Chapter 34: Choice, Abyss level trial
Beginner Village 60001.
In the crowded Beginner Village, Ye Tian Xie’s body of old fashioned equipment was the focus of everyone, his face could still kill men and women alike with his super killing eyeballs. Everytime he returned to the Beginner Village, Ye Tian Xie found that increasing his appearance was not a good thing.
“This little brother, come, elder sister will take you levelling, it’s free…..You can also play a fun game…..”A body covered in Steel Equipment, a young married woman pulled on his arm, her eyes had a clear provocative look in them……just like a woman who wasn’t satisfied. Ye Tian Xie’s equipment, made him look like a new player.
“Little big brother, let me give you this equipment…..Can you add me as a friend?” A 17-18 looking took out five White Grade swords while looking at him charmingly.
“This little big brother, want to play with me?” This time it was a 40 year old lady…..
When Ye Tian Xie had safely traversed Beginner Village to arrive in front of the village head, his head was covered in cold sweat.
“Brave young man, it has been a while. Oh? You’ve reached level 10? He, he, not bad, not bad, you’re here to take the Job Change Trial then.” Seeing Ye Tian Xie, the village head’s face broke into a smile.
Just a few minutes ago, Ye Tian Xie had reached level 10. Compared to the never logging out, playing 24 hours a day madmen, he only played 10 hours a day, but with the help of Eternal Moment of Destiny, he had not been left behind. Even though it had lost all the Nuclei of Destiny, Moment of Destiny could still be considered a Faerie Grade Equipment, with his levelling efficiency that was beyond normal people, it was impossible for him to be left behind.
“That’s right village head, I’m here for the Job Change Trial, then I plan to head to the Lost Continent.” Ye Tian Xie replied with a smile.
“Very good. I believe that on the Lost Continent, you’ll have a magnificent adventure. Then……only after passing the Job Change Trial, will you have the qualification to be escorted there. There are 5 levels of difficulty, they’re categorized as, Easy Level, Normal Level, Hard Level, Nightmare Level, and Abyss Level…..Which one do you want to attempt.”
Ye Tian Xie with levelled eyes, opened his lips and slowly said, “Abyss level.”
The village head slightly nodded and said with a smile, “Your answer did not disappoint me, your eyes and your courage made me believe you would choose the hardest challenge. Alright, I’ll send you to the Abyss Level, but brave young man, first remember a few of my words. Facing a formidable enemy, defeat is not shameful, rather it is helpful, it’ll make you wish for more strength. Now, call your companions to come here.”
Until now, no team had yet completed the Abyss Level, no one had even passed the Nightmare Level. But the difficulty of the Abyss Level and what he would face in the end, he was already crystal clear on. So he knew, the people who chose to attempt the Abyss Level Trial was entering into a true abyss……It was something that was impossible for new players.
He did not prevent or persuade Ye Tian Xie because the words he had said before, defeat would encourage him to want to become stronger.
“I don’t have any companions, sending me in alone is fine.” Ye Tian Xie smiled, while giving the Beginner Village head a shocking reply.
“Oh. Brave young man, what you say isn’t true right? Perhaps, you think you can pass the Abyss Level Trial just by yourself?” The village head looked at him in shock, a team of 12 people could not pass the Abyss Level, yet he wants to go into it alone. This was ignorance, or perhaps it was just blind craziness….
“Yes, I still ask village head to send me to the trial zone.” Ye Tian Xie replied.
“This…… Brave young man, you must not know how frightening the Abyss Level is, there have already been many brave young otherworlders like you that have entered, but not a single one have returned. Even though you brave otherworlders cannot die, there is still a penalty with each death…..Ai, I’ll tell you, the Abyss Level is truly impossible, even if you make to end, what waits for you there is…..[TL Note: Anyone getting the feel that this is like Log Horizon, but without the whole stuck in another world thing?]
“Village head, you don’t need to tell me about this.” Ye Tian Xie shook his head, his smile still on his face, “I like the excitement and challenge, the more impossible the challenge is, the more I want to try it, moreover……” His eyes became sharp, as sharp an eagle about to dive in for the kill, “I won’t simply be challenging it, since I’ve made my choice, then I have to pass…..I, am a person who does not know failure!”
“No buts.” Ye Tian Xie interrupted the village head, his eyebrows raised and his lip rose, “In this world there are no absolutes, this absolute terrifying abyss will meet its end. Village head, send me.”
The village head stared straight at Ye Tian Xie, for a while he was speechless. It was as if it was the first time he had met Ye Tian Xie, as he seemed like a completely different person. From his body exuded not a sense of bravery, rather it was arrogance. An irresistible strength, arrogance, and great belief – the power of faith known as self confidence.
Clear eyes, his gaze had a sort of too sharp to touch feel to it, and had a kind of aura that subdued others. His words were not foolish arrogance or presumptuous boasting…..A person who didn’t know failure, his self confidence, where did it come from!?
For a while, the village head let out a long sigh and vaguely said, “Brave young man, you’ve given me the desire to see a miracle occur. Something that is clearly impossible, but I still want to see it happen……Your bravery, your pride, your confidence has infected me”
“…..” Under the village head’s praise, even though Ye Tian Xie’s skin was thick, he still felt a bit embarrassed……But to receive the highest possible reward, why was it so roundabout.
“I hope, you can truly accomplish it……Here, take these.” The Beginner Village head took out 20 small white potions and placed them in Ye Tian Xie’s hands.[TL Note: I was so tempted to write it’s dangerous to go alone….]
Unnamed special recovery potion: 60001 Beginner Village head does not know where these potions came from, its effects have characteristics normal potions do not have, in total there are only 30.
Effects: Upon use, instantly restores 300 HP, no cooldowns.
A small potion in hand, upon seeing the effects of the potion, Ye Tian Xie’s hand could not help but shake a little…….No cooldowns – it turned out this was a potion without cooldowns!
