Chapter 951: Attacking the Castle
Xue Ying hyperventilated. He was carefully checking through everything within the space of the ‘golden-armored graded lair’. A golden-armored graded lair represented a continuous supply of ‘golden-armored ranked Destruction Devils’. Over an extended period, the number of golden-armored Destruction Devils that would emerge from a lair would only increase. The cultivators even suspected that Destruction Devils at the Cosmos God realm should have once been golden-armored ranked Destruction Devils!
In reality, there were 15 ‘kings’ that emerged in total.
Other than two golden-armored lairs which were destroyed earlier, there were still six left in existence! One could deduce how many ‘kings’ would appear relative to the number of golden-armored graded lairs. Furthermore, over time, the golden-armored graded lairs would nurture more of them.
In other words—
A golden-armored graded lair would at least nurture two ‘kings’ in the large batches of golden-armored Destruction Devils. There might be even more.
Hence, there would only be more ‘kings’ on the side of the Destruction Devils as time passed. The number of Destruction Devils would also increase to a horrifying stage, and the cultivators would lose without a doubt!
‘I’ve finally found a golden-armored graded lair.’ Xue Ying felt both moved and excited.
Even though the cultivators might not be sure of how much a golden-armored lair was worth, they had still publicized the bounty for finding one. The incarnations of cultivators that came to the Lost World Corridor, should they discover a ‘golden-armored graded lair’ and reported upwards, would be rewarded with a huge amount of ‘100,000 Origin World Rocks’! Hence, many cultivators would try their luck by venturing in the Lost World Corridor with their incarnations.
Even ‘Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master’s proposed price was something the cultivators were willing to accept. It was primarily because they wanted to destroy the golden-armored graded lairs.
But it’s a pity that Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master was too greedy.
He wanted ‘10,000 Origin World Rocks’ for every 100 million years spent on searching for lairs. He wanted so much despite not discovering a single golden-armored graded lair. If he spent 10 billion years searching… that would be equivalent to one million Origin World Rocks already. It was okay if he could discover something, but if he did not, then the Cosmos Gods could not afford it either.
Xue Ying’s attention was soon attracted by that ancient void tree. He was able to observe the structure with exceptional clarity through the black fog spherical holes at a close distance.
‘Its utilization of the void is too perfect.’ Xue Ying praised, ‘The Lost World Corridor is indeed the holy ground for those cultivating in the void. And this ‘golden-armored graded lair’ is the holy ground of the holy grounds.’
That day, Xue Ying sent out the second incarnation into the Lost World Corridor to continue searching for other Destruction Devil lairs. And the first incarnation remained in that sealed space cultivating by himself to observe the ‘golden-armored graded lair ancient void tree’.
Actually, strictly speaking, the four-diagrams absolute art created by Monarch Nine Cloud, the “Walker’s Hidden Secret” and the structure of the ancient void tree headed in different directions. But they could be cross-referenced.
‘I am not in a rush to report upwards. I should wait until this ancient void tree is no longer useful to me before I report upwards.’ Xue Ying thought. Even though the ancient void tree was nurturing Destruction Devils, it took a long time to even nourish a single golden-armored Destruction Devil. Every batch would have nine eggs at most, and after the nine eggs were hatched, the next batch of golden eggs would take at the shortest, 10 billion years to form, and at the longest, a trillion years. Forming devils with greater talent would require a longer time.
In the blink of an eye, it had already been 2.1 billion years that Xue Ying had been to the Void Castle. Within the huge palace hall of the Void Castle.
The incarnations of the Primal Chaos cultivators who were discussing Dao or be by themselves suddenly stood up. They were looking at the enormous scene showing in midair by the boundary of the hall. That was a projection showing the disturbances made in the outer region and the inner region by the Destruction Devils. At this moment—
There were many spots of light appearing at the same time by the boundary. They were also entering the inner region one after another while rushing in the direction of the ‘spatial barrier’.
Xue Ying and the others had powerful vision. With just a glance at those dense light spots, they were able to discern a total of 3,000 devils incoming.
“They are attacking the spatial barrier again?”
All the Primal Chaos cultivators felt their hearts tightening. Usually, when the devils provoked the cultivators, they would remain at the boundary. But now, they were venturing deep into the inner region. It was clear that their target was the ‘final spatial barrier’.
“Sou sou sou sou sou sou…”
Many figures started appearing one after another in the huge palace hall. It was to the extent that the surrounding space began warping and distorting. Many terrifying existences were coming out from within. Its power was so great that Xue Ying and the others felt aghast.
Other than the Void Castle, it was too difficult to even see so many Cosmos Gods at once, and this being their true bodies!
Just a breath of time later.
A total of 12 Cosmos Gods appeared. They came over from different places. One had to know that the majority of them did not know how to teleport through an ultra-long distance. They had to ask their subordinates to construct an ultra-long distance passage for them to come. Even so, it took a breath of time for them to rush over.
Xue Ying carefully looked. There were many Cosmos Gods whom he had never seen before.
His grand-teacher, ‘Void Primogenitor’ was a black-robed green-haired male. His eyes were gentle, and he seemed to adore all beings. He glanced at Xue Ying before turning back to other Cosmos Gods.
“They are going to attack the spatial barrier once again.” More than half the final realm existences from the five great sacred worlds and primal chaos void were gathered here. Their auras were vast and unfathomable. There was a male who had many shackles surrounding him—’Ancestor Sorcerer’. Ancestor Sorcerer was currently speaking solemnly, “Even though they have been defeated many times, we can’t be too careless as things will be disastrous as long as we were defeated once, and for the spatial barrier to be broken through.”
“Mn, then we will go according to the old plan?” A giant with an enormous body that seemed to be made from black magma rock stood there stating coldly.
Nobody present disagreed with him.
“Then let’s proceed.” Ancestor Sorcerer who had a thin and small body wearing a green robe declared.
In the Ancient Sacred World.
Within an enormous inner bath, piping hot steam was rising.
Sacred Master was immersed in this lake water. He sat beside the lake when suddenly, he turned over towards the distant ‘Lost World Corridor’. Even though the Ancient Sacred World was boundlessly far away from the Lost World Corridor, Sacred Master was able to observe what was happening. A strange, weird smile appearing on his face: “These Destruction Devils are thinking of sneaking into the five great sacred worlds once again?”
“As their number increases, there will be more kings emerging too. I currently do not have much time, and there are also those old men giving me problems.” Sacred Master shook his head softly. He then closed his eyes and continued enjoying himself in the bath.
Within the primal chaos void, Heaven Green World.
Heaven Green World was one of the small remnant piece left behind after the primitive Ancient Sacred World shattered. It was much smaller than the Nine Cloud Great Land; it was at most one-hundredth that of the Nine Cloud Great Land.
And the Heaven Green World was dominated by ‘Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master’.
‘Hmph hmph hmph, they are about to attack the spatial barrier again?’
Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master stood there on the mountain peak. He had a pair of scarlet red eyebrows, and his eyes were icy.
He was the proudest and most aloof expert amongst those at the ninth level strength. He even looked down on several Cosmos Gods because they had the risk of dying when facing the Sacred Master. But he was different. He had an avatar that could travel through ultra-long distance. Nobody had discovered his avatar at least until now.
Even Sacred Master wasn’t too willing to become enemies with those of the Myriad Realm Tavern Master lineage.
An enemy that could not be killed was the hardest enemy.
‘Very good. With those Destruction Devils attacking the Void Castle time after time, the Cosmos Gods will begin to feel the threat.’ Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master thought, ‘They will become more anxious over time, and there will finally be a day that they promise to my conditions.’
The Cosmos Gods requested him to help them.
And Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master’s request was relatively expensive, so both parties did not come to an agreement.
‘This is a rare opportunity for me. I can earn a huge amount of Origin World Rocks.’ Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master was not anxious. He believed that the Cosmos Gods would eventually give in to his conditions. As for offending those Cosmos Gods? He did not care at all!
