Guild Wars – Chapter 838: Core Members Tournament 15 Bahasa Indonesia

13th Battle: RamButt wins!

14th Battle: The Showman vs Pedro Sousa, begin!

Both participants came up on the stage at the same time, one smiling eerily, while the other was sullen and had dark clouds over his face.

The Showman couldn’t help but tilt his head in surprise, wondering what his opponent had witnessed for him to have the face of a man who had walked through hell and back, having seen the most vile sights the human mind can be subjected to.

“Fellow friend with the large frame, is something bothering you?” The Showman asked with concern.

“Hmph, that has nothing to do with you. Let’s just get this over with!” Pedro growled as he snapped out of his partial daze.

The Showman shrugged and smiled. “As you wish.”

Now let’s talk about this segue to our sponsor, Raid Shadow Legends.

“Well, well, well, we have the honour of being the first two Divine Class holders to face off. This should prove to a fruitful battle, no?” The Showman commented with a smile.

Pedro frowned and began glowing with a mixture of Hellfire which looked like deep orange flames mixed with soot and Blackfire which looked like darkness itself that was lit as flame. Coincidentally, Hellfire burned the souls and the mind of its victims while Blackfire burned the body and lifeforce away from targets.

In essence, getting hit by either was not good.

“Both of us have Control at Tier 4 thanks to our bloodline, but my class is more suited for combat. Your various Spirit based checks are useless since I have both high Spirit thanks to my class and the Dark Angel inheritance of the Incubus like Draco.” Pedro pointed out.

The Showman rubbed his chin. “That is true. Our battle will be neck and neck. I do have some class skills that could help, like Studied Combat or Misdirection, but that would just be wasting my time. I have to admit that my class is not very well suited for direct combat.”

“Since you know as much, how about you just forfeit to make things easy on both of us? As a Broker, surely you understand the Balance of Probabilities and the chances of success more than I, so you must know the most logical choice to make here.” Pedro advised while watching The Showman carefully.

The Showman nodded, then shook his head. “The same could be said for many bloodline holders or Divine Class holders here. Besides, since we’re the first two to meet like this, it would be boring to end things without at least having a go at it. We’ll just have to do what everyone else will do in the next round and resort to our bloodline to resolve this.”

Pedro’s heart clenched as this was what he dreaded most. Without waiting for the Showman to continue, he blasted forth like a bullet, far faster than anyone who had come up on stage so far, roaring as he threw a Hellfire infused punch at The Showman.

The fellow himself remained standing calmly, only his eyes turned into a hypnotic kaleidoscope of colors as he smiled at Pedro.

“Luckily for me, I have a slight advantage bloodline wise.”

Pedro froze in place, his fist mere inches away from The Showman’s skull, the wind from his movement, almost blasting the fellow to the other side of the ring. Despite his seeming calmness, the Showman couldn’t help but sweat internally.

This Pedro fellow was a monster. With dual Horned Demon and Dark Angel inheritances, as well as his tailored Divine Class, it was like fighting a weaker version of Draco’s Devil Form and Demon Form combined into one.

He had entered the guild not too long ago and since then he had stayed lowkey, though those who knew him would be aware that was only because Perdo preferred debauchery to fame. Now that a competition had been called forth, the other core members could finally gauge him and see this monster who made their hearts palpitate.

More than 80% of them shook their heads, knowing that no matter what games they played, they would not last against this foe. Only the 8 God Serpent Inheritors, Misery, Kiran, Tunder, AP_Berzerker and Armonia could claim to fight him on equal terms.

He was just unlucky that he had to meet one of the few who could suppress him this early in the match.

Pedro’s eyes became red as he resisted the mental compulsion from Eden. The God Serpent itself manifested and coiled around The Showman, staring at Pedro with a serious expression.

A God Serpent was infinitely powerful, but against a member of its own lineage, it would naturally be subjected to the limitations and protections Lucifer left in the bloodline. Obviously, if Lucifer was good at mental manipulation, he would leave bloodline ‘coding’ that would increase the passive mental strength of his descendants.

Eden was currently like a world class hacker, bypassing all these restrictions and defenses to attack Pedro’s mind. Against any other bloodline family, he would use less than 10% of his current effort and against a normal member of the Lucifer Lineage, he would use less than 50% of the current effort.

It just had to be a talented youngster with dual Inheritances and a relatively high purity that he was tasked to work on. As difficult as it was, Eden relished the challenge. Cracking Pedro was an exciting affair, and was only possible because he had not yet received formal training in the Dark Angel inheritance from the Lineage trainer, or this would be 5,000% harder for Eden.

The invisible battle continued between the two with their bodies seemingly frozen in time. Both sides were burning Bloodline Energy, one to suppress the other, while the other did it in hopes of resisting.

Alas, the God Serpent Inheritors were the God Serpent Inheritors for a reason. Apart from Essence who was a special and unique case, no other Lineage members could match up to their power, purity and prowess, even less so after Draco had combined both halves of them.

Eventually, Pedro’s eyes glazed over as he was dragged into a dream realm where he would relieve his worst memory. The Showman sighed and wiped off the sweat that had formed on his brow, while Eden slumped on his shoulder like a wet noodle.

Having dealt with his enemy, both The Showman and Eden felt like they had achieved something great this time, not to mention that they had both learned a lot from this ‘hacking’ experience.

Now, The Showman should have less difficulty ‘hacking’ into Lucifer Lineage members, which was crucial since he would likely be facing other God Serpent Inheritors in the next few rounds.

Not to mention, he felt that his strained and distant relationship with Eden had significantly closed after passing this hurdle. Before, the arrogant and prideful serpent would never coil itself around his shoulders like this.

With Pedro dealt with, The Showman was about to send him off the stage when he paused. Looking at the traumatized and horrified expression on Pedro’s face, he couldn’t help but wonder what exactly the fellow was seeing.

How bad could it be that such a powerful and fierce fellow showed an expression like that?

Sharing a look with Eden, the two tuned in. But that wasn’t all.

The wicked serpent that tricked Eve, Eden, also connected the minds of all the core members in the area so they too could view this spectacle. It was Eden’s punishment to Pedro for making him struggle so much, hmph!

Of course, when they actually went in, no one was prepared to witness a visual horror on par with a certain Orator’s skills.
