Lord Xue Ying - Chapter 963: Energy
The bald-headed hunk had already transformed back to his true appearance–a tall and sturdy golden-armored Destruction Devil with a pair of horns. He was frantically bombarding on the large crystalline black petals. Under his offense, the black petals were being destroyed, but only one layer was destroyed. By then, Xue Ying had condensed another layer over that. He was able to maintain seven layers of nine-petaled flowers almost all the time, bringing despair to the two golden-armored Destruction Devils. As for the black-robed girl, she had turned into a sweet and fair golden-armored Destruction Devil, yet as she struck the petals, she could not even move it at all.
Xue Ying was able to perceive that not far away from him, the air was being distorted.
‘They are here.’ Xue Ying thought.
“Not good.” That horned golden-armored Destruction Devil revealed a furious look when he saw that. He raised his head up before roaring. “Hong~” Closely following that, his body was utterly destroyed. And that seductive female golden-armored Destruction Devil by the side had similarly destroyed herself, albeit with slight unwillingness. Both their souls were completely exterminated.
Xue Ying’s expression changed after seeing this: ‘They actually suicided!’
With his current strength, even though he could trap the other party, it was still hard for Xue Ying to capture them. Who would have thought that the two golden-armored Destruction Devils would unhesitantly suicide after seeing some fluctuations from the ultra-long distance teleportation by the side?
A thin and small male walked out from within the distorted spatial passage. He might seem small, but his body was so strong that he could resist the assault by Sacred Master! Ancestor Sorcerer depended on many different techniques before he could barely match up to World Ancestor. World Ancestor and Ancestor Mother were two of the existences closest to Sacred Master in strength. Furthermore, World Ancestor’s style of combat was straightforward. He relied entirely on his physical body and even dared to devour the weapons of his enemies.
One could say that the Destruction Devils might seem savage and represented destruction, but compared to ‘World Ancestor’, he was so much fiercer and tyrannical compared to other ‘kings’ and was much stronger.
Fortunately, he was rational.
He stood on the side of the three great sacred worlds and took the Sacred Master as an enemy. He was similarly fighting against the Destruction Devils. Otherwise, the World Ancestor was practically a calamity to the cultivators.
“Suicided?” The thin and small World Ancestor who was garbed in loose green gown shook his head after seeing it, “These children are quite decisive in suiciding. Mn? Dong Bo Xue Ying, the dispelled energy from the death of Destruction Devils is quite nourishing right?”
Xue Ying was currently feeling waves of impact on his soul. At the moment when the two golden-armored Destruction Devils suicided, the dispelled unique energy was naturally absorbed by him. Saying it, Xue Ying felt quite ashamed. He had stayed in the Void Castle for so long and killed quite a few golden-armored Destruction Devils, yet the total energy he had absorbed then could not compare with this single absorption over here.
The unique energy was separated into two parts. One was considered quite pure, and the other had made his soul tremble in bursts. That feeling was too comfortable.
“Greetings World Ancestor. It’s a pity that the two of them have suicided, and I could not capture them alive.” Xue Ying held back the excitement of his soul. The reward this time was comparable to devouring 50,000 Origin World Rocks. That effect of absorbing the energy from that peak eighth level golden-armored Destruction Devil was estimated to be equivalent slightly more than ten thousand Origin World Rocks, with the remaining energy coming from the ninth level golden-armored Destruction Devil.
‘It’s a pity that they did not leave behind any materials.’ Xue Ying thought.
He had killed so many golden-armored Destruction Devils and had merely gotten two materials in total. One was left behind by a seventh level golden-armored Destruction Devil, and other by one at the eighth level. Their added valuation was slightly more than 10,000 Origin World Rocks.
“Capturing them alive isn’t that easy.” The thin and small World Ancestor chuckled.
Suddenly, the space by the side was once again distorted, forming a passage that a figure came out from. He was Ancestor Sorcerer. Ancestor Sorcerer nodded to World Ancestor before looking at his surroundings.
“You came late.” The thin and small World Ancestor said.
“I am slightly delayed. It seems that the two golden-armored Destruction Devils have suicided.” Ancestor Sorcerer merely glanced, and he was able to investigate through what had happened. After all, this wasn’t a battleground between experts of the ‘king’ level, and it was quite easy for him to examine. “Not bad, you are able to kill two at a single instance. It seems one of them is even at the ninth level, and the numbers of ninth level Destruction Devils are quite limited still–about a dozen at most.”
“Dong Bo Xue Ying, this nine-petaled flower is your new creation?” Ancestor Sorcerer turned to Xue Ying, praising him, “It is relatively interesting. With this technique, you are able to be ranked in top ten amongst Primal Chaos existences in terms of offense.”
“It is indeed my new creation.” Xue Ying replied.
He understood what Ancestor Sorcerer said, and it was true. After all, Xue Ying had personally seen Primal Chaos Hall Master, Monarch Xing Huo and other ninth level experts acting in the Void Castle. And those who still held an obvious upper hand against his offensive power currently could be counted with one’s fingers, and Primal Chaos Hall Master was one of them. Before creating the nine-petaled flower, his offensive power should only be equivalent to some of the peak eighth level Primal Chaos experts who specialized in the offense.
During this period that Xue Ying accompanied Ancestor Sorcerer and World Ancestor, the suicide of the two golden-armored Destruction Devils had incurred the shock of the higher-ups of Destruction Devils!
Before the two suicided, they had naturally provided information to the ‘kings’.
One had to know…
Any Destruction Devils who were chosen to be brought into the cultivator’s world, other than the two with the ‘shadowless talent’, the others were recognized to have quite a good heart temperament and potential. Nevertheless, they had lost two such seedlings in an instance, and one of them was even at the ninth level.
“This Dong Bo Xue Ying has become stronger. His newly created move is able to trap even the strongest golden-armored general.” These ‘kings’ were infuriated.
“I really wish to kill this Dong Bo Xue Ying.”
“It’s a pity that his movement is unpredictable, and he is traveling all across the world. It is hard to predict where he will be going next. Furthermore, even if we were to encounter him by chance, he has secret treasures protecting him and could escape using ultra-long distance teleportation. We can’t kill him at all.”
The kings were filled with killing intent towards Xue Ying.
One had to know…
That it was extremely difficult to search for traces of Destruction Devils.
Even Cosmos Gods had their own specialized Daos! For instance, Forefather Tian Yu specialized in ‘slaughter’, and Blade Emperor also specialized in frontal combat. As for Devil Mountain Primogenitor, he relied on his body to battle bluntly! These crude methods that the Cosmos Gods specialized in were useless in discerning those hidden Destruction Devils who concealed their auras, mimicking that of the cultivators.
They could slaughter countless cultivators, or suppress a vast region. Destruction Devils could similarly disguise and mimic these actions of the cultivators.
In order to search for traces of Destruction Devils, one had to have a technique that covered a considerable region that would not harm the weaker cultivators. This technique had to be able to differentiate the Destruction Devils from cultivators too!
‘Heart Imitation Religious Master’ was one who had such a technique.
And Xue Ying’s attainments in the illusory realm could achieve this too. The number of ninth level Primal Chaos existences who had similar techniques could be counted with one’s fingers, yet only Xue Ying was able to teleport through an ultra-long distance.
Most of the Cosmos Gods engaged in direct battle, and only two had such techniques. One was World Ancestor, but his time was too precious since many territories depended on him, and he was not so free to do a carpet-search for Destruction Devils. If Ancestor Sorcerer were to do this, then those Destruction Devils would hide even deeper. As for the other party, it was ‘Jade Light Master’, and her status was similarly high.
Thus, the existence of Xue Ying conducting his mission would likely cause the Destruction Devils to feel a ‘threat’, making them hide even deeper and be more careful.
And the reality was as such.
After those Destruction Devils who permeated into the world of cultivators suffered from losses the first time, the ‘kings’ sent down an order immediately.
All golden-armored Destruction Devils were to hide. They had to hide in some desolate land where there was nobody at all. They were permitted to act only when they ‘hunted for preys’, and they were to hide again after finishing their hunt. Those extremely desolate places, if Xue Ying were to do a carpet search through them, with how vast the primal chaos void was, there would be no end to when he could complete his search.
