Chapter 479: An Eye for An Eye
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
The three high-tier Demon officers mourned the death of Walkers for a moment before discussing amongst themselves. Through their discussion, Jiang Fei had managed to understand the content of the letter.
The letter was supposed to be a request for reinforcements. However, by the outcome of the fight, the request was useless since the fortress that Walkers held was destroyed and Walkers himself had died.
Ivan turned to Jiang Fei and said, “My brother, you have my thanks for delivering this important document. However, I am unable to have my revenge for Walkers since we are currently at war with the Divine Light Fortress. I have a favor to ask of you. Since we are of the same blood, I would not hold back. I need your help!”
“What can I help you with?” replied Jiang Fei. He was expecting it since the letter delivery quest was the most vanilla method to start a quest.
“Even though we can not take any time out to have revenge for brother Walkers, there is no way I would allow my fellow Demon to die unavenged,” said Ivan.
Ding! Frontline Commander Ivan has a Legendary Hidden Quest for you, An Eye for An Eye! Will you accept it?
After Ivan was finished with his speech, Jiang Fei received a system notification.
“As a fellow Demon, I will have my brother avenged!” said Jiang Fei as he accepted the Legendary Hidden Quest.
“Good answer! You are truly one of the brave Demons!” said Ivan happily.
Ding! You have accepted the quest: An Eye for An Eye!
Quest Name: An Eye for An Eye
Quest Description: The Divine Light Fortress had sent out an assassin to kill Walkers. An eye for an eye. Your mission is to infiltrate the Divine Light Fortress and assassinate the Moonlight Priest!
Quest Reward: 40,000,000 Experience Points, 1,000 Gold Coins, Equipment: Ring of Decimation, Ancient.
Jiang Fei was excited. The quest reward was extremely grand. To match the reward, the quest must be extremely hard. Jiang Fei was naturally happy to see such a grand reward for a Legendary Hidden Quest completion. However, the problem was with the difficulty. Infiltrating a fortress was not a hard task since he could fly in the sky and drop down. He would not need to worry about any of the guards that were blocking the entrance.
Even though Jiang Fei was powerful, he was only at Level 60. The NPC guards and soldiers were all at least at Level 70. The fortress was not really a fortress but a church. Even so, one must never look down on the members of the Luminous Church! A group of Level 70 Advanced Elite soldiers or even a small group of boss-tier monsters would not be easily taken down!
Fighting in the field was different than in the fortress. Field monsters were easy to kite and kill one by one. Even if there was a boss, he could use his morphing skills to kill them off, one at a time. Fighting in a fortress was not easy since NPCs could request for reinforcements when the battle started. Jiang Fei was still at the point where he could only defeat a boss one fight at a time. Should he be faced with a situation where the boss fight required him to fight with his Demon Morph skills, he would need to wait for four hours before he could fight another boss. Slowly grinding his way into the fortress would not be a good idea.
“Lord Commander, I am but willing to sacrifice my life to have revenge for the fallen Walkers. However, I fear that my life alone would not accomplish this mission,” said Jiang Fei as humbly as he could.
“Do not fear, my brother. I trust your ability, hence, your task is only to destroy the four defense towers as well as the two Teleportation Circles that are in the fortress!” said Ivan as he gave Jiang Fei two things.
Military Grade Explosive (Quest Item, Normal)
Use: 30 seconds countdown explosive. If the bomb is not destroyed during the countdown, the bomb will destroy all targets and buildings within 5 meters.
Military Grade Mini Teleportation Device (Quest Item, Normal)
Use: Installs a small Teleportation Circle. 10 seconds installation time.
Jiang Fei carefully examined the properties of the items that Ivan had given to him. One was a box of six explosives and another was a small portable Teleportation Circle. It seemed that his mission was to destroy six buildings and escape using the Teleportation Circle. The rest of the Demon army would handle the rest.
“Lord Commander, you have my promise. I will complete this mission!” said Jiang Fei after he kept the items.
“You have my trust, brother! Godspeed!” said Ivan as he patted Jiang Fei’s shoulders.
“For the Demon Race!” said Jiang Fei as he left the hall. He had been hearing the same phase from other soldiers. It was some form of greeting and salutation. He guessed that he should use it as well.
After leaving the castle, Jiang Fei summoned the Juvenile Skygliding Dragon and flew toward the quest destination. To prevent the Divine Light Fortress from attacking him with their Anti-Air attacks, Jiang Fei flew extremely high to the point where even Hunters with Eagle Eye skill could not detect him.
From that altitude, Jiang Fei could easily infiltrate the territory. However, there was an obvious downside. While others could not see him, Jiang Fei could not see them as well. Jiang Fei could only depend on the minimap to guess his approximate position. There was nothing but darkness from where he was.
When he was directly on top of the Divine Light Fortress, Jiang Fei descended a little and had Isabella use her magic to scout the area. From his point of view, Jiang Fei could only see the entire fortress as a tiny coin. As for people from the fortress, they could only see Jiang Fei as a small pin-sized pixel. Lucky for Jiang Fei, Isabella’s image projection magic could work at that distant.
The so-called fortress was built more like a small town. At all four corners of the town were the scouting towers. The Teleportation Circles were situated in the middle of the town as well as the South Gate. Those were the targets that Jiang Fei needed to destroy. There were other buildings as well such as a governing building, a huge church, various shops, and a merchant complex. Even though the entire town was not huge, the buildings in the town were built fairly close to each other. The Demon faction’s target was located in the Moonlight Church, the building that was attached behind the large church.
Players at this stage of the game were not permitted to freely enter any faction territory. That was why there were no players in the town. Besides NPCs that were mending their shops, there were only soldiers and guards.
“Let’s land there!” said Isabella as she found a small area behind the hills that was slightly far away from the town.
“Alright, that seems like a good spot!”
The landing area was at most a few minutes walk from the town. The place was hidden well amongst the hills which was good since Jiang Fei did not want anyone to spot them.
After landing, Jiang Fei unsummoned the dragon as soon as possible. The dragon might have powerful attack and defense, but its body was too huge. As the quest was a covert mission, he could not let anyone spot the huge behemoth of a dragon too soon!
