I heard several screams as I killed the Blue Agate Armored Elephantman, and loudest of all voices was that of Black Agate Armored Elephantman who came at me with fury.
With the death of Blue Agate Armored Elephantman, all of them activated their Mystic Methods, and I was quite surprised to find all of their Mystic Methods were the same, they all practiced the defensive type Mystic Method.
At first glance, it seemed to idiotic to choose for all to have to one type of Mystic Method, but when one looked at their racial traits, it became quite evident that it is the best choice of Mystic Method for them.
Agate Armored Elephantmen is one of defensively best Grimm Monsters, and when one added the defensive Mystic Method, they became near invincible in their level.
With their double-layered defense, even the Mystic Skills were only able to scratch the surface of their defense. If the Tower hadn't refined grey Energy, I wouldn't even dare to use my mystic skill against these Agate Armored Elephantmen as it would be a waste.
The Dark Grey Energy, which is refined by the Chaos Crus.h.i.+ng Holy Tower, gives my Mystic Method the power of Level 2 despite being in Level 1, which is why I was able to breach such terrific defense with each.
All the Agate Armored Elephantmen attacked me simultaneously, but I disappeared from my spot again, and this time and I appeared close to the white Agate Armored Elephantman, but instead of appearing in front of it, I appeared behind its back.
I could have killed the two Agate Armored Elephantmen from their back, it would have been way too easier with the help of the Short Instant Movements and would not have to be always careful about their trucks, but I did not, I attack their fronts to create an illusion in their mind that I would only attack from the front, so their backs would be less guarded.
So that I could get an extra kill like this, killing this White Agate Armored, Elephantman was most comfortable as I just had to appear behind it with the short instant movement and then activated the Instant Blast coupled with Breeze of Withering sand and voila, another dead Agate Armored Elephantman.
The Black Agate Armored Elephantman shouted again, and I thought its angry attack would come again, but to my surprise, it had quickly formed the defensive circle with two other Agate Armored Elephantmen and who looking at me as if I am some kind of demon that eats their youngs which is what they do by the way.
"Friend, why so scared, I was just playing around!" I said as I appeared five meters away from Black Agate Armored Elephantman, if it wanted, it could easily attack me, but it did not; it just looked at me with extreme hatred and killing intent.
I did not move from my spot the same as for the Grimm Monster, the Black Agate Armored Elephantman, who is facing me looking at me with all sorts of hateful emotions.
Few seconds pa.s.sed by; both did not talk, just stared at each other. I thought we would keep looking at it for a while, but to my surprise, Black Agate Armored Elephantman blinked all the hateful emotions that were present in its eyes disappeared, and its eyes became emotionless again.
It is not like it had calmed down, no it had not calmed down; it had just buried those emotions deep in its heart, which could explode any time like a seething volcano.
"Friend, we are very sorry we have disturbed you, and we have already paid the price for that." Black Agate Armored Elephantman said as it looked at the three dead bodies of its brothers with deep pain in its eyes.
"We would be grateful if we could solve this amicably; if you let us go, we are willing to provide you the precious treasure." said the Black Agate Armored Elephantman, and next moment, it cautiously took out a yellow-colored th.o.r.n.y fruit.
Yellow Thorn Peach!
I barely controlled myself from sucking a sharp breath when I saw the fruit in its hand. This th.o.r.n.y fruit is Yellow Thorn Peach, it is a very precious fruit which is used in the making of the very precious strengthening potion.
If I drank this potion made of Yellow Thorn Peach then my body and soul will reach that of Peak Nine Star Elite directly or I might even be able to cross past it.
With that strength I will not have to use the Swirling Armor to have the power of Peak Nine Star Elite, I will have it on my own.
"As you know friend this is a very precious strengthening treasure, especially for you humans, if you promise to let us go, I will give this to you." said the Agate Armored Elephantman with gritted teeth, it is clear that it did not want to give it to me but it had no choice but to give it to me.
"It is indeed precious treasure, " Puch!
I said, but halfway into a sentence, I suddenly disappeared; seeing that the Grimm Monsters got alarmed to move back to save its brothers, but it was already too late as my sword had pierced through the chest of the Orange Agate Armored Elephantman before moving back to my place.
"But, I will get Yellow Thorn Peach and other treasures you have once I killed you!" I completed my sentence with a second of break and rushed to the Black Agate Armored Elephantman.
"You have underestimated me too much, human!" Black Agate Armored Elephantman roared as its eyes became red, and next moment, I sensed s.h.i.+t load of Occult energy entering its body.
It has already reached the peak of Nine Star Silver Elite, and overdrafts of occult energy have made it even stronger, but I am not afraid, as long as it did not cross the boundary of the Nine Star Elite, I have nothing to fear.
The occult energy it is sucking madly making it quite powerful, but it will not help in crossing that boundary of the Nine Star Elite, I sensed the battle power of those who are above Silver Elite, and below Golden Elite, they are terror if I had come across them the even with my current power, all I could do is run using all my strength.
The difference in power became greater, and as one reaches a higher level of power.
I reached next it and attacked while dodging the hammer of it, but it's whip-like flexible trunk thwarted my attack. As expected, this Black Agate Armored Elephantman, a peak Nine Star Elite Powerhouse, which has overdrafted the occult energy, it will be very difficult to kill it.
Clang Clang Clang…
My sword clas.h.i.+ng against the trunk of the Black Agate Armored Elephantman as I won't be an idiot enough to clash my sword against the hammer of it, which had the force of the mountain.
I fight against it while using a short instant movement every second; if one looked at our battle, they would seem me disappearing and appearing every second at different spots as if I am teleporting.
'It is time to kill it!' I said with a sigh after half an hour later, I have become capable of killing it fifteen minutes ago, but I wanted to polish my Instant Blast and Short Instant Movement fighting with it.
Its body had become yellow due to overdrafted energy, but it is still fighting strong, but I who had identified all of the loopholes in its fighting style have no problem killing it, and I did by piercing my sword into its heart by exploiting the small gap between its trunk.
