Chapter 717 – Death Spirit Hell Array
Zhao Feng looked down at the Death Guard with mockery on his face.
The Emperor of Death had a total of four Death Spirit Lords and thirty-six Death Guards.
If this was two or three years ago, it would be a nightmare for Zhao Feng. Back then, even the lowest-ranked Death Guard was troublesome for Zhao Feng. He couldn’t even escape from a measly Death Guard, but now, this Death Guard’s eyes were filled with fear and panic as information regarding his target surfaced in his mind.
None of the thirty-six Death Guards would be his match.
The speed he displayed made this Death Guard helpless.
“There are no reinforcements nearby. I won’t be able to survive,” the Death Guard was very experienced and didn’t lose his calm.
“Demonic Bat Wing Shadows!” the Death Guard gritted his teeth as he started to burn his True Yuan and turned into a flaming bat that was dozens of meters wide. The bat’s aura was chaotic, and it sent a mental energy screech that could charge into the soul. On top of that, the bat’s speed was extremely quick; even normal Kings wouldn’t be able to dodge it.
“Hmph!” Zhao Feng snickered coldly and reached out with his hand.
A Magnificent Power appeared in the air and enveloped the bat, instantly decreasing its speed. This was the difference between those who had King Intent and those who didn’t.
A large scarlet claw descended from the skies and grabbed the bat.
“I didn’t even have the ability to fight back at all….” the heart of the Death Guard shook. He felt as if his consciousness and body were locked in the air. He realized that it wasn’t just luck that Zhao Feng could kill a Domain-level King.
“If I can’t survive, then…!” insanity born from despair appeared in the Death Guard’s eyes as his soul and True Yuan started to bloat, like air pumping into a balloon.
“Hehe, you want to self-destruct?” Zhao Feng smiled faintly as his left eye glinted. The next instant, a strong surge of Eye Intent completely froze the Death Guard’s body in mid-air.
“What…!?” the Death Guard had lost all control of his body, and he wasn’t even able to think. He had never seen someone with such strong Eye Intent apart from the Emperor of Death.
“Soul Search!” a wicked surge of soul-power came from Zhao Feng’s left eye and charged into the Death Guard’s soul.
With Zhao Feng’s current mastery over the Dao of the Soul, searching a soul was easy for him. In reality, one could use some mental energy techniques or Soul techniques even if they didn’t have an eye-bloodline. It was just that the power of the skill would become stronger if there was an eye-bloodline, while the speed of release and the usage of energy would decrease.
A breath or two later, Zhao Feng waved his hand, and a surge of Scarlet Destruction Wind Lightning turned the Death Guard’s body into ashes. The Death Guard’s soul and physical body were both completely destroyed, unlike last time where Zhao Feng was able to successfully defeat the Death Guard, but he was protected by the Token of Death and wasn’t truly killed.
“So that’s how it is….” Zhao Feng managed to obtain some information from his Soul Search, including how they tracked him.
As Zhao Feng had weakened the Death Intent to a very low degree and he had trained the Ten Thousand Divine Thoughts Technique, which sealed off the aura of his soul, the Death Guards and Death Spirit Lords found it hard to sense him. This was especially true after he had absorbed the God Tribulation Lightning and weakened the Intent of Death in his soul even further.
Unless they were very close it was unlikely they could sense Zhao Feng. The only reason they could find Zhao Feng this time was due to Emperor Mu Yun. Zhao Feng’s Void Space Eye Slash had left the aura of the Death Intent on Mu Yun’s body, and the Yin Yang Lord realized this.
“The Emperor of Death took away Emperor Mu Yun’s soul from several island zones away by using the Gaze of Death?” Zhao Feng was stunned.
Using such a forbidden technique from several island zones away would expend dozens if not hundreds of times more energy. On top of that, his target was the soul of an Emperor!
“Luckily, the Emperor of Death’s soul-power still hasn’t recovered yet,” Zhao Feng felt slightly lucky.
If Emperor Mu Yun was just a normal pirate, the Emperor of Death wouldn’t need to pay much of a price even if he used the Gaze of Death from several island zones away, and he might even have been able to come over right afterward. Of course, normal pirates wouldn’t require Zhao Feng to use the Void Space Eye Slash.
“Sky Locking Bow!”
Zhao Feng opened his God’s Spiritual Eye and scanned around the ocean while he held the bow.
Mysterious carvings appeared on the dark silver bow, and they seemed to be alive.
Zhao Feng pulled back the bowstring as his purple hair blew in the wind.
An eye-catching golden arrow flashed across the sky. In that instant, space itself seemed to be pierced through.
At the same time, the body of a Death Guard froze, and he cried out. A piercing aura that seemed to be able to pierce through anything had locked on to his soul, and even the space nearby became heavy.
A golden arrow seemed to appear out of nowhere and shot straight through his body.
“Arghh!” this Death Guard screamed as his body turned to ashes in front of the golden arrow and Scarlet Destruction Wind Lightning.
The death of two Death Guards in a row obviously raised the attention of the other Death Guards and the three Death Spirit Lords.
Aboard the Ship of Death:
“He’s found our tracks,” the Yin Yang Lord’s voice was solemn.
According to their plan, they were supposed to first keep an eye on Zhao Feng and await the Emperor of Death’s arrival. Only then would it be absolutely safe and perfect, but Zhao Feng found them much sooner than expected.
“All Death Guards, listen! Go and attack the Target of Death!” an echoing voice sounded through the Tokens of Death and spread across the limitless ocean.
Just a couple breaths later:
“Attack!” the two other Death Spirit Lords and the Death Guards received the news.
Two surges of King Intent appeared in the air, and the ghost ship’s speed started to decrease dramatically because of the pressure, as if it was in mud. At the same moment, the figures of the Death Guards one after another flew over and surrounded the ghost ship.
The speed of the higher-ranked Death Guards was close to Kings, and the three Death Spirit Lords were closing in as well.
Zhao Feng’s expression changed slightly, and he immediately spoke in a hushed tone, “Little Kun Yun, little thieving cat, skeletal Division Leader…”
If he was alone, Zhao Feng would definitely run away. No matter how strong he was, he wasn’t arrogant enough to challenge three Death Spirit Lords at the same time, not to mention the addition of Wen Luoan, who had strength comparable to a King, as well as a bunch of half-step King Death Guards.
However, today was different from the past. Zhao Feng was alone no more; he had a powerful slave and pet.
“Skeletal Division Leader, set up the array. The Death Guards also have an array,” Zhao Feng ordered.
As soon as he finished speaking:
A thick smoke covered everything within ten miles, and many pairs of red, gruesome eyes appeared. The difference between this and the array of the past was that there were also half-transparent, dark red chains of lightning within the smoke.
The Ghost Corpse Cursed Array had been strengthened in the Heaven’s Legacy City.
“Little thieving cat…” before he finished giving the orders, the little thieving cat had already appeared on his shoulder.
A faint silver-gray streak disappeared with a flash. Zhao Feng knew that the little thieving cat had its own plans and was in hiding to prepare.
At this moment, the three Death Spirit Lords led more than twenty Death Guards and closed in. All the beings within several thousand miles became dead-silent.
Zhao Feng and the ghost ship were surrounded. The three Death Spirit Lords and Wen Luoan blocked Zhao Feng off in each direction. Behind each of them were at least four or five Death Guards.
“Kekeke…. Although the Black Hell King isn’t here, it’s enough to use the Death Spirit Hell Array,” the Dark Spirit Lord couldn’t help but lick his lips.
As soon as he finished speaking, a blood-colored array flag appeared in the hands of the four. These four flags all burned with a gray flame, and the sound of ghosts screeching appeared. It was enough to make the everyone’s hair stand up.
In that instant, the four flags expanded to several hundred meters high, as if they were four massive poles.
A dark red haze filled the area within several dozen miles, and a flaming barrier could be seen at the border.
Zhao Feng and the ghost ship were now in the dimension of Hell. The Death Spirit Hell Array was more profound than the Ghost Corpse Cursed Array in some ways, and it could form a spatial domain.
“The Death Spirit Hell Domain has been formed. That brat won’t be able to escape even if he grows wings,” the Witch King was surrounded by a weird white flame, as if she was the king of ghosts.
The Yin Yang Lord, Wen Luoan, and company all revealed a happy expression. The Death Spirit Hell Array was created by the Emperor of Death himself, and it needed four Death Spirit Lords that could protect the four cores. Apart from that, there were several Death Guards on each side that supported them.
The strength of this array at its peak could even challenge Emperors, and even though Wen Luoan was replacing a Death Spirit Lord and they didn’t have the complete thirty-six Death Guards here, the power of this array was still 70% of its full strength.
“Open the killing array!” the Yin Yang Lord exclaimed.
The three Death Spirit Lords and Wen Luoan all used a special technique and thrust their palms toward the giant flags.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
Thousands and thousands of blood-colored beams started to shoot around the dimension of Hell. Each of these blood-colored beams could pierce through half-step Kings and devour their essence.
There were thousands upon thousands of them that shot through the dimension. Even Kings would be shot full of holes and turned into a puddle of water.
Everything was restricted within the dimension of Hell. The barrier around the borders was covered by a gray flame that could even burn the soul.
