A month was nothing to puppet masters who possessed an average lifespan of over a hundred years, but the month the Savage Class spent in the Infinite Mountain Range was a period of time they wouldn’t forget for their entire lives!
“Big Brother Fei, we’ve found its lair!” Mo Ka ran hastily to Bai Xiaofei’s side, excitement written all over his face. Compared to the Mo Ka who had lacked a lot of confidence a month ago, the current Mo Ka had a face that carried a bit of maturity now, and every single move he made had a bearing vacant of his previous immaturity.
“Where is it?” Bai Xiaofei revealed a pleasantly surprised expression. He didn’t seem to have changed much. After all, he was already very experienced.
“It’s about 5km east of here. Wu Chi and Fang Ye are keeping an eye on it!” Mo Ka didn’t speak a single useless word, as his sloppy habit had vanished without a trace.
“Give the signal and gather everyone over. We’ll move right now! No matter what, we can’t let them escape today!” As soon as Bai Xiaofei finished speaking, Mo Ka immediately withdrew a sleek bamboo tube, and with a pull, a dazzling white light shot into the sky and tore through the air, emitting an ear piercing sound.
In less than three minutes, the remaining twelve people successively rushed over, besides Wu Chi and Fang Ye who Mo Ka said were keeping an eye on their targets. Based merely on their outward appearances, the tremendous changes the group had undergone over the last month were obvious.
Every single one of their faces had a wisp of firmness and confidence. Living in the Infinite Mountain Range for a month had ground the edges they shouldn’t have had and allowed them to become very adaptable and resilient!
“Wu Chi and Fang Ye have found the two Earth Dire Bears. Today is our last day, and we must complete this final assignment no matter what!” Bai Xiaofei’s voice carried a trace of revenge, and the others had similar expressions on their faces.
Earth Dire Bear, Spiritual Rank magical beast. They mostly appeared in pairs, and even though they were bears, they possessed a cunning that bears shouldn’t possess. Moreover, their defensive strength was high and possessed formidable strength, causing them to be overlord-level existences among low-level magical beasts.
In addition, these two Earth Dire Bears had already fought three times with Bai Xiaofei and the others!
The first time was during a battle where they had encountered each other around half a month ago. The sixteen of them had been utterly beaten, and if it wasn’t for Xue Ying lending a hand, they might have suffered casualties.
The second time was three days after that. Fang Ye had noticed the two of them, and Bai Xiaofei had organized an encirclement. That battle was the longest battle between them, and one of the two Earth Dire Bears had suffered a heavy injury while Xu Chen and Wu Chi had been injured as well. Both parties had withdrawn from the battlefield.
Wu Chi and Xu Chen’s injuries had healed a week later, and Bai Xiaofei had led the Savage Class to encircle the magic beasts once more. That time the Earth Dire Bears hadn’t put up much of a resistance and had directly chosen to flee. Bai Xiaofei and the others hadn’t pursued them due to environmental reasons.
Today was the last day of their training plan, and those two Earth Dire Bears had been on the Starnet Ranking for an entire month!
With old and new scores to settle, this final battle would determine if the Savage Class could resolve them!
The group didn’t make the slightest sound as they moved through the dense forest, and their rhythm of advance was comparable to an army that had undergone standard training. In less than twenty minutes, all of them arrived at their destination, and not a single person had fallen behind!
“They are still within the cave. They just returned from hunting, and the injured bear has healed.” Wu Chi reported the situation at the first possible moment, and Bai Xiaofei listened as he observed the nearby terrain.
“Xu Chen, you take Zhu Nuo and Duan Yiyi to guard the river on the left and prevent them from fleeing through there. Xing Nan, Fang Ye, both of you go find an extremely high spot and provide support when necessary. The remaining people charge directly with me!”
There was no need to make too many preparations because, as old opponents, Bai Xiaofei already knew these two Earth Dire Bears like the back of his hand.
Xu Chen and the others swiftly took their positions, and the remaining people ran directly towards the cave under Bai Xiaofei’s lead.
At this moment, the Earth Dire Bears within the cave seemed to have sensed that something was off and raised their heads in unison, but they didn’t have any intention to charge out.
A single man – no, a single bear – could hold down an army while within the cave. So if Bai Xiaofei and the others really dared to charge inside, they would surely die.
And Bai Xiaofei wasn’t stupid to such an extent.
He held two extremely familiar balls in his hand before throwing them into the cave with all his strength. It wasn’t long before a pungent smell came out from within.
A magical beast’s sense of smell was much more acute than a human’s, so the two Earth Dire Bears forcefully endured it for a moment before having no choice but to abandon their lair. They roared madly as they charged out.
The entrance to the cave wasn’t very big, so they only had to face a single Earth Dire Bear at a time.
“Ming One, Ming Two!!!” Along with Bai Xiaofei’s roar, the Ming brothers instantly moved over to block the entrance. Their combination shields combined into one, and they stood behind it, having become much more robust over the past month.
Previously, they were only at the Apprentice Rank and were at most capable of enduring three charges from Roar Boars. But now both of them had attained the Proficient Rank and dared to jointly face an Earth Dire Bear’s strike head on!
A muffled bang resounded as the Earth Dire Bear smashed its paw into the shield. The two brothers didn’t move in the slightest, causing the Earth Dire Bears to have no choice but to continue enduring that fatal smell.
After failing its first strike, the Earth Dire Bear resolved to utilize its specialty. The instant the earth attribute energy started surging, Bai Xiaofei called the Ming brothers back. “Retreat!”
A large row of spikes shot up from the place they stood a second ago, and if they had been slower by half a second, Ming One and Ming Two would have become meat skewers.
The two Earth Dire Bears, who were like small mountains, then ran out of the cave, one after the other. Both of them were dazed because their noses had been severely irritated.
But, while the bears were in a bad state, Bai Xiaofei and the others just happened to be the opposite!
Fang Ye and Xing Nan had hidden in the distance, and they launched an attack at the same time, vividly displaying the terror of the Ranged Stream.
On the other hand, the Earth Dire Bears weren’t stupid. Even though they were unable to see Fang Ye’s and Xing Nan’s attacks, their instincts drove them to hide their vital points.
Along with a muffled bang, the Earth Dire Bear that was the first to charge out immediately lost its balance from being hit by Fang Ye’s heavy rifle. The origin energy arrow, which came soon after, accurately struck the spot where Fang Ye had broken open the Earth Dire Bear’s defenses.
“Roar!!” A shrill cry of pain sounded out from the Earth Dire Bear, but before the bear could completely stabilize itself, a subsequent attack arrived!
It was Zhu Sisi and Qi Wei who had charged forward this time!
Zhu Sisi first puppet was a pair of red thigh-high boots, and they only had a single effect, acceleration!
But speed was power. The might of Zhu Sisi’s strike at full speed was only inferior to the full-forced strike of Wu Chi, who had advanced to the Martial Warrior level!
Meanwhile, Qi Wei had already transformed. Transformation Stream puppets were special existences that existed between animate and inanimate puppets, and their effect was to bestow their previous strength to the puppet master.
Qi Wei’s first puppet was the soul of a Spiritual Rank Icetooth Tiger! And it improved Qi Wei’s crowd control and strength!
At this moment, the spot the two had chosen to attack was the first Earth Dire Bear’s short legs!
