Reincarnation Of The Strongest Sword God - Chapter 686
Chapter 686 - Tattered Old Treasure Chest
“They summoned a companion?” Shi Feng frowned as he saw the Lord ranked One-horn Lion King .
Monsters at the Top of the World were already much stronger than monsters one normally found in Star-Moon Kingdom . In addition to the environmental effects, dealing with these monsters would be quite challenging .
In the current God’s Domain, there had yet to be a single player capable of soloing the Level 45 Lord ranked One-horn Lion King .
Even if Shi Feng activated Twofold Berserk, he would not have a shred of hope of defeating the Level 45 Lord .
Aside from its 4,000,000 HP, Shi Feng also had no information on the Boss’s Skills . If it summoned another Lord, it would even be difficult to escape with his life .
The One-horn Lion King gave Shi Feng no opportunity to consider his situation . Lifting one of its massive paws, the Lion King suddenly transformed into an afterimage as it dashed towards Shi Feng like a gust of wind;its speed could match Shi Feng’s when he had Windwalk activated . It took only an instant for the massive Lion King to cross more than 20 yards, its paws sending dirt and snow into the air .
So much destructive power . Shi Feng immediately used Abyssal Bind, not daring to be careless .
After the Abyssal Blade had evolved, all of its Skills had reached Tier 1 . A Lord ranked monster was the equivalent of a Tier 2 class . With only a difference of one Tier, Abyssal Bind could exert a large fraction of its effects .
Xiu… Xiu… Xiu…
Twelve pitch-black chains appeared out of thin air, instantly binding the One-horn Lion King’s limbs, forcing the Lord to halt its charge . The Lion King bellowed in rage as it struggled against its bindings .
If Shi Feng had taken on this fight before the Abyssal Blade had evolved, the One-horn Lion King would have easily freed itself from Abyssal Bind . However, no matter how much strength it exerted, it could not move an inch . The most it managed was cause the chains to tremble slightly . Although the chains showed signs of breaking, it would still be some time before they would shatter .
“I can finally use Abyssal Bind again . ”
Shi Feng was quite satisfied with this outcome . The stronger the monster was, the weaker the effects of Abyssal Bind would become . Hence, he rarely used Abyssal Bind in his fights anymore . Now that the Skill had regained its usefulness, he would have another card against powerful monsters .
However, Shi Feng did not dare to tarry any longer as he activated Windwalk and fled .
Initially, Abyssal Bind could prevent a target from moving for four seconds . Against the One-horn Lion King, however, he’d be lucky if the Skill lasted two seconds . If utilized properly, he could put quite some distance between himself and the Lord .
Sure enough, two seconds after Shi Feng activated Abyssal Bind, the One-horn Lion King broke free from its restraints . Without hesitation, the Lion King chased after its prey .
Like so, one man and one beast ran through the snowy forest .
Although Shi Feng had attracted the attention of several monsters during his escape, he easily threw them off with his speed .
The only monster he could not shake off was the One-horn Lion King . Fortunately, the Lion King was not a speed-type Lord . After activating Windwalk, Shi Feng’s speed was roughly equal to the Lion King’s . Hence, the Lion King could not close the distance he had created during his two-second head start .
It won’t do to continue running like this . I haven’t seen any flying-type monsters so far, so it should be fine to use Wind Rider . While Shi Feng fled, fled, he searched for any movement in the air .
The ability to fly was a massive advantage against monsters . However, as players reached higher levels, many high-level maps would also contain flying-type monsters . If players encountered such a monster, escape would not be an option . They either defeated the flying monster chasing after them or said monster claimed their life . It would take a miracle to escape from a flying monster .
The Top of the World was known for being an area that only experts could challenge . One would find it difficult to survive even the low-level regions of this place .
Fortunately, Shi Feng also had the Seven Luminaries Ring . He considered himself to be someone who was quite good at escaping .
However, even Shi Feng did not dare to use his Skills at the Top of the World casually as a single misuse might get him killed .
After confirming that he saw no threat above him, Shi Feng activated Wind Rider and soared into the sky . Meanwhile, the One-horn Lion King could only roar in frustration as it watched its prey escape its clutches .
Although Shi Feng was only Level 32, the 220% increase in Movement Speed that Wind Rider provided made him faster than even a Level 45 Lord .
The location marked on the Elemental Core showed that Solomon’s Treasure was in Mount Sogar’s core area . Taking advantage of Wind Rider’s effects, Shi Feng flew towards the map’s core .
As Wind Rider only had a duration of 24 seconds, but a Cooldown of 2 minutes, Shi Feng was forced to stop every once in a while during his flight .
Shi Feng did not have the courage to brave the path on foot .
During his 24 seconds in the air, he had spotted at least three Lord ranked monsters . In addition, there were also plenty of Chieftains and Elites roaming around the snowy forest snowy forest . Even if he used an Isolation Scroll, he would not escape detection from so many powerful monsters .
After more than an hour of flying and hiding, Shi Feng arrived at the base of Mount Sogar’s core area .
Luckily, I can fly . Otherwise, I really might not have made it here alive . Shi Feng could not help but inwardly celebrate as he looked at the snowy forest at the foot of the mountain .
On his way here, aside from Lords, Shi Feng had even spotted a Level 50 Great Lord .
With Shi Feng’s current standards, without flight, he would never escape a Great Lord .
After arriving at the foot of the mountain, Shi Feng refused to use Wind Rider to fly up the mountain itself .
The top of the mountain was flying-type monsters’ territory . If he accidentally caught the attention of one of these monsters, he would be in trouble big-time .
Following which, Shi Feng used an Isolation Scroll and carefully proceeded along the stone steps up the mountain .
After arriving at Mount Sogar’s heart, the monsters he encountered were Level 50 at the very minimum . Shi Feng was merely Level 32 . With such a huge difference in levels, monsters could easily perceive his presence from a long distance away . Although he could reduce his presence with an Isolation Scroll, if he wanted to avoid detection, he would still have to maintain a distance of roughly 80 yards from these monsters . Fortunately, that distance was still well within his range of sight, so he could easily hide .
The path up Mount Sogar was very narrow and surrounded by steep cliffs . Not only was it very difficult to hike up the mountain, but there were also groups of Stone Apes patrolling the path . Unfortunately, there was only a single path up the mountain .
[Stone Ape] (Elemental Being, Elite Rank)

By itself, the Stone Ape was no threat to Shi Feng . In fact, he could easily handle three or four of these Elite Stone Apes simultaneously . However, when a Stone Ape Guard accompanied the group, the situation was largely different .
[Stone Ape Guard] (Elemental Being, Chieftain Rank)
On his way up the mountain, in order to avoid the patrolling Stone Apes, Shi Feng hurriedly hid inside a small cave on the steep hillside .
“Oh? A Secret-Silver Treasure Chest!” A light shone in Shi Feng’s eyes .
The small cave was only the size of a room . Meanwhile, a tattered Treasure Chest sat in the deepest part of the cave, giving off a faint silver glow from on top of a thorn- and moss-covered stone platform .
In God’s Domain, even Common Treasure Chests were a rare sight, not to mention Secret-Silver ranked ones .
The loot one could obtain from a Secret-Silver Treasure Chest was much better than even the loot from a Lord ranked Boss .
He was truly lucky to stumble upon one by accident shortly after arriving at Mount Sogar .
However, as a precautionary measure, Shi Feng activated Omniscient Eyes to search for traps inside the cave .
In the past, countless players had lost their lives by triggering a trap due to their momentary excitement of discovering a Treasure Chest .
Under the probing of Omniscient Eyes, Shi Feng noticed a magical fluctuation from beside the stone platform . Taking a closer look, he discovered a magic array carved into the cave wall . Only, the thorns and moss covering the wall had obscured the magic array . Fortunately, under the perception of Omniscient Eyes, these simple obstructions were no different than transparent glass .
“Sure enough, there’s a magical trap . ” Shi Feng laughed as he activated Phantom Kill .
He then had his doppelganger stand at the cave’s entrance while he ran towards the Treasure Chest .
