Seeing this, sand jackal’s eyes flashed ferociously. It let out a tyrannical roar, then it stood up like an ordinary person and waved its front paws. Layers of yellow claw phantasms protected himself in it.
For a time, the black blade shadow slashed on the claw phantasms. The intertwining black-yellow light instantly swarmed the entire sand jackal.
While Sha Chuer was fighting with the larger sand jackals, the remaining 3 sand jackals had already surrounded Liu Ming. The 3 sand jackals launched 3 green light beams from the 3rd vertical eye at Liu Ming.
Liu Ming’s expression became gloomy, and black gas started to roll out. He moved his body sideways to dodge 1 of the light beam, then he transformed into 3 phantasms and scattered away. The other 2 phantasms collapsed after being hit by the remaining light beams.
The 3rd phantasm took this opportunity to jump into the air. The black gas around him condensed into 4 mist tigers as he launched both arms.
3 mist tigers pounced out at the 3 sand jackals after a deafening tiger roar sounded.
For a time, dust and smoke spread all over the sky.
“Bang bang bang“, the 3 sand jackals couldn’t defend in time and were knocked into the air. They rolled in the air for a few times before stabilizing themselves.
When Liu Ming saw the sand jackals landed on the ground, he couldn’t help being surprised.
These sand jackals were so sturdy that they could tank the full blow of his Dragon Tiger Hell Prison.
But the next moment, Liu Ming made a gesture in midair. Golden lights rolled out and formed circles of golden sword shadows, sweeping across the 3 sand jackals like a rainstorm.
These sand jackals were very afraid of the Void Flying Sword that killed their companion. Seeing the whistling sword lights, they all retreated at once.
Even though these sand jackals were extremely fast, how could they be faster than the Void Flying Sword? After the golden sword lights passed through, 1 of them was instantly slashed into 8 pieces.
After the other 2 sand jackals escaped the round of sword light attack, they suddenly howled and blasted toward Liu Ming in 2 yellow phantasms.
Liu Ming sneered and tapped with 1 hand. The Void Sword shuddered and split into dozens of golden sword lights that interlaced into a golden sword net.
The 2 sand jackals also wailed and were dissected into a dozen pieces.
After Liu Ming retrieved the flying sword, he observed the ongoing battle not far away.
The large sand jackal was heavily injured under Sha Chuer’s strange movements and dance with the black sand blade. Its aura was weakened by a lot. It had lost its initially domineering will, and a hint of retreat emerged in its mind.
However, under Sha Chuer’s airtight attack, it naturally had no chance to escape.
Obviously, the Sand Clan people here were quite capable of dealing with these sand jackals.
There are also 2 large sand jackals on the side. Seeing Liu Ming’s strength, they glanced at each other in fear before fleeing away.
Liu Ming sneered. With a flicker, he had already caught up with the nearest sand jackal and launched a punch.
This sand jackal was blown back by the huge fist phantasm, but it immediately turned over and rushed forward frantically.
But the next moment, with a “swoosh“, the golden sword light circled around the sand jackal, beheading it; the headless corpse ran for a hundred meters before falling to the ground weakly.
Seeing this, the last sand jackal had fear in its eyes. It swiftly dived into the sand.
At this moment, a black flash came from the other side!
As soon as the black light faded, the sand jackal’s heart was actually pierced through by the black sand blade, and it was pinned to the ground. It was dead after struggling a few times.
After Sha Chuer had already killed the large sand jackal, she turned around and launched a ranged attack!
Although Liu Ming was a little surprised, he recalled the flying sword and stopped on the spot.
With a white flash, Sha Chuer appeared next to the sand jackal corpse on the ground and pulled out the sand blade on the ground. A black-red blood was spilled on the black sand.
She glanced at the corpses of the other 3 sand jackals not far away, then she looked at Liu Ming with a slightly surprised look. When she was about to say something, there were faint howlings from farther away in the desert as if there are more sand jackals rushing toward them.
“Oh no, something bad is happening! It’s the jackal tide! We must return to the city as soon as possible.” Sha Chuer lost her composure after hearing that.
Although Liu Ming had some doubts in his mind, he naturally wouldn’t object. He immediately rushed toward the oasis with her.
It didn’t take long before they arrived at the gate of Shaman City.
Looking from a distance, they saw that the city wall was about 40 meters taller, and there were people being busy on the city wall. Some were fortifying the city wall; some were preparing the defensive means. They all looked like a formidable enemy was approaching.
“It seems that your people have also noticed the abnormal movement of those sand jackals.” Liu Ming said softly with a frown.
Sha Chuer nodded, but she was still frowning.
The originally closed city gate slowly opened slightly. After Liu Ming and Sha Chuer flew in, the gate was quickly closed again with a bang.
“Brother Liu, it seems that a tough battle is inevitable here. I’ll take you to a safer place first.” When the 2 stepped into the city, Sha Chuer breathed a sigh of relief before saying to Liu Ming solemnly.
“No need. I think Miss Sha also knows my strength. Dealing with these sand beasts shouldn’t be a problem. Let’s go up to the city wall and have a look at the situation.” Liu Ming said with a faint smile.
“Brother Liu is indeed powerful. It’s fine. Let’s go up and take a look.” After Sha Chuer pondered for a while, she stopped persuading.
Then, she and Liu Ming went up to the city wall together.
At this time, on the city wall, although everyone’s expression was tense, they still acted in a well-trained and orderly manner.
Some Sand Clans people with lower cultivation were constantly using mystic arts to condense sandy soil to constantly increase the height and thickness of the city wall. Others with high cultivation bases were standing at the battlement in a defensive stance.
At this moment, the howling in the distance got closer and closer, and Liu Ming stared at the situation in the distance.
Thousands of meters away from the oasis, amidst the flying black sand, countless dense black sand piles were rapidly advancing toward the city wall.
These sand piles vary in height; the small ones were 5 meters tall and the bigger ones were 30 meters tall.
Wherever the sand piles passed, sand and dust would be scattered up to the sky and the ground would be trembling slightly.
Looking around, there were about a thousand of them.
The number of sand jackals was so huge that even Liu Ming couldn’t help but feel a little numb seeing this!
If every sand jackal had the strength that he encountered just now, it was really hard to say whether the Sand Clan people could really repel the beast tide.
In the distance, a few sand jackals did not dig into the ground. Instead, they howled from time to time, seeming to be guiding their companions.
The sand beastkins in the sand piles were following the sound to quickly form various square formations while marching forward. It appeared quite orderly.
It didn’t take long before these sand jackals and sand piles reached 100 meters away from the city wall.
At the same time, in the black sand ground, piles of sand condensed into the yellow three-eyed sand jackals.
The figures of these sand jackals were like a sand pile; they were different in size. The smallest ones were only about 6 meters tall while the largest ones were about 30 meters tall.
The cultivation of those that were taller than 10 meters was slightly higher; most of them were at the Condensation Period. As for those 6 meters sand jackals, they only had the cultivation of the Spirit Apostle.
“It’s sand jackals. Use sand spears to attack. Don’t let them approach.” Behind Liu Ming, someone shouted loudly.
Immediately, the Sand Clan people on the city wall immediately made gestures. Sand spears were condensed in their hands one by one. After a command, the sand spears were launched with a burst of black wind at the beast tide.
After the sand spears hit the sand jackals, the launched attacks burst into black sand that covered the thousands of sand jackals. It was hard to see the situation clearly for a time.
“Miss Sha, although the number of these sand jackals is huge, their cultivation is not high. There are also several Crystallization Period powerhouses in the clan, so it shouldn’t be difficult to repel them. Why everyone is so anxious?” Seeing this, Liu Ming suddenly turned his head and asked Sha Chuer.
“Brother Liu had already fought with them just now. Although these sand jackals are not high in cultivation, they are not only born with great strength and quick speed, but they also have a strong physical body and amazing defensive power. At the same time, they can absorb the vitality of the sand to restore themselves, so if you don’t give the killing blow to their head or heart, it’s very difficult to kill them. We Sand Clan only have a few mystic arts that can cause fatal damage to them! Over the years, we Sand Clan have killed endless sand jackals, but they will always recover after a period of time. When their number increases to a certain size, they will try to siege the oasis again. In this case, how could we not take these sand beasts seriously.” As Sha Chuer said here, she paused.
“Oh, have your clan ever failed to stop the jackal tide before?” Liu Ming frowned and asked again when he heard this.
