Chapter 478: God Burial Abyss’ Shocking Change
Shentu Nantian had already been in this confined space for a day and night, but he still remained in meditation.
Cultivation was not something that could be rushed. To become a peerless Great Emperor, not only did one need extraordinary talent and fated luck, one also needed to have the mindset to harden oneself.
Before reading an ancient supreme martial art work, one need a bath and incense. This was not some useless ritual but to condition one’s mind to its optimal state.
Shentu Nantian was doing exactly that right now.
As Shentu Nantian entered an ethereal state, he opened his eyes and slammed down with one hand as the black disk array floated in the air and began to slowly rotate.
Injecting his energy inside, the images within the disk array immediately appeared.
The huge roc appeared and following that the black-armored warrior stabbed with his lance while riding the nightmare beast!
Seeing this lance appear, Shentu Nantian’s pupils constricted. He felt like there was an invisible hand pinching his heart, causing it to stop beating. He felt his blood stagnate!
“Endure, I must endure!”
Shentu Nantian said to himself in his heart.
His head was covered in sweat as he grit his teeth and clenched his fists. His fingernails stabbed into his palms, causing them to bleed.
Just watching the disk array itself might have been the Great Empress mystic realm’s test of a cultivator’s courage.
Shentu Nantian was aspiring to become a peerless Great Emperor. This aspiration needed the support of great courage.
The things that appeared out of a small disk array were just illusions and phantom images. So what?
Shentu Nantian roared while facing the sky. His Yuan Qi was circulated to an extreme as the blood vessels on his neck bulged. His eyes were also injured by the lance beam, and blood flooded out from the corner of his eyes!
However, when the lance pierced through the void and into the large roc’s body, Shentu Nantian could no longer withstand the immense pressure and spat out a mouthful of blood.
Shentu Nantian’s body was flung backward as he slammed heavily onto a wall.
He wiped the blood of the corner of his mouth as his face was pale as a sheet of paper.
In what was just about 30 seconds, it was as if he had experienced an intense battle. Not only had he been greatly drained, he had also suffered serious injuries.
However, he had not been able to see anything in the disk array’s images clearly.
Without being able to see anything clearly, it would be even more difficult to talk about gaining insight into it.
Shentu Nantian took a deep breath and retrieved a healing relic from his interspatial ring as he began to regulate his breathing.
If there was a will, there was a way. The path of martial arts was to open up a new path out of the void when one reached a dead end.
This process would be met with endless dangers, difficulties and restrictions. Only by hacking through thorns and thistles and charging ahead without fear would one succeed.
This required great perseverance, great fated luck as well as unparalleled talent. If not, with the billions of warriors in this world, why had there only been a handful of peerless Great Emperors since ancient times?
Shentu Nantian reminded himself of this as his mind began to calm down.
“I will climb to the peak of martial arts. What is this tiny bit of difficulty?”
After Shentu Nantian slightly recovered, he picked up the black disk array once again…
As the passage of time flowed, day after day, people from the various large factions were waiting outside the Great Empress mystic realm in the raging sea tide.
Those Elders who had entered the Great Empress mystic realm to search for treasures came back out tens of days ago.
They had thought that the Great Empress mystic realm’s trials would last from slightly more than ten days to a month, but two months had already passed. Yet, there was still no sign of this bunch of most outstanding elites.
This made the elders of several family clans worry.
“The Great Empress mystic realm’s second round is to test one’s cultivation speed. Who knows how long they will be cultivating…”
Matriarch Lin was unable to feel relaxed as she stared at the entrance to the Great Empress mystic realm.
Previously, when Lin Yu and company were eliminated, they mentioned the real content of the second trial when they came out. It was a test of cultivation.
When warriors cultivate, a year was considered short, and three to five years was also not considered to be long.
During this period, they had to wait here. If not, when the juniors came out, without mighty personnel receiving them, then they might be torn to pieces by the God Burial Abyss’s swirling.
The gigantic vortex was something even the Elders from the various large family clans did not find it easy to withstand.
Ten days or so was fine, but to last for two months with the continuous tearing force of the swirling, that would be a major test of their endurance and temper.
Some people even decided to set up an array on the seabed so as to supplement them in enduring the pressure.
There were some younger Elders who treated the wait in the God Burial Abyss as a form of cultivation. They used the vortex’s pressure as a way to temper their Yuan Qi.
However, slowly, even they could not endure this any further. This was because the God Burial Abyss’s vortex was becoming more terrifying. The vortex’s tearing force was increasing in strength!
In each large family clan, several Grand Elders joined forces to take turns to power the array so as to withstand the tremendous pressure.
Now, two and half months had passed. The end to the Great Empress mystic realm’s trials seemed far and distant. This worried many of the family clan’s Elders.
According to the trend, in another two or three months time, the God Burial Abyss’s tearing force would reach a level so strong that the Grand Elders from the various factions would not be able to withstand it.
It the juniors who were in the trials still did not come out by then, then they would have no choice but to leave the God Burial Abyss.
And when that happened, the juniors from the various factions would be sucked into the God Burial Abyss upon being sent out of the Great Empress mystic realm, resulting in them being smashed to pieces!
Those that were still within the Great Empress mystic realm were the top elites from every large faction. Once they were lost, it would be a heavy blow to all the factions present.
Now, some of the factions were beginning to regret this endeavor. If they knew about this earlier, they would not have brought their juniors to participate in this Great Empress mystic realm expedition.
Time passed as another few days went by. Every day, there were Elders from various factions looking anxiously at the Great Empress mystic realm entrance. They were waiting for the juniors from their factions to appear.
Now, they no longer wished for their juniors to have any outstanding performances. They only wished that they would be eliminated early.
In the Li Fire Sect camp, an outer sect Elder, who looked much younger, was standing by the Great Empress mystic realm’s entrance. He was waiting to receive Gongsun Hong. He was Gongsun Hong’s uncle. For his family to finally produce such a good seedling, it was not acceptable to have Gongsun Hong die in such a muddleheaded fashion.
As he was on tenterhooks, he inadvertently happened to glance at the huge black vortex in the God Burial Abyss. However, this glance made him feel like he was struck by a bolt of lightning. He was completely stunned!
What… What was going on?
Separated by layers, that young Elder saw an unforgettable scene!
The dark and distant God Burial Abyss was half buried in the bottom of the sea. A huge hemisphere was exposed. It was a black hole which was also the location of the black whirlpool.
However, at that moment, on that distant and black hemisphere with a diameters of tens of thousands of kilometers… a huge eye covered in a black vortex had silently appeared!
Or it could be said that the black vortex that was tens of thousands of kilometers wide had turned into an eye!
It was like the eye of a beast. The eye was amber in color with a spindle-shaped vertical pupil. At the moment he saw the eye, that young Elder’s heart stopped beating. It was as if his soul had frozen.
He completely lost the ability to think. An eye had filled the entire black vortex?
What… is that thing?
