Chapter 1152: Terrifying Blood Droplets

Qin Wentian inclined his head. The cultivation base of this great roc was the same as him, and he knew this wasn’t a real existence. His consciousness had entered into an illusory space when he stared at that statue.
He had never fought such a difficult battle with an opponent on the same level as him before. The great roc before him was a true saint beast and had a perfect and extremely pure bloodline. With the innate talent of a golden-winged great roc, every breath it took created a startling pressure that bore down on Qin Wentian, and its eyes were so sharp that they seemed to be able to penetrate the hearts of others. There was no need to doubt how tyrannical the roc’s attacks would be.
Qin Wentian’s gaze grew solemn as he released his perfect saint-grade immortal foundation, causing a brilliant flash of light that enveloped this entire space.
The wings of the golden-winged roc flapped gently, yet it gave Qin Wentian the feeling that this wasn’t just a pair of wings but was the sharpest immortal weapon ever created.
“Chi~” The phantom of the great roc manifested, directly plummeting, lunging towards Qin Wentian.
“DESTROY!” Qin Wentian manifested his body of truth while he mumbled the words of truth, creating the ancient character for destruction. From his perfect saint-grade immortal foundation, the form of an ancient halberd of destruction also formed, infusing its energy into the word of truth. The ancient character for destruction then smashed into the great roc’s phantom as it exploded.
The golden wings flapped unceasingly, manifesting more phantoms of numerous great rocs that shook the entire skies. Qin Wentian’s immortal foundation shone with boundless might, his lips moved as words of truth were spoken. The most important words were the characters for suppression and destruction. These characters were powered by the attribute energies that came from his astral souls which originated from the seventh and eighth-layer respectively, greatly boosting their strength. In an instant, several characters manifested, each slamming into the shadow of a great roc, the impact generating enough energy that it felt as though the aftershock could destroy anything.
The original body of the great roc moved. With a flash, it disappeared from its original location and soared through the air before zooming towards Qin Wentian. Qin Wentian closed his eyes as he activated his third eye, staring past all lies and illusions, capturing existences in the void. He soon managed to sense the trajectory and with no hesitation, instantly blasted out with a greater demon innate technique he learned from the treasured cauldron.
A thunderous boom echoed out, that golden-winged great roc disappeared from sight before appearing in another location. Swift, it was so swift that Qin Wentian could only ‘sense’ its trajectory by using his eye of the truth.
Rumbling blasts shook the space as Qin Wentian continued unleashing attacks powered by the immortal energy from his saint-grade immortal foundation. Each and every strike contained enough might to destroy a world, slamming ceaselessly into the body of the great roc, blasting it back. However at this moment, the body of the great roc suddenly expanded as it drew in a deep breath ferociously. Both its wings started fanning rapidly, and a moment later, this entire space seemed to be enveloped by a supreme demonic might that wanted to cause it to collapse. The defense of Qin Wentian’s physique was fully tested under that destructive pressure. Even if this space was destroyed, his body would still be able to withstand it. Under the chaotic streams of energy, the terrifying golden talons of the roc suddenly shot towards him with such speed that it was impossible for him to evade.
“BOOM!” All of a sudden, this space was transformed. Qin Wentian’s body actually also turned into the form of a roc. His physique was extremely terrifying, flowing with layers of fiendgod-like light. His own talons also shot out, unleashing the terrifying roc-type techniques he learned from the treasured cauldron, wanting to tear everything asunder. Two powerful forces slammed together as both him and the great roc were jolted back. Their eyes all contained a similar loftiness as their battle intents towered up into the sky.
The two rocs continued their battle while the illusory space they were in, began trembling violently. Qin Wentian was a human that took on the form of a demon, his immortal foundation was perfect and he also cultivated an ultimate art and supreme greater demon innate techniques, with an incomparably supreme physique. However, this golden-winged great roc was like the sharpest immortal weapon ever created, it similarly had a perfect physique and had incomparable speed. The innate techniques he learned from the treasured cauldron were originally derived from a true pure-blooded golden-winged roc in the first place. They seemed evenly matched at first but he was slowly losing the advantage.
After a long time, Qin Wentian who was facing the statue finally opened his eyes. His aura fluctuated as he stared at the statue, feeling shock in his heart. After such a long period of combat, he eventually was still defeated as his will was dissipated. In that fight, Qin Wentian was in his most perfect battle state, fighting against the most perfect golden-winged great roc. Although he was unrivalled among cultivators on the same level, and although he could jump two levels to defeat White-eye of the White Tiger Race, he was still defeated in this battle.
This indicated that right now, his combat prowess was still somewhat lacking. If he faced off against a true supreme demonic beast who had an extremely pure bloodline inheritance, he would be defeated if they fought at the same level.
However, he wasn’t too disappointed. He knew he was fighting against a golden-winged great roc with the purest and most perfect of bloodlines. Being defeated simply meant that his combat prowess could still be improved upon.
Staring at his surroundings, the experts from the Sky Roc Race also attempted the same fight, but they all went into the illusory space with a heart filled with reverence. After all, this statue depicted the emperor of their race.
Many other powerful experts in the surroundings all had a dispirited look on their faces as though they suffered a great setback. If every demon statue here contained the battle intent of the purest most perfected bloodline of the demonic beast’s ancestors, this was undoubtedly a very good place to temper one’s combat prowess.
Qin Wentian walked towards another statue, this was a statue of a Zhenkong. He prepared to fight against the eight greater demons depicted in his treasured cauldron, wanting to use the fight against them to gain more comprehension on the eight greater demon innate techniques which were also recorded there. Just like his fight with the great roc, Qin Wentian could clearly feel that the power of his roc-type techniques learned from the treasured cauldron, were slowly improving as he grew more and more proficient.
Demonic Dragon, Great Roc, Xuanwu, Divine Elephant, Vermillion Bird, Kirin, Zhenkong and Hundun!
Eight greater demons, Qin Wentian discovered their statues and just like his first battle, these statues represented greater demons of the purest and most perfect bloodline, containing the full capacity of their innate talent. They were terrifying to the extreme and despite several clashes against them, Qin Wentian’s attempts ended in successive defeats.
After the combat, Qin Wentian cultivated with the insights he gained, slowly improving bit by bit.
Next, Qin Wentian fought with the other greater demons. Despite some not being completely pure-blooded saint beasts, the demon opponents were all still extremely powerful, toppling Qin Wentian’s beliefs. For example, even a mere ordinary demon beast like wolf demons or black hawks, when they possessed a pure-enough bloodline, their strength was so high that it was incredible. This also proved the point that when a demonic beast cultivates to the extreme, they would definitely be exceptionally terrifying.
Qin Wentian finally obtained some victories over the ordinary pure-blooded demonic beasts. Despite these ordinary demonic beasts having pure bloodlines, saint beasts are still saint beasts after all, they have an inherent advantage in terms of innate talent, it was far too tough for ordinary beasts to surpass them.
At this moment, Qin Wentian came to the last row of statues. Upon stepping past them, a river of blood could be seen with the shadows of numerous demons on it, terrifying to the extreme.
When they first entered this sacred land, there were already many greater demons attempting to step into this river of blood. They were all instantly swallowed whole, not even leaving a single bone remaining. This proved the words, which appeared in their minds after they entered this location, were true. In here, the students of the academy cannot slaughter each other, yet death here was very real. This blood demonic river was able to swallow all lives.
Within this river of blood, there were currently several silhouettes.
For example, a demonic lion, a fiery-eyed berserk ape, and all sorts of other tyrannical demonic beasts were here, currently struggling in this river of blood.
Qin Wentian saw a look of extreme pain on the face of the demonic lion, as though it was about to be devoured whole. A bloody glow enveloped them, the filaments of light slowly seeping into their bodies, causing many demonic beasts to let out screams of pure agony as they were forced to revert to their true forms. Their skin and muscles were slowly being nibbled away. Qin Wentian saw that within the river of blood, there was even a powerful greater demon that was reduced to nothing but bones before the tides of the river swallowed the bones completely.
“Hu…” Qin Wentian drew in a deep breath, there was fear in his heart. With such great danger, it also equates to extremely good fortune. Stepping out, he directly entered the river of blood. He could even endure the baptism of the Sacred Luminance back then and now, given how terrifying his fleshly body was, why would he fear the demon blood flowing in this river?
Instantly, Qin Wentian was totally submerged by the blood river and almost immediately, he felt as though his entire body was about to be torn apart. The light from the bloody glow enveloped him, permeating into his body, wanting to replace his entire blood, corroding his original bloodline away.
“Chi, chi…” Qin Wentian let out a low-sounding roar as an expression of extreme agony could be seen on his face. In this blood river, it seemed that all sorts of attribute energy was useless. Even his perfect body was easily being corroded. This bizarre blood river was slowly trying to erode every drop of his blood. Qin Wentian felt like the blood river was like the maw of a terrifying demon monster, wanting to swallow him completely.
Qin Wentian only felt as though doomsday was approaching. Would he really die here?
“ARGH!” A scream filled with pain rang out. Qin Wentian felt as though his body was out of his control. His consciousness was drifting, and he couldn’t feel the existence of his body. The blood river seemed to have transformed into a sea. What he could feel now is only that boundless blood sea, as well as the knowledge that there are also other greater demons wanting to devour him which were formed of the blood sea. This was a world of blood.
“Have I died?” Qin Wentian mused silently in his heart. But since he still had a consciousness, he naturally didn’t die. He also couldn’t die here but despite thinking like this, that terrifying surge of tearing pain still remained. These blood-colored greater demons continued devouring their way over, wanting to eradicate his will. However, Qin Wentian understood what he was supposed to do at this moment. That strand of his will mustn’t be extinguished.
This pain continued for a very very long time, to the point where Qin Wentian has already forgotten time. He gritted his teeth and endured the hellish pain. As long as his consciousness wasn’t extinguished, he wouldn’t die. Those other figures who were devoured clearly couldn’t protect that strand of will any longer.
It was unknown how long had passed. His strand of will seemed to magnify, he wanted to activate his eyes of truth to see past everything. At this instant, a strange feeling appeared in his mind, there was no blood sea at all, no blood-colored greater demons. There were only droplets of fresh blood falling down to there. Each and every droplet of blood contained a terrifying energy.
His consciousness gradually returned as a heart-ripping pain assailed his senses. Qin Wentian roared thunderously as the blood in his body thrummed. He discovered to his shock that right now within his body, there were two opposing sources of blood-energy colliding with each other. Something was attempting to eat away at his bloodlines but that in turn, seemed to have awakened a mysterious energy within his blood.
Within his body, his bloodlines seemed to have transformed into a sea of blood. The blood-colored greater demons within were trying to devour his bloodlines but at this moment, everything had fallen silent. In the center of the sea of blood, a ring of blood-colored glow could be seen. The eyes of the greater demons were all filled with trepidation, not daring to continue advancing.
“So, the true power of my bloodlines has never been truly awakened before!” Qin Wentian mumbled, marveling at how strong his bloodlines powers were after the shackles were removed. He felt right now that just a single drop of his blood was able to counter-devour this entire sea of blood!
