The sanctuary was a measure that distinguished between a high or low god.
The stronger the god, the more powerful their divinity and the more independent the realm that was built.
Being independent made it hard to approach.
‘This is the sanctuary of the Overgeared God.
The angels were accustomed to the sanctuary of the goddess.
Even with fighting against the expelled gods or suppressing the rebellion of the seven malignant saints, the angels fought with protection in the goddess sanctuary.
It meant she had a high discerning eye.
Gabriel easily grasped and evaluated the Overgeared Gods sanctuary.
It was a canyon of steel.
The steel that melted in the heat spreading from the Overgeared Gods heart made hundreds of armor and overlaid them on the Overgeared God.
Attacks could be absorbed without damage.
It was a space optimized for the concept of protection.
It was a sanctuary that reflected the tendencies of the Overgeared God who protected humanity.
If it was Raphael, they wouldve ridiculed and belittled it for being the domain of a coward, but… Gabriel couldnt smile at all.
‘It is a noble mental world.
The canyon of steel was high and serene.
The steel that formed the canyon was cold and the heat that melted the steel was hot.
The scene was like the tip of hell.
However, Gabriel got a glimpse into the essence behind the landscape.
Humanity had faced all types of monsters, demons, angels, and even gods and dragons.
So far, countless beings had plunged the surface into crisis and every time, the Overgeared God had saved it.
The high canyon was the Overgeared Gods desire to be the fence that guarded the land and the numerous armors that sprang up in the canyon was the embodiment of the Overgeared Gods achievements.
‘A true god.
Gabriels gaze shifted to Grid, Garion, and Debirion, who was wandering behind them.
They might be weak, but their character alone resembled the goddess.
It was unfortunate that she had to kill them.
This sentiment didnt lead to the desire to help them.
Gabriels heart had long cooled down.
It was too cold to have any aspirations.
“It is very good for a sanctuary that you have just earned.
However, there is a limit to the power of simply defending.”
The Overgeared God had been fighting enemies stronger than him.
Above all else, surviving mustve been the top priority.
It was easy to understand the nature of the sanctuary that was specialized in defense.
There was just no end if he kept simply defending.
The way to achieve true victory and end the fight was to destroy the enemy.
It meant that attacking was a higher concept than defense.
It wouldve been perfect if it was as omnipotent as the goddess sanctuary, but it was unlikely that the Overgeared God, who had just been born, could create such a sanctuary.
“Lets see how long you can hold out.”
Gabriel retrieved the spear that she had thrown.
She held it in her hand, not with her fingers.
This spear was her symbol.
It formed a single body and moved freely even without her touching it.
The intention of her fingers alone shook the sky and the earth.
If she held it in her hand and wielded it, the world might perish.
However, now she had no hesitation.
It was okay to destroy this place because it was the Overgeared Gods sanctuary, not reality.
A surge of shockwaves from Gabriel shook the entire canyon.
The golden armor and spear she was armed with exploded a bright light in accordance with her will.
They were the armor and spear bestowed by the goddess in the beginning.
They were Gabriels symbols that had been with her since birth.
In the shaky world, Garion became contemplative.
She was amazed by Gabriels power to shake up the entire sanctuary.
She recognized that Grids divinity would fall significantly if the sanctuary collapsed and tried to persuade him, “There is no need to have a power struggle with Gabriel, who is going her best.
First of all, I think it is better to take back the sanctuary and step down.”
Just block one attack and there would be a chance.
No matter how strong Gabriel was, the aftermath would be great if she used that much power on the surface.
Perhaps the duration of the trinity would end soon.
Garion thought this, but her opinion wasnt adopted by Grid.
The flow of the battle was fast.
Gabriel had already arrived in front of him.
The spear blade that rotated like a wheel was fierce.
A gold glow was dispersed dizzyingly and the spaces that were touched by the particles of light dissolved in vain.
There was a hole in the sanctuary.
Gabriels spear, armor, will, actions, and very existence destroyed the Overgeared Gods sanctuary in real time.
The spear blade that was right in front of her was projected into Garions large eyes.
Garion sensed annihilation and grasped Grids cloak.
She pulled Grid toward him and pushed herself forward.
It was a desperate effort to save at least Grid.
It was just that she hadnt recovered the strength she had lost.
She was too weak.
She did her best, but Grids body didnt budge.
“Ah…” Garions mind went blank.
It wasnt her own death that made her despair.
It was Grids pain that she would have to witness before she died.
She had experienced how much pain the energy of a god killer could cause.
It broke her heart to think that Grid would suffer the same pain as herself.
Garions eyes widened.
It was because Gabriels face, which was enlarged as she got closer, crumpled up like a piece of paper.
The astonishment that filled the indifferent eyes was unfamiliar.
Garion understood the situation one step late.
Gabriel was covered in a thin white cloth.
Her armor, which she had proudly armed herself with just now, was taken off and she revealed her half naked body.
Before Garion could properly question it, she saw Gabriels spear soaring high.
It was as if the spear was rejecting Gabriel.
Contrary to Gabriels will as she gave strength to her hands to the point where they turned white, the spear slipped out of her hand uncontrollably.
It was just before she reached Grid.
Gabriel faced a situation where she met Grid with all her equipment removed.
She looked like she was swinging her fist in the air.
There was no way to explain the scene other thanfull of gaps.
Grids cloak, which hadnt moved despite Garion holding it with all his might, soared up backwards.
The orange light, which suddenly spread like a veil, was restoring the damaged sanctuary in real time.
During the time when he performed the sword dances with two swords, Grid mostly wielded Gujels Dao first.
It was to use the characteristics of the dao, which used drawing the sword as an advantage.
Most of the enemies werent able to respond to the tremendous acceleration.
Grid was currently level 700.
His stats had reached the seventh awakening, so he was several times stronger than when he fought Zeratul.
However, Gabriel dodged Grids first attack.
The light that spread around her seemed to replace her senses.
It was obviously a superior version of the artificial senses favored by Grid.
‘It is great.
Grid naturally admired it.
Gabriels ability to react to a surprise attack while disarmed was that great.
It was an opportunity to once again realize the skills of the absolutes that he would have to deal with in the future.
‘It is okay.
Grid wasnt daunted.
He felt the presence of Garion and Debirion standing behind him.
Apostles and human gods—he also had many colleagues who would soon become absolutes.
It was also reassuring that the Overgeared members in hell were becoming stronger.
They would be of great help in the future if they became legends or transcendents.
A roar spread.
It was the aftermath of Cranbels Horn being fired.
Gabriel was tangled up with the Formless Sword and also reacted to Gujels Dao combined with the Fire Dragon Sword.
Therefore, she failed to avoid the attack properly.
It was before she recovered the mental energy she poured out when avoiding Gujels Dao.
Grid recognized Gabriels situation as she was stabbed by a sword bent at a strange angle and stretched out the thumb of his left hand.
He gripped the handle of Gujels Dao in a shorter manner.
“Drop Dragon Pinnacle Linked Kill Wave.”
Grid used Shunpo to move above Gabriel, whose balance had collapsed, and descended vertically.
He pulled Gujels Dao, which he was holding with a short grip, toward his chest.
At the same time, he pushed Cranbels Horn forward.
The dragons movement that he used to penetrate through Gabriels light showed a certain vision to Gabriel, who was already confused.
A dragons descent—it was a sight created by combining the sword dance and Cranbels Horn.
‘I will lose if I get hit.
Gabriel immediately judged.
Her lost spear and empty hands helped her make a quick judgment.
She was robbed of her weapon, a weapon that she had been with all her life It was ridiculous.
Gabriel used Shunpo.
Even so, her body remained motionless like it was nailed in place.
It was due to the wavelength of power generated by Grids six fusion sword dance.
A vast energy was pulling at the surroundings like a black hole.
Gabriel was startled and looked into Grids eyes.
There was no ecstasy or anger in the eyes that looked at her who was in a crisis.
His eyes looked like he was encountering something insignificant and Gabriel laughed in vain.
Unable to be resisted.
It was an emotion she felt only when facing the gods of the beginning, the old dragons, and the only one god, Chiyou.
This was the surface, not heaven, it was because of the loss of her weapon or armor, and other excuses, but even without these causes, Gabriel wouldve admired Grid.
The appearance of Grid as he reproduced a dragons momentum and personality was a threat in itself.
At the same time, there was the sound of bells as if responding to this sentiment.
A chill went down Gabriels spine.
There was a great ripple in her heart, which had been still even in the face of a crisis.
It was because she felt that Chiyous obsession with Grid was greater than the rumors.
Had Chiyou ever shown such a great obsession with someone Could it be that he believed the Overgeared would become a complete god killer It was a law of the world that a god couldnt be a complete god killer.
So what was the basis for this
‘…I have to win.
It was after noticing that the odds were low.
Gabriel, who was about to retreat to find a suitable opportunity, changed her mind.
She recalled Chiyous personality.
From the beginning of time, he didnt know how to tell a lie.
He wasnt insignificant enough to become senile.
The fact that he marked the Overgeared God asa being who can kill me, or a god killer in other words, meant that the Overgeared God was fully qualified.
Therefore, Gabriel felt a sense of duty that she shouldnt be defeated.
She didnt dodge the Overgeared Gods sword attack, which raged like a storm, and instead faced it.
She surrounded herself with divinity as armor and blocked the sword of the Overgeared God.
At the same time, she fired her divinity as a spear.
The wounds on her body rapidly increased while the armor around the Overgeared God started to be smashed mercilessly.
It was the determination to make it mutual destruction.
Gabriels resistance was fierce as she was determined to lose their status together rather than suffer a one-sided attack and increase the status of the Overgeared God.
Even so, Grid didnt stop dancing.
On the contrary, he increased his momentum and continued the development of the six fusion sword dance.
It didnt matter how great Gabriels willpower and strength were.
It had nothing to do with Grid.
It would just build up the basis for Grids victory unless the opponent had the means to neutralize or offset the Sanctuary of Metal.
Gabriels fierce resistance stopped like it had been a lie.
The spear that had been lost earlier—it was the aftermath of being stabbed in the back by something that was like a part of herself and suffering devastating damage.
‘Why is this…
Gabriels face turned white as she hurriedly dodged the spear wielded by the black-gold hand floating alone.
Eventually, the sanctuary made a difference.
Armor that was crushed at most.
The fragments of armor that the Overgeared God was wearing changed into hundreds of weapons in response to the divinity of the sanctuary.
The number was too high and it was too strong to endure at the same time as she fully took on the Overgeared Gods sword dance.
Gabriel laughed in vain.
The sanctuary of the Overgeared God that she thought was simply specialized in defense—the more she experienced it, the more almighty it became.
It was so much so that it resembled the goddess sanctuary at first glance.
She realized that the Overgeared Gods achievements were far more than she expected.
‘An absolute on the surface.
Gabriel evaluated the Overgeared God as so and revealed her power.
She fired a beam of light from her expanded halo and caused a storm with 14 wings.
It smashed the hundreds of swords in real time and shook up Grids sanctuary.
Her hand, which had the energy of a god killer, pierced Grids heart.
[You have suffered fatal damage!]
[You have entered the immortality state.]
[The energy of a god killer has reduced the function of immortality.
The duration of the immortality is 4 seconds.]
It was one step too late.
The reason why Gabriels hand was able to pierce Grids heart was because Grid had narrowed the distance to cut her neck.
Gabriels soul abandoned her body and escaped.
Grid alone had suppressed the situation before the apostles even arrived.
Grid completely overwhelmed Gabriel, who had a better talent than Martial God Zeratul who descended to the surface a few months ago.
It was a difference made by his increased level and the possession of a sanctuary.
Numerous notification windows filled Grids vision.
However, the thing that pleased him wasnt the rewards, but Garions presence by his side.
He protected her.
