Chapter 140: Fiery Endeavour, commences!
“Could it be those old freaks couldn’t resist any longer, and are finally staking it all in?”
This rigid period of hiding behind the Earthfire Magma pool, was possibly the most unendurable time of Wei Suo’s entire life.
This Scarlet Flame Devil had been consistently immobile, sprawling flat over this large rock over the Earthflame Magma pool. If not for it being an awe-inspiring level 6 demonic beast big brother, it would really resemble a lazy ass, rotting dog.
However now, this Scarletwing Flame Devil had suddenly straightened itself.
Right now, Wei Suo finally understood how this level 6 demonic beast big brother earned such a daunting name of being a Scarlet Flame Devil.
When this Scarletwing Flame Devil straightened itself, it did so like a human. Moreover, when it stood up, its body flames flared extravagantly. Apart from two shining flame wings behind, its entire body was bounded with an inferno; appearing like a devil that had just come from hell……
After mightily straightening itself, this Scarletwing Flame Devil didn’t leave the black rock it was housing upon. It merely widened its mouth, and repeatedly sprayed out luxuriant red clouds.
After a brief while, the entire perimeter within this cavern was polluted with dense red clouds.
Observing the conduct of this Scarletwing Flame Devil, Wei Suo knew that this level 6 mid-tier big brother, analogous of a Thought Division Stage level 2-3 cultivator, indeed possessed an intellect not inferior to cultivators. It was definitely much smarter than those 2 moronic idiots that Wei Suo himself were acquaintances with.
The searing heat of those red clouds were terrifying. Even with his Fireflow magic pearl, Wei Suo could still feel pulses of heat, as though he was inside a public bath…….
The mountainous rocks within this cavern had seemingly scorched with red, melting sightly into liquefied rocky substance.
The red clouds that enveloped the entire cavern, was practically akin to what several cultivators would use to fight against opponents; casting out powerful fire element divine-light light-screens first.
After some time, Wei Suo finally heard faint breaking sounds. Still, the ‘Heart-shattering curse’ that Old freak Mo had left in his body had faded. Thus, Wei Suo retained his stagnant self as he observed silently.
Chi! The Scarletwing Flame Devil followed up with another move, one that caused Wei Suo and the green-gowned Old Man to praise his witty intelligence.
After polluting the cave with its red clouds, this Scarletwing Flame Devil actually leapt into the magma pool; behind the region of that Earthflame Immortal Lotus. Like hot congee, the magma rose up to around its calf, and rippled around it…..with its current action, those cultivators entering wouldn’t dare to unleash large scale powerful skills, to prevent from harming the Earthflame Immortal Lotus.
After leaping into the Earthflame Magma pool, the Scarletwing Flame Devil had no notions of pausing. With its mouth swelling, it sprayed out a surge of astonishing strong gales; actually blowing up the magma into a wave as it sped towards the entrance of this cave.
Right at the instance the magma wave reached the entrance, a flash of white ray pierced in from outside and collided with the magma.
The white divine-light clashed with immense ferocity, halting the magma wave in its tracks. Countless brilliance then flashed out, forming into a white screen as it forced the wave of magma back in.
Wei Suo was initially expecting at most those 4 old freaks. Instead, an additional pair of elders from the Star Convening Sect and Heaven’s First Sect, along with a Thunder Spirit Root Heaven’s First Sect disciple had joined…….
Observing the 7 individuals, behind that primary white divine-light light-screen, hovered another 3-sided artifact shield.
“Crackle!” Witnessing this giant magma wave not dealing any threat to those 7 cultivators, the Scarletwing Flame Devil didn’t pause at all; widening its mouth towards the middle He Cuode, as it released a blazing winnowing fireball.
A cyan beam pressed out from Dayu Kuangsheng’s hand and slammed towards that fireball. Boom! From within that fireball, a vast tide of black flames burst out. Engulfed by black flames, that cyan beam was directly roasted into a strip of metallic juice and splashed down from midair……
“Not good! Dan-pellet flame! This demonic beast is too crafty, it actually hid its demonic dan-pellet within an ordinary fire skill!”
“Chi! Chi! Chi!”
As Dayu Kuangsheng yelled out, the 3-sided artifact shield ahead was similarly incinerated by those black flames.
“Wakao!” Hiding in a despicable corner, Wei Suo’s eyes almost swelled as he witnessed the scene.
That 3-sided artifact shield was clearly above a half-spirit class artifact shield. Moreover, it was laced with rich frosty aura, and was obviously an ice element artifact shield that could suppress fire elemental skill arts. Instead, it was completely incinerated by the dan-pellet flames of the Scarletwing Flame Devil.
Wearing this white robes patterned with golden swords, the elegant He Cuode’s expression changed as he slapped his waist; summoning out a blue light-screen. Simultaneously, he casted a skill art with his other hand, which transformed into a gigantic white ice flower; welcoming the insane rush of the black dan-pellet flames head on…….
“Shhhhshshh!” A sizzling explosion erupted. In a flash, that black dan-pellet flames that could incinerate a 3-sided half-spirit class artifact shield, was actually resisted by his blue light-screen, and the gigantic white ice flower; which resembled a lotus flower throne.
Yet after resisting for a brief while, that blue light-screen shivered with ripples and instantly ruptured through. Furthermore, that white ice flower was constantly dissolving and shrinking.
“I reckon this Scarletwing Flame Devil cannot hold on. That man is actually a Thought Division Stage expert. To obstruct this dan-pellet flame, his Ice elemental skill arts are at least of Upper Earth rank. If not, an ordinary Thought Division Stage cultivator would possibly be finished,” the gloomy voice of the green-gowned Old Man sounded in Wei Suo’s ears.
While he spoke, both parties had clashed clamorously, colliding with joyous intensity…..
The entire state of battle seemingly fell into a deadlock.
Old freak Mo had conjured a cycle of rich darkness energy that shot towards that black dan-pellet flames, barely halting the advances of that black dan-pellet flames alongside another blue light-screen that He Cuode had activated again.
Old freak Feng released an essence cyan wind dragon, that rushed and repeatedly collided with the black demonic dan-pellet that hovered in mid air; wasting away the demonic dan-pellet’s energy.
The tiny golden hammer of Granny Jin floated above her head, with currents of lightning continuously jolting out and congregating into a metre long giant mallet; before hammering away at the Scarletwing Flame Devil that was situated within the Earthflame Magma pool.
As for the Scarletwing Flame Devil, innumerable amounts of shield-like fire clouds floated before its body, tightly hindering the hammering of Granny Jin’s giant gold mallet. Tie Lingzi shot out a crow beam, while the Heaven’s First Sect’s elite disciple shot out a thunder ball. Even though such terrifying destruction had ravaged out cracks of wounds on its body, it was simply healed in a flash……
Following that, a scene that caused Wei Suo and the green-gowned Old Man to daze out occurred.
Probably realizing that it would be beaten to death sooner or later, that Scarletwing Flame Devil gradually submerged its body deeper into the magma; finally leaving only its head poking out from the magma surface, as it hid behind the Earthflame Immortal Lotus.
This caused the pack of cultivators to fall into a dilemma. Originally fearing having their artifacts incinerated by the powerful dan-pellet flames, and could only employ skill techniques to assault; they now feared utilizing their skill techniques as well.
Such a ruffian like, shameless act of avoidance by only revealing its head, caused Wei Suo to be at a loss; clueless whether to laugh or cry……
Shortly, it even retrieved its demonic dan-pellet.
A comical scenario was playing out right now. A black demonic dan-pellet was hovering above the Earthflame Immortal Lotus, while a sneaky ‘dog head’ was probing out of the magma pool’s surface.
This hooligan like Scarletwing Flame Devil, was evidently attempting to grind away slowly at those cultivators, until they perish.
Besides, the five-coloured venom miasma would resurface after 2 days. Those cultivators would have no choice but to leave this valley, while it could continue presiding over this magma pool.
Nevertheless, the group of old freaks had been plotting since a decade ago. Moreover, they were joined with such high level cultivators like He Cuode, and their strength had been enhanced greatly. How would they allow themselves to concede and be helpless towards a hooligan.
Tie Lingzi then reached his hand out, and firstly activated a rank 5 Ice-rain talisman…..
Instantly, torrents of powerful ice hails were summoned, as it thoroughly suppressed the red clouds that pervaded the entire cave.
Without warning, Granny Jin also produced a white Ruyi Scepter, with coiling white icy aura incessantly steaming out from the scepter. Blending with the rank 5 Ice-rain talisman, the red clouds plaguing the cave had been utterly suppressed towards the radius of the Earthflame Magma pool.
Old freak Mo then brandished both hands, as 32 white banners directly floated out above his hand; with green fluorescent skulls continuously streaming through the white banners. The countless green malevolent skulls that knitted together into a green light-screen.
Old freak Feng reached out his hands from his fluttering sleeves, where a fire crystal edge artifact lodged within his hand. Then, he immediately infused his true energy in.
Originally intending to summon out an artifact, but after witnessing that item in Old freak Feng’s hand, He Cuode and Dayu Kuangsheng’s gaze flickered; and opted to conjure up that previous gigantic ice flower, while Dayu Kuangsheng activated a yellow light-screen. Two layers of defense had been added to the crowd.
With Old freak Feng issuing his true energy endlessly, the item within his hand transformed into a red beam, reaching above that ‘dog’ head that was probing out of the magma pool in a flash.
Meanwhile, the black demonic dan-pellet unleashed its black dan-pellet flames, and engulfed that blood beam.
However, that blood beam was actually able to penetrate through the black dan-pellet fames that were stronger than even Earthflame. As though it inflicted no damage, it struck against the head of the Scarletwing Flame Devil.
On the head of the Scarletwing Flame Devil, a cavity had been punctured through within a split second, as its entire body tumbled violently within the magma pool; causing the fully bloomed Earthflame Immortal Lotus to bounce within the undulating magma, as though it was about to be consumed by the waves.
Extinguished fresh blood trickled out from the wound on the Scarletwing Flame Devil’s head. Its internal blood was actually golden in color, and glittered splendidly; appearing as if it was melted gold.
“Walao! That’s a Firespirit rubyl!
Presently spectating while hidden, Wei Suo couldn’t help yelling in his heart. He could recognize the artifact weapon Old freak Feng possessed was forged with a crystal called Firespirit ruby.
The Firespirit ruby had an amplified hardness as compared to most crystals. More critically, such a crystal was naturally formed within underground fire veins. It was unafraid of fire energy, and was immensely difficult to melt.
However, unforeseen by everyone, when that black demonic dan-pellet had volleyed out and clashed against the green light-screen formed by Old freak Mo’s countless green skulls, it blatantly detonated.
