Chapter 844: Star Pagoda Fifth Level
The mountains were chained in an undulating fashion; the trees were flourishing.
Xue Ying appeared in the world at this level. He stood at the peak of a mountain and observed the world. This was the fourth level world in the Star Pagoda. Xue Ying had once failed to get past this level when he was in the Origin Birth realm.
“I am here.” Xue Ying’s gaze landed midair in the distance.
“Chi chi chi~” Deep within the mountain range, many blood light strands were rushing out before gathering at a point far away. Eventually, the strands of light transformed into a living creature of some other race wearing blood armor. His skin was dark, and it felt like he was made of a black metallic cast. He also had black hair which was tied into hundreds of little pigtails.
The blood-armored living creature tilted his head slightly. That lone gray eye of his was observing Xue Ying: “Have you become stronger? Are you finally here to re-challenge me?”
He was emitting an aura which caused the world laws to slightly distort. It seemed he was born to destroy everything.
“Can I ask where you originated from?” Xue Ying asked.
“You aren’t qualified to know.” The blood-armored creature gave a wicked laughter, “It is better for you to die now.”
He suddenly let out terrifying ripples. These ripples swept across in all directions. Every single ripple contained an ominous aura, and every location which was swept across by the ripples–even though they seemed to be unaffected by any destruction, the flowers and grasses on the mountain had withered, and the leaves on the trees swiftly turned yellow before falling. The world at this level rapidly turned into a desolate and harsh environment.
As the ripples swept towards Xue Ying, it stopped moving just beyond 500 kilometers away. Xue Ying’s law domain had become much stronger now.
“Interesting. Things are getting more interesting.” The blood-armored creature knew that his original plan was ineffective, and decided to give it up. He decided to just engage in a direct combat with Xue Ying!
He immediately disappeared.
Xue Ying calmly stood where he was on the mountain peak. Nevertheless, the 500 kilometers region around him had fallen into silent darkness. Xue Ying then turned to a direction where a figure had appeared. It was the figure of that blood-armored living creature–he had teleported over. Currently, that creature could still move within Xue Ying’s law domain, but it was at speed much slower than before. Under the suppression of the law domain, the other party could barely display 10% of his strength.
“Die.” Xue Ying let out a thought.
A dark world with a diameter of 5,000 kilometers descended from nothingness. It turned from illusion into reality and was rapidly absorbing the world energy around it.
The blood-armored creature looked at the descending dark world. This pitch black world was desolate, yet the blood-armored being could feel that behind this silent fermenting world was incomparably horrifying destruction. This caused his expression to change. He originally thought that this brat had just stepped into the Unity realm, and it would not be that difficult to defeat him. But apparently, he was way off the mark.
‘The previous time I saw him, he was still at the Origin Birth realm. How long had it been since he broke through? And now, he can easily kill me already? An Elder of the Great Void Heaven Temple should not be able to cultivate that fast right?’ The blood-armored creature contained some slight unwillingness as he rushed towards Xue Ying with great effort. Nevertheless, he was traveling really slowly at this moment.
The dark world wrapped around this blood-armored creature. It soon began shrinking! At the moment it shrank to a diameter of 100 meters, it was like a massive bubble with the blood-armored creature trapped at its center trying to fly away.
The explosion of the dark bubble caused the entire energy of the world destruction to land on the blood-armored creature. The blood-armored creature could only stare at Xue Ying before it collapsed and disappeared. During that explosion, the creature returned back into its original form of blood strands that tunneled back into the mountains.
“Time to go to the fifth level.” Xue Ying did not find it puzzling. After all, from the experiences of Dark World Master, the first style–Dark Bubble–sufficed for Xue Ying to get through even the fifth level Star Pagoda. Naturally, it was quite simple to get through the fourth level.
Getting through the fifth level of Star Pagoda meant many things. Getting through it indicated that Xue Ying would have reached the boundary of a Primal Chaos realm expert. It represented that he would be unparalleled amongst those at the Unity realm! As for getting through the sixth and seventh level? That had happened in history, and in the current era, there was none at the Unity realm who could get through the seventh level. And those who got through the sixth level could be counted with one’s fingers! To meet one such existence was even harder than meeting a Cosmos God!
In the Great Void Heaven Temple, anybody who got through this level was an Inner Hall Elder.
“Getting through this level will allow me to find out the hidden secret within.” Xue Ying appeared in a desolate wilderness. This wilderness contained many thunder snakes striking down on the surface with sounds of ‘pi li pa la’. The thunder was gathering in a distant region, and it was comparatively much more peaceful where Xue Ying was at.
“What secret is it that even my teacher Gu Qi isn’t willing to tell me?” Xue Ying felt stifled.
“I’ll be able to unravel the truth after I defeat my opponent on this level.” Xue Ying was looking forward to it.
“Chi chi chi~”
In the distant, within the region which contained countless thunder, many blood rays started surging from the ground and started condensing into a single blood-armored expert. He had four arms and a silvery-white skin. He was tall and big, and he was looking at Xue Ying with a cold expression.
“Just one?” Xue Ying was looking at this scene with slight shock.
According to his previous experiences, the first level of Star Pagoda contained a gray-armored living creature, and the second level included ten of them. The third level had a hundred of them! And since the fourth level had just a single blood-armored enemy, should there just be a single blood-armored enemy on the fifth level as well? Nevertheless, the enemies on the two levels looked different.
“Unity realm? Kill!” This blood-armored silvery-white-skinned four-armed expert was too lazy to talk. He had brazenly acted.
He directly teleported to the region of 500 kilometers around Xue Ying, and at the same time, he was forced to reveal himself due to Xue Ying’s law domain. Within the silent dark law domain, this four-armed expert’s expression did not change. He remained flying at high speed! And his rate of flying was so fast that he was able to rush to where Xue Ying was in the blink of an eye despite being suppressed by the law domain.
“Xiu.” Xue Ying felt nearly dumbstruck by this. He hurriedly teleported away. Xue Ying’s flying speed was not as fast as the other party’s despite the other party being suppressed by his law domain! He could only teleport and evade the attack.
As for engaging in close combat?
His current close combat skills were far weaker than the “Dark World”. Not just the Voidwalker system or his Dao of Slaughter and Dao of Ripple, they were not yet at the Unity realm. He would definitely lose quickly if he engaged in close combat.
“Si la~” During the moment when the blood-armored four-armed expert rushed to the side of Xue Ying, his four arms rapidly shot out and tore apart space. Xue Ying’s remnant illusory image had been shattered by it.
As for his true body, Xue Ying was currently teleporting through the Mirage World. Furthermore, he also displayed the first style of ‘Dark Bubble’.
The Dark Bubble descended. A Dark World came from the illusion. Furthermore, it had turned into reality before rapidly shrinking. The World Energy was rapidly focalizing into it. Even though the blood-armored four-armed expert was pursuing Xue Ying, this ‘Dark Bubble’ closely followed behind the other party. Furthermore, it exploded after rapidly shrinking, ‘peng’! A destructive energy rapidly let loose on the enemy within the bubble.
The blood-armored four-armed expert was stunned momentarily as injuries formed on his body from this explosion. But under the revolution of the blood light, his injuries gradually recovered.
“You are able to injure me?” The blood-armored four-armed expert roared out indignantly. He swiftly teleported to the region of 500 kilometers around Xue Ying. His speed had suddenly surged. Now, he could teleport to where Xue Ying was despite being hindered by Xue Ying’s law domain. Speaking about teleportation… Xue Ying’s Voidwalker system had yet to break through, so he was far weaker in this aspect as compared to his opponent.
“I have only injured him?” Xue Ying was very shocked. He was clear of the power of this first style’Dark Bubble’.
“If that’s the case, time for me to use the move again.” Xue Ying’s eyes turned cold. He could finally display the full move of this absolute art after succeeding in cultivating it.
“Hong hong hong hong hong hong!”
A Dark World descended from illusion, and then a bigger Dark World enveloped the previous layer of the world. A third Dark World and then a fourth world…
There were a total of six Dark Worlds with one enveloping the other.
They turned into reality before frantically absorbing the World Energy. At the same time, they were rapidly turning small. Eventually, all six of the bubbles from small to big encircled the enemy.
Six Dark Bubbles exploded one after another.
With the current strength of Xue Ying’s soul, he could at construct six Dark Worlds at most while controlling them. Any more and it would surpass his own limits. The six Dark Bubbles exploded one after another, inflicting its power one after another on the blood-armored enemy of this fifth level Star Pagoda…
