Another World’s Versatile Crafting Master Chapter 586
Hence, even if the team of adventurers could gain the upper hand, their capability was still very limited. It would be impossible for them to destroy the bunch of magical beasts without paying a huge price. The price would be bloodshed and their lives. That was something the Legendary leaders did not wish to see happen.
The leaders brought subordinates to the Haiga Mountain Range to get them to help, and not to make them sacrifice their lives. They were all their elites, and none of them wished for there to be major losses. Hence, at this point, the several Legendary leaders could no longer stay idle. They had to hurry up and tackle the magical beasts based on the energy fluctuations before the beasts caused any lethal damage. They quickly left the team and stepped forth.
They were not worried about the effects that would be brought upon their team if they were unable to give orders. In fact, theyd already become spiritual symbols in their respective forces at this point. Hence, they would rarely waste their energy on miscellaneous issues which would be left to the professionals to handle.
The action taken by the Legendary leaders caused a huge fanfare amongst the crowd; even if they already possessed power that was beyond level-15, the Legendary leaders were still godly to them. The pressure brought by the 40-odd magical beasts no longer seemed so oppressive and suffocating, because the subordinates knew that their Legendary leaders were definitely able to solve all problems at hand. Hence, all they had to do now was to perform their obligations and duties.
At the same time, a fierce and menacing magical beast had already invaded the team, and the initially close-knit adventurer team seemed to have dissipated like a bubble that burst upon being touched. However, they were not really disintegrating, but were merely dispersing and regrouping into smaller teams to attack the magical beasts. After all, they were adventurers who were much more used to using this method rather than the formations of military to defend against the enemy.
A Warrior who held a strong shield bashed a magical beast with it in order to get its attention. The supporting magic also gave the Warrior a multicolored halo. An agile swordsman walked around the magical beast flexibly, and stabbed it with his sharp sword, causing it to bleed severely from its wound. A Bandit suddenly appeared behind the magical beast, and then pierced it with a poisonous dagger, and the deadly toxin quickly penetrated into its body.
A level-18 magical beast was absolutely terrifying, and the differences in level could not be compensated for or negated by numerical advantage most of the time. After all, there were only a few people who could really attack a magical beast. The level-18 magical beasts often had strong bodies, immeasurable power, and formidable capacity for magic. Hence, it would usually be impossible for an army of people to battle and destroy a level-18 magical beast.
Everyone knew that two level-15 combatants wouldnt make a level-16 one. Hence, everyone decided to cooperate and place more emphasis on devising tactics using their brains. They wanted to achieve the effects of increasing their power through meticulous cooperation and teamwork.
Since the day when human beings were created, humans knew that they were inherently weak, and that they had to cooperate with each other in order to survive. The various processes of life, be it during the hunting of prey or protecting themselves from foreign enemies, were opportunities for humans to continue honing their cooperative skills.
However, it still required a large amount of time for humans to develop seamless cooperation, even if they had the teachings and battle tactics that had been passed down from their forefathers. They had to train and improve through countless battles and fights. More importantly, they had to trust their allies and comrades unconditionally, and be assured that they would have each others back.
Although the strong were still at the top of the hierarchy in todays world, people usually worshiped individuals who were stronger, and were more focused on personal strength. Many idolized Geresco and aspired to be like him. However, they had all forgotten that even Geresco who was known as the God of Mages needed the help of his comrades during the war to overthrow the rule of the High Elves.
Unconditional trust in ones comrades seemed to be a far-fetched idea in a pragmatic world where interests and profits came first. No one dared to guarantee that they wouldnt be stabbed in the back by their comrade after giving them their complete trust. Interests could come in many forms, be it treasures, magical crystals, or gold coins.
If there was no trust among comrades, it would be impossible to achieve victory regardless of how superb their battle tactics might be. The so-called tacit understanding was actually established on the basis of trust. Without trust, nothing would work.
That was particularly evident in the Malfa Familys team of adventurers. Although the Malfa Family mobilized more than 60 mages who belonged to their own family, the hundred-odd adventurers were all recruited recently. These adventurers might not have known each other before, or perhaps only heard of each others names. However, they were definitely experienced adventurers since they could advance to level-15 and above. They were all familiar with various coordination tactics, but because of the lack of trust amongst them, they could not work with each other that all.
The Dark Blade was undoubtedly the strongest team amongst all; it was a fact that even Cheyenne could not deny. It wasnt just because they had a larger number of people, but because they could really trust each other, and had built a tacit understanding which allowed them to maximize their strength.
The Dark Blade did not seem to hesitate at all despite being faced with the crazy attack of the magical beasts. They quickly divided into smaller teams, each composed of a fixed number of people. Among them, there were various occupational combinations which would besiege a magical beast. That was the classic method of hunting and killing magical beasts.
Actually, it was understandable. The old den of the Dark Blade was in the periphery of the Haiga Mountain Range. Although hunting for magical beasts had not been an important source of income for the Dark Blade, it had already become a tradition over the years. The elites had plenty of actual combat experience too. Each small team worked for many years to develop the seamless teamwork and trust they now had.
The battle going on in the battlefield was extremely intense, with the sounds of explosions, the roars of magical beasts, and the hollering of warriors everywhere. In fact, it was just as intense as a war between two countries. However, the battles of the Legendary masters going on not too far away from them were much more peaceful compared to this. Although they were all facing two or three menacing magical beasts each, they could still cope with them effortlessly.
However, Lin Li, who was also a Legendary figure, showed no intention to attack. He stood on top of a huge tree, and watched the battle that was going on in the battlefield which was full of the various teams. He seemed to be searching for a target, but did not look like he was going to make a move. The Vampire Norfeller was right next to him. Although he was holding onto his dagger that was placed near his waist, he dared not do anything without Lin Lis permission.
"Its almost time. You may go," Lin Li, who scanned the battlefield for a long time, said to Norfeller calmly without even turning around. Norfeller bent forward slightly, and immediately darted towards the battlefield.
Although he was an Undead creature, Norfellers advancement was extremely slow, just like for other Vampires. However, his abilities increased rapidly, and he was in fact already physically at level-19 even though he had yet to reach the Legendary-level.
On the battlefield, the Dark Blades small team was in the midst of surrounding a magical beast which was covered in blood. It no longer looked as menacing as it had been when it first appeared, even though it still had a crazy look in its eyes. However, as itd lost an excessive amount of blood, and the toxins began to affect it, its movements became extremely restricted.
When a swordsman of the Dark Blade was about to stab the chest of the magical beast, a dark shadow bolted into the team like lightning. He then heard the magical beast roaring loudly before growing silent again.
When the magical beast roared, everyone thought that the dark shadow was there to help them, although they were already almost going to defeat the magical beast. However, they still had to acknowledge the good intentions. When the magical beasts corpse appeared in front of them, they were immediately infuriated. There was a huge hole that was pierced through the magical beasts body, and the magical crystal that was supposed to be inside it had already gone missing. Clearly, the dark shadow was there to take advantage of them.
Lin Li was still standing on top of the tree, feeling pleased with Norfellers actions. It was no wonder that Norfeller was his sworn servant, for he could totally read Lin Lis mind.
Borg was not too far away from the battlefield, and was currently fighting two Gryphons. Although the Magical Domains of the Legendary-mages were formidable, it was not easy to maneuver them. In order to ensure that he had enough mental strength to deal with the possible changes after arriving in the ruins of Titans, he had no choice but to use these two conventional ways to teach the two Gryphons a lesson.
Although the Gryphons in the Royal Knights army were domesticated, they were still difficult to deal with. Compared to wild Gryphons, though, the domesticated ones were like tigers without teeth, and could only be used to scare timid enemies. The wild level-18 Gryphons were much more difficult to deal with than other Gryphons of the same level.
Borg had been carefully observing Lin Lis actions in a bid to see if the young Legendary-mage was as formidable as the rumors made him to be. However, he almost fell from the sky after witnessing that sight, and he cursed in his head furiously. Damn it, this Felic is really as shameless as hes rumored to be. Forget it if you sat back and did nothing while everyone else was fighting their guts out, yet you actually took advantage in the end?? At the end of the day, youre still a fellow Legendary-realm powerhouse. Could you behave like one?
 Remember that they have that blood oath thingy going on.
