The Legendary Mechanic - Chapter 452 - Sudden Attack!
Only if the reward type was [Item] would there be a chance to obtain the Mission Completion Card.
Are you a fake main character Old Herlous?
Han Xiao turned around and looked at Aroshia. He felt that touching her was more dependable.
Aroshia looked at him with a poker face, and they looked at each other for three seconds.
Han Xiao shook his head, rubbed his temples, comforted himself, and thought,This is just the first time. It’s normal to meet a small obstacle. It’s normal… normal…
Han Xiao knew that the chances of getting a Mission Completion Card on the first try were very low. Although abilities were not what he needed most at the moment, it could have been worse.
Sigh, things would be much easier if the players were here. I could just give out a mission to have them give me Mission Completion Cards, and I wouldn’t have to hope to get lucky.
Han Xiao shook his head and looked at the interface.
Please select 1 from the 3 talents below.
[Flame Affinity]: +16% Fire Resistance, +10% damage of fire element abilities
[Advanced Mental Toughness]: +35% Psychological Resistance, decrease Psychological Resistance needed to be immune to mental controlling debuffs, -30% duration of these debuffs.
[Cell Engine]: +21% Energy recovery speed, +330 energy
With just one look, Han Xiao had already made a decision. [Flame Affinity] was suitable for the Mage class and had a very limited effect on him. [Cell Engine] was not bad, but it was not as practical as [Advanced Mental Toughness]. Anything that had the ‘Advanced’ prefix was usually half decent. Furthermore, the Psychic class could attack through the armor of the Mechanic class, so this talent could largely enhance his Psychological Resistance.
Plus, he would be able to use it on the spot.
After some pondering, Han Xiao suddenly realized that something was wrong.
Wait a minute, why am I becoming tankier?
Is there really no way for me not to be a tank! I want to deal damage, damn it!
Although he did not get a Mission Completion Card, he did garner quite a number of benefits on this trip—two talents, one Character Summon Card that felt kind of useless, more than two million experience, and 200,000 Enas.
Chen Xing was staring at him with a smile, expressing his intention of sending these guests off graciously. He suppressed his emotions and could not wait to do his stuff after the mercenaries left.
Han Xiao reached out his hand and said, “Since the mission is completed, we shall get going.”
“Sure. If there is a chance in the future, I will work with you again.”
Chen Xing smiled politely and grabbed Han Xiao’s hand.
Suddenly, without any warning, Han Xiao’s hand locked onto his hand tightly. Han Xiao abruptly pulled Chen Xing to his side before he could react.
In an instant, the Void Dragon mechanical suit covered his body. Han Xiao leaned back slightly, then heavily headbutted Chen Xing’s face with his armored forehead.
Being suddenly attacked, Chen Xing felt the world was spinning.
Han Xiao activated all the enhancing modules of Void Dragon. With the Electromagnetic Pulse Controller stimulating his body, he entered the [Excited] state. Together with the attribute boost from Void Dragon’s combat form, his Strength increased by more than one hundred points. One headbutt was not enough, so he headbutted Chen Xing again, stunning him for a short period.
Using the short opportunity, Han Xiao grabbed Chen Xing’s head with his hands and released [Void Jet Spray]!
The shockwave turned the luxurious hotel suite into a total mess like it had been visited by a tornado.
“What are you doing‽”
Herlous, Sylvia, and the Volga brothers were all shocked!
A mercenary is attacking the employer!
It was still so peaceful moments ago, why did he suddenly attack‽
“You…” Chen Xing’s resistance was not low. He finally regained focus after taking two charges of Void Jet Sprays. His eyes turned pure white, and the surging Psychic power pushed everyone away.
He clutched his head full of pain, stared at Han Xiao with hate, and bit his lips. He was shocked and enraged.
He did not understand why Han Xiao suddenly attacked him, but that did not stop him from feeling threatened.
“Argh!” Chen Xing opened his mouth. Psychic power flew into his voice, and the sharp high note pierced into the others’ brains like a spear, causing a strong pain.
They felt like the world was spinning, and their organs were distorted like they were going to vomit. Sylvia was the weakest. She grabbed tightly onto her brain like it was going to explode the next second.
Han Xiao felt painful too like a blade was stirring in his brain. The [Advanced Mental Toughness] that he had just acquired instantly showed its effect. He had planned to attack long before he chose this talent. It largely reduced Psychic damages and debuffs, which was very useful against Psychics.
After all, he knew everything about Chen Xing.
Han Xiao endured the pain and pounced forward. His elbow slashed onto Chen Xing’s psychic shield like a tomahawk, making a loud crash of the sound barrier breaking, then it landed on Chen Xing’s pretty face.
Blood splashed out from Chen Xing’s nose and mouth. He held his bleeding nose and backed off in a panic. His eyes were filled with rage and shock.
“Herlous, go outside the door and stop the guards. Volga brothers, protect Sylvia and don’t get too close to us.”
Han Xiao spoke very quickly. At the same time, his fist covered in armor punched and broke Chen Xing’s shield time after time, forcing him to back off without a choice, not able to use psychic attacks. He was moving closer to a dead end.
“What is going on‽” Herlous was still lost. He clenched his teeth and decided to trust that Han Xiao had a reason to do this.
Boom boom boom!
Herlous rushed out the room door, swung his Battleship Slicing Blade, and stopped the guards outside.
“Piss! Off!” Chen Xing screamed like a woman, and blood flew out from his eyes. He used some kind of secret technique to stimulate his mind and go beyond his psychic power limit. The windows and walls of the room exploded and shattered, and dust suffused with the air. Han Xiao was pushed aside as well.
With the opportunity to catch his breath, Chen Xing clenched his teeth and activated his psychic power. All the items in the room floated up into the air and fused into a wave, pushing Han Xiao back and not letting him get closer.
This time, Chen Xing’s face was covered in blood. His luxurious and beautiful clothes were coated in dust and blood, and he was in a very bad state. He was still suffering from the concussion resulting from Han Xiao’s headbutts, so he was unable to focus, and his psychic power was flowing slower than usual.
The next second, the four statues that had fallen to the ground were grabbed by Chen Xing with his psychic power. Like a thirsty man seeing water, he pressed the statues against his forehead.
A unique psychic rhythm appeared in the air. In a spectrum invisible to the human eye, the Psychic Current in the statues was flowing into Chen Xing’s brain. His weakened Psychic powers recovered extremely quickly.
This was the statues’ effect on Chen Xing. The Psychic Current in them was like a strong supplement to him that could enhance his psychic power. Items like this that received prayers over a long time could all be used by him to strengthen his powers. This was a method used by the Psychics, absorbing Psychic Currents to strengthen themselves. It was rare and had a very strong side effect, the user would usually be impacted by all the thoughts in the Psychic Current, which might even damage the user’s mind.
Aroshia saw this and was about to stop Chen Xing but realized that Han Xiao was secretly giving her a hand sign, telling her not to do anything. Hence, Aroshia stopped and watched things unfold.
Originally, he needed to be very cautious when absorbing the Psychic Current from the statues or his mind would be influenced by the countless thoughts in it. However, Chen Xing could not be bothered about that now. God knew if this mercenary had become crazy. All Chen Xing knew was that if he did not save himself, his life might be in danger.
After gulping down the Psychic Currents from the four statues, the statues fell onto the ground and lost their uniqueness, only left with their tough exteriors.
After absorbing the Psychic Currents, Chen Xing’s eyes turned red. A horrifying Psychic power surrounded him, and even the air was distorted. His psychic power was so strong that it was visible. His head did not hurt anymore, and his back did not ache anymore; he recovered to his peak performance and even beyond.
“How dare you beat me up to this extent? I—I will turn you into my Silent Slave!”
Chen Xing wiped off the blood on his nose and lips. His tone was full of rage like a woman who realized that her beautiful face had been destroyed.
Strong Psychic powers gathered as Chen Xing prepared to launch his strongest attack.
This time, Han Xiao’s eyes sparkled. Suddenly, he activated Hila’s Character Summon Card, and a hologram of a redhead woman appeared behind him.
[Whisper of the Dead]: Deals psychic damage three times to the enemy. Damage is based on the user’s INT or MYS (can be indicated). Decreases all status of the target by 15%.
Duration: 3 hours
Dark red energy surged from Han Xiao’s eyes and shot straight at Chen Xing.
Although he did not have the ability to enhance Psychic attacks, his Intelligence was very high. The three consecutive attacks were quite powerful.
The world before Chen Xing’s eyes was spinning. The heavy hit landed on his mind and caused him to lose control of his Psychic powers. The Psychic power that he had gathered exploded before it was launched.
Blood poured out Chen Xing’s nose and mouth, and his eyes turned blood red. This was not because he used some ability to break his limits or anything like that but because the veins in his eyes exploded.
Psychic’s Psychological Resistance was supposed to be very high, yet Chen Xing’s mind was like it was almost defenseless, causing him to be heavily hurt instantly.
Suddenly, his state became even worse than before he absorbed the energy from the statues. His mind became extremely slow, and his knees became weak. Chen Xing fell onto the ground and gasped for air. He grabbed a statue in disbelief.
“You… did you do something to these‽”
