A few days later, Zhao Fu received news that the Devil Horn Empire was gathering their army and was planning to attack the Grassi Continent that Great Qin occupied. If they could conquer that Continent, the Devil Horn Empire would also have three worlds.
They had been eyeing that Continent for a while now, and they had not even completely digested the Lantong World yet.
Now, Great Qin had two options. The first was to defend and not allow the Devil Horn Empire to obtain the Grassi Continent no matter what so that they could not obtain the Grassi World.
The second choice was to withdraw from the Continent, cede it to the Devil Horn Empire, and allow it to continue to develop. When it grew to a certain size, Great Qin would ally with the other worlds to attack it together.
In the end, Zhao Fu chose the first option because the second option was too dangerous and things could spiral out of control easily. The Devil Horn Empire had many supporters, and if they acted in key moments, they could change the situation. Moreover, Zhao Fu did not trust the other worlds.
The next day, the Devil Horn Empire mobilized ten billion soldiers, giving off a massive aura like an apocalyptic flood and sweeping towards the Grassi Continent.
Great Qin also mobilized ten billion soldiers to defend, which gave off an aura similar to a grand and impenetrable mountain.
Both sides were used to dealing with each other, and they did not waste any words before they started fighting.
"Roar! Roar! Roar..." Great Qin's countless beasts and the Devil Horn Empire's devil beasts intensely fought in the sky and on the ground. The auras they gave off were incredibly majestic and shook the surroundings, causing the heavens and earth to become austere, and the atmosphere became incredibly chaotic.
Massive flying beasts battled in the air, using their fangs and claws to tear and rip at each other, causing countless feathers and pieces of fur to descend.
The beasts on the ground ferociously charged at each other, resulting in heavy and muffled explosions. They used their fangs and claws to savagely attack each other, causing blood to fly everywhere. Pained and furious cries continuously sounded out, creating a bitter and grim scene.
The Devil Horn Empire soldiers gave off massive auras as they roared and swept forwards like an ocean. Their power seemed to be able to destroy everywhere, causing the heavens and earth to dim. Great Qin continuously shot out arrows, which descended like rain and continuously killed Devil Horn soldiers.
However, because Great Qin had gone through a few large battles, they were in short supply of Talisman Arrows and Talisman Bolts. Using their Corps Formations, the Devil Horn army was able to defend against most of Great Qin's attacks, and they quickly reached the defensive walls and started to attack.
Great Qin continuously shot down arrows, while the Devil Horn Empire responded with arrows. The Devil Horn soldiers used all sorts of methods to scale the walls, while Great Qin continuously threw down heavy objects to stop them.
The sounds of battle thundered out, shaking the surroundings, and soldiers on both sides quickly died. A dense stench of blood spread out, seeming to be able to dye the sky blood-red.
The Devil Horn Empire had come prepared. Apart from the massive and ferocious devil beasts, they had also summoned out massive blue eyes.
The blue eyes were about 100 meters wide and floated in the air, giving off sapphire-like lights. Their gazes were cold and did not contain any emotion, causing people's hairs to stand on end, and they also gave off an intense might.
The blue eyes were summoned from a Lantong forbidden technique called the Bluestar Forbidden Pupil. Each Bluestar Forbidden Pupil required 10,000 Lantong people's eyes to summon.
Moreover, they had to be the eyes of living people, and dead people's eyes were not usable. Even though there were only a few thousand massive eyes on the battlefield, Yao Ming had used 100 million Lantong people's eyes to summon them.
The people who cast the forbidden technique could not help but think about the Lantong people who had been bound on pillars. They had used their fingers to dig out their eyes, causing blood to spurt everywhere. The victims howled and struggled, but the soldiers had held their heads down and slowly dug out their eyes.
The people who had their eyes dug out were essentially crippled. Without eyes, they could not do anything, and keeping them alive was a waste of food. As such, Yao Ming ordered those people to be thrown into where the devil beasts were nurtured to become food for the devil beasts.
Just like that, 100 million Lantong people had not only lost their eyes but also become food for devil beasts as well.
If it wasn't for the fact that Yao Ming was worried about a Lantong uprising, Yao Ming would have summoned 10,000 Bluestar Forbidden Pupils and sacrificed even more people. However, he understood that he could not do this, as the Lantong people would definitely start an uprising.
After digging out the eyes of 100 million Lantong people, the Lantong people had already been filled with fury. They had surrendered to the Devil Horn Empire and had never thought that the Devil Horn Empire would do such a thing to them.
They had sacrificed 100 million Lantong people for this battle, and if there were even more intense battles in the future, it was likely that more Lantong people would be sacrificed. In order to avoid the Lantong people fighting back, Yao Ming had to show restraint.
However, the Bluestar Forbidden Pupils summoned from sacrificing 100 million Lantong people were terrifyingly powerful.
Boom! Boom! Boom...
As the Commander of the army gave the order, the Bluestar Forbidden Pupils looked towards Great Qin's direction and shot out terrifying blue rays of light that brought with them incredibly destructive power. The air exploded as the blue rays of light flashed by.
Bang! Bang! Bang...
Massive explosions sounded out as rocks were blasted everywhere and smoke rose up. Thousands of large holes were blasted open in Great Qin's defensive wall and some places collapsed. The soldiers who were hit by the blue rays of light did not even have time to cry out before they were reduced to ashes.
The blue rays of light caused massive losses to Great Qin and broke through Great Qin's defenses. The defensive walls had powerful restrictions reinforcing them, but they had still been broken through by the blue rays of light; it could be seen how powerful those attacks were.
"Kill!" Seeing that Great Qin's defenses were broken, the Devil Horn army's morale was greatly bolstered and the soldiers roared as they flooded towards the holes.
Zhao Fu's expression became grim as he sent Stage 2 soldiers to defend the holes, and he also ordered for 1,000 or so Dragon-Slaying Ballistae to be aimed at the Bluestar Forbidden Pupils.
Bang! Bang! Bang...
Rays of light containing terrifying power seemed to cause the air to explode leaving behind traces in the air. All of them were Talisman Bolts, and combined with the Dragon-Slaying Ballistae, they were naturally incredibly terrifying.
