Chapter 342: What Everyone Wants
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
After listening to Lin Feng’s words, Shi Zongyue and the rest were stunned.
Shi Zongyue was hesitant to speak. The Blue Pavilion Holy Master had a slightly closer relationship with Lin Feng and spoke with less reservations, “Master Lin, if you are alone, I fear that…”
Lin Feng replied calmly, “Please rest assure that I have the confidence to deal with the situation.”
“Passively waiting for the formation to attack us is not good idea. If we want to overcome the formation, we have to think of something to break it instead of retreating.”
Lin Feng looked at the flashing rays in the sky, “I believe that the three of you can tell that the attack on the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation by the Huo Family and their alliances has reached a critical point. If more help is rendered, they can overcome the formation.”
Shi Zongyue and the rest understood this point. As they wanted to stabilize the Ancient Huanghai World previously, they could only watch anxiously without providing help.
At this point, the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation went obscure suddenly. Lin Feng and the rest were anxious as they knew that the third attack was impending.
Mercury flashed with a bright radiance suddenly. At the same time, a streak of blue light beam was emitted out of the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation. It was targeted towards the opening of the Ancient Huanghai World below it.
Lin Feng could barely see hundreds and thousands of spell formations flashing within the light beam. Each and every of the formation seemed to contain the water-type spiritual power of the oceans. It left one frightened.
Whereas now these hundreds and thousands of spell formations gathered together to form a vigorous light beam and was striking down towards the four of them.
Lin Feng squinted his eyes slightly. This was the strongest attack he had faced ever since he came to this world.
This attack tapped on the tremendous powers of the stars and could move Heaven and Earth. Regardless of whatever Immortal Soul Avatar or magic treasure, they were not even worth a mention in the face of such an attack.
Within the group of Immortal Soul Stage Elders, except for Shi Zongyue, whoever had to face this streak of light beam were bound to get seriously injured. To even survive this attack would be a miracle.
Lin Feng lifted his head to look at the descending light beam. He stretched out his hand and whipped out a huge black umbrella.
The pupils of the Shi Zongyue and the other two shrank. With their intelligence gathering powers, they naturally heard of the Stellar Holy Man’s unsuccessful encounter with the umbrella on Xingyun Peak.
But, could this umbrella withstand the attack of the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation?
Lin Feng was also unsure, but for the disciples in the Ancient Huanghai World, he had no choice but to press on.
The blue light beam was about to hit. The three of the elders opened their eyes wide and were ready to help Lin Feng.
But their eyes became wider and wider immediately and their gazes became more and more sluggish.
The huge light beam was about a kilometer away before a weird tune reverberated through space. The light beam became extremely thin in an instant and landed on Lin Feng’s Sky-Shielding Umbrella eventually.
That was as if a basin of water was about to be spilled on Lin Feng, but landed on the umbrella and deflected away from it, not causing Lin Feng to be even touched by a drop of water.
But the water was converted to a huge wave instantaneously as it was deflected away from the umbrella. It caused the vast lands of the Sea of the Northern Winds to be drowned in water and the entire land area was about to become an ocean.
This scene showed that Lin Feng did not block off just a basin of water, but the attack of a water-type spiritual power.
Under the control of the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation, this spiritual power possessed a tremendous destructive strength.
But now that it was quickly dispersed by the Sky-Shielding Umbrella, it was converted to normal flowing water. Although the volume was infinitely high, it did not possess the frightening power that it did before.
As the Sky-Shielding Umbrella was raised, everything under it was protected even if the skies were unrelenting.
Shi Zongyue and the Vivant Joy Holy Master regained their awareness. They used various methods to collect the flowing water. Such a huge volume of water should not be allowed to flood the place, otherwise, the entire southeast area of the Great Qin Empire will be flooded into a huge swamp comparable to the Great Swamp of the Ancient Regions.
They looked at Lin Feng at this point and were not just cautious and fearful anymore.
Although Lin Feng was not present when the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation first attacked, he was able to turn the tables around by using his powers even though he had just arrived not long ago.
First, he used a formation to stabilize the Ancient Huanghai World. After that, he could resist the attack of the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation without being hurt in the process.
With his methods, he could be considered as resourceful and invincible.
Shi Zongyue and the other two had lived for thousands of years and they had seen many people with such invincible powers. But they had not expected to witness someone of Lin Feng’s prowess. They had even thought they had overestimated him, but it seemed like they had underestimated him instead.
Lin Feng held the umbrella up and kept it above the opening of the Ancient Huanghai World. His gaze was fixated on the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation and he said calmly, “Let me settle things here.”
Even though he had said it before, the three Immortal Soul Stage Elders felt different when he said it again.
Shi Zongyue gritted his teeth, “I shall bring the Hidden Dragon Gorge over. The two of you stay here to help Master Lin.”
After he finished speaking, Shi Zongyue carried along the Hidden Dragon Gorge and flew up. As he was tied down by the Ancient Huanghai World, he could only withhold his punches and not retaliate. He was withholding all the anger in his heart.
The figure of an elder with a long beard flew out from the Hidden Dragon Gorge and his face was equally sulky. He was the spirit of the magic treasure of the Hidden Dragon Gorge and he was extremely unhappy.
Although it opened an Alternate World Time Zone internally, the Hidden Dragon Gorge was actually a magic treasure that was designed to kill. Stabilizing space was not its strongest suit. The true power of the Hidden Dragon Gorge was its slaughtering ability.
Shi Zongyue shouted and his body was converted to a light figure. In mid-space, a huge person around the height of nearly three hundred feet appeared. His body was burning with a ferocious fire. It had a dragon head but a human body and its roar broke through the Nine Heavens.
Crimson Imperial Dragon King!
As the Crimson Imperial Dragon King revealed himself, burning flames started to engulf the ground. Regardless of Huo Xiu or Lin Feng and the rest, they could feel the burning sensation engulfing them. With their cultivation, they felt as if they fell into an oven.
This was the natural aura that the Crimson Imperial Dragon King exuded and not an attack that he initiated. The vast ground of the Sea of the Northern Wind was burnt and tiny cracks started to appear on the ground.
As the Hidden Dragon Gorge vibrated, its size grew larger gradually. It became a hundred feet high and its diameter was the size of ten huge gorges. As the powerful mana vibration dispersed, it caused cracks in the surrounding space.
Flashing golden light dragons began to fly out of the gorge opening and orbited around the right shoulder of the Crimson Imperial Dragon King. The Crimson Imperial Dragon King lifted his own right shoulder and the burning flames infused with the golden light dragons, forming a streak of golden light beam which shot straight towards the Nine Heavens.
The areas in which the golden light beam interacted with experienced a dispersal in the spatial waves. The light beam contained an all-conquering and magnificent power concept. It seemed to puncture through unlimited worlds until it reached its target and it was unwavering.
Even the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation experienced slight tremors. Under the combined efforts of Shi Zongyue and the Hidden Dragon Gorge, this ultimate attack was unleashed.
The distant horizon burst out in flames and it engulfed the entire sky, causing it to become a crimson red color.
Although this strike by Shi Zongyue was slightly less powerful than the attack of the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation, it caused tremors among the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation as it struck it. Some of the runes at the edges of the formation were even damaged.
After the damage occurred, the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation started to repair itself rapidly. But Huo Xiu, Sword Radiance Swordmaster and the rest would not give it any opportunity to do so.
All their attacks were focused on the flaw that Shi Zongyue had created. As a few Immortal Soul Stage Elders joined hands to attack, the firmament was about to be torn apart. The damaged formation was also about to collapse and the portions of it that were broken had become more and more.
The radiance of the formation became dimmer and the huge cracks in the sky began to consolidate. The cosmic skies became further and further away and looked to disappear soon.
But no one was taking it easy. That was because they found out that Mars was getting brighter and brighter!
“There is still a fourth attack?”
The Sword Radiance Swordmaster’s expression changed. He stared at the formation and said in a deep voice, “It wants to abandon the defensive powers of the formation and speed up the fourth attack.”
A group of the elders were in low spirits as they heard that. Previously when the formation struck for the first time, it took a while before the second blow came. But it was not because the formation was natural in this way. It was because the formation had to conserve a certain portion of its power to resist their attacks, which slowed down the rate of attacks.
But it was obvious the opponent was about to strike for the last time. That caused the abandonment of its defensive powers and engaged the attacks of the elders willingly. However, the fourth attack was about to be unleashed.
Prince Xian of the Left looked extremely ghastly, “The fourth strike taps on the cosmic powers of Mars. It is similar to the Venus in the first attack and will be stronger than the second and third attack!”
The first attack tapped on the cosmic powers of Venus and destroyed the defensive formation of the Sea of the Northern Wind of the Great Qin Empire.
That formation was definitely not in the same level as that of the Great Qin Empire’s Grand Protection Formation. Furthermore, the geographical conditions of the Sea of the Northern Wind were average. However, it was still a powerful formation but was still destroyed by the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation.
The second attack using Jupiter and the third attack using Mercury were in fact slightly weaker.
But now, the destructive power similar to the first strike was incoming!
Under the command of Shi Zongyue, the Immortal Soul Stage Elders were attacking the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation frantically. They wanted to destroy it before the fourth attack could be unleashed.
Their combined attack was not to be trifled with. They destroyed the formation in a few moments completely.
But they were still one step late. A streak of crimson red light beam was descending from the sky and it was more ferocious than the combined attack of Shi Zongyue and the Hidden Dragon Gorge. It was targeting the opening of the Ancient Huanghai World with a tremendously violent power.
At this point, everyone was looking upwards.
Lin Feng was holding the Sky-Shielding Umbrella and watching the entire scene quietly.
