Boom! Boom! Boom……
7 huge crimson light balls formed a line, and huge explosions occurred. The 3 ferocious figures flew out of the huge air wave and fell to the ground far away.
1 of them also hit the top of a nearby bone tower, but the bone tower just moved slightly, dropped some debris, and did not suffer any real damage. It seemed that these bone towers were extremely sturdy, and ordinary attack methods could hardly destroy them.
This blow of [7-star Explosion] was quite powerful in the state of [Red Pole Star Transformation]. There were a lot of cracks on the body of the 3 monsters. The wounds were a little deep to the bone, but they were not fatal enough. Furthermore, their ferocious breath did not weaken in the slightest. The more terrifying thing was that those wounds quickly healed again on their own.
The self-healing speed of these Abyss soul variants was even faster than Chen Rui’s skill, which was obviously the result of the support of the strange blood sacrifice. It was also a way to overdraw potential that was equivalent to drinking poison to quench thirst. Anyway, these soul variants had only a 3 hour time limit. Once the time was over, even if he didn’t fight, they would be annihilated in all likelihood.
The premise was that he could hold on for 3 hours.
Chen Rui frowned. These 3 soul variants with Demi-God level strength are just like the ordinary Abyss creatures that fight with instinct. They don’t have kingdom power or higher wisdom, but the main altar’s suppressing power is greater than expected, especially the power of [Pole Star Kingdom] is limited by the power like might. In an ordinary combat environment, the power of [7-star Explosion] is much more than that.
Judging from the damage of [7-star Explosion], whether it is [Pole Star Storm] or [Scorching Dragon Roar], it is difficult to completely kill these Abyss soul variants, and it is easy to involve to my companions. Maybe only that move [True Red Extinction] can work, but [True Red Extinction] is a single attack skill and cannot eliminate 3 enemies at once.
Meanwhile, the transformation time of the [Red Pole Star Transformation] will definitely be shortened when fighting here, so I must seize the opportunity to get the greatest impact.
When Chen Rui was in a fierce battle with the 3 soul variants, Zola’s side was not easy as well. Thomas realized Zola’s intention to break the main altar’s defense, and he would let her succeed. During the incantation, the altar glowed wisps of bloody lights that turned into countless pairs of ‘hands’ and rushed toward Zola.
The scene of countless bloody hands coming from all directions made Dodo’s teeth chatter. Zola revealed a solemn expression when she noticed the huge pressure from bloody hands. The Secret Shadow had appeared in her hand, showing a faint brilliance. An intangible power surged out, blocking the bloody hands.
The bloody hands burst into flames and turned into bloody fires that spread out, covering Zola in a ring of fire. Zola sensed that the element power was continuously decomposed and dispelled by the same special law. It seemed to be as powerful as her power, but in fact, the fire ring was shrinking inward gradually.
The fairy dragon frowned. She did not dodge or leave because she had just found a key node of the earth element origin, which was the key to breaking the altar defense. If she gave up at this time, the node would be hidden or transferred if the other party was prepared, then it would be difficult to find it again.
Therefore, Zola did not move and continued to stay in place. While resisting the fire ring, she continued to crack the protection. The power of the main altar was obviously buffed through the bone towers. As long as Paglio destroyed the bone towers, the power of the fire ring would naturally be greatly weakened. Besides, she could also break through that tricky wall of earth element origin power quickly.
Paglio knew that time was running out. When Chen Rui was entangled with the 3 terrifying abyss monsters, he had already arrived in the densest group of bone towers.
The bone towers were filled with bloody mist. The sense of depression was stronger than the outside. The poison dragon’s fists were rippling with green rays of light, hitting the nearest bone tower and making a muffled sound, but that tower was unmoved unexpectedly.
Paglio didn’t expect that he could not shake a small bone tower with a punch with 80% of his strength. There were dozens of bone towers here. If he didn’t try to destroy it, then Chen Rui and Zola’s efforts would be wasted, and there might be great danger.
The poison dragon’s gaze became extremely serious as the snake eyes and the dragon’s body faintly appeared. The kingdom power all over his body was surging, and he quickly condensed it in his fists, instantly condensing great poison and power.
In the blink of an eye, an astonishing green lightning struck the bone tower. The bone tower finally shook, and the bloody mist was quickly shaken away before it soon returned to calm.
There were several obvious cracks on the tower flashing with the green brilliance. It seemed to be rapidly destructing and corroding before finally extinguishing – The poison no doubt has a quite targeted effect on the bone tower, but unfortunately, this level of power can only cause surface level damage. It is far from destroying the entire bone tower.
Paglio gasped slightly. It was already his full blow just now, but it only reached this level!
To destroy these bone towers, his current strength at the intermediate stage of Kingdom level was far from enough. Then, there was only 1 way left.
That bloodline artifact from ‘someone’ in the Dragon Valley, Thunder Flail!
The poison dragon had always refused to admit his identity as the ‘son of Cairrealo’, and he even rejected the man as well as the weapon in his mind. Nonetheless, he knew in his mind that Cairrealo was indeed his father even though he saw no parents when he was born; only eggshells.
Although Thunder Flail was only a relatively elementary artifact, it was a pure attack-type ‘weapon’. It could greatly increase the poison power and enchant his attack with thunder power, which was quite powerful. However, the poison dragon barely picked it up after burning his blood last time. Later, after the flail was obtained, Paglio had made a lot of attempts, but he could not fully integrate the power of the flail’s inheritance. Even if he could barely activate some of the power, he also lost a lot of blood and suffered from a powerful recoil.
Dragon Emperor Pagris once said that only by reaching Demi-God or fully integrating the power of bloodline inheritance could the power of Thunder Flail truly be exerted, but now Paglio had no other choice. Using Thunder Flail was the only way he could destroy the bone towers.
The roar of beasts in the distance and the shouts of his companions echoed in his ears. The poison dragon did not hesitate anymore. There was a black flail in his hand. Bang! Green blood burst out before he even attacked, which was the price he had to pay for activating the flail.
Paglio didn’t even look at the blood as he slowly raised the Thunder Flail. At the same time, he turned on the state of the soul weapon. In the air, black lightning began to shine.
In front of the altar.
The blood-colored fire ring had shrunk by a third. The Element Goddess Crown had appeared on Zola’s head, and the Secret Shadow had also become a long staff in the form of a soul weapon. It could be seen that the pressure was massive. The fairy dragon’s forehead was already sweating, but her gaze flashed a strange brilliance because she had already found and hit the third node. If she found all 5, she could fully grasp the law structure of the earth element origin.
By then, as long as she destructed bone tower and weakened that steady stream of power, she could infuse the wind element origin law power into these nodes, trigger a chain reaction, crush the pillar on which the earth origin fragment was placed, and completely destroy the entire altar’s defense power.
Thomas didn’t know that Zola had gradually figured out the context of his biggest trump card. He was charging his power, thinking that he was about to completely destroy this Demi-God with the power of the altar. At this moment, the ground suddenly shook. Thomas clearly sensed that the power of the altar seemed to have weakened a bit, and he immediately reacted – The bone tower has been destroyed! And it’s more than one!
Thomas’s surprise was not trivial. The role of the bone towers was to absorb the power of altar or blood sacrifice from all over the plane, which could be continuously transmitted to this main altar, becoming the greatest source of power to lord projection and might descend. The bone towers and corpse passages here took a lot of effort, and he hadn’t had time to complete the structure, so the entire main altar couldn’t unleash the biggest might, and some special descents couldn’t be completed. However, now they had been destroyed by others!
I must stop the bone towers from being destroyed!
Thomas chanted without hesitation, and the 3 Abyss soul variants that was entangled by Chen Rui immediately abandoned Chen Rui and rushed toward the bone tower.
Chen Rui was still planning to attract the opponent’s offensive using [True Red Extinction] to deal with 2 or 3 of them at once, but now the opponents suddenly changed their target. He hurriedly chased after them for fear something bad happened.
Paglio in the bone tower group was panting heavily, and he could hardly hold the Thunder Flail in his hand. The power of Thunder Flail was no doubt extraordinary, and the heavy blow that combined the highly poisonous and lightning attribute had a strong restraint on the bone towers. He had destroyed 5 bone towers in a row, and the surrounding bloody mist had become much thinner. However, controlling the Thunder Flail was at the cost of burning blood. Now the power of the poison dragon had been exhausted quite severely. He already felt dizzy and enfeeble.
At this moment, the poison dragon instinctively felt a sense of crisis. A terrifying figure appeared in the mist ahead, rushing in his direction – That kind of Abyss monster!
When Chen Rui was fighting with the 3 monsters before, Paglio sensed the terrifying breath they exuded, which would definitely kill him in seconds. Unexpectedly, these monsters were rushing toward him. Although there were still dozens of meters, this kind of distance could be shortened in just a blink of an eye. Life and death were just at this moment!
It was too late to escape. Paglio gritted his teeth and gripped the flail again with all his strength.
At this time, the poison dragon felt that the monsters’ movements suddenly slowed down. Not only the monster, but also his own movements and reactions. The next second, a red light struck the monster. The red light didn’t seem to be affected by the ‘slow down’ effect, and the space near the monsters was cut in half by the red light.
The feeling of ‘slowness’ disappeared, and the space returned to normal, as if it was just an illusion. The monsters moved due to inertia before their bodies suddenly turned into particles and dissipated.
The source of the red light was a 4-winged figure which faintly revealed a bright crimson fluorescent light in the mist. The poison dragon smiled. This guy finally arrived in time before I was wiped out.
However, the poison dragon’s smile immediately solidified on his face because the figure was pushed forward a few steps being attacked by the 2 figures behind him. The shape of the wings behind him seemed to be scattered into pieces, but the figure quickly stood firm. With a loud shout, he held off the 2 ferocious figures who were rushing toward the poison dragon.
In an instant, the poison dragon’s vision was a little blurry. Some vague fragments in his mind began to become clear again.
“As soon as I was born, I didn’t see anything except eggshells. In these years, I don’t have any relatives, but there are many enemies.”
“What about friends?”
“Dragons don’t need friends, especially poison dragons. Have you ever seen gods who have friends? They only need admiration and fear, not the unnecessary caring and understanding.”
“Perhaps it was like this before… Then, what about now?”
Paglio looked down at the black flail in his hand.
Maybe he hated those 2 people who should be called parents. They left him alone in the Demon Realm from birth, but at this moment, he suddenly thanked those 2 people very much. Without them, he wouldn’t exist in this world, he wouldn’t know some people, and he wouldn’t have some things – Precious things, very precious.
I’m no longer alone; I’m no longer fighting just for instinct or survival.
I’m no longer just thinking for myself.
The poison dragon laughed: Paglio, disregard everything and fight with every ounce of your power! Let the human see it, let the madwoman see it, let Little Betty far away also see it, and let the guys from farther see it, the true heroic moment of Master Poison Dragon!
It’s nice to be… with you guys.
The breathing became less heavy as the blood in his whole body burned. He clenched the flail tightly in his hand without the slightest rejection or hesitation. At this moment, the black flail seemed to be much lighter. When it was swayed, it shone with unprecedented lightning.
“Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom…”
The continuous explosion sounded, and one after another bone towers were smashed in the midst of the black thunder.
Chen Rui’s spirits were greatly lifted. The battle near the bone towers gave him a further understanding of the sturdiness of these strange buildings. He never thought that Paglio actually could easily destroy the bone towers!
In fact, the 2 soul variants with the peak stage of the Demi-God power just now caused Chen Rui to suffer a lot of damage. The star wings behind him were shattered. However, the destruction of the bone towers elevated Chen Rui’s fighting spirit. The tidal wave of Star Power surged out, firmly entangling the 2 enemies.
Thomas couldn’t help being shocked when he sensed that the bone towers were destroyed one after another, and the power of the main altar plummeted.
Zola, who had been suppressed by the blood-colored fire ring, opened her slightly squinted purple eyes. The Element Goddess Crown above her head vibrated as her pupils flashed bright light. 5 holes suddenly appeared in the indestructible protective wall. An arm-thick green channel led all the way to the origin fragment at the top of the main altar pillar.
“Dodo! Go now! Get the origin fragment of that pillar!”
