Birth of the Demonic Sword - Chapter 1472

The battle over the region divided by white rivers came to an end a few minutes after Noah and King Elbas killed Blanche . The other two solid stage cultivators had faced Ian and Jordan, but their situation had quickly turned become quite poor .
Boss April and her companion were strong, but Ian and Jordan surpassed them both in battle experience and sheer power . They were hybrids who had fought for their entire lives . The two experts from the guild struggled to fend off their offensive since the beginning of the fight .
Jordan had quickly transformed into a dragon . Instead, Ian had begun to accumulate his howls as soon as the two experts had left the underground structure .
Even the hybrids had stopped playing around and testing their opponents . The battle against Boss Ednas guild had already satisfied their desire for a good fight . They only wanted to finish their mission now .
Boss April had a tricky law . Her power allowed her to interact with space . She could teleport boulders that exploded whenever they touched a foreign aura, and her defensive abilities also relied on her true meaning .
However, her incredible ability had to have some drawbacks . One of them was its cost in terms of Breath, and the other was the amount of energy that she could teleport .
The explosions released by her boulders could be deadly for humans, but hybrids at her level could endure even her strongest attacks . Boss April could injure both Ian and Jordan, but she couldnt inflict severe wounds .
That weakness was even more noticeable against Jordan in her dragon form . She was too big, and her amber scales could disperse most of the energy released in the explosions .
Ian was a bit worse off, but he could redirect his soundwaves to deny the explosions . Boss April had to take a supportive role in the battle after realizing that her ability couldnt lead to victory . She had to rely on her companion to win .
Her companions name was Alan . His law allowed him to create snake-shaped lightning bolts to ride to obtain massive bursts of acceleration . He could also launch those creatures toward his opponents to create piercing attacks .
The core of his law was acceleration . All his lightning bolts could perform sprints able to take any opponent by surprise . Their power also depended on how fast they went, so Alan could potentially injure the two hybrids .
With Boss Aprils support, many of Alans attacks managed to hit the hybrids . She would teleport when their power was still low and let them accelerate once they arrived in a spot that could take her opponents by surprise .
Yet, Jordan and Ian didnt stay still during the fight . They quickly understood that Boss April wouldnt be a problem as long as they defeated Alan . They soon began to focus on the expert and render that tactic impossible to deploy .
Boss April did her best to support her companion, but the hybrids ignored her attacks during her reckless assault toward the lightning cultivator . Alan eventually realized that the battle could only end with his death, so he attempted to leave the battlefield and escape without minding his guild .
Still, Jordans influence had already spread through a large area of the sky at that point . Alan had been too slow in deciding to escape . The hybrid could use her winds to stop his acceleration and deliver a deadly blow with her claws .
Once Alan died, Boss April lost her will to fight . Her guild had crumbled, and her companion had tried to leave her behind . She couldnt even try to defeat her opponents . She would rather let them end the battle quickly than continue in a pointless struggle .
Her behavior made Ian and Jordan decide to take her as a prisoner . The team already had Adele, but it couldnt hurt to have more informants in their ranks, especially when it came to guilds .
The outcome of the second battle turned out to be far better than the first . Noahs team managed to win without suffering any serious injury . They could set off in less than two months and move toward their next target as soon as they finished pillaging every resource hidden in the underground structure .
Noahs group continued their mission, hunting every guild hired by the organizations involved in the invasion of the Outer Lands . Most of those forces were nothing more than small armies featuring only one solid stage cultivator . The last battles ended up being nothing more than a one-sided slaughter .
The other guilds involved with the invasion soon understood what was happening . They couldnt confirm that the Legion was behind the attacks, but they guessed that some large force didnt want them to join that mission .
Those forces began to sever their ties with the large organizations that had hired them . They left their homes and settlements to hide from the fearful group of experts hunting them .
The news even reached the other guilds . The large organizations soon found no one willing to accept their offers, no matter how generous they were .
Everything unfolded as Noah had predicted . The loss of manpower would force the large organizations to deploy their own forces in the invasion . Yet, the first phases of every war would always lead to slaughters, and they werent willing to invest their troops in those projects .
Once the sacrificial pawns disappeared, the invasion came to a stop . The pagoda in the Outer Land still had a few troops in its defense, but nothing changed even after years passed .
It was as if the large forces had put their plan to a stop . The lack of expendable cultivators made them rethink their approach to the mission . They couldnt directly attack anymore . They had to create a proper plan that could lead to fewer losses .
Noah ignored the political repercussions of his actions . He didnt need to ask about them to know how everything would unfold . The final decision was up to the organizations anyway . They had to choose whether they were willing to sacrifice their troops to invade the lands of the strongest warriors on the higher plane .
His focus remained on his improvements . The mission had given Noah the chance to fight many solid stage cultivators . His battle experience increased again in that period, and he even managed to perfect his new techniques .
Noah also created new abilities that could improve his battle prowess . Once he had confirmed that spells could work together with the workshop, Noah went through a long testing phase that aimed to bring his power to a new level .
After all the battles were over, Noah and the others flew back to the Outer Lands, carrying their prisoners with them . Adele and Boss April had ended up being only the firsts of a long trail of cultivators trapped during their battles .
When they returned to Yellnbel, the group noticed that the rank 8 auras high in the sky had disappeared . It seemed that the experts in the eighth rank had taken a break from their endless battle . The two forces had silently agreed to seal a truce while the situation was so unstable .
Noahs group led the prisoners inside the city, and Theodora didnt hesitate to take the issue into her own hands . Those cultivators could become significant assets for the Legion, so she didnt want to kill them or let them rot in a cell .
Wilfred was with Theodora inside the largest building in the whole city . The hybrid and Noahs group observed how Theodora handled the prisoners and tampered with their memories to protect her underlings identity .
