This time, Jiang Taizhong and the other eleven Immortal Kings had led the forces of the Jiang Clan, Wanqi Clan, Zhongli Clan, Vastsky Academy, Bitter Silence Academy, Dao Secret Academy, and Grand Desolation Academy, and they’d arrived here menacingly with the intention of sweeping through Dao Emperor Academy and completely annihilating it.
Never had they imagined that during the first battle and when merely facing Chen Xi alone, they’d suffered a heavy injury and successively lost four Immortal Kings.
Such an unexpected event was simply like a strike to the head, and it caused their entire bodies to feel cold while their expressions turned unsightly to the extreme. They felt an indescribable feeling of horror and heaviness.
On the other hand, to those forces that had come along with these great powers, they were terrified to the point their souls almost left their bodies, and they felt as if they’d fallen into an icy pit. Just Chen Xi alone was already so troublesome and terrifying, so they wondered how they would continue fighting this battle.
At this point, they’d lost the complacency they’d had prior to this, and it was like a bucket of icy cold water being poured down on their heads. Their entire bodies felt cold while their will to fight was gradually collapsing and vanishing.
On the other hand, the morale on Dao Emperor Academy’s side had risen greatly, and they let out thunderous cheers that resounded through the sky. No matter if it was the students, instructors, or Mu Rongtian and the others, all of them had shock, delight, and disbelief on their faces.
Chen Xi’s strength had exceeded their expectations as well, and it had caused them to feel an unprecedented feeling of joy and excitement. The hot blood in their bodies seethed, and they truly wished for nothing more than to charge forward and fight by Chen Xi’s side.
The Talisman Armament let out a clear howl, and it was like a roar that yearned to drink blood.
In the sky, Chen Xi attacked once more. The slaughter wouldn’t end until all his enemies perished.
He’d exercised forbearance for a very long time, and he needed an absolute victory to make a show of strength. He needed to use the blood and death of his enemies to tell the entire world that those who sided with the Sovereign Sect would definitely suffer merciless destruction from him!
At the same time, Jiang Taizhong and the other seven Immortal Kings had moved out as well. Their entire bodies glowed and formed a dazzling divine light barrier that enveloped the surroundings, and it was a type of defense and offense at the same time.
The battle couldn’t help but continue.
This time, after merely less than seven minutes of time, another Immortal King was annihilated on the spot. He was originally unable to resist Chen Xi’s pressure and intended to dodge away, yet Chen Xi had withdrawn the Overarching Heaven Net and annihilated him in one go.
This was already the fifth Immortal King that had perished at Chen Xi’s hands, and there was no need to say any more about the shock caused by this.
The truly astounding fact was that while under the circumstances where all the Immortal Kings exerted their entire strengths and fought desperately, not only were they unable to turn the situation around, they were still gradually pressured and suppressed by Chen Xi. This caused a single thought to simultaneously arise in the hearts of everyone — Can Chen Xi be considered as invincible in the Immortal King Realm and is capable of crushing all existences at the same cultivation realm?
Perhaps even if he hasn’t arrived at such an unprecedented and paramount state, he’s probably not too far away…
“Let’s go! Retreat!” Suddenly, in the sky, Jiang Taizhong sent an explosive voice transmission in a deep voice to the other Immortal Kings. He was very clearly aware that he’d already lost control of the overall situation after they’d successively lost five Immortal Kings.
On the other hand, Chen Xi was growing more courageous the longer the battle continued, and seemed as if he was immovable. Under such circumstances, it was already utterly impossible to turn the situation around, and the only choice left before them was to retreat.
The other Immortal Kings had livid expressions. Even though they were unwilling in their hearts, they had no choice but to admit that the operation this time really had to end in failure.
“Junior, we’ll definitely make you pay with blood when we come next!”
“Bastard! No matter how arrogantly you act, you’re only like a mantis trying to stop a chariot when facing the will of the Sovereign Sect, and you’re courting death! Just you wait!”
Amidst their resentful and furious howls, all the Immortal Kings executed teleportation and intended to bring all the other forces along as they retreated.
“Since you’ve come, then why leave!?” Chen Xi grunted coldly before his figure suddenly flashed. He instantly moved a myriad of times in space, and every single step he took caused an indistinct and obscure divine talisman diagram to float into appearance within space.
When he suddenly stopped moving, this expanse of the heavens and the earth suddenly transformed. Numerous grand divine talismans floated out from space while surging with boundless talismans. They cooperated with each other from afar and merged with each other before covering this entire area.
The talismans here were boundless like the starry sky and densely covered the surroundings. They were mysterious, obscure, and emanated strands of the aura of divinity while monstrous divine radiance surged out from them!
All of them had been completed in an instant, and it transformed into a great restriction that was formed from numerous different divine talismans. The great restriction restricted time and space, and it caused those Immortal Kings to be enveloped by it before those Immortal Kings could even dodge away.
“This is a Divine Restriction!”
A wave of exclaims of surprise resounded. All those Immortal Kings were shocked while their expressions changed completely. They didn’t dare move rashly as they’d recognized that this expanse of the heavens and the earth was already enveloped by an expanse of an obscure and mysterious Divine Restriction.
A Divine Restriction was a grand formation that was filled with the aura of divinity, and it could link up with the might of the gods in the heavens. Normally speaking, only supreme existences at the Godrank Realm and above were capable of executing it, as it already possessed the might of the gods.
However, this was merely during normal situations. To Talisman Formation Masters that had attained peak attainments in the Talisman Dao and possessed the title Talisman God, they were similarly capable of setting up Divine Restrictions by relying on some special techniques.
However, existences that possessed the title Talisman God were extremely rare, and they were even rarer than actual gods. The reason was that even though the Talisman Dao was one of the most ordinary and common Grand Daos amongst the 3,000 Grand Daos, it was also the most complicated and obscure. It was difficult to find a single person amongst a myriad of Supreme Talisman Formation Grandmasters that could attain the attainments of a Talisman God in the Talisman Dao.
Yet now, Chen Xi had instantly set up a Divine Restriction that enveloped the world and locked down their paths of retreat. This indirectly proved that his attainments in the Talisman Dao was already sufficient for him to possess the title of Talisman God!
This exceeded the expectations of everyone. Not to mention Jiang Taizhong and the other Immortal Kings, even all the others in Dao Emperor Academy had never imagined that Chen Xi possessed such extraordinary attainments in the Talisman Dao.
Actually, they’d slightly overestimated Chen Xi’s ability. His cultivation in the Talisman Dao had indeed arrived at the attainments of a Talisman God, but if he didn’t possess the Talisman Armament in his hand to cooperate with his actions, he would definitely be unable to instantly set up a Divine Restriction.
After all, he was only an Immortal King and still didn’t possess the energy of the gods, yet the Talisman Armament was different. There were many divine talismans residing within the Talisman Armament, so when they were utilized in the form of formations, he was able to utilize the energy of the gods within the heavens and the earth and condense them into a true Divine Restriction.
The Divine Restriction circulated and erupted with divine radiance, and it interweaved together to form a dense talisman diagram. It emanated terrifying energy fluctuations that drowned this area.
This caused Jiang Taizhong and the other Immortal Kings to be terrified and furious. Even though this Divine Restriction was terrifying, it was unable to do anything to them in a short period of time. However, in this way, it caused them to completely fall into where each of them fought on their own. They were unable to join forces as they had earlier, and this was the most lethal point!
At this moment, their hearts and minds were strained while their brows were knit tightly together. They forcefully resisted the energy of the Divine Restriction that assaulted them without end while they searched for a way out, and they’d become even more careful and cautious.
“Everyone, don’t panic. I have quite a bit of experience in the Talisman Dao. At the very least, we’ll be able to charge out of this Divine Restriction!” Suddenly, an extremely tall and robust middle aged man spoke in a low voice. His entire body surged and glowed with golden Immortal Force that was boundless like an abyss, and as his eyes blinked, talismans could be faintly seen within them. He was actually deducing and finding a way to deal with the formation.
Chen Xi’s expression was calm and indifferent when facing this, and his entire body carried an otherworldly aura. He didn’t take any actions, and he gave others an unfathomable feeling.
Actually, it wasn’t that he was unwilling to make a move, but after he set up this Divine Restriction, the Immortal Force within his body had almost been completely exhausted. Presently, he was trying his best to utilize the Dark Parasol Sapling to recover his strength.
After all, this was a Divine Restriction. Even if he could rely on the Talisman Armament to set it up, but because his cultivation hadn’t attained the Godrank Realm, he was restrained by it and felt that he was unable to endure it for long.
However, when he saw all of these Immortal Kings and even the forces behind them were trapped within the Divine Restriction, Chen Xi felt that the returns absolutely outweighed the costs.
Within the Divine Restriction, the tall and robust middle aged man stopped deducing before he strode forward, and he actually started to break through the formation and intended to establish a pathway to escape.
At this feet, Immortal King Energy flowed densely, and it emanated golden radiance. It formed into a pathway that broke through layer after layer of talismans and led towards the distance.
“This restriction exists only in appearance, and it’s nothing!” He roared with laughter as he flicked his sleeve, and then he led the way forward while he sent voice transmissions to the other Immortal Kings to indicate that this formation could be overcome and wasn’t as terrifying as it was rumored.
However, right at this moment, a row of dense talisman diagrams suddenly floated up into appearance. They appeared before him and obstructed his path before forming into the phantoms of the gods that smashed down towards him.
“Hmm? Wait!” His expression immediately changed when danger descended, and it caused him to become vigilant as he dodged to the side. Numerous attacks brushed by his shoulder, and he was able to dodge them all without encountering any danger.
However, suffering some injuries were unavoidable. An attack had grazed his shoulder, causing blood to spray from the injury that was deep to the bone, and it left a horrifying scar behind.
“This Divine Restriction is transforming at all times, and it possesses boundless and limitless divine might! This is the inheritance of the Infinite Divine Talisman from the Master of Oracle Mountain, Fuxi!” He exclaimed with shock while his expression turned grim. He instantly felt a chill run down his spine while he felt unprecedentedly panicked. He had rather high attainments in the Talisman Dao, so how could he not recognize the inheritance behind this Divine Restriction was from the inheritance of Oracle Mountain?
It was precisely because of this that he was deeply aware that this Divine Restriction was absolutely not as simple as it seemed, and its might could be considered to be boundless. If Immortal Kings were trapped within it, then they were simply like animals waiting to be slaughtered!
When they heard this exclaim of shock, the hearts of all the Immortal Kings within the Divine Restriction turned icy cold while their entire bodies felt cold. Even existences as formidable as them started to feel uneasy at this moment.
It was like they’d fallen into the lair of a dragon, and they were unable to find a way to escape.
A Divine Restriction wasn’t divine in just name. Once it was activated, it could link up with the energy of the gods in the heavens and the earth, and it was difficult to stop because it already possessed the might to slaughter gods.
Even if they were Immortal Kings that were supreme in the three dimensions, it was difficult for them to resist the attacks of a formation like this that possessed the energy of the gods.
“Damnable Bastard! He actually set up such a slaughter formation to trap us all!” At this moment, Jiang Taizhong and all the other Immortal Kings were clearly aware that they had no path of retreat, and all of them remained combat ready and had withdrawn their strongest treasures to protect themselves.
All of their expressions were livid and unsightly to the extreme.
“What a group of wildly barking mad dogs. Since the moment all of you sided with the Sovereign Sect and assisted it to commit evil, your fate had been predetermined. Today, since all of you’ve come to offend my Dao Emperor Academy, then I naturally should annihilate all of you, otherwise how would I give everyone in the world an explanation?” Chen Xi spoke indifferently with a calm voice, yet it revealed a domineering aura that was haughty and arrogant.
At this moment, the hearts of everyone within Dao Emperor Academy surged while their hot blood boiled, and they couldn’t help but start cheering for their Dean.
