Chapter 804 - Wind G.o.d's Spear
"Is he the person you were talking about?"
The female Berserker and her two male companions s.h.i.+fted their gazes towards s.h.i.+ Feng.
The young man wore a Black Cloak and silver armor. From his waist hung two exquisite longswords, one white and one black. Every one of his movements felt natural and graceful. His actions lacked any awkwardness, so much so that, if they did not focus on this young man, their minds might ignore him altogether. Moreover, the young man did not give off the familiar pressure they usually felt from experts. On the contrary, he felt safe and relatable.
As s.h.i.+ Feng made his way through the bar, players seemed to move out of his way as if trying to avoid him intentionally. It was as if they couldn't sense s.h.i.+ Feng's existence.
It did not take long for s.h.i.+ Feng to move through the crowd and reach the party.
"Big Brother Ye Feng, you've finally arrived! We were just talking about you!" Blue Bamboo said, giggling. "Let me introduce you.
"This great beauty is Autumn Goose, this gentleman with the beard is called Death Wind, and this handsome man is Gunfire. They are members of Wind G.o.d's Spear."
"h.e.l.lo," s.h.i.+ Feng said, smiling as he looked at the three people. Inwardly, however, he was surprised.
He was familiar with the name "Wind G.o.d's Spear."
The name belonged to an independent organization similar to the famous Midnight Tea Party, and it based its operations in the Dark Night Empire. Independent players that disliked the restriction of Guilds and preferred adventure would usually form independent organizations to conquer certain quests that could not be completed alone.
Among the independent organizations in the past, Wind G.o.d's Spear had been relatively famous. This organization had once completed several Legendary Quests.
Legendary Quests were difficult enough to give even Super Guilds pause, not accepting one unless they were extremely confident in succeeding. However, the Wind G.o.d's Spear contained countless players who would not hesitate to take up the challenge. To put it simply, they were a bunch of lunatics with no fear of death.
When everyone had believed that the organization would fail, the Wind G.o.d's Spear shattered these naysayers' beliefs, completing one Legendary Quest after another.
Aside from those who loved to challenge deadly quests, the Wind G.o.d's Spear also contained players with a furious love of battle.
Every member within the organization was a battle-maniac. They had often challenged G.o.d's Domain's experts in the past. These players would even hunt down the older monsters from Super Guilds for a duel. Unfortunately, s.h.i.+ Feng was not privy to the outcome of those fights. However, seeing as the Wind G.o.d's Spear had still been around after a decade and had even become a legend in the eyes of many independent players…
As for the three people before him right now, s.h.i.+ Feng had heard of two of them before: the s.h.i.+eld Warrior Death Wind and the Berserker Gunfire. Both of them had taken part in a Legendary Quest in the past.
Even an apex expert of G.o.d's Domain would not have more than a 20% success rate against a Legendary Quest. Meanwhile, these two had completed a Legendary Quest before. Their abilities were unquestionable. They were extremely powerful.
s.h.i.+ Feng had thought that Thoughtful Rain would, at most, have a few ordinary elite players accompanying her. He had never imagined she knew such experts.
If an elite party tried to complete the Silver Legend quest, even if they succeeded, their completion rate would not be high. However, with this group, achieving a high completion rate would be a piece of cake.
Just who is this girl? Curiosity overwhelmed s.h.i.+ Feng as he s.h.i.+fted his gaze towards the quiet Thoughtful Rain.
The first time they met, s.h.i.+ Feng felt as if he had seen Thoughtful Rain before, but he couldn't recall meeting her elsewhere. She felt both familiar and unfamiliar to him, yet he couldn't remember an expert named Thoughtful Rain in G.o.d's Domain during his previous life.
Meanwhile, now that he met Thoughtful Rain again, both her aura and strength had undergone a heaven-defying change. If she continued to develop at this pace, she would definitely become more than an ordinary expert. Moreover, with the fact that she knew members of the Wind G.o.d's Spear, it was even less possible that she had been an unknown ent.i.ty in G.o.d's Domain in the past.
"h.e.l.lo," Autumn Goose and the others returned s.h.i.+ Feng's greeting. "It seems that Blue hadn't been exaggerating. If we can have an expert like you with us, we should be able to complete this quest with ease."
They had not expected that Zero Wing also had someone like this in its ranks.
To ordinary players, s.h.i.+ Feng was an ordinary young man. However, they were neither ordinary players nor ordinary experts.
After hundreds of life-and-death battles and overcoming their limits, again and again, not only had they cultivated a beast-like intuition, but they had also gained the ability to distinguish the strong.
True experts would only reveal their domineering auras when displaying their strength. Normally, their auras would remain hidden. Their auras would appear to be as calm as the great ocean, unperturbed regardless of what was thrown at them. Others would find it hard to generate hostility against someone with such an aura.
Without a doubt, they noticed this about s.h.i.+ Feng.
s.h.i.+ Feng was a true expert. He was far beyond the ordinary experts they usually encountered.
"Big Brother Wind, who is this guy? Why haven't I heard of someone named Ye Feng in Zero Wing before?" Autumn Goose could not help but ask the s.h.i.+eld Warrior through a private chat as she evaluated s.h.i.+ Feng.
"I'm not sure, but based on our information on Zero Wing, aside from Black Flame, the Guild's experts are subpar at best. However, I expect no less from the upstart Guild that defeated the Star Alliance. The Guild has even constructed a Stable. Zero Wing's strength is truly unfathomable," Death Wind laughed. "It is good that Rain has joined such a Guild."
"Indeed. While we still have a headache over our Mounts, both Rain and Blue can obtain a Guild Mount of their own as soon as they reach Level 40," Autumn Goose responded enviously.
"What's so great about Guilds?" the Berserker Gunfire snorted. "How can they compare to the freedom we enjoy? We can move about G.o.d's Domain unrestricted. We also don't have to work under anyone. Weapons, equipment, rare Skills, or Mounts, whatever these large Guilds can get their hands on, we can, too!"
After they had joined G.o.d's Domain, Guild players had often sought them out to cause trouble. The various large Guilds occupied all of the valuable leveling areas. Hence, they had formed the Wind G.o.d's Spear. Not only had they fought the various large Guilds in the Dark Night Empire, but they had also made these Guilds suffer abundant losses. Pampered Guild players could not compare to the hards.h.i.+ps they faced.
Neither Death Wind nor Autumn Goose refuted Gunfire's words.
Their hatred of Guilds had been precisely the reason they had joined Wind G.o.d's Spear. Now, they would never bother with joining a Guild.
"Since everyone's here, let's head over to the Crystal Forest," Thoughtful Rain said as she invited s.h.i.+ Feng to their party. Moreover, she had even pa.s.sed the party's leaders.h.i.+p to s.h.i.+ Feng.
Gunfire was not pleased.
No matter how he looked at it, Death Wind should be the party leader as he was the most qualified for the role. Death Wind possessed a wealth of leaders.h.i.+p experience. He even had completed many advanced quests before. He was the best choice.
However, since Thoughtful Rain had invited them, it was up to her to choose the party's leader. Arguing against it would be inappropriate.
Following which, s.h.i.+ Feng and the others headed to the Teleportation Hall and teleported to the Crystal Forest.
The Crystal Forest was a small Level 40 to Level 50 map. However, the terrain was complex. The monsters here also had high Defense and HP. As a result, very few players were willing to level up here.
Taking a look at the quest details Thoughtful Rain had sent him, s.h.i.+ Feng looked towards the distant cave and said, "That should be the place."
Close to the cave entrance, over a dozen Level 43 Special Elite Crystal Giants roamed the area. Meanwhile, a ma.s.sive Icefire Cheetah slept a short distance from the cave. This Icefire Cheetah was a Level 44 Lord. It would slaughter an ordinary party easily.
Heh, let's watch you make a fool of yourself. Gunfire inwardly sneered as he watched s.h.i.+ Feng.
The Silver Legend quest was extremely difficult. Even with Death Wind leading them, their party would be hard-pressed to complete the quest. Hence, it was impossible for a pampered young master like s.h.i.+ Feng, who had only completed a few high-difficulty quests, to succeed here.
