The Trembling World Chapter 470
Chapter 470 – Cage
From now on, even when he gained a higher level, his wrist watch would keep the Stats hidden. The surprising part of the reward was being able to return normal weather conditions to Nin Jing City. If he was able to find a Neuroscience Research Facility, it could unlock more hidden potential. He could unleash magical spells! Everything so far had been very useful!
If there was a Scepter for Nin Jing City, then the other five surrounding islands, including Central Island, might also have a Scepter of Authority? What sort of magic would he awaken? Would it be something theoretical, like Comprehension, or would it be a fighting Qi, like Vindictive?
Forget it, it’s useless pondering on issues that aren’t helpful. Since he had no insight on where to find a Neuroscience Research Facility, it was pointless to overthink. Instead, Liu Gan decided to check on the last treasure item.
The set of black-colored claws had a threatening aura. Liu Gan equipped the claws on both his hands, and the instructions appeared in his head. By equipping the Champsosaurus Claws, they would increase his body strength and attack speed by 20%!
Liu Gan finally got the official name of the King Crocodile he had defeated. Seems like Zhao Nan Shan came quite close in naming it correctly. They named it Evil Dragon, which wasn’t too far off from Champsosaurus, in a sense that both were a form of reptile.
Aside from the damage output and agility benefits of equipping the claw, there was another feature. Once Liu Gan’s Mist Armor was shattered during a Player versus Player situation, he could undergo a limited time secondary transformation. He can transform into the form of a Champsosaurus for one minute.
However, taking the form of the Champsosaurus has its restrictions. During the transformation phase, it could only be used to attack humans. Attacking anything other than humans, like zombies or mutated variants, would end the transformation immediately, and it would disappear in smoke like it was an illusion all along.
“These claws are the best gift so far! A perfect PVP item! I can fight without care! Once my defense is broken, I can transform into a Champsosaurus and crush them underneath the weight of my foot!” Liu Gan started daydreaming about what it would be like when he transformed.
A minute of transformation was too short. If it had a longer duration, that would be fantastic. The restriction of limiting it to only humans was a slight disappointment. Otherwise he would’ve flattened the zombie-filled city in a few moves.
Disregarding that slight disappointment, the 20% gain in strength and agility would give him a level advantage over other players. With the Scepter in his care, he can gain another level of Stat advantage. With a two-level advantage over his peers, he shouldn’t have any problem taking them head on.
Even if he met a competitor who was overpowering, he could transform into the Crocodile Form and defeat them. With a one minute turnaround time, he was confident in overturning the battle.
“Congratulations, Lord Liu!”
“Mighty Lord Liu!”
The members closed in to congratulate Liu Gan on his success. This dungeon instance was the combined effort of all of them, and everyone walked out having gained something from it. They would have felt terrible if Liu Gan was the only one who didn’t gain anything from this time-consuming expedition.
With Liu Gan’s strength raised to new heights, he was the strongest player under level 15. Even level 16 players wouldn’t be his opponent. Players that followed by his side felt proud to have a leader they could depend on.
With the Wall of Malice fading away from existence, the expedition group walked out through the front gates of Moonlight Gulf Theme Park. The first thing they saw was Cai Hao Chen’s face. Everyone was surprised to see him.
From the moment Cai Hao Chen had left the Theme Park through the side exit, he had handed the letter over to Yin He, but didn’t return back to the Village. He sat outside waiting for any sign of Liu Gan’s group. After waiting for weeks, he started to wonder if the group had died within the dungeon instance.
Fighting alongside them through life and death situations, Cai Hao Chen had friends inside the dungeon instance, he felt heart-aching pain when he wondered if they died.
With the death toll being 1, Sun Chao, everyone else had remained unharmed. Cai Hao Chen ran up to everyone with a hug and started questioning them about everything that had taken place when he was gone.
“The King Crocodile had been killed! The dungeon instance has been beaten! The wall of malice disappeared, too! That’s how we could walk out through the front gates!” Stratos started with the good news.
“Really? The King Crocodile was defeated? Lord Liu is really powerful!” Cai Hao Chen couldn’t imagine how Liu Gan could’ve accomplished the impossible.
With the King Crocodile killed, the dungeon instance was conquered. From that point on, whenever anyone entered through the front gates of Moonlight Gulf Theme Park, they wouldn’t be transferred into the dungeon.
Right as Liu Gan was about to ask Cai Hao Chen for the whereabouts of Yin He and NaNa, he was pounced on by NaNa. She came running out from a hidden corner and started licking Liu Gan’s face.
Soon after, Yin He appeared, chasing after NaNa.
Now that she has seen Liu Gan return safely, Yin He could finally smile. She greeted Liu Gan with open arms.
“I’m sorry that I made you worry!” Liu Gan felt Yin He’s cheeks as he apologized. He hadn’t thought that he would remain in the dungeon instance that long. It had been around two months since they had last met!
“I wasn’t worried, I know you are strong so you would come back alive,” Lin He replied back to him.
Liu Gan was speechless, continuing to hold Yin He in his embrace.
“Lord Liu and vice-leader He are so enviable!” Ana stared at the scene with admiration.
“We can be like that, too. We would also look just as happy as they are!” Stratos started to flirt with Ana.
“Vulgar!” Ana kicked Stratos in the rear.
“Ana, do you have some sort of ability? How could you kick me from behind when I’m standing in front of you?” Stratos got up from the ground.
“My secret skill is Unparalleled Buttocks Kick!” Ana raised her foot up.
“HELP!” Stratos started scurrying away.
Meanwhile ,in the Beginner Village…
During Liu Gan’s absence, Cao Yi had taken on the position as the new leader.
However, this twisted man had no intentions of running the village properly. He wanted the entire village to be a cage, his personal playground. He wouldn’t allow anyone to leave.
Every week, Cao Yi would pick twenty to fifty villagers, escorted by his lackeys wearing black uniform. Strangely, the lackeys never spoke a word, they had their faces covered and only their eyes were showing. The villagers would never be seen again after being escorted away. At this point, three hundred villagers escorted away.
This included Zhang Sheng Li, Martial Thunder, Zhao Meng, Xue Jian, and the other leaders.
Any rebel forces were met with fierce oppression. Cao Yi would break their arms and legs. The villagers knew that Cao Yi was over level 14, they knew they couldn’t fight back. In the Trembling World, every level higher meant it was met with an overwhelming power. Cao Yi was at least 4 levels higher than their strongest ally. Even if everyone combined forces in the village, they weren’t Cao Yi’s opponent!
