The collision of flames and lightning produced a powerful force field spread at the location where both of them clashed. The ground was shaking violently, and the rubble and debris scattered around in the air like it was blown by a whirlwind. Some undead who were not able to avoid in time in the distance were shattered by the shockwave.
Next, there were several evenly matched fierce counterattacks. Neither side used the territory, but each attack contained the strongest territory power. If one was careless, he might be slashed down from the ride.
Toros had several scars on his body, and his power consumption was huge, but the fighting spirit in his eyes was more intense. The scythe in his hand rotated at an astonishing speed to form a fuzzy circle. Under the terrifying wind pressure, the cracked stone slab on the ground nearby turned into powder.
When his charged power reached the limit, Toros shouted, and his scythe waved along with the force of rotation toward the terror knight. 7 undulating flame ripples spread forward violently as though a fire dragon was diving under the ground.
The terror knight was also charging a powerful blow. The spear in his hand was wrapped in a large amount of black energy. The black energy quickly swallowed a certain force in the surrounding air, and even the space fluctuated because of it. At the same time, when Toros launched the big move, the spear engulfed by black energy shot out at Toros like ligthning.
The 2 powerful attacks did not cancel each other, but they passed through each other.
The 7 ripples suddenly shot out from the ground at the moment they touched the terror knight, and the flames soaring up into the sky erupted into a terrifying sharp qi that contained territory power. The terror knight was unable to dodge as he just used up all his power to launch the long spear. He collapsed with his horse and shattered apart in pieces.
When the spear arrived, Toros was also exhausted due to the big move just now, but the great demon’s talent for teleportation was still there. Facing the knight’s spear that exuded the soul-piercing breath of death, Toros burnt his last remaining strength to launch a teleport, moving far away from the mount at a close call.
The moment Toros finished his teleportation and stabilized his figure, he suddenly felt that his soul was locked by the breath of death again. A spear appeared in front of his eyes in an instant. Just as he came to his senses, the cold death had already penetrated his heart and came out from his back.
The spear with black energy gradually condensed into a substantial figure. The person holding the handle of the spear was the terror knight just now. His body was intact, but his armor was broken. A large amount of black energy overflowed from his body from time to time due to the slash wiybds.
Toros’s pupils contracted and finally understood why he was defeated. However, he was already unable to fight back. The breath of death spread by the spear quickly spread across his internal organs and his whole body, devouring his last vitality at a terrifying speed.
Immediately after that, the terror knight withdrew his spear, and Toros’s body seemed to be emptied. He collapsed and lost his breath.
The second legion’s Commander Toros, killed in action.
When the black knight appeared in the sight of the second legion soldiers and raised the scythe that originally belonged to the legion commander, Toros, the fighting spirit of the soldiers plummeted almost instantly. On the other hand, the undead ignored all this and still surged like a tide.
Toros was not the first Demon Emperor powerhouse to fall in this battle. Not long ago, the deputy legion commander of the third legion to the south of the circle formation, Lonjee of the early stage of the Demon Emperor, was killed in the battle. Unlike Toros’s dignified duel, Lonjee died of a sneak attack. The sneak attack was done by a strange undead with a pale hideous face. He was wearing a long brown robe and was extremely fast. It seemed to be a rumored bloodsucking creature. Lonjee died after all his blood was being sucked up. It was too late to activate the territory.
This undead army actually has more than one Demon Emperor-level leader! One after another bad news shocked Pallor’s heart even more. Now the military morale was shaken severely, and the circle formation was shrinking. It was at the brink of collapse.
If he chose to break through without considering the loss, even if he could succeed, he would also not be able to face Regent Obsidian with the result of this fiasco. Only killing the controlling magician and destroying the undead army was the only hope.
Pegasus had been closing his eyes to sense the controlling magician who manipulated the undead army. Even if the terror knights or the vampires appeared, there was no special reaction.
Seeing more and more casualties among the soldiers, Pallor gritted his teeth and was about to order the entire army to break through from the north. He saw Pegasus suddenly opened his eyes and stood up. When Pallor looked at him again, his figure had disappeared.
Knowing that Pegasus must have discovered something, Pallor immediately lifted his spirits and personally came to the forefront to command the battle. He encouraged the soldiers to hold the line of defense.
Pegasus’ figure appeared in the air instantly. Ignoring the tide of undead army below, he looked at the [Dark Sky] behind the army. His figure flickered a few times, and he had rushed into the black mist.
Even the eyesight of the Demon Overlord could not penetrate the [Dark Sky], but the Demon Overlord level powerhouse did not need to “see” with his eyes. Relying on Pegasus’ perception of territory power, he had already sensed a special spirit fluctuation faintly transmitted from this area when he was at the center of the circle formation. This fluctuation affected the attack frequency of the entire undead army. Now that he was closer to the black mist, the feeling was clearer. The undead magician must be here!
The opponent seemed to sense Pegasus’ approach and began to move quickly backward. Pegasus was even more sure that this moving guy was the magician behind the undead army, so he did not hesitate to chase after him.
The magician’s means were very superb and indistinct. He seemed to be divided into countless clones that fled in all directions. However, these couldn’t confuse Pegasus’ spirit power. After locking the magician’s true body, he surpassed the other party and blocked in front.
At this time, both of them had passed through the layers of [Dark Sky] and came in front of a hillside outside Town Dico.
This was a tall and thin man wearing a black cloak. He was faintly wrapped in black energy. His true face could not be seen. His body faintly exuded dark elements fluctuations.
“Impossible! You actually saw through my [Mirror Image]!” The magician in a black cloak sounded horrified.
Pegasus sneered, “It’s just a simple trick. How can you escape the senses of the Demon Overlord’s territory? You are a magician at the peak stage of the Demon Emperor. However, you can actually control so many undead armies, and there are even the same level Demon Emperor terror knight and vampire. This surprised me. I don’t know what benefit made you stand on the Dark Moon’s side. Now you have only 2 paths. The first is destruction, and the second is surrender. I will give you 1 minute to choose… Or maybe you can try to resist.”
How could the magician in a black cloak surrender willingly. Several spears made of bones appeared around him, and they shot away from all directions toward Pegasus.
However, before they touched Pegasus, the bone spears came to a halt. They were trembling and buzzing, but they couldn’t move forward an inch. Pegasus waved his hand, and a bone spear involuntarily flew to his front. He gently grasped it, and it recovered into a bone that was less than 1 meter, “A very interesting magic. With bones as the core, extending and condensing the power of death into one point. The power is indeed commendable. Unfortunately, I’m training in both magic and physical strength. I don’t even need to evade an attack of this level.”
As soon as he finished speaking, all the bone spears around him exploded and scattered into powder.
When the magician in a black cloak was chanting a spell in a low voice, a huge blood-red long handle scythe appeared out of thin air. It instantly flashed in front of Pegasus. It turned into countless sharp qi that could rip apart the air and surrounded him. It was the strongest single-unit dark magic, [Dark Blood Scythe]!
Pegasus sneered as his body instantly surged with unparalleled momentum. He punched directly without avoiding it. If it was the [Dark Blood Scythe] released by a Demon Overlord opponent, he would definitely not dare to do it like this. However, the magician in front of him was only the peak stage of the Demon Emperor. Although it was only one step away from Demon Overlord, it was still a world’s difference from the real Demon Overlord.
Under the terrifying pressure of this fist, every inch of the [Dark Blood Scythe] shattered and disappeared without a trace along with those sharp qi.
Pegasus wanted to deliberately deter the other party, but unfortunately this intent was in vain. The magician had already used the opportunity to turn to a puff of black smoke and fled toward the rear when Pegasus was smashing the [Dark Blood Scythe].
“The time is up. Your action shows that you have chosen the road of death.” Pegasus’ figure appeared in front of the black smoke instantly, and he was about to kill the magician. Suddenly, an extremely dangerous warning came in his mind. His figure in pursuit was incredibly upturned as he flew backwards in a movement that violated the rules of mechanics.
Almost at the same time, something huge broke out of the ground. Although Pegasus braked in time, he was half a beat slow. He was hit by the giant shadow. He flew out several tens of meters before he barely stabilized in the air. His face was a little pale as a trace of blood slowly overflowed from the corner of his mouth, but his gaze became extraordinarily serious.
What greeted him was a terrifyingly huge body.
Giant dragon! To be more precise, it was the skeleton of a giant dragon. Except for a pair of giant wings that seemed to be condensed into a wing membrane with some kind of energy, the rest were all bones. The ghastly white bones were wrapped in a strange luster. The red light representing life began to ignite at the 2 holes in its eye sockets. Its whole body exuded a terrifying and spooky breath.
There was horror in Pegasus’ eyes. He had never seen dragons in this form. Could it be that it is also a creature transformed by this undead magician? A mere Demon Emperor-level magician can actually transform a Demon Overlord-level dragon. This is simply unbelievable!
This weird dragon not only possessed the dragon demeanor of the giant dragon, but it also exuded a breath comparable to his. From the horrible impact that broke his ribs just now, it could be seen that this was a real intermediate stage of the Demon Overlord monster!
Not only that, the blow also carried a strange power which seemed to greatly deplete his vitality and weaken his power.
Fortunately, the bloodline talent [Heart of Light and Dark] of the Lucifer Royal Family could absorb various powers of light and dark elements. His weakness only lasted for a while before it began to fade quickly.
“Let me introduce my most powerful partner, spirit dragon.” The magician in a black cloak laughed creepily. The red light in the eyes of the “spirit dragon” flashed, and a cold murderous intent locked on Pegasus tightly.
This was not a copied version of the slime in Mountain Xilang, but the highest “career” achievement of the most famous undead magician after countless experiments!
A real spirit dragon!
Dodo🤧: Who is talking about me? Was this Demon Emperor magician Guradam himself? Or it was just a substitution?
