The walls of the array above the lookout island had multiple cracks .
The lookout island was constantly trembling . It felt as though a giant had sliced the island dozens of times and each slice would extend over dozens of miles to a hundred miles .
It wasn’t just no . 5 lookout island, it was the same for the other lookout islands .
“Not good . ”
On the iron tower, the imposing figure’s eyes contracted .
The lookout islands were enveloped with class 7 arrays and it wouldn’t possibly be broken unless it was attacked by a monarch or a demonic king .
Even if it was a monarch, it was impossible to break the array in just one or two attacks . Only high-level monarchs had the strength to destroy the array in a single strike .
It was obvious that it wasn’t a demonic king destroying the array . It was the waves from a stronger array that was destroying the foundation of the lookout island’s array .
If the array waves were able to gradually destroy class 7 arrays, even a fool would know that it must be a class 8 array .
Apart from class 8 arrays, class 7 arrays weren’t able to cover hundreds of thousands of miles of the sea region .
The limits of class 7 arrays were at best around 10,000 miles .
Only class 8 arrays could cover the range of hundreds of thousands of miles . It was said that the limit was a million miles .
He didn’t believe that the Red Flood Dragon King could set up a class 8 array . Only Law Phase Realm emperors or some Primary Sea Realm monarchs could set up class 8 arrays . But the precondition was that they were proficient in arrays . They must have a very high proficiency in arrays, otherwise, not even Law Phase Realm emperors could set up class 8 arrays .
If the Red Flood Dragon King could set up a class 8 array, the Red Rainbow Sect would have already been destroyed .
In terms of arrays, demonic beasts and demons knew nothing . Instead of believing they could set up class 8 arrays, it was more convincing if someone said that the Red Flood Dragon King had broken through to class 8 and became a demonic emperor .
The imposing figure pressed down with his right hand . A massive and magnificent power stabilized the entire no . 5 lookout island and the array .
Inner sect elders that could oversee the lookout islands were all monarchs that had cultivation beyond the 3rd level of Primary Sea Realm . Otherwise, it wouldn’t be possible to deal with such emergencies . At the 4th level of Primary Sea Realm, it was possible for the imposing figure to oversee the lookout island that was a few hundred miles .
It was unknown how long could he hold it for .
“Everyone is to return to the lookout island . ” The imposing figure burst out with a yell that reached out to thousands of miles .
“Hurry up and return . It seems like something huge is going to happen . ”
“Go, I keep feeling ill at ease . ”
All the Red Rainbow Sect’s elders and disciples desperately rushed back .
It was a pity that with the obstructions from the sea beasts, less than half the people could rush back to the lookout island immediately .
The imposing figure was actually a robust middle-aged man with greyish hair . At this moment, his forehead was perspiring with sweat .
Stabilizing the class 7 array that was about to collapse was much harder than he imagined .
It was the same feeling of someone trying to suppress the eruption of a volcano . The longer the suppression, the bigger the pressure .
“The first batch will teleport back now . ” The robust middle-aged man spoke in a deep tone and it was obvious that his qi was lacking .
After a massive number of spirit stones were thrown into the cavity at the center of the teleportation platform, a radiance lit up and the first batch of a few hundred individuals vanished from the teleportation platform .
Li Fuchen was also on the way back to the lookout island as he wasn’t very lucky .
When the sea region appeared with the anomaly, he was the first to detect it .
But at that moment, he was surrounded by four class 6 mid-tier sea beasts and one of them possessed formidable bloodline . For a moment, he was unable to break out of the encirclement .
When the inner sect elder’s voice echoed, Li Fuchen risked getting injured to break out .
But he was too far away from the lookout island . When the first batch of people teleported, he was only halfway back .
Soon enough, the second batch had also teleported .
The batch had more people than the first batch . Close to 900 people had teleported out, only dozens of people didn’t make it back .
“I can only do it until this point . ”
The robust middle-aged man vomited a mouthful of blood and suddenly rushed into the sky .
The lookout island that was a few hundred miles in size had suddenly collapsed and the array broke along with it .
The elders and disciples that couldn’t rush back in time were filled with despair . Without the protection of the lookout island’s array in this vast sea, they couldn’t possibly survive .
“Haha, kill these humans . They have nowhere to escape . ”
From behind, a large number of sea beasts were in pursuit . Some of the class 6 sea beasts were extremely fast and had caught up to them .
“Board the battleship!”
The rest of the people had gathered together without hesitation . One of the inner sect monarch-class disciples took out a palm-sized battleship .
In the next moment, the battleship expanded and everyone boarded it .
This was a class 6 small-sized battleship . Its speed was comparable to high-level Battle Spirit Realm masters . It flew like a stream of light and left the class 6 sea beasts behind . Only a few of the class 6 high-tier sea beasts were still following at the back .
“Everyone, my name is Xu Heng . This class 6 small-sized battleship is rented for 10,000 contribution coins a day . I have rented it for two days . There are forty of you here, it wouldn’t be too much to ask for everyone to pay 200 contribution coins a day, right?” The inner sect monarch-class disciple called Xu Heng had stated .
“It isn’t too much . 200 contribution coins for each day is too little for you . I suggest that everyone should pay 300 contribution coins a day . As for the spirit stones to operate the battleship, we will provide it too . ” An outer sect elder said .
Without the battleship, they would certainly get scattered and quickly eliminated .
With the class 6 battleship, as long as they supplied enough low-grade spirit stones, it would be able to burst out with the firepower of a mid-level Battle Spirit Realm master . If it was filled with mid-grade spirit stones, it could actually burst out with the firepower of a high-level Battle Spirit Realm master . Most importantly, the battleship was fast enough and when they rode the battleship, they didn’t have to exhaust any qi .
This was extremely important . After all, the sea was vast and extensive, once the qi was depleted, it would be hard to constantly replenish one’s qi with spirit stones and elixirs .
“Elder Wan is right . We should give you 300 contribution coins a day . It is fortunate that you rented a class 6 battleship, otherwise, we will all be dead . ”
The rest of the people nodded and didn’t even try to negotiate .
At this moment, resources were important but not as important as their lives .
Let alone 300 contribution coins, even if they had to pay 500 or 1000 contribution coins a day, they would also be willing .
The battleship shook as a winged giant fish shot out a bubble that smashed on the ship .
“It is the class 6 high-tier sea beast, Flying Shadow Fish . Don’t waste your spirit stones, I will deal with it . ”
Elder Wan was at the 8th level of Battle Spirit Realm . He drew his battle saber and slashed through the battleship’s array to cleave the Flying Shadow Fish .
Tss Tss Tss…
The saber light like a lightning flashing across the sky . It shuddered nine times along the way and with each shudder, the saber light would change its trajectory . The Flying Shadow Fish couldn’t even react in time and when it was struck by the lightning saber light, it fell from the sky .
“Such an incredible saber art!”
Li Fuchen could see that Elder Wan’s saber art was an earth class peak-tier martial art and it wasn’t superior to the Cloud Flame Thousand Incineration in terms of profundity .
But Elder Wan was at the 8th level of Battle Spirit Realm .
With a higher cultivation level, one would be able to exhibit more of the true profundity of the martial arts .
If a Primary Sea Realm monarch was here, a casual move would easily achieve the profundity of an earth class high-tier martial art . Only earth class peak-tier martial arts could enhance a Primary Sea Realm’s combat strength .
This was why martial artists would require a higher class of martial arts as their cultivation increased .
With the increase in cultivation, martial arts of the lower classes wouldn’t be useful anymore . A casual attack would already contain all of the essence from the martial arts that were mastered .
When one’s cultivation reached the later phase, many of the martial arts’ essence would be fused into your fundamentals . A casual move would contain countless martial arts’ essence .
Elder Wan’s saber art was also at the trance stage but his qi circulation method was extremely exquisite and very detailed . Li Fuchen’s sword art might be the same stage, but due to his cultivation, it was hard to be detailed .
As class 6 high-tier sea beasts attacked, Elder Wan struck them down one after the other .
With Elder Wan’s strength, unless it was a class 6 high-tier sea beast with formidable bloodline, no other sea beasts would be a match for him .
High above the sky, the robust middle-aged man didn’t leave yet .
Looking down from above, he was finally able to see everything clearly .
Looking at the sea of blood, blood-colored patterns were appearing .
The blood-colored pattern was obviously an array pattern and it was emitting horrific waves . It caused the sea to boil and the weather to change . There were waterspouts that connected the sky to the sea, the dark clouds in the sky were slowly converging and emitting a world destructive qi presence .
“Class 8 array, this is definitely a class 8 array!” The robust middle-aged man took a deep breath .
He had never seen a class 8 array, but only a class 8 array could explain everything .
The array patterns that he could see was only a small portion of the entire class 8 array . There were more array patterns that he couldn’t see, as he was at the 4th level of Primary Sea Realm and could only release his awareness by a little more 10,000 miles .
Each level in the Primary Sea Realm had an extremely huge gap .
The gap was so huge that unless the monarchs cultivated heaven class manuals, it was impossible to compensate for the gap .
In between each level of the Primary Sea Realm, the capability of the awareness was also extremely huge .
At the 1st level of Primary Sea Realm, the awareness could only reach a few thousand miles . It would increase by 50% at the 2nd level of Primary Sea Realm, it would increase by another 50% at the 3rd level of Primary Sea Realm .
As a 4th level of Primary Sea Realm monarch, it was already praiseworthy for his awareness to extend more than 10,000 miles .
Despite the case, a scouting range of 10,000 miles was only a tip of the iceberg of the class 8 array . Only Law Phase Realm emperors were able to use their awareness to envelop the entire class 8 array .
But was this class 8 array activated intentionally or unintentionally?
If it was activated intentionally, what exactly was the Red Flood Dragon King planning?
“The class 8 array is going to activate soon . If I don’t leave, it will be hard to predict if I will be able to survive . ”
The robust middle-aged man’s eyes spotted the class 6 small-sized battleship a few thousand miles away .
It was impossible to see the movement trajectory of the robust middle-aged man . In just a short moment, the robust middle-aged man caught up to the battleship .
“Let me send you out . The rest will be up to yourselves . ”
A surge of boundless qi enveloped the battleship . The robust middle-aged man pushed forcefully and launched the battleship at a speed that was dozens of times faster than before . Had it not been for the robust middle-aged man’s qi protection, the battleship would have crumbled at such speed .
