Chapter 299: Explanation
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Li Yi started slashing at the Queen of Pain rapidly, as her buff stacked more than 20 times…
As an OP boss, the Queen of Pain was completely immune to all CC skills. The Hurricane Sword’s Stun had no effect on her.
“You shall pay the price!”
The Queen of Pain’s Sonic Wave roared out, causing a [-1500] to appear on top of Li Yi’s head. After seven seconds, he helplessly dropped dead on the ground.
As the five members corpse ran back, they simply looked at each other silently, still speechless from what had just happened earlier.
“Let’s switch dungeons.” Moonlight Ocean suggested.
Li YI shook his head, “The remaining three were also at similar difficulty levels. Although we don’t need to do them in order, the Queen of Pain had a unique drop that we need. Even if we don’t fight her now, we’ll have to come back for her sooner or later.”
“Then let’s fight her in the future than. Let’s go get some other first kill for now. This boss is so utterly disgusting.” Little Elf from the Magical Realm frowned.
Li Yi grunted in agreement, but he shook his head. “Let’s try once more. If we still fail, then we’ll switch.”
“We lack the MP for healing, I feel that the result would be the same no matter how much we try.” Moonlight Ocean was already feeling defeated.
Li Yi looked towards Little Elf from the Magical Realm, “Little Elf, do you have any plan?”
“Me?” Little Elf from the Magical Realm was stunned.
“Think. Whether we could clear this dungeon is all up to you.”
Little Elf from the Magical Realm was shocked.
In his past life, Little Elf from the Magical Realm walked the path of a solo player. A lot of the dungeons once thought to have been un-solo-able were successfully solo-ed by her. This Dark Song in front of them right now was no different. Back in the days where he was playing a Thief, Li Yi had attempted to solo this place countless times, but it all ended in failure. He could not survive despite being a Level 80 Thief. After getting wrecked over and over, he helplessly gave up on solo-ing this dungeon.
Li Yi could not pull it off, but Little Elf from the Magical Realm could!
“I don’t have a clue.” Little Elf from the Magical Realm thought long and hard before helplessly shaking her head.
“Think, dammit think! You gotta have something.”
“I’ve got it!” After about ten seconds, Little Elf from the Magical Realm raised up her hand excitedly.
“F*ck you and your b.o.o.bs!” Li Yi almost snapped.
“Oh well, let’s try it one last time. Whether we clear it or not, we’ll switch dungeons after this.”
Li Yi ordered the Violent Bear King to move forward, initiating the battle.
Since the main issue was their MP supply, Little Elf from the Magical Realm and Fire Ice tried to conserve their MP as much as possible. They maintained the party’s HP just above half, not a bit more. All they had to do was to ensure that no one can get one-shotted by the boss. It could be said that although they got wiped a few times, the accuracy of their MP control had been improved considerably.
One can never grow without pain. After getting wrecked a few more times, one would naturally get better.
The Queen of Pain pointed her finger at Li Yi, initiating her m.a.s.o.c.h.i.s.tic skill.
“Dark Wing! Do you wish to humiliate me?”
“I’ve got it!”
Little Elf from the Magical Elf suddenly shouted. She pulled out a dog whistle and started blowing on it a few times.
“Woof woof, woof woof…”
More than ten fist-sized Chibi Little Kobolds appeared at Little Elf from the Magical Realm’s feet, cheerfully hopping all about.
Once the black light on Li Yi was dispelled, The Queen of Pain pointed at two of the Little Kobolds.
“Kobold! Do you wish to humiliate me?”
“Kobold! Do you wish to humiliate me?”
The two Little Kobolds which were enveloped by the black light stupidly barked a couple of times before slowly striding towards the Queen of Pain.
When Little Elf from the Magical Realm blew on her dog whistle, the two Little Kobolds that were being controlled immediately turned around and returned to her side…
Unlike the usual pets a player could summon, the pets summoned out by tools had free will. Little Elf from the Magical Realm could not control how they moved, only through this dog whistle.
Every time this dog whistle was blown, the Little Kobolds would automatically gather at their master’s feet. This was a gathering whistle…
The Queen of Pain maintained her pose, still pointing…
“Nuke the Queen!”
Li Yi was overjoyed as he swiftly started to draw his bow…
In this state, the Queen of Pain could not counterattack. She was no different than a wooden training dummy.
“Amazing! Never could I have thought that this dog whistle could be used in this way. I’ve greatly underestimated its potential!”
Li Yi excitedly praised as he continued to shoot, causing Little Elf from the Magical Realm’s eyebrows to rise in a smug fashion.
“Well of course, who do you think I am? Hehehe…”
“All hail Director Yang.”
The Queen of Pain maintained her pose for more than a minute. During this entire time, Little Elf from the Magical Realm had blown the gathering whistle countless times. Seeing the cute little Kobolds running about was a sight for sore eyes.
Once the black light on the Little Kobolds finally disappeared, the Queen of Pain loudly shrieked, using Sonic Waves to deal AoE damage to Li Yi and company.
However, another miracle had happened. Due to the Little Kobold’s. .h.i.tbox being so small, the Queen of Pain’s Sonic Waves could not even hit them. After Little Elf from the Magical Realm gave one long and one short whistle, they quietly stayed at the area around her feet.
‘Could it be that Little Elf used this dog whistle to solo this in the past life?’
Looking at this scene in front of him, Li Yi finally understood.
“Kobold! Do you wish to humiliate me?”
“Kobold! Do you wish to humiliate me?”
The Queen of Pain seemed to have some sort of grudge against the Kobolds. When using her targeting skill, eight out of ten times she would target the Little Kobolds. As the need for heals largely decreased, the four girls started to see the light at the end of the tunnel, motivating them to fight all out.
The Queen of Pain’s attacks became more and more frequent, but with the help of the mighty dog whistle, the two healers’ MP was constantly maintained at more than half. With that, there was no longer a problem trying to maintain their MP till the boss dies!
“Ahh, no, this can’t be true. Oh great Lord of Souls, is this how you treat your most loyal servant?”
As the Queen of Pain’s HP hit zero, she let out a bloodcurdling shriek as black gas sprayed out from the ceiling, enveloping her completely.
“My most loyal servant, you still have some worth to me. How would I be willing to let you just die off like that? Hahahaha…”
The black gas hoisted up the Queen of Pain, phasing her through the ceiling, disappearing completely…
“Good job, young heroes. I am s proud of you!”
Highlord Mograine appeared and started blabbering at them before finally walking off, leaving behind a huge treasure chest.
This time, Li Yi decided not to declare the first kill. He did not want to be showered with hate immediately after he stepped out from the dungeon.
[You have attained a Hall of Fame event. Every party member shall be awarded 2 additional Skill Points!]
“Little Elf, go loot. It was all thanks to you we won this battle.”
“Hahaha, but of course. Who do you think I am? I’m…”
“All hail Director Yang.” Li Yi added.
Little Elf from the Magical Realm was still grinning smugly as she opened the treasure chest. Then, the drops left her speechless.
[You have obtained a Diary of a Queen]
“Ahh what a trash hand. You’re almost at my level.” Li Yi helplessly sighed.
The special consumable Diary of a Queen was automatically given to every party member. It was used to increase the power of the Light and Dark Talismans.
“It was a dark and stormy night. I was bathing in the pool…”
After reading through the Diary of a Queen, the Light and Dark Talismans’ attributes changed.
“[Light and Dark Talisman (Purple Grade)]
[Equipment Level: Level 30]
[Light Resistance +25]
[Dark Resistance +25]
[Special effect: Probability of dying from the Judgement of the Great Light reduced by 60%]
[Special effect: Probability of dying from the Dark Song reduced by 60%]
[Note: Unique item. Does not require the player to equip. The effect will automatically activate when the player is in the Light and Dark Instance Dungeon.]”
In another Dark Song dungeon, Big Boy sighed and sent out an order to his party.
“Taste my pain…” The Queen of Pain was unleashing her Sonic Wave in the background.
“What’s wrong?” A pet.i.te girl with a small face asked, visibly confused.
“This dungeon first clear had been taken by someone else. Let’s change dungeons.”
Looking at the dungeon’s progression records, the entire five-man party fell silent…
“That was a quick first clear… Lil Boy, who do you think done it?”
“Other than the Eastern Continent’s Dark Wing, I doubt anyone else could pull it off.
“Let’s go. We’ll go for Man and Woman next. It feels strange, the Light and Darkness Talismans do not have any attributes to them. What is this thing even used for?”
“Hmm, that must be the case. This time, let’s try changing up the killing order.”
As Big Boy mumbled a chant and waved his staff, a s.p.a.ce Portal appeared out of nowhere!
As the party was transported out of the dungeon, the Queen of Pain was still wailing about in the background…
If Li Yi saw this scene, he would definitely be stunned. This was because the s.p.a.ce Portal skill for Wizards could only be learned after Level 65!
Due to the absurd difficulty of the Light and Darkness Instances, countless players were slapped with level penalties. Only a select few top-tier players could obtain the first clears of dungeons, it was nothing but a pipe dream for the average players.
With that in mind, the official forums were plagued with complaints once more.
“The dungeon is open to everyone! I’m a player, I don’t want to be played!”
“Pet.i.tion to lower the dungeon difficulties”
“[DISC] The Fairness of First Clears”
“The Balance of Cla.s.ses, King of First Kills – Dark Wing’s Secret”
The official forums were in utter chaos, with so many complaints that even the Pantheon developers could not keep up.
In Li Yi’s past life, the Light and Darkness Instances were not cleared this fast. The whole reason it was so fast in this timeline was solely due to the presence of the reborn Li Yi.
As the hate on the official site got worse and worse, a few of the more extreme players even started to demand the developers to remove the Archer cla.s.s. They also demanded buffs to the Sky Vagabond, wanting the cla.s.s to be able to heal more than Light Priests, DPS more than Wizards, and defend more than other MT cla.s.ses. They wanted to make the Sky Vagabonds a cla.s.s that can handle both offense and defense.
Due to the influence of Li Yi, there still a lot of other Archers. How could these players not get mad when they keep seeing these posts bashing on their cla.s.s?
From posting to scolding, from arguing to reb.u.t.ting, the players’ pa.s.sion had far exceeded the Pantheons developers’ expectations. Both sides were locked in on their stances, completely ignorant of the other side.
If this were any other game’s developers, they would have given in to the players’ whims by now. However, the Pantheon developers were different. Their att.i.tude towards this was that no matter what the players say or spam, they would not make any changes to their game without reason!
After running for one whole year, King of Pantheon was already an extremely balanced game. Just take the player levels as an example, although there was still a small level gap between the older players and the new players, the gap was rapidly closing.
With things like the triple EXP buff from guilds, the Master-Disciple rewards, and the Newbie rewards, the level efficiency was increased. In the past, players could get 20-30 levels per month, but now, they could easily get 30-40 levels in a month. This reduced the level gap by a lot.
“Dark Wing isn’t the only player to be able to achieve such feats.”
That was the only explanation the Pantheon developers gave!
