Merry Christmas! This is a scheduled post, I am not actually here 😛
Twelfth and last Christmas chapter~ Thanks for all the comments so far! I posted 12 today so I could post a chapter every 2 hrs ^^ (I wish I could post every hour, but that’s too difficult). It’s been a long journey of releasing and translating for this to happen, and I hope you enjoyed the mass release. I can only cross my fingers and hope this was a sufficient enough apology for my minimum releases while I was busy recently. We’re nearing the 200 chapter milestone now~ ^^
The results of the synopsis competition will be announced soon.

Chapter 193 – Taking Over Dawn Pt. 1
Suo Jia knew that he was currently in the most dangerous circumstances. He had to quickly end the battle; otherwise, as soon as he was surrounded, together with the shooting from outside, even the Water God’s Shield wouldn’t be able to last for very long!
Although the Water God’s Shield could block 15 of Duo Mei’s slashes, Suo Jia was currently surrounded by 30 warriors. In addition, there were over a hundred archers off in the distance. Such an overwhelming attack could disintegrate the Water God’s Shield within 2 seconds. The Space Shield also had a 10 minute cooldown period. In other words, if he didn’t quickly end it, Suo Jia would lose his defense and have to go against the 130+ enemies in a defenseless state. In other words, there was an 100% chance that he’d get instantly killed.
Facing the flocking 20-30 warriors, Suo Jia abruptly stamped his right foot. A dull sound rang out as the Diamond Charge instantly activated. Rings, rows, and columns of the Diamond Charge’s attacks wildly diffused through the air starting from Suo Jia, causing anyone in its path to suffer from a crushing defeat.
It was clear to see that these fellows had quite a bit of strength. At the very least, they weren’t normal soldiers. They all fell to ground one after another, and the ice layers around their bodies shattered. However, their bodies were still perfectly intact. Only their actions were slightly slowed, which was due to the freezing effect.
Seeing this, Suo Jia couldn’t help but frown. Originally, he’d thought that the Diamond Charge would definitely shatter all of these guys into pieces. However, he hadn’t imagined that they’d actually have this amount of strength, where the Diamond Charge could only induce freezing effects on them. He was unable to inflict any significant damage.
Suo Jia didn’t dare tarry. He stretched out his hands, and a 9-meter long, arm-thick ice stream instantly leapt out. His right hand grasped the tail end of the ice stream, and with a fierce wave of his arm, the thick ice stream twisted and wound around the air. This caused the warriors attempting to close in on him to retreat once more, and knocked aside many of the arrows as well.
However, Suo Jia’s ice stream whip wasn’t a complete defense. A few dozen sharp arrows passed through the chinks in the ice stream, and accurately hit Suo Jia’s Water God’s Shield. Having received this attack, the shield’s strength instantly decreased by quite a lot, almost dispersing right then and there!
“Tch…” Suo Jia lowly cursed, and controlled the ice stream whip with one hand. He circled his left hand around and then yanked it back, causing a shrieking water vortex to appear. Under the effects of Revolving Frozen Gas, it condensed into an ice wall, firmly protecting Suo Jia. For the moment, it’d be quite effective against the arrows, even though it probably wouldn’t obstruct the warriors.
His right hand controlled the ice stream whip as his left hand stretched out. The next moment….a sharp Ice Arrow instantly shot out. It pierced through a warrior’s throat, then hit the shoulder of another warrior behind, killing one and injuring the other.
At the same time, the ice stream whip accurately struck one of the warriors. A clear bang rang out, and Suo Jia instantly activated Freezing Touch, successfully freezing his opponent into an ice cube. When the ice stream whip lashed out once more, it shattered the ice cube, filling the air with fragments of the body.
However, Suo Jia’s circumstances hadn’t yet changed for the better. The total number of warriors in the room hadn’t decreased by much, and the hidden archers outside were still wildly shooting at him.
It was at this moment that Suo Jia finally realized that no matter how powerful one was, they would still be tiny and insignificant in the face of a collective team. Although he had exerted all of his strength, he was still surrounded by perils. One person against over 100 people was an entirely different concept from fighting 1v1 battles.
What Suo Jia had to go up against weren’t just attacks, but the question of defense. Suo Jia didn’t have the power to evade, and could only choose to actively block some attacks with his defense. However, he could only helplessly receive majority of the other attacks!
In addition, in terms of just attacking, Suo Jia couldn’t possibly target everyone at the same time. At the very least, he couldn’t at the moment. In addition, even if he did manage to, Suo Jia’s attack power would end up being decreased by a large amount, as it would end up being distributed among the increasing number of enemies present.
Magic was just like this; the greater the range of attack, the less the destructive power and harmful effects each target would suffer from. On the other hand, the more concentrated the attacks were on a single target, the greater its might would be. Simultaneously attacking 10 people meant that one’s power would have to be evenly divided into 10; this was an inevitable result.
In terms of defense, one couldn’t just contend against a single person’s attack. Rather, they’d have to face 10 people’s, or 100 people’s attacks. Blocking all of them wasn’t impossible, but preventing a single attack from all 100 people was equivalent to one person attacking 100 times. This would decrease the shield’s energy, and even destroy it. Even a Magister wouldn’t be able to deal with a shower of arrows from 10,000 people. If they tried to face it head-on, the result would definitely end up being the magic shield instantly shattering!
Even if someone was unrivaled under the heavens in 1v1 battles, they couldn’t possibly resist a 10,000 men army by themselves; this was true for everyone. Even if the army stood still and allowed one to hack at them however they wanted, the person’s battle qi would run out before defeating everyone. Their physical power and spirit power would also be drained. In this sense, it was basically an impossible task.
Teams required teams to contend against; it wasn’t something that a single person could play around with. Suo Jia didn’t dare flaunt his power. A proper man should know how to retract and extend. If they didn’t know how to retreat, they were fools!
Suo Jia took a deep breath, and prepared to quickly retreat. But the next moment…the windows all simultaneously exploded. At this most critical moment, the Angelic Six-Winged Phoenixes had finally come to his rescue.
Long before they had entered, the Angelic Six-Winged Phoenixes had already finished storing their energies. As soon as they walked in, 36 red and gold glows flashed, and all the warriors present got hit by the attacks at the same time. They hurriedly used their weapons to split the crazy attacks from the Thousand Feathers, but its massive impulse sent the 30+ warriors blasting off pathetically into the distance.
“Phew…” Suo Jia couldn’t help but let out a breath. Since the girls had come, there wouldn’t be a problem. These Angelic Six-Winged Phoenixes had the protection of the Six-Winged Phoenix Heavenly Clothes, and were completely impervious to the archers’ might. They were only afraid of attacks from blunt weapons, as well as the force inflicted by close ranged weapons. Things like bows were weapons that they never even attempted to block or evade. To them, the rain of arrows wasn’t much different from natural rain.
Despite seeing that the Thousand Feathers hadn’t instantly killed their enemies, the Angelic Six-Winged Phoenixes weren’t very surprised. After all…there were many experts out there. If the Thousand Feathers wasn’t effective, then they’d enter close combat. No matter when, the Angelic Six-Winged Phoenixes had always been strongest in close combat!
“Hula…” A fierce whistle rang through the air as all the Angelic Six-Winged Phoenixes opened their cloaks. Their bodies quickly leapt out towards the 30+ warriors, instantly initiating some messy warfare.
After lightly flicking off some nonexistent dust on his body, Suo Jia checked the Water God’s Shield, and could sense its energy quickly recovering itself. Suo Jia smiled at the fatty opposite him and began to walk over. Now…there was no longer anyone that could obstruct his way. That damn fatty had provoked him, and deserved to suffer from the repercussions!
Seeing all the warriors wrapped into the fights, and having fallen into the disadvantageous position where he could be beaten, the fatty finally panicked. Since the fatty had just seen Suo Jia display his godly might, the fatty was beyond terrified as he watched Suo Jia approach him with a sinister smile!
Abruptly reaching out his hand, the fatty pointed at Suo Jia and said, “Archers, heed my command. Concentrate your fire power at this fellow, and shoot him until he becomes a porcupine!”
Following the fatty’s orders, the dark spaces in the surrounding walls immediately shot out another volley of arrows. However, the number of arrows had already drastically decreased. The archers in front of the windows had already been killed off by the Angelic Six-Winged Phoenixes when they first entered. Thus, only around 50 of the archers hiding in the darkness still remained.
Although only 50 of them remained, a volley of 50 arrows still had quite a bit of destructive power. However…the Angelic Six-Winged Phoenixes had already arrived. Without any need for Suo Jia to order them, they automatically leapt forward and caused all of the arrows to fall onto the ground. They then flung the charged amethysts in their left hands, swinging them towards the dark places. A bang echoed through the room, and the archers hiding in the darkness were all caught in the explosion. They had a few missing arms and legs, and their guts were spilling out of their bodies. A single glance was enough to tell that they were dead.
From beginning to end, Suo Jia hadn’t even glanced sideways at the scene. He believed in the Angelic Six-Winged Phoenixes, his own companions. As long as they were here, Suo Jia would definitely not be in any danger. Suo Jia deeply believed that they would help him block all attacks. In addition, the Angelic Six-Winged Phoenixes hadn’t yet disappointed him.
Finally, the fatty watched Suo Jia with an expression overstruck by horror as Suo Jia stopped 10 meters in front of him. Suo Jia coldly glared at the fatty and said in a low voice, “You shouldn’t have provoked me. You’re really too foolish.”
