Chapter 1047: 1047
Noah didn't believe that they didn't invent a method to quicken the invasion . The fortress's defenses were automatic, and no one could deactivate them, but knowing their structure could make the armies' attacks more efficient .

The death of one of the leaders didn't affect the tide of magical beasts and hybrids . The invasion continued almost undisturbed since many defensive formations either fell apart under the attacks or deactivated on its own .

Only the automatic defenses remained in place and released a relentless series of attacks in the middle of the invading packs . The loyal forces knew that they couldn't stop the leaders with the few formations still active, so they focused on the weaker creatures .

As for the sixth rank leaders, the loyal forces could only hope that the fortress and Noah could kill them .

Beams of various elements and hundreds of puppets went after the weaker beasts while Noah shot in the sky toward the remaining Manatee . The Demonic Sword and Snore were still trying to stop its charge, but the powerful creature forced them into a passive position .

Noah's arrival reverted the situation . He executed the same tactic as before, with the only difference being that he ignored the body at that time and focused on its head .

He would have done the same before, but the presence of an ally so close to the beast made it troublesome for him to attack it in that exposed spot .

The Manatee opened its mouth, showing its short but sharp teeth right before Noah reached it . Yet, Snore coiled around its body and bit its mouth to interrupt its attack .

The fuming armor appeared around Noah once again, and he stabbed his clawed hands on the immobilized creature's eyes . The Manatee's skull became his handhold as he started to strike its mouth with his knees .

Corrosive smoke poured inside the hybrid's head while Noah turned its mouth into a bloody mess . Shards of teeth and bones shot out of the creature every time his knees crashed on its tissues, and the entirety of its lower maw soon vanished .

The Manatee couldn't even roar properly when the Demonic Sword flew under it and stabbed its brain from the wound . Corrosive smoke spread among one of its vital organs, destabilizing its balance and making its mind go dark .

The living weapon actions stopped the instincts' arrival, giving Noah enough time to crack the remaining skull open with his bare hands .

The last of the Giant Manatees disappeared from the sky as Noah stored its corpse inside his space-ring . His next targets were the Hydras, but some anxiety filled his mind when he saw that they had already reached the fortress .

The entirety of the fortress began to tremble at that point, and shining lines lit up on its surface . A humming sound also echoed in the environment and disturbed the leaders' concentration .

The experts had fused both worlds' inscription methods to create a building capable of fending off both cultivators and hybrids . Yet, the natives had always focused their expertise on fighting magical beasts, so the fortress was stronger against those carrying their features .

The leaders roared in anger as the humming noise continued, and the shining lines soon released a red halo that enveloped the entirety of the city .

Noah recognized that light . It had the same color and aura as the crystal on Angela's wand . Still, the fact that the rebels had also used that method meant that they knew a lot about it .

Both magical beasts and hybrids lowered their heads when the red halo illuminated the sky . Even the leaders couldn't resist its oppressing features .

Noah guessed that the red light would be able to hurt him too if he still was a complete hybrid, but his latest breakthrough had removed that weakness from his existence .

A series of large runes appeared on the fortress' surface while the noise and halo suppressed the armies . "Breath" gathered on those complex forms before thick whips shot out of them .

The whips were five meters thick and didn't seem to have a limit to their length . Pure red light made their structure . They shot after the leaders while they remained still .

Both Hydras and Octopuses released painful cries when the red whips entangled themselves on their bodies . Smoke came out of their skin as the corrosive properties of their red light affected those creatures .

Noah flew at high speed toward the Hydras even if the fortress's defenses seemed to have everything under control . Those formations could even stop a powerhouse in the end . He didn't expect anything less when it came to their favorite targets .

However, he couldn't shake off the feeling that the rebels had predicted that eventuality . After all, they would need months to cross the defenses, which was enough time to warn the main world's powerhouses and request help .

The rebels would have never decided to pursue that approach in those conditions . Noah believed that they had a way to quicken their charge toward the dimensional crack .

'I need to kill as many leaders as I can before they are ready to show all their cards,' Noah thought as he sprinted toward the first Hydra . Large cracks appeared under his feet, but the technique wasn't perfect at that time either .

The red whips restricted the Hydra and its seven heads, making it nothing more than a punching bag in Noah's presence . He landed directly on the first head and began to slash his way through its insides until its eyes lost every light .

Noah then shot toward the next one and repeated the process . He didn't even need to activate the Demonic Form to take care of creatures in that condition, but he did it anyway to accumulate corrosive smoke in the air .

The red whips let go of the creature when Noah destroyed its last head, and the creature's body ended in his space-ring while he turned to its ally . The other Hydra was in the same condition as the previous one, so Noah shot after it, planning to execute the same tactic .

Nevertheless, something flew out of one of the buildings in the city at that point and left a white trail while it reached the highest point on the battlefield .

Noah didn't feel any danger when it stared at that inscribed item, but his mind warned him that something was off .

The white trail dispersed as the item remained up in the air . A second of silence spread in the battlefield before the cylindrical weapon detonated and radiated a wave of white light that covered the entire city .

The light crossed every beast, cultivator, and hybrid in the area without hurting them . However, all the buildings and formations went dark at its passage . Even the defenses of the fortress stopped working .
