Chapter 529: Searching For the Treasure Box!
Chapter 529: Searching For the Treasure Box!
"Hey, this is not my fault, okay?! Who knows that ugly Kraken fox can still use its tentacles to explore this water dungeon!" Tang Li Xue replied with an unyielding tone.
"All right, this is not the right time for us to talk about whose fault it is! Can you think of a good plan to get away from those tentacles' pursuit?" The perfect copy rolled her topaz blue eyes and said while skillfully dodging the several Kraken's tentacles that wanted to catch them.
The perfect copy flew swiftly above the water surface under the [Wings of Freedom]'s effect while pulling the real Tang Li Xue and entering one of the channels randomly.
"Err, let me think for a few moments~! From the book I have read before, each octopus tentacle has hundreds of suckers. This sucker serves as its senses of touch, taste, and smell to feel the surrounding environment and find its prey. Moreover, each of its tentacle function independently as if it has its own brain." Tang Li Xue blurted all the information she knew.
"Holysh*t~! That sounds like a bunch of bad news rather than helpful information!" The perfect copy gnashed her fangs and complained.
From their [Extrasensory Perception], Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy could sense that some of those tentacles were still chasing after them!
"Damn it~! They are really persistent! Come on, think something fast~!" The perfect copy whined again while kept flying at high speed.
The path was extremely complicated, and there were so many intersections.
However, Tang Li Xue's perfect copy did not have any free time to carefully ponder which way she needed to go right now, so she could only take a random route.
Sometimes she would take the left path a few times, sometimes she would just take a straight path, and sometimes she would take the right path one or two times...
"Hey, hey, hey~! Stop taking random paths like this~! What if we get lost later?!" Tang Li Xue hastily warned with a flustered tone.
"I am not flying randomly! I deliberately take a detour while following this red arrow, so we can quickly find the treasure box!" The perfect copy answered in a solemn voice.
Unfortunately, the perfect copy bumped into a dead end when she took a left turn!
"Damn it~! I really hate labyrinth!" The perfect copy cursed while gritting her fangs in anger.
When she wanted to turn around, the path behind her was already blocked by several Kraken tentacles!
Tang Li Xue sighed as she entered [Perfect Assimilation] mode again with the Phoenix of Pride while saying: "Sigh... Okay, let's just stop playing around and destroy them quickly! We still need to split up and find the treasure box before any fox gets it first."
As her silver furry figure was shrouded by deep blue flames, Tang Li Xue condensed a pair of deep blue [Phoenix Wings] on her back.
She also activated her [Sun Dragon Claws] divine ability and condensed a pair of deep blue dragon claws hovering on her left and right side!
"The size of these tentacles is smaller than when we fought in the lake. It seems that Kraken Fox could control the size of its tentacles too. I don't know if the strength of these tentacles would also decrease along with its size or not..." The perfect copy concluded after she saw the group of tentacles in front of her.
Those several tentacles already charged swiftly toward Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy as if they wanted to grab both of them violently.
Tang Li Xue flapped her [Phoenix Wings] and rushed forward at high speed while each of her [Sun Dragon Claws] grabbed two tentacles to stop their attack!
Meanwhile, her perfect copy already used [Spider Scorpion Transformation]. Her body swelled in an instant and was covered with a thick and hard carapace.
Not only that, but the perfect copy also activated the powerful divine ability she copied from Hei Yinghao!
[Blood Ignition] – Quadruple Amplification Open!
The perfect copy's overall stats soared once again, especially her agility stat since her [Wings of Freedom]'s buff was still in effect!
Of course, her stamina and energy were also decreasing rapidly.
This [Blood Ignition] divine ability was never intended to be used continuously in battle.
The correct way to use it was only to activate it when the user wanted to use the ultimate one-hit skill to finish the opponent in one move.
But since the perfect copy planned to finish off these tentacles quickly, she could only activate this [Blood Ignition].
The perfect copy's silver furry figure suddenly vanished as she flew forward extremely swiftly and used one of her [Imperial Moon Dancer]'s battle style moves...
While the real Tang Li Xue condensed a dragon head with her deep blue Flames of Pride!
[Sun Dragon Fangs]!
The deep blue dragon head opened its jaw filled with sharp teeth and bit down until it tore several tentacles to pieces!
And the perfect copy's [Moonlight Flash] cut the rest of the tentacles into many small pieces!
Tang Li Xue quickly canceled her [Perfect Assimilation] while her perfect copy also turned off her [Blood Ignition] to save some stamina and energy.
Tang Li Xue condensed a flying disc with her [Energy Manipulation] divine ability and stepped on it before she plunged into the water below her.
"Let's split up now, so we can find the treasure box faster." Tang Li Xue instructed her perfect copy.
The perfect copy nodded toward Tang Li Xue and flew swiftly toward the right side.
Tang Li Xue thought for a while and decided to summon out her martial soul, [Golden Winged Serpent], to help her look around the complicated path here.
Her [Golden Winged Serpent] was seriously injured in the previous deadly heavy rain.
Even though it had already recovered a lot, but it still could not fly around quickly like before.
However, it was not a problem since there was a lot of water here!
With its set of skills such as [High Water Affinity], [Greater Water Sense], and so on, the [Golden Winged Serpent] was more proficient in water than any fish.
Tang Li Xue also did not plan to use her [Golden Winged Serpent] to fight yet; she only wanted to use it to help her find the right way toward the treasure box.
"Wake up, [Golden Winged Serpent]!" Tang Li Xue muttered as she summoned out her martial soul.
A majestic golden light suddenly shone from Tang Li Xue's furry body!
The [Golden Winged Serpent] plunged down into the water under Tang Li Xue's flying disc and swam around happily.
"You can go now! But remember to only swim in the place where we never go before, so my [Mapping Sense] can record this entire dungeon quicker." Tang Li Xue instructed the [Golden Winged Serpent].
The [Golden Winged Serpent] nodded at Tang Li Xue and dived down, then swiftly swam away from there.
Tang Li Xue's [Mapping Sense] would automatically record all the places she ever visited in her mind.
The function was the same as the map in the game.
As long as she could record this entire water dungeon, she would never get lost in here anymore.
Tang Li Xue, her perfect copy, and the [Golden Winged Serpent] moved around swiftly to survey the complicated tunnels and paths in this water dungeon.
With the help of Tang Li Xue's [Mapping Sense], the map of the water dungeon slowly formed in Tang Li Xue's mind.
But when the map of the water dungeon finished about one-tenth...
Tang Li Xue's perfect copy actually met with another fox!
It was a white fox with black spots on its body!
As the perfect copy met face to face with this black-spotted white fox, the black-spotted of this white fox suddenly shone with blue light!
Several ice beams suddenly shot out from the black spots on its body toward the perfect copy!
"What the...?!" The perfect copy exclaimed in shock and hastily used her [Energy Manipulation] to condense a shield in front of her.
When one of the ice beams struck the perfect copy's shield, the shield instantly froze into a block of ice, then the second ice beam shattered the shield into pieces!
The perfect copy did not have enough time to condense another shield to protect herself as the third ice beam hit her body and made her freeze into an ice sculpture!
Without any pause, the fourth ice beam struck the perfect copy's frozen body!
[(Sun And Moon Aegis) resisted a deadly blow for your perfect copy! (2/3)]
The perfect copy recovered from the frozen state, but the fifth ice beam hit her again without any mercy and froze her again, then the sixth ice beam hit her body for the fourth time...
[(Sun And Moon Aegis) resisted a deadly blow for your perfect copy! (1/3)]
Just as the perfect copy was almost got hit by the seventh ice beam, she suddenly vanished!
Yes, Tang Li Xue hastily used the [Twin Moons] divine ability to re-summon the perfect copy onto her side!
Tang Li Xue and her perfect copy were speechless, and they stared at each other in astonishment for a while.
The perfect copy gulped her saliva and said with a nervous tone: "Wha... What the hell is wrong with that fox?! How could it be so powerful?! I did not even have enough time to do anything at all!"
Tang Li Xue's expression became solemn as she muttered: "That fox is definitely on the predator level. Sigh... We are really in big trouble now. I thought that Kraken Fox was already bad enough for us."
"Then what should we do? Should we just give up on this treasure game and wait until the time is up?" The perfect copy asked.
This is the correct second treasure game rules:
[The red arrow will always point toward the treasure box's location.]
[You have 1 hour to find the treasure box. The last fox that is holding the treasure box after 1 hour has passed will win the game and get the precious treasure.]
