Ling Tian- the name that attracted countless gazes every time it appeared. It had been a while since he had fallen from the Player Level Rankings, and his name had not been heard of for a long time.
At this moment, when this name once again sounded in players’ ears, it wasn’t just the Chinese players who were shocked- players worldwide committed this Chinese player’s name to memory.
“… Passed through a World Boundary? East Ocean Continent…? This…” Yun Feng was blown away, and almost couldn’t believe his ears. Right now, players had barely walked out of the early stages of the game. It was impossible that World Boundaries had been removed so early on, and everyone knew that it was impossible to damage World Boundaries or to pass through them. No player had ever succeeded in getting past a World Boundary before, so this news completely shocked every player.
“How did he do it?” Xiao Qiu Feng was also dumbfounded.
“I have no idea,” Yun Feng shook his head, bewildered, “But what I know is that things are about to get exciting in the East Ocean Continent.”
“Did you hear that? Ling Tian actually passed through the World Boundary and is in the East Ocean Continent!”
“Holy crap! He even got through a World Boundary! Just how heaven-defying is he?!”
“No matter how you see it, that’s so cool! The first person in the world to cross a World Boundary! Entering the East Ocean Continent by himself… this has never happened before!! And my EXP bar just increased by 10%!”
The China Region was once again sent into an uproar by Ling Tian. This time, everyone was much more excited than they had ever been before. What Ling Tian did not only affected himself, but everyone else from China. After all, everyone in China received Fame and EXP, and every player in Japan lost Fame and EXP. It was only 10% of their current EXP bars, but that applied for hundreds of millions of players! That affected the entire Region’s average level. Suddenly, the average player levels of the China Region and Japan Region were suddenly pulled apart by 20% of a level!
Undoubtedly, the China Region’s players were all rejoicing. Who wouldn’t be overjoyed after receiving so many benefits for free? On the other hand, the East Ocean Continent was filled with curses and rage. All of the players there wanted to immediately find this Ling Tian and destroy him…
“He actually went to the East Ocean Continent! Why did he go there? And how did he get past through the World Boundary?”
This was the first time Long Tian Yun had heard Ling Tian’s name from a system announcement after that catastrophe at the Long family’s residence. This caused him to feel extremely uncomfortable, as the memories of that night suddenly poured into his mind. During this period of time, he had commanded his people to continuously search for Ling Tian. However, whether it was in the real world or in the virtual world, they simply couldn’t find any traces of him. It was as if he had vanished into thin air. However, his Fame on the Fame Rankings continuously increased, which meant that Ling Tian was still alive and kicking! As such, Long Tian Yun found it difficult to even eat and sleep.
“Young master, don’t think too much about it. It doesn’t matter how he got there, but him being in the East Ocean Continent is a good thing for us,” Cang Yan smiled as he walked over, saying, “Just going there is tantamount to him for intruding into their territory, and he even caused them to lose Fame and EXP. Moreover, he’s all by himself. Now, all of the Japanese players will definitely harbour quite a lot of hatred towards him. Now that he’s there, he will be hunted down by all of the Japanese players. No matter where he goes, there will be people after his life. He must be feeling quite proud of him at the moment, but we’ll see how he looks when he’s been killed over there. From how I see it, he won’t be able to last even a day. If he’s discovered as soon as he gets there, perhaps… he’ll be back in a few minutes.”
Cang Yan’s words were quite pleasing to Long Tian Yun, causing him to coldly laugh, “Ling Tian, let’s see how arrogant you can be by yourself in the East Ocean Continent,” He paused for a moment, before asking, “Have you received any information about Xie Yu?”
Cang Yan immediately replied, “Three days ago, someone saw her in the deepest region of the Great Valley. However, she immediately disappeared, and she hasn’t been seen ever since. These days, her level has been rising incredibly quickly, and is now three levels higher than me. She’s the highest level in all of Asia now.”
“I see. Next time, when you receive any information about her, inform me immediately,” Long Tian Yun replied. Even now, he still had no idea why Feng Xie Yu had acted the way she did, and neither did he know where she went. Just like Ling Chen, it was as if she had disappeared from the world.
“Japan? Why did he go to the Japan Region?” Li Xiao Xue asked in curiosity.
“I have no idea,” Yun Meng Xin’s beautiful face was also filled with surprise, “Perhaps one of the things he’s looking for is over there.”
Li Xiao Xue’s lips curved upwards as she said in disappointment, “If it’s like that, I won’t be able to see him in the near future. He’s all by himself, but the entire continent is filled with enemies. However, I don’t feel that he’ll be in any danger- it’s the Japanese players who should be worried.”
As she spoke, she looked at the incredibly excited Dwarves and the Fairies who were rushing over. Anyone who saw this scene would feel awe and reverence towards Ling Tian.
“After spending so much time with him, one can’t help but believe in him more and more. He has something that just attracts everyone to him,” Yun Meng Xin said as she smiled. Although she said this, there was a slight hint of worry in her expression. She also looked over and said, “Look, Xiao Xue, the Fairy Clan has also come.”
Greenwood led 2,000 Fairies out of the Fairy Realm, and excitedly joined up with the Dwarves. After looking at the Fairies, Li Xiao Xue couldn’t help but exclaim, “Wow! No less than expected from what Meng Xin called the ‘purest race’. They’re all incredibly handsome and beautiful.”
“Of course. If Xiao Xue is interested in any of the males, just let them know. There are more males than females in the Fairy Clan, and with Xiao Xue’s looks, any of them would be overjoyed to be with you,” Yun Meng Xin said as she laughed.
“Don’t joke around like that!” Li Xiao Xue looked at Yun Meng Xin, unimpressed, before mischievously saying, “But if it was that Ling Tian, I’d definitely be okay with it, hehe.”
“No way!” Yun Meng Xin subconsciously replied.
“Ooh, why not? Could it be that Ling Tian already has someone? Hmm, I wouldn’t be surprised- such an impressive man is probably already surrounded by many beauties. That doesn’t really matter though. After all, having many beauties around him is a sign of one’s charm and power. If I really set my heart on a man, even there are many women around him, I would still be able to make him mine,” Li Xiao Xue said as she smiled.
“… Which man could resist Xiao Xue’s charms? It’s just that… Su Su has always secretly liked him, and Qi Qi is the same… So…”
“And… what about Meng Xin? Do you like Ling Tian too?” Li Xiao Xue suddenly asked with a big grin on her face.
Yun Meng Xin froze, then slowly shook her head, but did not say anything.
Yun Meng Xin’s reaction caused a hint of curiosity to flash in Li Xiao Xue’s eyes. She began to smile even wider, “Could it be that Meng Xin thinks that Ling Tian isn’t good enough for her? Well, I’m not surprised. After all, you even rejected that Long family’s heir, so why would you be interested in an expert in a game?”
“It’s not like that,” Yun Meng Xin shook her head as she replied, “It’s not that he’s not good enough for me, but… I’m not good enough for him.”
Li Xiao Xue stared in shock for a few moments before bursting into laughter, “Woah! So there’s actually such a man who can make Meng Xin feel so inferior… this is quite interesting. I want to meet Ling Tian more and more now… maybe I’ll fall in love at first sight.”
This famous and powerful Loulan Queen was now acting like a teenager who had a crush on someone, which made Yun Meng Xin feel both speechless and amused. Although Li Xiao Xue was joking, but the growing interest in her eyes was quite real. However, for some reason, Yun Meng Xin hoped that Li Xiao Xue wouldn’t meet Ling Tian anytime soon.
East Ocean Continent.
“Ding… you have passed through the World Boundary and entered the East Ocean Continent, and are currently to the west of the Sunrise City. Because your status is that of an “intruder”, killing players will not increase your Crime Points, and you will receive the same amount of EXP as killing monsters of the same level. You will not be prevented from fighting within cities, and Japanese Region players will not be prevented from attacking you within cities either. However, attacking NPCs or destroying structures will still result in you being chased down and punished. If you die, you will be sent back to the Forgotten Continent.”
As the system announcement sounded out, his surroundings became clear. He was in a completely foreign place, and it was the first place he had arrived at within the East Ocean Continent.
The East Ocean Continent had one Royal City and two Main Cities. The Royal City was called the Emperor City, and was situated in the centre of the continent. The two Main Cities were respectively the Sunrise City in the north and the Sunset City in the south. Most Japanese players were in the Sunrise City, as they could only enter the Royal City after reaching LV50. The place where Ling Chen had teleported to was west of the Sunrise City, about 5 kilometres from the western gate of the Sunrise City.
The system announcement made it clear that as long as he didn’t attack any NPCs or destroy any structures within the city, he would not be attacked by NPCs in the city… this was also for the Japanese players as well. However, he was free to fight players within the city. What made him even happier was that killing Japanese players would give him as much EXP as killing a monster of the same level!
This situation was much better than he had expected. He looked around him and found that there was not a single player in sight. As such, he put on a set of ordinary-looking equipment, and started to walk towards the Sunrise City.
