Book 7: Chapter 116: Great Magicians were also burdens
There wasnt any time to dodge, so Arch Magus Ofalian, Arch Magus Laduce, and the other thirteen Great Magicians could only release their magic barriers at full force to cover themselves with.
When the several dozen white lights hit the magic barrier, it didnt create an intense explosion like they had expected. Rather the sound was very small and it was like several balloons popping as the milky white light create milky white sparkles that spread across the area.
Arch Magus Ofalian and Arch Magus Laduca only had time to shout this before the magic space around them became very unstable.
With their great control over magic, they were able to maintain their magic barriers with great difficulty, but for the weaker thirteen Great Magicians, they started swaying in the sky. Not to mention keeping up their magic barriers, even being able to stay in the sky was hard for them.
It was clear that the attack that they took was similar to the light blue glows that the Frestech Chamber of Commerce guards had shot from Mero Citys city walls and their Magic Tanks. They were able to greatly disturb the magic area around them.
This kind of attack seemed to be the Frestech Chamber of Commerces way of targeting magicians because normal soldiers wouldnt even be able to feel the elemental magic energy around them, so there was no need to mention then being affected by disruptions in magic space.
But the difference was that the lights that came from these Magic Airships were clearly at a higher level.
With the previous attacks, the Great Magicians were able to remain relaxed and unaffected, but with this attack, even Arch Magus Ofalian and Arch Magus Laduca were greatly affected by it. It could be seen how powerful this attack was.
“Ofalian, it seems like your guess before isnt right. The Frestech Chamber of Commerces toys arent like your magic domain at all. At least when facing your magic domain, I wouldnt suffer that much.” Arch Magus Laduca knitted his brows.
Arch Magus Ofalians face was as still as water as he looked at the Magic Airships in the distance with eyes filled with doubt.
Hearing what Arch Magus Laduca said, he couldnt help shaking his head.
“I dont know, perhaps that kid Xu Yi has his own understanding or the Frestech Chamber of Commerce developed something that belongs to them recently. In short…..our situation isnt that good. We should find a way to solve our problems first.”
Arch Magus Laduca nodded. He took a deep breath and released all his magic power, trying to use his unique magic domain to see if he could calm down the chaotic magic space around him.
However, as soon as he made a move, those Magic Airships also made a move.
This time, the Magic Airships no longer released those milky white lights, but rather several balls of flame in their direction.
The fifteen magicians, including the two Arch Magi saw this and their expressions changed.
There was no need to check it with their magic power, just based on their eyes alone, they could see the terrifying might contained in these balls of flames.
But because they had been affected by that earlier attack, the magic space around them was still in chaos and they couldnt control the elemental magic energy around them at will. Naturally they werent able to release the magic barrier like before to protect themselves.
If they lost the protection of this magic barrier, their defenses werent that much stronger than a normal persons.
This kind of terrifying attack, if they couldnt avoid it, there was only death.
The attacks from these Magic Airships were very fast. As soon as it was released from the Magic Airship, it was already in front of them in the blink of an eye.
This time, only the two Arch Magi had the power to resist.
Arch Magus Ofalian and Arch Magus Laduca didnt dare hold back. They released all their magic power and released their magic domain, covering themselves and the thirteen Great Magicians around them.
Although the attributes of their two domains were different, with the two silently working together and with their full strength released, they were able to regain control over the magic space in a large area around them. It made the chaotic magic space from before controllable once again.
The several dozen balls of flame containing terrifying might was already in front of them.
The two Arch Magi didnt have time to think as they released all their magic power again, gathering the elemental magic energy in the magic space they controlled with great difficulty to open up two magic barriers, protecting themselves and the thirteen Great Magicians behind them.
“Hong, hong, hong, hong, hong!”
This attack wasnt as silent as the one from before and instantly exploded into countless giant balls of flames, turning the sky a dark red colour.
The sound of the explosions spread far, causing the reinforcement army from the southwest Governor Manor and the magicians that had been left behind to start worrying.
Although they were confident in the two excellency Arch Magi and the thirteen powerful Great Magicians, the power of the Frestech Chamber of Commerces Magic Airships seemed so terrifying that they couldnt help feeling worried.
After around a minute, the explosions stopped and the flames faded, gradually revealing the figures in the air.
The people of the Candra Empire stared on and seeing that there werent any figures missing, adding up to fifteen, they let out a sigh of relief.
It was good. Even if the Frestech Chamber of Commerces Magic Airships had terrifying attacks, they couldnt do anything to the incomparably powerful excellency Arch Magi!
Subconsciously, they had already excluded the thirteen Great Magicians.
However, hearing the cheers from the army and the magicians left behind in the distance, Arch Magus Ofalian and Arch Magus Laduca looked at each other before revealing bitter smiles.
Although they had stopped this terrifying attack and could maintain their magic barrier, which looked quite easy, just using their magic domains to take back the magic space around them had used up quite a bit of magic power.
Then when they resisted these terrifying attacks, their magic power consumption was even more terrifying.
With just a single move, this huge amount of magic power that seemed bottomless to other magicians had already been reduced by a third.
If they had to do this several times, even they werent confident in stopping it.
Arch Magus Laduca had a thought before letting out a sigh and turning to the thirteen Great Magicians to say, “Alright, you can go back.”
The thirteen Great Magicians were all stunned.
Arch Magus Laducas meaning was…..they were useless here
But thinking about it, they felt that Arch Magus Laduca wasnt wrong at all.
That attack just now, it had already taken all their power just to remain in the air.
Then in the following attack, if it wasnt for the two Arch Magi protecting them, even if they werent directly blown up, they would be on the edge of death.
So to be honest, they wouldnt help at all if they remained here. Rather, they would burden the two excellent Arch Magi and force them to consume magic power to protect them.
Thinking of this, the thirteen Great Magicians lost their spirit.
They were respected Great Magicians!
Even in the Candra Empire, they were respected people no matter where they went. They were in the upper level of the magician circles pyramid, but now, they had become burdens!
But no matter how unwilling they were, they had to acknowledge this fact.
Not to mention there were two excellency Arch Magi in front of them, it wasnt their time to be disappointed.
So the thirteen Great Magicians could only give nods in agreement before turning to leave.
But the Frestech Chamber of Commerces Magic Airships didnt stop at all. As soon as they wanted to move, there was another attack.
This time, there were two attacks being released at the same time.
First was the several dozen milky white lights before several dozen red balls of flames followed them.
“Humph! You want to keep us all here” Arch Magus Ofalian gave a cold snort. He induced all his magic power and spread his magic domain in front of him, controlling the magic space in front.
“Well protect you, you leave first.” Arch Magus Laduca waved his hand at the thirteen Great Magicians. Then he also followed Arch Magus Ofalian as he used his magic domain to control the magic space.
They had some experience after dealing with the attack earlier. They knew that before the milky white lights destroyed the magic space around them, they had to gain control of the magic space so they could deal with the attack that followed.
As expected, the milky white lights in front slammed into Arch Magus Ofalians magic domain that had been spread first and immediately exploded like before.
Then Arch Magus Ofalian felt like his magic domain had been seriously attacked, almost making him lose control of his magic domain.
This caused him to be shocked.
As an Arch Magus who could control magic domains, he had already exceeded the understanding of other magicians on magic space.
Normally speaking, only when he met another Arch Magus would there be a situation where his magic space would become unstable.
However, the Frestech Chamber of Commerce hadnt sent out a single magician, not to mention an Arch Magus. They attacked with these Magic Airships and they could match the power of an Arch Magus. It really was terrifying.
“Hong, hong, hong, hong!”
Following the milky white light came the several dozen balls of flame. Arch Magus Ofalians magic barrier that had been prepared ahead of time was hit with a series of powerful explosions.
Arch Magus Ofalian could feel that his magic power was dropping significantly with each explosion and knew that he couldnt continue like this.
“Laduca, we cant just let ourselves be hit like this, lets……”
Arch Magus Ofalian had just turned and said half his words to Arch Magus Laduca before he stopped.
He was surprised to see that the thirteen Great Magicians who they had ordered to leave just now were still behind them. Not a single one of them had retreated.
Arch Magus Ofalian knitted his brows and wanted to shout out a question, but one of the Great Magicians gave a gulp before saying with an ugly look on his face, “Your excellency Arch Magi, we……we cant leave at all……”-
