Yang Qi was using the destiny of the Dao Defense League for his own personal cultivation, but wasn't touching any of the faith. In fact, all of the faith he had previously collected was being poured into his immortal-slaying clone.
His clone took that power, as well as the faith of all the living beings in the Dao Defense League, and used it to rise to incredible heights of power. During the month that passed, the clone broke through all cultivation obstacles and continuously made progress.
Yang Qi’s cultivation base was already at the peak of the Chaos God level, which meant that he would soon be able to perceive some of the mysteries of the Deathless Heavenly Stairway. He would rise to the first stair, the Stair of Valor, which would instantly make him vastly more powerful than any other Godmyth.
Of course, the process would be much more difficult for Yang Qi than an ordinary person.
Normally speaking, he would have had to build up huge stockpiles of power to try to break through the bottleneck, reach enlightenment, and step onto the Deathless Heavenly Stairway.
But now, he had the Dao Defense League, and the destiny of a hundred trillion immortal worlds. Because of that, his cultivation base was advancing rapidly. It reminded him of when he had taken the true godhood from the Tusita Heaven, except this time it was destiny from immortal worlds.
‘Right. The Tusita Heaven!’
Now that his clone was making progress in the Myriad Worlds Monarch Chart, Yang Qi turned his attention to other matters. He reached out into the depths of the Dao Defense League, causing magical fluctuations to roll out that no other old-timer could come close to matching.
Everyone looked over to see an enormous hand flying out of the Heaven-Dao Operation God-Temple. It reached high to the thirty-third ranked immortal worlds until it finally arrived at the Tusita Heaven.
The Tusita Heaven had no true ruler now. Although Leaf Dao-Denier had taken its legacy, he had subsequently fled, and of course, could not take the place with him.
Yang Qi had killed the old emperor and given his spot of dharmaraja to another person.
It was an incredibly wealthy immortal world, and rulerless; there was no way Yang Qi was going to let it go to waste. Besides, it still had the Live Forever God Tree, along with its incredible collection of destiny.
It was definitely an important spoil of war, and he didn’t want it to fall into the hands of anyone else. Therefore, he would take it for his own in front of the eyes of all, and assimilate it, cementing his glory even further and intimidating any disloyal hearts.
It would take an incredible level of strength to assimilate an entire thirty-third ranked immortal world, especially one with such an ancient history as the Tusita Heaven. He was announcing to the world that he was essentially the god of the immortal world, and that no one should ever dare to attack him.
The immense hand of radiance and light shot through primal-chaos, wrapped around the Tusita Heaven, and ripped it out of its foundations in primal-chaos.
“What’s going on?”
“Is the league-lord going to assimilate the Tusita Heaven? It’s a thirty-third ranked immortal world! How is that even possible?”
“Impossible. That would take the power of a god!”
“The league-lord really must be capable of doing it. Otherwise, why would he let so many people watch what he’s doing?” Everything shook violently, and the shockwaves that spread out through primal-chaos caused numerous beasts to die. As a result, a rain of corpses descended, much to the delight of many ordinary disciples in the Dao Defense League. After all, such corpses were treasure troves to many people.
An enormous primal-chaos elder-snake appeared, which wrapped around the greyspace of the Tusita Heaven and opened its mouth wide, making it look very much like a snake devouring a mammoth.
There were countless living beings and immortals within the Tusita Heaven, but Yang Qi’s divine will reached out to them and whisked them away to other parts of the Dao Defense League, where arrangements had been made for them. All of the riches and wealth that were left behind fell to Yang Qi.
Those who could see were able to watch something incredibly rare playing out. King Heaven-Devourer’s talismans and Yang Qi’s enormous hand of radiance and light were working together to deal with the Tusita Heaven. The hand provided the foundation, and the snake devoured the immortal world. Almost immediately, the place lost its violet color.
As the process continued, the hand dragged the Tusita Heaven down into the Heaven-Dao Operation God-Temple, where it disappeared.
As easily as that, a thirty-third ranked immortal world was disposed of.
At this point, everyone was convinced that Yang Qi really was strong enough to match up to the legion of gods. Not even the Grand Emperors could possibly hope to fight against him.
Before, he definitely wasn't strong enough to assimilate a thirty-third ranked immortal world. But his cultivation base had advanced significantly. Furthermore, he had the beast king clones, each of which was as strong as a Grand Emperor. As such, his Strength of the Hell-Crushing Godmammoth was stronger than ever, and even more relevant, he had some of the power of a Fortuned One and an Eternal One.
He was transforming on a most fundamental level.
As of yet, he was still using the genetic systems in the Cruiser of Civilization to analyze the Eternal and Fortuned blood. When he learned all of the secrets the blood had to offer, he would reach an even higher level.
Having taken the Tusita Heaven, he began working on his cultivation again.
Deep in the Brahman Immortal World, a host of battleships was flying out of the passageway to join the forces of the future worlds.
Dozens of generalissimos had arrived. All of them were on the level of the Grand Emperors, or even stronger. As soon as they arrived, the generalissimos saw the primal-chaos elder-snake and the enormous hand of radiance and light drag a thirty-third ranked immortal world down and send deadly shockwaves out into primal-chaos. It was a completely astonishing act, like an ordinary mortal ripping a huge tree out of the ground.
“Such mighty power! Incredible! That's on the level of a Lesser God! I wonder what power index that is. Quick, perform a scan!”
“That’s so terrifying! I can’t believe this is the first thing we're seeing. How can the immortal dao civilization be unleashing power like this?! I'm not sure that even our magisters could crush that type of power!”
“Is it an expert from the Primeval Age?”
“No, it's coming from the Dao Defense League.”
All of the generalissimos were profoundly shaken by what they were seeing.
One of the lower-ranking marshals stepped forward and offered a respectful salute. “Generalissimos, we can’t get a reading on the power index. When our scanners locked on to the power, they exploded! All we know is that this power surpasses the ninth minor stair of the Deathless Heavenly Stairway! It’s close to the level of a Lesser God. It's true godpower and true godliness!”
“What are the latest developments in the war with the Dao Defense League?” one of the generalissimos asked. “Is there any news? What power indexes have we identified?”
“Sir, Yang Qi deposed Grand Emperor Ragefire Broilheaven and took over as league-lord. He’s united the league into something very much like an empire. He’s already completely diverged from the path of history that we remember. He's obviously created his own errant timeline.
“Based on the information you provided, Generalissimos, we know that Grand Emperor Ragefire Broilheaven should have a power index of nine. You generalissimos all have a power index of more than ten. Although we can’t get a reading on League-Lord Yang Qi, we do know that there are six individuals who have power indexes like Grand Emperor Ragefire Broilheaven. In other words, they have six experts roughly as strong as you generalissimos.”
“Our power indexes are all above ten,” said Generalissimo Worldking, whose military uniform was embroidered with countless planes of existence and worlds. “If we pool our power, we should definitely be able to destroy the Dao Defense League. But it’s too bad we can’t assess the power index of the league-lord. If he's that much stronger than us, it won't do any good for us to make a move until the magisters come. Perhaps we should wait and see how the situation develops.”
“Have any top experts risen up in the Demon League?” Generalissimo Skyvault asked.
“There’s someone called Patriarch Hell-Crusher who has a power index of thirteen,” the marshal respectfully replied. “And they have around a dozen leaders who are at about nine.”Previous Chapter Next Chapter
