Chapter 67: Chapter 66: Mysterious Coffin, Lord’s Talent Promotion
Translator: Dragon Boat Translation Editor: Dragon Boat Translation
A huge oval-shaped underground space appeared in his line of sight.
It was more than 50 meters tall, and its diameter was more than a kilometer.
This underground space had a thick layer of white bones as if millions of people were buried there.
Countless skeleton warriors, zombies, ghosts, skeleton archers, and skeleton mages were on the ground of the white bones.
But the most surprising thing was the center.
There was a mountain peak made of countless white bones.
A black coffin was on the top of the mountain peak.
Mysterious, dark, and terrifying.
All the negative adjectives could not describe the visual impact of this scene.
Richard, who was greatly shocked, suddenly narrowed his eyes.
But when he came back to his senses, an uncontrollable excitement immediately rose in his heart.
What a good fellow, he had discovered a great treasure.
He took two deep breaths before he suppressed the excitement in his heart.
His thoughts whirled.
“There are probably more than three large teams of skeleton warriors stationed here. There is also at least one large team of zombies and ghosts. There are also four to five squadrons of skeleton archers and two to three squadrons of skeleton mages…”
Richard’s gaze turned solemn after he carefully sized them up.
The number of these undead tribes was simply ridiculous.
He would have to first annihilate this troop of thousands of undead tribes if he wanted to obtain that coffin…
At this moment, he noticed a new undead unit from the corner of his eye.
Under the mountain of white bones, the white bone knights riding on undead horses stood like statues.
These undead creatures were made entirely of white bones, and they carried a long white bone knight spear.
There were as many as five teams.
One of the squads even had a bone crown on its head.
Its aura was filled with pressure.
Richard subconsciously opened the opponent’s stats panel.
[Bone Knight Commander]
[Level: 5 (Elite soldier: Strength increases by 15%)
[Potential: Rare 2-stars]
[Skills: Body of Bones (C-rank) — Immune to poison, curses, plague, and strength increases by 70%.]
[Charge (C-rank) — Drives the undead horse to charge at the enemy, and speed increases by 60%. Impact increases by 50%.]
[Combo (C-rank) — Attacks five times in a row in a very short period.]
[Heavy Slash (C-rank) — After charging up, uses the undead horse’s strength to launch a fatal attack, able to unleash 300% of its strength.]
[Race Talent: Running speed increases by 30%, impact increases by 30%.]
[Entrapment Charge: When the charge distance is greater than 30 meters, collision force increases by 20%. When the charge distance is greater than 50 meters, collision force increases by 40%. When the charge distance is greater than 100 meters, the collision force increases by 60%. It can also cause a 5-second stun.]
[Description: The cavalry of the dead, it is best not to stand on their charge path.]
“Damn, all their skills are rare-level C-rank soldiers!”
Richard’s eyes narrowed.
All the skills of the Bone Knight Commander buffed speed and impact.
The characteristics of the cavalry were brought to the extreme.
It would be fatal if the opponent run.
His expression turned serious, and he looked at the skeletal knights who did not wear the crown of bones.
[Level: 4 (Rare potential)]
The skills were starkly the same, but their attributes were much lower than the Bone Knight Commander.
Fortunately, no heroic units were found.
This was surely the best news.
To have a heroic commander and to not have a heroic commander were two completely different concepts.
With a heroic unit, they might not even be able to enter…
Suddenly, a roar sounded, and all the undead units in the underground world turned their heads to look at the entrance of the tunnel.
The skeleton warriors and zombies, who had wandered, suddenly swarmed over like sharks that had seen blood!
The entire underground world was in an uproar.
Richard’s face turned cold.
“Everyone, retreat into the tunnel and use the terrain of the tunnel to fight!
“Scorpion warriors, take the front!
“Don’t fight, retreat while fighting!”
Richard gave a series of decisive orders, and the army immediately had a target.
The group retreated into the depths of the tunnel and prepared to fight.
After a few breaths.
Countless skeleton warriors poured into the underground tunnel like a tide.
In the middle, there were still a large number of zombies and ghosts.
A small team of Poisonous Scorpion Warriors simply could not stop so many enemies.
Richard immediately gave the order.
“Leave five of the Axe of the Dead. The rest of you, fight with the Poisonous Scorpion Warriors!”
They did not have enough manpower because Richard ordered a small team of Poisonous Scorpion Warriors to guard the outside to prevent the back roads from disruption.
If the front row could not stop the enemies, it would be useless even if there were too many people at the back.
Two small teams of soldiers blocked the passage and suppressed the crazy undead zombies, ghosts, and skeletons.
Richard turned to look at the Cursed Pharaoh and said, “Get the scorpion warriors stationed outside to come in and help immediately!”
There were many good things hidden in this mysterious land of the undead, especially the coffin on the mountain of bones. They could not miss it.
They could not care less now. They had to concentrate their strength.
For the first time, Richard experienced the overbearing tyranny of skeleton tactics.
The enemy’s strength wasn’t strong, but it was a scene where one couldn’t see the end of the line and didn’t know when it would stop. It would create a huge psychological pressure on the enemy.
Richard commanded the army to fight and retreat at the same time. He used the terrain advantage to devour the number of undead.
Fortunately, this was a narrow underground area. If he were to be placed on the ground, he would probably be drowned by the enemy in an instant.
The Axe of the Dead, the Poisonous Scorpion Warrior, and the Cursed Pharaoh were three in one. They forcefully repelled wave after wave of attacks.
Not long after.
[Ding~ Your level has risen to level 5. You can freely change ranks.]
[Ding~ Your talent, Desert Lord, has been promoted. You have comprehended more desert power.]
The moment Richard heard the system notification, a huge amount of energy surged out of his body. Every cell in his body was filled with power.
And deep in his bloodline, some kind of ability rapidly awakened.
Finally, he had reached level 5…
He took a deep breath and suppressed the surprise in his heart.
This was not the time to be idle.
There was no place for him to change ranks and learn skills.
He braced himself and continued to command the battle. He was the brain of the troop. He was indispensable.
Ten minutes, twenty minutes…
Richard did not even know how many skeletons and zombies his troops had killed when he commanded them to retreat to the second underground space to hunt the zombies.
The enemy’s numbers did not even seem to have slowed down at all.
The auras of several troops had already dropped to the freezing point. The Cursed Pharaoh had long been exhausted.
The situation was precarious.
The system notification rang at this moment.
[Ding~ Axe of the Dead, Poisonous Scorpion Warrior, Cursed Pharaoh. These three units have gained a massive amount of experience through battle. Their levels have been promoted to level 5.]
Richard, who was under immense pressure, laughed out loud. He had gritted his teeth and persevered for so long just for this moment.
The level up would not be of much help to the current situation.
However, the troop was different.
In the next moment, the auras of all the soldiers rose rapidly. And within a few breaths, they had recovered to their peak.
The cooldown time of their skills had also been refreshed.
Their auras were obviously much stronger than before.
Not only that, all three of the teams received the unique attribute bonuses of an elite soldier after they had reached level 5.
[Poisonous Scorpion Warrior: Level 5 (Elite Soldier: Strength increased by 15%)]
[Axe of the Dead: Level 5 (Elite Soldier: Strength increased by 15%)]
[Curse Pharaoh: Level 5 (Elite Soldier: Magic damage increased by 15%)]
Richard perked up.
He wanted that coffin, for sure.
