Chapter 415: Three Ancient Ones (Part Two)
At the bottom of the waterfall, a massive mausoleum showed its edge behind the frozen water. Like a frozen city, it revealed one of its golden outer walls. This was Nephalem, and it was also known as [Worldstone Keep]. Super boss Baal already entered it and was about to destroy the world, but the black iron gate blocked Fei’s path.
Fei’s eyes finally landed on the altar.
Several structures and statues were standing on the altar in a pattern, and images of Barbarians fighting with demons were engraved on them. An ancient aura enveloped the altar, making it look very holy and majestic.
Three human-like golden statues were standing on the altar.
Looking from afar, Fei could sense the powerful auras from these statues.
These statues were holding weapons like axes and swords, and they had angry expressions on their faces. On this mountain where almost everything was covered in snow, these three golden statues were shining brightly with no snow on them; it felt like they were still breathing.
Fei took a deep breath and stepped onto the altar.
Suddenly, an old and deep voice sounded on Mount Arreat.
“We are the spirits of the Nephalem, the Ancient Ones. We have been chosen to guard sacred Mt. Arreat, wherein the Worldstone rests. Few are worthy to stand in its presence; fewer still can comprehend its true purpose. Before you enter, you must defeat us.”
As soon as the speech was over, a golden light shone on the summit of Mount Arreat, and the golden light all concentrated onto the three statues. Gradually, the stone tone on them disappeared, and they opened their eyes; these three statues came to life.
They were the three Ancients – Talic the Defender, Madawc the Guardian, and Korlic the Protector.
As soon as the three statues came to life, red energy flames shot out of their eyes and enveloped Fei. The dominant sensation put a lot of pressure on Fei, and these three Ancients charged at Fei and Elena like ancient beasts who broke through the limitation of space and time; every time they stepped forward, the ground would crack open.
“Stand behind me!”
Fei shouted as he grabbed in the air. His Dual-Swords appeared in his hands, and he charged at the three Ancients with no fear.
The Ancient One named Korlic who used a colossal ax used the skill [Leap Attack] and struck at Fei first. When Fei crossed his swords and blocked this strike, his wrist numbed, and he was forced back multiple steps.
Korlic was knocked back as well.
“So much power!”
Fei was shocked.
Since he was training in the real world as well, his strength level was far beyond the balance in Diablo World. When he encountered the boss-level monsters before, he was able to dominate over them. But now, he felt like Korlic who was only one of the three bosses was on his level.
“The Ancient Ones are indeed the most powerful entities in this world!” before Fei could finish thinking, danger approached him again.
Air-piercing noises sounded, and a few throwing axes flew towards him as they circled in the air; they were so fast that Fei even smelled the body odor of the Grim Reaper.
It was the skill [Double Throw] used by the weakest Ancient One – Madawc.
Madawc was able to identify this opportunity in battle and strike right at the moment, and it made Fei feel very weird; he wanted to dodge it, but he felt like he couldn’t.
Tink! Tink! Tink! Tink!
It was Elena’s turn. She shot out multiple arrows, and they all accurately hit the axes in the air.
