Chapter 1211 – A Gray Eye
And on the other side.
The team containing the natives and the cultivators like Xue Ying had rushed into the clans-ground one after another. Even though the clans-ground was protected by an unseen ripple, it was weak.
“Cultivators from the Realm Heart Great Land!” The Grand Elder felt immensely angry. He had never encountered an illusory realm which felt so uncomfortable. That illusory realm made him feel bewildered and enticed, it was continuously pulling on his soul. He had already broken through and reached the Emperor level, yet he still had to fork out part of his heartforce to resist against that illusory realm, causing his combat efficiency to reduce greatly.
His techniques were originally crude. Now that they had become much weaker, he could barely suppress Swordmaster anymore. Swordmaster could still easily fly and escape from him.
Charging past the ripple, they saw the towering mountain which was the clans-ground.
Xue Ying began condensing many avatars the moment he saw that mountain. “Sou sou sou”, many white-robed young men began flying in various directions! This was a total of more than 10,000 avatars. In this expedition to the Broken Teeth Mountain Range, his primary combat force were the nine avatars! The other avatars were much weaker and were barely at the ordinary Cosmos God level.
But it sufficed to ‘seek treasures’. Xue Ying casually let out several hundred avatars.
“Weng!” Insect Ancestor even guffawed. His black robe transformed into countless insects that flew in all directions seeking for treasures.
“Damn.” The Grand Elder felt incensed. During most of the time, they–the Death Disaster Clan–were the ones that devoured experts from other clans. When was it that others could charge into their clans-ground and steal their treasures?
What a pity.
Almost all the elite Death Disaster clansmen within the clans-ground had retreated. Because they knew that facing against the terrifying soul technique cast by the cultivator from Realm Heart Great Land, even Kings could not survive, much less those who were weaker!
Broken Teeth Mountain Range was a place created by ‘Yuan’. It was also a training ground provided by ‘Yuan’ for the cultivators.
Dangers and treasures existed hand-in-hand here!
But there were too many sky-floating islands. The treasures that could be found in one sky-floating island was limited! Furthermore, the higher-ups from the Death Disaster Clan had treated them as precious items, and had already hidden them away. Only some that the Death Disaster Clan disliked and disdained would be thrown outside.
The ‘Death Disaster Clan’ was ultimately a different type of lifeform as compared to cultivators! Most items that were incredibly precious to the cultivators were useless to the Death Disaster Clan.
Instead, it was the natives and the ‘Death Disaster Clan’ that treated similar items as treasures.
Xue Ying’s several hundred avatars were flying in different directions seeking for treasures.
“That is?” One of his avatars discovered a waterfall. At the base of the waterfall, there was a bizarre stone.
This stone was black. It contained a luster. If one carefully examined it, the surface of the black stone contained layers of patterns stacked. Those patterns felt like scales; they were beautiful.
“Mysterious Scaled Rock?” Xue Ying immediately recognized it. He flew over hurriedly. This avatar of his controlled the void before grabbing the pieces of Mysterious Scaled Rocks.
Mysterious Scaled Rocks were very precious. They were immensely tough–unparalleled existences could not destroy them easily. They could only be used when mixed with other auxiliary ingredients when refining a weapon, and were definitely precious materials used for refinement.
“So many Mysterious Scaled Rocks? A total of 625 of them?” Xue Ying felt pleased.
With so many Mysterious Scaled Rocks, their value could be comparable to a peak-graded secret treasure!
“This is indeed the Broken Teeth Mountain Range. The first thing I discovered is comparable to a peak-graded secret treasure.” Xue Ying felt incredibly happy. But in reality, how many cultivators from the Realm Heart Great Land could kill their way to the core clans-ground of a sky-floating island in Broken Teeth Mountain Range? Even if they could, how many had this many avatars to rapidly search the place for treasures?
Prior to entering, Xue Ying had discussed with Swordmaster and Insect Ancestor–the treasures they found in Broken Teeth Mountain Range would be distributed according to how much they contributed! Of course, who ever needed an item immensely could also take it away, but he had to repatriate the other two parties.
After all, in their group, Xue Ying specialized in attacking a group with his soul technique! And Swordmaster was the most powerful in terms of direct combat force. As for Insect Ancestor, he was responsible for seeking treasures since his many insects were the best way to do so.
Xue Ying’s several hundred avatars, other than finding those Mysterious Scaled Rocks, he did not find any other more items.
A terrifying aura erupted.
Xue Ying, Insect Ancestor, and Swordmaster immediately focused on that particular location deep in the mountains where the natives killed their way in. Xue Ying had avatars that were close to this place too.
The erupted aura was seriously frightening. It was so grand that it caused the expressions on Xue Ying, Swordmaster, and Insect Ancestor to change. There was even black fog formed from death aura condensing high above the clans-ground mountain. It was forcefully pressing down on the entire area.
“Blood Flame Clan? You are here to steal my Spiritual Yin Fruit again?” A grand voice sounded that caused the entire world to tremble.
“It’s the Emperor!”
“It is awakening now!”
“We should hurry off!”
Swordmaster, Insect Ancestor, and Xue Ying immediately discovered that things were amiss.
“Hurry up and leave! My insects discovered four treasures. What about you guys?” Many insects began flying towards Insect Ancestor, condensing back into his black robe.
“I discovered one.” Xue Ying replied. His avatars were also flying over from various places.
“Hurry up! Currently, the natives are pinning down the Emperor. But in a while, he will come and deal with us.” Swordmaster anxiously added.
“Monarch Flying Snow, i request for you to help our Blood Flame Clan. My Blood Flame Clan will definitely thank you greatly after that.” An anxious voice transmitted into the ears of Xue Ying.
“I’ll leave several avatars behind to help them out.” Xue Ying mentioned it to Swordmaster.
He had many avatars.
Of the avatars he left behind, there was only one with a powerful combat strength! The other were weaker, and would primarily be used to beguile the enemies.
Swordmaster waved his hand, keeping Insect Ancestor and Xue Ying into his Eden Treasure.
Within this Eden Treasure, Xue Ying’s willpower was not affected. He could still execute his illusory realm technique outside of it.
After keeping his comrades, Swordmaster no longer had any worries and immediately focused on escaping!
His speed rose to a maximum! This time, they had acquired sufficient rewards from this sky-floating island. In order to escape, he still required quite some time. Swordmaster was not confident if he could escape from the ‘Emperor’! Hence, he had to hurry off. If this body died, it was fine if he lost his avatar. What was worse would be the loss of all treasures.
Coming over to the Broken Teeth Mountain Range, on the one hand, he came to temper himself, and on the other hand, he came to collect more treasures! Some treasures were helpful to cultivation.
“Chase!” Grand Elder was dead-set on chasing after him. He was clear that the moment Swordmaster ‘threw him behind’, given Swordmaster’s abillity at concealing his aura, it would take some time for Swordmaster to be discovered.
Hence, he had to ‘follow’ Swordmaster all the while! When the Emperor came, it would be time for these invaders to pay the price!
In the other region.
Within Elder Hall.
Xue Ying’s ultra-strong avatar had arrived. He easily saw what was happening in the Elder Hall with a glance.
A strange piece of blood crystal was seen floating on the forehead of His Majesty Blood Flame Ji, causing his strength to soar by a few times to reach the unparalleled level! His subordinate clansmen were in a combat formation, and all of them had a droplet of blood floating on their forehead–their auras were much stronger.
But the enemies were similarly powerful.
The Second Elder, Third Elder, they were all comparable to unparalleled existences! Even King Fu Suo and other Kings were powerful.
More importantly, the one currently suppressing ‘His Majesty Blood Flame Ji’ was a black giant! His entire body was black and had three eyes. Each movement of his enormous arms brought along some feeling of profundity, forcing His Majesty Blood Flame Ji to spurt out blood every single strike. Fortunately, His Majesty Blood Flame Ji was a native and had incredibly strong fleshy body.
“Risking your life? Burning your bloodline? It’s useless!” This black giant sent another slap, forcing His Majesty Blood Flame Ji down underground. Blood Flame Ji’s fleshy body warped and recovered its original shape. As he battled savagely, he was also rushing towards a unique slanted tree by the side of the lake.
“Why is he staking his life so much for that strange tree?”
Xue Ying did not care about anything else.
He simply use all his strength to cast down an illusory realm.
An illusory realm descended and covered the entire Elder Hall. The expression of Second Elder, Third Elder, and other Kings paled greatly. They immediately teleported and tried to escape. As for ‘King Fu Qi’, because he understood that the enemies had killed their way into the clans-ground, he had already escaped far away. He was clear that he would lose his life in a single exchange against that terrifying cultivator from the Realm Heart Great Land.
The other Death Disaster clansmen were fleeing in all directions.
But the ‘Emperor’ remained unmoved.
“Mn?” This black giant turned over to the newly-appeared white-robed young man just outside the Elder Hall. When the terrifying illusory realm descended, the Emperor had to use part of his heartforce to resist against it, causing his strength to decrease by 30%.
Even though he was powerful–-way more than the Grand Elder!
In reality, he and the Grand Elder were both Emperors! The soul of the Grand Elder had a qualitative difference from Second Elder and the others. But there was no huge differences between the Emperor and the Grand Elder.
“Hurry!” His Majesty Blood Flame Ji immediately transmitted to his subordinates when he saw this, “Snatch the Spiritual Yin Fruit!”
“The Spiritual Yin Fruit!”
Those Blood Flame clansmen rushed over in frantically.
Xue Ying was also observing that bizarre tree. The lake where this tree grew was black in color. This tree grew out in a slanted angle to a height of about 33 meters. The ‘skin’ on the two fruits growing on it seemed thin–it was possible to see the revolution of light within it.
“It seems this fruit is extraordinary, though the intelligence report hasn’t recorded it before.” Xue Ying suddenly paid attention to the peak of this bizarre tree. There was a ‘gray eye’ on it. This gray eye seemed to be inlaid into the tree. The might it emitted constantly covered the Elder Hall.
It’s just that at this moment, the aura produced by the Emperor was overwhelming. Hence, Xue Ying did not notice that gray eye previously.
But looking over at it now–
Xue Ying’s eyes met with that gray eye.
