986 Soldiers Against Soldiers and General Against General

 The four devil emissaries swelled up, turning as long as snakes as their legs disappeared. Not only that, but three pairs of arm wielding swords also grew and widened from their bodies. The other devils were instantly thrilled. They charged ahead fearlessly, using their lives, blood, and corpses to pave way for victory. In an instant, everyone felt immense pressure.

"Six-armed snake devil... How interesting."

Rhode scoffed.

It's time to release them.

"---!"

Several green beams shot across the darkness instantly, turning everything into scorching flames. There was also the sound of operating mechanisms. Gabe looked around him anxiously, only to discover that the mysterious murals were falling off. One by one, enormous, octopuses-like metal creatures escaped from the walls. They had a pair of large golden eyes that emanated bright radiance like searchlights that illuminated the darkness. The metal, razor-sharp tentacles supported their massive bodies while a thin magic barrier enfolded them like in the shape of an egg.

They were the final BOSS of the tenth floor-Metal Guards Nazpark.

According to the game, players needed to defeat these metal guards in order to obtain teleportation rights to the ritual. But as the Void Dragon, Rhode didn't need to go through the hassle. With the help of Karin, they quickly attained the controlling rights of the metal guards and modified their settings. And now, these idiotic devils who triggered the teleportation ritual was finally about to face their BOSS fight.

Swish! Swish! Swish!

The metal guards widened their mouths, blasting energy spheres to the ground to absorb gravels at the surroundings. In the blink of an eye, two-meter-tall stone giants emerged from the energy spheres one after another.

In an instant, the situation took a turn. The arrogant devils were repelled as their flames and spells were useless against the stone giants. The tall stone giants ignored the evil aura and hurled punches, crushing the devils into bits.

"Oh-oh-oh, this is what I want to see!"

Mini Bubble Gum shrieked in excitement while the corners of Rhode's lips lifted. Of course, he understood why this little rascal was so excited. In the Deepest Labyrinth, BOSSes on teleportation floors were much stronger than BOSSes on other floors, like the stone giants. They were level 65, immune to spells below the Middle Circle, and had a 50 percent damage reduction from spells above the Middle Circle. Moreover, they had regeneration attributes and high resistance against physical damage. In other words, spells were completely useless against them and only close-combat fights could defeat them. Not only that, but after defeating one stone giant, a mage was also required to freeze the stone giant's core. If not, the stone giant would revive shortly after. But if players chose to destroy the core, the strength of the other stone giants would multiply accordingly. Of course, players could choose to continue fighting the stone giants with brute force, but the remaining stone giants would be extremely tough to defeat.

Therefore, the most effective way was to defeat one stone giant, freeze its core, and move on to defeat the other stone giants. Once all their cores were frozen, players could then destroy them altogether. Of course, a powerful group like Rhode's could also grasp the timing perfectly to defeat the stone giants simultaneously. Then, they could freeze the cores and destroy them all at once. Sure, it was still possible to defeat the stone giants without deploying this strategy, but it would take up a lot more time and the devils obviously weren't high enough in level to defeat the stone giants.

As 'seniors', Rhode, Canary, and Mini Bubble Gum had the subtle pleasure of watching these 'juniors' seek their deaths unknowingly.

With the appearance of the true BOSS, the devils shifted their aggression away from Rhode's group because Rhode's group only acted in self-defense. On the contrary, the stone giants were set to destroy everyone apart from Rhode's group. At this moment, they launched their attacks at the middle of the teleportation ritual. In order for the channel connecting to the Bottomless Abyss to not be cut off, the devils focused their energy in stopping them. Even though their levels weren't high enough, the devils launched the 'human' wave attack and managed to defeat the three leading stone giants. In a series of loud booms, the exploding flames burst skyward, blasting the devils away with a powerful airstream. At the same time, the remaining stone giants snarled fiercely, their bodies growing in size and strength yet again.

"Heh, heh..."

"Huhuhu..."

"Hehehe..."

The three of them exchanged mischievous glances. No words were necessary.

As expected, the strength of the remaining stone giants immediately rose. The devils could no longer leave a single scratch on them, not to mention stop them from marching forward. The devils bravely darted ahead, brandishing their razor-sharp claws, only to be struck away. The four six-armed snake devils seemed to also realize that the enemies here were much harder to deal with. They shifted their attention over and charged at the stone giants.

Even though the stone giants were strong, slow movement speed was their weakness where they couldn't hit the nimble six-armed snake devils at all. On the other hand, even though the six-armed snake devils brandished their blades and struck the massive stone giants, they failed to deal too much damage.

It's almost time. Alright then, I shall apply more pressure on them.

Rhode extended his right hand. Several cards appeared above his palm, revolving beautifully. He grabbed them in a single swipe and clenched his fist to shatter them into bits.

Boom---!

Spear Defenders clad in thick armor marched out of the darkness with spears and shields on hand. They roared, equipping the spears above the shields and taking an offensive stance. Meanwhile, Ultimate Judges clad in holy robes lifted their staffs to release a dazzling magical radiance. At the same time, Rhode activated [Taboo Halo]. As the halo flickered, the Spear Defenders' steel armor glowed. Not only that, but their spears also changed in shape. The dazzling sacred beams from the Ultimate Judges turned into artillery fire, bombarding the devils.

"Attack!"

The Spear Defenders marched ahead in unison. Rhode swung his right arm to the side and a card appeared in his hand. Then, a bright light shone on the Spear Defenders. In an instant, hundreds of thousands of razor-sharp steel spears appeared in midair, pointing forward and threatening anything that tried to stop them.

"Oh my God. This is..."

The mages widened their eyes in bewilderment. They had never seen such summoned creatures in groups. Besides, wasn't this young man a swordsman? How was it possible that he possessed such amazing summoning skills? Also, why were the summoned creatures so powerful...?

"Damn it, you lowly maggots!"

Gabe flustered. Although he had cast a protective magic barrier over himself, the strong resistance enraged him. He widened his eyes and gnashed his teeth, glaring fiercely at Rhode's group, which was enjoying the show.

"You will regret this!"

Gabe had decided. He started chanting curses under his breath as the ice-cold temperature in the hall suddenly rose. Then, a fire storm rained from the void above him, hitting heavily on the teleportation ritual. Then, scarlet flames erupted with lava and hot molten iron. A tall, enormous creature covered in flames appeared from within. Its eyes glinted in a white radiance filled with the aura of death.

"It's the Balor Devil! This shameless bast*rd!"

Celestina growled. She flapped her wings and flew toward the Balor Devil, brandishing her chain sword. The Balor Devil snarled. In the blink of an eye, a blazing sword appeared in its hand, swinging to stop Celestina's attack.

"Damn it!"

At this moment, a bloody battle between devil and demon began.
