The Chronicles of the Immortal God - Chapter 356
Chapter 356: All Shots had been Fired
Phenex, Beleth and Genie were all still at the planet, as only Fang Yu and Andromalius were brought to the Mist Room.
Fang Yu added this part on the deal, since he wanted to do a pure one-by-one fight, so it should be only her and her opponent inside the Mist Room.
Beleth knew that Fang Yu did this just to hide her secret attacks, and he was fine with it.
After all, he had no choice but to agree, or the deal will be off. Solomon’s health was more important compared to the chance of observing Fang Yu.
“Besides, even if I do not know her abilities and even if she defeats Phenex and Beleth, I am still confident that I will win in the end…” Beleth thought smugly as he caressed an object that he held on his right hand.
With this object in his possession, Beleth was sure that any tricks that Fang Yu employs will be all for naught!
“You may be strong as what you claimed you are, but you must know that there are heavens beyond heavens, and wells bigger than your well!”
Phenex’s body slightly shifted as he noticed the object that Beleth held on his right hand. Upon seeing this, Phenex said nothing as an undiscernable glint flashed across his eyes.
Nobody knew what Phenex was thinking at that time, but Genie shivered when she looked at Phenex, as she felt that something big will happen later that will involve him.
At the instant that the two of them appeared in the Mist Room, Andromalius did not hold back as he started his offensisive.
“Curse of Wrath!” “Malediction of Love!”
Andromalius immediately used these curses on Fang Yu, which she already experienced it before.
“Tsk.” Fang Yu tsked as she knew that this time, the curse that Andromalius used was at full power.
Even those practitioners who tempered their souls will be easily affected by these full-powered curses!
“You think I do not have anything planned for that?”
Fang Yu’s body glowed violet as she clad her Violet Martial Aura. Andromalius did not say anything after seeing this as he began preparing for his next attack.
“Guh!” Fang Yu grunted as she bore the full force of the Curse of Wrath and the Maledction of Love.
She felt intense Wrath Flames burning inside her body, and a pinkish red glow meandering towards her soul.
“Begone!” Fang Yu shouted as she used her Violet Martial Aura to resist the effects of the curse and the malediction.
“Fizz….” The pinkish red glow disappeared entirely, while the Wrath Flames decreased in size, turning into just one-sixteenth of its original size. If she wanted to, Fang Yu can directly extinguish those flames.
But she did not, as she focused on expelling the Malediction of Love that Andromalius placed inside her.
“Pant, pant.” Fang Yu felt just slightly weakened with the Wrath Flames still inside her. But with the move she used earlier, she was able to restrain the rage induced by the weakened Wrath Flames.
“I can manage with these weak flames inside me now. What I hate is that malediction.” Fang Yu thought as she ignored the vitality being absorbed by the Wrath Flames.
With her breakthrough, her Eternal Life and Death Disk managed to gain additional life force inside it. Fang Yu reckons that this additional life force must have come from the upgrade on her cores.
As such, Fang Yu was not afraid of her current vitality being sucked away by the weakened Wrath Flames.
What Fang Yu feared more is the submission effect of the Malediction of Love. Fang Yu and Fang Lin could be considered as perverted people, so Fang Yu feared that the effects of the Malediction of Love will be great on her.
She was lucky earlier that Old Man’s clone suppressed her emotions. But this time, she had no emotions to protect.
So she eliminated the Malediction of Love entirely with her Violet Martial Aura, and she used its remaining power to weaken the Wrath Flames.
“So that violet glow you have can strengthen your soul and weaken soul-based attacks?” Andromalius knew that the curses he used earlier were both focused on souls. Seeing that Fang Yu were able to actually slightly resist them made him sure that she has a counter-measure against soul-based attacks.
“Heh, you are lucky I used those things on you. But you should know that not all my curses are soul-based!” Andromalius cackled as his body began to glow black.
Based from his observations, Andromalius confidently assumed that since Fang Yu’s soul aspects were strong, then her physical aspects must be weak!
“Now, let me see you thrashing around in pain!”
“Curse of Envy!” Just like earlier, insects appeared came out of Andromalius, and they all swarmed towards Fang Yu.
“Malediction of Charity!” A blue halo appeared, which appeared to have restrained Fang Yu.
“Malediction of Humility!” A white beam of energy shot out from the hands of Andromalius, which immediately collided towards Fang Yu.
Fang Yu tried to dodge it, but it was as if there were natural laws preventing her from dodging it.
“Let’s see you surviving all my curses!”
The Malediction of Charity was based on the principle of charity, where a person must be generous on helping others.
This malediction will make the target be ‘helpful’ to Andromalius, literally. This malediction will double the potency of the maledictions and curses that Andromalius cast after it!
This meant that the Curse of Envy and the Malediction of Humility will have their effects doubled!
As for the Curse of Envy, it heavily relies on the envious emotions felt by Andromalius towards his opponent.
The more envious Andromalius was to the target, the more potent and damaging Envy Insects he can produce.
These Envy Insects’ goal was just simple, they will just try to devour the target of the curse. The insects will only stop if their time limit was up, or if their target was already eaten.
As for the Malediction of Humility, it was based on the principle of humility, where one has to let go of their pride, arrogance, and aggressiveness.
This malediction was considered as a ‘debuffing curse’ of Andromalius. Any opponent hit by this will have their physical attributes reduced dramatically.
The equation for this malediction was:
Power reduction = (10)x(number of unique curses and maledictions used on the opponent excluding the Malediction of Humility)
This means that Fang Yu’s abilities will be weakened by a factor of (10)X(5 curses used on her) or 50 times!
Adding the double potency effect of the Malediction of Charity, and Fang Yu will be weakened by a total of 100 times!
This is the ultimate combo that can be considered to be one of Andromalius’ evilest moves, as in a close battle, having your power reduced will be tantamount to a clear disadvantage!
As for its limit, Andromalius can only use the Malediction of Charity and Humility once an hour, so he had to be careful on how he uses it.
With Fang Yu weakened 100 times, Andromalius was sure that his Envy Insects with their doubled potency will devour Fang Yu easily!
But his expectations went down the drain quickly.
“100 times? If it were before, I might be already a goner. But right now, you just used the wrong curses on me!” Fang Yu seemed to be unperturbed with what happened to her as she stretched out her arms.
Her body glowed red, as a seemingly red aura covered her body.
At the instant that this red aura appeared, Andromalius felt the effects of his curse combo disappearing!
The current Fang Yu was back to her original strength!
“What the hell!?”
“Are you surprised?” Fang Yu smugly said as she saw the surprised expression of Andromalius. “If you can reduce your opponent’s power, that does not mean I do not have ways to get around it.”
What Fang Yu used was her Red Martial Aura, which can currently raise her abilities by a factor of 100 times.
This effect cancelled out the debuff that Andromalius place on Fang Yu.
This meant that Fang Yu was back at her original strength, no longer weakened by Andromalius.
As for the Envy Insects, Fang Yu was actually not that worried about them.
“Come out now!”
Buzzing sounds could be heard as a large cloud suddenly appeared out of Fang Yu.
The cloud was golden in color, and its size dwarfed the swarm of Envy Insects that Andromalius summoned.
“This is!” Andromalius eyes widened as he saw that this cloud was made up of thousands of golden insects!
Each of these insects had wings that let them fly, and powerful jaws that can crush anything on their path.
These insects were called the Bone-Crushing Ants!
“What, you think just because you have insects that I cannot have some too?” These ants came from Fang Yu’s Golden Rat Emperor ability.
Before she started her assault plan, Fang Yu used her free time earlier to search for some insects that she can use as a template swarm for her Golden Rat Emperor ability.
Luckily for her, she found some Bone-Crushing Ants just flying outside the mansion.
These ants’ jaws were so powerful that they can according to rumors, crush bones of a normal human. Fang Yu took an interest in them so she took some of them.
After her breakthrough to the Third Stage, Fang Yu decided to create a swarm of Bone-Crushing Ants while she was rescuing Genie.
Because of the upgrade of her Essence Cores, Fang Yu gained additional abilities as a Golden Rat Emperor.
Now, Fang Yu can make add more mutations and abilities to the swarm the she will create.
She did this with the bone crushing ants, adding more power to their jaws, making their skin extremely hard, and she also made them extremely ferocious!
Because of all these adjustments, Fang Yu was only able to create around 10 thousand of these ants.
But these ants were enough to eradicate Andromalius’ Envy Insects!
After all, the Envy Insects only number around a 3 thousand, which was way less than Fang Yu’s swarm.
“No…” In no time at all, Andromalius’ Envy Insects were besieged by the Bone-Crushing Ants.
With their power doubled, each individual Envy Insect can easily kill a Bone-Crushing Ant, but the overwhelming amount of the Bone-Crushing Ants ensured that this advantage ceased to exist.
Fang Yu watched as the two insect swarms were currently stuck in a stalemate.
She slowly walked towards Andromalius, who slowly backed away.
“From what I know, you can only use up to 2 Curses and 3 Maledictions.” Fang Yu said as she donned the Three-Headed Khalkotauroi armor, which was also upgraded after her breakthrough.
“You just used all those curses already, so that means you have now way to fight now!” Fang Yu’s body suddenly disappeared as she appeared behind Andromalius. She clenched her armor-covered hand as he sent it hurtling towards Andromalius’ head.
The space trembled as Fang Yu’s armor increased the potency of her punch.
“You forced me to do this!” Andromalius bellowed as his body began to melt. His face looked hideous as it began to distort.
“You are right, I cannot use any abilities right now. If I used one, I will immediately die. But if my death is needed just for Lord Solomon to be healed, then I will gladly die for him!”
“Not good!” Fang Yu thought as she cancelled her punch before jumping away from Andromalius.
The whole Mist Room quaked as Andromalius’ black gooey body burst like a bubble.
Fang Yu’s sight was covered with this black goo as she heard Andromalius’ fading voice.
“Malediction of Death!”
