The biggest weakness of the evil eye was its slower speed. Although long-range rays could make up for this shortcoming to a certain extent (the range of spirit shock was shorter), their lack of mobility made them incapable of chasing quick enemies. However, the evil eye tyrant actually had the mutated talent of teleportation now. It could attack by progressing and defend by retreating, so it had almost perfectly made up for the deficiencies of the evil eye family.
Chen Rui and Roman were about to face such a “perfect” evil eye now. It was even a Demon Emperor-level tyrant.
Chen Rui’s ability could barely approach the early stage of Demon Emperor’s combat power through [Scorching Dragon Possession] and [Dark Star Territory], but the spirit of this mutated tyrant had reached the peak of Demon Emperor level. With the horrifying spirit talent of the evil eye, he couldn’t compete with it even with the help of Roman.
“Lets run separately!” Chen Rui shouted decisively. Roman responded and the two figures suddenly separated.
The evil eye tyrant followed Chen Rui without hesitation because it targeted the intruder with the highest hatred from the very beginning. Moreover, Roman’s current speed was still faster than Chen Rui’s. Obviously, the immediate target was easier to chase.
Chen Rui felt the evil eye tyrant approaching via his [Analytical Eyes]. Before it could attack, he suddenly teleported and rounded back to the entrance of another passage to escape.
The evil eye tyrant had seen the same teleportation skill of this enemy once before, so it was not surprised. Its figure shook and chased him up. Its moving distance was even beyond Chen Rui, and it could be used continuously. After several flickers, it approached him again.
Chen Rui cried secretly as his two teleports had been used up, and he was already at his maximum speed with the help of Stridebug, but he still couldn’t get rid of the tyrant’s pursuit. At this moment, Chen Rui felt that his movements at full speed suddenly “wanted” to slow down. At this critical juncture, he actually had such weird thoughts.
Oh no! Chen Rui realized. This is mind control! Such a terrifying ability!
Although Chen Rui quickly eliminated this interference, the momentary hesitation of the brain just now had reflected on his body. His speed suddenly slowed down, and the evil eye tyrant appeared in front of him.
The evil eye tyrant, who had been chasing this cunning prey unsuccessfully, felt unusually furious and hatred. It was determined to consume his entire soul. In order to prevent the prey from escaping again, it unleashed the most powerful spirit power.
Chen Rui felt dizzy as if a big force was pressing his head from above. His body was suddenly pressed by the huge strength of the spirit power, and he was unable to move. Then, there were hallucinations surrounding him together with countless intertwined spider webs which held him firmly. The entire space was a huge spider web.
As Chen Rui groaned in his heart, he saw a huge eyeball appearing in the spiderweb world. It seemed to be more than 10 meters high, and it wasglowing with a strange light. The moment Chen Rui stared at the eyeball, his expression suddenly fell in a trance. A voice kept telling himself to give up resistance and dedicate his life and soul automatically.
There are still so many things that I have not completed yet. There are still loved ones to guard. How can I give up my life? How can I be defeated in such a place?
At the same time, a warning of abnormal spirit invasion appeared in the Super System. Chen Rui woke up suddenly, and he suppressed the strange death will with his strong will. He bit the tip of his tongue abruptly and got rid of the spirit fluctuation control of that huge eye.
It was just that his body that was bound by the territory still couldn’t move as the huge eye was getting closer and closer. This spider web territory was a bit similar to Manu’s, but the nature was completely different, and its power was much inferior. Manu’s territory could mainly restrain mind control and puppets while this territory was obviously constraint and mind control.
However, the spider web territory was constructed by the spirit power of the peak of the Demon Emperor. It was far from Chen Rui’s ability to contend today. Is it that I have to use the self-destructive method I used in Manu’s territory to get rid of it?
Right! Chen Rui suddenly thought of something. As he was about to unleash it, the huge evil eye image in the center of the territory was suddenly blurred, and it became much smaller. The pressure of that kind of spiritual restraint was greatly reduced. Chen Rui exerted his force and finally broke free.
The entire territory was distorted for a while, but it recovered again soon. A person fell out of thin air in the territory, and it was Roman. The pupil of his left eye was blood red and the corner of his eye cracked open as blood flowed out.
Roman got up on his feet while panting violently. He apparently suffered a severe injury when he interfered with the territory just now.
“Why did you come back again?” Chen Rui was moved in his heart, but he scolded, “Go! Don’t come here to add more troubles!”
“Hehe… I just want to see if I can steal some benefits, but I didn’t expect to be discovered by it.”
Roman had a bit of Paglio’s demeanor. Stubborn and unwilling to admit the truth. He wiped his eyes casually without bothering about his blood-covered hands. He said bitterly, “I’m afraid I can’t escape even if I want to escape now.”
Countless spider webs stretched out from the territory again and rolled toward the two of them. Roman’s bloody eyes glowed with a faint red light. Those spider webs rolled back one after another, but they accumulated more and more. With every additional web, Roman’s pressure increased. He seemed to be unable to withstand it.
This was also the special restraining effect of [Destroying Evil] on the evil eye. If it was the previous Roman, perhaps he would be killed under this kind of peak Demon Emperor level territory with one encounter.
“Put away your [The Eye of Evil]! Quickly!”
Roman closed his eyes without thinking, and the spider web immediately surrounded him. At this moment, a mask appeared on Chen Rui’s face. The spider web gradually became thinner before disappearing under the mask’s strange force. Not only that, the mask was like a great whale absorbing water, swallowing the spirit power of the entire territory at an astonishing speed.
The power of God-Eating Mask’s [God Eater] – devouring all spirit power, magic and soul attacks!
For the evil eye who relied on spirit power, this was the biggest nemesis. The evil eye tyrant did not expect that the other party had such a terrifying skill, and it tried to take back its power, but it was too late. After a few seconds, the entire territory became fragile without the support of the spirit power. In the end, it disappeared without a trace following an exploding sound. The world of “spiderwebs” returned to the pitch dark underground ruins.
The evil eye tyrant had lost most of his spirit power, and its penetrative breath suddenly became a lot weaker. It made hissing noises mixed with horror and resentment. It started to float backwards like it was fleeing, but after pulling apart a certain distance, the huge eyeballs shot out a red ray at Roman.
Roman hurriedly used [Flash] to evade, but he was a step slower, and his outer thigh was hurt by the rays, causing his flesh and blood to spurt out. The wound was much more serious than expected. His flesh and blood were partially vaporized. It seemed that the ray was extremely hot.
Chen Rui’s [God Eater] skill could only be used once every 7 days, so he could no longer use it. He swallowed most of the spirit power of the evil eye just now, causing the territory to collapse, but the basic power of the evil eye still existed. Especially the talent ability of elemental rays, which was quite powerful.
Roman’s leg was injured, so his mobility was greatly affected. The tyrant intended to kill him while he was weak. The terrifying high-temperature rays fired one after another, but none of them were directed at Chen Rui. His act of devouring the territory caused the evil eye tyrant to be very fearful of him. This kind of attack on Roman was also testing and bullying the weakling.
3 more light rays shot over. Seeing that Roman was unable to dodge, Chen Rui’s figure suddenly blocked in front of him. The high-temperature rays hit Chen Rui’s body one after another. To be precise, it hit the shield in his hand.
The ray which was enough to melt metals actually disappeared instantly as it fell on this dark golden shield. There were no scratches on the shiny mirror-like shield, but Chen Rui was shocked by the momentum that he retreated 3 steps consecutively. He almost collided with Roman.
Roman’s eyes widened as he blurted out, “Demon Shield!”
This was the Demon Shield of the Illusive Demon Shield, the highest artifact of the Leviathan Family. It was one of Chen Rui’s gains in the Crystal Valley. Since it had been “cracked” by the [Deep Analysis], the Demon Shield was “bound” to Chen Rui’s body like the God-Eating Mask. He couldn’t even give it back to Delia even if he wanted to.
It might be the reason why it was not integrated with the IIlusive Shield. The function of the Demon Shield was not displayed in the Super System, but Chen Rui could already realize its benefits. Not only the 3 rays of the evil eye tyrant that hit the Demon Shield just now were blocked, at the same time, a warm current passed from the Demon Shield to Chen Rui’s body, quickly replenishing his previously consumed strength and making him quickly gain a steady foothold.
If the role of the IIlusive Shield was to reflect damage while defending, then Demon Shield was to absorb damage. If the power gap between the 2 sides was not particularly large, they could almost be invincible as long as the defense was proper. It was worthy of being the Demon Realm’s strongest defensive equipment.
I wonder what special power will Illusive Shield and Demon Shield have when they are combined into a full-form Illusive Demon Shield.
When Chen Rui moved his mind, his fingers spread out, and a dazzling light ball appeared. It drew a rapid meteor in the darkness which rushed towards the evil eye tyrant. The evil eye tyrant was shocked. If it was an ordinary evil eye, it could only resist, but the tyrant with the mutated skill avoided it with just a teleport.
However, the light ball that hit the air turned and flew over. The tyrant didn’t expect this as it teleported and dodged again, but the chasing light ball changed from 1 to 3. The tyrant instinctively felt that the light ball power seemed to be able to cause considerable damage to it, so it immediately launched a continuous teleport to avoid it. It fired rays from time to time, but unfortunately, it was either dodged by the enemy or blocked by the shield.
This kind of continuous teleportation and ray attack was quite laborious for the evil eye tyrant who had lost most of its spirit power. The gap between teleportations was getting longer which showed that it exhausted a lot of power. However, the control of the [Aurora Shot] was also quite exhausting. Chen Rui’s forehead was already sweaty, and the [Aurora Shot] was slowly weakening during long flight control. Chen Rui launched 3 more [Aurora Shot] in a row before it ran out.
The evil eye tyrant once again used the teleportation to avoid the consecutive [Aurora Shot]. Just as it landed, a figure rushed down from mid-air. The two blue lights in his hands swept toward the tyrant like lightning. It was Roman.
Roman’s timing of the attack was quite well grasped. He had been observing the teleport rhythm of the evil eye tyrant just now. The evil eye tyrant still couldn’t use the teleportation yet.
The advantage of this tyrant was its spirit power. Perhaps because its mutated spirit power was particularly high, the rest of its qualities were relatively low; they were only at Great Demon King level. Close combat was its weakness. As long as this attack was successful, it would definitely be injured severely.
As Roman’s double blades were about to pierce the tyrant, there was a sudden “boom” sound in his head as if he was being hit by a huge wave. His movements were stagnant while his body suddenly fell to the ground. He covered his head with a painful expression. If it wasn’t because the evil eye tyrant had consumed a huge amount of spirit power and the protection of the [Destroying Evil] power, this powerful spirit shock was enough to make him faint on the spot.
The spirit shock which was shot in a rush made the evil eye tyrant’s power to drop drastically. As it was about to release rays to destroy the nasty sneak attacker, it suddenly felt a dangerous breath ahead. It saw the enemy with strange abilities was covered in black flames, and the entire passage was dyed with a strange color.
Originally, ordinary attacks could not break through the tyrant’s mental defenses which were spread all over its skin, but Roman’s dual blades that went all out contained a special [Destroying Evil] power which was the nemesis of the evil eye. Two blue lights were firmly nailed to the tyrant. One of them was nailed to the only huge eye in the center, and a lot of fluid came out of its wound.
The evil eye tyrant screamed in agony, and its spirit power burst out fiercely like a real storm. Roman was severely smashed on the opposite stone wall by an overwhelming powerful force. It almost broke the power that was protecting his body. His internal organs were severely injured as he spat out several mouthfuls of blood. He was almost unable to move.
After the evil eye tyrant burst out of the spirit storm, all kinds of feelings such as confusion and feebleness suddenly appeared in its brain. However, for the evil eye, which was almost immune to negative spiritual magic, this kind of power was not enough to scare it. What horrified it was that all qualities, no matter it was spirit power or speed, had been weakened at the same time.
Immediately afterward, the cave seemed to tremble under the influence of some terrifying force. The terrifying breath brewing on the opposite side had exploded. The evil eye tyrant had to barely open its wounded eyes to vaguely see a winding huge red creature pounced toward it., The terrifying aura emanating from his body made it feel a strong fear.
At this time, the evil eye tyrant was almost exhausted. It could no longer use the teleportation. It could only shift the remaining spirit power to resist it, but it was still unable to take it. The injured eyeball was constantly squirting fluid under the immense pressure, and its protection power was gradually collapsing before it finally lost its consciousness.
After a long time, the tremor of the cave finally stopped.
“This guy is actually not dead?” Chen Rui’s voice was a little surprised. It is indeed a demonic beasts of the Demon Emperor level. It took on the [Scorching Dragon Kill] head on in the [Dark Star Territory], but it hasn’t died yet.
“Not dead?” Roman coughed up blood while barely supporting his body to get up. He suddenly thought of something, and he was euphoric, “I hit the jackpot this time!”
