Book 12 – Immortal Strife (ch1010-1540)
Chapter 1133 An Army Surrounds The Formation
Jiang Zhuliu and Yin Miaomiao raised their heads in unison, and they saw that over a thousand Cosmos Beasts were already waiting at the blood colored swamp in the distance since a long time ago. They were like a black mass of tidewater that emanated a monstrous and fierce imposing aura.
“Five lords that are equivalent to experts in the top three hundred of the Ascensio Immortal Rankings, two thousand Cosmos Beasts equivalent to Mysterious Immortal Realm experts, and one Whitetail King that can rival an expert in the top ten of the Ascensio Immortal Rankings. It would be a miracle if such a force is unable to kill Chen Xi.” Jiang Zhuliu’s spirits were raised when he saw this, and he said swiftly via voice transmission, “Alas, it’s a pity that if we’re able to hunt and kill Whitetail King and these subordinates of his, then would we have to worry about being unable to ascend into the top ten ranks in terms of Starpoints?”
Yin Miaomiao puckered her lips and said, “Earning Starpoints will be a breeze once we converge with the disciples of the Zuoqiu Clan. The important matter at hand is to eliminate Chen Xi first.”
As they spoke, Whitetail King had already walked out from within the bronze treasured carriage, and he stood before the vast army with his hands behind his back.
“Greetings, My King!” Five figures with monstrous auras flew over before bending down to a knee. They were the five lords subordinate to Whitetail King, and all of them had taken human form.
“Greetings My King!” In the next moment, the almost two thousand Cosmos Beasts present here spoke in unison and in an orderly manner, and their imposing aura shook the nine heavens.
Jiang Zhuliu and Yin Miaomiao were both shocked by this scene, and they didn’t dare underestimate Whitetail King, who was in human form before them.
Both of them were very clearly aware that if it wasn’t for their relationship with the Zuoqiu Clan, they would have probably been torn into pieces by the vast army before them.
Whitetail King waved his hand and said, “Nine Spirits, this is your territory. Is the target I asked you to find here?”
A black robed man hesitated for a moment before he bowed and said, “My King, the target is at the area 1,500km from here. Presently, I and the other four lords have already sealed up the Bloodspirit Swamp, so it’s impossible for the target to escape.”
Whitetail King nodded, and then his gaze inadvertently swept the surrounding army before he suddenly frowned and said, “Could it be that all your subordinates aren’t here?”
Lord Nine Spirits’ heart shook, and he knew he was unable to conceal it any longer. So he immediately spoke about the incident from before.
“He killed almost a hundred of your subordinates by setting up a grand formation?” A wisp of bright light flashed within Whitetail King’s eyes, and he was slightly surprised.
Everyone else including Yin Miaomiao and Jiang Zhuliu were surprised.
Nine Spirits summoned up the courage to answer bitterly. “They were too greedy and fell to that native of the three dimensions’ trap. If they could have been a little bit more careful, then such a great loss wouldn’t have occurred…”
The more he spoke, the weaker his voice became, and he seemed to be slightly lacking in confidence.
Whitetail King’s brows knit together to form three lines, and then he said, “Could it be that he’s a Talisman Formation Grandmaster?”
When she saw Whitetail King was slightly hesitating to act, Yin Miaomiao suddenly said, “I can help you break open the formation.”
Whitetail King glanced doubtfully at Yin Miaomiao.
“What? You don’t believe her? Miaomiao is from an ancient clan renowned in the Dao of Talismans, the Yin Clan. She’s also an outstanding Talisman Formation Grandmaster!” Jiang Zhuliu grunted coldly from the side.
Whitetail King’s expression eased up when he heard this, and then he said while seeming to be not quite convinced, “Alright, I’ll believe you this time!”
As he spoke, he waved his hand and said to the five lords, “Set out! Capture the target!”
Waves of fierce roars resounded as the vast beast army transformed into a surging black cloud that covered the heavens and the earth as it charged towards the depths of Bloodspirit Swamp.
A wisp of bright light blinked in an area of 50km from the pitch black rock as the center, and then it vanished without a trace.
But during that instant, a terrifying aura that terrified the soul surged into appearance, and it caused the heavens and the earth in the entire Bloodspirit Swamp to tremble!
Chen Xi finally heaved a sigh of relief when he saw this. His countenance was slightly pale while a wisp of exhaustion was present between his brows, and it was impossible to be eliminated in a short period of time.
I never expected that the Major Thunderclap Devilbreak Slaughter Formation already possessed the ability to form a link with the might of the gods of the heavens and the earth…
Chen Xi felt fortunate in his heart. Earlier, he’d exerted all his might and practically exhausted all the immortal materials in his possession, and not only had he repaired the Minor Thunderclap Devilbreak Slaughter Formation, he’d even refined and set it up once more in the form of the Major Thunderclap Devilbreak Slaughter Formation.
However, to his surprise, at the final moment, he almost suffered backlash and caused the entire grand formation to be destroyed because his Dao of Talismans was still unable to link up with the gods of the heavens and the earth.
Fortunately, he was able to stabilize the formation with Darklightning Divine Talisman in the end.
The only flaw was that because this grand formation didn’t possess might of the gods of the heavens and the earth, its might was greatly reduced. However, even then, even if it was unable to kill an existence at the Golden Immortal Realm, it was capable of easily trapping a Golden Immortal for a short period of time.
As for a Mysterious Immortal Realm expert, unless it was an existence at the level of Zhen Lu, Ji Xuanbing, and Zhao Mengli, otherwise, being trapped in the formation meant certain death.
Chen Xi took a few deep breaths. With the assistance of the Dark Parasol Sapling, the Immortal Force that he’d completely exhausted was recovering swiftly, and it didn’t affect his ability to do battle.
“Earlier… Earlier…” The nearby Wei Na that had transformed into a white rabbit spoke with a stutter.
Chen Xi felt helpless and felt that this woman was really cowardly. He sat casually on a rock and said, “Speak frankly.”
“Oh.” Wei Na nodded, and then she said hurriedly, “Earlier, I heard that there seems to be a Talisman Formation Grandmaster called Miaomiao, and she said she’ll break the formation open…”
Chen Xi’s eyes narrowed.
Sure enough, Whitetail was really instructed by the Zuoqiu Clan to deploy so many Cosmos Beasts here, and Jiang Zhuliu and Yin Miaomiao are probably amongst them.
“Why don’t… Why don’t we flee?” Wei Na asked weakly.
Chen Xi knew that Wei Na was worried of the unimaginable consequences from being captured by Lord Nine Spirits. “Don’t worry. This formation is my absolute territory, and none of them can hope to break it open!”
As he finished speaking, his tone carried confidence and arrogance because the Dao of Talismans was the field that he was most skilled in!
Wei Na seemed to have been affected by the confidence in Chen Xi’s voice, and she actually became much quieter and wasn’t terrified, uneasy, and shivering like she was before.
After that, she suddenly realized something and cried out with surprise. “So you’re that ‘Chen Xi’?”
Chen Xi glanced at her and was slightly speechless.
This woman is clearly extremely intelligent, yet she frequently acts stupid. Why has she only guessed my identity now?
But right after that, he couldn’t be bothered to think about all of this because the dark cloud in the distance was surging over from extremely far away. Shockingly, it was a dark cloud formed from numerous Cosmos Beasts.
Chen Xi stood up and said, “Wait here and don’t go anywhere.”
His green clothes and long hair fluttered as he spoke, and then his white and slender hands flashed about swiftly to form a profound and obscure seal. After that, his arms suddenly spread open as if he was embracing the world!
At this instant, a myriad of dazzling thunderstorms rained down from midair within an area of 50km!
The thunderbolts transformed into crimson, gold, green, silver, and black bolts of lightning that zig-zagged about white emanated resplendent light, and all of them were suffused with a terrifying aura that horrified the soul!
Lightning was represented by the trigram of Zhen. Amongst the numerous Grand Dao Laws, the Dao of Lightning was the top in terms of possessing an aura of slaughter and might!
It was precisely because of this that all the tribulation of the world descended in the form of lightning, and it represented the most merciless, terrifying, and upright side of the Heaven Dao.
Wei Na was instantly stunned. Chen Xi stood alone beneath the myriad of bolts of lightning. His arms were spread into the air while his tall figure was bathed beneath the layer upon layer of lightning. He was like an emperor of lightning that stood high above in the world, and time and space seemed to have frozen at this moment…
This scene was bound to be branded into the depths of Wei Na’s memory, and it would be impossible to eliminate forever.
The sound of thunder danced through the sky like the roars of fiendgods, and the vast beast army that flew over was terrified to the point of going pale and stopped on the spot when faced with such a sight.
Whitetail King stopped abruptly as well. His gaze flickered repeatedly as he stared for a long time at the grand formation in the distance that surged with thunderstorms, and then he turned to look at the nearby Yin Miaomiao.
“Aren’t you a Talisman Formation Grandmaster? Go, break that grand formation open!” Whitetail King pointed to the distant grand formation with a murderous expression that revealed a trace of anger.
