“The zombies are too many, it will be difficult to break through them,” Councilman Zhu Meng’s voice came from above.
Mo Fan looked up and saw Zhu Meng and his mighty pair of stunning fiery wings flying above.
In addition to that, he was also wearing the same lightning armor he had worn during the battle in Hangzhou. The purple lightning flickering on the metallic surface turned him into a sky knight of Lightning and Fire. As the Imperial Magicians were advancing on foot, a flying phantom would fall from the sky to the ground almost every second, and that was in fact Zhu Meng’s doing!
He did not summon his Spear Equipment this time. Otherwise, the lightning spear would further enhance his image as a lightning-fire flying knight…
“Don’t worry, I got it! Green Eye, let’s go!” said a familiar voice, who turned out to be Senior Hunter Du Xiao.
There was a huge roar, the people on the trembling ground quickly stepped to the side. Mo Fan turned to his side and saw a gigantic blue beast moving past him. The runes on its skin were astonishing. Its muscles were as huge as boulders, its entire body was displaying an overwhelming sense of explosiveness!
Looking up again, Mo Fan saw a man standing on the head of the beast. His hair was drifting in the wind, and his black eyes flickered coldly. The overwhelming number of zombies was nowhere enough to destroy the man’s determination!
The beast lunged forward, smashing the smaller zombies, and rammed into a Corpse General with its giant horns. The Corpse General that was as strong as an ox was punctured by the horns, before it was sent flying into the distance with blood splattering in the air.
Behind Du Xiao and his beast Green Eye, a bunch of Summoned Beasts appeared out of nowhere. Those around four meters tall were Blood-rune Savage Wolves, a White-armor Battle Beetle, aRock-seal Devil, and a Scorpion-tailed Scaled Beast. As for those over five meters, or even ten meters tall, they were the Banyan Demon General, Tyrant Snow Spirit, Rampage Blood Bird…
Du Xiao’s Green Eye was the commander of the Summoned Beasts on the ground. The beasts charged forward and could instantly kill most of the zombies with a single bite or claw swipe. In comparison, the Green Eye was a lot fiercer. The impact produced from a single stomp would turn over a hundred zombies into minced meat. A single swipe of its claw would knock the zombies into the fresh cracks in the ground!
The zombies were poisonous and had no fear of dying. The Magicians would have a hard time utilizing their Magic after they were surrounded. Even when they were firing their Spells continuously to blast the zombies, those that managed to escape from the net would still drag their remaining body parts toward the Magicians. The Summoned Beasts were the perfect solution to tear the zombie walls apart. The clumsy zombies were no match for the fierce Summoned Beasts when it came to close combat!
The thick zombie walls were soon torn open by the Summoned Beasts. Meanwhile, the firepower of the Rampage Blood Bird in the air was on par with Du Xiao’s Green Eye. Mo Fan could not see who was riding the bird as it kept flying right above the army, but every attack it executed would kill over a hundred zombies too…
The Rampage Blood Bird was not the kind that attacked from range. It was a savage predator. During its flight, it would suddenly glow crimson and glide right above the zombies. Flickers of light followed, and blood-colored slashes would appear randomly across the place, each over ten meters long. The sound of the zombies being shredded was audible, and once it came to an end, the limbs, heads, and bodies were suddenly scattered across the area.
“Our path behind is cut off,” said the commander with the Psychic Element. Some of the Magicians immediately turned around and saw the zombies stacking up across the battlefield now covered in white bones.
There were one and a half kilometers from the inner city, but half a kilometer was now covered in zombies. The number of zombies was indeed hard to deal with.
“Then we’ll just charge forward!”
“Forward, we’ll follow Senior Hunter Du Xiao!”
The resolution to break the cauldrons and sink the boats turned the army into a real battle axe, breaking through the walls of zombies with brute force. The gaps in the walls of zombies were filled with the Magicians holding tightly together to one another. The Summoned Beasts were in the front, followed by the Imperial Magicians. The Battlemages were on the side, while the others were protecting the rear!
Finally, Du Xiao’s Green Eye was the first to regroup with the Super Magicians who were appointed as the vanguards. The four Super Magicians were bold and powerful, they had managed to clear the path of thistles and thorns for the troop behind them…
“Where’s Wang Kai?” Du Xiao saw the Super Magicians, but there were only three of them.
“He went ahead to lure a few Corpse Officials away, but it’s likely that he was surrounded by the undead. He should be in that direction, but his situation is grim,” said Commander Yao Ting.
“Should we lend him a hand?”
“We’re running out of time, forward!” said Han Ji.
“But…” Du Xiao was slightly hesitant. It was too irrational to give up on a Super Magician even from the standpoint of their army.
“It’s coming,” said Han Ji sternly.
Du Xiao was stunned for a moment. He raised his head and immediately saw a black mountain in the middle of the undead’s army. The zombies were weaving through between its ankles!
Du Xiao was lost in thought after witnessing the shocking scene!
No wonder Han Ji said that they were running out of time, the Mountain Zombie was making its way toward them!
The real dominator among the undead, even the Super Magicians would shiver after taking a single glance at the creature!
“So that’s the creature from the same era as the Black Totem Snake…” Mo Fan looked up, yet he could only see the Mountain Zombie’s legs, like pillars poking into the sky. The creature could easily destroy a whole street with a single stomp. It could even punch a skyscraper to the ground!
When the creature caught up, the formation of their army would simply be destroyed, leading to lots of casualties among the Magicians!
They would have to utilize the efficiency of the formation to advance a few hundred meters more while they could still use it. They were only two kilometers away from the Dark Abyss…
With a mighty stomp, a deep footprint was left on the ground. The zombies that did not escape in time were slammed to the ground. The Mountain Zombie’s movements looked slow, but it was actually catching up to the Magicians!
Another stomp occurred. The impact from it spread to where the Magicians were, as the ground began to crack open.
“My God, is that really something humans stand a chance against?”
“The Mountain Zombie, it’s coming!”
“We’re smaller than cockroaches in its eyes…”
They had yet to encounter the super creatures that could easily crush their determination. The Magicians began to lose their minds when they saw the Mountain Zombie. The pressure it was inflicting on them had simply turned their faith and hope to nothing!
