Lord Xue Ying - Chapter 1329: Assist
Third Dao of Mirage and Illusory Realm Killing Technique. That was a technique that would cause even Grand Perfection God Emperors in the Lightning World to tense up.
At this current juncture, the moment the technique was executed.
Those vicious Chaotic Origin Lifeforms that killed their way over, felt a tremendous illusory realm pulling on their souls. Being Chaotic Origin Lifeforms, their souls were naturally much stronger than cultivators who had yet to reach the Chaotic Origin Level! But, they were the most ordinary Chaotic Origin Lifeforms. Instead, their willpower was inferior to these low-graded cultivators!
“Weng, weng, weng.”
At this moment, there were 61 Chaotic Origin Lifeforms in the region of Xue Ying’s domain. Eight fell instantaneously from the illusory realm.
These eight were the weakest of them all. All of them were approximately Middle Stage God Emperors! Their souls were comparatively the weakest, and their willpower the most lacking in the bunch of lifeforms. They could not withstand the Dao of Mirage and Illusory Realm killing technique at all––they were exterminated instantaneously!
But the other lifeforms had resisted the illusion!
Since those that could exert the strength of a Late Stage God Emperor could resist against the illusion, there was no need to talk about those with the strength of a Grand Perfection God Emperor.
‘The survival capability of Chaotic Origin Lifeforms are much stronger than the Natives of the Divine Realm. It is much stronger than even cultivators.’ Xue Ying sighed ruefully. He had known that killing an Innate Chaotic Origin Lifeform was an arduous task. In the Lightning World, any Innate Chaotic Origin Lifeforms with the combat strength of a ‘Grand Perfection God Emperor’ like Fire Phoenix God Emperor and Hidden Willow Valley Master would only be killed by the three Chaotic Origin Ancestral Gods.
Their foundation was too solid and robust.
Their fleshy bodies were innately strong and their souls outrageously powerful.
They were only lacking in their realm and willpower.
“This cultivator is very terrifying.”
“This soul technique…”
These translucent Chaotic Origin Lifeforms were currently conversing with one another.
Even though those with the strength of a Late Stage God Emperor could maintain consciousness, they had to divert 70% to 80% of their heart force to resist against it. Hence, their strength were greatly weakened, and their speed temporarily slowed.
“Sou! Sou! Sou!” As for those Chaotic Origin Lifeforms with the strength of a Grand Perfection God Emperor, they did not seem to slow down at all and were continuing their charge at Xue Ying.
Xue Ying casually kept the two Chaotic Origin Lifeform corpses that died along his path of travel. Seeing the other Chaotic Origin Lifeforms that were coming in his direction, Xue Ying then moved through an arc and tried his best to evade them. He fled in the direction of the distant Scarlet Cloud City.
On the walls of the Scarlet Cloud City.
There was constantly experts keeping guard as sentries. At the top of one of the city walls, there were currently two experts standing here. They were as unmoving as sculptures. They had been responsible for keeping guard of this direction for a very long time.
Almost instantaneously, they turned around slightly towards a particular direction.
Over there, an intense fluctuation had erupted!
“There is a battle!”
The two of them were startled and carefully examined what was happening.
Only to see many translucent violet-spotted Chaotic Origin Lifeforms currently pursuing after a white-robed young man. That white-robed young man was in a mad rush in their direction. At the same time, he was doing his best to resist against the joint attack by those Chaotic Origin Lifeforms.
“It’s a group of ‘Shadow Reapers’!”
“That man doesn’t seem to be from our Scarlet Cloud City. Is he a newcomer?” The two of them exchanged glances. They felt their hearts swelling.
Those new Ascendants would face the first trial in attempting to reach the assembly point. Clearly, this newcomer did not seem to be too fortunate for he encountered so many Chaotic Origin Lifeforms.
“Team One, hurry up and save him! There is a newcomer coming! Hurry!” The two experts responsible for guarding the place roared out to the others.
The five great assembly points were scattered in different regions of this world. They were all incredibly far from one another too.
Other than those who just ascended to this world where the Guiding Hall would send them to a location close to one of the assembly points, it was almost impossible for any cultivators to visit a different assembly point during other occasions! Because the distance was simply too far, and traveling through such a long distance to another city… was simply too challenging. Very few experts could do so.
Hence, the moment a stranger appeared, he would usually be a newcomer!
“Hurry up and save the newcomer!”
“Sou sou sou…”
A group of figures rushed out. Following that, a lump of enormous lightning wrapped around these figures.
That enormous lightning rushed over in the direction of Xue Ying using a frightening speed. In terms of flying speed, it was eight times much faster than Xue Ying’s current flying speed! Of course, this was due to Xue Ying’s current Middle Stage God Emperor Realm fleshy body. But a difference of eight times… even if Xue Ying reached the level of a Half-Chaotic Origin Lifeform, he would still be an entire level slower than that of this current lightning ball.
Xue Ying also saw that distant lightning ball tearing through the sky in his direction.
He was originally transported to a location not too far away from the Scarlet Cloud City. And it was only after he completed half the distance to the city did he encounter the assault by those Chaotic Origin Lifeforms. Nonetheless, there were simply too many enemies!
Even though Xue Ying was slightly thrilled from the assault, he still barely resisted against the attack by the Chaotic Origin Lifeforms.
These Chaotic Origin Lifeforms with the strength of a Grand Perfection God Emperor were still ultimately influenced by his Dao of Mirage and Illusory Realm. They were just left with half their original strength! Only then could Xue Ying dodge and evade their attacks. Only then could he delay for more time.
“Newcomer, hold on a little longer.” A voice sounded by his ears.
Suddenly, an enormous figure erupted from that lump of lightning. This transparent figure was like a bubble that rapidly engulfed the entire battlefield spanning half a million kilometers. This enormous transparent bubble dispersed and tunneled into the body of each and every Chaotic Origin Lifeform, causing those lifeforms to roar furiously! Even though their executed techniques remain relatively unchanged, they seemed to be much cruder than before. Those Chaotic Origin Lifeforms had become impatient and indignant.
“Sou sou sou…”
That lightning ball soon turned into eight figures that killed their way over.
One of them simply extended his right hand. As that right hand flew out, it split into many golden insects that rushed out against those Chaotic Origin Lifeforms.
“Just die for me!” There was a tall and muscular cultivator whose entire body seemed cast from rock, blasted out directly against those Chaotic Origin Lifeforms.
“Hu.” Another turned into mist. This dense mist immediately diffused into every single Chaotic Origin Lifeform.
Xue Ying was shocked when he saw this.
He could see that this group of experts held an absolute advantage. Only then did he gradually keep his Dao of Mirage and Illusory Realm and watch by the side. Even though there were only eight of them, they specialized in different fields. Some specialized in domain, some specialized in direct combat, and some specialized in certain cunning techniques. When these techniques coordinated with one another… those Chaotic Origin Lifeforms immediately started retreating. Some of the weaker Late Stage God Emperors even started dying in battle.
This group of Chaotic Origin Lifeforms left. After all, there were not too many of them the closer they were to the Scarlet Cloud City.
‘These eight experts are all Grand Perfection God Emperors. Furthermore, their coordination is stellar. When they work together, I doubt Cloud Phoenix City Master could hold off their onslaught for long.’ Xue Ying was inwardly surprised, ‘And it seems I am unable to discern quite a few of their cultivation types.’
For instance, that giant who seemed to be cast from rock.
His body was simply too strong. He could simply charge at those Chaotic Origin Lifeforms and cause them to fly away. He was so much stronger than Iron Dragon City Master and other experts Xue Ying encountered! Furthermore, Xue Ying could not sense any inkling of Chaotic Origin Bloodline from the other party.
The aura of a ‘Chaotic Origin Bloodline’ was incredibly obvious. During battle, Xue Ying could easily sense them the moment they were used.
‘Has he comprehended the Dao and refined his body to this degree?’ Xue Ying was filled with disbelief.
“Newcomer, come over.”
“Hurry up and go! Let’s not stay in the wilderness for too long.”
The eight of them looked at Xue Ying.
Their appearances were unique.
One of them was covered entirely in black robe with a scepter in his hand. Another was completely covered in scales and had an enormous tail. Each of them had a unique aura. And from the ripples of aura released from them… it made Xue Ying feel that they were experts cultivating a completely different system.
“Sou.” A lump of lightning simply engulfed all of them including Xue Ying, before heading back to the Scarlet Cloud City at high speed.
“It is slightly more dangerous outside the city so we should rush back into it when we could. Newcomer, it seems your luck is quite extraordinary. The very first trial you face… during your journey to this city yet you encountered close to a hundred Shadow Reapers?”
“If we were slightly slower, the Shadow Reapers might have gathered in greater numbers. That would mark your doom.”
These cultivators were laughing.
They were quite welcoming of any newcomer. After all, few were qualified to ascend to this world.
“Oh right, how do we call you? I am known as ‘Deity Eagle Snake’.” That male with an enormous tail said.
“Many thanks, fellow cultivators for saving me. You can call me Flying Snow. I have just arrived on this world.” Xue Ying transmitted back.
