Dragon-Marked War God - Chapter 723
Inescapable Even with Wings
A First Grade Minor Saint launched an attack. It was undoubtedly destructive. To a Combat Emperor, it was akin to Mount Taishan came crushing down on him. A Minor Saint could simply use the sphere of energy that could confine all beings in one attack. It was similar to Black Elder. His big hand struck and locked on to Jiang Chen’s Qi, attempting to pinch him to death.
The middle-aged head and the other assassins smiled when they saw Black Elder attack. In their perspective, Jiang Chen would definitely die under his attack. He was a First Grade Minor Saint. It was impossible for Jiang Chen to survive this attack.
However, Jiang Chen didn’t even glance at Black Elder’s attack. Two ghostly silhouettes rushed out from his body. The entire atmosphere was filled with dark and chill Qi after the emergence of the two silhouettes. It sent chills to people’s souls.
Two rumbling howls resounded through the sky. Everyone could see them. Two human skeletons of about fifty meters tall appeared. One of them stuck out its sharp claw and crushed Black Elder’s palm attack.
Ah Da and Ah Er moved, one stationed in front and another at the back, surrounding Black Elder who was at the middle. He couldn’t aim his attack at Jiang Chen anymore since his life was now endangered.
“What are these things?”
After seeing the two dark soul kings, even Black Elder couldn’t help but be startled. He could feel an indescribable death Qi from Ah Da and Ah Er. These two were obviously undead. The decayed death Qi was very terrifying and very detrimental to humans. Once a person was wounded by a dark soul king, the death Qi would permeate into the body and the result would be unimaginable.
“What are those things? They seem very horrifying. They are of the Minor Saint grade. Why does Jiang Chen have them?”
“Very intense dark and death Qi. This is a non-living thing, a dark soul. Mother! How can this thing exist in the world? The harm they bring is too big. Even Black Elder may not be able to handle them. This is Jiang Chen’s trump card. Sword Ming and the lion’s death are definitely not accidental.”
“Why did the situation become like this? The Dark Shadow always have a thorough background of the target, but there is such a big inconsistency to Jiang Chen’s background. Dammit!”
Both the leader and the other assassins emotions completely changed when they saw the emergence of the dark souls. They initially thought that Black Elder could end Jiang Chen’s life in an instant, but they didn’t think that he would have such powerful backup. He actually summoned two strong dark soul kings that completely blocked Black Elder.
This meant they would have to face Jiang Chen again. They were afraid that they would die here.
“Ah Da, Ah Er, kill him.”
He gave the order to kill without even turning his head to Black Elder.
After Ah Da and Ah Er were edified, they obeyed Jiang Chen without a single opposition or refusal. If Jiang Chen wanted them to kill a man, they wouldn’t have any hesitation. The two powerful dark soul kings let out unpleasant howls, the ghostly fire in their eyes were circulating, lunging at Black Elder. They were the true master of the darkness, and their movements seemed untraceable—like true ghosts.
Black Elder didn’t dare to make any mistakes. He fully unleashed his sphere of energy, using it to confront Ah Da and Ah Er. The huge sphere of energy shrouded Ah Da and Ah Er.
Nonetheless—in front of the two powerful beings—the sphere of energy was useless. This sphere of energy could suppress the other’s Yuan Force, but Ah Da and Ah Er were dark soul and were undead which didn’t even have a wave of Yuan Force. They only have the bodies’ speed and strength.
Ah Da and Ah Er were too ferocious. Their sharp claws shredded Black Elder’s sphere of energy apart. Black Elder had just reached the Minor Saint grade not long ago, so he was not very familiar with the sphere of energy yet. His current situation was one versus two, and thus some of his weaknesses were starting to show.
Black Elder bellowed. His body glowed. He struck two palm seals instantly. This was a violent combat technique. It lunged at Ah Da and Ah Er, but they showed no signs of fear. They were like a naturally-born killing machine, ignoring their lives in combat.
Heaven and earth shook. The battle of the three Minor Saints had totally ruined the manor. All the buildings here collapsed and turned into wreckage. A big and deep pit appeared at the center while black smoke was rustling and billowing to the sky.
*Deng* *Deng* *Deng*
After his bout with Ah Da and Ah Er, Black Elder trembled and staggered over ten steps backwards before finding his balance. He felt an overwhelming anguish that couldn’t be described in curses. His eyes were spurting out fire. Although these two dark souls didn’t contain Yuan Force, their death Qis were too terrifying. It had severely affected his power. If it was only a dark soul, Black Elder would still be able to handle it, but he was helpless against two of them. Furthermore, these two huge dark souls were nimble and fast, and their attacks were sharp and precise. Every part of their body were like a weapon that can clash with any ordinary Minor Saint weapon, it was truly terrifying.
“Junior Jiang, bringing these two dark soul kings is definitely similar to bringing two sharp weapons.”
Guo Shao Fei sighed. Without Ah Da and Ah Er’s existence, Jiang Chen would absolutely wouldn’t dare to attack the Dark Shadow’s stronghold.
“What are you getting stunned there for? Kill!”
Jiang Chen turned to his three friends who were standing rooted to the ground and clamored.
They regained their senses and charged at the assassins. Since their enemy’s Minor Saint was blocked by Jiang Chen’s dark souls, there weren’t any one who could do them any harm.
Wails resounded throughout the area, men were thrown off their feet. The assassins who were initially in shock felt disheartened after seeing Black Elder being controlled by the dark souls. How could they be the opponents of Big Yellow and the other intruders? A few of them were killed in a few moments.
On the other side, another Ninth Grade Combat Emperor died under Jiang Chen’s sword. Until now, four Ninth Grade Combat Emperors were already dead. One of the remaining two was the middle-aged leader. Their faces turned very ugly. In their eyes, Jiang Chen was a grim reaper. When they looked at the sword in his hand, they could feel their souls getting chills.
“Everyone, listen! Leave this place now!”
When Black Elder realized the severity of the situation, he shouted quickly to the assassins. He was in no position to rescue them. If the battle continues, all of them would die. Dark Shadow spent considerable amount of resources to nurture and train each assassin. One casualty was akin to a huge loss to them. They couldn’t afford to have them be all killed here.
They were all Combat Emperor assassins, and thus they were very skilled at fleeing. Even if they couldn’t continue to fight, they had no problems escaping. Once they escaped, these few wild intruders would receive the mad revenge from Dark Shadow after today. By that time, there wouldn’t be any place that they could stay. No matter where they went, be it the skies or ground—they would still die.
The leader shouted. The stronghold of Moon Pavilion was built using many years of bitter effort. He never thought they will fail so miserably that they had to run away from here. To him, it was a very great humiliation. If they didn’t run, the only thing that awaited them was death. All of them would die since Jiang Chen didn’t intend to show any mercy.
*Swoosh* *Swoosh* *Swoosh*
As their leader’s voice dropped, all assassins flew towards the outside of the manor. Many had entered into a spatial zone. There were quite many of them. If they all left at the same time then Big Yellow and the others couldn’t stop them, but fortunately, they were prepared for this.
*Peng* *Peng* *Peng*
The assassins were bounced back by the blanketing sky formation set up by Jiang Chen and Big Yellow.
“What happened? Why can’t we go out?”
“Mother! This entire place was locked. This was a profound big formation. Force can’t be used to break it open. Damn!”
The assassins were in complete despair. They thought of running away when they were no longer capable of defeating their enemies, but they didn’t think they would face problems while escaping.
“Jiang Chen, what have you done?”
The leader was also bounced back. He yelled at Jiang Chen. Presently, Jiang Chen had just killed the fifth Ninth Grade Combat Emperor.
“The entire manor is already locked down by my big formation. You all have become sheeps waiting to be executed. All of you will have to die today. None should leave this place alive. It is your misfortune to have offended me. After today, I am your nightmare. Today is the day your stronghold gets decimated and the next will be your headquarters. I will completely wipe out Dark Shadow from the Divine Continent.”
Jiang Chen’s Qi erupted. While he was talking, he approached the leader. The Heavenly Saint Sword ruthlessly stabbed through his body. Under the hopeless gaze of the leader, a wave of destructive energy shot out of the sword, destroying all his internal organs—ending his life.
Jiang Chen slowly pulled out his long sword and lunged at another assassin.
Black Elder’s eyes were fiery red. His rage burnt up to his forehead and temple upon seeing the people of Dark Shadow dying one after another. He was tightly trapped by Ah Da and Ah Er, and was totally powerless to save the other assassins. He could only watch them die under the hands of his enemies.
*Argh* *Argh* *Argh*
All the Ninth Grade Combat Emperor were eliminated. The remaining assassins were akin to sheep. How could they stand the attack of four ferocious tigers? Jiang Chen joined them, speeding up the process of eliminating the assassins. After two minutes, all assassins were wiped out. In the entire manor, besides Black Elder, there wasn’t anyone who was alive. There were corpses everywhere. Blood stained the ground of the manor. The manor had turned into ruins making the place a real Asura Hell.
