Chapter 21: Version Update (1) 

“Notification: The Demonic Sect’s protector, Du the Unvanquished, is one of Shinra Sect’s generals and possesses extraordinary strength. Players are recommended to form a raid group before attempting this quest.”

Shen Jingchen and Quiet And Steadfast were locked in battle with Du the Unvanquished. In fact, it looked as if they were falling into a disadvantageous position. Shen Jingbin couldn’t help but feel a little anxious upon seeing this.

She turned to her surroundings in an attempt to find something that might help. After searching for a while, she finally found a slip of paper in Wu Lang’s sister’s pocket.

A notification popped up when she opened it.

F*ck! Form a raid group?! In that moment, Shen Jingbin’s mental state crumbled a little.

In <<Legends of Celestials and Demons>>, parties had a maximum limit of five players, while raid groups had a limit of twenty. However, apart from dungeons which required the formation of one, the only other time raid groups were formed was when players tried to tackle a world BOSS.

In that case, didn’t the system’s recommendation to form a raid group mean that Du the Unvanquished was an existence on the level of a world BOSS?!

What kind of sick joke was this!

After pondering it over for a few seconds, Shen Jingbin shouted at the two of them, “Are you guys able to inspect this mob’s[1] level?”

Upon hearing this, Quiet And Steadfast took the opportunity to launch an appraisal skill at Du the Unvanquished’s back when he wasn’t paying attention.

However, when the pretty blue lights of the appraisal skill flashed past him, Quiet And Steadfast noticed that what appeared on top of his head wasn’t his level, but rather a string of scarlet red question marks.

There was a slight change in Quiet And Steadfast’s expression.

The appraisal skill was a common spell used to distinguish a monster’s level.  In general, a monster’s level would be displayed on top of their head when appraisal was cast on them. However, monsters that were of a higher level than the caster wouldn’t display their level. Instead, a string of scarlet red question marks would appear in its place.

Raising one’s level in <<Legends of Celestials and Demons>> was a very challenging task. The level cap at present was currently level 130. However, in the game’s two years of service, Quiet And Steadfast was the only one who had achieved a level that exceeded 125.

Previously, when the leaderboards were refreshed, Quiet And Steadfast was sitting at level 127, 5 levels ahead of the number two player on the leaderboards.

If even Quiet And Steadfast couldn’t appraise his level, then that meant he was definitely above level 127.

An enemy that was above level 127… there were only a few world BOSSes of that level in the entire game!

So did this mean that both he and Shen Jingchen could go toe to toe against a world BOSS?

What kind of joke was that!

“Dawn, drink a large health potion and kite[2] him. Don’t fight him head on. This mob’s at least level 128, we don’t have any way of dealing with him.” Quiet And Steadfast truly was a guru at the game. He immediately barked out orders to Shen Jingchen after quickly analyzing the situation.

“Level 128, what the f*ck! No wonder he hits so hard!” Shen Jingchen immediately exclaimed, “You better hurry up and think of a way to save me!”

Quiet And Steadfast furrowed his brows, “I’m thinking, hold on.”

There was no doubting Shen Jingchen’s strength. Although he looked unreliable, he was still one of the rankers on the leaderboards. However, dragging this out wasn’t a solution either.

“Nut...ah, Nutjob… Look over that NPC once again and check if there’s anything else on her that we can use. This mob’s level is way too high. We can only put up a struggle and hold him back, we can’t kill him.”

Quiet And Steadfast still had difficulties calling out Shen Jingbin’s name without any hesitation.

“Alright.” Shen Jingbin disregarded his awkwardness, giving only a word of reply before she made her way back to pat down Wu Lang’s sister once again.

However this time, she very carefully searched her from head to toe, leaving nothing to chance.

Suddenly, Shen Jingbin suddenly heard a “ding” when she touched her chest.

“Congratulations, you have obtained a limited use summoning talisman. You may summon ten friends to your side. Number of uses: 1/1.”

To the development team: Can you guys be any more perverted?! Don’t you know that such a setting would lead young children astray?!

  1. Enemies in the game. Can be anything ranging from monsters to NPC humans. More or less applies to anything that is hostile and isn’t controlled by a player
  2. Refers to a method of killing an enemy by staying at a distance, using ranged attacks, and running whenever they come near.
