Chapter 228: The New Path
After entering Diablo World, Fei went to the [Rogue Encampment] first and found Elena. Every time they met, they would take some time to work on their relationship. After that, they talked about Chambord.
After Fei constructed a small teleport portal in the [City of Heroes] in the back mountain. The people in the [Rogue Encampment] were able to go to Chambord for 4 hours a day and teach them and guide them on further constructions. Due to this, Fei was able to know exactly what was going on back in Chambord with the help of Elena and the others. After hearing that Chambord was developing according to the plan he drew out without him there, he was satisfied and relieved at the same time.
“According to plan, Uncle Lampard and the others had left Chambord some time ago. If they are on time, they should be here tomorrow. Then, all the participants from Chambord would be here.”
Fei thought to himself.
“Elena, starting tomorrow, you don’t need to go to Chambord to train the soldiers. Come with me to the campsite in St. Petersburg. The competition is about to start and I want you to be a part of it. The competition is a great way for you to practice and improve your skills. What is even better is that you can get a better understanding of the world!”
“Really? That’s great, Alexander.” Elena was delighted to hear Fei’s plan.
The past few weeks had been tough for Elena.
Although she was able to meet with Fei in the Diablo World at night, Fei was only able to stop at Diablo World for 4 hours. To Fei, these four hours were extremely important; he had to save every second of that time to kill monsters and improve his strength to be more prepared for the dangers in the real world. Therefore, he didn’t allocate any of his time to Elena.
To Elena, after they got through the last obstacle between them in the back mountain, their relationship had developed fast. Like newlyweds, they should spend every second with each other. After knowing that she would be able to stand beside Fei in the “Promising World”, she was very happy.
“Oh, right. I got some small gifts to give you.”
Fei bought a lot of small items at the night market. He gave some to Angela and Emma, and he didn’t forget the Valkyrie Elena who had been with him since the beginning. As Fei said that, he took out the items he prepared for the girl, and the girl was so surprised that her eyes teared up. She played with the items that Fei had for her in her hands as if they were the most valuable things in the world.
“Thank you, Alexander.” Happiness filled the girl’s heart.
The Valkyrie-like girl who wasn’t scared of terrifying demons carefully put these not-too-expensive items away and then kissed Fei on the cheek. An electric shock instantly went through the king’s heart.
Both Elena and Angela reacted in such a similar way when they received gifts; Fei felt a little guilty. After he came to this world, he had been thinking about how to get stronger and make Chambord Stronger; however, he had neglected the two most important girls in his life. He realized that he wasn’t paying enough attention to the two girls who loved him and he loved dearly.
After organized everything at the [Rogue Encampment], Elena used the teleport portal and got back to Chambord to pass the command from Fei to Brook and Bast. Fei on the other hand decided to go to [Lut Gholein] with his Barbarian Mode and complete the quest – [The Summoner].
At the moment, his Barbarian character needed a little bit more experience to go to level 40. With the best level 6 Magic Items he could purchase from the NPC and the level 7 Green Weapons, he was powerful as ever. On top of that, he was very used to using the brutal physical strength of Barbarian. After everything was combined, he had the strength of a mid-tier six-star warrior.
Fei still needed to learn how to use every technique he knew smoothly and effectively. Also, one issue was bothering him. Despite the fact that Barbarian was powerful and could easily wipe out weak opponents, he couldn’t stimulate his potential and power to deal explosive strikes like warriors in this world. His strength was very stable and couldn’t temporarily jump up in level and challenge warriors on another level.
For this reason, Fei didn’t enter the third big map in Diablo, but rather, he came to [Arcane Sanctuary]; a place that he had already passed. He was trying to use the high-level demons and monsters to help him get into the right zone for the battle tomorrow.
The cry of the swords resonated in the place.
Huge transparent fist marks smashed through the sky on top of [Arcane Sanctuary] with the Barbarian skill – [Bash].
Monsters died one after another.
The [Lightning Spires] and [Night Bats] emitted electric currents after they died, and apes like [Blunderbores] spurted out a ton of blood as they were chopped through by Fei. The whines and cries filled the entire sanctuary, and it looked like the end of the world.
Fei was battling.
He was trying to train his ability to switch between different types of skills and abilities.
Through this method, he was trying to add special effects from Barbarian’s skills into his self-created Sky-Frost Fist.
His level 39 Barbarian had learned quite a lot of skills under the following three categories: [Combat Skills], [Combat Masteries], and [War Cries].
Under [Combat Skills], he learned [Double Swing] which could attack two targets at the same time or attach the same target twice, and [Bash] which would instantly deal three times the damage after striking an opponent; there was also a stun effect where the opponent would be stunned for a short period of time. The skill [Concentration] allowed the barbarian to increase the damage as well as the accuracy of an attack, and [Leap] was being used by Fei as a movement type Qinggong kungfu technique where he could move and travel a lot faster.
Under [Combat Masteries], except [Sword Masteries], [Axe Masteries], and [Polearm Masteries], he learned [Iron Skin] which increased his defense and [Increased Speed] which added to the overall effectiveness of the barbarian character.
Under [War Cries], he learned [Howl], [Find Potion], [Shout], [Taunt], and [Battle Cry]. Each of these skills had magical effects, and Fei’s Sky-Frost Fist would definitely increase in power if he could merge the effects of these skills into it.
In the last four hours, Fei was trying to do everything he could.
This was something that he didn’t even imagine in his previous gaming life, but he was getting some progress. After fighting with the Golden Sun Knight, the number one young warrior of Hot Spring Gate Dillies, and the mysterious six star warrior assassin, he had accumulated a ton of experience. He was currently at a tipping point; if he could get through it, he would be able to find the perfect way to merge everything.
A new path for Fei to cultivate was slowly showing itself to Fei.
A crisp sound suddenly sounded beside Fei’s ear. Fei who was under the enlightenment was suddenly awakened from it. A white beam of light came down from the sky and enveloped him, and the comfortable sensation covered the wounds on his body. The fatigue and the pain he was feeling quickly disappeared.
At this critical time, his Barbarian Character leveled up again.
After four hours of killing, the last bit of experience points was gained, and Fei’s Barbarian Character increased from level 39 to level 40. He gained a few more attribute points and skills points; with this in hand, he was more confident in the fight tomorrow.
The next day.
After a night of snow, the sun was up in the sky and shining down on the ground.
The campsites, the Moro Mountains, the tall magic towers, and the Martial Saint Mountain behind the Emperor’s Palace were all covered with a light layer of silver silk. The scenery looked magical and beautiful.
In the middle of the campsite.
There was the number one sword-testing stage which was the largest: it was more than a hundred meters in diameter, and it looked like a Colosseum.
As soon as the sun came up from the horizon, a ton of people already started to rush to here and seat all around the stage. Today, the famous young king of Chambord was about to face off the older generation warrior – number seven Executive Knight Kelud at noon.
It was rumored that both master warriors were at least six-star warriors. A duel between warriors on this level hadn’t occurred in many years in Zenit.
