Nietono no Shana’s flame raged forward. He used the highest output level of his flame sword.
Dense crimson flames rose up from the blade to form a 1-meter high wall of flames. The shocking temperature blew away the moisture in the surrounding air. Scorching embers scattered everywhere like he’s standing in the middle of a flame waterfall.
The beast king took the fireworks show lightly. Without moving, a wall of bones popped up from the ground and it covered the beast king like a glutinous rice cake.
The flames scorched the bony-white wall but it couldn’t reduce the barrier to ashes by itself.
Wu Yan’s eyes flashed and the flames warped around the wall to strike the beast king hiding behind the wall. The beast king responded with a slightly smaller wall on the side.
His flames failed to do anything other than blow hot air around his target.
“It isn’t over just yet!”
Wu Yan roared and he jumped into the air. He stomped in the air and ripples in space opened around the beast king. Cannons started appearing out of the portals, these cannons were trained on the beast king.
Wu Yan started channeling lightning, the lightning overtook his flames and it lit up the whole place. He looked like a lightning spider that is weaving a web of electricity. He charged up his cannons with his lightning power, the cannons started glowing ominously.
The beast king observed his move with composure. When he wanted to move, chains shot out of the portals to restrain him. He was momentarily disabled due to this sudden attack.
He uttered the name of this technique and bluish-white lasers shot out from the cannons to assault the restrained target.
The remnant energy crackled along the ground, sparking mini-explosions all over the place. If this was normal terrain and not the beast king’s shell, the ground would have given away a long time ago.
Wu Yan isn’t happy that his attacks landed. He looked on with a grim look. He knows about the destructiveness of Maximum Impact but he’s sure the demigod tier beast king wouldn’t be so weak as to be wounded by a technique of this level.
A bony structure in the form of a cube appeared, unscathed even after the baptism of lightning. It’s still crackling with static electricity but Wu Yan’s expression darkened.
The beast king nonchalantly exited his cube of bones. He praised Wu Yan earnestly.
“Not bad, not bad at all. Even a tier 9 monster specialized in defense would have been hurt from that…”
The beast king continued walking towards him.
“It’s useless against me…”
Wu Yan flinched in shock but he replied with a grin.
“I never intended for it to hurt you though…”
The beast king stopped and he turned around only to see three feminine figures behind him and to his sides. They struck at the same time with the swords in their hands.
Astrea, Hinagiku, and Fei Fei used a combo attack on him.
The lofty beast king was surprised by this turn of events. He’s not afraid of their attacks, he’s just surprised with the condition Astrea, Hinagiku, and Fei Fei are in.
He personally saw his bony spikes skewering them with his own eyes!
The beast king recalled that Wu Yan was fine after being turned into a human-sized pincushion. He’s fighting just fine right now so maybe the other humans boast similar regenerative powers?
Or was it the potion?
The beast king is certainly a league apart from the other demonic beasts. It linked the odd scene with the potion they drank. Heck, the beast king is probably smarter than the average human.
The beast king only got half of his guess correct. The girls are fine because of the invulnerability potion but Wu Yan’s case is a bit different.
The beast king made 3 gigantic marrows shoot out from the ground as he attempted to pierce Astrea, Hinagiku, and Fei Fei with them. Before they can attack the beast king, they were sent back by the shock of the impact.
However, the beast king revealed a grim look, a first since the start of the fight.
He was pretty sure the attacks landed but a weird light flashed when his attack fell upon Astrea, Hinagiku, and Fei Fei.
The beast king knew his attacks failed to do any damage.
Astrea, Hinagiku, and Fei Fei stabilized themselves and they surrounded the beast king once more. Not a single hair on them was harmed from his attacks. Astrea and Hinagiku kept their eyes on the beast king without losing focus while Fei Fei is busy examining her body.
She felt the effects of the potion but she still couldn’t believe her perceptions. To think there would be such a heaven-defying potion in this world, who in the hell made them?
The beast king had a very gloomy look for a second there but he recovered and turned steel-cold once more.
It’s like he’s trying to test the limits of the potion. He shot out a barrage of bone spears that were aimed specifically at Astrea, Hinagiku, and Fei Fei. This time, he used what appeared to be a sea of spears to overwhelm them.
Astrea, Hinagiku, and Fei Fei deflected the attacks with their blades. The force carried by the bonus pears were also greatly mitigated by the Resplendent Breath potion. For a brief while, no bony spears managed to land on Astrea or Hinagiku.
Unlike Astrea and Hinagiku who already entered the eighth tier of power, she’s still at peak tier 7 in terms of power. A few spears struck her in the span of a few seconds and she felt frustrated over it.
She thought back about how Wu Yan & co basically carried them through the forest, her squad and her was pretty much not needed on this trip. She yelled at herself, is she going to continue being so unsightly?
No! Yan and the others are fighting hard for everyone’s sake! I can’t give up so easily, I need to fight harder!”
Fei Fei lifted her head and do qi started burning around her. She made her douqi expand about a hundred times larger and she somehow pulled out dozens of times the power she can use during her peak form.
It was like he got the blessings of a god or something. She swung her Night Elf and she demolished every bone spear coming her way with her sword beam. She was like a martial goddess incarnate.
Fei Fei flinched in joy when she observed the changes in her body. Even the beast king was slightly shocked by her growth.
Fei Fei made her breakthrough!
“She ascended? Into tier 8?”
Bing Ling and Bishi were stunned by her display, they didn’t know what to make of this.
They were on the same level as her just a few seconds ago. Now that she made a breakthrough, she basically left them in the dust.
Maybe, if they actually tried to fight like her, they would have achieved a breakthrough as well…
Bing Ling and Bishi looked at the beast king and his aura of terror. They immediately scrapped their thoughts.
Even if they are invulnerable, they still wouldn’t touch that monster with a 60-foot pole.
