God’s Path: I Can Create A Lot Of Cheats Through Mutation - Chapter 60 - On The Rocky Highland
Chapter 60 – On The Rocky Highland
Very quickly, the people behind the initial group had all arrived.
“Hurry, hurry, hurry! Poison mist, poison mist!”
They immediately set up a dark purple poisonous fog belt around them as soon as they arrived.
[Poison Mist] was one of the initial 5 skills that could be chosen in the beginning.
In addition to continuously causing damage to the monsters, it could isolate sight and a certain degree of smell.
As long as they were placed around the area, it was equivalent to setting up a layer of cover. The monsters would not be able to see the players inside and would not attack them.
But of course, the effect of this poisonous mist was only helpful when the players were not moving. It will be harder to keep cover if they are constantly on the move.
When the dozen people who wanted to retreat saw that the poisonous mist had been filled up again, they looked at each other helplessly.
It didn’t take long for the new group to notice the frozen rock wall.
After being informed by the initial group,everybody is on the same page.
The group of people gathered together and began to discuss countermeasures.
“We’ve sacrificed more than 1,000 people to get here. Even if it’s lava, I’ll climb that wall!” In the middle of the crowd, a yellow-haired man shouted passionately.
“Then you go up!” Someone replied.
The yellow-haired man didn’t seem to expect an answer, and his face froze for a moment.
Just as he adjusted his emotions and was about to give another “speech”, Caesar pushed through the crowd and walked in.
As soon as he saw this “Big Boss,” the yellow-haired man immediately made way for him.
Everyone looked at Kaize.
He glanced at everyone with an expression as if he had stepped on dog poop.
Or, as if everyone was the dog poop themselves, to be more precise.
Everyone was speechless…?
“What’s wrong, bro?” Arhan, the wealthy merchant from the White Elephant Kingdom, walked to his side and patted his shoulder with a slight concern to his smile.
Without batting an eyelash, Kaizer removed the hand on his shoulder and forced a polite smile at the older man, “I’m fine.”
After shaking Arhan off, he faced the crowd and roared,”At this point, we have no way to retreat!”
“There are always more solutions than difficulties. We have to believe …”
[Remaining time from descent: 2 hours and 27 minutes]
Ling Yi sat on a two to three-meter-tall rock and looked at the Ice Queen, who was killing her way through the horde of monsters. He felt very relaxed.
The level 20 monsters on the Rocky Highlands were no match for the Ice Queen. She could kill a large number of them in seconds.
And his exp was rising rapidly!
[You’ve killed Stone Man (level 22), +5 exp]
[You’ve killed Rock Elemental (level 23), +6 exp]
The Rocky Highlands was on top of a huge cliff, and the top of the ridge was… not exactly a flat surface because it was filled with potholes everywhere.
There were only two kinds of monsters here.
One was the two-meter tall humanoid monster made of yellow stones, the Stone Man, and the other was the spinning Rock Elemental with a pair of dumbbell-like arms.
These two types of monsters also dropped quite a few good skills, but none of them caught Ling Yi’s eye.
Even with the mutated [Dream Sacred Star], he only had a few dozen more Stars Slots than players of the same level.
He still had to be careful when learning new skills.
After clearing this wave of creatures, which didn’t take that long, the Ice Queen flew back to Ling Yi’s side and stared at him.
Her pair of crystal white feet was directly in his line of sight, allowing him to see each of her small and dainty toes.
Ling Yi raised his head and looked at the beautiful woman in the blue dress who continued to stare at him. He smiled and said, “Thank you,”
Then, he stood up and patted the dirt off his pants, looking at the remaining time.
[Remaining time from descent: 2 hours and 26 minutes]
“There are still two more hours left.”
He had cleared the monsters in Rocky Highlands twice now.
About twenty minutes ago, the Ice Queen had already killed all the monsters here.
At that time, he didn’t want to go to other places to find other high-level monsters, so he waited for the next batch of re-spawned monsters here.
During the long wait, he got so bored and decided to give a hint to those people who were looking for him by releasing [Starfall].
He wanted to attract that group of people over.
And take the initiative to attack!
In the past, only the strong would find trouble with the weak.
He had never heard of a group of weaklings who dared to find trouble with the strong.
The reason why that group of people was brave enough to come and find him was because he had never beaten them up.
After he had wiped out a wave of them, would that group of people still come looking for him?
Even if there were, there would only be a few.
It had been more than ten minutes since he released [Starfall]. Except for some people who had turned into flying monsters or flew up on flying summoned beasts, he had not seen anyone else.
“That’s strange… This rock is only 50 meters tall. Even if the other players who can’t fly are slower, there should be at least one or two who can climb up.”
Ling Yi looked at the edge of the giant rock. The place was covered in a cold gray fog, but he couldn’t see if anyone had come up.
The fog was left behind by the Ice Queen when he attacked the players who had flown up. It lingered in the area for a long time and did not dissipate.
Since the monsters had not respawned yet, he still had plenty of time.
He lifted his feet and walked to the edge of the rock wall at a moderate pace.
When the Ice Queen went to fight, Ling Yi told her to use her shield and cast it on the highlands. The beautiful creature obediently summoned a pale white translucent shield.
When he used the [Eye of Truth] on the shield, he was surprised to find that he could see its effect.
[Holy Shield of Extreme Frost]: Summoned a shield that can resist any skill effect. The shield will break after being attacked three times; this shield can not be stacked and can only be used once on the same user in 1 minute.
This was an especially powerful defense skill.
As long as she could avoid most of the enemy’s attacks, it was equivalent to being immune to magic.
However, its ability to break after three attacks made it less effective in a battle against enemies of the same level.
It was a godly skill when not used in battle.
Because of this shield, Ling Yi dared to walk to the edge of the giant rock.
He wasn’t afraid of other people using long-range or perception skills because as long as the shield was still there, those skills wouldn’t be able to “see” him.
Of course, he could still be seen with the naked eye.
However, this place was filled with white fog, which reduced his visibility to less than four to five meters. He was still confident that he wouldn’t be seen through the mist.
Even if someone had already climbed up, the Ice Queen beside him would be able to find those “intruders” and freeze them. In fact, this was why he was so confident in not being seen through the white fog.
When he walked to the giant rock and looked down, he realized that the white fog was thicker than he had imagined.
He turned his head to look at the Ice Queen.
The creature immediately understood what he meant and waved her little hand.
In the blink of an eye, the white fog that had filled the rock wall dissipated greatly.
And… he could vaguely see some figure on the ground!
