1506 Seven Heads
After sizing up the Patchwork Monster briefly, Lin Huang launched his attack straight away.
With a shake of his sleeve cuffs, tens of thousands of telekinetic flying daggers directly transformed into tens of thousands of blood-colored lightning bolts that shot out.
Stitch was a monster skilled at close-quarter combat, and Lin Huang's current persona was only a psychic, so he had to make the first move to avoid his opponent drawing him into close quarters.
However, Stitch's dozens of wings vibrated almost simultaneously. Even the vibration frequency and amplitude of these wings of varying colors and shapes were completely different. However, the strange thing was Stitch's flight speed was quite amazing. Even its agility far surpassed what Lin Huang had expected.
Wings rapidly vibrating, Stitch's figure swiftly slipped through the dragnet set up by Lin Huang's telekinetic flying daggers and actually managed to evade all the attacks.
Not a single one of the tens of thousands of flying daggers managed to strike its body.
Lin Huang was a little surprised by this outcome.
This was because, in the materials provided by Buried Heaven, there was no mention of the Patchwork Monster being capable of such speed.
It was not that Buried Heaven did not know about this, but when he was organizing this set of materials for Lin Huang and the others, it had not crossed his mind that someone might have the ability to kill third-rank Heavenly Gods. Hence, the introductory information for Heavenly Gods above second-rank was very superficial.
Outside the secret territory, as they watched Stitch easily dodge Lin Huang's telekinetic flying daggers, many Heavenly God team leaders could not help but glance at Buried Heaven.
The team leader of God Capital asked straight away, "Senior Buried Heaven, in the materials you provided to Xiu Mu, was there detailed information on Stitch?"
"No." Buried Heaven shook his head, expressionless. "I gave the same information to several True Gods. I didn't expect that Xiu Mu would go hunt down a third-rank Heavenly God either."
Upon hearing Buried Heaven's words, everyone immediately felt that the chances of Lin Huang winning this battle had become much slimmer.
There were even several Heavenly God team leaders who were starting to regret not having placed their bets to start the wager earlier.
In fact, it was not just Death Sickle, but the few major grade-7 organizations as well that had given more or less the same information to their own respective trial participants.
This was because, in the secret prisoner territory, there was no precedent for killing third-rank Heavenly Gods.
They had not felt the need to give detailed information on Heavenly God prisoners of third-rank and above.
In the secret territory, after witnessing Stitch's flight speed and agility, Lin Huang was only slightly surprised.
The information that Buried Heaven had given out on Heavenly God prisoners second-rank and above was very concise. Lin Huang had noticed this right from the beginning and had more or less guessed the reason behind it. Therefore, before locking onto Stitch as his target, he had mentally prepared himself.
He had immediately made the first move as soon as he arrived, because for one, in his persona of a psychic, he could not afford to be drawn into close quarters. For another, he was actually testing his opponent's speed, agility, defenses, and other aspects as well.
Although he was slightly surprised that none of the tens of thousands of flying daggers hit his opponent, it was still within his expectations.
Now that the first round of testing had shown results, Lin Huang did not hesitate at all. From his sleeve cuffs, even more telekinetic flying daggers transformed into blood-colored lightning arcs and shot out.
Ten thousand, twenty thousand, thirty thousand… they accumulated to one hundred thousand and still continued to increase.
The Heavenly God team leaders outside the arena were shocked by this.
"There are already more than one hundred thousand flying daggers, and they're still increasing. How much more can his Divine Telekinesis continue splitting?!"
"The attacking speed of those telekinetic flying daggers has increased as well. It's reached the level of a third-rank Heavenly God psychic…"
"What I find most frightening is that he can control over one hundred thousand flying daggers and still infuse them with sequence power. This level of Divine Power consumption is massive. Logically speaking, no True God would be able to do this. I can't figure out how he's managed to do so!"
In the secret territory, the number of Lin Huang's telekinetic flying daggers kept increasing until they reached one hundred and eighty thousand. Stitch was finally unable to dodge and was struck for the first time.
However, Lin Huang also noticed that the attack—which had been imbued with lightning sequence power and more than a hundred types of Rule Bending Power—had been blocked by one of Stitch's wings. This was a dragon wing covered in scales, and the attack bounced right off without making even a dent in the monster's defenses.
'Not only is its speed amazing, but its defensive power as well. There are even several wings specifically equipped with defensive functions. Their defensive power should be superior to other parts of its body…'
Lin Huang continued quietly analyzing.
The truth of the matter was with his actual abilities at present, it would not be difficult for him to kill this Patchwork Monster, but his current persona was Xiu Mu. Moreover, there were countless monitors constantly trained on him, so there were many methods he could not use.
He also knew for certain that at this moment, many Heavenly God team leaders in the outside world were watching the live broadcast of his battle.
He could only look at things from Xiu Mu's viewpoint and consider how he might win this battle.
In the void, close to two hundred thousand telekinetic flying daggers formed a giant net, enveloping Stitch again and again.
However, Stitch was slippery as an eel and kept dodging with lightning speed. Not only was it extremely fast, but it was also remarkably agile. Only as a last resort would it resist the attacks from the telekinetic flying daggers by using force.
After all, every single one of the telekinetic flying daggers contained sequence power. Although Stitch would not be injured if it were to be hit, it would still use up a lot of its Divine Power. Therefore, Stitch kept trying its best to avoid getting hit.
However, with hundreds of thousands of flying daggers in pursuit, it only had the energy to dodge and defend itself, and it could not find the opportunity to get close to Lin Huang at all.
Lin Huang also easily dodged the occasional long-range attacks launched by Stitch.
Just like that, both sides entered a stalemate where neither one could do anything to the other.
Lin Huang's attacks did not manage to harm Stitch, and conversely, Stitch did not have the opportunity to attack Lin Huang up close.
On the surface, it seemed as if Lin Huang had managed to suppress Stitch.
However, the line of Heavenly God team leaders outside the secret territory was becoming less and less optimistic about the outcome of Lin Huang's battle.
This was because Lin Huang's combat method would consume huge amounts of his Divine Power and put a massive burden on his spirit.
Anyone could tell that the longer this battle dragged on, the slimmer the chances of Lin Huang winning.
This time, even Buried Heaven felt that it was impossible for Lin Huang to turn the tables.
This battle situation where neither could harm the other lasted for more than ten minutes, but the corners of Lin Huang's mouth curved upwards almost imperceptibly.
'So that's it…
'The seven heads each have their own role. One controls limb movement, one controls the flight of the wings, one controls defenses, one controls attacks, and one controls sight and other senses, while yet another one controls the consumption of Divine Power, and the last controls sequence and Rule Bending Powers."
After more than ten minutes of investigation, he finally had sufficient understanding of his current opponent's every aspect.
'If I get rid of one of its heads, what will happen?' Lin Huang wondered to himself, but in fact, he had already more or less guessed the answer to this question.
