Chapter 812: Famed All Over
"What?" Blood Fiend Sect and Flaming Sun Island defeated Illusory Demon Sect, and heavily injured Wen Bin and Chu Miaodan?!"
When Jiang An, Black Voodoo Cult's pope, heard the Gongye brothers' report, he couldn't help but change expression, and his eyes showed great bewilderment.
"This subordinate also found it hard to believe but it is the truth. Our spies were present from beginning to end, they saw the details of the battle clearly, they are absolutely not wrong."
Gongye Zhuo bowed slightly. His expression was grave, and his mind was awind.
Black Voodoo Cult and Illusory Demon Sect were the Silver rank forces of the Heavenly Slaughter Continent, and they were not far from the Setting Sun Islands. Consequently, they paid close attention to that battle.
When Illusory Demon Sect gave the Setting Sun Islands the time limit of three days, Black Voodoo Cult already received news and was closely observing further developments.
When Qin Lie and Xue Li charged out of the Setting Sun Islands towards where Illusory Demon Sect was gathered, their spies reached the Pan Family's island first in order to observe the situation.
In other words, Black Voodoo Cult saw the battle clearly, and in the moment victory was decided, they passed the news back to the cult.
"Narrate the whole battle, do not miss any detail!" Jiang An ordered.
The Gongye brothers hurriedly reported all the information they obtained, including many details.
Jiang An listened silently.
A moment later, Jiang An's eyes showed a fearful light. "Six strange entities that can damage Soul Altars?"
"Yes, the six beings were why Qin Lie was able to reverse the situation." Gongye Qing's expression was solemn. "Originally, the eight god corpses were exhausted. They couldn't pose a threat to Wen Bin. Suddenly, these six mysterious beings came out of Qin Lie. When they appeared, they charged into Wen Bin and Chu Miaodan's Soul Altars, frightening them. Then, a short moment later, Wen Bin and Chu Miaodan seemed to be injured. They hurriedly finished the battle and fled in fear."
"Beings that can damage Soul Altars are extremely terrifying. For us, it is an unimaginable threat." Gongye Zhuo sighed.
"Illusory Demon Sect is in great trouble this time."
Jiang An rubbed his chin. He leaned against a withered cane, his eyes deep as though countless malicious plans were brewing within.
"Yu Lingwei is leading her loyal subordinates and disciples to fight against the Blue Ghoul Race. As of now, the situation hasn't been stabilized. At this time, if Wen Bin and Chu Miaodan could heavily injure Blood Fiend Sect and take in Gray Island with its artificers, they could obtain a great amount of Blazing Profound Bombs. Maybe, they could have saved Illusory Demon Sect from its predicament."
"Alas, they lost."
"Wen Bin and Chu Miaodan are wounded, Yu Lingwei cannot split herself. This is the best time to attack Illusory Demon Sect."
The eyes of the Gongye brothers lit up.
"No." Jiang An knew what they thought and shook his head. He said, "We cannot fight with Illusory Demon Sect when the three great ghoul races are invading. Only after the three ghoul races had been defeated can we take the opportunity to attack Illusory Demon Sect."
"Understood." The Gongye brothers nodded in regret.
"Tell the three families about the news that the Setting Sun Islands defeated Illusory Demon Sect. Let them understand." Jiang An hesitated and then said, "Restrain our disciples, tell them not to go to the Setting Sun Islands frequently, and try their best not to start any conflicts."
"As you wish."
"Qin Lie and the others actually won?"
At Terminator Sect, Xu Ran, Tong Zhenzhen, Lei Yan, and Shen Kui were astounded when they received the news.
"How did they win?" Xu Ran dazedly looked towards Shen Yue.
Shen Yue described the situation in detail.
"Six strange beings? Suddenly charged into Wen Bin and Chu Miaodan's Soul Altars? What are those things?" Lei Yan stilled for a while before he suddenly said, "Are they the Spirits of Void and Chaos?"
Only a rare number of forces in the Land of Chaos knew about wondrous beings like the Spirits of Void and Chaos. Because Terminator Sect was close to the Asura Race, he knew a bit about the wonders of the Spirits of Void and Chaos from Hei Shite.
But their understanding was pretty shallow.
"Spirits of Void and Chaos?! Qin Lie has Spirits of Void and Chaos?!" Xu Ran couldn't help but shout.
Tong Zhenzhen paled.
"You... know about the abilities of Spirits of Void and Chaos?" Lei Yan couldn't help but ask.
"I heard Zhenzhen speak of them." Xu Ran turned to look at his wife, his expression becoming extremely stern and solemn. "If the Spirits of Void and Chaos reach rank six, they can invade Soul Altars that are out of the sea of consciousness, eat five element essences from Soul Altars as well as spirit materials of similar element as them. In those places with Gold rank forces, the Spirits of Void and Chaos are also called 'Soul Altar devourers'. These are terrifying demons for all high-level beings. Any race that can create a Soul Altar in their cultivation fears this entity."
When the words were said, Lei Yan, Shen Kui, and Shen Yue's expressions changed.
"Tell me about Qin Lie and the Spirits of Void and Chaos." Tong Zhenzhen looked at Lei Yan.
Lei Yan did not hesitate, and narrated the events of when Qin Lie had been at the Setting Sun Islands, and Hei Shite had felt the Spirits of Void and Chaos and tried to take them from Qin Lie.
"Hei Shite is the strongest of the Asura Race, it is normal that he knows secrets of the Spirits of Void and Chaos." Tong Zhenzhen nodded inwardly and said, "According to Hei Shite, Qin Lie's Spirits of Void and Chaos should have been in their infancy, the weakest fifth stage. Rank five Spirits of Void and Chaos should not have the ability to invade Soul Altars. It seems that his Spirits of Void and Chaos had evolved up a level over two years, so Wen Bin and Chu Miaodan suffered great losses when caught offguard."
"Aunt Tong, you know a lot of the Spirits of Void and Chaos. Could you tell us in detail about them?" Shen Yue requested.
Tong Zhenzhen looked at the anticipatory group. She shook her head and said apologetically, "I once swore to protect our secrets. There are things I cannot share details of."
"So that's how it is." Shen Yue nodded and didn't ask any more.
"Zhenzhen is not from the Land of Chaos, the place she lived before... is very special, it isn't in the Spirit Realm." Xu Ran vaguely explained. "When she came out, she swore to not betray some of their rules."
Lei Yan and Shen Kui nodded in understanding.
"I can only tell you, if you ever encounter Spirits of Void and Chaos, do not ever let your Soul Altar out of your sea of consciousness!" Tong Zhenzhen warned them.
"Soul Altars devourers. Just this name is enough to make Soul Altar experts feel terrified. When I see Qin Lie again, I will not release my Soul Altar!" Lei Yan inhaled deeply with great wariness in his eyes.
"Blood Fiend Sect and Flaming Sun Island won against Illusory Demon Sect?"
"Wen Bin and Chu Miaodan were both wounded?"
"Wen Bin was completely occupied by the eight god corpses. Six mysterious beings damaged Wen Bin and Chu Miaodan's Soul Altars?
"Illusory Demon Sect lost greatly in this battle. Wen Bin and Chu Miaodan immediately went into seclusion after returning."
"A dozen of Flaming Sun Island's Blazing Profound Bombs jointly exploded and killed thousands of Illusory Demon Sect members!"
Heavenly Sword Mountain, the three families, Celestial Artifact Sect, Ten Thousand Beast Mountain, and other Silver rank forces, as well as many Copper rank forces and almost a thousand Black Iron rank forces were discussing this astounding matter.
In this period of time, because of the invasion of the three ghoul races, the Land of Chaos's information flowed freely. They paid close attention to the situation in the world.
The battle between Illusory Demon Sect and the Setting Sun Islands was naturally the center of attention.
In the past, in the minds of many people, the Setting Sun Islands and Illusory Demon Sect were close, and should be secret allies.
No one had expected Illusory Demon Sect would suddenly gather their forces to attack the Setting Sun Islands. This complete reversal immediately attracted everyone's attention.
What stunned people the most was the fact that Illusory Demon Sect was the loser!
The world was stunned, and the major forces were investigating for the details of the battle.
Qin Lie, Xue Li, eight god corpses, Blazing Profound Bombs, six strange beings, these names were repeatedly mentioned.
The result of this was the continuous growth of the price of Blazing Profound Bombs, and many forces which had set their sights on Flaming Sun Island quickly let go of their ambitions. Instead, they started to throw olive branches at Flaming Sun Island.
Two days later.
Qin Lie, Song Tingyu, Lang Xie, and others returned from the former Pan Family's island.
Xue Li and the martial practitioners of Blood Fiend Sect returned after chasing Illusory Demon Sect for a whole day and night, making them pay an even greater price.
"Qin Lie. Tomorrow, Eclipse Sun Island, Heavenly Snake Island, Scarlet Cloud Island and other top forces will come to discuss partnership." Song Tingyu walked down the Flowing Gold Fire Phoenix and said.
"I need to go into seclusion for a period of time," said Qin Lie with a frown on his face.
"Oh, then cultivate well. Leave the matters of the island to me." Song Tingyu nodded gently and said, "As long as your own strength increases, the future of Flaming Sun Island will became even steadier."
"Thank you," Qin Lie said warmly.
Song Tingyu smiled. "Seeing Flaming Sun Island grow day by day gives me a great feeling of accomplishment."
"It's the same for me." Qin Lie nodded with a smile.
A moment later, he entered the palace on Flaming Sun Island that belonged to him. He sat inside a vast cultivation room and started to organize what he had learned from this battle.
Ring of the Burning Sun, blaze divine fire, blaze divine blood, Profound Thunder Heart, Spirits of Void and Chaos, and other secret spirit arts, as well as the string of events. He needed to carefully think it all over.
Sitting still, electricity arced across his body, as he slowly explored his body.
"Zzzt zzt zzzt!"
A long blade suddenly appeared on his knees. His hands were electrified as he slowly caressed his blade.
Like mercury, the threads of electricity permeated the longblade named "Thunder Soul."
"Boom boom boom!
A long rumble of thunder exploded out of the blade. In that moment, countless bolts of electricity shot out and roamed around the long blade.
"Whoosh whoosh whoosh!"
Qin Lie stood up with the blade. He moved with Thunder Soul in the cultivation room. His soul used the manipulation of thunder and lightning to comprehend Thunder Conception's wonders.
In the previous battle, he entered a wondrous state at a crucial time. As his thoughts changed, the thunder in his head roared savagely.
The explosive destruction inside his mind caused him to have a deeper understanding of thunder and lightning.
Right now, he was going to re-enter that state and deepen his comprehension of thunder power.
