Archean Eon Art - Chapter 428
Chapter 428 – Start Cultivating
“After all, from the clashes, the demons have determined that our strength has increased significantly,” said King Molten.
Combat in the World Gap was the most critical step in the war.
If the fifth Firmament demon monarchs were unable to enter the World Gap, humanity would have a long period of peace. It might even result in permanent peace! The three sects naturally nurtured the Godfiend teams with all their might.
For the Archean Mountain party, Meng Chuan and King True Martial both had Tribulation treasures. Peng Mu and Yun Jianhai had also obtained Imperial Lord-level weapons. In fact, for Regis Godfiends, the difference between an Imperial Lord-level treasure and a Tribulation treasure wasn’t that great. This was because they were unable to unleash the full might of their treasures.
Peng Mu and Yun Jianhai originally had ordinary Creation realm combat strength. Although they had improved after cultivating in the World Gap for many years, their improvement wasn’t too significant. Considering their strength, the sect had given them Imperial Lord-level treasures that suited them best. They immediately obtained top Creation realm combat strength.
Although Two World Island and Black Sand Grotto-Heaven’s support was inferior to Archean Mountain’s due to the gap in heritage, they had also put in a lot of effort to nurture their Godfiends.
Two World Island placed great importance on King Thousand Wood. Therefore, they bestowed him with two Imperial Lord-level treasures. Together with his sixth-level Essence Soul, he was virtually invincible.
Two World Island even used a rare treasure to transform the body of King Thousand Wood’s companion, King Gu Eyes. As a Regis Godfiend that only had a remaining lifespan of over 40 years, King Gu Eyes had cooperatively reconstructed his body. There were many flaws with a reconstructed body. From then on, he was no longer human. His body would no longer be able to improve. During the body reconstruction process, failure was possiblehis body would collapse and die. However, once the process succeeded, his strength would increase greatly.
The demons’ Patriarch Poison Dragon had an undying body thanks to a rare treasure that had helped him reconstruct his body.
Black Sand Grotto-Heaven’s heritage was much richer than Two World Island’s. The Black Sand lineage, the Grand Yin lineage, and the Halberd lineage were all very unique. After all of Black Sand Grotto-Heaven’s efforts in grooming, King Molten, King Transcendence, and King Northcleanse each had their own specialties. When they joined forces, they were not inferior to Two World Island’s team.
“Thanks to our sects’ grooming, our strength has improved greatly,” said King Molten. “The demons were previously cultivating in the World Gap with peace of mind. Now that they are being hunted by us, the demons will definitely nurture those demon monarchs with all their might. The average strength of demon monarchs isn’t comparable to us Godfiends, but there are too many of them. In addition, they have been cultivating in the World Gap for many years. The number of demons that have Creation realm strength exceeds ours. Once the Imperial Lords groom the fifth Firmament demon monarchs, all of them will improve greatly.”
Meng Chuan nodded. “Yea.”
Holy Lady Strings’s strength would increase greatly just by having an Imperial Lord-level weapon that suited her, let alone a Tribulation treasure. If that were the case, he would only be able to flee when facing her—thanks to his astonishing speed. He wouldn’t dare to fight her head-on.
“The demons’ heritage is much richer than ours,” said King Molten. “They also have many treasures.”
Everyone present felt immense pressure.
Meng Chuan knew that Archean Mountain had the richest heritage, but the treasures left behind by Ancestral Master Archean Eon had been depleted by generations of Godfiends. Currently, only their ultimate techniques and Essence Soul mystic techniques were superior to the demons! They were at a disadvantage in many other aspects, especially when it came to treasures suitable for Regis Godfiends and Creation realm experts. They were very rare in the human world.
This was also the reason why humans had become weaker in the past hundreds of thousands of years. However, the demons had powerful experts for long periods! There were a few Imperial Lords each period. In history, they had quite the number of Tribulation Eminences. Over the years, the Demon Realm’s dominion was nearly ten times larger than the human world. It was considered the pinnacle of middle-level worlds.
“Therefore, we have to be even more careful now,” said King Molten. “The demons know about our abilities. It’s very likely that they will first focus on nurturing the demon monarchs. They will then send them to the World Gap to attack us. For example, they can have Monarch Peacock and several demon monarchs form a team and take the initiative to find us.”
“Yes.” Everyone present nodded.
“According to the plans set by the three sects,” said King True Martial, “we will patiently cultivate in the World Gap after our initial ambushes. The World Gap is a land of opportunity for us when it comes to cultivation. However, according to our original plans, Two World Island and Black Sand Grotto-Heaven will temporarily meet up. Your teams complement each other. Our Archean Mountain team will also meet up.”
King Molten nodded. “Alright.”
“With King Molten and company cooperating with each other, we can deal with all kinds of dangers.” King Thousand Wood nodded. He and his companion were best at using Essence Soul mystic techniques and Gu-worm arts. As for Black Sand Grotto-Heaven, their team was better at head-on combat. With both teams joining forces, their collective strength increased greatly.
With the Archean Mountain team helping them as well, their collective strength increased once again.
King True Martial, Meng Chuan, Wang Shan, Peng Mu, Yun Jianhai… They each had their own strengths. When they worked together, they had the confidence to fight any powerful team the demons sent.
“We will patiently cultivate for 20 years,” said King Molten. “After 20 years, all of us will enter a deep slumber.”
King Thousand Wood nodded. “That’s right. Our lifespans are limited. We can’t keep wasting it away.”
“The demons shouldn’t be able to delay for more than 20 years. The longer they delay, the more afraid they will be of unexpected developments,” said King True Martial with a smile. He glanced at Meng Chuan.
His Junior Brother Meng was a monstrous genius. With another 20 years of cultivation? His strength would probably improve further.
“If the demons really do delay for more than 20 years, you can sleep. It won’t be too late to wake up when the demons attack,” said King True Martial with a smile.
King Molten and King Thousand Wood nodded. They were all over 400 years old. Among them, King Molten was the oldest-he was only 31 years away from the end of his lifespan. King Thousand Wood only had 39 years left of his lifespan. Time was tight.
“I’ll take my leave then.” “Farewell.”
The two sides quickly separated.
The five Godfiends from Two World Island and Black Sand Grotto-Heaven left together. Although they had grudges between them, in the face of war, the two sects still worked together to fight the common enemy-the demons.
Dao Protector Wang Shan entered a small grotto-heaven to meditate. His Magic Awl slowly recovered from the damage it had suffered. If it were Meng Chuan, his Magic Awl could recover from the damage in two hours. However, Dao Protector Wang Shan needed nearly half a month.
Meng Chuan and company flew to a fractured area between the land and sky.
Boom!An extremely thick purple bolt of lightning tore through the River of Spacetime. The purple bolt of lightning was shockingly massive; one couldn’t even see its end with the naked eye. It was ferocious and terrifying, making King True Martial, Meng Chuan, and company feel threatened. “The lightning here is the strongest in the World Gap,” said King True Martial. “Let’s cultivate here.”
“Yes.” Peng Mu, Yun Jianhai, and Meng Chuan watched the purple lightning in shock. The black-and-white gases produced by the purple lightning formed a large black-and-white lake. Half of the lake was in the World Gap, while the other half was in the endless darkness.
The lake spanned 250 kilometers. The lake was composed of the black-and-white gas. The gas streams pursued each other, shattering the darkness. Colorful energy surged like waves.
“Don’t get any closer,” said King True Martial. “Once we are affected, we might die.”
“This is true power; it can destroy a world,” exclaimed Peng Mu. “Likewise, it can create a world.”
Meng Chuan observed the purple lightning carefully.
This purple lightning was different from what he had seen in the past. The feelings he had from observing the purple lightning was much more intense than before. Perhaps it was because it was so large-Meng Chuan couldn’t see the end of the purple lightning bolt with the naked eye. The sense of destruction made Meng Chuan’s heart palpitate.
He knew the purple lightning could destroy everything. If he approached it, he would definitely be reduced to dust instantly. Meng Chuan’s eyes were filled with desire as he comprehended this terrifying power.
