The Primordial Soaring Serpent spread its wings and a heatwave surged into the nine heavens as it surveyed the surroundings with scarlet eyes.
The formidable power of this phenomenon was spreading!
Crack! Crack! Crack!
Some of the flying swords and spirit weapons in midair could not handle the pressure and cracked. Their lights dimmed as they turned into fragments, scattering onto the ground.
A single glance from the Primordial Soaring Serpent caused some of the cultivators to burst into flames that engulfed them rapidly, burning them into ashes!
The might of a divine being was unstoppable!
The Primordial Soaring Serpent devoured the lava in large mouthfuls and its aura turned increasingly frightening.
The scales on the serpent became brighter and shone with a blinding shade of scarlet that resembled metal plates that were heated red!
Gazing at the thousands of Golden Core phenomenons and the puny humans, the Primordial Soaring Serpent reared its head and hissed between its breaths.
The Primordial Soaring Serpent fanned the flames with its wings and its eyes spewed fire. Opening its blood-red mouth, it spat out a stream of scorching lava!
Instantly, the void turned into a sea of flames!
The combined Golden Core phenomenons of many cultivators could only manage to hold out the Primordial Divine Turtle.
However, the descent of the Primordial Soaring Serpent broke that stalemate!
Crack! Crack! Crack!
Accompanied by loud sounds, countless Golden Core phenomenons shattered and many Golden Cores were devoured directly by the steaming lava, turning into ashes without corpses.
“Ah! Ah! Ahhhh!”
A series of tragic, shuddering wails sounded.
Although there were thousands of Golden Core phenomenons, none of them could withstand the blast of the two divine beings, the Divine Turtle and Soaring Serpent!
Even Glass Divine Light could not do it!
The Divine Turtle roared with rage and currents surged, raising torrential tides that engulfed all living beings!
The Soaring Serpent hissed and lava spewed, igniting a sea of flames that spanned hundreds of kilometers and incinerated all living beings!
Even the bodies of Glass Palace cultivators could not withstand the crash of the tides and the roast of the lava.
20 years later, Su Zimo had not only recovered his Golden Core, the two Golden Core phenomenons that he had once cultivated had resurfaced in the world as well!
All the cultivators were horrified and scurried for their lives.
Nobody noticed that although the two phenomenons behind Su Zimo were the same 20 years on, there were a few changes to the phenomenons themselves!
20 years ago, the Divine Turtle and Soaring Serpent phenomenons were irreconcilable; fire and water, immortal and fiend.
The two phenomenons were completely distinct.
But now, there was no longer any conflict of fire and water nor was there any contention between immortal and fiend between the two phenomenons – their boundaries were blurred and fire and water was intertwined.
The heavens shattered and void currents flowed everywhere as meteors fell. A Divine Turtle stood between the world and stabilized the void currents with its limbs while holding up the heavens with its back as it roared into the skies!
The ground caved in and a volcano exploded with spewing lava. The Primordial Soaring Serpent tore through the ground and devoured the lava as it descended upon the world!
The heavens collapsed and lightning flashed. The two divine beings, the Divine Turtle and Soaring Serpent, seemed like they could fuse together at any moment!
After his 20 years of dormancy at the bottom of Dragon Burial Valley, a complete transformation had happened both inside and outside of Su Zimo and it was not only in terms of his Inner Core and body.
It was for his Golden Core phenomenons as well!
To be precise, apart from Su Zimo, nobody knew what sort of Golden Core phenomenons he had cultivated and nobody had seen it before.
“Everyone, don’t panic!”
The Glass Palace Sealer stood in midair and said loudly, “Although this little b*stard can circulate spirit energy, he is pinned to the ground by the formation and can’t move at all!”
Some of the cultivators who had escaped noticed that as well and let out beguiled expressions.
“He’s a demon so there’s no way he can break free from the restraints of the Omnidirectional Demon Suppression Formation! Everyone, avoid his attacks and don’t fight him head-on! Once his Golden Core phenomenons are gone and his spirit energy is expended, he will be a sheep waiting to be culled!”
The words of Glass Palace’s Sealer caused the eyes of the surviving cultivators to light up.
Although Su Zimo could release spirit art and the dragon roar, he had not left his original position from the get-go!
Everyone was escaping from the battlefield to try to get away from the two divine beings around Su Zimo.
Although Golden Core phenomenons were strong, they could not go too far away from the cultivators.
A cold glint flashed through Su Zimo’s eyes as he cursed internally.
Although the Sealer was at the end of his lifespan, he was a Nascent Soul after all and he was truly sharp after living for close to a thousand years.
He managed to identify Su Zimo’s weakness despite the chaotic battle.
The formation that enveloped Su Zimo was created with four Sealers sacrificing their lives to activate four Demon Revealing Mirrors!
It was set up to target him specifically!
As long as he had his Inner Core, he could not break free of the restraints of the Omnidirectional Demon Suppression Formation nor could he move at all!
The pressure was present all the time!
That was also the reason why Su Zimo had been counterattacking without moving from the spot the entire time.
It was not because he did not want to, it was because he couldn’t!
It was actually simple to dispel the Omnidirectional Demon Suppression Formation.
All he had to do was destroy the formation eyes.
For this formation, the formation eyes were none other than the four Demon Revealing Mirrors on top of the four walls!
He did not require all four Demon Revealing Mirrors to be destroyed – as long as three of them were shifted, Su Zimo could break free with the use of Dharmic power from the Mingwang Prayer Beads!
However, despite the simplicity of the matter, it was extremely difficult for Su Zimo.
That was because he couldn’t move at all!
He could not even manage a simple act such as shifting his hand towards his storage bag, let alone move towards the Demon Revealing Mirrors above the walls.
This was a doomed situation!
No matter how much of a monster incarnate Su Zimo was, there was also a time where his strength was limited.
The cultivators in the ancient city did not have to attack him at all – all they had to do was wait for time to pass and they could exhaust him to death!
That was the main point that Glass Palace’s Sealer noticed as well.
A cruel glint passed through the eyes of Glass Palace’s Sealer as he remarked sinisterly, “Little b*stard, I’ll wait here and watch you die from the suppression!”
Su Zimo chuckled and replied coldly with a fierce gaze, “Old dog, I’ll make sure I take your life before I die!”
“Sure, let’s see who lasts till the end!”
Glass Palace’s Sealer nodded and sneered.
Suddenly, an earthshaking dragon’s roar sounded from outside the ancient city with a shuddering impact!
Instantly, a wild wind gusted and sand flew into a storm!
When he heard that roar, Su Zimo’s heart skipped a beat as his eyes widened with disbelief.
There was nothing special about the tiger roar in the ears of ordinary cultivators.
However, Su Zimo undertook demonic cultivation and had spent a lot of time with the spirit tiger previously – naturally, he could tell the difference.
He had once imparted the Void Thunder Manual to the spirit tiger.
That was the reason why there was a tough electric element to the tiger roar and it was bright and resounding!
Of course, the most obvious portion was the ending of the roar where it had a coquettish note – Su Zimo did not know when it got into the habit of doing that.
Back in Ethereal Peak, each time Su Zimo heard the spirit tiger make that dirty sound, he wanted to send the latter flying with a kick!
“Elder Xiu, a beast stampede is attacking us!”
A Glass Palace cultivator yelled.
Thud! Thud! Thud!
The ground shook violently.
Although he was inside the ancient city, Su Zimo could feel everything clearly.
Rearing his head, he could not help but howl into the air emotionally.
