Abe the Wizard - Chapter 954
The first batch of tree men approached the Holy knights. Hundreds of them charged forward, and they grabbed mud and rocks to attack.
The mud didn’t do damage but blocked the knight’s vision while the rocks did the damage.
The rocks shot from the tree men’s giant hands. They were like stone-throwing machines.
Although the rocks weren’t big compared to the tree men, they were huge boulders to the knights.
Holy energy emerged from the knight formation as rocks struck upon it. At the same time, mud was splattered everywhere, filling the space with grey dust.
Some tree men had arrived in the knight’s range, and frost emerged from the knight’s bodies.
It was the Holy Freeze Aura in action. However, those tree men had some special abilities. They were all at least 500 years old and had the tree of life’s life force, so each of them had an extremely strong defense.
Throughout their lives, they had countless hardships in their environment, so they disregarded the forest and kept making their way forward to the knights.
An 800 years old tree made contact with the knights, and its giant hand slammed down from its 15 meters tall body.
All of a sudden, tens of Holy knights had no way to counteract.
Slash! The light sword of the knights sliced off the arm of the tree man.
However, a green glow sparkled on its body, and its arm was regenerated in just a few seconds.
This was the scary thing about tree men. As long as they kept their contact with the ground, they were indestructible. Unless their entire body was destroyed completely, they could use energy from the earth to regenerate.
They lost a few seconds to attack, but this kind of regeneration was already very quick for a branch. If a root was damaged, it would take much longer.
Tree men don’t feel any pain, so attacked without hesitation with its newly generated arm.
The knights repeat their counterattack, but in the end, the tree men still managed to regenerate. Due to their powerful defense, the knights’ light sword could only slice their branches, not their roots.
In reality, tree men were not invincible. Big-scale fire attacks could destroy most of them.
A wizard’s firewall spell could burn those tree men into ash, but luckily, the knights did not have any mass attack fire spells. They could inject fire elements onto their attacks but not create an actual fire.
It was only a matter of time until the tree men regenerated. None of the knights were able to kill any.
More and more tree men joined the battle, and it became a stale back and forth between the 2 sides. The tree men could not break the knights’ defense, but the knights could not kill those tree men either.
Still, it was only a matter of life until the knights lost the battle. It would be a problem for them to even escape. More and more tree men charged in from 20 miles. With tens of thousands of them, they were basically invincible.
Ironically, the knights destroyed trees on their way and were now being attacked by trees.
“Everyone, let’s destroy the tree of life. Maybe that will make the tree men stop!” Mad knight Mead turned to the 3 mad knights and said.
Although each of them could slice a tree man in half, they could not kill them. With the help of so many tree men, it was only a matter of life until they recovered.
They knew they had no choice. If they continued like this, they would die in their formation.
Even as the most long-lasting profession, the knights could only take so many hits before all their energy was drained.
They only had around 1 hour left before their troops would deteriorate. Once it happened, the tree men would be able to start their massacre.
A moment ago, they saw a tree man grab a top-level holy knight after using ‘revenge’ to attack the tree man’s roots.
Then he unleashed 3 combo attacks with ice, fire, and lightning, which cut on the tree man. The fire directly left a burnt mark on its root.
However, that holy knight was soon caught and wrapped tight by the tree man’s branches. In a few short breaths, his face turned old and dried up.
A pure white soul beam shot up, which sent a message to the knights. If they didn’t change their tactics, they would end up as tree fertilizer.
They were in the elve’s territory, so they couldn’t stay for long. Once the elves’ support arrived, they would be killed.
“On command, Mr. Mead!” The 3 mad knights replied.
4 of them quickly changed out of their formation and disregarded the tree men. As they sped, they slowed the tree men with the Holy Freeze. They soon arrived at the valley entrance.
The last grey bear blocked in front of the 4 big druids as top-level spells rained down.
“Everyone, let me hold them down!” Big druid Lendo yelled and turned into a giant bear as he speeded to the side of the grey bear.
“Big druid Lendo, catch!” Abel took out a portal bag and threw it forward.
Big druid Lendo caught the bag with his giant bear claws and scanned them with his power of the will. There were 400 Light healing potions within. He felt so relieved.
“Thank you, master Bennett!” His voice was still clear, even in a bear form.
Mad knight Mead was about to make contact with the grey bear and Big Druid Lendo, but he decided to attack Big Druid Lendo first.
He charged through the shockwave of the giant bear, which made him feel a little dizzy, but the purify aura of his teammate quickly woke him up again.
At the same time, another mad knight turned towards the grey beat and viciously struck down.
“Demon claw, come at me!” Big druid Lendo roared as he slashed towards the long sword of Mad knight Mead. The flame on the sword burned his skin, and it soon slashed open his claw.
He scanned with his power of the will, and a bottle of light healing potion appeared in front of him.
He bit down, and the blue liquid poured into his mouth. The wounds on his hand immediately recovered.
Mad knight Mead’s second and third attacks were all blocked by big druid Lendo. All it took was a few more light healing potions.
At the same time, he was keeping an eye on the grey bear. From time to time, he would throw a light healing potion in its mouth.
A ‘Bearman transformation spell’ could allow a druid to turn into a Bearman. Although it was not as fast as a werewolf, its defense was on a whole other level.
Although Big Druid Lendo could not fully block Mad knight Mead’s attack in his bear form, he could sustain for some time with those insane light healing potions since it wouldn’t generate any side effects like other healing potions.
However, he still had a limited amount of potions on hand.
Abel kept his eyes on the battlefield. The tree men were starting to dominate the knights. As soon as the knights’ energy began to drop, the tree men would be able to break their formation and take the win.
The 4 mad knights and the 5 big druids, wounds kept emerging from Big Druid Lendo and the grey bear but quickly recovered with the light healing potion.
The knights disregarded the spells from the other druids and kept viciously attacking. Maybe in less than a minute, all of Big Druid Lendo’s light healing potion would be used up.
“Tree of life. The battle is not looking good. Do you have any more ideas?” Abel connected to the tree of life through the contract.
He was almost helpless against the knights; he couldn’t even get close to them.
The valley entrance was tight, so Dolf couldn’t unleash its full potential, so it was better to stay as the last shield and protect Lorraine.
Without exposing his identity, asking the tree of life was his only option.
Since he was in one with the tree of life, the tree of life directly transferred another spell pattern.
It was just as complicated as the last one, and the tree of life did not explain what the pattern did. Maybe it was growing desperate!
Abel ignited his world stone ability again and grasped the spell pattern in no time. He began to draw, but this time the tree of life did not lend him any energy.
After he finished his last stroke, he sensed the transparent energy within his druid soul turned into a natural force that sifted into the pattern.
Afterward, the spell pattern expanded and wrapped around him.
Abel felt the blood within him gushing as sharp pain emerged. It was almost like every muscle in his body stretched, and every piece of bone was crushed and reformed again.
It was almost like the dragon energy within his soul had woken up and began to roar in madness. Soon, his body began to stretch.
He clenched his jaw tight so Lorraine couldn’t hear him scream. It was almost like his teeth were about to break.
He sensed a strange energy stretching out his body. The natural energy within his druid soul began to drain. He was already rank 20, but it was still far not enough to sustain the transformation.
Everything suddenly stopped, and for a second and Abel thought his transformation had failed. However, an ocean of life force soon gushed in from the branch that he was touching.
That life force continued to stretch out his body, and he slowly sensed his skin thickened as scales emerged.
His hands and feet turn into claws. Those claws were glowing with a strange energy, which only reflected how powerful they were.
A long tail emerged from behind, and his head began to change shape with 2 dragon horns poking out.
He felt a sharp pain of skin tearing from his back. 2 wings penetrated his skin and began to grow.
At that moment, a new spell pattern emerged from his skill tree called drag on transformation. It was one of those special transformation spells of a Druid.
However, there were 2 prerequisites about this spell that normal druids could not achieve.
One, a dragon bloodline was a must. The more concentrated your dragon blood was, the bigger you would be as a dragon. Since Abel was recognized by blue dragon Emmanuel, you could just imagine how concentrated the dragon blood within him was.
Second, the first transformation needed large amounts of natural force, and the force needed to become a dragon was far greater than a Bearman or werewolf.
