Archean Eon Art Chapter 296
Chapter 296 Casualties
"Its very difficult to kill a fifth Firmament demon monarch," said Meng Chuan.
Marquis West Sea nodded. "Thats right. After reaching the fifth Firmament, these demon monarchs have extremely strong vitality."
"Ive already captured it alive. After the battle, Ill hand it over to Archean Mountain," said Meng Chuan.
"Captured alive?" Marquis West Sea was alarmed. According to his knowledge, even if a fifth Firmament demon monarchs body was diced up, they could still counterattack at any moment. He only dared to come forward when the fifth Firmament demon monarchs demonic power had completely disappeared. He was afraid of being a burden on Meng Chuan if he was ambushed.
"Oh, right. This is Senior Brother Yus corpse." Meng Chuan waved his hand, and Marquis Purple Rains corpse appeared on the ground beside him. The white-haired Marquis Purple Rain had a bloody hole in his chest; his heart had been torn out.
"Senior Brother Yu." Marquis West Sea looked at the corpse with grief.
"Marquis West Sea, Ill leave the matters here to you. I still need to take a look at other areas." Meng Chuan looked at Marquis Purple Rains corpse and felt somewhat sad. However, he had seen too many deaths over the years.
"Alright." Marquis West Sea nodded. He knew that Meng Chuan was in charge of providing reinforcements in this region.
Meng Chuan immediately transformed into a bolt of lightning and vanished from the city.
Although the other cities and medium-sized World Entrances he was in charge of had retracted their requests for help, Meng Chuan still wanted to check on them.
Supremacy Qin Wu streaked across the sky like a sword. When he arrived outside a large city, he was about 50 kilometers away from the battle between Godfiends and demon monarchs.
Swish! Swish! Swish!
On the battlefield, about 50 kilometers away, sword beams naturally condensed in the void and killed six fourth Firmament demon monarchs swiftly.
Supremacy Qin Wu cultivated the Thirteen Swordbane Fiend Body. At his realm, everything within 50 kilometers of him was his territory. He could condense sword beams and kill enemies with a thought. To him, a fourth Firmament demon monarch was very weak. He did not need to release his Swordbanes.
Although killing demon monarchs is easy, it takes time to travel to the various locations. Qin Wu stood in midair as he looked at the token in his hand. All cities within 1,000 kilometers have canceled their requests for help. The battle should be over. Our human race suffered heavy losses in this battle. However, I wonder how heavy the losses are for the demons.
He flew to a large mountain more than 50 kilometers away and sat cross-legged on the mountain peak. Qin Wu had to stay prepared to help any area at a moments notice. After all, the war had yet to end, and the demons might attack again. Time passed.
As night fell, the world began to calm down.
The next day, at the break of dawn.
Whoosh. An illusory man appeared beside Qin Wu.
"Master." The illusory man respectfully said, "Ive returned to Demon Sage Nine Abysss pocket grotto-heaven. Almost all demon monarch teams have returned."
"They have all returned to the grotto-heaven?" Qin Wu frowned slightly. "From the looks of it, they have temporarily stopped attacking? How are the losses on the demons side?"
The illusory man sighed in amazement. "Terrible. I heard from many demon monarchs that Regis Godfiends ambushed them when they attacked the cities! They said our humans Regis Godfiends are very sinister. They used their Seamless domains to approach them and attack them suddenly once they were close enough. The demon monarch teams suffered quite tragically. Its considered pretty good if two or three demon monarchs in a team escaped. There are even a few teams that failed to return at all."
"Okay." Supremacy Qin Wu nodded slightly. "Do you understand the general losses of the demons?"
"Im not sure." The illusory man hesitated and said, "I estimate that the demons have lost about 50% of their forces in the human world. Its just my guess."
"Alright, continue keeping tabs. Inform me if anything develops," instructed Qin Wu.
"I think the demons have lost their morale. I dont think there will be a second wave of attacks for a while," said the illusory man.
Qin Wu smiled. "I hope so!"
Demon Sage Nine Abysss grotto-heaven.
Many fourth Firmament demon monarchs gathered together. They drank, ate, and chatted.
"We tried to kill the human Godfiends, but King True Martial suddenly appeared!" A white-browed wolf demon monarch couldnt help but feel afraid as he held a cup of alcohol.
"King True Martial Hes one of the most powerful human Regis Godfiends. Its said that he can even fight a demon sage. The six of us were scared silly, and immediately scattered. We burrowed into the ground and fled. Its only because my Essence Soul had reached the third level that I remained lucid. This allowed me to barely escape and survive," said a red fox demon monarch.
"Its not bad for two of you to survive after meeting King True Martial," said a demon monarch.
The red fox demon monarch said, "That King True Martial was eager to save Godfiends. If he had restrained his aura and carefully approached us, we wouldve had more time. We couldve killed Marquis Azure Wood. Instead, he showed himself from afar to scare us. We immediately fled, and that allowed Marquis Azure Wood to live."
"We were in quite a sorry state as well. We encountered a strange peacock beast while attacking a city. When the peacock beast spread its tail, golden beams of light shot out. They were Regis Godfiend-level attacks. We were nearly scared silly by the barrage of hundreds of golden beams. Two of us managed to escape thanks to our powerful bodies," said a pig demon while chewing on meat.
"A peacock beast? What peacock beast?"
"Could it be a demon?" The other demon monarchs were puzzled.
"No." The pig demon shook his head. "Its not a demon, not a human. It felt more like a special weapon that isnt alive."
"Our team also encountered a strange beast. That strange beast was definitely comparable to a peak fifth Firmament demon monarch. When it opened its mouths, everything turned pitch-black. There was no light at all. We fled underground in fear, and only I survived."
The demon monarchs shared their experiences. They still felt lingering fear when they thought back on their experiences.
"Nine Abyss." In the main hall, a black-robed figure flipped through a dossier and said, "From the intelligence provided by the demon monarchs that have returned, most of the human cities are guarded by Regis Godfiend-level forces"
Demon Sage Nine Abyss listened silently.
"Only a very small number of places were guarded by Marquis Godfiends. They chose extremely powerful Marquis Godfiends to work together and guard these areas. When two such Marquis Godfiends joined forces, they were able to fend off our six-man demon monarch teams. The black-robed figure continued, "Also, other experts reinforced them when they arrived. We can currently confirm that Archean Mountains rescue team consists of Supremacy Qin Wu, Supremacy Li Guan, King True Martial, King Clear Jade, and Marquis Eastcalm. The ones responsible for reinforcing Black Sand Dynasty are Supremacy Bai Yaoyue, Supremacy Meng Tiange, King Transcendence, and King Molten."
"King Clear Jade? King Molten?" Demon Sage Nine Abyss said, "Both of them are Regis Godfiends from 500 to 600 years ago. They should be nearly 1,000 years old if theyre still alive to this day."
"Yes." The black-robed figure said, "Most of the humans Regis Godfiend-level combat forces were those from hundreds of years ago. There are also some rare treasures and weapons protecting various places. Weve suffered heavy losses across the entire world."
"I know," said Demon Sage Nine Abyss, "I can sense how tragic our losses are through the token. What we need to know now is how bad the humans losses are? If the humans losses are just as tragic, our losses will be worth it."
