Chapter 1550: Attack
The Purple Cloud Mine was one of the three largest and most valuable mines in the territory governed by the Jialan Monarch. It was one of the three main mines and was able to produce different attributed immortal stones. Emperor-ranked stones would appear frequently as well. Not only that, even for stones with grades exceeding the emperor-rank had appeared before.
Hence, to the Jialan Monarch, the importance of this mine was far superior to the mine that was plundered back then. The guards stationed here all had cultivation bases far higher than the excavators.
At this moment, two powerful mid-stage immortal emperors were stationed here. They were in charge of collecting the harvest personally. The power of the guards here was simply terrifying to the extreme.
There were also a total of six teleportation arrays that directly connected to the Jialan Monarch’s emperor palace. Also, the Purple Cloud Mine itself wasn’t that far away from one of the main cities. Even if the teleportation arrays were damaged, the Jialan Monarch could still directly teleport to the nearby main city and fly here as soon as possible.
Hence, bandits usually wouldn’t dare to touch the Purple Cloud Mine. Ordinary bandits would never dare to take such a risk as the defense level of this mine was just too high.
In addition, roughly about more than two years ago, a case of banditry had occurred in one of Jialan Monarch’s mines. From this, one could very well imagine how tight security was nowadays.
At a location extremely far away from the Purple Cloud Mine, the Evil Emperor continued flying forward with great speed, and there were many experts on his back. Qin Wentian could see that the strength of this group was far more terrifying than the bandit group he saw before. There were more experts, including more immortal emperors among them.
“Qin Wentian.” At this moment, Ye Qianyu’s voice sounded out in Qin Wentian’s mind. His eyes flashed as he cast a glance at her.
“Although the Jialan Monarch is a mid-stage immortal emperor, he is still one of the nine monarchs under the Lifire Empyrean, in charge of a vast territory. Do not underestimate his strength. After the battle starts, you have to avoid him. Your target is to eliminate as many enemy peak-stage immortal kings as you can and lure initial-stage emperors to hunt you down before you finish them off.” Ye Qianyu spoke.
Qin Wentian’s countenance froze slightly. Ye Qianyu actually told him to avoid the Jialan Monarch. Seems like the combat prowess of the Jialan Monarch was truly extraordinary. The other party might be able to kill him easily.
Right now, he has already been in the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms for a period of time. He had more understanding about the situation here and he naturally wouldn’t overestimate himself. There would surely be many extraordinary characters in this world.
“Right. Palace mistress, you seem to know that the Jialan Monarch would appear for sure. In that case, do we clash head-on with his forces for this operation?” Qin Wentian transmitted his voice over and asked.
“Just wait and watch the drama. Don’t worry, I will only kill the guards. I won’t act against the innocent excavators.” Ye Qianyu smiled as she transmitted her voice. Qin Wentian didn’t say anything. Ye Qianyu was the Night Empyrean’s daughter and her enemy was two out of the nine empyreans under the Lifelong Realmlord. The Lifire Palace and the nine monarchs under it had once worked together to kill her entire family. She naturally had to take revenge.
In addition, as a bandit. She would always be in opposition to those from the side of ‘justice.’
The lion continued flying forward. Finally, they arrived at the airspace above the Purple Cloud Mine. Qin Wentian turned his gaze below only to see countless sharp gazes glancing up right at them.
“Kill.” Ye Qianyu coldly commanded. After that, the armored experts from this bandit group all descended down from the air. They actually didn’t destroy the teleportation arrays like they did last time but chose to start a direct attack.
Qin Wentian’s heart trembled. Ye Qianyu’s operation this time around, was clearly intentionally a provocation to the Jialan Monarch.
In the air, countless beams of light descended. The gigantic lion Evil Emperor directly roared and rushed towards the two mid-stage emperors while disregarding everything. Ye Qianyu was clad in armor and had an inky-black spear in her hand that was shimmering with the darkness of night. As she pierced out with her weapon, a swath of darkness descended upon her targets.
Numerous experts hurriedly rushed out. Inside the domain of darkness, their immortal senses were actually obstructed, they couldn’t see anything.
The Evil Emperor snarled, the light from his eyes shot into the mind of one of the mid-stage immortal emperors, targeting his soul. He opened his bloody maw and sought to swallow his opponent whole. That mid-stage immortal’s countenance drastically changed as he retreated with explosive speed.
A green light gushed forth from the Evil Emperor, stopping his target’s movements, directly devouring him. This caused everyone to be stunned. A powerful mid-stage emperor was instantly swallowed up just like that.
Qin Wentian’s heart pounded. In the Supreme Ancient Immortal Realms, the death of immortal emperors seemed to be an extremely ordinary matter. It wouldn’t create too much commotion.
The crowd battle instantly erupted. Qin Wentian rushed out, his fingers were used as swords and every stab he made would surely kill an enemy immortal king. In a few short moments, many experts died. But right now, the teleportation array in the mine lit up as another group of experts appeared. What made Qin Wentian shocked was that the Jialan Monarch was actually among this group.
The Jialan Monarch wasn’t in his emperor palace but was fully prepared all this while? Clearly, he has not forgotten about the plunder two plus years ago. He was waiting for an opportunity to capture the bandits and now, the bandits really did appear again.
The teleportation array from the emperor palace leading to the Purple Cloud Mine lit up as more and more experts appeared, flying towards here. Qin Wentian soon saw a familiar figure. This figure exuded an ice-like aura but was incomparably beautiful. She was naturally none other than Beiming Youhuang. She came here today as well.
“Evil Emperor.” The Jialan Monarch saw the Evil Emperor kill a mid-stage immortal emperor who was his subordinate as his expression turned ashen, radiating a terrifying killing intent.
The two mid-stage immortal emperors guarding here were instantly killed by the Evil Emperor. Clearly, this party was here to declare war on him, showing no mercy when they acted, destroying two immortal emperors at the very first moment they could.
This two mid-stage immortal emperors in addition to the two initial-stage immortal emperors who died back then… In a short three years, he actually lost four powerful emperor-ranked subordinates. This was sufficient to cause his heart to ache. In the future, he still needed to recruit experts and had to renegotiate conditions, nurturing them heavily to foster trust.
The Evil Emperor howled and directly rushed at the Jialan Monarch. His jade-green eyes imprinted themselves in the Jialan Monarch’s mind yet at the next instant, the eyes of Jialan Monarch also turned extremely terrifying to behold, capable of trapping others too. A fearsome aura gushed forth from his body, devouring the emperor light from the Evil Emperor.
The entire being of the Jialan Monarch grew incomparably resplendent, like a candle shining brightly in the night. Terrifying runes manifested around him, creating booms of thunder as they summoned numerous phantom-like snake-dragons which spiralled about in the air.
“DIE!” The Jialan Monarch roared. The snake-dragons danced wildly in the wind, converging together to form a giant beast that rushed at the Evil Emperor, producing a deafening blast due to the impact. Violent auras gushed about from the impact as the experts in the surroundings all retreated, avoiding this battlefield.
The giant beast resembled a dragon, but not like one. It also resembled a snake, but not completely so. It had a malevolent countenance and a pair of demonic eyes as it spiralled in circles above the head of the Jialan Monarch.
The eyes of the Jialan Monarch gleamed as he stared at the lion king. “Evil Emperor. After the death of the Night Empyrean, you are still making trouble everywhere. Today, this monarch shall destroy you.”
The Evil Emperor moved forward. His jade-green eyes were demonic to the extreme. Ye Qianyu came over as well. She had a spear of darkness in her hand and her countenance was extremely cold.
“Where is Qin Wentian?” Beiming Youhuang’s icy gaze shot over as she coldly asked. This caused Qin Wentian who was at the side to start in astonishment.
Ye Qianyu glanced at Beiming Youhuang. Her revealed eyes flashed with brightness. Was this the beautiful senior sister of Qin Wentian? This woman was truly a supreme beauty in her own right.
At this moment, a figure frenziedly killed his way over to Beiming Youhuang, causing Qin Wentian to be stunned. That figure who was attacking Beiming Youhuang, was actually the fully armored Barbarian Emperor.
Beiming Youhuang’s body glowed with emperor light as a cold intent flooded her surroundings, instantly freezing everything. The Barbarian Emperor’s body was directly frozen. He howled in rage, breaking through the ice. Beiming Youhuang radiated an extremely strong killing intent as she stepped forward. With a wave of her hand, another death-like ice qi gushed forth.
“Given Youhuang’s strength, there shouldn’t be any problems for her to deal with the Barbarian Emperor.” Qin Wentian silently mused. Beiming Youhuang was a supreme demon-level genius back in the Azure Mystic Immortal Realms. She was the youngest to break through to the immortal emperor realm in the Darknorth Immortal Dynasty and has also ascended to the peak of the Demongod Mountain. She broke through after cultivating in the Heavenly Dao Sacred Academy and there was no need to doubt her talent. It was just because of her beauty, her talent in cultivation might be disregarded by some.
“Have you forgotten to fight just because you saw your lover?” Ye Qianyu’s voice rang out in Qin Wentian’s mind, filled with a teasing tone. Qin Wentian was speechless. He then hurriedly stepped out, moving towards a peak-stage immortal king. With an intention, the eye-technique dimension appeared. Sword qi roared within, directly finishing off his opponent.
The him now, has already recovered his cultivation base to his past peak. Those who were on the same level as him, basically couldn’t even withstand a single strike. Even if he doesn’t depend on the law domains he established, just a simple punch or sword strike was sufficient to slay his opponents.
Around Qin Wentian, a region of swords appeared. Every time he stepped out, boundless sword intent would gushed forth, killing many immortal kings in the blink of an eye.
“Bzz~” A raging wind gusted forth as an immortal emperor moved towards Qin Wentian. It was one of the two immortal emperors that appeared together with the Jialan Monarch back then when he was in Windthunder City.
Qin Wentian retreated back, quickly fleeing in the opposite direction. That immortal emperor snorted, how could he spare Qin Wentian? Emperor light glowed around his body as a giant prison appeared, trapping both him and Qin Wentian within. This was one of his law domains. The unending flow of astral light from his constellation would provide a ceaseless source of energy for this prison formed from his laws!
