Chapter 40: Kill the Swordfish Leader
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
The swordfish leader was furious. It aimed the two-toothed harpoon in its hand at Jon and activated its proud skill.
This move was similar to Jon’s previous leap wave attack. The swordfish leader turned into a wave and attacked Jon. When it got close to Jon, it stabbed its steel harpoon at Jon from the hidden wave.
“Magic Spirit Attack!”
When the wave of the swordfish leader was about to approach, Jon used Magic Spirit Attack on it. After being stunned for almost a second, it missed the best opportunity to attack Jon. At the same time, Jon’s mana entered the body of the swordfish leader along the path of the spiritual attack and disrupted its ability circulation, allowing it to appear from the wave.
“Magic Tree Seal!”
Jon used the Magic Tree Seal, and four ice crystal trees filled with magic fruit grew out from the swordfish leader’s four directions, sealing it within.
The magic fruit absorbed mana from the surrounding environment, and when it grew to a certain extent, it exploded.
The seawater was blasted in all directions by the explosion, forming a vacuum in the seawater for a short time.
The swordfish leader rushed out from the explosion, looking a little miserable. It seemed that the magic tree seal had made it suffer a lot.
When the swordfish leader was restricted by the Magic Tree Seal, Jon had already approached. He waited for the swordfish leader to escape before launching a second wave of attacks.
The swordfish leader raised its harpoon to block Jon’s fist. Magic Fist was blocked by it, but the subsequent burst of mana corroded into its body along the steel harpoon.
“Ice Magic Sword!”
Jon summoned the Ice Magic Sword, intending to end the battle.
Jon originally thought that with his identity as the leader of the swordfish tribe, the weapon in its hand must be an extraordinary weapon. He was afraid that he would have use Triple Sword Ultimate before he could cut it in half.
However, he did not expect that just as he summoned the Ice Magic Sword, the sword cut the leader’s harpoon in half.
The sword’s momentum did not decrease as it landed on the swordfish leader’s body. Immediately, blood gushed into the sea.
“Magic Spirit Attack!”
Taking advantage of its injury, Jon followed up with the Magic Spirit Attack, causing the swordfish leader to fall into a daze.
He took a step forward and stabbed the Ice Magic sword into the swordfish leader’s heart.
“Ding! Mission completed. Level 42 swordfish leader quasi-lord level killed. Level fragment + 450,000 obtained. Successfully extracted advanced water attribute fragments + 1500 from the target’s body!”
‘Ding! Divine power compound detected. Do you wish to extract it?’
The virtual screen made a mark, indicating that the flag hanging on the swordfish leader’s waist was actually a medium of the gods. Could it be that the swordfish leader was instantly killed before he could even reveal his trump card?
This was a little awkward. This story taught us that it was better not to hide our trump cards. If there were, we should have used them earlier.
Jon chose to extract them immediately.
“Ding! Extraction successful. Congratulations, host, you have obtained 30,000 divine power points!”
Jon was shocked. So much divine power? This swordfish leader did not have any trump cards that were useless. Instead, it did not open its arsenal.
Jon felt so wronged for it.
All the remaining swordfish knights were terrified. Their leader had actually been defeated in just a few rounds. The opponent’s strength must have already surpassed that of a quasi-lord.
“Everyone, run! The leader is dead! The enemy has a lord-tier elemental creature!”
The swordfish knights collapsed and began to flee on a large scale.
“Don’t leave anyone alive!”
Deep sea fairy elder raised her arms and shouted. She led the elemental creatures and began to chase after the swordfish clan’s defeated soldiers.
As these swordfish knights could only provide Jon with too few level fragments, he was too lazy to continue chasing. He only allowed the elemental creatures to move freely.
After the end of the battle, the elemental creatures all looked at Jon with devout conviction. The reason why they were able to win this battle was entirely because of Jon’s personal combat strength.
The system notified Jon that he had detected a more devout faith and obtained new divine power.
Jon thought of something.
“Daria, establish a faction with me as its leader and absorb all kinds of water elemental plane creatures.”
This mission was originally best left to the deep-sea water fairy elders. She was more active in all aspects, but she hadn’t been in a normal water elemental plane for god knows how many years, so she wasn’t very familiar with all aspects of the water elemental plane. Thus, he could only hand it over to Daria, who was a native creature.
She had just advanced to commander-level through Jon a few days ago, so she shouldn’t have much of a problem in terms of loyalty.
Daria was very happy with Jon’s thoughts. He was already a lord-level creature, and he was already qualified to build a city to nurture his own faction. If she were to be the one to do this, in the faction they would build in the future, her status would be undoubtedly very high.
Thus, Daria carefully thought about it.
“I think we should head to the western seas. The factions over there are relatively small, and the factions there are constantly battling each other. It’s perfect for us to gather and absorb them. Moreover, the number of creatures over there is also of a certain scale. After stabilizing it, the potential for development would not be small.”
Daria had already existed in the water elemental plane for quite some time. Her understanding of the nearby seas was far from what Jon, who had only been here for a few months, could compare to. Thus, Jon gave the order to follow Daria’s instructions, the tribe began to move westward.
During the relocation process, a human girl’s voice sounded in Jon’s mind one day.
“Sir Jon, Can I summon you now?”
The human girl’s voice was obviously Iris.
After receiving Jon’s confirmation, Iris instructed, “There’s no battle here for the time being. Please respond to the summoning in projection mode.”
After Jon agreed, the system’s notification sounded in his ears.
“Ding, received a summoning signal. Do you wish to respond to the summoning?”
Jon did not think about it and chose to respond to the summoning.
“Ding, the host’s response has been confirmed. Please choose to respond to the summoning in the main body mode or in the projection mode.”
“Respond in the projection mode.”
Following Iris’s instructions, Jon chose to respond in the projection mode.
After choosing, a pulling force from the world appeared on Jon’s body. He disappeared from the water elemental plane and appeared on the mortal continent.
In a field, a blue-haired girl held a silver staff in her hand and wore a loose mage robe. There was also a badge of a church clergy pinned on her chest. This person was Jon’s contract signer, Iris.
A large teleportation circle opened on a flat piece of land. A majestic and powerful figure appeared out of thin air in the summoning circle. Even though it was only a projection of thirty percent of Jon’s original body’s power, Jon’s figure was still as tall as a mountain and filled with a sense of oppression.
Stepping out of the summoning circle, Jon observed the surrounding desolate plain environment and asked Iris why she had summoned him.
