Chapter 510 - G.o.d Descends
At this moment, the black altar radiated a blood-red glow. In the darkness, it was an extraordinarily eye-catching.
The ground surrounding the altar also began emitting plumes of bright red mist. A small cyclone that had appeared above the alter tugged the mist towards its core. Gradually, the s.p.a.ce in the storm’s center gradually began to crack.
A moment later, this spatial crack formed a portal.
The instant the spatial portal was complete, the area around the Towers of Death froze. It was as if a separate, miniature world had formed around the Towers of Death, and no object from the outside world could affect anything that occurred inside this place.
All of s.h.i.+ Feng’s communication with the outside world was blocked as well, every name on his friends list having turned a dull gray; he was unable to contact anybody.
The surrounding air felt as heavy as mercury, and s.h.i.+ Feng felt as if his every action was heavily restrained.
Inside this region, s.h.i.+ Feng felt like a candle flickering in the wind; his life could be extinguished at any moment.
Meanwhile, this was all due to the horrific pressure from the spatial portal.
“Just what is inside that spatial portal?”
s.h.i.+ Feng widened his eyes in shock. He tried to glimpse at what was inside the spatial portal, yet, as if a strange power shrouded the portal, not even s.h.i.+ Feng, with his extraordinary dynamic vision, could see anything inside it. However, there was one thing that his brain urged him to do right now.
The pressure leaking from the spatial portal was sufficient to freeze the entire s.p.a.ce surrounding the Towers of Death and create a separate world.
This was the first time s.h.i.+ Feng had ever encountered such a situation.
While s.h.i.+ Feng struggled to recover from his shock, the hundreds of thousands of Orcs surrounding the pitch-black altar suddenly turned into blood mist.
Moreover, the transformation had been completely silent.
The originally crowded fortress around the Towers of Death had suddenly become a ghost town.
The abrupt change was enough to instill utter terror.
For a time, the blood-red runes around the alter forcefully sucked in the blood mist, intensifying the runes’ glow. Simultaneously, the portal above the altar grew, the pressure it emitted increasing as well.
The air that had previously felt as heavy as mercury now felt as dense as fine steel. Now, s.h.i.+ Feng could not move in the slightest.
“Is this Divine Might?” A possibility suddenly flashed in s.h.i.+ Feng’s mind.
Divine Might... It was something that s.h.i.+ Feng had felt more than a few times before. As long as Divine Might was activated, any players within the affected area would receive various sorts of suppression. Moreover, the wider the gap in tiers, the greater the suppression would be. Only players of the same tier would be unaffected by Divine Might. However, of all the Divine Might s.h.i.+ Feng had experienced before, not one had rendered him completely incapable of movement.
Before s.h.i.+ Feng could reflect more on the situation, the Orc King Tresik finally finished chanting his incantation. Suddenly, the area around the Towers of Death fell eerily silent.
s.h.i.+ Feng noticed hints of excitement and longing on Tresik’s ferocious face.
At this moment, the spatial portal blotted out the area above the black altar. If the portal descended now, s.h.i.+ Feng did not doubt that it would devour the ma.s.sive black altar whole.
However, the black portal did not descend. Instead, the portal released a loud sound resembling the cracking of gla.s.s.
It was as if something inside the portal were trying to smash its way through the mysterious power surrounding it.
s.h.i.+ Feng began to have a bad feeling about this.
If a G.o.d truly descended, then he would die with 100% certainty.
A G.o.d possessed extremely acute senses. Even over a thousand-yard-distance, a G.o.d could discover a player long before that player discovered said G.o.d.
In the past, plenty of players had been very interested in G.o.ds. Unfortunately, many Tier 4 players had not been able to get even 3,000 yards close to the G.o.ds before the divine beings swatted them like flies. Meanwhile, Tier 5 players had survived the wrath of G.o.ds, but only Tier 6 players qualified to challenge them. Even then, they only ‘qualified.’
At this moment, s.h.i.+ Feng was less than 2,000 yards away from the altar. If a G.o.d descended, it would discover him immediately and send him to his death with a single slap.
“It shouldn’t be able to descend, right?” s.h.i.+ Feng could feel that the mysterious power surrounding the spatial portal was already at its limits.
In the blink of an eye, a gigantic hand that blotted out the sky suddenly emerged from the portal. In the face of this hand, even the ma.s.sive altar seemed like a small toy.
Fortunately, the instant this hand descended, countless golden chains suddenly emerged from the sky. These golden chains immediately bound the hand, preventing it from moving.
“The Chains of Order!” s.h.i.+ Feng breathed a sigh of relief at the sudden appearance of these fine chains. “Sure enough, it is impossible for a G.o.d to appear here.”
Although the golden chains were thin, they contained an immeasurable amount of power. Even G.o.ds could not fight these chains.
Yet, this ma.s.sive hand abruptly twitched, and a single item fell from its palm. This item released a dazzling golden glow that illuminated the entire fortress around the Towers of Death.
The moment this item landed in front of the Orc King, the gigantic hand in the sky retreated through the spatial portal.
Peace returned to the Towers of Death.
“Did that G.o.d break open the spatial portal just to give the Orc King an item?” s.h.i.+ Feng was utterly stunned.
An item that was obtained from a G.o.d through the sacrifice of hundreds of thousands of Orcs… Even if s.h.i.+ Feng could not clearly see what that item was, but judging from how the Orc King had willingly made such an immense sacrifice, it was definitely an extraordinary treasure.
If he could steal it…
However, s.h.i.+ Feng promptly shook his head, removing the thought from his mind.
Only those who wanted to give up on life would attempt to steal an item from a Mythic Monster. It would be no different than trying to steal from White River City’s Magistrate, the Tier 4 Great Wizard Weissman.
Just as s.h.i.+ Feng was about to turn and leave…
A figure suddenly came flying towards the Towers of Death from a distance. The figure flew at a tremendous speed, several times faster than even s.h.i.+ Feng when he had Wind Rider activated. In just a few seconds, the originally seed-sized figure grew to the size of an ordinary human.
“Sky Knight?” s.h.i.+ Feng could not help his shock. The new arrival was actually a human NPC.
Moreover, it was the Tier 4 hidden cla.s.s, Sky Knight.
His body exuding a multicolored brilliance, the Sky Knight immediately charged towards the Orc King.
Meanwhile, as if receiving the arrival of a great enemy, the Orc King Tresik immediately tried to collect the flas.h.i.+ng golden treasure.
However, the Sky Knight had obviously prepared for this situation. With a shout, he pointed his sword towards the heavens.
Suddenly, a t.i.tanic golden sword appeared above the Orc King. This golden sword then transformed into a streak of light as it descended towards the Mythic Tresik.
s.h.i.+ Feng’s jaw dropped.
This Sky Knight actually knew the Tier 4 forbidden move, Firmament Flash.
Forbidden moves were Taboo Skills in G.o.d’s Domain. Firmament Flash was labeled “Taboo” because the skill possessed overly destructive power. In addition, the skill was extremely difficult to learn. Cla.s.ses of the same tier had no way of learning it.
The Tier 4 Firmament Flash could rival even a Tier 5 skill. Even though the Orc King Tresik was a Mythic Monster, an existence slightly above Tier 4 cla.s.ses, when facing an attack with the might of a Tier 5 skill, it had no choice but to protect its life first.
The Orc King Tresik immediately unsheathed his blood-red greatsword. Releasing an angry roar, a frightening aura suddenly surged forth from his body. It seemed as if the Orc King had activated a berserk skill that boosted his strength to an astonis.h.i.+ng degree. He swung his greatsword, sending a streak of blood-red light slas.h.i.+ng at the descending holy sword.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
Suddenly, the land around the Towers of Death shook. It was as if the end of the world had arrived.
“What!?” s.h.i.+ Feng was stunned.
The Orc King Tresik had actually defended against the Sky Knight’s Firmament Flash.
At this moment, however, the Sky Knight already stood before the golden treasure, his hand stretching out to s.n.a.t.c.h the item.
Just as the Sky Knight was about to grasp the golden treasure, s.h.i.+ Feng suddenly noticed a mocking grin on the Orc King’s face.
The instant the Sky Knight touched the golden treasure, he suddenly released a tragic scream. Suddenly, his body transformed into countless particles of light…
