Chapter 861: Scheme!
Xue Ying rarely used his flying daggers now. He depended more on the Multi-Layered Dark World and the Plate Ripple Diagram.
Because the Multi-Layered Dark World seemed to be bringing greater advantages than the flying daggers.
For instance, the attack came more sudden.
The flying daggers had to travel over a distance to the enemy, but the Multi-Layered Dark World could descend directly from illusory into reality, enveloping the enemy such that the other party could not dodge! Previously, he had unleashed this move against Undying City Master, encompassing three layers of Dark World on every single body of the 19 bodies. After all, they had previously fought before, and Xue Ying quite understood the defenses of the black-fogged bodies of the other party
Just three layers of Dark World should not be able to kill the other party.
But Xue Ying did not want to kill the other party!
“Pa pa pa pa…”
Of the 19 bodies, all of them suffered from the bombard of three layers of Dark World. The world contained a total of 57 layers! The largest he could release was 112 layers.
“This, this…” When the 19 bodies of Undying City Master suffered from the attack at the same time, he felt the threat of death.
“It seems despite teaming up, both of you can’t threaten me at all. Instead, you all have only been using those few moves after so many rounds.” Xue Ying said while shaking his head. His voice reverberated within the space in the second level of the treasure cove, “Since that’s the case, then let us end this.”
Xue Ying had wanted to fight a huge battle with all his strength. He wanted to refine and temper himself.
If he could unleash the second style of the Dark World, the ‘Sky Punishment Edge’, it would be awesome! Even though he had comprehended it, he could not unleash the move. This was the only thing that was frustrating Xue Ying now.
It’s a pity the other two parties could not threaten him at all.
The muscular male was strong enough, but his offensive style was too simple!
Undying City Master could only display the “Undying Seven Law Plates”. Even though they were relatively mysterious, Undying City Master had been using this single killing move after fighting for so long. But it was normal. Experts cultivating the hex or law and profound mysteries system could have a greater variety of moves, but experts cultivating the other systems would usually specialize in just a single killing move.
“You can’t handle us at all.” Undying City Master coldly laughed.
It was impossible for both he and the muscular male to admit defeat.
They could not escape from this location. It would mean death if they were to lose the battle!
“Fool.” Xue Ying sneered.
Did they not discover that he could display 112 layers of Multi-Layered Dark World against the muscular male, but he only used three layers against the bodies of Undying City Master? That’s right too. He attacked too quickly since every dark world was destroyed at the same time. The enemy would not have the time to notice the difference in the number of layers by the membrane of the world.
“Descend.” Xue Ying decided to just display the move again.
Of the 19 bodies of Undying City Master, each had suffered from three layers of Dark World assault. Furthermore, Xue Ying displayed another 63 layers of Dark World again, though they were not targeted at any enemies. He was purely displaying it.
Many layers of Dark World shattered at the same time.
Undying City Master was stunned.
‘He, he could still display so many shattering worlds?’ Undying City Master felt chill down his heart. Seeing so many dark worlds attacking none of them, he felt despair. If those dark worlds were targeted at him, could his 19 bodies still resist against it?
“It is possible for you to kill him, yet you can’t kill me.” The muscular male stood there. His eyes were cold, though he knew something was amiss. Because his comrade ‘Undying City Master’ was already stunned into a daze.
Xue Ying glanced at him: “Is that so?”
Saying that, he flipped his hand, causing a Black Gourd to appear. He unplugged the cork.
A palm-sized fireball abruptly flew out. It turned into a meteor. The muscular male felt jittery the moment he saw this meteor-like fireball. But now, under the domain suppression of the Plate Ripple Diagram, he could not evade from the attack. The fireball hit his chest within moments. That extremely tough body of his was struck, forming a huge hole. Xue Ying had even controlled it deliberately to let the power of the fireball remain within his body.
The eyes of the muscular male were wide and round. He lowered his head at the massive hole on his chest, and the destruction his body was suffering from within.
“If I am willing to, killing you is very simple.” Xue Ying said.
With how high Xue Ying’s current realm was, he was able to control the fireball more nimbly. He could even move it through an arc leaving behind ripples from the Plate Ripple Diagram, making it hard for the muscular male to evade.
The entire place was silent.
On the second level of the treasure cove, the Undying City Master and the muscular male were standing there in shock. They were not fools. At this moment, they understood that this expert could completely kill him.
“You could kill us, yet why don’t you do so?” The muscular male muttered.
“Why did you not act in the first level? Are you afraid that I would escape?” Undying City Master asked, “But currently, I cannot even escape, so why don’t you kill us?”
Xue Ying said, “In the first level world, it is natural for me not to reveal too much of my strength. If I were to do so, it would frighten the both of you. Why would the two of you still dare to enter the second level world?”
The muscular male and Undying City Master both understood.
If they felt the danger of death, it was impossible for them to enter the second level for fear of someone else controlling their fate.
“I wish for the two of you to enter the second level.” Xue Ying said. He pointed to the small meteorite hill by the side, “I have no confidence of completely destroying this small meteorite hill by myself within the short three days. I need help! And the two of you are strong enough. Naturally, I wouldn’t kill the two of you.”
The muscular male and the Undying City Master both let out a bitter laughter.
He had always been hiding his strength and only revealed at the end because he wanted the two of them to become his labor.
Xue Ying sighed inwardly too. Actually, when he fought the two of them, he wanted to have a certain breakthrough so that he could display the ‘Sky Punishment Edge’. That meant he would be at the sixth level Star Pagoda strength. It would be much easier for him to enter the third level treasure cove as a result. It’s a pity he still had not broken through. Thus, these two helpers were essential.
“The two of you have a choice. One is to die. Another is to help me destroy this small meteorite hill. As long as you help me, I can pardon you guys and let you survive.” Xue Ying said.
The two of them glanced at each other. They did not have other choices.
“You are formidable. We will help you.” The two of them said.
“I wonder what you are called by others? Let us understand who we were bitterly defeated by.” The muscular male said.
Xue Ying replied, “Just call me Flying Snow.”
The muscular male and Undying City Master understood the moment they hear it. This was a fake name because they had never heard before of such a powerful cultivator called Flying Snow.
“Xiu.” Xue Ying controlled the Black Gourd fireball, bombarding it at the small meteorite hill by the side. Nevertheless, the moment it touched the hill, it suffered from an unseen spatial obstruction.
‘Depending on external strength is indeed impossible.’ Xue Ying shook his head inwardly.
The intelligence reports had long stated this clearly.
Depending on external strength was impossible. One had to depend on one’s own comprehended killing moves to strike on the small meteorite hill!
External strength? For instance, some powerful, precious talisman could erupt with an offense at the Primal Chaos realm level… but Monarch Nine Cloud had clearly ensured the trial would test only on the junior cultivator’s own strength and not external strength.
“Quickly start moving. Don’t waste any more time. We do not have much left.” Xue Ying hollered.
The muscular male and Undying City Master felt helpless in their hearts. They began laboring.
Xue Ying said by the side, “You must put in all your strength. I am clear of how strong the two of you are. Previously, you had been filled with fighting spirit. So if the two of you dares to be lazy… then I can only send the two of you to your deaths.”
“We don’t dare.” The two of them felt even more helpless.
So the previous battle was meant to get an understanding of their strength, ensuring the two of them to put in their entire effort.
Xue Ying nodded his head inwardly after seeing the effect of the two striking the small meteorite hill: ‘The two of them are quite powerful with their offenses. With the two of them adding their offenses together, they should be able to reach my rate of destruction. Hopefully, we could destroy this small meteorite hill at the end of three days.’ Xue Ying felt the pressure too.
