Chapter 1118: Game

Xue Ying did not care about these Primal Chaos devils at all. Even if he did not have a secret treasure with him, he could still easily kill tenth level experts. Furthermore, now that he had the ‘Devil Emperor Gown’, ‘Five Phase Beads’, and ‘Scarlet Cloud God Spear’ with him, Xue Ying was so much stronger than at his hometown Origin World. That was also the reason why he dared to hunt for devils in the Western Floating Nation.
As time passed, in the blink of an eye, it had been 50,000 years since Xue Ying arrived at the Western Floating Nation.
All the listed assassination missions were difficult to accomplish.
And Xue Ying was most confident of killing Devil Monarch Wind Moon. It’s a pity that the other party had hidden quite thoroughly.
‘I do not specialize in tracking. But if there is an expert from some other ancient nation that specialized in it who came here for the same reason as well, why did he not act? Unless nobody dares to set the Western Floating Nation as their target? I don’t believe this!’ Xue Ying thought. Of the listed missions, the bounties rewarded for targets in Western Floating Nation were considered relatively simple! Even though there were other experts in the ‘Black Devil Great Lake’ who were comparable in strength to those in the Western Floating Nation, the environment in the Black Devil Great Lake was vile and nasty. Few experts were willing to enter.
And other devils were gathered in the Moonflower Ancient Nation!
The Moonflower Ancient Nation and Sky Towering Ancient Nation were the two weakest great ancient nations amongst the six. There were even devils hiding within! Nonetheless, these devils were much harder to kill since most of them were seemingly under the protection of unparalleled existences! For the sake of reputation, the ancient nations did not publicly acknowledge this fact.
‘The devils in Western Floating Nation are comparatively easier to deal with.’ Xue Ying waited.
A horrifying fluctuation erupted from afar.
Xue Ying immediately turned towards the source–northwest of his location–using his perception of the essence of the void. He could clearly sense those ripples coming in that direction.
Xue Ying immediately relied on his Destructive Realm Teleportation technique to scout that location!
Looking from a distance…
Under the night sky, that was an ordinary-looking cavern-dwelling located outside the city. It was normal for experts to live in seclusion outside cities in some desolate lands. Deep in this cavern-dwelling, two figures started battling.
“Devil Monarch Wind Moon, die for me!”
That was a muscular male who had icy-white skin. He wielded a great hammer. The presence of that great hammer caused the void to shake. This was a secret treasure much more frightening than the ‘Cloud Sky Hammer’ which Xue Ying once saw in the past. This muscular male emanated a frost aura. With a wave of his hand, he sent an overwhelming strength into the great hammer, smashing it down furiously.
“Hua hua hua.” Facing him was a violet-haired demonic male. He had a total of 13 blades behind his back. Currently, those blades were spread apart in a fan shape.
And at the next moment, each blade started soaring out.
“Shua shua shua…”
Many layers of stacked blade lights surrounded that muscular male.
The great hammer was sent smashing over.
Countless blade lights were forced away.
“Hong! Hong! Hong!”
As the power from the great hammer was brought down, in the blink of an eye, it pushed away all blade lights and arrived before Devil Monarch Wind Moon.
The violet-haired demonic male ‘Devil Monarch Wind Moon’ turned pale and immediately retreated.
His speed of escape was fast! As he escaped, those blade lights shot back into the scabbards behind his back.
‘Devil Monarch Wind Moon.’ Xue Ying suppressed the wild excitement in his heart.
He had searched high and low for his target, only for him to emerge when he least expected it.
‘Brother Ancient Frost, I would have to thank you for this time.’ Xue Ying was raving with joy inwardly.
Great Monarch Ancient Frost.
He was a level-two Cosmos God from the Icy Snow Ancient Nation. Just like in the Summer Wind Ancient Nation, especially the core disciples of the Summer Clan, Cang Clan, and Fan Clan, as long as the disciple had become an experienced level-two Cosmos God, Emperor Summer, Ancestor Fan, and Emperor Cang would think of ways to bestow upon them with a top-graded secret treasure! If they could not find, they could always help refine it. That was why the Summer Wind Ancient Nation had so many Paragon Masters.
But the situation in Icy Snow Ancient Nation was worse.
Even though the Icy Snow Ancient Nation had three unparalleled existences, all of them were body cultivators! As a result, the peak cultivation techniques in their ancient nations were all for body cultivation. Thinking of cultivating in other techniques? They had to pay an enormous price and exchange them with other ancient nations! Even if they relied entirely on exchanging, how much could they exchange for?
As for weapons, the three old ancestors from the Icy Snow Ancient Nation did not know how to refine weapons, much less refining top-graded secret treasures. Hence, the only way they could acquire such treasures were to snatch from others!
But how could it be easy snatching a top-graded weapon from those who had them?
Most would have huge backing!
Hence, the situation in the Icy Snow Ancient Nation was quite pitiable. They had many second-level Cosmos Gods, but few Paragon Masters–only a total of seven!
Great Monarch Ancient Frost… in terms of strength and accumulations, he was extremely strong. He was unquestionably at the peak of level-two standard, and would definitely be bestowed with a top-graded secret treasure if he were a core member in the Summer Wind Ancient Nation. Nevertheless, being a member of the Icy Snow Ancient Nation, he did not own any top-graded secret treasure. Hence, many body cultivator experts from the Icy Snow Ancient Nation sought to enter the Realm Heart God Palace.
‘A group of monsters.’ Xue Ying mumbled inwardly.
The three old ancestors of the Icy Snow Ancient Nation had reached the final realm in body cultivation. All of them even corroborated with one another, resulting in the widespread circulation of body cultivation techniques within the Icy Snow Ancient Nation.
Currently, Xue Ying could teleport through a much greater distance. With a step, he left that small courtyard of his and arrived in this wilderness. He saw the escaping Devil Monarch Wind Moon.
Devil Monarch Wind Moon and Great Monarch Ancient Frost. One ran and the other chased. The latter had frozen the surrounding space, preventing his target from escaping easily.
‘Great Monarch Ancient Frost, you are too slow. It is impossible for you to catch up to him.’ Devil Monarch Wind Moon’s speed was much faster than Great Monarch Ancient Frost’s. Most likely after the time taken to brew a cup of tea, the congealed void region of Great Monarch Ancient Frost would no longer cover Devil Monarch Wind Moon.
Xue Ying held onto the Scarlet Cloud God Spear with one hand. At the same time, he maintained the pinnacle of void-ification, preventing both parties from discovering him.
At this moment, he was looking from afar. Xue Ying was not in a rush to get closer. Even though the void was congealed and he could not teleport over, he could still rely on the Scarlet Cloud God Spear to exhibit the ‘Scarlet Cloud Domain’. This was so much stronger than at his hometown Origin World–an entire level higher! If Xue Ying could bring the Scarlet Cloud God Spear back to his hometown, he could definitely distort the void and escape from Sacred Master easily even as the other party suppressed him using the Ancient Sacred World.
‘Devil Monarch Wind Moon, you can be considered a level-two Cosmos God, but what a pity.’ The edge of Xue Ying’s lips curved upwards. He immediately relied on the Devil Emperor Gown to execute his secret technique.
An unseen Mirage and Illusory Realm was sent over. This region easily covered the escaping Devil Monarch Wind Moon.
That was the frightening aspect of Xue Ying.
The Soul Dao was unlike other Dao paths. Those who were slightly stronger would only injure the other party slightly. Given how strong the life force powerful experts were, it was difficult to kill one. But the Dao of Soul was different… if a party could not withstand it, he would be doomed instantaneously!
Relying on the ‘Devil Emperor Gown’, Xue Ying’s soul technique had reached the level-two Cosmos God power. Even Southern Cloud King would have to divert part of his heart force to resist against it! And Devil Monarch Wind Moon who was flawed in his heart and spirit was the easiest target Xue Ying determined he could capture amongst the Four Vicious of the Western Floating. And experts in the Dao of Soul like him would have it so easy.
“Mn?” Xue Ying whose lips were originally edged upwards in a grin, suddenly froze. His eyes widened as he looked at Devil Monarch Wind Moon to the distance.
Devil Monarch Wind Moon suddenly stopped.
Eight pillars began rising from the ground in all directions. Each pillar was covered in brightly lit inscriptions. An immensely huge array covered a vast region. Under this frightening array fluctuation, Xue Ying’s figure that was hidden using the pinnacle of void-ification was forced apart. And Great Monarch Ancient Frost who was originally chasing after his target madly, turned and looked at the distant Devil Monarch Wind Moon with aghast. Furthermore, there was another gray-robed old man within this region of the huge array that was forced to show himself.
Devil Monarch Wind Moon had transformed. His appearance changed. It turned into water, and this stream of water soon condensed into a short and fat old man.
The short and plump old man looked at the distant Great Monarch Ancient Frost, the gray-robed old man and another white-robed young man who was forced to show himself.
“Great Monarch Ancient Frost from the Icy Snow Ancient Nation, Eagle City Master from the Myriad Realms Ancient Nation, and Monarch Flying Snow from the Southern Cloud Nation! What a pity that I have only hooked on three fishes.” The short and plump old man said with a booming voice, “If not for Monarch Flying Snow’s soul technique, I could have hooked more fish.”
The expressions on Xue Ying, Great Monarch Ancient Frost, and the gray-robed old man shifted.
This short and plump old man…
Was ‘Western Floating Old Ancestor’. He was extremely famous, and an absolute overlord in the Realm Heart Great Land!
Previously when Xue Ying executed his Mirage and Illusory Realm, he realized things were amiss when it failed to cause the other party to fall! It was impossible for Devil Monarch Wind Moon to resist his soul technique so easily.
‘He disguised himself as Devil Monarch Wind Moon, but previously, he had executed the Wind Moon Blade. Unless Western Floating Old Ancestor had cultivated the Dao of Wind to the Cosmos God Realm?’ Xue Ying immediately thought of it.
To the distant, Great Monarch Ancient Frost did not hesitate to escape. The gray-robed old man ‘Eagle City Master’ similarly disappeared with a flash. His speed of escape was extremely fast.
“Run.” Xue Ying held on his Scarlet Cloud God Spear and immediately executed the Scarlet Cloud Domain. “Shua, shua, shua”, he forcibly twisted the void. Every teleport took him more than 50 million kilometers away. He rapidly left, escaping at a speed much faster than Eagle City Master and Great Monarch Ancient Frost.
‘This Ying Shan Xue Ying is really quick at escaping.’ Great Monarch Ancient Frost felt envious and helpless at the same time. He could only fly slowly.
“Ying Shan Xue Ying from the Southern Cloud Nation?” Eagle City Master glanced at the white-robed young man that escaped rapidly.
The eyes of Western Floating Old Ancestor flashed coldly when he saw that, “Do you think it is that easy to hunt down experts from my Western Floating Nation? Since you dared to come, then be prepared to be killed! Die for me!”
The huge array was activated. It was like a wave. To the distant, another figure appeared. That was an enormous giant who pulled along a mountain with a single hand–he was the other Paragon Master expert from the Western Floating Nation, ‘Broken Sky Paragon Master’. Broken Sky Paragon Master was filled with killing intent at this moment.
