Reincarnation Of The Strongest Sword God - Chapter 668
Chapter 668 - Challenge
Other than those extraordinarily rare, God-ranked experts, there had been countless experts in God’s Domain . There had even been many Tier 5 experts .
In the past, the top twelve Tier 5 players of every class had been known as the Twelve Sacred Experts . Tier 5 experts were considered treasures to any Guild . They were geniuses that could not be ignored . Any Guild that managed to nurture a Tier 5 expert would celebrate for days .
Meanwhile, the Twelve Sacred Experts were a group of players standing at the very peak of Tier 5 classes . They had been geniuses among geniuses .
Right now, the Guardian Knight standing beside Flame Blood had been one of the famous Twelve Sacred Knights, Lightning Blade . Not only was his bladework astonishingly fast, but he was also famous for having an impenetrable defense . In the past, even the Twelve Sacred Assassins had been unable to break through his defense . Lightning Blade had ranked eighth among the Twelve Sacred Knights . However, the most frightening aspect about him was the fact that he had been an independent player .
Had Lightning Blade joined a first-rate Guild early on in the past, he might have had the chance to join the Tier 6 God-ranked players .
Shi Feng never imagined that Heaven’s Burial could actually rope in such a peerless expert . He was slightly surprised .
There was no doubting the importance of an MT to a team .
Heaven’s Burial had already recruited many experts of the virtual gaming world . Now, they had even managed to recruit such a powerful MT . Lightning Blade’s entry into the Guild instantly elevated the strength of Heaven’s Burial’s main force by several levels .
“You’re the famous One-hit Asura, Black Flame?” Lightning Blade shifted his gaze to Shi Feng . Grinning, he said, “I heard that you were Star-Moon Kingdom’s number one expert . I have always enjoyed challenging experts . Why don’t we have a duel? I want to see whether the rumored One-hit Asura is actually as godly as they say, being able to send anyone to the afterlife with just one hit . Or maybe everything was just a big lie . ”
The moment Lightning Blade finished his words, the surrounding temperature dropped by several degrees . At this moment, every member of Zero Wing radiated an intense killing intent .
Shi Feng was their Guild Leader . How dare anyone just walk up to him and issue a challenge, not to mention doing so with such a disrespectful tone? This was an insult to Zero Wing itself .
However, as the leader of Heaven’s Burial’s team, rather than stopping Lightning Blade, Flame Blood simply stood by a side, smiling .
Although it was not wise to provoke Zero Wing, Heaven’s Burial’s momentum was in full swing . It was also a good thing to have Lightning Blade test the depths of Shi Feng’s strength . Not only would this improve the Guild’s reputation, but it would also serve as a foundation to deal with Shi Feng in the future . Moreover, in the event that Lightning Blade managed to defeat Shi Feng, Heaven’s Burial’s fame would soar .
Standing by the side, War Wolf played the role of an observer in this fight .
If Shi Feng refusedLightning Blade’s challenge, Heaven’s Burial would definitely spread the news of this matter, claiming that Shi Feng was afraid to accept the challenge . Shi Feng’s position as the number one expert of Star-Moon Kingdom would definitely be at risk . However, if he accepted the challenge, he would also risk revealing his strength to his enemies . If this happened, he would not have as many hidden advantages in future battles .
Violet Cloud suddenly stepped forward and said, “Don’t you think it’s a little too early for you to challenge challenge our Guild Leader? However, I’ll be your opponent . ”
“You? A Cleric?” Lightning Blade glanced at the young and slender Violet Cloud . With disdain, he said, “I have no interest in unripened little girls like you . Black Flame, you can’t possibly send a little girl into battle just because you’re afraid of facing me, right?”
“Little girl?” Violet Cloud remained unperturbed by the Guardian Knight’s insult . Smiling calmly, she said, “If you can’t even defeat a little girl like me, what qualifications do you have to face our Guild Leader?”
“Then, are you saying that, as long as I beat you, your Guild Leader will fight me?” Lightning Blade countered with a question of his own .
“I guarantee it . ” Shi Feng nodded .
“Okay, I look forward to experiencing Guild Leader Black Flame’s brilliant moves,” Lightning Blade laughed . He then shifted his gaze towards Violet Cloud .
Following which, both teams distanced themselves from each other, creating a space for the fighters .
“Lightning, be careful of that girl . She’s not as simple as she looks . She’s an expert who has reached the later stage of the seventh floor . She should be just as strong, if not stronger, than Ghost Shadow,” Flame Blood warned the MT .
Lightning Blade was an expert that Heaven’s Burial had spared no expense to recruit .
The Guardian Knight’s strength spoke for itself . Even Ghost Shadow had failed to damage him as Lightning Blade had blocked every one of the Assassin’s attacks . With his exceedingly high HP and lightning-quick attacks, Lightning Blade eventually wore Ghost Shadow down, claiming his life . One could say that Lightning Blade had a massive advantage in PvP battles .
Against a low damage Cleric, it would be child’s play for Lightning Blade to secure a victory . However, a little caution never hurt anybody .
“Relax . I’ve known about this for a while . . I’m just trying to agitate Black Flame so that he will agree to a Duel . ” Lightning Blade no longer had a prideful and arrogant air around himself . On the contrary, he remained calm and attached great importance to this Duel .
Meanwhile, on the other side, Shi Feng secretly passed a bottle of Hundred Berry Wine to Violet Cloud, saying softly, “Drink this before you fight him . Do not let him within ten yards of you . ”
Though Shi Feng was unsure of Lightning Blade’s current strength, he did know one of his weaknesses . While knowing this weakness would do little good to ordinary experts, to Violet Cloud, however, it would help her tremendously in the upcoming battle .
“Guild Leader, is Lightning Blade so strong that Violet Cloud needs to drink Hundred Berry Wine?” Fire Dance was confused by Shi Feng’s actions .
In Zero Wing, when speaking about combat techniques, Violet Cloud was even superior to her . Meanwhile, in terms of strength, she was only slightly superior to Violet Cloud due to the advantage of her class and weapons .
They both wore the best available equipment in all of God’s Domain . With their current standards, there were very few people who could defeat them in Star-Moon Kingdom . Even against an expert like War Wolf, Fire Dance was confident that both she and Violet Cloud had more than a 60% chance of defeating him .
“If we’re going to win, we have to win brilliantly,” Shi Feng laughed . He did not think that the current Violet Cloud was inferior to Lightning Blade . The girl was even an Astromancer, a hidden class .
Upon hearing Shi Feng’s words, everyone could not help but roll their eyes at their Guild Leader .
This was simply extravagant! Normally, they had to fight tooth for nail against each other to obtain a single bottle, exhausting themselves .
Yet, now, Shi Feng let a bottle go to bottle go to waste just for a flashy win . If they had known something like this would happen, they would have volunteered .
That was the Hundred Berry Wine!
Drinking just one bottle could allow one to become a top-tier expert . Two bottles could push one to the apex of Star-Moon Kingdom .
Without hesitation, Violet Cloud emptied the bottle of Hundred Berry Wine, a faint blush appearing on her white, delicate cheeks . Tasting her lips, it was obvious she still could not get enough of the beverage . She was adorable .
The members of Heaven’s Burial were surprised when they saw Zero Wing’s members watch Violet Cloud enviously .
What was going on with Zero Wing’s members?
Was participating in the Duel really something to be jealous of?
“This will be interesting . That young lady easily toyed with Nimble Snake in the past . ” War Wolf wore a playful smile . He then shifted his gaze to Lightning Blade, a cunning spark flashing in his eyes . “This is a good chance to see just how powerful that Guardian Knight is . I actually feel a significant pressure from him . ”
Standing by a side, Nimble Snake nodded in agreement with War Wolf’s words . Violet Cloud’s combat techniques were indeed very powerful . She had actually reached the seventh floor of the Trial Tower . However, actual combat and challenging the Trial Tower were two entirely different things . Previously, he had lost to Violet Cloud due to the latter having the advantage in Tiers . Otherwise, the outcome would not have necessarily ended in Violet Cloud’s favor . His strength had improved significantly since then . If they faced each other again, he would definitely win against Violet Cloud .
Once both combatants were ready, Lightning Blade and Violet Cloud initiated the Duel .
System Countdown: 5 seconds .
System Countdown: 4 seconds .
System: Duel, start!
