Complete Martial Arts Attributes - Chapter 1966
Chapter 1966 Attack Of The Poison Tide! (5)
Time slowly passed, and the poison tide in the sky had not dissipated. It continued to sweep over the Rui Snake City from above.
Its target was not solely the Rui Snake City. It was merely passing through from this location.
However, this poison tide seemed unusually massive, and even after such a long time, it had not completely passed.
“Your Majesty!” The faces of the snakemen heaven-stage martial warriors turned pale as they sensed the danger. Their eyes turned solemn as they looked at their queen.
“The poison tide is more ferocious than before!” The snakemen queen opened her mouth. There was a hint of seriousness in her voice as she said, “Go to the nodes of the array and instill your Force into it. Maintain the operation of the array until the poison tide ends.”
The heaven-stage martial warriors rushed towards the nodes of the arrays around the city again. At first, they thought that the array could withstand the attacks but now it seemed they had to take action as well.
A few explosions occurred, and beams of light erupted around the array.
The array, which had seemed on the verge of collapse, gradually stabilized as these light beams rose, as if infused with a powerful force.
Wang Teng watched this scene with increasing amazement.
“This array can be powered by the Force of martial warriors. The person who inscribed this formation must have a very high level of skill.”
He mused to himself with a glint in his eyes.
Ordinary formations could only be sustained by energy stones because the Force within energy stones was sufficiently pure and did not lead to repulsion.
The Forces within martial warriors’ bodies were different for each individual. If the array were powered by the Forces of multiple martial warriors, their Forces would clash, and the array would inevitably collapse.
However, this formation did not experience such issues. It could only mean that the person who inscribed the array had a high level of skill. They had likely inscribed runes that converted the type of Forces used by martial warriors, allowing their Forces to be refined and become the fuel for the formation.
This process may seem simple but wasn’t easy. Without a certain level of expertise, it was impossible to integrate it into a mature formation.
However, even with the input of the Force from several heaven-stage martial warriors, the array could not hold on for long.
Soon, the formation began to emit cracking sounds as cracks appeared under the corrosion of countless toxic creatures.
The snakemen queen’s expression changed slightly. She turned and immediately entered the palace.
In the blink of an eye, a massive beam of light, several times thicker than the ones generated by the heaven-stage martial warriors, soared from the top of a building in the center of the royal palace.
The beam of light merged with the protective screen above, intensifying its brilliance and sealing the newly formed cracks.
However, despite witnessing this, Wang Teng did not relax.
This poison tide was too terrifying, and it didn’t seem like it was ending anytime soon.
Now, even the queen of the snakemen race had acted personally. The snakemen might have exhausted their options.
If they couldn’t hold it back…
At that moment, Wang Teng’s gaze sharpened, and he immediately looked toward the castle prison in the distance.
After waiting for so long, that guy had finally taken action.
“This guy has been inactive for so long, and now he decides to move.” Wang Teng’s expression wasn’t favorable.
The threat of the poison tide had even made him feel uneasy. If they couldn’t withstand it, even if Landon found something valuable, they might not be able to take it with them.
“Wait!” Wang Teng was astounded. “Did he know that the poison tide is coming?”
“That’s impossible. No one can predict the poison tide. Even if he knew it was coming, how would he know that it would pass through this city? That’s impossible,” Round Ball said.
“That’s true. If he could predict something like this, he’d be a real genius, and he wouldn’t be in this situation.” Wang Teng nodded.
Round Ball was speechless. “Well, he’s not doing that badly.”
“This is not bad enough? A stellar academy student is reduced to sneaking around like this, that’s pretty miserable!” Wang Teng argued.
“… You make a good point.” Round Ball couldn’t refute.
In no time, there were sounds of explosions from the prison and the pitiful cries and shouts of the snakemen inside.
A surge of energy emanated from the entrance of the prison.
Wang Teng looked in that direction and saw the prison gate explode, followed by several figures flying out of it.
Amid the dust and smoke, a figure walked out calmly, with a cold and indifferent expression. His bald head glistened brightly in the smoke.
This was Landon!
“He’s out!” Wang Teng muttered to himself but didn’t stand up. He continued to sit cross-legged and watched from a distance.
The snakemen martial warriors around the prison had their attention drawn to the poison tide in the sky and hadn’t anticipated a jailbreak. When they saw Landon appearing, they were taken aback.
“Don’t let him escape!”
However, they quickly reacted and rushed towards Landon, launching various attacks at him.
“Hmph!” Landon snorted coldly, his eyes radiating an icy aura. He pointed his spear in hand.
A few snakemen martial warriors who were only at the celestial stage started bleeding from their chests. They perished instantly without even being able to scream.
The snakemen martial warriors further away were surprised by his strength and hesitated to approach.
At this moment, a powerful aura surged from a distance, It was a cosmos-stage snakeman martial warrior.
Landon squinted. He glanced at the poison tide in the sky with a grave expression. He didn’t plan to waste any time and dashed into the palace.
He was going into the snakemen’s palace.
Wang Teng wasn’t surprised by this. After lurking for so long, Landon definitely had a plan in mind.
The object of his interest couldn’t be found anywhere else. It had to be within the palace.
“Stop him!” The cosmos-stage snakeman martial warrior’s expression changed as he shouted hurriedly.
Their queen was inside the palace, maintaining the protective formation, and they couldn’t allow anyone to disturb her.
Moreover, the intruder was an escaped prisoner, and letting him enter the palace could lead to catastrophic consequences.
Despite their fear, the other snakemen martial warriors recognized the urgency of the situation and rushed out to intercept Landon.
However, the power difference between them and Landon was immense. With a single exchange, several celestial-stage snakemen were killed.
Landon turned into a ray of light and smashed open the palace’s gate, charging inside.
At that moment, most of the palace guards had gone to help with the evacuation of the citizens, leaving only a few inside, making it a perfect opportunity for Landon.
The cosmos-stage snakeman behind roared in anger but realized that he couldn’t catch up with the escaped prisoner. He was furious.
Wang Teng watched this scene and looked up at the poison tide in the sky, cursing his bad luck. In the end, he had no choice but to get up and chase after Landon.
