Lord Xue Ying - Chapter 1342: Destination
On the battlefield, Xie Fan’s efficiency of killing the Chaotic Origin Lifeforms was the highest.
And as a result, it provoked quite a few Poison Demon Dragons.
“Pu pu pu…” More than 10 Grand Perfection God Emperor Poison Demon Dragons began attacking Xie Fan together. They would even occasionally shoot out the poison spikes on their bodies at Xie Fan.
Xie Fan felt it was not worth dodging. The domain produced by his extreme heavy body had reduced the speed of those poisonous spikes such that when they reached his body, they could not even pierce through it! He, Xie Fan, was also the right and left arm of the City Master ‘Weather Leaf’. And the reason was because he was the one that could resist most enemies in the team of Weather Leaf.
When these Grand Perfection God Emperor Chaotic Origin Lifeforms chose to group up on him? Xie Fan did not place them in his eyes. Given his body that was refined as a Dao Cultivator, these Poison Demon Dragons could not injure him at all!
Even though he was not injured, he was still impeded as a result.
“Die, die!” Xie Fan unhurriedly dealt against the enemies. At the same time, he was paying attention to the situation over at Xue Ying’s side.
‘What? That damned Hidden Horizon!’ Xie Fan’s expression changed.
Xue Ying was indeed in an awful situation.
With just a Late Stage God Emperor fleshy body, he was ranked at the back in the group of cultivators present at the battlefield.
Fighting against seven by himself? With three Grand Perfection God Emperor Poison Demon Dragons and four Late Stage God Emperor Poison Demon Dragons, more importantly, Xue Ying had to deal with the occasional poisonous spikes shot his way… this was the biggest threat from the Poison Demon Dragons. How would Xue Ying dare to take those spikes head on? He could only display his spear techniques and execute them in defenses against the incoming poisonous spikes while fighting back against the incoming Poison Demon Dragons.
If there were no poisonous spikes, he could still hold his ground against those Poison Demon Dragons.
But when so many poisonous spikes were coming his way, Xue Ying had to expend half his heart force in parrying against them. For a moment, Xue Ying was in a dire situation. All of a sudden, seven Poison Demon Dragons shot out their poisonous spikes at him, greatly shocking Xue Ying.
“Chi~” Suddenly, a black ribbon floated in the surroundings. It swept outwards explosively, flinging back all those incoming poisonous spikes.
‘So powerful!’ Xue Ying was both surprised and delighted. He understood his strength and could still sweep away the incoming poisonous spikes. But seeing the power of that ‘black-white ribbon’…
Indeed, Daoist Hidden Horizon relied on this domain technique to gain a status equivalent to that Xie Fan.
Xue Ying had a thrilling time dealing against those dragons.
There was the occasional claw from the Poison Demon Dragon that slashed through the layers of void defenses. In the end, it clashed against the body of Xue Ying, forming a black-colored flame that forced Xue Ying back and made him spurt out blood.
Daoist Hidden Horizon was clearly helping him only during the critical moments.
When the incoming strikes were not fatal, he would let Xue Ying get injured! He would only help out during the very important moments like when Xue Ying was in a dire situation previously and so many poisonous spikes were shooting his way. According to logic, with so many poisonous spikes entering his body… that would be more frightening than getting clawed by a few hundred times.
After all, what the cultivators of Scarlet Cloud City feared about the Poison Demon Dragons was their poisonous spikes.
The team of cultivators fought and escaped at the same time.
Their speed was relatively fast. In addition, as the Middle Stage and Late Stage God Emperor Poison Demon Dragons fell consecutively, the cultivators faced less and less obstruction. Eventually, the team of cultivators was able to fling away those Poison Demon Dragons behind.
‘We killed a total of 21 Middle Stage God Emperor Poison Demon Dragons and 80 Late Stage God Emperor Poison Demon Dragons.’ Xue Ying thought, ‘It’s a pity that we did not kill a single Grand Perfection God Emperor Poison Demon Dragon.’
In terms of value.
The Poison Demon Dragons they killed were incomparable to a single Grand Perfection God Emperor Poison Demon Dragon.
Because the size of a Grand Perfection God Emperor Chaotic Origin Lifeform was so big that the roast meat it could produce was equivalent to more than 10,000 times that of a Middle Stage God Emperor Chaotic Origin Lifeform! It was also worth about 200 to 300 times that of a Late Stage God Emperor Chaotic Origin Lifeform! Of course, Chaotic Origin Lifeforms from different tribes would have different values.
It was also hard for ‘Xie Fan’ to kill a Grand Perfection God Emperor Chaotic Origin Lifeform. It depended on what tribe it was. It had to be of a tribe with relatively weak survival capabilities, and only in the situation of ‘one versus one’ would he have sufficient time to kill!
In the case when a huge group of Grand Perfection God Emperor Chaotic Origin Lifeforms worked together, the moment one of them became heavily injured, it would simply retreat. Hence, killing any lifeform was hard in that situation.
This was also the reason why that ‘Flame Lineage’ Chaotic Origin Lifeform corpse that Xue Ying had could only be sold for six Grand Perfection God Emperor corpses and one million cubic meters of food despite it being unique in this Sacred World. Even so, it had incurred the greed in quite a few cultivators! Xie Fan wanted him dead. Firstly, it was for his reputation. Secondly, it was for the six Grand Perfection God Emperor Chaotic Origin Lifeform corpses.
“Brother Hidden Horizon, many thanks for your help.” After the team regained its stealth cover, Xue Ying transmitted a message over to Daoist Hidden Horizon.
Daoist Hidden Horizon looked at Xue Ying and transmitted over: “Brother Flying Snow, there is no need for you to thank me. I am only doing what I can to help you. If the situation is dire, I’ll definitely do my best to protect my group of good friends that have been following me.”
“I understand.” Xue Ying was clear.
Regardless of sentiment and responsibility, Daoist Hidden Horizon had to first protect his own team! As an outsider, it was rare for the other party to lend a helping hand to him.
As they flew…
In the blink of an eye, it had been a day since they left Scarlet Cloud City. Even though they encountered more dangers, the level of danger was not as high as when they encountered that group of Poison Demon Dragons.
From day to night, and night to dawn.
“Hu hu hu~” The great snow fluttered about in the air amidst the endless wilderness.
This team of cultivators were also flying in concealment.
“Fellow cultivators, according to the scouts, there are a few Mount Primal Chaos Serpents right ahead––a total of 32 of them with 15 Grand Perfection God Emperors.” Daoist Hidden Horizon transmitted, “This time, I created this hunting team with the goal of hunting down a Grand Perfection God Emperor Mount Primal Chaos Serpent. There are not too many Mount Primal Chaos Serpents ahead. Their threat to us is low. As long as we succeeded in killing one of them, we’ll immediately head back home!”
“Just 32 of them?”
“It seems we’ll have an easy time.”
“15 Grand Perfection God Emperors. And this time, we have close to 50 Grand Perfection God Emperors.”
Everyone present heaved a sigh of relief.
The Mount Primal Chaos Serpents had a slightly more precious bloodline among the Chaotic Origin Lifeforms. In terms of individuals, it was harder to deal with them than the Poison Demon Dragons. They were also the hardest to deal with and most terrifying enemies they would face in this journey.
But no matter what… there were not a lot of enemies!
Hence, the overall degree of danger was still slightly lower as compared to when they encountered the Poison Demon Dragons.
‘It feels weird that this journey is too smooth?’ Xie Fan frowned slightly. This time, they traveled for more than a day from Scarlet Cloud City. And the most dangerous enemies they encountered were actually the Poison Demon Dragons? There were also only 32 Mount Primal Chaos Serpents which they were able to encounter? If there were more than a hundred, that Xue Ying would definitely die. But now, Xie Fan was temporarily out of ideas.
He did not dare to directly deal with Xue Ying in the team because that would mean challenging against the underlying laws of the Scarlet Cloud City.
When they came out to hunt, they would normally encounter danger in all directions.
Yet he chose to kill his teammate?
From then on, who would dare to join his team?
The team rapidly came close to their target.
That group of Mount Primal Chaos Serpents had also sensed the incoming enemies. They immediately killed over indignantly.
“Mn?” The gray-robed man’s color changed slightly. He immediately transmitted, “Hidden Horizon, the other Mount Primal Chaos Serpents have also received the news and are rushing over in our direction. The closest group contains a total of 69 Mount Primal Chaos Serpents. We have to complete our task as soon as possible. Otherwise, there will only be more and more Mount Primal Chaos Serpents coming.”
Mount Primal Chaos Serpent had a relatively more precious bloodline and fewer number.
Even though it was not to the extent like the Ant Dragons where there were more than 100,000 tribal members, should the battle persist for an hour or more, the number of Mount Primal Chaos Serpents rushing their way might reach a number around 700 to 800! That would be sufficient to wipe their entire team out.
Furthermore, other than the Mount Primal Chaos Serpents, the other closer Chaotic Origin Lifeforms would also rush over.
“Maintain high alert and continue scouting the surroundings. The moment things are amiss, we’ll immediately flee.” Daoist Hidden Horizon transmitted to the gray-robed male and the cold golden-armored male.
“Yes.” The two who were responsible for scouting understood what was happening around them.
Finally, the team clashed with the Mount Primal Chaos Serpents.
The Mount Primal Chaos Serpent had a snakehead on each end of the body! It did not have a tail. Or perhaps, its snakehead was also its tail! Its meandering body was illusory and translucent. Only its two snakeheads seemed the most savage and vicious.
“Kill!” The team charged forward.
“Devour those cultivators.” This group of Mount Primal Chaos Serpents had a strange aura. They would occasionally appear and disappear in the void.
“Execute according to the original plan.” Daoist Hidden Horizon transmitted to his subordinates. Currently, the eyes of this gentle cultivator, Daoist Hidden Horizon, started getting filled with killing intent. This time, he had to acquire a Mount Primal Chaos Serpent at least!
