Book 11, Necropolis of the Gods – Chapter 18: The Fate-Determining Strike
“Most powerful attack?” Desri’s eyes lit up, and he mentally said, “How confident are you?”
“Right now, 70% confident.” Linley said. “The prerequisite being I have to get near him.”
Linley stared at the distant Flame Tyrant. The Flame Tyrant, upon entering his battle-form, had shrunk dramatically in size, and even the rocks making up his body had changed. One could imagine how dramatically the power of the Flame Tyrant’s defense and speed had risen.
Right now, the Flame Tyrant truly was terrifying!
But to Linley, this sort of rocky defense was useless against him.
“If the Flame Tyrant didn’t shrink in size and was still hundreds of meters tall, then the rocks making up his body alone would be nearly a hundred meters thick. My ‘Profound Truths of the Earth’, after traveling a hundred meters, would probably have dropped in power to a fairly low level. It would be hard to destroy that gemstone core. But now…
Linley was quite confident in his heart.
“Now that it is only a few dozen meters tall, the translucent rock should be fairly close to the outside layer of its stone body, perhaps not even ten meters away.
The closer the distance was, the less weakened the waves of the Profound Truths of the Earth would be. At such a close distance, Linley was quite confident in himself. “If I can’t even kill him in a situation like this, then that Flame Tyrant should be a Deity-level creature.”
Desri glanced at Linley, his eyes filled with surprise and delight.
But right at that moment…
The Flame Tyrant, which had been chatting with them just now, charged at them once again. He bellowed wildly, “Haha…puny humans, none of you will survive. All of you will die!” As he spoke, he chopped out with his axe yet again.
An expert who hadn’t managed to dodge in time was chopped directly into two halves.
“Clay!” Linley’s face changed.
Clay was a very open and valiant man, with extremely powerful defense. His weakness was his speed…but no matter how tough his defense was, it still couldn’t withstand a single blow from the Flame Tyrant.
Desri, Fain, Rutherford…and Linley all retreated at high speed alongside the other major experts, pulling away from the murdering, bellowing Flame Tyrant. As they flew, Desri hurriedly spoke mentally to the others.
“Rosarie, Rutherford, Fain, Bebe, Cleo and brothers. The three of you, listen up. Linley has 70% confidence in being able to kill that Flame Tyrant, but of course, he first has to be able to get close to its body.” Desri’s voice rang out in the minds of all the other experts.
While flying at high speed, Rosarie, Rutherford, and Fain all immediately looked at Linley.
“Good. I have the energy to just barely be able to force myself to cast one more ‘Absolute Zero’.” Rosarie spoke back mentally as well. Rosarie was also a Grand Magus Saint. Generally speaking, a Grand Magus Saint would only be able to cast a single wide-effect forbidden-level spell, and even if they had some sort of precious treasure, they would at most be able to cast two.
But Rosarie was capable of casting three, even in an environment such as the sixth floor.
And clearly, the power of her spells had been modified and improved. First of all, the area of the ‘Absolute Zero’ spell had been reduced greatly; it wasn’t like how the books had written about it, with an area of dozens of square kilometers. But in terms of single-target damage, it clearly was far more powerful as well.
“We three brothers will defend Linley as he heads over towards the Flame Tyrant’s body.” One of the three Six-Eyed Golden Ni-Lions said.
Linley and Fain stared in surprise at the three Six-Eyed Golden Ni-Lions.
“You’ll be able to take one of his hits?” The experts present were all a bit worried.
The eldest of the three Six-Eyed Golden Ni-Lion, Cleo, snorted. “Don’t worry. In the past, we three brothers, alongside with our father, encountered even more dangerous situations when we were in the Gebados Prison. Although the three of us haven’t gained insight into other things, we have gained quite a bit of insight into life-saving measures.”
In the Gebados Planar Prison, the three Six-Eyed Golden Ni-Lions had continuously struggled to stay alive.
For them to be able to survive in that sort of environment was partially due to the protection of their father, Dylin, but their own power was one of the main reasons as well.
“I can also cast one more forbidden-level spell. I hope it will be able to affect the Flame Tyrant.” Desri said.
“Boss. I…” Bebe was frantic.
“Bebe, no need.” Linley knew Bebe’s situation very well. Bebe’s defense was extremely tough, but whether or not Bebe would be able to take a hit from the Flame Tyrant was something Linley wasn’t certain about. After all, Bebe hadn’t been alive for long enough. Although Godeater Rats had their own amazing powers, he hadn’t gained insight into most of them yet.
While flying at high speed, Desri was occasionally looking back and keeping an eye on the Flame Tyrant.
But suddenly, Desri’s face changed, and he let out a fierce, grief-stricken cry. “Hayward!!!”
A devilish blood red hatched cut a swathing blur through the air, and the fleeing fire-style Grand Magus Saint, Hayward, was chopped directly into two, with the chopped section disappearing into nothingness. Hayward’s two chopped halves fell down from the air, collapsing into the lava river.
“No fun.” The Flame Tyrant turned to stare at Linley and the others. “It’s more interesting dealing with you people. You sure can run.”
The Flame Tyrant’s body, dozens of meters high, transformed into a red blur, charging straight towards Linley’s group. As the Flame Tyrant charged towards them, it laughed loudly and wildly, “Haha, no matter how you run, you’ll still die. Haha…”
Only eleven or twelve of the experts in the group of twenty-plus experts which Olivier and Hayward had been in were still alive.
In a short period of time, more than ten had perished.
“Whew.” Olivier was hiding next to a boulder, and he secretly let out a relieved sigh. “This Flame Tyrant…” Olivier stared at that distant, terrifying red blur and he couldn’t help but shake his head toward himself. He was famous for his powerful attacks, but this Flame Tyrant was his bane.
And right now, the Flame Tyrant was currently chasing after Linley’s group.
“Haha, fleeing is usel-” The Flame Tyrant was laughing loudly, but he only finished half his words.
Suddenly, Rosarie turned around. Her long jade hair fluttering, she stared coldly at the distant Flame Tyrant as she extended her hands and pointed towards it.
Countless amounts of snow and frost began to descend from nowhere.
The extremely hot environment instantly transformed into a world of ice and snow, and the lava once again congealed. The flames around the Flame Tyrant’s body were extinguished, and a layer of ice and frost covered it. Only, the Flame Tyrant’s body continued to be covered by that layer of red light.
Water-style, forbidden-level magic: Absolute Zero!
“This technique yet again.” The Flame Tyrant bellowed angrily. “This technique is useless against me!” Although this spell wasn’t very effective, the Flame Tyrant truly hated it.
As a fire-type creature, the Flame Tyrant truly hated ice and snow. What he liked best was sleeping in the middle of hot lava.
The nine major experts halted in mid-air, with Rosarie and Desri in the center. After Rosarie finished casting her spell, Desri, who had been mumbling a spell this entire time, pointed one hand at the distant Flame Tyrant, and a holy aura suddenly descended.
The sound of holy chanting could be heard, and dream-like dots of white light suddenly surrounded the Flame Tyrant.
An Angel that was dozens of meters tall suddenly appeared out of nowhere, but its body was hazy and indistinct, as though it were an illusion. Behind the Angel were three sets of wings. The sudden appearance of this massive Angel caused the Flame Tyrant to be even more enraged.
Light-style forbidden-level magic: Angelic Descent.
This Angel wasn’t a true Angel; rather, it was a manifestation of light-style energy, much like the earth-style forbidden-level spell, ‘World Protector’. It wasn’t a true life form. This sort of creature was very hard to deal with, because it was formed from pure energy. It didn’t have any true vital points. The only thing that could be done was to cause it to use up all of its energy.
“F--k off.” The Flame Tyrant swung his greataxe straight at it.
This one blow from the greataxe caused the illusionary Six-Winged Angel’s body to shudder, and a good amount of its energy disappeared.
“What a ferocious axe.” Desri’s face changed, and with a sudden thought…
The illusory Six-Winged Angel suddenly charged down, not giving the Flame Tyrant any chance to dodge. All six of its wings were spread, and it suddenly clutched tightly around the Flame Tyrant, preventing the Flame Tyrant from moving while its six wings wrapped around the Flame Tyrant as well.
“Explode!” Desri softly spat out this single word.
Even the rocky ground of the sixth floor shuddered, and a storm of energy blasted in every direction, breaking apart large amounts of stone. But right in the middle of that energy storm…
“Let’s go.” Linley and the three Six-Eyed Golden Ni-Lions transformed into four blurs, charging forward.
“Linley, let us deal with the attack of the Flame Tyrant. All you need to worry about is taking and killing him.” The three Six-Eyed Golden Ni-Lions seemed very reliable and confident.
“Don’t worry.” Linley held Bloodviolet in one hand and the adamantine heavy sword in the other.
The Flame Tyrant’s body wasn’t too badly damaged, but suffering two forbidden-level spell attacks in a row had made the Flame Tyrant very angry. Bellowing madly, he charged forward once again, but as he did, the Flame Tyrant suddenly discovered that four blurs were already by his side.
“Detestable.” The furious Flame Tyrant brandished his axe, chopping down.
The Bloodlust Greataxe glowed with that blood red light as it descended, but the three Six-Eyed Golden Ni-Lions’ bodies suddenly emitted a black substance, like some sort of form-fitting armor. The strangest part of it was…atop the black armor, there was a layer of dim, multicolored barrier.
The three Six-Eyed Golden Ni-Lions didn’t dodge at all, receiving the attack of that Bloodlust Greataxe head-on as one unit. The translucent, multicolored barrier around their bodies caved downwards as the three brothers received the blow of the Bloodlust Greataxe, while Linley transformed into a black rainbow as he charged next to the Flame Tyrant.
While charging, Linley struck out with the adamantine heavy sword in his hand.
“Hrmph.” The Flame Tyrant didn’t fear Linley’s attack in the slightest. In his battle-form, his defense was several times greater than it had been originally. He didn’t fear any Saint-level human experts at all. What he did care about was these three Six-Eyed Golden Ni-Lions.
The adamantine heavy sword moved with grace, but it was as fast as lightning, and it struck directly against the chest of the Flame Tyrant.
“Clink!” A very gentle, soft sound.
The previously confident Flame Tyrant suddenly froze. A strange vibration seemed to completely ignore the defense of his rocky body, and in fact actually caused the countless stones which made up its body to begin to vibrate, as it made its way to his inner core.
When the vibrational waves reached the translucent gemstone which was his core…
The power of Linley’s full-force strike suddenly exploded. The fierce, profound power of the earth’s vibrational waves caused that translucent gemstone to instantly begin to crack, and then…
The translucent stone completely shattered into countless fragments!
Profound Truths of the Earth – Throbbing Pulse of the World, 64 Layered Waves!
Linley’s most powerful attack!
“Rumble…” The Flame Tyrant stared at Linley in disbelief. The fire that had been wrapped around his body was extinguished, and the fire that lit his eyes grew dim as well. His enormous body transformed into countless boulders which began to fall from the sky.
With the translucent stone shattered, the Flame Tyrant’s body itself began to crumble.
“Success!” Desri called out, wildly overjoyed.
“Haha, Boss, success!” Even Bebe began to shout in joy.
As for the extremely ashen-faced Rosarie, even she revealed a hint of excitement as she smiled. Rutherford and Fain also stared at the distant Linley, hovering in mid-air. It was Linley who had finally killed the Flame Tyrant and rescued everyone.
“The King…the King is dead!” The dozens of nearby Magma Demons, seeing this, were completely stupefied.
The ‘King’ whom they all felt to be invincible had been trampling these humans just a few moments ago, but now…he was dead!
“This axe is so strange.” One of the three Six-Eyed Golden Ni-Lions flew directly downwards. The Bloodlust Greataxe had already shrunk to the size of a human palm, and it had fallen by the side of a lava river. The Six-Eyed Golden Ni-Lion grabbed the axe, then flew back up.
“Linley, this divine artifact is yours.” The Six-Eyed Golden Ni-Lion offered the dark red hatchet to Linley.0October 3, 2018 at 9:25 pm #1259665
Book 11, Necropolis of the Gods – Chapter 19: Three Divine Artifacts
Linley looked at the dark red hatchet.
“Not long ago, this hatchet was over a hundred meters long, but now, it is so tiny.” Linley, in his heart, valued this axe very highly. “Most importantly, that Flame Tyrant was only a Prime Saint level expert, and yet in his hands, this axe was capable of such tremendous power.”
Linley thought of his own Bloodviolet sword.
“Both of them are divine artifacts, but in my hands, Bloodviolet is only capable of unleashing a portion of its power.”
Linley understood that his own Bloodviolet was perhaps an even more terrifying weapon, but at the Saint-level, he simply wasn’t capable of fully unleashing the power of Bloodviolet. It was much the same with the ‘Coiling Dragon’ ring. The current Linley couldn’t actively utilize the Coiling Dragon ring at all.
The more powerful an artifact was, the greater the requirements were for activating it.
However…this divine artifact axe was something which even Saints could use. To a Saint, this axe was a better weapon.
“Linley, take it. You made the greatest contributions in killing the Flame Tyrant.” Desri flew over as well.
Linley suddenly thought of Barker, and said, “Then I won’t hesitate.” At the same time, Linley accepted the dark red hatchet, storing it into his interspatial ring. “I hope Barker survived. If he truly…well, I’ll gift this axe to Gates and the others.”
Linley still felt guilt in his heart towards Barker.
“The Flame Tyrant is finally dead. But Hayward and the others…” Desri felt extremely miserable right now. Higginson, Olivier, and the rest of the twelve remaining experts flew over from afar. There had originally been over twenty of them. But now, only a few were left.
“Big brother.” Higginson was in great pain as well.
Desri and Higginson looked at each other, agony in their eyes. But they understood…ever since they chose to come to the Necropolis of the Gods, they set on a path where they could not blame others if they died. Actually, Hayward had already lived for thousands of years. Dying now wasn’t a big deal.
After all, these people had already experienced many things in life.
Olivier looked at Linley, a hint of a resigned smile on his lips. “This Linley saved me yet again.” Olivier was a very arrogant person and he hated owing others. But Linley had saved him twice now.
“Linley, your attack is very unique.” Rutherford sighed in amazement. “That Flame Tyrant had incredible defense, but your attack seemed to completely ignore it.”
Linley didn’t try to hide anything. “This is an attack which I have gained insight into which can ignore the target’s defense.”
“What a bizarre, shocking attack.” Fain sighed in amazement as well.
The nearby experts all felt their heart shudder. Linley was a Dragonblood Warrior, and thus his natural talent was at the absolute peak of what humans could reach. But now, Linley’s understanding of the Laws had reached such a terrifying level as well. Linley was more powerful than others in both aspects.
With those aspects combined, it could be said that his attack power was the greatest amongst the Saints of the Yulan continent!
“The number one Saint-level expert of the Yulan continent…that is you!” Desri sighed approvingly as he looked at Linley.
“I only possess powerful offense and decent defense. In terms of speed, I cannot compare to you and Fain, Desri.” Linley replied honestly. The understandings he had gained in the Elemental Laws of the Wind were still very far from the level of mastery.
“Right. How is Tulily?” Rosarie, looking much better now, suddenly said. “Let’s go see if he is still alive.”
“Right.” Fain and Desri nodded as well.
Tulily was the Prime Saint with the most powerful attack of the group, after all. If they wanted to make it further into the Necropolis of the Gods, they couldn’t lack someone like him. Linley and the others immediately flew towards the place where Tulily’s body had collapsed and landed next to him.
Next to the boiling hot river of lava, his body covered with blood, Tulily was currently seated cross-legged on a stone. His arms were completely shattered, and even one of his legs had been partially torn off. There was a large amount of fresh blood on his chest.
“Tulily.” Desri flew over. “You are lucky to be alive.”
Tulily, seeing Desri fly over, revealed a bitter smile on his face. “I was almost finished just then. Desri, give me a hand…your powers in utilizing healing energy is the best amongst all Saints.” Desri immediately stretched his hand out and immediately released healing magic.
At Desri’s level, he was capable of instacasting light-style magic of the ninth rank.
But Olivier, despite also training in the Laws of Light, was a warrior, after all. His healing abilities were far inferior to Desri’s.
Rosarie, Rutherford, and Fain all landed as well. Tulily looked at the four of them, then said in surprise, “Desri, how can you all be so leisurely? Can it be that you killed the Flame Tyrant? What method did you use to kill him?”
Tulily was extremely surprised. He had personally witnessed the terrible might of the Flame Tyrant.
“It was Linley who killed him.” Rosarie said, while pointing at the distant Linley, who was still in mid-air.
Tulily raised his head and glanced at Linley. “Linley?”
“Right. All by himself, he landed one sword against the body of the Flame Tyrant, and then the Flame Tyrant died.” Desri sighed in praise. “In terms of attack power, Linley has to now be ranked number one amongst the Saints of the Yulan continent.”
Soon, Tulily’s injuries were completely healed.
“That exit to the seventh floor is in the center, where the Magma Demons are clustering.” The most powerful group of Saints in the Yulan continent flew directly towards the center of the sixth floor.
Indeed, there were a large number of Magma Demons clustering here.
“That Draconian is coming. Flee, quick!” Seeing Linley, the many Magma Demons were so terrified that they immediately fled.
“Yet again, they call me a Draconian!” Linley shook his head and sighed, while Bebe snickered, “Boss, those fellows have no experience. They don’t know what a Dragonblood Warrior is. They only know about the relatively common ‘Draconian’ race which lives in the other realms. Compared to your Dragonblood Warrior lineage, Boss, those Draconians are far weaker.”
As they spoke, the many experts landed.
There was no need to fight. Linley’s prestige from being the slayer of the Flame Tyrant had caused the many Magma Demons scurrying everywhere in terror.
“The exit!” The experts immediately saw the nearby stairway. They were now in the heart of the volcano, and the stairways here emanated with a black aura. This was the exit to the seventh floor.
“Hey, what’s that?” Bebe flew over.
Next to stairway, there were two weapons there. One of the two weapons was a blood red scimitar, while the other one was a magistaff. The magistaff was topped with a large gemstone, and the powerful energy coursing through it filled Linley with awe.
“Two divine artifacts.” Desri said in astonishment, and Fain and Tulily were both shocked and delighted as well.
“Two divine artifacts?” Linley was somewhat surprised.
But then, Linley instantly understood. Lord Beirut had previously said that only on the eleventh floor of the Necropolis of the Gods would divine sparks appear, and that the first ten floors wouldn’t have any divine sparks. However, the first ten floors might have divine artifacts.”
“This is the Necropolis of the Gods. Many Deities have died here. It is normal that they left behind some divine artifacts.” Linley knew very well that divine artifacts weren’t nearly as valuable as divine sparks.
The sixth floor was so hard to defeat that for there to be a total of three divine artifacts here wasn’t too strange, actually.
“There are two more divine artifacts here. How should we divide them?” Bebe stood next to the divine artifacts and said in a loud voice.
Everyone was silent. Many people turned to look at Linley.
On the sixth floor, the person who had truly rendered the greatest merit was Linley. But of course, Rosarie and the Six-Eyed Golden Ni-Lions had contributed as well. In terms of dividing up the divine artifacts, only people who had contributed should be awarded the divine artifacts.
Linley didn’t say anything.
He had already taken one of them. If he took too many, others would feel unhappy as well.
“Everyone, let me take this scimitar. I won’t take any of the other divine artifacts that appear in the higher floors. In addition, consider this as me, Tulily, owing all of you a favor.” Tulily said with sincerity. “This scimitar truly is the type of weapon which I like the most.”
The warriors of the great plains to the far east commonly used scimitars, and Tulily himself had reached an extremely high level of skill in using them.
Only…at Tulily’s level, ordinary ‘good’ weapons weren’t as effective as Tulily’s fists. However, divine artifacts were different. Divine artifacts were usually wielded by Deities, and from this, one could imagine how powerful they were.
“Linley, what do you say?” Fain and Desri looked at Linley.
Tulily also looked hopefully towards Linley. Truthfully speaking, Tulily rarely was so nervous, but he truly was worried right now that Linley would refuse. If Linley didn’t agree, there was nothing he could do…after all, on the sixth floor, Linley had essentially saved his life.
“I have no objections.” Linley smiled as he spoke.
Although Tulily was at a very high level of enlightenment, he still felt a strong surge of excitement in his heart.
“Linley, thank you.” Tulily said solemnly towards Linley.
Tulily wasn’t a very good talker, but these two words, ‘thank you’, included boundless gratitude.
With Linley having no objection, Rosarie naturally had no objection either. As for the others…none of them were qualified to object. Tulily immediately grabbed the blood scimitar. “With this scimitar, my power will multiply several times over.” Tulily was boundlessly excited.
“Alright, the scimitar has been distributed. The magistaff?” Bebe pointed at the magistaff.
“Boss, Delia needs a magistaff, right?” Bebe said.
Rosarie, a Grand Magus Saint, had wanted to claim this divine artifact of a magistaff for herself, but hearing Bebe’s words, she no longer could speak.
Linley was paying attention to the look on Rosarie’s face.
“There will be divine artifacts on the seventh and the eighth floors as well. And it’s hard to say whether Delia will need a divine artifact or not.” Linley said mentally to Bebe. He wasn’t a person who couldn’t see the big picture. He immediately laughed and said, “It is better if we make immediate use of this divine artifact. That way, we have a better chance of surviving in the higher floors.”
Linley looked at Rosarie and Desri. “Rosarie, Desri, the two of you are Grand Magus Saints. You two decide who this divine artifact will go to.”
“Rosarie, you take it” Desri immediately said.
On the sixth floor, the various experts would prepare for roughly a month, and Rosarie and Tulily grew accustomed to their new divine artifacts as well. The first group of ten major experts all remained here on the sixth floor, while only three of the experts in the second group remained. The others had all given up and returned to the fifth floor.
One of the three experts remaining in the second group was Olivier.
Higginson had given up. Clearly, Hayward’s death had negatively impacted him quite a bit. After all, the upcoming seventh, eighth, and ninth floors would not be any less dangerous than the sixth floor.
A month passed in the blink of an eye.
Next to the flowing river of lava, Desri spoke out. “Let’s go!”
Linley, Tulily, Rosarie, Fain, Rutherford, Olivier, and the others all rose to their feet. Everyone had reached their peak condition over the course of this month.
Including Olivier’s group of three, the thirteen experts continued up into the stairway to the next floor.
Necropolis of the Gods, floor seven!
As soon as the thirteen experts of the Yulan continent entered the seventh floor, they felt a breeze.
“How comfortable.” Linley’s lips had a hint of a smile about them. Compared to the scorching hot environment of the sixth floor, the environment of the seventh floor was much better.
The seventh floor was a desert world, but Linley and the others had entered an oasis amongst the desert. This oasis was extremely large, at least ten square kilometers in size. The thirteen experts carefully inspected their surroundings, all of them on their guard.
“There’s water in the distance.” Bebe saw the lake in the middle of the oasis, and couldn’t help but feel excited.
“Hey? What’s going on with the plants in this place? Why is the grass here so sharp?” Desri frowned as he spoke.
The ‘oasis’ suddenly moved, and tens of thousands of tendrils of vegetation rose into the sky, as this ‘oasis’ of ten square kilometers in size suddenly enveloped all of the experts within. Linley, as well, was suddenly trapped in this prison of countless blades of grass and leaves.
“Not good.” Linley’s face changed dramatically, and a devilish flash of violet light suddenly flashed out in his hand.
“Ah!” A miserable scream split the air from afar.
In the blink of an eye, another expert had been heavily injured or killed. Who knew which of the thirteen it was?0October 3, 2018 at 9:25 pm #1259666
Book 11, Necropolis of the Gods – Chapter 20: The Magical Beasts in Action
The thick, dense grass had completely surrounded Linley in an airtight seal, and the surrounding grass and leaves were gurgling. The grass tendrils were wildly squeezing down, and in the blink of an eye, the pressure was so great that Linley’s face began to change color.
“The strength of this pressure alone would instantly crush most Saints into meat pulp.” Linley said to himself.
“This plant life form is dozens of times more formidable than the plant life form on the second floor!” Linley didn’t dare to waste any time.
“Break!” Bloodviolet in his hands flashed…
Wherever Bloodviolet passed by, spacetime froze and then folded over itself, and a spatial blade appeared at the blade of the weapon. Although the grass tendrils were tens of times more durable than the vines of the plant life form of the second floor, in front of Bloodviolet, they were still chopped open as easily as pieces of cloth.
The shattered pieces of grass and tendrils exploded everywhere, and Linley shot out of the prison of dense grass like an arrow.
“Boss, I’m fine!” A tunnel suddenly appeared in another distant ball of grass, and then Bebe, his entire body covered with black light, flew out at high speed.
“Bebe, what technique is this?” Linley felt joy in his heart.
“I’m a Deity-level magical beast, the ‘Godeater Rat’.” Bebe raised his little head proudly, but then Bebe noticed the scene not too far away…a large amount of grass had formed a massive ball, clearly surrounding a person, and within that massive ball of grass, a faint hint of white light could be seen.
“Boss, Desri’s not looking so good.” Bebe instantly recognized that it was Desri who was radiating that white light.
Linley had noticed as well. Without hesitating at all, he immediately flew over there while sending out his spiritual energy to scout the situation inside. He clearly saw that inside…Desri’s body was covered with a faintly glowing armor of light that was protecting his entire body, while many white arrows of light were attacking the grass surrounding him wildly.
Unfortunately, the grass tendrils were simply too durable.
“Swish!” Bloodviolet flew out and multiple rays of violet light flashed past the grass, chopping them apart.
Desri escaped from his prison. Upon seeing it was Linley, he immediately said, “Thanks. That grass monster really was tough. Even my instacast spells of the ninth rank weren’t able to break through it. Without your help, it really would have been problematic.”
A red light suddenly flashed by, and grass flew everywhere. Tulily, wielding that divine artifact, the blood red scimitar, flew out and into the skies. With this scimitar, Tulily was like a tiger who had been given wings. Tulily even roared angrily, “Who is it? Don’t skulk around. If you have any ability, come and fight us openly.”
“Bang!” Yet another ball of grass exploded, and Rutherford, his entire body covered with blue light, escaped from his imprisonment as well.
One expert after another escaped.
However, at present, Olivier’s situation was quite dire.
Just now, surrounded and crushed by those countless tendrils of grass, Olivier didn’t have the chance to react at all. And he suddenly discovered…
All of the blades of grass crushing him suddenly began to grind against him at high speed. These grass tendrils all had extremely sharp edges, and this constant high speed grinding…made these grass tendrils constantly slice against his body like sharp fangs, or a sawtooth which a farmer might use to plow the earth.
In the blink of an eye, Olivier’s body was sliced open.
“Hrmph.” Olivier’s eyes turned cold.
“Swish!” A brilliant light flashed, and shattered bits of grass flew everywhere.
His long, flowing hair colored both black and white, and with that black icy sword in his hands, Olivier flew into the air. Only, Olivier’s body had a hint of blood on it. Olivier was secretly shocked. “What a fierce saw.”
The thirteen experts floated there in mid-air. Desri looked around him, then let out a sigh of relief. “Fortunately, no one died.”
Olivier glanced at a nearby Saint. This human Saint’s waist already had a huge wound around the waist. “Karossa [Ka’luo’sa], that really was quite dangerous. You almost lost your life.” That man named Karossa let out an exhausted breath as well. “Very nearly. That creature’s ‘teeth’ were simply too fierce. If I had been slightly slower in reacting, those grass tendrils probably would have plunged into my body.”
“Plunged into your body?” Linley and Fain, upon hearing this, couldn’t help but feel shocked.
If the grass tendrils were to enter one’s body, most likely they would ravage the internal organs almost instantly.
“Don’t move.” Desri flew to one of the human experts, executing healing magic on him.
This Karossa was one of the three experts in the second group.
The three experts in that second group consisted of two humans, Karossa and Olivier, and one magical beast, a Blackscale Scorpion King. Blackscale Scorpions were generally beasts of the ninth rank, but this Blackscale Scorpion King had trained to the peak Saint level, which was quite incredible and rare.
“I hate encountering these plant life forms.” Linley lowered his head, studying the area around him.
The area below was covered in sand. The previous ‘oasis’ had already completely disappeared, leaving behind only some tendrils of shattered grass. Linley had earlier witnessed with his own eyes those undamaged tendrils of grass sink down into the sand and disappear.
“Let’s go.” Desri said. “If that plant creature doesn’t bother us again, let’s not waste the time to deal with it either. The most important thing right now is to find the entrance to the eighth floor.”
“Let’s go.” Linley and the others all nodded.
The thirteen experts didn’t pay any more attention to that plant creature, quickly flying away and beginning their search in the boundless desert.
“Yet another oasis up ahead.” Fain frowned and shouted loudly.
Linley took a close look. Indeed, in the distance, there was a hazy hint of green. Upon flying a bit closer to it, everyone could clearly see that it was indeed a massive oasis. After the previous experience, however, nobody would be incautious again.
“Let’s not get too close.” Rosarie shook her head. “Let’s stay farther away from it. That monster is very hard to deal with.”
Everyone agreed, and the group intentionally made their way around the oasis. But after Linley’s group flew away in another direction, that green oasis actually sank down into the sand, while the sand itself began to tremble slightly.
The direction the vibrations in the sand were heading (at high speed) was, quite coincidentally, the direction in which Linley’s group were flying.
“Hrm?” The Blackscale Scorpion King, at the very back of the line, glanced downwards and then immediately shouted in warning, “Everyone, be careful. That monster is currently hurrying towards us at high speed from below the sand.”
In the Mountain Range of Magical Beasts, magical beasts would often launch ambushes from below. As a Saint-level magical beast, the Blackscale Scorpion was quite familiar with this type of attack.
“That really does seem to be the case.” Linley, Fain, Tulily, and the others all halted in mid-air, staring below.
If one looked carefully, one would be able to see…that on the surface of the sand, there were one or two barely noticeable tendrils of grass. This sort of plant creature could use all of the grass as its ‘eyes’. Wherever the grass could see, it could see as well.
“What should we do?” Linley, Desri, and the others looked at each other.
To kill this plant creature was very troublesome, but how could they just allow it to follow in such a sinister manner?
Like two sharp arrows, two long tendrils of green grass suddenly shot out from beneath the sand, wrapping themselves around Desri’s legs in almost the same instant. These two tendrils of grass were as thick as a man’s arm, and there were a large number of smaller blades of grass on top of them as well.
In an instant, they surrounded Desri.
They suddenly pulled downwards, hard. The two tendrils of grass had shot out at simply too fast a pace. Shooting out, wrapping around, pulling down. In the blink of an eye, Desri was pulled down. Desri let out a furious roar, while at the same time, sending a wild Mindstorm towards the below area.
“Not good.” The faces of Linley and the others changed, and they immediately chased downwards as well.
“Thud…” Desri was pulled directly into the sand, and in the blink of an eye, he disappeared from everyone’s field of vision. The surface of the sand looked so ordinary, as though nothing had happened.
“Go down!” Bebe shouted loudly.
Bebe, the three Six-Eyed Golden Ni-Lions, the Blackscale Scorpion didn’t hesitate at all. The five magical beasts shrank in size rapidly while charging down into the desert. It was very troublesome to dig when one was physically large. Compared to magical beasts, human experts definitely weren’t as fast when they tunneled through the ground.
Fain, Rosarie, Tulily, and the rest of the seven waited there in mid-air, not knowing what to do.
“Right now, we can only place our hopes on Bebe and the others. Hopefully, they’ll be able to rescue Desri.” Linley himself wasn’t able to do anything.
If he entered the sand, first of all, his digging speed would be lowered by half, and he simply wouldn’t be able to chase down the plant creature.
“That grass monster’s tendrils are simply too fast. They move like an expert wielding a sword.” Tulily was frowning. “In a flash, they wrapped around Desri’s legs. In addition, just then, Desri utilized a spiritual attack, but it seemed to not have any effect.”
“It’s impossible for it to have any effect.” Linley shook his head. “That monster’s body was as large as the oasis itself, ten square kilometers. Just now, only its tendrils were revealed. Its main body is most likely many kilometers away from us. Desri wasn’t certain where the monster’s body was. For him to just wildly cast his spiritual energy without knowing where to aim…it would be impressive if he was able to harm it at all.”
Olivier let out a cold sneer. “That Desri was looking to be killed.”
“Why would you say such a thing?” Fain and the others looked unhappily at Olivier.
Olivier glanced at them, then said calmly, “The Necropolis of the Gods has countless creatures here, and the techniques one would use against humans aren’t necessarily suitable. This Desri is just a Grand Magus Saint. When faced with a sudden attack, at most he would be able to instacast a spell. But how powerful could the spells he is capable of instacasting be? Against these sorts of monsters, those spells don’t pose a threat at all. And yet, he still came to the Necropolis of the Gods. Isn’t that looking to be killed?”
“What sort of talk is this?” Rosarie was somewhat unhappy.
“Grand Magus Saints are poor at close combat, but upon reaching the Deity-level and upon gaining their divine body, they will naturally have their deficiencies in close combat addressed.” Fain said.
But Linley actually felt that Olivier’s words made some sense. Grand Magus Saints were indeed weak when facing sudden attacks.
“So?” Olivier said calmly, “After becoming a Deity, one will indeed be transformed and gain a divine body! Divine bodies are extremely powerful and suited for close combat.”
Olivier laughed mockingly, “But then, why wait until becoming a Deity? Can’t a Grand Magus Saint, upon reaching the Saint-level, spend a little bit of time and effort on his close combat skills. To the likes of Desri, a few hundred years is nothing much.”
“To have a Grand Magus Saint become a Warrior Saint as well? Do you think it’s as easy as that?” Fain frowned as he spoke.
“Enough.” Linley said. “Enough talk. Everyone has their own opinions.”
Linley’s face suddenly had a look of delight on it. “Excellent, that creature has been dragged out.”
“Dragged out?” Everyone was surprised and delighted, immediately looking downwards.
The sand below began to rumble, and then rose up. Finally, with a ‘boom’ sound, sand exploded everywhere, and the first one to fly out was Desri. Desri’s body was covered with bloodstains, and his face was rather pale. Upon seeing Linley and the others, he still let out a chuckle. “That was really dangerous.”
“Boss, we’re coming.” Bebe’s voice rang out.
And then, Bebe also emerged from the sands, while in Bebe’s claws there was a thick tendril of grass, the thickness of a man’s arm. Using the thick tendril of grass, he actually dragged out the monster from below, and an enormous creature appeared in front of everyone.
This was a creature at least ten stories high, and its entire body was covered by thick, earthen yellow tendrils of grass roots, at least the size of a house.
The grass roots surrounding the monster’s body were only a hundred meters long at most. Clearly, all of the longer grass tendrils had already been broken off. Bebe dragged the monster up, while below came the three Six-Eyed Golden Ni-Lions and the Blackscale Scorpion.
“This fellow still wants to flee? Jeeze…” Bebe, holding that tendril in his hands, easily spun the massive creature a few times in mid-air, as though it were a giant windmill. “Boss, I thought it would be very powerful, but I didn’t expect it to be as soft as a persimmon. Boss, how do you want to deal with this monster? Your call.”
The Blackscale Scorpion flew over as well. “This fellow really was nothing special. It only knew those two or three attacks. When we drew near it, it was finished.”2+October 3, 2018 at 9:28 pm #1259669

New Update Book 11 Chapter 1-200October 3, 2018 at 10:38 pm #1259698
NECROPOLIS OF THE GODS: FOUNDING OF AN EMPIRE…
When Zassler voiced out the idea of Linley unifying the entire Arnachic land to Baker, i taught the old man was crazy but right now that it has happened, i would the old man is a “VISIONARIAN”. The Proulx Gallary will also be launching a branch in the Baruch Empire, clearly its not just going to be only them, more organisations are still coming.
The War God is calling all the powerful saints to assemble, clearly a major event is about to take place.0October 3, 2018 at 10:55 pm #1259707
At last Linley have found the part he is going to train in, after combining all 256 layer waves into just 1 layer, by then he should be just a step away from being a diety.
Bebe is back?, wow lets go find out about Bebe’s heritage.0October 3, 2018 at 11:15 pm #1259712
Bebe’s heritage is like remove a blind from someone’s eye and letting him see. Dilion and Rudi are both going to die for sure cos nothing can replace Bebe’s parents in his mind.
Godeater rat?! I think i understand these, Bebe is an hybrid, with its father being a Stone-eater rat and the mother is a shadowmice the child inherit the defence of the father and the speed of its mother making him extremely powerful. I hope am right?0October 3, 2018 at 11:34 pm #1259715
DEITY LEVEL MAGICAL BEASTS…
I failed, woefully! Even if Bebe didnt train, when he reached full adulthood he is going to reach the diety level, just like that! Bebe’s lineage is really mysterious.0
