The first strike was a succes, but as he wanted to get a second one out nick looked to the left and saw yuuki flying towards him.
He was unable to dodge and she slammed into him, the slid across the floor and stopped a couple of meters from the boss.
Nick saw her HP bar and asked "are you okay?"

Before he'd gotten his answer Yuuki jumped up and ran towards the boss while healing herself.

She's a tough one he had to admit.

Nick jumped up and ran towards the left flank hoping to get a second attack in and deal more damage then last time.

Zwei finally got to equip his throwing knives, and having stacked up quite a few, he started hurling them towards the boss. He tried to aim for it's eyes, but the task was more than hard enough, and it didn't help with the boss's constant flailing about.

The boss fell to one knee, and punched with his swordhand against wolf. The result of that was that the rest of his sword came towards his group. He had to dodge, as the throwing knives couldn't handle to block that kind of a sword.

He ran towards the blade, and right as it almost hit the group, he fell to his knees and skidded below the sword. He gasped as the sword passed over him, and the air pressure nailed him to the ground. but the sword passed him, and he were now safe. He didn't waste any time, and got right up and continued to throw his knives. He charged them as good as he could, but he knew that it wouldn't matter if they didn't hit him, so he used as much time as he could aiming at the soft spots in the boss's neck armor. Trying to hit where the helmet ended, and his chest plate started.

Hits to Kill: 9

The shout came from the bottom of the Dragon Slayers chest and shook the very soul of everyone there. The Dragon Slayer was not fast but was extremely powerful. His punch came at Wolf full force, the blades on the guard of the sword travelling like lasers towards his chest. Wolf performed the skill «Avalanche» and tried redirecting the fist downwards. It worked, sending most of the force of the punch downwards, but not all. The blades where sent into the ground but the fist in the guard made contact with Wolf causing some damage to his health and pushing him back a distance from the sheer force of the punch. Wolf was so certain that he could block the punch on his own he had not seen the blade slicing through the air beside him headed for the rest of the group. Luckily the rest of the group were paying attention and avoided the blade. Showing incredible timing and agility they slide under the blade, it only missing them by mere inches.

Taking advantage of the blade passing overhead Asuna and Zwei moved in for their attack. Asuna let loose a barrage of «Linear» strikes towards the boss’s knee. The minute her cool down was done at the completion of her strike she yelled switch but the call went unanswered. Mizuko was still on the other side of the blade and had no way to get there in time and so just stood hopeless as the tip of the blade slammed into the ground in front of her. Taking advantage of the break in attackers Zwei threw several blades at the boss’s neck, not doing much damage but managing to stun the Dragon Slayer long enough for Yuuki to come from the other side and land a second strike of her own doing significant damage. The cry of anger from the Dragon Slayer becoming that of pain as a throwing knife from Blacknite sliced the air beside his head nicking him in the forehead. The knife obscuring the vision of the boss so as to make him unaware that Nick was flanking him.

Vyse switching weapons only slightly out of danger could only hope that someone would distract the Dragon Slayer enough so as to keep him from coming in his direction. His hopes where answered when Zuloo attacked again with his huge War Hammer. He got one attack on the other leg when the boss had had enough. He used his free hand to grab Zuloo and threw him against the ground slightly to side of Wolf. Zuloo landed in a cloud of smoke and dust that sprayed over the players nearby. Taking the chance to use the cover of the smoke The Dragon slayer stood up and used his left hand again to life one of the columns out of the ground nearby. Then using it almost like a club he swept the area in front of him with the improvised weapon. The huge piece of stone slowly, but inevitably heading for the group. His sword arm was lifted out and swung opposite of the column as if to be a counter weight for the large block of stone. Like a top he begun to swing his arms around him using his body as a focal point. The Dragon Slayer looked on and seemed to smile as the new weapon approached the group.

Wolf had two options but immediately chose the latter. "EVERYONE," Wolf enormous voice reverberated across the battlefield. "GET AS CLOSE AS YOU CAN. THEN BLOCK AT THE SAME TIME!" This strategy required a lot of team work. Vyse, Yuuki, and Nick were behind the Dragon Slayer, in the way of the oncoming blade. Zwei, Mizuko, and Black were in front of the monster, in the way of the oncoming pillar.

"Zuloo." Wolf grabbed the arm of the equally sized being as he landed on the ground. "Now we strike!" Wolf lead the was as they headed towards the left, the Dragon Slayer's right foot was the target. The six of them blocking at the same time will buy the heavy hitters enough time to knock the beast onto the ground. Asuna was the closest to the vantage point. "Biri biri! Aim for the chest! Go for pressure, not for power!"

It was a three on offense, six on defense, attack strategy. Attacking with two weapon simultaneously significantly weakens the attack. It's the difference between jumping off of two legs, and then jumping off of one leg twice. The latter is the current situation. "Zuloo," Wolf talked normally since they were in the vicinity of each other. "Aim high for the back of the ankle, right where it meets the calf muscle. I'll aim low."

They finally got close, 4 seconds have passed. Wolf arrived at the preferred destination and lowered his entire body into the most powerful, rotating swing he will every conjure up. "ARGH!" Wolf let out a battle cry that probably boiled the bloods of his entire team. By this time, they should be blocking. And by this time, Asuna should have PUSHED his chest and Zuloo should have swung along side Wolf.

"Let's see how this turns out."

Hearing Wolf call out "Get as close as you can and then block at the same!" Black thought to himself "This is not going to end well. If I time it correctly I will have just enough time to change back to my sword before the column comes across."

"This plan requires everybody here to block and if I back out to switch to my sword it might not work. I gotta do this for my friends, I can't let them down, not now, not ever." Following Wolf's order he rushed as fast as he could towards the boss hoping to have enough time to switch weapons to get to the closest point of the column to the dragon slayer's hand, giving him the most time to switch weapons.

Zuloo's life bar was fast approaching yellow after being thrown. After wolf helping him up he stood with the man getting ready for what was to come.

"Aim high for the back of the ankle, right where it meets the calf muscle. I'll aim low."

Zuloo understood this and matched the mans movements timing his massive hammer with the mans massive sword.

With the approaching swings there where horrifying grunts coming from both men.

"YAAAAAHHHHHH"

Followed by what sounded like Metal crushing metal with an awkward crunch underneath it.

Zwei only had throwing knives. What the heck would he do? his thoughts raced. He knew that if he could get out his sword and block it too, then maybe they would be able to stop the attack. "holy crap, holy crap, holy crap, HOLY CRAP!" He started low, and yelled it out the last time. He ran to where he calculated the column would be furthest from the dragonslayer. He knew that by doing so, he would gain some extra seconds, because the swing would be slower at that point. The downside to this plan, was that the swing would also be more powerful there too.

He quickly started changing weapons, and at the same time prepared himself at the move he tried to pull. It was do or die.

The Dragon Slayers blade hurtled towards the three remaining group members. With Zuloo on the offensive, their defence would be significantly weaker. Sword now in hand, Vyse looked to his comrades, "Get ready! This one's going to hit hard!".

Knowing what was about to happen didn't deter Vyse at all. The attack was inevitable. His best chance was to stand with his fellow warriors and face the challenge head on. His grip on the hilt of his blade tightened, and he lowered his body, preparing for the attack that was about to collide with him. If his teammates came through with their defence as well, they should be able to block the attack well enough to follow up with a counter. "Here we go.."

Asuna could see some of her allies being hurt by the boss and felt worried about them. However she knew she couldn't spare any emotions right now. She was supposed to focus solely on working together with the others to take down the boss. Out of the rest of her allies, she was the closest to the dragon slayer. Asuna heard Wolf tell her to aim for the dragon slayer's chest, meaning that she would need to have a really good sprinting start in order to jump that high.

She crouches her upper body again and sprints ahead with her rapier forward. The lowering of her body was meant to maximize her sprinting and to duck from any incoming projectiles. Within seconds she is close enough to the boss and jumps up.

"HAH!"

Her rapier's blade turns a green color as she strikes the boss with a forward thrust at its mid lower chest area. Her running start was able to gain her enough momentum to jump high, but not high enough to get her to aim at the boss' exact chest midpoint (considering that the boss is really tall). As was instructed of her, she was going more for pressure than power. Asuna's timing should have matched with wolf's and zuloo's attacks.

After her attack on the boss, she lands on the ground with her two feet and does not waste a split second in trying to get away from the boss as far as possible. As she did before, she kicks off the ground backwards and does a backward sprint. Fortunately she had been used to sprinting backwards since that was how she fought against monsters and the humanoids on the fourth floor.

After nick got up he ran towards the back of the boos but stopped mid-way as he saw him grab a pillar and tore it out of the floor,
he was going to use it as a weapon.

D-Damn. He thought but ran towards him, hoping to flank him.

The boss started swinging the pillar towards wolfs group and the swords towards his own group.
He grabbed his sword with both hands and hoped for the best.

The durrabiliy was still green, but he was doubting he would be able to withstand that attack alone without losing his weapon.

As he thought that the sword swept closer towards him, and he took a defencive stance.

I'm gonna need some help over here! He yelled towards his team mates, hoping they would be able to help.

Mizuko's heart skipped a beat when she saw the boss tore off one of the pillars and she instantly knew what it was going to be for. The boss was going to use it was a weapon to fight against them. "EVERYONE, GET AS CLOSE AS YOU CAN. THEN BLOCK AT THE SAME TIME!" When she heard Wolf's instructions, her feet magically unglued itself from the ground and she felt herself running towards her group. The boss started to swing the pillar towards her group and its weapon towards the other group. As she stood near them, she held out her rapier in defense. The swing had seemed to be in slow motion coming towards them. She closed her eyes as her fingers tightened. "This is it." she thought.

The enormous blade was heading straight on at Vyse, Nick, and herself, with no way of being redirected away from them. Seeing Vyse get ready for the oncoming attack, she too poised her sword in front of her, gripping it with both hands until her knuckles practically became white. It got closer and closer, each second past feeling like an eternity. Her breathing was labored, and she could not hear anything except for the erratic beating of her heart. It gained on them with an alarming pace.

But now, it was all happening in slow motion.

'It' was upon them.

The Dragon Slayer seemed to turn in slow motion. The sword and the pillar seemed to just hover in the air as they slowly circled towards the players. Even the air in the room seemed to run away from the circling weapons as they rotated on their path. To be hit by either one of them would most certainly be most dire.

Wolf seeing the situation took the lead once again and called out to his fellow players. “Everyone, get as close as you can. Then block at the same time!” Then not even waiting to see if is orders were heeded he took off towards the boss dragging Zuloo and Asuna along with him.

Behind The Dragon Slayer Nick, Vyse, and Yuuki stood and watched as the bosses blade came towards them. Not having anywhere to go they got together and stood their ground awaiting the blade. The three players looked small in comparison but they stood united and prepared to defend themselves against the gigantic sword.

In front of the boss the situation was more confused. The players here were wearing light armor and had light blades. Certainly it was not enough to stop the slow death that came towards them in the shape of a giant pillar. Not bothering with team work the three in front decided to try and survive in their own ways. Black rushed to the point of the pillar that was closest to the boss, hoping to switch weapons in time to be able to block some of the damage that was coming. Mizuko stood in the center almost defying the flying death that headed towards her holding her rapier in front of her which looked almost hilariously small compared to large column of stone that approached her. Zwei went the opposite direction of Black also trying to switch weapons on the fly. Neither Black, nor Zwei would be able to switch in time. They could only look on as the pillar came closer and closer.

Just as the improvised weapon was about to get to them there was a large bellow that came from the direction of the boss. Wolf, Zuloo, and Asuna had reached their destination. Wolf and Zuloo swung their giant weapons at the boss’s foot at the same time. The simultaneous attack doing massive amounts of damage to The Dragon Slayer while at the same time Asuna launched an attack at the boss’s chest with maximum pressure. The combined attacks in opposite directions managed to topple the boss like a cut tree. The boss fell backwards and with both his arms swinging there was little it could do to stop. The blade behind him lost most of its speed and was blocked by the group who had been waiting for it to come with relative ease compared to what it would have been. The blade, having been blocked fell to the ground as the boss let go of it. The players in front of him had a slightly more nerve racking experience.

As the boss fell the pillar that he was swinging still seemed to head straight for them, but as the boss fell further and further back the pillar finally started to raise eventually as well. Both Black and Zwei who had nothing equipped could only watch as the pillar went over their heads showering them with small rocks and dust. Having stayed in the middle Mizuko need only watch as it flew over her head and went barrelling into the far wall. The room filled with smoke and small pieces of debris as the pillar broke apart and showered the room. The boss slowly got up and took his battle ax from his belt and simply stood where he had fallen mere moments ago. The aggressive stance he had long gone now replaced with a reserved, and almost mellow position as if awaiting the final assult from the group.

"Safe," Wolf looked behind him as Black and Zwei went cold under the mass of destruction. It calmed him knowing that his teammates were safe. He wouldn't know what to do he if were to lose another person. These strangers were now his companions, good acquaintances if you must.

But the problem with the current situation is that they are now back at square one. That didn't have a plan set up like they had when they met at Rum Runners. That didn't prevent Wolf from knowing what to do. He had a plan. In situations like these, you have to think numerous steps ahead and calculate multiple different plans before even executing one. Plan one, code named bee hive. Use the advantage of numbers and have the fast players focus on distracting the opponent, almost like a swarm of bees. Ever wonder why you can't even hit one bee even though there are so many? It's because EACH bee had a mind of it's own. Each one was watching you. Therefore, this plan would make use of speed and confusion to get the final blows in.

Plan two, code named dual strike, two groups again. One weapon, one attack point. Splitting up gives the advantage of striking from an undefended side. The problem would be position, everyone was tired and separated in an unusual manner. The team was so focused on the boss, they forgot to stick together.

Plan three, code named scape goat. This plan required Wolf to make a very obvious direct attack that the boss MUST defend against because each hit now counts for him. This gives every other player the chance to attack, ensuring victory, for those still alive. It was risky but Wolf began to quickly weight his options.

One thing was for sure though. There was an unregistered ability in the game that Wolf always considers; battle spirit. It can't be measured, but it can be raised. No matter which plan he was going to go with, this was the first step to it all. Raise the battle spirit of everyone around him, leave no doubt in their hearts. Everyone was going to make it out alive. Everyone was going to see to it that this game would be completed.

<<<HOWL>>> Wolf let out a tremendous roar. Below the level of ear splitting, he aimed to shake and boil the blood of his teammates. "This is the FINAL ATTACK!" Wolf screamed ready to move. Axes have the second strongest force, right below hammers, defending against it was not going to be pretty. "Yuuki," Wolf said to the player right next to him. "Do you trust me?"

Wolf executed his fourth plan. Wolf's favorite move during dodgeball was about to make its way onto the battlefield. The lob and bullet combination. "I'm going throw you very high into the air, attack with everything you got." Wolf launched the willing or unwilling player into the air. "Everyone! While he's distracted!" But Wolf's strategy was a double lob.

Wolf placed his sword in front of him like he was going to bunt a baseball and charged forward, down the center lane, making it very obvious to the boss. "AAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!" The monstrous roar was felt among everyone in the stadium. A basic strategy known for a quick defeat on the opponent, attack from all sides. "Urbus, the Dragon Slayer, who will you target?"

Wolf intended to use the unarmed technique, a body slam, using his blade to defend. This is it, Urbus.

You're done.

Zwei looked up from his menu and saw that it was too late. The pillar was heading right at him and black, and all he could do was too look at it. "This is it" he thought. "i'm going to die".
He saw that Wolf, Zuloo and Asuna went in and hacked away at the boss's foot. This made the boss waver, and he started to fall backwards. He lost the pillar, but it continued to move forward. It seemed to rise, as it moved towards them, but Zwei didn't really care. He was gone. He closed his eyes, straightened himself up and just waited. His menu was still up, and he just had to press the butten, and he would equip his katana again.
He waited, and waited. Suddenly he felt a Heavy air pressure and rubble started to fall Down on his head. he opened his eyes.

He had survived. He turned around and looked in awe at the piller which had crushed whatever it hit on the way. He just stood there for a few Seconds. He didn't know what to do, and because of that, he just stood there. Then his thoughts returned. he pressed "equip" and the katana materialized at his hip.
He drew his weapon and took an offensive stand.
He ran towards the boss and at the same time as wolf launched his triple "attack", Zwei ran forward an slashed at the bosses legs. With the katana eating through his armor like it was leather or Wood.
