Beastmaster of the Ages - Chapter 534
Chapter 534: 534
Weisheng Yunxi’s lifebound beast had eighty-eight stars . It was second only to Autarch Qian’s lifebound beast in the entire Theocracy . It was so gigantic that it covered the sun, overwhelming all other empyrean beasts present when it appeared on the battlefield .
Tianming raised his head and saw stars decorating the night sky . But when he looked closer, it was only the belly of a gigantic beast, the Nebula Emperor Whale .
It was three times as big as Lan Huang, and if one didn’t look at it closely enough, they would mistake it for a moving, starry sky .
The Nebula Emperor Whale unleashed a deep roar, shaking the entire Divine Capital . The radiance it was giving off allowed the dao palace’s Astral Legions a measure of vision in the night .
The Astral Emperor Tiger, Evernight Eagle, and other empyrean beasts were following it . Weisheng Yunxi stood on the whale’s head . She was tiny, compared to the whale, but she was a touchstone, and everyone from the dao palace followed behind her .
Spirit hazards began appearing, along with enemies . When Weisheng Yunxi led the masters and locked on to Dongyang Yun’s location, the battle instantly broke out . The Nebula Emperor Whale released another deep roar, and the shockwave made everyone cover their ears .
In the next moment, heaven and earth shone . It was the Nebula Emperor Whale unleashing its ability, Meteorite Storm . Everyone saw countless meteors streaking across the horizon when they raised their heads . The meteors came crashing down like a storm .
Many Theocrats were smashed on the spot by the densely packed meteorites . Whether beastmaster or lifebound beast, they were either severely injured or crushed instantly .
The Nebula Emperor Whale slammed down with its gigantic body . Weisheng Yunxi was standing on its head, a dazzling chain in her hand . With her cultivation as an empyrean saint, anyone who took a hit from her died instantly .
Everyone started making their moves once she began her massacre . With Bai Mo taking the lead, the ten Hall Kings followed the Astral Emperor Tiger and charged into the crowd . On the other side, Ye Yi led the seven Astral Kings to launch their attacks .
Jiang Ling didn’t dare treat it lightly and led thirty people beside Weisheng Yunxi . Although their enemies were their fellow clansmen, they didn’t go easy because of their familial ties . When they started their massacre, they killed more than anyone else .
Tianming was mixed in the crowd with his three lifebound beasts . This time, Meow Meow wasn’t asleep . The three of them were standing on Lan Huang, which was like a huge mountain as it charged into the Theocrats and unleashed its ability, Azure Oceanic Purgatory .
A fan-shaped region started turning into muddy water and spread out with Lan Huang at the tip of the fan . It caught many earth saints by surprise and they fell into the water .
Meow Meow ran on the water’s surface, unleashing its Chaos Disaster and Misty Hellthunder in the muddy water . Electricity started spreading out through the water, electrocuting everyone who was in it . Moreover, as Lan Huang pressed forth, the muddy terrain would spread out and drag more people down .
“What’s with the water all of a sudden?!”
“Quick, leave this place! They’re all powerhouses!”
They couldn’t stop Weisheng Yunxi with just a few dozen of them, not to mention that the dao palace’s army and Jiang Ling’s army were following right behind . They were charging with unstoppable momentum .
“What’s the matter with the Sun-Moon Imperial Formation? Unleash Spirit Hazards upon them!”
“There’s no moonlight energy tonight . The spirit hazards are too weak to deal with an army of three million!”
“Are they insane? Why’s the dao palace putting so much effort into this? Do they have a feud with His Majesty?”
It was initially an internal fight between Theocrats . But now, the dao palace had joined in, leaving Dongyang Yun dumbfounded . Even Weisheng Yunxi had made her move . They didn’t seem to be assisting Jiang Ling; they looked more like they were taking revenge!
That fact struck a significant blow to the morale of Dongyang Yun’s followers . Without moonlight energy empowering the spirit hazards, the dao palace and Jiang Ling’s faction immediately tore open a gap .
Dongyang Yun’s army couldn’t put up any resistance in front of this powerful foe . Their casualties were increasing at a rapid speed; any resistance was futile, and Dongyang Yun’s men subconsciously avoided the frontal confrontation .
They had already lost when they lost their cohesion . It was futile no matter how the generals and marshals called out to them . Three million targets was enough to weaken the Sun-Moon Imperial Formation as the charging behemoths dashed around like bolts of lightning . The lifebound beasts that were talented in defense were even more brutal in their charge .
In the next moment, the Seven Astral Legions and Jiang Ling’s army clashed with Dongyang Yun’s army . Their collision produced a series of explosions as countless abilities were thrown around . For a moment, the battlefield was filled with cries, yells, and screams .
Everyone could only see the enormous Nebula Emperor Whale, breaking apart Dongyang Yun’s army’s formation . Then, millions of soldiers followed behind it, ramming into the enemy’s ranks and creating chaos .
The allied armies held the advantage in numbers . With that advantage, they directly tore apart their enemy’s formation like a hot blade slicing through butter . The morale and fighting spirit of both sides were brought out . But in that regard, the two factions weren’t on the same level . Dongyang Yun’s army had been falling apart right from the beginning .
“Kill these traitors!”
“Long live His Majesty!”
“Jiang Ling and Weisheng Yunxi have to die!”
Dongyang Yun’s army was more experienced, as they often went to war . Tasked with the mission of protecting the Theocracy, they eventually started their counterattack after persevering through the first clash . It wouldn’t be easy to devour this army of eight hundred thousand .
But there was one thing they were helpless against: there wasn’t anyone capable of holding back the allied masters from tearing apart their formation and charging into the Imperial City .
“Enter the Imperial City and destroy the formation nuclei! Kill Dongyang Yun and take the Cyclic Mirror!” That was the dao palace’s objective . But there was no way Jiang Ling could allow them to achieve their goals .
As long as Autarch Yun died, Jiang Ling could fall out with the dao palace if he took the Cyclic Mirror . If the Sun-Moon Imperial Formation was destroyed, however, Jiang Ling would become trapped by the dao palace even if he won .
Tianming and Ye Lingfeng followed Li Wudi to destroy the formation nuclei . The crimson-haired man was fighting at the front, massacring his opponents with no one capable of stopping him . The saint beastial weapon that he was currently using was a Firstbane Saber . It was a weapon handed down by Li Shenxiao when he became the Decimo Dao Palace’s palace lord, and was rumored to also be from the Tomb of the Ancients .
The Firstbane Saber had ninety-two saintly heavenly patterns, making it even more potent than Weisheng Yunxi’s Radiant Astral Chain . It was apparent that Li Wudi had gotten a lot of good stuff from Weisheng Yunxi .
The Primordial Bloodbane Kunpeng transformed into a massive crimson kun and started causing chaos with Lan Huang in the Azure Oceanic Purgatory . Anyone pulled into the muddy water died nearly immediately .
“I never expected that my godson would snatch my title as the Grand-Orient Realm’s strongest genius . How depressing . I can only slaughter to relieve my depression!” Li Wudi growled .
“Godfather, you’re outdated . I’m now the strongest genius in the Theocracy of the Ancients . I’m not interested in snatching your title in the Grand-Orient Realm . You’re too shortsighted,” said Tianming .
“So presumptuous? Ha! I like that! I’ll be the second then!” Li Wudi replied .
“There’s already a second . You can be the third,” Tianming pointed to Ye Lingfeng .
“What?” Li Wudi was aggrieved . In the end, he could only vent his feelings on the Ancient Theocrats . Their enemies had already lost their fighting spirit . Many of them even gave way and allowed them into the formation .
But even so, Dongyang Yun’s army still managed to stall the allied army . Their objective was obvious—to cut the connection between the powerhouses and their army .
When the masters swept through, there was no one else in the front . The group finally managed to get through the formation’s range and reached the Imperial City together . When they entered, they were greeted by sky saints under Dongyang Yun’s authority . There were a thousand of them, and many of them were elites .
“It’s a serious crime to commit treason against the Theocracy! It’s an offense that will execute everyone in your family through nine generations! There’s still a chance for you if you surrender now . Otherwise, you’ll surely regret it for eternity!” the Grand Divine Marshal, Huang Chonghuan, roared .
“Go die!” Li Wudi replied .
This left everyone shocked, and they yelled, “Protect the marshal!”
