Archean Eon Art - Chapter 363
Chapter 363 – Demons’ Trump Card
“Among the disciples I’ve taught over the years, Xue Feng’s talent and perception are considered top-notch. His future is limitless, but he died in the hands of this demon sage.” Qin Wu stood there, feeling somewhat sad. “Every time I think of it, it hurts my heart.”
Meng Chuan nodded. He was equally in grief and furious. “Master, a large array formation was set up at the spot where the demons ambushed me. It’s still there,” said Meng Chuan immediately.
“Oh?” Qin Wu’s eyes lit up. “Quickly bring me over.”
“Yes.” Meng Chuan flew underground with his master, Qin Wu. They instantly arrived at the array formation.
“It’s still here.” Meng Chuan’s electromagnetic domain swept over and discovered a portion of the array formation.
Qin Wu stood in his spot as wisps of sword beams gently swept across the area. The soil and rocks began to crumble silently, gradually revealing a large array formation. The runic patterns on the array formation were extremely profound. Ordinary demon sages would have to spend some time to figure out the array formation before they could set it up and disassemble it.
“Impressive. What a powerful array formation. It blocks off the world and spacetime. It seems that it can even block off one’s ability to pry into karmic heavenly secrets?” commented Qin Wu as he inspected the array formation.
“Master, you’re amazing,” said Meng Chuan. When he probed the array formation with his electromagnetic domain, he felt that many runic patterns were mysterious and that they involved spacetime. He couldn’t understand anything else.
“I cultivate the Thirteen Swordbane Fiend Body, so array formations are crucial,” replied Qin Wu with a smile. “Therefore, I know a little about heavenly secrets and array formations.”
The top Thirteen Swordbane Fiend Body expert was definitely an array formation master. Not only was each Swordbane extremely sharp, but they would also undergo a qualitative change in strength when placed in an array formation.
“If one doesn’t know about array formations, even Creation Supremacies won’t be able to dismantle the array formation. You would only damage it if you forcefully tore it apart,” said Qin Wu as countless sword beams began to dismantle the array carefully. When it came to array formations, Qin Wu was much more brilliant than Longswim. His insights into array formations had already reached the Grotto-Heaven realm. When he used his Swordbanes to set up his Tribulation treasure
—the Sky Splitting Sword Array—he gained unimaginable strength. If Demon Sage Nine Abyss dared showed his face, he would be reduced to dust by the sword array.
In just a few seconds, countless array formation components were dismantled and stored away by Qin Wu. If he wanted to set up an array formation, he could set it up within 30 seconds.
“This array formation is extremely valuable. I only had the chance to kill Patriarch Yellow Oscillate because you held it back.” Qin Wu smiled at Meng Chuan. “I wonder how many credits you deserve.”
“Master, does the sect award you credits for killing enemies?” asked Meng Chuan.
Qin Wu was taken aback because he was one of the people in charge of the sect’s resources.
“You can ignore credits when you become a Creation Supremacy,” said Qin Wu with a smile. “As for now, we still need to keep tabs on credits! The rules are the rules. We must not disregard them.” “Yes.” Meng Chuan nodded. His contributions to the human race were terrifying. He earned nearly ten million credits per day by conducting underground reconnaissance. Of course, he wouldn’t exchange the credits for items recklessly. With his current strength, ordinary treasures were useless.
In fact, the sect had already given him a lot. The Tribulation treasure-Bloodblade DiscClear Sky, protective stone talisman, and so on were directly given to him.
During wartime, Archean Mountain tried their best to protect every sect disciple. Of course, the disciples were also risking their lives as they died in combat, one after another.
“There were at least three demons who ambushed you. How did you survive the array formation’s might?” asked Qin Wu curiously.
“The Cloud Dragon Snake Movement Technique I created has also reached the Dharma Domain realm,” explained Meng Chuan. “This movement technique is based on the World Roving Dragon Saber. However, it has way more variations. Therefore, after the technique reached the Dharma Domain realm, my true body can enter the deep void. I hid in a deep void layer and had the Bloodblade Disc protecting me. That’s how I managed to block the opponents’ attacks. I killed an ordinary fifth Firmament demon monarch and the black-robed demon monarch, Mo Nan.”
North Sense had once split into thousands of incarnations. He had claimed to be Demon Monarch Mo Nan when he tried to convince every Godfiend to switch sides. He had also met Meng Chuan and his wife.
“A self-created ultimate technique? You improved the World Roving Dragon Saber?” Qin Wu looked at his disciple in surprise.
Successors stood on the shoulders of their predecessors. King True Martial had only created his True Martial Seven Absolutes after basing it on Grandsire Yin Yang’s ultimate technique. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have created it so quickly.
However, being able to build on the foundations of a predecessor and improve on it was a manifestation of one’s ability.
The World Roving Dragon Saber was known as the number one movement technique for humans. Meng Chuan had even improved it? Furthermore, he had created two ultimate techniques at his age, which had both reached the Dharma Domain realm?
My disciple’s talent is truly impressive. Perhaps a miracle will really happen thanks to him. Qin Wu looked at his disciple as many thoughts surfaced in his mind.
“Master, that black-robed demon monarch, Mo Nan, is very strange.” Meng Chuan was puzzled. “It should have the strength of a peak fifth Firmament demon monarch. However, it doesn’t have any life-preservation or escaping means. I quickly killed it with my Bloodblades.”
Logically speaking, a peak fifth Firmament demon monarch would spend all their effort on cultivating life preservation and escape abilities.
“That isn’t its real body.” Qin Wu smiled and said, “Demon Monarch Mo Nan has thousands of embodiments. It has appeared everywhere in the world, and Archean Mountain has long noticed it. We originally suspected that it was a newly-advanced fifth Firmament demon monarch and was good at embodiment arts. Since you said that it has the strength of a peak fifth Firmament demon monarch, it means it isn’t a newly-advanced fifth Firmament demon monarch. Instead, it should be a demon sage. The only one that matches that description is Demon Sage North Sense! It is the best at avatars and embodiments among the demon sages.”
“Demon Sage North Sense?” Meng Chuan had long received intelligence about the demons. He knew about the top demon experts and knew about Demon Sage North Sense.𝑓𝙧𝙚𝙚w𝙚𝙗𝒏oν𝐞l. c𝑜𝙢
Demon Sage North Sense was a very mysterious demon sage. His true body could almost never be found.
“Continue your underground reconnaissance. There’s no need to worry about the demons ambushing you,” said Qin Wu. “As I’ve said before, that protective stone talisman will definitely protect your life in the human world.”
“Even against the array formation that the demons set up?” asked Meng Chuan in surprise.
“Yes.” Qin Wu nodded. “It can definitely protect your life, but it’s gone once you use it. That is the last one.”
Meng Chuan nodded slightly. Definitely?
His master had spoken in absolute terms. Clearly, he was filled with confidence.
“Haha, as you become stronger, it will be more unlikely of you using this protective stone talisman. When you reach the Creation realm, this protective stone talisman can be returned to Archean Mountain,” said Qin Wu with a smile. “You have only become a Regis Godfiend for a short period of time. The demons ambushed you, but you ended up killing them instead. Even Patriarch Yellow Oscillate lost its life.”
Qin Wu was very pleased. The growth of his disciple made him feel less worried about him.
Xue Feng’s death was a pity. If Xue Feng had gone to Black Sand Grotto-Heaven for a few years and grew, Yellow Oscillate probably wouldn’t have been able to kill him.
Deep in the sea, inside a small grotto-heaven.
“Yellow Oscillate is also dead?”
Demon Sages Nine Abyss, Deep Profundity, and North Sense sat there silently for a long time.
Even if Longswim died, he was only a newly-advanced fifth Firmament demon monarch. North Sense had only lost an avatar, which could be recultivated. However, Patriarch Yellow Oscillate was dead. He was the first demon sage to die in the human world. This made the demon sages feel mixed emotions.
“How did this happen?” asked Demon Sage Nine Abyss in a deep voice.
“No one expected that the Godfiend was capable of hiding in the deep void. His defensive means are also very powerful,” said North Sense. “Although his offensive means are crude-weaker than that of King Calm Sea
– his defensive abilities are very strong. He can even withstand my illusions.”
“I never expected that we would not only lose the Three Terminal Formation, but even Yellow Oscillate.” Nine Abyss looked at North Sense. “Then, we’ll have to use our trump card. North Sense, tell me his name. Which Regis Godfiend is he? I’ll report it to the Imperial Lord. The Imperial Lord will spare no expense to kill him by cursing him across worlds!”Killing enemies across worlds. Even if Imperial Lord Starquix was adept at karma mystic techniques, it was very difficult for an Imperial Lord to kill Regis Godfiends across worlds. The price for doing so was also very high.
North Sense shook his head. “I don’t know his name.”
“Those ancient Godfiends are Godfiends that were born in the past 1,000 to 2,000 years. We’ve fought humans for 800 years. Although there’s very little information on these ancient Godfiends, we should be able to recognize most of them, right?” asked Nine Abyss with a frown.
“He was wearing a mask,” said North Sense.
“So what if he was wearing a mask?” said Deep Profundity. “You fought him. Can’t you guess his identity from his moves?”
“No one fits the bill,” said North Sense.
“So we still don’t know who he is after a battle?” Nine Abyss couldn’t help but ask, “Even if the Imperial Lord wants to carry out the curse, he won’t even have a target?”
“I really can’t recognize him.” North Sense shook his head.
