Archean Eon Art - Chapter 386
Chapter 386 – Impregnable
He’s my opponent for the fourth level? Meng Chuan looked at a middle-aged man with two swords on his back. This is the first human opponent I’ve encountered in the Battle God Pagoda.
Of course, it was just created by the formation. “Your body is rather powerful, but your saber art is a little rough,” said the middle-aged man with a smile. At the same time, he drew the two swords on his back.
“You know what happened during the first three levels?” asked Meng Chuan.
“Of course.” The middle-aged man smiled and said, “I control every opponent in the Battle God Pagoda. Due to this, I know the methods you used in the previous battles. As for who I am? I’m the Battle God Pagoda itself. What you encountered previously were some living beings that had once existed in reality. It simply simulated their strength when they were alive.”
“You sure talk a lot. You didn’t speak much during the first three levels,” said Meng Chuan.
“That’s because I estimate that you will stop at the fourth level,” said the middle-aged man with a smile. “It’s been hundreds of thousands of years. It’s been quite lonely waiting for a human to enter the Battle God Pagoda.”
“I’ll stop at the fourth level?” Meng Chuan drew his saber. “Be careful.”
“I can’t kill you if you hide, but you can’t kill me either,” said the middle-aged man with a smile.
With a flash, nine Meng Chuans charged forward.
The middle-aged man stood in his spot, holding a sword in each hand. He knew very well that they were only embodiments. Furthermore, protective sword beams began to surface on his body. At the same time, the surrounding void began to distort. The closer Meng Chuan got to the depths of the void, the greater the effects of the distorted void. He would be forced to appear when he was 1,000 feet away.
I can kill you with a single strike when I’m 1,000 feetaway from you. Meng Chuan circled the middle-aged man as he constantly attacked.
Clang! Clang! Clang!
Saber beams shot out.
Meng Chuan was either as fast as lightning, or extremely unpredictable. However, the middle-aged man easily parried the attacks with his sword. His defense was flawless. “In my sword domain, your shallow saber techniques are useless.”
Meng Chuan revealed his true body and charged into the thousand-foot-wide distorted area. He came close to the middle-aged man.
The opponent was a human Godfiend formed by the array formations. His sword arts were superb, but his body was relatively weak. With his Blood Droplet-realm body, Meng Chuan naturally had to attack his opponent’s weaknesses. He had to engage in close combat!
“That’s right. Your body’s strength is your advantage. You should engage in close combat.” The middle-aged man still swung his sword in a relaxed manner. Every strike forced Meng Chuan to retreat. “Unfortunately, my swords exhibit both Yin and Yang. They are impregnable.” Boom!
Suddenly, a thick bolt of lightning erupted. The lightning was far faster than any weapon or movement technique.
Meng Chuan’s movement technique was as fast as a beam of light. However, without the Bloodblade Disc, he could only travel a few dozen kilometers in a second. A true bolt of lightning… was much faster than Meng Chuan. In the blink of an eye, it could traverse the entire human world.
Therefore, there was no way to dodge real lightning. One was bound to be hit.
No matter how powerful or exquisite the middle-aged man’s sword techniques were, he was still struck by the lightning bolt. Although his sword domain weakened the lightning and his body was covered by a Yin-Yang protective sword beam, he suffered the brunt of the lightning strike—which was as strong as a Creation realm expert’s attack. He vomited blood as his body turned numb.
Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!
Divine Power—Heaven’s Wrath!
Meng Chuan cast Heaven’s Wrath five times consecutively!
Every Heaven’s Wrath was comparable to the strike of a normal Creation realm expert. The powerful lightning bolts made it difficult for the middle-aged man to use his transcendent sword art. He could only use his domain and protective sword beam to withstand the strikes.
The first strike numbed his body as the protective sword beam began to dissipate. The second strike caused even more damage. This was followed by the third, fourth, and fifth lightning bolt! After five consecutive strikes, the middle-aged man’s charred body fell to the ground. His two swords had long been sent flying by the lightning. His charred body dissipated as he vanished from the world.
Impregnable defense? I really want to see how you defend against lightning! Meng Chuan felt empty. To ensure that he could pass the fourth level, he had released all the lightning in his body.
I’ll take a breather first. Meng Chuan sat down cross-legged and used his grotto-heaven’s Origins power to replenish the lightning in his body rapidly. He wanted to attempt the fifth level in his peak state. Therefore, he had to wait for his lightning stores to recover completely. Heaven’s Wrath is indeed excellent. Back then, it was this move that saved King Calm Sea’s life. This move is impossible to dodge thanks to its extreme speed. It can even cause paralysis. It’s very effective against those with weaker bodies.
He passed the fourth level? Outside the Battle God Pagoda, the Guardian was astonished. The opponents on the fourth level typically target the weak points of those who enter the pagoda. They are opponents at the Creation realm. It’s very difficult to kill them.
The opponents a Godfiend encountered varied. The opponents would target the weakness of the Godfiend; therefore, it was hard to advance further.
His ranking has increased. He’s ranked 12th. The Guardian looked at the stone pillar in puzzlement. He’s 59 years old. He killed an opponent at the threshold of the Creation realm. His strength is astonishing. Does the Battle God Pagoda still think that Humanity’s Demon Slayer doesn’t have the right to be in the top ten?
It’s impossible to clear the fifth level. Typically, one needs to be at the peak of the Creation realm before they can do so.
After resting for six hours and using his grotto-heaven’s Origins powers to recover, Meng Chuan went to the fifth level.
The fifth level.
Oh? Meng Chuan looked in front of him.
A human elder stood there. His Grotto-Heaven domain enveloped 50 kilometers around him. It was extremely powerful. This Grotto-Heaven domain was simulated by the Battle God Pagoda, but its might was in no way inferior.
“I never expected you to have such a powerful divine power as a human Godfiend,” said the human elder. “Every bolt of lightning was astonishing in strength. I lost due to the five consecutive strikes.”
“I’m also doing this to clear the Battle God Pagoda,” said Meng Chuan. “Now that the human world is facing a calamity, I have to be ranked in the top five before I can help the human world.”Meng Chuan had extravagant hopes. He hoped that his words would make the other party be biased towards him.
“Humanity is facing a calamity?” The elder was puzzled.
Meng Chuan explained the situation in the outside world. The human elder listened carefully. After all, he had been isolated for too long. Furthermore, he also stood on the side of the human world.
“I really want to help you, but I’m the Battle God Pagoda. I have to follow the rules set by Ancestral Master Archean Eon,” said the human elder. “Your opponents on the fifth level are all at the Creation realm. There are a total of nine.”
Just as he finished speaking, the power of the array formation began to condense one opponent after another.
Apart from the human elder, there was also a demon sage. The coiled demon dragon was nearly two kilometers long. There was a winged alien expert. His entire body shone with a golden light. There was also a tall, skinny elder with dark skin. There were two soft feelers on his forehead…
There were a total of nine Creation realm existences.
The human elder apologetically said, “This is a rule. There’s nothing I can do about it. I can tell you that each of the nine experts here are equivalent to an ordinary Creation realm expert. They each have their own strengths. They have strong physical bodies, domains, long-range attacks, etc… They will cooperate with each other as they deal with you. You will need to kill all of them before you can clear the fifth level. In history, peak Creation realm experts generally can clear the fifth level.”
