Wuxiaworld > Another World’s Versatile Crafting Master > 80 Disadvantage

When the ball of fire hit the Elemental Shield and stirred up a dazzling spark, Lin Li couldn't help but startle. When did this fellow become so strong? Just a fireball had almost caused his Elemental Shield to collapse. He was probably nearing the strength of a Magic Shooter.

After barely receiving the fireball with his Elemental Shield, Lin Li dared not have the slightest negligence anymore. He prepared a wind blade in each hand, but was not in a hurry to release them. He was waiting for Cromwell to begin his spell recitation.

The smile on Cromwell's face deepened after the fireball. Although it failed to crack down the Elemental Shield completely, it gave him a good sense of his opponent's strength.

"A mere level-twelve…" In mages' battle, a difference of more than two levels almost meant that it would be a crushing of one side. Cromwell already had full confidence in winning this duel.

He cast an Elemental Shield on himself too, then began reciting at the full height of his voice.

When the light of the Elemental Shield shone, a wry smile appeared on Lin Li's face. This fellow had really smartened up. But now his arrow was fitted to the string, and he had no choice but to fire. The two wind blades tore through the air with a piercing sound and bumped into the Elemental Shield that was on Cromwell without suspense.

Lin Li knew very well that the two wind blades wouldn't do any damage.

With Cromwell's strength being close to that of the Archmage, the Elemental Shield that he held up could probably withstand even a level-fifteen spell, not to mention the two level-one wind blades. So, Lin Li did not dare to hope for any results at all. As soon as the two wind blades were released, he also began a long recitation.

With his massive mental strength, Lin Li barely caught up with the progress of the spell. Both of them completed a level-nine Flaming Storm almost at the same time.



The blares sounded almost concurrently. In an instant, a fire rose in the middle of Daylight Square.

The earth-shattering collision between the two's spells had everyone on the stands exclaim loudly.

With the exception of a few, no one thought that they would see a battle of this level today. Before arriving at the Daylight Square, almost everyone's impression of them was that of young geniuses—they had talent and strength, but it was only among the younger generation.

Little did they think it would be a battle that could rival the level of the Archmages fighting.

Just look at their skillful and rapid spell-casting technique and the powerful magical wave they released. These people even had an illusion… Was it Gerian and Matthew who were battling in their stead?

Both were hit almost simultaneously by the Flaming Storm, but the results were different. The Elemental Shield on Lin Li was instantly broken by the crush of the magic level and the previous impact of the fireball. Cromwell, who was also standing in the midst of the flames, had maintained the faint halo on his body all the time…

The gap between the two levels was exposed in a flash.

"Are you still able to laugh now?" Cromwell revealed a cruel smile, pointing at Lin Li with the Aether Staff in his hand. The magical crystal at the tip of the staff glowered in a blue light, and the roar of an icicle followed.

At this moment, half of the audience's hearts were clenched. Most local forces were related to the Guild of Magic. Gerian, who was sitting on Isaac's right, tightly clenched his fists.

As an Archmage, his vision reached farther and was clearer than others'. Gerian knew Cromwell was nearing the strength of an Archmage with that fireball he released. And sure enough, he had also had the absolute advantage in the clash of the Flaming Storm afterwards. Now that Lin Li's Elemental Shield had been broken, even if he topped it up with the Ice Armor Spell, it might still be difficult for him to receive this icicle…

And then Gerian indeed saw the ice armor propped up in front of Lin Li. But for some reason, Gerian could feel that there was something wrong about this ice armor.

At the moment when the ice armor was propped up, the icicle had been shot.

"Tch!" At the instant the icicle came in contact with the ice armor, a piercing sound rang through the Daylight Square.

"Phew…" Gerian heaved a long sigh of relief, for he already saw that after that icicle hit the ice armor, it did not break it down as he had imagined, but swept past the glittering ice, bringing with it pieces of ice debris. It was then that Gerian understood why he'd felt there was something wrong with the ice armor earlier on.

The angle at which the ice armor was propped up was changed by shifting the elemental sequence. Kudos to this kid for thinking of it…

The ice armor propped up obliquely would naturally be more advantageous than the one propped up on the front in the face of an oncoming icicle.

The smile on Cromwell's face froze as he failed to score with the icicle. He had never imagined that his opponent would fend off the icicle in such a way.

There were gasps of awe from the stands, and the smile was still on Lin Li's face.

Perhaps only he knew that he had no need for the ice armor. He could totally receive the icicle with the strong magic resistance attributes of his Robe of Wrath. However, he didn't want to reveal the secret of the Robe of Wrath so early. He wanted to surprise Cromwell with it at a more critical time.

After a short Spell Cycle, Lin Li had gained a new Elemental Shield. At least on the surface, both sides were back to the same starting line once more.

But the disparity of two levels still existed. Just as Lin Li was putting up his Elemental Shield again, Cromwell began another round of outbursts. This time, he made use of a large amount of low-level spells. Even if his mental strength couldn't be compared to that of Lin Li's, with an absolute dominance in level, the amount of instantaneous spells he could release was definitely not less than Lin Li's. Numerous wind blades and arcane missiles landed unceasingly on the Elemental Shield, stirring up ripple after ripple on the sheer layer of light…

And under this storm-like attack, Lin Li's counterattack was equally sharp. Mind Control, Delirium… the harassment was so varied and numerous that Cromwell had to divert his attention to set up a mental protection field. Lin Li released a few wind blades from time to time, constantly trying to weaken the Elemental Shield on Cromwell…
