It’s relatively easy to win against monsters several levels above the combatant player . If the player has the skill, experience, and expertise, they usually opt to challenge monsters several levels above them to earn more gold and items .
Solo a boss that is higher in level? Well, now that’s one for the ages .
Boss designed as a completely different type of enemy than mob monsters . For instance, a level 45 player can take down a level 50 monster . Meanwhile, a player would have to be at least level 60 or above to solo a level 50 boss .
Also, that player must be very skilled and proficient in combat, people like Kirito and Asuna .
That’s the difference between a mob monster and a boss-class enemy .
That’s only a basic field boss, by the way . Challenging a floor boss solo while being inferior in level is tantamount to suicide .
Wu Yan had superior levels when he 1v1 the 1st floor boss . He wouldn’t trade blows with the floor boss if he didn’t enough levels to do so .
Challenging the floor boss to a 1v1 on the same level is also basically courting death . Wu Yan is one of the few who accomplished this death-defying act along with Kirito who will do so in the future . Winning in a solo fight was the reason why the players treated Wu Yan like a superstar .
The boss in front of him isn’t a floor boss . It is a monster, unlike the mob monsters they encountered on the way here, this one is not to be looked down upon . Wu Yan did his fair share of solo boss-kills . He is also someone who challenges mob monsters way beyond his current level for breakfast so a boss like this Lion-man monster might be higher in level, but, Wu Yan still has the confidence to take it on .
He also made sure to remain vigilant . The incident with the Beast King reminded him that he shouldn’t take his confidence too far or his pride will be his fall just like what happened last time .
Wu Yan silenced his footsteps as he approached the boss monster .
He drew closer and closer like a silent reaper .
Suddenly, when he came within a distance of about 10 meters away from the monster, the boss woke up from its sleep .
A pair of flickering golden eyes fell upon Wu Yan’s body . It pounced on Wu Yan without even standing up, reducing the distance them to 5 meters .
Like a lion with wings, the monster roared as it took flight . Swooping down on Wu Yan with golden talons, the monster aimed for Wu Yan’s face .
The boss’s attack isn’t as simple as it looked . This was a skill that had high attack power and speed . The monster rushed with such ferociousness that a player would be locked into place by fear and they would forget about evading its attack .
It’s like when a pedestrian freezes up when he is about to get hit by a fast-moving car on the road .
If the person is a seasoned fighter like Wu Yan then this psychological tactic wouldn’t work .
Normally, a squad of 2 – 3 players is enough to take down a mob monster with the same level as the party .
To take down a boss, elite players in a 5-person party would be enough, assuming strong teamwork and given enough time .
Boss are just monsters who came with high defense, terrifying attacks, and surprising skills . They are scarier by themselves than even dozens of monsters on the same level as them .
Currently, Wu Yan is the only one who can solo bosses .
Lion-man’s pouncing attack is very astounding for sure but Wu Yan also moved when the Lion-man attacked .
He immediately dashed forward by about 2 steps . He dodged the stab from Lion-man by turning his body .
He followed up with a Crumbling Strike to counter the boss .
Heaven Gazer landed on the boss, he sent the boss 2 meters away with the shock of his attack .
He tipped the boss over as it landed in a stumble . The first Hp bar of its five Hp bars got a 10% reduction .
He only took away 2% of the boss’s total HP, that’s after he used skills on it . The DEF on this monster must be ridiculously high, it’s going to be hard to find any players that can overcome its defenses . The players on the same level as this boss would need to kill this monster over a very long fight .
Wu Yan clicked his tongue, he gave the boss another two whack of Crumbling Strikes before it got up . Further damaging the boss, he placed a distance between them .
Pouncing seems to be its only skill . It immediately activated another pounce the moment it recovered . It looked humanoid but this boss had a predictable AI like that of an enraged beast . Wu Yan took note of this and he evaded the lunge from the boss .
He evaded the boss’s attack three times in a roll now . In terms of speed, Wu Yan had higher stats than the boss . But, the boss had superior agility and dexterity so Wu Yan relied on Eternal Arms Mastery to dance around the boss . After evading the boss’s attack, he placed some distance between them .
Like a blurry phantom, he weaved in and out of the boss’s attack area . The Black Cats were sweating very hard when Wu Yan dodged with thin margins of error . The boss always missed just when it thought it got him .
If the boss is sentient, it might die out of sheer anger .
Wu Yan didn’t know if this monster had intelligence . But, he can see that this monster’s eyes flashed brighter with each successful evasion on his part .
The monster changed its attack sequence . It stopped blindly pouncing around and it stood on its hind legs . The next instant, it came at Wu Yan like a heavy truck .
Wu Yan’s eyes had a deceptive glint . He stepped back a bit and he charged the monster with a grin .
The Black Cats gasped .
Is he going to trade blows with the Lion-man boss?
Wu Yan stomped and he jumped into the air when it seemed like they would collide . He leaped over the boss and he charged into the cave the monster was guarding .Please download our sponsor's game to support us!
