The boss growled at him and then it charged straight at Wu Yan for punching it in the face . It brandished its battleax in anger .
His heavy and quick steps shook the room . He’s clearly very large and rotund but his size clearly didn’t impede his speed . The creature’s footsteps became quicker and faster as they loudly reverberated in the room .
Wu Yan looked at his left hand as if there’s no boss that wanted to smash him into the ground . His heart actually throbbed with elation as he clenched his fists .
When he looked up again, the Boss is already a little more than 1 meter away from him .
Swinging his Heaven Gazer so fast he made afterimages, he rushed towards the boss without fear .
The boss stopped and it swiped the bone ax at him, this attack was aimed at Wu Yan’s head .
The boss’s agility and speed would shock anyone . But, Wu Yan is even faster than the boss . His speed is something Asuna who would later be known as The Flash couldn’t compete with . He swung at the same time as the boss, they both hit each other by giving up defending .
It’s audibly evident that they hit each other very hard . Both disparate combatants flew back from the aftershock . The other raid group members weren’t sure how to continue . They temporarily forgot about the strategies they agreed before this because of this epic fight in front of them .
Both sides suffered damage but they didn’t take note of their damage, after landing, they immediately exchange attacks again .
It’s like the clash of titans here, the loud crash of grinding weapons took their breaths away . They also couldn’t help but feel their bodies heating up in response to this mythical brawl .
Kirito, Asuna, and Diavel watched this 1v1 fight between a player and a floor boss . After multiple hits, Wu Yan still had a green health bar as the other players hissed from the damage he took .
HP Bars will stay green if total HP remains above 50% of Max Hp . But, go lower than 50% then the HP bar will turn yellow . The Hp bar will turn into an alarming red color when it is reduced to 10% of max hp .
A player’s HP should theoretically by common gamer sense be fundamentally lower than monsters . Assuming both parties are at the same level, or when the monster is not lower than the player in levels by 10, that should have been the case .
Wu Yan’s 1v1 session with the Boss proceeded while his HP bar remained green . He must have an immense defense to endure such brutal attacks .
Even a specialized tanker in the raid group can’t take a serious attack from the floor boss with a green Hp bar after that .
“His gears must be super high-grade…”
Diavel assessed with admiration in his eyes . Meanwhile, Kirito and Asuna are too busy watching the fight to comment .
A player and a monster fought each other like mad dogs . Not giving an inch to neither side, they crashed against each other and they slammed, pounded, and smashed with every ounce of strength in them .
The floor boss had the absolute advantage in terms of defense, HP, and attack power compared to normal players . But, Wu Yan is an aberrant . His HP is inferior to the boss so he compensated for that with a ridiculously upgraded set of gear . His defense is at least two times the Floor boss’s defense . He suffered little to no damage when they exchanged attacks .
His weapon is also like a beyond-end-game weapon at the current stage . He coupled that with his current in-game sword skills to fight on par with the Floor boss .
At this point, he’s just probing the boss with raw power and defense .
His Eternal Arms Mastery is still unused at the current juncture .
This brutal battle of Hp attrition gave everyone a suffocating sense of savageness . It felt like the player and the monster are sworn nemesis who wanted to coat their weapons with the blood of their sworn enemies . Death and survival mixed in a bloody battle of the most primal nature . It scared the players just watching the player take such merciless punishments, they wondered how he can fight with such agility when he’s carrying around such a massive set of balls .
They watched as the Beasts of War fought each other . His 1v1 session left a deep impression in their minds, he infected them with his raw power output . The other players are flushed red with excitement . They wanted to join the fight too, they hated themselves for not leveling properly prior to this fight .
Kibaou is the only one who didn’t feel the fever . He’s completely pale .
He remembered how he called Wu Yan out in front of so many people . How high was he? Did he provoke a monster in human skin? He wanted to praise himself for not peeing his pants yesterday . Maybe he would if he knew about his true power back then .
The battle situation changed .
After exchanging dozens of attacks . Both Wu Yan and the floor boss are now in the red . Kirito and Diavel are the first ones to freeze up .
They knew about the floor boss’s tendency to change weapon and attack mode when its HP bar turns red .
The Kobold Lord threw away the ax and leather shield . It took out a nodachi from its waist .
“What?! That’s a nodachi!”
Kirito and Diavel yelled out loud .
“Wasn’t it supposed to use a talwar?”
The boss’s behavior was changed from the closed beta .
Wu Yan wasn’t unsettled . He is glad it turned out like this . He jumped at the boss .
This weapon change sequence is too long, you’re just asking to get attacked!
Wu Yan stabbed the boss in his armpit . He twisted his body and he sent the boss into the sky .
Wu Yan finally revealed his true skills .
His Heaven Gazer glowed bright blue reminiscent of starlight .
Noticing the skill’s activation, the boss started panicking in terror . It emitted a roar while flipping in the air . It wanted to return to the ground and smash Wu Yan at the same time but it’s too late!
Wu Yan appeared at the boss’s landing spot like a ghost . He slashed out with ferocious momentum .
The boss made a metallic sound like his attack hit his armor . But, the boss flinched in pain as its HP bar steadily dropped closer and closer to 0 . Wu Yan is still clad in blue light, he unleashed the second strike with Heaven Gazer .
Staggered from the initial attack, the boss couldn’t recover in time and the second slash pushed it back again . The next instant, the third attack threw the creature off its balance . The fourth slash blew the boss into the air again .
Whipped by sword slashes, the boss fell along with the depletion of its Hp bar . 3 meters in the air, while landing, Wu Yan did a dropkick to stomp the boss’ chest .
The boss crashed into the ground like a cannonball . Amidst blinding dust, the boss saw with its flashing red eyes, Heaven Gazer which embedded itself into the boss’s glabella .
Finally, it’s Hp bar got depleted completely .
With its head split in half, the boss exploded into a rain of data crystals and fragments…
1st Floor Boss, cleared .
