“What? That quickly? How did they pull it off?” Crazy Magic asked in disbelief, clear shock on his face.
One could imagine just how difficult it would be for 3,000 players to infiltrate a heavily guarded stronghold without attracting any attention!
“They had Nirvana Flame and two other Thieves sneak into the Magic Prison Stronghold before having their Arcane Mages teleport over to them with Group Teleport Scrolls. After that, the Arcane Mages opened up a Transfer Gate to bring the rest of the people over. They all made it inside,” the Arcane Mage explained. This was something their informant had witnessed first hand.
The cup Crazy Magic held in his hand trembled. Nirvana Flame was truly crafty He could even come up with a method like this. Several conditions needed to be fulfilled to achieve this kind of result.The first was a top class Thief that could infiltrate an enemy’s stronghold without being discovered. The second was several Group Teleport Scrolls. These scrolls were extremely rare and hard to come by. They were a drop in a Level 50 Specialist dungeon, but clearing it was incredibly difficult. It seemed like only Asskickers United had been successful so far.
Nirvana Flame was quite merciless, employing this sort of method. This kind of sneak attack was almost impossible to defend against. It seemed like the Magic Prison Stronghold was destined to fall.
“Why did you get this information only now?” Crazy Magic frowned. He was dissatisfied with their intelligence network. If they had learned about this sooner, he could’ve given Eternal an advanced warning and made them owe him a favour.
“Nirvana Flame was too thorough with his preparations. Before the operation was carried out, only the dozen or so players closest to him knew of the entire plan. Most of their players only learned about it after the fact. I reported to you as soon as we got the information,” the Arcane Mage explained nervously. If Crazy Magic was in a bad mood, he was done for.
“Forget it.” Crazy Magic waved his hand. Nirvana Flame probably had safeguards in place to keep sensitive information from leaking out.
“Should we notify Eternal?” the Arcane Mage asked.
“Notify Eternal? What good would that do? Nirvana Flame and his 3,000 players are already inside the Magic Prison Stronghold. So long as the transfer point is bombarded with AoE magic, who would dare to teleport over? Since Nirvana Flame has planned this far ahead, he probably knows there are spies within the 3,000 players too. He won’t give Eternal any time to react. By the time we notify them, the Magic Prison Stronghold will have already fallen. Not to mention the 20 minutes plus it would take for Eternal to send over reinforcements. Those small fries holding the Magic Prison Stronghold stand no chance against Asskickers United’s elites. It’s like a fox sneaking into the henhouse!” Crazy Magic exclaimed. He could easily imagine how today would play out. Asskickers United had no use for the Magic Prison Stronghold. Rather than handing it back to Eternal, they would be better off destroying it, leaving it in ruin.
Over on the side of Eternal, the higher ups gathered in the conference hall were sweating bullets trying to guess the enemy’s next move. Given Asskickers United’s style, their first attack would be ruthless and decisive.
However, Asskickers United still hadn’t shown any sign of movement as of yet.
“Do you think they’re already outside one of our strongholds?” Skyfire Wing asked. He was just making wild guesses at this point.
Skyfire Wing’s words shook the hearts of everyone in the conference hall.
“Not good! Hurry and check if any other players snuck into our strongholds!!” Skyfire Apostle shot up from his seat.
“Are you saying…” Skyfire Wild Dragon said. At this moment, his face paled as he received word from the players below him.
Asskickers United were sighted inside of the Magic Prison Stronghold!
Recalling how the Asskickers United players in Kavodin had suddenly disappeared, even an idiot could put two and two together!
The 3,000 players from Asskickers United were already inside the Magic Prison Stronghold!
At this moment, Asskickers United had already blown the war horn. The 3,000 players spread out to every strategic location within the Magic Prison Stronghold. The Thieves snuck into the arrow towers, ambushing the players inside. The stronghold was in a state of utter and complete chaos. None of the Eternal players could put up a resistance. The rest of the Asskickers United players didn’t lag behind either, closely following behind the Thieves and flooding into the arrow towers. Their concentrated firepower completely suppressed the players of Eternal.
In a short time, a bloodbath took place in the Magic Prison Stronghold.
Tang Yao led 20 Mages in occupying the stronghold’s transfer point.
The transfer point was simple and crude. It was roughly three by three meters. With a flash of light, the first batch of players from Eternal emerged. There were roughly 30 of them.
As soon as they stepped foot out of the transfer point, they were greeted by the mocking smiles of the 20 Mages from Asskickers United.
“You’ve kept us waiting long enough!” Tang Yao laughed.
Just as these Eternal players wanted to do something, they sensed the magic fluctuate in the air above them. Flames poured down from the sky, ruthlessly engulfing them in a raging blaze. They let out shrill screams as they were transformed into rays of light.
With 20 Mages taking turns attacking the transfer point with AoE magic, the Eternal players were helpless. As soon as they teleported over, they were dead. After 200 players died, no one came over anymore. They understood it didn’t matter how many people came, they would only serve as food for Tang Yao and the others.
With the transfer point locked down, the Magic Prison Stronghold was isolated.
Asskickers United was outnumbered by Eternal three to five. However, in the face of players dozens of times stronger than them, Eternal could only flee like rats. Asskickers United left no place unturned as they swept through the entire stronghold.
Nie Yan, Sun, and King of the World took the lead, charging from arrow tower to arrow tower and slaughtering all enemy players in their path.
Nie Yan didn’t know how many players the black flames of Zennarde’s Sword had already engulfed. He only knew no one could withstand its might. No one could survive his blade. Cloth and leather armored targets were killed in an instant. Though some plate armoured Warriors could survive more than one hit, they were still far slower and lower level than him. Anyone he set his sights on had no hope of escaping.
The Magic Prison Stronghold became a slaughterhouse. After the arrow towers were taken over by the Thieves of Asskickers United, the crossbows inside were turned on the players of Eternal. Chapter 94: Annihilating Everyone
Avoiding the middle-aged man’s great sword, Jian Chen appeared in front of the other mercenaries with his Light Wind Sword, stabbing out multiple times in unbroken succession. At the same time, the mercenaries raised their Saint Weapons one after another to swing at him.
“Ding ding ding!”
The noise of many weapons colliding could be heard. In a brief moment, Jian Chen used an unimaginably fast speed to slash out dozens of times, causing the Saint Weapons that the mercenaries attacked him with to deviate from their original trajectories. Afterwards, Jian Chen’s actions contained no hesitation as the Light Wind Sword in his hand emitted an indistinct sword glow. Taking advantage of the moment where the mercenaries were trying to bring their Saint Weapons in their hands back under control, the Light Wind Sword once again transformed into dozens of silvery white flashes that pierced outwards.
“Pf!” “Pf!” “Pf!”
In that short moment, Jian Chen’s Light Wind Sword stabbed out three times, each one accurately hitting the throats of three different mercenaries. Their bodies went rigid immediately as their throats started to leak blood, dying their necks red. Slowly, their bodies fell to the ground.
At that moment, a sharp sound carrying a strong amount of power pierced the air, whooshing in from the side. Sensing this strength that suddenly appeared out of nowhere, Jian Chen immediately turned around and shifted toward the side by two meters. But before Jian Chen could get to the side safely, another surge of wind came at Jian Chen and arrived right in front of him in a blink of an eye.
Jian Chen’s face didn’t change at all as he brought his Light Wind Sword to block the frontal attack.
A huge sword heavily smashed against Jian Chen’s Light Wind Sword, causing Jian Chen to fly back uncontrollably by quite a few meters.
As Jian Chen flew through the air, a long silver spear chased after Jian Chen’s heart with an ear piercing whistle.
Sensing that the silver spear had a great amount of Saint Force within it, Jian Chen grew solemn as he saw the second Saint Master had finally taken action.
Jian Chen stamped down onto the ground fiercely, leaving a deep footprint as he forcibly stopped his body from continuously retreating backwards, His right hand shook as his Light Wind Sword slashed at the spear in front of him without fear.
The tips of the Light Wind Sword and spear collided into each other in midair. Seeing this, Jian Chen’s eyes flashed coldly as an intense amount of Sword Qi escaped from his sword. It transmitted through the spear toward the 30 year old man.
Catching on to what Jian Chen was planning, the 30 year old man sneered. Following after, an enormous amount of Saint Force came flooding out from his body, coursing along the spear toward the Light Wind Sword. It stopped Jian Chen’s Sword Qi in the spear from moving any closer. Immediately afterwards, the Sword Qi momentarily stopped advancing forward due to the collision with the flood of Saint Force that moved like a galloping wild horse. This weakened its advancing speed.
Jian Chen’s eyes flashed dangerously as he began to increase the amount of energy to fight against the man. Immediately, an intense amount of Sword Qi surged outwards, smashing against the Saint Force of the other man without fear.
As Jian Chen’s unique Sword Qi made contact with the other mercenary’s Saint Force, a loud explosion was heard. The energy from the contact exploded outwards, with the colliding Saint Weapons as the epicenter.
The shock wave caused the two fighters to be blown backwards. With each step they traveled, the mercenary left a deep footprint from stepping heavily on the ground. However, Jian Chen’s body looked incomparably nimble. As his toes lightly made contact with the ground, he swayed momentarily before quickly shaking off that backwards momentum.
However, just as Jian Chen stabilized his body, a fierce force came from behind him and approached his body in a blink of an eye.
Jian Chen’s face changed slightly. Just from his recent encounter against that mercenary, he had used up a lot of energy. At the moment, he was lacking some strength, and was unable to gather enough Saint Force to resist the incredibly strong Saint Master’s attack from behind him. In a moment of desperation, Jian Chen rolled to the ground to evade, but even so, the great sword had landed a wound on his back, so deep that even the bone could be seen.
“Ha!” Seeing that he now had the upper hand, he raised his sword mercilessly once more to slash at Jian Chen.
Feeling a burning sharp sensation in his back, Jian Chen bit his lip as his left hand hit the floor. His entire body immediately flew upwards. Then, his body slightly twisted to the side, barely dodging the second sword stroke from the man by a hair. However, his Light Wind Sword flashed like a bolt of lightning as it pierced towards the older mercenary at an extremely fast speed.
The older man was alarmed. Since he had just swung his Saint Weapon, it was far too late for him to pull it back and defend himself. Forced by the desperate situation, the man tilted his head narrowly to dodge the sword piercing towards his throat. However, despite managing to dodge the fatal blow, the sword had still left a small nick on his neck that dripped with blood.
With a grim smile, Jian Chen twisted his wrist to allow his Light Wind Sword to chase after the other man’s neck once more, before the man could even react.
Immediately after the silver Light Wind Sword flashed across the man’s neck, his face became rigid as blood began to pulsate out of his neck in small waves.
“Y-you…” The man’s eyes opened wide as he looked at Jian Chen in disbelief. He strained to lift his hand, finger slowly shaking as it pointed at Jian Chen. It seemed as if he wanted to say something, but the wound on his neck prevented him from doing so. In the end, the man wordlessly collapsed on the ground.
Seeing the dead man, the remaining mercenaries could only be extremely shocked. They began to look at Jian Chen with expressions of extreme dread.
Upon killing the middle aged man, Jian Chen didn’t leave any time for the other mercenaries to catch their breaths. With his Light Wind Sword, he began to run towards the remaining people.
Seeing Jian Chen approach, the single remaining Saint Master mercenary moved forward to block him. With a thrust, his long spear immediately disappeared and reappeared in a blur towards Jian Chen.
The other Great Saint mercenaries had been intimidated by the death of the middle aged Saint Master, and were afraid of charging forward. The idea of retreating had already been planted within their hearts. If not for the other Saint Master level mercenary, then they would had already long since run away.
“Ding ding ding…”
A series of colliding sounds sung throughout the forest as Jian Chen and the 30 year old mercenary exchanged a dozen blows at a lightning fast speed in a brief moment. Now that there were no outside factors, Jian Chen’s Sword Qi had swiftly helped him take the advantage and completely suppressed the other person. In the blink of an eye, the youth was forced onto the defensive.
Because Jian Chen’s swordplay was far too fast, the 30 year old mercenary didn’t dare attack. Instead, he continued defending himself, reacting to Jian Chen’s movements. He was afraid that if he were to try to attack, then Jian Chen would be able to swiftly use that moment to kill him before the man could even complete the attack.
Not only that, but Jian Chen was fighting him at close range. The 30 year old mercenary wasn’t able to show off the true power of his long spear at such a short distance, so he was left with the feeling of having one arm tied behind his back.
After attaining the Great Saint level, Jian Chen’s battle strength had improved several times over. So with his current strength, he could contend against those a level higher than him on equal footing.
After a dozen high speed blows were exchanged, the two were finally split apart. However, the 30 year old man looked to be in a sorry state as his clothes were completely ruined by this point. A few parts of his body had deep looking wounds, and even his neck had a thin line from where Jian Chen had only barely cut apart the first layer of skin.
As for Jian Chen, besides the single wound on his back, he didn’t look very different. The only change was that his face had grown paler.
Staring at Jian Chen with a hardened face, the 30 year old mercenary said, “The enemy is far too strong! I’ll stall him while everyone else runs away!” After fighting Jian Chen, the 30 year old mercenary knew how fast and strong Jian Chen was. In the mercenary’s heart, he knew that it was possible he wouldn’t be leaving here alive, so he had to take the worst plan of action for himself.
He had realized another thing in his heart regarding the situation with the Silver Striped Golden Snake. For the sake of keeping this matter a secret, Jian Chen would definitely kill anyone that tried to leave this place. He wouldn’t let anyone spread details about the situation. If it was the mercenary who was in this situation, he would have done the same thing.
This was the rule for survival for the Tian Yuan Continent; everything was decided by the fist. Whoever was strongest would have the last laugh.
Hearing these words, the remaining mercenaries all started a bit before immediately running away from the area in all directions.
Seeing every mercenary scamper away, Jian Chen’s face darkened. He slashed his sword to try to kill the man quickly.
“Ah!” The 30 year old mercenary let loose a battle cry as he moved towards Jian Chen without fear. Because of the speed Jian Chen demonstrated, the man knew that it was unlikely that he would be leaving here alive. Rather than dying with everyone else, he had decided that it was better to use his life to garner some time for everyone else. Once the news of the Silver Striped Golden Snake was leaked out, there would be no shortage of people to avenge him.
The Light Wind Sword collided with the long spear once again, causing sparks to fly out between the two. Then, under the 30 year old mercenary’s control, the sword was flipped on top of the spear and was immediately sent flying into the air as he performed a move on instinct.
At this, the man looked on with shock. However, a joyous look soon appeared on his face as he immediately manipulated the spear to stab straight towards Jian Chen’s throat.
Jian Chen smiled in disdain as his palms suddenly filled with very strong Saint Force. Both palms disappeared into a blur, and his hands blurred as they shot out to grab onto the spear shaft tightly.
At the same time, the Light Wind Sword that had been knocked into the air suddenly stopped, as it began to pulse out a shroud of Sword Qi that enveloped the sword. With a large glow, the Light Wind Sword traveled through the air quickly, like a flash of light, appearing as if it could cut open a space in the air. With an ear piercing whistle, the sword bore through the man’s throat, disappearing into the nearby forest area.
Suddenly, the loud cries of a few people could be heard from within the forests.
The Soul Sword was Jian Chen’s last resort. Until it was the final moment, Jian Chen would not use it easily. Chapter 1233: Han Bing’s Divine Sword Technique

They saw an ancient black dragon and 1,000 ancient horned dragons above the hideous lady’s head.
The Heaven and Energy Phenomenon that was driven by the Heaven and Earth Energy with Origin Energy was the symbol of an Eighth Level Martial Monarch martial artist!
As multiple colors rose from the hideous lady’s body, Li Fei and Ke’er knew that she was performing the Profundities that she comprehended.
“Wait!” Li Fei stopped her while looking frightened.
“What? Do you have something to say before you die?” The hideous lady asked in her deep voice.
She was charging her Origin Energy and Profundities at the moment, and she was ready to kill Li Fei and Ke’er anytime now.
“Are you killing us just because we look better than you?” Li Fei asked after taking a deep breath.
“Looking better than me isn’t a crime. All alluring women should die!”
“What if it’s Martial Emperor You Han who’s attractive? What about those Martial Emperor’s disciples and direct disciples from You Han Valley? Given your ability, I bet the most you can do in You Han Valley is to threaten the Martial Emperor’s followers,” Li Fei proceeded.
“I’ll admit defeat to those alluring women who are more powerful than I am…. Those who are weaker should all die!” The hideous lady went on with her sophistry while speeding up at the same time, dashing towards Li Fei and Ke’er.
All of a sudden, Li Fei had a drastic change of expression. She just realized that the hideous lady before her was a complete lunatic who was messed up in her head!
“What? That quickly? How did they pull it off?” Crazy Magic asked in disbelief, clear shock on his face.
