“There, there, that scared me . How fierce!” Napier stuck out his tongue . “That used up a lot of energy . My god, that used up ten energy crystals worth over twenty thousand Holy Coins . All that money gone just like that!”
“How many pieces are left?”
“Thirteen pieces . ” Napier took out the empty energy crystals from the horse cannon .
“Save them . ” Mu Zi had recovered from his shock and glared in the direction of the city gate . Although the tauren soldiers that had gathered were dispersed, that was only the first wave of enemies . The true war was just about to begin .
“I got it!” Napier was excited . This was a very powerful weapon . Although it burned so much money that it gave him a headache, it was very satisfying to use it to attack . It was just a pity that they did not have an endless supply of resources . Furthermore, with that full-strength attack, the lifespan of the horse cannon was also shortened . At that moment, the body of the cannon was scalding, to the point that Napier almost could not continue to hold on to it .
The horse cannon had to recover after such a high-energy attack . Even a high-quality weapon needed a cooldown period, lest it exploded . Mu Zi would have to rely on his own strength .
The enemy would not give you time to breathe .
The south gate had been destroyed, and over half of the soldiers had been injured . This exceeded the estimates that the Shadow Moon Fortress had expected . The guards rang the ear-piercing alarm without any hesitation . The alarm reverberated above the Shadow Moon Fortress . It was a level-one combat alert that called for the other guards to provide support . The first ones to arrive were the griffin legions in the air . They had been rushing over but finally appeared in Mu Zi and Napier’s field of vision over ten seconds after the south gate had collapsed .
The Octopus people soldiers and the tauren soldiers riding the griffins were different . There were strong and weak tauren soldiers, but all the Octopus people in the griffin legion were the top elites who were at least Great Swordsmen . The moment they appeared, streaks of Sword Qi flew through the air, aimed straight at them .
“Brother Mu Zi, I’m counting on you!” Napier diligently dealt with the horse cannon and did his best to make preparations for the next attack on their opponents .
Mu Zi laughed and protected Napier behind him . The Life and Death Coffin in his hand was like a massive shield . He swept the coffin in front of him and immediately blocked the streaks of Sword Qi that flew at him .
“Kill!” In a flash, the seven or eight griffin riders in the vanguard had arrived within close-combat distance .
A griffin rider that was in the lead carried a giant sword in his hand and slashed downward . The Sword Qi that was produced was an indication that he was a Great Swordsman . When he raised his hand, it was as if he was preparing for a sword technique that could not be stopped . When he slashed the sword, not only was he extremely fast, he also locked on to Mu Zi and did not allow him to dodge . He was about to kill Mu Zi .
But this did not seem to have any effect on Mu Zi . He turned his body slightly and easily dodged the attack . Then, he twisted his hand and pulled on the tail of the griffin, causing the rider to spin 360 degrees!
The giant griffin that weighed two to three tonnes was like a chick in Mu Zi’s hands . It screamed in panic and was sent flying along with its rider . They continued to spin in the air . It felt as if the world was revolving all over the place, making it impossible for them to orientate themselves .
The riders behind were shocked and did not dare to advance by themselves . They moved slightly and formed a seven-man combined attack formation . Sword attacks started to rain from the sky . Among the rain of Sword Qi were assaults by the seven griffin riders . The griffin riders were like venomous snakes hiding among the wave of sword attacks, waiting to deliver a fatal blow .
There was nowhere to hide from the flood of attacks . Even Napier, who was hiding behind Mu Zi, was frightened . However, Mu Zi did not panic and stood where he was with no intention of moving . He did not do anything except move his eyes . Neither the misleading Sword Qi or the hidden fatal attacks could escape him .
What shocking abilities! Kill him! All seven griffin riders had the same thought, but when the flood of attacks reached the human, the human finally moved .
He simply threw the massive Life and Death Coffin into the air .
Bang Bang Bang Bang Bang Bang Bang!
There were seven explosions . Not only had the attacks from the seven griffin riders been stopped, all their swords were also destroyed . The Mizobudapi people had developed a unique civilization centered around the sword . One could imagine how important the sword was to them, especially at the ranks of Great Swordsman and above . The swords in their hands were unique treasures that could cut through iron as if it were mud . However, when their swords touched the Life and Death Coffin, it was as if they were weak ice crystals that had crashed into a sharp rock . They instantly broke into pieces without leaving even a mark on the Life and Death Coffin!
At the same time, when the Life and Death Coffin was hurled into the air, it was as if a massive mountain was sweeping past, sending the seven riders and their griffins flying . They vomited blood as they were launched dozens of kilometers away .
A single strike to fell all strikes!
Mu Zi was generally not adept in close combat, but it also depended on who his opponent was . If he were to fight Aiolos at close quarters, Mu Zi would be no match for him .
There were still a few griffin riders in the sky, but when they saw Mu Zi’s power, they could not help but gasp in astonishment . They stopped their griffins and did not dare to advance, leaving them hovering in mid-air . This human was far too powerful and was very strong at combat . The box in his hand was like a mountain . They should leave a barbarian to deal with a barbarian .
Not only were the griffin riders shocked, even Napier, who was dealing with the horse cannon behind, was also stunned . He could not help but laugh out loud as his confidence immediately swelled . He had always thought that Mu Zi was a Warlock as he had used his death aura to protect and conceal them . Although there had been a battle in the city, Napier had never personally seen Mu Zi use his techniques in a battle . Even if Napier was beaten to death, he would never have believed that this small and thin Tutankhamun man could fight as fiercely as a demon! No wonder Wang Zhong was willing to let him and Napier directly attack their enemies . No wonder Wang Zhong said that no one in the Shadow Moon Fortress would be able to stop Mu Zi except for the Warlock Saint . Mu Zi was amazing . Wouldn’t you be afraid of a Warlock who could also engage in close combat?
The griffin riders were hesitant to move forward and sounded their war horns . After some delay, a new wave of tauren soldiers had taken their positions outside the city gate .
Although they had called for help, the other gates were too far from the south gate . Other than the griffin riders in the sky, who could quickly fly over and take their positions, support troops from the other directions would need time to arrive . Thus, this wave of tauren soldiers had rushed over from the campsites near the south gate . The Shadow Moon Fortress had a complete army system where only the city lord had the authority to sound the level-1 combat alert . However, it could also be activated when a city gate had fallen . Once it was sounded, it was the highest level of alert . All the nearby tauren soldiers had to put down everything and immediately provide assistance . If not, it would be considered shirking their responsibility, and their entire family would be killed!
At that moment, the taurens had again gathered into their formations . Fifty taurens formed the vanguard . They protected the seven or eight Warlock Octopus people behind them who were in charge of empowering buffs and long-range assaults .
This formation fully displayed the strength of Heroic Souls . It was completely different from the formation that Mu Zi, Wang Zhong, and the rest had encountered in the alley . Firstly, when Wang Zhong attacked their weak points, their formation was in a mess even before they started to attack . That formation could not show its power . Furthermore, the narrow alley was not suitable for them to execute a group formation .
At that moment, Mu Zi and Napier could only hear: da da da da! Bang bang bang bang!
The neat and urgent steps sounded as if only one person was running . The chemistry among the entire formation was perfect . This was the special skill of all tauren soldiers . Even the coordination of their steps was perfect . They charged towards Mu Zi and Napier as an unstoppable force! The taurens were naturally adept at brutal attacks . With their formations and the protection of Warlocks, their attacking power was unparalleled . Even the ground started to tremble as they ran . They were a formation of over twenty people, but they were like one body, making it seem like the shadow of a massive wild cow was forming above them, threatening to brutally trample everything in front of them!
Following closely behind them were another four formations . Two to three hundred Mizobudapi charged wildly as they roared . They were going to turn these two courageous humans into dust!
This was definitely not a force that one person could withstand, unless that person was as strong as Aiolos .
Napier’s horse cannon had not cooled down fully, but Mu Zi did not choose to match up to the force charging at them . Instead, he placed the Life and Death Coffin in front of him . A dark light shone, and the door of the coffin opened, A gray smoke wafted out from the Life and Death Coffin and filled the surrounding air .
Wu wu wu wu wu wu…
Something was fishy!
The howls reverberated in the gray smoke . A cold wind blew past . Even the scorching sun was instantly blocked out by the spreading smoke, causing the sky to darken significantly .
The smoke instantly spread over a large area, covering a radius of a few hundred meters . The tauren soldiers had never seen this strange scene and were shocked . But since they had gotten into formation, they charged forward with confidence and gusto . Furthermore, once they charged in formation, their enemy would not be able to defeat them easily . They threw all concerns aside and ran into the smoke .
The first tauren to run into the smoke opened his eyes and saw an extremely pale face . The face was extremely terrifying . There were bloodstains on his glasses, nose, mouth, and ears . It opened its bloodshot eyes and flew over while screaming . It completely ignored the prowess of the formations . The tauren was very courageous and was not afraid . He subconsciously slashed at the face with the sword in his hand .
The sword missed and passed through the face of the ghost, leaving the ghost unharmed . The ghost surged forth and bit the tauren’s neck .
It was not a critical attack, but there was an instant numbing sensation . Blood flowed from the tauren’s neck and spread all over his body, paralyzing him . He shivered and froze where he was . His comrade, who had not fully understood what was happening, immediately rushed over and trampled over him .
His body was poisonous!
“It’s an energy body!”
“Physical attacks are useless!”
It was obvious that the Mizobudapi people were rather knowledgeable, but this knowledge was of no use . The taurens in the front suffered considerably . They shouted in shock, and their formation came to a stop . Everyone in front quickly stopped in their tracks and tried to escape from the smoke, but the formations behind them could not stop in time . They crashed into the taurens in front and were instantly thrown into confusion . Five groups of 100 taurens each had started off aggressively, but at that moment, the surroundings were filled with mournful wails and angry cursing .
“Damn…” Napier suddenly felt frustrated . Even the horse cannon was trash . Was he really needed here? Mu Zi could deal with this by himself, right? Mu Zi was far too fierce! Not only could he fight at close quarters like a demon, he could even execute a terrifying large-scale attack . He was invincible! Where had Wang Zhong met him? In hell?!
“Prepare the horse cannon!” Mu Zi was not relaxed as he prompted Napier . Although this group attack was very useful, the defenses and vitality of the taurens were terrifying, and he could not use this attack to efficiently kill them . Furthermore, the taurens were beings with high intelligence and many abilities . Once they recovered from their shock, they might be able to uncover the secret behind this attack . Furthermore, sustaining this attack would exhaust Mu Zi greatly . He could not continue this forever .
As expected, the moment he finished his sentence, he heard explosions from the city wall .
The explosions had come from the heavy artillery used by the Mizobudapi people . Previously, before they entered the city, they had seen the cannons placed on the city walls in the distance . They had a strange shape, unlike the straight cannons that humans used . Instead, their cannons were like strange jars that emitted a green light and could even wriggle .
Several green balls of energy were launched into the air like projectiles, forming perfect arcs in the sky . They accurately landed in Mu Zi’s smoke .
Bang Bang Bang!
There were several explosions among the smoke . The resentful and shrill howls of the ghosts could be heard . The areas of the smoke that had been struck were instantly cleared . Mu Zi’s body swayed, and his face turned slightly pale . This attack seemed to have some purification effects . The smoke that he controlled was connected to his Soul Power and spirit . When the smoke was damaged, his body and spirit would be injured as well . He continued to open the Life and Death Coffin and released even more smoke to replenish the existing smoke and allow the ghosts to recover from their injuries; this was to maintain a powerful combat level to draw out his target .
Luckily, the horse cannon had caused most of the city wall to collapse . Many jar cannons had fallen or were trapped among the debris . The few jar cannons left would not be able to completely break through Mu Zi’s smoke . However, although they were small in number, they recharged very quickly .
In an instant, several green jar cannons had lit up once again, causing the city wall to emit a dazzling green light . When the Octopus people on the city wall saw that this was effective, they were very excited . At the same time, Napier’s horse cannon had fully cooled down .
“Attack their jar cannons!”
“Got it!” Even without Mu Zi’s prompt, Napier could see what was happening . He had already positioned the horse cannon to aim at a jar cannon, which was quickly accumulating energy on the city wall .
