Chapter 984: Cultivation Slaves?
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations
Suddenly, a whole bunch of demons appeared in the distance. As they were unable to approach the gate to the Starry Sea, they decided to attack the Small Divine Lands World.
An expression finally crossed Wang Lin’s Great Satanic Avatar’s face; it was one of utter coldness as he frowned slightly. Black light started to appear around his body.
His avatar was not very powerful by itself. However, as he cultivated numerous Heaven-Carrying Ants into it, it could split itself into thousands of Heaven-Carrying Ants, which could also re-form into his true form. The possibilities were immense.
A bunch of Heaven-Carrying Ants separated from his main body. While it would weaken the power of the Great Satanic Avatar, it could be used to stop the demons from approaching the Small Divine Lands World.
“Don’t worry, Third Junior,” said Zhu Yi’s Great Sun Avatar without turning his head around. He continued to focus on solidifying the passageway into the Small Divine Lands World.
Wang Lin’s gaze flashed as he realized that Yue Hongyan and Luo Qingwu were already battling with the demons.
When Lin Feng started fighting with the Sirius Grand Sage and the rest, Li Yuanfang had already casted numerous spell formations near the entrance to the Small Divine Lands World. With these formations, he waited for intruders.
Faced with the enemies, Li Yuanfang swept them with his gaze as he said, “There’s one Undying Demon Soul First Level Six-Horned Divine Monkey, one Undying Demon Soul Second Level wolf and the rest are all in their Demonic Lord Stage.”
He gently brought his palms together as he said in a low voice, “Open!”
Three, gigantic spell formations started to shine near the entrance of the Small Divine Lands World brightly. Stacked together, they appeared to be a three-storied pagoda.
The spell formation at the very top appeared transparent. One could hear the howls of wind from it. it was the Nine Heavens Squall Formation, which broke through the void to summon the powers of the squalls from the Nine Heavens.
The middle layer was a mystic, complicated spell formation. It appeared to be formed from black, sandy granite. However, a layer of white light shone over it. It was Li Yuanfang’s Light Dust Spell-Manifesting Formation, formed from opening the East Gate of his Heluo Heavenly Gate Formation.
The bottom-most layer was one formed from flashing, black light. it looked ordinary and unremarkable. However, one could hear the howls of wind from it.
This was the Black Nightmare Saint-Trapping Formation, formed from opening the West Gate of his Heluo Heavenly Gate Formation.
Li Yuanfang extended his palms forward and the three spell formations congregated together and merged.
The Nine Heaven Squall Formation on top sunk and the Light Dust Spell-Manifesting Formation gradually disappeared. However, one could still hear the howls of wind.
Right after that, the Light Dust Spell-Manifesting Formation, which swallowed the Nine Heavens Squall Formation, sunk into the Black Nightmare Saint-Trapping Formation at the very bottom. Nothing happened afterwards. The Black Nightmare Saint-Trapping Formation was still quiet, but it became evidently more dangerous.
This scene alone made the many approaching demons extremely fearful. With their mastery, even if they were not good at discerning spell formations, they still could tell that it was dangerous.
Casting a spell formation required extreme precision. Once a spell formation was disturbed, one’s effort might be wasted.
A single extra talisman, a single extra formation pattern or one fewer formation pattern could result in a chaotic mess.
However, Li Yuanfang’s Black Nightmare Saint-Trapping Formation now contained another, extremely complicated spell formation: The Light Dust Spell-Manifesting Formation.
What made the rest even more shocked was the fact that the Light Dust Spell-Manifesting Formation had a formation in it too, the Nine Heavens Squall Formation.
The three formations stacked on top of each other. Not only did they interfere in each other’s workings, they further strengthened each other and were even more terrifying.
Even demons like the Six-Horned Grand Sage frowned when he saw this.
It was extremely difficult to cast a spell formation as there were many restrictions and rules. One needed to expend a huge amount of time and resources. However, the power of a spell formation could not be underestimated when it was properly used.
Hence, in the face of Li Yuanfang’s three spell formations, no one knew what powers were within.
Even Zhu Yi’s Great Sun Avatar nodded his head when he saw it. “When Sixth Junior ascended into the Intermediate Nascent Soul stage, his powers increased too.”
From a certain perspective, Martial Way cultivators and spell formation cultivators were each other’s worst enemies as they could effectively each other.
If the distance was close enough, Martial Way cultivators would be able to kill spell formation cultivators easily, especially if the latter did not have a protective treasure along with him.
Hence, when Li Yuanfang first joined the sect as a Foundation Establishment Stage cultivator, Lin Feng gave him an Aurous Core Stage magic item, the Xuanjing Silk Belt, to protect himself from Martial Way cultivators.
After Li Yuanfang formed his aurous core, Lin Feng gave him the Nascent Soul Stage magic item, the Azure Heavens Thunder Bead to compensate for his lack of offensive prowess.
Now, Li Yuanfang did not need to use these items anymore. He gave both to his disciple, Tan Yunqing.
Ultimately, however, if Li Yuanfang faced off against powerful Martial Way cultivators or demons, he still had to be careful. If he did not have adequate time to cast his spell formations, he might face unimaginable consequences if he was ambushed.
However, conversely, as long as spell formation cultivators did enough preparation, they would be able to wear down a Martial Way cultivator of the same level. As Martial Way cultivators needed to approach their targets to attack, this was extremely disadvantageous when fighting against spell formation cultivators.
For example, right now, as Li Yuanfang had done the necessary preparations, even the Undying Demon Soul Second Level Crimson Grand Sage found it difficult to deal with him.
As the Six-Horned Divine Monkeys were extremely sensitive to danger, he could feel that in the seemingly calm Black Nightmare Saint-Trapping Formation, there was a magic treasure within. It complemented the power of the spell formation, making it even more fearsome.
Though, in reality, the Crimson Grand Sage wasn’t scared at all. After all, the disparity in their powers was too wide. His main concern was Zhu Yi’s Great Sun Avatar.
Zhu Yi’s Great Sun Avatar appeared extremely arrogant. Even in the presence of the many other demons, he did not seem to care. Instead, he focused on stabilizing the Small Divine Lands World.
Now, its entrance was covered by the Black Nightmare Saint-Trapping Formation and he could not see what was going on before that. Who knew if Zhu Yi’s Great Sun Avatar was hiding in the spell formation, preparing to strike at any time?
They were like a last resort that had to be utilized. His leader was battling intensely with Wang Lin and one could not determine the victor immediately. They needed to break the stalemate.
The Six-Horned Divine Monkey Demonic Lord that Shi Tianhao had killed was a blood relative of the Crimson Grand Sage.
The Crimson Grand Sage roared and charged into the Black Nightmare Saint-Trapping Formation. At the same time, the leader of the Blood-Eyed Black Wolf, the Blood Mane Grand Sage, became cloaked with a churning fog of blood as he rushed into the spell formation as well.
The Six-Horned Divine Monkeys and the Blood-Eye Black Wolves followed their leaders. The Golden-Feathered Great Rocs were not led by a Demonic Saint Stage demon, but they too turned into golden light as they charged into the formation too.
The moment they entered the spell formation, the demons there were all hit by a wave of giddiness. They almost lost their senses and as they could only see pitch darkness, hear nothing and smell nothing. Even their brains appeared to be functioning slower.
In reality, gusts of freezing-cold squalls were coming straight for them!
While the Crimson Grand Sage and the Blood Mane Grand Sage were affected, their mastery were much higher. They roared in anger as they swatted away the black tornadoes around them. They also helped members of their respective tribes block off the Nine Heavens Formless Squalls.
The demons calmed themselves down as they continued charging into the spell formation. The Crimson Grand Sage was expressionless as he revealed his true form. He reached out with his claw as he grabbed one of his claws and snapped it off.
“Roar!” the Crimson Grand Sage used his powers to turn the broken horn into waves of golden light. Then, as it shone radiantly in the Black Nightmare Saint-Trapping Formation, the golden light intersected with the ferocious, black wind.
The Crimson Grand Sage’s eyes began to shine with light too as he illuminated the void before him with his gaze. Li Yuanfang’s spell formation started to shake as well.
Then, two figures came charging out from Li Yuanfang’s spell formation, coming straight at the demons. They were Yue Hongyan and Luo Qingwu.
Yue Hongyan’s Seven Merciless Stars Armor shone with a purple light. The wild, deadly killing intent burst forth without any restraint and then concentrated onto the Royal Extermination Pole-Ax in her hands.
The green and black pole-ax brimmed with a destructive power that seemed capable of reducing everything to the ashes. Combined with the murderous intent of the Seven Merciless Stars Armor, they formed a power that seemed capable of rivalling an army alone, striking cold terror into the hearts of the demons.
At this moment, stars started to shine in the Ancient Desolate Galaxy as they further reinforced the powers of these two magic treasures. Enveloping Yue Hongyan, she used the Heaven-Crossing Squall of her Divine Spears of the Four Appearances Heavenly Spell. Every demon present, except the Crimson Grand Sage and the Blood Mane Grand Sage, was either killed upon contact or wounded.
The Ancient Desolate Galaxy strengthened Yue Hongyan more than they did for the demons.
On the other side, Luo Qingwu waved her black, icy Xuanche Sword in her jade-white hands. As she wielded her sword, one could hear landslide and tsunamis in the void. Endless amount of black oceans appeared in front of the demons. Black waves crashed towards the demons.
The water from the ocean was black and chilling to the bones. It appeared to be devouring every single source of light and was extremely dark, cold and brimmed with Yin energy. It seemed similar from the Yin-Yang Ocean underneath Mount Yujing, but it was not from there. Instead, it was formed from Luo Qingwu’s own mana.
With her Xuanche Sword, the crashing, black waves concentrated together and the cold, dark and Yin sweater turned into innumerable, large, black-colored ice swords. The tip of the swords was as big as the peak of a small mountain as it gave off a bone-chilling sword Qi. These swords came slashing towards the demons.
This was the Nine Yin Vast Ocean Sword, one of the techniques from Luo Qingwu’s Great Four Appearances Saint-Slaying Sword. A single sword radiance contained the power of an entire, ice-cold ocean. Due her unique status, this attack was more powerful than her Heavenly Wind Formless Sword.
As he watched his tribesmen die under the hands of Yue Hongyan and Luo Qingwu, the Blood Mane Grand Sage roared and blood-red light churned around him. he charged towards them. His scarlet eyes had shadows of greed and rage in them as he stared at the two women and said, “The two of you are excellent cultivation slaves (Translator’s Note: Cultivation slaves are usually females who exist to enhance the Yin cultivation of male cultivators, often through sexual intercourse.)
He roared once more and said, “My children, get them! Every one of you shall have a piece of them!”
The wild howls of the wolves could be heard everywhere. Blood-red waves appeared around every single wolf as they descended upon Yue Hongyan and Luo Qingwu.
