The three cousins felt dizzy. They were in disbelief over the things happening in the past few days. They had reached this step so easily and they were at least a few dozen times stronger than they were a few days ago.
They progressed as much in a few days as they would in twenty years...
It wasn't just the three Merlins. The fifty mages were also stunned while holding their staves. These past few days felt like a dream. They had advanced to the Archmage realm and felt like they were walking on clouds. They couldn't believe that advancing to the Archmage realm had been so easy.
Xiuban kept rubbing his palms together as he watched Lin Yun distributing magic staves from the side. Seeing that everyone received a staff, he went over with a calm expression and a flattering look.
"Sir Merlin, err, you see... Carnage is really too light now, could you give me a heavier weapon? I am your most faithful servant as well as your most important guard. If someone wanted to harm you but I didn't possess a suitable weapon, how could I protect you?"
Lin Yun raised an eyebrow as he glanced at Xiuban, while Enderfa sneered.
"You fool, who was weeping and wailing not to increase his strength two days ago?"
Xiuban shamelessly laughed and acted as if he hadn't heard that. He kept his flattering smile as he held Carnage with one hand and casually swung it twice as if it weighed nothing.
Those casual movements blew the air away and created two air blasts with terrifying power.
Xiuban casually put Carnage down, and a creaking sound echoed as cracks started spreading on the ground. Everyone could see how frighteningly heavy Carnage was.
This kind of monstrous power made everyone's eyelids twitch when they saw it, but Xiuban still looked dissatisfied.
Lin Yun chuckled, and with a wave of his hand, a huge sledgehammer over two meters tall appeared. The handle of the sledgehammer was made out of a tooth of the Ancient Poison Dragon, which was 2.5 meters long.
As for the head of the hammer, it looked like a huge rock with a diameter of 1.5 meters.
This was made using a large amount of material as well as one of the Ancient Poison Dragon's jaw bones, which weighed a bit under 20,000kg by itself. With the layering array, the hammerhead reached close to 40,000 kg.
This frightening weight, as well as the incredibly sturdy jaw bone, made the destructive power reach a frightening degree. One swing would tear a body apart and crush all the bones.
Xiuban's eyes shone as he rushed over. He put both hands onto the shaft and let out a roar as he lifted the new Carnage and rested it on his shoulder.
In an instant, the earth under Xiuban's feet became unable to support this frightening weight, and cracks started appearing as Xiuban's legs sank into the ground.
Every single step would leave a visible, three-finger-deep footprint on the ground.
Seeing that everyone had received their weapons, Lin Yun waved his hands and led them all out of the camp.
All the forces had finished converging at the Storm Fort and the Azurewave Sword Saint was personally leading the army. With a wave of his hand, the army left the Storm Fort and set out for the hinterlands controlled by the Raging Flame Beastmen.
At the same time, on the other side of the Raging Flame Plane, mana fluctuations suddenly surged on a flat plain. The terrifying mana fluctuations turned into a gale that wreaked havoc for several kilometers.
A large array spreading over three hundred meters suddenly lit up, and abstruse patterns started shining.
Within that soaring light, fully armed shadows walked out one after another as a majestic army appeared from this large-scale array.
Besides the Swordsmen wearing heavy armor, there were still a large number of mages coming out one by one and emitting their mana fluctuations.
These were the troops of the Odin Kingdom. The overall aura was somewhat stronger than the Andlusa Kingdom.
On the other side, the Andlusa Kingdom's troops weren't concealing that they were going towards the Raging Flame Beastmen's hinterland.
At that time, they met a few Raging Flame Beastmen, but they weren't very powerful. The ruthless mages tore them apart the moment they appeared in order to add to their contribution scores.
None of the Raging Flame Beastmen could resist the allied army, and they quickly reached the territory controlled by one of the Raging Flame Beastmen's forts.
That Sentry Fort was the first front line of the Beastmen against mankind and had a very important role. It was like a lookout post always watching mankind's movements. It was as important to the Raging Flame Beastmen as the Storm Fort was to the Andlusa Kingdom.
Losing it would mean that the Raging Flame Beastmen would lose over a hundred kilometers of territory.
When they reached the Sentry Fort, the Andlusa Kingdom's forces rushed forwards like hungry wolves.
Countless spells soared through the air towards the Sentry Fort. In barely thirty seconds, the gate of the Sentry Fort was blasted into pieces.
All the Raging Flame Beastmen were torn apart with no chance to resist.
After all, a large part of the Andlusa Kingdom's forces were gathered there. The seven major forces had sent all the manpower they could spare, and many of the smaller forces had mobilized all their manpower for this large bet.
As long as they could beat the Odin Kingdom, they would make up for at least twice their losses.
Thus, in the face of this kind of power, the Raging Flame Beastmen's important Sentry Fort barely lasted a dozen minutes before being breached, and it took half an hour for the Raging Flame Beastmen to completely fall into disarray.
Seeing this situation, Lin Yun didn't make any moves himself. Instead, he dispatched his fifty subordinates to participate in the assault of the Sentry Fort.
After an hour, the Sentry Fort was completely occupied by the Andlusa Kingdom's allied army.
After occupying the Sentry Fort, the leaders of the forces took out their crystal balls and started checking their scores.
"My people killed over fifty Raging Flame Beastmen, two of which were captains, and I obtained 360 points. Added to the ones we killed on the way, I have a total of 400 points. Sure enough, those ordinary Raging Flame Beastmen aren't that good for increasing points..."
"Yeah, those ordinary Raging Flame Beastman Warriors only give one or two points when killed. It might have increased that much only because we breached the Sentry Fort. This has great significance for the outcome of the war and probably gave us a few hundred points."
"It looks like killing the Raging Flame Beastman Warriors doesn't have much use. Breaching the fort is the greatest harvest..."
"Wrong, I just did some calculations. Ordinary warriors and mages didn't give many points, but I killed a 9th Rank High Warlock on my own, and it looked like it was one of the leaders. My contribution points shot by more than 500. The points gained from killing the Raging Flame Beastmen's powerhouses are very high."
"Right, I discovered a Great Warlock and found that it was only worth 3 points, but a High Warlock gave over 30 points, while a 9th Rank High Warlock is worth at least 300 points. If the target is important to the fort, it could give up to double the points..."
The leaders of all the forces had each received a crystal ball, which would record the points of their force. Any contributions made by their subordinates would be recorded as points.
After breaking through the Sentry Fort, a group of people became impatient and immediately started checking their points.
Those with many points were naturally in a cheerful mood, while those with fewer points were trying to find out how to increase their points and were rubbing their palms together, waiting for the next battle.
Lin Yun took out his crystal ball and glanced at it. His points weren't high or low: He had 700. Everyone had contributed in breaching through the Sentry Fort so the points for that had been parcelled out to everyone. He had so many points only because his subordinates had killed many Raging Flame Beastmen.
While everyone was happy about having made some progress, someone suddenly let out an alarmed cry. "Heavens, what's going on? Why are the points of the Odin Kingdom so much higher than ours?"
That shout splashed cold water on everyone. At that time, they discovered that the crystal ball could be used not only to look at their own points, but also to compare the sum of their points with the Odin Kingdom's.
The sum of their points naturally represented the score of the Andlusa Kingdom, but when looking, they discovered that the Odin Kingdom's points were actually 30% higher than the Andlusa Kingdom's!
They had just started the attack!
Yet the Odin Kingdom's points were already 30% higher! What did that mean? It meant that the gap between them could continue to expand! The gap in strength was too great, they simply had no hope of being victorious!
"The Odin Kingdom is too powerful, it looks like their assault was devastating and didn't give the Raging Flame Beastmen any time to resist."
"Yeah, although I knew that the Odin Kingdom was very powerful, I didn't expect that they would be so powerful... We have no hope of winning."
"We should hurry and try to get as many resources as we can before leaving. If this continues, the losses will be too great..."
Soon, the morale of the allied army that had been so high started plummeting, and they were even considering leaving. Even Lin Yun couldn't help frowning.
At this time, Harren, who was connected to someone with a crystal ball, suddenly put his crystal ball away.
"I just obtained some news. The Odin Kingdom's allied armies didn't converge. Instead, they launched separate attacks, with each of their forces acting alone and spreading out to accelerate the early stage of the attack. They swept through everything on the way and effortlessly destroyed many of the Raging Flame Beastmen's forces."
Harren's expression wasn't very good, because they hadn't expected the Odin Kingdom's actions.
They took advantage of the fact that the resistance wasn't very strong to tear their way through very quickly...
