Chapter 1370: Messy Melee

Wu Yu naturally knew that the immortal design blind spot was the design of the creator.

Otherwise, this group of people would truly stand no chance in obtaining the ninth-grade Mark of an Immortal King.

Of course, this chance would never have been discovered if the immortal king puppet had continued to remain entrenched in the pit.

A few years had passed that way. The Dancing Flame Phoenix Lord would never have guessed that the eighth-grade Mark of an Immortal King could actually lure it out.

Before this, she had actually seen others try a sixth-grade Mark of an Immortal King, but to no avail.

Why would the immortal king puppet be drawn to an eighth-grade Mark of an Immortal King? There was no logic to it, besides the arbitrary discretion of the creator. He wanted those who fought this immortal king puppet to be qualified to obtain an eighth-grade Mark of an Immortal King at least.

Otherwise, they would not have gone down this train of thought. As it was, they had spent years before being able to lure it out.

And now, the remaining 100-odd immortal lords, basically all 9-realm immortal lords, were attacking the immortal king puppet from all sides!

The activation rate of the immortal king puppet's three great immortal designs increased drastically!

Nine Harmonies of a Thousand Worlds boomed out its mesmerizing rhythm and assaulted their ears. It was like knives cutting into their bodies. Those who were too weak to stand up to it had died long ago.

As for the Infinite Stars and Swords Design, it continued to project around the immortal king puppet. 10,000 points of starlight surrounded the diamond spider, and they continued to flip and move aggressively, turning to any who neared. It was like a shadow following the body, and continued to fire abyssal sword qi, which was devastatingly powerful even against 9-realm immortal lords. They were forced to defend against Nine Harmonies of a Thousand Worlds while dodging abyssal sword qi blasts. Finally, when the immortal king puppet sensed danger, it would unleash the Imperial Darklight of the Higher Heavens, cloaking the field. The closer you were to the immortal king puppet, the hotter you would burn. This was the reason why no one had managed to reach the blind spot on the immortal king puppet's belly yet.

Even the Ruling Fate Immortal Lord and Zhao Yuanchen, who had many 9-realm immortal lords to support them, could not reach the area. Because the moment they reached it, the immortal king puppet would panic and blast them, forcing them away.

These were all children of immortal emperors!

"Don't give up, this is the best chance!"

"This is the only chance to get a ninth-grade Mark of an Immortal King. Hold on! This immortal king puppet must have a limit!"

As difficult as it was to get near, no one was willing to pass up on this opportunity. Their eyes were lit up due to the ninth-grade Mark of an Immortal King, buried deep in the diamond spider's abdomen. They could see it clearly. It had to be real.

"Rumors say that obtaining a ninth-grade Mark of an Immortal King allows one to lay down foundations up till the ninth tier of the Great Void Immortal Realm. At that time, one will have an easier time cultivating up to the ninth tier. And with my mother's abilities, she will guide me to the eternal immortal emperor realm. I have hopes of reaching eternal life!"

The Dancing Flame Phoenix Lord's eyes burned upon seeing the ninth-grade Mark of an Immortal King before her. Even though she had already obtained an eighth-grade Mark of an Immortal King, she was still not satisfied. Of course, she only dreamed of the 10th-grade Mark of an Immortal King, because she knew that it was not something she could obtain.

"This Great Void Immortal Path is an experiment. If no one can get the 10th-grade Mark of an Immortal King, then it will be even more ridiculous the next time. The contest for the Mark of an Immortal King 5,000 years from now will be saturated. At that time, all the children of the immortal emperors will also come to compete, and their numbers will swell tenfold. After all, up till now, many already prepared decent Marks of an Immortal King for their children, who don't need to come here to contest."

The Dancing Flame Phoenix Lord reminded herself.

Therefore, it steeled her resolve to get this ninth-grade Mark of an Immortal King! It was her greatest wish!

But her youth troubled her. She felt that she would be in a better position next contest. At that time, she would be on the same level as Mo Yuji and the Ruling Fate Immortal Lord, and could also lead her group. Whereas now, she could only depend on her tribe!

"White Sun, you must help me in this!"

The Dancing Flame Phoenix Lord watched anxiously from the sidelines. It would be too dangerous for her to enter the fray.

She might even die.

"Who is that!?"

Suddenly, she saw a middle-aged immortal lord, wearing robes of white, with long hair and eyes of deep sapphire-blue. Although he was not young, he was fairly handsome.

Not many people recognized him. After all, he had to be a lone immortal lord. 100 million immortal lords had come to the Great Void Immortal Path. Besides the descendants of the immortal emperors and some elite immortal lords, the rabble would rarely be recognized, unless they had met before the Great Void Immortal Path.

The Dancing Flame Phoenix Lord had noticed him because he had been watching the battle from the sidelines for a long time. Suddenly, he vanished, and the Dancing Flame Phoenix Lord saw him no more.

In such a chaotic melee, no one could be bothered to look at anyone besides the target they were fighting.

"I'm close!"

The Ruling Fate Immortal Lord's autonomous realm power blocked the abyssal sword qi and also the Imperial Darklight of the Higher Heavens. He could clearly see the long legs of the diamond spider now.

He also saw the blind spot, and his heart raced!

"The ninth-grade Mark of an Immortal King is mine!"

He reined in his rising excitement and pressed forward!

At this time, the immortal king puppet was in full-blown anger. It actually abandoned the eighth-grade Mark of an Immortal King and scuttled away at full speed, apparently intent on returning to the pit. And at this time, it suddenly screamed, the harsh sounds mixing into the Nine Harmonies of a Thousand Worlds. The doubled aural assault had even the Ruling Fate Immortal Lord swooning from the pain. The immortal king puppet stepped past above his head.

"It's getting away!

Stop it!"

Someone hollered in the confusion.

The Ruling Fate Immortal Lord started. In the disarray, the immortal king puppet had passed by his eyes, and he saw a blue-haired immortal dangling from the belly of the diamond spider, exactly at the blind spot. He hung there grimly, blocking the sharp, piercing legs of the diamond spider. And then he pulled out a shortsword and started hacking away at the diamond spider's abdomen!

"Somebody's there!"

"I saw him!"

"He's going to get the Mark of an Immortal King! The blue-haired dude!"

Soon, not just the Ruling Fate Immortal Lord, but everyone had seen him. Their eyesight was good, so they could see Wu Yu in the form of the Snow Region Immortal Lord.

"It's him!" The Dancing Flame Phoenix Lord was furious. She would not let this ninth-grade Mark of an Immortal King fall into the hands of an outsider!

But upon sensing the danger, the diamond spider had already abandoned the eighth-grade Mark of an Immortal King, fleeing hysterically back to the pit. Given its abilities, no one could stop its escape.

However, they could see the blue-haired immortal hanging grimly to its underside. He was difficult to reach!

"Kill him!"

Afraid that Wu Yu would succeed, all their attacks were directed to the blind spot. Wu Yu felt the incredible danger from all sides. The diamond spider was trying to stab him, while the other immortals' mystiques had almost engulfed him. In that instant, he felt the threat of death, and he had no choice but to dodge. He used Fulgurating Shadows and vanished before their eyes!

Seeing Wu Yu forced away, they heaved a sigh of relief!

But the diamond spider was still incredibly aggravated. It charged back to the conical pit, hiding at the bottom before it activated its three great immortal designs. Again, the pit became a no-go zone. This way, it would only need to deal with enemies from one direction, which was much easier. No one would be able to reach its underside either.

"Come up here right this instant!"

The Dancing Flame Phoenix Lord rushed up, waving the eighth-grade Mark of an Immortal King. But the diamond spider was scared now. Although it wanted to go up, it resisted. For it, hiding here was the safer option.

"Damn it! Who was that just now!?

“How did he reach it? He didn't seem that strong!"

Zhao Yuanchen demanded of the others in his rage.

"Seemed like the Snow Region Immortal Lord. I saw him close to death previously, but he's lively as a tiger now." Someone spoke up, recognizing the Snow Region Immortal Lord. They asked about Snow Region Immortal Lord's background. He was a loner immortal lord who had always cultivated alone. He had not joined any group and was a solitary person. Not many people knew him.

"How did he do that?"

"Where is he now? Come on out!" Zhao Yuanchen was flustered now. He wanted to kill the Snow Region Immortal Lord, as he was an immortal lord who could do things that Zhao Yuanchen himself could not.

Actually, everyone wanted to kill the Snow Region Immortal Lord first. At this time, no one cared about the diamond spider below. The immortal king puppet was safe at the bottom, staring upwards maliciously. Safety first.

It waited at the top of the cone, and the space beneath its belly was extremely limited! Besides, ordinary people would have to brave the three great immortal designs to reach it.

For now, battle ceased.

Everyone was combing the area for the Snow Region Immortal Lord.

At this moment, the diamond spider suddenly screamed again!

Because Wu Yu had aimed precisely, using the Somersault Cloud mystique's Fulgurating Shadows to appear in that narrow space, in the blind spot!

"What's going on below?!"

"I don't know!"

They rushed over anxiously. They could see through the immortal king puppet's body. There seemed to be a blue-haired immortal below!

Widespread consternation and anger. They immediately charged down without a word.

"We can't let him get it, no matter what!"
