Divine Monarch Blackline and another Divine Monarch warmly received Chen Feng’s team. Given their present situation, it did not matter how many came to support them, support was still support.
Quickly, however, a force consisting of the cultivators from the Celestial Purplesieve Plane and Slaughterers charged towards them. At the van of their charge were over a thousand war chariots. They gave off a very formidable aura as they rampaged their way through the lands of the Celestial Malla Plane.
“Fellows, excuse me.” Divine Monarch Blackline’s face sank and he waved his hand, leading over a thousand cultivators forward and leaving Chen Feng’s team there.
“Looks like we came here at the wrong time,” Chen Feng said with a smile.
“Since we are already here, we cannot just stand by and do nothing,” Divine Monarch Superstrike said, jabbing forward with a finger. A beam of sword light flew out and swirled around. Any enemy soldier that approached them would be killed off.
“Senior Dark Soul, take some men to gather information about Magiris. We’ll stay behind and help.” Chen Feng decided. No matter how you cut it, the Celestial Longevity Plane and the Celestial Malla Plane had something of a good relationship. Since he was already here, he could not simply watch and do nothing.
And so, Divine Prince Dark Soul left with some cultivators. Chen Feng then waved his hand and 3,000 half-step Gold Immortals formed a battle formation and began attacking the enemy soldiers that were beneath the Gold Immortal stage.
The other Gold Immortals also banded together. Chen Feng’s team was not aiming to make any outstanding moves. Instead, they simply killed any enemy soldier that approached them. In large-scale wars such as these, the ones who stand out were the ones who faced the greatest risk. No matter how strong a person may be, there was still the possibility of dying from a siege.
Moreover, Chen Feng also did not wish to openly antagonize the Celestial Purplesieve Plane. At any rate, the Celestial Longevity Plane had enough enemies to deal with at the moment. That said, killing off the Slaughterers was still not an issue for them.
Chen Feng’s divine sense kept spreading into his surroundings. In the end, he sighed to himself. The Celestial Malla Plane was truly in a chaotic state at the moment. The number of Slaughterers on the ground had exceeded one billion. As for the cultivators from the Celestial Purplesieve Plane, they were over a million of them. One third of them possessed genes of the Purple Blood Clan.
The number of Slaughterers is too high. Thankfully, most of them are not even Heavenly Immortals, otherwise none of the Celestial Planes would be able to endure their assault, Chen Feng thought.
Without the attack from the other forces, even if ten billion of these Slaughterers managed to make their way into the Celestial Malla Plane, the Slaughterers would still be easily wiped out. At present, however, the other forces were entangling a major portion of the Celestial Malla Plane’s forces.
“Head to the Blackwater Tribe. Our objective this time is to find Magiris, not to get involved in this war,” Chen Feng ordered.
“Longevity Celestial, do you get the feeling that there are too many Slaughterers? If these Slaughterers are to gather together, they would be able to easily wipe out a Celestial Plane,” Divine Monarch Blackmourn suddenly said.
“It’s nothing surprising. It’s quite simple, actually. The Slaughterers are not all coming from one passageway. If I am not mistaken, there are many passageways leading to other universes in our immortal region,” Chen Feng was quick to reply.
“That may indeed be the case. However, how did the Immortal Court partner up with the Slaughterers? Additionally, there are also the Slaughterers’ actions of partnering up with some other Celestial Planes to attack the other Celestial Planes. I sense that there are some special reasons behind this. More, what about the situation in the other immortal regions?”
“Senior, if even someone like you do not know, then someone like me would know even less. Regardless, the most important thing here is to work hard to improve our own strength. After they are done with the Celestial Malla Plane, our Celestial Longevity Plane will be the next Celestial Malla Plane, maybe worse.” Observing how badly damaged the Celestial Malla Plane had become, Chen Feng became secretly concerned. It could not be helped. The Boundless Corps alone was not strong enough to stop them. In the face of this enemy force, the might of the entire Celestial Longevity Plane was needed.
Even though they were also fighting, Chen Feng’s team would not – unless absolutely necessary – fight against the soldiers from the Celestial Purplesieve Plane. The other party, having noticed that, chose not to stop them.
As a result, the number of Slaughterers that fell to them grew higher and higher. By the time they arrived at the Blackwater Tribe’s territory, they had killed over ten million Slaughterers. Of course, that number was only 1% of all the Slaughterers in the Celestial Malla Plane.
“There are less Slaughterers here.” Chen Feng, assessing their surroundings, dispatched the 3,000 half-step Gold Immortals forward. First, it was to kill off the Slaughterers. Second, it was training for them. These 3,000 half-step Gold Immortals were almost all from the Boundless Corps and the Palace Corps. The cultivators who came together with Chen Feng this time had been carefully selected by Chen Feng himself. Some of them had even served as guards in the Longevity Palace before.
Their formidable combat powers aside, all of them possessed an intense desire for battle. After receiving Chen Feng’s order, they charged, radiating with killing energy.
“Originally, I had come here to stir up some troubles. Unexpectedly, we would encounter something like this. By doing this, we are helping them considerably,” Chen Feng said with a smile.
“Careful!” Suddenly, a warning cry rang out within Chen Feng’s mind. But before he could do anything, Divine Monarch Blackmourn swiftly appeared before him. A white beam of light had suddenly shot out from a chaotic part of space. It was targeting Chen Feng, but Divine Monarch Blackmourn blocked it.
On Divine Monarch Blackmourn’s palm was a circular, palm-sized mirror. The beam of light struck the mirror and part of it was absorbed while another part was deflected. As Chen Feng was close to it, part of the deflected beam of light descended upon his body.
As a result, small holes appeared on the mid-grade Divine-tier Longevity Combat Armour that he wore.
“Formidable!” Chen Feng responded by bringing out the Longevity Bow. Next, an invisible beam of energy shot forward.
As it was already fusing with the Shadowless Bow, the Longevity Bow now possessed the Shadowless Bow’s offensive abilities.
At present, the Longevity Bow’s offensive power was several times greater than before. It would not be an exaggeration to say that the Longevity Bow was the strongest magic treasure in Chen Feng’s arsenal. Even before the bowstring was done stabilizing, a cultivator had been forced out of hiding, screaming as he did. On his chest was a see-through hole. Despite his ageless body, he was incapable of quickly recovering from this wound.
Divine Monarch Blackmourn dashed forward to grab the cultivator.
“So, it’s a Divine Prince from the Holy Light Clan. This fellow is not to be underestimated. Even though there are so many of us here, we actually failed to notice him. I wonder, are you fellows participating in this war? Or are you here after us?” Chen Feng asked.
Divine Monarch Blackmourn had sealed the captured cultivator’s cultivation base, but he continued struggling. After hearing Chen Feng’s question, though, he shut his mouth and said nothing.
“There are more!” Chen Feng then used the Ageless Light to scan his surroundings before pulling the Longevity Bow again and again. Not a single one missed and several more cultivators were struck. Two were killed on the spot while the rest were swarmed and captured by the other Gold Immortals beside Chen Feng.
“Kill them all,” Chen Feng said. There were not too many of them and Chen Feng himself had no interest in speculating if they were here to assassinate him or to participate in this war. Regardless of what their intentions may be, they were his enemies. Killing them off was the most effective thing to do here.
“Dark Soul’s team has encountered trouble,” Divine Monarch Blackmourn suddenly said. Next, Chen Feng received a message from Divine Prince Dark Soul.
The Blackwater Lake was a very large lake in the Celestial Malla Plane. There were several massive spirit veins there, giving it a high concentration of spiritual energy. Additionally, the place also had a type of black, high-grade spirit stone there, the Blackveil Spirit Stone.
By relying on the Blackwater Lake, the Blackwater Tribe was able to slowly make its way to the top ranks of the Celestial Malla Plane, becoming one of the stronger overlords of the world. When compared to the other tribes, the Blackwater Tribe had been growing at an increasing ferocity lately.
At the same time, though, the struggle for power within the Blackwater Tribe became increasingly ferocious and many cultivation geniuses ended up becoming victims. If it weren’t for that, Magiris would not have left the Celestial Malla Plane to develop his own force elsewhere. To put it bluntly, Magiris was kicked out.
Back then, Magiris had received Chen Feng’s support, leading 12 Gold Immortals back with him. He had believed that he would be able to fight for the position of Chieftain of the Blackwater Tribe. To his surprise, other forces had intervened, leading to his failure and capture. That said, the other party did have their scruples about taking action against him and instead only imprisoned him and his subordinates.
Imprisoned, Magiris had first felt somewhat concerned about it. But he knew that Chen Feng would surely come rescue him. Thus, he calmed down and focused on his cultivation
Coincidentally, a large-scale war descended upon the Celestial Malla Plane at the time. Due to that, Magiris, despite his failure to seize power, became more at ease. Only, he remained imprisoned, incapable of leaving.
But as the situation grew more dire, they began releasing some prisoners, turning them into cannon fodder. In the end, even an extraordinary member like Magiris was thrown in. Only, his status was different. Naturally, they could not just turn him and his men into cannon fodder. Even so, joining the battlefield was a necessity. Additionally, for fear of them causing problems, some restrictions were placed on them.
Magiris did not go against the call to battle. This was his homeworld, after all. He was willing to fight to defend his home.
However, Magiris had just joined up with another group of soldiers after his release and was waiting to join the battlefield when Divine Prince Dark Soul and his men arrived.
Afterwards, the two sides failed to come to an agreement and a number of the soldiers from the Malla Corps ended up fighting Divine Prince Dark Soul and his men. Magiris promptly found out that Chen Feng had come. And yet, he could not intervene. He grew so apprehensive that beads of sweat trickled down his forehead.
Upon his arrival, Chen Feng saw that Divine Prince Dark Soul and his men were already surrounded by row after row of soldiers from the Malla Corps. Divine Prince Dark Soul was wounded while some of his subordinates were also either wounded or captured. It would appear that the other party was also holding back, not wanting to escalate the situation.
“Stop it!” Chen Feng shouted, his voice moving forward thunderously. This shout contained the Soul Subduing Technique. As expected, the tens of thousands of cultivators there were momentarily stunned.
Chen Feng did not do anything, but the 200 Gold Immortals behind him did not hold back. They charged forward and the soldiers in their path were all sent flying. Swiftly, they opened a path to rescue Divine Prince Dark Soul and the others.
“Who here can explain the situation to me?” Chen Feng said.
“Who are you people?” A cultivator stepped forward from the Malla Corps, rage in his voice.
