WEB 8 Part 33 (2nd half)
Berculi jumped off from his dragon 200m up in the air. If he did nothing even a Synthesis Knight would die when he lands onto the ground. Berculi generated Wind element beneath his feet, and walked down like he was on a flight of spiral stairs. He stole this technique from the Elder a decade ago, and there was no combat technique Berculi did not know in UW. For the first time in 150 years, Berculi picked up the will to kill. The last time that happened was against the 1st generation Dark Knight general. Even back then though the amount of hatred and anger felt was not as potent as what he’s feeling now, and he didn’t let those emotions flow into his sword back then. Berculi was angered that RW people urged DT to start a war and threw away lives needlessly. He knew not all RW people are bad, with Asuna proving a counter example. It’s only people like Vector that’s doing this.
Berculi focused all his Incarnation into his sword and flew the last 10m towards Vector, trying to strike him down. His sword glowed so bright even the skies lost its colour. It was the strongest sword attack ever used in UW history, the Incarnation twisting even the laws of the system, and if it hit Vector even his astronomical amount of HP would be emptied out all at once. Of course,
it had hit. Vector slid away at the last second, not even his black crystal armour is touched by the attack. The only thing gone was his crimson cape, it was instantly disintegrated by the attack. The hard stone beneath them had a gouge left where Berculi’s blow had landed, and rocks fell off of their plateau from the force of the attack.
Berculi was shocked at how Vector dodged even that, but he was too experienced for it to affect his fighting. The next attack came less than half a second later, a slash that only nicked Vector’s armour as Vector dodged yet again. This time though Berculi was sure he got Vector, as before he landed he had already finished the incantation for his Release Recollection. His ‘Time-Piercing Blade’ had launched an attack into the future, and Vector backed himself into that attack. The Dark God’s crown was shattered from the force and Berculi was sure at any moment Vector would be severed from head to toe. Vector raised his hands up above him as if begging for mercy, but then he
caught the descending Incarnation blade attack that came from behind with his bare hands
. Berculi knew the Gladiators had a similar technique, but that could only have been done with a body of steel and it could not have handled an attack of that level of power. The attack faded away like a mirage, and absorbed into Vector’s hands. Vector’s wide blue eyes were dyed black like the bottomless abyss. Berculi had thought at the depths of the abyss there are countless stars, but then corrected himself:
. Vector has trapped souls inside him, from everyone he has ever consumed.
Berculi asked Vector if he could absorb others’ Incarnation. This was the first time Gabriel heard about the term Incarnation in UW, and deducted some of its attributes from that. Vector’s voice was bone-chilling, with no indication the speaker is alive. Vector commented Berculi’s Incarnation is like vintage wine, thick and sticky with a heavy taste. It’s not to Vector’s preference, but it doesn’t hurt to have an entrée before the main course. Vector drew his thin longsword, surrounded by blue-purple will-o-wisp lights.
Vector smiled, and told Berculi he’ll be drinking some more.
Scene change, one of the US players’ claymores finally broke past Asuna’s defence and slashed across her arms. Asuna ignored the pain like a red-hot iron rod being stuck into her, and healed it forcefully using Incarnation. With four chained hits the man responsible was struck down, cursing as he fell. Asuna had long lost track of how many she had defeated, or how long she had been fighting for. The only thing she knew for certain was the amount of players still seemed as endless as before. Asuna told herself this was nothing, the boss fights in Aincrad normally lasts a few hours anyway. Synthesis 49 (Checking the name, the katakana for his name is (レンリ) ‘Renri’ so from now I’ll use this instead) to her left is mowing down enemies with his weapons with no problem, and to her right is the normal forces in Switch formation. They seemed to be holding up fine despite needing to swtch faster and needing heal spells more often.
Asuna thought about what the US players’ next more will be, they’re experienced VRMMO players as well and probably won’t just blindly rush into this for the rest of their attacks. They had no magic or archers, so what would they do? Asuna had just concluded they’ve got nothing that counter them when a wave of 20 heavy lancers came into play, with lances and heavy shields. Asuna parried a attack and stepped in to kill one of them, but his screams was not the only one that rang out. Multiple normal humans had died by the lances, and Asuna quickly went to help out there. The next wave of lancers then started running towards them however, and Asuna glanced back at the centre where she used to be. One of the youth soldiers trembled as he stood there trying to fill the gap, and Asuna tried to run back to stop the kid from being killed. Her left hand didn’t manage to catch the lance in time, and the lance pierced right through her chestplate and through her belly.
