Stone spears were not an instant magic, but they were triggered after the wall was up. It was just in time to dodge the magic heavy cavalry’s sight. The magic heavy cavalry did not really know how to fly. They leapt over the wall and fell onto the sharp stone spears.
The warhorses’ armor was not as great as those that they were carrying and the stone spears pierced through the horses’ chests and stomachs. Among the wailing of warhorses, the magic heavy cavalry that had not fallen into the trap suddenly slowed down their charging momentum.
The scariest thing about the heavy cavalry was their high speed charge. Forget the fact that they were holding lances, even if they did not carry anything, they would be able to knock the enemy dead with their charge. The quality of the cavalry was extremely high, the comrades in front were killed and the rest bypassed the wall and intended to pick up speed again.
At one-hundred meters, the magic heavy cavalry could still increase their speed to their maximum.
After two rounds of far distance attacks, the two hundred heavy cavalrymen lost forty people. Saleen’s troop had only released one round of arrows and cast a chained magic.
Saleen calculated the rhythm of the heavy cavalry that had picked up their speed again and he was getting ready to release some attack magic. These heavy calvarymen’s spears were stored with level one magic. A total of one-hundred and sixty of them, releasing a level one spell altogether would be able to sweep the campsite clean.
With such storage, the level one magic that magic apprentices stimulated would not be able to attack any further than thirty meters, maybe only twenty meters. The mages in the magic chariot released a ranged spell called element counterbalance. Such magic could easily offset part of the attack power.
As the magic heavy cavalry got closer, the magic in Saleen’s hands was released like a phantom. A bunch of level one magic almost covered the entire empty land before the campsite.
A standard double release, dozens of level one spells were released in chains as though it was only one mage casting them. The two grade-5 mages in the magic chariots thought Saleen was being a busybody at first. Looking at Saleen’s skills, they were impressed and immediately admired him.
It was not difficult to release a level one spell continuously, but Saleen did it so perfectly and gracefully as though the dozens of spells were a big scale spell.
In the mid of August, Titan was at its height of summer, but the temperature suddenly dropped and the ground had a thick layer of ice and frost.
The magic cavalry was still fifty meters away while Saleen’s instant frost was cast on the location of thirty meters. The magic cavalry suddenly increased their speed to their highest. If they were to stop again, there would not be any impact when they dashed towards the campsite.
They were reaching a distance of twenty meters, and the knights in front had no choice, but to lower their spears to fire the level one magic that was in the flame that was stored within the spear.
Over a hundred spears fired at the same time and broke Saleen’s instant frost.
When Saleen saw such a situation a he backed off. He already triggered the enemy to release their level magic earlier, he did not need to worry about the rest of the battle. No matter how fast the heavy cavalry were, they would not be able to dash through the defence of ten high level swordsmen. Behind the ten swordsmen, there were another four grand mages.
Saleen retreated not because he was afraid of these heavy cavalrymen, but he did not want to expose himself. To hide his current identity, he could not charge the enemy’s line personally. Lex would laugh at him otherwise.
Jason gave his closest mage to him, that had an implication. On Sregl Island, Saleen already had the possibility to participate or even wield great power. If so, his identity was not any less than a county king.
As expected, when Saleen retreated, Lex pushed open the carriage window and waved at him.
“Saleen, you don’t need to worry about the rest of the battle. There are two magic carriages, they can take care of it.”
Saleen smiled and reentered the magic chariot, “How was my magic? Give me some feedback.”
When Saleen spoke, he did not feel anything wrong at all. Narnia looked at him with rapt attention. Saleen displayed an unyielding personality unconsciously, but it did not seem skittish. That was a kind of self confidence, a passion towards magic.
“Just lacking of magic chords. You would be a grade-6 mage long ago otherwise,” Lex was impressed. Ever since Joey transformed Saleen’s body, he turned into a real magic genius.
Saleen laughed, ” We can’t be in a hurry about magic chords.”
He was clear with his own problem, he had less magic chords than other mages on the same level. It was already a miracle that the speed he leveled up with was as even-handed as the others. Now that he was even faster than the others, if he were to panic, that would simply be asking for it.
“It’s the best if you are not in a hurry. Don’t forget, you promised mister Joey that you would visit him at Holy Rock City.”
Saleen heard Lex’s reminder and recalled that he owed another person something. Joey was an expert that exceeded grade-9, Saleen would not break his promise.
The things that mages said were like water that was splashed, in could not be taken back.
To monsters like Joey, Saleen dared not go back on his words either. If he were to piss Joey off, he could only hide in Alchemy city, but Alchemy city might not want to offend people like Joey either.
Maybe Joey would not be able to collapse Alchemy City, but the people in Alchemy city had to go out after all, right? If they were to offend people like Joey, even if Alchemy city could guard against the city to death, it would be embarrassing.
“You don’t have to worry, Mister Joey wouldn’t harm you.” Lex comforted Saleen.
“What can I be worried about? I can’t fight against him anyway.” Saleen did not say what he was thinking. If he were to be looked on unfavorable by Joey, Lex’s plan would fall through too. The relationship between Joey and Lex seemed to be intimate, he guessed Joey would not do something that put Lex in a difficult position.
Because of him, his teacher helped Lex. Even when Sregl Island had problems in development, he would not consider relocating to far north.
As they were talking, the battle in front was getting heated. The two-hundred man heavy cavalry arrived at the entrance of the campsite, Wild Bear bellowed in anger and dashed among the cavalry.
The level one magic that was originally stored in the weapons of the magic heavy cavalry was used up on Saleen’s magic earlier. Wild Bear was waving his single edged cut horse sword. With one horizontal sweep, he chopped the first cavalryman that dashed before him at his waist directly. The spear that was longer than Wild Bear’s weapon did not manage to hit him.
The cavalry held the bottom part of the spear while Wild Bear’s blade was three meters long. The sword had a brutal aura that raised a sky of blood rain. Along with the waist of the cavalry, the warhorses necks were chopped off too.
The one sword shocked everyone at the scene.
The neck of the heavy cavalryman’s warhorses was wrapped up with armor, threefold magic armor with armor on warhorses were both split into two parts by Wild Bear with one swing. Wild Bear looked at ease, he charged the long sword to the front and penetrated another cavalryman’s chest.
The power of the cavalryman’s momentum became his assistant. He planted both his feet on the ground and took simple advanced steps. He slashed and chopped, every swing would kill a cavalryman.
The ten swordsmen behind Wild Bear followed suite. Ten cross guns were shot out like poisonous snakes, giving out glittery rays. The ten high level swordsmen were experts in the army and they were very familiar with how to deal with the cavalry’s skills. Using the cross guns to attack the horses legs first, horizontally with sharp blades or hooks, it would break the leg bones of the warhorses.
Although the knights that rolled down from the warhorses were wearing threefold armor, they had the strength to stand up. Why would Jola give them a chance to?
Jola was wearing a long cotton robe, holding tears in his hand. He leaped like he was flying. Every sword would rip into the eyes of the knights that fell on the group. The purple crystals shattered one after another. Under the attack of tears, they were even more fragile than egg shells.
The high level swordsmen cast with the Potence spell were not afraid of the enemy’s charging power. Their cross guns pushed over one swordsman after another. Jola went on with one swing and he would not attack the second time.
Lex smiled faintly in the magic chariot and she told Saleen, “If the robbers sent light cavalry and disturbed us with arrow, it would be considered as trouble and we had not have any choice but send out mages. As for heavy cavalry, it would be okay if they were fighting against normal mercenaries…”
As Lex had said, besides the first magic attack, the mages in the other magic chariots had yet to cast any attack magic. They had only been casting spells for their swordsmen occasionally when the magic was disappearing.
Attack magic could only last for very short periods, but the duration of defence magic entirely depended on the expense of the quantity of magic chords.
A standard grade-4 ice plate armor could definitely last for more than a half an hour. On the magic chariot, mages could even diminish the expense.
If only releasing supporting defence mage, these mages could probably take turns to continue the battle without worrying about the expense of magic chords.
A high level swordsman that was supported with magic not only would increase their battle power by double, but they could strengthen their bodies and have protection from high level magic shields. They were all like Wild Bear, they could dash against the heavy cavalry.
“Most of the army failed because of their mistakes on battle strategy, but not because of the vast difference in capability. Even if there weren’t magic chariots, the two-hundred heavy cavalry would not cause too much of a trouble to us.”
Sika pouted, before absolute power, battle strategy was useless. Such cavalry that were wearing turtle shells, she was not afraid of at all. As long as they had weapons on hand, her club, everyone would be pounded into dust.
Sika did not get it wrong. Lex had at least another three that had not been sent out; the two Black Metal Grand Swordmasters and Bain who was hidden in the dark. If the three of them were to take action, the hundred magic heavy cavalry was just a pile of losers to them.
Equipment was pretty important. If Sika did not have her unique weapon, it would not be that easy. The Black Metal Grand Swordmaster and Bain had weapons that could easily strike through magic armor too.
If the two-hundred heavy cavalry were to be on a battlefield, it was sufficient to crush a regiment. Before Lex’s selected troops, weapons did not act as advantage, but a burden.
The killing before the campsite was still going on. The heavy cavalry lost their speed and Wild Bear dashed into their formation to slit and chop both sides. They were demolished. In almost ten minutes time, the two-hundred heavy cavalry was left with only forty. The rest of the heavy cavalry was grievous and indignant, but they knew that they lost the in the attack. Almost all the enemy were dead or injured, but the campsite was left untouched. The mages inside started casting attack magic and released spells would lay one of their comrades down.
“Hold on a little longer. The enemy will definitely have one of their soldiers killed, but there is already no meaning to this battle.”
One of the heavy cavalrymen shouted and took the lead to flee. The ice plate armor on Wild Bear was all broken. Both of his eyes were bloodshot red when he laughed and said, “You wanna go?” Then, Wild Bear threw out his cut horse sword and it stabbed through the armor on the back of the heavy cavalryman.
