The Great Thief - Chapter 571
Its sharp claws grabbed Lu Li’s shoulder and pulled down .
Lu Li lost a large chunk of HP, but he refused to admit defeat . He stabbed his dagger deep into the Abyss Undead Bug’s eye and twisted it . This attack wasn’t enough to blind the target, but it did hit its weak point .
The Abyss Undead Bug let out a cry as it took double damage and lost a significant amount of HP .
Neither man nor beast had the advantage at this point .
The Undead Bug wasn’t easy to fight . It had a lot of combat experience and wasn’t like the monsters that took turns with the player to attack .
After taking a heavy hit from Lu Li, it fell back and kept some distance between them to prepare itself .
Lu Li already knew that it was going to use its poison, but he didn’t rush forwards . Instead, when he saw the attack coming, he quickly drank an Advanced Antidote .
The attack dealt more than 400 damage, but the deadly poison did not trigger .
In fact, his rebirth had completely changed things for him . The knowledge alone allowed him to perform much better than he did in his previous life .
In his last life, he had died to this monster at least a dozen times, but now, he wouldn’t make the same mistake .
Although Lu Li’s HP and Attack wasn’t as much as the Abyss Undead Bug’s, he had more skills, more potions and more intelligence .
After a little over a minute, the Undead Bug exploded into pool of blood .
Lu Li had already rolled away before this happened, so the poisonous explosion didn’t hurt him .
A lot of players were very wary while they were fighting the Abyss Undead Bug and knew when it was dead because they would receive the EXP .
However, the Undead Bug relied on this and would often kill the player after it had died .
The Undead Bugs were harder to kill and only gave a little more EXP than the lava monster . There was almost no difference in terms of EXP bar growth .
However, the Undead Bug’s drops were free for him to pick up .
When Lu Li fought what he suspected was a Boss, he reasoned that it must have dropped some good items . Unfortunately, they had all fallen into the lava and he had no way of getting to them .
Lu Li bent over to pick up what was left of the Abyss Undead Bug .
He picked up an Undead Bug Carapace, which was a Rare Material that was good for making leather armor . Even if a Mold didn’t specifically ask for it, it could still be added .
Adding the Undead Bug Carapace would provide some damage reduction properties .
This kind of Rare Material wasn’t necessarily needed for any equipment, but adding it would yield some unexpected benefits . Some players thought that this was an exotic kind of material because they were not necessarily dropped by a Boss, but by a specific type of monster .
The Undead Bug had dropped nothing other than the Undead Bug Carapace .
After Lu Li had killed a dozen Undead Bugs and acquired five Undead Undead Bug Carapaces, he decided to leave . He didn’t have much time and was bound to be kicked out when he logged off . When he came back online, he might not still be here .
Moreover, there was a display over the secret area that said 1/2, which probably meant that Lu Li only had one more chance to explore afterwards .
He planned to explore as much as he could at this time, but next time, he could be more prepared . The Undead Bug Carapace was good, but five of them was only enough for Lu Li to use .
In general, the exit point would be in the center of the secret area .
Lu Li worked out where he needed to go based on what he had explored so far and headed there .
He wanted to find out what the most powerful presence was in the area . As such, his movements were bold and unrestrained;he didn’t even stop when he saw monsters .
His high movement speed afforded him the luxury of being able to do this .
As long as it was not more than 10 levels ahead of him and it wasn’t a Boss, Lu Li was confident that he could take it out quickly .
Lu Li encountered more than one monster during his travel . There was a one-footed ostrich creature that had an amazing jumping ability, but it was very silly . It jumped over Lu Li and landed face first into the dirt before taking a long time to pull its head out .
The lava monster was the most common thing here and each of them of them was a Strengthening Stone in Lu Li’s eyes . It would be a waste not to take them .
There was also a massive worm that could shoot silk . It almost captured Lu Li, but he managed to use his Shoes’ Direct Thrust to get far away from the attack .
After crossing several of these strange areas, Lu Li arrived at his destination an hour before the day’s playtime finished .
At least, this was where he thought the center of the secret area was .
There was a big tree here . This was the first time that Lu Li had seen a big tree like this in the secret area . It was also probably because of the tree, but visibility was much better here .
The tree was so big that Lu Li couldn’t really find the words to describe it .
If he had to compare it with something, he could only think of the world’s biggest tree – Teldrassil . One could only imagine what it would have looked like when it was alive .
Yes, this tree was already dead .
From afar, the silence of this tree could be felt . Although the leaves had lost all their moisture, they stubbornly refused to fall . Like the demons who had died in this abyss, this tree hadn’t rotted .
Lu Li was now even more convinced that this was a destroyed small world .
He escaped into the shadows and stayed near them cautiously, inching forwards to see what else was left around this tree .
Lu Li felt like the difficulty of this secret area probably wasn’t as high wasn’t as high as he had initially thought . After all, the world had been destroyed, so the strong creatures that hadn’t died would have slowly lost their strength as there were no resources .
Although Dawn was a game made for playability, any designer would hardly refuse the temptation of creating an entire world .
A world could be called a world because it had its own rules .
After getting closer, Lu Li found that there was actually a creature under the tree .
It actually was the Burning Legion!
Lu Li almost peed himself . He immediately wanted to slap himself in the face . How was the Burning Legion not difficult? Was he a Titan God?
The Burning Legion was one of Dawn’s major villains in the lore . Sargeras was originally the most powerful warrior of the Titans, but he lost himself in the conquest . He became convinced that everything he had done was wrong and set out the fix it . He also wanted to destroy the order that was established by the Titan God .
As such, he released these mighty creatures in captivity, all of whom groveled under his feet .
That was the Burning Legion, Azeroth’s most deadly enemy . Characters like Tyrande and Medivh racked their brains and were barely able to defend themselves from what was considered the root of all evil .
The Doomguard and Hellhounds were the Burning Legion’s strongest units and they were loyal to an even more powerful Demon .
Lu Li was currently only level 38;he was in no way close to being able to fight the Burning Legion .
