Chapter 1142: Returning to the Shatter Battlefield

The majority of the spatial rifts in the Shatter Battlefield had vanished after Pei Qiqi had unearthed that Heaven Nourished grade spatial treasure there.

For this reason, the connection between the Realm of Maelstrom and the Shatter Battlefield had long since been cut off.

Many human domains had originally had access to the Shatter Battlefield.

Now, almost all of those spatial tunnels had become inaccessible.

However, as the overlords that had ruled the human world for countless years, the four great sects still had ways to enter the Shatter Battlefield.

The access to the Shatter Battlefield Han Wanrong referred to was the large-scale teleportation portal at the bottom of the ancient starship.

After showing him to the teleportation portal, Han Wanrong said with a concerned expression, “The duel between the grand elder and Grand Monarch Primal Demon is taking place in the deepest part of the Shatter Battlefield. Be careful there. Try not to lose yourself in a battle at such a level. Otherwise, your soul will be under a lot of pressure, and you’ll be hurt.”

Nie Tian nodded slightly. “Thanks for the heads up.” 

“The Shatter Battlefield...” He suddenly remembered that, after all these years, his master, Wu Ji, still hadn’t returned from the Shatter Battlefield, and there hadn’t been any word of him.

He hadn’t been to the Shatter Battlefield since the connection between the Realm of Maelstrom and the Shatter Battlefield had been cut off. He had also failed to obtain any information of him from those who had returned from the Shatter Battlefield over the years.

For all he knew, Wu Ji might have found that mysterious river of time there.

He, who practiced time power, might have already derived profound enlightenment from it, and made significant advances in his cultivation.

From Han Wanrong, Nie Tian learned that powerful experts of different races had already entered the Shatter Battlefield through their respective approaches.

The teleportation portal was activated.

Nie Tian’s head spun, making him feel as if he was being plunged into a space disruption zone.

Numerous strange lights dashed past, as if he himself had become a dashing light that was subject to a mysterious attractive force, and traveled through gaps between spaces.

WHOOSH!

The prolonged spatial travel made him feel a sore and swelling sensation all over his body.

Eventually, he arrived, and all of the uncomfortable feelings disappeared.

Standing by a spatial rift, Kan Zhisheng, a spatial power expert from the Ancient Fragmentary Star Palace, fixed him with a surprised stare. “Nie Tian?!”

The last time they had met, he had been at the late Void domain. But now, he had already entered the Saint domain.

At this moment, he was weaving his hands in the air as balls of light and stones that contained spatial power were cast into the spatial rift in order to maintain its stability.

Before, he had forged a inter-domain teleportation portal in the Divine Flame Sect’s headquarters in the Domain of Heaven’s Boundaries, allowing direct teleportation among his three domains.

For that reason, he had known Nie Tian for a long time.

It was just that he had been rather haughty and self-important when facing him before.

Now, as they met again after many years, he had lost all of his pride, and took the initiative to approach him. Full of smiles, he asked, “Aren’t you supposed to be in recovery? Why did you come here all of a sudden?”

The change in his attitude originated from Nie Tian’s recent victory against Ophelia. Now, he had admittedly become the most promising Son of the Stars.

Kan Zhisheng was a member of the Ancient Fragmentary Star Palace after all. He knew how to behave in front of the person who might very well become the next Lord of the Stars.

“Where is the duel between the grand elder and Grand Monarch Primal Demon taking place?” Nie Tian asked.

Kan Zhisheng pointed into the distant heavens and said, “As you probably know, the Shatter Battlefield is a very vast, circular piece of land. The closer to the center, the stronger the earth is, as well as the heavens and everything else. As a super-large-scale realm, the Shatter Battlefield has the ability to channel power from the starry river to sustain itself.

“Even though it has been badly damaged by the countless battles that have taken place here, the central area is still strong enough to withstand a battle between peak experts.

“That’s why the battle between the grand elder and Grand Monarch Primal Demon is taking place there.

“The central area is quite far from here, but if you want, I can show you there myself.”

Kan Zhisheng showed unprecedented warmth as he explained the situation to Nie Tian.

“Why are you here?” Nie Tian asked with a puzzled face.

“The battle between the grand elder and Grand Monarch Primal Demon has made all of the existing spatial rifts and portals that connect to the outside world unstable,” Kan Zhisheng explained. “I’m here to make sure this spatial rift remain accessible at all times.”

“Oh, I see. If that’s the case, you’d better not go with me.” With these words, Nie Tian pondered briefly, then continued with a serious expression, “Do you know how the battle is going? Is the grand elder holding up?”

What he worried about the most was that Mo Heng would fail to match Grand Monarch Primal Demon’s torrential power, and die at his hands right after entering the middle God domain.

He hadn’t told Han Wanrong about his discovery regarding the hybrids in that space disruption zone, and neither did he plan to tell Wei Lai, or Yan Zhan.

He only intended to find Mo Heng and tell him about his discovery.

Mo Heng was the only one he trusted and believed that would be able to show him the right path.

Kan Zhisheng smiled bitterly. “To be honest, their battle is taking place so far away that I can’t sense how it’s going. However, according to word from others, even though the grand elder is at a disadvantage, it’s not like he can’t fight back.”

Slightly delighted, Nie Tian went on and asked, “By the way, do you know which part of the Shatter Battlefield the river of time is in?”

He hoped to find an opportunity to meet his master, Wu Ji, later.

“Oh, the river of time... That mysterious river is constantly on the move, and sometimes it simply disappears.” With these words, Kan Zhisheng halted to ponder for a moment. “I haven’t paid special attention to it recently. If you want to find it, I’ll see what I can do.”

Nie Tian frowned slightly and said, “Alright, could you show me where the battle between the grand elder and Grand Monarch Primal Demon is taking place?”

Kan Zhisheng then took out a compass and handed it to him.

Grabbing the compass, Nie Tian summoned his Star Boat and flew off towards the depths of the Shatter Battlefield following its directions.

SHEW!

It wasn’t very long before Fata the Floragrim flew over from another direction and stopped in front of him.

Looking unblinkingly at the Heaven-equal Vine that had shrunken countless times next to Nie Tian, he exclaimed, “That’s the Heaven-equal Vine we lost many years ago! I sensed its aura from afar. What are you doing with it, Nie Tian?”

Surprised as Nie Tian was to see Fata, he wasn’t worried.

“This Heaven-equal Vine reached an agreement with our current sectmaster in the Domain of Forbidden Heaven a long time ago.” With these words, Nie Tian turned to take a look at the Heaven-equal Vine. “Okay, I’ve fulfilled my promise.”

The Heaven-equal Vine then flew out of the Star Boat towards Fata, giving rise to a loud whoosh.

Fixing his eyes on the Heaven-equal Vine, Fata activated a unique bloodline talent. Numerous complicated green patterns rapidly appeared and covered his whole body.

The Heaven-equal Vine reached out with an emerald green vine and touched Fata’s skin.

A joyful look appeared on Fata’s face, as if he was communicating with the Heaven-equal Vine by relying on some profound bloodline talent, and the Heaven-equal Vine had gifted him a wisp of power, with which he could strengthen his bloodline.

After a while, Fata said sincerely, “Thank you, Nie Tian.”
