Laktos had the intention to kill this Chief Tauren at the fastest speed so that he could lead the soldiers to break through the besiege. He immediately chanted the spell silently, and 8 [Thunderballs] appeared around him. They formed an intersecting trajectory in the air and flew toward the opponent.
Chief Tauren couldn’t avoid it. He waved the huge shield in his hand into a gust of wind. This huge shield seemed to be able to isolate and disintegrate magic. The [Thunderballs] turned into electric sparks with buzzing sounds under the impact of the shield and disappeared without a trace. The 8 [Thunderballs] disappeared under the clean shield strike.
However, this was just a superficial attack by Laktos to attract the enemy. When Chief Tauren cleared the [Thunderballs], a disintegrated electric spark condensed on the right side into a ghostly figure of the Demon Emperor dark elf. The narrow thin sword glowed with blue light slashed toward tauren’s throat silently.
The dark elf’s speed and assassination technique were the best in the Demon Realm. This sword gathered power on a point. Its power was amazing, and the timing was quite precise. It was the fatigue period when Chief Tauren had used up his old strength and had yet gathered new strength. There was no way to avoid it.
At the moment of life and death, Chief Tauren suddenly did an unimaginable thing. He boldly bit the sword with his teeth. Although the tauren was not the “demonic beasts” that was known for its bite force, he indeed firmly bit the deadly sword.
Laktos’ surprise was only fleeting, and his territory power exploded rapidly. As he was about to hit another killing move, He glanced at something on tauren’s forehead suddenly. The item was about the size of a jewel which was flashing with a faint red light, and it seemed to be some kind of pupil.
The moment he stared at it, the “pupil” suddenly flashed with a dazzling golden light. Laktos felt dizzy and his soul had a strong urge to break through the body as if he had been called by the god of death.
Laktos was stupefied and he instinctively felt something amiss. He tried to urge himself to wake up quickly in his consciousness. However, at the moment when he was about to regain his senses, a large axe with terrifying wind pressure already slashed him.
The soldiers behind only saw that General Laktos’ sword was bitten by a tauren, then he stood unsteadily like he was drunk. The next second, the dark elf was split by an axe into half, and 2 pieces of corpses fell in a pool of blood.
Chief Tauren spat out the long sword in his mouth with 2 missing teeth. He howled at Laktos’s corpse before pouncing on the next target.
If Chen Rui was here, he would be able to understand the meaning of Delong’s howling- Unlucky guy!
Laktos was indeed unlucky. The third eye on Delong’s forehead was a mutation of the Eye of Sauron given by Chen Rui, which could greatly strengthen Delong’s defense. This was also the reason why he was able to bite the sword at the critical moment. Otherwise, it would not be as simple as losing 2 teeth. In addition, the Eye of Sauron also gave Delong a special skill called [Death Gaze] that had the chance to cast the curse to kill the enemy immediately.
[Death Gaze] had a very small chance of casting, but it happened that Laktos encountered it unluckily. Initially, with the strength of Laktos, he would not die immediately. However, his soul was temporarily in chaos, but this “temporary” was enough to determine life and death in this kind of battle.
Gerant still didn’t know that his deputy, Laktos, was dead. He faced many enemies who had rushed out of the Walan Fortress. Many of the infantry behind had collapsed after being shot by the arrows of the pursuing army, and the front was blocked by the taurens. If they fight by force, the whole army would be wiped out. He must find a way to break through.
Gerant set his gaze on the cavalry who was leading the Walan Fortress defending soldiers, and he ordered the elite guards to charge toward the cavalry. Gerant’s cavalries were equipped with both long and short spears. The long spear was used for charging, and the short spear was used for throwing. Sergey and other elite guards were well-trained. When they threw the short spears at the enemy, the Walan Fortress defending soldiers were caught off guard. Dozens of them were hit by the spear; they either collapsed to the ground or fell off their mounts. The leading cavalry immediately moved forward. With a wave of the greatsword in the hand, all the spears that were thrown from nearby were cut off.
With a flash of red light, Gerant’s figure appeared above the cavalry. At this moment, the rain suddenly rolled back strangely, forming a vacuum force field created by the territory power. Gerant, who was at the center, cast countless blood-red light snakes from his hand and shrouded toward the cavalry.
However, the countless light snakes shook inexplicably, and they stopped before touching the cavalry. The blood-red color was quickly dyed blue, and the agile and winding body became stagnant and slow.
Immediately afterward, the vacuum force field seemed to be shattered like a glass. The blood-red light snakes disappeared and turned back to Gerant’s Netherblood Spear. The tip of the spear was held in the palm of a figure.
The figure standing in front of the cavalry leader was burly. He was wearing a black half-length metal armor with bizarre gloves on both hands, exuding a chilling vibe. He grabbed Gerant’s Netherblood Spear with his bare hands, completely disintegrating the assault.
Gerant shook his wrist and shook away his gloves. The opponent’s counterattack came over like his shadow. This enemy’s power was a realm greater than Gerant, and his combat power was extremely strong. This immediately put him in a passive position.
Seeing that Gerant was suppressed by ally powerhouse, the previous greatsword cavalry took off her helmet, revealing her purple hair. The heroic and beautiful face shocked the sharp-eyed Sergey in front of him. Athena!
The daughter of the first general, the champion who defeated him in the youth swordsmanship contest, the beautiful woman who defeated him again at the Dark Moon Army camp and rejected his proposal in public, had become a shining star of the Dark Moon. She led the army in the Moonlight Fortress to block the onslaught of the capital coalition army again and again. On the other hand, he, the son of the second general, was only a mere guard of the Saber-toothed Tiger Legion.
Such a good woman. It’s nothing if she looks down at me, but why would she be so loyal to that cowardly and incompetent human!
Just when Sergey was full of resentment, Athena had already changed into her battle form. The fiery flames enveloped her body, and a long curved horn stretched out from her head. Her hair and skin became crimson. The raindrops evaporated before touching her body. That kind of terrifying breath made even Sergey, who was at a distance, tremble.
This is by no means a Higher Demon! It’s not even the Demon King!
Great Demon King?
How can it be! Sergey had goosebumps. The flame-like figure instantly appeared in front of him which was the area where the Saber-toothed Tiger Legion elite guards were concentrated at. Then, the greatsword which emanated a fiery flame impactfully slashed toward this side.
This was the last consciousness in Sergey’s life, then his whole body was shattered and annihilated with this feeling.
In a fan-shaped area of tens of meters, under the lava-like fiery power, both the elite guards and the horses were crushed by the terrifying power. There was not a complete corpse left.
Athena did not know that there was an “old acquaintance” who was full of envy, jealousy and hatred among the dead souls under the sword. Just now, her [Judgement] blow was the skill of the quasi-artifact itself. She also incorporated her own spatial mutated talent. It was extremely powerful and no enemy was spared.
This slash almost reduced the morale of the Saber-toothed Tiger Legion to the lowest point. No one dared to take the initiative to attack for a while.
Gerant caught a glimpse of this scene. While he was palpitating and distracted, he was hit by 2 punches of the opponent again. The punch power that penetrated into his body carried a strange water element power which reduced his body’s agility. Gerant didn’t dare to prolong the battle. He flicked his spear and activated his teleport talent. As soon as he got further, his feet were inexplicably tightened. He actually couldn’t move as both his ankles were grabbed by a pair of big hands that suddenly appeared under the ground.
Gerant was shocked. He stabbed the Netherblood Spear downward, only to feel that it stabbed some metal. The fire sparks were splashing everywhere. His feet still couldn’t break free. At this time, the enemy wearing the gloves quickly appeared behind him, and a punch with burning blue mist hit Gerant’s back hard. His back armor dented in, and a fist mark protruded from the armor on his chest accompanied by the sound of broken bones.
Gerant groaned and spouted a lot of blood with ice slag from his mouth. This punch was extremely violent and caused serious internal injuries. The opponent’s next 2 hits froze Gerant’s lower body, completely taking away his combat power.
The elite guards and soldiers of the Saber-toothed Tiger Legion were red-eyed when they saw that Gerant was being controlled. They didn’t care about breaking through the encirclement and rushed toward this side recklessly. They were surrounded by the taurens and the Walan Fortress defending soldiers like the filling of a dumpling.
At this time, the “thing” that grabbed Gerant’s ankle on the ground slowly “floated” out. This was a strange human figure. The body was made of rock-like material. The facial features and muscles were relatively unclear, and a faint green light glowed in its eyes. The blow of the Netherblood spear just now left a slight scratch on its shoulder.
“The earth elemental!” Gerant groaned. The earth elemental’s defense is the strongest. No wonder the Netherblood Spear can’t penetrate it. The question is, how does the Dark Moon have so many types of reinforcements? They even have elementals! And it is also the elite leader of the Demon Emperor!
The Demon Emperor level earth elemental was none other than Tag. Under the magic power of the Fertile Yuan Soil, Tag successfully broke through to the Demon Emperor level. In order to help Chen Rui, Earth Elemental King Moore sent Tag to Walan Fortress as a precaution while the rest of the earth elementals continued to absorb the power of the Fertile Yuan Soil in the Earth Realm. It would be completed in 3 months, and more powerful elite earth elementals would be born at that time.
Tag bowed to Athena who approached, then he gradually sank into the ground and disappeared. His mission had been completed and he could return to the Earth Realm through Walan Fortress’s teleportation portal to continue to absorb the Fertile Yuan Soil.
Gerant believed he would definitely die, so he was fearless. It was just that Tag’s respect for Athena had shocked him. The taurens, earth elementals, medusas, wyvern, undead army…
This time the regent’s crusade against the Dark Moon for ridiculous reasons was a stroke of luck. We never knew before the crusade.The hidden power of Dark Moon Estate is too terrifying. If this continues, the Dark Moon’s power will rise to a terrifying level. By then, I’m afraid that the capital will not have the ability to conquer the Dark Moon, and it will in turn be swallowed by the Dark Moon.
Facing the heroic commander, who was also the daughter of the first general in the empire, Gerant coughed up blood. He didn’t show arrogance or beg for mercy. He just said indifferently, “I lost. I admit my defeat to General George.”
Athena deactivated her combat form and shook her head, “You’re wrong. It is the Red Blood Flame Army of the Lord of Midnight Sun that defeated you.”
Gerant looked at the flag that once shook the entire Demon Realm. His expression was a bit complicated, and he sighed, “Let my soldiers go.”
Athena nodded. With a shout, the circle of taurens and Walan Fortress defending soldiers stopped immediately. At this time, more than half of the Saber-toothed Tiger Legion was down, and only about 2000 people remained.
“Put down your weapons and surrender! Otherwise, kill them!”
Seeing Gerant controlled by Athena, the soldiers of the Saber-toothed Tiger Legion did not hesitate and threw their weapons on the ground.
“General Gerant, for the sake of these loyal soldiers, please don’t have any wild thoughts.”
The implication was that: If you dare to escape or commit suicide, all the captured soldiers will be buried with you.
“Understood.” Gerant smiled bitterly. She is worthy of being General George’s daughter. She has even the same exact demeanor.
The heavy rain was still pouring, and the sky began to show a gray color. The Walan Fortress was completely quiet. Only the blood that the rain could not wash away seemed to be grieving about the passing of thousands of lives just now.
Unlike the heavy rain in the Xilang Mountain Range, the capital’s sky was clear. The white 2 moons in the dawn still carried a bit of coldness that had not been erased in the evening.
For the vast majority of people in the capital, last night was a sleepless night with horror.
Fortunately, the fierce fighting was finally over. There were no longer explosion sounds, and the flames were all extinguished.
What was eye-catching was the mountain of corpses that could not be buried on the spot. They could only be dragged outside the city to be burned. The carts of corpses attracted countless horrified gazes along the way.
In this battle, the Red Devil Legion was annihilated, the legion commander and the second general of the Empire, Doren.Rus, died. Some families that swore allegiance to Obsidian were also ruthlessly rooted out. The entire capital was already under the control of the invading army.
The strange matter was that this army did not attack the palace, nor did it have any atrocities of burning, killing or plundering, but it stationed in the capital barracks as if it was merely replacing the original duty of the capital legion. A slight difference was that the guards and patrols in the inner and outer cities had increased several times.
Neither the palace nor the elder families made any statements about this. Some of the “administrative departments” in the capital dominated by the elder families actually operated normally as usual. Not only they did not conflict with the army, but they also showed an intriguing tacit understanding.
Subsequently, there was news that the commander of this army was the first general of the empire George. Wales of the Warlock Fortress. In addition to the elites of the Warlock Fortress, there was also the White Feather Estate army led by Lord Sicali of the White Feather Estate.
At the same time, the battle news on the front line, which had been covered before, flew everywhere like snowflakes – The capital’s Magic Shadow Legion failed in an ambush, and General Nesta surrendered to the enemy; the Nether Hydra Legion was wiped out by the Dark Moon Army, and General Samoer died. The capital army was blocked at the Moonlight Fortress, with numerous casualties, and it took a long time to take down an abandoned empty fortress; Deputy Commander Pallor, who led the 3 legion and aerial legion, the Flying Cloud Legion, was ambushed by the Dark Moon’s undead army in Town Dico and almost annihilated…
The Dark Moon’s power at hand was far beyond imagination. The sure-win crusade of “Millions vs. Hundreds of Thousands” turned into a tug-of-war of equals. Coupled with the military that occupied the capital this time, there were already 3 out of 4 major estates that sided with Obsidian’s opponent (actually all 4). Judging from the performance of all aspects, the Fallen Angel Empire was probably about to undergo a major change.
For a time, everyone’s eyes were focused on a battlefield in the Dark Moon which would be the real decisive battle that would determine the fate of the entire empire.
Would Shea win 1v1 against Obsidian? Chen Rui won’t be in time to join the battlefield again right? By the way, Tag just appeared and restrained the enemy’s legs? Is this the so-called help?
