This beast was one of the giant yin beasts. It looked very similar to earthworms, and it had an unusually large size. Although its intelligence was not high, it was good at burrowing through the ground and moving at a terrifying speed underground, so it was used by the ghost army to carry ghost creatures in its stomach.
It was just that this beast was extremely rare. According to the current information, there were not many in the ghost army. Since this beast had no offensive and defensive capabilities, the Crystallization Period cultivator could kill it easily, so it generally does not appears in large-scale battles.
As the ghost howls came, red lights shot up from the fissures, dispersing the nearby gray mist.
Immediately afterward, giant earthworms with dark red bodies protruded their heads from the fissures, then they crawled out like a snake along the plain toward the Taitian Fortress.
Each ghost worm was about 180 meters long. Their heads had no eyes, but there were 2 pairs of black-white tentacles. On each section of its body, there was a circle of black holes with the size of 1.5 meters. The gray mist was continuously sprayed out from the holes.
“Stop it, don’t let it get close to the city wall!” Cao Changhe commanded immediately.
On the high platform where Liu Ming was, the 6 of them hurriedly turned to one side and turned the golden mirrors in their hands. A thick golden light beam shot straight at one of the giant earthworms.
The golden light flashed by.
“Poof“, the giant earthworm was directly hit on the head by the golden light beam.
The entire head of the giant earthworm along with a section of its body instantly vanished, leaving only the large half of its long body. With a “thump“, it slumped to the ground.
After twisting a few more times, the giant earthworm lay dead on the ground.
As Cao Changhe kept changing the positions of the 2 flags, the golden light beams shot from the fortune bowl at the ghost worms through the reflection of the golden mirrors.
Although the Golden Light Array had a gap between each launch, it was fortunate that those ghost worms were not fast on the ground. In less than 10 minutes, the remaining giant earthworms were all dead.
However, before everyone could relax, a cloud of gray mist spewed out of the dense black holes above the remaining half bodies of the giant earthworms.
When the gray mist dissipated, everyone could see dense ghost pawns surged out from the holes. There were a few thousand of them. Under the commands of the few Real Pellet State ghost captains, under the lead of 10 ghost lieutenants, all ghost pawns formed 10 phalanxes and rushed toward the Taitian Fortress.
For a time, the ghost howls came together!
Since the puppets were resisting the ghost pawns outside, even the Demon Mystic Sect’s disciples on the city walls turned toward the ghost pawns that suddenly appeared, they still couldn’t stop them from approaching the fortress due to the overwhelming number.
With the command of the Real Pellet State captains, hundreds of low rank stationed disciples also jumped down from the city wall one after another and fought with the ghost pawns.
It was just that there were too many ghost pawns. It didn’t take long for the low rank disciples to be directly swarmed by the ghost pawns. The silver light curtain covering the fortress was also shaking wildly under the frantic attack of the ghost pawns who broke through the defense line.
The sudden presence of so many enemy reinforcements on the north wall made the situation of the Taitian Fortress precarious.
“Brother Cao, now the ghost pawns on the outside are holding the puppets. These sneak attack ghost pawns are too close to the city wall. Our Golden Light Array can no longer attack.” On a high tower, the curly-haired middle-aged man said solemnly.
“The 4 Celestial State elders have not appeared since the beginning. I’m afraid that they are trying to activate the Taitian Array at this moment.” Another beautiful young woman said so.
“Yes, we just have to hold until the elders activate the Taitian Formation. Now let’s initiate plan B!” Cao Changhe made a decision after thinking for a while.
Hearing this, Liu Ming and the others threw the golden mirror in their hands into the air, then they flew up from the towers and rushed to the north city wall.
At the same time, the formation flags in Cao Changhe’s hands danced wildly. The 36 golden light mirrors around him rose into the air and gathered above him. All the golden light mirrors combined into 1 and formed a six-sided exquisite golden mirror ball.
Immediately afterward, the golden light emitted from the fortune bowl was refracted by the golden mirror ball and scattered into hundreds of thousands of golden lights, which disappeared into the silver protective light curtain. The shaky silver light curtain was slightly stabilized as golden light appeared.
Outside the north city wall of the fortress, the low rank garrison disciples were in a tough fight. When they saw the 36 thirty-six disciples flying down, their morale was also boosted. The thousands of ghost pawns under the city wall condensed gray spears with ghost qi and shot at them.
Seeing this, Liu Ming’s figure seemed to flicker slowly, then he easily avoided these ghost spears and landed in the phalanx formed by about 100 ghost pawns.
With a loud shout, 5 black mist dragons emerged from his back.
The black mist dragons circled back and forth in the ghost pawns like a dragon playing in the water. The pair of sharp claws swept across the ghost pawns.
The low rank ghost pawns were pierced by the claws and turned into mist.
Seeing this, the leading ghost lieutenant kept channeling the ghost mist and shot gray light beam at the black mist dragons.
Seeing this, Liu Ming made a gesture, and the 5 black mist dragons burst apart and turned into a black light that trapped a dozen ghost pawns in it.
Then he raised one hand, and a purple sword light shot out from his sleeve.
The purple sword light flashed and disappeared into the Hell Prison.
Low inaudible screams sounded one after another.
Only then did Liu Ming call back the Bitter Wheel Sword. He waved 1 sleeve, and the Hell Prison dispersed, but the ghost pawns in it had already turned into wisps of gray ghost qi.
To Liu Ming’s surprise, as soon as these ghosts qi dissipated, many of the surrounding ghost creatures stopped fighting and began to devour the ghost qi. Their aura rose gradually, and they became more aggressive.
A similar situation was repeated in other places, but now Liu Ming and other 35 elite disciples were facing hundreds of ghost pawns, so they had no time to think.
When Liu Ming was feeling a little surprised, not far behind him, there was a strange looking ghost lieutenant with an incomplete body. After sucking a lot of ghost qi, the incomplete part of its body regenerated at a rapid speed. Its Crystallization Period later stage aura also gradually rose.
After a few more seconds, the gray mist on the ghost lieutenant suddenly grew thicker. A huge ghost head phantasm emerged behind it. “Boom“, an amazing spiritual pressure burst out.
This ghost lieutenant actually advanced to the Real Pellet State directly, transforming into a ghost captain with a ferocious face and a bumpy body. Its eyes were full of murderous intent, and it was making bursts of ghost howls.
At this time, outside the city wall, several other ghost lieutenants also successfully advanced to the Real Pellet State and attacked the light curtain frantically.
Liu Ming looked at the scene with a gloomy face. While channeling the Bitter Wheel Sword to kill the tide-like ghost pawns, he quickly patted the leather bags around his waist.
After 2 “poof“, 1 black mist and 1 green mist floated out and turned into Fei’er and Xie’er.
“Fei’er, clean up those low rank ghost creatures. Xie’er come with me!” Liu Ming quickly commanded.
“Don’t worry, master. Just leave these low rank ghost creatures to me”
Fei’er looked excited. He threw out the beads on his neck, then he turned into 9 boys in green clothes and rushed toward the ghost army. When the green air swept past, the low rank ghost creatures were decimated by the 9 boys.
Seeing this, Liu Ming nodded. When he was about to rush toward the city wall, the ghost captain who had just advanced flew toward Liu Ming.
Seeing this, Xie’er, who wanted to follow Liu Ming, stopped in front of the ghost creature. There was a trace of ominous light on her cold face.
Seeing this, the ghost captain shot a red ghost flame from its mouth at Xie’er.
Xie’er’s eyes flashed, and the golden cockscomb mark on her forehead flickered and shot a golden light.
“Impossible, you are also a ghost creature. How could you…” After seeing the golden light, the ghost captain showed a bit of horror and cried out strangely.
The red ghost flame was dispersed once it touched the golden light beam.
When the ghost creature wanted to turn around and flee, a golden light swept at it again, causing it to make a tragic sound.
