Abe the Wizard - Chapter 1187 - Bound
Chapter 1187: Bound
After 2 more battles, Abel saw a patch of light in front of him.
Although there were the external flames of hell flickering all over the Chaos Sanctuary, what was in front seemed even more spooky.
Abel felt his heart drop. He knew what he was about to face, but it was his destination. So he carefully kept making his way forward.
It was the center of the Chaos Sanctuary. The glow was coming from the lack of lava which had a giant pentagram on top.
There were no hell creatures around. They seemed scared of this area.
Abel knew where he was, of course. It was where the Diablo was hidden. If Abel ignited the Pentagram, it would be summoned.
The Diablo was the most powerful Hell Creature he encountered so far, and he only gained the confidence to face it after his crazy level-ups as a rank 22 wizard with countless powerful summons as support and his angel body.
However, summoning the Diablo was no simple process. He had to ignite the 3 magic circles beside it and kill all the hell creatures first.
Abel did not hesitate. He walked towards the giant magic circle on the far left.
Immediately, hundreds of Oblivion knights, Doom Knights, and Venom Lords charged Abel. This time, he took it safe and directly cast a Bone Wall to stop them.
He stopped his summons and unleashed a spell attack on those hell creatures with Frankenstein and the 12 spirit guardian wizards.
Mad knight Bruce ignited the Holy Freeze, and all the hell creatures were slowed down.
Legendary Knight Wale also unleashed his ‘fate,’ and the resistance of the hell creatures immediately dropped.
Abel was utilizing the terrain. His tactic was to block the little passage those hell creatures were coming out of.
As long as his bone wall could sustain, those hell creatures had no chance.
When the first hell creature dropped dead, Abel unleashed a corpse explosion. Flesh and blood were blasted into the sky, and the fiery shockwave made even more hell creatures drop dead.
Abel loved it when the hell creatures without long-range attacks gather in a tight spot. It saved him a lot of time, and he could fully gather his power with Frankenstein and the spirit guardian wizards.
Finally, all the hell creatures were dead. But still, he still kept his eyes out as he made his way forward.
It was at that moment. He felt a sense of hunger. He couldn’t help but give out a bitter smile. He had been battling for hours on end for a day.
Since there was no sunlight in the Chaos Sanctuary, the passage of time seemed almost unnoticeable.
After all these years, he was experienced with hell creatures, and he knew what the best method of dealing with each type was.
The scariest thing about hell creatures was defense, especially the close-range attack types such as the Oblivion Knights. Each of them took a long time to kill.
Even with the exploding corpse, Abel was in it for a long ride.
He took out a battle of hunger potion, and he was ready for the next 10 days once again.
However, seeing how the battle was progressing, Abel decided to take a break. More important than killing hell creatures was resting and training, so he returned to head back to the Rogue Encampment.
He was about to level up as a wizard, and his angel body was growing by the day.
He took out a scroll of the town portal and arrived at the Pandemonium Fort. Though it’s short distance teleportation circle, he returned to the Rogue Encampment.
It was almost nighttime—time for meditation for his human body and sword training for his angel body.
Afterward, his human body took a rest as his angel body continued to train through the night.
Early next morning, his angel body to his human body before he woke up.
It was another day of lonesome batting and training. It was the sacrifice of success that no one in the Central Continent knew about Abel.
After all, he was walking on the edge of life when everyone else was sleeping.
Abel arrived at the side of a river and washed away the dread before resuming his battle in the Chaos Sanctuary.
The murderous scent remained, and it would not go away unless he killed every hell creature there.
It was not a pleasant smell with a ground full of dead bodies, but there was a strand of holiness to the place under the flicker of light penetrated from the giant crystal window.
Of course, Abel only had time to admire the scenery since he killed so many hell creatures along the way.
He took a deep breath and summed his summons once again. The following battle would not be easy.
He did not immediately ignite the other giant pentagram in the center of the Chaos Sanctuary. Instead, he commanded his Grey bear, Mad knight Bruce, and Legendary knight Wale to block in front of him.
The spirit guardian knights formed the second line of defense while the spell caster stood far from the back.
When their formation was set, Abel reached his power of will forward.
As soon as it was connected with the first summoning magic circle of the pentagram, a red glow emerged with a strange magic pattern.
He then turned to the second summoning magic circle, but before the other strange pattern even emerged, a red light flashed, and a group of Venom lords was dashing towards him.
They were extremely fast, and there was a Dark-Gold level Venom Lord on the lead.
But Abel was prepared. Mad knight Bruce immediately unleashed a Holy Freeze and slowed them down.
Abel then followed up with an aging curse to slow them down even more.
Legendary knight Wale, on the other hand, unleashed his support aura and charged into those Venom Lords. Since they could only do fire attacks, they could do much to Legendary Knight Wale.
Of course, that was only because there were no other types of hell creatures around, and they were drastically impacted by the Holy Freeze and Aging Curse.
Still, Abel didn’t want Knight Wale to take a risk. A white light flashed, and his angel body appeared in front of the Dark Gold Venom Lord with a sword.
His target was set, and a powerful strike was unleashed. However, it was not enough to kill a dark gold hell creature in an instant. All it did was knock it back for a few steps.
But still, it created an opening for the following attacks.
Abel’s angel body kept knocking it back as it tried to spill out its most powerful flame attack, but the Holy Freeze and Aging curse got the best of it.
Abel’s angel body increased his speed, and his sword almost turned into a wave of silver. The venom lord was helpless—all it could do was take the attack as it came.
The true power of the angel body was on full display, which was never shown against weaklings.
Abel’s sword training was also paying off. His wings already did wonders to his speed, and it only doubled with his angel sword.
The other Venom lords wanted to help, but they were stopped by Knight Wale.
Finally, countless cuts emerged on the body of that Venom Lord, and its scream grew weaker and weaker.
It was at that moment, Abel stopped his angel body and flashed behind the Venom Lord with his human body with chains of lightning in his hands.
In a few breaths, 10 lightning strikes landed on the Venom Lord, and it dropped dead with a final scream.
A grey soul then flew out and entered the Horadric cube on Abel’s left arm.
It was the reason why Abel couldn’t let his angel body finish its attack and burn up the soul with it. The soul of a dark gold boss was too good to go to waste, each of them was basically an ability potion.
It was a shame, such a powerful Dark Gold servant of the Diablo didn’t even get to unleash a strike before it was taken down by Abel.
With their Dark Gold leader dead, the following hell creatures had no chance.
Abel’s angel body did not keep going. Instead, he turned to the special grey belt on the dead Dark Gold venom Lord.
It was sparkling in gold, unlike anything else.
A flash emerged from Abel’s hand, and he snatched the belt with telekinesis.
In an instant, his world stone identified the name of this belt.
Razortail. It was a sharkskin belt with a silver buckle. It looked simple, but its vintage texture and golden glow gave out an extraordinary feel.
