After Wu Ting was stomped down, he actually struggled with the intention of flying up, and he swiftly soared into the sky and intended to continue fighting.
This time, Chen Xi casually pressed down towards the space before him, and then a shapeless force surged out like a dark cloud that enveloped Wu Ting.
This time, it struck him directly. Wu Ting’s entire body was slapped onto the ground once more, and the bones in his entire body broke inch by inch, causing him to cough out large mouthfuls of blood and become unable to crawl up again!
An Immortal King was completely defeated.
“Chen Xi, you can’t kill me! The Sovereign Sect has swept through the three dimensions now, and since you dare go against us, you’re bound to be eternally unable to die a natural death!” Wu Ting howled furiously with a savage and livid expression, and it revealed dense resentment and anger.
Chen Xi didn’t waste his breath on Wu Ting at all. He swung the sword in his hand and severed Wu Ting’s head, causing the golden blood of Immortal Kings to spray out in a dazzling and horrifying yet beautiful manner.
But even then, Wu Ting actually didn’t perish completely, and he still cursed in a grim voice. “Damnable ant! How could you possibly kill me? So long as calamity is endless, the quintessence will remain!”
His shrill voice tore through the sky while his severed corpse actually started to show signs of healing and resurrecting at this moment.
“The Calamity Resurrection Pill? Hmph!” Chen Xi wasn’t surprised by this. He directly moved forward and stretched out his hand to grab Wu Ting’s corpse, and then a strand of Terminus Dao Insight imperceptibly surged out from his palm and invaded the corpse.
In an instant, Wu Ting’s entire corpse seemed as if it had been incinerated. All the energy, essence, spirit, and vitality within it was terminated before it transformed into a pile of ashes that completely vanished in the heavens and the earth.
“Ter… Terminus… You…” In the sky, Wu Ting’s final words resounded. It was filled with boundless terror and bewilderment, and it was blown away by a gust of wind and was completely drowned out.
“So what if you’re an Immortal King? You’re nothing great.”
Chen Xi put the Dao Calamity Sword away and started to clean up the battlefield.
This time, Chen Xi had killed Wu Ting and two Half-step Immortal Kings from the Sovereign Sect. Unfortunately, the spoils of the battle weren’t really satisfying to Chen Xi. Because besides the Green Spiritbreaker Nightmare Spear being of extremely great value, there were only some immortal materials, immortal herbs, and other such treasures.
It wasn’t that these treasures were worthless, and it was that they weren’t attractive in Chen Xi’s eyes now.
This was an extremely normal thing. If it was during the period he’d just arrived at the Immortal Dimension, every single treasure here would absolutely cause him to feel overjoyed. Yet now, he’d already stepped onto the path to become an Immortal King, and his vision had already been placed outside the three dimensions. So it was very difficult for ordinary treasures to please him.
This Green Spiritbreaker Nightmare Spear isn’t bad. It’s at the extreme-rank of the Void Grade, and it’s only a trace away from possessing the might of a Divine Artifact. It’s entirely possible for it to be refined into the Talisman Armament… Chen Xi held Wu Ting’s spear in his hand and observed it in detail for a moment, and then he put it away.
He cultivated in the Talisman Dao and Sword Dao, and not the Spear Dao. So even though this spear was a rare treasure, in his eyes, it was only a rare material that could be utilized to refine the Talisman Armament.
Presently, Chen Xi was already clearly aware that Immortal Artifacts were divided into the Ordinary Grade, Darkspirit Grade, Cosmic Grade, Valiant Grade, and Void Grade, and they respectively corresponded to the Heavenly Immortal, Mysterious Immortal, Golden Immortal, Saint Immortal, and Immortal King Realms.
However, in terms of the utilization of Immortal Artifacts, there wasn’t such a strict requirement. For example, Immortal Kings with deep resources and reserves could even possess Divine Artifacts while those that were poor could only utilize Void Grade Immortal Artifacts.
On the other hand, Divine Artifacts could be roughly divided into Artificial Divine Artifacts and Natural Divine Artifacts.
Artificial Divine Artifacts were refined and created by the gods, and they possessed various different abilities, whereas Natural Divine Artifacts were naturally born from the chaos. There were extremely few of them, and every single one of them were treasures that could only be chanced upon by luck.
When compared with Natural Divine Artifacts, Artificial Divine Artifacts seemed to be slightly inferior, yet it wasn’t actually the case. Its exact might depended on the might and effects of the Divine Artifact itself and the strength of the person utilizing it.
For example, the Nine Continent Divine Cauldrons were an Artificial Divine Artifact refined by the primeval Emperor Yu. It seemed to be inferior to Natural Divine Artifacts, yet it had held down the Karmic Luck of the entire Primordial World!
For example, the Overarching Heaven Net in Chen Xi’s possession was a Natural Divine Artifact that was born from within the chaos. Originally, it was a treasure passed down to his Senior Sister Li Yang by the Master of Oracle Mountain, Fuxi, and it was just not long ago that it was passed down to Chen Xi.
When the Nine Continent Divine Cauldrons were compared to the Overarching Heaven Net, it was obviously impossible to determine exact which was superior.
Of course, with Chen Xi’s current strength, it was still difficult for him to bring forth the entire might of the Overarching Heaven Net. But even then, it was sufficient for him to obtain a great advantage in battle.
Most importantly, the Overarching Heaven Net wasn’t just a Divine Artifact that could be both offensive and defensive, it could even capture the Karmic Luck of the Heavens, Dao Insight, auspicious energy, and various other ethereal things. This was the most unbelievable ability of the Overarching Heaven Net.
According to Chen Xi’s knowledge, the grades and might of Divine Artifacts was absolutely not differentiated in such a simple manner. For example, Third Senior Brother Tie Yunhai and Zhao Taici were both gods, yet the gap between them was extremely huge. At the bottom of it all, it was firstly due to the gap in their cultivations, but it was probably greatly related to the Divine Artifacts in their possessions as well.
Perhaps only when Chen Xi arrived at the Godrank Realm, would he be able to truly understand the value of Divine Artifacts.
“Chen Xi…you…you killed an Immortal King just now?” Suddenly, a voice resounded by Chen Xi’s ears. He turned around and looked over, and he saw Zuoqiu Feiming looking at him with a surprised and bewildered expression while shock filled the space between Zuoqiu Feiming’s brows.
Obviously, the battle from before had alarmed Zuoqiu Feiming.
Moreover, it wasn’t just that, those elders at the Half-step Immortal King Realm from the Zuoqiu Clan had been jolted awake as well. They stood by Zuoqiu Feiming’s side as they gazed at Chen Xi with strange expressions, and it seemed as if they were getting to know him for the first time.
“Yes.” Chen Xi didn’t hide it. At any rate, they’d witnessed it, so it was utterly impossible to avoid.
Zuoqiu Feiming and the others were dazed once more when they heard this, and tempestuous waves rose and fell in their hearts. A Half-step Immortal King killed an Immortal King in a head-on battle? If news of this were to spread, would anyone in the entire three dimensions believe it?
They couldn’t be blamed for being shocked to this extent. After all, it was common knowledge that even though Half-step Immortal Kings seemed to be only half a step away from the Immortal King Realm, that half step was like a natural chasm that lay across the two realms. From the ancient times until now, besides some terrifying figures that were born within the chaos, practically no one was capable of surmounting this chasm.
Yet now, Chen Xi had accomplished it!
This could simply be considered as an unprecedented miracle!
“Seniors, all of you’ve completely refined and absorbed that piece of the Divine Chains of Order?” Chen Xi had no choice but to break the silence. He’d never gotten very accustomed to being looked at in this way, and it made it seem as if he was a freak.
Zuoqiu Feiming and the others seemed as if they’d awakened from a dream, and then they revealed grateful expressions as they nodded successively.
“It’s all thanks to you that were able to seize the Karmic Luck of the Heavens this time.”
“Exactly, we obtained fortune out of misfortune and will definitely be able to easily step into the Immortal King Realm in the future, and it’s all thanks to you, Chen Xi, that we’re able to possess such fortune!”
At this moment, all of these old fellows from the Zuoqiu Clan weren’t shocked any longer, and they started to successively express their gratitude to Chen Xi, causing the latter to instantly feel slightly speechless.
Chen Xi could only change the topic once more. “Earlier, three disciples of the Sovereign Sect appeared here, and they’d definitely come for the sake of annihilating us. According to this, the situation in the Immortal Dimension now is probably slightly dangerous. What do all of you intend to do?”
Chen Xi wasn’t speaking randomly without thinking it true. The door still stood towering in the sky above all the worlds in the universe, and it meant that this calamity still hadn’t ended.
On the other hand, the appearance of Wu Ting’s group meant that the Sovereign Sect had already started to seize this opportunity to descend once more into the world. This was absolutely an unprecedented calamity to all the living beings of the three dimensions.
He could predict that once the Sovereign Sect that had developed painstakingly in secret for so many years descended to the world, it would definitely cause numerous rains of blood in the world.
At that time, it wouldn’t just be the various powers of the Immortal Dimension that were affected, and probably even the Netherworld and Mortal Dimension would become targets of the Sovereign Sect’s invasion.
Sure enough, once these words were spoken, it caused Zuoqiu Feiming and the others to be shocked in their hearts, and their expressions instantly became solemn.
“Alas, my entire Zuoqiu Clan has instead become the sacrifice to draw down this calamity of the three dimensions. Almost all of the higher-ups in the clan have perished, and only the few of us remain now. How should we tide over such a calamity?” An elder sighed and was extremely worried.
The other elders were silent as well. The current Patriarch of the Zuoqiu Clan, Zuoqiu Feng, had been annihilated, Zuoqiu Huanglin had perished, whereas the two existences at the Godrank Realm, Zuoqiu Beiyong and Zuoqiu Lenghua, had fallen as well…
It could be said that the Zuoqiu Clan’s vitality was greatly diminished at the beginning of this calamity, and it was even to the extent that its foundation was in jeopardy and in imminent danger!
“The urgent matter at hand is to return to the clan and calm the hearts of our clansmen, and then select elite figures to temporarily take over the various important affairs within the clan. In this way, we’ll be able to prevent the clan from breaking up!” Zuoqiu Feiming took a deep breath and said with a firm expression, “No matter what, we absolutely can’t allow the inheritance of the Zuoqiu Clan that has been passed down for countless years to be destroyed!”
The hearts of all the elders shook, and then a wisp of a firm expression appeared on their faces.
“Chen Xi…” Zuoqiu Feiming suddenly turned around to look at Chen Xi, and his eyes carried a hopeful expression. “Do you…do you want to return to the Zuoqiu Clan with us?”
In an instant, the gazes of all the other elders shot towards Chen Xi, and their eyes carried a wisp of anticipation.
Presently, the Zuoqiu Clan still lacked a Patriarch, and no matter from which aspect it was, Chen Xi was extremely suitable to take over the position of Patriarch! Even if he was surnamed Chen, half the bloodline of the Zuoqiu Clan still flowed within his body. Moreover, he was the grandson of the Patriarch before last, and coupled with the full support of all of these old fellows, it was sufficient for Chen Xi to take this position.
Chen Xi was stunned, and then he shook his head and said, “Presently, the situation at Dao Emperor Academy is probably not peaceful either. I carry the instructions of Senior Brother Meng Xinghe, so I can only return to the academy first.”
He understood the intentions of Zuoqiu Feiming and the others, but he would absolutely not take control of the Zuoqiu Clan. At the bottom of it all, he didn’t have the slightest good impression of the Zuoqiu Clan.
Zuoqiu Feiming and the others couldn’t help but feel a sense of loss when they heard this.
“However, if all of you encounter any trouble, then feel free to come look for me at Dao Emperor Academy,” said Chen Xi in a serious manner.
“Alright, then it’s decided.” Zuoqiu Feiming took a deep breath and suppressed the sense of loss in his heart before he roared with hearty laughter.
Even though the other elders felt a sense of loss in their hearts, they knew that this was already the best outcome. After all, Chen Xi couldn’t be compared to the past now. He wasn’t just about to take over the position of Dean in Dao Emperor Academy! He was even a Personal Disciple of Oracle Mountain!
How could their Zuoqiu Clan possibly make such a peerless figure stay in their clan?
