In the Heavenly Fiend Ancient Diagram in the sky.
Xia Qian looked at a certain place in Qingzhou. Just a moment ago, he felt a faint palpitation.
However, it dissipated immediately.
He knew that the faint palpitation was not an illusion because he would no longer have illusions at this point.
Looking at the four people who were still fighting with Gu Jianxian, Xia Qian criticized them for being good-for-nothings.
The four of them actually failed to subdue Gu Jianxian.
Xia Qian was ready to strike and take down Gu Jianxian.
Now that he showed up, the entire cultivation world would not let him off.
He knew that the Heavenly Supervisory was already engaging all the forces to search for him.
Gu Jianxian was the leader of the Itinerant Cultivators Alliance who had the top combat force in the cultivation world. If Xia Qian could get rid of him now, it would be great.
Xia Qian walked out from the Heavenly Fiend Ancient Diagram and his body was really majestic. His messy hairs flew around and the black lotus in the center of his forehead was dark. He held onto the Ten Thousand Fiend Banner and was truly hair-raising.
No one would be able to associate Xia Qian with the previous crown prince of the Great Xia Dynasty.
He was now a fiend.
“What a wastrel!”
Xia Qian humphed coldly when he saw the four cult masters. He humphed coldly and the Ten Thousand Fiend Banner moved in his hand before slashing towards Gu Jianxian.
In an instant, there was a strong gust of wind and the sounds of shrieks and wailing filled the air together with the demonic aura. It was as if there was an apocalypse.
The demonic aura turned into resentful dragons that charged towards Gu Jianxian, wiping out the Sword Qi in a bid to devour him.
The sky collapsed and the sun and moon reversed while ferocious flames filled the air. The Resentment Dragon drowned Gu Jianxian, causing the Ten Nations and the entire Great Xia Dynasty to shake violently.
Gu Jianxian, who initially had the upper hand against the four cult masters, was now finding it a little hard to resist.
Clearly, Gu Jianxian had now lost the upper hand.
Xia Qian was terrifyingly powerful.
If they fought one-on-one, Gu Jianxian would still be able to fight, but in this situation, he was helpless.
That made many, who were confident about Gu Jianxian fighting four enemies alone, horrified and hopeless.
However, Gu Jianxian nevertheless shone gloriously despite being faced with so many enemies alone.
He was covered in fresh blood that turned into blood swords that slashed towards Xia Qian and the others. However, when his breath was weakening, his shoulders, chest, and organs were severely damaged.
At the same time, there were fluctuations in the void outside the Ten Nations and several figures appeared.
It was Xiao Muxue who had rushed over with several powerhouses.
“Alliance Leader Gu!”
When they arrived, they saw Gu Jianxian, who was besieged and covered in blood, through the Heavenly Fiend Ancient Diagram.
At this rate, it probably wouldn’t take long for Gu Jianxian to die.
“Attack, break the Heavenly Fiend Ancient Diagram!”
Xiao Muxue immediately instructed everyone to attack.
Now that the Heavenly Fiend Ancient Diagram had locked onto heaven and earth, there was no way they could charge in.
“Nine Blazing Suns!”
“Divine Turtle Sea Suppression Technique!”
“Great Void Hand Seal!”
“King Cauldron Suppression!”
“Great Annihilation Technique.”
The terrifying lethal moves were released in unison and bombarded the Heavenly Fiend Ancient Diagram, causing it to tremble violently. The entire Ten Nations seemed to be on the verge of collapsing.
“It’s coming quite quickly.”
Xia Qian immediately detected it and his tone was indifferent.
He dared to create such a scene because he had long guessed that the Heavenly Supervisory would attack, so he had already gotten prepared.
In an instant, there were lots of shrieks and wailing while a hideous face appeared on the Heavenly Fiend Ancient Diagram.
‘What’s going on?’
“Watch out, these faces have an ominous aura on them!”
“It’s the Heavenly Fiend of the Heavenly Fiend Ancient Diagram!”
Looking at the hideous faces that appeared on the Heavenly Fiend Ancient Diagram, someone immediately spoke up.
Before they could finish, the hideous faces on the Heavenly Fiend Ancient Diagram turned into Heavenly Fiends that charged towards everyone in a terrifying manner.
“Attack, these are just ordinary Heavenly Fiends! Xia Qian is just trying to stall for time!”
Xiao Muxue did not hesitate to make her decision.
Numerous Heavenly Fiends flew out of the Heavenly Fiend Ancient Diagram incessantly, resulting in a chaotic scene.
However, the vast majority of them were only at the Foundation Establishment realm, and to them, even power of the Golden Core realm was not considered strong at all.
However, Heavenly Fiends were very difficult to deal with as they could easily invade one’s mind and essence soul. If one was careless, they would get attacked easily.
Everyone attacked and sacrificed all sorts of Dharma treasures to suppress the Heavenly Fiends.
The Heavenly Fiends seemed to be infinite in number as the treasures seemed to be unable to kill them. That made them panic.
In the Ten Nations, Gu Jianxian was obviously barely hanging on and would probably die soon.
Xia Qian’s strength was also extremely terrifying, and as time passed, Xia Qian would only get more and more scary. By then, they wouldn’t have any more hope.
“Everyone, don’t panic. The most powerful of these Heavenly Fiends are only at the Nascent Soul realm. There’s just a lot of them and Xia Qian’s goal is to stall for time.”
“If we keep delaying like this, we will definitely lose when he revives.”
Xiao Muxue took a deep breath, cast a Sound Wave Dharmic Dao, and took control.
“We’ll follow your arrangements.”
“Yeah, what should we do now!?!”
Someone agreed with Xiao Muxue.
Everyone else nodded along because they knew that the situation was indeed like that.
“Alright.” Xiao Muxue nodded and immediately said.
“Perfected Ziyun, Perfected Tianxuan, Daoist Si Hai, Householder Shanhe… Lead ten Essence Soul realm cultivators each and form a line of defense and block the Heavenly Fiends. The remaining cultivators, retreat by 100 feet and attack the Heavenly Fiend Ancient Diagram together!”
“If there’s anyone who’s proficient in array formations and can tell the flaws in this ancient diagram, please inform me immediately.”
Xiao Muxue said and immediately made arrangements.
The cultivators of the Heavenly Supervisory whose names she called formed the first line of defense without any objection.
“Yes! We obey the orders!”
“Yes! We obey the orders!”
The cultivators spoke up and attacked immediately. No one dared to be careless.
Those who were qualified to take part in this battle were all aware of the importance of this matter. If they waited until Xia Qian revived, they would all die.
Various Dharmic Dao sounded and endless rays of light emerged, blasting at the Heavenly Fiend Ancient Diagram.
There were obvious effects.
The Heavenly Fiend Ancient Diagram would be broken in at most three days.
However, everyone had a grim expression because three days was way too long for them.
The Ten Nations would probably be wiped out in less than three days. Even if Xia Qian hadn’t been revived by then, he would definitely have reached a terrifying state.
They couldn’t resist him at all.
Besides, Gu Jianxian was now fighting with Xia Qian and the others in the ancient painting today. If Gu Jianxian was defeated, Xia Qian would take control of the ancient painting again. They wanted to break the Heavenly Fiend Ancient Diagram, but it wasn’t that simple to do so.
“Don’t hold back, attack immediately!”
Xiao Muxue immediately shouted.
Since they managed to make it so far, they definitely had trump cards.
At this moment, Xiao Muxue was the first to give orders. With a wave of her hand, a jade token appeared immediately with endless rays of divine light that suppressed the mountains and rivers across 5,000 kilometers, directly blasting at the Heavenly Fiend Ancient Diagram.
It was a terrifying immortal artifact.
When they saw that, they also gritted their teeth and sacrificed their trump cards.
At the same time…
In the Heavenly Fiend Ancient Diagram, Gu Jianxian’s strength had already declined and his bones could be seen from various spots of his body.
It was already a miracle that he could sustain for so long against five opponents.
Gu Jianxian knew that if it went on, he would die immediately.
He wanted to release his last sword move.
“Sun, moon, stars, mountains, grass, wood, everything in the world. Sword!”
Gu Jianxian hollered loudly as his bones trembled and Sword Qi rushed into the sky, slashing across with endless menace.
He used himself as a guide and everything in the world as a sword.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
In an instant, heaven and earth changed in color, thunder appeared in the void, a strong gust of wind blew, and an unparalleled force was condensed from the great mountains and rivers.
The power surrounded Gu Jianxian, making him turn into a supreme divine sword while billions of rays of sword light emerged, making the stars pale in comparison.
Everyone was shocked by the sword. Even though they were separated by the Heavenly Fiend Ancient Diagram, the other powerhouses could sense the supreme sword intent.
It was too extraordinary.
Gu Jianxian slashed at Xia Qian with his body full of power.
The Sword Qi drowned out everything in this world and Gu Jianxian’s unprecedented power erupted.
It was terrifying!
It was way too terrifying!
The four cult masters felt a strong sense of crisis after seeing that sword.
Xia Qian let go of the Ten Thousand Fiend Banner and held onto the All-Immortal Devourer. The power erupted maniacally while demonic aura spread around, slashing towards Gu Jianxian rapidly like a true Fiendcelestial.
Although the Ten Thousand Fiend Banner was powerful, its forte was not combat.
The heaven and earth shook with a shocking sound, causing a massive mushroom-shaped cloud to appear in the void.
Under the strike, Xia Qian’s body was covered in cracks and his bones were exposed. The injuries were extremely terrifying.
After Gu Jianxian struck, all his power was depleted and it began falling from the void.
“Alliance Leader Gu!”
Inside and outside of the Heavenly Fiend Ancient Diagram, everyone’s expression changed drastically because they knew that Gu Jianxian wouldn’t be able to escape the ordeal.
Within the entire Ten Nations, there were no powerhouses who could attack and rescue Gu Jianxian.
After all, in the Ten Nations, the Nascent Soul realm powerhouses were already strong enough.
There were only a few Essence Soul realm cultivators, how could anyone save Gu Jianxian?
“Your sword move is very powerful, but it’s impossible if you want to kill me.”
At this moment, Xia Qian’s expression was extremely menacing and terrifying.
His body was now full of demonic aura and his wounds were healing rapidly at a speed that was visible to the naked eye.
Xia Qian was a demon seed and the characteristics after his revival were bred from the evilness of heaven and earth. If it was not suppressed by Heaven and Earth, there was no way he could be annihilated at all!
However, the blow had severely injured him and he had to consume a lot of energy to recover from his injuries.
When everyone saw this scene, their expressions changed even more drastically.
He couldn’t even be killed by such a terrifying strike.
Xia Qian looked at the falling Gu Jianxian and waved his hand, after which a demonic light shot towards Gu Jianxian to annihilate him.
At this moment, a divine light shot up into the sky from the Supreme Demon Hall, causing the sky to be full of stars, overshadowing the effects of the Heavenly Fiend Ancient Diagram.
Afterwards, a god-like figure with three flowers on his head appeared on a divine elephant, with the five spirits surrounding him in a terrifying manner.
The god-like figure charged into the void and punched the demonic light, protecting the severely wounded Gu Jianxian.
Gu Jianxian, who only had consciousness left, couldn’t help but call out when he saw the figure in front of him.
However, in an instant, he realized that the figure in front of him was not Su Changyu.
It seemed to be Su Changyu’s Junior Brother, Xu Luochen.
‘Isn’t he a good-for-nothing?’
Gu Jianxian thought.
“You’re Second Senior Brother?”
“It’s Senior Brother Luochen!”
“This is Exalted Immortal Luochen!”
On the rear cliff, Wang Zhuoyu, Xue Zhuan, Lin Bei, and Da Xu couldn’t help but be stunned and overwhelmed with disbelief when they saw the god-like figure in the void.
‘What’s going on?’
They heard from Da Xu about how impressive Daoist Tai Hua and Su Changyu were.
They wouldn’t be that shocked if they hadn’t seen it in person.
The good-for-nothing, whom they had grown up together with, had now become such an impressive figure. It was just too shocking.
In particular, Lin Bei was already at a loss for words as he squatted down quietly.
Previously, he felt a little awkward when he saw Wang Zhuoyu and Xue Zhuan attack.
‘Seems like I’m the only good-for-nothing in the Qingyun Dao Sect.’
However, he comforted himself that there was still someone like him, and that was Xu Luochen.
After all, he knew that Ye Ping and Chen Lingrou should be more impressive than him.
However, it was too ridiculous.
Outside the Heavenly Fiend Ancient Diagram.
Everyone couldn’t help but be excited when they saw the godlike Xu Luochen attacking.
Xiao Muxue was confused, dumbfounded, and full of disbelief.
“What’s going on?”
‘Where am I?’
‘Previously, Su Changyu had already taken her by surprise.’
‘Now, Xu Luochen has become impressive too.’
‘Are they really the good-for-nothings of the Qingyun Dao Sect whom I know?’
Xu Luochen’s white robe was fluttering and his appearance and aura were extraordinary. His body even seemed to be glazed with a layer of light.
If Su Changyu was like a peerless immortal, Xu Luochen would be an immortal.
He was like a deity from the Nine Heavens who descended on the mortal world.
Xiao Muxue was dumbfounded.
At this moment, Xu Luochen became the center of attention as all eyes were on him.
He was simply too extraordinary as his glory was unforgettable.
“Who are you?”
Xia Qian asked with a grim expression.
He didn’t expect that Gu Jianxian was not the only powerhouse hidden in the Ten Nations.
It was just ridiculous!
At least, he knew Gu Jianxian. However, he had never seen Xu Luochen before.
He wondered where Xu Luochen came from.
Xu Luochen immediately spoke up.
“Are you worthy enough?”
Xu Luochen said in an indifferent voice.
Everyone was astonished after hearing her words.
No one knew what to say at this point.
‘He… is a little too arrogant, isn’t he?’
In this situation, they were one against five on Xia Qian’s turf. Yet, Xu Luochen gave such an arrogant reply.
‘Damn it, he’s pretending to be so impressive, eh?’
“You must have a death wish!”
Looking at Xu Luochen’s posture and calm tone, Xia Qian’s heart was full of anger.
Besides, the latter’s supreme aura and indifferent tone reminded him of someone.
They were really similar to each other now.
“You can come and try. Even if I’m carrying the Heavenly Fiend Ancient Diagram in one hand and protecting Old Gu with my other, I will still be unparalleled in this world!”
Xu Luochen looked calm, his tone still indifferent and aloof.
His tone was exactly like that of Su Changyu when he was pretending to be impressive.
It actually felt like a thrill to him.
Everyone was dumbfounded.
‘Even if he’s carrying the Heavenly Fiend Ancient Diagram in one hand and protecting Old Gu with his other, he will still be unparalleled in this world?’
‘Who is this mighty figure?’
‘Xu Luochen? I’ve never heard of him before.’
He was really boasting too much.
However, everyone knew that Xu Luochen was powerful because he used endless stars to cover up the Heavenly Fiend Ancient Diagram, and thus, the blood sacrifice could not continue.
His method was really terrifying.
In the Supreme Demon Hall, the Fiend Lord looked at the sky with a gratified smile, pleased with Xu Luochen’s performance.
“No wonder he’s my son, his glory is unparalleled.”
The Fiend Lord said while staring at Xu Luochen’s back.
After Xu Luochen completed his fate reversal and learned about the situation, he charged and attacked immediately.
The Fiend Lord just had to be on standby for him.
The Fiend Lord naturally wouldn’t say anything much and he merely told Xu Luochen to be careful, and that he would intervene if Xu Luochen encountered any danger.
“Sure, okay, I shall see how invincible you are!”
Xia Qian was enraged.
He was talking to Xu Luochen properly, but the latter was putting on airs, which truly irked him and made him hate him as much as he hated Su Changyu.
In an instant, his anger erupted in his chest like a volcano.
Boom! Boom! Boom!
The Ten Thousand Fiend Banner in Xia Qian’s hand charged towards Xu Luochen and the magical light blasted the hundreds of mountains.
The four masters of the cult continued to control the All-Immortal Devourer while besieging Xu Luochen.
Xu Luochen didn’t have any Dharma treasures and was merely using his physical body to fight. His punches were crystalline and they seemed to contain the divine runes of the Great Dao. He was surrounded by the five sacred beasts and exuding the aura of a Mahayana realm cultivator.
The great battle erupted in an extremely terrifying manner.
Xia Qian didn’t hold back and a terrifying Fiendcelestial shadow appeared, shaking stars.
He had suffered a severe blow by Gu Jianxian’s sword.
Xu Luochen was just as extraordinary as he struck with both his fists and the True Dragon, White Tiger, Vermilion Bird, Black Tortoise, and Qilin turned into a ray of divine light with terrifying power.
The two parties fought and the vast energy drowned out everything while the void exploded and collapsed continuously.
Outside the Heavenly Fiend Ancient Diagram, Xiao Muxue and the others returned to their senses and immediately bombarded the Heavenly Fiend Ancient Diagram in a bid to break it.
As the battle continued, Xia Qian sulked. When fighting with Gu Jianxian previously, the Heavenly Fiend Ancient Diagram and the Ten Thousand Fiend Banner were still continuously sacrificing the living beings of the Ten Nations, allowing him to improve.
However, the Heavenly Fiend Ancient Diagram was now covered by Xu Luochen, making it impossible for him to draw in more power.
If this stalemate continued, he would definitely be defeated once Xiao Muxue and the others broke the Heavenly Fiend Ancient Diagram.
Although he wasn’t dead, he was still worried about something.
At this point, Su Changyu hadn’t appeared yet.
The unknown was the most terrifying.
Xia Qian’s expression was sullen and he never expected that a powerhouse like Xu Luochen would suddenly appear again.
He could tolerate Gu Jianxian’s presence, but Xu Luochen’s appearance had completely thwarted his plans.
If he didn’t sever things when necessary, chaos would ensue.
In that case!
Xia Qian’s eyes turned red and he whistled.
“Gates of Hell, open!”
Xia Qian hollered and the Fiendcelestial shadow suddenly appeared behind him, making heaven and earth shudder while endless demonic aura spread.
Immediately afterwards, a door appeared behind him.
The door was a thousand feet wide and it looked extremely terrifying with evilness revolving around it, as well as Inauspicious Qi of death, despair, and destruction.
The roar of endless demons sounded at the door.
At the same time…
Outside the East Ocean Dragon Palace.
Ye Ping stood in the void. At this moment, he was extraordinary as a Great Dao Green Lotus appeared. Behind the Green Lotus, there were three supreme essence souls.
One was holding the divine sword.
One was holding a walking stick.
One was holding a horsetail whisk.
There was a Dao flower condensed above the head of each essence soul.
Three flowers gathered above the heads of the Three Pure Ones.
Through the Heavenly Dao Altar, Ye Ping sacrificed all the treasures, making his cultivation level reach the Major Perfection of the Essence Soul realm.
Ye Ping looked at the gray clouds in the sky fearlessly.
He was now going to go through the Tribulation Transcendence, and he broke through from the Major Perfection of the Essence Soul realm to the Tribulation Transcendence realm.
The gray clouds brewed and several Thunder Dragons appeared, making them frightened.
The thunder rumbled and spread throughout millions of kilometers. Countless people heard the shocking sound of thunder.
A thunderbolt of ten thousand feet fell directly and blasted at Ye Ping.
“Why is this Thunder Tribulation so large? Is it because my cultivation level increased too quickly?”
Ye Ping couldn’t help but murmur to himself when he saw that thunderbolt.
The Thunder Tribulation that he encountered previously was nothing compared to this.
However, he wasn’t afraid at all. Instead, he even showed excitement and joy because his Supreme Godfiend body was only one step away from breaking through to the Great Dao Godfiend Body.
That would be a qualitative change.
If it was an ordinary Thunder Tribulation. it wouldn’t allow him to break through that realm at all.
Now that the Thunder Tribulation landed on Ye Ping’s body, the blood and Qi in him rolled and tumbled.
“Using heaven and earth as a furnace, use the Thunder Tribulation as a hammer!”
Ye Ping used the infinite Thunder Tribulation to temper his physical body while guiding the Thunder Tribulation to cultivate the Torch Dragon Immortal Apertures.
The second Thunder Tribulation landed with a horrifying Thunder Dragon.
When it landed, it turned into a sea of thunder that downed Ye Ping.
Ye Ping’s figure seemed extremely tiny in the sea of thunder.
However, at the same time, an extremely terrifying aura emitted from Ye Ping’s body, which made others feel that it could shake the world despite its tiny size.
That was the process of his metamorphosis towards the Great Dao Godfiend Body.
Immediately afterwards, thunderstorms fell, each one incredibly exaggerated.
Ye Ping was submerged in the sea of thunder and bearing with it continuously. His flesh was badly mangled and his golden bones were revealed. They seemed to have been cast with divine iron that was sturdy and strong in the sea of thunder.
The thunder sounded like the roars of dragons and tigers.
It was the prototype of the Great Dao Godfiend body, which was extremely terrifying. Even Tribulation Transcendence cultivators would not be able to hurt him with all their might.
However, that wasn’t enough.
It was only the prototype that had become the Great Dao Godfiend body.
The endless thunderstorms turned into nutrients that nourished Ye Ping’s body continuously.
A day passed and finally the Thunder Tribulation vanished after 81 thunderbolts.
However, the thunder sea was still present, though it was gradually dissipating and Ye Ping’s figure was revealed.
Every inch of Ye Ping’s body seemed to be forged with Immortal Gold and Divine Metal.
Tribulation Transcendence realm!
Great Dao Godfiend Body!
At this moment, there was a qualitative change in Ye Ping’s body.
“Eldest Senior Brother told me to open this letter when I’m about to leave.”
Ye Ping finally opened the letter that Su Changyu had given him.
