1107 Do You Agree to Go to the Last Checkpoint?
A pitch-black claw with black scales stretched out of the Virtual Eye. Subsequently, a giant head poked through.
It was a massive dragon head that looked like it was made of black metal casting. It seemed cold and ferocious.
It was a dragonkin!
It had six screw-like horns on its head while its four eyes lit up like golden lightbulbs. Before it crawled out of the Virtual Eye completely, its four eyes were locked onto Lin Huang. It snorted in disdain after realizing that Lin Huang's combat strength was only immortal-level rank-9.
The Death Butterfly landed on Lin Huang's shoulder slowly, glaring fatally at the dragonkin. It looked like it was staring its prey down.
After more than two hours of killing, it realized that the spiritual energy in its body had been filling up. Meanwhile, this demigod-level dragonkin before them looked like it had an even more powerful spiritual energy than those imperial-level monsters that it had destroyed. In other words, the dragonkin looked delicious to the Death Butterfly.
Unfortunately, the dragonkin did not notice that it was practically being drooled over. After announcing its arrival with a roar, its entire body came out of the Virtual Eye slowly.
From the looks of it, Lin Huang figured this monster was at least up to 10,000 meters long.
It opened its jaws wide after getting out. Then, it released a roar that quaked the world as though it was announcing its arrival.
The Death Butterfly looked at Lin Huang, seeming to ask whether it could attack yet.
Lin Huang nodded tersely at it.
In the next second, the blue Death Butterfly flapped its wings. An invisible wave seemed to ripple in the sky.
The dragonkin's roar was cut short all of a sudden. Its four big, golden lightbulb eyes dimmed while its body that seemed to be formed of metal casting was rotting at a speed that could be seen with the naked eye. Merely three to four seconds later, its flesh vanished. Only a massive black skeletal frame remained. However, the frame lasted less than five seconds before turning into ashes and disappearing with the wind.
The demigod-level dragonkin did not even have the chance to attack and was killed without even realizing what hit it. Lin Huang could only witness how terrifying the Death Butterfly was.
After the demigod-level dragonkin came out, the Virtual Eye became normal again.
Imperial-level purple gold-rank monsters started coming out of it again. The monster horde came one after another like a flood.
"So, imperial-level purple gold-rank monsters are appearing again. Judging from the current pattern, the occasional demigod-level monsters will come out in the last four hours. I'm just not sure if an hour will be the right interval."
Lin Huang was rather relieved to see that the monsters that were coming out were imperial-level purple gold-rank monsters. He was a little worried that many demigod-level monsters would appear.
After all, demigod-level monsters were different from imperial-level monsters. When encountered some with a unique ability, his God Figurine's Combat Souls might not be able to kill them in one hit. Moreover, they had a higher chance of breaking Enchanted Fairy's defense with their Divine Power at full force. As soon as the defense was broke, a demigod-level attack alone could cause a major scale of death if it landed in the foothold. As soon as the number of deaths surpassed the mission limit, he would fail the stage. That was what Lin Huang was most unwilling to see happening.
However, Lin Huang's concern was unnecessary since no more demigod-level monsters emerged.
Time flew by, and another half an hour passed. A powerful aura came out of the Virtual Eye again.
Lin Huang lifted his head and looked at the Virtual Eye's direction in the sky. He frowned slightly. "This aura…"
He was wondering whether a demigod-level monster would come out every hour in the last four hours since the first one came out an hour later. However, that was not the apparent pattern at all because only half an hour had passed and a demigod-level monster's aura was coming out of the Virtual Eye again.
What surprised Lin Huang even more was that the aura this time seemed to be coming from more than one demigod-level monster.
A moment later, a dark-purple head came out of the Virtual Eye. The dark-purple body came out of the Virtual Eye completely before Lin Huang could take a good look at it.
Lin Huang looked closely to see a giant indigo centipede. It was thousands of meters long with three pairs of barely-there wings on its back.
Two indigo feelers at the top of its head moved in the air as it seemed to be sniffing out for aura. Brutality exuded from its three pairs of ruby-like bloody eyes on both sides of its head. Its mouth that looked like a scimitar below was twitching slightly, giving out chilling insecurity.
After the centipede came out, a gigantic spider crawled out of the Virtual Eye slowly.
The spider was bigger than any arachnid that Lin Huang had ever seen in his life. It was completely grayish-brown and had legs that were thousands of meters long. Its entire body seemed like a moving mountain supported by eight pillars.
Its head was filled with dense black eyes of all sizes. There were at least 30 to 40 of them. People with trypophobia would have goosebumps if they saw this creature.
The two monsters' aurae were clearly demigod-level.
Lin Huang could not help but scowl when two of them came at once. It was not that he could not handle two, but the pattern was unfathomable.
The first time a demigod-level monster came out was an hour since the new batch of the monster horde. Now, there were two demigod-level monsters half an hour later. The interval and quantity were unpredictable now.
Just when the two monsters locked their eyes on Lin Huang and the Enchanted Fairy as soon as they appeared, the blue Death Butterfly on Lin Huang's shoulder flapped its wings all of a sudden.
In the next second, the two demigod-level monsters' bodies began to disintegrate while they stared at it in shock. They looked like corpses being dissolved by all sorts of microorganisms with a fast-forward button.
In less than ten seconds, the two demigod-level monsters turned into ashes. The enormous bodies left ashes all over the ground.
After the second batch of demigod-level monsters came, the third wave rushed forward merely ten minutes later. There were three of them this time.
However, the fourth wave came merely a minute after the Death Butterfly killed the third batch of demigod-level monsters. Then, there were five monsters.
Seeing the batch of monsters coming, Lin Huang could not help but frown again. If the intervals shortened and the number of monsters was growing like this, there was a possibility that he would really fail this time.
Fortunately, Lin Huang's concern did not happen. The pattern finally stabilized whereby five demigod-level monsters emerged from the Virtual Eye every one minute.
The pattern persevered and the last four hours ended.
Lin Huang was finally relieved the moment when the Virtual Eye closed entirely.
Before he recalled his two God Figurine's Combat Souls, two notifications popped out from his Emperor's Heart Ring consecutively.
"Congratulations, Lin Xie, for breaking through the 80th checkpoint of the Stairway Tree!"
"Do you agree to go to the last checkpoint on the Stairway Tree?"
"The last checkpoint?" Lin Huang was stunned for a second but soon made up his mind almost without thinking. "I agree! Take me there!"
