Chapter 555: The Divine Punishment
Translator: Oneshotwonder Editor: Hitesh_
The death of their leader rendered the Zergs into disarray. Panicking, the Zergs charged at the human soldiers with abandon. Although the pressure on the city was reduced, the three hundred or so human warriors that were trapped behind the enemy lines faced a vicious retaliation. In a heartbeat, more than a dozen soldiers fell to the ground.
“Pamir, don’t mind me. I am almost done for! Go ahead and save yourself! Marcos said as he took a few deep breaths to cope with the pain.
“Buzz off! It’s not like I care about you or anything. I just don’t want to get bored due to lack of competition. ” Pamir shot back.
“Everyone, form a charge formation. We will safeguard captain Marcos back to the city!” Pamir shouted before he dove into the sea of Zergs.
“Captain, what about us? None of them will come back if we don’t act now.” Han urged Aamir.
Aamir held a cigar in between his lips as he struck down a couple of Zergs that made their way into the city. He wanted to send his men to rescue those warriors who were trapped. However, he knew that regardless of how many fighters he sent out, they would be overwhelmed instantly by the Zerg army. The fate of those trapped warriors was already sealed, but he could still try to save them by himself.
“I will go!”
“Captain, let me go out there and save them!”
“Shut up! You are a mastery caster. Going out there is courting death for yourself.”
Meanwhile, the Zergs’ insistent attack had forced Battle Wolf into the last line of defense. It would only be a matter of time before the area they were guarding would be occupied by the Zergs. However, the warriors there were trying all they could to prevent this from happening. They knew that once the Zergs were able to tear an opening in the defense line, Aamir would have to face enemies on both fronts.
“Aamir, you b*stard!” Marcos shouted. However, he didn’t resent the latter’s decision for not sending anyone out here to help them. He knew a long time ago that Aamir was a compassionate person; but as a commander, he had to value the lives of every single soldier. Marcos had always known that if Aamir had been any more selfish, he would have already become the leader of the most powerful of war band in the Maersa district.
When the dawn broke, the battle had been going on for an entire night. The mindless Zergs still rushed at the city tirelessly, but the human soldiers were exhausted beyond words.
Suddenly, a group of high-level warriors appeared in the sky, and they immediately attracted the attention of the Zergs. Seeing that the leaders of the major factions were in trouble, Hans urged the mastery casters to gather whatever was left in their sea of consciousness and cast fire spells to help the leader’s fighting.
The b*stards from the Jade City still didn’t show up.
Marcos struck down another Zerg, after which, he no longer had the energy to lift his blade to block another sharp claw that was already coming at him from the side. Marcos felt the time slow down as memories flooded his mind. He had been a proud soldier, a respect warlord; he was fearless…
The Zerg’s attack closed in…
At that moment, a large beam of white light, about a hundred meters in radius, suddenly cast upon Marcos, and all the Zergs within that light simply melted; flesh, chitin, and all.
Wang Tong helped Marcos to his feet and said, “Captain Marcos, leave the rest to us!”
Another hundred or so warriors suddenly appeared on the battlefield. But what could these hundred or so soldiers achieve?
At that moment, one of those soldiers attacked, and the battlefield was brightened by the overbearing blade Aura: a Legendary Warrior!
The sight rekindled hope in everyone’s heart, and the legendary soldier attacked again. Energies from the earth poured into the blade as it grew in size by the second. The power had shocked even the leaders of the factions.
This was the power of a level twenty-three legendary warrior!
“By the Gods! Who is this guy?”
Meanwhile, two of the warriors started casting spells while floating in the air. They were easily visible, and people quickly identified them as Guan Dongyang and Xiao Yuyu.
However, their soul energy suggested that they had reached a legendary level. Was that even possible?
In a blink, the Zergs near the city wall were reduced into ashes. However, that was far from the highlight of the fight. Wang Tong raised his Einherjar Lance and aimed at the mass of the Zergs that were still pouring into the city. His face held a deadly calm that reflected death.
“KILLLLLL!” Wang Tong’s voice shook the ground and reverberated in the sky like a mighty thunder. Hearing his battle cry, the one hundred or so warriors cranked up their soul energy. Their power rendered Aamir speechless. Astonished, Aamir didn’t even notice the cigar fall out of his wide opened mouth as he murmured quietly to himself, “This is insane… Haha… the Zergs are done for!”
Among the soldiers that had shown up late, over a third of them were level twenty.
They were the true elite forces.
After the four legendary warriors had alleviated the pressure at the city wall, they led the charge and dove head first into the bulk of the Zerg formation.
Behind the METAL warriors, the mastery casters unleashed death onto the Zergs with an incredible speed. The field medics that were dotted amongst the soldiers were capable of both attacking the enemy and healing at the same time.
Despite their inferior numbers, they slaughtered Zergs with incredible efficiency and ease.
Suddenly, a giant golden dragon appeared behind the Zerg line and flanked them from the rear. It wasn’t until then that Hamir had finally realized what had happened. “Brothers! Our captain has returned!”
Overspent and exhausted, the soldiers of Battle wolf had been laying on the ground, trying to get a brief moment of respite. However, as soon as they heard the news, they sprung to their feet and looked to the battlefield.
Was the captain back?
Some of the new additions of the band didn’t even know what their band leader looked, like since Wang Tong and others had been missing ever since the day they joined Battle Wolf.
They watched in amazement as the Zergs completely halted their attacks at the City wall and poured all of their forces to fight in a golden circle. Hamir’s hands were trembling. “Did you see that one with the blade? He is our captain’s personal guard, Yin Tianzong.”
“Gosh! Legendary Caster!”
“That is our lieutenant Guan Dongyang. Did you really think that you are the only ones left in Battle Wolf ?”
“Who is that girl? She is so pretty!”
“That’s the Sect’s chief Medic, Xiao Yuyu. She is our captain’s friend.”
The new additions of Battle Wolf watched their leaders with admiration. Before this point, they all felt being cheated by the recruitment advertisements, since none of them had seen the powerful warriors it had promised.
Under the leadership of the two legendary warriors on the battlefield, the METAL fighters were able to form an impenetrable shield in front of the Mastery casters, who dished out devastation under the leadership of Guan Dongyang and Xiao Yuyu.
Before this battle, the only legendary caster the world had ever known was Michaux Odin.
These soldiers didn’t just improve their power, they had also toughened their nerves and sharpened their focus. While facing the sea of Zergs who were as ferocious as demons straight from hell, these warriors didn’t flinch.
These were the God’s Warriors!
Although the Zergs’ numbers were larger than the human warriors by a few dozen magnitudes, none of the onlookers felt worried for these amazing warriors. The swarms of Zerg that charged against the soldiers were like meat against a grinding machine.
Battle Wolf’s awe and respect toward their leader were shared by other warbands. Only after seeing these soldiers descend from the gate of Valhalla did they finally see hope in liberating the humans on Mars.
Marcos, Pamir, and Aamir finally reunited and they looked at each other with a wry smile.
“Are we getting too old?”
“What do you mean, Aamir? We can still fight!”
“Well, I felt old after seeing what those lads could do!”
“Haha, old man, you should count yourself lucky for still being alive. Don’t you remember that you had ticked off Battle Wolf two times in a row?”
Marcos laughed after hearing Pamir’s remark, overexerting himself and opening up his wound. He quickly pressed on the wound and coughed violently. However, his injury didn’t take the joy out of him. The battle would soon be over, and a new leader of the Maersa District was born.
The three of them had been waiting for a more powerful and capable warrior to take over their responsibility, and today, they had finally found such a warrior.
Everyone had been watching Guan Dongyang and Yin Tianzong’s moves closely. Yin Tianzong’s level twenty-three power meant that he was four to five times stronger than a level twenty-one legendary warrior. Meanwhile, Guan Dongyang was putting on the most splendid fire show the crowd had ever seen.
Seeing that the situation was finally under control, Wang Tong decided that it was time to end the battle. He was about to unleash his coup de grace.
