828 Pseudo Mythical-level Card
The moonlight was shining brightly late at night.
There were two powerful aurae colliding into each other repetitively above a lake in the second layer of the Abyss Brink.
Many of them who had been to the Abyss Brink would know the name of the lake - Black Water Lake.
Due to the existence of imperial-level monsters, many immortal-level human powerhouses treated this lake as a forbidden land which made it hard to discover.
If anyone who learned about the lake was nearby, one glance was enough for the person to recognize the master of the lake which was fighting above the lake at the moment: the black gold-rank Devil Ray.
Meanwhile, a pitch-black gigantic boa was fighting the Devil Ray at the moment. The boa was 9,000 meters long while there was a human-form monster in black armor standing steadily on its head. The monster had a faint layer of black mist surrounding its body.
A similar thing was happening above a snowy area thousands of kilometers away.
A gigantic boa was also carrying a black-armored monster in a human form and fighting a black gold-rank Frost Bear.
However, the boa disappeared in the middle of the battle. The human-form monster with an unknown aura lingering around its body experienced a boost in its combat strength. It was elevated to crimson gold-rank.
The battle turned one-sided later on.
In less than three minutes, the head of the powerful Frost Bear was chopped off. Bright, red blood splashed all over from its severed neck, dyeing the snow red. It was like a red rose being painted on a piece of white paper.
"Everyone has accomplished their mission in less than three days and has gone up to immortal-level rank-9," Bloody reported its observation, "Some of them even took the initiative to kill imperial-level monsters."
"It's the third day tomorrow. Should we call all of them back?"
"There's no need. Most of them are trying something new. It's good to let them practice, but Thunder, Bloody Robe, the Malachian Fiend, and the Inferior Imp should be done having their fun. We can change the teams now." Lin Huang came up with a plan ahead.
Lin Huang could not stand some of the repulsive addictions that Bloody Robe had when he teamed up with Thunder.
Meanwhile, the Malachian Fiend and imp duo had the bad habit of torturing and tricking their prey. However, that was something that was planted deep in the Malachian Fiend's bones and there was no way to eradicate it at all. Their behavior might worsen if they were ordered to stop behaving that way in the long run. All Lin Huang could do was to take the opportunity to let them release it moderately.
"Is there still nothing about the crack in the world at all?"
"No, my Leech Pods have spread all over the second layer of the Abyss Brink these few days, but they found nothing. Nothing odd has happened recently to the monsters that were parasitized. I'll need more time to investigate this further."
"There's no rush. I haven't even collected half of the spiritual energy. We'll need to stay for three or four more days, or even longer." Getting Bai and the rest to kill in teams allowed them to obtain Life Power and, on the other hand, obtain spiritual energy to fill the God's Figurine in his body.
"Bai and the rest have killed at least over 300 monsters these few days whereby the lowest combat strength of the monsters was immortal-level rank-9. How come you haven't collected the full spiritual energy? Is the conversion rate very low?" Bloody could not help but ask.
"Yes, even with the God's Figurine protection, the spiritual energy needs to be filtered by the Divine Fire. The spiritual energy's conversion success rate is less than 1%." Lin Huang looked helpless as he spoke. "But that's not entirely bad. At least, the converted spiritual energy will be extremely pure and won't be affected by the Divine Fire again."
The third night was the due date of the mission Lin Huang had assigned to them. All of them thought that the time given was too short and they were not done having fun.
Initially, they had accepted this mission for the junk food reward or other things that they desired. However, without Lin Huang by their side for the past few days, almost all of them unleashed their true monster characters.
When Bloody sent Lin Huang's order across for them to continue with the killing through his Leech Pods, Tyrant and the rest almost cheered.
However, some of them were unhappy, including Thunder, Bloody Robe, the Malachian Fiend, and the Inferior Imp.
After recalling the four of them into cards, Lin Huang summoned the Herculean King, Bing Wang, Killer and the Evil Dominator.
Killer and the Evil Dominator were two pseudo-mythical-level monsters, and it was the first time Lin Huang had summoned them. They teamed up with Bing Wang and the Herculean King to begin a new round of killing.
Lin Huang had been watching the two teams as he was worried.
However, the truth revealed that his concern was unnecessary as the two pseudo-mythical-level monsters were invincibly powerful. Although they only had a combat strength of immortal-level rank-7, they won the battle in less than a minute when they encountered triple mutated monsters of immortal-level rank-9.
The two apes only realized that the teammates they had never met before were the real bosses after seeing them fight.
"Pseudo mythical-level is so much more powerful than legendary-level. I wonder how powerful a real mythical-level Monster Card is!" Lin Huang became excited looking at the duo's performance.
The two pseudo-mythical-level monsters led the two apes and elevated to immortal-level rank-9 that night itself. The reason why the two teams had such high efficiency was that the two pseudo-mythical-level monsters would cripple the prey since they advanced to immortal-level rank-9. Then, they would get the two apes to kill them directly.
Ever since they got to immortal-level rank-9, Killer and the Evil Dominator brought their burden along to fight imperial-level monsters.
If they were in other teams, the two apes might have been able to share the responsibility and be of great help. However, in the shadow of these two pseudo-mythical-level bosses, the two apes had no opportunity to fight at all. They ended up being their transportation vehicles and would sometimes cheer for them.
"The Herculean King and Bing Wang seemed to be treated as transportation vehicles now. They hardly get out to move around, these poor babies…" Even Bloody could not take it any longer. As opposed to the two Dark Crescent Snakes which had the opportunity to fight with the Knights, the two apes completely became benchwarmers.
"It's my fault. I miscalculated the two pseudo mythical-level monsters' abilities. I should've paired the two apes up instead while letting Killer and the Evil Dominator be on the same team." Lin Huang was not sure to laugh or to cry. "The only thing I can do is to make up with free time for the Herculean King and Bing Wang next time."
Time flew by and soon three days passed. The spiritual energy of the three God's Figurine in Lin Huang's body had been finally filled to the amount he expected.
Bai and the rest killed tens of black gold-rank monsters throughout the past few days.
There were not many imperial-level monsters on the entire second level of the Abyss Brink, let alone black gold-rank monsters. The news of a massive amount of black gold-rank monsters being killed was spread a few days ago, so many of the black gold-rank monsters hid. However, Bloody found most of them while a handful of them ran to the third level of the Abyss Brink.
Since that was the case, Bai and the rest could only hunt for immortal-level rank-9 monsters which were abundant in the Abyss Brink.
Meanwhile, Killer and the Evil Dominator challenged a crimson gold-rank monster each which ended up to be a tie. They then retreated respectively.
Later on, the two pseudo-mythical-level monsters proceeded to challenge more crimson gold-rank monsters. They won some and lost some, but did not manage to kill any.
The two apes, on the other hand, were put into a team when the two pseudo-mythical-level monsters were challenging their first crimson gold-rank monster. They proceeded to kill immortal-level rank-9 monsters.
Among the nine sword servants that Lancelot was leading, three of them completed triple mutation.
Meanwhile, on Kylie's side, only 16 monsters completed triple mutation. The truth proved that Nephilic Judges would really have to go through a trial to advance into triple mutated Nephilic Angels. However, the success rate of elevation was less than 10%.
Too many things had happened throughout the past three days, but Bloody had yet to find anything about the crack in the world.
Lin Huang even began to suspect the new crack might not be on this level.
"If the imperial-level skinless monster managed to pass through the crack, it proves that the crack must either be on the second or third level of the Abyss Brink. The reason being that there's a limitation on the first level whereby imperial-levels can't enter. Now that we can't find it on the second level, the only possibility is that the new crack's on the third level."
"Please give me two more days. Let me look for it thoroughly one more time." Bloody refused to give up.
At midnight of the fourth day, Bloody exclaimed out of nowhere, "I've found it!"
