Lord Xue Ying - Chapter 883: Chief Devil Cliff Commander
The experts of the Green Peng Sect thought that this horrifying Daoist Elder was in closed-door cultivation but in reality…
Xue Ying had already left for his hometown secretly from the Green Peng Sect.
‘With the three arrays I’ve constructed, the Green Peng Sect should be able to remain fine. If there are any issues, I can rush back instantaneously.’ Xue Ying nodded inwardly, ‘That time I promised to do three things. I’ve accepted ‘Yun Peng’ as a disciple, and he is safe now. I am protecting the Green Peng Sect too. These are very simple tasks and can be completed by spending some time. The only slightly troublesome task is the third one…!’
‘The two commanders of Chief Devil Cliff.’ Xue Ying pondered.
Chief Devil Cliff.
That was a sect that did not have a weaker reputation than the Golden Eclipse Nation within Myriad Ancient Sacred World. The two commanders of Chief Devil Cliff were recorded explicitly in the intelligence reports of Great Void Heaven Temple–they were at the fifth level Star Pagoda strength.
Such strength meant the territory they usually cultivated at would be protected by many techniques; these places would be able to withstand against attacks from a Primal Chaos realm giant since they did not fear experts at the fifth level Star Pagoda strength when they worked together. This base was meant more for defending against experts and to survive and escape. Even though Xue Ying might be confident of himself, he was not certain that he could get rid of the two fifth level Star Pagoda experts when they were located in their territory. Xue Ying would only trap himself in the arrays constructed within the other party’s base, and even if the other party could not kill him, they could easily escape!
It would then be harder to find another opportunity to assassinate them after the first failure.
His arrays that were constructed in Green Peng Sect were quite strong already. For the sake of survival, the two commanders of Chief Devil Cliff would have invited Primal Chaos realm giants over to construct arrays to protect their base. But with the treasures they had, they should only be able to afford a set of static arrays that was of a lower standard.
‘Dynamic Arrays’ would be much more expensive than static arrays, and the difficulty of refining them was much higher.
Static arrays that could resist against sixth level Star Pagoda experts would usually cost around 300 Origin World Rocks, but arrays that could be brought around dynamically would likely cost 3,000 Origin World Rocks!
‘The transaction that time requires me to kill the two commanders of Chief Devil Cliff within a time period of 100 billion years. I have sufficient time. Only a fool would force his way into the base of the other party.’ Xue Ying already had made his plans.
Like previously when he met the opponent ‘Undying City Master’ within the Monarch Nine Cloud’s treasure cove.
It was fortunate that they met in the treasure cove, and Undying City Master could not escape. Otherwise, the other party could depend on his body division technique and directly tear through the void to flee in different directions… Xue Ying could only pursue after the enemy in a single direction without being able to kill him.
The current Xue Ying had reached the ‘My Heart as the World’ realm. He was stronger by an entire level as compared to when he was at the Monarch Nine Cloud treasure cove. Even if it were a desolate and vast space, he was confident of killing the two commanders from Chief Devil Cliff despite fighting against two by himself!
Xue Ying had set an alert via the ‘Seven Star Oceanic Pavilion’–when the two commanders of Chief Devil Cliff leave their base, they are to inform him.
Xue Ying was confident of killing the commanders if the other party did not have the terrain advantage of their base.
‘Hmph, the laws and profound mysteries expert will usually enter closed-door cultivation for more than 10 billion years every single time. As for hex cultivators, they would enter for an even longer period of up to 100 billion years when they enter closed-door cultivation for research… but the two commanders of Chief Devil Cliff love devouring and killing others. They do not have the patience to stay in a spot for too long.’ After Xue Ying understood the relevant intelligence, he knew that it was likely that the two commanders of Chief Devil Cliff would not stay in their base for too long before going out to devour and kill others.
Time passed year by year.
The wind blew, and the flowers fell. The ground was filled with beautiful purple and brilliant red petals.
Xue Ying sat by the side of the tree. He was looking at a piece of petal as it floated down onto his legs. He could not help but look at the palace hall afar. That was where his wife entered closed-door cultivation. It had been a total of over seven million years yet his wife had yet to transcend.
‘Transcending either happens instantaneously, or the cultivator would get stuck for a long time.’
‘But my wife has consumed the Scarlet Cloud Pomegranate Core and should be in the best state of cultivation. It is even more optimal than sudden enlightenment. Why would she not have broken through after such a long time?’ Xue Ying thought. He then casually gulped down another cup of wine. The restlessness in his heart once again regained its usual calm. With his cultivation heart… few things could make his inner heart restless.
But anything concerning the transcend of his wife would always make him emotionally chaotic.
“Elder Dong Bo, the two commanders of Chief Devil Cliff have set off. We are 90% sure that their destination should be the ‘Resistance Wind City’.” A report from the Seven Star Oceanic Pavilion transmitted over.
The eyes of Xue Ying brightened. Even though prices of acquiring intelligence from Seven Star Oceanic Pavilion were high, their efficiency was excellent.
Xue Ying took a step before arriving right where the distant starry sky was. With a distortion of the starry sky, he disappeared.
Myriad Ancient Sacred World, Resistance Wind City.
The Resistance Wind City was a slightly more peaceful city. Even though the Resistance Wind City Master was just at the fourth level Star Pagoda strength, he was well-known for his ability to survive, and had called himself ‘Resistance Wind’. The moment his body turned into wind… even fifth level Star Pagoda experts could not injure him at all.
Because he was quite hard to deal with, few came to offend the Resistance Wind City he created.
Within one of the courtyards located in the Resistance Wind City, Xue Ying was seated on a praying mat there with his eyes closed. He was comprehending.
‘They are finally here.’ Xue Ying suddenly opened his eyes and looked up into the sky, ‘I’ve been in the Resistance Wind City waiting for 30,000 years.’
The other party was relatively quick with their speed of travel.
Because the second commander from Chief Devil Cliff could tear through a spatial passage to travel.
Very soon, a spatial vortex appeared, and two figures flew out from within.
One was in full black armor with a muscular body. The surface of his armor was rolling in a wicked black aura. His blood-colored eyes were staring below, causing an unseen pressure to form. Many cultivators directly dissolved from this aura, and even houses had disintegrated into powder.
Within a region of 500 kilometers beneath the black-armored figure, everything turned into nothingness. Outside this region, many beings had died too. He was the great commander of Chief Devil Cliff called ‘Black Chief Devil’. He was also the creator of Chief Devil Cliff. Other than his own infamy, 80% of the infamous reputation Chief Devil Cliff had was because of him.
The other was a figure who seemed unremarkable. He was the second commander ‘Monarch Qi Hu’. Monarch Qi hu’s figure was blurred as if he was a shadow within the world.
“Black Chief Devil, Monarch Qi Hu!”
At that point, ten figures flew out one after another from the City Master Mansion within Resistance Wind City. The one leading was a handsome violet-robed young man. He was Resistance Wind City Master. Currently, there was anger on his face which could not be concealed, “You started killing in my city? Why, are you planning to enter a war with me?”
He might be weak, but his survival capabilities and escaping techniques were formidable. He was not someone to offend easily!
“Hmph hmph hmph… ” Accompanying the sharp pitch of Monarch Qi Hu, “Resistance Wind, if it were during the regular occasions, my big brother and I would be too lazy to come over to your place. You are just a little ghost who would escape if you can’t win. And then you might even take revenge in madness. But now? Hmph hmph, my big brother and I are very patient to play with you. We give you two options now, one, hand over the ‘Stone Mirror’. Two, we kill you to get the Stone Mirror.”
Resistance Wind City Master’s expression had a slight change. He replied, “What Stone Mirror? Who did you all hear from? I do not know what this Stone Mirror is.”
He might be speaking on his mouth, in the dark, he had long activated the great array around the entire Resistance Wind City.
Dazzling golden light rays started rushing into the sky from various places.
‘Devils from the Chief Devil Cliff have come. Everyone, escape.” The voice of Resistance Wind City Master sounded in every part of the city. But he had rapidly escaped soundlessly in the next moment like a wind. He did not hold any thoughts of miracles since the other party had even mentioned the words ‘Stone Mirror’, and they clearly knew he had this treasure.
This treasure was crucial to his ancient cultivation. How could he be willing to give it away?
As for the city, it was not worth one-ten-thousandth or the ‘Stone Mirror’ in his heart.
