MARTIAL PEAK 5517
The origins of these Holy Spirits were quite strange. They didn’t belong to either the No-Return Pass or the Holy Spirit Ancestral Land.
After interacting with them for a while, these Holy Spirits specifically called for Hua Qing Si from High Heaven Palace.
High Heaven Palace didn’t dare to be negligent, so Hua Qing Si immediately stepped forward. In the end, she learned that these Holy Spirits were all brought out by Yang Kai from the Great Ruins Boundary.
When this news spread, the entire Human Race became excited.
Right now, the Human Race was facing a lack of troops, so the sudden appearance of these hundred Holy Spirits would undoubtedly provide great assistance to the Human Race.
Everyone thought this was a powerful reinforcement.
However, to everyone’s surprise, these Holy Spirits didn’t have any intention of fighting side by side with the Human Race after arriving in the Star Boundary. Instead, they remained in the Star Boundary, relying on their status as Holy Spirits to act arrogantly.
In the end, it was Fu Guang, who was in seclusion to recuperate, who stepped forward and ruthlessly threatened them, causing them to restrain themselves.
Hua Qing Si also mediated between these hundred or so Holy Spirits who had come from the Great Ruins Boundary, so they were barely usable. However, they didn’t respect anyone’s orders, so if there was anything the Human Race needed them to do, they had to discuss it in advance. Whether they went or not was up to them.
Although many of these Holy Spirits were not as powerful as they had expected, these hundred Holy Spirits were still a force to be reckoned with.
Currently, all of the Holy Spirits had been arranged into several teams. They weren’t responsible for guarding any domain battlefields, but if any Territory was in dire straits, the Head Office would dispatch them to assist them. This way, they would be able to display their greatest strength.
In the past, there had been a few times when the Human Race’s line of defense had almost been breached, but the Holy Spirits had suddenly appeared and saved the situation. It could be said that the Holy Spirits had played a great role in allowing the Human Race to barely defend these dozen or so Great Domains.
Therefore, when he heard Wei Junyang say that he had already sent a message to the Head Office to request reinforcements from the Holy Spirits, Ouyang Lie felt relieved.
But soon, he became worried again, “Could the Holy Spirits who came to support us have come from the Great Ruins Boundary?”
If it was that group of Holy Spirits, it would be far less reliable than the Holy Spirit from the No-Return Pass and Hoy Spirit Ancestral Land.
Wei Junyang shook his head and replied, “I’m not sure. There aren’t many Holy Spirits now, only six teams in total. The Head Office needs to consider transferring one of the Holy Spirit team to assist them.”
While the two of them were talking, a sudden change occurred on the battlefield. Although the Human Race’s front line was in a precarious situation, it was still able to barely contend with the Black Ink Clan. However, at this moment, more than a dozen powerful auras suddenly erupted from all over the battlefield. Caught off guard, the Human Race’s Battleships were destroyed one after another, and the Open Heaven cultivators were killed one after another. In the dozen or so directions, the Black Ink Clan’s forces surged forward like a tide.
Wei Junyang and Ouyang Lie, who were currently healing their injuries, suddenly stood up, both of them wearing ugly expressions.
Ouyang Lie even cursed angrily, “What the hell are those people from the Head Office doing? More than a dozen Territory Lords have come to support the enemy, but there’s actually no news for our side?”
On the Mysterious Nether Territory's battlefield, although there was a difference in the number of Eighth Order Human Race and Black Ink Clan Territory Lords, there was not much of a difference. Both sides were able to restrain each other, but these dozen or so auras that suddenly appeared were extremely unfamiliar. Obviously, they were all newcomers who had never appeared on the battlefield before.
Although there weren’t many Territory Lords, all of them were powerful Innate Territory Lords. If they suddenly attacked, it was very likely they would destroy the Human Race’s defensive line.
Wei Junyang’s expression also became ugly as he said in a low voice, “They may not have come from the other domains. Some of the Territory Lords were seriously injured and disappeared. The Head Office speculated that they must have gone back to the No-Return Pass to recuperate. After all, there are many Royal Lord-level Ink Nest over there, so it’s more convenient for them to recuperate. These Territory Lords… it’s very likely they came from there.”
Currently, in the various battlefields, the two races’ high-level combatants were competing with each other. If any of the Territory Lords were missing, it would be impossible for the Head Office to not receive any news.
Since the Head Office hadn’t sent a message, it meant that they didn’t know anything about the appearance of these dozen new Territory Lords.
These Territory Lords had most likely come from the No-Return Pass, and now that they had entered this place, it was obvious that they wanted to defeat the Human Race of the Mysterious Nether Territory and occupy this Great Domain.
The two Eighth Order Human Race masters no longer cared about healing themselves and instead flew up into the sky, each of them finding a target to kill.
At the same time, the aura of an Eighth Order Human Race master erupted from all directions.
However, whether it was Wei Junyang or Ouyang Lie, both of them knew that this time, the Mysterious Nether Territory was likely doomed. The reinforcements of more than a dozen powerful Innate Territory Lords were enough to crush the Mysterious Nether Army’s defensive line.
In this current situation, the Mysterious Nether Army could not retreat no matter what. On the road to retreat, they would only suffer even more casualties. Only by repelling the Black Ink Clan’s attack would they have a chance to retreat.
Fight to the death!
For the Human Race, such a situation had occurred too many times, so even if the situation was dire, the momentum of the Human Race’s army would not decrease.
Suddenly, the two races’ masters began to clash, and with the support of the Black Ink Clan’s masters, the Black Ink Clan’s army also began to push forward. Countless dazzling lights began to flicker, illuminating this massive void in a dazzling light.
In just half a day, more than thirty percent of the three hundred thousand Human Race soldiers stationed here had fallen, and even two of the Eighth Order Open Heaven had been killed.
Although the two Eighth Order masters had exploded before their deaths, they had only seriously injured their opponents.
Not a single Innate Territory Lord had died!
When had the Human Race ever suffered such a great loss? Two Eighth Order masters had fallen, causing everyone to go crazy.
Somewhere on the battlefield, Ouyang Lie spat out a mouthful of blood, but he didn’t retreat in the slightest and continued to attack with his saber. He was already injured and his strength was no longer at the peak, so how could he be a match for the Innate Territory Lord?
His savagery made the Innate Territory Lord somewhat wary. If not for this, he would have captured Ouyang Lie long ago.
However, the Territory Lord wasn’t in a hurry. Now that the Human Race was on the decline, they had basically won this battle, so there was no need for him to risk his life fighting Ouyang Lie. Even if he had to delay, he could at least drag him to death!
Not to mention… when comparing the number of Eighth Order Human Race and Black Ink Clan Territory Lords, the Black Ink Clan had the absolute advantage.
After fighting for a while longer, this Territory Lord suddenly flashed a sly smile towards Ouyang Lie. When this smile appeared in his eyes, Ouyang Lie’s heart couldn’t help pounding as he secretly cursed.
At this moment, a sharp killing intent suddenly swept over from the side, and the Territory Lord on the other side also attacked.
At this moment of life and death, Ouyang Lie didn’t retreat, instead spitting out a mouthful of blood essence onto his long blade, causing it to immediately release a dazzling light.
As the two sides brushed past each other, blood spurted from Ouyang Lie’s chest and abdomen while a bone-deep wound appeared on the Territory Lord’s neck.
The Territory Lord’s face suddenly became gloomy. Just now, he had nearly died under the other party’s blade. An Eighth Order Human Race… really couldn’t be underestimated.
Ouyang Lie slowly turned around and looked at his opponent. At this moment, another Innate Territory Lord had appeared beside him, the one who had ambushed him just now.
In a one-on-one battle, Ouyang Lie was no longer an opponent, let alone one against two.
What a pity!
Ouyang Lie sighed in his heart. If he had been able to kill his enemy just now, he would have died a worthy death, but now, he probably wouldn’t have had a chance.
Turning his head to look around, he saw that Wei Junyang was also dragging his injured body, fighting one against two, falling into a disadvantageous position, with even more Eighth Order cultivators facing a desperate situation.
After this battle, how many people from the Mysterious Nether Army would survive?
Ouyang Lie’s eyes had already been blurred by blood, and in his vision, the two Territory Lords were clearly not willing to waste any more time and had already begun attacking from both sides.
“You want to kill me? I will take you down with me!” Ouyang Lie madly laughed as the long blade in his hand suddenly shattered, transforming into thousands of blade lights that covered the entire sky.
This was a treasure he had cultivated for many years, and now that it had shattered on its own, its power was extremely terrifying.
The two Territory Lords who were attacking immediately felt a sense of crisis and quickly retreated. Ouyang Lie took this opportunity to close in on his first opponent and used his killer moves to beat him up.
But that was all!
As he attacked, Ouyang Lie’s momentum rapidly fell, and after a moment, how could he still have his previous momentum? Seeing this, the two Territory Lords knew that their opportunity had arrived, so they both used their Secret Techniques to attack.
Ouyang Lie’s figure swayed and he wanted to dodge, but there was nothing he could do. Letting out a long sigh, he thought that this was good. For hundreds of years, the Human Race had been constantly retreating, he was no longer willing to retreat. Dying here might be his best option.
Ouyang Lie was constantly overdrawing his strength, causing his consciousness to become somewhat blurry, so much so that he seemed to be hallucinating.
A low sound rang out as Ouyang Lie’s figure suddenly became distorted, as if he had entered a different space. The attacks of the two Innate Territory Lords directly pierced through Ouyang Lie’s blurry body, causing him to spit out a mouthful of blood but unable to kill him.
Just as they were in a daze, a thick murderous intent enveloped them.
From a distance, a golden stream of light tore through the void like a shooting star, piercing through the battlefield behind the Black Ink Clan army. Wherever it passed, the entire Black Ink Clan fell into chaos.
In the blink of an eye, the golden stream of light had arrived in front of them. Mysterious forces intertwined as a spear light rapidly expanded in the vision of a Black Ink Clan Territory Lord.
The aura of death enveloped him, causing the Territory Lord to turn pale with fright. Just as he was about to counterattack, he felt a sharp pain in his head, causing his rich Ink Force to tremble.
As the spear shot out, the head of the powerful Innate Territory Lord was directly pierced through and his aura withered!
The sudden change only lasted for a moment before the other Territory Lord’s face changed drastically. Looking up, he saw a cold-faced young man slowly withdraw his spear. With a wave of his hand, the space around him fluctuated and the heavily injured Eighth Order man beside him disappeared without a trace.
As their eyes met, the young man coldly asked, “What have you all been doing during my absence?”
As soon as he finished speaking, the space froze and the Innnate Territory Lord’s soul nearly left his body. A Ninth Order Human Race? Didn’t they say that the only two Ninth Order Ninth Order masters had been restrained?
Where did this Ninth Order come from?
However, upon closer inspection, the other party only had the aura of an Eighth Order Open Heaven, causing the Territory Lord to be somewhat confused.
An Eighth Order Open Heaven could instantly kill an Innate Territory Lord? What kind of joke is this!
