Chapter 1126: Metal Devouring Gu
Although Gu Sect was ranked last among the five heretical doctrines, it had a long history and deep foundation.
Now, there was no actual Gu Master to be seen in Gu Sect – all of them were fused with Gu worms. Such a huge change would not have been achievable without an even stronger Gu worm!
A Conjoint Body Gu worm!
Both Su Zimo and Night Spirit were at the Void Reversion realm.
With their immense talent and multiple trump cards, they could definitely kill a Dharma Characteristic expert across a major cultivation realm!
However, if the two of them were to fight against a Conjoint Body expert, it would be hard to tell who would win given the difference of two major cultivation realms.
Neither of them could defend against the power of a Conjoint Body.
Their only chance of winning was to find the other party’s weakness and work together to defeat him!
Previously, the blind old man of the Witch race was killed by the combined attack of the two of them.
Although that battle seemed simple, it was actually extremely dangerous.
If not for the 54 green lotus seeds protecting his black-haired Essence Spirit, Su Zimo would have been reduced to a corpse back then!
Even if Night Spirit was the only one left, it would be difficult for him to severely injure the blind old man, let alone kill the latter.
Bang! Boom! Boom!
The ground quaked violently and a mound protruded slowly. The ground cracked open as though some terrifying living being was about to charge out!
Cold lights flashed.
A gigantic, slender claw that resembled a guillotine extended from the ground and sliced the ground into two!
Immediately after, another sharp claw reached out from the ground.
Two sharp claws grabbed the ground and a gigantic dark golden figure burst out of the mud, causing sand and rocks to fly everywhere!
Su Zimo narrowed his eyes and gasped when he saw the gigantic creature.
This Gu worm was dark gold in color and had six legs, two feelers and a pair of front claws. Each of its feet was like a blade that shone with a cold glint and was incomparably sharp!
There seemed to be no flaws on the Gu worm’s body.
It was as though he was wearing a dark golden armor. Waving the two gigantic guillotines at the front, the eyes on its head shone with a ferocious glint!
The moment Su Zimo’s spirit consciousness made contact with the Gu worm, it was repelled!
Even his spirit consciousness could not penetrate the dark golden armor!
Of course, even without the scan of his spirit consciousness, he could tell from the aura that this was definitely a Conjoint Body realm Gu worm!
“Metal Devouring Gu!”
Suddenly, the records of Gu worms that Xiaoning had told him flashed through Su Zimo’s mind.
The Metal Devouring Gu was one of the top ten ancient Gu worms. It could devour the five metals and strengthen itself continuously. Its body was tough and invulnerable to weapons, water and fire – it was extremely ferocious!
Su Zimo reminded with a grim expression.
At that moment, he was still using the Samadhi Dao Fire to burn the remaining Gu worms and could not attack.
In other words, they could only depend on Night Spirit to fight against the Metal Devouring Gu!
The current situation was even more dangerous than when they were fighting the blind old man!
The blind old man had an obvious weakness of his weak physique.
Be it Night Spirit or Su Zimo, they could rely on their physiques to get as close to the blind old man as possible and injure him severely.
However, the Metal Devouring Gu clearly did not have such a weakness.
Given its Conjoint Body realm cultivation, it was even stronger than Night Spirit and Su Zimo in terms of melee combat strength!
Furthermore, Su Zimo and Night Spirit had joined forces against the blind old man back then.
But now, Night Spirit was alone.
Actually, the wisest decision for the two of them was to leave this place.
Given their capabilities, even if the Metal Devouring Gu was at the Conjoint Body realm, it would have difficulties retaining the two of them here.
However, the reason why Su Zimo came this time round was to sever the root of the calamity of the Witch Gu.
Now that he knew that Gu Sect had undergone a huge change, there was no way he could leave – he had to kill all of these Gu worms here!
Endless trouble might ensue if he missed this opportunity!
“Two ants have ruined my plans!”
The Metal Devouring Gu’s eyes sank deep into its sockets as it glared at Su Zimo and Night Spirit. Its voice was sharp and piercing like metal clashing against stone.
A cold metallic luster shone in its eyes that were filled with hatred!
Against the Metal Devouring Gu, Night Spirit’s expression was cold and there was no fluctuation in his eyes. In a flash, he disappeared into midair.
The Metal Devouring Gu did not move. It merely moved its guillotine-like front claws and slashed behind it.
The strength and speed of a Conjoint Body was shockingly fast!
The void was torn and a pitch-black scar appeared when the claws slashed down!
Night Spirit was forced out.
His movement technique was agile like a phantom and kills were guaranteed with every strike of his – there were few people who could force him out.
However, this Conjoint Body Metal Devouring Gu managed to do it!
Not only that, there was even a trace of blood in midair!
The slash landed on Night Spirit’s arm and cut through his skin, leaving an extremely deep wound with blood gushing out.
Night Spirit’s gaze turned cold.
A look of surprise flashed through the Metal Devouring Gu’s eyes.
He had not expected the Void Reversion ant before him to be able to defend against his sharp claws!
Given his strength and the power of the guillotine claws, even Conjoint Body Mighty Figures of the human race would be sliced into two with a single slash!
“His body can withstand my claws?”
The killing intent in the Metal Devouring Gu’s eyes intensified as it swayed and turned into a golden beam of light that lunged towards Night Spirit.
Clang! Clang! Clang!
The Metal Devouring Gu’s six legs moved on the ground, emitting sparks. Although its body was massive, it was extremely fast.
In a flash, Night Spirit arrived above the Metal Devouring Gu’s head. He stretched out his palm and sharp claws protruded from his fingertips as he stabbed down viciously at the Metal Devouring Gu’s head!
The Metal Devouring Gu waved its front legs and charged towards Night Spirit’s claws!
The two of them clashed head-on!
Night Spirit shuddered and another wound appeared on his palm, dripping with blood.
However, there was no hint of panic in his eyes.
A long tail popped out from behind him. It was covered in purple scales and its tailbone was sharp, piercing towards the back of the Metal Devouring Gu!
This was Night Spirit’s killing move!
Sensing danger, the Metal Devouring Gu suddenly shrieked.
The soft feelers that were initially drooping on his head suddenly flung out like two steel whips towards Night Spirit!
Night Spirit’s heart skipped a beat.
Suddenly, he twisted his body and dodged in a flash, avoiding the whipping of one of the feelers.
Night Spirit shuddered; his tailbone had just pierced the back of the Metal Devouring Gu when he was struck by the other feeler and was sent flying!
In midair, Night Spirit coughed out a mouthful of blood and his face turned paler.
This was the power of a Conjoint Body that he was struck squarely by!
If it was anyone else, not to mention Void Reversions, even Dharma Characteristic Dao Lords would have been sliced into two by the feelers of the Metal Devouring Gu!
The feelers of the Metal Devouring Gu were even more terrifying than divine weapons.
Although they looked extremely thin, they were incomparably sharp!
A scar appeared on Night Spirit’s body with scarlet blood oozing out.
Su Zimo looked anxious when he saw that.
The strength of this Metal Devouring Gu was far beyond their imagination.
If they could not deal with it properly, both of them would die here!
