Chapter 769: Golden Flames
Feeling that mystical void array within the Black Gourd, Xue Ying began activating the arrays within. After reaching the Ruler realm, his soul had become much stronger, allowing him to control a greater portion of the ‘Sun Star’-like fireball’s might present within the Black Gourd. Nevertheless, Xue Ying remained cautious and vigilant, as he was clear that such a power might possibly cause the end of this cosmos if he was to let it run rampant!
Just like the many mortal worlds within the material realm, when met with destruction, they would end up in apocalypse within a shorter period of time before undergoing rebirth.
Every single cosmos epoch had differing lifespans. Over time, as the lifeforms reproduced and Rulers emerged, the number of Void Gods who appeared and consume the World energy at an ever-increasing rate, resulting in the direct destruction towards the cosmos… all sorts of reasons determined the length of a cosmos epoch.
The second level of Black Gourd possessed the might to force Void Gods to retreat. Therefore, its power could naturally harm a cosmos.
If Xue Ying became a Void God and mastered the control of the third level of Black Gourd… it was possible for him to cause the end of a cosmos epoch with just a single move!
In reality, the strength of a Void God was more than sufficient to cause harm to a cosmos. Thus, the three Great Emperors of Devil Mountain Cosmos… would usually only exchange moves within the ‘Primogenitor Devil Mountain’ and not take any action in other regions of the cosmos.
‘Be more careful, control its range.’ Xue Ying told himself, ‘I must stop using the Black Goud after eliminating this altar.’
At this moment, the Ancestor Mother Religion and Gu Qian Luo were focused more on Bloodshed God-Emperor and the others, completely disregarding the existence of Dong Bo Xue Ying. To them, that Black Gourd… although it would be relatively effective when used against two to three Rulers, this was a group level fight. With Ancestor Mother Religion had practically used its entire foundation along with the help of Gu Qian Luo, the Black Gourd was not even worth a mention in such a lineup.
Not just them, even Bloodshed God-Emperor, Monarch Green, Primal Master, and others were secretly shaking their heads while thinking: ‘ Although the power of the Black Gourd might have some use, it can’t change the overall situation of this war.’
On the contrary, Xue Ying was extremely cautious. At this moment, he felt incomparable pressure bearing down on his soul, pressing down with a force that surpassed his current realm of cultivation. Fortunately, he was the master of the Black Gourd. Otherwise, he would have already suffered severe injuries as a result.
“Be destroyed, Ancestor Mother Religion.” Xue Ying’s eyes were filled with a strand of madness.
Eye piercing brightness
Incomparably eye-piercing brightness.
This eye-piercing brightness caused both parties to turn subconsciously turn their heads over to take a look. Upon doing so, astonishment appeared in the eyes of Gu Qian Luo in the Primal Chaos Flying Ship, the Religious Leaders from the Ancestor Mother Religion and the Rulers from the cultivators, as they stared right a the Black Gourd.
At this moment, an incomparably dazzling golden light was shooting out from the mouth of the Black Gourd. Tearing through space, it rushed straight towards that altar. This ultra-fast golden light appeared to have a liquid-like consistency and was the most dazzling object currently in the entire starry sky–appearing to be much more dazzling than the Sun Star. At the instance of its appearance, the surrounding temperature was rose rapidly, reach levels that cause even the void to become warped and distorted. The temperatures radiating out from it were so high Rulers would be instantly turned into ashes should they even dare to touch it.
“Pu–” Massive amounts of roots that protected the Wooden Mustache War Vessel were smashed apart instantly upon contact with this golden liquid like radiance, turning utterly soft and powerless. The defense space controlled by the Primal Chaos Flying Ship had also been smashed apart by the incoming golden light, unable to block even a sliver of it.
“Block it!” The two Religious Leaders maintaining the array that protected the altar turned anxious, as this protection array was their final line of defense.
“Chi chi chi~” The surging golden liquid light was just like galloping wave–gushing over. However, possessing extreme speed and power, it smashed into the protective array, which released a dazzling light in response. Many veined patterns on the violet array started trembling, while many patterns were being shattered into pieces. In half a breath since the appearance of the golden light, the protective array was completely broken apart. It had also engulfed the three Religious Leaders from the Ancestor Mother Religion–the two Religious Leaders controlling the array and the one activating the altar, while completely inundating the entire altar.
Three Religious Leaders were instantly turned into ashes.
The Wooden Mustache War Vessel and Primal Chaos Flying Ship did not dare to get close to the golden light.
This surging and piercing golden light enveloped the altar, showing no signs of continuing to surge forwards. On the contrary, it appeared extremely docile and under control.
“Golden Sun Flames?”
“That is the Golden Sun Flames?”
Bloodshed God-Emperor, Primal Master, and the others were extremely shocked, as they were too familiar with the Sun Star. The Sun Star was split into six different levels, of which the fifth level ‘Sun Abyss’ contained this sort of liquefied flames–the Golden Sun Flames. It’s said that the so-called ‘Sun Star Nucleus’ existed beneath the layer of Golden Sun Flames. That was the true core of the Sun Star.
This liquid within the Sun Abyss exceedingly potent, causing Rulers to not dare to get close to it as they would feel impending death upon doing so! Many seniors across the epochs like Lake Heart Island master and Ancestor Devil had recorded matters pertaining to the Sun Star down. Rulers who dared to touch the Sun Golden Flames would turn into ashes instantaneously. Even Void Gods were not able to survive for long in the presence of those Sun Golden Flames.
Xue Ying held onto the Black Gourd. The density of the Golden Sun flames was at its highest at the mouth of the gourd, distorting as it squeezed out before surging forwards to engulf the altar at a distance.
Xue Ying sent out a thought.
These dazzling golden flames formed a passage. Xue Ying took a slow step into the void, while the golden flames to split out and revolved obediently around Xue Ying.
Following the passage formed by the golden flames, Xue Ying walked towards the first altar. Extending his right hand, his palm started to expand rapidly before grabbing hold onto the altar and giving a furious tug! Being a Voidwalker, he possessed extremely terrifying strength, allowing him to forcibly tear the connection between the altar and other large numbers of grayish altars located across the cosmos apart. After pulling it over, he proceeded to forcibly keep the altar into his storage treasure.
Faced with the changes happening to the current situation,, the Ancestor Mother Religion and Gu Qian Luo within the Primal Chaos Flying Ship could only watch on, being completely unable to hinder the movements of Dong Bo Xue Ying.
The Religious Leaders within the Wooden Mustache War Vessel turned dazed.
“The first altar has been taken away. How can we find a new first altar within such a short period?”
“And how can we defend the six altars from that terrifying Golden Flames?” These Religious Leaders were completely stunned. The power of the Black Gourd had caused them to feel despair.
The cultivators were incomparably shocked by the scene before them. A Ruler could actually control the power of the Golden Flames from the Sun Star, and in such a large scale? Who would dare defend against such an attack?
This made Monarch Green, Primal Master, and the others both joyous and envious at the same time. At this moment, they understood that the ‘Black Gourd’ was not that simple as they once thought it to be. Instead, it was a genuinely unfathomable treasure, and at the very least was more powerful than all of the treasures the Rulers possessed.
‘No wonder he could rise so quickly. His luck is too good.’ Temporal Island Lord thought. Even though they were of the same race, he could not curb his jealousy.
The lowly brat who once wanted to join the Temporal Temple in the past had become the target of jealousy of this Temporal Island Lord. However, if not for Xue Ying’s soaring speed in cultivation and how dazzling he was, it was impossible for him to pass through the trials for the Voidwalker! Like Temporal Island Lord, if he were to participate in the Voidwalker’s trial, he would fail because of his poor comprehension ability and because of his poor heart temperament.
At the moment, within the Primal Chaos Flying Ship, the enormous sculpture ‘Gu Qian Luo’ had completely different emotions surging within his heart, while a horrified look had appeared on his face.
“A Ruler that has yet to walk out of this Cosmos is actually able to get his hands on such a treasure?”
“When he was a Paragon, the rippling attacks emitted by the Black Gourd were able to contend against Rulers. Now, it’s capable of releasing this terrifying flames which were sufficient to deal with ordinary Void Gods.”
“Different levels… will result in differing might! What’s more, it seems that there aren’t any retaliatory effects?”
“That treasure is definitely a protective treasure deliberately left behind by some expert for his descendants.” Gu Qian Luo’s horizons and view were vast and wide. After all, he was ultimately the seventh sacred son of Ancestor Bone Throne. Only the first three sacred sons could obtain a protective treasure from Ancestor Bone Throne. Gu Qian Luo was not yet qualified to get one!
“I must get it!”
“That protective treasure is so much more precious than the treasures of the Ancestor Mother Religion. It might even be more valuable of than my Primal Chaos Flying Ship.”
“Although that sort of protective treasure would definitely be meant for the inheritor.,with no other people being able to utilize it … as long as I bring it back plead to my teacher, he would still be willing to help me to do something simple like refining it.” Gu Qian Luo felt disturbances brewing in his heart. If he asked his teacher to painstakingly refine a protective treasure from start to end for him, he would definitely not be willing to do so. However, something simple like refining a complete protective treasure for his disciple was something that could be accomplished with the flip of his hand.
“I must get it!”
At this moment, Gu Qian Luo’s thoughts were extremely clear. The Ancestor Mother Religion had lost the first altar. What’s more, it was impossible for the six altars to resist against that Black Gourd. Therefore, he had long thrown the Ancestor Mother Religion behind the back of his mind.
There was only one thought going through his head–that was to think of any way possible to get the Black Gourd into his hands! The moment he had done so, he might think of spending a little effort to help the Ancestor Mother Religion.
“I must get it! Once I get it in my hands, I’m able to return.” Never in his dreams did Gu Qian Luo thought that he would be so lucky as to be able to see such a protective treasure within a cosmos. If the Black Gourd merely just released the Golden Flames, he would not recognize truly how valuable it was. After all, although the Golden Flames were powerful, they weren’t able to match up to the value of the Primal Chaos Flying Ship. However, Xue Ying had used it once in the Paragon realm. It was able to unleash attacks with differing might at when the user was on different realms! Even the method by which it triggered its attacks were different! A treasure like this would most likely continue to become stronger even after he becomes a Void God. By then, the power it could unleash would also undergo a qualitative change!
Xue Ying had forcibly taken away the first altar. At this moment, the other grayish altar illusions within the cosmos had utterly dissipated away, and the world energy in the Cultivator Cosmos gradually regained its usual calm and warmth.
“Pa.” Xue Ying severed the activation of the Sun Golden Flame with a single thought while immediately closing the entrance of the Black Gourd. After all, the Sun Golden Flames were too powerful and would be harmful to the cosmos.
“Master, be careful! Be careful of that Gu Qian Luo!” The treasure spirit immediately transmitted a message over.
An unseen ripple immediately propagated out from the Primal Chaos Flying Ship, surging out in a swift and sinister manner. This was none other than Gu Qian Luo, who was now brimming with killing intent. Madness filled the eyes of Gu Qian Luo. He had to get this protective treasure at all costs!
