Virtual World: Conquering the World Chapter 43

Chapter 43: Iron Armour Guards
In less than an hour, we had already cleared all the monsters on the second floor of the Ancient Ghost Temple.  I couldn’t help being surprised by our strength.  In a short amount of time, Purple Rhyme gained another level, reaching level 32 and Ling Xue also reached level 34.  I had reached level 35 and as for Ling Yue, our highest level player, she had reached level 35!

The Spirit Warriors dropped several pieces of Bronze Equipment, which was distributed to everyone evenly.  I obtained a leather helmet that had 55 defense and although its stats were not bad, it could not compare with the Scarlet Flame Set.  So, I threw it into my inventory to sell back in the city.

During this period, I went back to the first floor once and found that it had been occupied by a decent sized guild.  It was like they had found a treasure and happily blocked off the first floor, not letting anyone go to the second floor.  This was also good because it helped relief us from extra worries!
On the second floor, the Spirit General had already been killed by me and Ling Xue and had not respawned yet.  So, after we killed all the small monsters, we were able to access the third floor of the ancient temple!

When we reached the Ancient Ghost Temple’s third floor, we were met with a cold breeze.  Looking up, we were shocked.  In front of us, there were demonized warriors with shields in their hands.  These warriors had already died and their faces were completely dried, giving them a fierce appearance.  There was a shield in one hand and the other had was holding a short blade.

[Iron Armour Guards] (Enhance Monsters)
Level: 40

Attack: 200-280

Defense: 400

HP: 4000
Ling Xue was a little surprised and was scared by the Iron Armour Guards’ terrifying faces.  She quickly turned around to hold my arm as she said, “Little fool, isn’t this monster too disgusting?”

I revealed a smile, “You’re just not used to them yet.  Forget about it, let my pull in these monsters instead!”

Ling Xue revealed a smile of joy and said, “Un, thank you!”

I revealed a faint smile.  Actually having me pull in the monsters was quite reasonable.  I currently had a defense of 225 and could definitely withstand the Iron Armour Guard’s 280 attack.  As well, the monster’s defense was quite high, having a defense of 400, so even my armour piercing arrow would not do much to it.  Instead, Ling Xue with her Light Flow Sword would be better at breaking this monster’s defense, but of course, our main damage source would be Ling Yue!

Against the defense of heavy armours, magic damage had a 25% increase in damage.  Using the Scarlet Flame Sea to kill these high defense monsters was the best option here!
I put away my Golden Bow and took out the Light Wave Dagger, charging right at the monsters.  In less than half a minute, I came back with a group of Iron Armour Guards following behind me, but my HP was close to empty.  I was quickly swallowing health potions when Purple Rhyme’s heals came late!

Instantly, Ling Yue released the Scarlet Flame Sea onto the third floor and the intense flames burned the Iron Armour Guards.  With the increased damage, the level 40 Enhanced Iron Armour Guards fell to the ground and became experience points for us!
Ling Xue gripped the Light Flow Sword in her hand and attacked the Iron Armour Guard that was closest to her.  Her over 500 attack power had no fear of the Iron Armour Guard’s high defense, dealing over 500 points of damage!

At this time, I had no choice but to accept this face.  At the beginning stages, heavy armour Jobs lacked equipment so they did not have a high enough defense, but in the later stages when a variety of heavy armour dropped, this gave a large increase to the defense of Swordsmen and Knights.  Archers of the same level did not have enough attack to break through their defenses and only mages could deal with these high defense Jobs.  The only place for Assassins and Archers were, taking care of Mages and Clerics!

Without the firepower of the Thousand Bladed Arrows, it was a little harder on Ling Yue, but she still took care of all the monsters in 10 minutes and my Thousand Bladed Arrows reached the intermediate level.  I left the equipment and gold coins on the floor for Ling Xue to pick up while I went to pull in the next group of monsters.

After two hours, the entire Ancient Ghost Tomb’s third floor was cleared.

While we were standing in a corner of the main hall, a terrifying aura could be felt.  Everyone looked at each other and if we weren’t wrong, this was definitely the boss of the third floor!

Ling Xue asked, “Little fool, are you going to pull it in or should I do it?”

I pondered for a bit, “Ling Xue, you can do it.”

“Why?”  Ling Xue raised her head and looked at me.

I waved my hand and said, “There’s no other way.  You have double the defense I do and your HP is much higher than mine!”

Ling Xue gave a gentle laugh, “Your explanation passes.  Alright, I’ll be right back!”

After she said this, Ling Xue jumped out of the corner.  I did not feel assured, so I followed after her.

Seeing the ground split apart, instantly we saw a giant figure appear from the ground!  With a body covered in black armour and two prominent sharp blades at its jaw, this giant looked like a giant dung beetle!

“Ya!  What is that thing?  Little fool, run away!”

Ling Xue was so scared that her face turned pale as she turned around and pulled me back into the corner.

After I was pulled back into the corner in a hurry by Ling Xue, Ling Yue immediately asked in a surprised voice, “What’s wrong?  Why are you so scared?”

Ling Xue looked back to point as she said, “Elder sister!  There’s a beetle over there!”

Ling Yue said, “Are beetles that terrifying?  You guys are really…..”

As soon as her voice fell, an explosion sounded out.  The sharp blades in front of the beetle pierced through the wall and its giant body broke through the wall!

I could not see its stats at all so I asked, “Ling Yue, can you see its level?”

Ling Yue quickly looked at it and then gave us its information as she began to run away.

[Rotten Devourer] (Silver Grade Boss)

Level: 42

Attack: 350-440

Defense: 500

HP: 50000

Defense Type: Heavy Armour.  Will suffer extra damage from magic attacks.

“Fuck!  Such a strong defense!”

I couldn’t help shouting out in surprise.  After seeing that the boss’ attack wasn’t that strong, Ling Xue puffed out her chest and revealed a smile.  Raising her Light Flow Sword, she had a smile on her face as she said, “Let’s start!  Elder sister Purple Rhyme, please focus on healing me!”

Purple Rhyme immediately stopped and nodded with a smile.

Ling Xue charged forward and raised the Light Flow Sword before slashing down!

With a “peng” sound, the Light Flow Sword left a mark on the beetle’s shell and dealt “324” damage to it!

I was a slightly startled and immediately released an armour piercing arrow.  Seeing a white light fly out, a “326” damage figure appeared above the beetle’s head.

So it wasn’t that bad compared to Ling Xue.

At this moment, Ling Yue’s fireball flew out and hit the beetle’s shell, dealing an impressive “1024” damage to it!

She really was worthy of being the number one female mage in «Spirit of Grief», this kind of attack was not something others could compare with!

The beetle launched an attack and its jaw blades slashed across Ling Xue’s shoulder.  Seeing the glow of blood, Ling Xue suffered 500 points of damage, but Purple Rhyme’s heal came right on time and returned the HP she lost.  Like this, Ling Xue just needed to use a few potions and she would be able to easily withstand the boss without any problem!

For a while, at the end of the third floor, there were the loud sounds of fighting ringing out!

At this moment, those level 25 players that were risking their lives to kill the level 28 Blue Wolf Guards.  If they were able to see this scene, it was unknown what kind of reaction they would have.  Perhaps a level 42 boss would seem like nothing more than an illusion to them!

After a short bit, Ling Yue’s fireball and Scarlet Flame Sea cut down a large part of the beetle’s HP.  Ling Xue was also adding insult to injury by continuously using her Sweeping Away Thousand Soldiers skill.

Finally, with an armour piercing arrow from me, the beetle finally passed away and fell to the floor like a little hill!


System Notification: Congratulations, your team has killed the Silver Level Rotten Devourer.  You have received 70000 experience points and 350 Prestige!

The four members evenly divided the experience from the boss.  Although it wasn’t a lot, it wasn’t that little either.

Ling Xue hated the beetle because it was disgusting, so the battlefield was cleaned by me.  By the corpse of the beetle, I found 27 gold coins, a pair of armoured leg guards, and a skill book.

Seeing the glow on the leg guards, it was clear that it was not an ordinary thing.
