Chapter 955: Breaking the Foundation
The golden-armored graded space was essential to the Destruction Devils. It was heavily guarded and patrolled, and even its entrance was disguised. Nevertheless, only a single golden-armored Destruction Devil was defending the inner section of this vast space.
The Destruction Devils were clear that the moment the cultivators were able to enter the inner region of the lair, it was pointless even if they arranged more golden-armored Destruction Devils.
Suddenly, the space within distorted. A black-robed Xue Ying appeared within this lair. Looking at the scene within, he revealed a look of delight.
“Who?” The golden-armored Destruction Devil guard abruptly turned over. With a glance, he saw the distant black-robed cultivator, causing his expression to change immediately! They were discovered?
“King! The third golden-armored graded lair has been discovered. The incarnation of a cultivator has appeared inside.” The golden-armored Destruction Devil reported immediately.
The ‘kings’ who obtained the news were aghast. None of them had the ultra-long distance teleportation technique, and it would require some time for them to travel over.
“Die for me!” While this golden-armored Destruction Devil guard communicated to the kings, without waiting for an order, he took the initiative to act. One could see a huge black cloud surrounding the distant Xue Ying to which Xue Ying reacted with a teleport. It was clear Xue Ying had reached such high level in the void that he could easily pull apart the distance between him and the golden-armored Destruction Devil. The Destruction Devil could momentarily not reach up to him.
Being a Voidwalker and someone who cultivated in the four-diagrams absolute art of Monarch Nine Cloud, Xue Ying was someone who reached high attainments in the void. Furthermore, he had even been training bitterly for 20 billion years within the Lost World Corridor. Many Cosmos Gods could not reach up to his current control of the void. Even an incarnation of his could arrogantly look down on many other Primal Chaos existences in this aspect.
Closely following that, the inner space of the golden-armored lair warped, and two figures came walking out.
One was a beautiful and classy girl–she was Jade Light Master. Jade Light Master’s beautiful eyes swept across the region. Her vision landed on that distant ancient void tree. Seeing the few golden eggs that were formed on the ancient void tree, her eyes revealed a dazzle. With a wave of her hands, a qin appeared. She then plucked on the strings…
A musical composition formed from it. It had even created fluctuations that the naked eyes could see, spreading out in all directions.
By the side of Jade Light Master, there was the green-haired Void Primogenitor. Void Primogenitor coldly glanced around him, though seeing the ancient void tree made him excited.
‘It is too late!’ That golden-armored Destruction Devil guard who was chasing after Xue Ying’s incarnation felt despair after seeing Jade Light Master and Void Primogenitor arriving.
The moment the Cosmos Gods from the cultivators arrived, they would no longer have any hopes of salvaging the situation!
Being a golden-armored graded ancient void tree that was of the highest grade, even though it was firm and stable, when Jade Light Master personally acted, those golden eggs turned into powder under the power of the musical composition. As for the ancient void tree, it began warping. After withstanding for two breaths of time, the entire ancient void tree collapsed, and this space also started collapsing.
As for that golden-armored Destruction Devil guard, he was similarly destroyed under the fluctuation from the musical composition.
As space collapsed, Jade Light Master and Void Primogenitor directly teleported away. As for Xue Ying’s disguised incarnation, he had long taken the initiative to dissipate.
Lost World Corridor.
The five ‘kings’ of the Destruction Devils gathered.
“How could this be?”
“We have guarded the place really strictly. There are also many patrols protecting the place. We have even disguised the entrance, so how could it still be discovered by the cultivators?”
The five kings were furious.
They did not care even if they lost a hundred lower graded lairs. Even if they lost more than half their ‘blood-armored graded lairs’, they could face it calmly. Nevertheless, every single ‘golden-armored graded lair’ was vital to them! This was the true foundation of their Destruction Devils, and the current 15 ‘kings’ that had emerged since the start were golden-armored Destruction Devils previously. Everything originated from golden-armored graded lairs!
The golden-armored graded lairs could nurture many batches of golden-armored Destruction Devils, and there could be ‘kings’ emerging from within.
They had felt heartache from the loss of two golden-armored graded lairs in the past, but at that time, they were too weak and had no choice. Over time as they grew stronger, the defenses and patrols were fortified. It had been a long time since the last golden-armored graded lair had been discovered.
“Currently, we only have six golden-armored graded lairs. Another one has been discovered.” Emperor Jun sat there. His long tail circled around the place, and his eyes were emitting a blood-colored light amidst his thin face.
Even if more than a hundred golden-armored Destruction Devils died, they could be replaced over time.
But the destruction of the lairs meant breaking their foundation!
“According to the intelligence, the cultivators did not come from the entrance. Instead, they appeared directly from within.”
“It should be ultra-long distance teleportation.”
“Right, it should be a cultivator who was teleporting through ultra-long distance, and an incarnation of his has coincidentally landed in the golden-armored graded lair.”
The other kings could only sigh.
Even though they could not teleport through an ultra-long distance, they still had relevant information regarding the cultivators after living with them. They knew that the further the distance of ‘ultra-long distance teleportation’, the greater the deviation! It was impossible for them to have a ‘spatial marking’ on the golden-armored graded lair. Instead, it should be a huge deviation when the cultivator teleported through an ultra-long distance.
And this deviation had led him directly into the golden-armored graded lair.
After all, over the long periods when the cultivators came in seeking for traces of the lairs, it would undoubtedly be probable for them to coincidentally end up in a golden-armored graded lair.
“Their luck is truly too good.”
“He actually coincidentally teleported into our golden-armored graded lair?”
They felt sullen.
Emperor Jun’s eyes remained cold. After remaining silent for a while, did he finally speak: “Investigate. Think of ways to find out who is the one that discovered the golden-armored graded lair! We must ascertain that it is because he is lucky, and not because he has some unique cultivation technique.”
If it were just luck, then the threat would not be significant.
But if the other party had a technique to investigate them, then the Destruction Devils would be in for huge trouble!
Within the Void Castle, it was filled with hurrays.
“Hahaha, this time after we destroyed another golden-armored graded lair, we have greatly reduced the rise of their power. It has been a long time since we last had such a huge victory.” Forefather Tian Yu said while beaming from ear to ear. The other Cosmos Gods present including Ancestor Sorcerer, World Ancestor, and others also had a rare smile on their face. It had indeed been a long time since they last had such a huge victory.
In the early periods, when they faced the Destruction Devils, they could suppress them totally. They had killed four ‘kings’ one after another and even destroyed two golden-armored graded lairs.
But nowadays, those ‘kings’ dared to kill their way to the spatial barrier before retreating safely! The cultivators might still have an absolute advantage over the Destruction Devils, but they could no longer kill the Destruction Devils. It had also been a long time since they last discovered traces of the golden-armored graded lairs. They even invited ‘Scarlet-Browed Mountain Master’, spending a considerable amount of Origin World Rocks yet to no avail.
“The lairs are their foundation. After cutting part of their roots, we have more time to grow stronger.” Ancestor Sorcerer chuckled and nodded.
“Judging by what we guessed earlier–kings originate from the golden-armored graded lairs–it is crucial for us to destroy their golden-armored graded lairs. It is highly possible that the Destruction Devils are turning mad now. Regardless, many of their members have invaded and hidden in our five great sacred worlds.” Void Primogenitor looked towards Xue Ying who stood by the side, “The moment news about Dong Bo Xue Ying discovering the golden-armored graded lairs is spread, the Destruction Devils who have hidden in our world will likely bring trouble to him.”
“Mn.” The other Cosmos Gods nodded too.
“This matter has to be kept a secret.” Forefather Tian Yu said, “It must not be leaked.”
“Indeed it cannot be leaked.” Ancestor Sorcerer nodded too. His gaze landed on Xue Ying before mentioning with a peal of laughter, “Hall Master Dong Bo, did you discover this golden-armored graded lair by chance, or do you truly have some unique cultivation technique?”
