In general, adventurers who chose to fight with a superior caster would never choose to fight inside the magic tower and would only choose encounters. This was because in the case of being caught off guard, the weak physique and slow reaction of the mages would become a huge weakness. Every once in a while, there would be a senior mage killed, and most of them were even killed by enemies whose strength was far inferior.
However, when the caster was a dragon, weak strength was compensated by the powerful body of the dragon. The problem of insufficient magical power was also solved by the blood flowing from the dragon. It was simply perfect.
It was almost impossible to kill such an opponent.
It was not uncommon for warrior-type giant dragons to be killed, but it was rare for magic-type giant dragons to be killed. The only reason was that they were so powerful.
Although Sui Xiong already knew that Uherskreider was a magic-type dragon, it’s magic attainments were somewhat beyond the expectation of Sui Xiong. It was actually quite high.
Fortunately, he had already made good preparation in advance.
In accordance with the scheduled plan, Sui Xiong cast a series of three powerful spells.
He waved his tentacle and cast the first spell. Gusts of cold air condensed into dozens of sharp ice thorns and flew whistling toward the dragon. Instead of just hitting the dragon, they formed a fan shape that enveloped the dragon and a large area around its body.
This spell was enough to knock down dozens of well-equipped adventurers in one breath, but for Sui Xiong and the evil dragon, it was an opening address that could only be regarded as a greeting.
They were used for defense methods such as sweep deflection, blurring, illusion, etc., and they could expel the evil dragons from places where they possibly hid.
The second spell to follow was dozens of light balls of various colors, which would cause damage to various attributes and effectively destroy the dragon’s protective spells.
The third spell was the first to arrive. It was only a bleak ray, but it suddenly spread in the air, and turned into a huge magic formation, covering almost the entire crater.
With the emergence of this magic formation, it seemed that countless chains emerged in the surrounding space and completely locked up the space.
This was the most important spell, space locking.
This was a must-do when fighting against senior casters. Otherwise, as they fought, opponents would directly use the spell of transmission to escape when they felt the situation was not good.
Sui Xiong did not intend to let the dragon escape. Since he decided to eradicate this villain, he must first cut off its escape route!
In the face of Sui Xiong’s triple attack of magic spells, the evil dragon responded in turn.
Most people would feel sleepy for a while after they were awakened, but the evil dragon Uherskreider did not! When it was awakened it started to prepare spells. Different from Sui, it needed a very powerful spell that required some time.
The rainstorm-like ice thorns fell fiercely, and their vague illusion disappeared. Their real body emerged in a farther place. Then those light balls that should have missed the target circled around and whistled to offset their defensive spells.
When all these light balls disappeared, there was only a handful of remaining defensive spells on the dragon.
But it’s spells had also completed their task.
The giant dragon’s lava red eyes dazzled and turned into two scarlet rays, and flew directly to the giant jellyfish floating in the air.
“You who are from the sea, see how powerful I am!”
Accompanied by the announcement of the will of the evil dragon, the scarlet rays came head-on towards Sui’s face.
The spells traveled ridiculously fast, allowing no time for dodging or resistance. Sui Xiong only felt that with a slight tremble of his body, he was hit by the rays.
The multicolored lights continued to emerge from him and turned into countless continuously cracking tiny lightning bolts.
He originally used magic to float in the air, but he suddenly felt his body tremble, and the magic in his entire body even stagnated. The fixed magic of floating also lost its effect, and he fell straight toward the lava below him.
This was one of the most common means used by casters in battles called “Magic of Removal.” However, the spell cast by the evil dragon was far more powerful than ordinary magic.
Sui Xiong was shocked. Just before he mobilized his magic to float in the air once again, he felt his whole body grow hot. He felt that all of his blood had become searing hot and seemed to boil in the next second.
“Is this the spell of withering? How could it be so powerful?! No, this is linked with the spell of removal— spell chain? No, they are the same spell…”
Sui Xiong immediately recognized the effect of this spell on himself, but in an instant, he denied his guess.
The spell of withering that made the water in the enemy’s body evaporate could be regarded as a very overbearing spell, and it was especially fatal to the jellyfish, whose body consisted mostly of water. This showed that the red dragon did not only know brutality but was also full of wisdom of fighting.
However, the power of this spell was only for “mages.” For the strongmen in the legendary realm, though it was still a powerful spell, it was absolutely not dangerous. Especially, for the powerful legendary creatures, this kind of magic was unlikely to cause too serious of damage as long as one’s physical constitution was sound enough to endure it.
Moreover, Sui Xiong’s physique was far beyond that of legendary creatures. If it was the spell of withering, then it wouldn’t have a serious effect on his body even accompanied with a super magic skill “Ultimate Effect of Spell.” It would only make him feel a bit of pain for a moment.
This spell could actually make his whole body hot and give him a premonition of blood boiling. If he did not immediately suppress it, this premonition would soon become a reality.
The spell of withering was definitely not comparable to such a powerful spell. This was just like the comparison between Frost Rays and the Rays of Extreme Coldness that were totally different although they all brought about cold airs.
If not for Sui Xiong’s sufficiently powerful physique, perhaps now he would have been seriously injured if not dead.
And the dragon was also quite cunning. Its enhanced version of the spell of withering was a fusion of two spells, with the Magic of Removal at the beginning effectively disrupting the magic of defense of the target and give full play to the spell of withering to kill the target with one hit.
“It’s really vicious!” Sui Xiong secretly sighed.
However, he still underestimated the legendary dragon that bullied the whole world. Its magic was much more than that.
The next moment, Sui Xiong understood the real danger of this spell.
When he repressed the blood boiling in his body, another deep evil force burst forth and distorted the space around him and turned it into a black whirlpool, dragging him in.
What came from the black whirlpool was a deep and gloomy atmosphere of death.
In fact, the spell was divided into three parts: the first was a greatly enhanced Magic of Removal that disrupted the enemy’s possible protective spells; it was followed by an upgraded version of the Spell of Withering, with its power enough to seriously hurt or even kill legendary strong men; and even if the enemy could withstand the power of this spell, they would certainly be distracted, and when the enemy resisted the blood boiling, the follow-up spell would open up the gate of transmission that led to the Nether World which dragged the enemy in. Even if it could not kill the opponents it could contain them to ensure that afterwards it managed to banish them to the different world.
Not only that, the other end of this whirlpool was a chief lord’s field of the Nether World. Its strength was so powerful that even the “Brutal Burner” would be frightened by it. Once the enemy was sent there, it was impossible for them to return alive!
In the past years, the dragon cast this spell and killed powerful enemies more than once, among which there were many people stronger than it and even there were two divine entities.
So when it assessed that Sui Xiong was a formidable opponent, it used the spell without hesitation.
However, this time it failed, for Sui Xiong’s strength was far beyond his expectations.
The time from the spell of withering to the nether whirlpool lasted no more than one second. But in the time shorter than a second, Sui Xiong had mobilized to break the spell of withering and get rid of the impact of blood boiling, and he restored his freedom of action.
So when the nether whirlpool appeared, he just waved his tentacles, and his body suddenly moved and was transferred to the other side of the crater. He managed to escape and avoided being wrapped by the air of death from the whirlpool.
This powerful spell was also a big burden for the dragon so it took awhile for it to recover. It watched Sui escape but was unable to respond.
Of course, Sui Xiong would not miss this opportunity. He paddled his tentacles, and then five or six magic formations appeared at the same time with more than ten light balls flying out of each. The balls flew in an arc and shot toward the dragon.
These were magic bullets which were almost at the beginner level of all spells. Even a novice mage could cast it, consuming very little magic and energy.
And that meant it could be released many times.
Just a second or two later, countless light balls merged into a storm of flying bullets.
The dragon was so angry that its gum turned itchy, and if it had been in good condition, there would have been several ways to completely block this low-level spell. It would have even been possible for it to fight off these spells. But now seventy to eighty percent of its defensive magic had been cracked, and it was still recovering after casting the powerful magic, so it was simply unable to fight back.
The reason why the Sui Xiong used magic bullets was so that he could hit the slow dragon quickly. He seized this short moment to prevail over the dragon from the first encounter!
More importantly, he wanted to use rainstorm-like magic bullets to suppress the evil dragon, so that the dragon could not properly cast magic.
The dragon’s spell was too powerful because just the magic spell made him soul-stirred. Watching the slowly disappearing nether whirlpool, Sui Xiong was still scared.
If the dragon continued casting this spell, it would not only add many variables to the battle, but it would be very dangerous!
Therefore, Sui Xiong would contain it first!
