Chapter 957 Top Battle
Outside the ice mountain, the dazzling golden boundary pulsed violently before shrinking and exposing a tip of the ice mountain that was previously covered.
The two region teams waiting outside burst into cheers when they saw the boundary showing signs of collapsing.
"Is this a sign that the boundary will be broken?" Yi Qiushui asked in a surprised voice.
Yuan Kun looked at her and frowned. He hesitantly said: "I'm afraid not..."
“The golden light barrier is shrinking, but it is a controlled rhythmic contraction. "It's more dangerous now than before."
Yuan Kun's narrowed eyes suddenly flashed fiercely. "Jiu Gong has taken over!"
"Jiu Gong?" Yi Qiushui exclaimed. "Wasn't she controlling the limit before?"
“It should be Xue Jingtao who was controlling the limit before. Jiu Gong is extremely arrogant, so he must have thought that Zhou Yuan couldn't break through the golden light barrier and didn't intend to do anything at first.”
“But Zhou Yuan's skill clearly exceeded his expectations… it must have caused the signs of disorder in the golden light barrier that we sensed earlier. “If this had continued, the golden light boundary would undoubtedly have been destroyed.”
“So Jiu Gong couldn’t sit still and do nothing else. "She kicked Xu Jingtao, and now she is ready to fight Zhou Yuan herself."
Yuan Kun stroked his barely visible chin and said, “Although that woman is arrogant, she is indeed capable and decisive. As soon as he took control, he cut off the nodes that Zhou Yuan had destroyed. "This is similar to cutting off one's tail to survive, and is the reason why the golden light barrier shrank."
Although Yuan Kun was not a Genesis Rune expert, he was still ranked eighth on the Divine Dwelling List and had extraordinary insight. Therefore, he quickly identified the changes that were occurring within the boundary.
“I see…” Yi Qiushui nodded in understanding. "But now that Zhou Yuan has destroyed several border nodes, can he still reverse the situation by taking over?"
Yuan Kun sighed. “The boundary of the golden meridian light is divided into two layers, the inner and the outer. What Xue Jingtao controlled was only the outer layer, but Jiu Gong now abandoned the outer layer and shrank the inner layer. In terms of danger, it's more complicated now than before."
The limit of golden light was gradually shrinking and stabilizing as it became more dazzling. Looking at him, Yuan Kun became solemn.
"It will become troublesome."
Within the limit of golden light.
Zhou Yuan similarly felt the golden light barrier shrink. He narrowed his eyes and let out a sigh. "What a difficult opponent."
The decisive abandonment of his opponent's outer layer made it impossible for him to continue attacking.
The nodes he had destroyed were like dead tissue in a person's body, and now that Jiu Gong had cleanly cut away the dead tissue, it could no longer infect the body.
Furthermore, as the area shrank, the boundary's defenses became stronger and it would not be as easy to destroy the remaining nodes. After all, Jiu Gong was not the same as Xue Jingtao, and his limit control could be described as perfect.
Regardless of the difficulty, there was no way Zhou Yuan would give up.
Zhou Yuan closed his eyes and expanded his Spirit perception to examine the many Genesis Runes flowing from the boundary. He then sent out a series of orders.
“Team 4, step forward two hundred feet and then move three hundred feet to the right and attack the northwest area.”
“Team 8, move one hundred feet to the left and attack the southern area.”
"Team 3 ..."
Under the command of Zhou Yuan, the teams quickly moved to the positions Zhou Yuan directed them to and launched an attack.
At the same time, on the top of the mountain, Jiu Gong's eyes were fixed on the light screen in front of her. His mouth suddenly opened slightly, and a clear voice came out, “The ninth node, strengthen the defense.”
“The thirteenth node, manipulate the golden light to attack the team in the southwest .”
“The fifteenth node, attack towards the north.”
Under his command, the border nodes immediately began to operate, whether attacking, defending or hiding...
Zhou Yuan wanted to attack and destroy the nodes, but Jiu Gong's quick defense created an illusion that prevented Zhou Yuan from determining the location of the nodes.
Although the two sides had not met, they were already competing fiercely.
Frenzied Genesis Qi was constantly erupting within the boundary.
Zhou Yuan was aware of Jiu Gong's obstruction because he had only managed to find two royal nodes and destroy them during this period of time, even if he had identified ten locations.
Therefore, eight locations were illusions that Jiu Gong had sent to deceive Zhou Yuan.
And in those places, Jiu Gong had gathered a powerful golden light to destroy Zhou Yuan's equipment. If Zhou Yuan had not reacted in time and retreated, his teams would have suffered serious injuries.
The speed at which his teams advanced and destroyed nodes was frustratingly slower than before.
But Zhou Yuan did not feel anxious. He already knew that Jiu Gong was much more skilled than Xue Jingtao. Given his Genesis Rune mastery and his advantageous position within the boundary, it was already a pretty good result for him to destroy two nodes.
He just needed to move forward with a firm step and not get impatient. Otherwise, you could easily fall into their trap.
Therefore, Zhou Yuan began to slow down. He deduced and carefully observed the subtle changes within the boundary before moving forward.
For the next hour, Zhou Yuan and Jiu Gong repeatedly fought for several rounds, but the outcome of the battle still remained undecided. As the nodes continued to break, Zhou Yuan's team also suffered significant damage, and some were eliminated from Fallen Abyss after suffering from the impact of the limit.
But overall, as Zhou Yuan occupied more and more nodes, the situation seemed to lean towards his side.
Outside the ice mountain, Yuan Kun and Yi Qiushui could feel the boundary weakening little by little.
Yuan Kun didn't say a word. Although that seemed to be the case, he possessed a keen sense like a Genesis beast, so when the situation seemed to lean towards Zhou Yuan's side, he felt a little uncomfortable. He knew that Jiu Gong was very difficult to deal with. And he knew it very well.
Is Jiu Gong really unable to resist his attacks?
On the top of the ice mountain, Jiu Gong had a solemn expression as he looked at the darkening nodes, but there was no hint of panic on his face.
An urgent voice suddenly sounded, "Senior Sister Jiu Gong, the twelfth node has been destroyed!"
Jiu Gong's eyes flashed fiercely. He straightened his back and stared at a certain spot on the light screen. Her red lips suddenly curved upwards and her clear voice rang out: “Zhou Yuan, you are impressive for making so many holes in my Golden Meridian Light Boundary…”
“But you must not forget that there is a saying... one will suffer for his own intrigue!”
"Now that you're in, don't even think about leaving!"
Jiu Gong held a Genesis Rune brush in his slender hand, and its tip pierced through the void like lightning, forming a series of ancient Genesis Runes. They jumped into the sky and integrated into the boundary.
When they merged with the boundary, a spot of light in the depths of the light screen became brighter.
With a ferocious gleam in her eyes, Jiu Gong looked terrifying as she whispered to herself, “Zhou Yuan, since you were able to force my Golden Meridian Light Boundary to this point, I must admit that your ability is remarkable, but unfortunately for you , will be the one who wins in the end!”
"Golden Meridian Lightning, escape!"
A violent voice echoed throughout the boundary and an aura of destruction quickly rose.
Outside the limit, Yuan Kun's face turned pale. The wave of energy that surged from the boundary sent a chill down his spine. He realized that this was Jiu Gong's final attack!
She took enemies to the depths of the limit to defeat them with a single blow!
