Chapter 2009 Ironback Centipede!
The poison tide loomed ominously, with toxic mists rolling in a terrifying display.
Several figures dashed within the poison tide, exuding powerful auras that made the venomous star beasts in the vicinity retreat and dare not approach.
At the forefront was a figure enveloped in a radiant golden glow.
The golden light sometimes scattered into tiny specks, and at other times, it faintly transformed into the image of a divine golden phoenix, shrouding Wang Teng. He appeared as if he had become a real golden phoenix.
The golden light pushed away all the poisonous mists around him, making them unable to come close.
Behind him, a few individuals closely followed, their faces filled with astonishment.
Wan Dong’s expression subtly changed. He had assumed that Wang Teng had used all his strength to defeat him.
But now, seeing Wang Teng employ his spiritual power, he realized he had never truly understood the young man before him.
Astonishment appeared in Cob’s eyes as he looked at Wang Teng. He couldn’t fathom just how strong this young man’s talent was. He couldn’t help but feel a hint of jealousy.
The other party was much younger than him but his overwhelming strength indicated that his talent far exceeded theirs.
Such talent was a rare find even within the Stellar Academies.
The queen of the snakemen race was astounded too, but her thoughts went deeper.
The golden light was clearly an item left behind by the heaven-realm divine spirit master he had killed earlier, and yet, it was now in Wang Teng’s possession.
He wielded it as if he had mastered the control of the weapon completely.
This was intriguing.
Wang Teng had only obtained these weapons a few days ago, yet he had mastered them completely. He displayed no hint of clumsiness when using it.
His talent was astonishing!
The queen of the snakemen race was even more certain that this person was extraordinary.
Gikdor glanced at Wang Teng, feeling shocked but not dwelling on it too long. Instead, he surveyed their surroundings, observing the situation.
The dense, poisonous mist in the area grew thicker, making it increasingly uncomfortable for them.
The group had to release their Force to form protective shields, which were continuously eroded by the poisonous gas.
After flying for some time, the weaker star beasts could no longer be seen. They were now surrounded by mid-tier imperial-level star beasts.
These creatures were aggressive, charging at them from time to time, forcing the group to expend their energy to fend them off.
The entire journey was incredibly draining!
Even heaven-stage formidable warriors couldn’t persist in such an environment for long.
“Wang Teng, where are we going?” Wan Dong and the others noticed the situation and couldn’t help but ask.
“We’re here!” Wang Teng suddenly stopped in his tracks, floating in the mist, and gazed ahead.
Wan Dong and the others were taken aback.
They had just asked, and now they were already here.
They regretted asking, as it made them seem impatient.
“Be careful!” Wang Teng glanced at everyone and warned.
Wan Dong and the others immediately became vigilant.
In this thick mist, it was difficult for them to sense their surroundings. The denser the mist, the harder it was to sense anything.
Wang Teng wouldn’t give them warnings without reason.
According to their calculations, they were approaching the atmosphere of Scorpion King Star.
At such a high altitude, the poison mist persisted. The presence of star beasts here, if any, would be extremely terrifying.
These geniuses from the Stellar Academies, although full of pride, were not foolish. They quickly realized the implications.
Just then, the mist in front of them began to churn violently, and massive black shadows emerged, causing alarm.
“What is that?” Wan Dong exclaimed.
The others’ faces turned serious, each channeling their Force and peering forward.
The shadows eventually became visible, and they were none other than enormous, grotesque centipede-like star beasts, with their countless legs wriggling, sending shivers down their spines.
“High-tier imperial-level star beasts! There are so many of them!” Cob exclaimed grimly.
The others also wore similarly uneasy expressions. While they were prepared for danger, they had never anticipated encountering so many high-tier imperial-level star beasts.
The incessant, piercing hisses filled the air, carrying a menacing undertone, as if they intended to intimidate the group.
“Human martial warriors, leave!”
Suddenly, a spiritual fluctuation was felt.
Wang Teng wasn’t surprised. High-tier imperial-level star beasts exhibited a degree of intelligence, some could speak when they reached the emperor level, while others might be more unique and, even when they reached the Imperial level, couldn’t speak aloud. However, they could communicate through spiritual fluctuations.
The star beast before them seemed to belong to the latter category!
Wan Dong and the others turned serious when they heard this.
Most star beasts within the poison tide lacked high intelligence and acted on instincts. However, the centipede-like star beasts in front of them were more intelligent, making it an even more formidable opponent.
“Everyone, prepare to fight and take down these high-tier imperial-level centipedes!” Wang Teng’s eyes revealed a hint of cold determination as he gave his orders.
“You’re out of your mind! This place is so dangerous, who knows how many high-tier imperial-level star beasts are lurking here? If we fully agitate them, none of us will survive,” Wan Dong urgently protested.
“I said, attack!” Wang Teng’s tone remained calm as he looked at him, saying it plainly.
Wan Dong’s face froze, and his muscles twitched uncontrollably. He instinctively averted his gaze from Wang Teng, his anger boiling within.
He had never suffered such humiliation!
However, in the presence of Wang Teng, he felt powerless. With the poison in his body, he couldn’t escape from Wang Teng’s grasp.
Gikdor’s eyes flashed. Without further words, he directly launched an attack, charging at the massive centipede.
A blade glow burst from his hand and struck the tough carapace of the massive centipede.
The wounded centipede star beast, under the pain, let out a hissing sound and its cold, menacing eyes flashed with ferocious intent.
It suddenly lunged forward, attacking Gikdor.
The other centipede star beasts, seeing their companion under attack, grew furious and emitted loud screeches. Then, all the centipedes rushed towards Wang Teng and the others.
An intense battle erupted in an instant.
Wan Dong and the others had mixed expressions, feeling frustrated and infuriated, but they had no choice but to fight back. They unleashed their Force attacks and lunged forward.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
The deafening roars echoed within the mist, and the fog around them churned violently.
“Cursed sycophant!” Cob muttered curses under his breath while attacking.
He was now loathing Gikdor with all his heart. If it weren’t for that guy trying to flatter Wang Teng, they wouldn’t be in such a passive situation.
Wang Teng and the queen of the snakemen race exchanged glances with each other and acted simultaneously.
The queen wielded a sword that appeared in her hand, unleashing a barrage of emerald-green sword lights that surrounded and struck down a centipede star beast.
Wang Teng’s eyes gleamed as he observed the queen’s attack style. It reminded him of Cang Yu.
Their battle techniques were very similar.
However, there was a subtle difference. He was puzzled.
What was their relationship?
Three centipede celestial creatures charged towards Wang Teng, emitting shrill hisses, attempting to surround and attack him.
Their incredibly tough bodies were like weapons, swinging fiercely as they converged on Wang Teng in a triangular formation.
Wang Teng instantly recognized one of the centipede star beasts, marked by the damage he had inflicted during their last encounter.
“You have a death wish!”
Wang Teng’s eyes gleamed with cold determination, a sly smile appearing at the corner of his mouth. They thought that adding two more allies would enable them to overpower him.
What a joke!
Ancient God’s Body, activated!
True Dragon Battle Physique, activate!
In an instant, Wang Teng activated two different physiques simultaneously.
A complex and mystical pattern of golden lines emerged at his forehead, and his body, coursing with pale golden blood, erupted with an incredibly powerful vital energy.
At the same time.
A sea of green flames spread, enveloping Wang Teng.
In the next moment, he stepped out of the sea of flames. His body was covered in green dragon scales, exuding a faint yet palpable dragon’s aura.
The three centipede star beasts were momentarily stunned, their eyes revealing an uncontrollable sense of fear.
In comparison to many star beasts, dragons were a bloodline of the highest nobility, and their draconic presence naturally struck fear into the hearts of numerous star beasts.
This was a bloodline suppression!
Seizing the moment while the three centipedes were intimidated, Wang Teng didn’t hesitate. He unleashed his Five-element Fist and lunged towards them.
At this moment, Wang Teng’s physical strength alone was enough to threaten high-tier imperial-level star beasts.
Bang! Bang! Bang …
The fist imprints struck the massive bodies of the three centipedes, producing a deep and muffled sound that reverberated in the void.
Wang Teng directly targeted their vital points, with most of the fist imprints landing on the heads of the centipedes. These blows left the creatures dazed, rendering them unable to resist. The intense heat of his attacks also invaded their bodies, causing internal disintegration.
The three centipedes continued to emit hissing sounds.
Their exoskeletons were indeed incredibly tough, and even Wang Teng’s strength couldn’t kill them immediately.
Wang Teng frowned slightly as his gaze swept over their massive bodies, searching for a weak point.
“Wang Teng, I found it. These are Ironback Centipedes. Their weakness is in the abdomen, near the jaws. But be careful, Ironback Centipedes secrete venom from their jaws, extremely deadly. Even heaven-stage martial warriors can be poisoned. Do not underestimate them. It hasn’t used it yet, so it’s probably waiting for you to let your guard down,” Round Ball’s voice suddenly sounded in Wang Teng’s mind.
“The Ironback Centipede!” Wang Teng’s eyes lit up. “The weakness is in the abdomen near the jaw, right?”
Immediately, he held a combat blade in his hand, and with a swift movement, activated his Light Bolt. He manifested beneath one of the Ironback Centipede, ready to strike.
Let’s start with you!
A golden blade radiance swept out, slashing towards the abdomen of the Ironback Centipede.
Heaven-stage combat technique, the Metal Gash Blade Skill!
This was a simple but incredibly sharp blade attack.
The Ironback Centipede was agile but it was huge. Thus, when Wang Teng used his Light Bolt, it couldn’t react in time.
Moreover, within a certain range, they couldn’t fully unleash their full abilities.
At this moment, as Wang Teng had already launched his attack, it could barely react in time.
The Ironback Centipede emitted a panicked hissing sound.
In its haste, a dark green radiance shot out from its jaw, aiming to intercept the golden blade radiance like an arrow.
