It was Philip who answered Fang Xingjian, "It's useless. His consciousness has already fallen asleep. It seems that he is communicating with the Senluo Six Heavens Sword to completely receive the legacy of the Mystic Abyss Heavenly Emperor."
Fang Xingjian frowned and suddenly sank into his consciousness, unleashing his Heaven's Perception to the extreme. He sensed past the physical particles in his body and did not stop there. Instead, he continued to venture deeper and deeper, heading toward the microscopic domain.
"Tyrant, control my physical body and escape for now. I'll try to strive for the Divine level."
Fang Xingjian was not a kindhearted and simple-minded person to not retaliate when he was under pursuit.
He started to strive for the Divine level as they fled, preparing for his retaliation.
Striving for the Divine level required one to look into and obtain it from the microscopic world. In other words, one had to probe deep down to the microscopic ether particles, break through the path to the world's passageways, and receive the Divine level information.
Originally, a person would be able to try to attain the Divine level at just one tier of perfection. However, Fang Xingjian held back until he had reached five tiers of perfection. He even used the Mountainous Sea's Book of the Way to reach 10,000 specialty seeds, and he also used the nuclear reactor to reach 1.08 billion physical particles. After reaching five tiers of perfection and learning the sword techniques from various sects and factions, Fang Xingjian's cultivation had become unfathomable.
When he started to strive for the Divine level at this moment, he had the feeling that things were going smoothly with all the conditions ripe for the task.
Fang Xingjian went deep into his consciousness, entered the microscopic world, and instantly arrived at the layer of physical particles. He looked at the 1.08 billion physical particles.
Then he continued to go deeper down, probed deeper into the physical particles, and saw that there were still structures within the physical particles. They were countless strange particles and waves that were constantly having exchanges.
However, these were still not ether particles. Therefore, Fang Xingjian continued to probe deeper. As he did so, the entire world appeared different to his eyes. He could no longer see any particles. He could only see countless fluctuating air bubbles, each of which seemed to contain all kinds of destructive auras.
Then he randomly went into one of the bubbles and once again advanced deeper into the microscopic world. The world before him changed yet again, and the bubbles disappeared. The scene before him faded away, and it was as if even time and space had disappeared.
At the microscopic degree, all the physical laws and the macroscopic world were completely different.
Experiencing these changes for himself, countless comprehensions suddenly flashed and appeared in Fang Xingjian's mind. All sorts of connections between the microscopic and macroscopic world continued to seethe in his mind.
There was no light, no darkness, no time, and no space. Fang Xingjian could only sense that he seemed to have come to an incorporeal ocean where everything was invisible. When space was magnified to this degree, it seemed as if there were no longer any more physical structures.
There were only waves of fluctuating energy tides.
Fang Xingjian could sense that his Heaven's Perception seemed to have reached all possible limits. However, he still could not find any traces to any of the world's passageways.
What Fang Xingjian did not know was that the Hades Vault, which he was in at the moment, was different from the Miracle World. In the greatest depths of the microscopic world here, there were no passageways of the world at all and that it was impossible for one to strive for the Divine level.
It was because Fang Xingjian was not aware of this that he kept on making attempts to probe deeper and deeper. He wanted to enter a deeper level of the microscopic world, into the smallest degree of space, and search for the existence of the world's passageways.
Tyrant let out a few shouts and bellows, but Fang Xingjian no longer gave him any replies. Looking at the fire giant behind them that was getting increasingly bigger and getting closer and closer to them, Tyrant cursed and accelerated crazily in an attempt to flee.
However, his cultivation was a far cry from Fang Xingjian's. Even though he was controlling Fang Xingjian's body, his speed and ability to dodge suffered a deep plunge. The flame clouds struck Fang Xingjian's body occasionally, and the World-Engulfing Battle God Armor only barely managed to fend off the attacks.
Hiding within the layers of flame clouds, Rona looked at Fang Xingjian, who was fleeing like a fly, and laughed loudly, "Run, run, run with what you have. Fang Xingjian, I shall see how much longer you can run."
Grabbing across space with his five fingers, a myriad of fire dragons descended from the sky and charged toward Fang Xingjian. Amidst the endless great explosions, both Tyrant and the Fourth Prince were sent flying out in all directions from the explosions. It was only with the help of the World-Engulfing Battle God Armor and Philip that they barely managed to fend off the attacks.
Looking at Fang Xingjian's state, great exhilaration rose in Rona's heart. He felt as if his cultivation level was going to increase soon.
"Fang Xingjian, this is what you get for offending me. You don't have the abilities, yet you snatched something you shouldn't have.
"I shall start by destroying that lousy armor of yours!"
As Rona spoke, countless flame clouds darted before Tyrant, forming a great wall of flames. Tyrant went headfirst through it and felt like a roasted pig that had entered an oven.
Even with the protection of the World-Engulfing Battle God Armor, he still felt as if his physical body was heated up to over 80 degrees. Thankfully, in such a short period of time, Rona was unable to summon too many flame clouds to block Tyrant's path. With a loud bang, Tyrant finally dashed out of the fire wall.
Philip said with a serious tone, "This lad has the reinforcement of the Hades Vault, and his powers are even a match for my actual form when in this place. Moreover, the energy here is almost endless, and we can't locate his actual body. We must hurry and escape from this place."
Tyrant said helplessly, "We may be cooked before we manage to get out of here."
Currently, Fang Xingjian was trying to attain the Divine level, and the Fourth Prince was receiving the Mystic Abyss Heavenly Emperor's legacy. As such, both of their bodies were being controlled by Tyrant and Philip respectively in the escape.
Watching as the two of them fled at a rapid speed, Rona thought coldly, 'Do you guys really think that you'll be able to escape?'
The two parties continued to be on the chase and on the escape, both sides at full explosive speed. They were returning at a speed that was over ten times faster than the speed they had used to come inside. After progressing for a few days, they managed to flee to the domain in the ninth level, and they finally arrived at the outermost layer of the Hades Vault.
However, Tyrant's current condition was extremely bad. The World-Engulfing Battle God Armor he wore was in a battered state, covered with charred burn marks and broken scales. The Four-Eyed Heavenly Winged Beast's Divine level consciousness, that was on the armor, was in an extremely weak state like a candlelight which might die out at any moment.
Both Fang Xingjian's body, that Tyrant was controlling, and the Fourth Prince's body were covered in blood. There were also patches of charred marks all over their bodies. Even the white light which Philip used to protect the Fourth Prince was only left with a faint layer.
After all, Philip had only sent 30% of his martial will. Moreover, even though the World-Engulfing Battle God Armor was a Divine Remains Equipment, it was impossible for it to withstand Rona's crazy attacks for a few consecutive days without any form of retaliation.
It could be said that it was already a miracle for the World-Engulfing Battle God Armor to have been able to sustain till now.
Faced with Rona's pursuit to kill them, both of them were in an extremely bad condition. If it had been said that at the beginning that they might still be able to fight for a few rounds against the fire giant, then in their currently weakened state, they were no longer any match for the fire giant at all.
