Otherworldly Evil Monarch - chapter-898
The three Venerables that the three Holy Lands sent out this time all
came from the Elusive World of Immortals. The three of them looked at
each other and smiled suavely as they stepped out with their robes
fluttering lightly in the wind. Although they were about to fight a
deathly match, their bearings were casual and easy. Their steps were
confident, and although they were facing the fierce auras of the
opponent, they did not seem to be worried at all.
One side was dressed in white, with casual attitudes and gleaming swords
by their side, while the other side was donned entirely in black, with
fierce murderous auras. The contrast was exceedingly stark.
The two were like naturally extremes of each other, and this time, they
were standing on opposite sides, preparing to begin a battle of life and
“From your point of views, which side do you think has a higher chance
in this first battle?” Qiao Ying furrowed her brows lightly and asked.
“This is a battle of life and death. Losing means death… it isn’t
easy for our Holy Lands to nurture experts. Each expert needs several
hundred years of bitter training before they can reach their current
levels. These people here are all the main forces of the War for Seizing
the Heavens. But a single miscalculation by Mo Wu Dao had resulted in
such a pointless battle… what a heartbreaking scene.”
“Even though our statuses are high, the decisions of the Holy Lands are
not something that we have a right to question. The choices made by all
the Palace Lords in the past are actually rather similar as well. I can
only say that this Mo Wu Dao’s luck this time was simply too rotten, to
come across a little monster like this that hadn’t appeared in even a
hundred generations.” Qu Wu Hui said with a light sigh. “However, I
still feel quite confident that this match will go in our favor.”
Cheng Yin Xiao nodded with approval. “The three from their side has
huge amounts of killing intent, and their auras and determination is
fierce and firm. Against normal enemies, just their fearsome auras will
be enough to frighten their enemies and allow them to win with ease.
However, this is also because they were unable to control their auras
with ease, resulting in their auras overflowing like this. In a battle
against high level experts, this kind of killing intent would easily
reveal their every move and location…”
Smiling casually, he continued. “One must know that in a battle, there
will be many fast changing situations; the movements of experts of such
levels are too fast to follow with the naked eye. One can only react
using their senses. Although the auras of the opponent seems fearsome, it
also reveals their fatal weak points. In contrast, the experts on our
side are relaxed and calm right from the start, showing no such weakness.
Even before the fight began, they’ve already won half the battle!
There’s no longer any need to worry about the results.”
At this time, the three experts from the Holy Lands were standing face to
face, their auras rising faintly.
“Looks like our guys have already seen through the opponents’
weakness. My guess is that the moment the battle begins, they will move
to thoroughly disrupt the opponents’ pace right from the beginning.
That would be the correct way to handle them.” Qu Wu Hui nodded with
satisfaction. “In this battle, although our side would also suffer some
injuries, the damage would not be too serious. As for the three on the
other side, I can already announce their death right now!”
Cheng Yin Xiao nodded his agreement. Their expressions were relaxed and
casual. Although it was only the first battle, obtaining a great result
this early would undoubtedly greatly increase everyone’s morale!
Just at this time, the three warriors from the Heaven Destroyer and
Spirit Devourer side suddenly changed their original formation. The
person in the center took two steps forward, the person on the left took
two steps backwards, and the person on the right took on step sideway.
With just a few simple steps, the three had already formed into an odd
But this battle formation was not just a simple triangular formation.
There was a sense of hidden distance within it. The person at the front
raised his head and puffed out his chest. His stalwart body bulged
menacingly, as if he could support the heavens and earth! The person
behind him was crouching down like a prowling leopard. As for the person
on the right, his steps were strange, and the side of his body faced the
outside. The killing intent around his body had faded by a huge extent.
This was an exceedingly strange battle formation!
In this world, such a battle formation had never appeared before!
“That formation is truly odd…” Cheng Yin Xiao furrowed his brows
and said. However, his expression soon eased. “However, it shouldn’t
affect the actual battle too much.”
Qiao Ying and Qu Wu Hui both also nodded lightly in agreement.
In a battle against high level experts, battle formations were basically
worthless. The main focus should be the cultivation and martial
techniques of the individual. No matter how ingenious the formation was,
in a fight between high level experts where the battle situation was
rapidly changing constantly, relying on a formation would only incur the
ridicule of the opponent.
Jun Mo Xie and Mei Xue Yan both had a light smile on their faces as they
looked disdainfully at the three Guardians trying to analyze the battle
formation. “Those three idiots!” Mei Xue Yan smiled brightly, her
eyes squinting adorably like summer flowers blooming…
There was nothing absolute in the world. The fact that there hadn’t
been any formations that could affect a high level battle in the past
didn’t mean that there wouldn’t be any now, or in the future!
What those Guardians didn’t know was that this weird triangular battle
formation was actually a formidable formation that Jun Mo Xie had
retrieved from the Hongjun Pagoda: the Heaven, Earth, Man; Three Extremes
The moment the formation was unleashed, the strengths of the three people
within the formation would overlap perfectly. There would be no
distinction between them anymore; the strength of each of them would be
the equivalent of the combined strength of the three of them together! In
other words, if the three of them attacked together, the combined
strength would be nine times greater than normal!
How could this be just a normal battle array?
Two voices rang out as the two sides suddenly clashed together!
The moment the battle began, it immediately exploded with great
intensity! In a battle of life and death, every move was a killing
technique. There were no space for mercy!
White shadows flashed across the sky as the three Venerables from the
Holy Lands attacked at the same time. In an instant, each person had
already unleashed at least a dozen skills. After that, they charged in
personally, beginning a fierce, close-ranged fight!
As for the other side, the three blacked robed experts did not charge
forward to meet them. Instead, they first unleashed a dazzling series of
position swapping maneuver, spinning like a windmill. Surprisingly, the
places where their feet landed had not changed from the start, and only
the people in each position were swapped.
Loud booms rang out continuously, and the battlefield was enveloped in a
cloud of sand and dust!
The Nine Nether Fourteenth Young Master’s eyes lit up as he mumbled to
himself. “This formation… is truly strange… but it’s really
The positions of the three muscular hulks changed continuously, but no
matter how it changed, the three’s feet never landed outside of their
original spots. All the attacks from the three Holy Lands’ Venerables
were blocked by the foremost man, while the other two took the chance to
madly attack the other sides!
The three black men were switching between each other constantly, but
there seemed to be a tangible and imperceptible giant net under each of
them. This invisible net combined the strengths of the three individuals
perfectly and evenly distributed them back to each person. Slowly, the
strengths of each person began to grow more and more powerful…
Only a mere instant had passed since the battle began when the initiative
turned from the Holy Land’s side to the defending black robed side.
Following that, as more time passed, the Venerables from the Holy
Land’s side were even falling into a disadvantage!
The battle was becoming more and more intense!
“Not good!” Cheng Yin Xiao’s pupils shrunk and he exclaimed with
surprise. “What happened? How did this battle end up like this? Could
it be that the strange formation of those three people is really so
“Strange things would happen every year, but there are especially many
strange things this year. A battle that was supposed to be a guaranteed
win actually ended up in such a state? As expected of the strongest power
of the Xuan Xuan Continent ah… there’s truly nothing that capable
people cannot do!”
A mocking voice drifted over from the side. Cheng Yin Xiao turned his
head and looked at the direction of the voice. Truthfully, he didn’t
even need to turn around. Apart from the Nine Nether Fourteenth Young
Master, there weren’t any other person who could talk that way and use
such a tone while saying such mocking words.
As expected, when his eyes swiveled around, the Nine Nether Fourteenth
Young Master was indeed standing several zhang beside him watching the
entertaining fight, having arrived soundlessly and without warning.
To experts above the Saint Emperor realm, such a distance was basically
non-existent. If Cheng Yin Xiao and the others really wanted to attack in
that moment, even the Nine Nether Fourteenth Young Master would have to
take quite a beating. However, that fellow was clearly courageous to
approach so closely. This kind of confidence could no longer be described
with courage deriving from having great skill!
Jun Mo Xie looked over and scoffed in his heart. Che, what courage
deriving from having great skill? That is simple the result of arrogance
that reached an extreme level! He did not even put the three experts in
his eyes at all, and he probably even hopes that they will attack. This
Young Master currently still doesn’t have that kind of power. If I had
such strength, this Young Master would behave even more exaggerated…
yes, more courageous deriving from having great skill!
Cheng Yin Xiao completely ignored the Nine Nether Fourteenth Young
Master’s mocking words. His gaze returned to the battle, and he mumbled
with furrowed brows. “Whether in personal strength, battle ability of
the entire group, or the perfect coordination with each other, our side
is clearly far superior than the opponent. Even if the few of us went
down personally, disregarding our cultivation and personal strength, our
coordination is not necessarily stronger than their’s! However… such
intricate coordinated attacks are actually being suppressed so
thoroughly? This matter is completely incomprehensible! It doesn’t make
sense no matter how we look at it!”
“The Heaven Saint Palace is truly becoming more and more backward with
time. How pitiful… To think that Guardians who are so much more
superior to Saint Emperors would actually be so lacking in judgement.
Looks like the day the Heaven Saint Palace completely falls and
disappears is near at hand!” The Nine Nether Fourteenth Young Master
chuckled softly and said in a scalding tone.
“This old man can only see that the positions that those three are
stepping on are somewhat strange. As for the rest, I really can’t tell
what is special about it. Brother Fourteenth has amazing judgement, so
why don’t you enlighten us about it?” Qu Wu Hui did not get angry,
and instead asked humbly.
Modesty and open mindedness were traits of accomplished men.
“The fates of those three from the Holy Lands are already decided.
They’re surely doomed!”
A dark light flashed in the Nine Nether Fourteenth Young Master’s eyes
as he continued. “This Young Master said that you guys lack judgement,
and I wasn’t kidding. You all only saw that the formation was strange,
but you couldn’t tell where the oddity laid…
“As long as you observe carefully, you’ll see that whenever those
three black robed men attack, their movements can be said to have
unpredictable changes. That is the main reason why it’s difficult to
see through. Although the battle formation they’re using is indeed
strange and unpredictable, their actual strengths are far from our level.
Even if their movements are exceedingly strange, it cannot escape from
our eyes. As long as there is enough time, traces of clues can be found.
And that is also how this Young Master saw through the intricacies of
this battle formation…”
