Archean Eon Art - Chapter 529
Chapter 529 – Tribulation Transcendence And Passageway
Meng Chuan sat cross-legged in the Chaos Hole’s depths. With the Lightning Domain Seal aiding him, he carefully sensed his pitch-black surroundings. Emperor Roc had long vanished. Emperor Roc is hiding in the distance and hasn’t left. Meng Chuan frowned slightly. He had tried escaping before, but when he arrived at the Chaos Hole’s periphery, Emperor Roc suddenly appeared and intercepted him. Meng Chuan barely managed to escape back into the Chaos Hole’s depths.
With karma, it can lock onto my location at any time. Once I escape, it will be able to sense everything. Once I fall into the array formation trap it has set up, it will be over. It’s fine if this true body dies, but I can’t let the treasures on me fall into its hands.
Forget it. Unless my strength increases to the point that I can fight it head-on, I’ll hide in the Chaos Hole’s depths.
The difference in life order between the two parties was huge. The other party could easily lock onto him through karma, but he couldn’t sense Emperor Roc. It was best for him to hide patiently.
At that moment, Emperor Roc hid in the void outside the Chaos Hole accretion disc. He set up an array formation in the vicinity. The array formation isolated any external prying. Emperor Roc was currently experiencing his third Physical Body Tribulation. Blood-colored fog—which came from the void -constantly seeped into Emperor Roc’s body. Emperor Roc transformed into a Golden-Winged Roc as the blood fog enveloped him, seeping into every feather and changing his body.
“Roar!” Emperor Roc’s eyes suffused a sanguine glow as his breathing turned heavy.
His golden wings gradually transformed into blood-red wings. Chi! Chi! Chi!
On his back, a second pair of wings slowly emerged as it grew, spreading to its heart’s content. Following that, a third pair of wings slowly grew. As for Emperor Roc, the bloody glow in his eyes turned brighter.
Expel! Emperor Roc gritted his teeth and roared.
Golden light bloomed from his body; the golden light tore through the blood fog.
The blood-red wings shattered, and the blood on the surface of his body gradually disintegrated. However, the blood-red wings continued growing as they shattered repeatedly.
Shatter, growth, shatter, growth…
After struggling for 14 hours, the sanguine glow in Emperor Roc’s eyes gradually receded as the golden light gained the upper hand.
Finally, the golden glow enveloped his entire body, and he returned to his Golden-Winged Roc form.
I’ve succeeded. Emperor Roc seemed to have lost half his lifeforce. He was extremely exhausted, and his eyes were filled with lingering fear. I never expected that I would nearly fail the third tribulation. What if it’s the much more terrifying fourth tribulation?
The first two tribulations were relatively easy to transcend. As long as one accumulated enough strength, they could typically survive the first two tribulations.
However, from the third tribulation and onwards, every tribulation’s strength changed qualitatively! Furthermore, the further one progressed, the more exaggerated the increase in strength became. The difficulty of transcending tribulations became even more exaggerated! Unless my strength improves greatly and I’m completely confident, I definitely can’t transcend the next tribulation. Emperor Roc was truly afraid. The past 14 hours had been a more difficult time for him than the past 7,000 years. Every moment had been a life-and-death struggle. After struggling for more than 14 hours, he finally transcended his third tribulation.
Outer realm cultivators only saw Tribulation Eminences’ might, but they didn’t know how torturous each Heavenly Tribulation was.
For example, Archean Eon Realm.
Due to their short history, apart from Ancestral Master Archean Eon, only three Essence Soul Tribulation realm experts were born. None of them had reached the Fourth Tribulation realm. Most of the time, a river system’s strongest expert was a Fourth Tribulation Eminence.
Therefore, when Patriarch Black Dragon was nearing the end of his lifespan, he couldn’t find a suitable Fifth Tribulation Eminence to hand over Heaven Peak River System to. To a Fifth Tribulation Eminence, a river system was no longer attractive. Black Fiend Hall’s Fifth Tribulation realm experts were only interested in ‘harvesting.’ After reaping the harvest, they would search for other river systems to target.
Emperor Roc survived his third Physical Body Tribulation with great difficulty, but that remained unknown to Meng Chuan, who remained hiding in the Chaos Hole’s depths.
Time passed. Meng Chuan had been hiding in the Chaos Hole’s depths for more than three years. However, his actual cultivation time was even longer. In the World Gap between Archean Eon Realm and the Demon Realm, King Calm Sea-who looked like he had been carved from dark-cyan ice-stood at the edge of the World Gap. He looked ahead solemnly.
The world membrane has closed.
King Calm Sea looked ahead.
The world membrane in front of him and the world membrane in other areas had completely fused together. The World Gap had completed its formation process. As the world membrane completely closed and isolated itself from the outer realm, the World Gap was extremely complete. The World Gap no longer had any scenes of a forming world. The World Gap has formed completely. It’s perfect; there are no flaws. According to Master and company, once the World Gap has completely formed, it means that the connection between Archean Eon Realm and the Demon Realm is at its strongest. It’s also when the two worlds are closest to one another. King Calm Sea was extremely solemn. This is the human world’s most dangerous period. I have to report to Archean Mountain immediately.
Archean Mountain, Grotto-Heaven Pavilion.
Meng Chuan, Qin Wu, Luo Tang, and Meng An were gathered together.
“Xue Ting sent news of the World Gap completely forming.” Qin Wu was extremely solemn. “The world will probably undergo huge changes soon.”
Meng Chuan nodded slightly. “I can see that many World Entrances have expanded greatly.”
At his realm, he could clearly sense any World Entrances in the world.
“Dad, a demon sage passageway might appear in the near future, right?” asked Meng An.
“Yes.” Meng Chuan nodded. “A demon sage passageway might appear in the next few days. If a demon sage passageway doesn’t appear in the next few days, it will probably never appear.”
“I hope one never appears,” said Luo Tang. “If one never appears, the demons that exit the super-large World Entrances will just be sending themselves to their deaths. They would have no hope of winning this war at all.”
“We have to be prepared for the worst,” said Qin Wu solemnly.
All of humanity’s upper echelons were on high alert because the next few days were most critical.
After the World Gap had completely formed, Archean Eon Realm changed drastically.
The number of small-sized, medium-sized, large, and super-large World Entrances increased. The human Godfiends were extremely cautious. However, Meng Chuan’s Essence Soul avatars were guarding the various areas. He was also controlling a large number of demon servants. Even a large group of fifth Firmament demon monarchs were his servants. The demons didn’t enter the human world because it was suicidal.
The third morning after the World Gap finished forming.
Luo Tang Pass.
The Grand Zhou Dynasty’s earliest super-large city pass was already very noisy in the morning. People were already rushing about with their daily lives.
As for the inner city pass, it was completely silent. Ordinary people were forbidden from approaching. The Godfiends and demon servants on the city wall were responsible for guarding it. An array formation was set up at the inner city pass. As long as Supremacy Luo Tang controlled this fixed array formation, even Monarch Peacock and Holy Lady Strings wouldn’t be able to touch it.
The World Entrance has become a little larger again. The Godfiends and demon servants observed the massive World Entrance.
Luo Tang Pass’s World Entrance was 19.5 kilometers wide. Such a length was equivalent to the width of a city!
Through the World Entrance, the Godfiends and demon servants could clearly see the vast Demon Realm.
The Demon Realm and Archean Eon Realm seemed to be one in front of such a massive World Entrance.
Buzz! Buzz! Buzz!
The World Entrance slowly trembled and grew. Ten feet, twenty feet, thirty feet… It slowly expanded.
The Godfiends and demon servants carefully observed the World Entrance’s borders. They inspected the World Entrance from their respective positions and accurately determined how much the World Entrance was expanding.
It was like thunder. An extremely deep rumble sounded, causing the hearts of every Godfiend and demon servant to palpitate. The World Entrance—which was 19.5 kilometers wide-suddenly expanded as the two worlds collided and warped.
The World Entrance expanded greatly.
The Godfiends and demon servants—who were in charge of monitoring the World Entrancecould not see the edges of the massive World Entrance with their naked eyes’ field of view. The World Entrance expanded greatly, tearing apart an extremely vast plantation.
“This, this…” The Godfiends and demon servants were shocked.
Luo Tang appeared in midair and stared at the massive World Entrance solemnly.
Meng Chuan’s Essence Soul avatar appeared in midair as it carefully examined the World Entrance. “Meng Chuan, is this a demon sage passageway?” asked Luo Tang.
