Shadow Hack Chapter 509
Suddenly, a loud wail echoed from far away, which caused Li Qinghong's body to start trembling. She instantly recalled a scene from half a month ago and immediately forgot about the issue of the innate expert armor being real or fake. Her complexion changed, and she was about to warn Li Yunmu.
But it was too late!
Li Yunmu narrowed his eyes and halted his movements immediately. In front of him, the demonic energy grew even more rich, just one step short of materializing. Most of it was concentrated in the forest in front of him.
Far away, some black shadows gradually appeared in the forest filled with demonic energy.
One, two, three, ten, a hundred, several hundred, several thousands, and even more. All of a sudden, Li Yunmu and Li Qinghong were besieged by countless enemies.
Their numbers were indeed impossible to count!
"This region is the source of the demonic energy, but when I infiltrated it, only several tens of such demonic figures appeared How can there be so many all of a sudden?" Li Qinghong involuntarily cried out. She couldn't control her shivering.
After all was said and done, she was still a woman. Regardless of how formidable was her strength or how staunch her willpower, when she confronted the strange demonic creatures, she still felt extreme loathing towards them and the desire to resist. It was all due to her base instincts.
When she had been captured alive by those twenty-thirty demonic creatures before. They had wanted to peel off her clothes and occupy her, thoroughly dirtying her body and spirit.
If not for an elder of Black Spirit Valley who had arrived at that time and loudly commanded that she was to be tied to the stele so that her fate could be decided later, she didn't even dare to imagine what would've happened to her.
Although the matter had happened half a year ago, she didn't mention a single word of it in front of Li Yunmu. Yet when she saw them again, she still felt a shiver run down her spine.
"Very simple, because they already know that I've charged into their territory."
Li Yunmu's attention was completely focused on the demonic creatures of the Black Spirit World, to the extent that he didn't notice Li Qinghong's reaction.
"Seems like they have dispatched all the demonic creatures this time. I'm afraid that their plan has already entered the most crucial stage, so not even a single sage flux expert can be spared.
"But, if they naively believe that by relying on these demonic creatures, they could stop my, Li Yunmu's steps, they are gravely underestimating me."
It wasn't that Li Yunmu was being arrogant, but that he didn't fear the attacks of lower demonic life-forms. Regardless of whether it was his absolute defense or his eleven shadows, he didn't fear being attacked from all sides by weak things. It wouldn't matter even if he was surrounded by several thousands or even tens of thousands of such demonic creatures.
He glanced at the densely packed crowd and asked the system to scan his surroundings. It relayed that the strength of the majority of the creatures based on their presences was between one hundred and fifty to one hundred and eighty points.
If he was some ordinary flux expert with strength equivalent to that of Li Qinghong, then even if one hundred of them entered this region, they definitely wouldn't be able to leave.
The strength of one hundred and fifty to one hundred and eighty was already equivalent to high level flux experts. Many of them were extremely close to the upper limit of one hundred and eighty points of flux energy strength of the majority of flux experts.
If the special and unique attacks of these demonic creatures were also factored in, then it wasn't that surprising that Li Qinghong would have been captured by some twenty-thirty of them.
Apart from the majority of the demonic creatures who possessed the strength ranging from the high level to great circle flux experts, there were still several hundred who were more formidable.
The demonic energy emitted from their bodies was stronger and had already reached the point of materialization. He could sense it from afar.
The strength of these more formidable demonic creatures had already surpassed the flux expert realm and was comparable to that of great flux experts.
Based on their energy fluctuations, the majority of them had the flux energy strength of five hundred or higher. The higher ones even reached seven hundred.
After the scan, Li Yunmu finally understood what sort of capital the third tier power which occupied one corner of the world possessed.
An ordinary third tier sect could never possess tens of thousands of high level or even great circle flux experts. Even if the disciples of Black Spirit Valley weren't count in and only the power concealed in the Black Spirit World was considered, it would be enough to be show the sect's dominance.
After all, it also possessed more than a hundred more formidable demonic creatures whose strength was equivalent to great flux experts.
However, all of this was completely useless in front of Li Yunmu.
Although they possessed higher numbers, they wouldn't be able to break his defense or go through his shield. And he also still possessed the Azure Dragon Expert Armor now.
"My shadows, exterminate them."
Li Yunmu fully understood that since not one sage expert had shown up, it was certain that they were at the most crucial stage.
The time which he had set aside for destroying their plan was not sufficient anymore.
Thus, he had no other methods. Without talking any nonsense, he waved his hand, and the first ten shadows were summoned.
Li Yun, Li Feng, Li Tian, Li De, Li Mei, Li Lan and the others appeared and charged toward the surrounding demonic creatures whose numbers still seemed to be increasing. The dark shapes were filled with killing intent.
Given Li Yunmu's increase in strength, it was clear that his shadows would have become even more formidable. Not only did they possess the cultivation methods and deadly tricks practiced by Li Yunmu, they also had the absolute defense of the same layer.
It wouldn't be the slightest exaggeration to say that if not for the innate expert armor, which far surpassed the synchronizing ability of the shadows, Li Yunmu would even be able to ignore sage flux experts.
Although Li Yun and the others didn't have Li Yunmu's innate expert armor and didn't possess its special abilities, they had also followed their master and risen to great flux expert realm.
Their strength had also undergone substantial increase. At the very least, each of the shadows possessed nine hundred great flux strength, the same as Li Yunmu.
Thus, each of them had the strength to easily deal with ordinary great flux experts. After all, they also possessed the results of Li Yunmu practicing the formidable body tempering techniques.
In the first moment of confrontation, the shadows chopped down a large number of the demonic creatures.
As for the special attacks of the demonic creatures, they were completely useless on Li Yun and they others. They would have been effective if Li Yun and the others were ordinary human cultivators and could be corroded by the demonic energy, but unfortunately, Li Yun and the others weren't human.
They originated from shadow life-forms and thus weren't influenced by the attacks of demonic energy.
What added to the despair of the demonic creatures was that their ability to remain undying had suddenly disappeared in front of Li Yunmu.
"How is that even possible? Why aren't they resurrecting? Something is fishy here! This is the region where the demonic energy of the Black Spirit World originates, so why aren't they resurrecting?"
Deep in the forest, a man was panicking at that moment.
That was because he had discovered that there was something wrong with the situation outside. After being killed by the eleven shadows summoned by the enemy, the demonic creatures under his control didn't resurrect which should have happened under ordinary circumstances.
The forest was the region where the demonic energy of the Black Spirit World originated. As long as it didn't disappear, the demonic creatures would continue to resurrect again and again. But for some reason, they were completely obliterated as soon as they died.
"Are you talking about them? It's not that they cannot be resurrected, but that the region where they are resurrected isn't here anymore."
Suddenly, Li Yunmu appeared by the side of the person who'd just been talking to himself. He raised a finger and pointed toward the breastplate of his Azure Dragon Expert Armor.
Even Li Yunmu hadn't thought that the special environment required to trigger the effect of the black ghost king armor which he had assimilated into his innate expert armor would be this forest.
One of the effects of that ability was to collect the souls of all dead creatures.
