The Mutri Great Cavalry!
Wang Chong's pupils constricted as he recognized the mighty flood of elite cavalry approaching him. He had not expected Dalun Ruozan to have also brought this supreme force of cavalry with him on this excursion. The Mutri Great Cavalry, the Celestial Wolf Cavalry, and the three Imperial Great Generals presented enough force to deal a destructive blow to Wang Chong and his five thousand Wushang Cavalry.
In truth, Dalun Ruozan was making no attempt to hide his intentions. As he spoke, the encirclement formed from the elite forces of two empires was rapidly closing. At the same time, two heavy and droning streams of energy locked onto Wang Chong.
Wang Chong felt his body sink and gave a tiny grimace. But this was not the end, and with a bang, a third stream of Great General–level energy flew through the air and locked onto Wang Chong.
Duwu Sili had chosen to join the fray.
Although he didn't want to see Dalun Ruozan and Huoshu Huicang, Duwu Sili had chosen without hesitation to work with them. As an Imperial Great General, he would prioritize the overarching situation. The strategic objective would always surpass individual wants and grudges.
"Brat, you can blame no one else. I said before, you are too proud!" Duwu Sili growled.
He had originally planned to make a private deal with Wang Chong, but Dalun Ruozan had completely ruined his plans. Rather than let the other party leave, it was far better to finish him off once and for all. If he could capture Wang Chong alive, that would be the best result. At the very least, it would be far more useful to interrogate him than Chen Bin.
The situation was instantly reversed, and the five thousand Wushang Cavalry were now in an unprecedented crisis. As Li Siye, Huang Botian, and Kong Zi-an saw the soldiers and three Great Generals close around them, all of them began to pale.
All of them could smell the odor of death like never before.
Just when Dalun Ruozan's trap was complete and the two armies had surrounded the Wushang Cavalry and were preparing to attack, Wang Chong began to laugh, no tension to be seen on his face. This unusual attitude left everyone dazed. Even Dalun Ruozan couldn't help but stop.
"Dalun Ruozan, do you really think you can keep me?"
Wang Chong's voice was extremely confident, and as his gaze whisked past Dalun Ruozan, Huoshu Huicang, and Dusong Mangpoje, a tide of energy surged out from his body. There was no fear on his face, and he appeared to believe that everything had been taken care of.
The sight of Wang Chong's expression made Dalun Ruozan's heart thump in shock. This was not his first clash with Wang Chong, and no one understood more than him just how crafty and hard to deal with he was. His every step was only carried out after long and careful thought. Even though he seemed sloppy and reckless, he was laying traps with every move, and when one was at their most arrogant was precisely when one would fail.
Dalun Ruozan had learned this harsh lesson in the war of the southwest. Almost instinctively, Dalun Ruozan looked behind him. But the darkness was quiet and empty.
"Heheh, Wang Chong, I know that you're as crafty as a fox, but I would really like to see how you plan to escape this. Three Great Generals and countless elite cavalrymen are here. If you can escape this, I can really call you the War God of the Great Tang. Even Gao Xianzhi will have to admit his inferiority."
Dalun Ruozan grinned.
Without the slightest warning, Dalun Ruozan shot a glance at Huoshu Huicang. Speed was paramount in warfare, and a long delay could allow more problems to occur. No matter what tricks Wang Chong had up his sleeve, they were currently too far away to be of any help. If they could kill Wang Chong as quickly as possible, everything would come to an end.
A Great Tang without Wang Chong might still be powerful, but in Dalun Ruozan's eyes, it was no longer worth that much apprehension.
Wang Chong, I'm sorry. Even though I wanted to have a contest of strategy with you, in the end, both schemes and martial arts are for the sake of victory. I trust that if it were me in this situation… you would do the same, Dalun Ruozan said silently as he looked at the enormous Godking Yama.
Dalun Ruozan might have been full of regret, but Huoshu Huicang had no such distractions. Soldiers had a duty to follow orders, and he was never one to doubt Dalun Ruozan's commands. In a flash, he had pulled out his dazzling golden-red saber and leaped into the air, flying like a shooting star toward the Godking Yama.
At the same time, a golden light began to explode from Huoshu Huicang, and then this Great General of the Ngari Royal Lineage began to rapidly grow in size. In the blink of an eye, he had become an enormous golden Buddha. The powerful energy raging around it battered at everyone's senses.
Before Huoshu Huicang could arrive, a massive golden vajra pestle impacted against the dazzling saber energy Huoshu Huicang had unleashed. The world was illuminated in golden radiance. Upon reaching the Brigadier General level, all of Wang Chong's Stellar Energy had become golden, and this clash of Stellar Energy threatened to tear apart the darkness.
Huoshu Huicang's attack acted as the opening curtain for this lethal trap targeting Wang Chong, the rising star of the Great Tang.
Without any warning, Dusong Mangpoje pulled out his saber, his eyes flashing with cold light as he rose from the earth and shot like a blazing comet toward Wang Chong.
At the same time, Duwu Sili also moved. He had not obtained the secret of formation phenomena yet and had no desire to kill Wang Chong so quickly, but despite all that, he still made the wise decision. Working together with Huoshu Huicang and Dusong Mangpoje, he attacked Wang Chong.
The air howled with a sonic boom as Duwu Sili used the Celestial Wolf's Divine Procession to shoot toward Wang Chong like an arrow.
In this moment, three Great Generals attacked together, causing the world to tremble in terror at the dreadful power they unleashed.
On the ground, Li Siye, Kong Zi-an, and the others all cried out in panic, their faces deathly pale.
Shamask and Chekun Benba revealed faint smiles.
As Dusong Mangpoje flew through the air at Wang Chong, he suddenly heard the earth explode open. An enormous black ape arm rose from the earth, and its palm swatted away Dusong Mangpoje like it was swatting a fly.
Rooooar! The giant ape's bellows caused the earth to shiver. Under countless shocked eyes, this enormous being rose from the earth to fully reveal itself.
"Waaaaa!" The abrupt appearance of this enormous creature made all the Mutri Great Cavalry recoil in shock and begin fleeing.
On the other side, the thousands of Turkic cavalry, including the Celestial Wolf Cavalry, also began to scream as they fell back.
Duwu Sili's eyes went wide like he had seen a ghost, and he began to rapidly back up.
Duwu Sili felt like he had been struck by lightning, his mind in turmoil and even somewhat at a loss. He had never expected the giant ape to appear before him like this. The ape's offensive and defensive capabilities were far superior to those of any Imperial Great General. It was simply not something he could deal with.
This Behemoth was enough to change the course of an entire battle.
Most incomprehensible to Duwu Sili was that he had been very careful to ensure that Wang Chong had not brought this giant ape with him. And there was no way Wang Chong would be able to fool him, not unless…
As if understanding something, Duwu Sili clenched his fists in anger. But despite his anger and unwillingness, Duwu Sili had no other choice than to temporarily evade the Behemoth.
Without the assistance of Dusong Mangpoje, he and Huoshu Huicang would find it nearly impossible to swiftly kill Wang Chong. If the Behemoth were to join the fight, not only would the Western Turkic army suffer heavy casualties, both he and Huoshu Huicang would find it hard to protect themselves and were highly likely to die.
Boom! In the distance, the giant ape stomped down. "Ah!" Screams came out of a churning cloud of dust as several dozen Mutri Great Cavalry were crushed into paste, even their armor being crunched into round metal disks.
Duwu Sili grew even more anxious at this sight and immediately called out, "Back! Retreat! All soldiers, withdraw!"
"Hahaha, Duwu Sili, why are you in such a rush? Didn't you want to attack us just now? Why leave now?" Wang Chong chortled.
Boom! As Wang Chong spoke, the giant ape punched, immediately sending shockwaves through the earth. Several dozen Mutri Great Cavalry were immediately pulverized by the giant ape's fist while even more were thrown into the air by the intense vibrations.
Plush! While still in midair, the chests of these Mutri Great Cavalry shook and they vomited blood, severe injuries having been inflicted on their bodies.
Although the Mutri Great Cavalry had formidable defenses, they were far from a match for the Consecrated, which could injure even Great Generals.
The giant ape roared as its massive body fell upon the Mutri Great Cavalry like a dreadful war machine. In a flash, they were sent fleeing in every direction.
