In Dragon City on the Musical House island.
Clip-clop, clip-clop, clip-clop…
On the city wall that was made of magma and the reefs that had been well-tempered by the waves, a heavy multi-barreled machine gun was firing crazily through an opening about ten meters from the ground.
The burning metal bullets, with the smell of powder, revolved and dashed more than a kilometer, before they hit a gigantic bull that was more than thirty meters tall and seemed to be made of gold!
Clang, clang, clang!
As the sparks splashed out, the bullets that were made of bronze were all shattered.
The golden bull that was more than thirty meters tall, however, didn’t seem hurt at all.
Above the machine gun, a Flood Dragon’s Eye Cannon, who could pose a lethal threat even on an Extraordinary Rank-7 target, fired a cannonball the size of an adult’s fist after a dull explosion towards a one-horned rhino that was as large as the golden bull but in a deep green color a hundred meters away!
After the fire and smoke caused by the intense explosion dispersed, the deep green rhino that was thirty meters tall turned out to be absolutely unscathed, and it moved to Dragon City steadily along with the golden bull.
Observing from a wider perspective, it could be found that, altogether, 28 behemoths had appeared in the four directions of Dragon City, behind its walls that were about one kilometer long and fifteen meters tall.
One of them was a Flood Dragon more than a hundred meters long that had a horn similar to the rhino’s and seemed to be made of wood.
There was also a giant ape that seemed exclusively made of water and had arms bigger than the city gate, a radiant horse whose eyes were like stars and whose body emanated the brilliance of the sun, and a red fox whose fur was all burning like fire and who had a moon pattern on its chest.
On the city wall that was about fifteen meters wide, Qin Yueyun, holding the Golden Crow Bow, ran quickly while she fetched a light arrow that was made of Radiant Gold Bow from the Infinite Quiver that could transform materials into Extraordinary arrows.
She laid the arrow on the bow and quickly shot it out. The arrow then turned into a golden three-legged crow covered in furious flames, before it hit the transparent yet gigantic water ape.
After a dull and intense noise of collision, the thirty-meter-tall water ape trembled, and a hole almost three meters in diameter was left on its head by the golden crow.
The light arrow inside the golden crow simply penetrated the hole and flew almost three hundred meters in midair!
As a result, the gigantic water ape was stunned for a moment.
But in the next moment, the gigantic water ape was moving again.
It slapped its head with a transparent arm as large as a house and squeezed the golden crow that was still burning. It then continued marching towards Dragon City.
The hole on its head was fully fixed in only a few seconds, although it didn’t seem as concrete as before.
“Hu… No, those behemoths are all too strong. They all have the power above Extraordinary Rank-8!”
After she stopped moving, Qin Yueyu was breathing heavily.
It must be noted that she was already Extraordinary Rank-8 and rated as a Commander. The Golden Crow Bow in her hand was Extraordinary Rank-8 too, and the arrow she shot out was made of Radiant Gold.
Together with the velocity of her own charge and the enhancement of the Infinite Quiver, her attack was probably among the best in Extraordinary Rank-8, yet it could not deal any destructive damage to the water ape!
“Golden Bull, Wooden Haitai, Starry Horse, Moon Fox, and Water Ape… This must be the ‘Primordial Unity Chaos Phenomena Array’!”
Next to Qin Yueyu, Guo Wei, who wore Special high-tech glasses and analyzed the behemoths, had quite a grave expression on his face.
The behemoths that were moving towards Dragon City were undoubtedly the work of the Kingdom of Liao whose troops landed on the Musical House Island two hours earlier!
However, those behemoths were not really the Transcendent creatures in myths, but a “battle array” that the Liao people had set up.
In Water Margin, apart from the martial artists and cultivators, there was another important element, which was “battle array”.
The simpler battle arrays included “Circular Array”, “Crane Wing Array”, “Crescent Moon Dragon”, “Wild Goose Array”, and “Cloud Dragon Array”. There were also complicated arrays such as the “Eight Trigram Array” that required seventeen heroes of Liangshan and thousands of soldiers.
However, the battle array that ranked top in Water Margin was undoubtedly the Primordial Unity Chaos Phenomena Array that Wuyan Guang, a Liao commander, set up with eleven grand marshals and 28 senior marshals.
Liangshan attacked the battle array four times.
In the first three times, all the 108 warriors were deployed, but they failed and lost a lot of soldiers.
Eventually, because Song Jiang was the Master of Destiny, he was taught how to crack the battle array by the Mysterious Lady of the Nine Heavens, exactly like when the Yellow Emperor fought Chiyou. So, he finally destroyed the battle array.
“We made a great mistake when we evaluated our enemies!”
Looking at the 28 approaching behemoths that were all Extraordinary Rank-8, Guo Wei furrowed his brows under his high-tech glasses.
He said that because in the strategic meeting the previous night, someone mentioned that since the four enemy forces had appeared at the same time, the gap among them might not be very huge.
In particular, the Kingdom of Liao was the only one that had “regular troops” and might have unusual methods. Therefore, should they consider fighting the strongest enemy first and setting the Kingdom of Liao as their first target while leaving Fang La aside?
However, the idea was disapproved.
There were three reasons.
Firstly, Fang La’s troops were attacking the critical locations of the Twin Dragon Island, so they must be eliminated first.
Secondly, Fang La had a lot of navy forces, and they could move and escape anytime, so they must be eradicated first.
Thirdly, according to Li Qing’s reconnaissance, Fang La’s heroes had the highest average level, and seven of them were Extraordinary Rank-7.
The Kingdom of Liao, in comparison, was rather weak. Apart from He Zhongbao, the Extraordinary Rank-8 deputy commander that Ji Ye saw at the beginning, and the commander who should be Extraordinary Rank-9 by deduction, the other grand marshals and senior marshals were all between Extraordinary Rank-7 and Rank-6!
For the Twin Dragon Island, enemies of such levels were not a threat because the Twin Dragon Island could already manufacture hot weapons, and the cannons named Flood Dragon’s Eye could deal critical damage to Extraordinary Rank-7 enemies.
Because Dragon City was at an important location, twenty Flood Dragon’s Eyes had been deployed here.
However, while there were few Extraordinary Rank-8 and Rank-9 warriors among the Liao people, the Primordial Unity Chaos Phenomena Array turned out to be much more powerful than expected.
The behemoths created by the battle arrays made of one Extraordinary Rank-6 Commander and several hundred soldiers crossed two ranks and reached Extraordinary Rank-8!
Also, there were altogether 28 behemoths, which equaled 28 Extraordinary Rank-8 Commanders.
It must be noted that the Twin Dragon Island only had half as many Extraordinary Rank-8 Commanders in total, and most of them were dealing with Fang La.
What caused a greater headache to Guo Wei and other city defenders was that the array behemoths were too sturdy.
While the Flood Dragon’s Eye couldn’t kill the Extraordinary Rank-8 creatures, it could still possibly hurt them. Yet, it had little effect when it hit those array behemoths.
If Ji Ye were here, he would’ve noticed that the array behemoths were all half-condensed exactly like Fang La’s body of Holy Fire. While they were not as scorchingly hot as the Holy Fire, it was impossible to break them with regular attacks!
In fact, Dragon City didn’t have many disadvantages against the Kingdom of Liao at first.
With the remote hot weapons they had prepared in advance, they had killed and injured almost a thousand intruders before they engaged in a fight.
It must be noted that the Twin Dragon Island had only left eight hundred people here. Because the elites had all been drafted to deal with Fang La, only two hundred of the eight hundred people were Extraordinary.
The Kingdom of Liao, on the other hand, had ten thousand soldiers. It was already a great opening when the defenders managed to kill so many people.
However, when Liao took advantage of their cavalry and quickly established the Primordial Unity Chaos Phenomena Array around Dragon City, they instantly took over the battle.
After the Primordial Unity Chaos Phenomena Array was set up, everyone in the Liao troops had essentially been given extraordinary power.
It was even more incredible than the Holy Fire that Fang La used.
Even the air forces that the Twin Dragon Island considered to be their last resort didn’t work out as effectively as planned.
Seeing that they were losing the battle, Guo Wei had already called for air raids through the radio.
However, faced with the Flood Dragon’s Eggs that the Golden Condors dropped, the seven behemoths in the north were all covered in a sheen of black light.
After that, the illusion of a Black Tortoise almost three hundred meters long that had a snake on its neck appeared right where the Flood Dragon’s Eggs were about to land. It blocked the blast and damage of the explosions!
The 28 Mansions could be combined or separated. When they were separated, they each represented a divine beast.
However, when the seven stars in each direction were combined, they could represent the Azure Dragon, the Vermilion Bird, the Black Tortoise, and the White Tiger—the famous Four Symbols in ancient Chidragon!
