Chapter 631: The Fella Fresher Than Seafood
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
“F*ck! What kind of rotten idea is this?” The moment Wang Yu suggested that, everyone almost spat out blood.
Regis was a peak grade NPC. Snatching from his hands? How was this different from extracting your tooth in front of a tiger’s den?
“Or you guys have an idea even better than mine?” Wang Yu asked.
“At least any idea will not be worse than yours! I doubt the few of us will even be able to deal with a single finger of Regis,” Frost Blade said with fear.
As Regis’s disciple, Reynolds was already able to cause such a huge commotion with a simple wave of his hand. This old fella was definitely not one to be trifled with. There are many ways to die so why must they choose to die by offending this frightening old man?
Wang Yu looked over at Regis before saying, “Have you guys not heard of taking advantage of a person’s weak health to take his life? Have you forgotten about the crafty BOSS back in the faction dungeon?”
“This…” Everyone was slightly surprised.
Currently, Regis was extremely weak and was definitely not at the peak phase of his strength. Earlier on, the Quan Zhen Sect had clearly offended him during his closed doors cultivation. However, he merely expressed his unhappiness through words but didn’t attack them. Evidently, his strength must have decreased very significantly, and they might even be able to kill him in his current state.
“Do you think Reynolds will come after us if we kill him? And if he doesn’t drop what we want, won’t we be putting ourselves in a lot of trouble?” Ming Du, who had always done things without considering the consequence, started being more cautious than ever.
He had no choice because the quest was his and the person who gave him the quest was Regis’ disciple. If he decided to look into this, Reynolds, as a hero NPC, would definitely be capable of making Ming Du’s life as a Magician extremely difficult.
Moreover, if killing him does not expose the coordinates of the holy hidden grounds, wouldn’t they be killing the goose that lays the golden eggs?
“You b*stard! You want to kill an old man like him?” Wang Yu replied in a disdainful tone.
Regis was, after all, still an ally and an elder. Robbing him was simply because they had no other alternative and yet Ming Du was still considering killing him? This was asking for a middle finger.
“Exactly! He is a b*stard!” Everyone started reprimanding Ming Du in fear of being scolded by Wang Yu.
“Tsk! You bunch of losers! What can we do if we don’t kill him? Don’t tell me he will give it to us if we beat him up?” Ming Du asked.
“True, NPC will not be afraid of death so even if we beat him up, I doubt he will give us what we want. That might even diminish any last hope that he will hand it to us,” the other people around also commented.
Wang Yu looked at Frost Blade before suggesting, “We can steal…”
“Eh? Not a bad idea! If we cannot snatch it from him, we can steal from him…” Everyone followed Wang Yu’s eyes as their eyes lit up when they saw Frost Blade.
Frost Blade had the [Pickpocket] skill. What was the difference between normal pickpocket and a Godhand’s pickpocket skill? Normal pickpocket could only work on items in a bag and was completely useless against a target of a much higher level than oneself.
However, a Godhand’s [Pickpocket] was different. Against an enemy of higher level than oneself, the skill would only be weakened but other than that, there was basically no limits to it. Without being limited to only items in a bag, the possibility of stealing a person’s current outfit could be as high as 30%. How was this [Pickpocket]? This was basically [Robbing].
“We can try!” Frost Blade nodded. “But how are we going to steal it?” There would certainly be consequences if they failed and it was unlikely that Regis would simply stand there for them to steal from him.
“We will beat him to half his health before pinning him to the ground to snatch it from him… Oh I mean steal.” Wang Yu’s idea was extremely simple but violent.
“So simple?” Ming Du asked in amazement.
“Simplicity is beauty,” Wang Yu replied.
At that moment, Regis seemed to have realised that they were planning something. Seeing how the few of them were looking at him with bad intentions, he asked, “How? Did you guys come up with something in exchange for my trust?”
“En… We did…”
After saying that, Ling Longmeng and Yang Nuo were the first to act. They took out their bows to fire arrows towards Regis.
“Tsk, Shadow Binding Arrows?” When Regis saw that Quan Zhen Sect dared to attack him, he was both shocked and angered. He immediately moved his left hand and a shield made of mud rose from the ground to block Yang Nuo and Ling Longmeng’s arrows. Following that, Regis’ forefingers moved a few times and three black radiance landed on the shadows of the two of them. The two of them were no longer able to move and concurrently, lightning gathered at the fingertip of Regis’ finger. It was aimed at the two of them.
“It was the [Shadow Binding Technique]. This old man knows how to control shadows!” Ling Longmeng panicked and informed the guild chat.
Regis’s [Shadow Bind Technique] was several folds stronger than Ling Longmeng’s [Shadow Bind Arrows]. Just the root (to the spot) and silence effect lasted up to 15 seconds which was already 10 times longer than Ling Longmeng’s skill.
“Rescue Clear Snow and Sister Meng!” Boson shouted at Crotch Lord the moment he saw that their two Archers were about to die as he jumped over together with Crotch Lord.
“Haha.” Regis laughed coldly as the lightning stopped gathering at his finger. Instead, he turned his palm to face downwards and a piece of blue spread out with Regis in the centre. In the very next moment, the ground beneath Boson and Crotch Lord turned into ice.
Just as Boson and Crotch Lord were rushing over, the ground turned into ice and they lost their balance. The two of them clashed into each other before Regis waved his palm at the two of them to turn them into ice…
Fortunately, their sacrifice gave Spring Halo enough time to summon six Demons of War to surround Regis. The staff on his right hand executed the [Holy Word Technique]. He immediately removed the effect on Ling Longmeng’s body to return her freedom.
After freeing Ling Longmeng and Yang Nuo, he automatically took a few steps back.
“Holy Word Technique, Demons of War? Are you a Judgement Priest? A member of the Grand Cathedral?” Looking at Spring Halo’s skills, Regis’ aggro shifted target.
Following that, Regis’ forefinger and middle finger combined to draw out a dazzling cross in front of him. Spring Halo’s demons were instantly dissolved, and Regis charged towards Spring Halo.
Looking at how powerful Regis was, Ming Du, who was initially planning to attack, retracted his staff. It was no wonder he was Reynolds’ master. Just like that, Regis used dark, ground, lightning, light and ice magic skills. Wouldn’t he be asking for trouble to use magic in front of him?
Seeing Regis’ arrival, Spring Halo waved his staff emotionlessly. The Dark Barrier rose to envelop him within it.
Even so, Regis’ right arm extended forward to pierce right through the Dark Barrier. The Dark Barrier shattered, and Spring Halo’s health decreased by one third.
“Shadows Chain Kick!” Vainglory shouted loudly with gusto as his flying kick was targeted at Regis’ back. Without even turning his head, a twitch of his shoulders summoned a tornado strong enough to send the flying Vainglory several metres away. He instantly knocked Vainglory into the shelves of books in the library.
After seeing Vainglory hurt, Ming Du couldn’t help but scold, “Little Chicky, are you stupid or what? Why would you execute your skill so loudly? You deserve to be beaten up.”
In the game, the reciting of skills could be adjusted, and the Quan Zhen Sect had always adjusted their volume to the lowest. Vainglory had just learnt this skill, so he wasn’t done with showing it off. In the end, he was swept away by Regis like an ant.
