Archean Eon Art - Chapter 450
Chapter 450 – Grotto-Heaven Realm (1)
The 400-kilometer-long black river surged as the chains wrapped around the True Martial domain multiple times, binding it and exerting pressure on it.
In the True Martial domain, the Godfiends were thinking of solutions.
“We can’t stay trapped here,” King Thousand Wood said solemnly. “We have to think of a way to crack this formation.” “How do we crack it?” asked King Molten.
King True Martial waved his hand slightly, and an illusory figure appeared. It reflected the Eighteen Black River Guard that were nearly 50 kilometers away. King True Martial said, “These 18 demon monarchs are controlling the array formation. The array formation spans 400 kilometers; the 18 of them are at the center of the array formation. Judging by the runic patterns on their bodies… they are crucial for the array formation to function. As long as one is killed, the array formation will probably collapse! Even if it can be maintained, its might will be greatly reduced.”
“How do we kill one?” asked Peng Mu. “They are hiding nearly 50 kilometers away from us. Even our Magic Awls can’t touch them.” “If my body enters the black water, I’ll probably be reduced to dust instantly,” said King Transcendence. “Only King True Martial can withstand the array formation with his domain. None of us can do it. Even if we can barely withstand the array formation, we will be captured alive.”
Meng Chuan nodded slightly.
His Bloodblade Disc was his main protection means. Even if he was lucky enough to withstand the Black River Array Formation, it would be very difficult for him to fly due to the Black River Array Formation’s suppression. With Monarch Peacock and Holy Lady Strings cooperating, they could easily capture him alive.
A Dao Protector’s body was powerful and could be said to be indestructible. However, Dao Protector Wang Shan was relatively weak and could be easily captured alive. “If you have a small portable grotto-heaven, lend it to me. Everyone can hide in the small grotto-heaven,” said King Transcendence hesitantly. “I can try to escape by carrying the small grotto-heaven into the shadow world.”
“This method won’t work.” Meng Chuan frowned and shook his head. “The Godfiends can’t resist if they are to be stored in a small grotto-heaven! King True Martial is currently using his domain to block the demons’ array formation. Yes, we can hide in the small grotto-heavens, but what about King True Martial?
“If King True Martial isn’t releasing his strength because he’s not resisting, the array formation will sweep through the void, leaving devastation in its wake. Holy Lady Strings and Monarch Peacock’s killer blows will then descend. King Transcendence, King True Martial can’t enter a small grotto-heaven without any interference. Are you going to escape with us and have King True Martial stay where he is?”
“This method won’t work.” King Molten rejected the suggestion. “We will be unable to resist if we hide in a small grotto-heaven! If the demons have a way to break through the shadow world, we will be easily wiped out all at once.”
King True Martial nodded as well. “This method is very dangerous. I can destroy the shadow world myself. The demons have a rich heritage. We haven’t figured out what functions this mysterious array formation has. We can’t take such risks.”
Although there was a high chance that the demons could not pose a threat to them when they were in the shadow world, they couldn’t risk the lives of the Regis Godfiend group! In a small grotto-heaven, they couldn’t even attack or block. It would be terrible if they were wiped out in one fell swoop.
“Everyone, don’t panic. Junior Brother Meng and I can work together. We’ll try charging out,” said King True Martial. “I will use my domain to block the array formation. Junior Brother Meng will use his movement technique to carry me. Although we will be much slower under the array formation’s suppression, it’s still possible for us to travel up to 10 kilometers a second. We will charge straight for the 18 demon monarchs. As long as we are within 25 kilometers of them, King Thousand Wood can attack the 18 demon monarchs with his Magic Awl.”
“This is a solution. We can give it a try.” Everyone’s eyes lit up. Even if they failed, they could still hide in the True Martial domain.
“I used a killer move just now and was injured. I still need a day to recover completely,” said King True Martial. “Let’s try to counterattack in a day.”
Meng Chuan nodded. “Alright.”
How fast could he fly while being suppressed by the demons’ array formation? Meng Chuan wasn’t confident. His speed now depended on how the strength of King True Martial’s True Martial domain. King True Martial clearly needed to recuperate and reach optimal condition before giving it a try.
However, the demons didn’t want King True Martial to recover slowly. They wanted to accelerate the Godfiends’ energy consumption.
A long spear stirred the black waves as it pierced towards King True Martial once again.
Numerous Nine Lives Cocoon threads gathered and formed a white snake—which then charged into the True Martial domain.
However, the True Martial domain was too powerful. If Holy Lady Strings’s Nine Lives Cocoon threads were split into three white snakes, they would be suppressed by the True Martial domain. The threat they posed to King True Martial was negligible. King True Martial frowned slightly. “The demons aren’t willing to let me recuperate.” He immediately struck out with his palm, smashing through the void to block the spear.
Meng Chuan also released the 18 Bloodblades. They transformed into a sphere-it was like they had formed their own world—to block the white snake. Clang! Clang! Clang! Every time the white snake clashed with the 18 Bloodblades, some Bloodblades would fly backward. Other Bloodblades would immediately take their place.
These Bloodblades continued to fly as they interweaved each other. They naturally formed a sphere and blocked the White Snake’s attacks with extreme resilience. Although Meng Chuan could only block the attacks due to the True Martial domain’s suppression, Holy Lady Strings had ultimately reached the Grotto-Heaven realm’s late stage. The white snake’s attacks were indeed exquisite. Thankfully, I’m barely able to block the attacks by activating the Bloodblade Disc’s runic formations. If I had relied on my normal techniques, I would’ve been defeated long ago. The Bloodblade Disc’s defensive array formation is truly impressive.
The 18 Bloodblades take turns to form a world. The Bloodblades are like roving dragons, but the 18 roving dragons can still form a world… Meng Chuan sighed in amazement at the Bloodblade Disc’s runic formation. His current realm only allowed him superficial control over the Bloodblade Disc. After all, this was a Tribulation treasure refined by an Essence Soul Seventh Tribulation Eminence.
As Meng Chuan marveled at the array formation’s profundities, he suddenly froze.
Eighteen roving dragons form a world? Roving dragons form a heaven and earth?
That’s right. I pursue endless variability with the Cloud Draogn Snake Movement Technique. I originally felt like I should follow the same path as Supremacy Roving Dragon-Senior Ye Hong-and use the Roving Dragon Form of Lightning as the core. However, I think I should change my train of thought. I think I should… use the Nine Heavenly Forms of the Void’s essence as the core?
The Bloodblade Disc’s runic formation inspired Meng Chuan.
As he used the Bloodblade Disc to resist the white snake’s attacks, thoughts about how he should proceed with his cultivation surfaced in his mind.
The Cloud Dragon Snake Movement Technique was an ultimate technique created by Meng Chuan. It used the World Roving Dragon Saber’s foundation and took on a new path. This ultimate technique of Meng Chuan’s pursued endless variability.
Senior Ye Hong was known as Supremacy Roving Dragon. Her movement technique focused on the Roving Dragon Form of Lightning’s essence. When mastered, one could travel through the world with unpredictable movements.
Originally, Meng Chuan also thought that this path was correct. However, he added the Yin-Yang Transformation’s profundities on top of Senior Ye Hong’s foundation. After cultivating in the World Gap for many years, he had been stuck at a bottleneck. He was unable to fuse his years of insights into one and reach the Grotto-Heaven realm.
At that moment, Meng Chuan was inspired by the Bloodblade Disc’s runic formation.
No matter how mystical a roving dragon’s roving was, it was still within the world.
What if he used the Nine Heavenly Forms of the Void’s essence as the core of his movement technique?
As a large number of ideas surfaced in his mind, Meng Chuan’s years of accumulated insights into the Cloud Dragon Snake Movement Technique naturally began to fuse. He tried to use the Nine Heavenly Forms of the Void as the core, and the Roving Dragon Form of Lightning and Yin-Yang Form of Lightning as complements. For a moment, he seemed to gain the help of a god.
The ultimate technique gradually approached the Grotto-Heaven realm.
