The siege was getting closer. Following the order from Strena who took over the command, the 2 main magic crystal cannons at the head and tail of the Devil’s Snare Ship shot a powerful white light beam at the beast tide.
Wherever the terrifying energy passed, huge waves were set off. The sea beasts were broken down into particles and disappeared without a trace.
The 2 light beams swept for a while before they gradually dimmed, but the sea beasts were fearless. They continued to pursue successively. The 2 fan-shaped empty spaces were quickly filled up by the beast tide.
The range and power of the main cannons surprised Strena, but although this magic crystal cannon was powerful, it took longer to cool down than normal main cannons. The severe situation made her react immediately with another order. Amid the explosions, the rows of open side cannons on both sides of the ship began to launch fiery shots. The firing frequency and accuracy controlled by the sandmen were excellent, but the power of the side cannons was far inferior to that of the improved magic crystal cannon. Although the lethality was still quite decent, it was a drop in the bucket in the face of the swarming beast tide.
Once Devil’s Snare Ship was completely surrounded by sea beast tide, they could only wait helplessly for death no matter how sturdy the ship was.
A figure flew out from the Devil’s Snare Ship. Facing the beast tide at the forefront, dozens of white light balls whizzed out like shotgun bullets. The destructive light balls cleared out dozens of trajectories among the beast tide before they exploded into the water. These shallow trajectories seemed so insignificant in the dense swarming beast tide; they disappeared in an instant.
Chen Rui knew that there were too many sea beasts, and the attack of [Aurora Shot] certainly couldn’t play an effective role. The purpose of this was to taunt them. After launching the [Aurora Shots], he went deeper. He could clearly see the ferocious eyes and sharp claws of those sea beasts.
Many sea beasts surged to Chen Rui who suddenly appeared. Many of them also cast long-range attacks such as water arrows, venom, and energy bombs. A translucent blue shield appeared around Chen Rui’s body, covering his whole body. The general magic shield couldn’t be moved after being activated, let alone attack at the same time unless the magic shield was canceled. Nevertheless, the protective shield skill of the Super System did not have this restriction at all, so he could move and attack freely.
While dodging, Chen Rui activated [Aura Blade] and killed the approaching sea beasts. His entire person was like a rotating sharp fan. The sea beasts along the way were quickly eliminated. Considering the number of sea beasts, Chen Rui’s massacre was just a drop in the bucket, but he had successfully attracted the attention of most sea beasts. Many of the big sea beast came roaring.
Even if Chen Rui was fighting guerrillas all the way, the protective shield on his body was still under tremendous pressure. The translucent round shield shook violently, and cracks gradually increased.
If it was a computer game, Chen Rui should be playing a tank role that resisted monsters and attracted hatred. It was just that he felt more like the big boss of the game now, being besieged repeatedly by countless players who wanted to farm the loots. No matter how much blood and how thick was the skin of this boss, he might be exhausted by huge-crowd strategy. What’s more, these sea beasts were not ordinary ants. Putting aside the difference in strength, the most terrifying thing was the same characteristic: successive attacks and fearlessness.
This kind of frantic battle was even greater than what he experienced in the battlefields previously. There were endless enemies, and the ears were full of roaring and shouting. What he saw and smelled was intense blood. He couldn’t figure out whether it was his own or the enemy’s.
Chen Rui felt that his power was consumed very quickly. He teleported and appeared high in the sky 1 second before the protective shield collapsed. Before he could catch his breath, dozens of black figures in the air hissed and rushed forward at an astonishing speed. This black figure was about 3 meters long. It looked like a kind of fish on the outside, but it had wings-like fins on both sides. Judging from the sharp teeth dripping with saliva, it didn’t look like a vegetarian.
This world is too unscientific. Let alone the fishes are howling like beasts; they are even flying in the air to bite!
Chen Rui launched the [Aura Blade] right in front of a flying fish. To his surprise, this sword qi did not cut the flying fish into halves as he expected, but it left a shocking crack on the forehead. This flying fish wailed and fell into the sea. Most of the sea beasts below were unable to fly, but they stacked up one by one like a huge tower that was constantly moving and increasing in height. While Chen Rui was struggling to cope with the flying fishes in the air, they quickly approached.
The sea beasts in the front were mostly attracted to Chen Rui. The Devil’s Snare Ship controlled the speed to pull the distance from the beast tide at the back. At the same time, they used the cannons to clear the obstacles in front. The dark elementals launched a large piece of [Dark Sky]. Together with the water wall created by the water elementals, they effectively delayed the approach of sea beast tide at the back.
In contrast, the most threatening thing was the flying fishes in the air. There were hundreds of flying fishes hovering above the Devil’s Snare Ship like black clouds. The Devil’s Snare Ship suffered a fierce attack. The top of 1 of the 3 masts broke open, and the balance sail was also torn. Several nagas and elementals were killed in the mouth of the flying fishes.
Strena covered Adeline to hide in the ship cabin as she loudly commanded the nagas to coordinate defenses to protect the cannoneers. She successively cut down several approaching flying fishes. With a bounce of her snake tail, she rose into the sky.
The flying fishes screamed and swooped toward Strena. Strena was the young tribe chief of the naga tribe and the commander of the White Tower Front Camp. Strena had competed with the joint forces of the harpies and sirens for the resources of phantom coral for many years. Hence, she was familiar to the opponents flying in the air. Her snake body in the air was as flexible as it was in the water. When she was cruising, the 6 scimitar lights flowed swiftly. The flying fishes that swoop toward her were equivalent to automatically sending their lives to the scythe of the god of death. They were either dead or injured as they plummeted into the sea like hailstones.
At this moment, there was a warning omen surged in Strena’s mind. She instantly turned back while crossing 2 scimitars, blocking the impact of a huge black figure behind her.
“Boom!” Strena’s body was knocked off as she was hit by a strong force. She was blown back for a few circles before she could regain her composure. It turned out to be a huge mutated flying fish that was 5 meters long. Its body flashed with dark silver light as it emanated wisps of icy air. It should be the king of flying fish.
Strena showed a vigilant expression. The double scimitars had actually become a little bent under this impact, but she still rushed to Flying Fish King without fear.
The snake figure flickered. The sounds of sharp wind tearing through the air and the muffled crashing sounded continuously. After a while, Strena’s figure flew out again.
This time, her face became paler. The armor on her body was mostly shattered, her mouth was bleeding, and the scimitars held by her 6 arms were twisted. There were countless intertwined slash marks on the body of King Flying Fish, some of which were deep to the bones. The broken scales were dropping like rain, but it did not suffer a fatal blow.
The Flying Fish King was very hard. He had the power of the early stage of the Demon Overlord which was inferior to Strena. Under normal conditions, Strena should be able to kill or repel him, but she was seriously injured in the battle with Queen Naga yesterday, and the poison of the devil fruit she took was not completely resolved. Even if she took the potion and Jade Pearl gifted by Chen Rui, she was still in a relatively weak state. In addition, the previous battles with the demonic sharks exhausted some of her stamina. Her combat power today was only 60 to 70% of the usual. It was very difficult to win when her weapons were broken.
As the situation is urgent now, every second of delay will further increase the danger. A quick fight is the only way to escape danger. Strena took a deep breath, and her green eyes turned golden. Her entire body began to emit a scorching golden light with a powerful sharp qi spreading rapidly around. The Flying Fish King realized the oncoming danger. A layer of blue cold light quickly wrapped around. The golden light couldn’t break through the golden light defense for a while.
In the 6 hands of the female body in the golden light, crimson flames were burning on the twisted scimitars. With a shout, nearly 100 golden figures appeared instantly, waving 6 flames. The figures simultaneously activated the naga tribe’s most powerful combat skill, [6 Wield].
The ordinary flying fishes within the golden light range were instantly burned to ashes. Countless waving flames intertwined into a giant net, trapping the Flying Fish King in it. The Flying Fish King hissed in terror as its blue light became thinner and dimmer. After a while, the giant net and the Flying Fish King past through each other. The golden light and flames disappeared. Besides the Flying Fish King in the air, there was no flying fish alive.
The sturdy and huge body of the Flying Fish King showed countless red net marks. With a “click“, its whole body finally split into countless pieces and fell into the sea.
Only the handles of the 6 scimitars were left in Strena’s hands. Judging from the fractures, they seemed to have been melted by the high temperature. There was no trace of blood on her face. Her entire person looked very battered. She seemed to have exhausted a huge vitality. In fact, the blow that contained the territory just now had indeed exhausted all of her power. All her wounds burst apart. Although she killed Flying Fish King with great risk, she had basically lost her combat power.
Strena, who was barely floating in the air, was about to go down when she happened to see the battle in the distance- The exaggerated “beast tower” just exceeded the altitude of Chen Rui’s position. It firmly wrapped Chen Rui like a huge sphere.
Strena was taken aback. Not to mention that “Aguile” is just the peak stage of the Demon Emperor, even if I am surrounded by that kind of terrifying battle group, it would be difficult for me to survive.
At this moment, a dazzling light appeared in the sea beast sphere wrapped in layers. The star-like light spread rapidly, and the entire “sphere” was instantly torn apart.
In the center of the light was a figure wearing a dazzling armor. The light suddenly became brighter. Then, the entire sea surface in front of the field of vision seemed to be separated by a huge force. The terrifying power created a huge vortex out of the sea. It wrapped countless sea beasts and soared into the sky to 100 meters high. If it weren’t for the special device of the Devil’s Snare Ship, it would have been overturned by this terrifying aftermath.
In the vortex, the brilliance was flourishing. In an instant, Strena had the illusion of a star explosion. In the terrifying shock and explosion, the sea beasts near the vortex were all shattered to pieces. A big hole was abruptly torn in the huge sea beast tide. It could not be closed for a while.
Strena watched this scene in horror. She finally understood the reason why her sister said that before. With this kind of terrifying strength, even if I am in the peak stage, I concede defeat!
“Stop firing! Go ahead at full speed! Hurry!” Chen Rui’s shout came from a distance. Although the move, [Star Explosion], successfully defeated the sea beast tide, the anxiety in his heart became stronger and stronger.
Many of these sea beasts had a hint of special breath. This kind of power was familiar to Chen Rui who owned the Super System- This is… the breath of faith!
TL: Another Demi-God? Or Pseudo-God? They almost used all their power when facing against the normal enemies, if the true boss appears…
