A buck’s head was being grasped by Hikari, its antler akin to branches of a large tree. It was surrounded by white energy particles that looked like fireflies.
The light dots were blocking all the attacks from the wizards for Hikari, with some of the weaker spells aimed at her repelled.
Angele stood on the deck and watched the fight. Most of the wizards he saw were around at the Gas stage and were casting modified spells, though no one used any secret techniques.
The nine wizards were also getting nervous because their spells were not effective.
Angele recalled the moment Reyline removed his headband. The fragrance of the flower came from some toxic gas, but it did nothing to him, and Reyline just admitted his loss. It was not a deathmatch, so Angele assumed that Reyline still had some powerful spells left. Even if the fight continued, Angele still had one more modified spell he wanted to test in a real fight. The wind buff was just one of the two spells he modified recently.
And with the petrification and a fully activated signet, he could slay Reyline easily with his close combat skills.
‘Sadly, I can only use the petrification ability twice a day.’ Angele shook his head.
The petrification ability would only work when the target was within the effective range of three meters, and if the target had high Stamina, the skill would only be able to stop him from moving for about one second. Furthermore, a certain amount of mana would be consumed when the skill was used.
Angele had the great harpy’s ancient bloodline in his body so his resistance to poison and illusions was high. That was probably the reason why the toxic gas did not work.
He watched the wizards relentlessly attack Hikari. Angele wondered why the situation was so intense.
Several minutes later, one of the wizards suddenly fell to the ground. His face turned purple and his body was trembling.
“Brother! F*cking hell! Hikari, give me the antidote!” A muscular man in a long red robe shouted. He kept releasing red fire birds from his sleeves. There were around ten fire birds flying around above the deck.
Another wizard fell to the floor and the symptom was same as the last one.
The wizards started to faint one by one. Their face all turned purple and some of them were grunting while staring at Hikari. The spells they were channeling all disappeared.d
“That’s it, wizards. Your mana will be halved as long as you’re in my poison mist. Admit it, you don’t stand a chance against me.”
The wizards on the deck had already lost the ability to fight back.
Angele pursed his lips.
Hikari was not fighting like a light wizard but was fighting like a dark wizard instead.
Angele raised his hand and aimed at the main mast of the first airship, releasing a silver metal chain.
He held the chain tight and jumped onto the railings of the airship.
“Just you and me then.” He jumped off the railings and walked to Hikari.
Hikari turned around and stopped laughing. Her face turned serious as she knew that Angele already had two crystal runes in possession.
Blue light dots flashed in front of Angele’s eyes.
“The tooth of the Red Snow Snake and the Rhino Grass, huh? Where did you get this Purple Sabretooth poison mist from?” Angele coughed.
Hikari narrowed her eyes. “A knowledgeable potion master that can fight? Impressive.”
“Don’t worry, I read it from a wizard book, but I don’t think a poison mist like that will work on me.” Angele shook his head.
A bitter smile appeared on Hikari’s face. “I’m a potion master. I’ll just admit defeat if none of my potions work on you.”
“Huh?” Angele was surprised. He looked at the head of the buck. It was translucent and there was a tiny black bottle placed inside it. That bottle was the source of the poison mist.
Angele looked at Hikari and used the biochip to identify the potions she was carrying. He could do that easily if her potion bottles were not completely sealed.
“Well, you’re carrying a Natoros potion, a Petrification potion, a Touch of Ice, two bottles of water elements, and one bottle of ice elements, am I right?”
An average potion master would never be able to do something like that.
Hikari’s expression broke its façade. She stared at Angele in shock. The white light dots around her vanished into the air.
With the help of Zero, Angele’s knowledge on potions had already reached an entirely different level.
Moreover, he knew how to deal with all the potions she had.
Angele took out a tiny crystal test tube from one of his pouches. Inside it contained sticky purple liquid.
“For the elemental summoning potions, I have the energy disruption potion to interrupt the summoning process for a certain duration and I have plenty of time to attack during this period. I don’t need to do anything to counter the Natoros as it’s just too weak. For the Petrification potion, I can just use…Well, I’m not going to go too far on this one as the wizards on the floor are still conscious.” Only the strongest potion masters knew the secret about these potions. If the other wizards had learned about the secret, Hikari would not have been able to fight back had things gone south for her.
“Ah, and the Touch of Ice. Sadly, I’m familiar with all the potions you have right now.” Angele chuckled as he shook his head. “Just give me the crystal rune. It will only take me one minute to dispatch. I have one honest advice for you. Don’t rely too much on potions. You can trick the light wizards with them, sure, but you won’t stand a chance if you’re fighting against a dark wizard.”
Angele was a potion master, but he barely used any potion in fights. Using a potion was easy but when the opponent recognized the potion he was using, it would just be a waste.
The poison mist was effective on wizards with low Stamina but for someone like Reyline or Angele, they would not even notice the toxic mist in the air. Furthermore, if the opponent had higher mentality level, activating the elemental summoning potions would be nearly impossible, as the stronger mentality waves would interrupt the summoning process.
Angele only carried several potions that were concocted for a fight, but it was only for emergency situations.
Hikari stood there and slowly nodded. “Fine, I give up.”
She raised her right hand and threw a crystal rune to the air.
Angele caught the rune and took out the two other crustal runes he acquired earlier.
The three crystal runes formed a palm-sized crystal shackle. It was clean and elegant.
Angele closed his eyes and several images from the crystal shackle were transmitted into his brain.
‘Accepting data from an unknown source…’ Zero reported right away.
Angele stood on the deck and opened his eyes after several minutes.
“Well, use your antidote first.” He looked at Hikari.
Hikari nodded and took out a tiny bottle, then started applying the antidote on the nine wizards right away.
Angele returned to his own airship and he saw that Perry had already woken up. The wizards that were severely injured would be protected by the magic matrices on the airships, but they would not be able to move under the protective matrices. Angele deactivated the function right away as the competition was over.
The wizards immediately healed themselves using the prepared healing gels and spells. Angele asked the original captains of the airships to keep monitoring the direction and the speed.
The competition decided who would be the one to commandeer the airships. Most of the wizards hadn’t even used their strongest damage spells.
The owner of the amulet had the power to expel wizards from the airships. Actually, they could still stay on the airships, but the magic matrices would not protect them even if they were severely wounded.
Angele would not expel any wizard for no reason. He needed everyone’s strength to deal with the dangerous creatures they would encounter during the trip.
In a cabin of the leading airship.
Angele, Reyline, Hikari, and Baron sat around a long rectangular wooden table. They were all staring at a crystal orb.
The crystal orb was supported by a metal base, the image inside showed an enormous flying bee.
It was a white bee with blue spiral patterns around its abdomen. The bee looked identical to a normal bee, but it had three dark stingers.
The strange bee was flying over the snow-covered trees. Its body was about one meter long and its stingers were cutting down some of the branches.
“That’s a Cloud Bee,” Hikari said in a light tone. “My ancestors are from Omandis. They have kept some information of the bee in my family library. I acquired the information through the signal obelisks, but the distance was too far and some of the critical data were missing. Still, it’s better than nothing.
“A Cloud Bee has three stingers, and it can deal a substantial amount of Ice damage. Its speed is fast, and its attacks are hard to dodge. There are three basic types of Cloud Bees: the worker bees, the male bees, and the queen bee.” Hikari continued, “The one we just saw is a worker bee. It can deal both physical and energy damage. Male bees are much stronger than the worker bees, and I don’t have any intel on the queen bee. Usually, the queen bee won’t leave the nest. There will be at least one male bee in a group of worker bees, too. We must be careful.”
“They’re bees, right? What do they eat?” Baron knitted his eyebrows.
“They’re Cloud Bees…They feed on animal flesh,” Reyline responded. He was spinning a silver badge on the table.
“You said the bee’s speed is fast but how fast can it travel exactly? And do they just appear in a large swarm when looking for prey?” Angele questioned.
“They usually appear in a pair of two first. That’s all I know. No one has ever tested their flying speed but I’m fairly sure they’re faster than our airships,” Hikari pursed her lips.
