Chapter 911: Fox Blood Stained Clothes
After slaying the fourth Ancient Fey, there was a two minute rest period before the battle against the fifth Ancient Fey began. Although it was a short period of time, it was sufficient for Princess White Fox, who had a tremendously powerful bloodline, to recover a substantial amount of Yuan Qi.
Princess White Fox was about to challenge the fifth Ancient Fey!
In this regard, the White Fox disciples were excited! But at that moment, even they were not optimistic that Princess White Fox would be able to slay the fifth Ancient Fey.
She did not have an easy time killing the fourth Ancient Fey.
And since the fifth Ancient Fey was stronger than the fourth, for her to defeat the fifth one? Difficult!
Time passed as Princess White Fox began to meditate and regulate her breathing. And outside the array formation, the Luo clan disciples were watching the battle between Yi Yun and the Nine-tailed White Fox nervously.
In the Nine-tailed Domain, Yi Yun had no way to attack the Nine-tailed White Fox’s body itself. He could only passively defend, while seemingly attack the Nine-tailed Domain’s boundaries in vain.
The Thousand Snow flying sabers would launch a thousand attacks in a few seconds, but every single attack would be repelled by the domain boundaries.
“He still can’t crack it!”
“Junior Brother Yi’s Yuan Qi is dropping drastically!”
The battle projection of the Fey Refining Rock array gave everyone the feeling that they were there in person. It reflected the moves, the Ancient Fey’s aura and suppression, as well as the challenger’s Yuan Qi intensity.
Everyone could clearly sense that Yi Yun’s Yuan Qi was only about 80% of his full capacity.
Once his Yuan Qi intensity went below its optimal state, then be it attack or defense, it would be more taxing on him. As such, his Yuan Qi would deplete even faster, resulting in a vicious cycle. If this went on, defeat was a matter of time.
At that moment…
The crisp sound of metal shattering was heard as one of Yi Yun’s flying sabers exploded in the Nine-tailed Domain!
“His saber shattered?”
The Luo clan disciples stared at the projection. Although they did not understand the Thousand Snow flying sabers, they knew that Yi Yun was using a form of saber array. The number of flying sabers that formed the array were fixed. With one fewer saber, the saber array would no longer be perfect, resulting in a decrease of its strength!
In the Fey Refining Rock array, all the weapons were standard and lacking in quality. If a warrior injected Yuan Qi into them, it was possible to make it indestructible.
However, if insufficient Yuan Qi was injected while having to sustain high levels of impact, it was normal for the weapon to shatter!
Yi Yun was controlling 999 flying sabers, and with his Yuan Qi being divided into so many portions, in addition to his drop in stamina, this resulted in one flying saber exploding!
Just as people were having such thoughts, the sound of another flying saber shattering into two was heard!
Every flying saber that shattering resulted in Yi Yun’s offensive weakening.
“That punk finally can’t handle it. He really gave me a fright.” Bai Yueqing thought to himself before exhaling.
He was truly afraid that Yi Yun would be able to defeat the Nine-tailed White Fox. That would result in him catching up with Princess White Fox. After all, it was not certain that Princess Xue’er was able to slay the fifth Ancient Fey. When the time came, even if Princess White Fox’s battle outcome against the fifth Ancient Fey was much better than Yi Yun’s, it would look not much different if she failed to slay it.
Upon thinking about this, Bai Yueqing relaxed. He casually flapped his fan and said, “Yi Yun is not bad either. Unfortunately, he’s challenging the Nine-tailed White Fox. As the totem of our White Fox clan, even a wisp of its soul essence has strength beyond his imagination. How would he be able to deal with it?”
Bai Yueqing’s words made the Luo clan disciples frown, but they did not retort. After all, Yi Yun’s flying sabers were constantly being shattered in the domain. In the short time span, more than ten had shattered.
The Luo clan disciples’ hearts sank. As they looked at Princess White Fox again, two minutes was enough for her to restore a sizable amount of her Yuan Qi. She was about to begin challenging the fifth Fey dragon!
The gap was widening!
But even so, Yi Yun could be proud of himself. With his background and age, it was truly a miracle that he achieved so much up to this point.
In the Nine-tailed Domain, Yi Yun’s forehead was dripping with sweat as he panted. By using the 10000 Demon Wheel of Existence’s laws in actual combat, what limited his strength the most was his weak cultivation level.
Yi Yun’s Yuan Qi was insufficient to support the use of the 10000 Demon Wheel of Existence. Even if he were using the nomological fragments, his energy was quickly depleting!
“I need to maintain 70% of my stamina to reach the fifth stage at least. Only then will I have the slightest chance of winning. For now, I can only use 10% of my energy to crack this Nine-tailed Domain!”
Yi Yun powered the ‘Great Empress Heart Sutra’ to its maximum. The 10000 Demon Wheel of Existence was an offensive technique after all. What truly affected a warrior’s cultivation level and Yuan Qi reserves was one’s cultivation technique.
Once upon a time, the ‘Great Empress Heart Sutra’ was the top-level cultivation technique that Yi Yun possessed. It was a great boost for Yi Yun, but now, with the 10000 Demon Wheel of Existence, the ‘Great Empress Heart Sutra’ was insufficient. This resulted in the Yuan Qi reserves being Yi Yun’s weakness.
“More than twenty flying sabers have shattered. That punk is truly at his limits.” Elder Duanmu said with a sigh.
Despite already knowing Yi Yun’s performance was stunning, he subconsciously hoped that Yi Yun would create a greater miracle.
“There are many shattered, but don’t you find it odd? The punk seems to be deliberately conserving strength at this point in time?” At that moment, Elder Shi suddenly spoke.
Elder Duanmu was stunned as he looked at the projection. He realized that Yi Yun did not seem to be going all out as well. It was as though he had reservations…
“What is that punk doing? Doesn’t he know the urgency of the situation? Why isn’t he not using all of his strength? Even if he doesn’t crack the Nine-tailed Domain, by freely attacking, it would allow his results to look better.”
Elder Duanmu was left perplexed. Rewards were awarded through the clearance of the Fey Refining Rock array. The better the results were, the better the rewards were.
“Yi Yun is persisting in a difficult situation indeed. He has used every means possible, but I noticed that the flying sabers that shattered seem interesting. The twenty or so flying sabers that shattered seem to give me a special feeling when linked together… ”
“Oh?” Elder Duanmu pricked his eyebrows. “Senior Brother, what do you mean? Are you telling me that Yi Yun has found a way to crack the domain?”
Elder Shi dismissed it, “Unlikely. If it were me, even if I had the Heaven Ascension cultivation level, I would have a hundred means of cracking the Nine-tailed Domain. However, Yi Yun is not using any one of the hundred. I do not think he can find a method that exceeds my methods.”
“But since he hasn’t found a solution, Yi Yun is still attempting it. However, his attempts make me find it rather special. As to saying that there’s something profound about it, it’s unlikely!”
Elder Shi shook his head. He had lived for hundreds of thousands of years. His cultivation level was formidable and he was well-read. He could understand the profoundness of the laws and the moves of a junior, even if it was the first time he saw them.
He could not comprehend the profoundness in Yi Yun’s moves, which only meant that it probably lacked any.
Just as Elder Shi said this, a series of ‘Peng Peng Peng Peng Peng Peng’ noises was heard. Dozens of flying sabers shattered at that instant.
Adding the ones from before, a total of hundred flying sabers had been shattered!
No one noticed that after every flying saber shattered, the nomological fragments injected into the flying sabers had transformed into golden runes that affixed themselves to the Nine-tailed Domain’s boundary.
A hundred flying sabers had left behind a hundred golden runes.
When the runes were linked together, they seemed to form a giant wheel.
And at that moment, Yi Yun’s body suddenly flashed as he arrived at the center of this wheel!
He faced the spatial boundary with his back facing the Nine-tailed White Fox!
As he had flown to this point while disregarding everything, he was unable to block the Nine-tailed White Fox’s attack in time. A fox claw followed swiftly behind Yi Yun. Yi Yun was about to be torn to shreds!
“Junior Brother Yi!”
People screamed. It was like Yi Yun did not know that the Nine-tailed White Fox was attacking him!
Elder Duanmu and Elder Shi stirred as they circulated their Yuan Qi. They planned on saving Yi Yun in the nick of time.
But at that moment, Yi Yun ignored the Nine-tailed White Fox. With his sword in hand, he stabbed the core of the wheel!
The hundred runes exploded simultaneously! The entire spatial boundary of the Nine-tailed Domain began to crack like an eggshell through this intense blast.
As for the Nine-tailed White Fox, which was located in the middle of the Nine-tailed Domain, it had already merged with the domain. It was the domain, and the domain was it.
At the instant that the domain shattered, the Nine-tailed White Fox’s body shattered as well. It let out a horrifying scream as its body was torn apart, spraying blood everywhere!
The fatal claw was reduced to dust just as it was about to strike Yi Yun’s back.
With the sword in his hand, Yi Yun’s back faced the collapsing Nine-tailed White Fox. His body was soaked in the rain of fox blood. It was a bloody patch!
This sudden change in the scene exceeded everyone’s expectations!
Yi Yun was just about to fail, and he had even been hit by the fox’s claw, but in an instant, everything was reversed. Yi Yun’s sword had cracked the Nine-tailed Domain and the Nine-tailed White Fox was killed as a result!?
Elder Duanmu and Elder Shi stared at Yi Yun with an inexplicable look on their usually indifferent and cold faces, let alone the complete daze the Luo clan and White Fox disciples were in.
What the hell happened?
