Archean Eon Art - Chapter 278
Chapter 278 – The Creation-Realm Corpse
This lightning! Archean Mountain Lord didn’t dare to be negligent. The lightning made him feel the threat of death.
“Rise.” With a thought, a ten-foot-tall black figure surrounded Archean Mountain Lord’s body. It was only slightly bigger than Archean Mountain Lord. Black light surrounded it; its long hair draped over its shoulders. Its expressionless appearance was simple and unadorned. However, its weight far exceeded the 1,000-foot-tall illusory giant. It was a protective combat body that was only used for defense. Its defensive capabilities were several times greater than that of the illusory giant.
Boom! Boom! The lightning bolt traveled toward Archean Mountain Lord. Meng Chuan charged through the hole in the illusory giant’s chest. He held his saber and attacked Archean Mountain Lord’s true body.
The lightning broke through the Seamless domain’s Quintessential Essence layers and struck the ten-foot-tall black figure. The black light around the black figure swirled, exuding an incomparably menacing aura.
Chi! Chi! Chi!
Meng Chuan’s baneful aura domain naturally followed as he rushed toward Archean Mountain Lord.
As the baneful aura domain froze the black figure, Meng Chuan slashed again! Open! He cast Heaven’s Wrath again.
The terrifying lightning bolt struck the black figure before Meng Chuan’s dazzling saber beams followed.
Tiger Roar Stance. Meng Chuan cleaved down.
This junior brother of mine is really ruthless. Archean Mountain Lord grinned slightly. He formed a seal with his fingers as the black figure resisted the baneful aura domain, Heaven’s Wrath, and Meng Chuan’s numerous saber beams. None of them destroyed the black figure.
Suppress! The illusory giant shrunk to 100 feet before throwing a punch at Meng Chuan. The illusory giant threw punch after punch at Meng Chuan. In the blink of an eye, the illusory had punched dozens of times. These punches caused the surrounding void to form a void wave—they were like ocean waves.
The void distorted with a rumble as it surged in all directions like waves. The waves came from all directions. No matter how brilliant Meng Chuan’s movement technique was, he couldn’t dodge them all.
As Meng Chuan sank into the waves, the void waves made his body vibrate, causing his organs to suffer damage. However, these minor injuries instantly vanished, thanks to his Undying Body and astonishing vitality.
Meng Chuan was unable to resist the attack. He landed on the ground only after he was swept 1.5 kilometers away by the void waves.
Archean Mountain Lord cupped his hands and smiled. “Junior Brother, your lightning saber art is impressive. I can only force you into a retreat, but I can’t injure you at all.” “Senior Brother, your moves and technique realm are indeed far above mine.” Meng Chuan was sincerely convinced of Archean Mountain Lord’s strength. He had used his most powerful technique, but it had only reached his senior brother’s 10-foot-tall protective combat body. He was unable to do anything to the protective combat body and was eventually forced back by his senior brother.
In the distance, Qin Wu and Luo Tang smiled when they saw this.
“He’s much stronger than I expected,” said Luo Tang with a smile. “With his baneful aura domain, he has the strength of a peak Regis Godfiend. His escaping abilities are even stronger. He has an Undying Body, and his baneful aura domain can freeze his surroundings. His speed is unparalleled. Few Regis Godfiends can kill him.”
Qin Wu nodded. “His life-preservation abilities are considered top-notch among Regis Godfiends. Although there are a few rather powerful Archean Mountain Regis Godfiends, only King True Martial can kill Meng Chuan. The other Regis Godfiends, including King White Elephant and King Calm Sea, can’t kill him.”
Among Archean Mountain’s current Regis Godfiends, King True Martial was the strongest! The Regis Godfiends that had entered Archean Eon Grotto-Heaven and were still alive were King True Martial and King Calm Sea. King True Martial was old, but he had unfathomable strength.
“The stronger demons in the human world are mostly fourth Firmament demon monarchs,” said Luo Tang with a smile, “Even if they make a breakthrough, they are only newly-advanced fifth Firmament demon monarchs. They aren’t a threat to Meng Chuan. According to our intelligence, other than Demon Sage Nine Abyss, no demon can threaten Meng Chuan in the human world. As for Demon Sage Nine Abyss… it’s the only demon sage to enter the human world. It won’t risk its life easily.”
“Yes.” Qin Wu nodded with a smile. “During the final battle, Meng Chuan can play a greater role. However, I still have to think of a way to make up for his shortcomings.” “What do you mean?” asked Luo Tang.
After the exchange of blows between Meng Chuan and Archean Mountain Lord, they became even more impressed with each other.
Archean Mountain Lord was shocked by the astonishing potential of his junior brother. Meng Chuan wasn’t far from reaching his current strength. Meng Chuan also realized that there was still a difference in strength between him and his senior brother.
“Master, Supremacy.” Meng Chuan walked over and bowed to Qin Wu and Luo Tang. Archean Mountain Lord also bowed.
Qin Wu and Luo Tang smiled.
“We tested your strength to determine how you will be deployed during the final battle,” said Qin Wu with a smile. “From the looks of it, you barely have the strength of a peak Regis Godfiend with your baneful aura domain aiding you. Although your defensive and escaping abilities are very good, your offensive abilities are still a little weak.”
“Yes,” admitted Meng Chuan. “Most of my strength comes from my baneful aura domain.”
With his baneful aura domain aiding him, he could barely be considered a peak Regis Godfiend. He was lacking in killing moves. His divine power-Heaven’s Wrath-wasn’t bad, but he could only use it three times consecutively.
“You don’t have to be disheartened,” said Qin Wu, “It’s already not bad to have such strength after cultivating for only a few decades.”
“Junior Brother’s talent is impressive. In the future, when he becomes a Regis Godfiend, he will definitely be one of the strongest,” praised Archean Mountain Lord. “Compared to Junior Brother, I feel like I’m much more mediocre.”
Though the position of nominal sect leader seemed to be quite distinguished, this position was typically given to Regis Godfiends with lacking cultivation potential. For example, King Calm Sea was still young, but his strength was above that of Archean Mountain Lord. He had the greatest chance of becoming a Creation Supremacy. Archean Mountain didn’t want him to waste his time dealing with many trivial matters. King True Martial and the other talented Regis Godfiends didn’t have to handle any trivial matters either.
“Hahaha, alright. Let’s go out.” Qin Wu laughed.
The illusory Luo Tang dissipated as Archean Mountain Lord left to do his work.
“I’ll take my leave as well.” Meng Chuan bowed.
“Don’t be in a rush to leave. I still have something to tell you,” said Qin Wu. Meng Chuan immediately followed his master back to Grotto-Heaven Pavilion.
Within Grotto-heaven Pavilion, Qin Wu sat there and leisurely poured himself a cup of tea. The tea was still steaming. He held the cup of tea and smiled at Meng Chuan. “After discussing with Luo Tang, we’ve decided that you will act alone during the final battle. You will be responsible for rescuing various cities.”
Rescue? Meng Chuan’s eyes lit up.
“Your strength is sufficient for you to act alone,” said Qin Wu. “Don’t worry. We have a detailed plan for dealing with the final battle. You only play a tiny role.”
“Yes,” replied Meng Chuan obediently.
“Compared to everything else, your offensive means are a little weak. There’s nothing you can do about that. After all, you haven’t reached the Dharma Domain realm.” Supremacy Qin waved his hand, and a corpse appeared in the garden beside him.
Meng Chuan was stunned by the corpse. It was about 30 feet tall. It had three pairs of black-scaled wings and a curved horn on each side of its head. The size of its palm was larger than that of a human body. Every finger was like a hook.Although the corpse’s aura was restrained, Meng Chuan still felt oppressed. This was a natural pressure brought about by the differences in life’s natural order.
“This is an alien corpse at the Creation realm,” said Qin Wu. “Our Archean Mountain ancestor killed it in an outer realm and brought it back. This alien cultivated its body. It died a long time ago, but its body doesn’t decay. You can take it with you and use your Demon Slayer to devour it for two hours a day. It will probably take half a month for Demon Slayer to devour the corpse completely.” “Let Demon Slayer devour it?” Meng Chuan looked at the corpse in disbelief.
How many credits did a Creation-realm corpse cost?
“It’s just a corpse. It’s nothing to Archean Mountain,” said Qin Wu with a smile. “The powerful Godfiends of Archean Mountain will all be nurtured. You are only one of them.”
This was the truth. Archean Mountain thought of ways to make King True Martial, King Calm Sea, and the others stronger. That way, they could play a larger role in the final battle.
“Go, go. Don’t just stand there.” Qin Wu waved his hand and picked up the dossier beside him.
“Yes, Master.” Meng Chuan didn’t think too much about it. He immediately put away the Creation-realm alien corpse into the Grotto-Heaven Magic Bead before quickly leaving
Only then did Qin Wu put down the dossier. As he watched Meng Chuan disappear into the horizon, he muttered to himself, “There’s still too little time. Meng Chuan’s talent is high, but he still needs time to grow slowly. I hope that by holding out longer, there will be a miracle!”
