Chapter 768: Black Gourd
The Black Bird on the shoulder of Bloodshed God-Emperor suddenly expanded. It covered the upper sky and was more than 10 million times bigger than a planet. Bloodshed God-Emperor’s figure turned illusory before two bodies appeared. These two figures of Bloodshed God-Emperor were employing arrays at this moment… two enormous arrays appeared on the wings of Black Bird Fifth Uncle Master. One was a wing full of flames, and the other was a wing full of frost.
“Hong~” Black Bird Fifth Uncle Master fanned his wing, causing both ice and fire to merge. It released a terrifying destructive force across the region in front. Everywhere the energy passed was destroyed.
The two avatars, arrays, and the black bird released a horrifying force as a whole.
Xue Ying felt astonished. This was the first time he saw his teacher Bloodshed God-Emperor releasing his entire might. Just like himself, Xue Ying had a real body and two avatars, yet all of them were fighting their own individual battles. On the side of Bloodshed God-Emperor, both avatars of his were perfectly controlling two arrays that merged together, allowing their strength to surge explosively.
“Such a powerful Ruler.” In the Primal Chaos Flying Ship, the enormous sculpture ‘Gu Qian Luo’ was watching this scene. His expression slightly changed, “If I did not have the Primal Chaos Flying Ship, I am most likely not his opponent even if I relied on other treasures when I was at my peak! This cosmos could actually create such a frightening Ruler. Such strength should give him the power to resist against several moves by a Void God.”
Gu Qian Luo could not help but feel jealousy in his heart. With his experience, he was able to determine that the ‘Black Bird’ was just a slightly more unique lifeform. It should be a Ruler too.
Being able to get a follower who could unleash such power… if he were in front of Ancestor Bone, this Bloodshed God-Emperor would qualify more than he, Gu Qian Luo, as a sacred son! Naturally, it was because Gu Qian Luo faced an imminent danger in his position. That was why he had to take the risk and go on an adventure outside.
“Hmph.” Even though he was jealous, Gu Qian Luo remained disdainful of this, “Ultimately, he has not left the cosmos. Wait until I get the treasures from the Ancestor Mother Religion and I’ll just eliminate him on the way!”
Bloodshed God-Emperor was able to unleash that ultra-strong offense. As for Primal Master, Empress Qian He, Monarch Green, Myriad God Palace Head, and Pang Yi, the five of them immediately controlled an enormous array. Primal Master was acting as the core controller, and the array would form black cracks every time it unleashed an offense. It contained an offensive power that would terrify others.
Other than that, Purgatory Ruler, Xue Ying, Abyss Primogenitor, and Temporal Island Lord were also fighting as individuals.
Ultimately, the cultivators had too few powerful treasures.
“Hong~” Black Bird Fifth Uncle Master would sweep out a horrifying destructive energy every time it flapped its wings.
“Hua!” Primal Master and the other four were quite good with arrays. That was why they were currently controlling one to converge their strength. Every single strike would cause space to crack. Those strikes were done in a bid to tear the Ancestor Mother Religion apart.
Xue Ying, Purgatory Ruler, and the others were also attacking, albeit their offenses were much weaker. Ultimately, they were still within the region of what a Ruler could unleash and could not threaten the Ancestor Mother Religion at all!
The Ancestor Mother Religion had three crucial protections.
One was the Wooden Mustache War Vessel which was located beneath the altar. Large amounts of roots were flying around and revolving by the sides of the altar. They were protecting it.
The second protection was the Primal Chaos Flying Ship which stopped above the altar.
The third was the array given by Gu Qian Luo.
“Hong hong hong~” “Hua hua hua~”
The cultivators were madly attacking, though they were barely destroying the obstacles formed by a large number of roots. The Primal Chaos Flying Ship was merely protecting the space below, easily blocking off all remnant shockwaves.
“I overestimated them too much, and even lent six arrays to the Ancestor Mother Religion.” Gu Qian Luo could not help but sneer from within the Primal Chaos Flying Ship. That’s right. The first two protections were enough to defend the altar. The arrays did not suffer from any attack at all.
“Quickly activate it.”
The Religious Leaders were all very anxious.
And that thin old man was still chanting in front of the altar. Even if he wanted to rush through the procedure, it would be pointless since the process of activation had to be done step by step.
As the thin old man gradually activated the altar, the energy of the altar became all the more disruptive. It began forming a connection with an existence far away whom they worshipped.
A smile bloomed on the face of this thin old man. It was like a baby in the bosom of his mother. He could sense that mighty and boundless energy, and in front of this, he who was a Religious Leader existence was just like an ant in front of the starry sky.
The altar abruptly unleashed an even stronger power. It resonated with the many grayish altar illusions located at other parts of the cosmos. This sort of resonance gradually turned into a law and began to stabilize. And the world energy pervading the entire Cultivator Cosmos started turning more violent. Several Transcendents located in the Deity world, material realm and Dark Abyss began to discover that they could no longer absorb the world energy because it was too violent.
“Soon.” The other Religious Leaders were revealing joyous looks from within the Wooden Mustache War Vessel.
“What should we do? What can we do if we can’t destroy the altar?” Monarch Green revealed an anxious look.
“That altar is under the protection of that war vessel and Primal Chaos Flying Ship. It even has a strange array defending it. Right now, we can’t even break past the protection of that Primal Chaos Flying Ship.” Primal Master’s expression turned ugly.
Bloodshed God-Emperor was also becoming anxious.
What to do?
The Ancestor Mother Religion had to construct six altars before they succeed in constructing the complete Ancestor Mother Altar which would then start transforming the entire cosmos. Every single altar required someone to protect, and there was only a single Wooden Mustache War Vessel and a single Primal CHaos Flying Ship. This was also the reason why the Ancestor Mother Religion did not construct any other altars before they completed with the first one since they could not defend them!
But with that strange array, Bloodshed God-Emperor who was a grand expert in the aspect of arrays could see with a single glance: “That array defending the altar is extremely mystical and unique. Its defensive strength is even beyond the Wooden Mustache War Vessel and the Primal Chaos Flying Ship.”
The Primal Chaos Flying Ship had a genuinely heaven-shattering defense. But Gu Qian Luo was ultimately heavily injured, so he could only stop above the altar and control the space below to defend the altar. And this simple protection… was far weaker than the array protecting the altar.
“This array has never appeared in this cosmos before.”
“And with how mystical and unique it is, the array should most likely be taken out by Gu Qian Luo since it is of an entirely different system with the Ancestor Mother Religion.” Bloodshed God-Emperor was anxious, “Since he decided to act, he should most likely have the certainty to defend all six altars. What should we do, what should we do?”
The cultivators did not have any methods of resolving the crisis. They were weaker than the Ancestor Mother Religion in terms of their foundation, much less as compared to Gu Qian Luo.
“Ancestor Mother?” Xue Ying looked distantly towards the first altar. The first altar contained enough power to engulf the entire cosmos. Many other regions had formed illusions of grayish altars. With his perception of the void, he was able to discover those gray altars, “The Ancestor Mother is truly overbearing.”
Having cultivated Walker’s Hidden Secret to the 11th level, he was able to enter the Primal Chaos Void at the Ruler realm! And Voidwalker Gu Qi had also left behind ample amount of information in the inheritances regarding the Primal Chaos Void including the information on the sacred world.
With the status of the Voidwalker ‘Gu Qi’, the intelligence he provided was extremely vast.
The vast Primal Chaos Void and the five great sacred worlds! And each of the terrifying existences like Forefather Tian Yu, Lake Heart Island Swordmaster, Devil Mountain Primogenitor, and so on. These were existences who had cultivated to an extreme end! Even the Voidwalker’s cultivation system, the “Walker’s Hidden Secret”, would allow him to step into the final realm of cultivation from the 51st level onwards.
That was an unfathomable level. Naturally, there were weak and strong experts in that realm. For instance, the creator of the entire Walker’s Hidden Secret, he was someone terrifying and powerful.
And amongst the existences at the final realm, ‘Ancestor Mother’ was also a truly terrifying and overbearing existence. This cultivation system ultimately relied on the belief for Ancestor Mother while rejecting all other systems! Everything was about honoring the Ancestor Mother! Even the Ancestor Mother Altar could rely on ‘Ancestor Mother’ to transmit energy to transform the cosmos.
According to logic, such existences would suffer from rejection by others in the final realm. But the status of Ancestor Mother remained firm. It was because he was too strong and powerful!
“I still require to use the Black Gourd in the end.” Xue Ying flipped his hand, bringing out a Black Gourd.
“Dong Bo Xue Ying, are you thinking of using it?” The treasure spirit transmitted, “I’ll have to remind you once again, you are currently a Ruler, and using the second level of strength from the Black Gourd… will harm the entire cosmos! If you were too frenzy about it, it might even destroy the entire cosmos.”
“I understand. I’ll be careful in controlling the area it’ll affect.” Xue Ying replied.
When he was a Paragon, the energy emitted by the Black Gourd was enough to induce all Rulers to evade it!
And at the Ruler realm, what the Black Gourd release was no longer just ripples. Instead, it was a more terrifying power, one that could force even Void Gods–’Origin Birth realm’–to retreat. Ordinary Void Gods could not withstand against such an attack. One could see how terrifying and savage it was. Only objects that were powerful enough could act as a ‘protector’ and defend Voidwalkers at the Ruler realm!
Gu Qian Luo who was always observing the cultivators from the Primal Chaos Flying Ship and the other Ancestor Mother Religion Religious Leaders felt slightly disdained.
The power of the Black Gourd had been seen by them before. That black ripple might be powerful and wild, and could barely reach the Void God level. It was not even up to par with Bloodshed God-Emperor’s offense, so what was the point of using it in the battle?
“Pa.” Xue Ying unplugged the cork of the Black Gourd.
