Chapter 846 – Helping from Afar
In the dark book room of Xie Yang Palace:
“Get ready to leave.” Senior Martial Brother Zhuge held his fan and spoke with a faint smile. “We can try our luck. The Ancient God weapon might be destined to be with one of us.”
Ancient God weapon? The geniuses and elites of Sky Suspension Palace were shocked. That was a weapon that only existed in legends, and such a thing appeared in Xie Yang Palace? This news stunned all of them, and the eyes of the silver-armored “Deng Chao” twinkled, but he wasn’t excited or surprised like everyone else.
The door to the book room opened, and those from Sky Suspension Palace walked out. The person at the very end was still the silver-armored “Junior Martial Brother Deng Chao.”
“Junior Martial Brother Deng Chao” stood in a corner that was a dead angle for vision, and a respectful expression appeared on his face as a ripple of power surged around him. Since the book room was protected by the God’s Forbidden Array, those outside the book room couldn’t sense those within the book room very well.
“Junior Martial Brother Deng Chao” reached out, and several pure white lotuses appeared in front of him. The white lotuses contained petals, seeds, and leaves, and there auras weren’t normal.
“Green Water Sky Lotus!”
“Junior Martial Brother Deng Chao” revealed a joyful expression as he quickly put the white lotuses into his interspatial ring, then quickly walked out of the dark bookroom.
Although he came out a bit later than everyone else, it didn’t raise their suspicions because Junior Martial Brother Deng Chao’s status amongst these people was relatively low.
The geniuses and elites from Sky Suspension Palace went on their way.
The leader was Xuanyuan Wen, and a piece of jade on his chest sensed something.
After the Sky Suspension Palace elites left the dark book room, the room closed, and the power of the God’s Forbidden Array quickly covered it.
Eventually, a calm male wearing a t-shirt appeared.
“Although I know how to open this place, I can’t open it alone.”
The t-shirt-wearing male took back his hand and put them both behind his back.
The three powerhouses of Sky Suspension Palace – Senior Martial Brother Zhuge, Xuanyuan Wen, and the apricot-robed female – could only open the book room when they combined their strength, and Senior Martial Brother Zhuge in particular knew the actual method to open it.
At this moment, the difference between a group and an individual could be felt. However, the male wearing the t-shirt wasn’t regretful or sad. Instead, he turned his gaze toward the purple crystal tower in the depths of Xie Yang Palace.
This purple crystal tower shot up into the sky; it was the tallest and most magnificent building in the palace, and it was located at the very center. However, the pressure radiating from this tower was terrifying and covered all the buildings in the palace. Even Kings would cough out blood if they fought back against this force.
With a flash, the t-shirt-wearing male started to head in a direction different from Sky Suspension Palace.
There was a lot of fortune in Xie Yang Palace that geniuses from other forces had found. In addition, the geniuses and elites that had entered Xie Yang Palace were just a small portion of the total amount; there was still a lot in the other areas of the Divine Illusion Dimension.
Within the six-sided Building of Refinement:
“Zhao Yufei, that Purple-Haired Demonic Duo is extremely greedy and detestable. They’ve attacked the Duanmu Family, and you’re still being tricked by him?” The male in black robes said angrily, and everyone’s eyebrows furrowed.
In the exchange a moment ago, one could obviously see that the purple-haired “Zhao Feng” had attacked Zhao Yufei with murderous intent.
“That’s not Brother Feng! What you guys are seeing is a fake Demonic Duo.” Zhao Yufei’s voice became cold.
The Duanmu Family’s lack of belief made her sad, but “reality” was right there. Not long ago, one person from the Duanmu Family was killed and two were severely injured by the “Purple-Haired Demonic Duo.”
Zhao Yufei said that they were a fake Demonic Duo, but no one believed her. If even those from the Duanmu Family didn’t believe her, then why would the other forces?
“Zezeze…. With our combined power, the world is ours!” The two purple-haired figures flashed throughout the Building of Refinement and laughed wickedly from time to time.
The strongest person was the white-mustached Little Sword Saint, but he was fully attracted by the rusty bronze sword. The Ninth Prince, Zhao Yufei, and company weren’t scared of fighting the demonic duo, but the two of them immediately left after attacking once, and no one could do anything about their physical defense or their escaping skills.
“Sky Suspension Palace is here!” Exclamations sounded from outside the Building of Refinement.
Hearing that, the imperials, the Duanmu Family, the Cao Family, and company were half-happy and half-worried.
They were happy that Sky Suspension Palace was here because they believed that they could easily deal with the demonic duo. They were worried because Sky Suspension Palace would probably take all the resources in the building for themselves.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh!
Twenty or so figures quickly approached the Building of Refinement. The group from Sky Suspension Palace had five or six Void God Realm Kings, three of them having broken through after entering the Divine Illusion Dimension or Xie Yang Palace.
“Ancient God weapon!”
The Imperial Intent of an Emperor instantly filled the area when Xuanyuan Wen walked through the door.
“Void God Realm Emperor!” The present half-step Kings and Kings were stunned as they felt their souls become suppressed.
Apart from the Little Sword Saint, no one could compare to Xuanyuan Wen.
In just one step, Xuanyuan Wen entered the depths of the crater-like furnace, and he wasn’t too far away from the Little Sword Saint.
The Little Sword Saint was only comparable or slightly stronger than Xuanyuan Wen in terms of mental energy and Intent, but in terms of youth, cultivation, and overall power, Xuanyuan Wen easily suppressed the Little Sword Saint.
Maybe because of the Emperor Intent it felt, the rusty bronze sword in front of the furnace released a brilliant beam of sword-light, and a cold Sword Intent instantly filled the Building of Refinement and caused the entire furnace to become chaotic.
Wah! Wah! Plop!
The power of the Ancient God weapon injured many geniuses, causing some of them to cough out blood and faint.
The sound of metal clashing sounded as two auras no weaker than the rusty bronze sword appeared. A sunset-red curved blade and a black, notched axe awoke from the pile of nearby tattered weapons next to the furnace.
“The aura of those two weapons are more complete and closer to Ancient God weapons.”
“Substandard God weapons!” Senior Martial Brother Zhuge’s eyes flashed.
Substandard God weapons! All of the geniuses’ hearts shook.
Even if it was broken, an Ancient God weapon was too powerful for them; they were legendary items. However, substandard God weapons were better for the present geniuses and elites since the difficulty of obtaining them would be much lower.
Hope appeared in the eyes of the three imperial princes. In the lord dynasty, substandard God weapons were a forbidden-level power that could shake and change the situation of the imperial family and the entire world of cultivation
At this moment, two relatively complete substandard God weapons appeared in front of the furnace. One was a curved blade; although the blade was bent back a bit, it wasn’t very damaged. There were a few holes on the notched axe.
Who knew what kind of battle these two substandard God weapons had gone through for them to be damaged?
Weng~ Jiang! Jiang! Jiang~~~~!
The three peerless weapons – the rusty bronze sword, the curved blade, and the notched axe – all released a powerful force that swept across the entire area. At this moment in time, terrifying sceneries appeared in the Building of Refinement. They entered the soul and had the ability to disturb reality and space itself. The blurred images summoned by the Ancient God weapon and the substandard God weapons were like the images from a Little World.
Teng! Teng! Teng!
Even some Kings were pushed back by this force.
“Anyone that isn’t a King, retreat!” Senior Martial Brother Zhuge was the first to give the order.
“Half-step Kings, retreat from the Building of Refinement for now!” The Great Gan Imperials also gave the order.
At this moment, the three peerless weapons awoke, and the aura they casually radiated could kill all lifeforms below the King level. Only Void God Realm Kings were able to withstand them.
Amongst the outsiders, Sky Suspension Palace and the imperials had the majority of Void God Realms. The Sky Suspension Palace had six Void God Realms, including a Void God Realm Emperor. The Great Gan Imperials had the three Princes, Luo Zun, the wrinkled elder, and a new King for a total of six Void God Realms as well. These two sides had the biggest advantage in the fight for the peerless weapons.
“Where did the Purple-Haired Demonic Duo go?”
The geniuses from the imperials, the Duanmu Family, Grand Duke Yuan’s Palace, and company instinctively looked around. They had to keep their guard up against the Purple-Haired Demonic Duo because they would always attack at the critical moment.
In reality, after Sky Suspension Palace appeared, the “Purple-Haired Demonic Duo” had never reappeared.
At the same time, on a big tree in a courtyard near the Building of Refinement, two purple-haired figures flashed.
“Lord Black Serpent Dragon, are you sure that Zhao Feng will participate in the fight in the Building of Refinement?”
“Zeze, if that’s the case, these humans will have a strong internal conflict….”
The two purple-haired figures spoke cunningly.
“Hmph, that Zhao Feng is already participating in it.” A cold voice that seemed to reign supreme sounded in the duo’s ears.
Already participating? Hearing that, the two purple-haired figures were puzzled. They hadn’t seen any signs of the true Purple-Haired Demonic Duo.
The two purple-haired figures didn’t dare to enter the Building of Refinement since they were waiting for the true Demonic Duo.
At a certain moment, a surge of King Intent rose from a silver-armored youth who was sitting outside the Building of Refinement. The aura of his soul seemed to become complete, and the disturbance raised the attention of other nearby half-step Kings.
“Junior Martial Brother Deng Chao became a King?”
Some geniuses and elites from Sky Suspension Palace were dazed, and the half-step Kings of other forces revealed envious looks.
The person that just broke through was the silver-armored spy in Sky Suspension Palace – Deng Chao.
“Thank you, Master. Without your help, I wouldn’t have broken through to the Void God Realm so quickly….”
Gratitude and respect appeared in Junior Martial Brother Deng Chao’s eyes.
No one realized that Junior Martial Brother Deng Chao had eaten the petals and seeds of two Green Water Sky Lotuses not long ago. If some other half-step King had two Green Water Sky Lotuses, they would have a 40-50% chance of successfully becoming a King. If there was an Emperor Intent helping them, then the chance of success would become even higher.
Junior Martial Brother Deng Chao had both of those. He came from a four-star superpower, Sky Suspension Palace, and being able to become a member of this elite group meant that his talent was comparable to the Core disciples of some three-star forces.
