The [Piercing Thorn] pierced through the left chest of the Doppelganger but it failed to hit the target heart. Eh!? No, the Doppelganger have no heart to be targeted to begin with, so the expected bonus effect of the 'Heart Seeker' skill didn't come in effect.

Then both of the swords of the Doppelganger suddenly release a threatening crimson glow.

Shin immediately pulled the [Piercing Thorn] from the Doppelganger's chest and jumped backwards to put some distance away from the Doppelganger.

'I really like this new battle style from the system.' thought Shin to himself before releasing the 'Conviction Form' the 'Mondi's Style' and returning the [Piercing Thorn] into its sheath form.

Then he swiftly put the [Yamato] on its sheath before taking a sword drawing stance.

The Doppelganger is currently sitting on the ground so it can't block or dodge the incoming strike. All it can do is to activate its remaining defensive skill. A sword Qi enfold its body, protecting it from any harm.

'Copied Skill: Swordsman Resolve'

Shin sneered at the Doppelganger and said. \"Heh, Idi*t.\"

Then Shin jump forward before spinning in the air and throwing a powerful kick at the Doppelganger's head with his left leg.

The kick didn't deal any damage because of the five second damage immunity of the 'Swordsman Resolve' Skill, but that kick is enough to knock the Doppelganger on the ground.

Then Shin put some distance away from the Doppelganger to wait for the ten second duration of the 'Swordsman Resolve' to come to an end. Naturally, the Doppelganger will chase after Shin during this time. But the later is quite skilled at running and dodging.

And when the ten second duration was up, Shin finally start his counterattack. Shin skillfully dodge the Doppelganger sword strikes and hop backwards while secretly channeling the power of the Sun on his sheathed sword.

And when the Doppelganger chase after him, Shin quickly pulled the sword from its sheath and swing it at the Doppelganger.

Then Shin immediately sheath his sword once again and channels the power of the Moon on it. After that he jump a little forward and get near at the raging flame caused by the explosion.

At the same time, the Doppelganger already learned its lesson and didn't blindly jump forward. Instead, it move backwards to get out from the flames.

Then the raging flames were immediately removed and replaced by a cold ice on the ground. At the same time, the Doppelganger was frozen once again.

Shin quickly sheath his sword for another time before dashing forward and sliding at the frozen floor.

And when he arrived in front of the Doppelganger, Shin immediately pulled the sword once again and slash it the later's frozen body.

'Class Fighting Style: Quick Draw'

Shing!

And since this is the strongest single target Skill at Shin's arsenal, the damage it dealt is quite stronger than his other 'Class Fighting Style Skills'.

Then Shin immediately use the 'Moonlight Steps' to get away from the Doppelganger.

BOOM!!!

The Doppelganger have gone berserk with its one and a half million remaining HP. Then it suddenly disappeared at its current location and reappeared at Shin's back while swinging its sword downwards.

Shin use the 'Sun-Ray Dash' forward to get away from the Doppelganger. But the later immediately chase after him.

Shin cancel the 'Sun-Ray Dash' and use the 'Sword Rush' skill to change his direction. Unfortunately, the Doppelganger didn't get tricked by that sudden change of direction and continue chasing after him.

Shin tried to use the 'Vanishing Steps' a few times to shake off the Doppelganger, but the later is always able to locked at his location.

Left with no choice, Shin is forced to face the berserk Doppelganger head-on. He transformed the sheath of his sword into a semitransparent longsword before holding it a forehand grip manner.

'Legacy Skill: Mondi's Style: Meteor Form'

Then Shin suddenly felt that he have gotten some bonus strength that came from his sword. But he is unable to feel it clearly because of the Doppelganger is already upon him.

Clang! Clang! Clang!

Clang! Clang! Clang!

Shin is able to hold his ground firmly from the sword strikes of the Doppelganger. But after some time, he is starting to get some damage as the difference on their stats are starting to show its gap.

Then Shin suddenly get an inspiration. He gritted his teeth as he swing his swords more. And every time his swords collides with his opponent's swords, he is trying to absorb some of force from the collision, before using it to supplement his attacks.

He is using the 'Yin-Yang Twist' Combat Technique together with the 'Parrying Stance' Combat Technique. And after some time of using those Combat Techniques together against his opponent's attacks, Shin is starting get a hold of it and manage to get the upper hand as he deal some more damage at the Doppelganger.

Then a System Notification sounded on Shin's ears, unfortunately he have no time to check what kind of notification is it.

BANG!

(-50 632)

Shin was sent flying backwards after getting hit by a very powerful sword strike cast by the Doppelganger.

Then he flip in the air to relieve some force from the impact of that attack. At the same time, he release the 'Meteor Form' of the 'Mondi's Style' and transform the [Snowstorm Edge] back to its sheath form, before Shin put the [Yamato] in it.

Ta-Ta!

Shin crouch on the ground while holding the sheath of his sword with his left hand while placing his right hand at the hilt of the sword.

And that is the time when the when the Doppelganger arrived some distance away from Shin, before swinging both of its sword diagonally, sending a cross shaped crimson sword Qi forward.

The sword of the Doppelganger is stronger because of its superior stats, but Shin's sword is way faster than the former because he use a crucial skill at the perfect time.

And because the 'Moonlight Splitter' is an AGI base skill, its damage skyrocket and reach a whole new level, especially with Shin's quadruple stats in his Double Berserk Skill state.
