Chapter 742: Dong Bo Xue Ying’s Strongest Secret Technique
As Xue Ying stood there, countless bloody ripples spread out from the surface of his body in all directions. The blood ripples were like waves on the sea, surging and battering against the enemies regardless of whether they were in the sky or on the land!
Many of the Red Devil God-Emperor incarnations, which were originally attacking Xue Ying, trembled after coming into contact with the bloody ripples and subsequently dissipated. The bodies of the incarnations were able to match the strength of apex protectors from the Ancestor Mother Religion, yet against the bloody ripples, they were helpless! The bloody ripples continued rapidly spreading outwards. That scene shocked Red Devil God-Emperor to the core!
“What, this, how could this be possible?” Red Devil God-Emperor was so frightened that he started retreating in a hurry.
“Sou sou sou.”
He was swiftly retreating backward.
Xue Ying stood there. The bloody ripples were spreading outwards in all directions. The region it covered was continuously expanding– 500 kilometers, 5,000 kilometers, and more– this had frightened the eldest prince ‘Jiao Yun Teng’ and his Paragon protectors so much, that they too were retreating as far as they could.
Only after the region spread to a distance of more than a few ten thousands kilometers did Xue Ying temporarily stop expanding it.
“”What is this move?”
“Why is it so powerful, that even the incarnations of Red Devil God-Emperor were instantaneously killed?” Third Prince Jiao Yun Liu and other protectors were extremely stunned. Protector Shan Dan did not even dare imagine that this Paragon, whom he had casually pulled over in the past… would be this horrifying! This blood ripple domain he displayed has utterly suppressed all the incarnations of the Red Devil God-Emperor. Such a technique was definitely at the Ruler level.
His Highness Jiao Yun Liu was both surprised and thrilled. “Has the tide really turned in my favor, for an existence like Dong Bo to end up as my protector?”
But he did not know that with Xue Ying’s temper, if not for the Third Highness’ sincerity towards his protectors, along with Xue Ying’s urgent need for references to other cultivation systems, it would not have been so simple to have Xue Ying agree to be his protector.
Xue Ying stood high in the sky, looking at that fearful Red Devil God-Emperor, who was hiding beyond the region covered by the bloody ripples.
“What, Red Devil God-Emperor, are you frightened? So frightened that you don’t even dare to enter the domain that I released?” Xue Ying chuckled. “If you are afraid, then you will be unable to obtain the Black Devil Sacred Fruits.”
In the distance, Eldest Highness Jiao Yun Teng felt anxious.
If they did not defeat this terrifying existence ‘Protector Dong Bo’ who had popped out from nowhere, how could he get those Black Devil Sacred Fruits from his little brother?
“Red Devil God-Emperor.” The Eldest Highness Jiao Yun Teng glanced at him.
The Red Devil God-Emperor was instead looking at Xue Ying with his lone eye.
The dignity of being a Ruler did not allow him to tolerate retreating in front of a Paragon.
“I don’t believe that the domain of a Paragon can kill me.” Red Devil God-Emperor flew towards the blood domain with a look of indifference. As he moved closer, his hand was naturally the first to come into contact with the blood domain.
The blood domain spontaneously expanded, enveloping Red Devil God-Emperor in the blink of an eye.
Red Devil God-Emperor’s expression changed slightly as he looked at Xue Ying, who seemed to be smiling, yet at the same time, not smiling. The God-Emperor did not say anything. He felt the formless bloody ripples corrode his own law domain and permeate into his body, affecting it. Furthermore, the bloody ripples were continuously entangling him, and the strangest thing was, no matter how much Red Devil God-Emperor tried to move of fly around, the restriction on his movement was constantly increasing, and his internal injuries were gradually becoming more severe.
The Red Devil God-Emperor immediately recalled an absolute art recorded in one of the cultivation systems which he had once seen.
“Slaughter Domain?” Red Devil God-Emperor stared with shock at Xue Ying in the distance.
“It can’t be considered as the true Slaughter Domain. Its power is still lacking.” Xue Ying chuckled.
“What, Slaughter Domain?”
“The Cosmos Emissary Cultivation System’s Slaughter Domain?”
In the distance, the princes and all the Paragons felt a chill in their hearts.
The Cosmos Emissary Cultivation System enabled the cultivator, upon breaking through the Ruler level, to utilize the cosmos origin energy with every move, to frightening effect. Within this system, the Slaughter lineage had a legend: the legend of the “Slaughter Domain”. According to the system, to create the Slaughter Domain, one had to be at least a Ruler, and be able to control the slaughter energy within the cosmos origin.
Within the Slaughter Domain, any enemies would die the moment they entered! Even if extremely powerful enemies could stay alive, their injuries would continuously worsen the moment they entered! At the same time, they would be restricted by the Slaughter Domain, and this restriction would increase over time as well. Furthermore, the one in control of the Slaughter Domain would have an increased combat power within the Domain. With all these factors, even the strongest Rulers would have a guaranteed death!
Naturally, this was just in theory!
Because none were able to control the cosmos origin energy within the ‘Devil Mountain Cosmos’.
“How is he able to succeed in using the Slaughter Domain?”
“Our cosmos was created by the primogenitor. Thus, it is impossible to control the cosmos origin energy!” The two princes were filled with disbelief. The protectors were also dazed.
However, Xue Ying clearly understood why.
Earlier on, when he discovered the Cosmos Emissary Cultivation System’s Slaughter lineage, it was extremely beneficial to him. He then requested for His Highness to collect the absolute arts of a similar type. He continually expanded his knowledge and understanding of the ‘Dao of Slaughter’ by researching and analyzing other techniques. During this process, Xue Ying was able to analyze these absolute arts from the perspective of the Laws and Profound Mysteries. He was able to discover other Daos encompassed within those arts like the Dao of Ripple, Dao of Flame, Dao of Destruction among others.
Evidently, within the Cosmos Emissary Cultivation System, everything that was beneficial towards Slaughter had been fused together. This was unlike Xue Ying’s home cosmos” system of Laws and Profound Mysteries, which had clearly defined categories.
Xue Ying discovered that the ‘Slaughter Domain’ was actually comprised the Dao of Slaughter and the Dao of Ripple! Within the Cosmos Cultivation system, there were many arts which utilized the Dao of Ripple. He was able to deepen his understanding of the Ripple over time after researching and referencing a multitude of absolute arts.
During the 10 million years he spent in his original cosmos, he had opened the Dao of Mirage and Dao of Slaughter.
And in the 30 million years spent in this cosmos, Xue Ying had opened his third Dao–the Dao of Ripple! Furthermore, he had improved his grasp on the Dao of Ripple to the pinnacle and was close to reaching the limiting bottleneck.
The Dao of Slaughter fused with the Dao of Ripple! Using the perspective from the Laws and Profound Mysteries system to dissect and analyze this ‘Slaughter Domain’ technique, he then completely reconstructed and perfected it! Over the long years, Xue Ying was able to finally create his strongest secret technique in the last 30 million years–Slaughter Domain! Even though it could not compare with the actual version, Xue Ying believed that it was only because his Daos had yet to reach eternity.
The moment he reached eternity in the Daos, his ‘Slaughter Domain’ would undergo a qualitative change! The Cosmos Emissary system’s ‘Slaughter Domain’ was formidable because the user formed it using cosmos origin energy. However, Xue Ying’s ‘Slaughter Domain’ relied primarily on the laws. The stronger the laws, the stronger the technique.
‘Within the Slaughter Domain, my strength is much higher.’ Xue Ying chuckled. He carried the spear with one hand and casually waved it.
Cut! Jab! Sweep! Poke! Draw! Coil!
He then displayed his techniques as he wished, resonating with the ripples within the Slaughter Domain to attack Red Devil God-Emperor from all directions! His attacks felt as if they had been released in close range. It was truly unpredictable and mystical.
“I do not believe that as a Ruler, your strength is only as such. Bring out your true strength.” Xue Ying coldly declared. In this fight, his victory or defeat was secondary; the most important objective would be to use this match to test his current abilities!
“If you don’t bring out something stronger, you will lose.” Xue Ying’s voice reverberated.
In the distance, the two princes and their protectors were all staring in a daze.
A Paragon dared to act so rampantly? Xue Ying had the upper hand, yet he still wished for the other party to bring out a stronger power? Wasn’t that too arrogant of him?
“Very good, very good.” The Red Devil God-Emperor was also enraged. He roared, “I came to the Devil Mountain Cosmos for the sake of tempering myself. Who would have thought that you could force me to reveal my strongest power? Very good, very good…”
His single eye suddenly turned snowy-white.
It was a vast expanse of whiteness!
A severe chill rapidly spread out and covered the entire place. Some of the arrays had even started to break after being frozen by this chill. His Highness Jiao Yun Liu and the other protectors were hiding in his palace, peering at this scene.
The bloody Slaughter Domain was still rolling and fluctuating, albeit at a much slower pace. It had been suppressed.
Xue Ying’s body seemed to be corporeal, yet it also seemed to be ethereal. Despite that, he was able to feel that terrifying chill permeating into the Mirage World and into his body.
“It seems that it isn’t easy to defeat a Ruler.” Xue Ying looked at the distant Red Devil God-Emperor. A layer of white armor had formed around the Red Devil God-Emperor’s body, and his aura had become much stronger.
“The last time I unleashed this strongest power of mine was when the Devil Mountain Cosmos conquered my hometown.” Red Devil God-Emperor shouted in rage. “Since a Paragon like you wishes to die, then I’ll gladly send you to meet your maker!”
Red Devil God-Emperor was truly gone berserk.
Witnessing this scene, however, a smirk formed on Xue Ying’s lips.
