With this combo, Zaine was able to lay down the hurt. She hardly ever used her Illusion passive skill since she and Roma were no longer wary of these monsters. 

Her attacks already dealt damage in the hundreds of thousands, and by abusing their elemental weakness, it was multiplied. How could these aquatic monsters survive? They were but fish on the chopping block. 

Of course, that wasn't all. After all, skills had cooldowns, so the best way to maintain combat capability and fluidity in Boundless was through one's own techniques. 

As such, Zaine threw out many Common Rank daggers that Hikari made this morning. Even though they were attributeless and at the Common Rank, their damage output was at the pinnacle of their tier due to Hikari's great skill and extensive knowledge of smithing thanks to Draco. 

As they were maneuvered by Zaine's telekinesis, they also had lightning coil around their forms. Even though her passive skill only gave a chance for lighting to manifest, Zaine was clever in manipulating it. 

What she did was to indirectly increase the chances of it manifesting by having Hikari manufacture these daggers with an extremely conductive metal. Obviously, such things would be important. 

Had Zaine used wooden daggers, for example, it should be pretty obvious that it would have a hard time manifesting any affinity with her lightning energy. With these highly conductive ones, the chance was significantly magnified. 

As such, when they went tearing through the bodies of these Rank 2 aquatic monsters, they quickly made mincemeat out of them, leaving only well-cooked slabs behind. 

As for Roma, she also tried out some of her new skills like Cruel Beast Summoning. This called forth a large wolf spirit and its red, evil eyes were fixated on the various monsters coming in. 

With a howl, it leaped into the fray and began tearing them apart with relish. Its teeth easily sunk in through scales, skin, and bones without caring for what sort of defense these monsters had, ripping out their flesh and innards for the world to see. 

The monsters subjected to this screamed and screeched in pain, further fueling the Cruel Beast's enjoyment. It would slowly and systemically carve out the monsters with its claws and teeth, making sure to inflict the highest amount of pain while keeping them as alive as possible to feel it. 

It was more than just a chilling sight, and definitely not something for the faint of heart to gaze upon. As for the monsters, they began to regret ever coming here. A nice and normal death would be fine, why the need to subject them to this much torture for? 

Roma didn't stop there though. She also cast some of her other new skills like Malevolent Spirit and Sinister Shot. 

Once the spirit entered its body, it began to cause extreme havoc by tearing apart its innards and drowning its mind with evil, negative hallucinations as well as thoughts. 

It took less than 2 seconds for the spirit to rend this monster into a dead rat, jumping out of its useless body and leaping into another nearby to have its fun once again. 

As for Sinister Shot, it was Roma's 'ult'. It dealt 500% Mystic Damage to one target and had a cooldown of one day. Since they were here to test their prowess, Roma made sure to use it on one of the Rank 2 Captain Rank monsters in this Field Zone that came later than their compatriots. 

The damage it dealt was 2,500,000! This meant that Roma's total practical Mystic Damage was currently roughly 500,000! This was higher than Zaine's mental damage and slightly lower than her lightning damage! 

However, the key difference between Roma and Zaine was that Zaine was a ranged damage dealer while Roma was a ranged crowd controller. As such, Roma didn't need to have high damage, but rather a variety of means to debuff, debilitate, and harass their foes. 

And looking at Roma's skills and Mystic Arts… well, Roma was the undisputed Queen of Crowd Control. Zaine, who also held the 2nd most damaging element in the world, Lightning, was also the perfect damage dealer. 

During all the fighting, Hikari was idle as she played with Loki and Rila. Roma and Zaine did not need her buffs or her healing, and she wanted to leave some of the Worldly Energy for Roma to use since the Mystic Channeler did not use mana, but manually converted the energy. 

Eva also watched with her arms crossed and her copyrighted resting bitch face. She did not bother to assist them, since they were the stars of the show today. 

Honestly, if Eva didn't need to be the one to create a party so that they could share experience, she wouldn't bother to follow them around. Not because she disdained them or anything, no. 

One could even say that Eva cared more for these beauties than their supposed 'man' Draco! That fellow went prancing about in all manner of quests while filling poor innocent beauties with his tainted seed, leaving beauties who could not be surpassed by any other at home to raise his kids! 

Fuck, heaven's tribulation, are your dogs eyes closed?! Can you not discern evil from good anymore? 

… or could it be Draco has fucked the heavenly tribulation too, forcing it to birth his vile spawn? That might explain a lot… 

Back to the matter at hand, Eva would not come out because she would be overshadowed by these beauties! She was only Rank 1, far from their match with their Rank ups. 

Even Draco who had a Divine Class would be suppressed by them unless he transformed into one of his forms. As such, Eva had nothing to do here but lead them around. 

Besides, they also needed to be the ones to do the fighting since they needed to understand their power growth as well as reinforce their mutual chemistry training. 

Right now, Eva was thinking about various means to reach 1 billion platinum for her own class. It made no sense to rely on Draco for this, as she was just as adept and talented as he was. 

She also had the same future knowledge, the only difference was that she hardly exploited hers in order not to overshadow her soulmate. He liked being high-profile and absorbing respect from the masses due to his harsh youth where he was abused and neglected by others. 

In her family and among those who knew her, Eva was always was a star among moons. She always gathered attention to the point where she despised it, opting to hide her face behind a veil to get peace of mind. 

As such, she and Draco branched out in terms of this particular aspect of their personalities. However, she also made a pledge not to be a burden, but a partner. 

So, she had to pull her own weight in terms of her own personal progression. Of course, no one who knew the facts would disdain Eva as it was obvious she spent most of her time doing what Draco should be doing, managing and training the members of the guild, and keeping his genealogy intact and running. 

As such, Draco had the free time and peace of mind to go here and there and develop on his prowess, whereas Eva had none of that luxury. Hence, the gap between her and Draco had widened further, and it would be hard to pull off shocking moves that could net her 1 billion platinum. 

This was her dilemma. 

Soon, the whole Field Zone was cleared out. Since the Witch Slaves were still going through their Rank up, Zaine handled the collection of the loot with her telekinesis. 

Just like Draco when he did so in his Dark Angel form, Zaine used her telesthesia to scan and identify the loot, separating them into different types. Of course, it took her far longer than Draco did as the Dark Angel form was at the pinnacle in this regard. 

Zaine chuckled. "Well, we got 345 Uncommon Materials, 35 Rare materials, 214 Uncommon items, 13 Rare items, 67 Uncommon weapons and armor, 18 Rare weapons and armor, and 1 Epic potion." 

Eva tapped her chin and spoke. "We'll sell it all then. I'll send it to Akainu for sorting." 

Zaine nodded and handed the stuff to Eva. As the Supreme Queens of the Morningstar Clan and Vita City-State, they had seen too much good stuff from Draco's hands and that of the others to even regard this loot as more than trash. 

Not to mention that Roma was an Ultima Sunt hybrid, meaning she bore their race's pride, Zaine was a Royal Devil, meaning that she had bathed in wealth from birth, and Hikari was from the old era Ancestral Dragon city, the number 1 in that world. What hadn't she seen before? 

Eva went to the center of the River's Dwell Field Zone and saw a small orb floating there. It was usually invisible to players and NPCs until certain conditions were met. 

When she reached out for it, a screen popped up before her. 

「System to Player Announcement 

This is the source deed of the River's Dwell area. If you claim it, this can be added to your list of personal properties as an Empress or added to the list of subsidiary zones belonging to Vita City-State as its co-founder. Accept? 

Y/N 」 

Eva chose to accept and added it under the list of subsidiary zones belonging to Vita City-State. There was no need to add it to her personal properties because Vita was the creation of her and Draco, a symbol of their love and willingness to be together no matter the universe or timeline. 

Once it was claimed, a new menu popped up for it to display the details of this newly claimed Field Zone, but Eva didn't bother to look at it since she had seen this many times in the previous timeline. 

Right now, what she did was summon Luxia over and tell the Light Phoenix to pick someone up for her. Luxia screeched in assent and disappeared with a streak of light, only a bright trail of light energy showing where the speedy Phoenix passed. 

After all, Luxia had felt Eva's bloodline before and knew that she was a true Goddess of Light so she hurried to fulfill her wishes. In about 3 seconds, Luxia returned with Bella on her back. The Light Phoenix gently dropped her off and stood beside Eva with a respectful expression. 

Bella was unaware that Eva wanted, but she stood before the Lady Boss with a subservient and worshipful expression. Out of all of Eva's 'little sisters' she was the one who revered the Celestial Beauty the most, due to her harsh personality and their mutual madness. 

As Cobra's twisted sister she had spent years sexually abusing her own little brother in order to 'train' him. However, it backfired and the fellow became terrified of women and began preferring boys. 

When he had finally grown a backbone and overcame his mental block, pushing his sister down and standing tall above her... something things became worse. 

It had awakened the true demon lying inside his sister's soul, and her desire was not quelled, but magnified. Now, the tables had turned in the relationship with Cobra being the superior and her being the underdog. 

Bella herself was quite a beauty, an especially sexy one. She was of the seductive type whose body posture, curves and mannerism incited not love, not the need to protect, but the urge to penetrate and subdue. 

However, her eyes were set on her younger brother only, a horrible thing in this day and age, and something especially sad because Cobra would never like her back after the abuse he had suffered and his current interest in men. 

Eva didn't care for the minor details of her obsession and the public's opinion of it, she simply had use for her skills as Bella and Cobra had both received the same training from their shadow-like family, making them the perfect rogue type players as they already lived the experience in real life.
