Chapter 711: The Clash between the Two Parties
Translator: Radiant Translations Editor: Radiant Translations
In the starry sky outside the Arcadia Flying Ship.
Bloodshed God-Emperor, Monarch Green, Pang Yi, Abyss Primogenitor, Primal Master and the other Rulers were watching from afar. Those from the Ancestor Mother Religion could permeate through the flying ship and see the battle happening. As the Cultivator Rulers were more erudite in their knowledge of the laws and profound mysteries, they were able to observe what was happening within easily. But ‘seeing’ was still ‘seeing. They were helpless against the law suppression that prevented them from entering.
“The battle has begun.” Primal Master stroke his mustache.
“The illusory realm could indeed curb the Ancestor Mother Religion. In an instant, 12 protectors succumbed.” Bloody Ruler Nile praised.
“They are only the weaker ones. it isn’t easy to deal with the remaining stronger ones.” Temporal Island Lord coldly retorted, “I hope they don’t lose that badly in this first battle.”
Bloodshed God-Emperor was deep in thoughts.
Their judgment was cold-blooded. They could discern the gap in combat power between both parties–it was an apparent, distinct gap!
“Your disciple is not bad.” Abyss Primogenitor had laughed, “It seems his improvement in the ‘Dao of Mirage’ is quite large.”
Temporal Island Lord quipped coldly, “It’s a pity that the Dao of Mirage is of limited help offensively.”
Bloodshed God-Emperor was just spectating. He was carefully collecting more information and analyzing the protectors from the Ancestor Mother Religion. After all, they lacked an understanding of the Ancestor Mother Religion. Since this was an actual large-scale battle, it was also the best occasion to gather more information.
Within the Arcadia Flying Ship, the Paragons and protectors that originated from the two different cosmos were starting to embroil in a frenzied battle. One was fighting for the sake of survival and wanted to conquer this cosmos. The other side was resisting against these outsiders. They were all fighting with their lives.
Heavenly Emperor of Great Destruction had struggled with the three Holy Protectors from the Ancestor Mother Religion. One could see how tyrannical that golden-haired monkey was. His two hairy palms were wantonly attacking; he was using his superiority of strength to force Heavenly Emperor of Great Destruction to resist with all his power too. The muscular man wielding the wooden pole was strong, yet he was somewhat moderate in strength compared to the golden-haired monkey. Still, he was able to suppress the Heavenly Emperor of Great Destruction. Furthermore, that pole technique of his was strange and unpredictable, inflicting great injuries on the back of Heavenly Emperor of Great Destruction when it struck.
A single hit and it injured him–Heavenly Emperor of Great Destruction’s expression turned ugly.
That venom-tailed girl was more sinister. Her tail rapidly elongated to several kilometers long and was like shackles snaking its way. The tip of the tail had a poison which Heavenly Emperor did not dare to parry with his body.
“Great Destruction.” A middle-aged man who was wearing azure green entered the foray. He was none other than ‘Monarch Hex Cricket’, and someone ranked after the Heavenly Emperor of Great Destruction.
Monarch Hex Cricket had a layer of faint green light covering his body. He went into the battle without weapons.
That muscular man smashed out his wooden pole with all his strength. Monarch Hex Cricket received the attack using his hands. He was forced two steps back with some black marks forming on his arm. However, following that, a green light appeared on the surface of his body, causing this injury to disappear.
“This Monarch Hex Cricket is weak in offense, but he is known to be undying. The three of us can’t injure him at all.” The golden-haired monkey transmitted a message, “Let’s forget about him. We’ll focus on Great Destruction.”
The three Holy Protectors were not willing to entangle themselves with Monarch Hex Cricket.
But Monarch Hex Cricket was doing his best to get into a tangle with them. He was trying his best to help Heavenly Emperor of Great Destruction.
Monarch Hex Cricket was known to be ‘undying’. That was not empty words. He was truly too powerful and heaven-shattering, and he had guarded the ‘Black Rain Eden’ single-handedly within the Six Heavenly Wheel, ensuing helplessness in the Ancestor Mother Religion! Even if others used all treasures to shatter his body, disintegrating his soul, he could still revive again. Such a life force would make even the Rulers envious.
With the help of Hex Cricket, Heavenly Emperor of Great Destruction could barely fight evenly with the three Holy Protectors, or at least he would not be downed in a few moves!
Kill! Kill! Kill!
The other Paragons were also fighting with the protectors.
There were three categories of protectors from Ancestor Mother Religion. First included those with tyrannical strength and speed. Second included those who could mutate their bodies or certain parts like their hair. They could even turn their hands into sharp weapons, or shoot out light with their eyes–these protectors were hard to deal with. The third type would be those who seemed weak physically, yet their bodies were still stronger than the Cultivator Paragons. All cultivators in the battlefield remained most vigilant against this group: “We must never let them get our fresh blood!”
Bloodshed God-Emperor had transmitted part of the intelligence to them.
It stated that the physically weak protectors from the Ancestor Mother Religion specialized in something called ‘Curses’. They required a medium like hair or bone to transmit their techniques. The best would naturally be the blood of the target! Do not see how weak they were in battle, the moment they got their hands on the blood of the other party, that was when they became the most significant threat.
On the side of the cultivators, they each had their varied techniques. Some had turned into lightning, some into flame, some into bamboo leaves, and as they battled, there would be arrays forming, domains binding, hex poison sneaking…
Regardless, they had a vast assortment of techniques that were apparently on a higher level.
“Hong hong hong~”
During the few instances they exchanged techniques, the battle outcome had turned in a definite direction.
The cultivators were almost entirely on the losing end!
“Die for me!” A protector from the Ancestor Mother Religion hacked out with the enormous stone ax in his hand. The expression of a cultivator changed as he saw that. He rapidly retreated and tried to defend against the attack, yet with a ‘hong’, his entire body had been cut by the stone ax. The force transmitted over destroyed his body into nothingness.
The apex protectors from the Ancestor Mother Religion specialized in simple suppressive combat techniques. That time, Xue Ying had been directly suppressed when he fought with Protector Huo Zhu!
Those apex protectors who can mutate their body could contain the Paragons with their strengths too. Furthermore, their attacks were more unpredictable.
Adding up the three Holy Protectors, there were a total of 32 apex protectors! Comparatively, how many apex Paragons did the Cultivator Cosmos have? Not even half of the other party! What was left were the ordinary Paragons, but the gap in power was too enormous. Some who were excellent in survival like ‘Leaf Saint’ could barely survive. Those who were weaker in survival capabilities were swept off cleanly.
And the apex Paragons like Paragon Huo Cheng, Bamboo Mountain Prefecture Master, Devil Phoenix, Mysterious North Imperial Empress could each kill an apex protector each, or even aid the other Paragons. But they did not have a clear advantage and were slightly stronger.
The battle between both parties…
Those from the cultivator’s side who held a superior advantage included Water Devil King, White Sovereign King, Bitter Cultivator, Purgatory Great Command and Xue Ying who had finally revealed his true strength!
“Kill!” Water Devil King’s body condensed into a stream of water. He was fierce and had a venomous trident in his hand.
He was attacking rampantly.
When the protectors struck him, Water Devil King’s body could turn into an endless stream of water, dissipating and condensing in another area. He would then attack another protector along the way. His body was one which even ‘Primal Master’ could not indeed extinguish. He could only imprison Water Devil King. Regarding offense, he was much stronger than Monarch Hex Cricket and was more brutal and vicious. Within a moment, a protector of the Ancestor Mother Religion was yelling for help.
A layer of blood currently surrounded the silver-white-armored handsome White Sovereign King’s body.
His body was like real and unreal. He would turn into a fog of blood, preventing those from the Ancestor Mother Religion to hit him. At the same time, he was displaying that terrifying sword technique of his. Every single strike contained an ultra-strong power. That time, he had heavily injured Xue Ying who had already cultivated the stage four Extreme Annihilation Mysterious Body armor. This sword technique was compelling, mystical and unpredictable at the same time. Those protectors could not defend against him.
“Hmph.” Bitter Cultivator was also fighting without weapons. He might seem thin and small, but he was physically strongest amongst Paragons. His strength was not any weaker than the apex protectors from the Ancestor Mother Religion. More importantly, every single fist of his contained laws and profound mysteries nearing the Ruler realm.
He punched out. Even those like Protector Huo Zhu who dared to resist his attack with his body would be forced to spurt blood while being pushed back.
One could see how violent he was when fighting. Each of the protectors was being blasted back by his punches, and none could obstruct him!
“Die.” A layer of flame covered the body of Purgatory Great Commander’s body. He wielded a spear. He had cultivated the Myriad Devil True Body too, and even though he was physically weaker slightly as compared to the apex protectors, the gap wasn’t significant. With how cunning his spear technique was, and the profundity of his realm, he had an armor that was strong in defense, preventing the apex protectors from contending against him.
Compared to the four experts mentioned above, Xue Ying who had cultivated the Dao of Mirage to the apex level was the most unpredictable one in the battlefield. His attack would come and go, and it brought great joy to the cultivators.
