Chapter 861: Real Masters!
Translator: Noodletown Translations Editor: Noodletown Translations
Inside the Heaven-Devouring Turtle, there was a huge space in which the demon soldiers and generals were stationed. Hiding here, they commanded the troops outside.
This was the command center inside the Heaven-Devouring Turtle.
At this moment, all the demon soldiers and generals knelt on one knee with great respect on their faces.
Before them sat a brawny man dressed in pitch-black armor.
The man looked totally different from humans. With twisted horns on his forehead, his face was engulfed in gloomy and fierce presence. His skin emitted a metal glare, and his armor seemed to be part of his body. Compared to humans, he looked more like an… evil demon!
This being rested one arm on the armrest of the throne that was made of bones.
Before him was a clear projected screen that showed the scenes outside.
Countless demon soldiers soared up into the sky like black feathers. At this moment, black smoke covered the rivers, mountains, and land!
The humans who were like ants and bugs didn’t scramble to run. Instead, they dared to launch attacks!?
“My Lord…” The demon generals sensed the presence, and they felt uneasy, afraid that this being would destroy the Heaven and Earth in a burst of fury!
The demonic god sitting high on the throne of bones had cold glints in his eyes. “It’s okay.”
They never thought that the bug-like mortals could be their enemies, but it wasn’t a bad thing to let the demon soldiers and generals get some warm-up exercises before the real battle.
Instantly, turbid waves surged and shot up into the high sky above the Yellow Spring Sea.
A streak of pitch-black evil presence spread out in all directions and gradually engulfed the whole sea area. The gloomy winds made those places look like the chilly… Nine-Fold Darkness Realm!
The huge Heaven-Devouring Turtle in the distance was also engulfed in the vast evil presence. When the gloomy winds blew at the evil presence, people could see the demon army with chilly auras standing on the mountain-like head and continent-like back of the Heaven-Devouring Turtle in neat formations!
More frightening was that even mere demon soldiers emitted scary energies, let alone the horrifying monster which looked like a demonic god.
Perhaps this was the legendary demonic god who could devour the Heaven and Earth!
A huge noise sounded.
The huge Heaven-Devouring Turtle waved its giant palm, looking as if a heavenly pillar crashed down, surging up a heavenly curtain made of seawater. Two spiritual ships that were not quick enough to dodge were viciously crushed by the currents.
Like a piece of paper, the pale spiritual light shield was shattered. Then, the spiritual ships instantly collapsed under this strike. While screaming, countless cultivators were swept into the ocean waves and got devoured by the turbid sea!
At this moment, all the cultivators paused their attacks and felt chills running down their spines!
At this moment, they remembered that it was the first time that they faced such enemies!
Games? They had killed god-level enemies in the games, but they would never really die in the games. They could detect their enemies’ weaknesses through deaths and find a solution in the end.
But in the real world, they knew almost nothing about their enemies.
There was a big difference and barrier between the real world and the virtual world. Reality was always harsher than the ideal world.
Right now, they were facing existences truly beyond mortals! Before such demons, humans were like ants that were floating on an ocean!
Feeling the vast ocean-like power, these people didn’t doubt that a casual strike from their enemies would turn all of them into dust!
Besides, when they were in the game, they could easily use certain skills since they had the talent of the main characters.
But in the real world, they probably couldn’t use these skills. Their cultivation strength wasn’t even as powerful as one ten-thousandth of the main characters’ strength.
This was the difference between the real world and the virtual world.
It would be fine if these enemy troops were like the troops of the Judgement Godly Palace which concentrated only on cultivation strength instead of skills.
However, the enemies had obtained great combat force on the bloody battleground while fighting with gods! They went through blood oceans and corpse mountains!
In a few moments, the black currents made of demon soldiers swarmed toward the spiritual ships like a black tsunami, bringing intense murderous spirit with them!
Instantly, they engaged in combat with the cultivators and warriors on the battleships, forcing the latter to retreat continuously.
“Pu-!” The Nanhua Faction Master was casting spells when he was struck by a demon hiding in the demonic presence. Then, a demon that was ten meters tall lunged at him with a roar.
A sword beam flashed, and Nalan Hongwu ran to his rescue.
“Leave me; go and rescue the others!” The Nanhua Faction Master pushed Nalan Hongwu away and then killed his way into the crowd of monsters!
Seeing the fierce battle, Nalan Hongwu felt as if he was teleported to the battlefield hundreds of years ago before Dajin was established. In that battle, he was ambushed by enemies, and the entire battlefield was dark with fierce killing. He didn’t know when the battle would end.
Coming with lofty ideas but being beaten into a bloody pulp by the cruel reality!
This was how he felt right now.
The old man who was a veteran of wars again felt the heaviness of wars many years later.
“Cackle… Humans are still so useless…”
The demonic god sitting on the throne of bones sneered. In his hand was a black three-legged cauldron full of crimson liquid, and the pungent smell filled the air. It seemed to be a special beverage made with the blood of a certain demon beast and some unknown processes.
He gulped it down, and a shocking blood trace was left on his chin.
“Go and tell them to bring out all the masters that they have.” The demonic god said indifferently, “We can treat them as an appetizer before the war.”
“Didn’t you do the raid?! Can’t you handle it as you did with Anton?!” While he was thinking, Nalan Hongwu heard a roar.
“But we don’t have any intelligence on these demons!”
Nalan Hongwu wished that he could handle this giant turtle as Anton!
They looked similar, but wars were not games. These players could learn the skills and combat techniques from the games, but how could they copy the tactics from the games?!
They were not stupid and knew that they would fail miserably if they copied the strategies in the games to deal with the demons in the real world.
Besides, even though this demon looked like Anton, they were not of the same species. It wasn’t something that these players could play with!
One mistake would plunge all of them into a catastrophic situation.
They could kill Anton since they had sent teams to cut off its energy supply and suppress its power as much as they could. Otherwise, the result would be different.
But now, how could they suppress this horrifying demon?!
“Shop owner… where is he?” Nalan Mingxue browsed her communication jade while a layer of sweat appeared on her forehead.
Even Zong Wu and others were trying to contact Fang Qi.
It must be noted that even in the battle with the Judgement Godly Palace, the shop owner had watched them from behind, which was why they didn’t have to think about failure as the shop owner had their backs.
At this moment, Zong Wu received a message. [I… I can’t be there in a short while.]
[No matter what, you must try it once by yourselves.] Mr. Fang sounded tired.
[What if something unexpected happens…?] Zong Wu asked in alarm.
[Then, change your plan accordingly!] Mr. Fang looked up. The auspicious clouds blocking the sun released an even more horrifying presence. Obviously, Mr. Fang would have a tough battle before the new shop on the East Continent!
[Remember, you guys are also true masters…] Fang Qi recorded this sentence on his communication jade and clicked [Send].
Zong Wu suddenly froze as he held onto his communication jade.
“We… are also masters?!”
“Old Ghost Zong, what did Kid Fang say?!” At this moment, Nalan Hongwu grabbed Zong Wu’s communication jade from his hand.
“He said… we… are also masters,” Zong Wu said, “Real masters.”
Before they knew it, they were no longer the noobs who complained whenever they encountered a difficult stage and must beg Mr. Fang to show them the walkthrough.
Without hints and help from anyone else, they had cleared the Anton raid which was extremely difficult to pass and killed the horrifying apostle which was even more powerful than gods.
Now, they were also masters…
“Do we define masters as people who fight battles according to the directions from guides?!”
“Everyone! Everyone! Just now… the Cultivation Alliance got some intelligence at the risk of their lives after hearing that you are members of the party who completed the Anton raid and are familiar with the battle method of dealing with this kind of huge beast.” At this moment, Mo Xian, Liu Ningyun, and other Nanhua Faction elites fought their way through demon crowds with several jade slips in their hands.
“Are we really going to do it…?!” Zong Wu looked grim.
It was a raid that they must win in one try. Otherwise, not only themselves, but all other people would die!
“All the raid teams! All the raid teams! Gather!”
The people from the Cultivator Alliance and different factions also worked together.
“Support. Give them support as much as we can!”
“The raid… begins!”
Inside the huge Heaven-Devouring Turtle, the demon soldiers and generals were all watching the situation outside.
At great risks, the human spiritual ships spread out in one neat line before the Heaven-Devouring Turtle. Then, about 20 people broke through the demon soldiers’ frontline and landed on the huge head of the Heaven-Devouring Turtle!
In the surging murderous spirit and demonic smoke, several teams stood in a strange formation.
One had holy light rising before him, one had dazzling thunderbolts around him, one controlled pure sword beams, and one looked as bloodthirsty as a demon…
At one quick glance, they looked like godly statues from the ancient time who stood in surging murderous spirit.
For a moment, these demons felt like they saw the illusion that true gods had been born on this battleground!
