Paragon of Sin

Chapter 763 - 758: Soldier Of War Victorious

onsciousness underground, hence why he had to keep one unchanged and could only change the other. He didn ’t think it would fully contribute to making the Legion Commander believe he had won far more than the cunning false disguise would. 

Sometimes, small details could ruin or amplify the effectiveness of any plan. This was just a little bit of luck on his part. 

Thud!

The body of the Legion Commander finally dropped to its knees, its stump of a neck leaking white-colored blood. The skeletal warhorse followed its master in its demise, bursting into flames and vanishing with a final woeful neigh. Wei Wuyin felt awed about the Battlefield. He knew that if this had been in the actual world, without all these absurd restrictions, forcing even Ascended to fight like just enhanced mortals, he wouldn ’t have been able to resist a single Ascended at the Soul of Mysticism Phase, let alone slay an Earthly Saint.

Beings of this level could lightly breathe on him in the Grand Cyclic Stellar Region and obliterate his entire existence. However, in the Nexus Battlefield, these insurmountable, invincible figures could be brought down by all sorts of ingenious methods and tactics. 

”Perhaps that ’s the purpose of the Battlefield, ” Wei Wuyin lifted his head and once again inhaled deeply. When he exhaled out, he felt his mind grow clearer. While an Earthly Saint was terrifying, and the Nexus Battlefield somewhat restricted cultivators to only the Demi-Mortal Lord Phase, then only by using these unique tactics, environmental advantages, and straight-up coordinating strikes, it was technically impossible to claim victory.

Well, war wasn ’t a matter of one versus one to begin with, so this made perfect sense. At times, the weaker side can claim victory through various means. In war, victory was never just decided by the strongest.

Boosh!

The Earthly Saint ’s body fell forward and crashed into the ground, utterly lifeless. 

Those observing were all in disbelief. The mortal had done it. He had taken down an Earthly Saint! They didn ’t know what happened, but the flying head engulfed by saber light detailed the conclusion of it all. 

The extremely aged Ascended Commander looked on with his dimly lit eyes, almost as if it revealed death itself. Yet as time passed, it gradually started to change. It became brighter. It became livelier. It reflected true happiness! 

”We-We ’re Free…We ’re free! WE ’RE FREE! ” An Ascended Commander that had been here for nearly five thousand years shouted with unfettered exhilaration, shouting in glee! They were all told that the condition to leave was either to obtain ten thousand War Souls, ten times the amount as those Soldiers of War, or challenge the Obelisk of War and become victorious! 

The former wasn ’t possible for them, because killing your subordinates without cause was grounds for immediate execution without exception. As for betraying a fellow Commander of War, the outcome was the same! They couldn ’t collect War Souls from Soldiers of Wars either nor kill their fellow Ascended! They weren ’t afforded such luxuries as friendly fire with their power. 

They weren ’t mortals. Mistakes were far harder to explain.

With all these unfair restrictions, albeit they were also fair, they were all trapped unless they decided to gather mortals to fight against 10,000 Ascended. Poison? Who hasn ’t thought of poison? But the 10,000 Ascended army had their own poison experts, so that wouldn ’t be effective to eliminate them all!

If they did it poorly, they might even sign their own death warrant. 

But now, with the Legion Commander ’s demise, they were free.

They were VICTORIOUS! 

The pure elation was unnatural, and hot tears streamed down the eyes of every last Commander of War. Truly, truly exceptional. 

Wei Wuyin could hear faint sobbing sounds and the exclamation of joy, his expression changing slightly as he sighed soon after. These individuals were idiots, absolute fools.

He waved his hand around, trying to call Guan Yu to arrive. Wei Wuyin could only hope Guan Yu wasn ’t slaughtered by accident. Without his guide, he would truly be a little lost.

Still, he felt his palm pulsate as the Mark of Annihilation throbbed. He knew that all he had to do was declare victory, and the war would end, especially since there was no Legion Commander to contest his claim.. The Obelisk of War and the right to observe it, including War Souls, all of it would be his spoils of war.
