Chapter 892 – Wolf Pack
“Congratulations to player Luo Tian for killing Chen San. You have gained 58 experience points, 15 yuan energy…”
“Congratulations to player Luo Tian for gaining 70 coins.”
“Congratulations to player Luo Tian for gaining 1 Yuan Foundation Pill.”
“Congratulations to player Luo Tian for gaining the Mountain River Fist. Do you wish to cultivate it?”
“Congratulations to player Luo Tian for +1 Sin point.”
“Congratulations to player Luo Tian for leveling up! You are currently at the Spirit Martial 2nd rank.”
“Whoa! A small loot explosion!” Luo Tian was a bit surprised since he didn’t expect Chen San would explode out with so much stuff. There was money, medicinal pills, and even a martial skill. How can he not be surprised?
This was comparable to a small boss!
But this was the first person Luo Tian killed in the Ancient World, so it was only right for some stuff to explode out.
The moment he leveled up to Spirit Martial 2nd rank, his yuan energy had recovered, and it increased by one hundred points. Luo Tian currently had 300 yuan energy, and his health also increased by a bit. Except… Luo Tian still felt tired after leveling up. When he was on the Tianxuan Continent, all his energy and stamina would recover like a brand new person.
Most likely, the level 2 system had changed this.
His base attributes were back to full, but his physical condition remained the same.
Luo Tian stood up from Chen San’s corpse and plopped down to the side while gasping for air. “This is the first time I realized how tiring killing a person is. But in order to level up, I guess killing others isn’t a bad option.”
“At least it’s quicker than killing a Mountain Wolf.”
Luo Tian then combed through the loot, “Since my martial skills have been sealed, I can only learn the ones from the Ancient World for now. Even though it’s considered garbage, it’s still a martial skill that can deal greater damage than a normal attack.”
“Congratulations to player Luo Tian for learning Mountain River Fist.”
A new martial skill appeared on his skill page.
Martial Skill: Mountain River Fist
Cooldown: 3 seconds
Consumption: 10 yuan energy
Description: The Mountain River Fist is a martial skill comprehended by an ancient overlord. It contains the power to shatter mountains and rivers. Level 1 allows the user to shatter stones. Level 2 allows… Level 5 can shatter the surrounding space… At the last great perfection realm, it is capable of shattering a mountain or destroying a river.
“Does a beginner’s skill need to be that awesome?” Luo Tian was a bit stunned by the description but didn’t care too much. No matter how powerful the great perfection realm was, he could only exert level 1 power from it.
Luo Tian picked up his beast trap and then glanced at the stream and found that the spiritual herb sapling didn’t have any more toxins.
“I’m at the Spirit Martial 2nd rank now, so I should have an easier time in killing a Mountain Wolf.”
“I need to level up faster. When Chen San yelled out ‘Hyena,’ it should be the name of that bounty hunter. That guy’s cultivation is most likely higher than Chen San, so I am not his match.” Luo Tian briefly analyzed his current situation before quickly leaving the area.
It was around noon right now, so Luo Tian managed to level up once in half a day.
Luo Tian was not very satisfied with this speed, but to other martial artists, this kind of speed was practically heaven-defying.
Chen San used ten years of his time to break through to the Spirit Martial 2nd rank, while Luo Tian used half a day. One can see how great the difference was.
Luo Tian returned to his previous cave to rest for a bit.
He then hid the beast trap in an obscure place. This wasn’t used to capture a wild beast but to prevent any sneak attacks.
Luo Tian smiled when he heard his stomach growl. “Back then, I didn’t feel any hunger, but now, I understand how uncomfortable it is to be hungry. I need to prepare some food for myself.”
After resting briefly, Luo Tian left the cave in order to find some food. Food was important in the Ancient World because one’s strength could not recover without it. It was extremely dangerous for one to be out of stamina in a mountain forest environment.
Luo Tian didn’t go back to the stream and went to the rear of the mountain.
There was a dark forest environment at the rear of the mountain that gave off a strange stench. It’s possible that this was a lair for the Mountain Wolves.
Luo Tian entered the forest in a careful manner.
He could only be cautious but unable to hide the aura from his body.
A hungry wolf pounced out between some bushes.
Luo Tian almost pissed his pants! The wolf attacked too quickly, and he didn’t even detect it!
But he was no longer at the Spirit Martial 1st rank but the 2nd rank. His strength, speed, and reaction time had been increased. The moment the Mountain Wolf pounced out, Luo Tian managed to dodge to the side and avoid the sneak attack.
At the same time, his right hand snaked out and grabbed onto the Mountain Wolf’s tail before giving a vicious tug.
The Mountain Wolf was slammed into the ground.
Luo Tian was a bit surprised at the reaction speed of his hand. “It’s truly different being in the Spirit Martial 2nd rank. If it was yesterday, I doubt I would even be able to dodge the sneak attack. Yet today, I was able to grab onto its tail at lightning speeds. Leveling up is truly a great thing.”
“Mountain River Fist!”
His yuan energy went down by ten points, and a power coursed through his arms before wrapping his fist with an ethereal energy. The ethereal energy around his fists couldn’t be compared to Chen San. Most likely, it was due to his level being still a bit too low.
“Awooo~…” The Mountain Wolf cried in pain when a punch landed on its abdomen.
Its body scrambled to get up in an attempt to run away.
There was no way Luo Tian would let it escape. His left fist smashed forth, “Just obediently lie down for me.”
The Mountain Wolf’s body slumped down.
Luo Tian threw another punch once more.
“Mountain River Fist!”
“Mountain River Fist!”
“Congratulations to player Luo Tian for killing a Mountain Wolf. You have gained…”
Luo Tian finally killed the Mountain Wolf after five minutes.
This kind of speed was ridiculously slow.
Luo Tian muttered to himself, “My killing speed is too slow, and I’m only dealing with a single Mountain Wolf. If several more pop up, the only thing I can do is run for my life.”
Strangely, the more you talk about something bad, the more likely it will happen.
After killing the Mountain Wolf, there was a commotion in the jungle of trees. Low howls and roars kept getting louder. It wasn’t just a few Mountain Wolves, but it sounded like an entire pack of Mountain Wolves were rushing toward Luo Tian!
“A whole pack of wolves?!”
Luo Tian didn’t even think and turned around to run. He didn’t bother with the Mountain Wolf’s corpse even though that was supposed to be his lunch and dinner. The only thing he could do right now was to run for his life!
A pack of wolves popped out of the forest and instantly divided up the dead Mountain Wolf.
The Mountain Wolves, who didn’t get a share of the meat, immediately darted off toward the smell of Luo Tian.
Luo Tian was running away like crazy!
At the same time, he was paying attention to the Mountain Wolves chasing after him. Once he realized there were only four of them, Luo Tian deliberately maintained a certain distance while saying to himself, “If I can get rid of one first, I think I should be able to take on three of them.”
After experiencing the fight with a Mountain Wolf, Luo Tian had roughly figured out the attack range they had. With his current health bar, Luo Tian figured he could take on three of them as long as no accidents happened.
Moreover, he had no other options apart from killing these Mountain Wolves. He needed to kill them in order to level up!
“Let’s use the kiting tactic!”
