A large amount of experience points flowed in, causing the experience bar to increase significantly.
Ji Chen was feeling quite satisfied at the moment.
Although the battle came unexpectedly, it was still relatively safe.
Aside from many Naga warriors being injured by the tremendous force, there were no other losses.
It proved that his judgment was correct.
The three unit types he had painstakingly developed had transformed from weaklings to formidable forces, demonstrating outstanding combat prowess and untapped potential.
Not a single unit was a waste.
However, it was a pity that each of these unit types only had one recruitment camp, which prevented him from quickly increasing their production.
Otherwise, with seven or eight camps, he would soon have a powerful army that could dominate the seas.
“After exploring this area, I should go back and see if I_Love_Black_Stockings or other players on King Kong Island have these types of recruitment camp cores…”
Just as Ji Chen was thinking, a loud noise erupted from the ruins ahead.
It felt like an earthquake.
The continuous ruins were forcefully torn open, sending debris flying and raising a large cloud of dust.
Amidst the dust, flashes of red light kept appearing.
Numerous Ruins Guardians surged out of the ruins, and their numbers seemed to be in the tens of thousands.
Ji Chen’s expression finally changed.
Because he saw several translucent wolves-like creatures luring the larger group of Ruins Guardians.
At this moment, he finally understood that someone was scheming behind the scenes.
Amidst his shock and anger, Ji Chen did not lose his composure.
If such a large wave of Ruins Guardians were to rush up all at once, it would put immense pressure on their defense line.
So, they couldn’t confront them head-on.
“Everyone, quickly retreat into the gorge and use the terrain to kill the enemy.”
Upon hearing the command, all the units moved without hesitation.
They all retreated into the gorge.
“Naga warriors, stand in the front, and the rest focus on ranged attacks!”
“Alice, use the War Song to boost the units.”
“Benbo, lead the Dragon Blood Murlocs in a focused fire.”
A series of orders were given, and Ji Chen finally breathed a sigh of relief.
However, there was still some worry on his face.
The Naga warriors, who served as the front-line tanks, were not in good condition. After experiencing the previous battle, most of them were injured.
If they couldn’t hold the line, no matter how strong the backline damage dealers were, it would be in vain.
They were once again plunged into a bitter battle.
Outside the gorge, there was a densely packed group of Ruins Guardians numbering in the tens of thousands.
These large beings, each standing three meters tall, had blood-red eyes that seemed eager to devour them.
They continuously attacked the defense line.
Fifteen minutes passed, and Ji Chen’s worst fears came true.
Many Naga warriors were heavily injured and had to withdraw from the front line.
With fewer frontline tanks, the pressure on the backline increased.
Anina, looking at the defense line showing signs of collapse, was filled with concern.
She took the initiative and volunteered, saying, “My lord, let me go. 1 can hold them off.”
With things having come to this point, Ji Chen didn’t hesitate and agreed to her request.
“Seize the opportunity to attack, but be sure to protect yourself.”
Anina nodded and wielded her Dragon Slayer Great Sword as she walked to the front. Facing the Ruins Guardians surging like a tide, a hint of killing intent flashed in her eyes.
Taking a deep breath, her blood began to boil, and power surged from her body.
A majestic power derived from noble bloodline started to emanate, capable of rendering ordinary marine creatures powerless.
Unfortunately, the Ruins Guardians were alchemical constructs and couldn’t sense this power.
Anina moved, rushing into the midst of the enemy group like a bolt of lightning.
Facing the rampaging Ruins Guardians wielding stone fists, she didn’t choose to dodge but directly collided with them, clenching her left fist.
Her fair little fist was about to collide with the hard stone fist.
To ordinary people, this scene was like an egg smashing against a rock, where the egg would inevitably shatter before the rock.
But who was Anina?
No, she wasn’t a person but a whale.
How could the Ruins Guardians contend with a whale?
In the next moment, the Ruins Guardian’s fist shattered with a thunderous boom and shattered rocks filled the air.
The difference in power between them was evident.
With a clang, Anina swung her Great Sword fiercely, crushing their bodies.
In the midst of the Ruins Guardian group, Anina moved like a whale swimming in the sea, her body agile.
With each swing of her sword and each punch, a Ruins Guardian fell.
The efficiency of her kills was comparable to that of an army.
She gradually attracted the attention of most Ruins Guardians, reducing the pressure on the defense line.
Seeing Anina being surrounded on all sides, Ji Chen gave the order.
“Alice, empower Anina with the War Song.”
“The rest of the ranged units, seize the opportunity and give it your all!”
The song quietly sounded, reaching Anina’s ears and causing her spirit to tremble.
The already high fighting spirit became even more fervent under this enhancement.
Her body brimmed with boundless strength, and the speed of her sword swings and movements increased significantly.
Her killing efficiency further improved!
Every time a Ruins Guardian’s fist was about to hit her, she skillfully dodged it and counterattacked, severing its arm with a single sword strike.
With the blessing of the unit’s talent, each kill restored a considerable amount of her stamina.
However, upon closer observation, it could be seen that Anina’s combat power was slowly increasing over time.
From two strikes to one kill, gradually becoming one strike for one kill.
[Resurgence of Slaughter (Purple skill, increases combat power with battle time, up to a maximum of 50% boost in combat power)]
Under such terrifying killing efficiency, in just over ten minutes, the Ruins Guardians, which had appeared in a seemingly endless tide, began to thin out slightly.
As long as they could continue like this, resolving this wave of Ruins Guardians was only a matter of time.
Seeing this scene, Ji Chen couldn’t help but breathe a sigh of relief.
Little did he know, the mastermind behind the scenes was also astonished.
“Am I seeing things? Can one person hold back so many Ruins Guardians? They must be a hero, but even for a hero, this is too exaggerated. It’s like a perpetual motion machine…”
“This terrifying power might be a hero of Purple-Rare Tier or above. The one singing in the back should also be a hero, capable of providing powerful buffs to the units. 1 estimate they are at least Blue Excellent Tier.”
“And that Murloc hero leading the Tidal Sea Spirit’s military recruitment camp…”
Two members looked at Anina, who was dancing and dodging attacks within the Ruins Guardian group while efficiently killing them, as well as Alice behind her. Their faces were filled with envy.
On the other side, Sima Chuxi’s expression was incredibly dark, and his eyes were filled with anger and jealousy.
His mind was screaming madly.
“Damn it, damn it, damn it! How can this hero be so strong!?”
“This powerful hero should belong to me, shouldn’t it? I am supposed to be the protagonist of this world, of this game!”
After all his efforts, he only had one Blue Excellent-Tier and two Green Elite-Tier heroes.
Meanwhile, this man already had two Purple-Rare-Tier and one Blue Excellent-Tier heroes.
His heart brimmed with raging jealousy, a burning envy that sparked an insatiable thirst to end Ji Chen’s life.
Although they hadn’t met in person yet, the enmity between them had already been formed.
He must kill Ji Chen here and now.
But even thousands of Ruins Guardians couldn’t do anything to Ji Chen. How could he kill him?
“Where are the other Ruins Guardians?”
“There aren’t many left nearby, except for several hundred even stronger Ruins Guardians dormant in an underground space to the west.”
“But if we lure them out, we’ll have to retreat from here, or else we’ll be surrounded by these Ruins Guardians and unable to leave.”
Upon hearing this, Sima Chuxi hesitated only briefly before gritting his teeth and saying, “Lure them out, and then we’ll leave immediately.”
“After our strength is sufficient, we can come back here and deal with these troublesome Ruins Guardians.”
“But no matter what, we must kill that player today!”
