With pale expressions, the warships that survived the calamity, watched the energy vortex wreak havoc. It was anextremely huge accident, but unfortunately, what awaited them next was Master Gou Cheng WenDao’s fury. Hewas famed for being harsh and cold, so how many people would die under his wrath?
Everyone sunk into fear, and many of them even started crying.
The fleet’s tight exterior defense and lax interior was a fixed plan, but the sudden movement of the energy vortexmade them helpless. But the real reason for the immense destruction was because the warships were docked tooclose to each other, and the panic due to the sudden change of situation. The energy vortex’s destructive ability wasshocking, but its speed, compared to the warships, naturally paled in comparison. If the warships were not as tightlypacked, most of them would have avoided the danger.
The officers also could not be blamed, there was no problems with their positioning. The extremely terribleconditions of the Shang Continent was the true culprit. The Shang Continent was only a small and isolatedcontinent, it did not have the conditions for a large fleet to anchor.
The extremely narrow estuary posed a huge problem to majority of their warships, thus making them anchor in theSea of Energy near the estuary to Shang Continent. But the Sea of Energy around the estuary was also very limited.The gigantic energy vortex had taken up a huge part, and on the other side, laid the extremely dangerousUndercurrent Region.
The moment Gou Cheng WenDao took over the Shang Continent, he immediately conducted a thorough survey around the entire area, and even the Undercurrent Region nearby was investigated. The Undercurrent Region was an extremely dangerous place, where even the strongest fleet would have no chance of surviving if they fell in.
To prevent any accident, they had specially established a striking demarcation and marked out the UndercurrentRegion.
The surviving warships leaned towards the Undercurrent Region that were only a 150m away from the demarcationlines.
Inside the Undercurrent Region 150m away.
Crane opened his eyes, his faintly lit pupils were cold and sharp. By his side floated many bubbles
of light, and withinthem were people. All of them revealed traces of fatigue, as they had already stayed inside the undercurrent for afull five days.
Even with the protection of star treasures, staying inside the Undercurrent Region was an extreme test of willpowerand strength. Whether or not everyone could persevere inside the Undercurrent Region for five days, Crane did notknow either. But he had accepted the mission with determination, because he knew that it was the only opportunityto strike heavily at Gou Cheng WenDao’s fleet.
If Gou Cheng WenDao’s fleet was heavily injured, he would be face with unprecedented danger.
Inside the Shang Continent he had no defences or any fleet, Gou Cheng WenDao was like a soldier that lost hisarmor.
It was a crucial moment.
For five days, they maintained silence as no one spoke. They were too close to the enemies, if there were even a bitof movement, if they accidentally attracted the attention of their enemies, the whole plan would have gone towaste.
When they heard the rumblings outside, everyone who were already somewhat numb slowly opened their eyes,their stiff faces instantly becoming excited.
Jing Hao had made his move!
Everyone called their partners up, and warmed up their stiff and frozen bodies. To lessen the exhaustion, none ofthem moved for the entire duration.
But on every person’s face revealed excitement and agitation.
They had long settled their resolve to implement the plan, for they knew that if they were successful, the battle wasdefinitely worthy of becoming a legend! And the enemies were Honorable Martial Continent, as they had a deepflowing hatred with the Honorable Martial Continent, there was nothing as compelling as to use such a legendarymethod of striking at their mortal enemies!
Wei Ting TIng was equally agitated, but she looked to be much more experienced as compared to last time as shedrew the God Gold Arrow proficiently.
For the battle, The Southern Alliance had taken out all of the good stuff.
Crane did not give any orders, every detail had been thoroughly discussed multiple times before the battle, andeveryone knew what they had to do.
Looking at all the excited and agitated faces, Crane did not say anything, he unsheathed his sword and took the leadto rush to the border of the Undercurrent Region. Behind him, everyone else followed.
In that short burst, everyone’s vision lit up.
It was the warships that lit up their vision, they looked to be in a mess, without any proper formations. Occasionally,lights would blossom in the distance, which came from the beautiful background given by the energy vortex.
They looked like spirits that had suddenly appeared behind the fleet.
No one noticed them, as all the soldiers on the warships had their attention towards the energy vortex.
Crane had discussed with everyone regarding the formation to extreme details, deducing all sorts of situations andhow to respond accordingly. The situation in front of them did not exceed their deductions. They moved extremelycarefully and borrowed the shadows of the warships to sneak in closer.
Their main target was the large scale warships.
The members on the large scale warships were still in their frightened states, they had anxiously escaped and didnot activate their barriers. What could the barriers do? If they were pulled into the energy vortex, the barrier couldnot save them. As to sneak attacks, they were under so much pressure that they never thought that it could happen.
Crane and the rest carefully snuck beneath the warships. The large size of the warships projected dark and hugeshadows that gave them the best cover and concealment.
After placing a star treasure at the bottom of the boat, they immediately distanced themselves. According to LittleFool’s estimation, they needed to rush 3km away before it detonated.
This was their secret weapon, Star Treasure Bombs!
They had planned out their battle plan, and had chosen the large scale warships as their main target, when everyonesuddenly realized that they had overlooked one problem, how could they destroy the large scale warships?
Large scale warships had extremely sturdy hulls and body, and ordinary attacks were incapable of destroying them.They had used the warship remnants in the belt for cover, and knew how sturdy they were. Thus, destroying thelarge scale warships became the biggest problem they had to face.
And the one who resolved this problem was Little Fool.
Little Fool who was about to go crazy from being forced to refine treasures was on the border of going psychotic.Everytime, Bing would sigh with emotions and compliment him as a good boy, then continued to exploit him.
With his Spirit Devouring Flame as the detonator, he could cause treasures to explode, thus naming them StarTreasure Bombs. It produced an astonishing effect that made it the best weapons to handle the large scale warships.For the fight, the Southern Alliance handed out all of their remaining treasures.
The treasure suddenly emitted a strand of flame, which was the Spirit Devouring Flame, and the treasure instantlylit up, and started absorbing the energy around it frantically.
The light aura emitted from the treasure rapidly became brighter and brighter.
The intense energy undulation immediately alarmed the members on board.
“Barrier protection! Quickly activate the barriers!”
“Spread out! Everyone spread out!”
The shrieks and screams came out as the fleet who had just managed to calm down plunged into chaos once more.
Right at that moment, dazzling light regiments suddenly appeared outside of their windows, the eye dazzling lightauras caused the entire place to be lit up, and no one could see anything. A gigantic rumble caused everyone tobecome temporarily deaf. Everyone were stupefied as their minds went blank.
Before they could even make any reaction, the hull beneath their feet trembled, they had not even done anypreparations when they were all flung upwards and smashed onto the walls and ceilings.
All of them woke up from the intense pain.
They frantically crawled back up and looked towards the direction of the explosion, but when they saw what it wasclearly, they were all stunned.
It was Master Gou Cheng WenDao’s ship!
Gou Cheng WenDao’s warship was the most extravagant, sturdiest, strongest in terms of offensive capabilities, and the most heavily protected warship, and what remained was a half charred wreckage, with intense flames still spewing out from the ship that continued to blaze. The warships around it were all affected, also appearing to have sustained heavy damages.
Everyone were stunned, how could a large scale warship be so weak?
No one had thought that it was just the beginning.
The terrifying light aura came again, this time, it was even more intense, and the experienced members knew thatthe attack was coming from a few places at once. Their minds were a blank, as though they had been heavilypunched in the head, the large scale warships, the other large scale warships!
One after another, light regiments blossomed from within the fleet, all of the large scale warships were devoured bythe white light.
One of the large scale warships was devoured by the light aura, and a spherical shockwave instantly spread out. Inthe face of this shockwave, all of the nearby warships were blown apart into pieces like paper.
Wei Ting Ting and the rest were shocked by the power of the star treasure bombs.
All of them stared with their mouths wide opened, as though their jaws were locked. Now they finally understoodwhy they had to run 3km away before the detonation. Seeing the warships being struck by the shockwave, theyknew that if they remained in the area of impact, what would be left would be a pile of minced meat.
After the fear, they quickly became excited.
The Star Treasure Bombs were too effective, far more than what they had expected, meaning that they had alreadyaccomplished the lowest requirement of their goal. The destruction of the large scale warships meant that the fleethad lost more than half of their fighting strength.
Furthermore, the fight was not over!
Wei Ting Ting and the group were the first to react, and immediately launched an attack at the middle scalewarships.
The Gold God Arrow did not have much use towards the large scale warships, but towards the middle scalewarships, they were able to deal substantial damage. As for how to deal with warships, Wei Ting Ting and the resthad long gotten the knack for it. Furthermore, in the complicated terrain, there was not much difference from beingin the belt of wreckages.
They moved like fish in water, destroying the warships and taking lives.
Their attacks were extremely ferocious as they did not hold back.
One after another of flames blossomed out like flowers inside the fleet of warships. The battle was too sudden andfearsome, the Honorable Martial Continent fleet that had no time to prepare lost terribly.
Wei Ting Ting shot out the last Gold God Arrow. Upon leaving the bow, it transformed into a flow of light, like ashooting star, smashing straight into a middle scale warship.
A dazzling regiment of flames blossomed from the middle of the warship.
The warship split apart.
Wei Ting Ting bit her lips, she had overused her hands and they were trembling. But her expression was one ofdissatisfaction, if given enough time……
But after staying inside the Undercurrent Region for five days, they had exhausted their physical strength, and theremaining strength was only enough for them to launch one wave of intense attacks.
A clear Crane Cry sounded out across the entire battlefield, even among the explosions, it was audible.
The sound of retreat!
Wei Ting Ting clenched her teeth, without hesitating, she gathered the rest of her strength and rushed forward.
Inside the battlefield where regiments of flames lit the place, many black dots flew out, and like birds returning totheir nesting place, they rushed towards the energy vortex.
“Are they trying to die?”
The remaining soldiers on the warships stared blankly at the suicidal movements of the group.
But after that, the unthinkable happened.
The energy vortex revealed a large gap of roughly 1km, and the enemies that were leaving the battlefield, rushedinto it. When the last person flew in, the gap closed up again.
~The energy vortex…..was actually being controlled by the enemy…..~
Countless of people woke up from their daze, all of them hugged their heads with their hands as though they hadseen ghosts.
“Damn it! It’s coming towards us!”
A shout once again caused the atmosphere to become anxious.
