The tremendous change to the Loop of Trade Winds had shaken the entire city.
And such a change might not be for the better—
The Druids quickly became anxious, while the various factions started to act quietly in the city. That night, the messengers from the Kirrlutz Empire visited the members from the Aouine Kingdom and the Holy Cathedral of Fire privately. New rumors started circulating at the same time.
The first rumor was about the awakening of a Holy Sword that existed in legends, King Erik’s Lionheart, which was also the cause of the Divine Resonance half a year ago.

The Blackthorn committee received a report—
The clouds over the Loop of Trade Winds had split into half and had a clear path that lasted for ten miles. However, no one knew exactly what was happening in the area. Once the clouds cleared, the mountains became dangerous because the monsters in the foggy areas became active.
It was for this reason that the Druids lost several of their observation points. The frontline was crumbling. Things were becoming tense.
In the courtyard where the Goddess Nia was worshiped stood hundreds of Elder Druids. Even the nearby branches were filled with members of the outer circle. The place was filled with tension.
[It seems all their elites have gathered here.]
Brendel glanced at his surroundings before looking up. The evening sky was dark red in color, and countless birds were flying around the six ancient trees in great density, which nearly covered half the sky. And when he looked down—
