Chapter 229 – Suo Jia Breaks Through Pt. 1
Although there were a hundred people present, none of them paid Suo Jia any mind. However, Suo Jia knew that once he was surrounded by them, he would be in a situation that he couldn’t easily get out of. The Angelic Phoenixes were already in quite a bit of danger. If they got caught by the enemy, the losses on Suo Jia’s side would be extremely great.
Suo Jia had spent way too much money on the Angelic Six-Winged Phoenixes. It could be said that the amount of money spent on each of them could form small mountains. He couldn’t afford to lose a single one of them.
Moreover, everyone had known each other for so long, so their relationships ran quite deep. Even if it didn’t result in a loss of money, losing such a close friend was something Suo Jia refused to allow that to happen, and he would try his hardest to prevent it from happening. He was unwilling to let such a tragedy occur.
Suo Jia knew that although it was very dangerous, he’d have to pull some risks if he wanted to do something for the Angelic Six-Winged Phoenixes’ sakes. No matter what, he’d have to try his utmost…
Suo Jia gritted his teeth and waved his right hand. An Ice Roar came whistling outwards, quickly spiraling in the air before shooting out blades of ice, instantly turning the area in front of him into a human hell. With the Ice Roar’s onslaught, at least 30 people instantly died.
Seeing the enemy fall into disarray, Suo Jia didn’t dare waste any time. He suddenly jumped up into the air, leaping over to where the Angelic Six-Winged Phoenixes were. If he traveled by ground, he would definitely be risking his life. By the time he ever managed to get through the enemy, quite a few of the Angelic Six-Winged Phoenixes would’ve probably been captured by the enemy.
Of course, flying above the army was extremely dangerous as well. Putting aside the enemy archers, even the middle-ranged weapons were enough to riddle Suo Jia with holes. Although the Water God’s Shield was formidable, it wasn’t unrivaled.
As expected, the soldiers all abruptly raised their heads to watch Suo Jia leap up. With their proficiency, they quickly began to store up battle qi. There were both bows and crossbows that were quickly drawn, all of them aimed at Suo Jia.
Suo Jia couldn’t help but watch the situation below with clenched teeth. The feeling stimulated from danger had caused his hair to stand on end. He knew that if he didn’t evade these attacks, his Water God’s Shield would instantly break. He may be able to block a few dozen attacks, but facing hundreds, and even thousands, was impossible.
Suo Jia activated his recently learned but already mastered Rising Wave Steps. His body weaved through the arrow like a dragon, swiftly moving through the air. When it looked like he was moving left, he was actually leaping to the right.
Whoosh, whoosh, whoosh…a series of sounds could be heard as countless weapons, arrows, and crossbow bolts all whizzed down towards him. Suo Jia placed all his concentration into using the Rising Wave Steps to counter the attacks, his body moving around like a demon, shifting back and forth through the empty spaces in the air, successfully avoiding a majority of the attacks.
Of course, dodging all the attacks when they were so concentrated together was impossible. Suo Jia was hit by at least a dozen of them every second. Fortunately, the ones attacking him weren’t really experts, so the Water God’s Shield wasn’t broken through. At the same time…the Water God’s Shield completely protected Suo Jia, to the point where he wasn’t even affected by the vibrational shocks. This was the Water God’s Shield’s greatest trait.
However, Suo Jia wasn’t feeling self-satisfied over something as simple as this. The ones obstructing him were just small fries. The real experts were all surrounding to attack the Angelic Phoenixes. Suo Jia realized that when he reached the encircled Angelic Phoenixes, he would be seeking death if he dared to cross over like that.
“Wu…” Seemingly confirming Suo Jia’s thoughts, an arrow quickly crossed the hundreds of meters distance and accurately struck the flying Suo Jia.
“Bang.” Like the sound of a burst balloon, the Water God’s Shield that had already lost quite a bit of its energy had finally broken. At the same time, the powerful momentum forced the arrow forwards and it accurately struck Suo Jia’s lower abdomen. This sent Suo Jia flying backwards over 30 meters in the air before he finally fell to the ground.
Suo Jia covered his stomach in shock. He knew that it was because of guys like these that the Angelic Phoenixes were unable to break away. The moment they jumped, these guys would definitely manage to shoot them back down with arrows, and encircle them once more.
“Bang.” After he finally landed on the ground, the surrounding soldiers swarmed around him like a bunch of bees around honey. They strived to reach him first, and quickly surrounded him. They brandished the weapons in their hands, trying to cut Suo Jia down.
Although he had been shot down from the air, Suo Jia, being Suo Jia, had his skin-tight Monarch Armor protecting him, so he hadn’t suffered from any major injury. After smoothly swallowing a Life Potion, his body instantly recovered.
Seeing the blades slash towards him like a torrent, Suo Jia couldn’t help but smile in disdain. With a stamp of his right foot, Diamond Charge’s devastation spread through the surroundings. If it was impossible to pass through air, then he’d just have to deal with going by ground.
Suo Jia reactivated the Water God’s Shield and leisurely charged through the people in large strides, walking towards the Angelic Phoenixes. His hands continuously tipped the four colored potions into his mouth, allowing him to incessantly release Diamond Charges one after another. In an instant, everywhere Suo Jia passed through was swept away, and the closely packed enemy troops had been split apart by Suo Jia to provide him a 10 meter wide passageway through.
Originally, when the 100,000 slave soldiers on the city walls had seen Suo Jia been shot down, they had been stunned from fear. However, now that they witnessed Suo Jia use such overpowering methods such as magics to open up a path through the concentrated army troops, the onlookers all cheered happily. Strong, too damn strong.
The world was just like this. An expert would receive respect from others, especially those experts that could ignore the existences of millions of people. At the moment….Suo Jia was undoubtedly a great hero in the slave soldiers’ eyes. His high level was enough for him to be called a hero from the legends.
As he downed another potion, Suo Jia stamped on the ground once more. Following this movement, another Diamond Charge was activated. Countless sharp icicles shot out from Suo Jia, and any enemy that was in his way would stagger back a few dozen steps before collapsing onto the ground. All of them shattered into particles of ice, as if they were made from glass, and these broken shards covered the ground.
Finally, Suo Jia managed to rush to the fight. As the Diamond Charge opened up a pathway, Suo Jia finally saw the trapped Angelic Six-Winged Phoenixes. At the same time, the enemy surrounding them had also discovered Suo Jia charge his way over. In an instant, they immediately sent out dozens of men to welcome Suo Jia. No matter what, they wouldn’t allow anyone to ruin their plans before they could reap the benefits.
Facing the oncoming enemy, Suo Jia subconsciously stomped on the ground once more, causing Diamond Charge to roar outwards. Originally, he’d thought that the enemy would be pushed away like they had been earlier. However, Suo Jia suddenly sensed that the men he was currently facing were not ordinary soldiers.
In response to Suo Jia’s Diamond Charge, the dozens of enemies waved the weapons in their hands. Some used shields to face the attack head on, while others sent their own attack colliding into the Diamond Charge. In a mere instant, the ice was sent flying wildly in all directions, the dozens of figures charged out of the Diamond Charge attack without any harm.
That wasn’t all. The enemy that had made their way through the attack seemed as if they hadn’t encountered anything obstructing at all. Their speeds didn’t decrease in the slightest, and they wildly brandished their weapons as they initiated their attack on Suo Jia. Their power and influence was on a frightening level.
Suo Jia knew that it was impossible for him to face the enemy’s attack head-on. However, if he tried to go around, on the off chance that the enemy allowed him to, he wouldn’t reach his destination in time. Besides, the enemy probably wouldn’t let him. Suo Jia could clearly see that the Angelic Six-Winged Phoenixes 30 meters away were unable to last any longer.
Although the Angelic Six-Winged Phoenixes were very powerful, with explosive attacks, speed as fast as the wind, and impenetrable armor….this didn’t mean that they were unrivaled. At the moment…some of the Angelic Phoenixes had already lost their ability to counterattack. Their bodies were being tossed from side to side by the enemy’s weapons, and a single glance was enough to tell that they were about to be captured.
Suo Jia looked at the dozen enemy experts charging at him like predators, and then back at the Angelic Phoenixes being captured alive, and he couldn’t help but tilt his head back and give a loud, angry hiss towards the sky. It was at that moment that he’d finally understood the truth of reality: no matter how powerful one was, it didn’t necessarily prove of any use on the battlefield. Group battles needed to be fought with other groups.
As matters currently stood, Suo Jia had to use all his strength. He suddenly clenched his hands into fists, and at the same time, the ring on his ring finger emitted a warm, milky-white glow.
