Chapter 928: Yi Yun in the Heavenly Slaughter Array
“Oh? Chi Zhuiyun wants to challenge Chu Yunjian!?”
In Crimson Firmament Palace, Bai Yueqing, Prince Crimson Firmament, and Chu Yunjian were drinking wine when they heard the news.
Chu Yunjian was Bai Yueqing’s subordinate, and in the White Fox clan, Chu Yunjian was regarded by Bai Yueqing as a first-class guest. This allowed Chu Yunjian to sit alone with a friend in a pavilion outside the emperor’s palace while waiting to be summoned by Emperor Luo.
In the beginning, Bai Yueqing believed that when the Oracle Fey Kingdom’s Chi Zhuiyun came to the Luo clan, he would finally challenge Luo Huo’er and Princess Xue’er, and of course, the best outcome was Luo Huo’er being defeated by Chi Zhuiyun before Xue’er turned the tide.
But they never expected that Chi Zhuiyun had not chosen to challenge Luo Huo’er, but he challenged Chu Yunjian instead.
“That Chi Zhuiyun is way too arrogant!”, said a sullen Bai Yueqing before he glanced at Chu Yunjian and added, “Yunjian broke through to the Dao Manifestation several years ago, condensing a sword Dao fruit and space-time Dao fruits. With the space-time Dao fruits having seven leaves, they were of excellent quality. Even if Chi Zhuiyun had condensed a Dao fruit, he was not necessarily superior to you, Yunjian, what more him having yet to reach the Dao Manifestation realm.”
As Bai Yueqing spoke, Chu Yunjian shook his head and said, “Your Highness, your humble servant knows his strength very well. That Chi Zhuiyun isn’t simple, but he is at half-step Dao Manifestation. Once he manifests his Dao, the Dao fruit that he manifests will definitely surpass me, but… that is after he manifests his Dao. Now, he has yet to manifest his Dao fruit, and he wants to leapfrog and challenge me… ”
Chu Yunjian gulped down the glass of wine in hand and he no longer spoke another word.
“Haha! Brother Yueqing, there’s no need to be angry. That Chi Zhuiyun may be arrogant, daring to declare that he alone will trample our Luo and White Fox clan. If he had limited it to the Heaven Ascension realm, that would have been fine, but to challenge Brother Yunjian in his first battle, that’s good. Brother Yunjian can take the edge off his spirit, letting him know the difference between the Dao Manifestation and the Heaven Ascension realm!”
Prince Crimson Firmament and Bai Yueqing were allies. Both of them supported each other in order to support their respective inheritance of the throne.
Now, with Chi Zhuiyun challenging Chu Yunjian, Prince Crimson Firmament would be very happy to see Chu Yunjian repress Chi Zhuiyun.
The news of Chi Zhuiyun battling Chu Yunjian had caused a great sensation in the Luo clan royal capital. Chi Zhuiyun and company had already been in the Luo clan royal capital for more than ten days. The royal capital was not given a breather in those days because there was a huge battle every other day!
A battle between the best amongst geniuses was an exciting event, what more it had the Luo clan and White Fox clan’s honor on the line.
The venue of Chu Yunjian and Chi Zhuiyun’s battle was decided to be on the southern desolate mountain plains in the western suburbs of the royal capital.
The southern desolate mountain plains were several million kilometers wide, and due to the sparse population, it was a venue where many warriors used to spar. On this day, at the brink of dawn, groups of warriors flew out of the royal capital and rushed to the southern desolate mountain plains. Soon, the expansive desolate plains were filled with hundreds of thousands of people.
“There’s so many people!”
“It hasn’t even begun. Once the battle begins, the number of people might even increase several-fold!”
While Chi Zhuiyun and Chu Yunjian’s battle was ongoing, Yi Yun had been in reclusive cultivation in the Heavenly Slaughter Array for more than ten days.
The Heavenly Slaughter Array was truly an eye-opening experience for Yi Yun. Compared to the battles against the Ancient Fey in the Fey Refining Rock array, fighting against warriors and the situations that he encountered were multifarious in nature. Especially with the warriors being Fey Phantasm Sect disciples captured by the Luo clan, they were perfectly restored through soul-refining methods, both in terms of their combat techniques and the laws they cultivated.
And the opponents that Yi Yun chose were from the younger generation of the Fey Phantasm Sect. There were also many low-class Fey Phantasm Sect disciples that were stuck in the Dao Manifestation for several years. Even if he chose disciples from the younger generation, they were not formidable geniuses of the Fey Phantasm Sect. True Fey Phantasm Sect geniuses would typically not be caught alive by the Luo clan.
As such, when Yi Yun chose his opponents, he would bias it to those who were at the mid-stages of the Dao Manifestation or even higher.
He was already at the Heaven Ascension perfection realm, and since his opponents were not geniuses, it was meaningless to battle cultivators below the Dao Manifestation realm.
With a flash of light, more than a dozen figures appeared in front of Yi Yun. These people exuded demonic auras. They were all Fey Phantasm Sect disciples, be it their aura or expressions, they were no different from when they were alive.
Yi Yun had experienced such battles for nearly a hundred times over the past couple of days. Under such intense battles, Yi Yun depended on the Purple Crystal to absorb Heaven Earth Yuan Qi to replenish his stamina, allowing Yi Yun to persist. Even Heaven Fey with top bloodlines were far inferior to Yi Yun’s Purple Crystal through the endurance that they gained from the power of their bloodline.
The figures charged at Yi Yun and the person who was leading the charge had a gigantic python coiled around him. The python stuck its black tongue out, while its amber pupils were filled with cold killing intent. Back when this Fey Phantasm Sect disciple was refined, the gigantic python had been refined into the Heavenly Slaughter Array along with him.
Without any change in expression, runic patterns flashed on Yi Yun’s sword. With a thrust of his sword, it moved like lightning and penetrated the python’s mouth, before piercing the back of its head, straight into its master’s throat!
Blood splattered as an instant kill was achieved!
A Fey Phantasm Sect disciple at the peak of the early stages of the Dao Manifestation realm was killed easily by Yi Yun like he was chopping vegetables. He did not have the opportunity to use the moves and laws that he had comprehended in life because Yi Yun’s sword was just too fast. Furthermore, the sword was augmented by the 10000 Demon Wheel of Existence’s Dao patterns!
Yi Yun could sustain for prolonged periods of time by using such a combat style, without summoning the entire 10000 Demon Wheel of Existence. He could battle until the end.
The Fey Phantasm Sect disciple that was penetrated by the sword convulsed as he collapsed onto the ground. The hatred and indignant look on his face were probably the same expression that he had when his soul was refined, and it was perfectly displayed once again.
Killing the enemy with one strike, Yi Yun had an indomitable stance. Circulating the ‘Great Empress Heart Sutra’, sword beams flew in every direction.
Cha! Cha! Cha!
The sword beams interwove in the space in the Heavenly Slaughter Array. Wherever they passed, the demons summoned by the Fey Phantasm Sect disciples, the corpse guardians and the puppets that they refined were all slain!
And at that moment, an opponent at the Dao Manifestation perfection realm appeared in front of Yi Yun.
At the Dao Manifestation perfection realm, he was an entire realm above Yi Yun.
The opponent was an elder who was as thin as bones. He looked like a starving ghost that had crawled out from hell.
Such warriors that were left trapped in the Dao Manifestation their entire lives had limited foundations and nomological insights. However, they could not be underestimated. Dao Manifestation realm warriors had extremely long lives and in their extended lifespans, they would research all sorts of strange battle techniques after knowing that there was no hope for them to make any further breakthroughs. Therefore, they were difficult opponents.
This was a pretty good opportunity for Yi Yun to test his strength.
The Fey Phantasm Sect elder disrobed himself, exposing his thin body. And his body was covered in black balls.
The black balls were embedded in the thin elder’s body. The surface had a black metallic luster. When Yi Yun focused on them, he realized that they were worms, sucking on the Fey Phantasm Sect elder’s blood.
Yi Yun frowned. This elder was using his blood to feed the worms. It was a repugnant scene.
