Chapter 1218: 1218
The Eight-armed Titan, the Snake, the Nine-headed Hydra, and the Phoenix were stronger than the Three-headed Dog, but they shared the same weakness .

Its healing ability rebuilt the body parts that required fewer efforts to fix before moving to the areas that had more inscriptions . That flaw allowed the invaders to suppress the puppets as soon as they were able to inflict serious damage .

Of course, the invaders had to approach every puppet differently . Noah would push his ambition to its fullest only once in the fights, so they had to inflict as many structural damages as possible with that attack .

The invaders decided to attack the Phoenix after defeating their first puppet . They wanted to take care of the weaker defenders before dealing with the stronger ones .

The Phoenix had an erratic battle style . It didn't require long periods of accumulation to launch its attacks, but it couldn't cover a large area with its offensive .

The creature launched giant fireballs through its wings, but it could only create four of them at the same time . The invaders had an easier time blocking them since they could join their forces to take care of that offensive whenever the Phoenix decided to attack .

Noah decided to cut away one of its wings since its offensive appeared to rely on them . His choice gave good results, and the Phoenix became unable to launch more than two fireballs at the same time after it lost that limb .

The invaders could apply the same tactic that had defeated the Dog at that point . The Phoenix didn't let them attack too often, but it couldn't stop them from inflicting damages to its body .

As long as the large injury created by Noah's slash remained, the damage inflicted by the invaders always surpassed what the golden flames could heal .

That was enough for the invaders . They only needed to keep attacking after their battle reached that situation . The puppet would eventually crumble if they continued to worsen its condition .

Third Prince and Second Princess appeared on the battlefield again while the invaders suppressed the Phoenix, but Noah and Great Elder Diana had predicted their arrival .

The two leaders shot toward the Royals when they stepped on the battlefield, but their assault didn't lead anywhere . Noah and Great Elder Diana could only force Third Prince and Second Princess to use a few defensive items to escape .

That outcome disappointed the two leaders, but their actions prevented the Royals from refilling the Phoenix's reserves of energy . That eventually allowed the invaders to destroy the puppet faster than the previous one .

That puppet gave off a stronger aura than the Nine-headed Hydra, but Noah strongly advised against focusing on the weaker target since it represented Second Prince's technique .

Noah didn't fear Second Prince's methods, but he wanted to clear as many territories as possible before being stuck into long battles . Restoring a stable foothold on the continent had to be his priority if he cared about his organization's power .

The Snake was different from the previous two targets . It didn't have a clear weak spot, and its body was too thick for Noah . He could sever it with the right angle and enough time to prepare, but he didn't know how freely the puppet would let him move .

Having only one head gave the Snake fewer spots to defend . It could focus all its flames on a magical beast's sensitive areas and made those who could come close to its power struggle to wound it .

Moreover, the puppet could launch waves of flames that filled large pieces of the sky without accumulating energy . The invaders had to prepare fire-resistant robes before the battle since the Snake was too dangerous to face without inscribed defensive items .

Noah attempted to cut its head a few times, but the Snake always managed to dodge or avoid his attack .

Golden flames would come out of its skin whenever Noah's blade became too close, and it could also perform evasive maneuvers whenever Noah managed to sprint past the fire .

In the end, Noah had to settle for cutting away a large chunk of its body and leave the head intact . That slowed down the invaders' advance, but they managed to destroy the puppet anyway, even if they had to attack it four times and with different battle tactics .

As for the Royals, Third Prince and Second Princess didn't show themselves while the invaders ripped the Snake into pieces . They feared what Noah and Great Elder Diana could do if they managed to capture them .

The last two puppets were both quite annoying . The higher-ups had tested their power while Noah was still inside his year of break from the invasion, and they couldn't understand which one was stronger .

The Eight-armed Titan wielded an incredible physical strength, and it could create massive swords with its flames . It didn't have any long-range attack, but it was a threatening foe already in its current form .

The Nine-headed Hydra had opposite abilities . Its physical might was on par with the Titan, but it could only launch long-range attacks . It was quite powerless when an enemy managed to slip past its flames .

Noah would typically choose to fight the Hydra since it appeared to be weak against his abilities, but he had to be wary of Second Prince . He didn't know if the puppet carried a trace of the Royals' prowess . Only King Elbas was aware of that .

The Matriarchs understood his concerns after Noah explained the situation to them . Second Prince was King Elbas' heir in the end . The puppet that depicted his technique had to be different from the others .

The leaders decided to put a hold on the battles against the puppets due to those doubts . Defeating the other three creatures had already opened the path for the conquest of half of the new continent . The invaders only had to deal with the defensive formations there to seize them .

The three organizations expanded on the northern side of the new continent . The various powerhouses led different attacks while Noah and the Matriarchs studied a viable offensive to defeat the two remaining puppets .

Years of battles went by, and the invaders slowly reached the eastern coast as their advance continued . The defensive formations on their path could only hinder their inevitable conquest of those areas .

The leaders let their organizations settle in their new domains before resuming the war . They wanted to jump back on the positive trend that they had abandoned when they escaped inside the separate dimension .

They were finally back into a prosperous land filled with resources . It didn't matter that the current new continent had already suffered from many wars . It was a paradise compared to the separate dimension .

As for the war, the Matriarchs eventually decided to listen to Noah's instincts . They would leave the Hydra as the last puppet and move their focus on the Titan for now .
