What appeared in front of everyone was a huge dragon with tawny scales, two cheeks with fin-like things, and a row of short horns on the top of the head. He was covered with a layer of black armor. His dark golden snake eyes glowed with a ghastly light.
Just now, the dragon roar contained a powerful dragon demeanor, and its lethality was indiscriminate. Regardless of the demonic beasts in the air or the attacking and defending sides on the ground, they were all shocked out of their senses and their limbs became feeble. Many enemy troops on the siege ladder were shaken to the ground. The only thing that was not impacted was the Guardian Vines. Taking advantage of this opportunity, they regenerated quickly and shredded the siege ladder one by one.
The petrified griffins retreated in terror and dared not step forward. The wyverns were strictly trained pseudo-dragons after all. Although they were afraid of the dragon demeanor, under the command of the dragon rider’s beast taming skill, many of them turned around, flew back and rushed toward the dragon cautiously.
As the wings of the giant dragon flicked, painful screams sounded endlessly. Even without attacking with the dragon’s claws or teeth, the wyverns that were touched lost their balance and fell to the ground. Many wyverns’ bodies were puffing with green smoke. They were corroded by some kind of terrifying poison, and soon their bones were exposed.
Meanwhile, the attack of the wyverns couldn’t penetrate or even leave a mark on the black armor on the dragon’s body at all. As for the poison of wyvern, it was a joke in front of the poison ancestor, poison dragon.
At this time, the wyverns and griffins in black armor behind the Dark Moon rushed to the battlefield. These demonic beasts of the Wyvern Legion had faced Paglio many times in the training base of the black rainforest. Although feeling fearful in their hearts, their performance was better than the capital’s aerial legion. They avoided the poison dragon and rushed toward the capital’s aerial legion that was in panic.
A thrilling air battle began. The air was full of the roar and biting of demonic beasts, and countless flying and hovering shadows dimmed the light of the 2 moons.
The Dark Moon’s aerial legion was at an absolute disadvantage in terms of numbers, but its strength far exceeded the expectation of its opponents. Equipment-wise, in addition to the necessary long spears, the aerial riders of the Dark Moon also had throwable short spears and the armor-piercing crossbow that could shoot explosive bolts. They could launch powerful attacks from a distance.
The difference in equipment was also evident on the demonic beasts. Even the weakest griffin of the Dark Moon was covered with armor. This armor was made of a special material and craftsmanship. It was light and tough, so it had little impact on their flying speed. On the other hand, the capital’s aerial legion, except for some elite wyverns and manticores who had armor, the rest were almost naked, having only the flying bridle that assisted the rider’s control.
These equipment were actually a battle of wealth. Putting aside the quantity and just looking at the equipment, one would think that the aerial legion of the Dark Moon was the strongest regular army of the empire’s capital. This was undoubtedly a blow to their self-esteem. In this real battlefield of life and death, it was not just the self-esteem at stake, but life as well.
The Dark Moon was not only superior in equipment, but also in the wyvern’s individual strength. The power of the wyverns were obviously stronger than that of the capital’s wyverns. Many also had special abilities such as spurting flames, freezing poison breath, doubling the fortitude, doubling the flight speed and so on. If it was a one-to-one battle, they could abuse their opponents to death.
The capital’s Flying Cloud Legion commander, Rometty, who was riding behind a mutated double-headed manticore, looked a little startled. She thought she saw it wrongly. Damn. Are these still the wyvern? It’s okay if it’s only a couple of them, but why are all of them so vigorous?
If Rometty knew what the wyverns of the Dark Moon had eaten, she wouldn’t be so surprised… No, this answer should make her even more shocked- Someone would feed the demonic beasts? And there are hundreds and thousands of them?
But Rometty didn’t have time to think about it. What she needed to concentrate on now was the terrifying dragon. Although the breath that she sensed from the dragon was far better than her Demon Emperor level, under her command, dozens of members of the manticore team led the Flying Cloud Legion’s most elite 1,000 griffins to surround the dragon.
These griffins had all activated some kind of magic tattoo. The mysterious power generated by the interlaced flying and transposition could barely offset the terrifying attack from the dragon. However, it was barely restrained only because the dragon’s power and the dragon’s demeanor was too terrifying.
Even this kind of formation could not last long. There would be griffins seriously injured or killed with every blow. All they could do was to trap their opponents as much as possible in order to buy time for the siege troops on the ground while waiting for reinforcements from their powerhouses.
Rometty launched her power to disrupt the dragon at critical moments from time to time. She tried her best to minimize the loss of the elites, but the defense power of the dragon was too amazing. Not to mention the armor, even the wings were impenetrable after being hit by her magic arrow.
“Beauty, are you free? Why don’t we find a quiet place to talk about our ideals and life?” A clear and powerful voice pierced into Rometty’s ears. Rometty turned her head sharply and saw a wyvern carrying a man on its back rushing toward her.
Rometty could see that the wyvern was definitely a mutated king. Its strength has reached the Demon Emperor level which is comparable to my double-headed manticore. So… the enemy behind the wyvern should be the commander of the enemy’s aerial legion?
If I can kill the opponent, it should be able to smash the Dark Moon Army’s morale. When Rometty thought of this, she urged the double-headed manticore to fly at the opponent without a second thought.
The moment both of them passed by each other, the 2 demonic beasts of the Demon Emperor level had already exchanged a few hits. As soon as they had moved apart, Rometty behind the manticore suddenly turned back. She shot 7 magic arrows which contained powerful powers almost instantly. The target was the rider behind the wyvern king.
That rider also turned around, and the 7 magic arrows suddenly stopped the moment they approached him, then they broke into half almost simultaneously and fell to the ground.
Rometty’s pupils contracted slightly. Her archery skill was the best in the capital. Just now, this [7 Flashy Sparks] contained 4 changes. The 3 arrows would speed up suddenly, and 1 of them would draw an arc and attack from the side. However, in the blink of an eye, the arrows were cut off by the opponent without exception; not avoiding, but cut off!
The passing by, shooting and breaking the arrows happened in a split second. The wyvern king and the double-headed manticore hovered and turned back again.
“Beauty, I have received your love. I think we have the hope to develop ‘further’.”
This frivolous voice did not arouse Rometty’s special anger. On the contrary, the sexy lavender lips curled slightly, and her powerful combat intent surged. The quasi-legendary grade weapon Purple Electric Bow in her hand began to make a buzzing electric current sound.
The addition of the aerial legion boosted the morale of the Dark Moon’s defending soldiers. They could finally free their hands to concentrate on the enemy troops’ siege, but the pressure was still enormous. After the capital army formations and regular legion joined the siege, the ground’s attack became fiercer. Fearless battles could be seen everywhere on the city wall. Before the original enemies were cleared, a new siege ladder had been erected.
In front of the huge iron gate of the fortress, several charger demonic beasts had already approached step by step due to the Demon Equip Legion’s hustle. This kind of beast’s skin was tough. They had 3 hard blunt horns on their forehead, and they had great incomparable strength. Their ramming ability was particularly amazing. It was a nightmare for all defense facilities.
The fortress soldiers desperately fired arrows at the charger demonic beasts, but the Demon Equip Legion was prepared long ago. Not only were the huge beasts covered with armor, but there were also soldiers on both sides and behind holding huge shields to protect them. Even armor-piercing arrows could not penetrate it.
On the other side, the Blood Flag Legion’s goblin warriors, that had crossed the Dark Moon’s magic crystal cannon’s attack range, began to quickly set up the siege equipment. Now that their allies had climbed into the city, using magic crystal cannon would easily hurt their own people. Therefore, the goblins were setting up catapults.
The Dark Moon City was in a fierce battle now. It was very difficult to even launch the magic crystal cannon, not to mention it took a lot of time to adjust the angle to attack these catapults. The crisis had become more and more intense.
The aerial battle was also very intense. The Dark Moon had an advantage in individual strength, but the number was much smaller than that of the opponent. Moreover, the rider’s experience was inferior to that of the opponent. They were often besieged by double or triple the enemy. They were just barely holding on with the opponent.
The charger demonic beasts approached closer, and their bodies were filled with arrows. Many defense soldiers with huge shields were also shot down by the Medusas, but they still couldn’t stop the charger demonic beasts’ footsteps. With the efforts of the goblin warriors, the catapults in the distance were quickly assembled, and the boulders poured with magic oil were set. The minotaurs pushed the winch hard to press the catapult’s spring to the lowest point. When the goblin warriors saw the boulder was set on fire, they pulled the launcher, “Teng! Teng! Teng…”
Several “meteors” carrying flames flew high, dragging a trail of thick smoke in the air as they flew toward the Moonlight Fortress. They smashed the fortifications or the ground behind the city wall with terrifying power. The burning gravel splashed, and exaggerated burnt flame pits appeared.
An arrow tower was hit, and half of it collapsed. The archers inside screamed and fell down. The lethality of these flame slings was really strong. The thick smoke began to emerge from the Moonlight Fortress.
At the critical moment, another dragon sounded. The elite griffins besieging the dragon fell down like hailstones. Many of them became skeletons before falling to the ground due to some terrifying power.
Rometty’s dual-headed manticore was fighting the wyvern king fiercely, and it was shocked by the dragon’s roar. Although the wyvern king was also shocked, it recovered much faster. When it bit the manticore’s head, the manticore struggled desperately to break free. It fluttered its wings and left. Its armor was completely torn, and there were 4 shocking bloody marks left by the wyvern king’s claws.
Rometty was about to draw the bow and shoot at the wyvern king that was chasing her. Suddenly, she felt cold on her shoulders. Her shoulder armor had been split into half and fell. There was a blade mark on her shoulder that was gushing out blood. She was secretly surprised: The hit exchanges were just a moment,, but… that guy’s speed is actually so quick!
What surprised her even more was that the giant dragon broke through the encirclement of the elite legion faster than she expected. Now, she must quickly get rid of the enemy behind her and command the army to hold the giant dragon again.
Roman was riding the wyvern king. In fact, the commander of the Wyvern Legion was someone else. Roman just wanted to hold back Rometty. After seeing through Rometty’s motive, he chased her closely, not giving her a chance to catch a breath.
After getting rid of the siege, Paglio spread his wings and swooped down. His target was the capital coalition army on the ground that were swarming and charging toward the fortress. When the poison dragon opened his huge mouth, he sprayed clouds of dragon’s breath. The speed of these dragon’s breaths was not very fast, spreading a green mist along the way.
However, something terrible happened. Wherever the mist went, whether it was the soldier or the horse, they turned into green smoke and dissipated. A criss-cross line of death was drawn in the crowd, and the battlefield was full of smoke. The soldiers at the back could not see the situation in front of them, so they just rushed forward blindly. Many soldiers in the front row were pushed into the mist and were gone before they could scream. When they reacted, countless lives were already lost. Many soldiers were in a huge panic.
The poison dragon was a kind of rare dragon. Its strength and talent were not the most powerful dragons, but in terms of war or mass killing, it was definitely the most terrifying dragon.
Paglio saw the crisis of the city gate and was about to fly away. Suddenly, he sensed a warning sign. His huge body twisted, and his long tail waved behind him like a whip.
A figure flashed behind him for an instant and avoided it.
“Powerful dragon,” the figure appeared in front of Paglio. He was a middle-aged man with 3 pairs of light wings behind him. He also exuded the breath of the peak stage of the Demon Overlord. “I’m Disyaro. Lucifer of the Fallen Angel Empire, this should not be a battlefield for the dragons. If sir leaves now, our Royal Highness is willing to pay a large fortune as compensation.”
The answer to Disjaro was a cloud of poisonous dragon’s breath. Disjaro frowned and dodged with his [Holy Wings]. He bowed slightly, “Sir, please don’t make a move first. I’m a friend of Elder Sosgalla of Dragon Island. Sir, for the sake of…”
Before he finished speaking, there was another clear dragon roar coming from the cube space made by Salgar’s territory. Sound was impossible to get out from this territory space initially, but the dragon roar came out. Then, in the next blink of an eye, the translucent cube space shattered like glass, and a huge figure appeared in it.
Disjaro’s face changed drastically. Another huge dragon!
This dragon was much smaller than the poison dragon. She was about 8 meters long. It was covered with black scales. Only the abdomen was slightly dark red. The claws and the ends of the horns glowed with pale silver light. She flapped her wings as she roared ferociously.
In the shattered space, a figure flew out unstably. It was Salgar, the commander of the Dragon Rider Legion. Judging from that look, he was obviously seriously injured. The wyvern king under Salgar was extremely spiritual. It immediately caught its master, and desperately fled toward its camp.
Don’t mention the regret in Salgar’s heart. That girl is actually a dragon! And she’s a black dragon, the nemesis of magic!
The strongest part of his space realm was infinite magic and magic power buffing. However, the prolonged reflections and refractions were simply tickling for her body. Finally, this chick was annoyed and transformed into her real body. A so-called [Black Dragon Cannon] ruined the whole space, and he was severely injured.
When Disjaro felt the breath of the black dragon, he felt even more shocked. The intermediate stage of the Demon Overlord black dragon! The peak stage of the Demon Overlord poison dragon! Krobelus, who has betrayed the Dark Moon, seems to be a dragon as well. An estate actually has 3 Demon Overlord dragons. Could it be that the Dragon Island is backing the Dark Moon Estate? How could this be possible?
Just as Disjaro was distracted, a terrifying force had hit from the side. It turned out that the giant dragon had turned into a man, taking advantage of his carelessness to launch a sneak attack. Disjaro parried in a hurry, but it was futile. The fist took a strange turn and hit his ribs. Disjaro felt a sharp pain, and he could already hear the sound of his bone breaking. He bore the pain while shouting, “Wait a minute!”
I need to stop just because you said to wait? Bah! Paglio had never been a gentleman. Besides, on the battlefield, he turned a deaf ear to Disjaro’s words. After his punch succeeded, he immediately launched a fierce attack.
Disjaro was put into a passive position. He had always cherished his reputation. The opponent’s power was stronger than he thought. Even under normal circumstances, he would not be an opponent. Besides, the other black dragon was nearby. If he stayed to fight, he would likely be dead.
Thinking of this, Disjaro took another 2 punches, and he took advantage of the force to fly. Finally, he escaped the stormy attack. Paglio’s disdainful voice came from behind, “I am a lonely spirit. What relationship do I have with the Dragon Island?! Even if you sell your ass to that Sosgalla, it’s useless!”
I’ve never seen such a despicable, shameless and rude dragon! The last sentence of the poison dragon made Disjaro almost spit out another mouthful of blood. He dared not stay, and he activated the [Holy Wings] to retreat toward the coalition army camp.
“Hey… chick! Don’t pursue too much! Get rid of the catapults below! That’s valuable!”
Olypheus was chasing Salgar after she just broke free from the residual power of the space realm. Hearing the last 2 words of the poison dragon, she immediately flew toward the flame sling catapults below. Facing the power of Ms. Black Dragon, those catapults were simply vulnerable. They were destroyed like they were extremely fragile.
Olypheus was very clever. She didn’t dare to attack the base camp of the capital coalition army, but she followed Paglio to bully the attacking enemy army on the front line.
In the fortress area, due to the deterrence of the poisonous fog, the attack from the capital coalition army’s had been significantly slower. Athena’s figure appeared on the city gate. With a clear scream, she leaped high and aimed her Judgement Greatsword in her hand and slashed toward the charger demonic beasts.
A fiery red light appeared on the greatsword. With Athena as the center, flesh and blood flew up in a fan-shaped area of about 70 meters. The enemy’s bodies were shattered as if they were crushed by some terrifying force. Even the huge beasts were no exception; the armor on their bodies was torn apart.
Artifact greatsword’s own skill, [Judgement]!
Athena’s move successfully cleared the biggest threat at the city gate. She took the rope thrown by Nesta and rose rapidly. She teleported on the way and reached the city wall, dodging those arrows flying toward her.
Due to the rampage of the 2 giant dragons, the capital’s aerial legion had begun to collapse. The destruction of the catapults and the charger demonic beasts boosted the morale of the defending soldiers. The situation suddenly reversed.
The front army commander, Gerant, watched carefully. Rometty was entangled, Salgar was seriously injured, and Disjaro, who was unwilling to prolong the fight, was defeated and left. At this time, the sky started to darken. The night battle was even more unfavorable for the coalition army. If this continued, the loss would become greater and greater. He sighed immediately and blew the horn of retreat.
In the coalition army camp, all the soldiers looked at each other. No one thought that the first battle against the Dark Moon would actually end in failure.
Seeing the demonic beasts flying away in the air and the enemy troops retreating like a tide on the ground, the Dark Moon’s defending soldiers cheered loudly.
Hearing the distant cheers, in the capital’s central army camp, the regent and coalition army commander, Obsidian’s hazy purple pupils seemed even more gloomy.
What’s next? Would Obsidian command the army personally now?
