Chapter 984: Dao Tapir Seal
Upon hearing Yi Yun, everyone was secretly horrified. Yi Yun was that confident?
The Helltoothed Dao Tapir was a Fey beast reared by the Immortal Rain Sect. Many of the spectators had never even seen one.
To risk one’s life to face such a strange Fey beast despite having never encountered one before was something that no member of the young generation present had the courage to do so.
“Yi Yun, have you thought it through?” Felicitous Rain Lord asked Yi Yun.
Yi Yun said with clasped hands, “Yes, Divine Lord.”
Felicitous Rain Lord looked carefully at Yi Yun. He was astonished at Yi Yun’s extremely calm demeanor. However, Felicitous Rain Lord believed that for Yi Yun to be able to gradually reach his present state from a minor character who had no background, he definitely would not do something foolhardy that would end up killing him.
“In that case, alright!” Felicitous Rain Lord slowly stood up and said, “There are seals inside the Dao Tapir. As the seals are released one by one, the Dao Tapir will release a stronger devouring force.”
“When this force is afflicted on you, it will cause the Dao imprints and Dao runes in your bodies to collapse before sucking the Dao away.”
“The method to resist the devouring force is to let your Dao form a perfect system. When your Dao merges with your body as it slowly achieves perfection, your Dao Domain will become more powerful. Then the collapse would become more unlikely, causing the Dao Tapir to fail at sucking the Dao that you have comprehended away.” Felicitous Rain Lord explained patiently.
The explanation was mainly for Yi Yun and Chi Zhuiyun. By knowing how to resist the Dao Tapir’s devouring force, it would prevent them from being thrown into a panic at the beginning.
“The Dao Tapir I reared is named ‘Xiao’. I will release Xiao’s first seal so that you can slowly experience it.”
As Felicitous Rain Lord spoke, he conjured a rune that spread out like water ripples before it entered the Dao Tapir’s shadow.
The Dao Tapir jolted suddenly as a dangerous aura emanated from it.
Even though the Dao Tapir was reared by Felicitous Rain Lord, it possessed an aura with ice-cold killing intent.
Immediately, Chi Zhuiyun and Tianya Haoyue felt their hearts shudder.
They could sense a devouring force acting on their entire being. This feeling was one that they had never experienced before in their lives. It felt like all the blood in their bodies was being tugged like it wanted to burst out of their bodies.
Chi Zhuiyun wanted to activate his Dao Domain, but after carefully perceiving his situation for a moment, he realized that he could withstand it.
“The Dao Tapir’s aura is gradually becoming stronger, but it hasn’t exceeded the limits of what I can bear.”
Chi Zhuiyun discovered this point. He looked at Felicitous Rain Lord in the towering tree’s hall and immediately understood something.
Felicitous Rain Lord was only allowing them to adjust to the assessment. He had deliberately released the first seal of his Dao Tapir’s many seals. He wanted them to understand what it felt like when the Dao Tapir was devouring their Dao so that they would not be left in a panic.
Yi Yun had a similar thought. The devouring force was gradually increasing in intensity. He could release his perception to experience it and at the same time, observe Chi Zhuiyun’s reaction.
Getting some experience from Chi Zhuiyun’s resistance of the Dao Tapir would allow him to withstand the Dao Tapir with ease and verve.
“Grandmaster Uncle, let us begin as well.” Upon realizing what was happening, Shi Fei told Old Man Changsheng in an anxious manner.
Felicitous Rain Lord was letting Yi Yun familiarize himself with the Dao Tapir and it was obvious to Shi Ping and Shi Fei. Even though they refused to believe that Yi Yun was able to comprehend a powerful Dao Domain in the span of a short year, they absolutely refused to give Yi Yun any chance of improving his likelihood for success.
After all, to make Yi Yun face the extremely dangerous Helltoothed Dao Tapir, they had paid the cost of slapping each other in the face. They had done so publicly, with projection images shown to millions of people outside. They needed to absolutely ensure that Yi Yun would pay a heavier price than than they paid.
Shi Changsheng glanced at Yi Yun and sneered. ‘How can I give you the chance to gain experience with the Dao Tapir’s devouring force? You were given a chance to withdraw, but not only did you not withdraw, you even went further to ridicule my Immortal Rain Sect. Today, you shall pay a tragic price!’
“Helltoothed Dao Tapir, three seals, release!”
Shi Changsheng immediately released three seals!
Instantly, it was like all hell had broken loose. The crimson Helltoothed Dao Tapir bared its fangs and brandished its claws as it covered the entire sky!
Even the warriors outside Brocade Spring Court could see the Dao Tapir without needing to use the projection array.
A shudder ran through the spines of the warriors. They were not the targets of the Dao Tapir’s act of devouring, but they still felt their bodies turn cold.
As for Yi Yun, it was unknown if he could withstand the Helltoothed Dao Tapir.
“That old bastard is too vicious. He actually directly released three seals!”
“Those two Immortal Rain Sect disciples are familiar with Dao Tapirs. But Yi Yun did not even know what a Dao Tapir was before this. He is being a bully.”
Many warriors found the circumstances unfair to Yi Yun. By doing so, the Immortal Rain Sect was completely targeting Yi Yun and making things difficult for him.
There were others who were gloating at Yi Yun’s misfortune. Song Wuchen was overjoyed. “Yi Yun got the Immortal Rain Sect disciples to slap each other in the face and they have already done it. Now, it’s only fair for him to face the threat of the Helltoothed Dao Tapir. It was all his choice. He had eased his heart by shooting his mouth, but I wonder how he will now deal with the situation?”
Shi Ping and Shi Fei immediately released their Dao Domains when they faced the terrifying devouring power of the Helltoothed Dao Tapir.
They had faced the Helltoothed Dao Tapir several times in the past, so they were extremely familiar with it! In their Dao Domains, they stood like stable boulders! The Helltoothed Dao Tapir was constantly attempting to devour their Dao Domains, but their Dao Domains were unassailable as their two Dao Domains merged into one.
They looked at Yi Yun. In front of the Helltoothed Dao Tapir with three of its seals having been removed, how long could Yi Yun last?
Yi Yun could sense a horrifying suction force coming from the Helltoothed Dao Tapir that acted on him. It made Yi Yun feel like everything in his body was bursting out of it.
What the Dao Tapir targeted may be the Dao inside his body, but when the suction power landed on him, it felt like his soul would be sucked away as well.
Yi Yun felt that the world he was facing was filled up by the Helltoothed Dao Tapir, and he was standing in front of a gaping mouth.
The nomological fragments that he was not controlling would be sucked away!
Just a moment ago, Felicitous Rain Lord had said to form one’s Dao Domain into a system so that one could withstand the devouring force. Although it sounded simple, it was the same as comprehending a Dao Domain. It needed repeated attempts and a sequential progress.
But Yi Yun was immediately facing the Helltoothed Dao Tapir which had three of its seals released. He did not have any chance of slowly familiarizing himself with the situation. At the moment the Helltoothed Dao Tapir’s seals were removed, he was engulfed immediately.
Yi Yun had never shown his Dao Domain before. Some people even suspected that he had yet to comprehend a Dao Domain after a year.
While under the influence of the Helltoothed Dao Tapir’s devouring force, Yi Yun clenched his teeth. Slowly, an ice-cold aura that seemed to come from a deep abyss began emanating from his body.
The aura was very strange and it suffused a gray light. It did not appear obvious, but it managed to block the devouring power.
“What is that gray halo… ? Is that Yi Yun’s Dao Domain?”
“Dao Domain? That doesn’t… seem like one?”
