The enemy's ambush was not refined, but it was vicious. First, a woman fired a shot at the Orc labourers Party Ace was escorting. If these fragile creatures died, their mission would fail. That was not all. The woman had deliberately paused before she pulled the trigger, for a very simple reason. The shot was aimed at the enemy's weakness, the place where they were most vulnerable but had no choice but to protect. Therefore, she was sure that the enemy MT would definitely save the Orc labourers. Indeed, that was what Reef did. With the shield in his hand, he stepped in front of the oblivious Orc. But the bullet shot by the woman unexpectedly exploded before hitting Reef, forming a vast net of sticky threads which tied Reef down in place! This was the first part of their plan. MTs were generally not very agile. Now that the MT's mobility was restricted, it was close to impossible for him to dodge. After that came the second part of their plan! The four people with the strongest firepower in their party, together with five other powerful contestants borrowed from three other parties, focused fire on Reef!! Among them were some who wielded Blood Weapons that could greatly reduce the healing effect on the enemy. The reason they acted together was to breach the enemy's defence from their strongest point! If even the MT was insta-killed, it was bound to be a heavy psychological blow to the remaining enemies, making their morale drop. After that, the encounter would simply become a one-sided hunt! The one who came up with this plan was definitely not a simple person. His plan was meticulous and logical, and he had skillfully analysed the psychological weaknesses of human beings. He truly believed that this plan was infallible and had no loopholes. They had already wiped out a party with this very plan and profited greatly! But….but! Plans could never keep up with changes. The joint strike of nine powerful contestants failed to kill the MT wielding the dark gold shield!! What's more, he showed no signs of falling into a state of near death or using recovery items!! "No way...!!!" The unexpected disruption in the plan caused momentary panic among the assailants. Little did they know that the party they were facing was a freakish dual-MT party. The moment Sheyan realised the ambushers' bold plan to insta-kill Reef, he immediately cast his 'Awakening Skill: Survival Mark' on Reef with a cold smirk. In addition, Reef's own 'Divine Blessing Aura' had abruptly increased his HP by 1500 points! "So naive.... You guys got lucky and managed to kill a mediocre MT with this method once, and you think it's a flawless plan that'll work all the time? You really think a second-rate tactic like this will work on our Reef?" Reef was a full-fledged MT, so his defence was extremely high to begin with. After Sheyan secretly used his 'Survival Mark' ability on him to help him share the damage burden, it truly did seem to the enemies like he was a monster who was fine after receiving the joint attack of nine people, only staggering a few steps back. Even more terrifying was the fact that Reef had instantly launched a counter attack after that. His shrunk his whole body behind the dark gold shield, but extended his right hand outside. The Nightmare Imprint on his chest glowed brilliantly, projecting the image of an exquisite cross tower shield.
