Chapter 122: Exiting the Heaven Dome
A flash of light flickered. Wei Suo, dressed in a plain, disguised robe, strolled out from the transportation array within the mountain valley, nearest to Cyan Wind Mound.
Watching a solo travelling Wei Suo heading out of the mountain valley, the two Heaven’s First Sect disciples tasked with guarding this transportation array scorned disdainfully at him……
The two disciples guarding over this transportation array had adequately high cultivations, and were both Divine Sea stage level 4. As for Wei Suo, he was currently hiding a layer of cultivation with the ‘Secret-Concealment Art’, and was merely at Divine Sea stage level 5. If under normal circumstances, the two Heaven’s First Sect disciples wouldn’t gaze with such disdain at Wei Suo.
But appearing at Cyan Wind Mound at such a time, the two disciples could tell Wei Suo was here for Sky Valley even without thinking.
As the surrounding Five-colored venom miasma gradually thinned, the amount of cultivators using this transportation array had reached into the 6-7 hundreds. The usually deserted Cyan Wind Mound had long been swept clean by the travelling cultivators. At present, there was probably not a single level 2 demonic beast.
Don’t even mention sects from Spirit Peak City. Even the dozens of other cities near them, and countless sect cultivators had already gathered around Sky Valley……
Most of these cultivators were Heavenly Circuit stage cultivators, and some were even at Thought Division stage.
There were also some Divine Sea stage level 5 cultivators, but they came in packs of 3-5, and under the lead of a Heavenly Circuit cultivator, all gearing up to enter Sky Valley.
Solo Divine Sea stage cultivators like Wei Suo were still present. However in the masses eyes, a Divine Sea stage cultivator venturing into Sky Valley had casualty rates exceeding 50%.
At present, many cultivators were assembled at the outskirts of Sky Valley; awaiting the day the dispersing Five-colored venom miasma vanished completely.
There were even some cultivators with high resistance to poison, or cultivators with formidable poison-evading artifacts who had already entered Sky Valley. Howls of demonic beasts and clamorous might of skill techniques were already reverberating out from within……..
Cultivators rushing towards were plentiful as well. As he passed through Cyan Wind Mound, Wei Suo had already witnessed several flashes of light all heading towards the direction of Sky Valley.
Seeing the situation now, Wei Suo wasn’t the least bit nervous. He hadn’t even summoned his White-jade Crane, and was only utilizing his Wind-cloud shoe.
Besides, though early entry would guarantee one to discover and plunder spirit medicines first, the waves of cultivators and demonic beasts were also the largest in quantity, it was the riskiest in theory.
With a thousand li radius, the vast Sky Valley would slowly separate the density of cultivators inside the region, once most cultivators ventured deeper into it. Moreover, Wei Suo had a clear objective in mind, and that was searching for an Amethyst-Fox rose that even spiritual stones couldn’t purchase. If he could acquire one, then his motive would simply be pillaging whatever fortunes he could, and if the situation became drastically vile, Wei Suo would simply take flight. He wouldn’t continue adventuring into greater dangers……
It wasn’t far travelling from Cyan Wind Mound to the legendary Heaven Dome, rumored to be created by an ancient almighty…….
After flying leisurely for a period of time, Heaven Dome wall appeared before his very eyes, joining the skies and the earth.
A tremendously colossal, unthinkable white, and brightly illuminated canopy.
Rising from the ground and linking up endlessly into the skies. Even a high level demonic beast with shocking flying abilities and speed would find it impossible to ascend the peak of the Heaven Dome wall.
The same could be said for Golden Pellet stage cultivators. It was simply impossible to exceed the altitude of Heaven Dome. It seemed like the entire Heaven Dome linked to outer space itself……
This Heaven Dome wasn’t merely heaven surpassing, it even extended to the unfathomable abyss. Even a demonic beast with burrowing abilities would find it impossible to drill and infiltrate through the Heaven Dome wall.
Such a colossal creation, the Heaven Dome that existed for untold thousands of years. The Heaven Dome that could prevent high level demonic beast from infiltrating through. What kind of sovereign nature did it possess?
Stretching out for unknown thousands of li, encompassing the entire Heavenly Profound continent. The white, illuminated canopy finally scattered a sense of vacancy, a merciful aura, causing a reverence to emerge in all cultivator’s hearts.
Wei Suo similarly halted in front of the white, brightly illuminated canopy.
He stretched his hand out, touching the white layer.
Like passing through water, Wei Suo’s hand easily slipped in.
He then retracted it, the white canopy rippled slightly….
He scanned the Heaven dome and the wilderness behind it. Wei Suo’s eyes brimmed with respect and disbelief.
Then his figure blurred, penetrating through the Heaven Dome.
Beyond the Heaven Dome. An unimaginable stretch of desolated wilderness.
Various kinds of archaic trees stretched to the skies, their thickness of dozens of individuals wrapped together. Compared to within the Heaven Dome, the trees were all disheveled and disorderly, uncouth and gave an impression of barbarous abnormality; a scarce and neglected sensation.
Occasionally, weirdly shaped demonic beasts would flash through the forest, species that weren’t seen inside the Heaven Dome. Even if one stood at the pinnacle of the tallest archaic tree and stared into the distance, one could only see speckles of monotonous colors, an unbroken wilderness, forests without an end in sight.
Inside the Heaven Dome, cultivators controlled the world. As for here, at least for the most part, demonic beasts reigned supreme……
A regiment of cyan light surged towards a mountain valley, a valley littered with multiple archaic towering trees with iron-black bark.
The cyan light was emitted by a cyan jade palm-leaf fan, as wide as 6 metres. Standing over it were 3 Heavenly Circuit stage level 1 cultivators.
In the middle was a dignified looking middle-aged cultivator; he was wearing a yellow dragon robe, with a white jade slung at his waist. On his left was a well-rounded beauty, clad in spring green palace robes. On his right was a roughly 30 year old cultivator in a lean black robe.
In a blink of an eye, the cyan jade palm-leaf fan looking flying artifact soared up towards the mountain valley before descending downwards.
As the trio were about to descend into the mountain valley, an abrupt green flash flickered from beneath, producing a luxuriant green light screen……
The three extraordinarily dressed Heavenly Circuit cultivators’ expressions changed drastically; immediately halting their descent, they swiftly left the upper region of the mountain valley.
Within the luxuriant greenery of the mountain valley, was an old man in a white robe. He had an arrogant expression, and emanated clumps of white cloudy energy as he sat on a large boulder.
Just ahead of him, was a closely packed gathering of 40 cultivators.
Amongst the 40 cultivators, 20 were wearing various colored robes, while the other 20 were wearing a similar robe – a green robe that emitted wooden element spirit energy.
Of the 40 cultivators, the weakest was a Divine Sea stage level 5 cultivator. Some were even Heavenly Circuit stage level 2, and level 3 experts……..
As for the haughty looking old man, he was shockingly a level 5 Heavenly Circuit existence!
“Considered you guys tactful.” Slightly lifting his head, the old man broke into a cold sneer after feeling the panicked escape of the 3 Heavenly Circuit cultivators. He then gazed towards the left entrance of the mountain valley.
Another flash of green emerged, and was followed up by a Heavenly Circuit stage level 1 lass in a green garment. She spoke with utmost reverence. “Elder Bai, Heaven’s First Sect and the Star-Convening Sect’s disciples have entered Sky Valley. No movements made by East Victory yet.”
“Hmph! Since Heaven’s First Sect and Star-Convening Sect have entered, you guys can move out!” The old man jeered sinisterly at the 40 cultivators awaiting him. “Various disciples, I’ll reiterate once more. Although our Moonlight Sect doesn’t wish to turn other evenly matched sects into foes, our Moonlight Sect isn’t afraid of them. If they don’t harbour kind intentions, then you are free to act….except, do a clean job at it. If word gets out, and evidence is clear, then one would face the music himself……as for other common sects who dare to obstruct you, massacre them. Anyone capable of acquiring spirit medicines, will be awarded with a spirit pellet, and can enter the Treasury Hall to pick a High-ranking Profound skill technique of your choice. If you can gather a spirit medicine listed on our objectives, the reward is a Low-rank Earth skill technique! And 10,000 low grade spiritual stones!”
“Disciple understands!” As the old man’s words faded, the 40 cultivators roared with blood boiling. Then in groups of 2-3 they surged through the forest at the back.
With an unchanging expression, the Moonlight Sect elder observed as his disciples vanished into the forest before he stood up; seemingly prepared to enter Sky Valley at anytime.
Yet at this moment, his attention swerved towards the eastern horizon. An unbridled cluster of soaring rays propelled towards the eastern side of Sky Valley.
From the flashes of rays, they were all adorned in engravings of thundercloud and lightning, along with golden war chariots.
“Bright-Heaven City’s Thunder-Heaven Sect?” the 6 words rolled out from the old man’s mouth. The old man who didn’t even put Heaven’s First Sect in his eyes, currently had his pupils shrank back.
“Even from so far away? It seems like Thunder-Heaven Sect is in need of a certain spirit medicine.”
Inside a mountain valley at the western side, 30 cultivators dressed in beast skin and armour immediately noticed the incoming swell of rays.
Although there wasn’t any Forbidden zone spell restriction surrounding Sky Valley, cultivators still wouldn’t extravagantly fly in like that. That was because such extravagance would be easy targets of massive demonic beasts horde.
Around Sky Valley, there were still demonic beasts above level 6 that Thought Division stage cultivators would find hard to deal with.
“No matter how high the Thunder-Heaven Sect cultivation is; they can be fearless of other demonic beasts or cultivators, but the Sky Valley still contains the presence of decaying aurora. Without a Divine Peach jade on hand, they definitely wouldn’t dare to fly in like that.” A middle-aged cultivator with a scar on his face, standing ahead of the pack, sullenly spoke out. “Wait for them to disperse first, then we will separate and kill some of their guys, and seize their Divine Peach jade!”
“Yes!” The cultivators clothed in beast hide and skin all sneered cruelly, simultaneously producing two Slaving Beasts pouch.
As for these cultivators, they seem to be from a large sect, one that specializes in controlling beasts.
