Celestial Era: The Rise of the Full-Time Enhancer - 583 Ignacy
Ignacy, an expert in Space Magic, had assisted both Vera City and Nidite City in setting up formations with Space Elements.
It is unfortunate that only Ignacy was able to grasp this element or they could’ve made more protection related to space.
Nevertheless, with his help, they may not stop the creation of the gate but they could at least be warned and prepare some traps within one kilometer or so.
Beyond that, they only have formation arts that can detect the ripples of space.
“Indeed. It’s a good thing that we already have the capabilities of detecting their presence.” Shane added as he also knows the terror of this strategy.
They weren’t sure where the Black Magic Organization obtained this magical technique but if they would make a guess, it had come from the magic god they are worshipping.
“Do you think that you’ve prepared well for this battle?” Ignacy asked Lola, the owner of this land.
“I think that the Paragons are the real problems here. Based on the report, the Organization didn’t bring their main force… Perhaps, the warship is only meant to weaken our defenses… and the Martial Artists would be the ones causing havoc internally.” Lola paused to think for a moment before continuing…
“I believe that as long as our barrier held on until our sky support arrives, we’ll be able to win.”
Lola answered with confidence.
She was already informed about the Squad of Tempest 1. They are stationed from afar and will be mobilized at a crucial moment to obtain the best possible outcome with their combined strength.
As expected, the forces of the Black Magic Organization didn’t attack after a few days and waited for the arrival of the group of Martial Artists.
They planned to attack the city by combining their forces!
Nevertheless, the morale in Nidite City didn’t fall as Ignacy’s presence held them together… His words bring them courage and his actions give them hope.
On the fifth day, when the sky suddenly turned dark because of the thick dark clouds, the Paragons, and the Black Magic Organization finally made their moves.
The three flying iron warships flew above the Nidite City.
They were completely different from the wooden warships from before. The warships this time look more intimidating than before.
Perhaps, after the Black Magic Organization obtained key places with iron mines, they didn’t hesitate to use their large force to bring out tons of iron ores to make such a weapon of war.
The magicians and knights guarding the city wall can tell that low-level Mana Arts wouldn’t even scratch the monstrosity above them.
“Activate the Defense Formation!” Lola commanded as she looked at the flying warships. Their cannons are already pointed toward their city and they can’t do anything with them.
The warships are too high up in the sky and the range of their Mana Arts would reach it.
The city has cannons and other weapons as well but it’s also impossible to shoot down those warships.
Lola may have a couple of airships in her shipyard but those are only for transportation and not weapons of war…
‘I really want to capture that warship… Unfortunately, I have to destroy it.’ Lola regretfully thought as he looked above.
She doesn’t think that her city will be defeated by the warships sent by the Organization.
She has confidence in her forces but the problem is that capturing the warship without dealing damage to it is impossible… Their only method of destroying it was to bring it down. Yes, they’re planning to drop it from the sky and this warship would be completely useless after. At most, they can recycle the metal scraps later.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
Soon the bombardment of the warships started…
Numerous iron cannonballs were fired like fireworks coming from the sky.
At the same time, the barrier of the city was created above the city. It is a formation that Lola is extremely proud of. With the rich resources coming from the Sea Race, she was able to develop a Formation of Art that is stronger than the ones found in the Black Tower.
“Marvelous…” Shane commented as she looked at the mighty barrier protecting them.
“Unfortunately, we don’t have the ability to fire back… Should we call all the Grand Magus to attack together?” Brycen suggested.
Even if he’s a Grand Magus, he still has a limited number of Mana Arts he can use in this situation. It was the same for the others. However, if they worked together, they should be able to release a terrifying attack that could destroy the airship above them in an instant.
“There’s no need. Master Ignacy said that he’s willing to act.” Lola answered with a smile as the barrier continued to tremble from the bombardment of the enemies…
“Really? Master—” Brycen wanted to ask Ignacy but as soon as he looked on his side, he realized that Ignacy is already missing.
In a blink of an eye, Ignacy figure reappeared in the sky.
He’s capable of using a high-level Flight Technique!
The enemies seem to have noticed Ignacy’s presence and the people on board pointed their weapons at him.
The captain of the ship realized that the man was dangerous and even seem familiar… He didn’t hesitate to order the waiting soldiers to fire…
Soon, the brave man who dared to go near their warship was rained with Elemental Mana Arts and various projectiles…
“Hmph! Do you think we don’t know that magicians can fly?! You’re dead meat!” The Captain proudly declared as he smiled.
Since he knows that Grand Magus has a limited range of attack, about 300 to 500 meters depending on their strength, he knows that these magicians would fly closer to them to try and bring down their airship.
However, he had obviously prepared himself and had several Magicians waiting for a Grand Magus to pop out.
At this point, the smoke created by the focused bombardment dissipated…
The figure of the man is no more so he should’ve been turned into ashes by now.
The captain wanted to celebrate but a deep and coarse voice interrupted his words…
