Reincarnation Of The Strongest Sword God - Chapter 410
Chapter 410 - Unpredictable Astromancer
“What’s going on with Nimble Snake?” Cao Chenghua asked, having paid attention to the system clock all this time . “Isn’t he two levels higher than that Cleric girl?”
Nimble Snake had clearly been incapacitated for over 3 . 5 seconds now, yet, he was still Feared . Meanwhile, Violet Cloud had long since regained her freedom .
This series of events had shattered Cao Chenghua’s understanding of God’s Domain completely .
Even Zhao Yueru, who had thought that they had lost, was dumbfounded by what she saw .
Gentle Snow’s gaze also held doubt as she watched the battle inside the arena .
The scene happening before her made no sense .
Among the crowd, only Shi Feng knew that Nimble Snake had fallen into a trap .
Compared to level suppression, tier suppression was far more powerful . It was like comparing the fist of an infant and a fist of an adult . The combatants were on completely different levels .
As a Tier 1 player, even if Violet Cloud fought a Tier 0 player who was ten levels above her, her control skills would be 100% effective or more . On the other hand, when a Tier 0 player used a control skill against a Tier 1 player ten levels below them, the effect of their control skills would weaken by at least 30% .
This was the harsh reality of gap in tiers .
This was why high-tiered players were so valuable and so overwhelmingly strong .
Before anyone in the spectator stands could properly analyze the situation, Violet Cloud sealed her opponent inside a dark and silent barrier . Nimble Snake felt as if he were locked inside a huge coffin .
This barrier stunned the watching crowd . Except for Shi Feng, of course .
Nobody knew how powerful this Black Coffin was, and they did not know what was special about it . However, every player present was an expert, and when the crowd looked at the pitch-black barrier, they felt their souls tremble with fear . The Black Coffin was like a giant beast, and only death awaited those who were devoured .
After trapping Nimble Snake inside the Black Coffin, Violet Cloud immediately distanced herself from it .
The Black Coffin would gradually dissipate after three seconds . By the time it vanished, Violet Cloud was already more than 20 yards away from Nimble Snake . Even if Nimble Snake wanted to launch a counterattack, he would find it extremely difficult to do so from such a distance .
Eh? What’s going on? Why didn’t I receive any damage? Nimble Snake had originally thought he was dead for sure . After all, an advanced spell that took an entire second to cast must be frighteningly powerful . However, he was actually unharmed . Is it because of my level that the spell’s damage was nullified? Or maybe this is only a control spell?
Nimble Snake relaxed . He then focused his gaze on the distant Violet Cloud .
Although this distance was slightly disadvantageous to him, he had many ways to resolve this minor problem .
Suddenly, Violet Cloud waved her staff, and Sacred Sanctions descended from the sky, falling towards the Assassin .
In response, Nimble Snake sneered as he started moving . With little effort, effort, he dodged the attack and charged at Violet Cloud .
However, Nimble Snake quickly discovered that something was amiss . Somehow, his HP suddenly fell by 500 points, and a moment later, it had fallen by another 500 points . Nimble Snake only had slightly more than 3,100 HP . Now that he had suddenly lost 1,000 HP, he only had around 2,100 HP left .
But nothing hit me! Nimble Snake was 100% certain that he had dodged the several Sacred Sanctions .
Before Nimble Snake could figure out what had happened, Violet Cloud sent another barrage of Sacred Sanctions towards him .
Nimble Snake advanced once more to dodge the attacks . However, he lost another 500 HP the moment he moved .
Violet Cloud sent an attack once more . Knowing that he could no longer afford to lose HP, Nimble Snake started using his daggers to fend off the Sacred Sanctions . This time, he did not receive any damage .
“I was found out?” Violet Cloud giggled .
Astromancers possessed very few spells that dealt high damages . A majority of their attacks were strange and unpredictable . This was what Violet Cloud had discovered after researching her new class . Even until now, Violet Cloud had yet to grasp the true essence of an Astromancer completely .
Black Coffin was one such skill . Any players caught by the spell would lose HP when they moved . Meanwhile, the amount of HP they lost depended on the spell caster’s Intelligence . In addition, Black Coffin also had a Silence effect . This spell worked wonders on a melee classes .
By now, Nimble Snake had grasped the general gist of the situation . situation . However, when he thought about how he could neither move nor use any skills, only enduring a beating, he suddenly grew sullen .
The crowd was also amazed upon seeing the effects of Violet Cloud’s skill .
“This skill is so powerful! So that’s why Little Sister Violet used it! Nimble Snake is dead for sure . By the time he reaches Little Sister Violet, his HP will have fallen to nothing,” Zhao Yueru exclaimed .
“Although it is powerful, this move has a glaring flaw,” Shi Feng said, smiling .
“Flaw?” Zhao Yueru wondered but quickly understood . In just a moment, her excited heart froze .
Since Nimble Snake lost HP whenever he moved, he would be fine if he stood still . With Nimble Snake’s capabilities, he could easily block the Cleric’s attacks . Unless Violet Cloud could suddenly become an Elementalist…
Moreover, since it was a spell’s effect, it had a duration . When the spell’s duration ended, Nimble Snake could move freely once again .
Since Zhao Yueru could figure out this simple solution, Nimble Snake could certainly figure it out as well . Indeed, Nimble Snake had simply chosen to remain where he was for now as he waited for time to pass .
Surprisingly, upon seeing Nimble Snake’s actions, Shi Feng smiled .
To do nothing and give a casting class so much time…?
Was that really a good idea?
“Delaying for time?” Violet Cloud smiled faintly . She then increased the distance between them to almost 30 yards before she began chanting an incantation and waving her staff .
Compared to when she had cast Black Coffin, the channeling time for her current spell was much shorter . It was clear that she was not using an advanced spell as she had before .
Although Nimble Snake had revealed a throwing weapon, Violet Cloud had long since prepared for since prepared for it as she cast a Sacred Shield on herself, the spell capable of absorbing a significant amount of damage . In addition, Violet Cloud could physically dodge the attacks sent at her . After all, an Assassin was not a specialized ranged class, so Violet Cloud effortlessly defended against all attacks thrown at her .
As a result, Nimble Snake could only stare at Violet Cloud helplessly .
When the Cleric finished channeling her spell, she pointed her jade-like finger at Nimble Snake, who stood 30 yards away from her .
Suddenly, her opponent felt a powerful suction, pulling him towards Violet Cloud . Although he tried to resist, his efforts were futile as he moved closer to Violet Cloud . Moreover, the speed at which he approached her on increased as he grew nearer .
The moment Nimble Snake arrived before Violet Cloud, multiple damages of -500 appeared above his head, and his HP decreased rapidly .
Nimble Snake knew that he was finished . A distance of 30 yards was sufficient to deplete his remaining 2,100 HP .
“To hell with it!”
A hint of madness surfaced in Nimble Snake’s eyes . Now that the two were in such proximity, his daggers could reach Violet Cloud easily .
In a flash, Nimble Snake tightened his grip on his daggers and sent over half a dozen blades of silver light flying towards Violet Cloud .
In response, Violet Cloud simply flicked her finger .
All of a sudden, an incomparably strong pressure slammed down on Nimble Snake, holding him in place . Even the two daggers he brandished froze centimeters away from Violet Cloud .
In the next moment, the Assassin abruptly shot backward . Flying over 20 yards away, his body smashed into the wall of the arena .
Victor of the fifth match: Violet Cloud!
