Archean Eon Art - Chapter 178
Chapter 178 – Surrounded
Blackwater Palace Lord stared at the distant youth in tattered clothing and cracked inner armor. “Very good. Very good.” Blackwater Palace Lord burned with anger. He originally thought that Zhang Yunfeng was the greatest threat, but now, he felt the threat Meng Chuan posed was even greater! With Meng Chuan around, the Godfiends would have the upper hand. They could fight and escape as they wished, even trapping him was up to them. He had no solution against this.
“Just hold him back,” said Zhang Yunfeng via voice transmission. “With Junior Brother Meng around, he won’t be able to harm me or escape my domain.”
“In that case, he can’t threaten other Godfiends either.” Yang Fang nodded as well.
“You three Great Solar Godfiends want to trap me?” Blackwater Palace Lord’s mighty voice resounded. “Alright, I’ll satisfy you.”
Blackwater Palace Lord stood where he was. However, his snake tail—that was over 100 feet long—lashed out with terrifying might.
The earth beneath tore apart, revealing a massive ravine that was hundreds of feet long. This ravine was 70 to 80 feet deep, revealing a tunnel beneath it! The hundred-plus mortals hidden within the tunnel had died from the impact. Blood stained the tunnel and chamber.
“Continue trapping me.” Blackwater Palace Lord’s long snake tail lashed out again as it struck another area. Similarly, a ravine spanning hundreds of feet cracked open, revealing a tunnel and chamber deep within. The mortals in the chamber died as well. Jiang State Capital’s population was rather dense. Typically, dozens of families would have large tunnels. The tunnels were hidden very well. It was difficult for lesser demons to find them, while demon monarchs had to search for them. As for Blackwater Palace Lord, he could easily sense the mortals’ auras through his Essence Soul domain.
Ordinary demon monarchs typically needed a few seconds to break into a tunnel. However, a casual strike from a fourth Firmament Skydemon could tear the earth apart and kill all the mortals inside.
In the blink of an eye, the long snake tail lashed out twice, destroying the two nearest tunnels.
“I’ll kill area by area. I’ll kill 1000, 10,000, or even 100,000.” Blackwater Palace Lord stared at the three Great Solar Godfiends coldly. “Continue trapping me.”
Meng Chuan, Zhang Yunfeng, and Yang Fang were burning with rage when they saw this. To have mortals slaughtered in front of them meant that they were useless Godfiends!
“Damn it.” Meng Chuan and Zhang Yunfeng’s eyes turned red. As for Yang Fang—who was the most irritable—he angrily shouted, ” Skydemon, die!” He wielded his two huge axes and charged forward as a stream of light.
“Haha…” Blackwater Palace Lord moved hundreds of feet away. His long tail struck the ground once again. The ground cracked open, and nearly a hundred mortals died.
“Come and fight me!” Yang Fang roared as his aura suddenly increased. His speed increased dramatically as he overtook Blackwater Palace Lord—who was suppressed by the domain.
“A forbidden Godfiend spell?” Blackwater Palace Lord didn’t dodge. He held one Water Splitter in each hand and faced Yang Fang.
The moment the two clashed, Blackwater Palace Lord staggered backward. With a shake of his snake tail, he immediately changed directions, dodging Yang Fang’s terrifying strike.
“Come on!” Yang Fang was extremely mad. He was fast, and his attacking speed was even faster. Blackwater Palace Lord didn’t dare parry his strikes. He was completely suppressed!
This isn’t good. His speed and movement techniques have improved. Furthermore, his strength is greater than before. Blackwater Palace Lord’s expression changed. When Yang Fang used a forbidden Godfiend spell, Blackwater Palace Lord was completely suppressed by Yang Fang and Zhang Yunfeng’s domain.
From afar, Senior Brother Zhang Yunfeng controlled the situation. When he saw this, he immediately sent a voice transmission. “Junior Brother Yang, Junior Brother Meng, we have a chance of killing this Blackwater Palace Lord. Heed my command.”
When Yang Fang attacked again with his axe—
Blackwater Palace Lord felt the pressure inside Zhang Yunfeng’s domain increase dramatically. The pressure within the domain was simply terrifying. Under the overwhelming pressure, Blackwater Palace Lord’s strength plummeted once again, reducing his strength a mere 30 percent of his original strength.
“Kill!” Zhang Yunfeng roared ferociously. His aura expanded as his skin turned red. He also used a forbidden Godfiend spell, causing the domain’s pressure to increase even further.
Not good. The instant the pressure within the domain grew, Blackwater Palace Lord was caught off-guard. Yang Fang—who also cast a forbidden Godfiend spell—had already cleaved down with his axe. This strike was meant to kill Blackwater Palace Lord!
Blackwater Palace Lord sensed incoming death. He didn’t even have time to use a forbidden spell. At the critical moment of life and death, he flicked his snake tail—which transformed into a phantom—and swept towards the axe.
Blood splattered everywhere.
The gigantic snake tail flew up. Blackwater Palace Lord’s face turned pale. Over half of his tail had been severed, causing the remnants of his snake tail to twitch.
Boom! Blackwater Palace Lord used a forbidden spell, causing his aura to expand rapidly.
Time to leave! After casting the forbidden spell, Blackwater Palace Lord ignored everything and headed for a particular direction.
“Escaping?” Yang Fang bellowed as he chased. Zhang Yunfeng was also chasing after him.
However, after using a forbidden spell, Blackwater Palace Lord’s strength had increased tremendously. Even though the domain was terrifying, he could still unleash 80 to 90 percent of his usual speed. Such speed was even greater than Yang Fang’s and Zhang Yunfeng’s speed. It was simply thanks to the upgrade in every aspect after reaching the fourth Firmament.
As for Yang Fang and Zhang Yunfeng, they were powerful in a particular aspect and had sacrificed speed for their specialization.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
Blackwater Palace Lord suddenly realized that lightning saber beams were cleaving at him.
“Meng Chuan, you can’t threaten me at all!” Blackwater Palace Lord felt contempt. He didn’t wish to attack as he ran because this would affect his speed. He decided to use his protective demonic powers to resist the strikes! This was because he felt like the saber beams were too weak to be a threat to him.
When the saber beams struck Blackwater Palace Lord, it failed to injure him. However, bouts of destructive Yin-Yang force surged into his body. Blackwater Palace Lord’s tail had been cleaved off, so when the destructive Yin-Yang force quaked Blackwater Palace Lord’s body, blood gushed out from the severed tail. This explosion within his body caused Blackwater Palace Lord to slow down significantly.
Yang Fang quickly caught up.
“Die.” Yang Fang followed Meng Chuan’s attack with an axe cleave.
Blackwater Palace Lord—who had cast a forbidden spell—only had 80 to 90 percent of his strength when under Zhang Yunfeng’s domain. As for Yang Fang, his strength had increased far beyond normalcy.
Although the clash wasn’t like before—severing the tail with a single strike—he was still completely suppressed.
“Continue this pummeling! Die! Die!” Yang Fang went mad.
A Great Strength Fiend Body expert is too strong. I can’t last for too long. It’s all because of this domain. This domain has suppressed over half my strength. Blackwater Palace Lord turned anxious.
Zhang Yunfeng and Yang Fang were two of Archean Mountain’s most powerful Great Solar Godfiends. When they cooperated, they achieved excellent results since their strengths complemented one another! At that moment, they disregarded their lives and used forbidden Godfiend spells, causing Blackwater Palace Lord to face a dire situation.
Blackwater Palace Lord barely managed to block five strikes. With great difficulty, he managed to escape from Yang Fang’s assault and continued fleeing.
Whoosh! Whoosh! Whosh!
Dozens of saber beams flew towards Blackwater Palace Lord.
Upon seeing the incoming saber beams, Blackwater’s heart sank. He couldn’t help but bellow angrily, “Meng Chuan, if you have the guts, fight me in close combat!” This time, he didn’t use his body to resist the saber beams. Instead, he infused his demonic powers into his Water Splitters to block the saber beams. However, doing this slowed him down. This gave Yang Fang a chance to catch up.
If I don’t resolve Meng Chuan, I won’t be able to escape. Blackwater Palace Lord understood this point. Even if he could block Meng Chuan’s saber beams, Meng Chuan could carry Yang Fang to him with his movement technique.
But how was he to deal with Meng Chuan? He couldn’t think of a solution. Blackwater Palace Lord realized that the three Great Solar Godfiend might really defeat him.
