Videogame: I Began With Top-tier Luck - Chapter 67
Chapter 67 – Ice Mine
Fortunately, Lin Shuang did not know the ridicule in Qian Shanxue’s heart. Otherwise, he would definitely spread out his hands and humblebrag. He didn’t want this to happen either, but he was the person favored by fate.
Lin Shuang looked at Qian Shanxue, who was depressed by his answer, and patted her shoulder helplessly. “Don’t be depressed. I was just lucky. It’s already two in the afternoon. If we can’t find the Ice Mine before the sun sets, the two of us will have to spend the night in the snow.”
The depressed Qian Shanxue finally chose to forgive Lin Shuang’s “offensiveness”. After all, the difference between humans was greater than the difference between humans and pigs. If she continued to struggle with Lin Shuang’s luck, then she could only stay in Lin Shuang’s shadow for the rest of her life and never stand out.
“Let’s go. We’re still an hour or so away from the Ice Mine. If we’re fast, we might be able to get the energy crystal and leave the Thousand Islands Snow Mountain before dark.” Qian Shanxue rubbed her throbbing temples, then she headed towards the Ice Mine without looking back.
After being confused by Qian Shanxue for a while, Lin Shuang, who was dumbfounded, saw that Qian Shanxue was walking further and further away, about to disappear into the snow. He could not be bothered to think about what had happened to Qian Shanxue. He hurriedly chased after Qian Shanxue’s disappearing back.
Due to the Cold Resistance Bear Robe, the two of them were no longer afraid of the extremely cold temperature of the Thousand Islands Snow Mountain. After more than an hour of traveling, and walking past the cliffs covered in dark ice and killing dozens of wild monsters, Lin Shuang, who had reached Level 19, finally arrived at the periphery of the Ice Mine with Level 16 Qian Shanxue.
“This is the Ice Mine. Bored people have come here in the past, but because of their strength and warm measures, they were either killed by an unknown wild monster as soon as they entered, or they were frozen into ice sculptures not long after they arrived here because of the extremely cold weather.
“Therefore, although most people know that there’s such a hidden map in the Thousand Islands Snow Mountain, no one came here to clear this map.” Qian Shanxue explained the situation of the Ice Mine to Lin Shuang. After that, she did not say anything else and waited to enter the Ice Mine with Lin Shuang.
Lin Shuang looked at the bottomless Ice Mine with the corpses and ice sculptures of various creatures scattered around it. He was also 120% alert. After all, he was only one step away from success. He did not want to fail miserably. As the two of them cautiously stepped into the Ice Mine one after another, the system notification sounded.
[You have arrived at the hidden map: Ice Mine. Danger Level: Extremely Dangerous.]
It looked as dangerous as the mysterious cave in the Valley of Gods. Lin Shuang knew that the danger of this trip was definitely higher than the previous two dungeons. Therefore, he did not dare to be careless at all. Holding the Sword of God, he carefully began to explore the interior of the Ice Mine.
It was strange that the temperature in the Ice Mine was almost -100 degrees Celsius. The candlesticks on the rock walls on both sides of the mine showed no signs of extinguishing. He didn’t know what fuel it was made of, but it was so resistant to combustion. Moreover, no matter how much strength Lin Shuang used, he couldn’t pull it off the rock wall.
As the two of them entered the Ice Mine, the space inside became larger and larger. Even when they reached a wide underground karst cave, they did not see half a wild monster.
“Qian Shanxue, didn’t you say that people who entered this place would be attacked by wild monsters? Why can’t we see half a wild monster after walking for so long?”
Qian Shanxue looked at the dead silent Ice Mine around her and was confused too. According to the information she had heard, there were indeed very strange wild monsters in the Ice Mine. They could kill players without anyone noticing.
However, almost half an hour had passed since they entered the Ice Mine, and they were still standing here unharmed. Not only that, but they could not even see the figures of the wild monsters. It was really strange.
“I don’t know. Based on our speed and the path we’ve been traveling down, we should have reached the underground rock formation more than a thousand meters underground. But not to mention the figures of wild monsters, even the energy crystals in the Ice Mine are nowhere to be seen. It’s really a little abnormal.”
This strange situation made the two of them not dare to continue forward. They stood on the spot and thought about the specific reason for this abnormal situation.
As time passed, Lin Shuang seemed to have thought of something, and his eyes instantly lit up. He suddenly picked up the Sword of God and slashed at the void in front of him several times. Then, he looked in the direction of his attack with anticipation. Nothing in the first place, nothing in the second place, and still nothing in the third place.
Just as Lin Shuang thought that he had guessed wrong, the effect of the fifth and sixth attacks made him extremely excited. The fifth and sixth attack actually collided with the void after flying less than a hundred meters, and the standard value of damage to the wild monsters floated out.
Seeing this, Lin Shuang hurriedly continued to attack where the damage value floated up. After several slashes struck the void in front of Lin Shuang, a series of damage values floated up again.
At the same time, the surrounding environment began to crack and collapse like a broken mirror. As the surroundings collapsed, the real Ice Mine came into view. In the real Ice Mine, there were no permanently burning candlesticks or incomparably wide underground karst caves.
There were only a large number of fluorite that emitted fluorescent light, as well as several wild monsters that looked like the Venusaur that the Bulbasaur had finally evolved into. From the beginning to the end, the two of them did not enter a hundred meters of the Ice Mine. They were only walking dozens of meters of the Ice Mine.
[Magical Ice Frog]
[Skills: Dream Pollen, Arctic Wind]
[Introduction: The weakest wild monster living in the Ice Mine, the goalkeeper. Due to the environment, all kinds of senses in his body have long degenerated. To prevent themselves from being hunted by other creatures, they evolved the dream pollen that could make creatures several times stronger than them fall into an illusion.]
[Due to the lack of food, it was usually in a dormant state and would not wake up easily. It was a physically weak but high magic creature.]
The strange attributes of the Magical Ice Frog made Lin Shuang and Qian Shanxue speechless. In terms of strength, his body was extremely weak. It was weak, but it had a powerful skill like Dream Pollen. He was really a wonder in the wild monster world. Even among the many wild monsters Lin Shuang had seen before he was reborn, there were few that could compare to him.
