The shattering of the formation had clearly alarmed the leader of the men in black who had been so focused on constructing the giant teleportation gate.
A loud cry rang out, and behind Wang Chong, the Sky Official angrily roared as he rushed into the hall.
His left hand snatched out, and the air in the hall shifted. In the blink of an eye, Wang Chong felt the air around him becoming as tough and solid as steel, fixing him within the hall.
“Ten Thousand Star Meteors!”
As Wang Chong was suppressed, the Sky Official punched with all his Stellar Energy.
There was a thunderous boom, and as the fist thrust forward, ten thousand points of light flashed into existence behind the Sky Official, and behind these myriad stars was an image of the universe.
The power of the stars, the power of the universe, and the majestic Stellar Energy within the Sky Official’s body merged together into a red, yellow, and white stream that surged toward Wang Chong.
It was a majestic and grandiose attack, and in terms of destructive and offensive might, it far surpassed any attack from the Earth Official.
Unlike the Earth Official, the Sky Official controlled the universe and the void. While the Earth Official could absorb energy from the surrounding earth, the Sky Official could absorb energy from spacetime itself, and this energy was far more powerful.
This was why he was ranked first amongst the three officials.
Formidable, as expected!
There was a glint of surprise in Wang Chong’s eyes upon seeing this attack.
He had hesitated in entering the golden palace precisely because he feared the Sky Official.
A peak Subtle realm expert who could absorb energy from the depths of spacetime was infinitesimally close to the basic Grotto Heaven realm.
And his powerful abilities were a perfect fit for the narrow confines of the palace and his spatial sealing ability. In normal circumstances, Wang Chong would have been a turtle in a jar with nowhere to run.
Wang Chong stomped on the ground, sundering the floor. At the same time, he gave the Sky Official an eerie smile. A moment later, the three-colored stream of energy slammed into where Wang Chong had been standing, but at this point, Wang Chong had already disappeared like a ghost.
If the Sky Official had sealed Wang Chong’s movements while he was in the air, he might have had a chance, but Wang Chong’s two feet had been planted on the floor of the hall this entire time. This was the ideal distance to use Earth Movement, and not even the Sky Official could stop him.
Moreover, after absorbing all of the Earth Official’s abilities, Wang Chong could use the Earth Movement art even better than the Earth Official.
Kaboom! The ground shuddered as the Sky Official’s immense attack made impact, the three-colored Stellar Energy running rampant through the palace and causing it to explode into debris, spreading shockwaves out in all directions.
The Sky Official, his attack having missed, scowled at the ruins of the palace.
The Sky Official had recognized the technique Wang Chong had used, and from the look of it, Wang Chong had an even stronger grasp of this Earth Element ability than the Earth Official.
The Sky Official’s face went ashen, and he finally understood why Wang Chong had tried to lure them out.
Without the restriction of the formation, Earth Element experts with the Earth Movement ability could travel through the entire region like a fish through water.
A terrible thought appeared in the Sky Official’s mind, and he hastily began to rush outside.
An explosion rang out in the darkness, followed by a miserable scream, but a few seconds later, the scream stopped.
It was the Water Official’s voice!
The Sky Official’s heart trembled, his face turning pale as his heart sank.
With a furious roar, the Sky Official accelerated.
The Sky Official spotted the area of the battle.
Countless corpses were spread across a wide area. There were the bodies of tribal warriors and bodies of men in black, and the signs of intense battle could be seen everywhere.
A red official’s hat drifted down from the air while the Water Official’s body came down much faster, crashing into the ground.
Two figures, one gold and one red, slowly landed on the ground.
The Sky Official’s eyes went red, and his body instantly began to surge with energy.
The air behind the Sky Official darkened, and then countless stars began to appear. As the stars appeared, the tri-colored streams of energy in red, yellow, and white shot at Divine Embryos 2 and 3.
Deep underground, Wang Chong’s Divine Embryo 1 opened its hand, upon which the surrounding several thousand feet of earth began to ripple like water.
After killing the Water Official, Divine Embryos 2 and 3 did not waste any time fighting the Sky Official, and vanished into the earth.
At the final moment, Divine Embryo 3 even reached out and took the Water Official’s corpse.
The Water Official had been the weakest of the three officials while the Sky Official was the strongest. Killing the Sky Official would not be as easy as killing the other two, but this was not the reason Wang Chong avoided battle.
“Scoundrel, where are you going?!”
As the divine embryos were about to vanish into the earth, a furious roar exploded in their ears.
It was barely audible at first, but in a flash, it had arrived with thunderous fury, shaking the foundations of the three divine embryos and even affecting the Earth Movement ability.
Wang Chong’s expression instantly turned solemn.
Killing the Water Official had finally provoked the Supreme that was guarding the teleportation gate.
Wang Chong still didn’t know how big the gap was between Genesis Supreme and Firmament Supreme when it came to actual power, but it was clear that Firmament Supreme was superior when it came to Psychic Energy.
At this level of cultivation, Psychic Energy became tangible and could act as a rather strong real attack.
Wang Chong grimaced, not daring to stay. He immediately exerted Divine Embryo 1’s abilities to their limit, an earthen light wrapping around Divine Embryo 2, Divine Embryo 3, and the body of the Water Official as they hastily fled.
In the organization of men in black, the Supremes were at the peak of the martial path. They had existed for longer than written history, and even in the past, only a scant few had ever been able to reach their level.
In truth, to mortal experts, they wielded unimaginable power and were truly already similar to gods!
If Firmament Supreme were allowed to catch up, the battle would flip around, and it would be Wang Chong’s three divine embryos suffering heavy losses.
Wang Chong did not dare to risk the three divine embryos until he had broken into the Grotto Heaven realm.
One powerful wave of Psychic Energy after another exploded around the three divine embryos. These were not pure mental attacks. They also contained some of the will and pressure of their user, and also something else.
Wang Chong’s actual body was still in the capital, and while the three divine embryos had hardy wills, they could not compare to his actual body. Firmament Supreme’s attack method struck precisely at Wang Chong’s greatest weakness.
Finally, after madly fleeing for ten-some li, they seemed to cross some invisible barrier and the mental attacks that had followed them like a shadow finally disappeared.
“This man is too frightening!”
Wang Chong’s divine embryos emerged from the ground. Free of that suffocating pressure, Wang Chong let out a sigh of relief.
The power of the three divine embryos Wang Chong had refined came from his soul. Although it could not compare to the power of his actual body, it was still at the Subtle realm.
Moreover, the three divine embryos possessed astonishing talent, and once they were refined, they developed an extremely strong connection with the person who refined them that was practically flawless.
Even in these circumstances, Firmament Supreme’s long-distance attacks had still almost managed to shatter Wang Chong’s soul. From this, one could see just how powerful Firmament Supreme was.
I’ll have to give the matter of the teleportation gate further thought! Wang Chong said to himself as he frowned.
With Firmament Supreme guarding the teleportation gate, destroying it would be no simple task.
“Damn thing! If this god didn’t have to maintain the formation and erect the teleportation gate, I would have obliterated your bodies!”
At the shores of the Caspian Sea stood a figure with long silver hair. His eyes suddenly opened, revealing an icy-cold killing intent.
As the Firmament Supreme stewed in his rage, a powerful pulse of energy came from the depths of spacetime. He grimaced, quickly gathered his energy, and began to pour power into the formation.
The teleportation gate was of utmost importance, and no mistakes were permitted. Even if all three officials were killed, nothing could be allowed to affect Heaven’s ‘Purification’ plan.
Compared to the chaotic situation at the Caspian Sea, Wang Chong’s group was much calmer.
“Master, you should have sensed it. Firmament Supreme is incredibly powerful, and it’s not something we can contend with,” the faceless man said, his tone wooden and flat.
“In this current situation, if we try to approach that region and enter his attack range, we’re no match for him, even if we all work together.”
The faceless man said no more. He had tried last time and failed, so Wang Chong was the only one who had a chance of destroying the teleportation gate. At most, he could only offer some support.
