silently drawing closer .
Ten yards… Five yards… Three yards…
Soon, Nimble Snake arrived behind Violet Cloud and unsheathed his gleaming dagger, before stabbing it between the girl’s shoulders .
Ambush placed the target in a Fainted state for four seconds . During the early stages of God’s Domain, control removal skills were extremely rare . As long as his attack landed, Nimble Snake could kill her quickly with a chain of skills .
To ensure his victory, Nimble Snake had even used Second Acceleration . Even if Violet Cloud discovered his attack, it would still be impossible for her to block it .
The moment before Nimble Snake’s dagger sank into the Cleric, Violet Cloud released a mighty roar .
Terrorizing Roar Feared all enemies within a radius of 8 yards . Feared players would lose all control over their bodies .
Suddenly, Ambush struck Violet Cloud, and she entered a Fainted state, while Nimble Snake had been Feared by Terrorizing Rawr . Rawr .
“Violet is amazing . She actually managed to use Terrorizing Roar at the very last second . Now, neither side can attack each other . Moreover, now that Nimble Snake has been exposed, he has also lost the initiative of this fight . Next, once Violet distances herself from Nimble Snake, she can wear him down and finish him,” Zhao Yueru exclaimed after seeing Violet Cloud’s performance .
However, Gentle Snow said, “No . ”
“Snow, is there a problem?” Zhao Yueru asked curiously .
“Nimble Snake is Level 24, but Violet is only Level 22 . Though both of their control skills have a duration of 4 seconds, as Nimble Snake is two levels higher, the effect of Violet’s Terrorizing Roar will definitely be slightly weaker . It is highly possible that the skill’s effect will only last 3 . 5 seconds . However, Violet will remain incapacitated for a full 4 seconds . Nimble Snake can do a lot of things during that 0 . 5-second gap,” Gentle Snow said with a grim expression . Although Violet Cloud’s counterattack was marvelous, there was a small level-gap between them .
“Does that mean… we’ve lost?” Zhao Yueru’s expression suddenly became melancholic .
Cao Chenghua had also revealed a victorious smile .
As soon as the control effect on Nimble Snake ended, the result of this match would be set in stone .
However, Shi Feng suddenly smiled and said, “No, we’ve won . ”
“Won?” Zhao Yueru turned to look at Shi Feng . Whispering, she said, “But Violet’s Fainted duration is longer than Nimble Snake’s . How is she going to win?”
“You’ll find out,” Shi Feng laughed .
Shi Feng confused every spectator . However, since an expert like Shi Feng had said such a thing, he had his own reasons .
“What nonsense,” Blackhearted Arrow scoffed as he glanced at the distant Shi Feng . Ridiculing, . Ridiculing, he said, “It is common sense that the level suppression in God’s Domain is severe . One will only suffer if there is a difference of three levels . Although Nimble Snake is only two levels higher, it is enough to weaken a skill’s effect significantly . What an ignorant fool–”
However, before Blackhearted Arrow could finish…
Inside the arena, Violet Cloud suddenly recovered ahead of Nimble Snake .
“No… How is this possible! It hasn’t even been three seconds!” Blackhearted Arrow’s eyes nearly popped out of their sockets .
Shi Feng was the only player who was not surprised .
None of them could understand how Violet Cloud recovered first .
What a pity . You might be two levels above me, but I am one tier above you .
Violet Cloud looked at Nimble Snake, who currently shivered uncontrollably on the spot, smiling faintly as she waved her staff . A black magic array then formed beneath Nimble Snake’s feet .
Good . I still have a chance . Nimble Snake, who had originally begun to despair, suddenly saw hope . Violet Cloud had foolishly chosen a spell with a long casting time .
Although Nimble Snake still had no control over his body, he could see and hear without any issues .
The magic array forming beneath him needed one second to complete . Meanwhile, he was less than one second from reaching the 3 . 5-second duration of his Feared state . At that time, he could simply use Vanish to avoid Violet Cloud’s spell .
However, as if ignorant of this fact, Violet Cloud continued chanting her incantation .
Just as the 3 . 5 seconds were almost up, and Nimble Snake was about to use Vanish…
What’s going on? Nimble Snake suddenly noticed that he still had no control over his own body .
Meanwhile, the magic array Violet Cloud summoned began to activate .
