Let Me Game in Peace - Chapter 20

Chapter 20

Upon seeing the trio’s expression, Zhou Wen knew that his persuasion was completely useless .

He did have the intention to stay behind, ignoring whatever the trio might encounter . However, his results would be severely impacted if they were to die inside . He might even be removed from the list of candidates from the top schools .

Also, Yu Qiubai had introduced him, so he had the responsibility to help Li Xuan attain good results . Although Li Xuan didn’t think so, Zhou Wen didn’t wish to see Li Xuan sending himself to his death . That would affect Yu Qiubai’s reputation and it was highly likely that the Li family would blame it on Yu Qiubai .

Let’s hope they don’t venture too deep . As long as they don’t approach the area where the Skeleton General is, there shouldn’t be much of a problem .  Zhou Wen thought without saying another word as he followed Li Xuan and company .

Seeing Zhou Wen silent, Xu Miantu imagined that it was because Zhou Wen didn’t dare be alone . He scoffed in contempt . “When one’s a burden, one should realize that . Just follow us obediently and cut the nonsense . ”

Zhou Wen didn’t have the interest or time to bother with him . Taking out his phone, he secretly dripped a drop of blood before entering the Ancient Imperial City game dungeon .

He wanted to venture ahead to test the Skeleton General’s strength . It was best if he could find a way to kill him, and even if he failed, he could at least find a way to ensure his survival in front of him .

After all, Jiang Hao and Xu Miantu were taking point, killing all the Skeleton Soldiers that rushed at them . There was nothing Zhou Wen needed to do .

The danger was nonexistent . Even if a Skeleton Soldier were to rush at him, he could easily finish it off with his present strength .

Zhou Wen kept walking behind, unafraid that they would see his screen since they were unlikely to recognize it .

The game interface followed a cartoon style, making it very disparate from real life . The typical person wouldn’t make the connection .

Li Xuan was like Zhou Wen; he had nothing to do . When he saw Zhou Wen taking out his phone to game in such an area, he quipped, “You are really a gaming addict . You still feel like gaming in here?”

“It’s not like I have anything else to do, so I’m just playing games to kill time,” Zhou Wen replied without looking up . His eyes were peeled to the screen as he controlled the blood-colored avatar, blazing a trail while riding the Mutated Vigor Ant .

The ordinary Skeleton Soldiers were unable to block the Mutated Vigor Ant at all . Their bodies scattered from the impact and they weren’t as fast as it was .

Zhou Wen also couldn’t be bothered to kill them . All he wanted was to rush to the spot where the Skeleton General was .

“That’s right . I shall game as well,” Li Xuan said as he took out his phone . He tapped on the screen; the game he played a mystery .

Li Xuan’s gaming could be ignored, but Zhou Wen was also playing . This pissed off Xu Miantu .

“What the hell? Is this the number one genius of Guide High School? He’s like a gaming nerd,” Xu Miantu cursed under his breath in great displeasure .

Although Xu Miantu and Jiang Hao were powerful, they were still made up of flesh and blood . They were still susceptible to fatigue and injury; therefore, when they encountered relatively large hordes of Skeleton Soldiers, they had to be very careful . This slowed down the speed of their advancement .

As for Zhou Wen, he was charging the entire way in-game . His rate of progress was far faster than their progress in real life . In just half an hour, he arrived at the spot where he had met the skeleton horse-riding Skeleton General .

Like the last time, that fellow immediately charged when it saw the blood-colored avatar and Mutated Vigor Ant . Its speed was terrifying, in no way something Zhou Wen and the Mutated Vigor Ant could compare with .

This time, Zhou Wen was fully focused . He was thinking of ways to deal with the spear attacks, but when he saw the bone spear thrusting at him, he failed to dodge it . He didn’t have the opportunity to extend his hand to block the attack before being penetrated in the chest .

That was fast . This spear attack must be some type of Primordial Energy Skill .  Zhou Wen could already confirm that the spear attack was a Primordial Energy Skill; otherwise, it was impossible that he had failed to even react .

A speed-type Primordial Energy Skill? This fellow is more difficult than the Silver-Winged Flying Ant . However, that Silver-Winged Flying Ant apparently never used Primordial Energy Skills .  As Zhou Wen pondered over the matter, he revived the blood-colored avatar, rode the Mutated Vigor Ant, and charged into the depths of Ancient Imperial City .

As Zhou Wen rushed over, he carefully recalled the details of his previous two deaths . He hoped to find a strategy to deal with the Skeleton General by studying the details .

By doing so, he came up with a few possibilities . However, their viability needed him to test them out to know if they worked .

When he saw the Skeleton General charge at him again, Zhou Wen deliberately dodged the skeleton horse’s direct charge . He wanted to know if the Primordial Energy Skill was only capable of a frontal thrust .

The facts proved that he was wrong . When the blood-colored avatar dodged to the side of the skeleton horse under Zhou Wen’s control, the bone spear tip swept a crescent arc like a stream of light, instantly decapitating the blood-colored avatar’s head . It was no doubt an instant kill .

Making mistakes wasn’t a terrifying problem . What was terrifying was the lack of opportunity to amend strategies . However, the mysterious phone was what gave Zhou Wen this opportunity for amendments .

His Primordial Energy Skill is not only a thrust, but it’s also capable of side cleaving . This makes it difficult .  Zhou Wen wasn’t discouraged; instead, he secretly dripped another drop of blood on the phone’s screen .

Perhaps it was because of his severe loss of blood in the past month or so, Zhou Wen felt a little giddy .

I need to think of means to replenish my blood in the future . If this continues, I might really end up dying from anemia .  Zhou Wen felt a slight headache, but he couldn’t think of a good solution .

With the first experiment failing, all Zhou Wen could do was switch methods . Thankfully, he was only making attempts in-game . If it happened in real life, there was no way he would do something beyond his means . After all, he only had one life . He couldn’t just bet on it .

While Zhou Wen made his attempts, Xu Miantu and company were continuing their push forward .

The dimensional creatures in the dimensional zone were nearly endless . As the zone was connected to dimensional rifts, even if the creatures were wiped out, the area would be occupied again by new creatures . There was no way of killing them all .

However, the dimensional rifts weren’t stable . Pan-dimensional creatures didn’t appear at random, so after clearing an area, there wouldn’t be any Skeleton Soldiers appearing for a short period of time . Xu Miantu and company’s advancement was still pretty good .

The chances of Skeleton Soldiers producing dimensional crystals were quite small, with one Strength Crystal being dug out from the Skeleton Soldiers’ bodies every two to three hundred Skeleton Soldiers .

Unfortunately, this wasn’t a game . They could only roughly identify the Strength Crystals, but had no idea what their values were .

The Strength Crystal was naturally Li Xuan’s . In fact, as long as he had one, he would be first in the team .

“We’ve already hunted enough Skeleton Soldiers . We are very far from the determined region of the test . We need to rush back before the end . Can we not continue proceeding forward?” Upon noticing that they were approaching the Skeleton General’s region, Zhou Wen said once again to Li Xuan .
