The first thing Zwei noticed were the sound. A high pitched scraping from metal that's being dragged against the stone floor, or so he assumed.

He suddenly realized something. He was afraid. He was genuinely scared! But not of the boss, not at all, but of dying. He was really afraid of dying. Here in the death game, where he had lived for some time now. The thing that shocked him the most though, wasn't that he was afraid to die in the real world, but he was afraid to lose _this_ world. This crazy, scary place was the place he lived. He lived more here than he'd ever lived in the real world! The thought were morbid at best! And the Irony of it all made him almost burst out in laughter! But he didn't let himself, instead he left out a low chuckle, and let a almost sly smile pass his lips. He just had to tell the guys if he survived!

Though, the fright didn't stop him from doing his job, and as the boss appeared, he prepared himself for the battle. The boss suddenly shifted from defense to offence, and dashed against the group. "To the left!" he heard wolf yell, and he moved instantaneously, having a good reaction time. Then wolf said; "The enemy has made the first move, get your throwing knives ready, Zwei and Black. Rapiers, get ready to block. Once he turns around, we make our move for the offensive. The three of us will block his attack and the two of them will aim for the eyes."

Zwei had to change weapon to do this, and he quickly started browsing his menu to fins his throwing knives. He was certainly not the best at throwing them, and black is way better than him, he knew. But he should still be good enough for the task handed to him. The only downside to this tactic, was that once he were done using his throwing knives, then he had to browse his menu to equip his sword again.

He crouched and continued browsing his menu.

The boos had apeared and charged headfirst into wolfs group,
Vyse took the lead and screamed for us to follow him to attack it's unprotected back, all team members nodded.

We ran and saw an opening,

I charged ahead with my speed i was almost a black flash across the room as i attacked the boss in it's back,
my blade shined intense blue light.
Vopal strike! Nick yelled and his attack came down on the boss.

Black had just heard Wolf call out to pair his attacks up with Zwei, who had just come in, when he heard an eerie grinding of metal on the ground. He turned to see The Dragon Slayer standing in between the two groups. "Perfect positioning" he thought when suddenly then boss had started to rush towards his group. He heard Wolf yell "To the left" and immediately dove out of the way of the behemoth's attack.

He was getting ready to throw the first knife as he looked back and saw Zwei going through the menu looking for his throwing knives. So after landing he jumps back next to Zwei and steadies his aim so they can both attack at once.

Zuloo enveloped the massive man with his group. A few from his group loosed throwing daggers and blades testing his armor and defenses. As the massive dragon slayer charged towards Wolf's group the second group that Zuloo was in took advantage of attacking from the rear. Zuloo charged with his group. "If the other group is guarding from an attack, we should press the offensive from his flank!" Zuloo shouted.

Zuloo brought his Massive hammer in a lateral swing. Aiming for the inside of his left knee. Giant's had to have a weak point Zuloo thought. "Aim for the soft spots, being so large has to have some draw back."

Asuna was hoping that would certainly be not her last battle. Truthfully she did not wish to die in any battle situation at all. She, like everybody else, did not want to die in this cruel world. Ironically this world was originally created to be a place where one could literally escape from reality and find a place where they could create their own destiny. Now SAO has become a literal prison, with lots of unknown factors involved and any mistake could mean death. This was no time to let fear envelope her being, this was the time to channel that fear into fighting spirit. She knew that she was not the only person fighting against the overwhelming fear in the boss room, which made her feel reassured.

When Asuna heard Wolf shout out for their group to move to the left, she obeyed without a split second of hesitation. In boss fights, there always had to be a leader to guide everybody's formation and make sure the attack and block orders were organized. It looked like everybody would be relying on Wolf for that guidance, especially since it seemed like he was a major player from the previous boss floor fights. She saw that it was advantageous to have the boss' attention be towards one group, since the other group could take the opportunity to strike the boss' back.

Right now she held her rapier defensively, waiting to block and react. This moment was certainly not the time for her to be going on the offensive . She took a brief glance towards Mizuko and gave the other rapier user an acknowledging nod. Asuna was hoping that the other girl would understand that they would have to work together on timing their switches and teamwork.

Mizuko felt a shiver crawl up her spine as the boss revealed himself, and her fingers automatically tightened on her rapier as she held it up, in defense. "To the left, everyone!" she heard Wolf yell and saw as everyone obeyed as so she. She listened carefully as Wolf gave them all directions. "The enemy has made the first move, get your throwing knives ready, Zwei and Black. Rapiers, get ready to block. Once he turns around, we make our move for the offensive. The three of us will block his attack and the two of them will aim for the eyes". He continued.

Mizuko felt herself trembling and shaking with nervousness but before it took over, she quickly pushed it away with a simple thought. "No time to be nervous. Just observe the boss and his attack skills. The most important in battle. Know your opponent." she thought and her shaking stopped. At the corner of her eye, she saw the other rapier user who glanced at her and nodded, as if trying to send a signal to her. Nodding back she got ready to attack and knew that she and the other rapier user would have to have excellent teamwork and perfect timing when switching. "Quiet a challenge your giving us here, Kayaba Akihiko" she thought and her smile returned.

(I am really sorry for posting the same picture again but I have looked for over three hours and I can't find anything even remotely similar. :()
Hits to Kill: 12

As he The Dragon Slayer ran foreword the two groups worked in unison. One group dodging to the left and the others were approaching The Dragon Slayer from behind. Every step that Dragon Slayer took made everything shake, the walls, the floor, even the air seemed to vibrate with every step that he took. As he approached his destination he seemed to speed up instead of slowing down. A single voice broke through the noise and said “The enemy has made the first move, get your throwing knives ready Zwei and Black. Rapier, get ready to block. Once he turns around, we make our move for the offensive. The three of us will block his attack and the two of them will aim for the eyes”.

Just before the boss got to where Wolf, Zweo, Blacknite, Asuna, and Mizuko he dropped his left knee and it hit the ground with a booming clash. The armor on his knee dug into the ground and stopped the left side of his body in the space of a few meters leaving a gash in the floor, while the right side kept going. Instead of going straight though the huge body of the man rotated and he brought his arm back, slightly, and punched with his sword hand towards the group of players. The spikes on the D-Guard of his blade headed straight for Wolf, the rest of the blade extending out wards away from his body cutting through the air towards the rest of the group.

Throwing knives from two different directions came at him, one going where he should have been, another flying over his head. A third hit him in the back and impaled him but did little damage and only broke The Dragon Slayers concentration for a moment, but the strikes afterwards did much more. The huge war hammer that Zuloo used made contact with the side of his right knee, pushing it slightly further along the ground through the force of the swing. The blades cut deep gashes into The Dragon Slayer taking a significant portion of his life down. Then the rest of the group that had been further away from him arrived and got their damage in. Yuuki does a slash against the giants ankle and goes for a second strike when the left hand of the boss reaches arced around his back and slams into her propelling her sideways. She slams into Nick only after he gets in a sword skill into the back the boss and they both slide on the ground a little ways. With this he gave a roar and leaned into the punch that was heading straight for Wolf.

"A punch!" Wolf thought. "Perfect. I could block this one by myself."

"Rapiers! Get ready to strike." Wolf placed his sword above and behind his head, getting ready to strike down vertically. A punch, rather than a swing, is easy to manipulate. They would've needed more people to defend against the swing because the blade takes up so much room and swinging would've covered a lot more ground.

Instead, a punch can only cover a certain amount of space and to attempt to stab with the side of the blade, instead of the tip, won't do any damage at all. The only thing Wolf was worried about was the spikes. Lucky for him, they were traveling in a straight path, it was easy to see where it was going. Think of it like catching a ball versus catching a boomerang. "Run up his arm! Fire your knives!"

Wolf leaped up and put all of his strength into redirecting the punch into the ground. <<Avalanche>> was the move he had just executed. It was almost perfect too. Curse his long body. Wolf took a light scrape to the leg as he redirected the punch downward. The forward motion brought Wolf on top of his fist when it collided with the ground.

"Thank goodness for being a tank." Wolf watched as the green bar above his head slightly lowered. "Now it's time to watch carefully," Wolf whispered to himself. With the rapiers and the knife throwers being even farther apart, Wolf had to be careful as to where he was positioned.

"Let's end him quickly."

Ravus spent the better part of the afternoon continuing to train. The idea to further explore sprouted, however this idea was quickly crushed during his last fight against a solo mob. It was another bastard sword wielding robot humanoid, being slightly exhausted he made a small mistake while attacking giving the mob a chance to strike vertically down at Ravus. His speed saved him, allowed him to move the blade up to block, his right hand tight on the grip and his left hand moved up to support the blade by placing it on the flat side. The problem soon showed itself as the bastard sword didn't stop at Ravus's blade, the durability hitting critical and shattering into blue shards. His eyes going wide but he had no time to be stunned, pushing as hard as he could backwards he knew it wouldn't be enough to escape but it might minimize the damage, and it did. As the tip of the blade cut downwards across his chest he winced as his life began to drop, and so did his balance. His life was now in the red, he was without a weapon and on the ground stunned, for the first time in a while he felt the fear of death. His mind was racing as he tried to figure out how to survive when a grey blur launched itself over him and into the mob. Tackling it to the ground and finishing off the last of it's HP.

Ravus couldn't help but let out an audible laugh, how was he so foolish? He completely forgot about his pet, he had it standing simply so he could practice a bit more against this solo creature. Though, he never gave an attack command so why did it attack? It didn't matter, as he pushed himself up he opened up his menu and pulled out a chunk of meat and his backup sword, tossing the meat to his pet. "Good job Khorne. Lets call it a day..." He had finally caught his breath, glancing at the clock it was only two, a lot earlier than he wanted to head back but he didn't have anymore swords after this one and needed to fight to get back.

It took him about an hour to get back to town, as he was being extra careful and avoiding more difficult fights. Once in town he got his armor repaired, and found a replacement blade that should last him a while. While selling his scrap and performing his errands he overheard a few players talking about the group that went after the boss. Glancing down to his pet he smirked "Guess we missed it again.." He also heard a few people talking about a special event the NPCs on the Second floor are hinting at. "Well how about we check that out instead?" Heading to the teleporter he called out "Teleport, Greydall." vanishing into a blue flash.

"Let's end him quickly."

As the words left the man's mouth, Yuuki felt delighted. After recieving a heavy blow and taking precious time to heal it, Yuuki was now raring to go. When the dragon slayer's fist had collided with the ground, stunning it momentarily, the rapiers and knife throwers attacking. Yuuki flanked Nick on the right side as they drew into an attack. Yuuki aimed for the pressure point on its neck, driving the tip of the katana through it, jumping back as she finished the attack. Other players relentlessly striked, dealing blows and getting them theirselves.

This was it.

Asuna sees that the large boss was targeting both groups at once. Its fist was aiming towards wolf while its blade was going towards the rest of her group. With the blade quickly and steadily going towards them, Asuna decides to take this opportunity to strike. She crouches her upper body down to barely duck under the blade and rushes towards The Dragon Slayer. For a while, she had been working on improving her sprint skill and was confident in that skill.

She sprints forth at the boss and gets in close enough range at it. She doesn't waste a split second and launches a flurry of linear strikes towards the boss' knee. Asuna was not certain how many strikes she delivered because her rapier's blade was not visible whenever she executed her linear technique. Knowing that the risk of a counter attack from the boss is high, she kicked backwards in attempt to escape its attack range. She continued to sprint and jump backwards, making sure not to turn her back towards the boss. A mistake she did not want to make was having her back at the boss and not being able to visibly see what the boss' counter attack was going to be.

"Switch!"

The shout was meant for Mizuko. Asuna was hoping that Mizuko would also take this oppurtunity to strike at the boss, however Asuna was worried whether or not her ally would be able to evade the boss' counter attack.

Zuloo took the time to focus on the boss's movements and his body language. he saw the boss motion for a punch, the giant figure on one knee like some sort of roman statue. Zuloo heard wolf as he was beginning to execute his next move. "Let's end him quickly."

Zuloo agreed even before the words left his mouth. Zuloo was already using the momentum of his hammer to its full advantage. Going form one side of the knee to the other. He would tear down the supports that made this hulking mass mobile. The mountain would slow to a crawling stop. "Press the attack while we have him tied up! Watch out for his free arm and stay clear of it!"

Zuloo's hammer swinging wildly from one side to the other of the same knee, shaking the large man with each swing.

The boss had started his next attack by rushing the group and dropping his left knee before thrusting his fist straight towards Wolf, then in mid animation wolf called out "Rapiers" Get ready to strike". Guessing that wolf could block the entire attack on his own. Black made sure that he and Zwei were out of the way of attack and seeing that Zwei had equipped the throwing daggers he called out "Ready... Throw!" and let loose the first of his throwing daggers towards the behemoths right eye right as Wolf shoved the bosses fist into the ground.

The assault had been a mild success with a few attacks hitting their mark, but the battle was far from over. The first group had launched a heavy second assault, and Zuloo was engaging the behemoth again too. "Hopefully they will keep him occupied for a a little bit.." he thought as he dropped to one knee and began scrolling through his menu for his sword. The throwing knives had been useful, but he needed to deal more damage.
