Chapter 38 Only so-so
Ye Tian Xie observed the formation, then corners of his mouth drew back and he revealed a strange smile. He liked challenges, he liked the stimulation, he liked exciting challenges. Looking at this hard to challenge formation of 12 wild man eating plants, you could almost hear the sound of his blood pumping.
The monsters of the trial were not set, particularly for harder level trials, the monsters changed depending on the job of the challenger…..for example, if this were a different circumstance and Ye Tian Xie had a long range job, then the monsters of the trial would not be these unmoving wild man eating flowers, instead they would be monsters with high movement speed that can prevent players from opening a gap. Although Ye Tian Xie did not have a job, his stats made him suitable for melee combat, so the monsters given to him were these unmoving wild man eating flowers that were hard to approach and place in a formation that was impossible to take down one by one.
Each wild man eating flower was as tall as a person, a blue cane like body with a large red flower bud atop, no rules against swinging its body. If one looked closely, on the flower bud you could distinctly see two rows of light reflecting teeth. 12 man eating flowers in a semicircle with a diameter of 4 meters, giant red buds colliding as they swayed.
Ye Tian Xie considered for a bit and then simply walked forward. Each man eating flower was not taller than 2 meters, meaning its attack range was less than 2 meters. And they were arranged in this shape……
Ye Tian Xie suddenly shot forward, a disdainful smile appeared on his lips as he footsteps became faster. The swaying man eating flowers suddenly became aware of life near them and one by one the closed buds turned towards Ye Tian Xie.
If he attacked from the left or right side, by attacking the man eating flower, since the other man eating flowers would be so close to it, they would all join in to help the man eating flower being attacked. At the same time, because of the attack range and the gap between him and the plants, only so many man eating flowers could attack him at once…….Then what would happen if he rushed in from the middle of the man eating plants?
Ye Tian Xie’s eyes became focused as he used his vision to find the perfect spot……The spot where all 12 of the man eating flowers could attack, the heart of the semi circle formation!
Ye Tian Xie’s body jerked and he jumped into the air, landing right on the point as he calculated. Instantly, the moment his toes touched the ground, he felt 12 bursts of wind around him as 12 open mouths shot at him, 12 separate pairs of drool drenched teeth biting at the same time at his body.
Ye Tian Xie was not worried, for this was what he wanted. His toes slightly pushed off against the ground, his originally moving forward body suddenly flew backward and he flew back around 10 cm, twelve groups of teeth merged together right where he was standing…..but missed just enough to not touch his clothes.
The 12 blooming buds began to move back and Ye Tian Xie suddenly move forward a small half step, his arms extended and the Moment of Destiny in his hand flew forward in a jet black arc.
-172, -168, -169, -166…….
With the length of Ye Tian Xie’s arm and Moment of Destiny combined, it created an attack range of over 2 meters. So from his position, the black sweeping arc hit all 12 of the man eating flowers and 12 red damage number showed up, but they…..did not immediately disappear as the number increased as Moment of Destiny was swung in a reverse arc, once again hitting all 12 of the man eating flowers…..with the attack range of Moment of Destiny and the man eating plants, as long as Ye Tian Xie slightly moved back several centimeters, it was impossible for him to be hit.
The minute the second attack finished, Ye Tian Xie’s body moved forward a small step which was followed by……12 cold breeze hitting his chest.
One spot, one spot that could make all 12 man eating flower attack together. As long as he stayed on that one point, all 12 man eating flowers would attack him, after they attack all he had to do was step back. Facing these consistent moving man eating flowers, Ye Tian Xie could easily dodge their attacks.
But if he stepped even slightly left or right of this point, then the effects would change. The flowers attacking Ye Tian Xie would not be uniform, some man eating flowers would attack together and then the other flowers would attack in turns, making it hard for him to dodge and counterattack.
The current scene, Ye Tian Xie was unscathed, the 12 wild man eating plants had lost ⅓ of their HP. With Moment of Destiny in hand, every time he increase his stats he would always put everything into his strength, currently Ye Tian Xie’s attack power was over 200, it was at least double the value of normal players.
While the man eating flower’s attack speed was fast, its frequency was low, each time they attacked Ye Tian Xie could only get two attacks in, but Ye Tian Xie was different from ordinary people, he was born with incredible reflexes that allowed him to calmly withdraw and even go in for a counterattack. If the chaotic attacks of the man eating flower had no patterns, it would be hard for him, but facing this kind of attacks from them, he did not feel any pressure.
The third scene, Moment of Destiny still swept through the man eating flowers, suddenly, two man eating flowers’ HP were drained by a critical hit. Another black arc swung out, the remaining 10 man eating flowers soon all fell down, the HP drained man eating flowers withered away.
“Only so-so.” Ye Tian Xie disdainfully smiled, from the corpse of the man eating flowers in front of him, he found a Bronze Equipment and two Steel Grade Equipment which he put in his inventory. Although the man eating flowers were strong, but since they were one star small bosses, their drop rates were also much better than normal monsters.
After taking the money, potions and other spoils of war, Ye Tian Xie squatted down and attempted to use the Harvest skill on the man eating flower corpses.
“Ding…..Unable to harvest Wild Man Eating Flower corpses.”
Ye Tian Xie stood up, stepped over the man eating flower corpses and walked over to the stone door, then he placed his hand on the door. The first room, he won pretty easily, it only took a couple of seconds and he was completely unharmed…….But this kind of ease only applied to him. And regardless of his accurate positioning and distance calculation, most people would not have the same kind of nerve or self confidence…….In that one position you provoked all 12 man eating flowers to attack you at once, it definitely was the best plan, but if you were even slow by a second, you would be hit by all 12 of them at once and be without a doubt – get instakilled!
Behind the opened stone door, the grass was no longer gentle green and the atmosphere gave off a depressing feeling, the air became colder.
In front of him, were still man eating flowers, the same as before, the same appearance, the same distribution, the only difference was the colour……
