Chapter 520: The Shop Owner Is Cheating?
Translator: Noodletown Translations Editor: Noodletown Translations
“The King’s Avatar?! What’s that?” Obviously, many cultivators and warriors from Yuanyang City and Half City hadn’t heard of it before.
Even Gu Tingyun, this old man, was curious. “Do we have such a movie or game in the shop?”
“What’s Vanishing Step?!” Many people looked baffled.
In the game, the players at levels lower than 20 couldn’t use the high-level combat techniques that they had learned in the real world. On one hand, their bodies in the game were not familiar with those combat techniques and the spiritual spells yet. Even if they use them, the power of these techniques would be weak. On the other hand, the essence and magic used in the games were slightly different from the warrior qi and spiritual essence in the real world, and the players had to spend lots of time to study them before using them in the games.
“The King’s Avatar is a story about games; the shop owner told us the story before,” Xu Zixin explained.
“What’s Vanishing Step?! It must be an insignificant low-level combat technique!” Sia said contemptuously.
“A story about games?!” The girls stood together, and Yue Bai asked Xu Zixin curiously, “Do we have such a game in the shop?”
Xu Zixin pointed at Mr. Fang and whispered. “Do you want me to tell you the story?”
“What story?!” With ears perked up, Sia listened carefully.
Then, she heard, “I’ll tell you the story after Mr. Fang clears the stage.”
“…” Sia’s face twitched. Why don’t you tell it now!
She had been waiting to listen.
In fact, Nalan Mingxue noticed that Fang Qi had used more than just Vanishing Step.
It suddenly dawned on her that Fang Qi had used all kinds of small skills in his previous battles with monsters.
They were not combat techniques and didn’t consume lots of physical strength; they could be used after getting smooth with some practice.
For example, Fang Qi had switched between the great sword and lightsabre and used ordinary sword techniques and Secret Sword Art alternatively. Secret Sword Art consumed energy, and it used a lot of energy maintaining such a horrifying fast speed.
However, Nalan Mingxue sensed that it didn’t consume lots of Fang Qi’s essence, A.K.A MP, since his essence had remained at a high level.
For another example, Fang Qi had used Secret Sword Art in the middle of the Drive Slash, so he could attack multiple targets at a faster speed.
It must be noted that the sliding steps of Drive Slash were extremely fast. At this great speed, how could Fang Qi use the Secret Sword Art, an extremely complicated and fast sword technique, together with Drive Slash?!
In the King’s Avatar, the main character used this technique to keep a small master in the air.
They were surprised that Fang Qi was able to use this technique in this game!
The cultivators of the Ultimate West Realm were at a loss for words. As wounds accumulated on the zombie king, it couldn’t heal itself under such fast sword strikes solely using its healing ability; the zombie king was going to die soon!
Many people stared at Fang Qi’s screen with widened eyes. “Is he going to pass for real?!”
“So powerful!” Tang Yu yelled, “The zombie king doesn’t have a chance to fight back!”
When they fought the zombie king it was extremely difficult. However, Fang Qi made the process look so simple and smooth. They felt as if Fang Qi were playing a different game!
“Will he pass just like this?!” someone asked weakly.
“Impossible,” Sia snorted and said, “This zombie king will unleash its power and knock everyone around it away if it’s under siege for a long time.”
The moment she said it, sure enough, a tremendous force erupted from the zombie king.
Like a storm, the force instantly spread out in all directions!
“See?” Sia said smugly.
Before she could finish, Fang Qi slashed out his great sword with vicious force.
The storm hit him, but Fang Qi was as steady as a giant boulder.
Instead, he even tossed up the zombie king again!
In the original version of Dungeon Fighter Online, if the players reacted fast enough, they could block the shock wave of the bosses with Super Armor. Even though Fang Qi didn’t have the fancy special effect where light radiated out of his body, Fang Qi remained as steady as a mountain.
“How did he manage it?!”
“Did he block it by using Super Armor?!” Some sharp-eyed players saw the trick.
“He’s going to pass!”
Under Fang Qi’s wild attacks, the HP of the boss was declining at a fast speed!
“His combo is more than 100 attacks!”
Looking at the combo number shown on the screen, they yelled, “He’s not a human!”
With a shrill scream, the zombie king was already dead when it fell from the sky.
Many people couldn’t believe their eyes. “How can it be so easy?!”
“No…!” Luo Piaoling’s face turned grim.
“What’s wrong?” Sia asked curiously.
“Didn’t you notice that?” Luo Piaoling said, “It has been a long time, and the chilly energy in his body should have erupted; but… he showed no sign of it!”
“Why is that?!” Sia was astonished. She remembered that when she passed the Master Difficulty Level in a team, the chilly energy in her body had erupted at regular intervals, interrupting several of her combos.
However, this chilly energy hadn’t affected Fang Qi at all?!
How could it be?!
“Cheated! He must have cheated!” As an ignorant viewer, Sia thought that Mr. Fang must have cheated in the game.
As an ignorant viewer, Luo Piaoling also felt incredulous. While looking at Mr. Fang’s default slayer outfit and then at his own…
Could it be that this outfit adds armor to the players?!
It was unbelievable!
“Cheated?” Many people froze at their protest.
“How come the shop owner wasn’t attacked by the zombie king’s freezing energy?!”
It seemed like the boss was fond of Fang Qi. While other players battled the boss, they all swarmed up and tried to kill it as quickly as they could. Otherwise their combos would be interrupted by its freezing energy, and they would freeze to death if the battle took too long.
However, the freezing energy had no effects on Mr. Fang?!
Nalan Mingxue sat near Mr. Fang.
She put down her virtual reality headset and said, “Did you guys notice that the shop owner would slash upward and leap into the air once in a while?”
“What do you mean?!”
“He did that to continue his combo, right?”
“It’s not the time to talk about this!” the warriors of Ultimate West Realm said impatiently, “Obviously, the shop owner cheated!”
After all, he must toss the boss into the air to make it lose balance, so he can continue his combo !
“I don’t think so,” Nalan Mingxue chuckled and said, “I calculated in my mind. The shop owner leaped every five seconds, which is almost as long as the interval for the chilly energy to erupt in the body; I calculated the time of its eruption while I was passing the Shadow Thunderland at Master Difficulty Level.”
