Chapter 810: An enemy attack
Translator: Exodus Tales Editor: Exodus Tales
This is a unique origin technique.
Turning energy into a pair of wings, allowing one to have the ability to soar into the sky and fly. In theory, one should be able to master it after reaching the peak professional realm, having grasped one’s talent ability to the extreme. In the professional realm, it’s a benchmark to differentiate talented espers from others.
Energy wings is a special origin technique because, in theory, everyone can master it.
Some even consider it as a universal origin technique, but the strange thing is that the method to master energy wings for each ability talent is different. After all, to create the energy wings from different kinds of talents is much harder than for an energy weapon because of the ability talent.
The existence of energy wings has the highest success rate in elemental type talents such as lightning, fire, water, or even metal elements like steel! However, for Su Hao’s physical talent or even his previous analysis type talent, nothing could be done.
Thus, no matter how many people step into the domain realm, it is extremely rare to master the energy wings.
“I don’t know it.” Su Hao replied without hesitation.
If it’s Zhou Wang, then there wouldn’t be any problem. As for Chen Yiran, she could create an ice bird, transporting everyone. Previously, Su Hao would be embarrassed to say he couldn’t master the energy wings, but with his current physical talent, he could proudly say he didn’t master it.
Xie Te nodded. He obviously understood Su Hao’s talent.
The rest also voiced out. Su Hao was a little surprised to find out there were actually two who mastered energy wings among the ten people! Although the number of espers mastering the energy wing is low, he had to admit he admires the might of elemental type talents as they are over 90% of ability talents.
When the number is high, even the chances of it being low isn’t an issue.
“Great.” Xie Te was very satisfied, “With energy wings, we can relax.”
The others were puzzled.
“Soon, you will all know.” Xie Te just smiled.
After a few hours, the aircraft finally landed. When Xie Te finished the procedures and took everyone to the warehouse to collect it, they finally knew why they had to walk back.
This was the first impression everyone had of the items.
Appearing in front of them was a warehouse with an extremely high ceiling, even bigger than the aircraft. The top of the warehouse was full of runes and imprints. If not for the present light, all the strange lines surrounding them would look terrifying.
“Here, this is our goal.”
Everyone was stupefied, “These are Nitai artifacts?!”
“Of course.” Xie Te waved his hands, “Nitai artifacts, you all are aware that there are small and big ones. With over three hundred of them, to store them together isn’t easy. Not to mention, in order to prevent energy fluctuations, at least ten layers of energy shields are needed to prevent any leakage.”
Su Hao nodded silently.
Previously, he had seen it once in the ruins. A Nitai artifact like the cloak is considered quite good. Compared to the two-meter long hammer and five-meter-high Maitreya Buddha statue, these over 300 artifacts are already quite conservative in his opinion.
Everyone showed a bitter face.
Before this, they felt that the warning from their captain that their journey back might be dangerous was strange. After all, with their strength, if they wish to leave quietly, who would have noticed it? However, when they saw the sheer amount of Nitai artifacts, which could fill the entire warehouse, they finally understood.
Such big cargo… it’s hard to be undetected!
How many places did they have to pass on the way back?
How many days would their journey take?
To carry such a scale back, this is simply screaming at everyone to fire at them. Any ordinary man wouldn’t like this.
Plus, what time period is it now?
The time when all forces dispatched their investigation everywhere!
Can they even return quietly?
“Therefore, we need energy wings.” Xie Te pointed at those two espers, “We will be a huge target on land. If you two fly below the clouds, our risks would be smaller.”
Everyone’s eyes lit up.
It turned out to be like that.
“Why can’t we ship them back separately?” Su Hao’s eyes twitched, “Although there are too many Nitai artifacts here, if each of us takes a few pieces back or even wears them, wouldn’t that be easier?”
When everyone thought about it, they nodded in agreement.
“In theory, that should be the case.” Xie Te nodded and then continued, “However, Nitai artifacts won’t have any power if no cultivation is done. If you bring them directly, you won’t be able to use much of their capability. Plus, it’s more cumbersome. Can you imagine, what can those espers see when your body is full of ownerless Nitai artifacts?”
When they imagined it, they had cold sweats.
Asking themselves, if they’re outside when they see some espers daring to carry an uncultivated Nitai artifact with them, their first reaction would be to follow them! Their second reaction would be to evaluate their strength. If the opposing side has a number of Nitai artifacts…
Don’t hesitate, quickly go and snatch one!
If you can’t win, call more men for backup!
“Then, what if we go back with the aircraft?” Someone raised his hand with no confidence.
“Cough, cough.” Xie Te coughed for a second, “When an aircraft flies, it must receive the Origin Ability Association’s radar detection. Once many Nitai artifacts are discovered, we have to register them. Of course, with the Tian family’s identity, we can have some privileges. However, with such an amount of Nitai artifacts…”
Xie Te pointed at the behemoth in front of them, shutting everyone’s mouth.
A total of 386 Nitai artifacts, if the Origin Ability Association were to discover it, how could they explain it? It would be a battle to fight it out at once!
After the mission was clearly explained, everyone then left Dream City.
A giant cloth covered the Nitai artifacts.
Below it was even a shelf to hold it, one at the front and one behind, an absolute domain esper assisted with his energy wings. Then everyone suddenly took off.
The crowd disappeared.
If one doesn’t look carefully, who would have noticed where they are?
“See.” Xie Te calmly said, “Our mission is still going smoothly.”
Everyone stood on top of the Nitai artifacts, watching those two absolute domain espers carrying them like slaves. If it is like this, it can be considered quite smooth.
“When they don’t have sufficient energy, you will all help with this issue.” Xie Te continued, “Based on this speed, we can go back in a day if there is no mishap during our journey…”
If one looked at it like this, this mission could be considered easy, right?
Su Hao looked at that person who he had marked since the start. He was so eager to take action. After that person pressed something on his communication device, his face showed a strange color and looked at Xie Te in surprise, “Captain, I can’t send my message to my family. Could it be that we have been discovered by the enemy?”
Everyone was shocked and looked at their own communication device.
“Nope.” Xie Te sneered, “In order to prevent people from disclosing information, the moment this mission started, all signals were blocked. Only I can contact the outside world.”
“Nothing will happen without communication for a day.” Xie Te coldly glanced at that person, “Of course, if you insist, I can help you in sending messages to your family.”
“It’s alright.” That man just smiled awkwardly, “I just miss my wife.”
Everyone laughed it off.
Su Hao felt a bit strange. Since the signal would be blocked during the mission, the enemy should be aware of it too. If this is the case, does that mean that the moment when the signal is lost, the mission has already begun? If that person has something on his body…
This strategic mission is indeed not simple.
Su Hao shrugged his shoulders. Strength confrontation is just one aspect. When men from their own side backstab one another, that’s the worst. If so, then this calm water is about to get chaotic soon.
As expected, everyone talked and laughed among themselves. The mission seemed to be very relaxing. Up until midnight, when the night fell, a dazzling light flashed.
Above Team F, a golden halo suddenly emerged. Their speed suddenly slowed down as if they’re moving within mud.
“Enemy!” Xie Te was the first one to react and activated his defensive technique. However, it was useless. The golden halo seemed to be completely unconstrained by any power.
The others weren’t slow in reacting either. Those two espers with energy wings were desperately moving with the Nitai artifacts, but it was a futile attempt! Under the golden halo, they couldn’t move at all in the sky. In the end, they could only fall and landed on the ground in a hard fashion.
As the Nitai artifacts landed, a huge sound echoed.
Before they see the enemy, they were forced to land!
In an instant, everyone’s face turned ugly.
“You two, hold down your head.” Xie Te calmly ordered, “As for the others, prepare for battle!”
Su Hao and the others quickly entered into their battle state and watched the surroundings alertly. Above them, they could see a huge golden halo floating.
“Don’t worry about it.” Xie Te explained, “Such a powerful origin technique, it must be a special talent. Thus, it’s impossible to have strong combat strength.”
“Indeed, you’re worthy of being someone from the Tian family.” A cold voice could be heard before a group of people appeared surrounding Team F in an instant. The one who led was surprisingly a peak domain esper.
“Who are you guys?” Xie Te calmly asked.
Just that he didn’t notice that when Su Hao saw this person come out, Su Hao was stunned, how could it be him? Wasn’t this guy killed by me?
