Lord Xue Ying - Chapter 1341
Chapter 1341 – Poison Demon Dragon
Translator: Chaos_ Editor: Chaos_
The cultivators had an overwhelming advantage. In terms of individual strength, other than two ‘Late Stage God Emperor’ lone cultivators, the weakest had the strength of Grand Perfection God Emperors! As for that group of Chaotic Origin Lifeforms, the ‘Ant Dragons’, even though they their survivability was much stronger, most of them were much weaker–quite a few Ant Dragons were at the strength of Middle Stage God Emperors, with some at Late Stage and some Grand Perfection God Emperors.
Furthermore, the cultivators had different strengths. They could coordinate well perfectly. And as a result, the cultivators were able to exert an incredibly strong combat power. Just like how the small team of eight that once saved Xue Ying and easily suppressed close to a hundred ‘Shadow Reapers’, one could see how frightening this group of Grand Perfection God Emperors would be after going through careful selection.
At this moment.
Daoist Hidden Horizon had a team of elite under him! Xie Fan was similarly leading a group of elites that could coordinate very well together. The majority of the other lone cultivators were also Grand Perfection God Emperors.
As for the Ant Dragons?
All of them had similar techniques. Hence, it was hard for them to cover up their weaknesses!
Especially so when the cultivators were only seeking to cast away from the group of Ant Dragons. They were not seeking for a battle.
Once they charged through, they immediately broke through the group of Ant Dragons. Those Ant Dragons could not hinder their movement at all.
“Die.” Xie Fan’s aura struck out like a tsunami. It caused the surrounding time-space to distort, moving in the directions of two Ant Dragons and flinging them away.
“Hou~~~” One of the Grand Perfection God Emperor Ant Dragons roared. It struggled in resistance.
But another Late Stage God Emperor Ant Dragon had already come close to Xie Fan during this intermission. Xie Fan punched out at the chest of that Ant Dragon, causing its enormous body to tremble. Following that, the soul and aura of that Ant Dragon was wiped.
‘One punch is enough for him to kill a Late Stage God Emperor Ant Dragon?’ They were not in a dangerous situation currently. Xue Ying still had the time to observe around him. When he saw the power in Xie Fan’s fist, his pupils could not help but dilate, ‘Even Cloud Phoenix City Master could not do this. Killing a Chaotic Origin Lifeform with a single punch? He is indeed a Dao Cultivator who has attained the Half-Chaotic Origin Lifeform Body, and is also the one with the heaviest body in the entire Scarlet Cloud City. In terms of strength, he might perhaps be comparable to Cloud Phoenix City Master, yet his techniques are greatly more profound and transcendental! His one punch did not seem to injure the body of the Ant Dragon, yet it died…’
Xue Ying felt a chill down his spine.
The other party dared to threaten Xue Ying within Scarlet Cloud City. Indeed, it was because of overwhelming strength.
Xie Fan flipped his hand before keeping the corpse of that Ant Dragon. He then continued charging forward with the team.
The cultivators had practically charged out of the obstruction by these Ant Dragons in practically two breaths of time. A total of three Ant Dragons died, two at the Middle Stage God Emperor Level, and one at the Late Stage God Emperor Level. The one that Xie Fan killed was a Late Stage God Emperor. The other two Middle Stage God Emperor Ant Dragons were both killed by the team under Daoist Hidden Horizon.
After all, they were primarily escaping out of the blockade and killing those Ant Dragons was done casually on the way. That was why the kill rate was so low!
‘Formidable.’ Daoist Hidden Horizon glanced at Xie Fan.
Each party had their own strengths.
He, Daoist Hidden Horizon, could not compare with Xie Fan in close combat battles. He was only slightly stronger than most Grand Perfection God Emperors. Instead, what Daoist Hidden Horizon was good at is ‘domains’. His domain technique could bring out the innate strengths of the entire team.
‘With Xie Fan around, our hunt for the Mount Primal Chaos Serpent will be much more certain.’ Daoist Hidden Horizon thought.
The team continued flying towards their destination at high speed.
With the help of that cultivator ‘Cheng Yu’, the team cast away those Ant Dragons far away.
“We are out.”
“We have escaped from their blockade.”
“No more dangers now.”
The two cultivators in charge for scouting their surroundings, the gray-robed man and cold golden-armored male, confirmed that they had escaped from the Chaotic Origin Lifeform blockade.
Previously if they were to delay further by fighting back, many more Ant Dragons would have surrounded them, making it very hard to deal with. They would then be doomed!
The most fundamental point to take note when hunting outside the city is never to fight back zealously!
Because there were simply too many Chaotic Origin Lifeforms. If they were to delay long enough, the number of Chaotic Origin Lifeforms would only increase. 100, 200, 500, 1000… if they delayed for a day or two, it was normal for tens of thousands of Chaotic Origin Lifeforms to arrive! By then, no matter how strong the cultivators were, they would definitely die under the onslaught of so many Chaotic Origin Lifeforms.
“Continue advancing forward.”
Daoist Hidden Horizon ordered.
The team’s advancing speed abruptly reduced. A time-space domain once again enveloped the entire team including that strange domain that somehow made the team disappear from the outer world.
This was the best and safest way of advancing!
And it was four hours later that they were discovered once again.
They did not continue fighting zealously. The team continued rushing ahead.
‘This team is very powerful. We don’t seem to encounter any danger along the way. I joined the hunting team firstly, to hunt for food and secondly, to temper myself. But it seems the entire journey is very safe and leisure.’ Xue Ying thought. That’s right too. This team included the team of Daoist Hidden Horizon and the team of Xie Fan as the core. Hence, the overall strength was naturally strong.
“Be careful.” Daoist Hidden Horizon suddenly transmitted to everyone in the team, “There is a large group of ‘Poison Demon Dragon’ numbering around 300 rushing in our direction.”
At that moment, a dimmed gray energy covered the team. The speed of the team once again rose. They did not care about hiding anymore. Instead, they were using the fastest speed to escape.
“More than 300 Poison Demon Dragons?” Many cultivators in the team felt tingling in their hearts.
Poison Demon Dragons were a name given by the cultivators. As different Chaotic Origin Lifeform specialized in different techniques, their degree of threat to the cultivators was different too! The threat that came from the Poison Demon Dragon was on the slightly higher end. More importantly, the number of such dragons they encountered this time was quite large.
If it was most hunting teams, they might see members dying in the battle once they encountered Poison Demon Dragons on the size of more than 300!
Fortunately, this team was sufficiently strong.
“They are here. Be prepared to battle. I hope everyone can work and coordinate well together.” Daoist Hidden Horizon solemnly transmitted.
“Hong, hong, hong, hong, hong, hong…”
A group of figures suddenly appeared north west of them. They were moving incredibly fast. The ‘Poison Demon Dragon’ was entirely in gray. They were like land dragons! Spikes could be seen protruding from their body. They even had huge spikes protruding out in a fan-like shape from their back. Their tails were very long, and were filled with spikes too… glancing at them, Xue Ying could ascertain that there were at 1.81 million spikes on the entire body of the Poison Demon Dragon.
And each spike had ‘concentrated poison’ imbued!
It was a concentrated poison that could cause the expressions of these ordinary Grand Perfection God Emperors to change! It was because of this poison that made the degree of threat of ‘Poison Demon Dragons’ high.
The Poison Demon Dragon that was charging at the forefront emitted a sound.
They were similarly intelligent beings and did not plan to show any mercy to the cultivators.
“Kill.” Suddenly, black-white ribbons appeared on the surface of Daoist Hidden Horizon’s body. These ribbons flew out in all directions, tying around many of those Poison Demon Dragons! Those Poison Demon Dragons that had been restricted abruptly became much slower and weaker.
‘Daoist Hidden Horizon specializes in domain techniques. But he is bloodline cultivator.’ Xue Ying understood from the intelligence that the effectiveness of those black and white ribbons would be kept to a maximum when they entangled around nine enemies at most! Once the number of enemies restricted exceeded nine, the effectiveness of restriction by the ribbons would also continue to decrease.
Many black and white ribbons could be seen scattered across the team.
There was also a black-white ribbon floating around Xue Ying, though it did not restrict the enemies. It would only appear during critical moments to help Xue Ying. After all, when there were too many restricted enemies, the individual strength of each ribbon would weaken.
“Flying Snow Brat, let us come save you.” Xie Fan guffawed. He brought along his team of 15 experts and charged in the direction where Xue Ying was.
As they were all within the team, the sixteen people including Xie Fan had surrounded Xue Ying in an instance.
The 17 of them were gathered together, and this was one-third of the entire team. Hence, more than 100 Poison Demon Dragons had been attracted in their direction.
“Peng peng peng.”
Xie Fan’s team consisted of many experts specializing in different techniques. Some displayed a domain, and some transformed into countless images. Some were emitting sound waves, and some battled directly with the dragons. Some even attacked from a distance away… They were perfectly coordinating with one another. As each individual expert was strong coupled with the help from other members, this team of 16 perfectly countered against the joint attack by that huge group of Poison Demon Dragons! They were filled with a wealth of experience.
As for Xue Ying?
Even though he was in the team too, the group of 16 including Xie Fan did not help Xue Ying at all!
And currently, there were seven Poison Demon Dragons attacking Xue Ying at the same time! It was normal for there to be seven Poison Demon Dragons. An absolute majority of cultivators were also encountering this number, just that the other cultivators had the help of one another. Hence, the pressure they faced was much weaker.
But nobody was helping Xue Ying at all.
‘Perhaps this large group of Poison Demon Dragons might be able to kill him.’ Xie Fan sneered when he saw that. He casually punched out and kill a Late Stage God Emperor Poison Demon Dragon. Another fist forced back a Grand Perfection God Emperor Poison Demon Dragon, forcing it to roll backwards. In the entire battlefield, there was only Xie Fan who could be this tyrannical.
