Chapter 1532: Death of an Origin Realm Expert
Terrifying coldness permeated the surroundings as strands of white, profound ice Qi shot off in all directions. Changyang Mingyue engaged in an intense battle against Cheng Jingyun in the air.
Changyang Mingyue felt extremely irritated after learning that she might be the snow goddess protector Shui had mentioned. Cheng Fengyun, on the other hand, had become Changyang Mingyue’s emotional release.
Changyang Mingyue fought as hard as she could against Cheng Jingyun. Booms constantly rang out, causing the ground below to collapse. The space around them distorted violently as well. If Changyang Mingyue had not created the domain, which strengthened the space around them, then just the terrifying shockwaves from their battle would have been enough to destroy the Tian Yuan Continent.
Cheng Fengyun was bathed in her own blood. Even though she was at mid Returnance, she was beaten into a retreat by Changyang Mingyue’s intense attacks. White crystals would appeared on Cheng Jingyun’s body from time to time, forcing her to devote a portion of her strength to stop the expansion of the crystals while she fended off Changyang Mingyue’s intense barrage of attacks.
She had suffered from Changyang Mingyue’s By Fate earlier, having sustained extremely severe wounds. She obviously needed to pay particular attention to the crystals that would appear on her from time to time. As long as she was not frozen by them, Changyang Mingyue would not be able to use her ability again.
“Who is this woman? Why is she so powerful? She’s clearly just at early Returnance, but she can keep me at bay, and this coldness is just too powerful. Even I have to remain wary of it,” Cheng Jingyun grumbled inside. She glanced beyond the domain before immediately charging toward the sky, attempting to break free from the domain. Once the domain was gone, she could use all her strength. Coupled with her secret techniques, she believed that they would be enough stop her retreat even if they were not enough to defeat Changyang Mingyue.
“Boom!” However, when Cheng Jingyun was about to charge out of the domain, she seemed to have hit a wall and produced a heavy thud. She was unable to leave the domain. Changyang Mingyue’s domain was like a cage. She could not leave unless she smashed through it.
Changyang Mingyue flew up from below ready to attack. Her entire body was surrounded by a terrifying coldness as she charged after Cheng Jingyun.
Cheng Jingyun became stern. She glanced at Xiong Zhong and Gongxi Ming, who were fighting in outer space, and gritted her teeth, “Since you don’t want me to leave, then I’ll smash through this domain.” With a flip of her hand, a one-and-half-meter-long whip suddenly appeared. The whip was made from some unknown material. It seemed simple, yet it radiated ripples of energy that seemed even more powerful than the ancestral weapons from the protector clans. The air around it trembled.
“Dragonflight!” Cheng Fengyun cried out and used a secret technique. With a wave of her hand, the whip expanded as it moved through the air, growing several hundred meters in a single moment. It let out a dazzling azure light, which enveloped the snow-white sky.
Suddenly, the thunderous roar of a dragon appeared. The glowing whip seemed to have become a dragon that was several hundred meters long. It possessed two horns and a snake-like body. There were no wings but four legs extended from its belly. It flew through the air like it was riding the wind and clouds, charging toward Changyang Mingyue with the terrifying aura of a dragon.
Changyang Mingyue and Cheng Jingyun fought on the edge of the atmosphere. Below them, the gathered experts from the four races and the army of the foreign world were embroiled in a great war.
This time, Xiao Jin did not protect anyone like before. Instead, he took on a Receival expert from the foreign world all by himself. The expert had already reached late Receival, but Xiao Jin’s strength had already increased to mid Receival after eating a Violet Cloud Peach. Coupled with the fact that he was a metallic spirit, having been born from the metal of the world, he possessed a specific advantage in certain areas. Along with the Nine Godly Arts from Xiao Ling, Xiao Jin was able to maintain equal footing with the late Receival expert from the World of Forsaken Saints even though he lacked battle experience.
Yang Lie, Feng Xiaotian, and Guihai Yidao each took on a Receival expert from the foreign world, but they relied on the saint weapons in their hands to stand up to their opponents. Their personal strengths had not increased beyond peak Saint Emperor after all, so their opponents forced them to fight defensively. If it were not for the fact that they had once been Origin realm expert and had gone through countless battles of life or death, they probably would not have lasted until now.
The sea goddess kept two Receival experts busy by herself. Although she still remained at Receival, she had reached the very peak of late Receival, only an inch away from Returnance. At the same time, the sea goddess had lived for over a million years. Even though she had remained in the form of a soul for most of that time, her soul had completely surpassed Receival after a million years of refinement, which was why she was able to hold her ground against two experts on the same level as her.
A’Da, A’Er, A’San, and A’Si had created a sword formation, keeping a single Receival expert busy with their strength as peak Saint Emperors. The space where the sword formation lay had dulled. Only a brutally sharp sword Qi could be sensed. Nothing could be seen inside. Even the senses of a Returnance expert’s soul was unable to penetrate the formation.
Tie Ta wielded a golden axe as he fought against an Origin realm expert from the foreign world as well. Although he only possessed strength at Receival, he possessed the power to take on a Returnance expert. Regular Returnance experts would not be able to hold their ground against him, so the Receival expert he fought was heavily injured after a single strike. The Receival expert flew back and vomited blood. His body had almost been cleaved in two by a single stroke. Shock filled his face.
“Mysteries of War, Mortality-breaker!” Tie Ta bellowef. He began to shine a brighter golden color as he swung his axe down a second time.
The golden axe fell toward the receival expert with a devastating power. The foreign expert could not even dodge the attack. He was only able to place his huge sword above his head and attempt to parry the attack.
With a boom, the sword of extraordinary quality was cleaved into two by Tie Ta’s axe. The axe on the other hand continued down without slowing at all. It struck the top of his head and chopped him in half, splitting his body between his eyes. His soul was wiped out.
The first Origin realm expert to fall in this battle had been cleaved in half by Tie Ta in two strokes.
The Myriad Armament Formation that had been created by the forty-nine Saint Emperors continued to send out ancestral weapons to keep the remaining Receival experts busy. The other ancestral weapons were used to massacre the foreign Saint Emperors who endlessly poured out of the tunnel.
The battle among Saint Emperors had begun. Their battles were extremely intense and people died constantly. The Saint Emperors of the four races all created formations as they surrounded groups from the World of Forsaken Saints. The puppets of revived Saint Weapons took part in the battle as well. They fought at the very front, engaging in an intense massacre as they killed the foreign Saint Emperors.
The puppets felt no pain or fear. They were machines. Even after suffering unimaginable injuries, they would keep on fighting until they were obliterated. After they were chopped in half, they would continue to raise their weapons and swing them mercilessly at their opponents. They would continue as long as their heads were still intact. After some time, the puppets began to send shivers down the foreign Saint Emperors’ spines.
No one on the battlefield, including the Saint Emperors of both worlds, would fight as desperately as these puppets. Once heavily injured, almost everyone would flee from the battle. There were very few people who were willing to lay down their lives. However, a lot of Saint Emperors still died.
Kai Ya did not take a direct role in that battle. Instead, she ordered the Seven-colored Heaven-devouring Beast to fight against a Receival expert from the foreign world and opened the space where the soaring ants all thrived at the same time, allowed the ants to surge out. They were innumerable as they flooded every corner of the battlefield.
These soaring ants were not powerful individuals. In fact, there was not a single one that had reached Class 9 aside from the Seven-colored Heaven-devouring Beast. Even the number of Class 8 soaring ants could be counted using ten fingers. However, the soaring ants were naturally immune to all energy attacks. Coupled with their steel-like bodies and terrifying numbers, the ants had become the scariest fighters on the battlefield. Although they were not strong enough to threaten Origin realm experts, Saint Emperors found them to be fatal. If a large swathe of them surged over, Saint Emperors would fall.
