Obviously, Mighty Serpent also knew that it was impossible for him, Dark Mount, and the others to cross the turret and take down the Tree of the Ocean.
“Oh? Join forces? How?” Dark Mount asked curiously. He was very interested in Mighty Serpent’s suggestion.
He knew that it was possible to proceed cautiously from the start, but it was impossible now.
Mighty Serpent looked at the shield in Dark Mount’s hand and a wise light flashed across his eyes. He said indifferently, “Brother Dark Mount! That shield of yours should be able to block six or seven cannonballs, right?”
After hearing this, Dark Mount was greatly shocked. He thought to himself, “As expected of the best of the sea serpents! His intelligence is outstanding! He could tell the exact situation with just one look! It seems that we have to be more careful when we propose to join hands. We can’t fail miserably!”
“Brother Mighty Serpent, you must be joking. This shield can withstand five more cannonballs and it will be broken.” Although he was shocked, Dark Mount still replied calmly.
“Oh? Then let’s do it five times. According to my judgment, the attack range of this turret is limited. It should be triggered within 100 meters of the Ocean Tree!”
“Since Brother Dark Mount has a shield, Brother Dark Mount, you can attract the firepower of the turrets. Then, you can cover me to get the Ocean Tree. How about we split it 50-50 later?” Mighty Serpent said gently. An imperceptible gleam flashed across his eyes.
“Why don’t you go and attract the firepower? I’ll get the Ocean Tree!” Dark Mount shouted when he heard that.
Clearly, Dark Mount was afraid that Mighty Serpent would betray him.
“If you can trust me with the shield, I can go and attract the firepower!” Mighty Serpent smiled and teased Dark Mount.
“That won’t do! This shield was given to us by the elders in the tribe. We have to bring it back to report!” Dark Mount replied coldly.
“Think about whether you want to join forces with me! The longer this drags on, the more creatures will come. Then, we won’t have the chance to take down this Ocean Tree!” Mighty Serpent smiled.
With that, he turned to leave.
Dark Mount thought for a while and looked at Mighty Serpent who was about to turn around and leave. He quickly said, “Wait! I can promise you, but I want you to swear that after we get the Ocean Tree, we will split it 50-50!”
A hint of a smile appeared on Mighty Serpent’s face as he turned around and left, as if he had expected Dark Mount to agree.
“Sure! I, Mighty Serpent, hereby swear that if I obtain the Ocean Tree, I will split it with you fifty-fifty, or else I will die without a burial place!” Mighty Serpent said without hesitation.
When Dark Mount heard this, he relaxed.
“Since that’s the case, then let’s talk about the specific plan!” Mighty Serpent said indifferently.
After thinking about it for a while, Dark Mount said slowly, “We have to figure out the number of turrets and the area they cover. We have to move forward as far as possible within the range that the turrets do not cover. We have to make sure that the shield’s defense is limited to less than five times!”
“I didn’t expect your brain to be so good! That’s right. We have to figure this out before we can move forward! And according to my judgment, the turret can’t attack again for a short period of time after attacking once!” After hearing Dark Mount’s analysis, Mighty Serpent was surprised for a moment and then said.
“No matter what, I am still one of the best among the Snitches! I still have this little analytical ability!” Dark Mount said confidently, but he didn’t see the flash of light in Mighty Serpent’s eyes.
“Then how do we figure it out?” Dark Mount asked.
“We can only let our clansmen explore! Our clansmen will take turns!” Mighty Serpent replied.
“Alright!” At this point, Dark Mount would naturally not question anything. This was their last chance!
Hence, Mighty Serpent and Dark Mount returned to their own tribes to reorganize their clansmen and started to make their own plans.
“You! Go up!” When they were several dozen steps away from where they were attacked, Mighty Serpent spoke to the clan.
The clansman who was called did not dare to resist his leader’s orders and could only go forward while trembling.
After moving forward for dozens of steps, the serpent was drenched in sweat. Finally, he was a hundred meters away from the Ocean Tree. He closed his eyes, as his comrades around him were far behind him.
The expected cannonball did not appear. The serpent heaved a sigh of relief and sat on the ground. Then, he was supported by his clansmen, who helped him back to the formation.
As a result, a group of serpents arrived at the spot where the first serpent was at just now. As expected, no cannonballs appeared.
“Brother Dark Mount! It’s your turn,” Mighty Serpent said excitedly.
A look of joy also appeared on Dark Mount’s face. This proved that their method was correct. As long as they continued searching, they would eventually reach the Ocean Tree.
At the same time, Dark Mount also sent a tribe member to investigate.
When they continued forward, they heard a loud boom. A cannonball flew high into the sky towards the clansmen.
Seeing the incoming shells, Mighty Serpent, Dark Mount, and the others hurriedly turned around and left. Although the clansman was dodging everywhere, the shells were aimed at him. He was still affected by the explosion of the shells and was blown to bits on the spot!
Dark Mount, Mighty Serpent, and the others sucked in a breath of cold air. The tribe members were glad that they were not the target just now.
After a moment of silence, Dark Mount said coldly, “Brother Mighty Serpent, it’s your turn!”
The one who died was his own tribe member, so Dark Mount naturally did not look happy.
It was clear that Mighty Serpent knew how Dark Mount felt at that moment. He did not waste any more words and continued sending his tribesmen to bypass the previous person’s position and continue advancing.
The clansman who was sent out were so scared that his body trembled. However, he did not dare to disobey the order. He could only curse the Mighty Serpent in his heart a million times.
When this serpent shakily stretched out his foot and stepped forward, a rumbling sound rang out.
As expected, the serpent also died in the cannonball.
Right now, both Mighty Serpent and Dark Mount were extremely solemn in their hearts. However, there was no turning back. They could only force their way forward!
Just like that, the group of creatures closed in upon the Ocean Tree. Although they had lost many of their clansmen and spent a lot of time, they were getting closer and closer!
On the other hand, when Lei Xiu saw Mighty Serpent and Dark Mount using this tactic to get close to the Ocean Tree, he became anxious.
Others might not know, but he himself was very clear that every time the underwater turret attacked, it would have to recharge for a short period of time. Furthermore, there were only six underwater turrets around the Sea Tree. The range that they covered was limited. At this rate, his enemies would arrive here sooner or later.
“Mo Nian… why aren’t you guys here yet? Hurry up…” Lei Xiu looked at Mighty Serpent, Dark Mount, and the others who were getting closer and closer to the Ocean Tree. He then turned around and muttered to himself in a certain direction behind him.
