The Lu Yuan Grand Sage stared at Wang Lin coldly and said, “Very good, b*stard. I change my mind. I’ll kill you and leave the other one for Yu’ao and his friend.”
He roared and came towards Wang Lin once again. While his demon soul and physical body were injured from the destructive powers, his overall powers were still exceptional. In the previous round, while Wang Lin came off better than him, he still felt immense pressure facing the Lu Yuan Grand Sage.
However, Wang Lin’s expression did not change as he continued to fight with the Lu Yuan Grand Sage.
He still found time to send Chu Yang, Yang Qing, Li Yuanfang and Luo Qingwu towards the black mountain.
The Lu Yuan Grand Sage roared even louder as he tried to head towards the mountain, but he was stopped by Wang Lin.
After the Yu’ao Dragon King and the Zu’e Grand Sage appeared, Wang Lin was no longer afraid that his juniors would be ambushed.
“The Lu Yuan only temporarily stopped his cultivation of the mountain and the black chain. Everything else is still in motion. With the passage of time, his preparations would be complete. By then, the mountain and the chain would be complete very quickly.”
Wang Lin passed the Pearl of Styx to Yang Qing and said lightly, “Do as I say and perhaps you can destroy the set-ups inside. However, be careful, because there may still be Heaven-Carrying Ants avatars up there.”
While they had yet to obtain an advantage in the fight, Wang Lin and Shi Tianhao were less worried after the Yu’ao Dragon King and the Zu’e Grand Sage appeared. The situation before them was perilous but it was not a death trap. It was a perfect chance for Yang Qing, Luo Qingwu and the more junior disciples to cultivate. Indeed, it was even better than the Primordial Magnet Power before.
Shi Tianhao, who was battling against the Yu’ao Dragon King and the Zu’e Grand Sage intensely in mid-air, smiled. He flicked with his fingers and a spot of purple light landed before Li Yuanfang.
Li Yuanfang was already prepared. He performed many quick gestures with his hands as he shot waves after waves of mana into the purple light. Immediately, the light started to expand and turned into a giant, complicated spell formation. In the center of the spell formation was a purple crown. It was Shi Tianhao’s magic treasure, the Purple Crown of Angmao. With it as the center of the spell formation, it turned into the Nine Heavens Divine Thunder Formation.
At the same time, Li Yuanfang too took out the formation map of the Nine Heavens Squall Formation and began to cast the Nine Heavens Formless Squall Formation.
One azure and one purple spell formation appeared at the same time in the void above the black mountain.
Looking at the two spell formations, the Yu’ao Dragon King and the Zu’e Grand Sage fluttered their eyes rapidly. While they could feel that Li Yuanfang was unable to manipulate and control the formations as well as Shi Tianhao did, and that it did not actually threaten them, bad memories began to surface non-stop in their minds.
Li Yuanfang stared at the black mountain underneath while he used both spell formations. He performed gestures non-stop with his two hands as he conjured up a third spell formation.
Runes began to congregate together as they turned into another mystical and powerful spell formation.
At the same time, Li Yuanfang took out a gourd and opened it. From it, a huge amount of black sand poured out.
This was the first time Li Yuanfang used a magic item to cast a spell formation after they entered the Polarity Steel Mine. Earlier, he always cast his spell with his own mana. Rarely did he treat this matter with such severity.
As the black sand entered the third spell formation Li Yuanfang casted, they began to spread and started to float in the middle of the spell formation.
12 grains of sand floated exactly in each formation. As hundreds of thousands of sands began to spread, every single one grain of black sand started to give off a dull, white light.
Li Yuanfang’s third spell formation completely unleashed its power as waves after waves of mystical energy began to spread. However, this spell formation did not have any offensive property. Instead, it combined the powers of the Nine Heavens Divine Thunder Formation and the Nine Heavens Squall Formation slowly.
While it was different from Shi Tianhao’s Infinite Thunderstorm, by combining the two different spell formations, he was still able to produce a power stronger than both combined.
This was the special move that Li Yuanfang learned after he had ascended into the Advanced Aurous Core stage and learned the Four Appearances Heaven Cleaving Script from Lin Feng. This was a special spell formation on his own creation, known as the Heluo Heavenly Gate Formation.
The Heluo Heavenly Gate Formation’s eastern side opened to reveal another spell formation, the Light Dust Spell-Manifesting Formation.
It was derived from the Celestial Sect of Wonders’ Two Elements of Creation Formation. As Li Yuanfang studied the Two Elements of Creation Formation, he combined it with his understanding of the Four Appearances Heaven Cleaving Script and came up with it. It could combine other spell formations and act as a bridge to bring them together.
The black grains of sand were the Swelling Earth that Lin Feng cultivated. As they increased, he gifted some of them to Li Yuanfang and allowed Li Yuanfang to cultivate them. It was specially used to cast the Light Dust Spell-Manifesting Formation.
Once the Light Dust Spell-Manifesting Formation activated, the powers of the Nine Heavens Divine Thunder Formation and the Nine Heavens Squall Formation combined and turned into roaring thunder which came crashing down onto the black mountain the chain of Heaven-Carrying Ants.
As Wang Lin had predicted, black shadows started to flirt over the mountaintop. They were the Heaven-Carrying Ant avatars cultivated by the Lu Yuan Grand Sage which sought to block the disciples from the Celestial Sect of Wonders from landing.
The Heaven-Carrying Ants started to group together in the void as they took the shape of the Lu Yuan. Once they took his shape, they would be able to use his Ten Thousand Mirror Appearances.
Li Yuanfang did not panic. Yang Qing, who was by his side, kept his calm too. He took out a scroll and started to wave it. In the scroll, there was an image of a blood river. The scroll began to emit dark light as the blood river on the scroll turned real. Odious, thick blood began to drip out of the scroll as they formed an actual river of blood in the real world.
After Yang Qing formed his nascent soul, the magic treasure that Lin Feng bestowed upon him was the Scroll of the Blood River, which could be used for both offense and defense just like his Four Appearances Yin-Yang Changing Spell. Furthermore, combined with Yang Qing’s cultivation of the Grand Moon Primordial Water, his control over this treasure was very good.
The blood-red river gurgled and roared and gave off a dark light. A noxious, toxic smell spread and landed on the mountaintop, immediately slowing down on the flow of demonic powers on it
When this magic treasure battled, it drew upon the power of the Blood River. As long as one maintained control over it, it would be an extremely powerful weapon.
The Lu Yuan Grand Sage was naturally infuriated. On his forehead, the mirror shone with white light as it sought to reflect the Unholy Blood River. However, at that moment, Wang Lin crashed against him once more with his Supreme Destruction Spell-infused Yama Imperial Pavilion, forcing him to delay his move.
That short delay allowed the Unholy Blood River to engulf the Heaven-Carrying Ants and pollute their demonic powers, preventing them from congregating together. On the other side, Li Yuanfang quickly triggered the powers of the spell formation. Thunder and wind came crashing down, destroying a whole bunch of Heaven-Carrying Ants.
After the defenses were broken, the disciples from the Celestial Sect of Wonders were able to land on the mountaintop.
The Lu Yuan Grand Sage was angered beyond measure. He stepped up the rate of his attacks against Wang Lin, who responded in kind. His cold gaze betrayed no panic. Instead, he stared intently at the circle of light on the Lu Yuan Grand Sage’s forehead as he pondered.
When Yang Qing and the rest landed on the mountain, Li Yuanfang immediately cast the Light Dust Spell-Manifesting Formation over the mountain’s peak. At the same time, runes made from white light appeared on the mountaintop, which brimmed with demonic powers. They were evidently races left by the Lu Yuan Grand Sage.
As Li Yuanfang moved, Yang Qing did not idle. He channeled the Grand Sun Primordial Flame into the Grand Moon Primordial Water. At the intersection where both fire and water met, both disappeared as they extinguished each other, leaving a void. The power of the void was then projected outwards, where it destroyed any trace of demonic power that it came into contact with.
The Four Appearances Yin Yang Change, the Change of Yang in Vacuum, the Yang in Yin and the Realm of Vacuum Yang.
When Yang Qing’s Realm of Vacuum Yang and Li Yuanfang’s Light Dust Spell Formation was used together, Yang Qing started to use Wang Lin’s Pearl of Styx. Together, a dull yellow light enveloped the entire mountain and the chain.
Under Yang Qing’s and Li Yuanfang’s help, the power of the Pearl of Styx eliminated all traces of the Lu Yuan Grand Sage’s power.
The Pearl of Styx had very strong foundations and while it had only recently been re-made into a magic treasure, no one dared to underestimate it.
The Lu Yuan Grand Sage did not need to attack Pearl of Styx. If he could devote some concentration to controlling the demonic powers on the mountain, then he would be able to resist it. However, as he was bogged down by Wang Lin, he could only watch helplessly as Yang Qing and company went ahead with their plan.
If his attention was diverted, then Wang Lin would be difficult to handle.
Battling till here, a sense of fear crossed the Lu Yuan Grand Sage’s heart, because he realized that while he found it harder and harder to reflect Wang Lin’s spells onto him with his Ten Thousand Mirror Appearances, Wang Lin’s attacks did not seem to grow in strength.
Such a strange thing made the Lu Yuan Grand Sage fearful of distraction. All he could now was to carefully deal with Wang Lin. Anything he wanted to do must be done after he took care of Wang Lin.
After all, Yang Qing, Chu Yang, Li Yuanfang and Luo Qingwu had low mastery. Even if they removed traces of the Lu Yuan Grand Sage’s demonic powers on the mountain, they would be unable to cultivate the mountain and the chain of Heaven-Carrying Ants. Ultimately, they still depended on Wang Lin and Shi Tianhao.
As Yang Qing and Li Yuanfang went about with what they were doing, Luo Qingwu and Chu Yang started to take care of the Heaven-Carrying Ant avatars of the Lu Yuan Grand Sage. These ants were in their Demonic Lord, Demonic Commander and Demonic General stages. Han Yang and the rest joined the brawl.
The few junior disciples gathered their focus. The Heaven-Carrying Ants that appeared before him were way stronger than the Choucheng they met in the Steel Polarity Mine.
While they needed more practice, their own safety was important too. Luo Qingwu’s expression was serious as a light flashed in her eyes. Her originally astute and bright pupils now contained elements of sharpness within.
She waved her Xuanche Sword and gusts after gusts of formless squalls, fierce and merciless, shot out. The numerous gusts of squalls collapsed non-stop on top of each other as they concentrated together tightly. Then, they turned into bright, shining Heavenly Wind Sword Radiances,
Luo Qingwu performed a sword gesture and said softly, “Strike!”
36 Heavenly Wind Sword Radiances flashed in the void and turned formless. Then, they rushed towards the Heaven-Carrying Ants that were surrounding them. All of them were immediately diced into bits. Even their dark, powerful exoskeletons were unable to resist these impossibly-sharp and formless sword radiances.
The 36 sword radiances appeared and disappeared out of existence randomly. Their movements were untraceable and they themselves were formless. However, they were both concrete, real and brimmed with an indestructible sharpness. Together, they turned into a formless sword formation as they killed any enemy that dared to venture.
This was the Luo Qingwu’s Great Four Appearances Saint-Slaying Sword’s Heavenly Wind Formless Sword.
As Luo Qingwu’s mastery increased, the power this move increased as well. Right now, the Heavenly Wind Formless Sword was formed from 36 sword radiances. Once it was pushed to its extreme, 81 swords could be obtained. They would turn into the Origin-Returning Formless Sword, which is even more powerful.
At this moment, when Luo Qingwu used her Heavenly Wind Formless Sword, not a single ant under the Demonic Lord stage could resist.
Chu Yang, who was watching by the side, sighed and said, “Studying under the Master of the Celestial Sect would bring about such achievements. Qingwu will make good use it.” He himself was no sluggard as he drew his longsword and battled against the Heaven-Carrying Ants. Suddenly, he felt a tremor in his heart.
Wang Lin, Shi Tianhao, the Lu Yuan Grand Sage and the Yu’ao Dragon King too were shocked. They looked in the same direction simultaneously and thought, “Another tear opened in this Outer Realm, where does it lead too?”
