Another World’s Versatile Crafting Master Chapter 587
At this moment, Lin Li suddenly raised his head and looked up at the sky, only to sense a strong aura rushing towards the battlefield. In the blink of an eye, a small black spot in the distance quickly enlarged, and a menacing face appeared in front of him. The figure had a cat-like face and wings that spanned more than 10 meters. It was covered in black feathers with metallic luster, and had a pair of paws with sharp claws that were like sickles. Electrical arcs coiled around its body, producing snapping sounds.
Lin Li had arrived in this world for a long time, and he could immediately tell that it was a Thunder Valiant Beast which definitely possessed level-19 powers.
It was said that such beasts loved bathing in lightning, and could also transform their energy into their own. The people of Anril found lightning to be extremely powerful, and they saw it as a punishment of the gods, yet Thunder Valiant Beast could soak in it and absorb the power of the gods. It was no longer a matter of strength. Hence, in many ancient tribes, Thunder Valiant Beast was termed as a divine bird and the pet of heavens.
Of course, the mages were not that afraid of or respectful towards the gods, because the magic that they had developed and studied was already touching the divine realm. However, they did respect the power of the gods, and firmly believed that they could reach the same level, or perhaps even surpass them. In the eyes of religious followers, they were disrespecting the gods and showing their contempt. However, it was just an expression of their respect.
The so-called heavenly birds like Thunder Valiant Beast were nothing more than magical beasts that manipulated lightning. Thunderbolts came from the sky; hence, people tended to associate them with the gods. Although Lin Li had transmigrated to Anril, he still knew that gods did exist in this world, though there was a huge difference between such a god and those that were omnipresent and omnipotent.
Thunder Valiant Beast was level-19, and had the most powerful lightning force. Since the four other Legendary masters could barely cope with it, Lin Li knew that he had to do something. Most importantly, it wasnt appropriate for him to vie with the four other Legendary masters for the magical crystals while they were fighting off the magical beasts. Norfeller did not have that power, either. If someone were to nab the Thunder Valiant Beast, wouldnt he be unable to get the level-19 magical crystal?
On the battlefield under the tree, Norfeller resolutely carried out Lin Lis instructions. He only launched a lethal attack when the magical beast was almost destroyed, killing it with a single shot, and taking the magic crystal away. Lin Li was very satisfied with his subordinates performance. They were all in cooperation anyway. The wealthy and established Malfa Family and Dark Blade wouldnt care about these magical crystals, would they? Lin Li looked up at Thunder Valiant Beast that was in the sky, slowly levitated upwards, whipped out the Helios Scepter, and flew towards Thunder Valiant.
The appearance of the Thunder Valiant Beast had long caught everyones attention, and plenty of people knew how powerful it was. The people surrounding level-18 magical beasts were already finding it tough to manage killing them. If the Thunder Valiant Beast were to join the fight, it would only make matters worse, and the magical beasts would have a strong member added to their force. The dynamics of the battle would probably change immediately, and casualties would be inevitable.
However, everyone felt relieved when Lin Li launched his attack. Regardless of how young he might be, he was still an actual Legendary-mage. Even if he couldnt get rid of the Thunder Valiant Beast immediately, he could at least buy some time until the masters returned.
Compared with the other two Legendary-mages, Lin Li was much more domineering, and he managed to shield himself entirely with his Magical Domain with the wave of Helios Scepter. He then charged towards the Thunder Valiant Beast. He had an insane amount of mental strength to begin with, and on top of that, he had the Evil Eye Tyrant to give him additional strength at all times. The mental strength that he now possessed was beyond imaginable, and the release of an ice Magical Domain did not cost him much at all.
"Young man!" Borg was rather relieved to see that Lin Li had launched his attack, but as soon as he saw Lin Li exhibiting his Magical Domain, he thought to himself, Well, this young Legendary-mage is only 20 years old, after all. He still doesnt consider everything carefully before acting. But thats okay. I know hes in an alliance with Cheyenne, and the more he contributes, the weaker the alliance would be. That would be great for our Dark Blade too.
Likewise, Cheyenne had also noticed the battle in the sky. He shared the same thoughts as Borg, but he was much more worried and full of complaints. He didnt think there was anything wrong with Lin Li refusing to launch an attack, because he felt that the Dark Blade ought to waste more of their resources and contribute more since they were stronger. However, theyd now lost another portion of power because Lin Li had resorted to using his Magical Domain before even finding the balance.
The Thunder Valiant Beast was actually almost in the Legendary-realm, and had an extraordinary amount of lightning power. Hence, the magic it exhibited slightly resembled a prototype of the magical domain. Seemingly having sensed the magical waves that came from Lin Li, the Thunder Valiant Beast shrieked loudly before flapping its wings vigorously and starting to rampage.
Although Lin Li had already decided to launch an attack, he wouldnt use up everything he had against the Thunder Valiant Beast. Hence, he had merely exhibited his Frost Domain, which was the most common amongst Legendary-mages. He made himself the center of it, and there seemed to be dark fumes of ink above his head which soon formed a huge vortex in the middle, which looked like it was a gateway to another world.
Compared to a real Magical Domain, the Thunder Valiant Beasts magic seemed to be a bit inadequate, for it was immediately suppressed and undermined by Lin Lis Frost Domain. Originally, it seemed that the two powers were the same, but after the two domains clashed, the area of Thunder Valiant Beasts lightning bolts seemed to have decreased significantly. Thunder Valiant Beast howled and grunted in exertion, which resembled the daunting sounds of necromagic.
However, this interference had no effect on Lin Li at all, and the repression by Frost Domain continued to increase. There seemed to be a ray of light in the center of the huge vortex in the dark clouds over his head. A frost bird that was of the same size as the Thunder Valiant Beast pounced onto the latter, followed by a few other frost birds
Those who were forced to end the battle on the battlefield could no longer be bothered to worry about the magical crystals being snatched away, and were all looking up at the magical battle that was going on in the sky. Those of the other professions were just watching for the sake of thrill and excitement, but the mages were feeling bitter. The Legendary mage in the sky was only 20 years old. How enviable.
After all, there were four other Legendary-mages in the team of adventurers apart from Lin Li. Although the level-18 magical beasts were strong and tyrannical, they did not let the battle go on for long. Once the four Legendary masters freed up their hands to launch their attacks, the battle would be ended faster. It was precisely because of this that both parties would get the chance to grab some magical crystals. Otherwise, they might never get a single piece of magical crystal at the rate that Norfeller was going.
A bullet from the Dragon Gun shuttled through the frost birds and hit the Thunder Valiant Beast right in its heart. A level-19 magical crystal then darted out of the dead Thunder Valiant Beast and landed in Lin Lis hand. Lin Li did not let its body go to waste, either, and kept it in Ring of Endless Storm, leaving behind just a few fluttering feathers.
Lin Li was just being kind and giving others some of the remnants. Otherwise, they might not even get their hands on the bodies of the magical beasts if Norfeller took those too. No one dared to complain, and they had no choice but to comfort themselves by telling themselves that it wasnt too bad to share the corpses of the magical beasts, even though the magical crystals were the most valuable.
Lin Li descended and wiped the sweat off of his head ostensibly. He heaved a long sigh, and complained to Cheyenne and others, "Dear Masters, arent we allies? Why didnt you give me a hand? This fellow has really made me waste so much energy."
Despite finding Lin Li to be shameless deep down, Borg remained smiling, and said, "Hehe, its been hard on you, Master Felic. Weve decided to get some rest here today. Well continue with the journey tomorrow."
Lin Li didnt have any opinion to express. Anyway, there were only two people on his side, and it didnt matter what the arrangement was. He scanned his surroundings to see that everyone else was getting busy, some taking care of the injured, while others were dissecting the bodies of the magical beasts. Although the team was very strong, it would be impossible for there to be no injured or casualties. Lin Li had already deduced that the corpses of the magical beasts were of no value.
However, at this moment, he suddenly thought of another problem. There was nothing too surprising about encountering wolves and magical beasts in the forest. However, the corpses on the ground seemed to be of the same species. Not only were the 40-odd level-18 magical beasts not beasts that lived in groups, they were also from the same species, thus making it rather strange.
Since the magical beasts were all above level-18, they all ought to have their own respective territories. They were naturally hostile towards each other, and would immediately get into a fight in the past. However, they actually united and launched an attack on the adventurer team. There was only one explanation for it, and that was that some force had driven them to carry out this attack.
The magical beast which was of the highest level and strength was undoubtedly the Thunder Valiant Beast that Lin Li had just killed. However, the problem was that it was too much of an exaggeration for it to defeat 40-odd level-18 magical beasts even if it were level-19. When Lin Li trapped the Thunder Valiant Beast in his Frost Domain, he did not detect any signals from the outside world. Hence, the leader was definitely incompetent.
Or perhaps there could be another force manipulating the magical beasts behind this facade?
