Starting With 3 S-Class Talents - Chapter 205
At the bottom of the toxic abyss, Vincent looked at the monster that had lost its life under his blade. The corners of his mouth curled into a vicious smile.
This was the first level 20 creature that he had killed. This meant that he had enough strength to fight head-on with any monster in the toxic abyss. There was no longer a need for him to hide and avoid fighting!
The remaining toxic monsters did not show any fear when they saw their dead companions. Instead, they became even more bloodthirsty. They looked at Vincent with even more greed and savagery.
In the end, one of the monsters roared and charged at Vincent. The other monsters followed suit. They wanted to tear Vincent into pieces and eat him up!
Vincent was not arrogant enough to think that he could fight against a group of level 20 creatures. Therefore, when the toxic monster charged forward, he spread his Flaming Wings and flew backward to dodge the first wave of attacks from the monsters. He also took the opportunity to observe the strength of the toxic Monster Horde.
Soon, Vincent discovered that behind the Monster Horde was a top-tier toxic monster that was running particularly slow. It must have been injured after being hit by the falling rocks or bitten by its companion, causing it to slow down!
“Collapsing Mountain Strike!”
Vincent seized the opportunity and once again followed the same tactic as before. He used his powerful physical attacks and carved out a wider and deeper depression area on the higher mountain wall. This was a second path for the toxic monsters to escape up the mountain wall’s defensive line.
At the same time, the rolling boulders would cause trouble for the monsters below. Not only did it stop them from climbing up, but it also successfully knocked a few toxic monsters down to the bottom of the abyss.
During the chaos, Vincent seized the opportunity to fly down and swing his blade at the toxic monster that was behind the horde.
The injury did not stop the toxic monster from resisting, nor did it make it appear desperate when facing Vincent’s attack. Instead, it puffed up its mouth fearlessly and sprayed a large amount of poison in front of Vincent to cut off all of Vincent’s attack routes.
Although the poison could not stop Vincent’s blade, as long as it continued attacking, Vincent would have to endure the baptism of its poison.
The monster was however in a desperate situation of being heavily injured and attacked. Nevertheless, the monster did not think of retreating at the first moment. Instead, it launched a one-for-one attack on its opponent!
Such ferocity was rarely seen by Vincent. When he discovered that the monster had spat out poison, it was already too late for him to stop his attack!
“Then let’s see who is more fearless!”
Vincent was not a timid or cowardly person. When he realized that he could not dodge the attack, he made up his mind to use World Cleansing Fire. The fire instantly enveloped his entire body. He wanted to rely on the high temperature of the flame to forcefully break through the poisonous screen in front of him.
Just as Vincent’s bloodlust was aroused and was about to put his life at risk, the poisonous liquid in front of him suddenly cracked open. It was like a pair of invisible big hands, emerging from the middle.
Although Vincent was surprised, he did not have time to think much about it. He charged forward with all his strength, and with one slash, he split the venomous monster hiding behind the poison into two halves.
After the successful attack, Vincent immediately flew into the air and found a safe place to rest. At the same time, he recalled the scene where the poison had separated on its own.
If it was not for that god-like scene, Vincent would not dare to imagine his current appearance. It was very likely that he would have been corroded by the poison until he was no longer human!
“Could it be…?”
Vincent could not help but turn his head slightly to look at the crystal behind him. He was able to withstand the poisonous gas in the abyss for such a long time. It was naturally because of the poison removal effect of the crystal. However, he did not expect it to be so powerful that it could even isolate the poison spewed out by a level 20 creature easily!
If his guess was true, Vincent would become much more confident. From then on, when he faced those monsters again, he would just feel like he had entered an uninhabited land. He no longer had to worry about anything!
The toxic monster that had once again fallen to the bottom of the abyss let out a series of indignant roars. At the same time, it seemed to have released a vicious curse on Vincent.
Vincent ignored them completely. His gaze was fixed on the monster corpse that had just died. He raised his hand and once again cast the spirit-binding command.
Amidst a series of violent tremors, many green light dots floated out from the bodies of the two level 20 creatures that had died. However, they did not gather into green light clusters like how the low-level monsters did previously. Instead, they were like water vapor. They floated directly into the sky above the abyss.
Vincent did not want to waste an opportunity to strengthen himself. He hurriedly used psionic power to absorb those lights. However, in the end, he only managed to absorb a small amount. Most of them had flown upwards into the sky.
When the monsters below saw the lights in the sky, they immediately let out a loud roar. For some reason, they became even more furious and began to frantically climb to the top of the mountain.
When Vincent saw this, he seemed to have understood something. However, he could not be certain at that moment. He raised his Purgatory Blade and once again launched a sneak attack on the highly toxic monsters below.
The battle began to come to a pause steadily. Vincent was also reaping the lives of all the monsters rhythmically. Due to the extreme pull in the air, he lured the monsters and found a loophole in their positioning. Then, he took the opportunity to kill one of the highly toxic monsters.
Finally, the last monster died. Vincent was completely exhausted as he laid in the pile of monster corpses. He looked quietly at the sky and panted heavily.
The second step of bravely charging into the toxic abyss had finally been completed!
After clearing out all the toxic monsters, Vincent would be able to unseal the seal of the abyss without any burden and complete the challenge!
When Vincent realized that victory was within his grasp, he could not help but struggle to sit up. He once again cast the spirit-binding command on the corpses to draw out the psionic power from their bodies.
Just like the psionic power in the bodies of the previous level 20 creatures, all the green light spots did not converge. Instead, they slowly rose into the air without any hindrance, as if they were shouldering some kind of mission or rule.
Vincent frowned slightly. It seemed that he would only be able to figure out the whereabouts of those psionic light spots once he reached the top.
Vincent decided to stop thinking about it for the time being. He stood up and spread his Flaming Wings to fly into the air. He waved his hand, and a ball of flame ignited all the corpses below. He then proceeded to fly straight up into the air.
A large number of highly toxic monster corpses were burned, but not a large amount of toxic gas rose up. Instead, the green toxic gas in the abyss was decreasing. Vincent was slightly surprised by the scene.
However, the weight of the crystal on his back interrupted all of Vincent’s thoughts. Its weight was increasing tremendously. The wound on his shoulder was torn open once again, and fresh blood immediately soaked his clothes.
Vincent gritted his teeth and endured the intense pain as he flew upwards with all his might. The psionic power in his body had also greatly depleted.
Finally, when his psionic power was exhausted, he roared and jumped towards the nearby mountain wall. He gripped onto the cracks tightly between the rocks. At the same time, he began to exert strength and proceeded to climb upwards step by step. He relied on the strength of his physical body and willpower.
As Vincent could no longer wait for the psionic power in his body to recover, even if his psionic power was restored, his flying speed would be greatly reduced. The speed at which his psionic power was consumed was also completely out of proportion to the effect of the harvest.
Vincent looked at the exit right above his head. He began to advance steadily step by step. He did not plan to climb fast. Instead, he just hoped that every step he took was on solid ground so that he would not stumble and fall down. Otherwise, all his previous efforts would be wasted!
After a day and a night, Vincent finally climbed to the top of the abyss. He was tired and hungry. His eyes were dizzy as he laid on a rock. He was panting heavily. The wound on his shoulder was numb, and the blood in his body had almost dried up. The green crystal on his back was almost dyed red by his blood.
If this happened in the human world to anyone else, they would definitely be in a hopeless state, or perhaps they would have already died.
However, not only was Vincent still alive, but he was also clear-headed. This was because there was always only one thought in his heart, and that was that he must win!
He must win for himself, for Angelina and Avril, for all his companions, and the Human Race. He had to win against the Protoss!
Vincent blinked his dry eyes and suddenly saw a green light floating in the air before him. It was densely packed together. It was the psionic light that was constantly rising previously.
Vincent suddenly sighed softly as he had thought everything through.
Although the green gas in the toxic abyss was poisonous, it was formed from the purest psionic energy. That was why all the monsters could survive by breathing poisonous gas.
The toxic monsters that had accumulated psionic power to the peak possessed the strength of a level 20 creature. The purity of the psionic power in their bodies would then be further refined. Only after they died would they turn into light and return to the Black Hole world.
However, because of the restrictions that had been set up, the psionic specks of light that had risen to the exit could not return to the Black Hole at all. They could only gather in the air, thus attracting the high-level toxic monsters to gather there and absorb psionic power!
Vincent smiled slightly. At that moment, all the highly toxic monsters had died, and he was the only remaining psionic energy absorber!
Vincent used the last of his strength and gently hooked his finger to absorb all the psionic power into his body. He could feel the extremely pure psionic power increasing his strength rapidly. At the same time, it was also helping his body to recover.
Vincent, who had suddenly recovered to his peak condition, instantly exploded with tremendous strength. He lifted the green crystal behind him and smashed it directly at the seal above his head.
A series of cracking sounds instantly resounded throughout the entire abyss!
Vincent flipped over and jumped out of the hole of the abyss. He returned to the Black Hole world once again. At the same time, he met the Protoss.
Vincent looked directly at the Protoss and spoke with a face full of pride.
The Protoss held the Cup of Fate in his hand and looked at Vincent with a very interesting expression. It was as if he wanted to exclaim in surprise but still looked disappointed at the same time. He sighed, “I really didn’t expect you to escape!”
