Reincarnation Of The Strongest Sword God - Chapter 94-95
Chapter 94 - Titan's Heart
Although Shi Feng was shocked, his feet never stopped moving. His figure turned into an after image as he rushed towards the Titan's Heart, located at the center of the barrier. He then used Observing Eyes on the Dark Clown.
"Unknown?" Shi Feng was shocked.Aside from the information showing that the figure was indeed a Dark Clown, there was nothing else displayed. All of it was just question marks.There were only two possibilities for such a situation to occur. The first was that the Dark Clown was equipping an advanced camouflage item. The other was that its strength was simply too overwhelming, preventing the basic Observing Eyes from identifying it.It was very clearly the latter situation taking place in this case.According to Shi Feng's memories, Dark Clowns were a group of mysterious lifeforms. They always wore clown clothing with many bells as decorations. They looked human, but were not human. However, neither were they living spirits. Each one of them was extremely powerful. They could simply appear at any location, and they could come and go without leaving behind a single trace. Even if it was the Palace of Star-Moon Kingdom, they could still easily enter it.However, this was but a small matter. Shi Feng had previously seen a Tier 3 Great Druid NPC die at the hands of the Dark Clowns. Their methods of attacking were simply unforgettable. The attacks were impossible to avoid."Despicable human, you actually dare barge into this place?!" The Dark Clown had its face wrapped in a black cloth, revealing only its two glowing red eyes. Although its enraged expression could not be seen, its tone was extremely agitated.Streak after streak of green colored energy was currently being absorbed by the Dark Clown. Clearly it was a crucial moment, so it was unable to take action against Shi Feng.
This situation gave Shi Feng a chance to prevent this assimilation ceremony, and deal heavy damage to the Dark Clown. Otherwise, when this critical period passed, the Dark Clown, which was capable of killing even a Tier 3 Great Druid, would instantly kill Shi Feng with just a wave of its hand."Cyber, get rid of him for me!" the Dark Clown urged.
Shi Feng revealed a faint smile. Seeing the Dark Clown's anxious appearance, Shi Feng tried even harder to deal some damage against it. As for the Hellhound behind him, it was still restricted by chains. It was too late, even if it tried to rush over to Shi Feng.
Shi Feng used all of his strength. With the flick of his wrist, a large explosion sounded out. The Abyssal Blade turned into a streak of black light, piercing directly towards the Magic Circle that was absorbing energy from the Titan's Heart.
Dang!The Magic Weapon Abyssal Blade, which had been successful in every previous endeavor, was blocked outside of the Magic Array. It created brilliant white sparks as it collided with the Magic Array, dealing no damage at all to the Absorption Magic Array."Pitiful human. Did you think a weak little Swordsman like you could destroy my Magic Array? Just give up and become Cyber's food! Who knows, I might even let your soul go. Otherwise, prepare for endless pain after you die!" the Dark Clown threatened.At this moment, the Hellhound rushed over."You're just a clown, yet you dare spout nonsense! Did you think I have no ways to deal with you?" Shi Feng sneered. He took out a dark, gray-colored Magic Scroll from his bag."No!""You're literally insane! Do you know what you are trying to do!?"
The Dark Clown abruptly yelled out in shock after seeing this piece of dark, gray-colored Magic Scroll."It seems you know your stuff. At worst, we'll both die together." Shi Feng did not wish to use this item either, however, he was going to die anyway, so why should he still care? He then unfolded the Magic Scroll, and his mouth started chanting the activation incantation.
This was one of the only three Tier 2 Magic Scrolls that Shi Feng possessed: Obliterating Torrent. It possessed the ability to devour all magic elements, turning them into nothingness. This Magic Scroll belonged to the peak of Tier 2 Magic Scrolls.Suddenly, the magic elements in the center of the barrier surged, becoming incomparably violent, following which, it started collapsing without any signs of stopping.The Absorption Magic Array was made up of magic elements, so, naturally, it could not escape its fate as it collapsed and exploded.
The entire Magic Array was similar to frying beans, producing crackling sounds. The Magic Array loudly exploded, dispersing streak after streak of dazzling shockwaves.Shi Feng immediately activated Defensive Blade, becoming immune to the damage of six ranged attacks. He then rushed towards the Titan's Heart.
However, it was not easy to collect the Titan's Heart. Shi Feng either had to deplete all the energy the Titan's Heart possessed, or he would need to have the key to remove the barrier. Fortunately, Shi Feng had the key. In the midst of the explosions, Shi Feng unlocked the barrier protecting the Titan's Heart, then stored it in his bag.The shockwaves created by the Obliterating Torrent sent the Hellhound flying away, violently slamming it into a wall. The wall then split apart like a spiderweb. Following which, the Hellhound heavily landed on the ground, and didn't stand back up.
However, the shockwaves of the explosion did no harm to the Dark Clown, as if they had just passed through its body. The Dark Clown's body seemed as though it did not exist in this plane of existence. However, the backlash from the magic ceremony failing had caused great damage to it. The Dark Clown silently glared at Shi Feng, faintly having the intention to take action.
"Humph! Come if you have the ability!" Shi Feng smiled in disdain as he took out another deep-blue colored Tier 2 Magic Scroll.Shi Feng had already obtained the Titan's Heart. Even if he died, a Quest Item could not be dropped. The Dark Clown was already extremely weakened as well, and at most, it would only be slightly stronger than him. Shi Feng still had two pieces of Tier 2 Magic Scrolls. At worst, he would perish together with the Dark Clown.He could still revive after dying, but if the Dark Clown died, then it would truly be dead.
Let's see who's afraid of who!
"Despicable human, I'll let you off this time! We will meet again sooner or later. It will be your death when that time comes!" The Dark Clown gave up the notion of getting rid of Shi Feng after seeing the Magic Scroll. It only left behind a ruthless remark as it disappeared from the control room, together with the Hellhound.
Shi Feng silently waited for a moment. After confirming no movements from his surroundings, he let loose a breath of relief. However, he did not store away the Tier 2 Magic Scroll.
He truly did not wish to use the Tier 2 Magic Scroll and perish together with the Dark Clown. However, based on the Dark Clown's intelligence, it too would make the right choice.
Shi Feng had already obtained the Titan's Heart. He took out a Return Scroll and started chanting.
Thirty seconds later Shi Feng turned into a white glow, disappearing from the control room as well.
After Shi Feng disappeared, the Dark Clown appeared once more. The red glow let out from its eyes became even more brilliant now. It clearly did not expect Shi Feng to be so cautious. From beginning to end, Shi Feng had never put away the Tier 2 Magic Scroll. Otherwise, it would have had a chance to kill Shi Feng.
"Wretched human! The method I've spent more than ten years researching to absorb the energy from the Titan's Heart…! When I recover, I will definitely make you wish for death!" the Dark Clown bellowed. It abruptly waved its hand, and tens of flying blades destroyed the pedestal, which lost the protection of the barrier.
On the other side, Shi Feng had already returned to Red Leaf Town.Currently, the amount of players in Red Leaf Town grew even greater. The streets were filled with players selling Level 0 to Level 2 Common Equipment and basic skill books.Shi Feng took a look at his bag. It had been some time since Gold Coins stopped entering his account. He thus decided to go sell some items before going to hand in his Quest.The previous Forging Designs were already sold out. Shi Feng took out another twenty pieces of Glimmer Chestplate Forging Designs and placed them at the Auction House to be sold in batches.At this time, a communication request came from Gentle Snow."Three hours from now, meet up in front of Dark Moon Graveyard's entrance. Get your team prepared for it and bring the necessary potions. Our Ouroboros must definitely snatch the First Clear of this Dungeon this time, so we'll be looking forward to your performance," Gentle Snow's tone was very indifferent, as if she was giving out a command. It was completely different from their meeting just now."Will do. I'll definitely arrive three hours from now." However, Shi Feng did not particularly mind it, as that was the Snow Goddess's regular attitude. He estimated the time, thinking that he should be able to make it.Neither of them traded unnecessary words, immediately disconnecting the call.After that, Shi Feng purchased Card Sets and Hard Stones at the Auction House. He also bought some materials required to make Bronze Equipment and Mysterious-Iron Equipment. After storing the materials inside the bank, Shi Feng went on to buy some Magic Scrolls and necessary potions. He then ran towards the White Sand Ruins to turn in his Quest.
Chapter 95 - Abyssal Devour
"Blackie, how are things at your place at the moment? What level are you guys at right now?" Shi Feng asked.
"Leveling up in this hidden area is just too awesome! There is still no one coming over here to steal monsters, and everyone is at Level 5 right now. Moreover, we obtained a lot of Wolf Meat and Wolf Skin, and our bags have long since been filled to the brim. Right now, we're preparing to return to town and clear out our bags a bit," Blackie excitedly said. In this short period of time, they had obtained four pieces of Level 5 Bronze Equipment from grinding on Forest Wolf Dens. Amongst them, there was a Level 5 Bronze Staff that allowed Blackie's damage to increase by a lot.
"Full already? You guys sure are efficient." Shi Feng was slightly shocked. A stack of Wolf Meat had 100 pieces in it. Previously, Blackie and the others had purchased plenty of Big Bags. Shi Feng never thought that they would be filled so quickly. How many Wolf Meat was this? If all of them were to be given to Violet Cloud to be made into advanced cookings, then it would become a huge profit.
"That's right, you guys pass all of your Wolf Meat to a female Cleric called Violet Cloud. Just give out my name when you meet her. Afterward, you guys rest up a little and buy some HP and MP recovery potions, then wait for me at the Trade Area."
"Brother Feng, are we going to go Dungeon-diving with the Snow Goddess?" Blackie excitedly asked, after recalling some things.
"En, so properly rest up. You'll have to tense up your nerves after entering the Dungeon." Shi Feng nodded his head, disconnecting the call.On the other hand, Blackie had nearly jumped up in excitement. Originally, he had thought Shi Feng would not be bringing them along to the Dungeon. After all, their techniques were not that great. They would only be making fools of themselves if they were to go. However, since Shi Feng did not forsake them, what else did they have to say?Anticipation grew within Blackie. He was fortunate enough to dive a Dungeon together with the Snow Goddess. So what if he would shame himself? It would still be an honor when mentioned to others. Regardless of what others may say, they would be players who had gone Dungeon-diving with the Snow Goddess in the same party.
White Sand Ruins, Stonehammer Town.
When the Town Mayor Blackbeard saw Shi Feng entering, he went forward and greeted Shi Feng in a very welcoming manner.
"Brother Ye Feng, you've come. The Fruit Juice you sold to me the last time was just too good! It captivated everyone in our little town. Now, we can't sleep properly if we don't drink a cup before bed every day," Blackbeard joked.
"Lord Mayor Blackbeard, is this the Titan's Heart that you wanted?" Shi Feng smiled, taking out the Titan's Heart as he asked.
When Blackbeard saw the gray-colored, metallic sphere, his mouth suddenly opened wide in shock.
This shape, this color, this texture… It was exactly the same as the Titan's Heart mentioned in the legends.
"Correct, this is the Titan's Heart. It is exactly the same as the one recorded in the ancient records. I never thought that I would be able to personally see it in my lifetime. Brother Ye Feng, I truly did not think that you were such a powerful Adventurer. For bringing back our Blacksteel Dwarves' glory, I represent all Blacksteel Dwarves in thanking you sincerely," Blackbeard excitedly received the Titan's Heart, continuously thanking Shi Feng.
System: Unique Quest "Steel Fortress Barrutia" completed. Rewarding 1 Blacksteel Insignia. Obtained Blackbeard's Recommendation Letter. Obtained Advanced Book of Magic. Rewarding 10,000 EXP. Reputation at Blacksteel Town has reached Worship.
The large amount of rewards dazzled Shi Feng's eyes. His level had also risen to 73% of Level 6. Such a leveling speed had even exceeded that of those leveling madmen.
Shi Feng did not care much about the amount of EXP. Instead, the other items were the most important ones.
The rewards this time far exceeded Shi Feng's expectations. A Titan's Heart that possessed no energy in it could transform a third-rate Guild into a second-rate Guild. However, right now the Titan's Heart in Shi Feng's hands still possessed a quarter of its energy. Shi Feng never imagined the rewards to be so good.In his previous life, the player that completed this Unique Quest did not obtain such a bountiful reward. The player had only obtained a Recommendation Letter, an Intermediate Book of Magic, and reputation reaching the level of Worship. There was absolutely no Blacksteel's Insignia.
[Blacksteel Insignia] (Fine-Gold rank)
User restriction: Ye Feng
The[e] Blacksteel Insignia is the highest medal of honor amongst the Blacksteel Dwarves. After equipping it:
Forging success rate increased by 5%.
Proficiency has a 10% chance to increase by 1 extra point.
When forging, there is a 1% chance to increase the forged item's Attributes.
Shi Feng was shocked after looking at the introduction. This Blacksteel Insignia was literally a godly tool for forging. It was several degrees stronger than the Forging Talent. It was especially true with the 1% chance for an Attribute increase. That meant that, out of a hundred items forged, there would be one piece that would have its Attributes increased. If Shi Feng forged items everyday without stop, he would have no problem making three to four hundred pieces of equipment. In turn, he would have three to four pieces of equipment with their Attributes raised.
The thing players compared most when playing games was the quality of their equipment. Even if the Attributes on a piece of equipment was only slightly higher, when the Attributes of all the other pieces of equipment were accumulated together, the total amount would allow a player to exceed the others by quite a lot. Regardless of whether it was PK or Dungeon-diving, the player would have a great advantage in both situations.
Although Shi Feng did not know how much of an equipment's Attributes would be increased, even an increase of a single point would cause an equipment's price to increase by multiple percentages. If it was a big increase, then the price would increase by several folds;the price of a single piece of equipment could even rival the price of ten or more pieces.The Blacksteel Insignia was an unexpected profit. Shi Feng's main purpose for doing this Quest was to obtain the Book of Magic and Recommendation Letter, as both of these items were capable of allowing a Guild to rise up. It was especially true for the Book of Magic. Moreover, the one Shi Feng obtained was even an Advanced Book of Magic.
Aside from forging equipment, Shi Feng could also forge other items, such as Armor Kits, Gemstone Buckles, Alchemy Wands, and much more. Amongst them, Armor Kits were the most popular and also had the largest demand.Generally, Armor Kits were capable of increasing either a Chestplate's Defense or Attributes. These all depended on the Armor Kit's quality and level. Meanwhile, the Book of Magic Shi Feng obtained from Blackbeard was for making the strengthened version of the Armor Kit: the Magic Armor Kit. The Book of Magic was a unique item, and there was only one of it in the entire God's Domain.
In Shi Feng's previous life, it was exactly this item that had allowed a Guild to earn a large sum of money, turning it from a third-rate Guild into a second-rate Guild.As for Blackbeard's Recommendation Letter, it would only be useful in White River City, so Shi Feng was still unable to use it right now.however, now that Shi Feng's Reputation in Stonehammer Town had reached the level of Worship, he could purchase a few Bronze Equipment, and even Mysterious-Iron Equipment, that would bind to the player's character upon purchase. Moreover, the prices of these equipment items were very cheap, to the degree that even an average player at Level 10 could afford them. Stonehammer Town could be called the best location for players to obtain Mysterious-Iron Equipment. Hence, many players loved coming to this place to grind for Reputation. After their Reputation reached Worship, they would be able to gear themselves fully with Level 10 Mysterious-Iron Equipment.Unfortunately, it was not easy to grind for Reputation. It was almost impossible for anybody to fully equip themselves with Level 10 Mysterious-Iron Reputation Equipment.Moreover, a complete set of Mysterious-Iron Reputation Equipment was still somewhat weaker than the Bronze ranked Silvermoon Set Equipment. So, top-tier players all felt that it was below their dignity to equip it.
Although Shi Feng would not be equipping these items, he still had other uses for them. For example, using them to level up the Abyssal Blade. The Abyssal Blade needed to devour Weapons in order to level up. According to his understanding, the better the quality of the Weapon devoured, the higher the increase in Attributes of the Abyssal Blade. The Abyssal Blade was like a cultivating weapon, hence the reason it was so much more powerful than those Epic ranked Weapons. They were even capable of rivaling Legendary Weapons.
If Shi Feng nurtured it properly, the Abyssal Blade's Attributes could definitely surpass a Legendary Weapon. Sadly, too many items were required to carry out such a feat. Even if it was the Guild Leader of a second-rate Guild, they would not be able to support such a heavy cost. There was also the risk of facing a huge backlash. It was why many players both loved and hated Magic Weapons.In consideration for the Abyssal Blade's Attributes, instead of feeding it the original one piece of Level 5 Mysterious-Iron Weapon, and ten pieces of Level 5 Bronze Weapon, Shi Feng decided to buy eleven pieces of Level 5 Mysterious-Iron Weapon from the Weapon Shop. It was unknown how much of an increase in Attributes such an action would yield.
Following which, Shi Feng called out the leveling interface for the Abyssal Blade. He then fed all these Weapons to the Abyssal Blade.
