Facing the ruthless prompt, Fang Linyan could only helplessly pout. He greeted the royal dragon knights and entered the Westminster Abbey Cathedral alone.
Although Fang Linyan entered alone this time, he had been in and out of this place several times. He was very familiar with this place like this was a public toilet.
Besides, with the ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’, he could just act accordingly.
Fang Linyan was also a very cautious person. After he learned that powerful magical creatures like to stay in the thick fog, he decided not to enter the thick fog area. He just shot sneakily and ran away.
To give a very apt example, he was like a single-player dungeon player that lured out 1 monster, hit it and run. Even worse, someone would even run out of the dungeon if he senses anything… Although this behavior was a bit cowardly, there was no doubt that it was quite effective.
An hour later,
Fang Linyan squinted and aimed at an incoming giant mosquito-like creature.
To be precise, he aimed at its abdomen.
Details of this giant mosquito-like creature were on pages 14-15 of ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’.
Its name was cow mosquito, and its wings reached more than 3 meters. It was characterized by its amazing strength. It could even carry large livestock such as cow and horse, then dropped it from 100 meters above the sky. After the corpse decomposed, it flew down to suck the juice from the corpse.
Its magical ability was [Blink], which could move 10~15 meters in an instant. This ability gave it a huge advantage when hunting and escaping.
Cow mosquito had 2 weaknesses:
The first was the eye pattern on the abdomen, which was one of its life glands. A successful hit on it would be a critical strike.
The second was the fear of blood. As long as the blood was smeared on the arrow or bullet, the cow mosquito would be in great pain after getting hit. After struggling frantically and exhausting all its strength, it could be slaughtered easily.
More importantly, the mouthpart of the cow mosquito and the pair of compound eyes were casting materials, which could be sold for the hard currency of the magical world: Galleon!
Therefore, after Fang Linyan saw this cow mosquito, he seemed to see a pile of shiny Galleons. After carefully observing its patrol route for about 10 minutes, he was certain to get it.
Suddenly, Fang Linyan pulled the trigger.
The muzzle of Lee Enfield Rifle spit out a tongue of flame, and a bullet that had already been smeared with a lot of blood quickly shot out, accurately piercing the fat and soft abdomen of the cow mosquito.
It was worth mentioning that Fang Linyan had completed the milestone of Poacher, and he had equipped the title: Hunter.
The effect of this title was: Increases your damage against any magical creature by 20%.
After the shot was fired, it hit the eye pattern on its abdomen. This monster did not have the advantage of digitalization. An amazing damage was caused!
72 (Lee Enfield Rifle’s double damage characteristic) + 14 (Title Hunter increases damage by 20%) + 7 points (Basic Shooting LV4 bonus) = 93 points × 2 (crit on weakpoint attack) = 186 points (theoretical damage)
Not only that, the cow mosquito was a flying creature.
The common problem of flying creatures was their low defense, just like the fact that the plane was definitely not as sturdy as the tank.
So even after the defense damage reduction was applied, the cow mosquito actually suffered a terrifying 169 points of damage!!
Under such a huge trauma, the cow mosquito was immediately knocked down from the air, and a half-meter-long opening was opened in the entire abdomen. Its internal organs rolled out.
But the powerful vitality of the magical creature made it flutter on the ground a few times, then it struggled to fly again. It suddenly blurred and moved toward Fang Linyan for 10 meters. After this blink, their distance was shortened to 30 meters! Its 2 compound eyes turned red due to pain and anger, and an angry “hissing” sound came from its mouthpart.
Facing the incoming cow mosquito, Fang Linyan continued to aim calmly, and he pulled the trigger again when it approached 20 meters.
After the shot, the Basic Shooting LV4 could already allow Fang Linyan to shoot wherever he wanted within 20 meters. He directly hit the center of the head of the cow mosquito and lifted up the chitin skeleton that protected the brain. The gray-white brain matter inside was exposed.
This shot also triggered the special effect of the Basic Shooting LV4, making the target slow by 25%. After the cow mosquito was hit by this shot, it was immediately stopped by the huge kinetic energy carried by the bullet. It continued to flutter its wings, but its flight speed was significantly reduced.
Fang Linyan turned and fled without thinking. With [Drone]’s perspective, he was not afraid of any surprise attack from the cow mosquito behind him.
However, Fang Linyan’s escape did not mean that he had no means to deal with the cow mosquito. The [Machine Gun Turret] placed beside had already fired in time! A storm of bullets was launched from the side!
Under the intensive firepower suppression, the agitated cow mosquito flew directly to the [Machine Gun Turret]. Its forelimbs possessed huge power as it destroyed the [Machine Gun Turret] in a few moves, but Fang Linyan had already thrown out another [Machine Gun Turret].
To make matters worse, after delaying for so long, the blood mixed in the bodily fluids of the cow mosquito also started to trigger. Its whole body trembled, and the flapping of its wings gradually became weak. Finally, after chasing more than 10 meters, it struggled on the ground, smashing the nearby furniture into pieces.
Fang Linyan stopped the [Machine Gun Turret], lest it ruined the compound eyes or mouthpart that could be sold for Galleons. Fang Linyan used the Lee Enfield Rifle to make 1 shot at a time, and the last shot hit its head and ended its pain.
After killing the cow mosquito, Fang Linyan sprinkled a handful of salt on it, then he took out a dagger and began to carefully cut the materials from its body. At this time, he finished it quickly as he was getting proficient in it.
At this time, Fang Linyan had planned to kill another magical creature and then leave, but the smell of the bodily fluid of the cow mosquito had attracted predators as its corpse didn’t decompose quickly.
So Fang Linyan calculated the time and found that it was almost the same, he left the [Machine Gun Turret] to cover his back and left the place with the materials.
During this hunting process, Fang Linyan almost died several times. He used up the remaining “porcupine” depleted uranium armor-piercing ammunition brought from the joint trial, and the supplies he brought were also consumed by about half.
However, hunting these magical creatures in the Westminster Abbey Area would also increase the reputation with the royal dragon knight, increasing to friendly (2500 points).
After returning to the square, Fang Linyan went to see Robbie and found that he was probably too exhausted, so he fell asleep in a military blanket. It seemed that he wouldn’t wake up so soon, so he walked to the street.
He didn’t walk very fast at this time as he was looking for something. After walking out a street, his face was filled with joy.
Because directly above the door of the house beside him, a triangular symbol was engraved on it. Its shape was not an equilateral triangle but more like a tree canopy or the barn roof with obtuse angle.
Fang Linyan stood at the door of the house and hesitated for a while, then he knocked on the door. It was early in the morning. After a while, a tired yawning voice said,
“Who is it?”
Fang Linyan said,
“I came to look for a grave.”
The person behind the door was obviously stunned, then opened the door and bent his waist deeply,
“Sorry, sir. There’s been a lot of trouble with Jack the Ripper recently, so I was late for business.”
Fang Linyan nodded and walked in,
“Take me to the fireplace.”
It was an old man who opened the door. He didn’t say much after hearing the words. He showed a very respectful attitude and led Fang Linyan inside the shop, then he walked into the basement.
There was a fireplace that looked very new. The old man pointed, and Fang Linyan gave him a shilling, then he grabbed a pinch of green powder in his hand and said loudly,
Then he threw it into the fireplace.
Immediately, a soft bang sound was heard, and immediately a green light rose up. It was flickering like a fire. After Fang Linyan stepped in, the surrounding scene changed quickly. Then, he found himself in a communal fireplace in Diagon Alley.
He hesitated for a while, then he was urged by a little dwarf beside with a somewhat impatient grunt, telling him to leave quickly. Otherwise, the person teleporting from behind would bump into him.
The thing Fang Linyan used was floo powder, which allowed users to shuttle back and forth between fireplaces connected to the Floo Network.
He learned to use the floo powder from Thermaplugg.
The price of floo powder was also not cheap. A spoonful cost 2 sicos (17 sicos = 1 Galleon). Not only that, if Fang Linyan wanted to use the Floo Network’s teleportation function, he still needed to pay another 300 common points, but this was better than the Leaky Cauldron’s way.
Next, Fang Linyan went to sell the harvest casting materials in the magical item shop, casting material shop and leather shop. Finally, he earned about 36 Galleons.
