Lord of All Realms - Chapter 1161: The Depths[Updated at: 2021-01-14 16:01:50]
“The area where grand monarchs are fighting God domain experts?!” Nie Tian muttered with a bitter smile. He shook his head slightly, realizing that he had underestimated the difficulties they were facing.
Mo Heng and Grand Monarch Primal Demon were currently fighting in the deepest part of the Shatter Battlefield. Earlier, he hadn’t even dared to have his Star Eyes fly too close to them. Instead, he had only remotely sensed the clashes between their power from the perimeter.
No matter how proud he was, he knew that given his current cultivation base and bloodline grade, that battle zone wasn’t for him to enter.
It was a place designated for grand monarchs of different races and God domain human experts.
Those with his cultivation base and bloodline grade would be courting death if they rashly entered it.
Qu Yi, the sectmaster of the Void Spirit Society, fixed Nie Tian with a curious look. “Is this bone of yours from a Star Behemoth? What’s special about it?”
Before Nie Tian could say anything, Ji Yuanquan took the initiative to answer the question for him. “Sectmaster, that bone helped Nie Tian see that several Stone Golems were trying to resurrect this Star Behemoth through a frantic sacrificial ritual. It was thanks to him and that bone that we were able to find out what was going on here. However, we were still a step too late.”
Under the Stone Golems’ summons, that Star Behemoth had been awakened, and was breaking out from the depths of the earth.
Qu Yi nodded slightly and muttered, “I see. If this Star Behemoth had its head pierced by another Star Behemoth and died, does that mean we’ll be able to stop its rampage in the Shatter Battlefield by piercing its head the same way?”
He had doubts.
After a moment of hesitation, he fixed Wu Ji with an inquiring look. “Mr. Wu...”
Wu Ji shook his head. “I’m not sure either.”
Qu Yi pondered briefly before suggesting, “I guess I can take Nie Tian to the battle zone. However, it’ll be a dangerous trip. I’m afraid...”
“Are we sure that it can only be put down by a part taken from another Star Behemoth?” Ye Wenhan asked.
As they spoke, the Star Behemoth further split the solid earth, revealing more of its enormous back.
More chasms ripped through the earth.
Its arched back rose higher and higher like a mountain range that towered into the clouds, as if it could burst out at any moment.
That tenth grade Stone Golem had somehow vanished into its body, as if he had joined its organs, allowing him to channel and manipulate it with some profound ancient magics.
Heaven-destroying, earth-extinguishing howls and roars echoed out from the depths of the Shatter Battlefield, which was hundreds of thousands of kilometers away.
Devastating spiritual power fluctuations and flesh power storms engulfed that area of the heavens, turning that region into a bloody arena that devoured every living being that entered it.
Qu Yi looked in that direction and said, “Even the grand monarchs have been influenced and lost their minds. The Star Behemoth’s head must be buried there. And the fact that that region is strong enough to withstand the devastating impact of the battles between God domain cultivators and grand monarchs must have something to do with that as well.”
“Would you... take me there, Senior Qu?” Nie Tian volunteered.
Surprised, Qu Yi asked, “Are you sure?”
Nie Tian nodded.
Qu Yi also understood that even though this was the place where the Stone Golems had awakened the Star Behemoth, the Star Behemoth’s vital part didn’t lie here.
If he stayed here, he might be able to inflict heavy damage on the Star Behemoth with the Void Mirror.
However, if he wanted to kill the Star Behemoth and send it back to the depths of the earth, its head where its discarnate soul had regathered would be the key.
“Okay,” Qu Yi said, flashing to Nie Tian’s side in the next moment.
As soon as Nie Tian put his Star Boat away, Qu Yi grabbed him and pulled him into the Void Mirror, where they disappeared like two drops of water disappearing into the sea.
Upon entering the Void Mirror, Nie Tian was struck by a curious feeling of shuttling back and forth between different layers of space.
The Void Mirror seemed to contain a whole other heaven and earth inside of it that was a complicated hub like a space disruption zone. It carried him between different spaces until it found the location of the designated coordinates.
While amazed by the wonders of the mirror, he suddenly appeared in the clouds at the heart of the Shatter Battlefield under Qu Yi’s protection.
Glorious light enveloped the deepest part of the Shatter Battlefield. He looked up, but couldn’t see a single star. His sight was filled by a dark, cold void.
Gazing down, he found the heart of the Shatter Battlefield to be a vast piece of grayish-brown land.
There were mountains and lakes as well, but not the slightest bit of vegetation.
At this moment, figures that Nie Tian found suffocatingly large were scattered across the grayish-brown earth, and the sky that was wreathed in glorious light. Some of them threw their heads back and roared into the heavens, while others were caught up in fierce fights.
There were Demons that had activated Ancestral Awakening, God domain experts that had unleashed their dharma idols, and titans that were enormous in their regular form. Among them, Nie Tian saw Grand Monarch Withered Bones, Grand Monarch Dark Nether, the head of the fire element sect, the head of the wood element sect...
Each and every one of them represented the peak strength of a vast part of the starry river. Now, they were making the vast heaven and earth look crowded.
Countless chasms ripped through the earth. Countless glorious rainbow-like auras filled the sky and infiltrated the flesh aura seas of the mighty outsiders and Ancientspirits. They filled their flesh aura seas with sparkling, colorful diamonds, and filled their minds with twisted bloodlust and violence.
“We’re here,” Qu Yi said.
Eyes narrowed, he focused his attention on the grayish-brown earth. His eyes didn’t spend even a second on the fighting outsider grand monarchs and God domain experts.
A mysterious lightning bolt came to form in midair before striking down. It ripped through the air and disappeared into the depths of the grayish-brown earth.
Qu Yi frowned. “Even my soul power has great difficulty traveling through the depths of the earth. The Star Behemoth’s rich aura seems to be shielded from all outsiders’ and Ancientspirits’ flesh aura detection. Only we have a chance at scanning it with our soul power.”
He was attempting to locate the Star Behemoth’s head with his soul power.
Nie Tian, however, fixed his eyes on the grand elder of his sect, Mo Heng.
Mo Heng’s dharma idol was full of changes, and large enough to prop up heaven and earth. At this moment, he was wielding the purest spiritual power of heaven and earth, enveloped in the most ancient and primal form of a human God domain.
Like the only god within his private domain, he clashed with the outsiders’ flesh aura seas continuously. Each and every clash would sputter devastating spiritual power that caused heaven and earth to shake violently.
Nie Tian once again summoned the Star Behemoth bone from within his ring of holding.
To his surprise, as soon as it flew out, it underwent drastic changes.
Brand new bloodline power patterns seemed to be triggered and formed in it, as if a brand new bloodline talent would soon be awakened.
Nie Tian was flabbergasted, not knowing what had happened.
The Star Behemoth that was gradually rising from the depths of the earth let out another howl.
The earth in this entire vast region shattered immediately!
Countless streaks of glorious auras shot into the heavens like a reverse waterfall, soaring into the silent, ice-cold starry river.
