Plot

Volume 1: Banished Battle God

Cold Night and Tyrannical Ambition meet Xu Boyuan's Blue River and Blue Brook Guild with Plantago Seed and Herb Garden. They are at Boneyard to kill Blood Gunner Yagg. Cold Night congratulates Xu Boyuan when they learn of Plantago Seed's death. Following Lord Grim's plan, Cold Night assembles the Tyrannical Ambition party to kill Goblin Merchant. He follows Lord Grim's complex orders, and Cold Night feels sad that he acted as a secretary by repeatedly getting guild members to join the party. Cold Night's party outputs damage onto Goblin Merchant while Lord Grim's party pulls aggro. Cold Night and Tyrannical Ambition secure the first kill of Goblin Merchant.

Cold Night worries about the high payments of uncommon materials to Lord Grim. He paid 20 White Wolf Bristles and 30 Spider Teeth to Lord Grim for helping Tyrannical Ambition to kill Goblin Merchant. Cold Night has plenty of Spider Teeth but only 10 White Wolf Bristles. Cold Night dispatches all of his teams on the 10th Server to find the remaining 10 White Wolf Bristles to clear the guild's debts with Lord Grim. Cold Night speculates that Tyrannical Ambition might need Lord Grim's help to secure the records and wild bosses in the future, which would cost a fortune. When Endless Night refuses to turn over his Crystal Cross as a mortgage to Lord Grim, Cold Night takes over negotiations with Lord Grim.[2] Cold Night manages to buy the uncommon materials that Lord Grim needed and finds four DPS players for the record breaking Frost Forest dungeon clear.

Cold Night reports to his superiors in the Heavenly Domain. When he returns to the 10th Server, Cold Night sees Herb Garden's mediocre record of 17 minutes, 48 seconds, and 45 milliseconds. He is shocked by Excellent Dynasty's record of 13 minutes, 24 seconds, and 21 milliseconds. Cold Night learns from Lord Grim that at least three pro level players helped Excellent Dynasty set the fastest record clear of Frost Forest on all servers. Cold Night discusses with Endless Night and Lord Grim on a plan to break Excellent Dynasty's record. Cold Night has to wait until Lord Grim is level 25. Cold Night prepares equipment for the party. He has to collect information for Lord Grim to determine how many pro players helped Excellent Dynasty. Cold Night feels that the 10th Server is cursed with unprecedented experts, such as Lord Grim.

Cold Night informs Lord Grim of the classes of the Excellent Dynasty party that set the 10th Server Frost Forest clear record. Cold Night tells Lord Grim that he needs more time for an equipment specialist to figure out what equipment the Excellent Dynasty party used.

Cold Night informs Lord Grim about the record setting Excellent Dynasty party's equipment. All party members used Purple weapons with lackluster equipment. Cold Night complains to Lord Grim to level up faster because Lord Grim's party breaks Excellent Dynasty's Frost Forest clear record would be meaningless. The level cap stands at 25, so Tyrannical Ambition needs to break the record before the general population's level passes 25 for more fame and glory. Cold Night allows Lord Grim to take over the strategy of the operations. Cold Night rushes to find a guild member to be part of Lord Grim's party, so Tyrannical Ambition can get their guild name on the record.

Cold Night should get Soft Mist and Steamed Bun Invasion to join Tyrannical Ambition.

Cold Night sees Excellent Dynasty's new record Frost Forest clear time of 12 minutes, 55 seconds, and 42 milliseconds.

Cold Night is shocked by the new record by Excellent Dynasty. He spent a lot of uncommon materials to pay Lord Grim to set the last record. Cold Night could not afford to hire Lord Grim to break the Frost Forest record again, so he abandons the struggle for Frost Forest's record. He logs off of the 10th Server to find Jiang You for advice on his next set of actions.

Cold Night debates on what to do about Tyrannical Ambition's current hold of the record clear time for Boneyard. He knows that Excellent Dynasty can call upon its Excellent Era players to break Tyrannical Ambition's record. Cold Night wonders if he should hire Lord Grim to break Tyrannical Ambition's record in order to improve their hold on the Boneyard record. The level cap for record clear time attempts of Boneyard stands at level 27. Cold Night can only wait to hire Lord Grim, who is at level 25.

Cold Night is shocked by the new Boneyard record clear time of 23 minutes, 54 seconds, and 71 milliseconds. He learns that Lord Grim set the record by only leveling and casually dungeoning.
