Wang Chong quickly calmed himself down, his body beginning to radiate an intense will to fight.
“It’s impolite to not reciprocate a gift. Genesis Supreme, take my move!”
After taking Genesis Supreme’s attack, Wang Chong shot forward to start his own offensive on Genesis Supreme.
Stellar Energy radiated outward as Wang Chong exploded forward. A dark golden Halo of Spacetime expanded with terrifying speed, enclosing the surrounding several thousand feet. Within this dark golden Halo of Spacetime were tens of thousands of Halos of Spacetime of different sizes, gathered together into a Halo of Spacetime formation.
Wang Chong had somehow managed to duplicate Genesis Supreme’s attack.
Wang Chong’s original body disappeared into one of the dark golden Halos of Spacetime, his aura vanishing.
When Wang Chong disappeared, nobody noticed that a dark golden light followed him into the Halo of Spacetime.
“Brat, you dare!”
A furious roar came from the depths of the thunderclouds, and a moment later, Genesis Supreme punched, blasting away that golden halberd that had emerged from the dark golden Halo of Spacetime behind him.
This was none other than the golden short halberd that Wang Chong had obtained after killing Firmament Supreme by the Caspian Sea.
After reaching the Grotto Heaven realm, Wang Chong had not only completely digested the Grotto Heaven Core he had seized from Firmament Supreme, he had also refined Firmament Supreme’s golden short halberd, allowing him to use it as he pleased.
“Try it again!”
Wang Chong appeared to not hear as he once more plunged into the depths of spacetime.
Sensing danger, Genesis Supreme also disappeared.
Explosions rang out in the sky as the figures of Wang Chong and Genesis Supreme appeared and disappeared, constantly shifting around as they moved with incredible speed. After just a few moments, it became impossible to keep up with their battle, and even their two auras had become indistinguishable.
To the alliance generals, Grotto Heaven realm battles were as unfathomable as battles between immortals and Buddhas!
“How could this be? This bastard is really that powerful?!”
On the ground, beneath the Youzhou banner, An Lushan stared in wide-eyed shock at the sky.
With his control over the weather and the protection of the black dragon, An Lushan had been extremely confident in the success of his rebellion, believing that his own domineering strength and his immense army would be enough to deal with Wang Chong and take the Central Plains.
But Wang Chong’s display had left him reeling in shock.
Just when had Wang Chong advanced to this level where he could contend against Genesis Supreme?
But a moment later, An Lushan’s eyes erupted with restless ambition.
“Wang Chong, what does it matter how strong you are? This one is the Child of Heaven’s Will! So long as I can defeat the Great Tang, this one will be the true master of the Central Plains!”
An Lushan’s eyes flashed as he turned his attention back to the thirty thousand Yeluohe.
In this war, he had a trump card of an overwhelming nature.
“Tell the front line to work with the Yeluohe and attack!” An Lushan’s cold voice came out from the rear.
As Wang Chong battled with Genesis Supreme, the Yeluohe moved as quickly as lightning, and in just a few seconds, they reached the front.
For the Yeluohe to push past the front line, they first needed to get through the millions of soldiers from their own side.
But the heavily armored Yeluohe appeared to not even see the fleeing alliance soldiers.
An Eastern Turkic soldier holding the front line saw the Yeluohe emerging from the rear, and became confused, his face turning blank. Before he could react, one of the Yeluohe galloped over, and with a crash, the Eastern Turkic soldier was sent flying a thousand feet, seeming to be as light as a feather.
The Eastern Turkic soldier miserably screamed, and before his body had even crashed into the ground, his organs had been pulverized, bloody mist gushing out from the chinks in his armor.
The alliance army fell into disarray at this sight.
The Youzhou soldiers were somewhat better off, as they had known long ago that the Yeluohe were powerful and cruel, appearing inhuman, but their allies were unaware.
Boom! Boom! Boom! The thirty thousand Yeluohe smashed through all the alliance soldiers in their way. In just a few seconds, tens of thousands of alliance soldiers had been thrown into the air, and the Yeluohe continued without slowing down, leaving behind a terrifying trail of gore in their wake.
“Get back, quickly!”
The tens of thousands of soldiers became a rain of blood that sent fear through the hearts of the alliance army. The Eastern Turks, Goguryeons, Xi, Khitans… even the Youzhou soldiers swiftly retreated to the sides.
A path swiftly appeared in front of the Yeluohe.
Meanwhile, Cui Qianyou, who had been commanding the Allheaven Fiend Scourge Formation in resisting the Nine Heavens Ten Earths God-Devil Annihilation Formation, suddenly felt an icy energy coming up behind him, and his face instantly paled.
“Withdraw!” Cui Qianyou roared.
The Yeluohe had always been a secret that Youzhou kept from the alliance. An Lushan and Gao Shang had maintained the secrecy of the Yeluohe, but Cui Qianyou had known.
No one understood more than him the power of the Yeluohe. This was an invincible army, an unkillable army.
They had no human emotions, and the concept of allies did not exist in their minds.
Anyone that stood in their way, even soldiers from Youzhou, would be slaughtered to the man!
Moreover, it currently seemed that the thirty thousand Yeluohe were the key to destroying the Nine Heavens Ten Earths God-Devil Annihilation Formation.
Rumble! The moment Cui Qianyou gave the order, the several hundred thousand soldiers forming the Allheaven Fiend Scourge Formation receded like the tide, rumbling backward and ignoring the Tang army.
The two armies had been at a stalemate, and in such a critical moment, retreating was extremely fatal.
But Cui Qianyou couldn’t worry about such things.
If they didn’t retreat now, then when the thirty thousand Yeluohe arrived, the Allheaven Fiend Scourge Formation would cease to exist.
“All soldiers, defensive formation! Prepare to retreat!”
Surprisingly, when Cui Qianyou’s Youzhou army began to retreat, the Tang army to the south did not pursue. On the contrary, other than some soldiers forming a defensive line at the front, the rest of the army began to retreat toward the fortress.
The army entirely retreating was impossible. Some soldiers had to remain to hold the line!
Five thousand feet!
Three thousand feet!
The Yeluohe were far faster than any other cavalry forces. It didn’t seem like they even had a maximum speed, and in just a few moments, the Yeluohe had easily surpassed the natural restrictions that many cavalry faced. The warhorses beneath them did not seem to be affected by physical factors.
Even before the Yeluohe had arrived, the gale they had stirred slammed into the faces of the soldiers, the wind cutting at them like sharp blades.
One thousand feet!
The howling winds battered the Tang defense line. The soldiers could even see the pale white skin and the white hairs between the chinks in the armor of the Yeluohe.
Their almost tangible killing intent exerted an immense pressure on all of them.
With a piercing howl, countless ballista bolts shot out from the rear.
Su Hanshan’s ballista army did not wait for the Nine Heavens Ten Earths God-Devil Annihilation Formation to trigger before unleashing a destructive salvo on the Yeluohe.
Not even the powerful Yeluohe could block ballista bolts, and the sharp bolts pierced straight through their armor.
A Yeluohe warrior had a fist-sized hole punched through its chest, the immense force carrying it off its horse.
Rows of the Yeluohe were shot down by ballista bolts, at least six thousand of them struck by this ‘destructive volley’.
Cheers erupted from the Tang ranks, but a few moments later, their excitement died away.
Cries of alarm came from the army.
As they looked at those Yeluohe who had been punched through by the ballista bolts, all of them saw something extremely odd…
Even though the Yeluohe had been struck by that destructive volley, no blood was flowing out of their bodies. It was like those ballista bolts that had punched through their bodies were just a minor itch to the Yeluohe.
“Impossible! How could this be?”
“Just what are these things?”
In the rear, Su Hanshan, who was ready to order the next volley, suddenly scowled, his heart sinking.
