Chapter 1408 Hunt

 

It seemed as though Dong Wang was more confident than Chen Feng. Chen Feng, though, knew that Dong Wang had some tricks up his sleeve. He also had some experts lurking around, protecting him. Even so, going into the East Extreme Immortal Palace to snatch the items there was likely not that easy. 

That said, with Dong Wang leading the way, they were able to advance smoothly. It did not take long before they arrived before a strange spatial portal. 

“The Immortal Palace of Treasures?” Chen Feng was puzzled.

“Something like that. You will understand soon enough,” Dong Wang said, a beam of light flying out from his hand. Chen Feng’s eyes flashed with light. He could see that the beam of light was a key. 

As expected, after the beam of light entered the spatial portal, mysterious waves of energy spread out and a passageway appeared.

“You really do have some tricks up your sleeve,” Chen Feng said with a chuckle.

“Naturally. I made a lot of preparations before coming here,” Dong Wang said with a somewhat smug tone.

“If so, let’s head in and have a look. I also want to see what kind of treasures are inside the East Extreme Immortal Palace.” Chen Feng nodded.

And so, Chen Feng and Dong Wang entered the spatial passageway at almost the same time.

“A bodily world!” Entering the space, Chen Feng immediately exclaimed.

“It is a bodily world left behind by a Divine Monarch. Naturally, the Divine Monarch has already died. Let me put it this way, the Immortal Palaces of Treasures that we entered in the past were established by Ageless Gold Immortals. Those palaces could only attract some Heavenly Immortals. However, the East Extreme Immortal Palace’s treasure hoards for treasures that are on a higher level are the bodily worlds created by some seniors and experts. If those fellows are still alive, we would not be able to enter so easily,” Dong Wang said, smiling. 

“This should be one of them, no?” Chen Feng said, looking around. 

“Yes.” Dong Wang nodded.

Sou! Sou! Sou! Sou! Sou! Sou!

Several streams of light pierced the sky as they flew forward. Quickly, they arrived before Dong Wang and the rest. The guards had arrived.

“Who? Who dares break into the land of treasures?!” one of the guards shouted. Chen Feng’s eyes narrowed. Surprisingly, the one who spoke up was an Ageless Gold Immortal. 

Interesting. In the past, when I had only just arrived at the Immortal Plane, I would rarely meet a Gold Immortal. But now, just some guards would have the cultivation base of a Gold Immortal. Chen Feng smiled. Naturally, he was not feeling concerned. The strongest amongst the guards was only an Ageless Gold Immortal. Handling them would be very easy. 

“So, it’s Sir Dong Wang.” Quickly, though, the one who spoke up retracted his stance and a smile appeared on his face.

“You’ve had a hard time,” Dong Wang said, nodding. Next, he waved his hand and the ten or so of his subordinates behind him immediately spread out to quickly disappear into their surroundings. Clearly, they had gone off to seek out the treasures there.

“Hey, you fellows!” Some of the guards had wanted to stop them when the leader of their group suddenly radiated with a swift and forceful sword energy. At the same time, two other guards also followed suit. In but half a breath’s worth of time, several of the guards had been killed, leaving only three of them. The three then respectfully moved forward to stand before Dong Wang. 

“Greetings, Sir Dong Wang.” The three of them saluted Dong Wang again. 

Seeing that, Chen Feng was quick to understand. Clearly, these three men were Dong Wang’s men. 

“Good. You fellows made the right choice. I will not mistreat you fellows,” Dong Wang said. 

“We wouldn’t dare.”

“You fellows head out as well. The treasures you obtain will belong to you,” Dong Wang said with a smile. 

Hearing that, a look of joy appeared on the faces of the three cultivators. The three of them had been standing guard over this space. Thus, they were very familiar with the situation here. Nodding their heads, they swiftly flew away. 

Chen Feng waved his hand and the eight cultivators behind him rushed forward. Chen Feng was the only one who remained standing still. 

“Ha ha, looks like Young Master Longevity Celestial does not think highly of the treasures here. According to the information I obtained, this space has some rare divine objects. Some are from chaos space,” Dong Wang said, laughing.

Chen Feng shook his head, not saying anything. That said, he did spread his divine sense outwards to sense everything within this world. 

Quickly, he managed to grasp the power of laws there.

“It truly is a world created by a Divine Monarch. However, for it to exist this long, it must be supported by some treasures,” Chen Feng said with a smile.

“Yes, I believe so too. Whoever finds the treasure will get to keep it,” Dong Wang said before turning around to leave. 

Chen Feng shook his head. He did not utilize the Battler Bug Empress or the combat puppets’ power for this. Instead, he leisurely roamed around. He did not go search for the treasures like the others. Instead, he worked on sensing and analysing the energy waves within this world.

Finally, his eyes lit up and his hand abruptly stretched out to grasp something. The space in front of him began rippling to quickly form a stream of power that flowed over from the distance. Power was constantly extracted from the surrounding space to converge upon the stream of power.  

Swiftly, the stream of power grew from the size of a small river to that of a great river. After that, it shrank rapidly, becoming like a small snake. Chen Feng then grabbed it. 

“A law!” The Battler Bug Empress within his sea of wisdom exclaimed.

“Yes. It is a law. Moreover, it is an Ageless law that the Divine Monarch left behind to support this space.” Chen Feng chuckled. The law then disappeared, melding into his body. After that, Chen Feng felt a connection being formed between him and this world. It was a very mysterious feeling, as though he had been the one who created this world.

“Your cultivation has improved again, Young Master,” the Battler Bug Empress said. 

“My strength has not recovered. That said, I’ve had to face Divine Monarchs and Paramount Gold Immortals so many times, if my strength does not increase from all that, I’d be no different from a normal human,” Chen Feng said with a smile. He stretched his hand to grasp again, causing the entire space to shake. 

A clump of flowing light flew out. The moment it approached Chen Feng, it disappeared, re-appearing within his bodily worlds the very next moment.

Sou! Sou!

Two clumps of flowing light appeared.

Sou! Sou! Sou!

Three clumps of flowing light appeared.

Next, more and more clumps of flowing light appeared.

Every clump of flowing light contained either one or more magic treasures or divine objects. Unlike the others, Chen Feng did not have to labour to find the treasures within this world. Instead, the magic treasures and divine objects kept flying over to strike Chen Feng’s figure, like stars in the sky. 

It did not take long before Chen Feng’s figure became engulfed in what appeared like an ocean of stars. Over a hundred clumps of flowing light would appear with every breath.

Having extracted the law of this world, Chen Feng had practically become the God of this world. He was only a notch inferior compared to the master of this world.

“This fellow! How could he possess such a move?” Naturally, Dong Wang had also noticed what was happening. Speaking of which, Dong Wang had managed to obtain quite the haul here, but it paled in comparison to Chen Feng. At the same time, he also understood how Chen Feng did that.

That being said, understanding how it was done was not the same as being able to replicate it. In Dong Wang’s opinion, even if he were to advance to the Divine Prince level, he would still be incapable of doing that. 

“Sigh, the number one cultivation constitution in the Myriad Celestial Planes indeed.” Dong Wang sighed.

“This has nothing to do with his constitution. It is his soul perception.” A voice suddenly rang out from beside Dong Wang’s ears.

“Yes, I understand,” Dong Wang was quick to say. 

“Found it.” Chen Feng stamped with one foot and the space shook again. Following that, a ferocious and overbearing will surged into the sky and a massive, flaming halberd charged towards Chen Feng. Arriving before Chen Feng, it rapidly shrank to fly into his hand.

“A mid-grade Divine artifact.” Chen Feng frowned before reaching out to tap the flaming halberd in his hand. Next, an even stronger will charged out. 

“It is already infinitely close to the high-grade Divine tier. There are also seals on it. If it weren’t for that, I would not have such an easy time subduing it.” Holding the flaming halberd, Chen Feng swung it a few times and the surrounding space shook. Using it for a moment, Chen Feng gained a precise understanding of the strength of this weapon. 

“Not bad. It is better than most of my magic treasures. It is even slightly better than the Blood Mustering Bead. It has the potential to advance to the high-grade Divine tier. Chen Feng waved his hand and the flaming halberd flew into his hand, disappearing from sight. 

“Sigh!” Dong Wang sighed as he arrived before Chen Feng. 

“I’m having some feelings of regret,” Dong Wang said with a wry smile.

“You’re regretting? With just this?” Chen Feng said with a smile.

“You are too strong.” Dong Wang nodded.

“Is that not a good thing? Didn’t you want to borrow my power?” Chen Feng cast a puzzled look at Dong Wang.

Dong Wang pondered for a moment before saying, “That’s not what I mean. This mission might allow you to increase your strength again. I do not know if this is right or wrong. I do not want to have such a strong enemy like you in the future.”

“A pity, I do not think of you as my opponent,” Chen Feng said with a grin. 

“Well, you do have the capital to display such arrogance,” Dong Wang responded with a wry smile.

“Let’s go.” Chen Feng waved his hand and – one by one – Dao Monarch Hell and the others began returning to stand beside him.

“You have taken away the strongest treasure inside this world. In addition, 80% of the treasures here also fell into your hands. I’m really regretting it right now,” Dong Wang said again. 

Despite saying that, Dong Wang quickly left the world with Chen Feng. They had entered the East Extreme Immortal Palace this time to hunt for treasures. Time was of the essence. 

Chen Feng also knew that, as he had taken away the treasure supporting this world, it would collapse.

“How much do you know about Zhong Huang?” After they left the bodily world, Chen Feng suddenly asked.

“Zhong Huang?” Dong Wang grew puzzled. He did not understand why Chen Feng would ask that.

“I’m just asking. I want to know. The four Wangs and the Huang. I’ve already met two of the four Wangs. So, I wonder. How strong is Zhong Huang?” Chen Feng said, smiling.

“Zhong Huang. He is very strong. If you meet him, you will have to be careful,” Dong Wang said after a moment’s consideration.

“Stronger than you?” Chen Feng asked again.

“Much stronger than me.” Dong Wang nodded.

“You have such a high view of him?” Chen Feng felt somewhat surprised.

“Honestly, I do not know much about Zhong Huang. However, I am certain that even if us four Wangs joined forces, we would still be no match for him. He is someone who can face Divine Monarchs. It is said that he had managed to kill off a Divine Monarch before. Moreover, he is only an Ageless Gold Immortal. Rather, it hadn’t been all that long since he entered the Ageless Gold Immortal stage. It was only a few days earlier than me,” Dong Wang said. 

“I understand.” Chen Feng was truly shocked. The other party was actually capable of killing off a Divine Monarch. If this Zhong Huang had relied on his own strength to accomplish that, he would truly be a Heaven-defying existence. Chen Feng would be no match for him. Naturally, it was also because he had yet to fully recover. By advancing to the Ageless Gold Immortal stage, Chen Feng was confident that killing off a Divine Monarch would not be an issue for him. 

Still, this Zhong Huang is truly formidable. He is a notable character. I will have to experience his strength in the future, Chen Feng thought. 

“By the way, is Zhong Huang the number one genius from your Immortal Court?” Chen Feng suddenly asked.

“That would appear to be the case.” After saying that, Dong Wang fell silent. Chen Feng nodded. He was able to figure something out from that.

The Immortal Court is truly not to be underestimated. I cannot be careless. Chen Feng shook his head before following Dong Wang into another space.

Like the previous space, this one was also a bodily world left behind by a Divine Monarch. However, Chen Feng sensed different energy waves the moment he entered the world.

He was quick to determine that this world was of a slightly higher level than the previous one. At any rate, there were distinctions between Divine Monarchs as well. 

Chi! Chi!

Weng!

Boom! Boom! Boom!

Eight beams of sword energy shot into the sky to envelop Chen Feng and the others. At the same time, a 100-zhang-long astral sword descended upon them. 

“Sword array!” Chen Feng said. It was obvious that things would not be as smooth as last time.

One of the Divine Princes who followed Dong Wang swung his sword and the incoming astral sword was cut to pieces.

“Demon Subduing Sword Array!” Dong Wang said. 

“It’s just eight Ageless Gold Immortals,” Chen Feng said with a snicker.

“Young Master!” The Great Roc of the Nine Heavens stepped forward. The four Divine Princes that Chen Feng brought with him for this trip were the Great Roc of the Nine Heavens, Tempest Tiger, Heaven-strolling Leviathan and the Enigma Phoenix of the Sovereign Fire. They were all unique creatures specializing in speed, possessing highly formidable combat powers. By fighting together, they could face a Divine Monarch in battle. 

“Don’t be anxious. This is a small matter. I believe that Dong Wang will be able to easily deal with it,” Chen Feng said, smiling. 

Hearing those words, Dong Wang said nothing. However, two sword-wielding Divine Princes rushed into the sword array, one from the left and one from the right.

Following that, sword light flared out and intense sounds of collision rang out for a moment before everything concluded. The sword array disappeared.

Of the eight opposing Ageless Gold Immortals, six were killed and two were captured alive. 

“Dong Wang, it really is you! I had long since known that you are an ambitious fellow!” one of the captured Ageless Gold Immortals shouted.

“Every cultivator has their own ambitions. You two are sword cultivators with great futures. Dying here will be a pity. Follow me and I will let you live,” Dong Wang said with a smile.

The two captured Ageless Gold Immortals hesitated for a moment. In the end, they chose to submit to Dong Wang. At the same time, they also made a Heavensdao Oath. 

Chen Feng shook his head. Even under such circumstances, this Dong Wang was thinking of recruiting others to his side. Was he not afraid that some issues might arise from this?

“A few amongst those we killed earlier have clones. Our actions are likely exposed already,” one of the Divine Princes who attacked earlier said. 

“There’s no helping it. We can only speed things up.” Dong Wang sighed. 

Chen Feng said nothing. Instead, he promptly took action. Again, he utilized the same method as last time. Quickly, he extracted a law from the space.

Watching Chen Feng meld with the bodily world, Dong Wang’s eyelids twitched, but there was nothing he could do about it. All he could do was watch as countless treasures flew towards Chen Feng.

“Sigh! I really am suffering from a serious loss this time.” Dong Wang sighed.
