Chapter 569 – Slaying Sovereigns One After Another
“Okay, you can be my vice-captain for the time being.”
Zhao Feng agreed. He was sympathetic toward her situation. If it weren’t for him, none of this would’ve happened to Loulan Zhishui.
Furthermore, he believed in her, so he could relax if she took care of the small matters.
There was now one vice-captain and eight sailors.
Right at this moment:
Sou! Sou! Sou!
Three more auras at the Origin Core Realm charged over. There were also peak True Lord Ranks and half-step Origin Core Realms that followed – all experts of the Eight Desolate Mountain.
“We can’t let the other two families succeed.”
The Head of the Loulan Family and the previous Family Head both started to panic and leapt toward the ship.
Facing several Sovereign auras, Zhao Feng didn’t panic. He slowly took out a black flag.
“You go inside and steer the ship toward the Thousand Flowing Islands.”
Zhao Feng ordered Loulan Zhishui to enter the ship.
He waved the black flag and summoned the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array.
Looking from afar, a thick, dense mist enveloped the ship, and no one could see what was inside.
Bam! Bam! Bam!
The first round of attacks from the Loulan Family was weakened as it entered the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array.
Zhao Feng stood in the middle of the array, safe and sound.
Even the attack of someone as strong as the previous Head of the Loulan Family had barely manage to reach Zhao Feng and the ship.
“Zhe zhe zhe… the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array has sixty peak True Lord Rank cursed ghost-corpses and has absorbed the lives of countless beasts in the Purple Saint Ruins. The power of its curse has already exceeded the original Hundred Ghost Corpse Cursed Array.”
The skeletal Division Leader’s figure also appeared on deck.
The strength of the array had surpassed their expectations, and that was mainly due to two reasons:
Firstly, the strength of the ghost-corpses had increased by refining them with resources from the ruins. Each and every one of them had reached the peak True Lord Rank.
Secondly, after sucking the blood essence and souls of countless beasts in the Purple Saint Ruins, the power of the curse managed to surpass the Forbidden Ground of a Hundred Graves. Countless True Spirit Realm beasts had died in the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array.
“What a deadly array!”
The Head of the Loulan Family, Old Huang, and company couldn’t help but exclaim. Even the combination of two Sovereigns from the Loulan Family couldn’t destroy the array.
Zhao Feng continued to wave the flag, forming black snakes from the mist that engulfed everything within a one-mile radius.
The nearby True Lord Ranks and half-step Origin Core Realms turned into a puddle of blood as they touched the mist.
There were continuous screams of agony and despair.
Everyone under the Origin Core Realm would die if they touched the mist.
After killing some experts, the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array then absorbed their hatred, increasing in strength.
“Hmph. Don’t force me to kill any more.”
Zhao Feng laughed coldly. The Ghost Corpse Cursed Array could be used both offensively and defensively.
The injured Sovereign elder with multi-colored clothes turned pale as the power of the curse eroded him. Normal Origin Core Realms would be heavily restrained by the power of the curse, and he was already injured.
The elder with multi-colored clothes staggered and fell from the sky.
The Head of the Loulan Family used a piece of an Earth-Grade weapon to protect himself as he caught the Sovereign elder whose life or death was unknown.
He raised his head toward the sky with pain, regret, and hatred.
At this moment in time, only the previous Head of the Loulan Family was fighting back against the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array, but his expression was extremely ugly.
More snakes formed and charged toward the previous Family Head, forcing him back.
“Nine Deadly Yin Bone!”
A large, sharp, dark silver bone suddenly shot out from the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array.
The Nine Deadly Yin Bone and the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array complemented one another and drove the total power to an entirely new level.
The previous Head of the Loulan Family spat out a mouthful of blood as he was sent flying. In his chest was a small, bloody hole, and he started staggering.
Even without the power of the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array assisting it, the Nine Deadly Yin Bone wasn’t something he could fight against.
“Looks like the three major families of the Eight Desolate Mountain are only so much….”
Zhao Feng laughed.
If it weren’t for Loulan Zhishui begging him, he would have taken their lives.
At this instant, the Blue Lightning Sea Sky Ship broke through the thin outer layer of the Eight Desolate Mountain and was about to enter the ocean.
Within their vision, the Eight Desolate Mountain became smaller and smaller, and eventually turned into a several-thousand-miles-wide mountain.
The moment they entered the ocean, the speed of the Blue Lightning Sea Sky Ship sped up by more than ten times.
The resistance in the air was extremely small, and everything was as light as a feather.
“Brat, don’t run~~~!”
Three more Sovereigns, who came from other families, charged out from the Eight Desolate Mountain.
The cultivation of these three Sovereigns had reached the early-stage, middle-stage, and late-stage Small Origin Core Realm. The strongest one, with the cultivation of the late-stage Small Origin Core Realm, was at least as strong as the Blue Lightning Pirate leader.
“Increase the speed.”
Zhao Feng wasn’t scared of fighting, but he focused on escaping.
Within the Blue Lightning Sea Sky Ship, Loulan Zhishui and company were raising the speed to its limit.
The Blue Lightning Sea Sky Ship was extremely fast and could reach the speeds of a normal Sovereign, but that would expend up to ten times more Primal Crystal Stones.
The three Sovereigns followed closely behind and launched a barrage of attacks.
“Master, should we take care of these three flies?”
The skeletal Division Leader was getting impatient.
“It’s best not to fight for too long. Let’s wait until we’re a bit further out.”
Zhao Feng had a calm expression.
The Eight Desolate Mountain wasn’t small; if they stayed and fought near it, more and more experts would come, on top of the already-here three Small Origin Core Realms. If a couple more came, it would be troublesome.
Furthermore, the Origin Core Realm was split into the Small Origin Core Realm and Great Origin Core Realm. If a Great Origin Core Realm came, it would be extremely dangerous.
According to what Zhao Feng knew, the battle-power of a Great Origin Core Realm was several times stronger than a Small Origin Core Realm. The difference was like the difference between a True Lord Rank and a Sovereign.
The Blue Lightning Sea Sky Ship became faster and faster, and it was now tens of thousands of miles away from the Eight Desolate Mountain.
“Where do you think you’re going~~~!?”
The three Sovereigns teamed up and unleashed a golden chain that wrapped itself around the Blue Lightning Sea Sky Ship.
The golden chain was a False Earth-Grade weapon.
If one looked at the scene from afar, they would see a dark misty ball wrapped by a golden chain.
The sailors within the Blue Lightning Sea Sky Ship panicked. Even if the ship managed to move, they would be dragging the Sovereigns with them.
Zhao Feng and the skeletal Division Leader attacked without hesitation.
The dark mist of the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array turned into black snakes that leapt toward the three Sovereigns.
“Nine Deadly Yin Bone!”
A large, dark silver spike blazed across the air.
The skeletal Division Leader’s Earth-Grade weapon shot out almost at the same time as the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array, creating a synergistic effect.
The three Sovereigns weren’t able to react in time. They had just teamed up and chained Zhao Feng’s ship, but before they were even able to rejoice, the two counterattacked.
The three Sovereigns were instantly eroded by the power of the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array as the Nine Deadly Yin Bone clashed with them.
The early-stage Small Origin Core Realm Sovereign spat out mouthfuls of blood, and part of his body was already rotting.
Before they could even react to the current onslaught:
“Earth-Grade weapon – Ice Imperial Spear!”
A blue spear started to condense in Zhao Feng’s hand.
The Ice Imperial Spear froze everything in its path.
Frost appeared on the body of the three Sovereigns.
The cold intent from the Ice Imperial Spear then proceeded to stab through the already-injured early-stage Small Origin Core Realm.
The Sovereign’s body froze, then shattered into pieces with a “crack.”
He was stabbed by the true form of the Ice Imperial Spear; it was impossible for him to not die.
The expressions of the other two Sovereigns changed drastically.
In just the blink of an eye, a Sovereign’s life was taken, and the other two were still affected by the power of the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array.
“Void Sky Yin Demonic Stab!”
At almost the same time, the second Earth-Grade weapon whistled through the air.
At this instant, the ice on the two Sovereigns’ bodies still hadn’t fully melted yet.
The Nine Deadly Yin Bone pierced through another Sovereign with the help of the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array, and it seemed to have even broken through space.
The middle-stage Small Origin Core Realm Sovereign turned into a puddle of blood.
Second Sovereign, dead.
Zhao Feng waved the black flag and used the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array to devour the blood essence and remaining souls of the two Sovereigns in order to strengthen the array.
