The battle continued. Divine radiance collapsed while the surroundings were thrown into chaos.
The death of two companions had caused the refined man and the others to fall completely into an insane state. Their eyes had almost split apart with rage, and they utilized all their ability. It was no different than fighting desperately with their lives on the line.
This expanse of the heavens and the earth had started to collapse, and it was obliterated into nothingness. This battle between Region Lords had arrived at an extremely horrifying state.
The clansmen of the Xue Clan who stood in the distance were astounded, and they felt even more fortunate right now. They were clearly aware that if it wasn’t for Chen Xi, then their entire clan would have probably been obliterated a long time ago.
“This won’t do. This bastard’s combat strength is too formidable. I’ve already done my best. If we’re still unable to turn the situation around, then the situation will probably become bad for us!” After a short moment, a middle aged man who wore a crane feather cloak howled with a fierce voice. He’d been completely suppressed by Chen Xi and was on the verge of collapse.
It wasn’t just that middle aged man who was in such a state. all the others were in the same situation. They were suppressed by Chen Xi to the point that the pressure they experienced had increased greatly, and they were practically unable to retaliate at all.
If such a situation were to continue, then they would probably perish today!
What should we do?
Could it be that we have to flee?
This thought had practically simultaneously surged into the hearts of the refined man and the others.
It wasn’t that they were afraid of battle, and it was because Chen Xi’s display was too monstrous. He was merely a Third Star Region Lord, yet he’d revealed such heaven defying combat strength. So, no matter how furious and unwilling they were, they had no choice but to consider their safety.
In next to no time, a strand of sword qi that drifted like smoke and was completely indistinct had suddenly appeared out of thin air. It swished lightly, and it chopped off the head of that middle aged man in a crane feather cloak before he could even react!
Fresh blood sprayed while a head was tossed into the sky.
Another Region Lord had been killed!
Witnessing this scene was like the final straw that fell the camel. It caused the refined man and the others to completely collapse.
That middle aged man in a crane feathered cloak was called Kunwu Chong, and he was a matchlessly formidable Fourth Star Region Lord! He was a top-rate existence amongst them, yet now, he’d actually been beheaded by Chen Xi!
How could they not be astounded by this scene?
Even Kunwu Chong had been beheaded, let alone them?
“We’re bound to perish here if we still refuse to flee!”
The nine remaining Region Lords which included the refined man were like birds that had been startled by the twang of a bowstring, and they howled as they fled madly in all directions.
At this moment, they weren’t arrogant and imposing at all, and they seemed like they were dogs that were running with their tails between their legs.
However, Chen Xi seemed as if he’d expected the occurrence of this scene. Numerous grand Divine Talismans rose from the ground and appeared out of thin air. Boundless talisman markings surged out from within them, linked up with each other from afar, and enveloped this entire expanse of the world.
These Divine Talismans were dense and vast like the starry sky, and they were mysterious and terrifying. As soon as they appeared, they emanated boundless divinity, monstrous divine radiance that shot into the sky, and extremely terrifying rumbling.
It was a grand formation formed from Divine Talismans!
At practically the exact same moment, the Talisman Armament in Chen Xi’s hand soared into the sky. It shot into the sky with its hilt facing the sky and its tip pointed towards the ground. It resided at the center of the grand formation that had been formed with numerous Divine Talismans, and it emanated a myriad of droplets of light that rained down from above!
It rained down and transformed into strands of mysterious markings of the Dao that surged into the divine formation, and it caused the entire divine formation’s might to become even stronger.
In an instant, it enveloped the fleeing figures of the refined man and the others!
The corners of Tu Meng’s mouth couldn’t help but twitch when he witnessed this from afar. He finally understood that it wasn’t just his cultivation that was extremely inferior to his Martial Ancestral Uncle, even his attainments in the Talisman Dao was far from being capable of rivalling Chen Xi!
Chen Xi had formed a grand formation of Divine Talismans in a single instant. This wasn’t something that just anyone could accomplish, and the amount of people in Oracle Mountain who could accomplish this could be counted with one’s fingers!
At this moment, these clansmen of the Xue Clan had finally witnessed the inheritance in the Talisman Dao from Oracle Mountain, and their hearts couldn’t help but shake and become unable to calm down for a long time.
He’d caged the world in a single moment!
If such Talisman Dao was utilized to create the defenses of the clan, then why would we worry about being attacked by our enemies?
The divine formation circulated and formed boundless profundities, and its divine radiance swept through the world.
The refined man and the others were trapped within the formation. Their figures had vanished, and even their voices had actually fallen silent. They were unable to make a sound.
It felt like they weren’t confined within a divine formation but had fallen into a boundless abyss instead!
Right at this moment, the Banisher appeared in Chen Xi’s hand, and then his figure flashed, entered the divine formation as well, and vanished.
In an instant, this expanse of the heavens and the earth had fallen into deathly silence.
Only the divine formation was still active. It was enshrouded by divine radiance and illuminated the heavens and the earth. That chaotic scene of battle from before had vanished completely.
Everyone was clearly aware that the battle hadn’t come to an end, and it had just been moved into the divine formation.
On the other hand, the refined man and the others who intended to flee had been trapped within it, and it was undoubtedly like having their paths of retreat sealed off completely and within Chen Xi’s control. So, the consequences that they faced were obvious.
A bright glow flashed in Tu Meng’s eyes as he stared fixedly at the divine formation in silence. He didn’t dare relax until everything had come to a complete end.
Just like Tu Meng, Xue Changkong and the other clansmen of the Xue Clan had fallen silent, and they were unable to keep calm as they gazed at the divine formation.
Even at this point, they still felt like they were dreaming when they recalled everything that had happened earlier. It was too inconceivable.
They were originally merely aware that Tu Meng had defeated the refined man and the 8 Imperial Monarchs, and he’d helped their clan deal with the dangers it faced.
Because of this and in order to repay such a huge kindness, their Patriarch, Xue Changkong, had even given Chen Xi the Snowspirit Seven Secret Energy that was sealed within the Daofuse Cauldron.
However, they were clearly aware that Chen Xi’s body was weak, and he was utterly powerless to fight. So, they’d subconsciously felt that Chen Xi’s combat strength would probably be inferior to Tu Meng even if he did recover completely.
However, when this battle had really erupted, they finally realized that they were mistaken. They were completely mistaken, and they were mistaken beyond compare!
Chen Xi wasn’t just more formidable than Tu Meng, he could simply be considered to be heaven defying!
In the past, could anyone dare to say that a single Third Star Region Lord could withstand the joint forces of 12 Region Lords by himself? If someone did, then they would definitely sneer at it and refuse to believe it at all.
But now, they believed it. Because all of this was occurring right before their eyes!
It was even to the extent that they were very sure that such a battle had probably never occurred throughout the history of the Ancient God Domain.
It was simply like an unprecedented miracle!
After the time for an incense stick to burn, a wave of violent fluctuations suddenly arose from the divine formation, and then it dispersed and vanished completely.
This made the hearts of everyone in the surroundings to tighten involuntarily. However, when they saw the scene at the area where the divine formation once enveloped, all of them seemed as if they’d been struck by lightning, and they revealed stunned expressions.
The ground there was dyed dark red with blood. Numerous damaged corpses that belonged to Region Lords were scattered on the ground. They either had a hole at the center of their foreheads, were slashed into half at the waist, had their heads chopped off….
All of them were Region Lords and every single one of them possessed the might to crush a region. Yet now, they’d actually been killed here, and not a single one of them had survived. It was a shocking and bloody scene.
On the other hand, Chen Xi was returning from that bloody area. His face was handsome and tranquil while his eyes were deep like an abyss. Even though his clothes were dyed red with blood, it was the blood of his enemies, so not only did it not make him seem to be in an embarrassing state, it imperceptibly added an oppressive aura to him.
He strode casually like he’d accomplished an extremely ordinary matter. But at this moment, all the clansmen of the Xue Clan couldn’t help but arouse a wisp of deep reverence as they gazed at his figure, and they didn’t even dare to breathe loudly.
This was his power and influence.
Chen Xi had annihilated all his enemies, and he’d appeared before all of them with peerless might. So, it was obvious how shocking this scene was.
After all, it was 12 Region Lords!
Yet Chen Xi had been able to annihilate them by himself. Such an accomplishment in combat could be considered to be peerless and unprecedented!
If news of it were to spread to the Ancient God Domain, then one could only wonder what sort of monstrous uproar it would cause.
However, Chen Xi didn’t feel much of a sense of accomplishment from all of this. He’d met existences that were even stronger than Daolords within the Land of Catastrophe, so how could he possibly feel pleased with himself from annihilating some Region lords.
Once one had seen and experienced more, one’s horizons would be widened, so one would naturally become accustomed to all of this. This was roughly what Chen Xi experienced right now.
Chen Xi arrived before Xue Changkong and spoke apologetically. “I’m sorry. The battle destroyed this place.”
Presently, the entire territory of the Xue Clan had been reduced to ruins. It was covered in a scene of desolation that was simply too horrifying to look at.
Xue Changkong hurriedly shook his head and shrugged. “It’s fine, it’s fine. It can be rebuilt, but death can’t be undone.”
He paused for a moment, took a deep breath, and then he bowed and said, “Thank you, Chen Xi. My Xue Clan will definitely remember this kindness!”
At this moment, the other clansmen of the Xue Clan seemed as if they’d awakened from a dream. They bowed simultaneously, and their faces were covered in boundless gratitude and respect.
Chen Xi waved his hand, and a strand of invisible energy helped Xue Changkong up before he said, “Now that it’s done, Tu Meng and I won’t be troubling you anymore. We’ll be taking our leave right now. If you’re free in the future, then feel free to visit Oracle Mountain. I’ll be waiting for your arrival.”
Xue Yun was the first to be unable to restrain herself and blurted out. “You’re leaving?”
“Yes. I have numerous important matters to attend to, so I can’t stay here for long.” Chen Xi smiled. “However, I believe that regardless of whether it’s the Gongye Clan or the other powers, they won’t dare to assault the Xue Clan again after this incident.”
If it was before this battle, then Chen Xi wouldn’t dare guarantee this. But now that he’d annihilated the 12 Region Lords who had attacked, if they still dared to attack the Xue Clan again while under the effect of such deterrence, then they were simply provoking Chen Xi.
Provoking Chen Xi was equivalent to provoking Oracle Mountain, and he believed that so long as they understood this, then no one would dare to look for trouble with the Xue Clan.
Xue Changkong and the others were clearly aware of this as well, so they were excited in their hearts. They were clearly aware that it was equivalent to being under the protection of Oracle Mountain from now on, and this was immeasurably beneficial to their clan’s development in the future!
