Lord Xue Ying - Chapter 1343
Chapter 1343 – Desperation
Translator: Chaos_ Editor: Chaos_
The battle erupted almost instantaneously.
There were only 32 Mount Primal Chaos Serpents with 15 Grand Perfection God Emperors and the others all Late Stage God Emperors. Xue Ying’s group of cultivators had a total of 47 with Grand Perfection God Emperor combat strength and two Late Stage God Emperor combat strength. Xie Fan and Daoist Hidden Horizon were even one of the few peak experts in Scarlet Cloud City. Furthermore, the cultivators were able to coordinate well with one another as well.
They merely had some slight advantage on the battlefield.
“Brother Flying Snow, let us help you.”
“Don’t be afraid. There’s us.”
Xie Fan and his team of cultivators remained encircled around Xue Ying. They were fighting with the Mount Primal Chaos Serpents while at the same time, deliberately indulging in the ‘Mount Primal Chaos Serpents’; they did not help Xue Ying at all.
A ‘Grand Perfection God Emperor’ Mount Primal Chaos Serpent was currently embroiled in a battle with Xue Ying.
‘This is a Mount Primal Chaos Serpent? It is indeed extraordinary.’ Xue Ying did not become furious. Instead, he was delighted.
He came out of the city primarily to temper himself!
This Mount Primal Chaos Serpent had an illusory body. It easily wrapped around Xue Ying.
As it was illusory, one could not touch the body of that Mount Primal Chaos Serpent at all. It felt like non-existent. But when that illusory body wrapped itself around Xue Ying, Xue Ying felt the suppression in the surrounding world becoming significantly stronger. As a result, his strength had been weakened by half.
“Si~ Cultivators, die!” The Mount Primal Chaos Serpent had two heads. One of its head was like a stone as it charged forward with an abnormally terrifying power. As for the other head, it was lit with black light. As it moved, it’s speed was so fast it formed many after-images. Every time it widened its maw, Xue Ying was so frightened by it that he had to execute his spear techniques to parry against that incoming maw. Xue YIng did not dare to be bitten at all.
Of the two snake heads the Mount Primal Chaos Serpent had, one was as heavy as a mountain and so tough it could not be damaged. The other was sinister and filled with poison. If a Grand Perfection God Emperor cultivator got bitten by it, half the cultivator’s life would be gone. A few more bites and the cultivator would likely die.
This Mount Primal Chaos Serpent…
Could not be touched or injured.
One of its two snake heads was like a mountain and could not be damaged! At least no cultivator now had the strength to break this ‘stone head’ a Grand Perfection God Emperor Mount Primal Chaos Serpent had. The only possible way to kill it was via the other ‘poisonous head’. The poisonous head contained the life core of a Mount Primal Chaos Serpent. By destroying its poisonous head and breaking apart its life core, the Mount Primal Chaos Serpent would die.
Xue Ying had been restricted by the illusory body of the serpent, causing his strength to drop by nearly half. As he faced the onslaught by the two snake heads, Xue Ying had barely resisted against them.
‘This is just one Mount Primal Chaos Serpent. Fortunately, the defenses of my spear techniques are quite tight, allowing me to hold my ground albeit barely.’ Xue Ying did not dare to be too careless. He executed all the spear techniques he had with all his strength.
As for killing it?
He did not have any thought of killing it at all.
Even the cultivator with the strongest offense present on the battlefield, ‘Xie Fan’, could kill some of the Grand Perfection God Emperor Chaotic Origin Lifeforms with weaker survival capabilities. As for a Grand Perfection God Emperor ‘Mount Primal Chaos Serpent’, they had to work together to kill it!
At this moment, Daoist Hidden Horizon was working with a total of 11 other cultivators in fighting against a Mount Primal Chaos Serpent. The other members of his team were currently holding back all other Mount Primal Chaos Serpents so as to ensure there was a good environment in dealing against the serpent.
12 of them worked together.
Daoist Hidden Horizon had unleashed his black-white domain in suppressing against that single Mount Primal Chaos Serpent while the other cultivators were attacking it with all their power.
A lightning sword struck downwards.
“Hou~” An enormous head illusion appeared, roaring out angrily. As it roared, it produced a shockwave that shot down at the Mount Primal Chaos Serpent.
Various attacks descended.
That surrounded Mount Primal Chaos Serpent could still move around. Its illusory body obstructed its surroundings, reducing the force of those incoming attacks. Its invulnerable ‘stone head’ had also become bigger, swallowing that ‘poisonous head’ into it! With one head biting the other… it created a chain.
Daoist Hidden Horizon and the others could continue sending tremors and force down through the stone head in a bid to destroy that ‘poisonous head’ within it.
The 12 cultivators had already prepared for it, yet when they executed their plan, they still felt it was a challenging task.
“It is simply too difficult to kill.”
“It’s Primal Chaos Body could easily dissipate a majority of our attacks.”
“There is still that undying stone head protecting that poisonous head.”
Fortunately, Daoist Hidden Horizon and other cultivators could sense that they were damaging that hidden ‘poisonous head’. The injuries of this Mount Primal Chaos Serpent was getting more and more serious. And it was due to this factor that they had the confidence to continue.
“Hidden Horizon, that closest 69 Mount Primal Chaos Serpents are currently rushing over. They are getting closer and closer. I am afraid that we do not have sufficient time to kill a Mount Primal Chaos Serpent before they arrive.”
“Hidden Horizon, why not ask Xie Fan for help?”
Daoist Hidden Horizon became anxious when he heard the transmissions from his comrades.
The moment those 69 Mount Primal Chaos Serpents arrive, the number of Mount Primal Chaos Serpents here would rise to 101 of them! Even though their team could still resist against the serpents, they would definitely be on the disadvantaged side! And this was only the nearest wave of enemies. There were still many other waves of Mount Primal Chaos Serpents rushing their way over.
“Xie Fan.” Daoist Hidden Horizon transmitted.
“Why? You can’t handle it and are finding me for help?” Xie Fan transmitted with a weird smile.
“What are the conditions.” Daoist Hidden Horizon asked.
“Previously, you have been interfering in my plot to kill that Flying Snow!” Xie Fan transmitted with a sneer.
“I can promise you that I’ll stop helping him.” Daoist Hidden Horizon transmitted over. This Mount Primal Chaos Serpent involved his cultivation. He had to get it.
Xie Fan transmitted in reply: “We haven’t really met any great danger on the way here. If our journey back is similar to our journey here, even if you don’t help him, he might still survive. Furthermore, he’ll only be losing one helping hand if you don’t help him… this isn’t sufficient for me to act for you.”
“What are your conditions. Just state them directly.” Daoist Hidden Horizon transmitted hurriedly.
“Two Grand Perfection God Emperor Chaotic Origin Lifeforms.” Xie Fan transmitted back.
“You…” Daoist Hidden Horizon was inwardly furious, “I can give you a million cubic meters of food. This is my highest limit.”
He had accumulated slightly less riches.
He merely had a total of three Grand Perfection God Emperor Chaotic Origin Lifeform corpses! But this time once he succeeded in the hunt, he would definitely be selecting the Mount Primal Chaos Serpent. He had to make up for the other 50 cultivators in the team. And that in itself would require him to bring out all three Grand Perfection God Emperor Chaotic Origin Lifeform corpses he had.
Because one Mount Primal Chaos Serpent was usually equivalent to three other Chaotic Origin Lifeforms of the same level!
“One million cubic meters? Are you insulting me?” Xie Fan sneered.
“How about one Grand Perfection God Emperor Chaotic Origin Lifeform? I’ll owe you that temporarily and find another chance to procure one for you.” Daoist Hidden Horizon transmitted.
“Just one of it? And you are thinking of giving it to me in the future? In my opinion, you can slowly kill that serpent yourself.” Xie Fan sneered. Because Daoist Hidden Horizon had helped Xue Ying previously, incurring his dislike. Furthermore, the conditions provided by Daoist Hidden Horizon were simply too low!
Even though Daoist Hidden Horizon was indignant, he could do nothing about it. He could only continue striking that Mount Primal Chaos Serpent with all his strength.
“Hurry up and help me!”
This Mount Primal Chaos Serpent was starting to ask for help.
At that moment, the other Mount Primal Chaos Serpents were rushing their way over. Even that serpent which was originally attacking Xue Ying, had immediately threw Xue Ying aside and charged towards Daoist Hidden Horizon.
“Xie Fan, you all should not watch by the side either!”
Those in the team of Daoist Hidden Horizon were starting to get anxious. Xue Ying and the other lone cultivators naturally went to lend a helping hand. As for Xie Fan and his team of cultivators, they merely sneered in response, though they had to act and deal against those Mount Primal Chaos Serpents too.
Xie Fan’s team of cultivators were merely leisurely striking out at the lifeforms.
“Xie Fan, there are still 69 other Mount Primal Chaos Serpents rushing their way over. I hope for you to help me once.”
“So what if they come? As for helping you? Two Grand Perfection God Emperor Chaotic Origin Lifeform corpses.” Xie Fan sneered. He was even hoping for the situation to get more dangerous! Even if all 69 of them came, he was confident of surviving. By then when the number of Mount Primal Chaos Serpent crossed 100, that ‘Monarch Flying Snow’ would definitely die.
When that happened, wouldn’t all the savings in the storage treasure of Monarch Flying Snow land in their hands?
Even though Monarch Flying Snow died in battle, his treasures would be considered the spoils of war for the entire team. But Xie Fan had a total of 16 people on his side. According to the contribution of this journey, they might perhaps be entitled to half the rewards.
‘Come on, come on.’
Xie Fan looked forward to it.
“Kill those cultivators!”
The distant group of Mount Primal Chaos Serpents broke through the sky and let out a heaven-shaking roar.
A total of 69 of them charged in. Their power was heaven-shaking.
The moment they joined the battle, the situation of the entire battlefield flipped!
Xie Fan and his group of cultivators were doing their utmost to defend against the onslaught. The 16 of them were still encircled around Xue Ying albeit they did not help him at all.
“He is doomed.”
“This Flying Snow is most likely about to die.” Those lone cultivators were working together. They did not dare to participate in the conflict. They were originally weak, and if they were to help Xue Ying? Perhaps they might die.
“Flying Snow, I can no longer help you. You should be a little more careful.” Daoist Hidden Horizon transmitted.
He had no choice.
The current situation for Daoist Hidden Horizon was getting worse and worse.
Because they were currently attacking that single Mount Primal Chaos Serpent which was constantly calling out for help, drawing in more than half the Mount Primal Chaos Serpents present over in their directions. At this moment, Daoist Hidden Horizon was incredibly nervous. He was controlling his black-white domain with utmost effort. The black-white ribbons spread out and continued shackling around those Mount Primal Chaos Serpents so as to delay more time.
“He did not have the help of any other comrades.”
“He seems to have been forsaken.”
“Kill him first.”
Those Mount Primal Chaos Serpents were incredibly intelligent too, especially so for that huge group of Mount Primal Chaos Serpents that were currently attacking Xie Fan and his team of 15 other cultivators. They had discovered that Xue Ying were left alone. Immediately, three Grand Perfection God Emperor Mount Primal Chaos Serpents went to attack Xue Ying.
They were too lazy to care about the internal conflict between the cultivators… as long as they could kill a cultivator, it would make them feverish.
Just like how the cultivators were killing the Chaotic Origin Lifeforms for food.
The Chaotic Origin Lifeforms were similarly filled with desire to kill the cultivators.
“Peng, peng, peng.”
Xue Ying had a taxing time dealing with one single Mount Primal Chaos Serpent previously. At this moment when three Grand Perfection God Emperor Mount Primal Chaos Serpents were rushing his way, he had almost instantaneously been forced into desperation.
