Chapter 2806: All Mobilised
Along the way, the invincible strength that the Darkstar Emperor demonstrated filled the Primordial realm Life-devouring Beasts with fear. None of the Life-devouring Beasts he had seen earlier actually possessed the courage to fight him.
But now, a bone arrow from the depths of the vegetation was actually able to reach a stalemate with the Darkstar Emperor. It had not been repelled or injured in a single strike like the other weaker Life-devouring Beasts.
All of this suggested that the Life-devouring Beast that had launched the bone arrow must possess strength extremely close to the Darkstar Emperor, or even equal strength.
Mid-air, the bone arrow constantly released great power in the form of resplendent light. As a terrifying attack that could even make the hall masters of the Darkstar race pale, it constantly pushed against the Darkstar emperor.
The tip of the Darkstar Emperor’s figure also condensed terrifying power. The energy was so pure that it was enough to faze any Primordial realm expert of the Saints’ World. It had almost become tangible, basically having crystallized already. It poked an inch out from the tip of his figure, clashing with the bone arrow and wearing each other down.
But in the end, the bone arrow was still the one to run out of energy. Without the support of any backup energy sources, it was not the Darkstar Emperor’s opponent at the end of the day. Just when it was about to run out of energy, it turned around and disappeared back into the depths of the forest.
It was also at this moment that the hazy white sky enveloped by thick mist near the Darkstar Emperor suddenly darkened. A huge shadow fell rapidly from the sky with a colossal pressure, directly engulfing the Darkstar Emperor below.
This was an extremely large Primordial realm Life-devouring Beast. The pressure that it gave off was so powerful that it did not pale in comparison to the Darkstar Emperor. As it fell down, an extremely sharp bone arrow had already shot out, stabbing straight towards the Darkstar Emperor.
This Life-devouring Beast that could rival the Darkstar Emperor was clearly the owner of the bone arrow from earlier.
The Darkstar Emperor remained calm. His presence rose up as indescribably pure energy erupted like a tsunami. He directly punched out.
His punch moved faster than the bone arrow. Before the arrow had even approached him, he had already landed his attack on the Life-devouring Beast. There was a deafening boom, and the falling shadow of the Life-devouring Beast immediately halted before the punch actually pushed it away. In the end, there was a heavy rumble, and its powerful body struck the ground heavily like a mountain, shaking up the surroundings.
However, it had managed to land with balance, having endured the powerful attack of the Darkstar Emperor. This powerful Life-devouring Beast did not suffer any wounds, as if its hide was thick enough to completely endure the attacks from the Darkstar Emperor.
Only now could its figure be made out. It was a Life-devouring Beast several thousand meters in length, resembling an earthdrake. There were nine huge bone arrows protruding from its back.
The arrows could clearly change in size. During the first long-ranged attack, it had only been around ten meters long, but looking at it now, every single one of them were several hundred meters long.
It was clearly not the first time that the earthdrake and the Darkstar Emperor had met. Its eyes were filled with hatred. As soon as it landed on the ground, it let out a deep roar and directly charged at the Darkstar Emperor.
Immediately, a battle that could shake up the entire mountain range erupted between the earthdrake and the Darkstar Emperor. Booms rang out constantly, as if they wanted to bring the sky down.
The earthdrake had also reached the Ninth Heavenly Layer of Infinite Prime, at the same realm of cultivation as the Darkstar Emperor. However, as they clashed, it was clearly slightly weaker than the Darkstar Emperor.
The Darkstar Emperor was simply too powerful. He had already been suppressed by the Grand Exalt’s will in the Two World Mountains, such that he was unable to unleash his full strength, yet he was still able to maintain some advantage as he faced the strongest Life-devouring Beast of the Two World Mountains under these circumstances.
He had the upper hand, but it was still very difficult for the Darkstar Emperor to defeat the earthdrake. That was because the earthdrake’s defences were far too powerful. None of the attacks from the Darkstar Emperor were able to cause any severe injuries. Even if he left behind a few small wounds, they would close up in the blink of an eye in the face of the earthdrake’s terrifying life force.
And, the earthdrake would constantly replenish its energy within the Two World Mountains. As long as it remained here, its energy would recover constantly. It was truly endless.
As they clashed, the Primordial realm Life-devouring Beasts that rushed over all arrived one after another. They joined in on the battle to encircle the Darkstar Emperor with the earthdrake.
The Darkstar Emperor was in an encirclement of several dozen Primordial realm Life-devouring Beasts!
Jian Chen watched the Darkstar Emperor’s movements closely from elsewhere in the mountain range. The Darkstar Emperor did not disguise his presence, and the disturbance from the fighting was just too great. With Jian Chen’s strength at the Primordial realm, he knew what was going on even without paying special attention.
However, when he discovered that the Darkstar Emperor could actually hold off all the Life-devouring Beasts of the entire mountain range alone, it left him slightly shocked.
If the Darkstar Emperor displayed such great strength in the territory of the Darkstar race, he would not be surprised at all, as the Darkstar Emperor already possessed the battle prowess of a Chaotic Prime. Even killing all these Life-devouring Beasts by himself would make perfect sense.
But this was the Two World Mountains. He remained so powerful despite having his strength suppressed, which forced Jian Chen to reevaluate the Darkstar Emperor’s strength.
At this moment, Jian Chen’s expression changed. Several million kilometers away, the senses of his soul discovered someone familiar.
It was the vice hall master of the fifth divine hall, Dou Wujin. He had arrived in the depths of the mountains too, but unlike how brazen the Darkstar Emperor had been, Dou Wujin kept his presence completely concealed, searching through the depths carefully. He constantly used a secret technique in an attempt to sense for something. He did not alarm any Life-devouring Beasts. He even went out of his way to avoid Godking Life-devouring Beasts.
Jian Chen could discover Dou Wujin, but Dou Wujin was unable to discover Jian Chen, as even the senses of outsiders would be greatly limited here, let alone members of the Darkstar race.
Jian Chen’s soul was different too. Combined with him purposefully hiding it, even if he ran into people at higher cultivation levels than him, they would still struggle to detect the senses of his soul in the unique environment of the Two World Mountains.
Soon after he discovered Dou Wujin, the senses of Jian Chen’s soul enveloped another area. Five hundred kilometers from Dou Wujin, the tenth hall master, Feng Xue, had appeared too.
It was not only the two of them. Jian Chen even spotted the vice hall master of the seventh divine hall, An Lie.
The Two World Mountains were so large that even if Jian Chen expanded the senses of his soul completely, he would struggle to envelope even a tenth of it. Yet, he actually managed to discover three Primordial realm experts of the Darkstar race in such a short amount of time within the range his soul covered. This immediately made Jian Chen shiver as an absurd thought crossed his head. Surely the Primordial realm experts of the Darkstar race had not all been mobilised.
But in the next moment, he took off in a flash and rapidly flew towards the lake where he had left behind Kun Tian’s armour and sword.
