Well, maybe ‘jumping’ back is too generous . As it was more like being blown away .
In order to maintain my posture, I had to fly backward and allow the impact to escape .
It had been a while since I fought someone this strong . I felt my blood growing hot .
At the same time that the man moved towards me, the other five moved as well .
Shia, Serulis, and Grulf rushed passed him .
And then the man moved so that Eric, Goran, Kathe and Shia’s attacks would not reach him .
He had likely decided that he would be at a great disadvantage if we all attacked him at once .
And so he flew back in order to create some distance between us .
At the same time, he swung his sword towards Shia and Serulis, who were also headed to the back .
Perhaps he was thinking about getting rid of the weaker ones first .
I had sent Shia, Serulis, and Grulf on ahead in order to save the humans .
And so I couldn’t allow the man to attack them .
I sent magic throughout my body, strengthening it as I rushed forward .
“It’s rude to get distracted during a fight, you bastard slug!”
My Devil King Sword struck at him three times, and he blocked each attack without breaking a sweat .
I had put so much power into each swing, and yet it wasn’t enough .
‘Leave him to us . Continue on with the mission!’
Goran shouted to Shia and Serulis through Telepathy .
Thanks to this, Serulis, who had frozen for a second, began to run again .
The man watched them run away and said,
“What are you planning? Foolish human…”
He was probably going to say such plans wouldn’t work on him . But he didn’t get to finish . This was because Goran had attacked .
“Didn’t Locke just tell you that it’s rude to look away?”
Goran’s attacks were sharp and strong . It quickly forced the enemy to fight defensively .
And Goran’s momentum did not end . Eventually, the man was not able to defend against every blow . His sword fell out of his hand and he broke his posture .
And then, at that moment where Goran was about to deal the final blow…
“You arrogant human!”
The man shouted . And then a poisonous mist flowed from his body .
The poison mist seemed very strong . Perhaps it would kill you if you breathed it in even once .
But even if you held your breath, it would enter through your eyes or nose . With enough time, it would slow down your movements .
Goran detected this instinctively and quickly flew back .
“Damn, you stink . You should take a bath!”
“Silence! You scum!”
The man shouted as he tried to attack Goran . But…
Kathe roared and unleashed her wind breath, which slammed into the man .
He was blown all the way to the wall . And most of the poison escaped out of the room from the giant broken windows .
Eric spoke through Telepathy .
‘Poisonous mist, huh . Dangerous . ’
‘Yeah . But now we know he can do it . I’ll deal with it next time . ’
‘I see . Then we’ll let you take care of it, Locke . ’
I now understood what kind of magic he used to exude the poisonous mist from his body .
But this was only something you could do if you were a high-ranking vampire .
‘I won’t be able to learn it . ’
That being said, I didn’t need to learn to do it in order to deal with it .
‘It looks disgusting, so it’s probably better if you can’t use it . ’
Eric said . Then he raised his holy sword and charged towards the man head-on .
He was moving like this in order to draw his attention .
As Goran understood this, he moved more subtly as he went around to the man’s side .
As the party Sorcerer, I had to support Eric and Goran .
And so I shot Magic Lances at the man .
One or two wouldn’t even register as a distraction . And so I created 70 Magic Lances and launched them all at once .
I continued to make more after that, and shot them into the man .
It was clear by his expression that he had lost his cool . He started to frantically bring up magic barriers .
Then my Magic Lances hit them, and the man screamed .
The magic barriers shattered, and he quickly put up more .
His speed was quite incredible .
The sounds of barriers shattering echoed in the room .
As the man continued to work desperately, Eric charged at him .
Eric paid my Magic Lances no mind . It was as if they weren’t even there .
This was because he was confident that they wouldn’t hit him .
He believed that I would deal with it .
And so to meet his expectations, I adjusted their trajectory so they wouldn’t hit him .
“That’s it, Locke!”
Eric said happily as he closed in on the man and slashed with his sword .
Eric’s holy swords easily cut through the man’s barriers .
In order to protect himself, he made even more barriers . But these were thinner than before .
It was a great opportunity . And so I slammed another volley of Magic Lances at him .
