Chapter 1520: Heretical God Force
The horrifying explosion spread from inside the Chaos Gem mineral vein to the outside world. The entire Chaos Gem hill began quaking violently as a result of the explosion!
If Yi Yun had only conjured the usual 10000 Demon Wheel of Existence, it would never have had such strength, but Yi Yun used his blood essence and nebulous Primordial Chaos to draw a perfect 10000 Demon Wheel of Existence deep inside the vein. In addition, the wheel had absorbed the potent energy that seeped out from this mineral vein. It was akin to throwing a fire spark into a bucket of gasoline. Such an explosion far exceeded Yi Yun’s strength by a few dozen times.
Amid this terrifying explosion, the black spear in the stone chamber let out a clear cry that sounded like a dragon’s roar!
A black ripple emanated out of the spear like a wave. The sealing array formation left behind by the Dao Originator Celestial Thearch in the Chaos Gem mineral vein was stirred as well. The array that had laid in slumber for hundreds of millions of years seemed to have awakened!
Outside the Chaos Gem hill, Sacred Horizon Divine Lord and company, who were waiting for some sort of progress, naturally felt the terrifying tremor. Their hearts jolted as they focused their eyes in the direction of its origin. They saw rubble rolling down the hilly range in the barrier not far from them. It was as though a huge earthquake was happening!
“What’s the matter!?”
Sacred Horizon Divine Lord and company were perplexed. Fire Cloud Divine Lord and Primordial Chaos Daolord had just entered, only for such unforeseen circumstances to happen. It was unknown if it was a sign of danger, or the phenomena of a treasure’s appearance.
“Something astounding must have happened inside the mineral vein. What do we do now?” asked the female Divine Lord. Her beautiful eyes were filled with a look of shock.
“The barrier still prevents our entry. All we can do is wait. I believe with the vow of a mental demon, Primordial Chaos and Fire Cloud would not risk giving into greed and damaging their Dao hearts. Our search for opportunities is ultimately meant to lead us to a breakthrough to become a Godly Monarch. Even with a perfect Dao heart, it is still extremely difficult to find the path that takes one to the Godly Monarch realm. If one’s Dao heart is damaged, it will only become more impossible.”
Although Sacred Horizon Divine Lord said this, he felt uneasy deep down. It was not pragmatic to seek out more Chaos Gems to make two more sets of Chaos Gem armor at this moment in time; therefore, they could only take a wait-and-see approach.
The tremors from the explosion lasted for fifteen minutes before finally calming down. Even while inside the Ascending Dragon Cauldron, Yi Yun acutely felt the terror of the blast. Even the internal world of the Ascending Dragon Cauldron was quaking as a result of the explosion!
Yi Yun only dared to use such a strategy because of his possession of the Ascending Dragon Cauldron. If not for that, he would have died along with Primordial Chaos Daolord and Fire Cloud Divine Lord.
“Yi Yun, you truly are fated with the Dao Originator Celestial Thearch… While in here, I saw you use the black flame to overwhelm the Rainbow Plume Fire. The black flame you used was also left behind by the Dao Originator Celestial Thearch years ago…”
“Oh? Is that so!?”
Yi Yun was slightly taken aback when he heard that. So that was it. It was no wonder it was written in the divine alchemist’s notes that the Heretical God Fire Seed was able to devour even the Empyrean Cleansing Flame which was ranked one of the best flames in the 12 Empyrean Heavens.
“Years ago, I was lucky to acquaint myself with the Dao Originator Celestial Thearch. I gained some understanding of his cultivation techniques. Back when he was still developing his strength in the 33 Skies, he obtained a cultivation technique known as the Heretical God Force when he embarked on his martial journey. Once he activated it, it could greatly enhance his strength. Through it, a Heretical God Seed was born within the Dao Originator Celestial Thearch’s body. And this Heretical God Seed was the amalgamation of the forces of thunder and fire!”
“Thunder and fire were laws that the Dao Originator Celestial Thearch was extremely adept in back then. And the Heretical God Force was also the cultivation technique that he used the longest, from the beginning of his martial career until he reached the pinnacle of the Martial Dao…”
“Back when the Dao Originator Celestial Thearch left the Sinkhole universe, he left behind a wisp of the Heretical God Seed’s fire essence. I never expected you to obtain it. It is truly fated.”
“So that’s how it is…” Yi Yun was enlightened. Even the name Heretical God Fire Seed had been preserved. It was obvious the fire seed had later been acquired by the divine alchemist. He then used it to refine the Elixir of Resurrection and Elixir of Immortality, but ultimately failed. It eventually came into Yi Yun’s possession.
The Heretical God Fire Seed was indeed too powerful, so powerful that it exceeded all sorts of renowned fire seeds, fire spirits that took hundreds of millions of years to come into being. It had also saved his life when he faced Myriad God Patriarch back then.
“I really have to thank Senior Dao Originator Celestial Thearch. If not for the heritage he left behind, I would never have reached where I am today.”
Godly Monarch River of Forgetfulness said, “There’s no need for you to take it badly. Just like you, the heritage the Dao Originator Celestial Thearch received years ago was left behind by mighty figures from the universe he came from. It was because of those heritages and opportunities that the Dao Originator Celestial Thearch was able to cultivate to his present realm. Therefore, there’s no need to feel indebted. Just continue forging your martial path. All you need to do is to fortify the seal the Dao Originator Celestial Thearch left behind one day in the future.”
“Senior, I understand. The explosive blast has dissipated. I shall go out first.”
“Be careful.” Godly Monarch River of Forgetfulness sighed. “To save this bag of old bones, you had to risk your life and stop your cultivation before you fully broke through…”
“Senior, don’t say that. I’m indebted to you for your guidance. I naturally will not allow you to die while protecting me.”
Yi Yun cupped his hands and transformed into a stream of light that shot out of the Ascending Dragon Cauldron.
The stone chamber was not destroyed despite being at the center of the explosion. This left Yi Yun astonished. He had triggered the explosion of the 10000 Demon Wheel of Existence in the stone chamber as a desperate attempt. He had tried his best to blow away the items which the Dao Originator Celestial Thearch left behind so that the other two couldn’t have them. He did not pin his hopes on preserving the stone chamber, but he was surprised to see that the stone chamber was still pretty much undamaged.
He surveyed his surroundings as his eyes eventually landed on the black spear left behind by the Dao Originator Celestial Thearch.
It stood there silently, a hum vaguely sounding from within. Yet, it was enough to stir Yi Yun’s lifeblood.
“The massive array the Dao Originator Celestial Thearch left behind in his Chaos Gem mineral vein must have protected this area…” Yi Yun had a guess. If not for that, such a terrifying explosion would have destroyed the stone chamber even if the Chaos Gem mineral vein escaped unscathed.
Yi Yun had no choice but to trigger the massive explosion. If he relied on nothing but his own strength, it would have been completely impossible for him to kill two Sinkhole powerhouses at the same time.
Yi Yun walked out the stone chamber and finally saw Primordial Chaos Daolord and Fire Cloud Divine Lord through the mineral vein’s passageway. Fire Cloud Divine Lord could not be any more dead. Pieces of his body were scattered about, his blood everywhere.
As for Primordial Chaos Daolord, he was surprisingly alive but on his last breath.
This left Yi Yun perplexed. The old bastard was able to survive the explosion of a perfected 10000 Demon Wheel of Existence. Not just that, Yi Yun had ignited the explosion with them right in the middle of the 10000 Demon Wheel of Existence.
Yi Yun saw some artifact fragments beside Primordial Chaos Daolord, as well as some talisman paper that had been burnt to ashes. He had likely used some life-preservation artifacts and talisman charms at the final instant of the explosion to survive.
Upon seeing this scene, Yi Yun was astounded. A hegemon of the Sinkhole truly had a deep heritage. They had many tricks up their sleeves. If not for the perfected 10000 Demon Wheel of Existence he mastered, the corpse lying here would be his.
But now, Primordial Chaos Daolord was in a truly wretched state. His organs were in shambles. More than half his dantian was destroyed. It was impossible for him to pose any threat to Yi Yun.
“Little bastard, you…”
Primordial Chaos Daolord opened his mouth as a mouthful of coagulated blood and organ bits spewed out. His arms were completely fractured and he could not prop up the upper half of his body. He was slumped onto the ground.
Yi Yun sneered. “Primordial Chaos Daolord, it looks like I wasn’t wrong. In the end, I will be the one taking care of your corpse. Back then, you got your subordinates to spend twelve years seeking my corpse in the Fey God Tomb. Naturally, it was for my treasures. Unfortunately, my treasures are still mine. As for your treasures, they are also mine. Just think of it as a little fee for taking care of your corpse.”
As Yi Yun spoke, the Mirage Snow in his hand sliced out, severing Primordial Chaos Daolord’s finger. The interspatial ring on that finger easily landed in Yi Yun’s hand.
“What a good ring. Although it’s said that due to rings being small, they suffer less of an impact during an explosion. Still, for it to be perfectly intact, it implies what a top-notch treasure this is. I’ll accept it. With you reigning supreme in the Great Cosmic State for so many years, you must have some pretty good stuff in here.”
Yi Yun sank his psyche into the interspatial ring and violently wiped the mental imprint away. With Primordial Chaos Daolord heavily injured, his mental strength was naturally incomparable to Yi Yun’s.
Primordial Chaos Daolord’s expression was pale as his body convulsed in anger. He never expected that he, a high and mighty hegemon, would one day die at the hands of a junior who had not even cultivated for a thousand years.
He hated his current circumstances!
“Time to send you on your way!”
Yi Yun sliced out as a cold beam slashed out from Mirage Snow. It bore right through Primordial Chaos Daolord’s throat!
He widened his eyes and stared intently at Yi Yun before finally taking his last breath. A powerhouse of the Sinkhole had perished!
Now that Primordial Chaos Daolord was confirmed dead, Yi Yun exhaled. He had barely won this battle.
The outcome of the battle saw his right hand disabled. He had little Yuan Qi left in him. His left hand was also severely injured. If his final attack had not been effective, he would have been finished.
After killing Primordial Chaos Daolord and Fire Cloud Divine Lord, he finally had sufficient time to recuperate. Furthermore, he had received tremendous spoils of war from killing the two.
Yi Yun saw that Fire Cloud Divine Lord’s interspatial ring had been preserved as well. Although it was not entirely intact like Primordial Chaos Daolord’s, he would have no problems retrieving the items inside.
“Oh? This is…”
Yi Yun saw that among Fire Cloud Divine Lord’s mutilated corpse, two seals emitted a faint light. One was blue and the other was red. The two seals resembled two tiny phoenixes that were flying around each other.
Divine Lord Royal Seals!
These were the Phoenix Royal Seals that Fire Cloud Divine Lord had fused with when he became a Royal Sealed Divine Lord. As a powerhouse of the Sinkhole, the value of these two Royal Seals was obvious. Even Fire Cloud Divine Lord himself had said that he had cultivated his fire and ice-elemental laws to the extreme as a result of this pair of Phoenix Royal Seals. Just one of these two would have warriors killing each other for the chance to own it!
