Archean Eon Art - Chapter 332
Chapter 332 – Liu Qiyue’S Appointment
Liu Qiyue had cultivated to the peak of the Darkstar realm, so her phoenix bloodline was naturally purer. She unleashed all her might.
Her Essence Soul and body transformed continuously. Even her perception and insights towards fire constantly surged as she remained in a state of epiphany. Her Quintessential Essence also underwent a qualitative change. It even burned with flames.
How good would it be if I had such strength all the time? Liu Qiyue’s eyes turned red as she looked at the demon monarchs running outside the city. Quintessential Essence threads flew in all directions, enveloping Chu An City in the blink of an eye.
How beautiful. Marchioness Plum Snow was stunned when she saw this. The phoenix spread its wings in the sky as countless flaming threads flew in all directions, enveloping the entire city. Marchioness Plum Snow felt that she could never forget this
“Regis Godfiend.” The attacking demon monarchs sensed a terrifying aura erupt. It was an aura that made them tremble. Without any hesitation, most demon monarchs began burrowing underground and fled. However, the flaming threads spread across the city walls at blazing speeds, stabbing into the demon monarchs’ heads.
Some demon monarchs died. Others fled quickly. When they sensed the aura erupting from afar, they immediately burrowed into the ground and managed to escape. Many corpses fell to the ground following the laws of inertia. Some were still twitching.
“So what if she’s a Regis Godfiend? In the city, she won’t be able to kill me from a distance.” Eight third Firmament demon monarchs—which had extremely strong bodies-continued charging forward with confidence. Some of them were comparable to fourth Firmament demon monarchs. Some had extremely high physical talent, while others had very strong life-preservation means. They were confident that they could face a Regis Godfiend’s Quintessential Essence threads.
Pfft! Pfft! Pfft! The eight flame threads drilled into the eight demon monarchs’ bodies.
“How is that possible?” “My strength is comparable to a newly-advanced fourth Firmament demon monarch!”
Seven of the eight demon monarchs died on the spot. The remaining demon monarch transformed into three gray shadows and fled underground.
In terms of technique realm, Liu Qiyue hadn’t even reached the Dharma Domain realm. However, she had strength comparable to a peak Regis Godfiend after casting Phoenix’s Nirvana. This was because her Quintessential Essence had completely transformed into flames, making her strength terrifying. Ordinary Regis Godfiends were powerful due to being strong in many aspects. However, Liu Qiyue’s strength came from her flames. Liu Qiyue’s flames erupted with bursts of strength, making her comparable to a peak Regis Godfiend. Even a fourth Firmament demon monarch would suffer from her Quintessential Essence threads.
Over 1,000 Quintessential Essence threads erupted. Although it felt wonderful to be in a constant state of epiphany, Liu Qiyue immediately stopped maintaining Phoenix’s Nirvana.
She looked around. Liu Qiyue had killed nearly half of the attacking demon monarchs
—591 of 1,200 attacking demon monarchs had died! The demon monarchs had become more cunning and cautious, so it was a very high death ratio for her to kill nearly half of the attacking demon monarchs.
When Meng Chuan discovered Chu An City’s request for help, he immediately flew out from the underground and rushed towards Chu An City at full speed.
Quick, quick, quick. Quick! Meng Chuan was extremely anxious. He knew very well that only his wife and Marchioness Plum Snow guarded Chu An City. If Liu Qiyue didn’t cast Phoenix’s Nirvana, there was no way they could defend Chu An City.
The request for reinforcements has been retracted? After flying for a few seconds, Chu An City’s request for help was withdrawn. After flying for nearly 120 seconds, Meng Chuan arrived at Chu An City. He saw a large number of demon monarch corpses outside the city. Soldiers were busy collecting the corpses. He quickly flew to his and Liu Qiyue’s residence.
“Ah Chuan.” Liu Qiyue and Marchioness Plum Snow were sitting in the courtyard.
“Marquis Eastcalm, it’s all thanks to Junior Sister Liu’s use of the forbidden spell, Phoenix’s Nirvana, that we held back the demons. She killed nearly half of the attacking demon monarchs. The remaining demon monarchs fled.” Marchioness Plum Snow stood up and said, “I won’t disturb the two of you any further.”
Meng Chuan nodded slightly. After Marchioness Plum Snow left, Meng Chuan sat down beside his wife and looked at her worriedly. “Qiyue, how long did you maintain Phoenix’s Nirvana? How much of your lifespan did you consume?”
“It wasn’t long, I stopped once I released over 1,000 Quintessential Essence threads,” said Liu Qiyue with a smile.
“How much of your lifespan did you consume?” asked Meng Chuan again.
Liu Qiyue smiled and said, “Five years. It’s not much.”
Five years? Meng Chuan was somewhat anxious. His wife was only one year younger than him. She had burned more than 35 years of her lifespan. To have the highest chance of becoming a Regis Godfiend, it would be best if she broke through before she was 90 years old! She didn’t have much time left.
“There’s good news from using Phoenix’s Nirvana this time,” said Liu Qiyue with a smile. “My insights into the Dao of Fire have deepened, and my Essence Soul has become stronger. Furthermore, I’m certain that my Quintessential Essence threads can reach up to 60 kilometers when I cast Phoenix’s Nirvana! They are much stronger than an ordinary Regis Godfiend’s Quintessential Essence threads, be it range or strength.”
Liu Qiyue had stood in the middle of the city during the attack. Since her Quintessential Essence threads could reach up to 60 kilometers, they could easily cover Chu An City. They even crossed the city walls and extended further.
“Yes.” Meng Chuan nodded and frowned. “However, the demons are attacking too frequently nowadays. On average, they attack once a month. They mainly attack the Great Zhou Dynasty and Black Sand Dynasty’s cities. In the Great Zhou Dynasty, large cities like Luo Tang City, Jiang State Capital, Wu State Capital, and the Imperial Capital are rarely attacked. Many cities with over ten million people are attacked. It’s very easy to attack the city you are stationed at. It’s only been half a year, but you have encountered three attacks.” Meng Chuan was worried. “It’s one too many.”
Liu Qiyue smiled and said, “A large city with a population of over 20 million is naturally more important. Since Regis Godfiends are guarding them, the demons will naturally not attack those cities.”
Make something real appear fake and vice-versa? Archean Mountain didn’t dare use such a strategy. If a city with over 20 million people were to be slaughtered, the losses would be disastrous.
“When you use Phoenix’s Nirvana, although you can release Quintessential Essence threads in a large area, you will consume five years of your lifespan each time.” Meng Chuan shook his head. “This can’t continue.”
Once, twice, thrice… Soon, his wife would quickly lose the chance to become a Regis Godfiend. After becoming a Regis Godfiend, she would become even stronger. She could deal with many situations with her normal strength. Only then could his wife live longer.
The environment for past Godfiends that had awakened the phoenix bloodline was relatively comfortable. Marquis Godfiends usually lived for 200 years out of their 300-year lifespans. If Liu Qiyue continued to fight like this, she would burn her lifespan too quickly.
“Godfiends are constantly dying in battle. It’s just burning a few years of my lifespan,” said Liu Qiyue with a smile.
There’s a perfect solution, Meng Chuan thought.
Archean Mountain.“Meng Chuan’s letter.” Li Guan, Luo Tang, and Qin Wu sat down. Li Guan placed the letter on the table.
“Why didn’t he come to us directly if he had something? Why did he deliberately write a letter?” Luo Tang picked up the letter and frowned. “He’s worried about his wife.”
Qin Wu took the letter and scanned it. He nodded. “The demons are indeed attacking frequently. If Liu Qiyue frequently casts Phoenix’s Nirvana, her lifespan will be consumed quickly. Her chances of becoming a Regis Godfiend will quickly be severed.”
“King Luyue hasn’t refined the 8,000 poisonous bugs yet. The negotiations with Black Sand Grotto-Heaven has yet to come to a conclusion. How can he help Liu Qiyue?” Luo Tang shook her head gently. “There are many problems with the cities guarded by Marquis Godfiends. Are we to awaken a Regis Godfiend just to replace Liu Qiyue?”
“We can’t. We can only last longer if half of the 25 ancient Regis Godfiends are asleep,” said Li Guan.
Qin Wu’s eyes suddenly lit up when he read the letter. “Meng Chuan says in the letter that when Liu Qiyue casts Phoenix’s Nirvana, her Quintessential Essence threads can reach a distance of 60 kilometers. Her strength far exceeds that of ordinary Regis Godfiends. Since that’s the case, transfer her to a large city with more than 20 million people! The demons seldom attack large cities. Occasionally, they attack one or two cities. Perhaps in five years, they might not even attack Liu Qiyue’s city once.”
Li Guan and Luo Tang’s eyes lit up.
Luo Tang smiled. “She has the strength of a peak Regis Godfiend when she casts Phoenix’s Nirvana. She’s more suitable for guarding a major city than ordinary Regis Godfiends.”
