Lightning Spells with six times the damage from the Lightning Tyrant landed on the Poison Armor Scorpion, whipping the creature fiercely, yet barely left any marks on its armor.
Mo Fan tried targeting the Poison Armor Scorpion’s head to attack Jack directly, but he realized that it was the sturdiest part of the Poison Armor Scorpion’s defense. He was struggling to deal any damage to Jack, who was hiding inside the armor.
Left with no choice, Mo Fan could only use the Lightning Tyrant to keep the others and the undead scattering across the place at bay.
The Lightning Tyrant was very effective when attacking another Mage and Shreev’s undead. The Iron Zombies and mummies that Mo Fan had a hard time killing previously had all been disintegrated into bloodspray by the Lightning Tyrant. Even the Psychic Mage was having difficulty casting her spell under the tremendous suppression of the Lightning Tyrant. They could only attack Mo Fan with other Elemental Spells.
Mo Fan’s Lightning Tyrant Domain was suppressing them, just like Mu Ningxue’s Domain. Even though she was currently somewhere else, the Lightning Tyrant Domain was also able to weaken spells that were cast within its area.
Together with the Intermediate Space Spell, Time Stasis, Mo Fan had managed to hold his ground for the time being.
“Do you really think you stand a chance against us!?” Jack snapped arrogantly.
The Poison Armor Scorpion waved its huge arms wildly. The spikes on the arms extended further and became even sharper!
The spike-covered arms swung down, leaving lots of holes in the ground. The space that Mo Fan could use to dodge the attack was very limited, not to mention that the arms were densely covered in spikes with deadly poison. With the slightest touch, a wound would immediately spread into a long cut, as if he had just been struck by a sword.
As the Poison Armor Scorpion was waving its arms, it suddenly leaned to one side as the poisonous, glowing tail that it had been hiding sprang forward.
The icy point went right for Mo Fan’s chest. Mo Fan was soaked in cold sweat, as he totally did not expect the surprise attack. Mo Fan was totally defenseless as he watched the poisonous stinger flying at him!
The Black Snake Armor was still on cooldown, and the Departing Nether Shield had broken into pieces not long ago. It was too late for him to construct a wall with the Space Element, or try dodging the attack, since the four limbs of the creature had sealed off all his escape routes!
He had no chance of dodging the attack, nor defending himself. Mo Fan had a feeling that the poisonous sting was going to puncture his chest…
Jack was slightly more righteous than the vicious Angelo. He was not aiming for Mo Fan’s heart, yet it was still going to deal a devastating blow to him!
A great chill ran down Mo Fan’s spine. He clenched his teeth and cursed himself for feeling relieved that he was currently in the middle of a tournament. After going back and forth between the cradle and the grave many times, Mo Fan had learned that there was no such thing as a fluke in the way of living of a Mage!
He could not afford to give up until the very end. Didn’t he still have Telekinesis?
He only needed a single gaze to cast the Basic Spell of the Space Element. Was the deadly poisonous sting really quicker than his eyes?
“Telekinesis!” Mo Fan’s eyes glowed silver. He did not dodge the attack, nor did he try to defend himself. He was only using his gaze to stop the deadly stinger.
If Ai Jiangtu was able to put every spell targeting him into stasis, why couldn’t he stop this deadly attack, too? He needed a strong will, and a great courage. The strength of the Space Element did not rely on the spells, or a Soul-grade Seed, but his unmatchable mental strength!
Having too many Elements granted Mo Fan lots of different options to overcome the danger he faced. However, it also prevented Mo Fan from having a chance to practice his Space Element. His Space Element was like a little sapling protected by his other stronger Elements. It was unable to grow, as it did not experience the strong wind and the rain!
Mo Fan had used all his Elements, yet he was still in a pinch. Why wouldn’t he trust in his Space Element, and believe that his will was strong enough to overcome the attack!?
The silver glow grew stronger as it clashed with the poisonous stinger…
Humans would subconsciously try to avoid danger in fear. Mo Fan was forcing himself not to dodge the attack, since it was utterly meaningless. His first priority was to stop the cells within his body from trembling in fear at the approaching danger!
He needed to stay perfectly calm, and needed perfect focus, to believe that he would stop the deadly attack right before it could reach its chest!
The silver aura had enveloped Mo Fan’s entire body, and was rapidly spreading to the poison stinger, too.
The scorpion tail was right in front of Mo Fan’s chest, yet had failed to stab into him. It encountered strong resistance from Mo Fan’s will, and even though it was merely inches away, it was unable to go any further, as if it had struck a sturdy jade!
The cold of the stinger had pierced through Mo Fan’s clothes and penetrated the muscles on his chest easily. The small chill immediately brought tremendous pain to the entirety of Mo Fan’s nervous system, even though it had only penetrated the tissues in the outer layer. He could easily imagine how unbearable the pain would be if it fully stabbed into his body!
“I wonder how long you’re going to last!” Jack screamed.
The mind of the Poison Armor Scorpion was synchronized with his. The poison sting that was hovering right above Mo Fan’s chest was slowly pushing further, and with only half an inch left, the deadly poison would soon spread inside Mo Fan’s body!
“Piss off!” Mo Fan yelled, venting his frustration. The stubborn thought immediately reinforced his will, and he grabbed firmly onto the sting.
Jack realized that his Poison Armor Scorpion was struggling to push its tail any further. He snapped furiously at the Psychic Mage, “What are you waiting for?”
The Psychic Mage had already cast Psychic Impact, yet the attack did not necessarily have a hundred percent success rate. When a person was so focused that their will had become impenetrable, the Psychic Impact was basically like a small ripple on a lake, unable to do any harm to its target.
Jack had no idea Mo Fan was able to stop the attack with his Space Element. He angrily waved his hand, deciding to attack with his other Elements.
However, a Commander-level wolf covered in frost suddenly appeared, ripping with its claws continuously as it fired a dozen icy crescents at the Poison Armor Scorpion!
Twelve long gashes were seen on the poisonous armor as the crescents penetrated further into the creature’s flesh. Poisonous blood was flowing out from the wounds, smearing the body of the Poison Armor Scorpion.
The Poison Armor Scorpion was knocked back staggering, and it almost fell to the ground.
“Well done, wolf!” Mo Fan was overjoyed, knowing that the danger had been resolved.
The Flying Creek Snow Wolf moved swiftly. Unlike other beasts that attacked with brute force, he preferred to engage his enemy with chain attacks. After the initial move, he moved to the Poison Armor Scorpion’s side and stomped the ground fiercely with all his limbs, firing splinters of ice at the Poison Armor Scorpion…
The ice splinters poured down at the Poison Armor Scorpion like satellite rays, and amazingly penetrated the Poison Armor Scorpion’s flesh too, leaving obvious wounds around the creature’s joints!
The Poison Armor Scorpion was knocked back further, yet when it gradually stabilized itself, Jack glanced at the Flying Creek Snow Wolf disdainfully and said, “You’ve wasted such a valuable soul on a low-level demon wolf. It is still inferior, even though it has reached the Commander-level!”
Despite the injuries that the Poison Armor Scorpion had suffered, its strength and aura showed no sign of weakening. It immediately switched targets to the Flying Creek Snow Wolf. Its ferocious moves and poisonous stinger forced the Flying Creek Snow Wolf to withdraw temporarily.
“A creature like that is not worthy to take the soul of the creature from the Extreme South Ice Realm!” Jack was even angrier when he saw the Flying Creek Snow Wolf, “You guys, deal with him; I’ll take care of this inferior demon wolf!”
The student that was initially fighting the Flying Creek Snow Wolf had regrouped with the team, too. They proceeded to flank Mo Fan once again, together with Shreev’s undead.
Mo Fan initially planned to counterattack Jack and the Poison Armor Scorpion with the help of the Flying Creek Snow Wolf, yet he was soon entangled by his remaining opponents. He had no choice but to use the Lightning Tyrant on them.
“I can get the soul back still after killing you. They didn’t specify that we aren’t allowed to kill our opponent’s Summoned Beast!” Jack said coldly.
It was Jack’s real goal, as he believed it was a great humiliation to let the soul of a noble creature reside in the body of a low-level demon wolf. Only his Poison Armor Scorpion was worthy of the soul, so his Summoned Beast could attain its third form!
“Die! Die!” Jack was casting spells too as he fought the Flying Creek Snow Wolf alongside his Poison Armor Scorpion. The Flying Creek Snow Wolf was struggling to hold his ground, so he quickly fled into the distance.
However, Jack was extremely cunning. When he saw the Flying Creek Snow Wolf running into the distance, he immediately turned around to attack Mo Fan. Mo Fan was fine taking on three Mages at the same time, but when Jack and his Poison Armor Scorpion joined the fight, he was immediately in great danger.
As such, the Flying Creek Snow Wolf could not afford to run away. He had to keep the Poison Armor Scorpion and Jack busy.
The Poison Armor Scorpion was already stronger than the Flying Creek Snow Wolf. It was likely to be slightly stronger than Teenage Flame Belle, not to mention that Jack was also attacking the Flying Creek Snow Wolf with two other Elements. The Flying Creek Snow Wolf was having a hard time against them.
It was not long before the Flying Creek Snow Wolf’s handsome fur was covered in fresh blood, with festering wounds inflicted by the poisonous stinger all over its body.
The Flying Creek Snow Wolf uttered a wild howl.
It was his first battle after his recent growth. If he was still unable to defeat Mo Fan’s enemy after trying so hard to achieve the Commander-level, how could he possibly provide any assistance to his master?
The man was right, he was just a low-level demon wolf that had grown into a Commander-level creature from a Servant-class Spirit Wolf, but it did not necessarily mean he was as timid and weak as a Servant-class creature!
