Fury Towards The Burning Heaven Chapter 885Jiang Yi stopped his seclusion after he had cultivated for two months. He didn't have a lot of celestial stones left, as there was only slightly more than three billion. If he was to cultivate for another one month, he reckoned that he wouldn't even have enough to ride the Heaven Fate Ship to the Buddha Thearch City.
When he returned to the cabin, Xiao Yu was utterly delighted as she would pester Jiang Yi to play with her all day. Tantai Shi was also happy from the bottom of her heart as she would feel indescribable ease when Jiang Yi was around.
After Jiang Yi played with Xiao Yu for two days, he entered his room and went into seclusion again. He was already used to the cultivation speed of 1000 times faster, and right now he was little displeased to have such a slow cultivation speed. However, it was still better than nothing, and his main objective wasn't to cultivate but to comprehend the sorcery arts. At the same time, he wanted to think of ways to comprehend that wind attribute elder's dao pattern which could guide the astral winds away.
Time flew by quickly as another month slipped by. Jiang Yi was awakened by Song Zhong as they were about to arrive at Heaven Dragon City in two hours. Everyone had to disembark the Heaven Fate Ship and switch to another Heaven Fate Ship towards the Heaven Flame City.
After sitting inside the cabin's main hall for two hours, Jiang Yi noticed the Heaven Fate Ship had stopped and that the barrier was opened up. There was a giant city in the back. He stood up and said, "We have arrived at Heaven Dragon City. Let's enter the city first."
Everyone was already prepared. Two maidservants carried one child each, and everyone flew off the Heaven Fate Ship. Song Zhong took out a war chariot and invited Tantai Shi, Jiang Yi, and the two maidservants inside.
Stomp! Stomp! Stomp!
Song Zhong sat at the shaft and controlled the war chariot to move forward. After handing over the city's entry fees, they headed straight for the city plaza to find an inn to check in. Afterward, they would go and search for the Tang Clan's branch shop and ride a connecting Heaven Fate Ship to Heaven Flame City.
This Heaven Dragon City should be considered a medium-scale city as it was much bigger than the Wolf Fang City. The East Imperial Continent's cities were divided into main cities, large cities, medium cities, and small cities. Of course, there were towns and villages further down the line.
Every region only had ten main cities, and in normal situations, they were all controlled by the Region Lord's clan. If the clan was large enough, they would also control the large cities while the medium and small cities would be disseminated to their vassal clans.
Just as Song Zhong mentioned, many Region Lords basically disregarded the medium and small cities, causing endless chaos of war. Hence, the changing of city lordswhich happened up to five times in two weekscould happen so easily.
The Heaven State Region's ruler was the Luo Clan, and they had been established in the continent for hundreds of thousands of years. According to Song Zhong, the Luo Clan had once controlled two regions back then, but after they were attacked by an alliance of a few clans, they migrated their clan and hid in the Heaven State Region for tens of thousands of years before rising back to power again. Twenty thousand years ago, they had extinguished the original Region Lord's clan and dominated the Heaven State Region.
Tantai Shi's husband's clan was a guard commander of the Luo Clan back then, and they were bestowed with the Heaven Flame City due to their contribution. After generations of service and their loyalty to the Luo Clan, it allowed the Tantai Clan to possess the absolute authority in Heaven Flame City. Many major and minor clans in the city were all adhering to the Tantai Clan while no bandits dared to attack the Heaven Flame City as the Tantai Clan's backer was the Luo Clan.
Jiang Yi had some knowledge about the East Imperial Continent. There were countless great clans in this place, and such clans weren't powerful just because of their own clan's strength, but because they had countless vassal clans. They were like massive trees which had countless roots and occupied the entire land. If one wanted to chop down this massive tree, they had to sever all the roots. Otherwise, one must be prepared to be surrounded by innumerable experts.
When thinking until this point, Jiang Yi's face was filled with severity. When he had first departed from Stellarsky Continent, he assumed he could use his diligence to become an expert. When that happened, he would be able to extinguish the North Thearch's Wu Clan, just like when he destroyed the branch hall of the Martial Arts Hall back at Stellarsky Continent.
Right now, when he looked back, he was truly naive. After having more understanding, he had more restraining fear towards the Nine Thearchs Clans. These were nine massive figures which had been towering on this continent for over 700,000 years. Just how many vassal clans do they have under their rule? How many experts could they mobilize? What was the true strength of their foundation?
Experts weren't invincible!
Just like the current Jiang Yi, he might seem to be unrivaled within the Heaven Monarch Realm as his Divine Sound Heaven Skill and Fury of Thunder could instantly kill groups of peak-stage Heaven Monarchs. Putting aside those peak-stage Heaven Monarchs who had immunity to the Divine Sound Heaven Skill, those who comprehended powerful abilities, and those experts whose combat strength had reached the Four-Star or Five-Star. Even if he could truly kill all the peak-stage Heaven Monarchs regardless of their strength, how many could he kill?
A martial artist's essence force, stamina, and mental energy were all limited.
If North Thearch's clan mobilized ten thousand, a hundred thousand, or a million Heaven Monarchs to surround him, would he truly be able to kill all of them? A regular minor clan could already mobilize up to ten thousand Heaven Monarchs. How many major and minor vassal clans did the Nine Thearchs Clans possess?
Putting everything aside, if the North Thearch Wu Shang was to give the orders, he could mobilize 100 million Heaven Monarchs to surround and attack Jiang Yi, which would tire him to death.
Mystic Divine Palace, I have to obtain the Mystic Divine Palace!
Jiang Yi thought about all the possibilities and discovered that apart from obtaining the Mystic Divine Palace, the Mystic Thearch's inheritance, and the divine artifacts like the Mystic Divine Saber and Mystic Divine Armor, he had no other ways to destroy the Wu Clan. It would be useless even if he could reach the Demigod Realm. Ao Lu had stated that North Thearch Wu Shang was a Nine-Star expert!
Lei Banxian was incredible, wasn't he?
Reverse Time Flow was such a heaven-defying ability, but Ao Lu said he was just an Eight-Star expert, meaning Wu Shang was much superior to Lei Banxian. Even if Jiang Yi was able to cultivate to the Demigod Realm in his lifetime, but was he certain he could become stronger than Lei Banxian? Could he get stronger than Wu Shang?
He was the strongest generational prodigy of mankind, and he had left behind the Mystic Divine Palace, the Mystic Divine Saber, the Mystic Divine Armor, and many valuable cardinal treasures and abilities. He left behind all those things because he wanted the human elites to take over his inheritance and protect mankind. Therefore, Jiang Yi had to obtain the Mystic Divine Palace. He might not be able to become the second Mystic Thearch, but his strength would certainly increase drasticallyand to a terrifying level at that.
"Lord Xue, we have reached the inn."
While he was in contemplation, Song Zhong sent a message in. Jiang Yi withdrew his thoughts and walked out with Tantai Shi and others. He noticed they were in the inner courtyard of an inn. He beckoned his hand and asked Song Zhong to go find out the information about the Heaven Fate Ship heading towards Heaven Flame City while he silently entered the room to rest.
In fact, the Heaven Flame City wasn't on the way to the Buddha Thearch City as he would have to take a detouring route which was a few days. Since he had promised Xiao Yu, he was going to escort them to the Heaven Flame City. A man must keep his word, and Jiang Yi seldom gave any promises; but once he did, he would do everything he can to complete it. Like rescuing Su Ruoxue and taking revenge for Jiang Bieli!
After waiting for six hours, the sky gradually turned dark; but Song Zhong had yet to return. Instead, a pearl on Jiang Yi's body had lit up.
Jiang Yi got a shock. This pearl was given by Shadow Emperor, and he had followed Shadow Emperor's instruction to not store the pearl inside the ancient divine essence ring and put it in his pocket. He never took notice of it and didn't expect it to suddenly light up right now.
"There is news!"
He stood up excitedly and walked out of the inn swiftly. Soon enough, he locked his eyes on an individual outside the inn. It was a middle-aged martial artist who looked extremely ordinary and was at the Heaven Monarch Realm. His strength wasn't weak nor was it strong, and there was nothing special about his appearance either. He looked at this individual in the eyes, and both their eyes lit up. Jiang Yi had used this pearl to somehow sense that this was Shadow Emperor's subordinate.
The middle-aged martial artist cupped his hands and said, "My Lord, my name is Niu San, I had once met with my Lord at Wind Rain Restaurant, and my Lord had lent 100,000 celestial stones to this servant."
"It is you. Come in first before we talk!" Jiang Yi nodded lightly. This was the secret signal that Shadow Emperor told him, and it matched exactly. This was the subordinate of the Shadow Emperor, and he was human and not of the demon race.
After bringing this man into the room, Jiang Yi activated the courtyard's restriction and even entered the Union of Heaven and Man state to sense everything. He nodded after making sure no divine senses were scouting in. That person took out a spatial ring and handed it over while whispering, "My Lord, the superior asked me to hand this information to you."
Jiang Yi took over the spatial ring and poured his essence force in. A set of information appeared, and after he took a glance, his eyes instantly turned cold.
