Chapter 1673: Blood of a Ghost Thearch
When Yi Yun only had a single Divine Lord Royal Seal, he was able to defeat Ghost Ming who was also a Ghost Thearch.
And now that Yi Yun’s cultivation level was that of a half-step Godly Monarch, he was completely different from the past!
In fact, after Yi Yun refined the Myriad Form Shura Pills, he already had the means to defeat the Luo King and Ghost Doctor. However, he was in Heaven Fey City after all. There was Ruins Emperor and the two Fey Patriarchs to consider.
The shock and awe rendered by the two Fey Patriarchs made Yi Yun hold back.
By appearing weaker than he was, he could deal a fatal blow at the critical moment.
Previously, apart from Lin Xintong and Shan Ling, no one, even Blood King and Jiang Xiaorou, knew of Yi Yun’s true strength.
This also caused Ruins Emperor to make a horrendous judgment error. He thought he could use the hand of the Luo King to maim Yi Yun during his weakness from transcending the Heavenly Tribulation.
Unbeknown to him, Yi Yun was already unafraid of the threat of the Luo King and Ghost Doctor when he transcended the tribulations.
Now that he had transcended the Chaos Heavenly Tribulation, Yi Yun was absolutely fearless!
Under the terrifying nomological blow, Ghost Doctor’s body began rapturing.
His flesh, blood and bones fragmented and scattered!
Even Ghost Doctor’s head was cleaved off. Two soul fires flickered as his long tongue hung out. He was in deep pain.
With a tap, Yi Yun directly reached Ghost Doctor’s glabella.
This strike contained the Dao of Destruction that directly anihilated Ghost Doctor’s soul mark. The two soul fires at his eyes gradually extinguished.
Upon seeing this happen, everyone in Heaven Fey City was astounded.
They widened their eyes as their throats twitched. They were left at a loss for words.
Yi Yun had killed a Ghost Thearch straight up!
The entire battle did not take more than a minute!
For a half-step Godly Monarch to slay a Ghost Thearch and even snatch away his Ghost pearl, Ghost Doctor was completely within Yi Yun’s control from beginning to the end.
All his resistance was futile!
The difference in strength was massive!
Not a single Fey Thearch present had such strength. The strongest among them could at best defeat Ghost Doctor. Killing him would be a fool’s dream.
And the weaker ones were unlikely to have much of an advantage over Ghost Doctor.
That meant that Yi Yun had the ability to kill any one of them!
At that moment, even the Ruins Emperor felt his head buzz.
Yi Yun had concealed his strength too well!
He had been completely fooled.
Even if Yi Yun’s strength increased exponentially because of his transcendence of the Heavenly Tribulation, it was impossible to reach this stage.
By inference, it was likely that after he consumed the Myriad Form Shura Pills, or even at the moment he arrived at the Heaven Fey Ancient Ruins, he already possessed the strength to deal with Fey Thearchs!
This was way too terrifying!
Who would have imagined that a human junior would possess such terrifying strength?
The present Yi Yun had already developed into a powerhouse. Ruins Emperor believed that he was no match for Yi Yun. Even the Patriarchs might not be able to suppress Yi Yun!
It could be said that Yi Yun had already elevated himself to the top echelons of the Chaos Heavens in terms of combat strength.
Even if the entire Heaven Fey Ancient Ruins was placed in front of him, he could face it as an equal. It was fool’s talk to force Yi Yun to do anything. Any deals would have to depend on Yi Yun’s mood.
And this was only just the beginning.
In time to come, if Yi Yun continued developing his strength, it would be…
Ruins Emperor did not dare think further.
The strongest expert in the Chaos Heavens!
Yi Yun would develop himself to become the strongest expert in the Chaos Heavens in the future!?
That was such a promising future. The thought that he tried to scheme against such a terrifying figure previously left Ruins Emperor feeling a lingering fear.
Thankfully, Ruins Emperor was careful by nature. He did not try to personally deal with Yi Yun and had simply left Luo King to his machinations by acquiescence.
It was unreasonable to wish for the Ruins Emperor to go out and protect Yi Yun. Therefore, it still appeared that decorum was upheld.
At that moment, Yi Yun extended his hand and grabbed Ghost Doctor’s soul body. With his mental imprint destroyed, the soul body had lost its strength. Yi Yun shattered the soul body and infused the soul fragments into his body.
Following that, Poison Demon appeared and widened his jaws. He devoured Ghost Doctor’s remnant corpse and soul whole!
All that was left was the Ghost Thearch’s interspatial ring which landed in Yi Yun’s hand.
Poison Demon was exhilarated!
Together with the Ghost pearl it just devoured, it was equivalent to Poison Demon having swallowed a complete Ghost Thearch!
The entire body of a Fey Thearch level Fey beast or Fey plant was a treasure, and naturally, so was a Ghost Thearch’s!
However, humans and Ghosts were different. A Ghost Thearch’s corpse was of little use to a human warrior, but to Poison Demon, it was a supreme treasure among supreme treasures.
Furthermore, Ghost Doctor cultivated in the poison arts. From the time he embarked on his ghost cultivation, he had researched countless poisons and medicines. All of these had subtly fused into his flesh and blood, and had been refined for tens of millions of years.
It could be said that Ghost Doctor’s body was a supreme-grade container of poison.
And these poisons were now the possession of Poison Demon!
Poison Demon was Yi Yun’s contract beast. A portion of its strength came from Yi Yun.
Originally, after Yi Yun transcended the Chaos Heavenly Tribulation, Poison Demon had already experienced a drastic increase in strength. Now, with Ghost Doctor’s fresh corpse, its strength soared!
“Master, thank you for giving me new life! Hahahaha!”
Poison Demon laughed maniacally. It began digesting Ghost Doctor’s powers. The Ghost pearl had now become core to Poison Demon.
Inside Poison Demon’s body, countless green threads stabbed into the Ghost pearl as they constantly drew its powers.
The metamorphosing Poison Demon emitted a terrifying suppressive might.
Its looks were originally nothing much to speak of, but at that moment, it was floating in midair, emanating an aura that could suppress that of Ghost Thearch. It was as though he had transformed into a peerless Demon God!
Upon seeing Poison Demon flaunting his strength, everyone felt despair.
Ignoring the fact that Yi Yun was ridiculously strong, even his contract beast was this powerful?
As Fey Thearchs, they might not even be the ugly Poison Demon’s match, much less be capable of dealing with Yi Yun!
Furthermore, Yi Yun had previously summoned the Azure Wood Divine Tree.
The tree likely had the strength to match a Fey Thearch as well.
For a person to have two Fey Thearch beings under his control, what sort of concept was this?
The Heaven Fey Ancient Ruins’ patriarchs were powerful, capable of calling upon nearly twenty Fey Thearchs, but they were only their subordinates. They listened to them in name, but in fact, feigned compliance while acting in opposition.
But Yi Yun was different. Yi Yun had contracted beasts who had full allegiance to him!
These were only the trump cards that Yi Yun had shown. Who knew what his true means were?
“Rou’er, your brother…”
Blood King looked at Yi Yun, his expression extremely complicated.
Back when he summoned Yi Yun, it was because he was impressed by him. Who knew that Yi Yun was such a freak?
He had planned on helping Yi Yun because of Jiang Xiaorou, but now, from the looks of it, Yi Yun had no need for his help.
For him to help Yi Yun refine the Myriad Form Shura Pills, it was giving him aid in his time of need before he developed his strength.
In a way, he had left Yi Yun indebted to him.
“Father, I never imagined Yun’er to be this powerful. I thought that with you finding me, my growth has been without setbacks for the past few centuries as my strength grew by leaps and bounds. I thought that none of my peers could match me, but compared to Yun’er, I’m still far inferior.”
Upon hearing Jiang Xiaorou’s words, Blood King chuckled ruefully. “Don’t bring it up. I thought that I was your biggest backer originally. But now from the looks of it, your brother is a stronger backer than me.”
After cultivating for so many years, paying an immeasurable price for cultivating in the Indestructible Killing Dao, and his astounding opportunities in the Tian Yuan world, he had already reached the limits of a warrior. However, he could only lament his inadequacies when compared to Yi Yun.
“In time to come, when your brother fully develops his strength, it will be nothing even if you can’t be Ruins Empress,” said the Blood King wistfully.
Years ago, Blood King did not become Ruins Emperor and was far from the mark. By being Ruins Emperor, one gained better cultivation resources. It was obviously an alluring proposition.
But the Ruins Emperor was after all the spokesperson of the two Fey Patriarchs. If the Fey Patriarchs felt that any nurturing was lost on the Ruins Emperor, they would switch the ruler.
How could this be comparable to being Yi Yun’s elder sister?
Yi Yun’s future was possibly that of the strongest person in the Chaos Heavens!
This status was completely incomparable in honor.
Poison Demon emitted his suppressive might for nearly an hour. The phenomenon that appeared could only be said to outdo a Fey Thearch’s breakthrough.
With the drastic increase in strength, Poison Demon seemed to grow dizzy with success. It was a demon that became delirious with joy to begin with. Now that it felt its strength increase, it was eager to let it all out.
“Master, are there some old entrails that need killing here? There’s no need to trouble yourself with killing them. Let me cripple him!”
Poison Demon stared at Luo King intently as it revealed a cruel smile.
It wished to engage in a massive battle and revel in the delight of delivering its mighty blows. It was also a way to express its loyalty to Yi Yun.
Although there was the soul contract in place, making Poison Demon completely loyal to Yi Yun in body and mind, as a servant, Poison Demon had to demonstrate his value. If not, what right did it have to be bestowed with so many goodies?
Upon hearing Poison Demon issue the challenge, Luo King’s expression turned as black as a wok’s bottom.
He saw Ghost Doctor’s death very clearly. Since Yi Yun could kill Ghost Doctor, he naturally could kill him as well.
He never imagined that his life would one day be in the hands of a junior.
Of course, the Luo King was different from Ghost Doctor.
He was an ancient Heaven Fey after all. Yi Yun was unlikely to kill him in Heaven Fey City.
“I know who you are…” Luo King took a deep breath as his eyes shimmered. “There was a rumor previously that a Heavenly Dao fragment appeared in the Xuanyuan Dune. A few miners that are in the Chaos Crystal business fooled the entire Chaos Heavens to vie for the Heavenly Dao fragment. Eventually, the Heavenly Dao fragment was snatched by a human…”
“I originally thought that the rumor was not to be believed. Now, I have to believe it. That human was you, right?”
When Luo King said that, everyone was alarmed.
Snatched the Heavenly Dao fragment!?
When they thought back to how Yi Yun had defeated Ghost Doctor, it was as though he was in full control of the Heavenly Dao. It was not impossible that Yi Yun had refined the Heavenly Dao fragment!
However… the Heavenly Dao fragment was something only the peerless Celestial experts could refine. Apart from them, the Fey, Ghost, and Soul experts could only watch powerless. How did Yi Yun, a human whose cultivation level was merely at the Divine Lord level, manage to refine the Heavenly Dao fragment?
That was simply unbelievable.
“If you think so…” Yi Yun looked at Luo King as the corner of his mouth suffused rich killing intent. Very well, he never imagined that Luo King would bite back at him just before his death!
