Zhan Yue - Chapter 603: Jack Murphy
Bright Moon Pass.
After walking out of the teleportation formation, I raised my head. After the maintenance, things refreshed. Bright Moon Pass didn’t and it still looked like it was covered in holes. But this also proved that Dragon Region was too poor and it didn’t have money or people. It couldn’t repair this pass at all.
Stepped into the pass.
A bunch of undead cavalries and darkness archers nodded toward me. These were people that had guarded Bright Moon Pass from the start and they didn’t understand what went on before everything changed. Black Castle was wiped out and King of Darkness died. Senior Sister became the head of Dragon Region and Source Dragon was now in charge.
But in their eyes, I was still July Wildfire, the heir to the god hall, I was their hero.
“Everyone… Are you all okay?”
I looked at them.
The undead members were filled with thoughts, among them, one darkness catcher said, “200 thousand of us guarded the pass but now only 2569 people remain. Each day, Destroyers would hunt us now such that we don’t dare to head out…”
I saw how sour and sad they were and said, “That is okay, aren’t I here now? I came for the Destroyers. Defend the pass, I will deal with them.”
Hope appeared in their eyes. Right, when I was weaker, these archers and cavalries were stronger than me but as time went on, I became the legendary Darkness Shura and they were still the same. I could easily solo Destroyers and in their eyes they were nightmares.
“Open the gate for Sir!”
Along with the sound of ropes being pulled, an iron gate rose up slowly. I held my daggers and exited before the gate had risen up. A white cloak flashed behind me and I entered White Cloak State. I used Shifang Flame Spiral Eye and entered the forest before scouting carefully.
I looked into the sky and there was a moon above.
I suddenly thought about Heaven Hound. The moment the three lords descended, I released him. Who knew where it was and also what it would do? Would it continue to be a beast that swallowed all life, would it appear in front of me in a streak of intense light, no one knew?
At that moment, a blurry figure appeared ahead. I was a Destroyer. He knelt down on one knee like a piece of stone that was under the tree. The leaves covered him and his triangular-shaped destroyer sword was ahead of me.
Level 135 Quasi Legacy Grade Boss, a good choice for me to level and gain merit points from. Attack!

After using Soul Star Explosion, I used Dark Shadow Jump onto his face. I waved my daggers and used Gouge+Backstab. After sharp basic attacks, Attack Chasing damage appeared from my daggers. These were from Starlight and Spirit Blade. White Deer Dagger’s White Deer effect stacked the damage. At its highest, the Destroyer would take 50% damage. For solo modes, White Deer Dagger was a god weapon!
At the same time, one had to say Lin Xi’s understanding of the game was above mine. Before this, she told me about the effectiveness of Attack Chasing stats. Now, this totally proved what she said. After switching for the dagger, apart from the White Deer special effect, my damage was at least 40% higher than before.
The Destroyer attacked while cursing at me, “The will of darkness will never disappear. Even if you win me, you will never defeat my evil heart!”
“So much nonsense!”
I laughed while damaging. I even summoned White Bird and Orange Night to help. Good to give them some experience, they had to level in the future. The moment the two puppets appeared, my monster killing speed was much faster. The Destroyer, a Quasi Legacy Grade Boss, in just 4 minutes it was down to low health.
It cried out and the Destroyer fell.
Battle Notification: Congratulations, you killed Destroyer (Quasi Legacy Grade Boss), you obtained 9000 points!
“So… Such a win!”
My eyes were opened wide. A Destroyer gave 9000 points, that was so generous? With this rate, I would reach rank 8 right away. With +35% attack stats, wouldn’t that be overpowered!?
Not bad not bad, continue!
I lowered my head and saw that the Destroyer dropped a sword, this was the legendary Sword of Destruction. Unfortunately, it was a quest item and didn’t have stats. I tossed it into my bag. Continue!
Just like that, I continued to kill monsters in the forest outside Bright Moon Pass. The Destroyers were like mines placed all around. They tried to camouflage and they were really evil. Fortunately, I had Shifang Flame Spiral Eye and I could notice them before they noticed me. Just like that, a Destroyer’s ambush meant nothing to me.
Just like that, I continued until 12 and I killed 32 of them. In other words, I killed 10 every hour. This quest wasn’t easy. Even if I continued without eating and sleeping, I needed 10 hours to complete it. To exceed the requirements, I would have to put in more work.
Forget it, they gave many rewards too, slowly.
I went offline to eat.
We had chicken with mushrooms in the morning. I held my bowl and took a chicken claw before glancing at the few beauties behind me, “How is your training?”
Shen Mingxuan smiled, “With White Deer Bow, my damage is through the roof. A few more strong skills and I might exceed Ruyi!”
“Don’t think about it.”
I laughed, “Ruyi is a Dragon Mage and have a whole bunch of hidden skills. The chance of that happening is close to zero. But with your bow’s damage, you might be able to battle Lin Xi?”
Shen Mingxuan sent me curse words through the phone and her face flushed red, “No choice, let me tell you, the strongest now isn’t Ruyi but Lin Xi. Her White Deer mount is too strong. Her Ancient Totem skill can suppress both Ruyi and I…”
I laughed, “Then isn’t Lin Xi very proud now?”
Lin Xi smiled, “I even think that I can fight two Yanshi Bugong now.”
My mouth twitched. Seems like Lin Xi didn’t like Limitless at all. Although she would act like a pure little girl but in truth, Limitless treated us so badly before and even fought for Hercules Beetle Forest for us. So Lin Xi definitely wanted to beat up Yanshi Bugong for a long time, it was just that she didn’t have a chance.
“What about you?”
Lin Xi smiled, “How is Dragon Region’s rebuild? If it is smooth then would its scale be like Dragon City? During Destiny times, Dragon City was a holy land for everyone—”
“Not long later it will!”
I sucked in a deep breath, “Although it doesn’t have money now but it will in the future. After all, we have the Source White Dragon, just this alone means there are no problems.”
“Source White Dragon…”
Lin Xi smiled, “Honestly really strong. I told Master about it and she said to find a chance to greet him. Who knows if White Dragon would give her face…”
“Probably, after all, you are all light faction.”
“En, let’s eat.”
After lunch, I continued to spend time in the forest outside of Bright Moon Pass.
The quest today was just to hunt monsters and get my military rank up. As for level experience, no need to consider. After getting the Chaotic Grade first kill, I leveled 6 times. I was far ahead of Lin Xi, Feng Canghai and Dawn. This gap was enough for me to do nothing for a few days!
At that moment, I got a call from America. The number was on my contact list and it was a familiar name, Jack Murphy. A friend from MIT and my best friend in America. I picked it up—
“Hi, Lu!” He said hi to me in english.
“What is it?” I smiled and asked.
“I will arrive in Shanghai tomorrow morning.” He said politely, “To join a global forum. Do you want to come. Regarding recent matters, my teacher Professor Shawn posted something online.”
He smiled, “Maybe you have not came into contact with those weird things but many weird things happened across the globe… You should see some on tv. This time my teacher posted something regarding this. He thinks that they aren’t invading our world, we are also invading theirs.”
I frowned, “Jack you are talking about the World Wall right?”
“Right. Maybe you chinese call it that but we call it the edge.”
I was shocked. After graduating, I said goodbye to Jack and he focused on Celestial Mechanics, so he was an expert. I said solemnly, “When is the forums?”
“10 am Beijing time, are you interested?”
“Yes, help me get one.”
“No problem, my brother! I have many tickets, anyways no one will come to listen.”
He laughed, “I will send you the address and email you the ticket. You can come over directly.”
Seems like I had to play overnight today.
