Chapter 1032: Remaining Prepared, Increasing Powers
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
The Heavenly Fire God-Slaughtering Formation was a formation that Li Yuanfang formed after he opened the South Heavenly Gate of the Heluo Heavenly Gate Formation. Among the four elements of Earth, Water, Fire and Wind, it took the Fire form. It also had the most powerful destructive force and offensive strength.
Li Yuanfang’s Heluo Heavenly Gate Formation opened the four Heavenly Gates and erected four different formations. They were formed after he figured out the Four Appearances Heaven-Cleaving Script and referenced to other powerful formations.
Opening the East Heavenly Gate, forming the Light Dust Spell-Manifesting Formation and infusing Li Yuanfang’s comprehension of the Two Elements of Creation Formation.
Opening the West Heavenly Gate, forming the Black Nightmare Saint-Trapping Formation and infusing Li Yuanfang’s comprehension of the Nameless Ancient Formation.
The Heavenly Fire God-Slaughtering Formation formed from the opening of the South Heavenly Gate infused the comprehension of Li Yuanfang of the Heaven-Destroying Sword Formation.
After hearing Lin Feng enquire about his Heavenly Fire God-Slaughtering Formation, Li Yuanfang straightened his look, “It’s basically completed, but there are still some things to tweak.”
Because of this reason, Li Yuanfang did not use this formation this time at the Ancient Desolate Galaxy.
When there were mistakes in others’ formations, he could not help but point them out. For his own formations, it was the same. Unless he was in a life and death situation, he would not use an incomplete formation.
Lin Feng nodded his head and pointed his finger. After that, a streak of black gas revolved in void space, as if it was an invincible art of swordplay. At the same time, it felt like countless formation patterns that converted into a huge formation.
The brutality within it did not spread, but it still instilled fear.
Li Yuanfang stared at that black streak of gas in a daze and the spells in his hands changed continuously. Streaks and streaks of mana revolved around in space too, forming a subtle formation. It was different from the formation that Lin Feng created using his black gas, but they seemed to be connected too.
Lin Feng saw this and he nodded his head with a smile, “You learn fast.”
Li Yuanfang analyzed it for a while before he regained his awareness. He bowed towards Lin Feng, “I understood many things. The Heavenly God-Slaughtering Formation can be completed soon.”
Lin Feng clapped his hands and laughed, “Very well, in this way, the Heluo Heavenly Gate Formation is only left with one more formation now. This formation will rely on this Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation.”
Li Yuanfang revealed a smile on his face and nodded his head hard, “Yes, master. I will work hard.”
“The most fortunate thing that I encountered is to have all of you as my disciples.” Lin Feng laughed while gesturing for Li Yuanfang to retreat to cultivate. Li Yuanfang bowed before leaving.
After Li Yuanfang left, Lin Feng’s Thunder Dragon Avatar and Avatar of Ares came before him and sat facing one another.
A radiance flew out of the brow of the Avatar of Ares and floated in void space. It seemed real and illusory at the same time.
It seemed like a small speck of dust, but seemed like a huge and complicated formation too. This was Lin Feng’s Two Elements of Creation Formation.
Lin Feng looked at the Two Elements of Creation Formation and thought, “This Two Elements of Creation Formation of mine still has room to improve.”
With the most basic formation map as the basis of comparison, Lin Feng’s Two Elements of Creation Formation was the strongest in the entire Grand Celestial World.
Of course, the formation might not seem as powerful as it sounded at times. That’s because the formation followed Lin Feng most of the time. Regardless whether it was his actual body or avatar, it allowed Lin Feng to bring it everywhere he went.
This was also an advantage of the formation. The formation did not rely on geography. Although it tapped on the powers on its geographical location, it was not limited to that.
That was why many others cursed that the Celestial Sect of Wonders was a cheat, as Lin Feng could bring the formation wherever he wanted.
Although this was related to the core foundation of the Celestial Sect of Wonders and Mount Yujing, the Two Elements of Creation Formation did not spend a lot of time in protecting the mountain of the sect.
This actually reflected a huge problem.
Right now, the Celestial Sect of Wonders was the hardest to overcome in the entire Divine Lands, but only if Lin Feng held the fort on Mount Yujing.
On one hand, Lin Feng’s powers were extremely strong. On another hand, Mount Yujing was able to hide in void space.
This made the Two Elements of Creation Formation play an accessory role.
During the Anti-Celestial Sect War, Lin Feng was not on the mountain and Mount Yujing revealed itself. Although the formation was there to protect it, it still required the help of Xiao Yan and the others to resist the enemies.
Everything in the world had its advantages and disadvantages, strengths and weaknesses. The Two Elements of Creation Formation was not limited by geography and could shift freely. This was its strength. But this formation had a huge weakness, that was it needed someone to command it. Furthermore, the powers of the person commanding it had to be aligned with the powers of the formation.
Li Yuanfang received help from Zhu Yi’s Soaring Dragon Spell during the Anti-Celestial Sect War, but was still only in the void Nascent Soul Stage. He was not even truly in the Nascent Soul Stage.
If it was today, Li Yuanfang would be more powerful when controlling the formation, as he was in the Intermediate Nascent Soul Stage now.
If Lin Feng was the one commanding the formation, it would be even more scary.
After Lin Feng included his own 49 Two Element Micro-Dust to suppress the formation, he allowed the powers of the Two Elements of Creation Formation to rise. But the problem still existed. Normally, it couldn’t be discovered, but against a strong opponent when precise control of the formation was needed, a powerful host of the formation was needed to unleash the powers of the formation to its fullest.
Many formations in the world needed someone to control them, while the powers of the formations were affected by the hosts’ powers.
But to see formations like the Two Elements of Creation Formation that relied entirely on the powers of the host, it was very rare.
And the problem did not just lie in the fact that the Two Elements of Creation Formation relied on the powers of the host. The magic treasures that formed the formation had also become a problem now.
Not only did Xiao Yan feel that the Ethereal Heart Cauldron was unable to keep up with his cultivation prowess, Lin Feng also felt that part of the magic treasures of the formation were no longer as useful as before.
Without the 49 Two Elements Micro-Dust to suppress the formation, the problem would have been even more obvious.
But this was not something that was discovered because an opponent had exploited it. Rather, Lin Feng discovered it as his cultivation increased.
For a formation that did not rely on geographical location, the quality of the magic treasures that formed it still affected its powers.
A classic example was the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation. While the formation disappeared for many years and eventually appeared in the hands of the Qiong Qi Grand Sage, it was still unable to repeat its former glory.
Lin Feng’s dream for the Two Elements of Creation Formation was to be similar to the Supreme Yin-Yang Void Formation of the Great Void Sect and the Vairocana Formation.
Although everyone praised the Two Elements of Creation Formation for matching up to the Supreme Yin-Yang Void Formation, Vairocana Formation and Immortal Heaven Universal Sword Formation, Lin Feng knew the limits of the Two Elements of Creation Formation.
In terms of the formation maps, the Two Elements of Creation Formation was not inferior to that of the Supreme Yin-Yang Void Formation or Vairocana Formation. But the truth was the Two Elements of Creation Formation was still inferior if all the formations were in their peak states.
The past Vairocana Formation was able to unleash its full powers and was recognized as the most powerful defensive formation in the Divine Lands. In terms of pure defensive strength, it was superior to the Supreme Yin-Yang Void Formation.
With a powerful Buddhist cultivator helming it and Mount Meru to suppress it, the defensive power of this formation would reach unbelievable levels.
If it was not overcame by the Hades Emperor during the War of the Two Worlds and Mount Meru was crushed, killing three Thunderclap Temple cultivators with Golden Form Third Level and ten of them with Golden forms, the War of Buddha Annihilation would not have proceeded so smoothly as the Vairocana Formation was crushed.
Even with the Formation-Bursting Drum in the destiny realm, there was not much hope in overcoming the indestructible defense of the formation.
In the current age, among everything in the Divine Lands, the only thing that was probably capable of overcoming the Vairocana Formation was the Supreme Heavenly Mirror.
Even Lin Feng did not have much confidence in doing so.
Whereas the other powerful formation in the Divine Lands, the Supreme Yin-Yang Void Formation relied on the geographical location of Mount Baiyun.
In the past, Mount Baiyun was where all the spiritual energy gathered. The Supreme Yin-Yang Void Formation tapped on this advantage. But as the spiritual energy changed its flow in the Divine Lands, this advantage was lost gradually.
The Great Void Sect had also been tweaking their formation to adapt to new conditions.
And to minimize the impact of changing conditions, the Great Void Sect came out with a new measure after a long period of research.
They planned to use their own powers to make up for the weakened geographical advantage. Twelve powerful Great Void Sect cultivators would enter the formation to hold the fort, allowing the powers of the formation to rise significantly. As the powers of the cultivators and the formation combined, they supplemented each other.
Along with the Supreme Heavenly Mirror, the Supreme Yin-Yang Void Formation could shift space temporarily and leave Mount Baiyun.
During the War of the Two Worlds, this happened and the formation shifted to the Great Thunderclap Temple. Along with the Supreme Heavenly Mirror, they fought Hades Emperor.
This was also the highest level that the formation managed to achieve in the current age.
A formation map was the foundation of a formation. But how high a formation could reach was decided by many things. Positive examples were the Supreme Yin-Yang Void Formation and negative examples were the Immortal Heaven Universal Sword Formation and Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation.
For the Immortal Heaven Universal Sword Formation, its powers fluctuated depending on the presence of the Saintly Celestial Sword or the accumulation of sword aura on the sword peaks.
Lin Feng was confident that he was a powerful figure now and was no longer someone who could be bullied. But he did not reckon that he was invincible too.
He remained prepared. The question that he was pondering over now was how to prevent the Two Elements of Creation Formation from becoming a negative example.
