Chapter 321: Blood Dagger and His Revenge

Translator: Halcyon Translations Editor: Halcyon Translations
The group match consisted of a Thief, Mage and Priest playing against a team of Warrior, Priest and

Paladin.

Unlike Glory Capital, Peerless City didn’t make a comeback in the group match. However, it wasn’t an easy

victory for Drizzle Court either – they almost lost the match.

Fortunately, Water Fairy was using Lu Li’s dagger. At the most critical moment of the match, she managed

to escape from the cornered situation and saved her life.

In the Shadow Cup this season, Peerless City had come in at fourth place, while Drizzle Court was placed

third.

The time for the final match had now arrived.

The final round in this season of the Shadow Cup was quite strange.

One of the teams in the finals had been gone for three years, and were now aiming to make a comeback.

On the other hand, the Xin Xin Mercenary Group was renowned as a bug in the game.

However, their entrance into the finals has truly brought them popularity. PVE players admired Lu Li for the

First Clears that he took and at the same time, their competition success earned them respect from the PVP

players.

Right now, countless people were keenly awaiting the outcome.

They were also expectantly waiting for Lu Li’s guild to form.

Thousands of people had planned to apply for the guild as soon as it was formed.

As such, Lu Li’s guild had a much stronger start compared to the other guilds.

The leaders of the other big guilds sat in the bar, while they held back their tears in memories of the ‘good

old days’ and complained about the loyalty of the average players.

Wasn’t it just a few First Clears?

Wasn’t it just the final round of Shadow Cup?

What was so amazing it about all?

It was quite an achievement for them to have entered the final round, and the big guilds were all very

envious of this.

There was nothing they could do to bring them down anymore; they were already in the finals now.

From another perspective, a guild entering the finals was less embarrassing than a mercenary group doing

it.

Not to mention, the formation of Lu Li’s guild was unstoppable.

Which guild had so much discussion when it was first formed?

There was no doubt that as long as Lu Li’s guild caught up in levels, there would be a constant stream of

people applying for it.

Some guilds who were on bad terms with Lu Li, such as the Imperial Secret Service, had already joined

together for a discussion about what to do with this situation.

Were there any possible ways to slow down his development?

After a lot of thought, it seemed like none of the usual tactics would work. Lu Li was too popular!

If...

If the Xin Xin Mercenary Group really won the championship, the forces in the gaming industry would really

start to change.

They also thought about the information that had leaked out from Drizzle Court and Peerless City. It

seemed as though Lu Li and Water Fairy had shared equipment.

This dirty couple!

All those who heard about this information were angry, but in reality, they were filled with fear.

Water Fairy’s gear was simply too good.

Could Glory Capital emerge victorious?

The crowd didn’t need to wait for long; the Shadow Cup had always been known for its punctuality. After

the battle between Drizzle Court and Peerless City, the curtain was raised for the Finals.

Before the match began, there was a short interview.

The reporter kept his questions short and asked Lu Li first, "It must be your first time attending a game

competition like this, right?"

Many people questioned if Lu Li was an expert gamer in disguise. This wasn’t just an impossible assumption

– perhaps he was an expert gamer who hadn’t played for many years, or who had plastic surgery.

"It’s my first time participating in a competition like this," Lu Li answered honestly.

"How do you feel about the competition this time?"

"Very remarkable. Hmm, the prize money is very rewarding too," Lu Li said.

"Blood Dagger wants to have a single match against you. Will you accept his challenge?"

"Maybe." Lu Li glanced at the others who also sat in this room.

Opposite to him was the Priest, White Westhill, who kept his head down like a meditating monk. Blood

Dagger stared at Lu Li, with the lust for battle written all over his face, while Sorrowless remained

mysterious.

It seemed as though Sorrowless had already found out who assassinated him. This was quite normal –

there were many in the Alliance faction who knew about what had happened. One of them must have

given away the information. With the amount of power that Glory Capital wielded, there was no way that

they would be kept in the dark about this.

Lu Li wasn’t afraid either; he pulled up the corner of his lips and smiled in return.

The reporter continued to ask more questions; there was a lot of questions for the two teams that had

made it into the finals.

Although there were six players in the room, none of them were the talkative type. As such, the interview

was extremely one-sided – the contestants only gave responses based on the questions they were asked.

Sometimes, they didn’t even bother answering at all. The reporter was obviously relieved when the

interview finally ended and escaped from the room without even looking back.

Lu Li took up the challenge in the single match.

It was a duel between two Thieves.

Blood Dagger was very cautious; he had even changed his equipment. The guild had managed to find a few

equips for him that buffed his Stealth ability.

Unfortunately, the preparation was rushed - none of these equips had extraordinary attributes, so there

was no guarantee that he wouldn’t be detected by Lu Li.

By now, everyone knew that the Xin Xin Mercenary Group was working together with Drizzle Court. Water

Fairy had exchanged some of her gear with Lu Li and had successfully won against Peerless City. There was

no doubt that Lu Li would have some of Water Fairy’s gear on him as well.

Water Fairy’s detection abilities were truly terrifying; Blood Dagger had to swap out two of his equips to

decrease his chance of being caught.

But was that really enough to protect him?

The Sap that landed on his head was a clear indication that he was too naive.

Blood Dagger wasn’t impressed; he should’ve kept onto his old equipment. The extra Stealth attributes did

nothing for him.

Lu Li didn’t hold back all; he found his chance to attack and so, he did.

Blood Dagger used Gale Steps to block the spell as he turned around to attack Lu Li.

Lu Li’s reaction wasn’t any slower than his. There was no need for Lu Li to force a fight, so he teleported a

dozen yards away and went into Stealth with Shadowmeld.

Both of them were in Stealth again and it seemed as though nothing had changed from the start, except for

the fact that Blood Dagger had used his Gale Steps. However, anyone with a sharp eye could tell that he

was at a disadvantage.

The comeback was fast – it was Blood Dagger who caught Lu Li the second time.

The necklace from Water Fairy was already on cooldown. Under the circumstance where they both had

gear to increase their Stealth and there weren’t any major difference between them, the deciding factor

would be their positioning, technique and luck.

Lu Li didn’t hesitate; he used Gale Steps too.

Seeing that Lu Li had used Gale Steps without even thinking twice, Blood Dagger suddenly felt sympathetic

towards him – they were the same type of player.

There was no way that an average player would use their skills so easily. Carelessly using a skill like Gale

Steps would mean that they had lost their advantage.

None of them really thought too deeply about this though – once they died, their skills would become

pointless as well.

Lu Li didn’t allow Blood Dagger to crowd-control him. Although Blood Dagger didn’t use Kidney Strike in the

group matches or in his fight against Water Fairy, Lu Li knew that he definitely had the skill and was most

likely planning to use it as his trump card.

After he used Gale Steps, Lu Li entered an invincible state.

Blood Dagger quickly vanished. If he didn’t use Vanish, Lu Li would definitely run over and catch him.

After he lost Blood Dagger, Lu Li wasn’t in a rush, but slowly searched for the position of his opponent.

Perhaps the Goddess of Luck favored Blood Dagger; he still struck first in their third encounter, but Lu Li

had backup plans as well. He activated the special effect on his helmet.

This helmet was from Water Fairy.

It increased his detection ability and also came with a one-time effect that allowed him to become immune

to crowd-control effects. However, it had to be activated before the skill landed on him. The effect lasted

for five seconds and the time could not be shortened or extended.

He couldn’t be immune to Sap, but he could be immune to Cheap Shot instead.

Blood Dagger was shocked to see that his four second stun had lost its effect.
