Shen Yin Wang Zuo, Chapter 307: Competition (I)
What were Bloodthirsty Berserk Demon?!. They were powerhouses among the Berserk Demons, and their difference when compared to the basic Berserk Demons, was that they reached the sixth step of cultivation. They were a rare type of demon, only using physical attacks to battle.
The words Lin Xin used to describe Sima Xian would be comparatively more suited to describe Bloodthirsty Berserk Demon, their head being totally filled with muscles. However, no matter how distinct the weaknesses of a Bloodthirsty Berserk Demon could be, namely that they weren’t capable of long ranged attacks or magic attacks, they were in the end powerhouses of the sixth step! How could they not have some advantages?
Their tyrannical build made up for the fact they didn’t have any control over elements, and their powerful physical attacks would sweep everything before them. Even amongst the other demons of the sixth step, none would be willing to fight head-on against a madman such as a Bloodthirsty Berserk Demon. Once it started to attack, a Bloodthirsty Berserk Demon would not stop until death, and it would do so against humans as well as demons.
To a human mage at whom a Bloodthirsty Berserk Demon charged, seeing his malevolent face draw closer and both his spiked arms point at his neck with a cruel roar, not peeing himself or defecating unconsciously was already incredible.
That water elemental mage was very scared, falling on the ground, totally blank.
Chen Ying’er curled her lip from afar, “What a waste! If I had known, I wouldn’t have used a magical crystal of the sixth step. What a waste.” But before her words were spoken, her voice instantly became hurried and sharp, “Eh! Don’t intervene, referee, that’s not a demon…”
A Bloodthirsty Berserk Demon appearing in the headquarters of the Priest Temple, what kind of situation was that? The appearance of that Bloodthirsty Berserk Demon was just too sudden, so much that even the referee who was at the eighth step didn’t spare a thought before arriving in front of the Bloodthirsty Berserk Demon in a flash, punching at him.
The reaction of the Bloodthirsty Berserk Demon wasn’t slow either, stamping on the ground and immediately lowering himself down. And at the same time the knight’s toes came in contact with the ground, this massive body was sent flying, but in this process of flying, the Demon Hunters observing the battle all saw clearly his body shrink down suddenly, and at the time it fell to the ground, it had already reverted back to its previous shape of a little pig, to which direction Chen Ying’er rushed out in total alarm.
That was a powerhouse of the eighth step! Against that, even in a transformed state of Bloodthirsty Berserk Demon, the little plump McDull was no match. Originally, he was unsatisfied of those harsh days of training in the Tower of Eternity, being abused every day so painfully, but now, he only felt deep gratitude for the increase of his battle skills due to having been beaten up so much by the tyrannical red skeleton. Of course, only after being completely wounded every day that this pig learned through experience and danger.
The referee was at that time really shocked. Even with his cultivation at the eighth step, it was the first time he had seen something like this. Hurriedly, he walked toward Chen Ying’er, planning to ask about that.
Without even letting the referee the time to open his mouth, Chen Ying’er was already like a little hot pepper, “What were you just doing? Without any observation, you just intervene like that? How are you going to compensate if you have wounded my McDull? Do you know how important he is to me? He’s my contracted summoned beast! If you hadn’t any knowledge I would understand, but haven’t you seen magical beast that could transform before? Could you be any more of an idiot?! Hmpf!”
Having lost herself in swears, Chen Ying’er furiously flung back her twintails, directly heading back to the lounge. Her voice being so loud, every Demon Hunter in the lounge heard her clearly. Hoots of laughter immediately burst out. This girl was really something, for her to even dare to swear at a Saint Knight of the eighth step; that was really an exceptional sight.
The referee gloomily let out the thoughts, who asked him to transform into a demon? And I have really never seen any magical beast that could transform!
Han Qian yelled as he covered his face, trying to resist the urge to laugh with great difficulty, “Okay, let the tournament continue. The winner of this battle is the 36th contestant.”
Who was Chen Ying’er? She was the granddaughter of granny Sanshui. And Sanshui’s temperament even terrified Ying Suifeng and himself. Being the granddaughter to whom she taught personally, it would have been strange if she had a good temperament.
After sitting down anew, Han Qian gave a glance at Long Haochen’s direction without batting an eyelid, thinking to himself, Looks like the companions by the side of this kid, Haochen, are also becoming stronger.
Yang Wenzhao’s mouth was wide agape, completely blank, How could Ying’er become so strong? And was that her contracted beast? So now, she’s not the same unreliable summoner as in the past anymore? For a moment, his mind was in complete chaos.
The competition went on, and although the previous battle was truly a marvel, this competition made everyone prioritize their personal benefit, fighting with their full strength, single-mindedly. Thus everyone was single-mindedly devoted to his own goals, not paying much attention to others. Furthermore, although that little pig McDull’s ability to transform into a Bloodthirsty Berserk Demon was incredible, the flaws of a Bloodthirsty Berserk Demon were pretty obvious. This kind of demon who was also unequipped, was pretty easy to deal with with enough preparation.
The second member of the 21st general grade Demon Hunt Squad to appear on stage was Lin Xin. Somehow, it turned out that the two in the team with the weakest battle strength were the first to go on stage.
Lifting his Fire Cloud Staff, Lin Xin flung his own hair elegantly, showing a smile to the nearby Li Xin before heading to the field in large steps.
Li Xin naturally came to such an important competition, but of course, she didn’t give herself much pressure. After all, she had just recently broken through the fifth step, and although she managed to increase her spiritual energy above 3,000 by relying on the Holy Spirit Pill, it was obviously not realistic for her to expect herself to win in such a competition.
Seeing Lin Xin going on stage against all expectations, Li Xin couldn’t help but feel startled, and a look of anxiety appeared on her charming face. Rapidly coming to the side of the 21st general grade Demon Hunt Squad, she sat near Long Haochen.
“Little brother, how could he participate in the competition too? Isn’t he not even capable of attacking!?” Li Xin asked discreetly.
Long Haochen chuckled to her, replying, “There’s nothing to worry about, sis. Even if he’s unable to win, he won’t lose his match either. Just look at him. Lin Xin’s recent progress isn’t small. He said that he had to cultivate harder if he wanted to deserve being with you.”
“Peh, so even you are starting to make fun of your big sister? What is about deserving it or not…” Lin Xin blushed, but still couldn’t help but look at Lin Xin on stage.
Lin Xin had really good potential as a yielding character. In front of Li Xin, he appeared lovably honest, and even hard-working to achieve his goals. Frequently offering little gifts to Li Xin, he made her resign with his persistence, and gradually gained a certain place in her heart.
At the very beginning, Li Xin mainly sympathized because of Lin Xin’s miserable past, but as time passed by, she discovered that Lin Xin was actually pretty decent. Although this guy was somewhat narcissistic, his looks were still good. And furthermore, his talent in the field of alchemy was indeed enough for him to be called a genius. But more importantly, this guy was easy to bully.
At this time, Lin Xin was already in the middle of the field, and his opponent was a warrior, but it was a rather thin-looking one. Clad in simple leather armor, he had a little battle axe in each hand. Clearly, this warrior was specialized in speed.
Mage against warrior would start with a distance of thirty meters separating both parties. With a call from the referee, the match started, and right off the bat, that warrior launched a charge at Lin Xin’s direction.
Lin Xin’s luck was clearly not as good as it was for Chen Ying’er, his opponent being an authentic powerhouse of the sixth step. A pair of modest-sized green spiritual wings were released on his back. They weren’t used for flight, but pushed him forward like a green ray of light rushing towards Lin Xin.
A dense red light came out instantly from Lin Xin’s body, and without any incantation from him, his Fire Cloud Crystal was directly inserted in the ground, and red light was released from his staff and himself. From it, the intense and rich fluctuations of spiritual energy coming out gave off an oppressive feeling. But no one could predict what kind of spell this guy was going to use.
The warrior specialized in wind element, and had the boost from a pair of wind elemental wings, so one could well imagine the level his speed reached. Relying on his cultivation at the sixth step, he wasn’t even visible to Lin Xin’s eyes, and with this extreme speed, just rushed vigorously towards Lin Xin’s.
Speed and force were directly related, thus the warrior was already prepared to respond to Lin Xin’s spell. His dual axes had a magic break effect, and were filled with a pretty good amount of spiritual energy. At that moment, the dual axes already became green-colored because of the concentration of spiritual energy within, and his current thought was, just which place should he attack Lin Xin, after all this wasn’t a fight to death, and he couldn’t cripple the opponent.
However, what astounded everyone was that Lin Xin didn’t do anything as his opponent charged at him, just looking helplessly at the other party.
Of course, that wind element warrior’s speed was extremely fast, and it took only a few blinks of an eye for him to arrive in front of Lin Xin, waving his pair of battle axes.
A victorious smile was already drawn on the face of that wind element warrior. To a mage confronting a warrior, when the opponent was in close range, the match was fated to be a loss. However, his opponent wasn’t careless, still storing up spiritual energy in preparation for Lin Xin’s possible counterattack.
Just when the two parties were only at two meters from each other, Lin Xin finally showed some reaction, letting out an intense scarlet glow spreading out around him.
It was Resisting Ring of Fire, a low level technique without any offensive power, its main effect was to push back the opponent, to avoid the opponent’s attacks. This was also one of the self-defense techniques used by fire mages.
Seeing the opponent finally launch a mere Resisting Ring of Fire after such a long time, the wind warrior finally couldn’t help but let out a smile. Trying to stop me by relying on Resisting Ring of Fire? Brazenly moving the battle-ax in his left hand forward, he planned on using the magic breaking effects of his battle-ax, breaking through this Resisting Ring of Fire open would be very extremely easy.
But would it really end this way?
