Lord of All Realms - Chapter 1359: Cannons Firing[Updated at: 2021-01-14 16:15:14]
Gutas was referred to as “young monarch” by Hazlitt and many other grand patriarchs.
Like Catie, he was also from the Bispo Clan.
Grand Monarch Bloodlust was the origin of his bloodline.
He had led the operation where he, together with Cardy, Catie, and a few other grand patriarchs, had attempted to retake the dark stone.
Now, many years later, he had finally entered the early eighth grade.
However, in Nie Tian’s eyes, since Gutas hadn’t joined the ranks of grand patriarchs, he wouldn’t possibly be able to match him in battle, no matter how talented he was.
He no longer considered Gutas, who had created serious trouble for him in the Shatter Battlefield, a worthy opponent.
“You!” Gutas bellowed.
“The kid seems to be right about that,” Grand Monarch Bloodlust muttered.
Then, he turned to Gutas and said, “Why don’t you stand down, Gutas? Your battle prowess is indeed lower than his.”
“Father!” Gutas exclaimed in discontent.
“Now!” Grand Monarch Bloodlust said sternly.
Gutas jerked around and disappeared into the raging Demon Qi with a whoosh.
Only at this moment did Nie Tian lay his eyes on his former opponent, the descendant of Grand Monarch Illusory Demon, Ophelia, who was holding the Doom Blade.
His expression gradually grew grim as he found that Ophelia had already entered the early ninth grade.
He sensed great danger from this Demon chosen one who had a mighty grand monarch’s blood running through her veins.
This made him realize that she would be a perfect match for him.
FIZZ! FIZZ! FIZZ! FIZZ!
The flame domains of those who practiced fire incantations burned quietly under the attack of the Domain-corroding Flames.
All of the human experts were confined to a small area by the corrosive flames.
“Qiqi!” Ji Yuanquan exclaimed softly.
Pei Qiqi’s bright eyes lit up as she nodded slightly.
As she slowly split the void open with her Space Boundaries Crystal, a glorious spatial rift appeared.
Dazzling lights could been seen flowing and flashing within it.
“Grand Monarch!” The Phantasm grand patriarchs that were driving the Wheel of Time and Space let out another cry.
Because of Pei Qiqi’s stimulation of her spatial bloodline and Space Boundaries Crystal, they finally lost control of this area of space, their sealing spell broken.
Grand Monarch Dark Nether laid his eyes on Pei Qiqi once again.
“Leave him to me. Don’t worry.” Ji Yuanquan said.
“Rip it open!” As Fan Tianze from the Heaven Span Pavilion exclaimed, his Limpid Cyan Sword shot through the starry river like a streak of cyan light.
The numerous dazzling fragmentary stars surrounding Luo Wanxiang suddenly grew dim.
With an unstoppable momentum, the Limpid Cyan Sword pierced into the All Manifestations Star Banner, creating a large hole in the wondrous banner that manifested all things and the profound law of stars.
A heaven-blocking sea of Domain-corroding Flames suddenly surged over and into Fan Tianze’s god domain.
However, all of them were mangled and destroyed by Fan Tianze’s endless sword intent upon entering. Grand Monarch Nether Channeler of the Fiends gasped upon seeing this. “These newly-refined Domain-corroding Flames are supposed to be mighty enough to melt god domains, but why did they fail to melt his domain?”
With an impressive and commanding bearing, Fan Tianze made a grabbing motion in the air, and the Limpid Cyan Sword flew into his hand like a cyan bolt of lightning. “I’ll fight you, Bloodlust!”
Countless spiritual swords cried as he fused wisps of refined soul will and sword intent into every one of them.
Then, like an overwhelming storm, they shot towards Grand Monarch Bloodlust’s flesh aura sea.
A battle between a God domain expert and an outsider grand monarch instantly broke out.
In the blink of an eye, they both dashed off into the distant starry river.
Luo Wanxiang, however, looked withered and defeated with his dharma idol wrapped in the damaged All Manifestations Star Banner.
Yu Suying took a glance at him and sighed. “He lost. I can’t believe he actually lost to Fan Tianze when the two of them were at the same cultivation base, and his divine tool was at a slightly higher grade than Fan Tianze’s.”
“After all, Fan Tianze was referred to as the ‘strongest expert below the peak’ before Mo Heng came along,” Ji Yuanquan said, full of respect.
Fan Tianze had been given this title long ago.
Everyone was convinced that he would be able to advance to the late God domain and reach the peak of human cultivation.
Only later, when Mo Heng had defeated Grand Monarch Bloodlust immediately after entering the middle God domain and survived his duel against Grand Monarch Primal Demon, had Mo Heng been put on the same heights as him.
Even so, many were still convinced that Fan Tianze was the stronger of the two.
After all, Mo Heng had only entered the middle God domain recently.
“Luo Wanxiang!” Grand Monarch Dark Nether yelled. “You were supposed to take care of Fan Tianze! We provided you with so many cultivation resources and let you study the Book of Spirits. Even your divine tool was upgraded! But you still lost to him?! “You just...!”
He seemed to be mad about how useless Luo Wanxiang was.
“Luo Wanxiang wasn’t known for his battle prowess to begin with among the Sons of the Stars of his generation,” Ye Wenhan muttered in a low voice. “Then again, even Ji Cang was only considered the second strongest.”
“What?” Huang Jinnan exclaimed in shock. “Then who was the strongest?”
Ye Wenhan suddenly fell silent, realizing that he shouldn’t have said that.
Ji Yuanquan and the others who knew who he was referring to were also sensible enough to remain silent.
Only Hou Chulan from the Five Elements Sect snuck a glance at Nie Tian with a complicated look in her eyes.
“The spatial rift is accessible now,” Pei Qiqi said, the Space Boundaries Crystal spinning in front of her.
As the spatial treasure continued to work its wonders, the slender spatial rift grew long and wide enough for multiple people to enter simultaneously.
“Where does it connect, Miss Pei?” Ye Wenhan asked.
“The Realm of Maelstrom,” Pei Qiqi answered.
Ye Wenhan nodded and said, “Great! Let’s return to the Realm of Maelstrom for now. The Domain-corroding Flames will become useless if we do.”
Hearing this, Zhang Qiling, Li Wanfa, Ling Bingyun, and all of the other Saint domain experts shot into the spatial rift.
The same went for Huang Jinnan, Hou Chulan, and the other Divine Sons and Daughters of the Five Elements Sect.
At the same time, loud rumbles came from the Phantasm starships that had been berthed in the distance.
Nie Tian took a quick glance, and spotted huge crystal-clear cannons on those ancient starships. “Heaven-shattering Crystal Cannons?!”
He had witnessed the might of a Phantasm Heaven-shattering Crystal Cannonback when he had been in the Domain of the Falling Stars. Therefore, he knew that they were extremely powerful, and could shatter realm barriers.
It had been just one Heaven-shattering Crystal Cannon back then, yet many sects had scrambled for it after the Phantasms’ retreat.
At this moment, multiple Heaven-shattering Crystal Cannons were lined up on the Phantasm starships, all pointing at the Realm of Maelstrom, as if the Phantasms were hoping to blow up the entire realm with them.
The Realm of Maelstrom had already become a hub for the Domain of the Falling Stars, the Domain of Heaven Python, and the Domain of Heaven’s Boundaries, and their window to the outside world.
However, he hadn’t built a grand spell formation to protect this special realm yet.
Would it perish under the heavy bombardment of these Heaven-shattering Crystal Cannons?
WHOOSH! WHOOSH! WHOOSH!
While Nie Tian had a headache over the tricky situation, glorious lights suddenly appeared in the distant starry river.
Ancient starships that belonged to the Divine Sons and Daughters of the Five Elements Sect blasted off glorious beams of energy towards the Phantasm starships.
Ruan Qingliu, Wang Haoming, Peng Yan, and many other Saint domain experts of the Five Elements Sect could be seen standing on those starships.
Hou Chulan and Huang Jinnan, who had just left through the spatial rift, also emerged on them.
Suddenly, the Phantasm starships were in serious trouble.
They were forced to adjust their Heaven-shattering Crystal Cannons to aim the Five Elements Sect starships.
Nie Tian went blank for a moment before realizing what had just happened.
Hou Chulan and the others had berthed their starships in distant areas before coming to check his situation.
Some of their subordinates had stayed behind to protect their starships.
The Fiends’ Domain-corroding Flames hadn’t reached the area where those starships were berthed.
Then, immediately after retreating to the Realm of Maelstrom through Pei Qiqi’s spatial rift, Hou Chulan and the others had teleported to their starships that were berthed outside the Realm of Maelstrom through teleportation portals.
Nie Tian’s eyes lit up. “Great! As long as they stay on their starships, the Domain-corroding Flames won’t be able to hurt them!”
In deafening rumbles and booms, he saw the ancient starships of the Five Elements Sect and the Phantasms engaging in a fierce battle in the starry river like two shoals of different fish.
More ancient starships sailed out from the Realm of Maelstrom.
“The Domain-corroding Flames won’t get to us as long as we stay on our starships!” Li Wanfa’s shout came from one of the starships.
Standing on starships, they charged back out, controlling their spiritual tools with their soul awareness.
Seeing this, Mo Qianfan, Yu Suying, Ji Yuanquan, and Ye Wenhan turned their heads around and dashed towards Grand Monarch Nether Channeler and Grand Monarch Dark Nether.
“Don’t imagine that you can return to your ancestral lands alive this time!” Ji Yuanquan exclaimed.
