The waves of water shot into the sky and revealed an extremely vast screen of light, and it was like a picture scroll that covered the skies and was suffused with blazing Immortal Energy. As soon as it appeared, it illuminated the entire heavens and the earth brightly!
When looked at carefully, this picture scroll was formed by eight drawings of swords, and every single drawing of the swords revealed an Immortal Sword and a magnificent scenery.
One of the Immortal Swords was like a pillar of flames that was connected to the sky and covered in surging and blazing lava that raged violently.
One was like a furious dragon rising from the water, causing violent waves to sweep through the sky
One was like a mountain that held up the sky and guarded the heavens and the earth.
One was like the everchanging wind and roamed the universe.
The eight drawing of swords revealed eight scenes, and when they were positioned together, sword lights shot out violently into the sky, causing even the heavens and the earth to be cast under a shadow!
All the cultivators nearby the river shaped like the character '道' were alarmed, and their faces revealed shocked expressions.
"Has a battle broken out? I seem to have seen a figure being swept into that terrifying sword drawing earlier!"
"This seems to be the Universal Devil Suppression Sword Formation from one of the 10 great immortal sects, the Heavenflow Dao Sect!"
Exclaims of shock resounded out while the nearby cultivators revealed heavy expression as they looked at the eight sword drawings that floated in midair and flowed with Immortal Energy, and they were exceedingly shocked.
Swoosh! Swoosh! Swoosh!
Right at this moment, three figures suddenly flashed out from the surface of the water, and it was a young woman, a middle aged man, and an old man.
The young woman wore a luxurious robe, had an exquisite and gorgeous appearance, a graceful and tall figure, a red mark between her brows, and eyes that were like a sky blue ocean, causing her to possess unusual and striking beauty.
The middle aged man had a tall figure, a dignified expression, and his body flowed with Immortal Energy.
The old man wore a black robe, and he was gaunt like a bamboo, yet was the most unfathomable, causing everyone to be unable to help but feel a wisp of indescribable terror from glancing at him from afar.
These three people were Leng Chan'er, Wen Tianshuo, and Elder Yun Zhu, a terrifying existence whose cultivation had attained the 6th level of the Earthly Immortal Realm long ago.
After Wen Tianshuo disguised himself, his appearance had changed greatly, so there had been no one that had seen through his disguise for now, whereas the identity of Leng Chan'er and Elder Yun Zhu was quickly seen through.
After all, amongst the two of them, one was a genius of the Heavenflow Dao Sect's younger generation, and the other was a terrifying great figure at the 6th level of the Earthly Immortal Realm. So how could they possibly be overlooked by the others?
"Fellow Daoists present here today, my Heavenflow Dao Sect has set up the Universal Devil Suppression Sword Formation here for the sake of killing an evil villain. I'm sorry for the disturbance, and I hope all of you can be understanding." Leng Chan'er stood proudly at the bank of the river while her clothes fluttered with the wind. Her beautiful hair flowed down like a waterfall, and every single move she made carried the composed bearing that belonged to someone in a high position.
Everyone was extremely shocked in their hearts when they heard this. On one hand, they'd finally confirmed the identities of Leng Chan'er and the others, and they knew that Leng Chan'er and the others were great figures from the Heavenflow Dao Sect. On the other hand, they were shocked by that 'evil villain' she spoke of.
Who exactly is he to actually cause so many great figures of the Heavenflow Dao Sect to be deployed, and they even utilized such a terrifying weapon like the Universal Devil Suppression Sword Formation?
The Universal Devil Suppression Sword Formation was truly too famous and was renowned for its ferociousness. Every single sword drawing was an Immortal Artifact, and when the eight sword drawings were joined together, they were an extremely terrifying Immortal Formation!
According to rumor, this formation was possessed by the Sect Master of the Heavenflow Dao Sect, and it had been passed down for a few tens of thousands of years. The Heavenflow Dao Sect had relied on this formation to annihilate countless powerful and monstrous fiends.
Moreover, the requirements to execute this formation was similarly harsh. It required eight experts at the Earthly Immortal Realm or above to be deployed and respectively take charge of one of the sword drawings. Once the enemy fell into the formation, it was like being trapped within a world that was cut off from the outside world, and the enemy would suffer boundless suppression and killing intent, causing the consequences of falling into the formation to be unimaginable.
Presently, the Heavenflow Dao Sect has actually utilized such a great weapon, so exactly how formidable is the strength of this 'evil villain' they are dealing with?
At the very least…it's at the Earthly Immortal Realm, right?
"Fellow Daoists, I presume all of you have heard that this sword formation seals up the heavens and the earth, and it forms a world of its own. So long as the enemy remains, the formation will stand. Moreover, one will be swept in so long as one approaches it. So, it's better for everyone to stay on the spot, so as to avoid being affected." Right when the hearts of everyone were filled with surprise and bewilderment, Leng Chan'er spoke indifferently with a voice that faintly carried a warning tone.
"It wouldn't be Chen Xi within it, right?" Someone seemed to have thought of something and exclaimed with shock.
As soon as these words were spoken, every single person present here was shocked, and they suddenly recalled that Chen Xi had appeared in the Corona City's Marquis Wen's Estate this morning and had annihilated eight great sinners at the Earthly Immortal Realm with a cultivation at the Nether Transformation Realm!
Even though less than a day had passed since this incident occurred, the cultivation world had long since fallen into extremely great shock because of this.
Moreover, it was common knowledge that because Chen Xi had slaughtered Yan Shisan and competed with Bing Shitian, he was like fire and water with the Heavenflow Dao Sect, and they were in a state of irreconcilable enmity that wouldn't end without the death of the other part.
Now, numerous Earthly Immortal Realm experts of the Heavenflow Dao Sect had suddenly made an appearance in the Sky Dao Abandoned Mountain and utilized the Universal Devil Suppression Sword Formation with the intention of dealing with an evil villain. How could they not suspect that this evil villain was Chen Xi?
Instantly, the expressions of everyone present here became slightly anxious and doubtful.
They were clearly aware that if it really was Chen Xi being trapped within the Universal Devil Suppression Sword Formation now, then the two extraordinary powers, Heavenflow Dao Sect and the Nine Radiance Sword Sect, would surely enter into war!
After all, this character the Heavenflow Dao Sect revealed was truly too despicable.
Right at this moment, the gaunt and bony Elder Yun Zhu who wore a black robe and stood by Leng Chan'er's side suddenly straightened his backbone before raising his eyes to sweep everyone present here with his gaze.
At this instant, an extremely terrifying aura swiftly suffused the entire heavens and the earth, and it was like a god had awakened from its slumber. Everywhere it looked, the heavens and earth were filled with terror!
The expressions of everyone froze on their faces because a wisp of coldness that felt as if they'd fallen into an icy pit couldn't be refrained from arising in their hearts when they were swept by this gaze.
"Guessing rashly will only bring harm to yourself!" Elder Yun Zhu spoke indifferently before withdrawing his gaze and recovering his composed appearance from before.
Everyone felt fearful in their hearts when they heard this, and they didn't dare continue gossiping away.
Leng Chan'er couldn't help but grin when she saw this, and then she sent a voice transmission to Elder Yun Zhu. "Martial Uncle Yun Zhu, there are eight Martial Uncles taking charge within the Universal Devil Suppression Sword Formation, and another five Martial Uncles have even formed the Grand Five Elements Heavenflow Slaughter Formation. With two formations overlapping each other, it ought to be sufficient to annihilate Chen Xi, right?"
Elder Yun Zhu thought for a moment and replied with a single sentence. "Wait silently for the good news."
This was a ghastly world. The ground was vast yet barren, and it was filled with an extremely sharp and murderous aura.
Chen Xi had already recovered his calm from his initial terror.
He already knew that he'd fallen for Wen Tianshuo's deceit this time, and it had caused him to fall into a trap that had been lying in ambush here for a long time.
Very good, I rescued the lives of everyone within your Marquis Wen's Estate, but you repaid kindness with enmity and joined forces with others to entrap me. You're really heedless of consequences… Chen Xi gritted his teeth while his heart was filled with flames of rage. But in next to no time, he couldn't be bothered to be furious because he noticed that the aura of this expanse of the heavens and the earth was actually completely separated from the outside world!
In other words, unless he was able to slash apart the confinement of this world, otherwise, even if he shouted to the point his throat tore apart, not a single sound would be heard in the outside world.
The Universal Devil Suppression Sword Formation… This seems to be a renowned weapon of slaughter of the Heavenflow Dao Sect, and it's formed from eight Immortal Artifact sword drawings… Instantly, Chen Xi understood how adverse his circumstances were. Wen Tianshuo had actually colluded with the members of the Heavenflow Dao Sect with the intention of utilizing the Universal Devil Suppression Sword Formation to annihilate him.
Obviously, he'd already fallen into the confinements of this sword formation!
At this moment, even Chen Xi had no choice but to admire the ability of the person that set up the trap to deal with him this time. The person had first utilized Wen Tianshuo's treasure map as bait to draw him out, and then set up an ambush within the river before suddenly making a move. It seemed to be simple and ordinary, yet its advantage was that it took him by surprise.
They neither chose to attack him along the way nor to make a move after he entered the river nor make a move at one of the dangerous points indicated on the treasure map, and they just happened to have chosen the moment he was about to enter the river to make a move. It seemed to be the most sloppy and ordinary location, but it was the most capable of attaining the effect of taking him by surprise.
Swish! Swish! Swish!
Five rays of light suddenly descended from the sky, and they formed a five elemental formation in the shape of a plum blossom, causing them to seem like a blazing circle that descended down with a sharp aura that shot into the sky.
They were five old men with fluttering sleeves. Every single one of them held Immortal Swords while their bodies were coiled with Immortal Energy, and they moved as if they were a whole and formed a piercingly cold, peerless, and exquisite slaughter formation.
The Grand Five Element Heavenflow Slaughter Formation? Chen Xi's eyes narrowed as he dodged repeatedly. Never had he imagined that these old goats from the Heavenflow Dao Sect would find it insufficient to just utilize the Universal Devil Suppression Sword Formation, and they'd even encased another formation within the formation to form another slaughter formation. Obviously, they intended to use absolute strength to annihilate him here.
"Vile spawn! Kneel down and receive your death!" Right when Chen Xi hadn't moved very far away, numerous tall and mighty figures suddenly surged out from all directions once more, and they respectively stood in the positions of Sky, Ground, Wind, Water, Fire, Mountain, Marsh, and Lightning in the eight trigrams and obstructed all his paths of retreat.
They seemed to reveal an approach of causing him to have nowhere to dodge before exterminating him ruthlessly.
This group of Earthly Immortal Realm experts similarly held Immortal Swords in their hands, and the attribute revealed by the Immortal Swords in their hands varied according to the positions they stood on.
For example, the Earthly Immortal Realm expert that stood on the position of Fire held an Immortal Sword with a flaming glow that shot into the sky. As the saying goes, the trigram of Li had a mutually promoting relationship with fire, and the karmic luck of fire was held within it.
The other Earthly Immortal Realm experts were just like this as well. Even though they stood at different positions, they cooperated with each other from a distance and formed a unique connection that fused their auras together, causing them to become a whole that was extremely terrifying.
On the other hand, regardless of it was the Grand Five Element Heavenflow Slaughter Formation or the Universal Devil Suppression Sword Formation, both of them were led by the yellow robed old man that stood in the 'Kun' position.
The trigram of Kun represented ground. It resided in the center and commanded the surroundings, and it was a central and crucial point.
Moreover, this position furtively conformed with the element of Earth in the five elements, and it was like a single whole, causing the yellow robed old man to easily control two slaughter formations!
The person that shouted at Chen Xi earlier was precisely this yellow robed old man as well. He had a lean appearance, and a strand of a long beard beneath his chin. His sleeves fluttered while he emanated a sage-like aura, and he seemed to be filled with a sense of righteousness.
"13 experts with equivalent cultivations at the 3rd level of Earthly Immortal Realm, it is indeed capable of bringing forth the greatest lethality from these two grand formations. Looks like Bing Shitian really exhausted a great deal of resources this time." Chen Xi placed his hands behind his back, and he stopped dodging and stood silently at the center.
His eyes swept the surroundings with his gaze before descending onto the yellow robed old man in the end, and then a wisp of deep ridicule suffused the corners of his mouth. "You group of old dogs, aren't you ashamed of yourselves? You mobilized so many people to deal with me and even used a trap to ambush me, yet you still act so righteous? You've really lost face for your superior. Have all of you lived so long for nothing?"
