Chapter 249: A Surprising Find
Fei instantly got more cautious. He knew that these magic arrays were probably placed by the high-level mages of Zenit.
Fei switched to Sorceress Mode and slowly walked up to where one of the magic arrays was placed. He then closed his eyes and tried to sense the magic elements in the air.
Under the buff from the level 7 Green Set Item [Arcane’s Tricks], his Sorceress Character was now level 39, and this character was almost as powerful as the level 40 Barbarian. Under this mode, Fei’s sensitivity to the Fire, Water, and Lightning elements were a lot greater than the mage genius in this world. Especially after the obscene old man Cane had discovered the similarities and differences between the magic of the real world and Diablo World, Fei’s understandings about Magic Arrays was on the level of semi-professionals. After all, he learned a lot from Akara and Cane.
With the high sensitivity and semi-professional level understanding, Fei was able to slowly draw out the Fire Elemental Magic Array in his head after feeling out how the array was created.
“This is a Six-Star Fire Elemental Defensive Magic Array…… there is…… forty-five magic pathings……Eh? Wait, there are forty-seven. Such an advanced technique. I almost got tricked by it!”
Fei got more surprised as he observed the array closer. The person who created this array was on another level.
Although Fei was able to understand the array, he was unable to re-create the same array with his current skills.
Understanding and creating were two completely separate things.
“……Eh, there are more arrays. One…… two…… five…… ten…… There are more than fifteen arrays of different varieties? They completely protected the scene…… Such a big investment. To complete all of these arrays, there need to be more than six mages who are at least six-stars, and a lot of magic gems are required. Eh? Why does the empire want to cover this place up? Are they scared that someone might discover something?”
Fei instantly thought of a lot of things.
“Are there secrets in this debris?” He thought.
Fei felt like he needed to go into the battlefield to discover more.
It was fortunate that there weren’t more defensive tactics put in place. It seemed like the person who was in charge of guarding this place thought it was safe enough with these magic arrays and didn’t leave any warriors or mages behind. On top of that, there were a lot of demon beasts in Moro Mountains, so they would sometimes trigger the magic arrays. Therefore, no one came to check it out after Fei triggered one of them.
After Fei circled around the battlefield carefully, he found the weakest link between these magic arrays. Fei spent more than twenty minutes to sense this arrays and break it down in his head. He carefully examined every magic pathing…… Finally, his eyes shone as he found a way to avoid triggering the array.
The theory was simple.
The existence of Magic Arrays to Fei were complicated electrical circuits. Every single pathing was like a wire, and they together formed a complex system. But If Fei was able to dodge these “electrical wires” and avoid getting shocked, he would be able to get through them. To mages, detecting and dodging all the magic pathings was very difficult, but it wasn’t impossible for Fei who could activate Sorceress Mode as long as the “wires” weren’t dense.
The Six-Star Water Elemental Array – [Ice’s Anger] was just simple enough for Fei to get through.
Fei calmed himself down, adjusted his mentality, and got into the zone. He then slowly tiptoed forward like a field engineer who was trying to get around the land mines on the ground. He was walking in a path that was strange and random; he looked like a man who was drunk. He would walk forward for a step, take three leaps back, turn left, jump around……
If the mage who set up this array was seeing this, he or she would be shocked.
Fei’s movement and timing perfectly avoid every magic pathing at the right moments. If he was any faster or slower, or if he moved at the wrong angle, he would trigger the entire array.
It was a dance on the blades.
It was like having an intimate moment with the Grim Reaper.
Finally, Fei got through this magic array in about one hour.
In the hour, Fei was able to accurately dodge the complicated and dangerous magic pathings completely; it was a new record on Azeroth Continent. After all, no one had done anything like this before.
Fei sat on the ground as he breathed heavily. Sweat covered his forehead as if he just got out of the water. He was so tired that his head felt like it was getting poked by numerous needles whenever he used his brain.
Fei felt more tiring than after battling the four Executive Knights.
In the last 60 minutes, Fei had to concentrate and make sure that his bodily coordination was on point….. Keeping his body under this high tension for an hour was more demanding than battling an army of soldiers for a month. If Fei’s skills didn’t come from Diablo World, he probably couldn’t even last for ten minutes.
The exhaustion in terms of spiritual energy made Fei really sleepy. He felt like his limited spiritual energy was completely used.
“Need to recover for a moment!” After chugging down a bottle of Healing Potion and a bottle of Mana Potion, Fei didn’t sense any recovery of his spiritual energy. Instead, Fei sat down on the ground and used the methods in the book that Akara gave him today to enhance his spiritual energy.
Spiritual energy was a really interesting subject.
In line with his memory from the previous life, the Sorceress character’s ability only related to the mana. Fei’s spiritual energy didn’t increase at all since he came to Azeroth Continent. Because of that, he was only able to stay in Diablo World for four hours every day. After Fei got the purple skill scroll from the ancestors of Rogue Encampment, he was able to make some progression despite the slow speed. With hard work and consistency, Fei felt like one day, he could be able to live in Diablo World for 24 hours if he wanted to.
After twenty minutes.
Fei opened his eyes and exhaled. All of his fatigue went away.
“Eh, feeling a lot better…… Hugh?” Fei was a little surprised. He found that his spiritual energy actually increased quite a bit! His level of 200 increased to 210 after this meditation…… The progress he made in the 20 minutes was far beyond the all the progress he made in Rogue Encampment.
He was only able to come up with one explanation – He used all of his spiritual energy when he was getting through the magic array; he was depleted of all of the energy. Under this extremely depleted zone, he was able to make more progress when using the methods from the purple skill scroll.
After thinking about that, Fei’s eyes shone.
He realized that this was a great tactic, and he could be able to skyrocket his spiritual energy. This way, he would be able to stay in Diablo World for longer, and he would be able to increase his strength even faster! It seemed like his goal of becoming the Moon-Class Elite Warrior could be achieved.
The discovery came unexpectedly.
Fei slowly calmed himself down after this great finding.
He switched to Barbarian Mode and started to carefully go around the battleground.
Terrifying residual power was still surging in the air; it was the aftershock of the two warriors. These residual energies slowly shifted around the area like waves in an ocean…… Fei quickly made a few discoveries – out of the two distinct warrior power, one of them belonged to the mysterious assassin who tried to kill him.
