The orcs cheered with excitement as they penetrated the defense line of the humans. However, as they ran towards the direction of the sunset, the team of 33 knight brigades had already begun to increase their speed the team had reached their peak speed.
As the arrowhead of the knight brigade charging formation, the Knight of Saroya was at the very forefront. The Elite Knight, Bernard, and Elite Knight of Hopper closely followed behind.
The Knight of Saroya shouted "LOYALTY!"
A white glow of combat qi began to rush out from the body of the Knight of Saroya. Soon, all the knights who were following closely behind also began to unleash their combat qi.
The Knight of Saroya then shouted "HONOUR!"
This large amount of combat qi began to merge. Even the 30 lesser knights at the back were trying their best to unleash their combat qi.
More and more combat qi shifted from the back of the charging formation towards the forefront.
Now, a large amount of combat qi was concentrated on the bodies of the 3 Elite knights.
A combat qi armor that was exclusive to head commanders began to appear on their bodies
As the knight brigade continued to accelerate. The white color combat qi armor on the 3 elite's body knights had shone even brighter. At last, they had merged, forming an arrowhead.
The 30 lesser knights at the back continued to supply more and more combat qi towards the forefront. The arrowhead became bigger and bigger.
At last, a gigantic arrowhead had formed at the forefront of the charging formation, shielding the 33 knight brigades.
The Knight's charging formation were some of the most powerful force humans could create in this world. It congregated the spirit of knights. In order to achieve a knight charging formation, it required a minimum of 10 official knights. However, if more knights were in the formation, the more powerful it became.
The holy contention had a legend. It states that when the words, "Loyalty", "Honour", "Sacrifice", "Bravery", "Mercy", "Spirit", "Honesty" and "Justice" were collectively being said together, the knight brigades would become unstoppable.
As described by countless enemies, The only way to defeat a team of knights brigades in a charging formation was to wait for it to stop charging.
Actually, it was planned all along. Those warriors who were initially in a defensive formation to withstand the orcs. They were only there to create extra time for the knight brigade to complete their charging formation. Although the charging formation was very powerful, it could only be used in an actual battleground. Since the formation would often take a long time to complete if they've been spotted during the process. The enemy would gain enough time to plan a response.
"It's the knight charging formation. Run! Quick!" Fowler loudly warned the other orcs. His calmness completely vanished. He was frightened by the most powerful attacking formation of humans.
The orcs had already been slowed down by the human defense formation. There was no way they could escape this already formed knight charging formation. The giant arrow of combat qi rushed towards the frightened orcs, like a sickle about to harvest its crops.
"Protect the Lord!" Since the wolf riders were near the back end of their formation, they preserved most of their fighting power. They madly rushed towards the front, using their bare body to protect the escaping Lord Fowler.
Fowler had already lost 2 out of 9 personal wolf riders in the previous batter. The 7 that remained were closely guarding Fowler by his side.
"For the glory of the Woolf family!" A wolf rider roared as he directly rushed towards the knight brigades. Although is sacrifice had made no difference, there were still many wolf rider shouting, ATTACK!
"Go to hell, humans. One day, I will call my lead troops to kill you all". Fowler swore, but it couldn't change the reality.
The orcs were different from humans. For human royals, the oldest son would inherit the family's assets. While for the orcs. The most powerful son would be the inherence.
Fowler was the 6th son of the Woolf family. In order to gain a chance to inherit his family's assets, he had to work very hard. That's the reason he had decided to join this new member trial.
Every year, the orc empire sent a large number of young soldiers to the human world. If they could survive for more than three months, they would be awarded. The main reason was that the orcs were too good at reproducing, and the orc empire doesn't have enough resources to meet up the demands. Especially for these orc soldiers. Therefore not only could the orc empire gain more resources by sending these troops to steal, but they could also minimize their population. That's why "the trial of death" was created. Of course, it had a better sounding name "the new member trial".
There were two elite wolf riders beside Fowler. These elite orcs were an important asset of the orcs empire, and they would rarely appear in these new member trials. However, since they needed to ensure the safety of their lord, they had also traveled to the human world.
"Wooo..." an elite wolf rider viciously howled towards the sky. Under the influence of combat qi, his voice was clearly heard by a sky sparrow just flying above them. The driver of the sparrow understood the message. He knew that he need to pick up an orc that was very high status within the orc empire. It was commanded that no matter what happened, this orc had to return safely. The driver then lightly padded the neck of the sky sparrow. The sky sparrow then took a turn in the sky and began to lower itself to around 20 meters above the ground.
The two elite wolf riders tightly held on to Fowler's arms, one on each side. In a count of three, they unleashed all their combat qi and threw Fowler towards the sky.
"I will take good care of your families!" Said Fowler in mid-air to the two elite wolf rider on the ground. Soon the sky sparrow swooped from below, catching Fowler with its giant body.
Meanwhile, the knights charging formation was rushing directly towards the two elite wolf riders. The two wolf riders were flashing with intense combat qi. They felt gratified, at last. Their lord had been saved, and the Lord said he would take good care of their families. Everything was worth it.
Just like sand being swallowed up by a powerful wave, the great charging force of the knights had soon turned the two elites wolf rider into smoke of blood. Since the 2 elites wolf riders also possessed great power, they had an even more tragic death under the rebound power of the knight charging formation.
This scenery had frightened the sky sparrow which Fowler was on. It soon began to immediately accelerate towards the sky.
The Knight of Saroya realized that sky sparrow was still in reach, so he once again gathered knight brigades, and unleashed a beam of combat qi towards the sky. Although the sky sparrow could accelerate very fast, it was nothing compared to the speed of the knight brigade's beam of combat qi. Soon it had began caught up with the sky sparrow.
Fowler sensed that he was in danger once again. He took out a rune sign from his chest pocket and smashed it. The rune sign turned into a white shield. However, the beam of combat qi produced by the 33 knights was still too strong. After a while, it had penetrated Fowler's shield.
Although Fowler's shield could not stop the beam of combat qi completely, it still absorbed most of its energy. The beam only made a small cut on the sky sparrow's body and vanished.
The injured sky sparrow was traumatized. No matter how hard the driver tried to calm it down. It flocked around frantically and did not follow it's an initial path at all.
At the time, most of the sky sparrow drivers had realized that the orcs they were supposed to pick up were killed. Since their sky sparrows were also getting more and more irritated, they began to retrieve.
"Damn, we let him got away,'' the Knight of Saroya said with an annoyed tone.
That orcs must be very high status. All the wolf riders had gone crazy to protect him earlier, even 2 elite wolf riders had sacrificed themselves. Moreover, it was unusual for a sky sparrow to take a risk flying at such a low altitude. All of these things just add up, that orc must be someone extraordinary.
"Let's clean up the mess", said the Elite Knight of Bernard from the side.
We had killed 160 wolf riders with rank 6 and above, two of which were even elite wolf riders. The military service we achieved today was already very outstanding.
The 200 soldiers who were guiding the mouth of the valley had all been called back to clean up and give first aid to other injured soldiers.
No matter dead or alive. Let's chop off the heads of all the orcs. They represented our outstanding military service.
"Master, the result has been calculated", a lieutenant came out with a bandaged arm and said with a heavy tone. "Out of the 1000 warriors, other than the 200 who were guarding the valley mouth. We have 302 dead, 54 in critical condition, and 5 lightly injured."
"Ah, report it anyway. We'll give a part of the spoils of war to their families", the Knight of Saroyan helplessly said. People die in battles, this fact was unavoidable. These were all the bright soldiers that trained under the Knight of Saroya for many years, fighting against normal orcs should be a challenge. However, all the orcs in this battle were rank 6 and above. Since all they wanted to do was to penetrate our defense line, the result had to be like this
