822 A Sudden Change

    After his Defense had been weakened, Jiang Fei felt a greater strain when fighting against the boss. He had also become frequently in danger of being killed.

    As Jiang Fei's Defense had been lowered by 50%, the boss' normal attacks could already deal close to 40,000 damage to Jiang Fei. Its Saber Lash was even able to deal a shocking 60,000 damage on the first hit and another 120,000 damage on the second Critical Hit.

    In total, Jiang Fei had less than 200,000 Health points. The two attacks had taken a huge chunk of Jiang Fei's Health Points.

    Fortunately, the boss did not have very high Attack Speed. Although its attacks were painful, the Cauldron of Spirit quickly recovered Jiang Fei to full Health Points.

    "I can't go on like this!" Jiang Fei said to himself. Although he was able to survive the last Saber Lash, Jiang Fei was worried he might be killed by the boss' next skill.

    "Magicians, stop attacking! Use weakening spells on the boss!" Jiang Fei shouted loudly. As the boss was Level 90, it was very likely that it could resist most of the Magicians' skills. Therefore, the Magicians would have to try continuously for their skills to work on the boss.

    After eight of the Magicians received Jiang Fei's order, they began using their weakening skills on the boss. Some of the skills included lowering the boss' Attack Speed and Attack Power. However, as there was a huge gap in level between the boss and these Magicians, most of their skills were not effective. There would only be one successful attempt out of ten or so. In fact, due to the level difference, the spells lasted less than five seconds when they originally lasted up to thirty seconds.

    As such, the Magicians were all focused on using weakening spells on the boss.

    "Whew..." Jiang Fei sighed in relief. Although the Magicians had stopped attacking, they were able to assist Jiang Fei with their weakening spells. Under the influence of their spells, the boss' Attack Power was lowered by around 10% whereas its Attack Speed was lowered by 20%. Hence, Jiang Fei was finally able to relax somewhat.

    Jiang Fei took the opportunity to lure the boss to a location which benefited himself and the other players. Here, they would be able to work together more effectively.

    Right then, the boss was stuck in between Jiang Fei and the others including Anew Returner. Jiang Fei and Anew Returner each stood on either side of the boss. Now, the boss was attacking Jiang Fei's side.

    "Hurry up and die!" Jiang Fei continued to attack while staring at the boss. As soon as the boss showed any signs of using its skill, Jiang Fei would have to react instantly.


    Just as the boss' Health Points was reduced to 80%, it suddenly cried out angrily. At the same time, a golden flame appeared around its body.

    "Use Taunt!" Jiang Fei shouted loudly.

    "Got it!" Anew Returner replied. As soon as Jiang Fei called out, he started activating his Taunt skill.

    The boss immediately turned around to attack Anew Returner after the Taunt skill was used.


    -82,145! (Critical Hit!)

    The boss first used its Saber Lash on Anew Returner. Although Anew Returner was 10 levels lower than Jiang Fei, he was still a professional tanker wearing Plate Armor. Therefore, there were a lot of Damage Reduction effects which applied on him, which meant he received much less damage compared to Jiang Fei. With Anew Returner's pet's Merge skill, taking the damage from the boss' Saber Lash was not an issue for him.





    As soon as Anew Returner was hit, the Clerics behind him started healing him. With the well-timed assistance, Anew Returner's Health Points was fully recovered.


    Right then, the boss activated its ultimate skill.

    Swirling Bash!





    A long list of damage appeared. As the skill's damage was split between twenty-five players, the boss' Swirling Bash was only able to deal 20,000 damage to each player. The players selected to bear the brunt of the damage were all tanker type Classes. Therefore, they were not severely injured.

    After Swirling Bash was used, Clerics immediately started healing those damaged players.


    The boss landed one more attack on Anew Returner. However, as the two-second Taunt effect had come to an end, the boss stopped targeting Anew Returner. After all, Jiang Fei was responsible for most of the damage dealt to the boss. The boss naturally had all its aggro focused on Jiang Fei.

    After the boss turned toward Jiang Fei, the battle returned to its initial cycle. Jiang Fei and the others had specifically set the battle up this way. Anew Returner and the other forty players behind him had only one task. The twenty-five tankers including Anew Returner were in charge of absorbing the attack from the boss' Swirling Bash, while the remaining Clerics were in charge of keeping these tankers alive.

    From the look of things, their plan was working effectively. The boss' ultimate skill was not able to threaten any of their lives due to the well-planned strategy.

    However, there was an added state of Insult to Injury above the heads of Anew Returner and the others.

    Insult to Injury: When hit by Swirling Bash again, the damage received increases by 100%! The effect lasts for twenty seconds.

    "Oh no! Guild master, we can't be attacked by its skill again!" Anew Returner shouted loudly. At the same time, he told Jiang Fei about the attributes of Insult to Injury.

    "Seven Stars Warrior, gather twenty-four other players with more than 20,000 Health Points and position them behind me!" Jiang Fei shouted loudly. The situation had taken him by surprise. As the skill's effect was not displayed in the boss' list of skills, Jiang Fei and the others had not been able to anticipate it in advance.

    "Alright!" Seven Stars Warrior started gathering the players. Although there were not many players with more than 50,000 Health Points, there were plenty of them with more than 20,000 Health Points. Apart from a few weaker players, most were able to satisfy Jiang Fei's requirement.


    Right then, a golden flame started appearing around the boss' body yet again.

    "Alright!" Anew Returner used Taunt on the boss once again.





    After the damage was increased by 100%, Anew Returner and the rest of the players damaged by the skill instantly lost most of their Health Points. Although the Clerics frantically tried to heal them, the Insult to Injury effect was applied on them yet again. The damage they would receive next was increased to 3x.

    If they were attacked by the Swirling Bash within the next twenty seconds, they would receive 60,000 damage. Apart from Anew Returner and a few strong tankers, most of those players would be killed immediately.

    "Seven Stars Warrior! Get them into position, quickly!" Jiang Fei urged. Jiang Fei must absorb the damage from the next Swirling Bash. Otherwise, Anew Returner and the others would all be annihilated.
