“Use a cloth to cover the ignition lines of the Dragon Crystal Cannons and God Dragon Cannons, don’t let them get wet. Quick, send my orders. Don’t be late!” Yan Zhao Warrior ordered.
A few War Hawk Knights flew up and went to give the orders. The nearby Royal Army found things that could block the rain. The army had cloth to build tents but not many of them as many were destroyed in battle. Now there was an even more lack of it so many soldiers took off their armor or used their shields to cover the cannons and then fought bare-armed.
“Archers, prepare to blind their eyes!” I held Butterfly and ordered.
War drums sounded and rain started to fall. In the veil, a dense group of Aotian Race troops returned. Their war drum sounds became even dense. They were waiting for this chance to attack.
We had to block this attack or we would be finished.
My heart felt cold and I said loudly, “Prepare to fight!”
“Peng peng peng…”
God Dragon Cannons and Dragon Crystal Cannons could still fire. Aotian Race had underestimated our intelligence and probably didn’t guess our plan.
“Defend the gates!”
One Second Hero jumped off the walls. More and more Zhan long and Royal Army cavalries headed out of the city and formed a defensive line outside. Some people had to sacrifice or the walls would be attacked right away.
“Be careful of their beast cavalries!” Lin Wan Er said loudly.
Heavy hooves could be heard. As expected, hundreds of beast cavalries charged. They were really quick. The Royal Army Dragon Crystal Cannons found it hard to aim at them and it was difficult to insta kill them. As a result, this group reached the walls close and clashed with the players.
I pulled out my swords and charged down. I attacked one of them like a meteor!
I shouldered the nose of the beast and it cried out as it retreated. But the Aotian Race cavalier was tough, thrusting the spear through the rain and at my chest!
I used Star Shield to knock him back and then I used Double Hit to force him further back. One Second Hero led dozens of Zhan Long players to kill him as I charged at the second one. I used my body to reduce his momentum and then I charged at the third one. In a blink, I bumped into dozens of them to help reduce the pressure of the players behind but now I was left with only a third of my health.
Not far away, an orange light shone. It was Wan Er’s large scale Buff. Li Mu raised his sword and roared too, helping to greatly increase the Attack of players within 400 yards. Q-Sword and Jian Feng Han headed down the walls and each of them had their own role. They had to fight with us or the walls would definitely break.
In less than half an hour, blood flowed like a river. Rainwater and blood mixed and flowed around, dying the dry grass and also dyeing the armor of everyone.
Royal Army rather died than retreat, using their lives as the price to kill the beast cavalries. The chefs even headed out with their blades and they started to slice up the corpses of a beast. This beast was like a mountain and could provide a large amount of meat.
A lieutenant ranked beast cavalry saw someone slicing up the corpse of the beast and shouted, “Kill them!”
A bunch of Aotian Race soldiers tossed their spears and the chefs were hit.
Everyone didn’t have time to think so much and the only thing we could do was to kill the enemy in front of us.
At that moment, Jing Yin said, “Your Highness, the west gate is broken…”
I was stunned. Q-Sword showed pictures and the entire west gate was shattered. Many Aotian Race soldiers charged in and were attacking with their blades. At least a thousand Aotian Race troops had entered the city and no one could stop them. Ghost City was lost and things were far quicker than I had thought!
I pierced the beck of the Aotian Race soldier in front of me and kicked his corpse aside. I flew backward and said, “Uncle Yan Zhao, bring people to block the breach!”
Yan Zhao Warrior activated God Form and gathered 20 thousand Changfeng Army troops along with some Prague players before heading towards the west gate. But they definitely would not be able to hold on, they would at most be able to delay a little.
More and more humans died and the walls were getting more and more damaged. A beast cavalry even smashed 50 meters of wall and they started to aim at that place. Furnace God Cavalries blocked this area to defend and it was really intense.
A message came from Fang Ge Que, “Xiao Yao good news!”
“What news Old Fang?”
“Frost brought a few god grade experts over and wants to use god power to force open the barrier but it will take an hour. They will begin in an hour. 1 hour later bring everyone to where you came from, we will wait for you here. Time is of the essence, we can’t enter and you probably can’t come out.”
“Countdown for me!”
A countdown timer shared by a friend appeared on the interface and it started to countdown from 59:59.
At that moment, Lin Qiong appeared with his sword and he said, “Your Highness, we found where their war emperor is at. He is north but there are 20 thousand Aotian Race soldiers protecting him, what should we do?”
I had made my mind up, “Open the east gate, everyone charge out. Split into two. Lin Qiong you lead the Royal Army, Heaven Barrier Army, Changfeng Army, Autumn Harvest Army and Guards Army. Head back with Situ Xin from the west side to where we came from… En, I will let The Executor lead the way!”
I sent a message to Yan Zhao for him to lead the NPCs to break through.
Yan Zhao was anxious, “No, if I flee with the NPCs, what about all of you?”
I, “No worries, if we die we will lose a level. Lead the NPCs back and it will be a huge war against them. We need these NPCs. Uncle don’t say anything, just bring the NPCs back. I will bring the players to sneak attack the war emperor!”
“Are you crazy? Sneak attack the Aotian War Emperor?”
“If not how can we draw more of them to allow you to break through? Stop the nonsense, head to the west gate to gather with Lin Qiong and Situ Xin.”
I ordered and all the players started to gather towards the north gate. Not long later, 40 thousand players appeared in the north. These were all elites. 500 thousand of us entered and only this bit of us was left. It looked really sad.
But when they learned of our final quest, everyone was excited.
Li Mu was smiling wide, “Damn, we have been trapped for so long, I really want to see what this war emperor is like!”
Drunken Spear said, “Nothing to say, kill him!”
Everyone raised their weapons and cursed, “Kill his mother!”
Everyone was frustrated.
I activated God Form and stood in front of everyone, “If they block us don’t bother, use our movement to move around. Head toward their main troops. If we can kill him then it is for the best, we most probably can’t. But we need to delay for an hour, we need the 200 thousand NPCs to retreat.”
40 thousand people flooded towards the north and a dense group of them were waiting for us with giant weapons which killed many players. But more of them headed through the gaps.
Rain soaked our bodies and it felt a little cold.
More and more Aotian Race troops appeared. Wan Er on my left, Mocha on my right and we formed Zhan Long’s strongest blade. From afar we could see a red flag in the rain.
“Aotian War Emperor!”
Wan Er squinted her eyes, “There is an emperor word on the flag!”
I charged forwards but their heavy shield camp appeared in front of us. These giants held heavy shields that were a few tonnes and formed a defense line. We had to break through!
I flipped my wrist and power surged in. I activated Heaven Control and focused on all the shields but I didn’t have enough strength. I used all the god power and a domain light appeared which stunned Wan Er and Mocha. In the next moment, their shields flew up and broke free from their control. All the soldiers tried to hold on but they flew up too and were raised into the sky.
Aotian War Emperor’s tent was 200 meters out. I raised my arm and a few hundred shields along with dozens of them flew towards the tent. The shields flew really quickly and smashed many people. Among them were high ranked officers.
“Great, kill!” Q-Sword held his sword and covered.
In the chaos, a giant in red armor charged out with a blade. He was furious, “Damn humans you actually dare to sneak attack me, you are asking to get destroyed!”
Aotian War Emperor was here!
I couldn’t see his level or stats. This was a boss that exceeded everything we knew!
