"As expected, it's futile killing that the Multi-eyed Worm." Although what happened was expected, Lin Huang felt rather helpless upon seeing the two bug monsters 'resurrected' perfectly.
The battle became a 3-vs-7 one again as soon as the Multi-eyed Worm and the Superbrain Worm resurrected. It was like a cycle that could not be broken.
However, the three God Figurine's Combat Souls were still in high spirits. They did not lose their faith just yet because the few bug monsters resurrected again and again. Lin Huang had already told them secretly that the number of the resurrections was limited to three to five times at the most.
The seven bug monsters began learning their lesson from the battle that they had lost twice.
They mainly targeted the Nightmare Tapir now because its dreamland was just too powerful. Even the Superbrain Worm, a monster with a compelling soul, was hit when it had its guards down. They had to be wary of the Nightmare Tapir's technique now.
To defend themselves from the Nightmare Tapir's attack, the Superbrain Worm performed a few divine skill techniques as soon as it was resurrected. It covered all of the bug monsters including itself.
Lin Huang was watching the battle aside. He faintly guessed that this should not be a defense technique, but was most probably divine skill techniques targeting the Nightmare Tapir.
As expected, a layer of white glow appeared on the seven bug monsters' bodies as if a fog was lingering around them while the Nightmare Tapir's pupils turned black. They were not dragged into the Nightmare Tapir's dreamland, and their movements were not affected at all. Instead, they attacked the Nightmare Tapir directly.
The Superbrain Worm, the control bug, and the Multi-eyed Worm performed a spiritual attack on the Nightmare Tapir at the same time. They ignored the Ninetails Lynx and the Destructive Divine Mammoth completely.
The Ninetails Lynx went after the three bug monsters in the attempt to stop them from attacking the Nightmare Tapir. However, it was blocked by the Dragnet Worm's white thread web that it spat continuously.
It mauled with its sharp claws continuously, hewing the web again and again. Unfortunately, it was slower than the rate of the Dragnet Worm spitting webs.
Since there was no need to catch the Ninetails Lynx's trajectory, all it needed to do was to protect the Superbrain Worm and the other two bug monsters. It dominated the battle against the Ninetails Lynx.
The Ninetails Lynx began its long-distance attack since it failed to break through. Sharp air blades appeared with its mauling, but they were blocked by the threads the Dragnet Worm was spitting out.
On the other side, the Destructive Divine Mammoth was stuck with two bug monsters. One was attacking him from far away while another was attacking him at close range.
The six-winged bug monster that was entirely green attacked the Destructive Divine Mammoth by relying on its upper hand in speed. The continuous attack that felt like a housefly buzzing around annoyed the Destructive Divine Mammoth to no end.
The other bug monster that looked like a toad attacked from a distance whereby it would shoot saliva-like arrows. Although its attack could not harm the Destructive Divine Mammoth, the impact of it surprised it. Moreover, the timing of each of its attack was perfect which made the Destructive Divine Mammoth retreat and fail to help the Nightmare Tapir.
Meanwhile, the last six-armed sword-legged sword cultivator bug monster did not participate in the battle. Instead, it fixed its eyes on the Nightmare Tapir far away from the battle.
Its six sword arms were integrating at a speed that could be seen with naked eyes. They became a bloody-red single arm. The single arm was also a sword arm, it was red as if it was soaked in blood.
As a sword cultivator himself, Lin Huang sensed the change in the bug monster's aura. He could not help but have a grim expression now.
"That sword looks powerful. It's almost on the brink of level-6 Sword Dao! Furthermore, this sword feels like it can attack one's soul directly." Lin Huang's pupils shrunk when he noticed that.
That sword really might be able to kill God Figurine's Combat Souls!
Without much hesitation, Lin Huang sent a sea of spiritual energy into the Nightmare Tapir's body.
The Sword Dao in the sword cultivator bug monster was rising. On the other side, the Nightmare Tapir's combat strength experienced a continuous breakthrough from the sea of spiritual energy that Lin Huang sent.
Within a short few seconds, it elevated from Virtual God rank-5 to Virtual God rank-6 and then proceeded to Virtual God rank-7.
The Nightmare Tapir swung its trunk and released a raging roar.
The loud noise spread like ripples on water. The three bug monsters spat a mouthful of blood out while their spiritual aurae plummeted.
The Nightmare Tapir attacked the Superbrain Worm and the other two bug monsters as soon as its spiritual energy rose by two ranks. When it was on Virtual God rank-5, its spirit was already no less than the Superbrain Worm and the rest. However, it was suppressed by the trio's combined attack. Its spirit surpassed the three bug monsters since its combat strength had been upgraded by two ranks. Naturally, it would not let go of the opportunity to fight back. It released a sea of spiritual energy out like a tsunami, suppressing the three bug monsters by force.
The sword cultivator bug monster sensed the Nightmare Tapir's combat strength elevation from far away. It saw the Superbrain Worm and the two other bug monsters being hurt, but it did not panic at all because it was confident in its sword.
Just when its sword was fully charged and it was about to swing it, the Nightmare Tapir turned its head all of a sudden and stared at it with its black pupils.
The sword cultivator bug monster charged with its sword without hesitation. A crimson sword glow lit up like a bloody river flowing in the air.
In the next second, the Superbrain Worm and the other two bug monsters were drowned in the river and crushed into mush.
The sword cultivator bug monster stood where it was without moving in its previous stance. It resembled a sculpture now.
"That sword strike was really powerful! It was almost at the brink of level-6 Sword Dao. Unfortunately, it encountered the Nightmare Tapir," Lin Huang could not help but exclaim.
No matter how powerful the sword cultivator bug monster's ability was, its spirit was still too weak. It was far below the Superbrain Worm and the rest, so it was hypnotized when it encountered the Nightmare Tapir who could suppress the Superbrain Worm and the rest. It did not even realize that it was hypnotized the second the Nightmare Tapir turned around.
When it was hypnotized, it saw the three bug monsters as the Nightmare Tapir. That was how Lin Huang witnessed it decimating the three bug monsters.
After getting rid of the Superbrain Worm and the other two, he hypnotized the sword cultivator bug monster again and released a long roar with its head thrown back before the three dead bug monsters could be resurrected.
A sound wave spread thousands of times faster than the speed of sound. It spread through the Dragnet Worm and the other two bug monsters' bodies. Without the ability to fight back, they turned into hypnotized puppets.
Just when the Nightmare Tapir was done with that, the Superbrain Worm and the other two bug monsters' carcasses had disintegrated completely and recovered.
Lin Huang, who was watching the battle from far away, could not help but smirk when he saw the three beasts being 'resurrected' again. He revealed a teasing smirk.
"It was 3-vs-7 before, but it's finally 7-vs-3 now."
