As Chen Rui took a deep breath, his power rose.
Since his initial faith crystals were used to cancel Adeline’s possession, the remaining number was no longer enough to activate the [Royal Star Transformation]. The resentful souls outside were unable to beat the Dark Iron Mystic Ghosts as they were suppressed by the kingdom power. The situation was critical.
With the current strength, it was impossible to finish off Glorios forcefully even if it was just a clone-activated pseudo kingdom power.
If he wanted to win, the only hope was to destroy the life box, so he had to take a risk.
A mask suddenly appeared on Chen Rui’s face. In an instant, the smoke nearby the Death God was all devoured like a long whale sucking water. However, the kingdom was completely different from a territory. For the kingdom that shrouded the entire Land of Hatred, the God-Eating Mask could only absorb the spirit power of this small area; it couldn’t shake the spirit power of the entire kingdom. Just like the [Galaxy Territory] skill could strengthen oneself and the allies, but it couldn’t weaken the entire kingdom.
Nevertheless, this moment was enough to buy Hegel time.
The Dark Elemental King didn’t waste Chen Rui’s efforts. He turned into a puff of black smoke and rushed out quickly. The direction of the attack was actually the army of the Dark Iron Mystic Ghosts.
With the departure of the Dark Elemental King, the initial protective power disappeared. The rest of the people suddenly felt that the pressure doubled.
Chen Rui activated the aura of Mystic Jade Armor coupled with the buff effect of [Galaxy Territory]. Strena obviously benefited the most as she had broken free from the suppressive power of the kingdom. In the clear clanging sound, the green eyes of the female naga warrior suddenly turned golden. The 6 scimitars all burned in red flames. The criss-crossed sharp qi turned into a flame greatsword which slashed toward Glorios.
The ‘Death God smoke’ along the way was unable to gather for a while as they were forcibly slashed apart by the intensive fire attribute sharp qi.
Facing the flame greatsword, Glorios stretched out a white finger and tapped on it. The greatsword instantly disintegrated into sharp qi which was then decomposed and weakened by countless transparent ‘hands’. It disappeared in the blink of an eye.
Strena’s full blow at the peak stage of the Demon Overlord was actually easily disintegrated by a finger. The level of strength between Demon Overlord and kingdomized was very different. If it weren’t for the special origin power of the Dark Elemental King, perhaps she would have lost.
At this time, the Dark Elemental King had quickly rushed into the army of the Dark Iron Mystic Ghosts. Judging from the trail of the black smoke, it should be the huge-sized leader of the Dark Iron Mystic Ghosts group- This leader has not taken any action and is just commanding the Dark Iron Mystic Ghosts to fight, unlike ordinary massacre machines. Judging from Glorios’ actions, the life box must be hidden in the Dark Iron Mystic Ghost!
Lich King screamed with slight panic. He ignored the counterattack of Strena and waved the bone staff. Countless Death God smoke quickly chased the black smoke. A large number of the Dark Iron Mystic Ghosts also appeared in front of the giant leader to surround the Dark Elemental King.
Glorios’ reaction reaffirmed the determination of the Dark Elemental King. He actually adopted a desperate approach by completely ignoring the obstacles and attacks along the way. He had suffered many attacks in a short time before he finally approached the leader of the Dark Iron Mystic Ghosts.
The black smoke suddenly stopped. Hegel’s exclamation came out, “Wait! This is just a trace of the soul breath that has been deliberately buffed! I was fooled!”
With that said, he was overwhelmed by the torrent of the Dark Iron Mystic Ghosts from all directions. Lich King let out a triumphant laugh, “Smartass! Do you think you can easily find my life box?”
“Glorios! Watch out!” Chen Rui’s figure appeared in front of Glorios. Several huge light balls flew over.
“It’s just ants!” Fighting was not a card game. Glorios naturally didn’t take Chen Rui seriously as he was only at the peak stage of the Demon Emperor.
The hatred of the split soul caused Lich King to hate this ant deeply. As soon as his mind moved, countless twisted and cut openings appeared in the space. The [Aurora Shots] were split and disintegrated in the blink of an eye. The terrifying aftershock spread to Chen Rui, who was rushing over, splitting his whole body into pieces- To be more precise, he split into countless demonic flies.
Almost at the same time, something exploded in front of Glorios.
This was a swollen package which seemed to contain a lot of bottles and cans. In the sound of the explosion, the juice of countless crumbs spurted out swiftly.
This explosive force was quite amazing. Even a Demon Overlord powerhouse couldn’t take it lightly. However, this level of damage was nothing at all for a powerhouse with a kingdomized strength level. It was not even comparable to Strena’s attack just now. Nevertheless, what was amazing was that this explosion made Glorios let out a scream just like when his soul was split; the pain was definitely not feigned.
The core of the explosion was Zola’s imitation of Zeray, burst bombs. However, the burst bomb was just a combustion aid in this attack. The most important thing was the bursting black juice.
Grand master level black potions – Resurrection potion.
For an undead, the grand master-level resurrection potion was more terrifying than any poison. It was not the first time Chen Rui used this kind of ‘sulfur acid’. When he was looking for Paglio’s treasure back then in the Silent Night Wetland, he had tested the terrifying power of the resurrection potion on the corpse necromancer, Guradam.
Given the strength of Glorios, there was more than 1 resurrection potion this time. Speaking of it, this was the most extravagant bomb of the Demon Realm. If those potion masters knew that the Demon Realm’s discontinued high grade black potions were wasted in such a way, they would definitely be completely devastated.
Glorios also never thought that this ant-like enemy had such a big killing move. The Death God who was within the explosion range made a sizzling sound and disappeared. Glorios’ body was penetrated with countless ‘bullet holes’. The golden magic robe which condensed the power of the undead was in tatters.
The damage on the surface was fine. The soul attached to the clone was the one suffering from heavy damage.
Glorios suffered severe injuries in Chen Rui’s hands twice in a row. He was so sick of him. He waved the bone staff while enduring the pain. Countless transparent ‘hands’ grabbed Chen Rui. At this time, [Demonic Flies Transformation] had reached the time limit and couldn’t be used again in a while. Once he was caught, his body would truly be ripped apart.
At the critical moment, the sound of [Sonic Boom] sounded. Chen Rui’s fast-flying figure brought out countless trajectories like water waves. He ‘slid’ away from those approaching ‘hands’ like a mud loach that slipped away.
[Sonic Boom]+[Star Diversion]!
Glorios’s trump card failed again. He was frightened and furious. Just as he was about to chase, he suddenly sensed something. When he turned his head, he saw an unnoticeable wisp of smoke flying close to a place behind him.
The blue flames in Lich King’s eyes flashed with unconcealable horror. The light smoke’s target was actually the Death God statue holding the scythe in the center of the ‘Fate Showdown’ card table.
“You’re the smartass! Don’t underestimate the king of dark element!”
The voice was Hegel, who should have been swarmed in the Dark Iron Mystic Ghosts, “The one in front is just the origin power that I separated! You can’t lie to me. This is the real hiding place of your life box!”
Chen Rui had already felt Hegel’s real movement from the [Analytical Eyes]. In order to cooperate with this tactic, he used the super sulfuric acid bomb of the resurrection potions which successfully attracted Glorios’ attention.
“No!” Lich King yelled out loud. This time it was definitely a real panic. He even gave up chasing and killing the most hated enemy, Chen Rui. He exhausted his kingdom power and rushed toward Hegel frantically.
It was too late. Hegel who turned into the light smoke had already penetrated the Death God statue.
A crack appeared on the sturdy statues after just what seemed like a soft sweep of the light smoke. Then, the crack spread rapidly. In the blink of an eye, the long-handled scythe fell. The shattered pieces scattered on the ground and turned into powder.
After Hegel smashed the Death God’s statue, he suddenly revealed a surprised expression. By right Glorios should have disappeared after the life box was smashed. However, the tremendous kingdom power still came surging unabatedly, accompanied by Lich King’s rage.
This was much beyond Hegel’s expectation. The attack just now exhausted all his power. He hurriedly gathered his power to defend. When he was knocked away by the terrifying kingdom power, a large amount of black gas leaked from his body. The red lights in his eyes was dim. He obviously took huge damage from it.
After the Lich King hit Hegel severely, he didn’t intend to stop at all. He continued to attack with all his strength. He was about to break the Dark Elemental King to pieces once and for all.
At this moment, the Lich King’s skeleton body shook and all his movements stopped. The kingdom’s power was frozen in the air. As he slowly turned his head, he saw Chen Rui had appeared in front of the pile of shattered powder at some point of time. He was grabbing something in his hand.
That long-handled scythe.
“Who said that the life box must be a box?” Chen Rui said lightly, “Star iron, emery sand, blue pattern mithril, red silk crystal… This scythe is not only extremely sturdy, but it also can interfere and isolate sensing power. It is indeed the best container for soul essence.”
“Put it down!” Glorios’ voice was full of fierceness. Chen Rui could hear the obvious sternness.
Chen Rui smiled calmly, “No doubt, this scythe is your real life box. This kind of mixed metal is made with the secret technique which has a high degree of solidity. It cannot be destroyed by ordinary means. No wonder it is still intact after Hegel’s strike, but you should have been taken aback. That’s why you were so anxious to kill Hegel to cover up.”
“Destroy it!” Hegel yelled and pounced at Glorios. “As long as it is destroyed, not only Glorios, but the Dark Iron Mystic Ghosts will also stop acting!”
“You can’t destroy this scythe!” Glorios’ voice was slightly shaky. Although he knew that the metal was extremely sturdy and contained the soul power of a kingdom-level powerhouse, he had an ominous premonition in his heart for some reason.
Facts had proved that Lich King’s hunch was accurate. When the other party used some means, the mixed metal made using the secret technique was actually quickly weakened. A hole cracked, and the traces of soul essence hidden inside had felt an unprecedented crisis.
It was as if… a little defenseless beauty encountered a strange uncle who was salivating.
