At this moment, the atmosphere throughout the entire battlefield seemed as if it had frozen. Regardless of whether it was the Dao Defiants or Dao Protectors, all of them felt a form of unprecedented coldness, and they were shocked speechless.
The desolate sound of the horn was still surging through the distant sky, but it seemed to carry a sad and dreary aura when it entered into their ears.
Every single peak Divine Child possessed the potential to charge into the Daolord Realm. They were the best experts amongst the Dao Defiants, and the loss of every single one of them was an extremely heavy blow to the Dao Defiants.
Yet at this moment, just a battle with Chen Xi alone had caused 6 of them to be killed on the spot!
That was an unimaginable blow to the Dao Defiants.
On the other hand, when the Dao Protectors witnessed Chen Xi’s heaven defying combat strength, they found it difficult to accept as well.
Especially those experts like Suiren Kuanglan who’d completely offended Chen Xi. They were horrified to the point they broke out in cold sweat, and they were very clearly aware that if they had gone head-on against Chen Xi earlier, then the consequences would simply be unimaginable.
Besides that, this scene strengthened their resolution to stay far away from Chen Xi and even flee the Slaughter Highlands!
After all, if they didn’t flee, then none of them was able to guarantee that they would be able to kill four peak Divine Children like Chen Xi had requested.
If they couldn’t, then they would be pursued and killed by Chen Xi, sooner or later!
When all of them recovered from their shock, Chen Xi’s figure had vanished from that spot on the battlefield.
Some sharp sighted experts noticed that Chen Xi hadn’t stopped at all after he killed those 6 peak Divine Children, and he’d continued forward.
But the campsite of the Dao Defiants was further ahead!
Could he be intending to kill his way into their base camp?
They didn’t even have the time to think about it when a wave of that desolate horn resounded once more, but it was the signal for the Dao Defiants to retreat.
It wasn’t a temporary stop to the battle, it was a true retreat from the Slaughter Highlands, the 1st battlefront!
When they confirmed all of that, the Dao Protectors felt dazed. Just Chen Xi alone utterly defeated them to the point of fleeing, and he overturned the entire situation of the battle?
This was simply unprecedented!
Even if it were throughout the Battle of Dao Protectors of the past, there had never been someone who’d been capable of turning the entire situation around with the strength of a single person!
But no matter what, such a scene had occurred, and it meant that the war on Slaughter Highlands had come to an end with the defeat of the Dao Defiants!
According to the rules of the past, once the battle on the 1st battlefront came to an end, then the Dao Protectors had to rush to the 2nd battlefield, the Sacred Ocean of Blood, to continue the battle.
However, the Dao Protectors didn’t have the mood to continue killing. They’d truly been horrified by Chen Xi’s heaven defying accomplishments in battle, and their hearts palpitated with horror and couldn’t calm down.
Many of them had even decided to immediately teleport back to the campsite outside the Spring of Sin to firstly recuperate and cleanse the energy of sin within them, and secondly to avoid that Savior who killed without batting an eyelid and prevent Chen Xi from getting even with them now that the battle had ended.
After all, the 13 Dao Servants resided in the camps in the outside world, so it was definitely impossible for Chen Xi to go there and look for trouble with them.
Most of the experts from the Divine Dao Protector Clans were of the same mind. In any case, the Battle of Dao Protectors would be going on for a long time, so it wouldn’t be too late for them to return to the battlefield and continue fighting after it was safe.
Many Dao Protectors immediately set out.
This included Suiren Kuanglan who left hastily as well. He wasn’t willing to stay here for a moment longer.
Only Tang Xiao’xiao, Xia Ruoyuan, and Jin Yunsheng stayed behind. They were very clearly aware that they would be regarded as traitors upon returning to the outside world and would be attacked by everyone. The consequences of that were horrible.
So, they merely returned to the campsite on Slaughter Highlands.
Surprisingly, Shi Chuge actually traveled alone along the path Chen Xi had taken, and he quickly vanished out of sight.
No one knew exactly what he was thinking. Or perhaps it could be said that Shi Chuge seemed like a completely different person after he watched that unparalleled battle where Chen Xi killed two peak Divine Children and made two more flee before him. Shi Chuge had become reticent and reclusive, and he frequently acted on his own. This made it even more difficult for others to discern his thoughts.
When Chen Xi’s figure arrived at the campsite of the Dao Defiants, he noticed that only some weak Dao Defiants who hadn’t been able to retreat in time were still left here.
They watched him arrive with horror in their eyes and despair on their faces.
Chen Xi remained silent for a moment yet didn’t attack them in the end. His figure flashed through the campsite and teleported towards the distance.
In the information he obtained, the 2nd battlefront, the Sacred Ocean of Blood, was situated in the starry sky a few million kilometers away from Slaughter highlands.
It was a surging ocean of blood within the starry sky. It was covered in sin and buried countless souls. It was the central area where the Dao Defiants gathered.
In the Battle of Dao Protectors in the past, even if the Dao Protectors were able to charge through the Slaughter Highlands, they would mostly be slaughtered at the Sacred Ocean of Blood.
The reason was that when the flames of war had spread to the Sacred Ocean of Blood, it wasn’t just a battle between Ninth Star Region Lords. There would even be some figures with extraordinary natural talent who obtained supreme fortune after experiencing the tempering of the previous battle, and they would break through into the Daolord Realm and annihilate all their enemies at the Sacred Ocean of Blood!
Something worthy of mentioning was that it wasn’t just the Dao Defiants who would advance into the Daolord Realm, there had even been cases like that amongst the Dao Protectors.
In other words, during the war at the 2nd battlefront, the Sacred Ocean of Blood, the combat strengths possessed by both sides would undergo a breakthrough, and it would be a battle between the newly advanced Daolords!
That clearly made it even more dangerous.
In the past, numerous experts of the Divine Dao Protector Clans would definitely not head to the Sacred Ocean of Blood before they attained the Daolord Realm.
However, this year’s Battle of Dao Protectors was unlike those of the past. The battle on the 1st battlefront, the Slaughter Highlands, had concluded too swiftly. It was even to the extent that many experts of the Divine Dao Protector Clans hadn’t even been able to grasp the critical factor to advance within the 1st battlefront before it had already come to an end.
Just like this very moment, there hadn’t been a single expert who had advanced into the Daolord Realm throughout the participants from the Divine Dao Protector Clans.
On the other hand, the Dao Defiants had suffered heavy losses. In the last few days, just Chen Xi alone had annihilated almost 10 of their peak Divine Children!
All of them were unparalleled figures who had a very good chance to break through and advance into the Daolord Realm. However, they hadn’t even had the chance to break through before they’d died miserably at Chen Xi’s hands. So it was obvious how heavy such a blow was to the Dao Defiants.
Besides that, it had indirectly reduced the amount of potential Daolords amongst the participants from the Dao Defiants’ side. So, such a situation was advantageous to the Dao Protectors.
Of course, Chen Xi hadn’t thought or cared about all of that at all.
After he killed those 6 peak Divine Children, the Dao Calamity Sword had condensed two more translucent lotus flowers which contained the aura of Destiny, and they transformed into surging energy that was fully absorbed by Chen Xi.
However, his body was like a bottomless abyss right now. It actually showed no signs of becoming full after obtaining such an enormous amount of energy, and it even revealed an extremely strong thirst for energy!
It wasn’t sufficient!
This little bit of energy was far from sufficient for him to advance into the Daolord Realm!
He needed even more energy that carried the aura of Destiny!
This sort of thirst was so strong that even Chen Xi couldn’t help but be slightly surprised. He roughly understood that it was a completely new transformation which his body had undergone after it merged with the complete River Diagram.
Just like how killing those peak Divine Children wasn’t that difficult for him anymore, and he actually felt unsatisfied and unable to utilize his full strength.
However, his cultivation was still at the Ninth Star Region Lord Realm!
This caused Chen Xi to suddenly attain a form of comprehension. His advancement into the Daolord Realm had become completely different from other Ninth Star Region Lords, and the energy he needed was utterly impossible to be controlled by other Ninth Star Region Lords!
According to legend, when a Ninth Star Region Lord’s ability to sense the River of Destiny grew clearer and greater, the strength possessed by that cultivator upon advancing into the Daolord Realm would be greater.
But in the same way, it would grow more and more difficult for that cultivator to advance from the Ninth Star Region lord Realm!
Chen Xi could see the vast and eternally surging River of Destiny within his sea of consciousness at all times, and he could even see every single splash and stream of it with extreme clarity.
It was even to the extent that he could sense its source!
Under such circumstances, didn’t that mean that the difficulties and barriers he encountered in his path to advancement would be far greater than others?
Chen Xi wasn’t sure about that, but he could confirm that even if he was still at the Ninth Star Region Lord Realm now, his combat strength and energy were still undergoing an incessant transformation and improvement!
Perhaps the energy within his body would reach a full state one day, and that would be the moment he advanced into the Daolord Realm.
When Chen Xi did step foot into the Daolord Realm, it was obvious how terrifying his combat strength would be.
So, Chen Xi urgently needed to obtain energy right now!
The Sacred Ocean of Blood at the center of the 2nd battlefront was his objective.
At the same time that Chen Xi traveled to the Sacred Ocean of Blood, Leng Xinghun and Dao Wushuang had left without making a sound and returned to the campsite in the outside world.
Both of them had obtained news about how Chen Xi had killed 6 peak Divine Children, and they knew that Chen Xi was heading to the Sacred Ocean of Blood by himself.
Even though they were very sure that it was very unlikely for Chen Xi to return to the campsite on Slaughter Highlands, Leng Xinghun and Dao Wushuang had still left for safety’s sake.
They hadn’t forgotten what Chen Xi had told them before he left for the battlefield. The day he returned from the battlefield would be the day he got even with them!
Even though they were infuriated by it, they had to admit that it was impossible to suppress and crush Chen Xi with just their strength alone
So, they had no choice but to leave for now, notify Daolord Xu Tuo about everything related to Chen Xi, and then decide their next course of action.
Actually, regardless of whether Chen Xi was able to return from the Sacred Ocean of Blood, they were very clearly aware that the 13 Dao Servants and their Sovereign Sect would be unable to tolerate Chen Xi’s existence any longer.
Death was the one and only outcome waiting for Chen Xi when he participated in the Battle of Dao Protectors!
