Chapter 946: Void Cultivation
Xue Ying entered that region which was pervaded with a destructive aura. Just as he walked out from the distorted void, he was able to discern the appearance of this space.
This was a unique space. The void within was twisted into the shape of a gigantic tree. On this void tree, there were many ‘eggs’ being grown on it. Their shell was gray in color, and they had differing sizes. With a glance, there were several hundred eggs, and the biggest one was already split open with many babies of Destruction Devils within that were covered in liquid. These babies were currently eating the shell.
Two mature gray-armored Destructive Devil soldiers were guarding this lair too. The two of them felt a spatial movement and had turned over. But it was just an empty space without anyone there.
“There are cultivators.” Even though they could not see nor sense it, they were quite sure that there were already cultivators who had invaded into their lair.
Because this lair was entirely filled with savage, destructive aura, and Xue Ying’s energy was utterly inharmonious with that aura.
‘I was discovered.’
Xue Ying watched that huge void tree, ‘The void actually formed a huge tree with eggs sprouting from it, and Destruction Devils are hatching from the eggs? Truly enigmatic.’ If Xue Ying had time to observe the process, he would be delighted. Nevertheless, he understood according to the information provided that he could no longer delay anymore.
Many delicate ripple strands descended. Those two gray-armored Destruction Devils were instantly smashed into smithereens. That huge distorted void tree was also being wrung apart. All of the eggs including those that had given birth to Destruction Devils were exterminated in an instant.
This incarnation of his might be weak, and his soul was controlling it from a very far distance, so it was taxing on him when using moves. Xue Ying could only form three flowers at most when utilizing the first style of “Destructive Flower”. This was considered to be at the seventh Star Pagoda strength! Yet it was unusual for a single incarnation to wield such power.
Previously, he unleashed his Plate Ripple Diagram domain across a large distance to extinguish these Destruction Devils. Ultimately, they were mere gray-armored soldiers, and Xue Ying could easily slaughter them.
“Xiu.” Xue Ying took a step before arriving at the spatial door. He then scuttled out.
Outside the space, there was a colorful brightly-lit spatial corridor.
“Chase him.” A golden-armored Destruction Devil was leading the rest. A group of blood-armored Destruction Devils was following behind them. They were currently flying along the Lost World Corridor as streams of light. This dangerous spatial corridor where one could easily get lost was actually the home of the Destruction Devils. It was easy for them to travel within, and they were not worried about getting lost inside.
‘They came really quickly.’ Xue Ying was slightly stunned. He was rapidly fleeing from them.
“Xiu xiu xiu…”
As he escaped at high speed, even though the enemies were getting closer to him, Xue Ying would only be giving up an incarnation. Nevertheless, if he could survive, it would be good.
The spatial corridor was fundamentally dangerous. Even though it might seem gorgeous and dazzling, there were many hidden traps within. If he were careless, he might just be teleported into a specific danger area within. Xue Ying as an expert of the void was carefully proceeding ahead. He had discovered many traps, but since he was being chased from behind, he had no time to examine through all the traps carefully.
The dazzling passage was filled with many colorful ripples. They seemed the same.
When Xue Ying teleported once again, the stream of light here suddenly trembled, and Xue Ying disappeared.
“Xiu~” The light behind flashed, and a golden-armored Destruction Devil brought his group of blood-armored Destruction Devil to a standstill. He looked ahead: “That cultivator is got himself lost. He was quite lucky to discover a lair.”
“It is merely a low graded lair.” The other blood-armored Destruction Devils were saying.
Three known grades were distinguishing the lairs. They would give birth to gray-armored rank, blood-armored rank and golden-armored rank Destruction Devils! Clearly, the value of a ‘golden-armored Destruction Devil lair’ was the highest because any golden-armored Destruction Devil would wield at the very least, a seventh level strength. There were even some amongst them who reached the ninth level strength–these were the apex experts.
Thus, if the cultivators could destroy a golden-armored graded lair, that would be an enormous victory. There was a reason for why Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master proposed such demanding price–10,000 Origin World Rocks for every 100 million years of work should he not find anything. Every blood-armored graded lair would earn him 10,000 Origin World Rocks, yet he asked for a full 200,000 Origin World Rocks for the discovery of a golden-armored graded lair.
Actually, gray-armored graded lairs were not worth mentioning. To Cosmos Gods, the lowest class Destruction Devils were all cannon fodder. Any single incarnation of theirs could slaughter them!
Even though the blood-armored graded lairs were paid more importance, in the eyes of Cosmos Gods, their value was not worth much either.
The reason why they invited Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master for help… was more to deal against the golden-armored graded lairs! They were willing to pay this 200,000 Origin World Rocks, but its a pity Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master did not find any. Instead, he discovered five blood-armored rank lairs… and the Cosmos Gods had to fork a price of 150,000 Origin World Rocks. Even Cosmos Gods were not so extravagant.
To these Destruction Devils, it was the same. They did not really care about those lower graded lairs.
Xue Ying felt the space ahead of him become distorted before arriving in a region of chaotic space. The surrounding space was stacked on top of another, and there were many shattered pieces with all sorts of color. It was an incomparably dazzling world.
‘I’m lost?’ Xue Ying understood the moment he saw this scene. Even Cosmos Gods could not walk out of this place.
Unless they could rely on ultra-long distance teleportation!
After observing momentarily, Xue Ying stepped into a distorted space by the side and left the place directly.
Xue Ying then appeared on a piece of stable spatial passage. This time, he was carefully proceeding ahead. Five days later, he discovered yet another lair. This time, Xue Ying did not enter the lair impetuously. Instead, he went towards a dull and desolate space closer to the lair.
This space here was still growing, and there were no living beings within.
‘Mn?’ Xue Ying peered through the black fog spherical holes. Because the lair was just next door, Xue Ying was able to discern the place exceptionally clearly.
‘Yet another gray-armored rank lair.’ Xue Ying shook his head. It was not worth much trying to exterminate lairs of this rank.
Time passed. Xue Ying’s incarnation was proceeding stealthily within the Lost World Corridor. Other than to settle his curiosity the first time which he entered the lair directly, he merely proceeded to a space on the outskirts of those lairs the subsequent times, ‘observing’ the lair from a close distance. Eventually, he finally understood that the Lost World Corridor was ultimately about half that of an ordinary sacred world. In order to find a low-graded lair, one would usually take several days. It was much harder to find a blood-armored lair. Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master with his techniques had merely found five of them.
It was ultimately an arduous task finding a lair.
Instead, Xue Ying was spending more of his concentration on cultivation. The search for lairs was only a subtask. As he proceeded, he would be scrutinizing all sorts of uniqueness the void had, deepening his understanding of the void. His knowledge of the “Walker’s Hidden Secret” was also broadening.
It was destined for Xue Ying to spend a very long time searching for traces of the lairs within the Lost World Corridor.
And in the Void Castle, within the huge palace hall, there were many Primal Chaos experts gathered in groups of two and three. Almost every all of them was incarnations.
Xue Ying had also left an incarnation here. As long as the incarnation did not battle, it was not intensive to the consumption of his heart energy in maintaining it.
“These Destruction Devils are quite vigilant. Most of them only acted in the outer region, and none dared to enter the inner region.”
“They aren’t foolish. Knowing that they can fly slowly in the inner region, they would naturally not dare to easily barge into it.”
There was a huge projection hanging in the corner of the palace hall.
This projection portrayed the entire inner and outer region. Many Destruction Devils were moving about in the outer region, and only an extreme few had entered the inner region–approximately a dozen teams. Furthermore, they were only traveling along the boundary of the outer region. It was clear that they would escape back to the outer region should things become amiss.
“Xiu xiu xiu…”
Somehow they had all obtained the same unseen order, a total of 12 Destruction Devil teams entered the inner region at the same time. They were all located near the boundary.
“Another 12 teams have entered the inner region. Who is going this time?” At that moment, Primal Chaos cultivators were saying.
“One here too.”
At that point, many Primal Chaos experts began standing. They started interacting with the Void Castle using their communication talisman.
“I have been here at the Void Castle for several days already. It is time for me to fight with these Destruction Devils.” Xue Ying stood up as well. They took the initiative to fight with the Destruction Devils, and the Destruction Devils deliberately remained at the boundary. Clearly, they wanted to grapple with the cultivators. According to the observations of the cultivators, it was beneficial for the Destruction Devils to kill the cultivators as well as it would improve their strengths.
Very soon, the Void Castle proceeded with an arrangement–12 Primal Chaos cultivators would be respectively arranged to deal against the 12 teams. The incarnations were merely used for scouting the other party’s actual power. Eventually, they still had to rely on their true bodies to exterminate the other party. To not depend on their true bodies? Even the incarnations of Cosmos Gods could not deal against some of the powerful golden-armored Destruction Devils.
