Chapter 949: Imperial Dragon Ninth Transformation
It was hardest forming something from nothing. The moment the egg was formed, it would be much easier for it to hatch.
“With two devils having the shadowless talent, we will have an easier time.”
“Previously, we were able to send the ‘kings’ out all because of General Fu Qian’s help. There is currently only General Fu Qian with the shadowless talent. The moment he dies, we will be doomed. But now that we have two devils having the shadowless talent, and the chance of one of them dying is meager, we don’t have to worry much anymore.” The present six ‘kings’ were all watching that egg joyously as it gradually turned half-translucent again.
General Fu Qian also had the shadowless talent.
The monitoring of the cultivators in the outer region void and the inner region void was useless against General Fu Qian. He could easily reach the final ‘spatial barrier ‘stealthily.
Alas, that ‘spatial barrier’ was also the final level of resistance of the cultivators. The cultivators augmented it with all sorts of techniques, and even Cosmos Gods would take a long time trying to break through it. General Fu Qian depended on his talent to permeate through the spatial barrier. But this period of crossing through it would create some minute disturbances.
Clearly, the augmenting techniques placed in the spatial barrier had some trivial influence on General Fu Qian still.
This ‘minute disturbance’ would alarm the cultivators if it appeared during ordinary times! Even though the ‘shadowless talent’ was very formidable, the cultivators had fought with the Sacred Master until now, making them very experienced in dealing against the Destruction Devils even if it was a new talent. Furthermore, given that this was merely a devil at the ‘Primal Chaos strength’, the cultivators would likely have some ways of dealing against it.
This was not something the Destruction Devils could afford to lose!
Previously, they did not mind paying the price to kill their way to the spatial barrier. During this attack, it created a brutal fluctuation that made it hard for the minute disturbances to be discovered.
“Wait until this little chap is given birth and for his strength to be consolidated. By then, we can begin the next war.” A violet-armored male with wings said, “Currently, eight kings have left the void before, and the three of us haven’t. The few of us do want to have a look at the world of the cultivators while learning and absorbing from some of the cultivators’ techniques. It might be possible for us to have another breakthrough like ‘Emperor Jun’.”
“It is time for us to leave. We have been staying in the Lost World Corridor, and they have merely sent some techniques over. We have yet to genuinely experience the world of the cultivators. When can we breakthrough if that’s the case?”
“With two devils having the shadowless talent, we will have an easier time leaving.”
Currently, 15 ‘kings’ have emerged on the side of the Destruction Devils. During the early period, they were overall weaker and had suffered from losses and death frequently. A total of four ‘kings’ died across battles. Over time, they became stronger and began working together. It became much harder for the cultivators to kill another ‘king’ after that.
Currently, five of them were outside disguised and traveling around the world. They were even learning all sorts of cultivation techniques.
The other six remained within the Lost World Corridor! This was because they had to maintain a minimum strength back at their world.
Unless a new ‘king’ appeared, otherwise, for a ‘king’ to go out, another ‘king’ outside had to return, ensuring the safety of the Lost World Corridor. That was the consensus reached. Even though they felt that those Destruction Devils who were controlled by the desire to kill were fools, ‘kings’ were ultimately grown from them.
Being a king, their desires were different from those fools.
They had broken through the impulse, regaining control of themselves. They sought to become stronger! Much stronger! And to become the strongest existence in this primal chaos void! Even though being a king, they would frequently kill too, they were not killing others because of ‘impulse’. Instead, they sought to kill to acquire more ‘unique energy’ and become stronger.
“From now on, we will guard the eighth golden-armored lair until this new fellow appears. We must ensure the safety of this lair.”
“We must not let the past repeat–two golden-armored lairs have been destroyed.”
The six ‘kings’ agreed on this unanimously.
If there was merely a ‘king’ protecting the place, it was impossible for him to defend this place against the onslaught of a group of Cosmos Gods from the cultivators’ side! But with six of them working together, even though they might not obtain victory, they were 100% certain of protecting this place.
They were also interacting with the five Kings in the outside world, proceeding with negotiation.
Very soon, everything was arranged.
After cultivating for an extended period in the outside world, other than the tremendous initial results, it would become much harder for the Destruction Devils to grow after that. These kings were willing to return to the Lost World Corridor occasionally.
The second Destruction Devil with the ‘shadowless talent’ was gradually coming to life. The six ‘kings’ protected the lair silently.
The cultivators continued fighting and killing the Destruction Devils just like always!
The Destruction Devils were also frequently provoking the cultivators. They did not care about suffering from losses since their goals were to become stronger. Their current goal was to break through the desire to slaughter and become ‘kings’. The stronger the Destruction Devil, the more he hated being controlled by this impulse. It was just that the impulse was terrifyingly strong that even golden-armored Destruction Devils at the ninth level strength could merely control this impulse temporarily and prevent it from bursting out.
There were many deaths, but many more were growing stronger over the years.
In the blink of an eye, it had been close to 10 billion years since Xue Ying arrived at the Void Castle.
His illusory technique was indeed formidable. During this period of 10 billion years, there were a total of five ‘golden-armored Destruction Devils’ and more than 100 blood-armored Destruction Devils dying in his hands. Ultimately, those Destruction Devils that entered the inner region to battle, even if they were golden-armored rank, not all of them were as strong as those Xue Ying met during his first time.
Xue Ying met three golden-armored Destruction Devils during his first battle, with one at the ninth level and two at the peak eighth level. This was considered a powerful lineup.
Most golden-armored Destruction Devils Xue Ying met, though, would not be as strong–he only met some at the seventh level or eighth level.
Xue Ying’s illusory technique was able to slightly influence devils at the peak of the eighth level. Thus, he was able to succeed in killing five golden-armored Destruction Devils. During the fall of the golden-armored Destruction Devils, the fate of the blood-armored Destruction Devils need not be mentioned. Even though the ‘Destruction Devils’ remained alert against Xue Ying’s illusory realm technique, they still had to go out and temper themselves. They were able to tolerate some sacrifices. What they could do is to be more alert, and coordinate with those Destruction Devils that were stronger in the spiritual aspect.
Killing so many Destruction Devils…
Xue Ying was able to absorb their unique energy. The effect was equivalent to consuming 20,000 Origin World Rocks.
It’s a pity that this unique energy could not be sold.
Xue Ying was still quite satisfied with his harvest. He felt that over time, Xue Ying would definitely be able to hunt more devils down! Furthermore, over time, being the strongest expert in the Dao of Mirage across the history of cultivators, Xue Ying’s understanding of the ‘Dao of Mirage’ was deepening too. He had altered the ‘illusory world structure’ of his ninth transformation of Vermillion Nightmare inheritance multiple times.
Because this Vermillion Nightmare inheritance would firstly, strengthen his soul and secondly, it was to allow it to fuse with three other inheritances more perfectly.
Just the inheritance’s illusory world structure was not perfect; it was merely at the ‘eighth level Star Pagoda strength’.
One had to know… that the ninth sword of the ’13 Apocalyptic Swords’ was also the last sword at the Primal Chaos realm. It was a move at the ninth level. Of course, this sword had already enhanced part of the Great Dao of Cosmos.
His Dao of Mirage was improving towards the ‘Mirage Cosmos’. Every single step was arduous. The illusory world of the ‘Vermillion Nightmare inheritance’ which Xue Ying modified multiple times had improved the power of the illusory realm, but it was not a qualitative transformation.
‘It is still too difficult for me to rely on just the Dao of Mirage alone to grasp a move at the ninth level Star Pagoda strength.’ Xue Ying understood this point, ‘Comparatively speaking, it is better for me to come out with the third style of the Destruction Flower.’
Within the cultivation room.
Xue Ying was entirely covered in a layer of black-plated armor. His hands were also encased in black scales emitting some faint light. The killing aura was wholly retained in his body. Xue Ying had finally reached great perfection in his ‘Imperial Dragon inheritance’ after fighting for close to 10 billion years in this Void Castle–the ninth transformation realm.
Xue Ying had the foundation to create the ‘third style of Destruction Flower’ with his current realm of the Dao of Mirage and Dao of Slaughter.
But to succeed in creating it? That was extremely difficult.
As for the ninth level move made purely from the Dao of Mirage or the ‘Apocalyptic Ninth Sword’ from the Dao of Slaughter, those were much more difficult. Actually, speaking from its essence, the difficulty of creating them was similar to creating the third style of the Destruction Flower. But Xue Ying had the experience of forming the first style of Destruction Flower when he was at the Unity realm. After experiencing this ‘absolute perfection’, in addition to the guidance of the ‘stone mirror’, it had drastically reduced the difficulty of forming the third style of Destruction Flower.
