Versatile Mage - Chapter 3029
3029 Hunting the Ancient God
The Ring of the Sun was what deterred the Golden Sun Knights from approaching the Ancient God Apollo. If they tried, it would have melted them.
But now, the Ring of the Sun was no longer a threat. More than a hundred Golden Sun Knights surrounded the Ancient God Apollo. More than a thousand Silver Moon Knights were around Goddess Ye Xinxia. Meanwhile, the Blue Star Knights formed squares on the ground.
Magic worked its way. The long, blood spears transformed into gold. The golden long spear then grew even more huge and magnificent. They stood upright and formed an ancient pine forest.
The scalding Golden Knight Long Spears were shot at the Golden Sun Tyrant Titan. The Tyrant Titan had nowhere to hide, and its body was no longer indestructible. As a result, it was wounded. Its wounds resembled a honeycomb, and its blood gushed out of its wounds like honey. It burned in the air.
The Ancient God Apollo groaned in pain. Black spots appeared on its gold-cast body. The black spots wriggled and crawled out of the Ancient God Apollo’s skin. They spread its wings, then lunged at the Blue Star Knights and the Golden Sun Knights.
“They are mites that live on the ancient god. They survive by gnawing on the dermal fats of the ancient creature!” said Norman in great urgency.
Norman had read the records about the Ancient Godly Mites in an old collection. Based on the description, the Ancient Godly Mites were extremely terrifying. He was, however, unsure of how exactly the Ancient Godly Mites threatened the living beings.
The Ancient Godly Mites swarmed the knights like flies. The knights screamed in agony before wilting like flowers and writhing on the ground. They looked as if they had been gnawed by tens and thousands of poisonous bugs and could not break free of them.
“We can’t stop them using the Light Element Magic. The Ancient Godly Mites will torture the knights to death!” Hua Lisi saw many Silver Moon Knights and Blue Star Knights being tortured by the Ancient Godly Mites.
The Light Element Magic had no effect on the Ancient Godly Mites. The rain of Soul Divine Light could not save the knights from the parasites.
“Freeze them, then continue to attack the Golden Sun Tyrant Titan!” Ye Xinxia was aware that those were ancient evil magic. Therefore, they had to kill the Golden Sun Tyrant Titans as soon as possible. Meanwhile, they would temporarily freeze the knights with the parasites.
The female servants and sages understood what Ye Xinxia meant by “freezing” the knights.
Given a situation where they could not break a disease curse, the female sages would perform Life Stillness Art on the victims. It was sort of a delayed healing spell to freeze their bodies. Izisha used to lay inside an Ice Coffin. The Ice Coffin was not some kind of Ice Element Magic, it was called Life Stillness Art.
The knights had been attacked by the powerful and demonic Ancient Godly Mites. Hence, the female sages had to temporarily remove them from the fight.
The Golden Sun Knights had not been contaminated by the Ancient Godly Mites. After they received God Hunting Will, dozens of the Lightning Element Golden Sun Knights worked together to build a Star Palace!
Tons of Star Palaces appeared before the Golden Sun Knights. The Star Palaces were majestic and filled with the power of lightning. Purple and red lightning flashed. The lightning surrounded the Ancient God Apollo. They intertwined to form a barrier. They eventually formed an altar of the God of Thunder!
“Zeus Divine Punishment!”
The Knight of the Seal Zeus led the knights in the formation. The super-level Lightning Element Magic interlaced with one another and formed a Demon Destruction Cage. It was covered with powerful soul-piercing Ring Thunder Cones…
The Ancient God Apollo became motionless under Zeus’ God of Thunder Halberd. The soul-piercing Ring Thunder Cones was likened to a torturer who tortured one’s flesh with a tool to chisel rock.
Although the Ancient God Apollo became numb with pain, it could not bear the agony inflicted by Zeus’ attack. The Golden Sun Tyrant Titan flew into a fit of rage. Its body looked like a tumbling pool of lava with black waves of flames occasionally gushing out of its body
The Knight of the Seal Bullseye led the Water Element Knights and summoned a tsunami to counteract the black waves of flames. They suppressed the Tyrant Titan’s strong flames.
They had finally restrained the Ancient God Apollo. They had gained an upper hand in the battle. As long as the knights of Parthenon Temple united, they could destroy the demonic Tyrant Titan. Moreover, Ye Xinxia had possessed an awakened Divine Soul. She granted everyone with the “Seal of Bright Charm”!
The Goddess of Parthenon Temple possessed Star Charm, Moon Charm, and Bright Charm. Although she may lack the ability to fight with an emperor-level creature, she could cast Blessing Element Magic to build the world’s strongest magic army. Even the weak Blue Star Knights could fight independently under the Goddess’ blessing.
Thousands of Bright Charm flew toward the knights who were in the middle of the fight with the Ancient God Apollo. The Seal of Bright Charm combined with their God Hunting Will which enabled their destructive magic to inflict absolute destructive power.
The Emperor-level creatures usually ignored magic below the Forbidden Curse level. This was because those creatures possessed unparalleled bodies that surpassed many extraordinary, supernatural powers. However, when the knights were granted with God Hunting Will and the Seal of Bright Charm, every Golden Sun Knight was granted with the ability to pierce the Ancient God Apollo. Every Silver Moon Knight was capable of scarring the Ancient God Apollo. The Blue Star Knights could hold back the Ancient God Apollo’s destructive power.
Under the Goddess’ rain of light, the Hall of Knights became powerful like never before. Even the Forbidden Mages paled in comparison to them.
The army was in high spirits. The Ancient God Apollo was no longer a mythical existence. It was none other than a barbaric and savage demon. Without the Ring of the Sun, it was just a giant beast before the Goddess and the Hall of Knights!
The abandoned Ancient God was still a beast at heart! How could it be compared to the Goddess of Parthenon Temple who brought true peace to the world and granted great power to the knights?
The Goddess was both wise and powerful. The people had no need of the power of savagery. They only wanted to live in peace. They also wanted the power that allowed them to fight back ruthlessly against those that trampled their dignity!
The Daughter of the Fire Soul was nowhere to be seen on the Ancient God Apollo’s shoulder.
The Ancient God Apollo became even more savage and barbaric. It gradually lost its sanity. Ye Xinxia and the Hall of Knights lured it out of the city.
Under the White Finches Barrier, the crowd saw the Golden Sun Tyrant Titan get further away from them. They cheered. Even though the Golden Sun Tyrant Titan was not dead yet, reality showed them a fact that could not be ignored.
With the presence of the new Goddess, nothing could hurt them anymore! Athens would resume its peace!
“If I were given a chance again, I’d still choose the olive flowers.”
“The Goddess is what makes Greece a country with soul and dignity.”
Tap! Tap! Tap!
White feathers gradually fell from the white barrier. The white feathers transformed into holy white finches. They grouped together and carried Ye Xinxia on top of them as they flew out of the city.
“My lady, there are a lot of moving mountains nearby Aigaleo Mountain. If I’m not mistaken, they are the Mountain Giants colony!” said Hua Lisi.
“The Mad Poppies lured them here. This is just the beginning.” Ye Xinxia could not see that far, but she heard tremors coming from the west of Aigaleo Mountain.
Aside from the Ancient God Apollo, the Golden Sun Tyrant Titan, the Twin Tyrant Titans, and the Mountain Tyrant Titan colony, the Deep Ocean Giant and the Night Giant may appear near Athens. As Izisha had mentioned, Salan’s only purpose was to carry out a great massacre!
“Kill the Ancient God Apollo and the rest of the giants will panic,” said Ye Xinxia.
The Ancient God Apollo, the Golden Sun Tyrant Titan was the strongest of them all.
A Goddess had once killed a Golden Sun Tyrant Titan, the Ancient God Hades. The Ancient God Hades represented the god of the Spirit Giant. Since then, Greece had been free from the Tyrant Titan’s invasion for ten decades.
The Tyrant Titan colony was not as savage and brave as they imagined. The Tyrant Titans were a bunch of cowards that trimmed their sails. The Mountain Giants and the Twin Tyrant Titans dared not show up and enter Athens before this because the Golden Sun Tyrant Titan had not paved the way for them.
Once the Golden Sun Tyrant Titan died, the Mountain Giants colony would flee.
The current Greece was different from before because of the birth of the new Goddess.
The Hall of Knights had been granted with the Blessing of the Goddess. They became a group of merciless Tyrant Titan slayers. All the giant races were afraid of them!
Rays of light fell on Athenians. Those were the afterglow left by the knights with the Seal of Moon Charm. They gathered at the foothill of Aigaleo Mountain in the west. They would execute the plan to kill the ancient god.
The Knight of the Seal led the hunting team. They formed a cage using Lightning Element Magic, long spears with Wind Element Magic, and blades with Water Element Magic. Those three elements were capable of inflicting absolute damage on the Ancient God Apollo, especially after the addition of the God Hunting Will and Seal of Bright Charm!
The ancient god groaned. It kept sweeping the ground with its black-striped flames. Ye Xinxia kept the knights in protection. She weaved tens and thousands of Star Constellation armor with every blessing. The Blue Star Knights and the Silver Moon Knights performed defensive magic together. With the help of the Seal of Star Charm, their magic increased by multiple times.
An advanced-level Mage’s defensive magic was as powerful as that of a super-level Mage.
The blessing power was truly amazing! Even an emperor-level giant was no match for such a massive army of knights!
The Tyrant Titan fell. One of the brave Knights of the Seal came out with a razor-sharp blade in red and slashed at the Golden Sun Tyrant Titan’s chest ruthlessly. Golden blood gushed out of its wound and formed a golden rainstorm in Aigaleo Mountain. Its golden blood was as hot as molten metal, but it quickly cooled down.
The mites that lived on the ancient god’s skin fled in panic and stirred up a strong air of cursed epidemic. Ye Xinxia had no intention of letting the dirty Ancient Godly Mites escape. She recited a purification spell and snuffed them out before they spread.
