Chapter 73: Why Bother When They’re All Fake
What made Elizabeth feel the most helpless was that although Lugh’s runic ability was very crude, it was truly incomparably powerful.
Moreover, there was more than one such powerful runic ability. From the start of the battle until now, Elizabeth had personally witnessed that Lugh had at least eight or more powerful abilities.
How shocking was this?
Rune-masters in the rune world usually had one or two runes that were especially used for battle. The rest were only auxiliary runes.
Every time a level was raised, a new battle rune would be comprehended.
However, Lugh was only a two-star rune-master, yet he still had more than eight battle runes.
Elizabeth had never heard of such a thing.
She looked at Lugh as if he was a monster.
Just who was this man?
He was a little too powerful!
Right now, he only lacked knowledge regarding the usage of runes. Once he went to the Rune Academy to study, wouldn’t his strength soar to the skies?
Elizabeth was convinced. This time, she was completely convinced.
After witnessing Lugh’s strange methods, she could not help but lower her proud head.
“Break for me!” Anthony continuously roared in anger.
The relief that enveloped a radius of several hundred meters was finally broken by him.
Like a glass cover, it shattered inch by inch and finally disappeared.
“Not bad, you can actually break my illusion.”
Lugh smiled and casually set up another illusion.
He felt that his spiritual power was still very abundant and didn’t seem to have been exhausted.
He didn’t know that ever since he had gotten the time rune and the fate rune, his brain had been expanded to an unimaginable extent.
Other people’s brains were like a small stream, at most a small river in comparison.
A higher level rune-master would be a river, a lake, and a sea.
But Lugh’s brain was a vast ocean.
Thus, his spiritual power skyrocketed to an extremely terrifying level.
Anthony was dumbfounded.
Just now, he had expended so much effort to break through an illusion, and now, the other party had set up another one without a hitch?
This was too easy.
Anthony was so angry that he almost spat out a mouthful of blood.
If this continued, sooner or later he would die from exhaustion.
He took a few deep breaths and began to calm down the surging emotions in his heart.
“No, this is an illusion.”
“But it’s different from the illusion in the Rune Academy. Everything here is fake. The illusion is fake, and so is the person who attacked me. Since the person is fake, then I won’t be harmed at all…”
“If that’s the case, why would I waste so much effort?”
“I have no need to guard against the opponent’s attack. I don’t even need to break through his illusionary realm. I just need to stay in the environment. Not only can I take the opportunity to recover my physical strength and spiritual power, but the opponent will also exhaust his spiritual power by constantly maintaining the illusionary realm.
“Then he will definitely die…”
Anthony suddenly understood.
He sat cross-legged on the ground and did not think about destroying Lugh’s illusions or blocking his attacks.
Lugh, who was outside the illusion environment, laughed. “This is more fun.”
He did not expect Anthony to actually realize that the attacks in the illusions were fake.
The only use was to test Anthony’s runic ability. He could not kill Anthony.
But because Anthony had seen the steel bar and knife rain in the beginning, he subconsciously treated everything as a real attack. When he thought everything in front of him was real, then everything was real. Although the damage from these things couldn’t hurt Anthony’s body, it could hurt his spirit and soul.
Spirit was an extremely mysterious existence.
A person could be blindfolded, with their hands and feet bound and then cut on his wrist, creating the sound of dripping water. That person’s heart would think that the sound of dripping water was the blood flowing from the wound on his wrist, and he would become very frightened.
That person would worry that he would die from excessive blood loss, and he would indeed die from excessive blood dripping, but in reality, there was not a single wound on his body.
This was the function of the mind.
The mind could kill the body.
Lugh moved. It was time to start the second step of the heart movement.
Everything had just begun.
Anthony thought that it was enough to see through the essence of the illusion. Little did he know that the illusion was far more than that.
Lugh’s real body walked into the illusion and silently merged with his illusion environment.
It was the same trick as before. Ice blades, steel bars, thorn vines, and fireballs pounced on Anthony.
“You still want to lie to me?” Anthony sneered, his face full of disdain.
He had already been fooled. Did the other party think that he would be fooled again?
That was why he didn’t even have any defense at the moment.
Because he knew that this was an illusion. As long as he wasn’t deceived by such an illusion, then these attacks wouldn’t harm him at all.
On the contrary, once he thought that this was real, then he would be deluded by the illusion.
An illusion could also become real.
This was the power of the mind.
Once, when Anthony was studying at the Rune Academy, his teacher had told him so.
He himself was a person with a strong heart, how could he be swayed by the illusion?
Therefore, when he saw that everything was an illusion, Anthony was very calm.
He actually showed his dislike of Lugh, a weak man who only knew how to use illusions.
Lugh wouldn’t dare to have a real fight with him.
