The Magus Era - Chapter 358
Chapter 358: Arrow King
Translator: Law Editor: Hitesh
The arrow heavily clanged against Ji Hao's chest, causing countless fire sparkles to spray in all
directions. The arrow then shattered into ashes against Ji Hao's cloak, but a strangely fierce,
violent and cold stream of power, which seemed was compressed from numerous steel blades,
drilled right into Ji Hao's chest, madly surging around in his body.
The Gold Crow flame cloak tightly wrapped Ji Hao's entire body up. Except for his head, hands
and feet, the rest of his body was covered in the cloak. This cloak was a highly protective
treasure, crafted by Yu Yu himself, and was incredibly solid, almost impossible to be broken by
any outside force, just like this suddenly launched sharp arrow. The arrow exploded into ashes
against the cloak, failing even to leave a single sight mark on the cloak.
However, in order to motivate Ji Hao and prevent him from relying too much on tools or
weapons, Yu Yu had set a restraint for the cloak - this cloak could only provide the protection
for Ji Hao, with its available defensive power, which was exactly as same as Ji Hao's own
The arrow was shattered and the power contained in the arrow was partially neutralized by the
cloak, and the rest of the arrow power directly struck into Ji Hao's chest. That invisible, fierce
stream of power sliced Ji Hao's muscles, cut his meridians and broke his bones. Countless bone
fragments pierced into his internal organs.
Ji Hao howled out in this great pain. He felt like a thousand sharp daggers had been crazily
stirring inside his chest, and his chest had already been smashed completely.
Fortunately, his body had been strengthened and purified multiple times; added with that,
when he swallowed the Nine Dragon Fire Pearl and absorbed the power continued in it to
improve himself, he had also swallowed a mountain-huge pile of beast meat. By now, his body
condition could even be compared with new Magus Kings. Both the consistency of his spirit
blood, and the amount of life-force contained in his spirit blood, were now more than ahundred
times greater than ordinary Senior Magi.
While suffering the horrible pain that nearly made him faint, Ji Hao took a long and deep
breath. His spirit blood rose inside his body while boiling and surging, like a hundred roaring,
raging dragons. The fierce stream of arrow power had still been continuously damaging his
body, yet his own spirit blood now began ceaselessly healing.
Within a few seconds, Ji Hao's chest was completely crushed hundreds of times, and was healed
hundreds of times as well. Until the last bit of sword power was eliminated from his body,
thirty-percent of Ji Hao's spirit blood was already consumed.
Cold sweat gushing out of his forehead, Ji Hao turned to where that arrow came from, in an
A single shot had consumed thirty-percent of his spirit blood, which meant that he could, at
most, take three more shots like this. When his spirit blood was finally consumed up, he might
What was more astonishing was the fact that as the cloak had blocked the arrow for him, only a
part of the power managed to drill into Ji Hao's body. If this arrow was aimed at his head, which
wasn't protected by the cloak, he would have already died for good, with his head blasting out.
The Nine Dragon Fire Pearl swished out from between his brows, transformed into a bright
sphere of fiery light, speedily rotating around his head, which was a vital body part.
The Dragon Flame Sword roared out as well, in the form of a huge flame stream. Ji Hao gripped
the sword tightly while spreading his spirit power out towards every direction, covering the
area that had a radius of a-hundred-zhang. If the enemy sneakily launched any other attack, Ji
Hao would certainly know where the arrow came from, with it flying across the area that was
covered by his spirit power.
Ninety-nine small Gold Crows rose from the cloak and transformed into streams of golden-red
sword lights, hovering around Ji Hao's entire body. In addition to the fire pearl, these sword
light streams had knitted another firm and strong protective net.
Ji Hao then raised his hand and crooked his fingers towards Feng Xing, who was sent flying
away. Following his move, a gale instantly swooshed up from the ground, held Feng Xing up
and brought him back to Ji Hao. A huge hole was opened up in Feng Xing's chest at this
moment, and he had his teeth tightly gnashed, trying his best to manipulate his spirit blood,
and eliminate the remaining sword power near his wound, and heal the wound itself.
Ji Hao took out a big handful of dragon blood amber, given by the Red Wood Palace as
compensation. He didn't have any spare time to think about how wasteful it would be to
directly swallow such a treasure-level material, before he thrust the full handful of amber into
Feng Xing's mouth. Afterwards, he too swallowed tens of dragon-blood amber pieces in a row.
The dragon blood amber was a genuine treasure that was formed from actual, ancient dragon
spirit blood, nourished and purified in bottomless chasms for countless years. Dragon blood
amber continued immense life-force, which was originally possessed by real, ancient dragons.
Therefore, it could effectively replenish consumed spirit blood and strengthen human bodies.
After taken tens of dragon blood amber pieces, Ji Hao's consumed blood had recovered right
away. By now, the multicolored flames in his lower abdomen had surrounded the rest of dragon
blood amber, refining the amber into wisps of multicolored light streams, nourishing Ji Hao's
Ji Hao's body condition had been improving bit by bit. A second ago, Ji Hao could still sense the
pain caused by the arrow attack, which had nearly smashed his chest, but under the effect of the
dragon blood amber, that slight, remaining pain had gone very soon.
’’You trash! Who is hiding in the shadow and launching sneak attacks, get the hell out!’’ Ji Hao
shouted in a cold voice, ’’That arrow attack launched by you just now has already reached the
level of Magus King, hasn't it? As a Magus King, you launched a sneak attack at me, a little kid,
and failed to kill me... Don't you feel ashamed?’’
The power contained in the arrow managed to drill into Ji Hao's body and nearly kill him,
through the Gold Crow Flame Cloak. No Senior Magus could ever be powerful enough to do that.
It could only be a Magus King. Only a Magus King who had mastered archery could launch such
a powerful, fierce and violent, yet completely silent, traceless attack.
Ji Hao's spirit power, which had covered the surrounding area, began vibrating violently. Three
arrows silently flew out from the woods, which was over a hundred miles away from Ji Hao and
Feng Xing, directly towards Ji Hao's forehead, throat and heart...All vital body parts.
The enemy launched the second attack, aimed at all three deadly vital body parts of Ji Hao.
Without a doubt, this Magus King hiding in the darkness was attempting to kill Ji Hao.
If Ji Hao wasn't able to monitor the surrounding area with his spirit power, he could never
dodge the three arrows. Nevertheless, even though he had, indeed seen the moving-tracks of
the three arrows by using his spirit power, he could merely take a sideway step, before the three
arrows flew across a hundred miles and suddenly appeared right in front of his eyes.
Ji Hao took a sideway step. One arrow brushed against his temple while another one closely
flew past his neck, as for the last arrow which was aimed at his heart, was blocked by the Flame
Dragon Sword. For a fraction of a second, all Ji Hao could do was lift the sword and shield his
The arrow clanged against the sword along with a tremendous power. The Flame Dragon Sword
let out shrill roars. The humungous power dislocated Ji Hao's arms and suddenly pushed his
body backwards. Ji Hao forcibly froze his own feet in order to stop his body from moving
backwards. However, his body was still pushed back for around thirty-miles, and his pair of
feet deeply gullied the ground.
His finger bones, wrist bones, arm bones and shoulder bones were all shattered. The fierce
sword power went further into his internal organs and generated a heavy strike. A stream of
blood surged right up to his throat, but Ji Hao forcibly suppressed the intense feeling of
vomiting, and swallowed that huge mouthful of blood back down.
Mr Crow let out raging, resonant caws while swooshing up into the sky, hovering a circle then
diving down, towards where the arrows came from.
Ji Hao hurriedly grabbed Mr Crow's claws and forcibly pulled him down, while yelling, ’’Mr
Crow! No! You can't go! In the sky you're the perfect target!’’
The two magic fire snakes, which had shrunk their bodies into the chopstick size, silently
wriggled down to the ground, activated their special ability and nimbly drilled into the rock
ground, disappearing completely. These magic fire snakes normally lived in lava, therefore,
moving underground was their most basic ability.
’’You old trash! Get the hell out!’’ Ji Hao growled out once again, ’’You dared to sneak attack but
still are too timid to show your face?!’’
With spirit blood surging inside his body and the dragon blood amber quickly being digested, Ji
Hao's broken arm bones were quickly healing themselves. Bone fragments moved back
together, letting out silvery clangs from time to time.
A human silhouette flashed across the air. An especially handsome young man, who seemed to
be only around twenty, suddenly showed up on the small hill, three miles away in front of Ji
