With a mighty roar, twenty thousand soldiers rushed forward in a torrent of steel.
Even though Hular, the Empire’s White Corpse, usually showed no emotion on his pale face, this time, even he couldn’t help but show a little anger. No matter how powerful his opponent was, it was just an army of twenty thousand. They were made of flesh and blood like all the rest. Did they really think that they could contend against an army of one hundred thousand?
And even if they could overcome one hundred thousand, farther back was Shifan, which contained two hundred thousand more soldiers.
With an icy face, Hular pulled out his sword and gave the order to attack.
The earth quaked as the one hundred thousand Arab soldiers charged forward to meet the Tang, Khorasani, and other rebel soldiers. Boom! Twenty thousand collided with one hundred thousand in a stunning impact.
But this battle was foreordained to turn out differently from how Hular imagined. As the two armies clashed like primordial beasts, two groups of soldiers charged out from the left and right flanks of the Tang army, riding in long arcs before stabbing into the sides of the Arabs. Meanwhile, the rest of the army stabbed into the Arab ranks like a sharp sword and cut straight through it.
Right after they had charged through the enemy formation, the several thousand Wushang Cavalry scattered like petals and began to slice through the Arab army like so many knives.
In mere moments, the center of the Arab army collapsed into chaos.
“Bastard! Kill them!”
Hular was enraged at this sight. For any army, the collapse of the center was extremely lethal.
Although the enemy was fierce, they were not so formidable as to be invincible. Arabia still had the advantage in numbers, and there were still two hundred thousand soldiers in the rear waiting for the order, ready to charge out at any time. But while Hular was still clinging to hope, suddenly…
There was a metallic clang as an invisible energy spread over the battlefield. Clangclangclang! All the halos on the bodies of the one hundred thousand soldiers began to weaken, and their auras plunged with frightening speed, leaving them shocked and terrified.
“What’s going on? Just what’s happened? Why has my strength dropped so much!”
The sudden drop in strength threw the Arab formation into more chaos than the Wushang Cavalry’s Cutting Formation.
The latter was physical harm, but the former was an immense mental panic that had come out of nowhere!
And all this was only the beginning. There was yet another metallic clattering, and this time, it was the Arab generals’ turn to have their strength plummet.
Screams of alarm and panic came from behind them, and when they turned their heads, they realized that these sounds of turmoil were coming from Shifan. Hular and the governors beside him instantly turned grim. None of them had expected the range of their opponent’s attack to be so vast that it even encompassed the two hundred thousand soldiers that weren’t even taking part in this battle.
The Bane of the Battlefield Halo!
The Bane of Generals Halo!
Wang Chong faintly smiled atop his White-hoofed Shadow as he unleashed his two most powerful war halos. These Arab soldiers were not as elite as the armies under the command of Qutaybah or Osman, so they suffered far more severe effects.
The Bane of the Battlefield and the Bane of Generals were not invincible halos. As long as an expert of the Great General level took action, consuming energy to unleash their own halo, they could weaken the effects of these two halos. But would Wang Chong give them this sort of chance?
“Hurry! Use Great General halos to weaken these two energies!” Pahlavi loudly called out, shocked and infuriated.
Although he had no idea what sort of halo his enemy was using, he was still a governor of Arabia and a Great General expert. He was able to quickly determine the countermeasure.
But before he could finish, the earth quaked and an enormous energy rose from the earth to surge toward the three governors like a tsunami.
“Since you don’t want to retreat, remain here forever!”
Wang Chong’s voice was bone-piercingly cold. It resounded over the world like the god of death announcing the fates of the three.
The three looked up at the same time, but before Hular could react, the governor to his right side, Karim, suddenly shot furiously into the air. Clangclangclang! In a flash, black-red halos erupted from his body, one after the other.
“Karim, watch out!”
Hular paled. Karim had always been the most irascible of the Arab governors, and at a time like this, his trait had become a fatal flaw. No one understood more than him that this youth from the east was stronger than the Great Generals of any other country they had conquered before. He was not something Karim alone could deal with.
Bang! With no time to think, Hular shot into the air like a cannonball. Raaa! As he soared into the sky, the air resounded with the howl of a devil. Hular left shockwaves in the air as he rose. Suddenly a ghastly white foot extended out of the void, followed by a pale white figure.
As everyone watched, a massive white corpse more than thirty meters tall appeared behind Hular. This sight suddenly made everyone understand why he was called ‘the Empire’s White Corpse’.
Awoooo! The moment the corpse appeared, its eyes exploded with light like dazzling suns. At the same time, it gave a bloodthirsty howl infused with powerful Psychic Energy ripples. Everyone in the area suddenly felt an instinctual fear, as if they were ants encountering a frightful predator. They trembled in fear and began to flee. Not even the Arabs were immune to this effect.
Although he was an Arab governor, the Empire’s White Corpse had a fighting style different from all the others. The massive corpse that Hular had summoned possessed powerful Psychic Energy, and its terrifying howl intimidated even Saint Martial experts, instilling deep dread into their hearts.
But before the howl could spread to the entire battlefield, an even more terrifying energy exploded forward, impacting against the pale white corpse. Yowwww! The giant corpse trembled as it covered its head with its hands and began to scream.
The aura around its body fell into chaos.
Moreover, the two dazzling suns that were its eyes began to dim. At the same time, Hular groaned, blood flowing from his ears, nose and eyes. This corpse was merely his avatar, and its life was linked to his own. The avatar being injured was no different from him being injured.
A hint of fear finally appeared in Hular’s eyes. His Hell White Corpse was actually a supreme Psychic Energy technique that not even Saint Martial experts could block, let alone others. But Hular had never imagined that there would be someone on the other side with an even stronger grasp of Psychic Energy.
Hular was far from the only one to suffer from Wang Chong’s Psychic Energy attack. To his left and right, both Pahlavi and Karim had also been struck, and even their attacks had been slowed by this formidable assault.
Wang Chong had further developed Masil’s Shadow Pierce. Shadow Pierce was a technique that targeted only one person, but Wang Chong had developed it into a technique that could attack many people at once. Even if he was facing many Saint Martial experts, he could use this move to jolt their minds and disrupt their souls.
“Great Destruction Art!”
An icy and emotionless voice resounded in the ears of all the Arabs, and a moment later, Wang Chong had unleashed the strongest technique of the Great Yinyang Heaven Creation Art.
Everyone immediately felt a surge of terror in their hearts, but it was too late.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
A massive gust of wind howled down from the sky and impacted against the ground, then a huge explosion hurled several figures into the sky like ragdolls.
Hular began to flee, his face stricken with fear. If one looked carefully, one would notice that one of his hands was hanging limply at his side, blood streaming down it.
This single strike had severely wounded Hular. A destructive power was wreaking havoc in his body, and it was extremely sharp and vicious. Hular had already tried several dozen times to expel it, but all his attempts had failed.
Impossible! Just what sort of energy could be this terrifying!
Hular’s heart was thumping. He had originally believed that the strongest this person could be was Abu Muslim’s level, but not even Abu Muslim could have defeated him like this.
Before Hular could run very far, he heard a wretched scream.
As Hular continued to flee, a massive energy swiftly vanished from his perception.
Hular’s mind sank as he recognized the voice.
“I already said before, all of you were seeking death!”
Wang Chong floated in the air as he spoke in a chilling voice to the Arabs, one of his hands gripping Pahlavi’s neck. He viciously threw Pahlavi’s corpse to the ground like it was a punctured leather bag.
