Chapter 979 – Turning the Tide
“Defend with full power!” Old Ying urgently ordered.
The other members stood within Shen Jizi’s defensive array and started to defend.
Luckily, the beast horde still listened to the last order given by Zhao Feng and guarded the city. When the combined forces of the three princes attacked, they still fought back. However, without the direction of a beast tamer, their battle-power was heavily reduced.
Since the beasts weren’t controlled by a beast tamer, they rushed out of the defensive array.
“Old Ying, these beasts aren’t under our control.” Shi Yulei felt helpless when he saw this.
Luckily, the beasts learned to stay within the defensive array after losing several times.
“Defend as long as we can.” Old Ying’s tone was decisive.
“Looks like Zhao Feng really is trying to break through.” The Second Prince, who wasn’t far away from the city, scratched his chin. The scenery of breaking through could be faked, so it could’ve been a trick to make the enemy appear.
“All of you can attack now.” The Second Prince sent the order down after confirming Zhao Feng was truly in seclusion.
“Attack!” The Twelfth Prince was very excited.
Almost thirty experts from the three princes’ teams flew into the air and charged toward the Ninth Prince’s city.
“Brother Second Prince, don’t forget about the blood pact we made.” The Fifth Prince had a grim expression.
Since only one prince could enter at a time after taking over a Heaven’s Legacy City, and there was only one day left in the second stage, it was impossible for the three princes to take turns in the Heaven’s Legacy City. Therefore, the three of them had signed a blood pact.
The blood pact was something created by the Heaven’s Legacy Race, and it was extremely rare. They would only be used under extreme circumstances.
The contents of the blood pact were as follows: after the Second Prince entered the Heaven’s Legacy City, he must buy everything the other princes and their subordinates wanted without embezzling anything.
“Of course.” The Second Prince had a calm expression. This was their final chance. Everything could be done as long as he was able to enter the Heaven’s Legacy City.
“Keep an eye on Brother Seventh Prince as well. Once his team comes, use your draconic providence to stall them.” The Second Prince’s expression remained the same as he messaged the other two princes.
The Seventh Prince’s team huddled around in a small forest about a hundred miles away from the Heaven’s Legacy City.
“We don’t have the ability to take down a city by ourselves. We can only wait until the three princes and the Ninth Prince injure each other before we can take action,” the scholar analyzed.
Sacred Lord Dark Soul’s body and soul had been heavily injured by Zhao Feng. While it was easy to recover the injuries to his Sacred Body, the damage caused by the God Tribulation Lightning to his soul wasn’t. On top of that, Grandmaster Zhang Yi’s beasts had been heavily damaged as well.
“If Zhao Feng doesn’t come out of seclusion, then the three princes should be able to break through the city very easily. What will we do then?” Jiang Hao asked.
While the individual strength of the three princes’ teams was weak, they had the advantage in numbers. If the Seventh Prince fought against the three princes, the three princes had a higher chance of winning.
The other members also looked at the scholar. They had this question as well.
“If you were in Zhao Feng’s place, would you choose to break through right now?” the scholar asked with a meaningful gaze.
Everyone went silent. As long as they weren’t an idiot, no one would choose to break through at such a critical moment.
“Zhao Feng shouldn’t need very long to break through,” Sacred Lord Sharp Edge said.
One could tell how strong Zhao Feng’s foundation was from his display of strength earlier. Sacred Lord Sharp Edge was even suspicious that Zhao Feng was purposely suppressing his cultivation. In that situation, he wouldn’t need very long at all, especially if he was experienced.
“Then we still have hope,” Lu Tianqi immediately said. As long as the Ninth Prince fought against the three princes with full power, there was the possibility of both sides being heavily injured.
Elsewhere, after the Ninth Prince took over a city, the pressure on the Eighth Prince instantly decreased.
“He’s finally going to become an Emperor now.” Yu Tianhao felt the bloodline within his body tremble after thinking about this. Although he knew that Zhao Feng was already incredible strong even as a King, Yu Tianhao wished for Zhao Feng to be at the same cultivation as himself when they fought.
“Hehe, I think that Zhao Feng is purposely choosing to break through at this moment. He probably wants to test out what he obtained in the Heaven’s Legacy City.” Sacred Lord Hundred Refined smiled faintly. He didn’t believe Zhao Feng would be so dumb as to break through at this instant without some kind of reassurance.
In the metallic room beneath the whirlpool of Wind Lightning, although Zhao Feng was indeed breaking through, he had split part of his consciousness to spectate the battle outside the city wall while another part of his energy was refining the Sky Locking Bow.
Zhao Feng’s heart moved. At this instant, there was a hidden connection between Zhao Feng’s Soul Intent and the Sky Locking Bow.
At the same time, the whirlpool of Wind Lightning above Zhao Feng’s room quickly started to fade away. With Zhao Feng’s strong foundation and many precious resources, it was extremely easy for him to become an Emperor.
The three different areas of True Yuan within his True Yuan Dimension became purer, and they spun around like a storm. Then, Zhao Feng’s aura soon stabilised. There was no dramatic increase in strength after breaking through to the Emperor rank. Only the quality and quantity of his True Yuan had increased.
The quality of Zhao Feng’s True Yuan was originally comparable to a Quasi-Sacred Lord, and now it easily surpassed Quasi-Sacred Lords. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to call it the strongest True Yuan – when one became a Sacred Lord, their True Yuan would transform into Mystic Light Sacred Power.
At this moment, the little thieving cat appeared in front of Zhao Feng and gave the Misty Spatial World to him.
After equipping the Misty Spatial World, Zhao Feng turned into a streak of light and charged out.
On the metallic city walls, countless beasts and nearly thirty peerless Emperors and Quasi-Sacred Lords crushed over.
The array that Shen Jizi controlled had used up all its energy and shattered with a Crack!
In the Ninth Prince’s team, Su Qingling was already injured and was being healed by Zhou Su’er.
Shi Yulei gripped the giant dark yellow shield and had it in front of himself. However, it wasn’t very effective since there were simply too many enemies.
Zhao Feng’s huge horde of beasts sustained heavy casualties against the other three beast tamers’ hordes.
The Ninth Prince raised the faint pseudo Crown Prince Seal and was about to release his draconic providence.
“I’m late,” Zhao Feng’s voice sounded in everyone’s soul.
The Ninth Prince instantly put away the pseudo Crown Prince Seal, and everyone else also let out a breath. They had been guarding this place to stall for time until Zhao Feng finished his breakthrough.
“Zhao Feng, quickly control the beast horde!” Old Ying’s expression turned to joy as he quickly spoke. The speed of Zhao Feng’s breakthrough had exceeded his expectations, but now wasn’t the time. As long as Zhao Feng regained control of the beast horde and unleashed his power, they had hope of successfully guarding the Heaven’s Legacy City.
“Zhao Feng, it doesn’t matter if you’ve broken through now. We’re all already here.” Xue Yuan laughed. The forces of the three princes had arrived on top of the metallic city walls, and the members of the Ninth Prince’s team had heavy injuries. Could Zhao Feng alone fight back against almost thirty Emperors and Quasi-Sacred Lords?
“Hmph, I just have to make all of you leave.” Zhao Feng harrumphed coldly as his expression turned cold.
Zhao Feng waved his left hand, and the Cloud Silkworm Saint Butterfly appeared. The terrifying Ten Thousand Ancient Race bloodline made the Emperors’ hearts shake, and it suppressed their bloodlines. They found it hard to even breathe.
Before anyone could even react, the Cloud Silkworm Saint Butterfly opened its mouth and spat out a five-colored silk that instant covered everything within several hundred yards.
“How absurd! How could the Cloud Silkworm Saint Butterfly’s silk possibly restrain all of us?” An Emperor couldn’t help but mock Zhao Feng’s dumb actions.
Almost thirty people charged at Zhao Feng and the rest of the Ninth Prince’s team. Since the Cloud Silkworm Saint Butterfly’s silk was too spread out, no one was caught at all. The experts that felt silk land on them released their True Yuan and just shook it off.
However, the Cloud Silkworm Saint Butterfly then started to flutter its little wings, and a half-transparent rainbow-colored pollen formed a whirlwind and swept across everything within range of several hundred yards.
Zhao Feng originally just wanted the silk to attract the enemy’s attention. Only then would the Dream Pollen be effective. After all, everyone knew that Zhao Feng had the Cloud Silkworm Saint Butterfly, so they would be on guard against it.
Zhao Feng had already messaged the other members of the Ninth Prince’s team to leave the range of the Dream Pollen attack.
“Not good! Retreat!”
“It’s the Dream Pollen!”
Dream Pollen could pass through the physical dimension, and it was effective even against Sacred Lords. Its supportive abilities were even better than the silk.
The thirty-some members instantly started to panic against the Dream Pollen and could only run around.
Luckily for them, not many people lost the ability to fight because of the Dream Pollen. However, Zhao Feng used this time to circulate the Ten Thousand Divine Thoughts Technique and split off almost a thousand thoughts, which he then merged into the beasts below.
Zhao Feng’s beast horde below the city wall instantly started to counterattack. With Zhao Feng’s precise control, he quickly defeated the enemy beasts and directed some of them to block the Emperor experts on the city wall. The Ninth Prince and the other members instantly felt their pressure decrease.
Every time Zhao Feng took action, it was to prepare for the next step. In just a couple breaths, he had gained control of the situation and started to turn the tide.
“I bet all of you want to come out and cause some destruction, right?” Zhao Feng murmured as he waved his left hand once more.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
Three giant golden figures descended onto the city wall, as if they were all giant metal mountains. The unparalleled and fierce aura of deadly beasts shook the hearts of anyone nearby and made them immediately retreat.
The golden fur of the three Sky Shaking Golden Apes stood up on end like needles, and they unleashed a desolate aura.
Some of the nearby Emperors were caught off guard and coughed out blood after being shaken by this terrifying bloodline aura. Some of the Emperors further away started to panic as they felt their bloodlines tremble uneasily.
“They’re beasts from this ancient dimension, and they have a bloodline of the Ten Thousand Ancient Races!”
“How is this possible!?”
“Zhao Feng gave his spiritual pets such a precious bloodline?”
The Emperors and Quasi-Sacred Lords attacking the city were stunned.
One had to know that each of the beasts in this dimension had Ancient genes in their bloodline. Once they obtained a bloodline from the Ten Thousand Ancient Races, their power would be almost comparable to the Ten Thousand Ancient Races species themselves.
Zhao Feng looked at the three Sky Shaking Golden Apes and was extremely satisfied with them.
When Zhao Feng was breaking through, the little thieving cat took the Misty Spatial World to the Ten Thousand Blood Palace and retrieved the Sky Shaking Golden Apes that were finished being strengthened. Since time was limited, only three Sky Shaking Golden Apes had been strengthened so far.
