Rest 3/3 EP FULL!

Beat playfully glared at Jonathan, never being one to take himself so seriously that he would be offended by some light teasing. 

"Yeah, guess I won't be letting you have my version of sushi once I perfect my soy sauce equivalent." Beat said happily as his mind managed to leave the constant buzzing behind in lieu of contemplating his various efforts to perfectly recreate flavors from the real world. He had found a good deal of success, meat and vegetables being the easiest to replicate since their flavors were not far off to begin with. However, things like sauces and spices were more difficult tailor to taste just like their real world equivalents. 

A familiar 'ding' rang in his ear as his energy bar produced a single pulse, letting him know that he was ready for action. "Nice! All full!" 

Taking another piece of honeycomb from the wall he was resting on, he stashed the material before standing up and beginning to stretch, "Alright, I'm ready let's make this quick!"

Setting his musings aside, Shield straightened up and waited for the others to do the same before turning down the passage that led towards the heaviest remaining source of buzzing. The honeycombed halls branched and forked at odd angles from the unusual hexagonal structure of the place. Before long though, the buzzing had risen to a roar, and there could be no doubt as to whether the queen was near or not.

Shield rushed through the open doorway into the boss room, gazing up at the ceiling where a handful of minions buzzed around a bee easily twice the size of the former queen.All four of them detached from the ceiling, dropping down and surrounding the older player as he filled his lungs for a howl.

"Bring it on!" he cried, pushing back the minions with the force of his voice while the queen remained unmoved as she hovered her impossible bulk a few feet off of the ground. "I'm about sick to death of all of this buzzing"

The minions swooped in, lancing their stingers into his body and, like those before them, feeling the sting in return. The queen, on the other hand, was too slow and sluggish to change course land a hit just yet, though she was working to close the distance.

The players followed Shield, moving into the huge nest hive. Amazingly, there happened to be a door leading them right inside. It was nice to see these bees were following the finest of architecture these days. The queen lie in front of them, this one easily five times the size of the last, with minions that were twice the size of the last minions. "Alright Beat, you take care of the queen, I will focus on the minions for now. Use your best single-target attack!" Jonathan charged forward, slashing wildly through the closest bee to him. He dealt a significant amount of damage, but not enough to affect anything without the help from the DPS. He ducked passed the stinger and easily retreated behind their respective tank. He had dealt a bit of damage, but not enough.... He needed to do more.

“Alright, sounds good!” Beat said enthusiastically as he filled his fist with the power of his strongest sword art. His fist pulsed with power as he bolted for the lumbering queen, who had made the mistake of relying on her guard to stay with her instead of leaving her behind like they had.

“Well, you’re brave, I’ll give you that! Too bad you’re stupid too!” He yelled as his charge skill blurred his form and allowed him to close the distance between him and his target instantly. His fist landed squarely in the side of the queen’s head, making a thunderous boom as the bloated royal insect flew into the air, taking several moments to gradually correct its flight path and angrily attempt to make its way back to the fight.

Beat laughed as he watched the over-sized bee queen slowly make her way towards the battle, “Next time lay off the royal jelly. I wonder why they thought making you bigger would equal a harder fight!”

"Careful what you wish for, Beat!" Shield called out. "You keep talking like that and karma will see to it we find out why she's harder than the old version."

It would only take a couple more swings for Beat to take the queen down, leaving him to mop up whatever Jonathan and he could not. He took stock of the damage that the paladin had done on his swing, and figured that lowering everyone's HP to that point or close to it was a worthy goal.

"So we're setting up for Beat to be able to one-shot wipe the minions? I can get behind that," he said with a nod of his head, almost as if he were stamping the idea for approval. Not that it needed it.

He rushed forward, dodging around stingers as he targeted the nearest minion with the highest health. He drug the blade of his axe across its fat, hairy body, ripping a gash with the hooked blade that spilled pixels into the air. 

"Perfect!" he exclaimed, more for his own benefit than anyone else's, stepping back to watch the next few blows unfold before choosing his next target.

Jonathan watched as Beat straight went for the queen, just as he was asked. He brought it quite far down in health, almost to the half-health mark. 'If he can only deal that much damage, then I could help him finish it off' It appeared the bee was rather slow, and that meant Jonathan could get a rather good hit. The queen was focused on Shield while so was his target. He quickly turned his body, altering his attacks. He slashed through the minion's back and heard it squeal in pain. An angry buzzing was heard after, but Jonathan had already rolled away. He had barely dealt anything, but Beat might be able to finish it from there, if not, then he was sure Shield would have the last laugh. Beat and Shield's thorns would finish off the queen no doubt. "Alright Beat, see if you can finish that buzzing queen off!" He said buzzing as if it was a curse word.

"Hmm, well...we'll probably get close anyway. I'll give the queen one thing, she's big and tough. That's it though." Beat said as he lined his next attack up. 

He took his time walking towards the lazy queen, daring to get right up to her and hop on top of her, her slow speed and large size making it simple to balance on her, even as she attempted to take the life of the tank. 

"Nope, wrong. Martial artist literally standing by your face is the one you should be worried about. Here, I'll show you." Beat said smiling widely as he bent his knees and dropped his weight into another haymaker that landed on target with a loud crash, sending the royal bee straight into the ground. The ground rumbled with the impact and the ground caved in from the weight and force of the now weakened bee queen.

Shield kept his eye on the battle, watching as the queen refused to go down. He frowned, working through the scenarios of attack as best as possible. While one more single target attack would easily drop her from red to dead, there had to be a better way.

"Beat, I'd say don't worry too much about killing her first," he called out. "She's not long for this world. She may not go down after one AoE, but two of those should pretty much wipe their whole party if we keep cutting off the tops of the health bars."

He made a swipe for the healthiest of the minions, but it flipped over backwards in the air to avoid his blade, sending its stinger upward with the rotation of its abdomen. The other minions followed suit and failed. Meanwhile, a strong and heavy stick in his side told him that the queen had finally hit. He noticed the drop in his health, but most of it would be back by the start of his next attack.

"I'm fine! Just go!"

Jonathan watched as Beat attacked the queen once again, bringing her critically low in health. He sighed. Perhaps if he would have also hit her, Beat would ahve finished her. He turned his attention to one of the bees in front of him, slashing at it but failing. He groaned and turned to watch as the Queen was getting in range of Shield. He appeared to be focused on the minions though. "Shield!" Too late. The bee struck Shield and he began to move out of range. 'My fault' He turned to the highest bee in health and planned to strike that one next, to bring it down where Beat could finish it off as well. "We are doing great guys, keep up the good work. Beat, begin to start moving into AoE's, I'll bring down that one feller for you!" He chuckled and waited to watch the magic that Beat would display. He was made for a single-target enemy but he had gone AoE.

“Alright, tornado time it is!” He said, agreeing with the strategic assessment his two companions offered. He looked the large queen and gave her a glare, “You got lucky.”

With a new strategy to employ, Beat maneuvered around the battlefield, waiting for his opportunity to catch all of the insects in one attack. This was primarily the reason he preferred his single target damage to his area of effect sword arts. The top-level sword arts gave a satisfying sensation when used that the lower levels didn’t, but more than that, the single target arts were far easier use effectively since all the user had to do was hone in on one target rather than four.

Activating his charge skill again, he ran towards the three minions that he had been ignoring up until now, spinning through the group and catching the queen’s guard with the full brunt of the attack and the queen with a little less force since the charge had been directed away from her. 

“If you guys can chip down that minion there, my next attack should do it!” Beat called out, pointing to the minion with the highest health bar out of all of them.

Despite leaving the queen alive, Beat had still done enough to her to draw her focus. Her many segmented eyes, swiveled to the younger player. Shield grit his teeth and narrowed his eyes, leaping in front of her as she began buzzing angrily towards Beat.

"Oh, no you don't!" he <Howled>, all of the bees dropping what they were doing to stare at him.

They each swarmed at him, their mandibles and spiny legs failing to land any solid purchase on the tank. At least, that was was true at first. Suddenly, he could not move. Furthermore, two little symbols had appeared in his HUD.

Paralysis... and bleed as well?

He fought against the effect, but not only did he fail to break the status effect, his muscles didn't even act as if they had received the signal to do so. He couldn't even call out.

Well, this is a fine little pickle...

Jonathan watched as the queen appeared to finally be in the game, striking Shield and having him fall to the ground as he was plagued with status effects. Beat called for them to chip down the health bar of the last bee and Jonathan nodded his head. He turned to face the bee and carged forward, using the element of surprise to boost his attack. He lashed forward with his weapon, placing strokes along its body. It buzzed angrily trying to sting him before he got away, but Joanthan was already gone, rolling away from the creature. "Alright Beat. Now is the time to finish them off" Hewas not sure if the man could do it, but if anyone would be able to, it was Beat. Beat had one of the higher damages of the game. Get him in Tier three, and he would be dealing an insane amount of damage.

Beat was beginning to feel the fatigue build up in his body as his energy drained further with each attack. He was glad to see that Jonathan's efforts had set up the kill shot perfectly. He smiled at the Paladin as he straightened up and began timing his next attack. 

"Nicely done! Leave the rest up to me!" He said, his eyes watching the scope of the battlefield rather than any of the insects individually. Once he found his opening, Beat charged forward, his legs pushing past the fatigue and propelling him into the middle of the swarm just in time for his tornado kick to burst through each of them, creating a shower of red pixels as each enemy dropped to zero health. 

"Not bad guys! That's one done quest!" Beat said happily, plopping down and catching his breath after a hard fought battle. He looked at his energy bar and nodded, his fatigue matching fairly well with the display.

Now all that remained was some distant droning that, for all they knew, was just intentional ambient sound effect for the purposes of making the hive more intimidating. Shield gave each of the others a nod before fiddling with his menus to swap out his gear once again.

"I'd say we've earned a rest, though I say we move as we do so," he added, gesturing to the air around him. "This buzzing is grating on me."

As he made towards the exit, he spotted a section of comb that was dripping with honey, and upon inspection, he discovered that a small section of the wall was a removable item. He tapped it and selected the option to store it away before motioning for the others to follow.

"Who's up for a drink when we get back? Not you, Beat. You've had enough."

Jonathan would watch as Beat moved for the kill, managing to take each of them with his barehands. Jonathan sheathed his weapon as the battle ceased. It was much harder than the original, though it had not been a challenge for the three players. He smiled smugly. They had passed the test. He would open his messenger and send the three paladins a message that would say that they had passed. He would clear his throat to gather the attention of the two. "It would appear you two have passed. From here on out, consider yourselves Sentinels of the Celestial Ascendants. To not consider you two higher than Apprentices would be merely selfish. Beat. You are now DPS Sentinel of the CA, and Shield. You are a Sentinel for the Tanks. Good work you two." He sheathed his weapon and would walk a distance away. Beat and Shield had come a far way to become Sentinel's and they had earned it. They had worked even harder than the other two. Working, even without the guild.

Shield was taken aback. While the prospect of being a sentinel was one that he had pushed for, he had received mixed signals in his inquiries. There had even been a number of jabs insinuating that there was a long way to go before earning the position, which granted were well meaning, but could not entirely be dismissed. Unsure of how exactly to react, he merely nodded, extending his fist to Beat as was their typical sign of celebration. The younger player he was sure would be much more emotive than he was. That was simply their way.

"I can't say I was expecting that, at least not at this exact moment." He felt as though this was a test he hadn't studied for. There was not yet a clear delineation of what would be expected of them going forward. he was sure there would be future discussions of that nature, but in the mean time, that left him a little on the defensive. On the other hand, defensive was how he played, so despite his surprise, he did not allow any of his uncertainty play out on his face. The only person who likely would know him well enough to sense his discomfort would be Beat.

Beat blinked a few times as he looked at the paladin who he could have sworn just promoted he and Shield to Sentinel. A smile slowly grew on his face as he began to dance around a little bit. 

"Woo! Aww yeah! Sentinel!" He cheered as he drunkenly moved about with a surprising amount of coordination given his mental state. 

Despite his celebration, Beat had not failed to notice Shield's subdued reaction and he knew the reason for his lack of enthusiasm. Their previous discussion on the matter had been put on hold due to a need for processing. The older gentleman had yet to resume their conversation about the matter, but Beat was exercising an unusual amount of patient on the matter and we content to let Shield decide when to re-address the topic. 

"So this was a test all along? Sneaky paladin!" Beat said jovially, teasing Jonathan as he moved about, finding it difficult to stop himself from dancing once he had begun.

Jonathan would watch the two players. Shield looked rather casual about it, and gave a fist to Beat. Beat on the other hand was a fullblown celebration. He danced around out of happiness. He gave a slight smile to Shield, knowing the man was not one to celebrate too much. "You two have worked the hardest of any of us. If we were to retire out positions, you two would have a sure position as Paladin" He nodded to the men one who asked if this was a test all along. Jonathan nodded. "More or less" It was decided that a test should be arranged for the two, but it had not been decided when. "Sneaky? If you wanted Sneaky, I am not the Paladin to ask. Hikoru himself would. You two have fun with your positions, rally up some players and move out for a guild quest. Warning. With a ton of people, they take FOREVER. I would have 3-4 players per go" Jonathan winked to the players before waving and turning around, leaving the two players behind.

Shield nodded in response to the paladin's advice. The numbers game was not one that had entirely escaped him. Especially with a boisterous personality like Beat's around, as there came to be more and more people in a party, the less focused the gathering was and the more likely the task at hand was to be derailed.

"Point taken," he said, giving another nod, grateful for the advice. "Thank you. It's an opportunity that neither of us take lightly. Again, it is one I did not expect to be presented to us just yet, but it means a great deal."

He motioned for Beat to follow and turned towards the exit, accidentally kicking a ball of what ended up being bee's wax that had been lying on the ground. He bent down to retrieve it as he caught up to the uneven lump, storing it away with the small assortment of other sundry crafting materials he had found along the way.

"If Beat wasn't already a little toasty right now, I might recommend a celebration," he lowered the volume of his voice a little for Jonathan. "Though right now, I daresay he's already doing plenty of celebrating."

Beat continued to boogie as he followed the only sober member of their duo back to the city, waving farewell to the paladin as he parted ways with them. He eyed Shield suspiciously, not being able to catch his final words to Jonathan, "Hey now, secrets don't make friends." He said, bending down to scoop up a large sheet of golden honeycomb that had fallen during their fight. He held the rare find up and gave a whistle before stashing it, "Too bad that was found on the second floor."

What that, the two of them made their way back to the eleventh floor, taking their well known path home. As they neared their home, something in the canyon wall caught Beat's eye, "What's that?" With a acrobatic leap, he leaped into the open in the wall face and stared at what appeared to be a dungeon door, he walked to the edge of the opening on looked back up at Shield, "How have we never seen this?" 

Beat quickly mapped the area out, making a quick note to explore the dungeon with his friend at a later time.
