Chapter 843 – Resolving the Mark
This was the first time Zhao Feng had used the Eye of Heaven in several years. The reason he did so now wasn’t to show off his strength to the other forces or challenge the unrivalled Black Destruction Serpent Dragon. He only had one goal, and that was to oversee the situation of the entire Xie Yang Palace.
The appearance of the fake Purple-Haired Demonic Duo made the other forces shun him, and the Black Serpent Dragon outside Xie Yang Palace secretly controlling people made Zhao Feng feel like he was losing control of the situation.
They all had an enemy right in front of them, but fortune existed alongside danger. He didn’t want to lose control right now. With the Eye of Heaven, Zhao Feng could oversee the entire Xie Yang Palace and control the changing tide.
As he guessed, the fake Purple-Haired Demonic Duo was being controlled by the Black Destruction Serpent Dragon. If they didn’t have the pointers given by the Black Destruction Serpent Dragon, how was the fake Purple-Haired Demonic Duo able to appear at the critical moment and escape successfully every time? Apart from Zhao Feng’s Eye of Heaven, only the Black Serpent Dragon had such ability.
The Black Serpent Dragon could monitor the situation within Xie Yang Palace through the Mark of Destruction in everyone’s body. The difference from Zhao Feng was that the Black Serpent Dragon couldn’t join in personally at the moment, so it needed the Blue Serpent King and Green Beady Eyes to do its bidding.
Roar~~ Wu~~~ Bam! Boom!
The Black Destruction Serpent Dragon’s furious attacks outside Xie Yang Palace increased in frequency.
“The Black Destruction Serpent Dragon should be able to charge in after a bit more than twenty days….” Zhao Feng’s eyes twinkled.
The Black Serpent Dragon probably wanted these outsiders to act as the front line. After all, it was still extremely wary of the Ancient God Xie Yang, and Xie Yang Palace probably still had a lot of hidden dangers.
“What happened just now?” In the underground cellar, Nan Gongsheng looked at Zhao Feng. At this moment, he discovered that Zhao Feng had a confident expression, as if he could control the entire palace’s situation. It wasn’t hard for Nan Gongsheng to guess that what happened just now was related to Zhao Feng.
“We should get rid of some little trouble before we act,” Zhao Feng smiled and said.
“You mean… the Mark of Destruction?” Nan Gongsheng immediately understood.
Zhao Feng nodded his head and sat down.
Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng started to try to get rid of the Mark of Destruction.
“This is just a simplified version of the actual Mark of Destruction, and it only contains a wisp of aura from the Destruction Dragon bloodline. Nan Gongsheng, try using your spatial abilities and the Evil God Crystal to devour it….” Zhao Feng said as he tried to resolve the Mark of Destruction.
The Mark of Destruction contained the powerful laws of Destruction, but luckily, Zhao Feng knew a bit about those from cultivating Destruction Wind Lightning in his previous life. The laws of Destruction from the Destruction Dragon Race concerned the origin of the world itself.
Zhao Feng circulated his Water of Wind Lightning and took out a Green Water Sky Lotus, which had purification abilities. In the depths of his body, wisps of scarlet-black aura had merged into his flesh and bones, and it was even eroding his soul.
Zhao Feng tried to move the scarlet-black aura, but nothing happened.
Outside Xie Yang Palace:
“Ignorant brat! Even though it’s just a simplified version of the Mark of Destruction, anyone weaker than a Demigod can’t do anything to get rid of it.” The Black Serpent Dragon paused his attacks for a moment as mockery appeared on its face. However, its expression changed dramatically the next moment.
“How is that possible…!?” The Black Destruction Serpent Dragon suddenly felt one of his marks was becoming weaker – the mark from one of the Purple-Haired Demonic Duo, Zhao Feng.
Several hundred wisps of God Tribulation Lightning in Zhao Feng’s purple Soul Sea started to glow and radiate a power that could scare both gods and ghosts alike. The Water of Wind Lightning merged into the God Tribulation Lightning and started to cleanse and purify the scarlet-black aura.
“Luckily, I’ve recovered part of my Emperor Intent….”
Zhao Feng could now control part of the God Tribulation Lightning in his body, and with his previous life’s experience, he used it just like how a fish swam in the ocean.
The lightning could easily merge into his flesh, body, and even his bloodline, so it was relatively easy for it to cleanse him. However, the power of the Mark of Destruction concerned the most original laws of Destruction, so even the God Tribulation Lightning couldn’t completely gain an advantage.
Zhao Feng’s main advantage was that this was his body while the Mark of Destruction would have no reinforcements.
An hour later, Zhao Feng managed to force the Mark of Destruction into a corner, and he used the Water of Wind Lightning – which had the God Tribulation Lightning merged into it – to seal it and slowly grind it down.
At this point, he could now also help Nan Gongsheng handle his Mark of Destruction.
Since Nan Gongsheng was extremely talented in spatial laws and had the power of the Evil God Crystal as well, he could actually threaten the Mark of Destruction to a certain degree. However, he didn’t have the God’s Spiritual Eye, so he couldn’t clearly sense where the Mark of Destruction in his body was.
One of Zhao Feng’s hands landed on Nan Gongsheng’s shoulder, and his senses instantly changed. He could now feel the Mark of Destruction’s aura very clearly.
“This type of inspection…” Nan Gongsheng was stunned.
Zhao Feng had shared the senses of his God’s Spiritual Eye with Nan Gongsheng. Nan Gongsheng’s blurry senses toward the Mark of Destruction instantly became hundreds of times clearer.
He immediately circulated a layer of wicked purple-and-silver light that quickly enveloped the scarlet-black aura and started to devour it.
The Evil God Crystal in Nan Gongsheng’s body released a wicked purple glow, and the powerful aura radiating from it made even Zhao Feng find it hard to breathe.
As expected of a true God Crystal, Zhao Feng thought.
Most of the God Crystals that appeared in the world were substandard God Crystals, such as the ones used to operate the Spiritual Zone Teleportation Arrays. That said, substandard God Crystals already contained almost infinite power. Zhao Feng’s flaming chariot had a substandard God Crystal, which supplied it with almost infinite energy.
On the other hand, Nan Gongsheng obtained the Evil God Crystal, which was even more unique. It was a true God Crystal at the very least, and it was apparently formed from the God’s power of an Evil God.
Nan Gongsheng managed to prevent the aura of the Mark of Destruction from seeping out and started to slowly grind it. However, both Zhao Feng and Nan Gongsheng were unable to get rid of their marks within a short amount of time.
“I need around a day while Nan Gongsheng needs two,” Zhao Feng estimated.
While he was resolving the Marks of Destruction, Zhao Feng was also paying attention to what was happening within Xie Yang Palace.
In front of the six-sided metallic Building of Refinement, the forces led by the imperials and Sky Sword Pavilion were trying to break through the God’s Forbidden Array.
All the places where they had met fortune earlier didn’t even have the God’s Forbidden Array around them since they were all just general items. However, the Building of Refinement was different since it had the God’s Forbidden Array protecting it.
“Everyone, relax. The God’s Forbidden Array within the palace don’t have much of a counterattacking ability since it’s mainly here to protect the building itself,” an imperial array master said.
Apart from the imperials and Sky Sword Pavilion, there was also the Duanmu Family, the Cao Family, Grand Duke Yuan’s Palace, and various other forces gathered in front of the Building of Refinement. These groups all had at least one Void God Realm King.
Most of the geniuses and elites that had entered Xie Yang Palace had more or less acquired fortune. As of right now, every member had battle-power comparable to a quasi-King or a true King, so they weren’t to be underestimated.
“I think that we should use an array to break through the array. We can build an array that acts opposite to this array and use it to widen the flaw,” the array master smiled and said.
The forces all sent out their array masters to construct an array in front of the Building of Refinement. Half a day later, a complex and condensed array was successfully built in front of the Building of Refinement.
Weng~ Bo~ Bo~
A dark red whirlpool glowed around the Building of Refinement, and the nearby experts all felt a burning sensation. Their mouths became dry, and they were like ants running around on a hot pan. If Void God Realm Kings stayed here for too long, they might be roasted.
Luckily, the flaw in front of the Building of Refinement was expanding, and the groups took turns in order to sustain the array.
“We don’t even need a full day to enter the Building of Refinement. If I’m correct, this place should be where the weapons and treasures are repaired in Xie Yang Palace,” the array master said with a smile.
In a garden far away, two purple-haired figures merged into the trees and watched every movement at the Building of Refinement.
“We’ll choose a good chance to act after the Building of Refinement opens.” Expectation appeared on the Blue Serpent King Wei Jing’s face.
The Building of Refinement hadn’t opened yet, but the aura of treasures could already be felt. The Black Serpent Dragon had said that there might be a valuable treasure contained within the Building of Refinement.
At the same time, in front of a dark wooden building, the geniuses and elites from Sky Suspension Palace led by Xuanyuan Wen and the other two Kings stood in front of a door.
“Heaven’s Legacy Mystic Technique… open!” Senior Martial Brother Zhuge waved his hand, and a wave of dark green Water runes merged into the door and gave off a golden light.
Xuanyuan Wen and the female in apricot robes both put a hand on Senior Martial Brother Zhuge’s shoulder.
The door to the dark building was pushed open by Senior Martial Brother Zhuge, and everyone saw a bunch of old books giving off a faint glow of light. These old books floated in the building like stars in space. There were at least a couple dozen thousand books.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
Those from Sky Suspension Palace quickly entered the dark room.
Senior Martial Brother Zhuge then carefully closed the door to the book room. However, no one realized that, when the last half-step King stepped into the building, a transparent purple Eye of Heaven appeared in the sky above the book room. A weird light glittered in the Eye of Heaven as it disappeared from the sky.
Within the underground cellar:
“I’ve succeeded in resolving it.” Zhao Feng suddenly opened his eyes. The scarlet-black aura of the Mark of Destruction in his body had disappeared.
The God Tribulation Lightning was indeed worthy of being Zhao Feng’s killing move; it even managed to get rid of the simplified Mark of Destruction.
For the next half a day, Zhao Feng helped Nan Gongsheng resolve the Mark of Destruction in his body.
An hour later, in front of the Building of Refinement:
The dark red glow on the surface of the six-sided tower dimmed, especially near the area at the front entrance.
The black metallic door was slowly pushed open by an invisible force, and the five-colored array in front of the Building of Refinement shattered.
At the moment the metallic door opened, a terrifying wave of hot air shot out. One could see a half-transparent dark red wind blow across some experts near the doorway.
Screams sounded in front of the Building of Refinement. Some geniuses and elites that didn’t react in time were incinerated.
