Part 14: WuTang Revengeance.
(Forgive me, and farewell. Ill be with you all soon enough Wait for me )
Im really too old to do this, so Ill only do it once.
And my footwork!
To your sight And to your mind !
... Ha ha This is WuTangs final technique
Translation: Hall of Mirrors.
...Okay, not really. inthesto called it The Whirlwind Fang.
But, youll soon understand With your skills, it wont take very long.
I am just going to pray for their souls
In other words: I am just going outside and may be some time.
Yuan, forgive me
Forgive me, Sammo
As some people in the thread have discussed, the Masters training affects which student will survive the attack on the dojo. Its a dirty trick on the games part, given that most people are likely to try and spread the training out instead of piling it on one student (despite the chapter intro).
As you may expect, our goal here is to go have some harsh, violent words with the practitioners of Yi Po Men Kung Fu.
I understand Are you ready?
Come on now!
Lets go, Li
Yeah, thats the spirit! The more the merrier!
Well, I do have an appointment
Battle in China will be playing non-stop for the vast majority of this update; we have a lot of fools between us and Odi Wang Lee. Oh, and I should point out that one big difference well be seeing is when the chosen pupil joins; Li is the only one who will show up in time for this little fight.
These guys are massive chumps by the way. They have 32 HP, so even Lis weaker moves will murder them.
Master!! The WuTang Master!
Hello, dancing fodder.
Discussing experience values for this chapter is somewhat pointless; practically none of the fights are repeatable, aside from the tigers out in the bamboo forest. The main thing to remember is that these guys are practically worthless.
Lis default abilities are actually reasonably usable if you somehow mess up her training and stop her learning the Masters techs. Monkey Hand is definitely no Monkey Fist though.
SheXingQuan is the poor womans Squirrel Kick. Her last move is rather a tricky one to use, and well see why later on.
I choose to believe that this is not a battle cry, but a scream of terror.
The instructor is more powerful than his underlings, but only has 100 HP. Hes also worthless experience-wise. Slaughter him and move on.
Well, I did promise there would be tigers.
This is the only encounter before the end of the dojo thats worth good experience, having a value of 9. Im sure theres a lion/tigers share joke in this somewhere.
Their defence kind of sucks though.
Now that were done with the special rules of the Masters training sessions, our chosen pupil will learn whichever of the Masters techs they dont already know before being able to get any of their unique ones. So Li will learn the remaining two (including Fusha No Sha, remember) at levels 9/10, and then start on her own techs at level 11.
Another tiger, two mooks and an instructor later, we can actually get through the door. There are seriously a lot of fights in here.
Theyre just speed bumps. (There are items in those pots, including a single-use attack item. Nothing great.)
Well, for how heinous he is, I kinda like Odis taste in decor.
Though perhaps he could control his pets a little better.
Whatever the luck Lion Hand claims to be based on actually is, Li seems to have plenty of it.
+20 Speed for the Master and Li now.
Three more soon-to-be-corpses in this room.
Oh, and theres a hidden item. If you check the table, theres another Fukahire Bun.
The next room has the first encounter thats actually reasonably dangerous if you stand in the wrong spots. (Its experience value is 2.)
This is one such wrong spot. This attack does a good 80 damage, half the Masters health and a third of Lis.
Li retaliates with the only charged move she knows; ShuiNiaoJiao takes a while to perform and only works on enemies three spaces away, but it hits extremely hard. It can be quite valuable if used properly.
I may be misremembering this, but I think that if you avoid triggering the previous fight, this room will continually throw enemies at you. But this chapter can be beaten with no grinding at all, so why bother?
Coming through, kitty.
These guys are still pretty easy, and actually weaker than the instructors weve been facing. You can attack and break the table in this fight, but its not an enemy and doing so has no benefit beyond letting you move more freely.
Ah, good. No matter which student survives, they should end up at level 9 without grinding.
You see, we are nearly at the end of the dojo.
Theres just a tiger and two more mooks between us and the last room. At this point, you may wish to give all the best equipment to the student instead of the Master. Both because the student is outpacing the Master, and for Reasons.
Oh look, he has a throne.
So youre Odi Wang Lee
Greetings Im impressed that your little sidekick is still alive. My congratulations.
I could have them all attack you at once, but that would not be fair, would it? And I do so dislike unfair situations.
You had no problem sending a gang of these blockheads to our home!
Ah, you refer to my small army of grunts. They are far too weak, alone, to handle any meaningful task. These here, on the other hand, are my favorites! Allow me to introduce you
Yi Xi, Er Xi. Dong Jia, Xia Jia. Nan Jia, Bei Jia. Chan Lin and Shan, the Sisters. And
Yes, he does have everyone stand up when he says their names. I trust you can do without the other half-dozen images to figure out hes going up toward the head of the table.
And if you cant beat them, you obviously wont be able handle me (sic) Now!
So yes, we have to fight four pairs, one trio and an old man before we can get to the actual boss fight. This chapter really backloads all the combat.
As mentioned, make sure Li has the better equipment now. (99 total speed. )
You can pick a fight by trying to talk to the next set of combatants, or by trying to talk to Odi directly.
The first two get promptly kicked to death.
The second two arent far behind them.
As you may be guessing, the first half of this little gauntlet is just to ease you into things.
Its the second pair of fat dudes that actually kick things into gear and start becoming threatening.
If you arent lucky with your stun procs, this move in particular can cause some hassle. 60-ish damage, comes out fast, dude on the right loves spamming it. (Take him out first.)
The guy on the left has a chance to drop this interesting item, for those of you who like to savescum such things.
Yuan would probably have liked this. As it is, I just stick with the Tiger Gauntlet.
Indeed, Master. How about my favorite pretty sisters?
Its also worth noting that totally-not-the-Magus-sisters have the Dragon Suit, which follows the same vein as the gauntlet. Specifically its Chan who drops it.
Shan and Chan arent too tough, though the latter has a weak counterattack.
Lin, on the other hand Shes genuinely dangerous if you make the mistake of standing in range of Twin Swords. If you attack her up close, do it on the diagonal.
Youve waited enough, Yi Bei Kou Its your turn!
Since were fighting him on his own, Yi Beu Kou serves as something of a miniboss right before Odi. He has 480 HP and can petrify you if you stand diagonal to him, though not at close range.
Hes much more likely to just take away all your hand techs for a while.
Not that Li really cares about such things.
(Rest-of-update video here!)
Alright, now we just have to
Oh, hi there.
Hahahahaha! Meet Sou Xiu and Man Xiu! They have mastered the An Sha Quan, a type of assassination Kung Fu. They could even kill me! As such, I am always focused, and can never relax! This is the only way
Ah yes, the incredibly powerful force of constant paranoia.
(... Li Ill take these two by myself Lee is all yours!)
(Hes trying to tire us out Im not as young as I once was. Ive lost my endurance.)
We actually flashback through the entire demonstration here, this time without sound.
You ? YOU !? Hah even the great Master cant beat old age, hmm? Hmhmhm hahahahah! Bwahahahaha!!
Hah Foolish child
WuTangs final technique
A pointless gesture!
Li gets a one-time use of her ultimate technique here, and its just as fantastic as youd expect. Odi Wang Lee has 688 HP, so that took off over a third of his health.
Odi has a few nasty tricks up his sleeve, so feel free to go nuts with your healing items.
Li has a relatively easy time of this fight, honestly. She hits like a truck and can take a few hits without needing to heal.
In the end, she flip-kicks off Odis kidney to set up the finisher.
And here we go
Kicking a dude across the room, through a throne, into a gong. In slow motion.
You became even stronger
... I believe you could properly pass my skills down through future generations
Wha!? Y-yeah, as if!
No Ive lived long. Maybe too long. Your growth has helped me keep going this far Li Your heart is as warm as the sun Never ever lose that
Now Ill go deliver the message
The credits begin, but we have one small scene left.
Finally I managed to bust this rock. Could I be like you some day, gramps? Someday
And you, you old bastard! Because Im the
And so Li continues her training in the noble art of WuTang Kung Fu.
She tries to help out the townsfolk, as her mentor once did.
Remembering well the time they shared.
And so another story comes to an end.
With three chapters now completed, we must once again decide on our next destination. Plan Convergence would lead to Akiras Mecha chapter next; are we sticking with that, or going elsewhere? And dont forget about names!
Oh, and expect the Yuan/Sammo bonus update sometime soon.
