Grandmaster Of All Job Class - Chapter 187
Opening his pair of eyes, he felt that it was teary. Gasping air as he went back to his body. Breathing deep, he stand up and then opened the door. Watching if the cultists have already found out his location.
Taking a peek at the door, it was utterly silent. Exiting the place then went back to the entrance of the dungeon. He was walking towards the third path but he felt that more and more shadow clones were returning at his shadow. Making it more and more difficult for his mind to take.
Bearing the pain in his head, he moves deeper and deeper towards the cavern. With his vision enhanced by [Beast aura] white, he can see better in the dark. Making him stride the path without getting tripped.
As he went further, he can hear the booming sound in the distance. It was getting louder and louder as time passed by. He arrived at their sacrificial chamber with an opened portal at the front. Dark miasma was seen emerging from the said portal and it was disturbing to watch.
Joan was on the top of the chamber and there was a stair that leads down to the said chamber. With a balcony-like ambience as he looks at it. While [Sneak] was still active, he watched the shadow clones having a hard time. Torches lighted up the place and there, he saw the current battle transpiring.
They were effective in dealing damage as they have [Shadow travel]. The only problem was they were exhausted from fighting the enemy for who knows how long. They dashed again and then went assaulting the Demon general of whom were the leader.
They attacked in all directions and used [Shadow travel]. They turned into shadows and then, like a fish into the water, they travelled into the darkness. Appearing in the Demon general's back, they slashed and stabbed him at the same time. Making him swirl to shake them off.
The enemy they were facing then used its powers to heal himself. [Demonic heal] was used then his once bleeding physique, healed. He roared once again and then breathed dark miasma to the shadow clones. They dashed sideways to evade his fiery breath and it made the floor to be corroded.
They didn't have huge bursts like the other job classes but they were so fast to react and deal another round of damage. Joan observed them but thought that it was time to end their suffering. He used the Holy Knight job class then used his skill.
[Prison of light]
The Demon general shouted as he was caged by it. Breathing more miasma but it was damaged only to the minimum. Joan approached him and then used his area of effect skill.
The enemy writhed to the pain as Joan approached it. He breathed at him as he spat curses at him. Joan then erected a force field and shielded its breath. Using his Mage job class, he used his elemental spell [Ice spikes]. He summoned them and surrounded him in all directions. It screamed as it wanted to forcefully break the cage and also bite it off. Only resulting in burning its mouth in the process.
"Release me! Or he will come to you! He will not let this pass! He is the strongest of all the demons! Stronger than you! Hahaha!" He shouted.
Joan was intrigued by what he heard. It was the first time in a long time that someone was hailed as stronger than him. This made him grin at what he heard. Thinking that he will let him spout the name whoever it was.
"Tell me, who is time person or creature stronger than me? You caught my attention," Joan said to him, holding his chin.
"Hahaha! You are indeed a frog in the well not knowing how vast the oceans are! He is none other than The Child Of Darkness! Destined to defeat the Child Of Hope! Hahaha!" He shouted.
"Oh, that is sour to my taste. Anyways, that's still news to me. Thank you for spouting it all. I thank you for your service," Joan said then bowed.
With a snap of his fingers, all the ice spikes pierced his body. Still, it was not enough. He alternated the Ice spikes and Earthen spears on him in which made him struggle until his last breath. Some were blocked but it was not enough to stop all the nonstop barrage of the skills.
Its life was well spent. It was then, he absorbed all the essences on the place and his stats once again rose. It will be a matter of time till he will broke through in the six hundred stats.
It was then, the shadow clones approached him and Joan smiled at them. Congratulating them for a job well done. They all went sitting on the floor in sheer exhaustion. Stabbing their daggers on the floor whilst not uttering a word as they can't speak at all.
Joan then felt that something bad will happen. He felt that something from the gate was approaching. To his utter helplessness, he can close it but it will take some time. Also leaving himself defenceless at the time he will close it. To his disappointment, he has to face it with his current self.
"Everyone! I am sad to say this but prepare for battle!" Joan said to them.
Wolves appeared together with the crows. Also, the Giant wolves are together with them this time.
The shadow clones were invigorated and then their numbers are replenished.
Skeletons appeared bearing different weapons on their arsenals
The bear appeared and used the skill [Spirit armour] and [Gigantism].
Different vines appeared and were ready to attack anytime.
"Everyone! The enemy will come out of the portal and it is too late to close it. Defend it with your lives!" Joan said to them.
It was then, a loud shrieking sound was heard by all summons and also Joan. Making them perturbed by its origins. Remembering them made his hair go up.
"I am not mistaken about that sound. Those are Devils!" Joan shouted.
As Joan scanned his memory, they were the assassins of the demon realm. They can change their physical bodies to ethereal bodies that can pass through any physical materials and has prowess like a maniacal killing machine. Mindless bloodthirsty variants of demons. They were called devils for a reason.
It was then, their shrieks went louder and louder. The wolves grinned and they felt like they were about to release their wrath.
They felt alarmed by their voices. In meer estimation, they were numbered more than twenty. Just by their shrieks, Joan can confirm that they were great in numbers. As he waited for their appearance, he felt like he will struggle in their battle. His chance of survival was so slim if he will analyse it.
As the time ticks, his thoughts were divided as to whether he will leave the place or he will defend and close the portal.
The former was the practical choice but that also leaves their base attacked next. They were only a few clicks from their base of operations and it was only a walking distance. Not gonna let it happen where they were attacked while asleep with such vile creatures.
The latter was a death sentence or a suicide as we speak. It will be a matter of time when they will be overwhelmed by their numbers. Praying that they will kill them all before they were exhausted or their emergence will stop before it was too late.
Still, Joan decided to stay and held his ground. Breathing deep, he closed his eyes and then opened them. There appeared blue cold eyes and his breath let out cold steam.
"Your master calls thee,"
It was then, an army of ghosts went out of his body and they laughed wearing armours and weapons but all were in a bluish hue. They all kneeled at his presence and waited for his command.
"We await your orders–Ghost overlord!"
"Kill all devils," Joan replied and breathed out cold steam.
"As you wish," said their general.
"Prepare for battle!" The general shouted.
They all stood up then faced the portal.
"Our enemy rival–devils," said their general.
It was then, the enemies walked out of the portal. Their bodies were dark and semi-transparent. Only their eyes were red were seen. Winged and elongated arms. Floating mid-air and has the feet of a feline. The tail has a pointed spike and teeth were sharp as a razor.
They slowly emerged and then all the ghost army dashed towards them. Roaring and flooded the vicinity. The enemies dashed too towards them and they clashed.
"Summons now!" Joan exclaimed.
They all dashed towards them and soon the battle became chaotic. More and more devils went out of the portal and they clashed with the ghosts. They went all out and also with the side of Joan's forces.. Joan then used his Holy Knight job class and then battled together with them.
