The eight heads of Dantalion that were cut off had startled expressions.
The 16 eyes that fell to the ground observed the situation from different directions.
The Overgeared God, the hatchling, the great magician, the incarnation of the seven malignant saints, the archangel, the master of Keen Insight, the Demon Slayer, etc.
Those who were qualified to rule an era, or the world, were rushing toward him like hungry and irrational beasts seeing prey.
It is contrary to my expectations.
Dantalion was smart.
Based on the Overgeared Gods messengers, he inferred the purpose of the Overgeared God.
Beriaches revenge, the subjugation of the evil dragon, the war against Asgard...
Like the gods in the Genesis mythology, the Overgeared God was a person who carried many burdens on his shoulders.
It was to fulfill the wishes of the messengers and make them fully subordinate to him.
‘The Overgeared God is in a position where he must fight against hell.
It is normal to covet my knowledge.
So what was this situation The Overgeared God seemed to be lacking common sense.
It was very abnormal.
The eight heads that fell to the hot floor where lava flowed opened their mouths at the same time.
Do you really need to kill me Why cut off my heads Wouldnt it benefit you to cooperate with me rather than fight me””
Grid wondered, “On what basis”
“”Is it really necessary for me to explain My knowledge and strength will be a great help to you.””
“”Do you distrust me because Im a great demon I will become your messenger.
Then can you trust me””
“Not so much.” It was like talking to a dead body but Grid wasnt flustered.
He knew from the beginning that a great demon wouldnt die just because his head was cut off.
The Fire Dragon Sword was placed on Dantalions body and flames appeared.
The eight heads sighed as they watched their body being engulfed in flames.
Just because you are a god doesnt mean you are intelligent.
There are some indigenous people who can only howl like pigs.””
‘This guy talks too much.
Grid blatantly heard he wasnt smart and the agitated Grid used the five fusion sword dance.
He destroyed Dantalions heart and tore through all his viscera.
The shockwave fired from Nefelinas mouth and Brahams magic crushed Dantalions flesh and bones.
Zikfrectors runes prevented Dantalions recovery and Sariel and Mercedes cut off Dantalions limbs.
Yura fired from the sky from the large bean tree planted by Piaro and her bullets successively penetrated and destroyed the eight heads on the ground.
It was to block the regeneration of the heads.
Dantalion was thoroughly isolated.
No demons, demonkin or demonic creatures helped him.
They stayed inside the black crystal castle and simply watched as their master was dying.
‘Is there a concept of loyalty in hell
Most of them were forced to be loyal due to contracts so this was why more vigilance was needed.
The great demon and their subordinates were bound together by a common destiny.
If Dantalion died, the demons and demonkin who had a contract with Dantalion would die with him or their souls would degenerate.
It meant that they shouldnt just be watching.
‘It is strange.
Grids group felt a sense of strangeness but this wasnt a reason to stop attacking.
The offensive continued and Dantalion desperately resisted.
He replaced his lost vision with magic power, read and defended against attacks, and formed dozens of magic circles around his body to fight back.
Unlike Grid and Braham, who could use Magic Contemplation, and Nefelina, who was protected by her species absolute defense even if it was incomplete, the rest of the magicians were injured little by little.
However, the rate at which Dantalion died was much faster.
Dantalion started with his head cut off from a surprise attack and he consumed too much magic power.
He couldnt hold on and lost all his health.
A huge contribution was Yuras sniper shots where she didnt have to worry about being counterattacked.
It happened the moment when Dantalions body started to disperse into ashes.
[Time is regressing due to Dantalions power.]
Grid and Yura were shocked to see the system message.
Grids messengers grasped the situation a step later and clicked their tongue.
The ash was being returned to Dantalions body.
His cut off limbs were restored and the big and small wounds healed.
The eight heads that were destroyed and disappeared from Yuras sniper fire reappeared.
They flew back to his throat.
It was like watching a video being played in reverse.
Soon, the fully recovered Dantalion stepped back.
It wasnt until he returned to the location where he first appeared that Grids party noticed it.
Their location was also moved to the place where they had been standing a few minutes ago.
‘Is it back tracking
Should he try his weapon The passage of time normalized as Grid was seriously considering it.
“”For me, the future is history.””
Some people called itDantalions Book while Dantalion himself called it theBook of the Future. The book that Dantalion carried showed the future in exchange for some type of sacrifice.
It wasnt omnipotent because it couldnt specify the scope of the future but there was one fraudulent function.
It was the ability to make the present turn into the possibility ofwhat will happen in the future. He easily turned back time.
Of course, there were restrictions on this.
It was impossible to choose when to turn back time.
Even Dantalion considered it a great fortune that he could return to the point when the body was fine.
If he was unlucky, the time regression mightve gone to the point where his heads were cut off and the meaning of backtracking wouldve disappeared.
‘Besides, it costs a lot.
Dantalion felt great pain.
Among his eight heads, the heads of the young man and woman turned black and soon scattered as ash.
In doing so, he permanently lost a significant amount of knowledge.
Dantalion clicked his tongue and quickly turned around.
He intended to flee back to his castle.
Just then, a silver sword light flew toward Dantalions neck.
“What the hell isthe future is history” Grid came close and asked in an irritated voice.
Dantalion smacked his lips.
‘It is Shunpo.
This was the greatness of a god who rose through the process of transcendence.
‘This person isnt an ordinary god.
The moment he overcomes all the trials, his ranking will rise to the king of the gods.
Dantalion once again activated the Book of the Future.
The surprised Grid pulled out the Blessed Weapon Enhancement Stones.
It wasnt an ancient enhancement scroll but an enhancement stone.
[You have enhanced the 4 Blade Born from Enlightenment and Strong Desires.]
[The enhancement has failed and the enhancement value has decreased.]
Time went back once again.
Dantalion had four heads left and his expression distorted.
It was a situation where he had left his castle and it was just before his neck was cut.
He could see Grid standing 10 meters away.
Why was Grids expression even more distorted than his
Dantalion shouted, “”Think about the benefits of having me as a messenger!””
“Dont talk to me because Im in a bad mood now.”
Grid sighed as he checked his weapon.
Fortunately, it was restored to 4 by the time backtracking but he didnt feel good.
‘It failed too naturally...
By the way, it is clear that Dantalions time regression ability is definitely great.
It wasnt backtracking his own time but the time of the world itself.
Grid was certain that all the players currently connected were experiencing the time regression.
‘The reason why he didnt use this ability in the human world is because the penalty is too big.
The act of raiding the human world was a type of game for great demons.
None of them would be foolish enough to suffer damages while enjoying a game.
In that sense, the great demons who came to play and had their souls destroyed after meeting Ruby were idiots.
‘Two heads are the price in exchange for turning time back once...
He cant lose all his heads so there is only one chance left for him in the future.
Once again, Grid held the Falling Moon Sword.
It was because time had gone back to before Grid swung the Falling Moon Sword.
The time regression didnt apply only to Dantalion.
Countless conditions were needed for the time regression to be advantageous to Dantalion alone and this was obviously an area of luck.
“”Shit!”” Dantalion lost his composure.
He wanted to use Teleport to return to the castle but he felt Brahams gaze and pulled out his sword.
Brahams ability to control and counter magic in real time was the fundamental reason for Dantalions weakening.
“......!” Grids eyes widened as he was about to wield the Falling Moon Sword.
It was due to what he felt from Dantalion who was holding the sword.
Dantalions upper body leaned back and there was a sound like iron being scratched.
Some things unknowingly surfaced in Grids mind.
He was reminded of the information that Dantalion used the Sword Saints swordsmanship when attacking the human world.
The form of the swordsmanship that Biban used swept through his mind.
He remembered the moments when he fought with Kraugel, sometimes as an enemy and sometimes as an ally.
Grids body moved reflexively.
He forcefully twisted his muscles, put away the Falling Moon Sword and activated White Tigers Posture.
Simultaneously, Dantalions sword appeared like lightning and cut at Grids upper body.
It was a sword technique that must win in a battle of sword against sword.
It was the Sword Saints absurd move that unconditionally avoided the opponents sword while hitting the opponent with his own sword.
This blow collided with Grids armor, causing sparks.
[You have suffered 43,508 damage.]
[The effect of Dorans Ring has been activated.]
This was truly a great demon.
Dantalion couldnt destroy the armor made of Greed and Grids use of the White Tigers Posture greatly increased his defense, but he still dealt so much damage.
Dantalion didnt miss this chance.
He continuously used the Matchless Heart Technique that was the symbol of the Sword Saint and suppressed Grid.
Grid wanted him to be deeply absorbed in the situation so he waited for when Dantalion got a bit deeper.
It was just that Dantalions mental strength was higher than he imagined.
He suppressed his killing intent toward Grid who drove him this far and maintained the rightline. He moved forward and retreated, restraining himself from going too far when attacking Grid.
Meanwhile, Braham and Zikfrectors magic and Yuras sniping covered Grid.
However, Dantalion was implementing super sensitivity as well.
He evaded the pouring bullets with minimal movements and deflected Nefelinas shockwave with Sword Curtain.
Still, he couldnt completely absorb the impact and was shaken.
‘Now! Grid removed the White Tigers Posture and hit back.
Then blood gushed from Grids neck.
Dantalion avoided Grids sword and fought back by aiming for the small gap between his armor and his helmet.
‘This bastard is really the Sword Saint.
The frowning Grid was tense.
He knew that the next attack would come but Dantalions self-control was beyond imagination.
He ignored the chance to cause serious damage to Grid and retreated to broaden his vision.
It was as expected.
The shield flying from behind Grid was captured in Dantalions vision.
Mercedes shield that was blocked by Dantalions sword rose in the air and collided with the God Hands.
It was something that no one could deny.
At this moment, Dantalion was reenacting and was almost identical to the Sword Saint.
It wouldve been better to accept my suggestion.
Regret todays misjudgment for the rest of your life.”” Did he judge that it was over Dantalion placed the sword in his scabbard and lowered his upper body deeply.
It was obvious to anyone that it was a posture for drawing the sword.
“Your Majesty!!” Piaro felt Grids crisis and ran over while shouting.
Braham and Zikfrector wrapped defense magic around Grid.
Nefelina gathered her Breath.
The agitated Sariel showed signs of going berserk and Yura awas forced to prepare Hell Regulation.
Only two people were different.
Grid, who was the target of the attack and Mercedes who followed him werent worried about Grids safety.
The thing they had in common was that they had experienced the Matchless Heart Technique.
It was also directly through Biban, the founder of the Matchless Heart Technique.
The sword was pulled out of the sheath.
The sharp sword light that seemed to cut at Grids neck was stopped and sword energy released.
Dantalions body started to fly backwards at a tremendous speed, and he reached the gate of the castle in an instant.
He used the sword energy to escape.
Dantalion was making a pleased smile only for his eyes to widen.
It was because Grid was approaching right in front of him.
He pursued as if he had expected Dantalion to run away.
Dantalions neck was cut again.
Grid put away the Falling Moon Sword after the strike and combined the Fire Dragon Sword and Enlightenment Sword.
“You are too weak to be my messenger.”
Hopefully, either Leraje or Marie Rose would become his messenger.
Grid wasnt obsessed with Dantalion.
Knowledge The knowledge of Braham, Sticks, Nefelina and Zikfrector was enough.
They couldnt see the future but they were intellectuals who explored the truth in their respective fields.
In the first place, the future was a concept that could change at any time.
For Grid, it was better to seize Dantalions power than to use Dantalion as a subordinate.
He was convinced that he and the messengers could use the power much better.
Dantalion burst out angrily and once again backtracked time.
Thousands of demonkin and demonic creatures poured out of his castle.
The result was naturally terrible.
The timing of Dantalions time regression was for after they came out of the castle.
The number of demonkin and demonic creatures was meaningless.
The level 400 monsters were destroyed by the messengers wide-area magic.
In particular, Sariels activity was very dazzling.
Sariel, who was about to go berserk due to Grids crisis, stabilized her mind and released her power.
Dantalion sat down with only two heads remaining and murmured to himself.
If luck had come...””
“They are pathetic last words.” Grid ridiculed.
If he was in Dantalions position then he wouldve poured out curses like a waterfall.
