Chapter 95: The Almighty Celestial Destroyer Formation
Translator: Sparrow_ Editor: Sparrow_
The Almighty Celestial Destroyer Formation- rumors say it was created by the Marquis of Xuanji, Zhu Hongwu. A compulsory course for the cultivators of the Great Zhou Empire’s Divine Martial Army, it gathers the mana of multiple low-level cultivators into a singular source of energy and infuses it into the body of the commanding general, thereby causing the commanding general’s strength to experience a qualitative leap.
The method is similar to how some sects raise Tao soldiers. They use special formations to unite the numerous sect members who practice the same Tao technique as one. As long as there were enough low cultivation level disciples, upon activation of the formation, they could take on opponents with much higher cultivation levels than them but with fewer numbers.
And after going through the Marquis of Xuanji’s improvements, the Almighty Celestial Destroyer Formation became even more domineering and profound. It could actually combine the mana of cultivators who practiced different Tao techniques to form the formation.
The Almighty Celestial Destroyer Formation was the Great Zhou Empire’s ace weapon of destruction. At the very least it was formed by 100 people, at its peak, it could link together the entire Divine Martial Army’s tens of thousands of cultivators as one.
In the battle for the elimination of Buddhism in the past, it was the entire Divine Martial Army’s tens of thousands of cultivators who formed the most powerful Almighty Celestial Destroyer Formation of all time, fighting hard for numerous days and nights and eventually blasting open the Great Thunderclap Temple’s protective formation, the Vairocana Formation.
Had it not been for the formation, the number of allied cultivators who would have died in front of the Vairocana Formation would have at least doubled.
While there were not tens of thousands of cultivators under General Xie’s leadership forming the formation and providing mana to him, but the power of 3000 people was still sufficient to boost General Xie’s strength to an unimaginable degree.
Even if they were all at Qi cultivation stage, 3000 cultivators by themselves were a powerful force. And now they were focusing their mana together. Not to mention that amongst them there were dozens of foundation establishment stage cultivators coordinating and commanding as well.
Thus upon seeing General Xie lay out the Almighty Celestial Destroyer Formation, Lin Feng dashed backwards without hesitation and without looking back for a moment.
No shit, with 3000 people, even if they lined up and took turns punching him he’d still be flat as a pancake after he finished healing. Not to mention the power of 3000 people focused on one attack. Furthermore, there was General Xie, an Aurous Core Stage cultivator leading the group. Only an idiot would fight against him.
“You lunatic, you couldn’t deal with me individually so you brought your men to gang up on me.”. Lin Feng was extremely irritated: “If you want to gang up on me then whatever, but to bring 3000 people to gang up on me alone out of the blue, could you be even more shameless?”.
What made Lin Feng even more anxious was that the Almighty Celestial Destroyer Formation had actually sealed the surrounding space. He was unable to use the Black Cloud Flag’s spatial shifting ability to leave the place. With that, he could be considered to have been trapped in a dead alley.
Seeing as Lin Feng had turned into a streak of black light and was looking to escape, General Xie was not in a hurry. The blade of his sword slowly pointed towards the lone desert mountain that the members of the Covenant of Liefeng occupied. He laughed saying: “Nobody can escape, you all have to die.”.
Where his sword pointed to, endless killing intent and hostility gathered. The miasma fog above the lone mountain was already scattered clean, revealing the dark and gloomy sky. Dark clouds covered the sky, weighing down on people making it difficult to breathe.
The movement created by the Almighty Celestial Destroyer Formation naturally also startled the members of the Covenant of Liefeng on the lone mountain. Facing the threat of the Zhou army, everybody’s hearts were heavy.
Lin Feng controlled the Black Cloud Flag, flying back to the lone mountain and silently hiding inside.
“Why did you return back?”. Dao Zhiqiang asked in puzzlement.
In the battle against General Xie before, Lin Feng used the Black Cloud Flag to cut off Dao Zhiqiang and Wang Lin’s perception of the outside world. So they were unaware what had just happened.
Upon hearing Dao Zhiqiang’s question, naturally, Lin Feng wouldn’t have told him the truth that if it were not for the fact that he ran fast, he would have been locked onto by the Almighty Celestial Destroyer Formation’s energy flow. Upon which, he wouldn’t have been able to run if he wanted to and could only wait for death.
On the contrary, under such circumstances, Lin Feng was even calmer and more composed: “Why didn’t you report the intel here back to General Xie before? The reason I came back is the same as yours.”.
Dao Zhiqiang nodded his head and then said with worry: “The 3000 people of the entire forward brigade left camp are all here and have laid down the Almighty Celestial Destroyer Formation. It’s also General Xie who is controlling it, they could even fight a Nascent Soul Stage cultivator.”.
Lin Feng fully agreed in his heart, but on the surface, he just smiled indifferently and appeared enigmatic.
“God damn it, even if I fed all 24 sariras to the Demon Avatar it probably still wouldn’t work. The enemy isn’t using simple human wave tactics, it truly is a qualitative change induced from quantitative change.”.
While thinking, Lin Feng entered into the mountain. He evaded the Covenant of Liefeng cultivators who were moving in and out in haste, passing straight through the village towards where Kang Nanhua was underground.
He remembered that Kang Nanhua said before that he laid down the Flowing Sand of the Ganges Formation here. Even though he did not know its exact power, judging by Kang Nanhua’s tone of voice, it was definitely a large scale high-level formation.
Lin Feng entered into the hole but saw that there were already a couple of people standing inside. Hearing movement they all turned their heads around.
The person at the front had a beautiful appearance. She wore a body of red clothes, her crimson hair like fire and two fine eyebrows like two killing swords. Glaring with a pair of large beautiful eyes, standing before was Yue Hongyan.
Lin Feng’s eyes flashed. Beside Yue Hongyan, a black-clothed man with a long scar on his face happened to be an old acquaintance. It was precisely that Foundation Establishment stage cultivator of the Covenant of Liefeng who kidnapped Zhu Yi the other day in Tianjing City.
Upon seeing Lin Feng, the black-clothed man instantly furrowed his brow, even the scar on his face pulsated: “What the hell are the people outside doing?”.
Yue Hongyan released a low humph: “Cut the crap, take him down first!”. As she spoke, the six foot black light halberd was already raised in her hand.
At that moment Kang Nanhua said: “Hongyan, Little Hei, the both of you stop.”.
Yue Hongyan didn’t turn her head, she still stared straight at Lin Feng and opened her mouth shouting: “Master Kang!”.
Kang Nanhua said: “This Taoist means no ill will, it’s also all thanks to him that my injury was able to be fully healed.”.
Hearing this, Yuen Hongyan and the Covenant of Liefeng cultivators present were all stunned. Their gaze traveled back and forth between Lin Feng and Kang Nanhua in surprise.
That black-clothed man couldn’t hold back saying: “But the Divine Martial Army outside?”.
“A wooden sword might have fallen in the hands of the Zhou army.”. Kang Nanhua released a low sigh. Afterwards, he looked towards Lin Feng: “If he wanted to do you guys harm, why would he help me heal my injury? Not to mention, his strength is greater than mine, you guys are no match for him.”.
“You guys all already know about the situation outside?”. Lin Feng coughed dryly. Unless he used the Demon Avatar, he didn’t have the confidence to defeat Kang Nanhua.
Kang Nanhua nodded his head, his expression solemn: “An Aurous Core Stage cultivator leading a whole armada of 3000 people. They’ve already formed the Almighty Celestial Destroyer Formation.”.
He turned his head looking towards Yue Hongyan and company: “The Almighty Celestial Destroyer Formation has sealed the surrounding boundary space. We can’t go out, we can only fight and make plans of retreating from here after repelling the enemy.”.
Yue Hongyan and the cultivators of the Covenant of Liefeng all nodded their heads with grim faces. Yue Hongyan turned around and gave some instructions to the of Covenant of Liefeng leading figures behind her. They all nodded their heads in compliance and withdrew from the tunnel together.
They were going to arrange for shelter for the mortal relatives in the village and direct the members with fighting ability to make preparations for the final resistance.
Yue Hongyan looked towards Lin Feng, she raised her crimson red eyebrows: “Why did you leave and then return? Could it be that you can’t deal with the Divine Martial Army outside and also needed to take shelter in Master Kang’s Flowing Sand of the Ganges Formation?”
In his heart, Lin Feng said, “You’re right doll.”, but on the surface, he naturally wouldn’t admit to it.
He didn’t speak and only chuckled. He then turned his face away, looking like he couldn’t be bothered to answer Yue Hongyan’s question.
Yue Hongyan slightly furrowed her brow, the remaining few Covenant of Liefeng cultivators also revealed expressions of discontent.
That black-clothed man blocked in front of them and whispered: “Master Kang will handle everything.”. Yue Hongyan turned her head glancing at Kang Nanhua and nodded her head not saying anything.
Right at that moment, General Xie’s voice traveled over from outside the mountain. His voice was calm and cold: “It’s practically like a nest of ants hiding in an ant nest. Just looking at it makes me sick, to hell with the lot of you.”.
A wave of bloody and wild mana fluctuations started vibrating. It was precisely the conception of the power of the Immemorial God Slayer Sect’s characteristical path of murder, but the power was countless times greater than when he was fighting Lin Feng before.
Outside of the lone mountain, the Divine Martial Army of 3000 had formed the battle formation and stood menacingly on the desert land in front of the lone mountain. Near endless mana was poured into General Xie, who stood at the front of the battle formation radiating the killing intent of the Divine Martial Army straight to the skies.
The Almighty Celestial Destroyer Formation was like a peerless sword of evil, slowly coming out of the scabbard wanting to slaughter all of the mankind and dye the world in blood.
And General Xie, was the sharpest point of this evil sword.
His sword pointed at the sky and a change instantly occurred to the overcast sky.
The dark clouds covering the sky started spinning, slowly forming a massive vortex. At the eye of the vortex, an ominous light flashed in all directions. The massive tip of a sword which was as pitch-black as ink slowly extended out from the eye of the dark cloud vortex.
The sword tip was virtually half the size of the peak of the lone mountain. It harbored the brutal conception of the power of great terror and great slaughter. A regular mortal would have instantly died upon coming in contact with just the terrifying bloody aura.
The tip of the sword pointed straight at the lone mountain, poised to strike!
