I Am A Legendary BOSS - chapter 256
The Lord of the East Sea Metropolis, Bernard, had been defeated in his territory. He also had to destroy a castle full of vampires.
The extermination of the Bruce clan attracted a large curious crowd.
The audience were the Temple Knights and clerics from the Temple of Light.
There were also hidden observers from the Magic Sanctuary, Palace of Darkness, and the Mercenary Guild.
Bernard was a vampire lord whom nobody trusted. Hence, he was not as successful as William. So even though he had great influence, he was suppressed by the powerful forces in the world!
As such, this incident was a great loss of face for him.
When the massacre of the Bruce family ended, rumors of internal strife within the East Sea Metropolis surfaced…
It started as an intrusion, but it turned into internal strife of the East Sea Metropolis. Still, the commoners of the city were not worried, and it did not diminish the authority of Lord Bernard.
Lord Bernard had handled the crisis very well and pacified the ignorant commoners.
William was not bothered by Bernard. It was not the time for an all-out war. And even if there was a need for battle, he wanted to first reduce the scale of the fighting!
William secretly left the city with Diablo and other companions.
(Prompt: You have completed ‘Diablo’s clan feud’]
(Prompt: You have completed an S level mission.]
(Prompt: Diablo will pledge his undying loyalty to you. He will never betray you.]
[Prompt: Diablo’s affinity for you has increased by 1,000 points, and his loyalty has increased by 1,000 points.]
(Prompt: The East Sea Metropolis’ affinity for you has decreased by 1,000 points]
(Prompt: Bernard’s affinity for you has decreased by 20,000 points]
Initially, it was supposed to be an A+ level mission!
But it had changed, and now William was receiving S level mission reward.
The reward did not include the pilfered 200,000 gold coins, 500,000 silver coins, and a hundred pieces of mixed quality equipment.
The reward did not appear to be generous. But if it were given to the players, it would be a great windfall!
Whether it was the mission difficulty level or the mission reward, they were determined by William’s level.
To a player, the pledging of an undying loyalty of a Legendary NPC was the best reward among all mission rewards.
Subordination of a Legendary NPC would make a player very powerful.
With William’s endowment, he was able to obtain the loyalty of NPCs easily. Hence, such a reward was not a big deal to him.
But for other players and NPCs, it was impossible to subjugate other powerful NPCs as their subordinates.
William would no longer condemn his endowment as trash.
William’s fortune was changing for the better. It was a prelude to William marrying Lady Luck!
It was because William had a godly endowment.
The ‘Gods’ mainframe had always treated William like a player when it came to assigning missions…
To William, A+ and S level missions were not difficult. But for a player at the same level, it would be a different story.
For example, the player would not be able to seek help from the Temple of Light, unlike William.
The player would not be able to make use of William’s eloquence, either.
And not everyone could achieve William’s Legendary status.
Since William and his companions had made a long journey from home, they decided to take a trip to Emerald Grand Duchy.
The reason being that William had obtained a piece of information from the Mercenary Guild.
In the deep forest located between Emerald Grand Duchy and Lan Yu Grand Duchy, within ten days, a Blood Fruit tree would bear ripened fruits.
The Blood fruit tree was a tree that could bear at most nine fruits.
The highest quality ‘Blood Fruit’ possessed the ability to improve a person’s potential to the Legendary bloodline.
William had to obtain the fruit.
Besides improving a person’s bloodline, the fruit had a sweet and sour taste…
For example, once William upgraded to level 100, all his attributes would increase by 100%. From then on, his increment in attributes would stagnate at 100% regardless of the level.
William did not know if that would change if he became a Sage or a God…
But he knew that if he obtained the ‘Blood Fruit’, he could break the 100% limit!
Even if there was a 1% increment, the effect would be tremendous. William thought it was worth the risk. However, he would not take such risks for the sweet and sour taste of the fruit.
“Wow, I didn’t know that Emerald Grand Duchy has such good stuff as the Blood Fruit.” Violent Dragon looked pleasantly surprised. An NPC could not differentiate the various bloodlines, but the fruit could increase the growth potential of a character. So, any ambitious professional would not give up the chance to obtain the fruit.
Burned Cinder scoffed and said, “It’s only the Blood Fruit. Even if you give it to me, I will not bother!”
“Hehe,” said Alec.
“Hehe,” said Wells.
“Hehe,” said Diablo.
William glanced at Burned Cinder as he thought, “I know you’re powerful but can you beat all the warriors here?
“I won’t tell you that you were killed by me once.
“Wells is an earth element shield-bearer. If he stood still for you to kill him, are you able to do that?
“Even I can’t kill him!
“Diablo is weak in a duel. But after he became Advanced, changes appeared in him that even I could not figure out. I’ll never look down on his duel capability again.
“Even if I can fend off the Metal Storm, I’ll be badly disfigured. Only Wells and Violent Dragon can survive the storm intact.
“Alec, he can’t beat you, but he can run.
“Violent Dragon has tough skins and muscles. So he is unlike other Epic warriors.”
Each and every one of the professionals was a powerful professional who specialized in a certain area and had unlimited potential.
Burned Cinder noticed the strange gazes of his companions.
He said, “Of course, I won’t take the fruit. But if I obtain the fruit, I’ll give it to Lord William.”
Once he said that, everyone became speechless.
Burned Cinder was such a good fawning dog!
Everyone was upset with Burned Cinder. Even if Burned Cinder had no intention to take the fruit, the rest were interested.
Lord William was already so powerful, why would he need to take the fruit?
But nobody verbalized their internal grumbling
William frowned. He wanted to tell Burned Cinder that fawning would not make him stronger. Only by accumulating money would Burned Cinder become stronger!
William tightened his legs around the horse’s belly and cracked his whip as he sped towards Emerald Grand Duchy in the torrential rain.
Nobody knew who was spreading the rumors about the ‘Blood Fruit’. But one thing was for sure, it would definitely invite a lot of powerful professionals.
There could be a brutal fight over the fruit.
William had to make good preparations!
If the need arose, he might dispatch a few legions to kill all of them!
Cough, cough, cough! That was only a fleeting idea.
Nobody would do such a thing.
In this game world, powerful professionals would have strong support behind them.
Only when it involved territorial dispute, would the legions be used to resolve the conflict.
Otherwise, it would only involve small-scale skirmishes.
Times were different. William could no longer lead his hundreds of Elves and assassinate opponents recklessly…
The current situation was also different.
If William deployed his legions here, he would antagonize the rulers in the southern region.
Moreover, William was only after a fruit.
This was a normal magical world if there had been no players!
Whether it was a magical or fantastical world, there would be treasure hunting, exploration, and adventure.
It was a pity that very few players had the chance to participate.
Because the players were unable to compete with the NPCs.
Unless it was like the Stormy Island, and the players managed to discover it before the NPCs. Then after obtaining the treasures, they could sell at high prices to the NPCs. But there would be battles between the players and NPCs over the treasures.
Oh! The players tend to be the ones who were killed…
Three days later, the six of them entered the Emerald Grand Duchy that was controlled by the vampires.
