Chapter 463: Shattering of the Nine Luminaries
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
The trembling of the Heavenly Oyster’s Golden Pearl shocked Lin Feng slightly. “Could it be that the legends of the connection between this magic treasure and the Royal Hades Region are true?”
He reminisced the scene within the Secret Treasure of Kun Peng and the pressure he faced from the Immemorial Kun Peng, as well as the supreme aura that emanated from within the pearl that flickered for a split second.
He tried to connect the dots as both scenes made sense with each other. Lin Feng began to ponder, “If that’s the case, then the Golden Crow’s demise was not for naught.”
At this point, he directly channeled the power of the Black Heavenly Treasure Tree and ripped open the void to temporarily shake off Xin Longsheng and arrived at the main battlefield at the heart of the Cloud Forest Trees.
Xin Longsheng shook the longsword in his hand and the single point of radiance instantly unleashed its brilliance. Even more fearsome and ferocious sword Qi were unleashed and chased Lin Feng through the void – he was not cutting Lin Feng any slack at all.
As he felt the Saintly Celestial Sword Qi behind his back – which crossed unlimited space with a speed that rivaled Mount Yujing – Lin Feng furrowed his brows while his gaze remained trained at the shattered Netherworld Disc.
The disc shattered into pieces when the two streaks of divine light clashed with each other. The purple-gold light from the Imperial Palace and the countless numbers of golden clouds clashed with each other and roamed the skies like innumerable golden dragons in the sky. The force of it all broke the Cosmic Vital Spirit.
Clouds of golden light filled the skies. There were flickers of purple radiance that came and went – the Hades’ Dark Mantra.
In the next moment, a pale hand and a black metal-like black claw and another streak of purple-gold divine light grabbed on the Hades’ Dark Mantra at the same time.
The hand belonged to the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage while the claw belonged to the Golden Roc Grand Sage. The second streak of purple-gold light came from the Imperial Palace. The three entities made a grab at the world-devastating divine light as they tugged amongst each other.
The Xuan Lin Holy Man stepped back on the stone stairs. He actually had a chance if he channeled the power of the Thousand-Edge Flowing Radiance Mirror – until the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage reached out with the second hand.
The Thousand-Edge Flowing Radiance Mirror unleashed thousands of constantly transforming layers of space-time dimensions and planes in resistance, but the other hand of the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage also began to respond in kind. A blurry and murky radiance sparkled on her palm as she reached out and fixed all the transforming planes and dimensions in place!
Even though all this happened in an instant, the abhijna of the Thousand-Edge Flowing Radiance Mirror was broken and negated by the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage with immediate effect. She flicked her fingers and hit the Xuan Lin Holy Man with a force that knocked him backwards. If not for his quick reactions, the Thousand-Edge Flowing Radiance Mirror would have been stolen by the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage.
As Lin Feng was observing all this, his eyes froze momentarily. “The mutability of the integration of Mount Yujing and the Black Heavenly Treasure Tree is far greater than that of the Thousand-Edge Flowing Radiance Mirror. I wonder if the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage can fixate that as well?”
Everything happened within the blink of an eye. After being hindered by the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage for that one moment, he ended up one step behind and was ultimately left in the dust. The Hades’ Dark Mantra ended up being grabbed by the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage, the Golden Roc Grand Sage as well as the Imperial Palace.
The shattered pieces of the disc shot in all directions. Due to the fact that they had just absorbed the essence of a Cloud Forest Tree each, Long Ye and the Sirius Grand Sage barely had the ability to defend themselves. However, for everyone else who were sacrificed, their immortal souls were in ruins and were about to be incapacitated by this calamity.
Lin Feng’s eyes flickered and used his mana to sweep away Shi Zongyue, the Stellar Holy Man and the Virtuous Zen Master.
As for the Guanchong Swordmaster, he could only hope for the best.
On the other side of things, the three powers were still tugging at the disc. At the same time, they all had to take care not to incur the wrath of the Hades’ Dark Mantra. The Heavenly Charms Grand Sage and the Golden Roc Grand Sage, as practitioners of the Hades’ Dark Mantra, had an advantage and they were just about to shake off the purple-gold divine light from the Imperial Palace.
The Imperial Palace was not about to give up, however. Within the radiance of the royal pavilions, thousands and thousands of subjects and citizens began to chant and sing as they linked their collective power to the royal pavilions. The power of the Imperial Palace received an instant boost and they did not concede a single inch.
The sky shook with the sheer force of the three great powers challenging one another. The realm of the Cloud Forest Trees began to collapse as giant gashes appeared between Heaven and Earth, as if the body of the world itself sustained countless numbers of injuries.
The battle of several great powers and their clashes of force were about to lead this middle world to its ruin.
In the sky somewhere higher, the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation was also going head to head with a golden dragon with a colorless and sparkling brilliance.
A formidable strike by the Nine-Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation was whipped by the tail of the golden dragon and was immediately misdirected, and ended up going directly for the Hades’ Dark Mantra below them.
Lin Feng was decisive as he channeled the power of the Heavenly Oyster’s Golden Pearl as well as the collective power of Mount Yujing, the Black Heavenly Treasure Tree and the Heaven-Revolving Purple Clouds. The total power of the four entities began to flicker with transformations once again as he dodged the Saintly Celestial Sword Qi that was right behind him and went straight for the Hades’ Dark Mantra.
Xin Longsheng was prepared this time, however. The Saintly Celestial Sword Qi trembled in the air and detected Lin Feng’s movements in that minute instant and continued breaking through the void to run him down.
Even so, Lin Feng was equally prepared. After the first transformation, another one followed!
This time, Lin Feng channeled the power of instantaneous changes in time to the maximum and almost went beyond his own abilities – if that did happen, he would have been lost in the flowing river of time.
Xin Longsheng saved the Guanchong Swordmaster, who was very dear death at that point, as he once again chased Lin Feng down. However, the Saintly Celestial Sword Qi miscalculated Lin Feng’s position and chose the wrong space-time plane and went straight for the Hades’ Dark Mantra.
At the same time, the mana and power of the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation and the golden dragon also fell downwards in the same direction.
The Heavenly Charms Grand Sage, the Golden Roc Grand Sage and the Imperial Palace were entangled with each other with no observable progress. The combined power of all six sources landed upon the Hades’ Dark Mantra – the explosiveness of boundless power caused the Hades’ Dark Mantra to split into three separate pieces!
Lin Feng squinted and observed that the splitting of the Hades’ Dark Mantra was not because it shattered into three pieces, but it seemed to insidiously absorb the power of the six different sources and split into three streaks of purple divine light by itself.
Once the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage, the Golden Roc Grand Sage and the Great Zhou Empire obtained a part of the Hades’ Dark Mantra each, they all withdrew immediately and worked on suppressing the power of the Hades’ Dark Mantra in their hands.
After the Heavenly Oyster’s Golden Pearl trembled, it landed back in Lin Feng’s hands and there seemed to be nothing conspicuously different from before. However, if one observed closely, the golden mist-like energy within the magic pearl flickered with flowing purple light.
“I shall have to go back and mull over it.” Lin Feng raised his head and looked up as he saw the Five-Colored Golden Dragon and the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation. Their battle had reached its climax, and at this point the void split open once again and a streak of cloudy white mist emerged from within.
The Leader of the Mount Shu Sword Sect Xin Longsheng immediately withdrew his sword and gave up on Lin Feng as he shifted his gaze towards that streak of cloudy white mist.
The cloudy mist drifted like a normal gust of wind and directly cut between the Five-Colored Golden Dragon an the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation – and enveloped the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation in an instant!
A gargantuan magic formation that spanned dozes of kilometers long was enveloped by the cloudy mist in no time.
The pitch-black galaxy appeared in the sky while the Nine Luminaries grew gloomy and dark.
The cloudy mist cut off the connection between the magic formation and the Nine Luminaries in space!
The Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation’s source of power came from the boundless star-based power of the Nine Luminaries of the universe. Once their source of power was cut off, then the entire magic formation began to crumble.
The Grand Sage of Qiong Qi’s expression became extremely solemn. “Yan Nanlai!”
The current leader of the Great Void Sect, Yan Nanlai!
Since the great battle from the previous conflict between the two worlds, the previous leader of the Great Void Sect, Tai Yi Holy Man, endured grievous injuries and retreated into the Supreme Elder Council. Since then, Yan Nanlai took over the role of leader, and until now more than four thousand years had passed.
The white cloudy mist came from Yan Nanlai’s mana. The Grand Sage of Qiong Qi did not dare to underestimate the new adversary, and immediately channeled the power of the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation to the maximum.
Within the magic formation, nine different light illusions flickered about and summoned vast power before combining to rip the white clouds apart and reestablished the connection with the Nine Luminaries in the galaxy.
The Grand Sage of Qiong Qi let loose a sinister laugh and exclaimed, “The Nine Luminaries Peak!”
The Nine Luminaries sparkled with dazzling radiance and the brilliant power of the stars flowed continuously through the void towards the magic formation.
The vast power shook the already weak Cloud Forest World and brought it to the brink of collapse.
“Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!”
At this moment, roaring drum sounds rang out continuously. The fearsome aura from the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation was suppressed in an instant, and this ancient and fearsome magic formation that was also the pinnacle of all magic formations of the demon race began to tremble as if it was facing its greatest adversary.
Every booming sound, as it rang out, seemed to open a new ancient universe and shatter the current world while they transformed into barren lands.
Everybody at the scene grew solemn at the sight. “It’s the Formation Bursting Drum!”
The counter to the myriad of magic formations of the world, and the Great Void Sect’s proudest treasure – the Formation Bursting Drum. The drums beat and beat as the booming sounds dominated the earth!
Even though this magic treasure was directed at the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation, Lin Feng could feel that his Two Elements of Creation Formation began to tremble faintly. The Imperial Palace that was hidden away somewhere in the void was also flickering with golden light as the magic formations set up around the pavilions began to shake unstably, as if they were about to be shattered.
The white cloudy mist surged forward again as it attempted to fix the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation in place. Suddenly, a flash of golden light split the sky as the Golden Roc Grand Sage landed within the magic formation. The Grand Sage of Qiong Qi immediately stood aside and passed the reins of control to the Golden Roc Grand Sage.
The Golden Roc Grand Sage howled and uncountable streaks of golden light could be seen emanating from all over his body. Every bit of it entered the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation and forcibly stabilized the magic formation.
“Yan Nanlai, today is not the day. The Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation lacked the core magic treasure to support its heart, and the materials used to set it up were also not of the same quality.” The Golden Roc Grand Sage said quietly, “In future days, I shall personally procure the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation in its peak condition and destroy your Formation Bursting Drum and subsequently eliminate your Great Void Sect.”
He channeled his demonic power and the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation instantly became a patch of pitch black and grew boundlessly gloomy. However, it was still charged with an unspeakable aura of a world-swallowing quality. It became like a giant black hole and was about to swallow the Cloud Forest World whole.
Under the control of the Golden Roc Grand Sage, the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation unleashed its ninth attack. It drew upon the power of the dark star, Rahu, and instantly swallowed a great piece of Yan Nanlai’s white cloudy mist.
When the next ring of the Formation Bursting Drum rang out, the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation reversed in an instant and transformed into a tiny black dot. The Golden Roc Grand Sage opened his mouth and swallowed it, and swept away the Grand Sage of Qiong Qi as they morphed into a ray of flowing light and escaped with dazzling speed.
At this point, he unleashed his natural speed and nobody could catch up with him anymore.
However, how could the rest of them just let the former get away just like that?
Yan Nanlai, the Five-Colored Golden Dragon and the Xuan Lin Holy Man unleashed their attacks at the same time. Even the Heavenly Charms Grand Sage and the Imperial Palace, who were at the side attempting to suppress the Hades’ Dark Mantra, began to enter the fray once again.
A whole group of Immortal Soul Third Level powerhouses attacking at the same time had a force that much resembled an apocalypse of ages
The cosmic vital energy dissipated in its entirety, and the forces that supported the Cloud Forest World completely collapsed. The chaos energy between heaven and earth filled the sky like a spider web!
An entire middle world, destroyed!
Faced with such great forces of assault, the Golden Roc Grand Sage’s cold eyes sparkled with boundless grimness. He spit out the Nine Luminaries Heaven-Crushing Formation from his mouth, and nine light illusions within the formation trembled once again.
The entire magic formation erupted into pieces. Nine streaks of blinding light shot outwards in all directions, much like the path of destruction of the Nine Luminaries in the galaxy!
