Chapter 843: Dismembering the Celestial Sect of Wonders
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Out of the two elders that came, one of them was the leader of the East Heaven’s Gate, Shao Dongtian. He was in the Immortal Soul Third Level.
Behind him was another elder who was a senior member of the East Heaven’s Gate who was in the Immortal Soul Second Level, the East Sea Holy Man.
Zhang Enrui laughed, “Greetings to Master Shao.”
He placed his wine cup to his lips before laughing, “Besides Zhu Yi, who has a little enmity with you, the rest of the Four Heroes of the Celestial Sect are also exceptional.”
“Xiao Yan, the most senior disciple of Lin Feng, is extremely talented. He is able to possess five Primordial Fires at once, which is something never seen before. Furthermore, he can fuse the different Primordial Fires. The destructiveness of his powers can be said to be the best among the Four Heroes of the Celestial Sect of Wonders.”
“I dare to say that every Immortal Soul Second Level cultivator have to be wary of him, not to even mention those in the Immortal Soul First Level.”
In the eyes of this bunch of Immortal Soul Stage Elders, Zhu Yi was the best among the Four Heroes of the Celestial Sect. But Xiao Yan was the most annoying. That’s because the explosive powers of the Heaven Fire Lotus were extremely terrifying. Although unleashing this attack was likely to drain him of his energy and leave him vulnerable to attacks by others, this abhijna of his was able to exterminate anyone in the same level as him.
Even for those more powerful than him, this attack might still able to kill them.
There was some illogical reasoning involved in this. If one could resist his attack, then he would lose. But if one could not do so, he would be killed.
If one was not much stronger than him, he would still be killed.
Zhang Enrui poured himself some wine again, “Wang Lin has the Gods-Sealing Banner. If he can trap an Immortal Soul First Level cultivator, it’s still fine. But if he can trap an Immortal Soul Second Level cultivator, it’ll be interesting then.”
“In that case, his powers should be above most Immortal Soul Second Level cultivator. If an Immortal Soul Second Level does not have a magic treasure, then he will be in trouble.”
As he laughed, Zhang Enrui looked at the East Sea Holy Man behind Shao Dongtian.
The East Sea Holy Man smiled back and his gaze was focused on the people behind Zhang Enrui. Over there, there were cultivators from the Path of Humanity. There was another Immortal Soul Second Level among these cultivators.
But everyone knew that the battling powers of the Samsara Sect’s Path of Humanity were very weak.
Zhang Enrui was not embarrassed by that and he continued laughing, “As for the youngest one, we all know how good he is. With two Holy Light of Creations on him, he has been traveling in and out of the Barren Expanses. There’s news that he killed a Demonic Saint when he was in the Intermediate Stage of the Nascent Soul Stage. He even met a Tao Wu and cut off its flesh.”
“Previously, someone saw him at the Void Battleground. He had already cultivated the Cosmic Form and ascended to the Advanced Stage of the Nascent Soul Stage. He even clashed with a demon with the original true spirit, but I wonder if he has returned? If he has returned, I believe that there are few below the Immortal Soul Second Level that can challenge him.”
The East Sea Holy Man laughed slightly while saying, “Elder Zhang is definitely unafraid.”
Zhang Enrui laughed loudly, “Not necessarily so. I’m never very good at battling others, but I dare to claim myself as the best wine-taster in the entire Divine Lands.”
“We should get going.” Shi Tianfang said, “The Mount Shu cultivators should be here soon. We shall not wait for them.”
“Xiao Yan, Zhu Yi, Wang Lin and Shi Tianhao are indeed exceptional. But before they form the Immortal Soul, they are still lacking the cutting edge. Without Lin Feng around, the most difficult character to deal with is still the Dual Polarity Heavenly Mountain. But he’s not much of a concern either.”
As Shi Tianfang spoke, he was already proceeding towards Mount Yujing.
Shao Dongtian paused for a moment before advancing forward too.
They were in the mood for chatting, but the time was not right. Furthermore, they had used their supernatural awareness to figure out the defensive restrictions on Mount Yujing, thus they were eager to make a move immediately.
As Shi Tianfang advanced forward, he looked at Shao Dongtian and his gaze flashed, “No wonder you have come on behalf of the Great Zhou Empire. Not only are you here, even the East Sea Holy Man is here. I believe the East Heaven’s Gate must have obtained some juicy benefits from the Great Zhou Empire.”
“Xuan Heaven Seal, you fell to the metaplasia realm when the Heaven’s Gate was destroyed during the end of the Antiquity Age. But now, you have returned to the Mahayana realm. It’s indeed joyous news.”
A radiance flashed beside Shao Dongtian and void space cracked open. A man in black walked out. He had a rectangular face and looked fierce. He held a pitch-black seal in his hand.
It was the Xuan Heaven Seal (of the North), one of the Nine Treasures of the Heaven’s Gate!
As compared to the time in the Ying Sea when it was still in the metaplasia realm, the Xuan Heaven Seal did not exude such a frightening aura now. But now, looking at the Xuan Heaven Seal gave the feeling that one was looking at the vast sky.
As he saw the Xuan Heaven Seal, there was a light projection above Shi Tianfang that shook a little. A huge, roulette that came from void space surfaced.
The roulette was divided into six equal parts, and each of these parts was of a different color. There were different types of carvings inscribed on the roulette. The carvings seemed extremely ingrained on the roulette, but they also seemed to be undergoing constant transformations.
The white part of the roulette shone with a gentle radiance. The carving was one of a small human figure. Although the appearance of the figure could not be seen clearly, there was a divine feel to this figure. At the same time, the rising and the setting of the Sun and Moon was shown. As the luminaries intersected, the image of all life in the world seemed extremely miraculous.
The blood-red part revealed a dim and evil aura, causing one to feel repressed. At the same time, it felt wild and bloody, as if it could call out the deepest and purest killing intent in anyone’s heart. The carvings revealed countless figures attacking each other with strong killer auras.
The black part revealed levels and levels of hell. Fire, quicksand, ice, spear mountains…they acted out the countless sufferings, evoking a sense of desperation and desolation.
The green part was carved with distorted faces. Jealousy, pain, hate, fury, sorrow…there were countless fierce and evil faces, as well as hungry ghouls that screamed in horror.
The purple part was filled with carvings of different types of animals. The smaller ones included snakes, worms, rats, insects, pigs, dogs, cows, and goats, while the bigger ones included rhinoceroses, elephants, dragons, Kun Pengs, huge Rocs…there were many classes of them.
The last part was extremely colorful. The carvings transformed quickly, revealing a strong sense of change.
It was as if there were six forms of the Heavens and Earth, six different worlds, six different types of principles. And all these were changing constantly.
At the center of the roulette where the six parts met, there was a human face. The face looked at Shao Dongtian, the Xuan Heaven Seal, and East Sea Holy Man calmly.
As he saw this roulette, Shao Dongtian nodded his head, “Wheel of the Six Paths!”
The Wheel of the Six Paths was the magic treasure of the Samsara Sect in the Mahayana realm. In the past, it was the natal magic treasure of the Samsara Priest. After the Samsara Priest passed on, it landed in the hands of the Path of the Heaven-Born. That’s also one of the reasons why many people thought the Path of the Heaven Born was the strongest out of the Six Paths of the Samsara Sect.
Even as the Xuan Heaven Seal saw this magic treasure, it creased its brows. At its peak, it was unafraid of the Wheel of the Six Paths. But now that it was just back in the Mahayana realm, it was less confident when facing the Wheel of the Six Paths which was in its peak state.
The human face in the center of the Wheels of the Six Path opened his mouth and said, “Let’s settle this quickly.”
Shi Tianfang nodded his head and he gestured in space with his right hand. A bloody crack appeared in space suddenly, as if space was hurt and was dripping blood.
From the bloody crack, a dark blade extended out, with a merciless killer aura.
Even Immortal Soul First Level cultivators from the Samsara Sect which were slightly weaker felt impulsive. There was an intense thirst to kill that rose from the bottom of their hearts.
As they summoned their powers, they managed to calm themselves down and dilute the killing intent that rose within them.
Shao Dongtian’s expression did not change. The East Sea Holy Man creased his brows. This blade was extremely merciless. Without even revealing its aura intentionally, it was still sufficient to allow those around who were below the Immortal Soul Stage to go maniacal. They would be engulfed by their own temptation to kill and become crazed maniacs.
On the hilt of the blade, one hand appeared. That hand belonged to a youth who wore black and had messy hair. The red light in his eyes which revealed his desire to kill and fight flashed and was extremely eye-blinding.
It was the Asura War-Blade, another magic treasure in the Mahayana realm from the Samsara Sect.
It belonged to the Path of Asura originally. The Path of the Heaven-Born had the Wheels of the Six Path, whereas the Path of Asura invested all its resources to cultivate the Asura War-Blade. This allowed the Asura War-Blade to rise to the Mahayana realm from the metaplasia realm.
But following Shi Tianfang’s complete defeat of the Path of Asura, Mo Xiuluo was held captive and the Six Paths were unified. The Asura War-Blade eventually ended in the hands of Shi Tianfang and came along with Shi Tianfang to Mount Yujing this time.
With two Immortal Soul Third Level cultivators, two magic treasures in the Mahayana realm, as well as other powerful cultivators, this lineup made Shao Dongtian, the Xuan Heaven Seal and East Sea Holy Man seem extremely shallow in terms of strength.
But Shao Dongtian did not mind this. Both he and the Xuan Heaven Seal were confident. Regardless whether it was attacking Mount Yujing or facing Lin Feng in the future, the Samsara Sect could not isolate him away. Furthermore, he had the backing of Great Zhou Empire.
Shi Tianfang also did not have the intention to attack by himself. He looked at Shao Dongtian and said, “I want Mount Yujing. You can attack the magic treasure in the destiny realm that came from the Ying Sea.”
Everyone in the outside world knew that besides the Yingzhou Celestial Mountain in the Ying Sea, the most valuable item of the Celestial Sect of Wonders was Mount Yujing and the white jade pillar. Both the Samsara Sect and East Heaven’s Gate could take one each. That’s why Shi Tianfang did not want to wait for the Mount Shu Sword Sect to arrive before attacking.
As to how the rewards should be separated, it would have to depend on their respective strengths. The Samsara Sect came with a strong lineup, revealing Shi Tianfang’s intentions to obtain something of huge worth from the Celestial Sect of Wonders.
He came here this time for Mount Yujing. If he could obtain anything else, he would be glad to take them. But his main target was Mount Yujing!
