Chapter 783: The Beast God Continent Invades (One)
Over ten Class 8 Magical Beasts gathered together. If this had occurred on the Tian Yuan Continent, it would be enough to shake the entire land and invite a wild storm as each of these magical beasts was equivalent to a Saint King. Such experts were extremely rare even with the entire continent in perspective.
These magical beasts were born in the artifact space and matured within it. They had learnt long ago that there was an even vaster world outside the artifact and they too had once anticipated in leaving the artifact to see the vaster world. However, they were trapped in this space, and even if they all worked together it was impossible to break out. As a result, they could only endure it silently, living their lives out like prisoners.
However, the artifact spirit had offered them freedom. This was something no one could resist. All the Class 8 Magical Beasts in the artifact had gathered; even those who always remained in seclusion came out.
Gaining freedom and exploring an even vaster world had always been their dreams. No one would ever miss such a rare opportunity for it to come true.
“The ancient vow is extremely powerful. Even using all the energy in this space, I couldn’t even shake it. All of you prepare to use your most powerful attack to assault this formation with me,” the artifact spirit said sternly before controlling all the energy within the space once again. Immediately, the terrifying energy of destruction began to gather in the surroundings once again, quickly condensing into a meter-wide fist under the spirit’s compressment.
Energy of destruction radiated from the fist. It distorted space, annihilating the sky. The entire space began to shake violently, causing the ground to crack and mountains to collapse. It seemed like the end of the world.
The fist seemed to be able to destroy the world.
Behind the artifact spirit, the human-shaped Class 8 Magical Beasts all became solemn. They glanced at the artifact spirit in shock, were astounded by the spirit’s strength. Before the fist none of them even had the thought of resisting, as it was enough to easily obliterate them.
“I- is- is this the power of Saint Emperors?”
All the magical beasts stared at the spirit with eyes filled with dread.
“What’re you waiting for!?” The artifact spirit turned around and yelled at the magical beasts.
With a jerk, the magical beasts did not hesitate at all and immediately condensed all their strength into their hands.
As the magical beasts on-par to Saint Kings began to move at same time, a terrifying pressure pervaded the entire space. It caused countless beasts to tremble while the surrounding energy of the world and Radiant Saint Force fell into utter chaos.
The space trembled more and more violently as it distorted severely while it became flooded in darkness where the magical beasts stood. The space had already been destroyed, revealing pitch-black void.
The artifact spirit cried out, before striking out along with the magical beasts. The terrifying charged-up energy rippled out violently with the force of destruction as the huge fist and the various beast heads and weapons condensed by the magical beasts collided with the Six-Colored Star Formation.
A deafening sound reverberated across the entire space. Suddenly, the formation exploded with a dazzling light, resisting the attacks desperately.
A while later, the attacks dispersed into the air in the form of energy while the formation remained untouched. The powerful strike from over ten Class 8 Magical Beasts and the great artifact spirit did not break the formation. Its toughness and strength was at a terrifying level.
“The ancient vow’s energy is too powerful.” The artifact spirit’s expression became rather ugly.
Looking at the unharmed formation, the magical beasts all became extremely stern. Shock overwhelmed them completely; the strength of the formation was just unbelieveable.
“Let’s do it again. I refuse to believe that we can’t break this vow. If you all want your freedom, don’t hold back at all.” The artifact spirit gritted his teeth while his complexion became terrifying. As long as the vow remained, he would always remained tied up here.
The magical beasts all looked at each other; every single one of them had a sliver of resolution. Shortly afterwards they all growled, turning back into their beast form. They had been trapped here for thousands of years; to them, nothing was more important than freedom. For freedom and for a vaster world they were willing to pay anything to break this vow, to return to their ancestor’s lands, to see the outside world.
The group of magical beasts did not lack any beast of antiquities. Of the dozen or so, three stood out the most.
One of them was a three-hundred-meter-long Golden Divine Dragon covered in golden scales. It radiated with a terrifying, earth-shaking presence. He was the most powerful among the magical beasts, already a Ninth Heavenly Layer Saint King. He was undebatably the most powerful within the artifact space with only the artifact spirit himself able to suppress him.
The second was a huge, thousand-meter-long alligator covered in ink-black scales. Each scale had an extremely sharp spike, so it looked like a hedgehog with its countless tiny spikes.
The alligator was a mutated king beast. It was not a beast of antiquity, but it was not any weaker than one. All it lacked was the inherited memories that beasts of antiquities possessed. The mutated alligator also possessed terrifying strength as an Eighth Heavenly Layer Saint King. It was only second to the Golden Divine Dragon in the artifact space.
The third was a bird covered in roaring flames, a Scorching Divine Phoenix. It was also a beast of antiquity while the flames which covered it seemed to reach the very limit at which fire could burn at. It was able to scorch the void and burn everything. Its waves of heat even kept a few magical beasts at a certain distance, unwilling to approach it.
The Scorching Divine Phoenix was also extremely powerful; it too was an Eighth Heavenly Layer Saint King. It stood equal to the mutated alligator in the artifact space.
The Class 8 Magical Beasts had all turned to their beast forms, displaying their most powerful condition. Afterwards, they all struck at the formation with devastating attacks along with the artifact spirit without holding back at all.
Under the powerful boom, the formation radiated with a dazzling light as it resisted desperately, but it did not break. Although it was just a formation, the toughness was unbelieveable.
The artifact space closely eyed the formation, while a sliver of joy slowly appeared on his face. He said, “I can feel that the energy of the vow has weakened slightly. Let’s continue. We need to break this formation.”
The magical beasts continued to attack the formation violently with the artifact spirit without any pauses.
Outside the artifact space, no one had discovered that the saint artifact hidden in the white ball of light was trembling violently above the huge castle. With every single attack the artifact would jerk violently. The battle occurring inside was greatly affecting the artifact itself.
At the same time, in the very depths of the Cross Mountains, the tiger king of the Gilligan clan that pursued Jian Chen sat cross-legged in a majestic hall. The light in his eyes flickered while his expression constantly varied. He was clearly making a decision.
“A month’s already passed and there hasn’t been any news of the Winged Tiger God. The five human Saint Rulers are still alive, but with their strength they should’ve completed my mission already with so much time. Looks like they’ve encountered problems with human experts.” The tiger king mumbled while his expression darkened soon after. He suddenly stood up and said, “I can’t drag this out any longer. Since the human experts already know about the Winged Tiger God, it’s impossible for the five Saint Rulers to complete this mission with their strength. I need to report back to the Beast God Continent.”
With that, the tiger king immediately removed a piece of jade from his Space Ring with a flip of his hand. Suddenly, his heart jerked and he thought, “Since human experts have already learnt about the Winged Tiger God, they must’ve done things to prevent me from communicating with the Beast God Continent. Looks like my normal way of communicating won’t work anymore. I need to use a secret technique.”
With that, the tiger king suddenly disappeared. He reappeared in a hidden basement with a complicated formation in the very centre of the room.
The tiger king arrived at it and spat out a mouthful of blood onto the formation. Using a secret technique to activate it, the formation began to turn immediately. It gave off a hazy light and soon afterwards, a dark, burly silhouette appeared in it. The person’s appearance could not be seen.
With the silhouette’s appearance, time in the basement seemed to stop. Even the air seemed to freeze while a powerful pressure appeared vaguely, filling the entire room.
As soon as he saw the black shadow, the tiger king’s face became filled with respect. He immediately fell to his knees with his face buried in the ground. With a courteous tone, he said, “Tiger King Anderken greets the ruler.”
“Anderken, was the matter with the Winged Tiger God successful?” The shadow said with a heavy voice.
“Ruler, it was this one who did things badly. There have been changes of the matter of the Winged Tiger God. Experts of the Tian Yuan Continent have learned about it. With this one’s powers, it is no longer possible to complete this mission. Ruler, please punish me.” Tiger King Anderken’s tone was extremely polite.
The shadow paused for a while before continuing, “I understand. Don’t worry any more about the Winged Tiger God, let me handle it. Since the experts of the Tian Yuan Continent wish to interfere with the matters of the Beast God Continent, I can’t be blamed for ignoring the rules set down by the beast god and Mo Tianyun all those years ago.”
