The previous lighting was gone. It was dark now. Really dark. I hadn't seen anything since entering.
I wandered through the cave, others were around me too, they didn't seem fazed at all from the low-light of it. Hmph. I'm fine too! Just watch me!
A window appeared in front of me.
|Entering Party Area.|
The people around me vanished like they weren't ever even there. I jumped. What the heck? Did they all logout?
Ha! See? I was the bravest after all! Onward! I marched deeper into the cave.
Since nothing else was going on I looked at my skills I had.
Reversal F rank.
Power Strike F rank.
Defense F rank.
I didn't have much, since I just started and all, but that's okay! I'm still awesome! Apparently, according to that old guy skills come by as you do certain actions. If I hit a person with my sword a lot I'll get a cool skill! Or something like that. Honestly I didn't fully understand it but do more stuff equals learn more skills right? That means even more power!
Raising the skills I think also improves your stats? I thought that tidbit was worthless before since I thought I already maxed them out. But I didn't. Boooooo.
Maybe I should improve the skills I already have? Or should I just start trying it learn new ones as I progress? Hmmm… Future me's problem. This version of me has better things to worry about!
Like this bat in front of me! I pulled out my sword. Battle stance ready!
The bat flew haphazardly around me. Half-hazardly? I don't know! It flew like mad okay? I swung my sword at it but I just missed. Grr! How am I gonna hit it if its seemingly all around me at once?
A lightbulb went off in my head.
I spun in place and the bat couldn't move out of the way! The whirlwind collided dead on with it.
With that, it's hp bar went halfway down! Hahaha! Aren't I smart?
The bat fell on the ground, dazed from my attack. Here's my chance!
"Power Strike!" I shout, I rushed towards the bat and my sword glows. I slice down with a mighty blow, the bat is cut cleanly into two!
|20 EXP obtained. Reversal proficiency reached, Rank has increased to E.|
Cool! I use reversal again. My small whirlwind is slightly bigger. I'm getting stronger! How much can I improve it? Hmmm… questions for later. Onward!
Continuing in the cave, I heard another noise. There were now two bats. Two! Isn’t unfair to gang up on someone? I’ll have to teach them a lesson.
The bats flew towards me and began attacking. I suffered scratches all over and my HP lowered by a third. Ow! Isn’t there a way to reduce damage?
Oh, what about that Defense skill?
“Defense!” I shout. My body begins to glow blue all over. The bats attacks no long hurt as much. Hahaha! I try to attack but I can’t. Huh?
After a though, I remembered what the old man said, I think he said I can’t move or attack while this skill is active. What the heck? Isn’t it useless then? I’m never using this again!
I turn off Defense and instead just use Reversal. The two bats are knocked away. I don’t wanna do anything fancy so I just continue my Reversals until they perish.
|40 EXP obtained! Reversal proficiency reached, Rank has increased to D.|
Easy! But my troubles didn’t end there. Another bat appeared. Ugh. I charged up a Power Strike and slashed. I actually managed to hit it without the Reversal. It’s HP plummeted it to almost nothing.
"Reversal!" I spun and cut the bat down, it's hp bar emptying.
|20 EXP obtained. Power Strike proficiency reached Rank has increased to E.|
|Level up! Skier Level 2! Skill Stone Toss obtained.|
I then exploded in a flash of light.
