Chapter 68 – Brendel’s swordsmanship (3)

After the words left through Buga’s lips, the greatsword in his hand swung vertically down towards Brendel’s head. He was ten meters apart from Brendel, but he combined it with a powerful jump that closed the distance, and in just a split second the heavy sword had already reached Brendel’s head.

Brendel did not need to look at the oncoming sword to know how dangerous it was. It was almost like an avalanche happening on top of a snow mountain. Before the sword reached its mark, the sound that emitted from was like thunder.

[Definitely a Gold-tier’s strength!] Brendel gritted his teeth and prepared his stance.

He tilted his neck and lined his left arm to form a triangle on the upper half of his body. It was the best defense he could use at his disposal. The system he had combined the levels of his skills and shaped into a reality where his physical feats were raised; if he was still in the game, the description would be ‘Aouine rank 9 Swordsmanship defensive stance – 27% chance to parry’.

The swords met in a blaze of sparks, and Brendel’s sword screamed as if it was in pain. The sword twisted back as it failed to stop the greatsword. He constantly adjusted the strength in his hand, but the immense power behind the greatsword seemed to press forward every inch like an unstoppable tidal wave, and he realized that he was unable to avoid it.

The sword was different from Tirste’s lightning thrust. Brendel felt like he was an insignificant object when his strike came and there was no possible way to avoid it. He had seen this attack before in the game when Buga killed one of the Tree Shepherd’s high ranking members, but experiencing the attack personally was an utterly different experience.

[But he didn’t use full strength.] Brendel suddenly realized this fact. [It showed off his trump card that he have unlocked his Element, and it’s a considerably high level ‘Earth’ Element at that, otherwise it wouldn’t show off how skilled he is in the sword.]

Brendel exhaled coldly. The hall was quiet.

Even though the exchange between them was nothing short of remarkable, almost no one saw what happened clearly. The only thing that they felt was how Brendel did not seem like he was at a disadvantage. The mercenaries held their tongues and suppressed their gasps, not knowing how they should react.

[[[Buga’s sword was avoided by a Iron rank swordsman?]]] The mercenaries who had the same rank as Brendel started to put themse
