"bella! let's go!" said jiang fei as he flew toward the four bosses.

"curse you, adventurer! you shall not interfere with the summoning ritual!"
out of nowhere, a loud voice bellowed. the frost lich alone stopped the incantation and turned to jiang fei.
"hmm? that's lucky," said jiang fei as he was surprised to see only one of the bosses turning to him. he had already made his preparation to unleash his full potential.
it seemed that the quest was designed to be completed easily by a level 60 player or a team of three lower level players. the minions were all made to be level 70 advanced elite so that players were forced to use the holy water grenades instead of killing them themselves. it was not meant to allow players to farm experience points. the bosses were lower leveled since the quest scroll was only a fine tier item. if all the bosses had attacked at the same time, it would make the quest difficulty to be an epic tier hidden quest.
"hmph. one by one? i like it!" said jiang fei with a smile. without even needing to worry about anything else, jiang fei hurled his hammer and started the fight.
boss fight and pvp battle differ by attack choices. players could choose to attack whomever they want while monsters could only attack whoever was on the top of the aggro list. since a player's mount was tied closely with the owner's aggro, bosses and monsters alike would prioritize whoever possessed the biggest threat. hence, they would attack whichever with the highest aggro as well as the biggest sized.
the dragon had inevitably become jiang fei's personal meat shield. on any map that jiang fei was able to summon a mount to battle, jiang fei would gain three times the defense value, hypothetically.
not long after, jiang fei and isabella had killed the first lich, followed very closely by the second and third. all four bosses were killed within just five minutes.
"curse you, adventurer! you have foiled my plans! you shall not get away with this!"
the same loud voice boomed when all four lichs had perished. the magic circle that the four lichs had maintained a while ago started to shrink. not long after, the circle shrank to the size of a small plate and vanished in a puff of smoke.
"ding! quest updated!"
quest name: doomsday army's plot 3
quest description: you have successfully stopped the plot of the doomsday army. take the evil gemstone on the altar and bring it to air force marshal rico at xxx,xxx to report what had happened.
quest reward: unknown!
jiang fei arched an eyebrow and peeked at the now empty altar. he walked up to the center of it and found a small, thumb size black colored crystal.
evil gemstone (gemstone, quest item)
embedding effect: unknown!
"nothing to see here, let's proceed with the quest," said jiang fei after he picked up the black crystal.
without wasting any time, jiang fei and isabella mounted the dragon and soared to the sky. from a low altitude, he could see a sea of skeletal soldiers coming from the horizon in his general direction. it was supposedly the reinforcement soldiers that would swarm the altar. it was meant to force the players who took this quest to leave the area to proceed with the quest.
once jiang fei was already 500 meters high up in the air, he was out of the skeletal army's attacking range. the dreadful feeling of being chased after had subsided.
"the coordinates should be that way," said jiang fei as he pointed to a certain direction. the map which air force marshal rico was on was a level 65 map. the place was surrounded by ranges of mountains. the precise location of air force marshal rico was a small encampment. the monsters that spawned in the area were griffons and hippogriffs.
"ding! you do not have permission to enter the air force breeding ground!"
when jiang fei was trying to enter the encampment, there a barrier suddenly appeared to stop jiang fei from proceeding.
"what? there's a barrier here too? how am i supposed to finish the quest?" wondered jiang fei as he frowned.
without any ways to enter, jiang fei tried descending to see if there was a doorway to enter the encampment there. no sooner, his movement was noticed by a few npcs on ground level. not long after, two officers riding their flying mounts came up.
"this is no place for adventurers to wander around! please leave!" said one of the officers.
"i have matters which i would have to discuss with marshal rico!" said jiang fei.
"air force marshal rico? what business do you have with the marshal?" asked the other officer.
"i can only speak with him and him alone!" said jiang fei instantly.
the two officers turned to exchange looks for a brief moment.
"it's about the doomsday army! it is important for me to speak with marchal rico!" said jiang fei when he noticed that the two officers were not letting him pass.
their eyes widened immediately when jiang fei mentioned doomsday army. one of them nodded to the other and turned to jiang fei, "wait here"
that officer descended swiftly. five minutes later, the same officer came back.
"please follow our aerial path. do not stray from us or you will be shot down immediately," said one of the officers. the other officer then flew behind jiang fei, sandwiching him between the officers.
'hmm. good lads. they are being careful!' thought jiang fei.
as he entered the barrier, he saw countless of griffons and hippogriffs flying around in the encampment. those were higher tier flying mounts. it was reasonable to have the npcs guarding the encampment tightly.
'if only i could catch them and sell them to the players. that would instantly make me rich!' jiang fei thought to himself.
even though he was itching to try and steal one, he dared not move away from the aerial path. the npcs sandwiching him were level 75 advanced elite. on the ground, there were many anti-air weapons scattered around the place. jiang fei had not finished the quest yet and he did not want to try and finish it right then.
after flying for a short while, jiang fei came up to a high castle. there were many towers surrounding the castle with large empty platforms on top of them. no sooner, the npcs led jiang fei to one of the towers and landed there. once jiang fei landed, jiang fei's dragon was instantly unsummoned. jiang fei and isabella then followed the npcs into the castle.
they continued down a spiral staircase and once they reached the ground level, the npc stopped jiang fei.
"please wait here," said the npc as he went in through a door. soon, the npc came through the opened door and welcomed jiang fei. it was a huge grand hall. at the end of the hall was a long table with the air force marshal sitting at the other end.
air force marshal rico (human, lord)
note: dawnlight city air force general commander.
since the npc was an ally, the information that jiang fei could see was only minimal. even so, it was enough to know just how strong the npc was.
"young man, i hear that you bring news about the doomsday's army," said officer rico.
"yes, marshal rico. it started when i acquired a scroll…"
jiang fei proceeded to reveal the entirety of the quest that he had gone through.
