After dropping the cannonballs, the Extraordinary Rank-4 Golden Condors quickly flapped their wings and elevated. However, the Sun Rooster in the south suddenly unleashed a beam of sunlight from its golden comb and shot them from an altitude of a thousand meters!
Of the 28 Mansions, more than one of them had the qualities of the sun.
The hot weapons and air forces of Dragon City were all restricted by the enemy. It was why the situation at Dragon City was so terrible.
“Something is a little bit weird. According to the information on the forum, a battle array made of Extraordinary people can’t be so strong!
“Also, the Qidan people, who founded the Kingdom of Liao, were gradually assimilated into other nationalities after the fall of the kingdom. They don’t have enough support. Based on the rules of the Land of Inheritance, they shouldn’t be very strong. How can they have such an uncanny battle array?”
A player of the firearm division, who had been firing nonstop with the Flood Dragon’s Eye but couldn’t stop the Liao troops from approaching at all, gnashed his teeth and asked after a flying monster swung a stone at him and broke his arm.
“It must be because of the battle flags that have been established in the battle arrays of the Liao people.”
Qin Yueyu looked at the Liao soldiers who had set up a tight formation only four hundred meters away from the city.
At the center of each battle array were a Commander-level general and two Quasi-Commander deputy generals, who protected a fluttering flag that was almost three meters tall together. The flags all displayed the patterns of the 28 Mansions.
Considering the Holy Fire Badge and the Holy Fire Altar that Fang La’s troops had, it was possible the array flags of Liao also carried Transcendent features and endowed the battle arrays with some Transcendent power!
After realizing that, the Twin Dragon Island naturally attempted to destroy the flags.
However, it was almost impossible to do that, because those flags were all inside the behemoths under the protection of hundreds of people.
Also, the flags and the battle arrays could even boost each other.
It was because the Primordial Unity Chaos Phenomena Array consisted of not only the 28 Mansions but also the Eleven Starry Lords.
Who were the Eleven Starry Lords?
They were Jinwu, Yutu, Ziqi, Yuebo, Suixing, Yinghuo, Taibai, Chenxing, Zhenxing, Luohou, and Jidu!
The flags of the Eleven Starry Lords were held by eleven Extraordinary Rank-7 Commanders of the Kingdom of Liao and moved quickly among the battle arrays of the 28 Mansions. After two flags were activated at the same time, the enormous array of behemoths would be given additional powers.
For example, when the flag that represented the Taibai Star and the dragon that was also gold in nature were activated at the same time, the golden dragon was transformed into real metals and easily swiped away all the cannonballs that the Twin Dragon Island shot out with its tail!
When the flag that represented Taiyin was combined with the Ghost Goat, the array behemoth simply became invisible and made it impossible to be locked onto.
The arrow that Qin Yueyu shot out was almost at the peak of Extraordinary Rank-8. It didn’t cause much damage to the Water Ape, which was water in nature and had been combined with the flag that stood for water.
The flag hardened the body of the Water Ape and gave it the ability to recover with water. Theoretically speaking, unless it was blown into pieces and fully vaporized by powerful fire attacks, such as the Flood Dragon’s Eggs, the strengthened Water Ape could hardly be destroyed!
However, it was hard to do that too.
When the Twin Dragon Island concentrated their firepower on one of the behemoths, hoping to destroy them one by one, the Liao troops would activate the battle flags of higher levels and condense the illusions of the Azure Dragon, the White Tiger, the Vermilion Bird, and the Black Tortoise, exactly like how they dealt with the Flood Dragon’s Eggs.
Although the illusions of the Four Symbols could not last very long, they were as powerful as Extraordinary Rank-9. Their range of destruction was even greater than Extraordinary Rank-9.
The Yue Army that the Twin Dragon Island had summoned was also good at the Battle Formation of Four Symbols, but the gap between them and the Liao troops was quite big.
Was it because the Liao troops were stronger than the Yue Army in the past?
Of course not.
In history, the Kingdom of Liao was destroyed by the Kingdom of Jin, and the leaders of Jin remarked that it was easier to shake a mountain than to shake the Yue Army.
Besides, the Kingdom of Liao had fallen and the Qidan people had disappeared in history. According to the rules of the Land of Inheritance, it couldn’t have as much potential as the Yue Army, which was supported by more than a billion Chidragon people.
The reason the Yue Army’s battle formations weren’t as powerful was that the Battle Formation of Four Symbols that the Yue Army performed in the battle against Fang La wasn’t real.
The real Battle Formations of Four Symbols required at least a thousand well-trained soldiers, and there were only five hundred Yue soldiers on the Twin Dragon Island. The requirement wasn’t met.
Part of the abilities of the Battle Formations of Four Symbols could be carried out only because of the special power of the Book of Wumu!
“Right, the Book of Wumu keeps a record of how Yue Fei trained his soldiers. There must be ways on how to destroy the arrays, right?”
After shooting another Golden Crow Arrow and leaving a hole on the Wooden Wolf that was much more famous than the Steelback Blue Wolf in Journey to the West to slow it down, Qin Yueyu quickly asked again.
“I’ve already asked Master via the walkie-talkie. He said that there are indeed solutions in the Book of Wumu, but since it was acquired from the Battlefield of Providence where it was weakened, the records are not complete.
“More importantly, the Transcendent power in the Book of Wumu has already been used up. So, even if it can destroy the arrays, we’ll still have to wait until tomorrow.
“In fact, the way to destroy the arrays has already been pointed out in the original novel of Water Margin. But that’s just a theory. Exactly as how and when it should be done, perhaps only someone who’s really adept at battle arrays can do that.”
Looking at the behemoths of the 28 Mansions that were only three hundred meters away from Dragon City and looked quite threatening with their enormous sizes, Guo Wei shook his head.
A lot of people on the Twin Dragon Island had strengthened their memorizing skills at the cost of Rare Honor and learned Water Margin by heart on Earth. He was exactly one of them.
In fact, he did know how to destroy the battle arrays.
The problem was that the Primordial Unity Chaos Phenomena Array had a lot of variations, and unpredictable situations might happen during the battle. Without someone who was really familiar with battle arrays, there might be bigger losses if they were to destroy the arrays recklessly.
“Chief Zhuge, you must know battle arrays quite well. Do you know how to break this one?”
After a moment of consideration, Qin Yueyu turned around and shouted at Zhuge Ying who was a dozen meters behind her.
There were battle arrays in “Life of Yue Fei” too. As Yue Fei’s advisor, Zhuge Ying was supposed to know battle arrays quite well. It was one of the reasons why Ji Ye sent him to Dragon City.
“I’m truly sorry. Although I’ve noticed some special parts of the array, I haven’t figured out a way to destroy it.”
Zhuge Ying, who boldly claimed that he could take the Liao troops down with the Yue Army and get three thousand horses in the meeting the previous day, had sweat popping up on his forehead.
“I didn’t expect the Liao people to have such a sophisticated grand array!”
In the end, he waved his fan awkwardly and added.
Guo Wei, on the other hand, didn’t scorn Zhuge Ying.
After all, in the Life of Yue Fei, Yue Fei was the one who really made all the decisions, and Zhuge Ying was not nearly as important as Wu Yong was to Liangshan, or he wouldn’t have been only an Excellent hero.
Besides, Water Margin was different from the Life of Yue Fei.
Just like how the acupuncture sealing technique from the Battle of Xiangyang didn’t really work on the heroes of Water Margin, it was normal that Zhuge Ying couldn’t break the Primordial Unity Chaos Phenomena Array.
“Maybe, in order to break this array, we have to try to summon the hero in Water Margin who was really good at battle formations.”
Looking at the Liao troops who were only 150 meters away, Guo Wei slowly laid his hand on a heavy sword.
At this moment, he had been informed that Fang La and Pang Wanchun had both dropped Commander-level Souls of Civilization after they were killed!
If they seized the time to perform a ritual, it was possible that they could summon the special person in Water Margin who was best at battle arrays and who was as important to Liangshan as Gongsun Sheng was.
Although this person only knew about the Primordial Unity Chaos Phenomena Array and couldn’t break it in the original novel, he would probably be able to do it as a hero who was almost Perfect together with the theoretical knowledge of the array and the power of the Book of Wumu after it was recovered.
There was only one problem. Would the Kingdom of Liao give the Twin Dragon Island enough time to summon the hero and recover the Book of Wumu?
The answer was certainly no!
