Chapter 775 - Sure-kill Spell
“Could he have forgotten?” Phoenix Rain frowned slightly.
In truth, she had more confidence in her subordinates than in Black Flame. After all, she had gone to great lengths to nurture these subordinates, molding them into experts. Moreover, they wore the best equipment the Phoenix Pavilion had to offer.
She had invested a lot of time and effort into this match.
Even Zero Wing, a Guild famed for its equipment, was unlikely to have better equipment.
Immediately, Phoenix Rain called up the system interface, intending to contact Black Flame. If the man truly wasn’t going to show up, then she could only send her subordinates into the match. Although there was the risk of exposing her ident.i.ty, winning the match was equally important.
Just as Phoenix Rain was about to click “Contact Friend,” s.h.i.+ Feng appeared in her line of sight. However, rather than his appearance of Black Flame, s.h.i.+ Feng wore the features of Ye Feng.
“h.e.l.lo, Phoenix Pavilion Master. I am Ye Feng, the leader of the battle team Guild Leader Black Flame has sent,” s.h.i.+ Feng explained slowly.
“h.e.l.lo. May I know where your Guild Leader is right now?” Phoenix Rain asked as she looked at s.h.i.+ Feng, not taking him seriously.
She knew of Ye Feng. In her opinion, however, this was only a trap Black Flame had set to confuse the enemy battle team. Black Flame should be the battle team’s true leader rather than this young man before her.
“Guild Leader has something important to take care of, so he delegated all responsibilities regarding the battle team to me. If Phoenix Pavilion Master has any questions, please feel free to ask.” s.h.i.+ Feng could tell what was going through Phoenix Rain’s mind. Laughing, he said, “Moreover, Phoenix Pavilion Master, do you really think that it is appropriate for Zero Wing’s Guild Leader to take part in such a compet.i.tion?”
“Then, are you saying that Guild Leader Black Flame won’t be partic.i.p.ating in the Dark Arena at all?” Phoenix Raid asked with a chilling tone, wrathful flames flaring up in her eyes. This development was unexpected.
“Of course. However, Phoenix Pavilion Master, please rest a.s.sured. We won’t disappoint you,” s.h.i.+ Feng said, not particularly minding Phoenix Rain’s anger. Calmly, he continued, “If Phoenix Pavilion Master is still unsure, you can test my strength personally.”
s.h.i.+ Feng was very curious about Phoenix Rain’s current strength.
In the past, countless Guilds had fallen into Phoenix Rain’s hands. There was even on instance where multiple apex experts banded together to deal with Phoenix Rain, yet without exception, she defeated every one of them. Back then, the a.s.sa.s.sination attempt had boosted Phoenix Rain’s prestige in G.o.d’s Domain. She had been given the “Demon Queen” t.i.tle as a result. After all, not only was she a country-toppling beauty, but she also possessed an absolute strength that allowed her to step on apex experts.
Those apex experts, who had tried to deal with Phoenix Rain, had admitted that, when they had fought Phoenix Rain, she had killed them without taking any damage at all.
Those apex experts had been to G.o.ds to s.h.i.+ Feng. He had only been able to look up to them.
Yet, such experts hadn’t been able to land a finger on Phoenix Rain, even after banding together. Phoenix Rain’s strength was inconceivable.
However, after that battle, Phoenix Rain had practically avoided combat. She had left all matters to Blue Phoenix to handle. As a result, Phoenix Rain’s true strength remained a mystery in G.o.d’s Domain.
At this moment, Blue Phoenix stepped forward and said, “As expected of the team leader favored by Guild Leader Black Flame. Since you’re so confident, let me have a bout with you.”
Blue Phoenix was furious with Zero Wing.
Black Flame had actually decided to neglect such an important match, pa.s.sing all responsibility to a subordinate instead. At this point, she intended to teach Zero Wing’s members a lesson and humiliating Black Flame.
“Of course, I have no issues with that. However, it doesn’t seem like we have much time,” s.h.i.+ Feng said after glancing the time.
They only had 15 minutes before the compet.i.tion officially began. If they did not enter the arena before the compet.i.tion started, they would automatically forfeit the match, and their opponents would win without even fighting.
“One minute will be more than enough,” Blue Phoenix said as she glanced at s.h.i.+ Feng’s level, which he had modified to appear as Level 35.
“Phoenix Pavilion Master, what are your thoughts?” s.h.i.+ Feng turned to look at Phoenix Rain.
“I’m also curious about Guild Leader Black Flame’s judgment. Since he has chosen you to serve as the team leader, let me see your strength. If you cannot survive for one minute, I can only say that Guild Leader Black Flame is overly optimistic. If that’s the case, I’ll have to reconsider our cooperation.” Despite observing s.h.i.+ Feng for a long time, she did not think that s.h.i.+ Feng was particularly strong. Although she felt a faint pressure from him, this pressure was minimal. It was far from the ma.s.sive pressure she felt from Black Flame. “The nearby dueling ring is available. You two can fight there.”
In truth, Phoenix Rain was also curious about s.h.i.+ Feng’s ident.i.ty.
She had seen Ye Feng’s name in Zero Wing’s investigation report before. However, Ye Feng had only appeared briefly during G.o.d’s Domain’s early stages. Afterward, he had not accomplished anything notable. Yet, Black Flame had given Ye Feng full authority over the battle team for such an important event like the Dark Arena. Even Aqua Rose, Zero Wing’s Vice-Leader, was only the battle team’s second in command.
How could this situation not pique her interest?
Based on Phoenix Rain’s impression, Black Flame was a man of absolute calm. He knew his priorities and had glimpsed upon the world of the great.
It was impossible that Black Flame did not understand the importance of the Dark Arena. Yet, he still delegated all responsibility to Ye Feng…
It would be unwise to cast aside Ye Feng without testing the young man. Hence, she decided to take the time to test Ye Feng’s strength. If he could last one minute against Blue Phoenix, then he was relatively strong. It would not be impossible for him to secure victory in the upcoming match. After all, the other Zero Wing members of the battle team were relatively strong as well.
“Since Phoenix Pavilion Master doesn’t have any problems with it, I have no issues with it, either,” s.h.i.+ Feng laughed as he walked towards the dueling ring.
There were many dueling rings inside the Underground Arena that players could rent for practice matches. However, the higher rank the dueling ring was, the higher its rental fees were.
In the dueling ring, as soon as Blue Phoenix and s.h.i.+ Feng turned towards each other, the Duel’s countdown began.
Just as the Duel was about to begin, Phoenix Rain suddenly noticed that Zero Wing’s other members weren’t particularly interested in watching. On the contrary, they chatted, carefree, with each other.
“Underestimating my subordinate?” Phoenix Rain could not help but laugh. Her laughter, however, contained a hint of frost.
Blue Phoenix, noticed the behavior of Zero Wing’s members.
Good! Very good! I intended to go easy and let your team leader last a few more seconds. Now, I’ll take him down in five seconds! Blue Phoenix inwardly swore.
Blue Phoenix was a Level 36 Tier 1 Elementalist. Meanwhile, her equipment consisted of Level 35 Dark-Gold and Fine-Gold quality. The staff in her hand was even the Level 30 Dark-Gold ranked Dawn Scepter, a weapon she had obtained from a Level 30 h.e.l.l Mode Team Dungeon. The Dark-Gold ranked staff could even level with her to Level 35. Overall, Blue Phoenix’s magic damage was astonis.h.i.+ng. Even her minor Skills could inflict ma.s.sive damage to an MT of the same Level.
Soon, the bell signaled the start of the Duel.
With a low shout, she began drawing several lines of runes with great familiarity. Immediately, dozens of Ice Spears appeared around her and shot towards s.h.i.+ Feng.
Tier 1 Sure-kill Spell, Ice Madness!
Every Ice Spear contained immense power. Players that came into contact with the spears would suffer a debuff, their Movement Speed reducing by 40% and Attack Speed reducing by 30%.
Under Blue Phoenix’s control, dozens of Ice Spears flew towards s.h.i.+ Feng from all directions. The Swordsman had nowhere to hide.
Moreover, Blue Phoenix had already reached the Void Realm. She could perceive her surroundings and s.h.i.+ Feng’s actions like the back of her hand. With s.h.i.+ Feng’s slightest movements, she could immediately adjust the attack angle of her Ice Spears.
However, this was not all.
Suddenly, Blue Phoenix waved her hand, and two Ice Walls appeared in front of her, preventing s.h.i.+ Feng from charging at her.
