Chapter 778 – Heart of Lava
They woke up!
The nearby six Lava Beasts had woken up.
Based on his experience with games in his past life, a player should only draw aggro when they get close to the monster. But somehow, Jingang’s voice woke them up. What’s up with that?
Black lines appeared on Luo Tian’s forehead as he had thoughts of dying. He immediately advised the others: “No one else make any loud noise. It looks like these demonic beasts will wake up due to that. Jingang, I’m especially talking to you.”
“Oh, I will pay attention next time. “Jingang scratched his head. When he saw the six Lava Beasts jump toward Luo Tian, he couldn’t help screaming out: “Boss, watch out!”
Another two Lava Beasts had woken up not far away.
Luo Tian became dumbstruck.
Jingang couldn’t resist wanting to say something more but Murong Bai used his hand to cover up his mouth. He was really afraid that if Jingang yelled out once more, all the surrounding Lava Beasts would wake up. At that time, their entire group will be beaten into a pile of meat patties.
At this moment, Luo Tian changed his strategy and said: “There are too many demonic beasts so let’s change it up. Eggy, hold back seven of those Lava Beasts. Everyone else, focus your firepower on a single one. Any questions?”
Eggy wanted to howl out loud in response but his mouth clamped back down when he saw Luo Tian’s glare. He could only softly respond: “No problem.”
Immediately after, Eggy leaped into the air and blocked in front of six Lava Beasts.
Luo Tian summoned out his Annihilate and shouted: “Critical Slash!”
The blade landed on the body of a certain Lava Beast. That Lava Beast immediately went crazy and pounced toward Luo Tian. Its huge fist shattered the void as it swung with all ferocity.
“Bang~, bang~, bang~…”
Eggy suffered a series of attacks in the air before he was slapped back down to the ground.
Luo Tian frowned before saying: “Everyone attack!”
“Eggy, can you handle it?”
Eggy smiled, “Boss, don’t worry, this one can still take it.”
Eggy was attacked just as he was talking.
It was fortunate he was the descendant of a Dragon God or else normal people wouldn’t be able to hold on anymore.
“Dragon Blood Puppet!”
“Come out for me!”
Big Mustache’s hands were so fast that they became a blur. In less than a second, he refined a puppet made with the Dragon God’s essence blood. The puppet was similar to a ferocious beast as it immediately pounced out to its target.
“Imperial Sword Technique!”
Murong Bai made a thought and his White Feather Sword flew out.
Jingang just charged forward with his mouth tightly clamped shut. He was afraid that he would make another sound and draw more demonic beasts over. Only when he was next to a Lava Beast did his arm pull back while softly shouting: “Heavy Thunder!”
“The strength of ten million juns!”
“Left punch, right punch, left punch, right punch…”
Black Widow smiled charmingly before using her Spirit Dragon Whip to entangle a Lava Beast, “Dance of the Nine Heavens, Bind!”
Leng Hanshuang flew forward while stabbing out her Ice Sword.
All those combined attacks had one thing in common – they were all physical attacks based on gaming terms.
Luo Tian focused his attention on the numbers floating above the heads of the Lava Beasts. “It’s not working, the physical defense of these guys is too tough. The damage we’re doing is only in the single digits, so we’re basically tickling them with their ten million plus health bar.”
“Change of strategy!”
Luo Tian made an immediate decision and said: “Black Widow, it’s time to display your abilities and release your Scorpion King’s toxin. After living in the Desert of Death for so many years, you should have collected a lot of poison, right? It’s time to release it all.”
“Jingang, you take over and lessen Eggy’s burden.”
“Big Mustache, use your puppet to stall for time.”
“Use your profound energy on your attacks and use all your martial skills.”
Luo Tian spoke very quickly and everyone’s reaction was very quick as well. In just a second, everyone immediately took the corresponding actions.
Black Widow gave an evil charming smile, “Sire, you are truly very smart. Today, I will let you all see how strong my poison is.”
Black Widow’s right hand, which was holding onto the Spirit Dragon Whip, started turning black. Lines of black poison started crawling up the whip and toward the Lava Beast’s body like a line of crawling ants. In less than a few seconds, the Lava Beast’s body that was touched by the whip started to turn black.
Red numbers started floating above their heads.
The depletion rate was very fast.
Luo Tian grinned, “As expected… The magic defense of these demonic beasts is basically zero. If that’s the case…”
“Eggy, let them come over!”
“Black Widow, poison all of them.”
“Big Mustache, use your puppets to protect Black Widow. Eggy, don’t let their attacks land on us.”
Their formation changed.
Eggy and Jingang immediately retreated and those Lava Beasts charged forward like crazy. Their actions were single-minded and their attacks were very simple. They would only use their fists to punch and smash. There was basically no intelligence behind these demonic beasts.
These must be the lowest ranked demonic beasts from another world. Only rank 1 demonic beasts would not show any intelligence behind their actions.
“Boss, can you do it?”
“Just take care of yourselves and don’t worry about me.”
Luo Tian grinned before shouting: “Magma Fire, Burning Heaven Lava!”
Luo Tian’s figure instantly turned into hot lava. A large amount of lava blasted out and landed on eight Lava Beasts. The lava instantly cooled down and condensed into a shell. Black Widow immediately released her poison as Luo Tian landed on top of the head of one of them.
“Myriad Thunder Roar!”
“Descend for me!”
Thunder and lightning instantly appeared in the sky before the lightning streaked downward like beams of light.
The Lava Beasts were struggling and screaming in pain. Floating above their heads was a string of red numbers that were only visible to Luo Tian. The numbers were quite long but these demonic beasts simply had too much health, so using Myriad Thunder Roar a single time wasn’t able to instantly kill them.
“Myriad Thunder Roar!”
“Myriad Thunder Roar!”
“Myriad Thunder Roar!”
Lightning was bombarding the area like crazy without any restraint.
“Congratulations to player Luo Tian for killing a Lava Beast. You have gained 100,000 experience points, 100,000 profound energy…”
“Congratulations to player Luo Tian for gaining a Heart of Lava.”
“What the hell?!”
“Why are the experience points so little?!”
Luo Tian’s mind sank. There were only a hundred thousand experience points and it was simply too little when you compare it to the number of points he needed to level up. But the Tianxuan Continent no longer had any demonic beasts that could give him what he needed so he had no other choice but to continue killing.
A series of seven more alert tones sounded off.
There was only one single Lava Beast left and it was already on its last breath.
Luo Tian descended from the air and stopped Jingang who was about to rush forward. “There’s no need to be in a hurry. We have to find this guy’s weakness first or else there’s no way we can complete this mission of mine in ten days.”
Luo Tian stepped forward and muttered to himself: “The heart of lava… could their hearts by their weakness?”
Immediately after, Luo Tian’s fist smashed towards the area where the Lava Beast’s heart was.
