Chapter 372: Tearing it Apart
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
For an average person, his attitude in his own turf and someone else’s turf would be different. It was not due to fear or prudence. On the contrary, it was due to an innate self-defense mechanism.
As Lin Feng stood on the mountain ridge and looked at Jun Zining and the Yang Family cultivators, it was as if a house owner was looking amusedly at a few kids who had trespassed into his house for fun.
His attitude made Jun Zining ponder over things, “The north foot of Mount Kunlun has seen the rise of a great power in this new era, named the Celestial Sect of Wonders. Is he a disciple of the Celestial Sect of Wonders?”
As she thought of this point, a glimmer of hope arose in her mind. “I heard my father said before that the Celestial Sect of Wonders and the Purple Clouds Sect share a cordial relationship. Although our Jun Family has no ties with the Celestial Sect of Wonders, it is still possible to form some ties with them. He might be my savior.”
After struggling to dodge another one of the attacks, Jun Zining shouted at Lin Feng, “Are you a senior from the Celestial Sect of Wonders?”
As her words reverberated, the three Yang Family Cultivators who were surrounding her were shocked. As they looked at Lin Feng, they were a little more wary and cautious.
Although they came from the Ancient Yuantian World and knew little about the rising Celestial Sect of Wonders in the Divine Lands, they still had to know more about the north foot of Mount Kunlun since they were on the move.
If this was a person from another sect, then forget it. But if he was a Celestial Sect disciple, then he must be treated with caution. If one was not cautious enough, he might land into big trouble.
Lin Feng looked at Jun Zining curiously. Although she was only 11 or 12 years old, Lin Feng could tell that she was a cunning person. She was like Xiao Budian.
But Xiao Budian was clever. If Lin Feng did not know that he was actually a cunning person, he might only have thought that Xiao Budian liked to act cute.
Jun Zining said hurriedly, “Senior, I am a successor of the Purple Clouds Sect. On the account that our families have close ties, please lend me a hand.”
The Yang Family cultivators were shocked. They did not know what to say.
Although the Jun Family was the representative of the Purple Clouds Sect in the Ancient Yuantian World and they also received advice on mantras and abhijna from the Purple Clouds Sect, they could not be truly considered as a sub-branch of the Purple Clouds Sect.
But it was true that Jun Zining had a long history with the Purple Clouds Sect. The Yang Family cultivators looked at Lin Feng and were worried, “If this person does not recognize the difference between the Purple Clouds Sect and the Jun Family, then he might be fooled by Jun Zining.”
One of them even stepped out and waved his hand at Lin Feng, “My friend, we have a personal vendetta with her. We hope you do not interfere.”
Lin Feng smiled slightly, “If the three of you leave now, then we shall let this matter rest.”
The Yang Family cultivators looked ghastly, “We are on opposite sides then.” The three of them looked at one another and nodded their heads in unison. They each drew out a small flag. The black flag moved with the wind and was converted to a huge flag a few feet high rapidly. As the flag flew, there were gusts of wind that blew from the Nine Netherworld Hell.
The three Yang Family cultivators started to read out incantations together. A huge triangular formation map pattern appeared on the ground and covered the entire mountain valley.
The complex patterns flashed a bright purple radiance. This left Jun Zining looking ghastly, “The Lightning Purgatory Formation!”
The three corners of the formation each shot out a light beam. They intersected in space and condensed to form a huge transparent light ball. This light ball resonated a muffled, rumbling sound, like a dark lightning cloud that never rained.
The light ball was suspended above Lin Feng and Jun Zining. It emanated a frightening aura and the vibration of its mana was petrifying.
Lin Feng was in awe as he looked at this scene, “Oh? What a wonderful formation. So, it seems that the Yang Family is close to the Netherworld Sect?”
After the three Yang Family cultivators heard Lin Feng, they were despondent. He had discovered their identities and even knew that behind the Yang Family was the Samsara Sect. Amidst all these, he was not even bothered about it.
This person was either too powerful or a lunatic.
But the three of them were still confident of their combined power that had produced the Lightning Purgatory Formation.
In fact, the cultivations of these three Foundation Establishment Stage cultivators were insufficient to control this formation. Even for Aurous Core Stage cultivators, they were also unable to control it themselves.
But with the three flags with them, they could realize all of this.
These three flags were Foundation Establishment Stage magic items. Each of these flags were useless by themselves.
Their purposes were the same. It was to form the Lightning Purgatory Formation.
And the power of the Lightning Purgatory Formation was enough to make one pleased. Lin Feng could feel the ferocious and vast lightning-type spiritual power contained within the light ball. It was as if a ceiling of lightning had engulfed the place.
But to Lin Feng, he was unbothered, since it was only his avatar on this mountain valley.
Lin Feng was more interested as he looked at the formation. He had words of praise for it, “The mantras of the Samsara Sect are indeed special.”
Following hundred thousand years of development, besides the magnificence of the Six Paths of Samsara, there had also been a huge progress and change in the practicality of the mantras and abhijna.
Among the Six Paths of Samsara, the physical martial arts and the killer mantras of the Asura Form cultivators were the most brutal.
The Beast Form was renowned for rearing spiritual beasts and commanding these beasts to go into battle. The powers of the cultivators themselves were not as outstanding.
The Hungry Ghoul Path specialized in rearing all types of spiritual ghosts. The abilities of their cultivators were like the Beast Form. They were personally not as powerful as their spiritual ghosts.
But for the cultivators in the Beast Path and the Hungry Ghoul Path, due to the spiritual beasts and the spiritual ghosts, they were likely to supersede the battling powers of cultivators in the same realm.
The human cultivation relies on emotions and desires. All forms of abhijna can be birthed from there. There were mantras, illusions and many others. But then their battling powers were the weakest.
But after the human cultivators experience their cultivation in terms of their emotions and desires, their mind would be upgraded rapidly. They would also experience lesser bottlenecks in their cultivation process too. That was why it was easier for them to cultivate compared to the other mantras of the Samsara Sect. The cultivators relied on a higher form of cultivation to compensate for the shortcomings in their own mantras and powers.
The Heaven Form was always touted as the top out of the Six Paths of Samsara. In the internal dispute of the Samsara Sect, it was always the other sects who colluded to deal with the Heaven Form.
Whereas for the Netherworld Path, their main abhijna was their formations. There were many types of formations – quick but weak, slow but powerful, fixed, flexible, controlled by one person…it was like a boundless netherworld.
Lin Feng shook his head in laughter, “The various mantras and abhijnas were eclectic and flourished. However, they were used to deal with its own sect members. If the deceased elders of the Samsara Sect were to know, how will they react?”
“The Six Paths of the Samsara Sect has experienced huge progress. If the Six Paths were to combine into one, they can replace the empty seat left by the Great Thunderclap Temple after it was destroyed. Along with the Mount Shu Sword Sect and the Great Void Sect, they can be termed the new Three Great Holy Grounds.”
Jun Zining shouted at Lin Feng anxiously, “Why are you still laughing. If you have an idea quickly think of it. If you do not have, then let us run!”
She felt a little regretful now for bringing Lin Feng into this mess.
To capture her alive, her opponents did not unleash all their powers. If they had used the Lightning Purgatory Formation earlier, the Liyuan Sword would also be unable to stop her. After all, the Liyuan Sword was a sword item and defending was not its strong suit.
Lin Feng smiled a little and shook his head, “No worries.”
As he was saying, the purple light from the light ball above his head started to shine in a tilted direction. However, there was no sound. In the silence contained a destructive power.
Lin Feng did not even look and punched his fist forward. He directly punctured the air in the space above him. This let out a huge roaring sound.
This explosive power immediately dissipated the purple light.
The three Yang Family cultivators were stunned, “Surely not?!”
“So powerful?” Jun Zining consolidated her feelings and shouted hurriedly, “The flag, the flag is the key to breaking their formation! If you destroy one side of the flag, the entire formation will…”
Before she finished speaking, Jun Zining’s voice was jammed. She opened her eyes wide and just look at Lin Feng in a daze.
She saw Lin Feng standing still suddenly. The mountain ridge below seemed to have been crushed by someone. He flew up and grabbed the light ball.
“No!” Jun Zining was so anxious until she almost went mad. She knew that the attack of the formation did not just come in one wave. This was a formation that attacked its opponents continuously until the opponents were destroyed.
Inside the light ball contained an unlimited amount of lightning spiritual energy. It was much stronger than the attacking power of just one wave of lightning.
The three Yang Family cultivators were delighted. Their moods now were in complete reverse with Jun Zining’s mood. “How dare you. If you had really attacked the flag, you might have really broken the formation.”
“But now, you are courting death!”
The three of them revealed a creepy laughter at the same time. Jun Zining commanded the Liyuan Sword and wanted to help Lin Feng. But following that, they saw a shocking scene.
In the air, Lin Feng’s hands became claws and he directly grabbed hold of the light ball and then tore it apart!
The light ball was exploded apart and the unlimited lightning spiritual energy was dissipated and converted to streaks of lightning. But before they could react, it had already dissipated.
Lin Feng’s claws destroyed the source of the Lightning Purgatory Formation in the light ball. As the light ball was destroyed, the triangular formation map pattern had also disappeared.
The three black flags on the ground were torn apart with a big hole.
The cultivators were extremely shocked and looked at Lin Feng fearfully, “Who is this guy? An Aurous Core Stage cultivator cannot destroy the Lightning Purgatory Formation so easily!”
Lin Feng looked down at Jun Zining, “Why do we have to go to so much trouble?”
Jun Zining was speechless. But following that, her expression changed. “Shit, these three flags are definitely not created by this three Foundation Establishment Stage cultivators. It must be their elders. Now that it has been destroyed, they will be informed.”
Lin Feng laughed, “They are here.”
Before he even finished speaking, the horizon in the distance appeared a spatial crack. A figure emerged from within.
The despondent cultivators were now excited, “The grandmaster is here!”
It was a middle-aged man with a long beard. He looked at Lin Feng coldly, “So what if you are from the Celestial Sect of Wonders? I will teach you a lesson today for your seniors and elders. How dare you mess with the Yang Family? Regardless of who you are, you have to die.”
As he said, he pointed a finger at Lin Feng and a formation appeared on Lin Feng’s leg suddenly.
