That cluster of cold flames flew like lightning, and the ‘spider silk’ surrounding Chen Rui seemed to be cut by some sharp weapon. His figure flashed and avoided the flames at the critical moment.
A string of rune signs popped out of Ukleus’ mouth and turned into black balls. The balls burst open together and turned into countless shattered blades. It was the powerful magic of the water element, [Freezing Ice Explosion].
Ordinary [Freezing Ice Explosion] just had 1 ice ball, while Ukleus had hundreds of ice balls. It also incorporated powerful dark element power which doubled the power. Under this all-round blasting, there was almost no space to dodge. As long as the pieces of sharp broken blades hit his body, even a small area would result in hundreds of holes.
Ukleus’ ‘mutated’ [Freezing Ice Explosion] was far more powerful than that. The broken blades did not dissipate, but they rolled back to form groups of terrifying storms, sweeping the enemy in the space over and over again.
Black dragons were dragons that were magic-immuned, so they were almost completely immune to magic. However, after transforming into dracolich, the original melee-based fighting method had become a magic attack. Especially after more than 9,000 years of accumulation and fighting, Ukleus had completely adapted to this ‘new’ fighting method. The Dragon Inscription magic, which was dominated by the 3 elements of darkness, wind and water, was powerful and strange, making it hard to guard against.
This move [Death Ice Storm] was 1 of the strongest compound offensive magics. Although the law power was temporarily negated, Ukleus had paid the price of burning his life and his power. Once he failed to take down the opponent when his power was exhausted, the consequence was unimaginable. In particular, Raizen was waiting for an opportunity to make a move next to him, so he didn’t dare to neglect. Therefore, he launched a powerful ultimate move with the intention to end the fight quickly.
Although the fight with Raizen was short-lived, it could be judged from the terrifying punching power that he was definitely a tough enemy, but if Ukleus wanted to escape, Raizen couldn’t stop him. Of course, the prerequisite was to finish off ‘Arthur’ and successfully devour his life.
The powerful tornado almost obscured everyone’s sight. The force of this ultimate move was extremely powerful. If Raizen didn’t use the kingdom to protect the surrounding area, once the residual power leaked, perhaps most of the arena’s audience would be casualties.
The momentum of [Death Ice Storm] was longer than expected, and it seemed to be getting more and more berserk. Paglio and others had lost the calmness on their faces. They maintained the protection power just in case while closely watching the storm. Raizen stood quietly on the sidelines as his clothes fluttered slightly. His sharp eyes saw through the crazy hurricane, faintly seeing the phantasms of the stars while still maintaining the rhythm of the cycle. Raizen’s mouth twitched as he snorted.
At this moment, the space flooded by the hurricane suddenly shook. A red light suddenly appeared in the blurred vision. The red light became brighter and brighter. It seemed to be a curvy huge beast with a vicious and berserk breath. Wherever it went, the tornado seemed to be torn and split apart by some kind of great strength.
The huge beast plunged straight down, and the twisted energy enveloped Ukleus below. The shaking frequency of the entire space instantly increased. With a ‘bang’, the red light and the [Death Ice Storm] disappeared at the same time, and the vision finally became clear.
The figure with dots of starlights was still standing in the air while the dracolich below appeared on the opposite side. The mechanized layer on his body was full of cracks. The depth of the cracks was much greater than before, and the rate of self-healing was much slower, but it was still unable to break the bone that was wrapped in it.
The self-healing super alchemy body, the painless undead magic creature, the strength of the peak stage kingdom… This was a formidable opponent far superior to Ze Hongen.
In order to really damage the essence of dracolich, the first step must be to destroy the mechanized body with self-healing ability.
“A very powerful attack. It should be your killing move, right? If I were the original dragon body, I would have been injured.” As the dracolich spoke, he quickly charged dark element power, “Unfortunately, with my current body, I can’t feel the pain at all. You can’t even break this layer of defense made by mechanical skills, unless you have dozens of times more destructive power…”
Before the dracolich’s psychological tactic words were finished, he heard the indifferent voice of the other party, “As you wish then.”
Before Ukleus could respond, a warning sign of extreme danger suddenly appeared in his mind. He subconsciously converted the element offensive power into a defensive power. Huge black shields appeared in layers around him.
Almost at the same time, the dracolich’s vision was filled with a blood-red sea which was the snake-shaped huge beast with terrifying momentum just now. There were actually nearly a hundred of them!
The terrifying breath of [Scorching Dragon Roar] made Ukleus’ soul tremble. If the Demon Realm had the concept of a crow’s mouth (meaning jinx), then the dracolich had now become an out-and-out ‘crow’ lich – That terrifying killing move really does have dozens of times more… No, this is not a simple single multiplication, but a double plus overlapping power!
The blood-red sea roared and swept toward Ukleus, instantly engulfing Ukleus’ huge body. The blood-red sea squirmed rampantly as if to tear the dracolich apart completely.
Raizen’s hair and robes fluttered wildly. As he felt the incomparably powerful shock waves, 2 very different rays of coldness and scorching light flickered in his eyes.
It’s the same trick. I used to resist it easily at the Warlock Fortress, but at that time, ‘Aguile’ was only at the peak stage of the Demon Overlord. What about now? Can I resist it now?
The red light finally faded away, and the violent shaking of the space also ceased. Ukleus, who was frozen in the air in a stiff motion, shuddered slightly. Countless cracks appeared on the surface of his body. The cracks deepened rapidly and spread. With a ‘bang’, the huge body including the bones covered by armor was torn apart. They scattered into countless fragments before dropping to the ground.
The breath of the undead force field suddenly decreased. Chen Rui, who was suspended in the air, was not excited to defeat the opponent, but he showed a dignified expression. He changed his hand into knife shape and dived down.
Countless golden symbols lit up in the force field. Upon closer inspection, there were countless trajectories of sword qi dancing with incomparable sharpness. Those symbols seemed to wrap intangible objects which were eventually split apart.
“Damn bastard!” Ukleus’ furious voice sounded, and the kingdom power of the force field instantly became extremely rich which was completely different from the ‘weakness’ just now.
“Fake death for a sneak attack? Such little tricks are useless.” Chen Rui sneered coldly, “But you’re going to really die soon.”
A large number of black mists appeared in the kingdom. The cold and strange breath was unprecedentedly strong. The lights of the entire arena were dimmed due to the fluctuation. Even Raizen couldn’t see what was going on inside.
Ukleus’ voice had recovered from his rage, “I admit that you are a formidable opponent. No matter in terms of strength, judgment or means, the previous terrifying blow actually completely destroyed my alchemy body, even hurting my soul! Although I don’t know how you did it, it can only end here… My [Black Death Kingdom] will be the end of your life!”
The 2 moons in the sky had turned a strange green color as Chen Rui felt waves of strange fluctuations approaching. Judging from the warning from the Super System, it seemed to be carrying some kind of highly erosive disease. The kingdom had also become an endless graveyard.
The grave was slowly opened up, and one after another creature crawled out. The atmosphere was eerie and horrifying. If it was a coward, he would have peed in his pants.
Skeletons, corpse necromancers, dark knights, undead giant dragons… What appeared in front of Chen Rui’s eyes was a sea of undead creatures. Neither the quality nor quantity could be compared by Guradam’s undead army. Judging from the strong resentment, these should be directly converted from living souls. One could imagine how many lives Ukleus slaughtered for the formation of the kingdom after he became undead.
The undead rushed toward Chen Rui. Chen Rui swung the [Aura Blade] continuously as the [Aura Blade] had the effect of directly killing the soul. Coupled with the quasi-artifact ‘Thunderous Sound’ that could cause 200% damage to the undead, the approaching undead turned into nothingness. However, the annihilated undead reintegrated and resurrected soon after, still rushing forward one after another.
These undead were by no means ordinary undead creatures. They all had infinite kingdom power. Chen Rui was gradually feeling tired. He teleported to the air, but the surrounding space was also raised. No matter how high he flew, he couldn’t rush out of this kingdom’s space. It was more inconvenient in the air than on the ground. Not only were the undead giant dragons flying toward him, but the corpse necromancers on the ground also started to release long-range magic attacks. He would be shot if he was slightly careless.
Chen Rui got back the ground with a sword in his hand – the Sword of Fallen Angel. However, the [Soul Searing] feature had no significant effect on these endless undead. He could only annihilate a small amount of them, so he changed another sword – Northsea.
He wielded the purple sword light, and countless meteor-like rays of light launched out, spreading out in a fan shape. The undead along the way turned into particles and disappeared. The giant sword flew forward with terrifying speed and power, clearing the massive sea of undead.
“What a strange water element… and light element power. Unfortunately, it’s just the power of the sword itself. This little attack can’t hurt my essence at all.”
Under the action of the kingdom power, wisps of black smoke appeared in the empty area, and the undead reintegrated again.
“You’re almost exhausted.” Ukleus laughed secretly, “I will not kill you. After devouring your life, I will convert you into an undead in the kingdom. You will never be able to get rid of my control and slavery.”
Chen Rui’s frowning brows gradually eased, “Don’t be complacent, I have found a way to defeat you.”
“Oh? Could it be that you made hundreds of bottles of resurrection potion and poured them on me? Unfortunately, you can’t even find my real body!”
“There’s no need to waste so much…” Chen Rui showed a strange smile, “But… I’ll grant you the bizarre wish of being splashed with sulfuric acid.”
