1113 One More Trial, Please!
The 300 over bug formation beasts were made of up to 10,000 demigod-level bug monsters each that contained powerful Divine Power.
The battle lasted for over ten minutes and finally, the Divine Power of one of the formations was drained as a result of the Ninetails Lynx's mauling.
The bug formation disintegrated as soon as their Divine Power was drained. The formation that was made of up to 10,000 bug monsters disintegrated immediately.
Before the Ninetails Lynx could attack, the Divine Sun Tree swung its few branches into the sky, sweeping through the direction where the bug formation disintegrated.
In the next second, the bug monsters that lost their formation protection were lit up by golden flames, and they became 10,000 fireballs in the sky. The fireballs merely burned for less than ten seconds before turning into ashes completely.
"What a waste!" Lin Huang did not expect the Divine Sun Tree to attack so quickly. He initially wanted to get the Nightmare Tapir to attack so that he could keep the bug monsters' carcasses for the Undead Styx to transform into puppets.
A sea of spiritual energy rushed into Lin Huang's body and it was filtered by the Divine Fire since the 10,000 demigod-level bug monsters were killed. Under Lin Huang's control, the wave of spiritual energy was inserted into the Creation Clock.
Without Lin Huang's control, the spiritual energy would usually go into the few God Figurine's Combat Souls with the lowest combat strength and it would be distributed evenly. However, the spiritual energy in the Creation Clock's body was filled according to Lin Huang's control. It was on the brink of breaking through to virtual god-level.
Sensing the Creation Clock breaking through soon, Lin Huang recalled it back to his body immediately.
The breaking of the first bug formation gave the Destructive Divine Mammoth and the rest confidence in the battle.
Initially, even Lin Huang was not sure how long would these bug formation beasts last. He was torn watching his seven God Figurine's Combat Souls in the battle fail to kill the opponents. Furthermore, there were so many opponents.
However, the morale of the seven God Figurine's Combat Souls was boosted since the first bug formation broke. They were in high spirits now.
The Destructive Divine Mammoth stomped its feet one after another at an even higher frequency than before.
Approximately less than two minutes since the first bug formation broke, the second one finally split. It was the Destructive Divine Mammoth that crushed it with its feet this time.
It stomped its gigantic pillar-like feet from the sky, killing 10,000 saber-wings bug monsters completely.
The saber-wings bug monsters that had Divine Power in their bodies were drained immediately after they lost the protection from the disintegrated formation. Then, they were soon turned into ashes by the merciless Death Butterfly.
Clearly, the God Figurine's Combat Souls who been tolerating their failure to break the formations were releasing their rage on the bug monsters. They were using the first-mover's advantage.
"You guys are attacking too fast!" Lin Huang was confounded.
After this round of harvesting, another sea of spiritual energy rushed into Lin Huang's body. He gave it to the Shackle Serpent this time.
Lin Huang recalled it back to his body since the spiritual energy it needed to elevate to virtual god-level was almost full now.
After the second bug formation beast 'died', the Destructive Divine Mammoth crushed the third one with its trunk in less than a minute.
The 10,000 bug monsters that had lost their formation were crushed into a pile of mush as a consequence of the Destructive Divine Mammoth's vicious stomping. The other God Figurine's Combat Souls did not even have a chance of attacking.
Another wave of spiritual energy rushed into Lin Huang's body, and he gave it to the last God Figurine's Combat Soul, which was the Withered Flower. Lin Huang recalled it back into his body since it was on the brink of elevating to virtual god-level.
Although he could not obtain any Stairway Tree points, he was very pleased with the rewards he obtained from this checkpoint.
Excluding the falling of the cards, the battle alone elevated all of his God Figurine's Combat Souls although three of them had yet to complete their elevation. Nonetheless, the result surpassed his expectations.
He was considering purchasing many soul crystals after this checkpoint ended to push all of his God Figurine's Combat Souls to virtual god-level as quickly as he could. Before the checkpoint even ended, the plan was completed in advance.
As the three bug formations were 'killed' consecutively, more and more of them disintegrated after losing their Divine Power.
In less than five minutes, at least 100 out of the 300-odd bug formation beasts were killed. They were destroyed by the Destructive Divine Mammoth and the other six God Figurine's Combat Souls.
Another sea of spiritual energy rushed into Lin Huang's body, which he transferred into the Ninetails Lynx's body. The Ninetails Lynx's combat strength skyrocketed from Virtual God rank-1 to Virtual God rank-3.
Since it was not an elevation as major as imperial-level purple gold-rank to virtual god-level, the elevation was natural to the Ninetails Lynx because there were no physical changes at all. It was smooth and was completed within merely seconds.
As the Ninetails Lynx completed its elevation, it mangled the remaining 200 over bug formation beasts to death in less than a minute.
The ability of the millions of demigod-level bug monsters that had lost their protection plummeted since their Divine Power was drained. Within less than five minutes, the Destructive Divine Mammoth and the rest killed all of them.
Lin Huang gave the sea of spiritual energy to the Destructive Divine Mammoth and Nightmare Tapir, elevating the both of them to Virtual God rank-3. As for the remaining spiritual energy, Lin Huang gave them to the Undead Styx, the Shackle Serpent, and the Creation Clock. It was sufficient to get them to Virtual God rank-2.
In less than half an hour, the bug formations coming out of the hives were crushed by the seven God Figurine's Combat Souls. It was clearly beyond the expectations of the person who designed the checkpoint.
Despite there being millions of demigod-level bug monsters, Lin Huang eliminated all of them within less than half an hour.
The mission of the checkpoint was set for the player to only survive in the monster horde. The designer never thought that anyone would possibly clear the monster horde to the point that there was not even a single monster left.
Lin Huang, on the other hand, had no idea what the checkpoint designer was thinking. He was doubtful since nothing was happening to the hundreds of hives after waiting for one to two minutes.
The entire trial space fell into silence for a moment before a man's voice echoed all of a sudden, "You've passed the trial. Please be patient and wait for the half-hour to pass. The trial result will only be revealed after the 24-hour trial period has come to an end."
"So, is this the end of the trial? Don't I have another half an hour?" Lin Huang could not help but ask. He was not sure if the person could hear him or not.
The man only spoke after a moment of silence, "This trial is fixed for 24 hours. You have an extra half hour before you pass it in advance."
"I'll be bored having to wait for half an hour. Can you extend the trial?" Lin Huang asked in anticipation. He had won sweet rewards from the monster hordes and did not want to waste the last half hour of killing monsters.
Lin Huang seemed like an eager genius at school. 'There are too few questions in the exam paper. Can I have a few more? 150% is insufficient to show my ability. Can you add more questions to the paper so that I can achieve 250%?'
"M-More of the trial?!" Clearly, the man did not expect Lin Huang to come up with such an absurd request. He only spoke again after a moment of silence, sounding rather odd now, "If that's what you want, I'll fulfill your wish by giving you another round of trial. I hope that you won't regret it."
