The Charm of Soul Pets - Chapters Chapter 1255: Yellow Springs Path: Powerful Angry Horn Devil
In a short period of time, the navy legion’s emperor army had lost 1000 members!
In the navy legion, Big Leader Xu Kuang, Leader Hai Qie, Leader Tie Bing, Military Adviser Huang Mang and three other lower status ocean commanders had extremely serious expressions.
“This is still just the first guardian!” said a lower status ocean commander with a stunned expression.
One fourth of the navy legion had already miserably perished. This loss had completely surpassed the predictions of the leaders. This emperor rank navy legion wasn’t able to stand a single attack from Paramita!
“You three take action.” Xu Kuang swept his eyes over the three lower status ocean commanders.
The three of them nodded their heads and instantly chanted incantations, summoning three high class dominators.
Once the three high class dominators entered the fight, the Paramita demon’s slaughter was slowed.
Among the three high class dominators, one was a vine type. Vine types had stronger restriction abilities than wood types. The Paramita demon’s black figure was forced back onto the bloody path and its azure eyes blossomed with a cold and savage glint.
When Paramita Demon came to a halt, Chu Mu who was far away finally saw the creature clearly.
This was a completely black soul pet, and it looked like a well-built and slender devil wolf.
On its head was a long horn and its forehead was surrounded by bloody red devil markings that looked particularly evil and demonic!
“Old Li, what creature is this?” Chu Mu had never seen this wolf-looking horned demon.
“It should be the Angry Horn Devil. Its species rank is near the top of demon species!” said Old Li.
“The Angry Horn Devil is one of the blood drinkers among demons. Blood drinkers are those that enjoy slaughter and drinking blood. In places where the aura of slaughter is heavier, their strength will increase. The navy legion clearly doesn’t know this as they sent out navy members to exhaust it. However, all this is doing is increasing the Angry Horn Devil’s vicious nature, making it harder to deal with.” continued Old Li.
As he spoke, the Angry Horn Devil launched another attack.
The Angry Horn Devil was extremely fast. Chu Mu had only seen this kind of speed from Mo Xie.
A black figure ripped open the blood red underground river, and its body ran along the rocky wall until it reached the very top of the Yellow Springs Path cave.
Angry Horn Devil’s four limbs firmly grabbed onto the rock at the top, and its pair of terrifying azure eyes glared at the high class dominator rank Slaughter Devil Tiger!
A cutting blade swiped down from the top. The high class dominator rank Slaughter Devil Tiger had just dodged, when a bloody wound that reached its bone appeared on its back!
Fresh blood splurted out from its back!!
It was another cutting blade, but nobody was able to visibly see this second attack from the Angry Horn Devil!
A second bloody mark appeared on the Slaughter Devil Tiger, and fresh blood splurted out again!
“Idiot, hurry up, and recall it!” Leader Hai Qie berated the adjacent lower status ocean commander!
This lower status ocean commander finally reacted, and hastily chanted an incantation, recalling the Slaughter Devil Tiger to its soul pet space.
At this moment, the dominator rank vine type’s technique arrived too late.
Angry Horn Devil’s reaction speed was extremely fast. Its body didn’t need to move and it was mysteriously able to slide back very far away. An instant later, the techniques from a thousand elemental emperors terrifyingly exploded where Angry Horn Devil had just attacked Slaughter Devil Tiger and continued bombarding to where Angry Horn Devil was now.
Angry Horn Devil continued to slide back and the ripples from the elemental attack landed on its body, leaving small wounds. However, Angry Horn Devil was too fast and it was able to escape the technique coverage from over a thousand elemental emperors. The only thing it left was a small few wounds on its body.
Chu Mu saw the whole fight. Wasn’t Angry Horn Devil’s fighting instincts too strong?!
The navy legion’s intentions were very clear just now. They wanted Slaughter Devil Tiger to take the Angry Horn Devil’s attacks because this was the only chance the navy legion would have at locking down the Angry Horn Devil’s location.
Angry Horn Devil had fallen for this, but from the moment it wounded the Slaughter Devil Tiger to when it dodged the Devil Vine and slid back from the group attack of the elemental emperors, it hadn’t taken even the slightest pause. Its attack, dodge and retreat flowed as smooth as water. While part of this was attributed to its peak dominator rank strength, more of it was due to its sharp fighting instincts!
Chu Mu himself was a fighting madman, and he was very certain that this kind of fighting instinct could only be nurtured through much effort and revision. Even if this kind of a soul pet were to fight a same ranked creature, it would be able to overwhelmingly defeat its enemy.
While Chu Mu had sensed Angry Horn devil’s sharp fighting instincts, Big Leader Xu Kuang, Leader Hai Qie, Leader Tie Bing and Military Adviser Huang Mang also realized this.
These four people that controlled 3rd Navy Legion were all looking in shock and disbelief at the Angry Horn Devil that was able to escape outside the range of the elemental bombardment. It was a while before they came back to their senses.
“The… the strength of Paramita is too terrifying!” said Ocean Commander Tie Bing, entranced.
The morale of the navy legion had suffered a severe blow. This was such a large legion with such concentrated attacks. Yet, despite the long amount of time that had elapsed, it had only managed to deal small wounds on the enemy. Most importantly, their ocean commander’s Slaughter Devil Tiger had suffered a heavy injury and wouldn’t be able to participate in the fight for a short while.
“What are you flustered for. Maintain formation!” angrily roared Big Leader Xu Kuang, “Don’t be like a girl. If you die, you die. Eliminate the enemy first before you grieve the losses!”
Big Leader Xu Kuang indeed was an intimidating force in 3rd Navy Legion. His beratement roused all of the navy members with spirit.
“I’ll ask about that sentence later. I’ll deal with that creature now.” Ocean Commander Hai Qie threw a glance at Big Leader Xu Kuang and narrowed her eyes.
“You have no part in this. I spend every day training them and have spent a huge amount of money investing in them. If they can’t even deal with the first guardian, there will be nothing to pity even if they all die.” coldly said Big Leader Xu Kuang.
Ocean Commander Hai Qie opened her mouth, wanting to say something. But when she saw Xu Kuang’s eyes, she ultimately shut her mouth.
There were still three guardians up ahead and they were definitely stronger than the Angry Horn Devil. If they used all their strength here, the Yellow Springs Path would really become their yellow spring’s path.
“Plant team move forward. Elemental team all release defensive techniques. Wing team remain in the air; if it doesn’t leave the ground, don’t attack…” Big Leader Xu Kuang replaced Military Adviser Huang Mang and began to command the legion.
Once Xu Kuang changed the formation, all of the plant type soul pets began to continuously launch attacks. They set up restrictions everywhere, not giving the Angry Horn Devil a chance to willfully pass through.
Once the elemental soul pets transformed into a full defensive state, the number of casualties greatly dropped. The Angry Horn Devil launched three or four consecutive attacks, and there were only about 300 emperors that died.
“Just keep exhausting it like this. It doesn’t matter how many die… hmph, a group of useless things!” berated Xu Kuang.
Any demon would be very limited in group attack techniques no matter how strong it was. Once the entire navy legion adopted a defensive stance and began a war of attrition, the fight was no longer as lopsided as before.
“This navy legion big commander has a bit of brains. Although he will continue to suffer losses in this defensive state, a demon won’t be able to deal with the continuous exhausting no matter how strong it is.” softly evaluated Old Li.
The Angry Horn Devil didn’t stop attacking, but the defensive fortress created by the legion of three thousand remained abnormally sturdy. Each attack was only able to take away a hundred or so emperor lives!
After ten continuous attacks, the navy legeion’s emperor number had dropped to around 2500.
Meanwhile, the Angry Horn Devil’s wounds continued to compile. The poison and other negative effects from the plant creatures were taking effect, continuously slowing down its movements.
The Angry Horn Devil gradually lost its majesty from before, becoming weak.
“Ok, attack!” the big leader suddenly shouted out.
The formation rapidly shifted and in an instant, the wing type soul pets that were previously only harassing, all released techniques that shot towards the Angry Horn Devil.
The defensive state elemental creatures rapidly chanted incantations. Multicolored techniques descended en masse, causing the large cave to violently shake.
After the techniques bombarded the area, the beast type emperors angrily roared and pounced over while the plant world soul pets set up various restrictions.
While the navy legion’s attacks became fierce, the Angry Horn Devil had had a large amount of physical strength exhausted, and its steps finally became disordered in the face of this sudden surge of attacks!
Devil King Vine’s vines fiercely whipped the Angry Horn Devil, causing it to let out a mournful wail. Its body was heavily knocked back to the rock wall, leaving a bloody imprint!
The moment it rolled to the ground, the attacks from the elemental soul pets mercilessly descended. Angry Horn Devil’s completely wounded body transformed into an illusory after-image that instantaneously disappeared from the ground.
“Hong hong hong hong~~~~~~”
The elemental technique bombardment left holes upon holes in the rock wall and the technique was still continuing.
“All of you stop! Did you not see that it already fled?!” loudly yelled Xu Kuang.
The navy members’ soul pets slowly stopped their techniques. When the smoke from the techniques dissipated, the navy members finally discovered that the demon truly had disappeared!
“Go and collect the corpses of your soul pets. If you aren’t able to collect them, bury them next to the river. Since they’re able to die in the second Demonic Burial Mound, they deserve the same honorable burial as the dominator rank demons on the island.” ordered Xu Kuang.
There weren’t many navy members that collected the corpses of their soul pets. For one, it was practically impossible to find one’s soul pet amongst the mass of corpses, and for another, Xu Kuang was correct in saying that it was an honor to die here.
After a moment of reorganization, the military adviser counted the number of casualties and softly said to Big Leader Xu Kuang and the other two leaders: “2479 emperor rank soul pets died this time. 39 high class dominator ranks and under no longer have the strength to fight, seven have died, one is severely wounded, and two have moderate wounds. There are also 400 navy members that died.”
The two leaders’ expressions turned grave and Hai Qie softly said: “This was just the first guardian, Paramita, and we lost half of our subordinate’s fighting strength.”
Ocean Leader Tie Bing nodded his head: “This was also the weakest guardian.”
“We indeed slightly underestimated their power. It seems that I must request for external assistance.” said Big Leader Xu Kuang.
All of the leaders of the legion looked confusedly at Big Leader Xu Kuang.
Only 3rd Navy Legion had come here. Where would they get external assistance from?
Big Leader Xu Kuang moved his eyes, and sharply stared at where Chu Mu, Princess Jinrou, Chao Lengchuan, Xia Zhixian and Sang Ying were hiding!
