Chapter 710: Annihilation
Translator: Radiant Translations Editor: Radiant Translations
Almost at the next moment, six out of the 51 protectors held on to their heads and howled grievously. Their eyes were burning in flames. This flame represented a burn on their souls. They were unable to resist the ‘Purgatory Reincarnation’, causing their souls to burn and dissipate directly. The other protectors might reveal a look of agony, but they had barely held on.
“Go.” Nightmare Sovereign let out soft laughter. This laughter had somehow transmitting into the mind of every protector.
Out of those protectors who survived through the Purgatory Reincarnation, there were two who formed a strange smile before entering deep sleep.
Xue Ying followed closely with his illusory realm.
Their techniques were disparate. Purgatory Great Commander’s ‘Purgatory Reincarnation’ was a technique based on the ‘Dao of Purgatory’ meant for offense. It directly targeted one’s soul, and the formation of the illusory realm was just a side-effect. Those who could not resist it would have their souls burning into ashes! ‘Nightmare Sovereign’s technique was a nightmare-related attack. He could control the soul of the enemies.
And Xue Ying’s ‘illusory realm’ formed a world that seemed real! This illusory world and the external world were two types of world. When the illusory realm descended, it would muddle the rationality of those souls, causing them to remain within the Mirage illusion for eternity.
“Hu hu hu~”
As the illusory realm was displayed, five protectors lost their bearings as they entered a deep sleep.
Those who employed the techniques, Purgatory Great Commander and Nightmare Sovereign glanced at Xue Ying with shock. They were clear that the first use of illusory realm would produce the most significant effect–six protectors fell to the technique. The second time it was employed, the outcome would be worse since six protectors with a weaker cultivation heart had died, leaving those with stronger cultivation hearts–two went into slumber from his technique. When the third illusory realm was displayed, it had, however, caused five to lose their bearings. This outcome startled them since Xue Ying could be the strongest one amongst them if comparing the technique of illusory realm.
Xue Ying was clear about this. He had spent many years cultivating, allowing him to accumulate much wisdom on the ‘Dao of Mirage’. Adding up the 600,000 years of comprehending the void array within the Black Gourd, he who was originally skillful with the Dao of Mirage had grasped quite a lot of usage from the ‘void array’ related to the Dao of Mirage. These gains naturally improved his understanding of the Dao of Mirage, allowing it to reach an apex level.
Purgatory Great Commander’s ‘illusory realm’ was only a side effect from his technique. Nightmare Sovereign was merely an ordinary Paragon! Xue Ying’s Dao of Mirage was uniquely designed for the illusory realm. He had also reached the apex realm, so it was nothing surprising for him to be the number one expert in this field.
“Monarch Dong bo acted last, yet he eliminated five protectors.”
“His illusory realm is more formidable than we expected.”
The Paragons on the side of the Cultivation Cosmos were able to conclude many points from this. It’s just that Xue Ying was too young, making everyone assume his illusory realm technique would be ordinary.
“Hong~” Devil Phoenix as part of the 36 Paragons, was currently wearing a luxurious deep violet gown. On her charming appearance, there was a pair of eyes that was presently emitting an air of murder. One could see many violet lights enshrouding the region of five billion kilometers wide. Many violet lights fluctuated within. They were like a violet sea, with every single violet light containing an offense that brought terror into the hearts of others.
All the protectors in the Ancestor Mother Religion had an unseen ripple protecting them. The one who covered them was none other than the golden-haired monkey, the venomous-tailed woman and the muscular man wielding a wooden rod. The ‘illusory realm technique’ targeted their souls directly. Thus, they could not protect their allies. But this domain attack by Devil Phoenix was easily resisted by them.
“Kill all of them!” The golden-haired monkey roared. He pushed his palm out, bringing a substantial destructive might with it as it swept towards the group of Paragons.
Filled with fury, the golden-haired monkey started sending killing moves almost instantaneously. His body was emitting golden light as his aura surged even fiercer. That palm filled with hair was rapidly becoming bigger. Every single hair on his palm was just like a huge tree. It seemed this palm aspired to smash all Paragons to death. Even the space near this palm was being warped, forming black holes.
The expressions of Xue Ying and the others changed.
Fighting one on 36? That seemed like a joke!
But Xue Ying and the others conceded that this was not a joke. That attack by the golden-haired monkey could match the might of a Ruler under ordinary circumstances. At this moment, he erupted with a forbidden move without care! That strengthened his power further, allowing it to reach an unfathomable stage. Even though the monkey was weaker regarding laws and profound mysteries, he could still withstand attacks directly such as the illusory realm by Xue Ying. But many ordinary Paragons would be entirely suppressed by the monkey’s technique for it had reached the level of Rulers!
He was also the one with the strongest power amongst the three Holy Protectors!
“Scram!” A roar accompanied that.
Heavenly Emperor of Great Destruction slashed out the black pole in his hand. He would usually not use any weapon to fight. But this time, he had used one. The weapon turned into a violet thunderclap.
“Hong long long~”
Heavenly Emperor of Great Destruction’s strength had reached the Ruler level. Even his grasp of laws and profound mysteries were close to that of the Rulers.
During the days when Pang Yi was low-profile, the public recognized Monarch Green as the strongest! He could genuinely fight against Rulers. Heavenly Emperor of Great Destruction was considered second. He was very close to the Ruler realm and could wrestle slightly with the Rulers. But over time, he would still be defeated.
As for the other Paragons? Water Devil King, White Sovereign King, Monarch Hex Cricket and others might be apex Paragons, but they could only survive in front of Rulers; they could not wrestle with them.
The long black pole tore apart everything and clashed against that hairy palm. The long pole slightly trembled and dissipated off the incoming force. Heavenly Emperor of Great Destruction was not disadvantaged. Instead, he continued killing his way over.
“Kill Great Destruction before sweeping off other Paragons.” The golden-haired monkey ordered.
“Kill!” The venom-tailed woman and the muscular man wielding pole did not hesitate to team up with the golden-haired monkey–they attacked Heavenly Emperor of Great Destruction together! They would at most be comparable with the Heavenly Emperor when fighting one-on-one. But if they were to work together, with how diversified their methods were, and the fact that they had much intelligence on Heavenly Emperor of Great Destruction gave them the certainty of killing him.
Within the base of Ancestor Mother Religion, inside the vast palace hall, the group of Religious Leaders was seated cross-legged watching the battle happen from a projection.
“They killed 12 protectors instantaneously. Six might have entered deep sleep, but they can’t support the rest currently.” A thin old man commented. It was tough for those who entered the illusory realm to ‘wake’. Religious Leaders who could do this could be counted with one’s finger, much less the protectors. They could only search for their real bodies located in their hometown cosmos before asking a Religious Leader to wake them up.
“That Dong Bo Xue Ying is the last to display his illusory technique, yet he caused five protectors to fall to his attack. He wasn’t that formidable that time at the Six Heavenly Wheel.”
These Religious Leaders were discussing among each other.
Indeed, when Xue Ying was at the Six Heavenly Wheel, he had merely dealt with a single protector using his illusory realm. But that time, he had opened the Dao of Mirage recently.
It had been close to 10 million years. Adding up his comprehension of the void array from the Black Gourd, and the fact that his Dao of Mirage had reached the limit, he was naturally stronger than the past!
The huge fanged-hunk said with a low tone, “I’ve just gotten news that we aren’t able to protect the six protectors assaulted by the Purgatory Reincarnation. Their true bodies have died–the souls were all burned to death.”
There was silence in that palace hall.
When Xue Ying and Nightmare Sovereign attacked, the actual bodies of the enemies would only enter a deep sleep if they could not withstand their illusory realms. However, when Purgatory Great Commander struck, if the enemies could not resist against it, the soul on both bodies would burn and dissipate.
“They died for their hometown and their race.” The huge fanged-hunk said solemnly, “Their death is valuable.”
A female Religious Leader said calmly, “This war has only just begun! Everything is for the sake of survival!”
