Chapter 943: Void Castle
The distance from Seven Star Oceanic Sacred World to the boundary of the void might be far, but Xue Ying was able to travel there in an instant. Garbed in a thick white robe, Xue Ying glanced over the region, spotting a tiny castle in the distant void. That was none other than the castle constructed after the cultivators at the boundary of the void paid a considerable price—the Void Castle.
The experts gathered at the Void Castle far exceeded that on any single sacred world.
There would at least be three true bodies of Cosmos Gods stationed here all year round. As for incarnations? More than 10 Cosmos God incarnations were here. Even the free and easy ‘Luo City Lord’ had an incarnation placed here for long periods. The number of true bodies of Primal Chaos giants situated here numbered more than 200, and even more of their incarnations were here. There was still a large number of Unity realm experts who came to risk their lives.
This was the frontmost line of the cultivators’ resistance against the ‘Destruction Devils’. And currently, the new Primal Chaos expert ‘Xue Ying’ had arrived here.
‘Void Castle.’ Xue Ying glanced at that miniature castle before entering it with a step.
In reality, the Void Castle was massive—it occupied more than 50 million kilometers in diameter, of which most of the space was occupied by array structures. In one of the palace halls, more than 200 Primal Chaos experts were discussing with each other here. They looked delighted as they chatted. “Weng”, accompanied by the distortion of space, Xue Ying appeared within the hall.
“Dong Bo Hall Master?” Those Primal Chaos cultivators who were drinking and discussing Daos turned over. The moment they saw Xue Ying, many began brimming in happiness.
“Heart Imitation Religious Master…” Xue Ying chuckled and acknowledged them briefly. He then walked towards five of the Primal Chaos experts under the Great Void Heaven Temple.
“Who would have thought that Dong Bo Xue Ying will arrive so quickly in the Void Castle.” Other Primal Chaos experts were also discussing quietly.
“It seems he has met some bottleneck after exiting from closed-door cultivation. He should likely reach the peak of eighth level Star Pagoda strength now.”
“Truly making the few of us guilty. Even after cultivating for so long, I could not get through the eighth level.”
The Primal Chaos experts were idly chatting with one another.
Most who were present were incarnations. They were resting here and were prepared to go for battles at any time.
And in another corner, Xue Ying met with five of the Primal Chaos experts from the Great Void Heaven Temple.
“Are all those within this hall incarnations? Are the five of you incarnations too?” Xue Ying asked curiously with a smile.
“In a while, the Void Castle will also arrange a miniature cavern-dwelling for you.” Primal Chaos Hall Master held onto a simple wine cup and smiled back, “During most of the ordinary battles, our incarnations are the one fighting outside. It is only during urgent situations when we would move with our true bodies.”
“You should know about the rule that we must stay only in the inner region when we move out with our true bodies, right?” Leading Wing Hall Master asked from the side.
“Mn, this I know.” Xue Ying nodded.
The Destruction Devils emerged from the inner section of ‘Lost World Corridor’ within the boundary of the void. The space within the Lost World Corridor was chaotic; it was like a maze. Even Cosmos Gods would get lost inside! According to legends, there were many ‘lairs’ within the Lost World Corridor, and those were where the Destruction Devils came from. Naturally, the lairs were split into different levels. The most ordinary ones would form ‘gray-armored ranked Destruction Devils’, and the rarest ones would form blood-armored Destruction Devils! And according to rumors… there were even unique lairs where golden-armored Destruction Devils would appear!
As such, the cultivators had constructed a colossal monitoring array around the outer perimeter of the Lost World Corridor.
The moment any Destruction Devil appear, they would be discovered through the monitoring array!
This monitoring array region was termed as ‘outer region’.
And in a smaller region right behind this region of monitoring array, the cultivators completely sealed the void in this area! The strength of the seal far outstripped that of a sacred world, and even Cosmos God Destruction Devils could not teleport within; they could only fly within!
Thus, when Destruction Devils came out from the Lost World Corridor, they would be noticed in the ‘outer region’. The moment they entered the inner region, they could only fly slowly. Even though this region was small, if they had to slowly fly, they would spend a considerable amount of time doing so! By then, the cultivators would have sufficient time to get rid of them.
Only after passing through the inner region, at the very end, would be where the spatial barrier was located at!
This was also the final layer of protection.
If the enemies charged through the inner region and attacked the spatial barrier, they would be able to break through the obstacles and enter the vast primal chaos void. By then, the Destruction Devils would be able to invade the five great sacred worlds, the many cosmos, and primal chaos lands whenever they wanted.
“They can only fly within the inner region. Although they aren’t able to discover our locations, we are able to trace theirs. Thus, we can easily corner them.” Leading Wing Hall Master had a peal of mischievous laughter, “And even if Cosmos God Destruction Devils conceal their auras and intrude upon this area, the moment he displays his power, we are able to easily teleport through a long distance. By then, a group of Cosmos Gods will handle them.”
Xue Ying nodded.
Even though the seals within the inner region were extremely formidable, they were unable to hinder ‘ultra-long distance teleportation’. Such experts were still able to force their ways through, including the Lost World Corridor! Cultivators depended on ultra-long distance teleportation to scout through the Lost World Corridor. The moment they discovered any traces of lairs, they would send a large group of Cosmos Gods over to kill it after locking upon their positions. And then, they would rely on ultra-long distance teleportation to escape!
Thus, the cultivators wielded the decisive opportunities if they relied on ‘ultra-long distance teleportations’.
As for the Destruction Devils… at least until now, there were no traces of them having the skill of ultra-long distance teleportation.
Naturally, those who were able to unravel ultra-long distance teleportation and ascertain this fact included only the fallen ‘Monarch Nine Cloud’. He had already begun finding ways to seal ultra-long distance teleportation using arrays.
“Fellow cultivators, do tell me what I should take note of when I go out to battle?” Xue Ying went on asking. Even though he had researched on specific information regarding this, finding out from those present would be better since they had experienced it first hand.
“Previously, Primal Chaos Hall Master mentioned about how incarnations are the ones mainly battling, and only during urgent situations would our true bodies move.” Celestial Water Hall Master shook his head, “That is because the incarnation of Primal chaos Hall Master is at the peak of the seventh level. We are much weaker. For example, my true body is only at the peak of the seventh level, and my incarnation is much weaker! Just by relying on my incarnation, I would not be able to gain anything. Thus, our true bodies would frequently pay the inner region a visit. We would first use our incarnations to scout the way ahead to probe the degree of danger before our true bodies proceed on! Only when we kill some of the stronger Destruction Devils would it be beneficial to our souls.”
Xue Ying nodded.
“The stronger the Destruction Devil, the more probable it is for it to leave behind some important and precious materials.” Leading Wing Hall Master added.
Xue Ying knew about this too. It was unlike battling in the Star Pagoda where there would be no benefits at all.
Fighting with the Destruction Devils, other than tempering himself, one would able to absorb the unique energy beneficial to the soul. Furthermore, some parts of those Destruction Devils were exceptional, and they would leave part of their bodies behind after they died in battle. These were extremely precious materials that could be used to refine cosmos-ranked treasures and other secret treasures.
For instance, the ‘Cheng Qun’ in the past was material from the body of a Destruction Devil.
Or the hair of a particular golden-armored Destruction Devil could be treated as a weapon. Its hair was just like an actual weapon that could not be easily damaged. Then if he died in battle, its hair would be left behind and used to refine into a secret treasure. Its value might be worth several thousand to even tens of thousands of Origin World Rocks!
Everything required luck! The Destruction Devil had to have certain parts of its body reaching a specific strength since most would still be entirely extinguished after dying in battles.
“I’ve stuck at this bottleneck for far too long. The help Destruction Devils bring to me can be ignored.” Primal Chaos Hall Master chuckled, “Dong Bo, you have just broken through not too long ago, so you should take this chance to temper yourself.”
“Understood.” Xue Ying nodded.
“Also, you can try and scout out the Lost World Corridor.” Primal Chaos Hall Master smiled.
