Kael went to the entrance of the cave to go deeper. It was five to ten floors or level that he wants to go. He traveled to the fifth floor without a problem. He managed to kill his way through and collected their cores. On the sixth floor, his enemies were the armored kobolds.
The kobolds attacked like there was no tomorrow. Due to their armors, they were fearless. The eyes glowed in bright red and they attacked like mad beasts. Their saliva drooled from their mouths.
Their armors were made to fit their body. It was like an armor made by them. They have a helmet that was perfectly fit to their head and a chest plate to cover their chest and backs. They also have handguards in their arms and knee guards in their knees.
Kael attacked them and they were thrown by force.
"They were a bit troublesome. This will take time to kill them.", he said to himself.
Kael slashed with all his strength and their armors sparked every time he slashed it. Kael's sword will be dulled slowly if this continues.
They have a weak point where the gaps in their armors are located. He has to be cunning enough to outwit his enemy.
The enemies amounted to ten but they were a bit troublesome compared to his past battles.
Ting! Ting! Ting! Ting!
They have a two-handed sword and they were pretty strong to lift it. Kael was lucky that he has enough dexterity to evade them. Dexterity was connected to strength, specifically the leg strength in the movement and the arm strength to attack speed. The difference was that the dexterity was a little bit of control not only strength. The control plus the strength to back it is the dexterity. Strength was also linked to other traits. For example vitality; If you were having a great physique, then it was thanks to body strengthening activities. That will lead to greatly enhancing your vitality, your defense, and stamina.
Kael strikes with piercing thrusts. Slashes were predictable and thrusts were faster and accurate. He was attacked by a swing and he evaded at the right time. They were perplexed by his actions thus they attacked faster. Kael pierced one enemy on the shoulders.
He was surrounded but not on a pinch. His enemies were sluggish due to their heavy two-handed swords. They were strong but their mastery of sword was of a newbie. Their attacks were predictable so Kael evaded leisurely. It was the stamina that was the problem. He attacked with another piercing thrust and then slashed his enemy on the neck. It was the kobold whom he thrust on the shoulders that he killed. Kael then darted every time he initiated a thrust. Kael pierced the gaps in their armors.
Sounded the sword after he thrust the neck of the kobold. The eyes that were open were closing slowly after he pierced his neck. Kael then retreated to gain distance. He ran and then struck in-between his fleeing. He was making feigns and counter attacks to them that were chasing him.
"I have to make them weary first. With their heavy armors, they will be the ones to be weary first than me later on.", he said in his mind.
He ran and they were getting slow. Kael then slowly attacked them one by one. He was attacking wiser this time. The enemies attacked but they were panting this time around. He pounced to them like a tiger that found its prey.
He managed to kill five by his sword. They were no match for him who's mastery of sword was of a master. He only lacks experience on the battlefield but it was little by little, he was learning at a steady pace. He was also learning a bit fast. He was cunning and was greedy of knowledge. That was the reason he wants to read books and learn from his father. He was also an expert in the past.
Kael then attacked the remaining five. He struck them with his might.
He shouted as he initiated his slash. They were killed by him. He slashed the gaps of their armors and they were cut to pieces.
Shing! Shing! Shing!
The five remaining enemies were disembodied. Their arms flew as he cuts them. The battle didn't last for long and he removes their cores, as well as their armors.
He puts it in his backpack and then moves to the seventh floor.
