“It’s a suppressive Domain!” Water Mage Pinole blurted out when he sensed the iciness in their surroundings.
A Domain of this kind was rather powerful, as everyone under its effects was slower at casting spells, and the damage of their spells was weakened significantly, too. Normally, the Domain of a Soul-grade Seed could at most suppress twenty percent of their damage, but Mu Ningxue’s Nirvana Ice Domain seemed to have suppressed thirty to forty percent!
In terms of Domain, it was likely that no one was stronger than Mu Ningxue’s innate talent. Even strong Mages like Jack and Pinole could feel the strong suppression from her Ice Domain!
“I’ll handle her!” Hannah harrumphed coldly. She summoned a lightning orb in her hand and hurled it at Mu Ningxue!
The lightning orb immediately split into sharp lightning arcs when it reached Mu Ningxue’s vicinity. The lightning bolts extended rapidly to a length of twenty meters, like a deadly meteor hammer covered in lightning!
Mu Ningxue was shrouded by a small tornado, serving as a shield protecting her. Even though its defense was incomparable to the defense of Wind Wings: Shelter, it was more than enough to defend her from the lightning attack.
Hannah was agitated when she saw Mu Ningxue nullifying her attack with ease.
She could easily tell that the potency of her magic had dropped significantly. Normally, her Lightning Meteor Hammer would be much more effective! The woman clearly had an outstanding Domain that she was extremely jealous of!
“Humph, do you think you’ll be fine as long as you pretend to be harmless? We’re in the middle of a tournament, where participants are meant to compete with one another. Let me see what a woman who only knows how to earn someone’s pity like you has!” Belle had been waiting for this chance for a long time. The news, articles, and women’s magazines kept mentioning the Great Duchess of England, and Belle found it extremely annoying!
She had always come from an ancient noble family, yet why was this woman always in the limelight, while she was rotting away in a dark corner!
Belle seemed to be nursing a strong grievance. The power of the Curse Element burst out from her body, the crimson-red glow forming an evil spider web looming over Great Duchess Ayleen. A cursed spider on it was crawling toward Ayleen slowly, its greedy eyes locked onto her spirit.
“Belle, I have no idea why you hate me so much, but I’m really disappointed by how you’re treating me. We had such a pleasant time when we went to Iceland together…” Ayleen glanced at the Curse Spell calmly.
“Humph, the Ice Domain is useless against Dark Magic, don’t you underestimate me!” Belle’s eyes emitted a wicked light as the Sinister Spider Trap descended rapidly.
Meanwhile, a sinister-looking demon with sharp fangs appeared out of nowhere, grabbing at the petite Ayleen with its giant arms, trying to drag Ayleen’s spirit out of her body!
Ayleen was startled. Her opponent was using the Sinister Spider Trap on the surface, but she had actually cast the Demon Torture secretly. The woman was quite terrifying with how scheming she was. Most importantly, Ayleen did not feel like her opponent was showing any mercy to her. The Curse Magic was known for inflicting serious, unrecoverable damage on the target’s soul. Ayleen could feel that the hate-demon filled was not only trying to teach her a lesson, but planning to tear her spirit into pieces!
Ayleen’s face turned cold. She had always been friendly to people, and even when she was facing someone she did not like, she would still try her best to be sensible. She believed she had never done anything wrong to Belle, yet the woman was treating her so aggressively; it was truly infuriating.
Ayleen would not show any mercy to someone that was so eager to make her disappear!
Ayleen cast a Psychic Spell, unleashing a strong Psychic Impact at Belle before the demon could grab her.
The Advanced Curse Spell was fairly powerful, but Ayleen was extremely familiar with Dark Magic, and knew that the Demon Torture had to maintain its continuity. The Mage that cast the Demon Torture had to continue supplying the demon with the energy of the Curse Element while it was carrying out the attack.
Since Ayleen was aware of the spell’s weakness, she decisively used a Psychic Spell to interrupt Belle’s channeling of the Demon Torture!
Even though Belle was being very cautious, she did not expect Ayleen’s Psychic Element to be so powerful. The Heart-Crushing Symphony was not just a single wave of attack, it was like a melody filled with grievances that remained in her mind until the symphony came to an end. During this time, her mind was greatly disturbed, preventing her from casting any spell.
“Allow me to lend you a hand!” a Canadian student who had long waited for a chance to fawn upon Belle said.
The Canadian student was obviously an offensive Mage. His magic began to surge, and even though the power of his spells had been weakened by Mu Ningxue’s Nirvana Ice Domain, it still posed a great threat to Ayleen. Ayleen’s primary Element was Water, and her defense was rather average, too. She could only defend herself passively…
“I’ll handle them, don’t worry about me, and try not to go too far away so my Spirit Wall can protect you still,” Ayleen said when she saw Mu Ningxue start to lend her a hand.
Mu Ningxue withdrew her attention when she realized that Ayleen was still able to handle the situation calmly. After all, Mu Ningxue was in quite a pinch herself too, since four Mages were targeting her simultaneously!
Mu Ningxue’s splendid performance during the opening match had placed her right in the limelight. As a result, many participants had a strong urge to defeat her. The four of them, led by Pinole and Hannah, kept attacking, forcing her to back up continuously. The supply of her Ice Magic was unable to keep up with the rate of output.
In terms of strength, both Pinole and Hannah were incredibly strong, although they were only considered above average among the participants. The other two students were fairly average. Normally, Mu Ningxue could easily defeat them in no time, but when the four teamed up against her, it went without saying that she would be the one struggling to hold her ground.
Luckily, her Nirvana Ice Domain was fairly powerful, and her cultivation was clearly stronger than anyone on the enemy team. It was the main reason why Mu Ningxue was still in the fight, but it was only a matter of time until she was defeated.
However, she was not in the worst spot among the trio, as Mo Fan was taking on six people at once…
What shocked Mu Ningxue the most was, Mo Fan was actually taking the initiative to attack, even when he was up against six people. Mu Ningxue could not help but exclaim at how much of a freak Mo Fan was!
The Flying Creek Snow Wolf had lifted a huge portion of the pressure off Mo Fan’s shoulders. The frost-covered creature was chasing after Herbert. He had driven the Englishman all the way to the river, out of Mu Ningxue’s Nirvana Ice Domain!
Seeing that the Flying Creek Snow Wolf had chased one of his opponents away, Mo Fan let Little Flame Belle fight on her own too, and her target was none other than Meos of the Egyptian team!
Little Flame Belle was vengeful, too. She would never forget how Meos had bullied her in the past. The little creature was like an erupting volcano, leaving wild Calamity Fire all over the place. Meos never thought the little Summoned Beast would grow so much stronger in just half a year. Her skin was already covered in blistering burns from the scorching heat!
Both the Flying Creek Snow Wolf and Little Flame Belle had achieved the Commander-level. Even if each of the participants in the tournament had remarkable strength, allowing them to take on a Commander-level creature on their own, a Commander-level creature would still win the fight eventually!
“Humph, how dare you use the soul I was so fond of already, screw you!” Jack was utterly resentful, especially when he saw how strong the Flying Creek Snow Wolf was. He totally regretted that he did not buy the soul immediately when he first saw it. That way, he might have had another Commander-level creature fighting by his side now!
“You’re not the only person with Summoned Beasts!” Jack opened up the door of the Contract Summoning with a hollow laugh.
An enormous demon creature with a beastly body and the tail of a scorpion came out from the gap. Everyone held their breaths when they sensed the formidable aura of death and savagery lunging at them.
The creature stomped the ground fiercely. The ground began to crack in Mo Fan’s direction. Mo Fan was just about to dodge it when he saw the Scorpion-Tailed Demon leaping into the air while emitting a blinding glow. Its body suddenly enlarged a few times as it came crashing down like a mountain!
The beast was absolutely huge, to the extent that Mo Fan was struggling to dodge the attack. He was forced to use the Dark Noble Mantle to barely escape from the shadow of the creature that was doing a sumo slam on him.
The enemy had set up a barrier, meaning that Mo Fan could no longer escape with the Dark Noble Mantle. In addition to that, the Psychic Mage on the enemy team had also tagged him with a mark.
Even without the Psychic Element, the Light Element was the Shadow Element’s greatest weakness. The Dark Noble Mantle would easily be exposed with a simple casting of the Brilliant Light.
There was simply no way to escape, so Mo Fan had no choice but to fight!
Mo Fan had just dodged the sumo slam when he heard some piercing cries under the loosened ground. Mo Fan suddenly felt like his ankle being grabbed onto by a pair of pincers.
Mo Fan lowered his gaze and saw hands sticking out from the ground, grabbing onto his legs.
Shreev of the Egyptian team was sneering with the presence of the Undead Element rising from his body, as he was controlling the undead under the ground Mo Fan was standing on.
“Do you really think a few zombies are enough to trap me?” A mysterious, silver glow appeared with a single thought from Mo Fan, forming a strong, compressing force directed at the ground under his feet!
A rhomboid with Mo Fan at the center appeared and crushed the ground below his feet. The ground was suddenly compressed into a state sturdier than rocks, blood flowing out between the gaps. It turned out that the little undead under the ground had been crushed into minced meat!
“Humph, I can summon as many of those undead as I want!” Shreev had not given up yet. He continued to summon undead to fight for him!
“He will be having a piece of this first!” Angelo of the Italian team was desperately looking for a way to vent his anger. He activated a piece of magic equipment to strengthen the Deadly Wind Formation he was about to complete!
