Chapter 1144: Peak Experts

The energy fluctuations in the battle zone, where Mo Heng and Grand Monarch Primal Demon were having a fierce fight, could easily crush any early Saint domain cultivator.

Nie Tian’s nine Star Eyes came to a stop in a place close to the battle zone.

With their exceptional vision and soul detection, Nie Tian tried to capture the ultimate clashes between their spiritual power and flesh power, along with the profound truths of heaven and earth and their bloodline that lay within them.

He could vaguely see Mo Heng’s dharma idol and Grand Monarch Primal Demon in Ancestral Awakening form.

Both of them were thousands of meters tall, looming behind clusters of power that carried different attributes in the deepest part of the Shatter Battlefield.

Mo Heng’s dharma idol was wielding the purest spiritual power of heaven and earth, as if he could dominate the change of seasons and the course of realms.

Even though his spiritual power didn’t carry any attribute, as he used full force, he could create any fiery, frigid, lightning, or other domain he wanted.

Grand Monarch Primal Demon stood towering like an ancient demonic god that had dominated heaven and earth since the birth of this starry river.

This was completely different from how graceful and elegant he had looked when he had first come out of the Demons’ floating stronghold.

SHEW!

A large cluster of purple aura that was as dazzling as a purple sun suddenly shot out of their battle zone.

In the next moment, it exploded high in the sky, sending purple flames and lightning bolts into its surroundings, which rapidly morphed into numerous mirror images of Grand Monarch Primal Demon in his graceful regular form.

FIZZ!

At the same time, wisps of aura flew out of Mo Heng’s dharma idol and morphed into numerous mirror images of himself.

Each and every one of them seemed to be made of flesh and blood and have their own souls.

Dozens of Mo Heng’s mirror images formed hand seals simultaneously to cast the Ancient Fragmentary Star Palace’s many exquisite incantations as they fought Grand Monarch Primal Demon’s mirror images.

Floating extremely high in the sky, Nie Tian’s nine Star Eyes fixed on the battle that was happening underneath them.

Before long, both Grand Monarch Primal Demon’s flesh power mirror images and Mo Heng’s soul power mirror images flew back towards their masters, where all sorts of energies were clashing in the air.

Nie Tian sensed wisps of suffocating auras from the depths of the void.

That was when he realized that they were the auras of the sectmaster of the Void Spirit Society, titans, dragons, and grand monarchs of different races.

Many God domain and tenth grade peak power beings from across the starry river were paying close attention to this battle between Grand Monarch Primal Demon and Mo Heng.

Through his Star Eyes, Nie Tian examined the wisps of terrifying auras and thought to himself, â€śIt won’t matter who wins the duel. The grand elder will be considered victorious as long as he survives. The grand elder has just entered the middle God domain and won a battle against Grand Monarch Bloodlust. Then immediately afterwards, he challenged Grand Monarch Primal Demon to a duel...

“It’s simply shocking how unpredictable and full of changes pure spiritual power can be. Spiritual power is the most common and easy-to-master power there is.

“However, the grand elder is relying on such attributeless power to contend against Grand Monarch Primal Demon, and there’s no sign of him losing the battle so far.

“Spiritual power...”

Nie Tian immersed himself in the fierce clashes between Mo Heng’s unpredictable spiritual power that was vested with his soul awareness and Grand Monarch Primal Demon’s flesh power that carried profound bloodline talents.

He gradually closed his eyes and focused wholeheartedly on observing and feeling through his Star Eyes.

Moments later, he subconsciously channeled the spiritual Qi of Heaven and Earth into the pure spiritual power core in his spiritual sea from his surroundings.

He focused his soul awareness on the partially-solidified spiritual power core, which was sparkling and crystal-clear.

He gradually entered a state of Dao enlightenment.

...

In another location in the Shatter Battlefield.

A winding, glorious river that stretched towards unknown places loomed in the heavens.

Scenes appeared and changed in it from time to time, as if they reflected someone’s mind that traveled back and forth between the past, the present, and the future.

Every once in a while, curious streams of sand would be channeled from within it.

A skinny figure could be seen floating in the sky, absorbing the streams of sand from the glorious river that seemed half-real and half-illusory, as if he was using them to refine his power, and at the same time, deriving enlightenment from the wonders of the river.

He was Wu Ji, who had vanished for many years.

If Nie Tian had been there, he would have discovered that his master’s cultivation base had already advanced from the Soul realm to the late Void domain, and still showed no signs of stopping.

It was as if that mysterious, endless river contained all the nourishment he needed to learn about time power and practice cultivation.

Therefore, he simply stayed there and drew time power from it, learned of the wonders of time, and gathered the mysterious sand that helped him build his inner domain.

WHOOSH!

Nie Tian’s image suddenly appeared in the glorious floating river.

Wu Ji looked up with an indescribable look in his eyes, as if he was slowly withdrawing himself from a spot that was hundreds of thousands of years in the past.

Finally coming out of his trance, he muttered, “How long has it been? What’s the kid doing here?”

That was when he suddenly sensed the heaven-shaking, earth-shattering battle that was taking place at the heart of the Shatter Battlefield.

As the thought entered his mind, the scene in the river of time changed, manifesting the battle between Grand Monarch Primal Demon and Mo Heng’s dharma idol. However, it was brief and blurry.

“I can’t believe the battle is at such a peak level!”

Wu Ji was fully roused from the state where his soul drifted along the river of time, learning the course of lives and realms and the profound truths of heaven and earth.

After pondering for a while, he withdrew his wisps of soul awareness that he had dispersed into the river of time.

After that, the glorious river gradually faded away, and vanished completely.

However, the profound connection between him and the river seemed to endure, as he looked up and could still see it floating in the heavens.

It was as if it was only invisible to others.

He then left for Nie Tian’s location, taking his time as he did.

...

In the Stone Golems’ capital in the depths of the Bloody Grave Mountain Range.

Eight stone figures stood towering in a spacious square, surrounding their most powerful member in the middle, as if they were conducting some ancient ritual.

Countless wisps of glowing power were being summoned from every corner of every street in the stone city.

Sparkling like lighting bolts, they poured into the strongest Stone Golem from all directions.

Like Ancientspirits, Stone Golems had been a powerful species during the Desolate Antiquity Era. However, they had practically gone extinct after their battles against the uprising Demons, Phantasms, and Fiends.

BOOOOM!

An enormous figure that was large enough to prop up heaven and earth suddenly appeared over the city, overlooking it like a god.

If Nie Tian had been there, he would have recognized him, as he was the titan who he had met in the Dead Star Sea.

The titan named Chatvic glanced down from the heavens, a hint of compassion and sadness appearing in his eyes.

“You...”
