Archean Eon Art - Chapter 443
Chapter 443 – Bottleneck
“You will be split into two teams.” Imperial Lord Starquix sat high in the hall, his voice echoing. “Demon Monarch Peacock and the Eighteen Black River Guard will form one team. Demon Monarch Strings, Demon Monarch Coldmoon, and Demon Monarch Poison Dragon will form another team. This way, each person can cooperate with each other and increase the team’s overall strength. You will also have greater confidence in killing Godfiends.”
“Yes,” said Monarch Peacock and company respectfully.
Although they didn’t know their companions’ current strength, they trusted the Imperial Lords very much. The Imperial Lords had better judgment than them.
The three Imperial Lords led Monarch Peacock and the other demon monarchs to an area more than 500 kilometers away from Ice Palace.
With a single punch, Emperor Roc tore through the Demon Realm and World Gap’s world membranes. He blasted open a thousand-foot-wide hole. Through the hole, one could see the vast World Gap.
“You should understand the importance of this mission,” said Emperor Roc coldly. “If you do well, we won’t be stingy with our rewards. Us three Imperial Lords will do what we promised you. However, if anyone deliberately doesn’t put in the effort… don’t blame us for being heartless.”
“Don’t worry, Imperial Lord.”
“We will do our best.”
Monarch Peacock and Patriarch Poison Dragon held their breaths as they immediately replied.
Although they were the strongest fifth Firmament demon monarchs and all of them had improved, the Imperial Lords could still kill them with just a thought.
Even Patriarch Poison Dragon-who was known for his Undying body-could easily be sealed in a void by the Imperial Lords. Once he was trapped in this void, they could completely shatter the void and all its contents. Patriarch Poison Dragon would also be destroyed. This would happen in the blink of an eye.
With the absolute difference in strength, even the arrogant Monarch Peacock had to obey their orders.
“GO,” instructed Lady Blackmoon.
After Monarch Peacock and the other demon monarchs bowed, they immediately entered the huge hole and flew into the World Gap.
In the World Gap.
Monarch Peacock and company landed on the ground and looked at each other.
“The Imperial Lords are willing to pay any price to conquer the human world,” said Holy Lady Strings. “Therefore, we can’t afford to be negligent. If we anger the Imperial Lords, the consequences would be disastrous.” “For the Imperial Lords’ rewards, we have to do our best,” said a demon monarch in the Eighteen Black River Guard with a smile.
“Split up,” said Monarch Peacock coldly before flying into the distance.
“Brother Peacock.” The Eighteen Black River Guard hurriedly followed. They were in the same team as Monarch Peacock.
“Let’s go as well.” Holy Lady Strings glanced at her two companions. “The two of you will have to brief me about your current strength in detail. Only then will we have better teamwork.”
“It’s only right.” “We need to understand each other if we want to work together.”
As they chatted, the team left quietly.
In the World Gap, at the fracture between the land and sky.
Meng Chuan, King True Martial, King Calm Sea, Peng Mu, and Yun Jianhai were cultivating. They didn’t disturb each other.
King Calm Sea, who now had a deep-cyan ice body, looked at the darkness beyond the fractured area. Every time, he would accumulate strength for a long time before slashing at the darkness. King Calm Sea—who had now been a modified lifeform for 11 years
-had improved after staying in the World Gap for so long. His sword techniques moved closer and closer to perfection.
Swish! Swish! Swish!
Densely-packed figures disappeared one after another, leaving only Meng Chuan.
Meng Chuan sat cross-legged in confusion. He looked up at the purple lightning that illuminated the endless darkness. It’s been 15 years since I came to the World Gap. I believe that I have accumulated enough insights in the Cloud Dragon Snake Movement Technique. However, I’m still stuck at the final bottleneck.
Based on his understanding of lightning and the two Tribulation-level ultimate techniques
– Lightning Realm and Three World Saber… His cumulative insights in the Cloud Dragon Snake Movement Technique was enough for it to reach the Grotto-Heaven realm.
The Infinite Saber pursues extreme speed. It has to break free of the worldly laws’ suppression. I can understand why it is so difficult for me to make a breakthrough in it. However, the Cloud Dragon Snake Movement Technique doesn’t need to break free the worldly laws’ suppression. It shouldn’t be that difficult to break through.
It’s no wonder that so many Regis Godfiends are unable to reach the Grotto-Heaven realm. This step is indeed difficult to take. It’s already so difficult to make the breakthrough with the Cloud Dragon Snake Movement Technique. Making the breakthrough with Infinite Saber will be even harder than I imagined.𝒇re𝐞w𝐞𝚋𝒏𝚘ѵeƖ c𝗼𝑚
Meng Chuan had been somewhat vexed recently.
When stuck at a bottleneck, one couldn’t advance any further. One didn’t even know how to improve themselves, so one would naturally be worried.
If he didn’t figure it out, he would be stuck at this step forever!
I’ve been stuck at the bottleneck for over a year. What do I lack? How can I make the Cloud Dragon Snake Movement Technique reach the Grotto-Heaven realm? Meng Chuan pondered for a long time but couldn’t come up with a solution.
Forget it. I’ll do the same old. Since the Cloud Dragon Snake Movement Technique is stuck at a bottleneck, I’ll cultivate Infinite Saber first. I might end up getting a streak of inspiration. After all, they are both from the lightning lineage.
Meng Chuan drew his Demon Slayer and attempted to cultivate the Infinite Saber. However, he suddenly sensed something stirring in the distant void. Although he had yet to reach the Grotto-Heaven realm, his perception of the void was indeed sharper than most.
That direction. King True Martial, King Calm Sea, Peng Mu, and Yun Jianhai turned their heads at the same time. They felt an even stronger sensation as they felt the world membrane crack.
Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish! Swish!
The five immediately gathered.
King True Martial said solemnly, “The world membrane has been destroyed. Furthermore, it’s connected to the Demon Realm. The demons have likely sent demon monarchs in.”
The demons are finally taking action? Peng Mu, Yun Jianhai, and King Calm Sea were filled with fighting spirit.
“Meng Chuan, bring us there at full speed,” said King True Martial.
“Alright.” Meng Chuan nodded.
His Seamless domain enveloped everyone as they transformed into a bolt of lightning. They quickly rushed towards the source of the commotion.
“The demons have come to the World Gap.”
“The battle is finally about to begin.”
The five Regis Godfiends from Black Sand Grotto-Heaven and Two World Island also sensed the commotion.
“Let’s go.” King Molten’s fighting spirit soared. “I’ll bring everyone there.”
“Sorry for troubling you, King Molten,” said King Thousand Wood with a smile.
Invisible waves enveloped everyone present as they quickly rushed towards the rift in the world membrane.
Meng Chuan’s team was even faster, but the demons had already split into two teams and taken action. They arrived to see nothing.
On the contrary, King Molten’s slower team only flew for more than two hours before they encountered Holy Lady Strings’s team.
The void rippled as a black-robed woman, a black-robed, dragon-headed elder, and a silver-robed woman appeared.
“Demons.” King Molten, King Transcendence, King Northcleanse, King Gu Eyes, and King Thousand Wood also appeared. They probed each other with their domains and discovered one another.
“Human Godfiends? Don’t even think about escaping.” Holy Lady Strings’s killing intent was biting cold. She had suffered at Meng Chuan’s hands previously. Void threads appeared within a 150-kilometer radius around her.
Previously, her domain only had a radius of 50 kilometers. Now she could expand to a 150-kilometer radius, allowing her to envelop the five Godfiends.
Patriarch Poison Dragon and Demon Monarch Coldmoon similarly had immense killing intent.
“Kill them.” King Molten’s body was covered in a layer of armor. At the same time, golden flames erupted from his body and spread out. The power of the golden flames was terrifying, and it rapidly burned Holy Lady Strings’s void threads into nothingness. In an instant, a five-kilometer area around him turned into a sea of fire.
King Molten had refined a Tribulation treasure
—the Fire Refinement Star Cauldron—which was given to him by Black Sand Grotto-Heaven’s Halberd Hall. With his accomplishments in the fire lineage, the Fire Refinement Star Cauldron had terrifying might.
At that moment, the Fire Refinement Star Cauldron in his body constantly spewed out golden flames that burned in all directions.
His fire domain protected his companions as they charged towards Holy Lady Strings and company at high speeds. King Transcendence, King Northcleanse, King Thousand Wood, and King Gu Eyes were filled with killing intent.
“Good timing.” Holy Lady Strings was very patient. The Nine Lives Cocoon in her body began to release threads. The Nine Lives Cocoon’s threads mixed with her void silk and spread out in all directions.
