Immortal And Martial Dual Cultivation Chapter 1520Chapter 1520 (Raw 1501): Gathering at Heavenly Star Island
The seven Divine Weapons containing Great Dao Energy all struck the chests of the Immortal statues.
Cracks spread out on the chests of the Immortal statues as all of them were knocked back one hundred meters.
The sheer size of the Immortal statues made the seven Divine Weapons look like toothpicks. However, incredibly, these insignificant-looking Divine Weapons knocked these seven Immortal statues into the air and broke large stone shards off them.
When Xiao Chen saw the Immortal statues’ conditions, he entered deep thought and intensified his Great Dao Energy.
While Xiao Chen had struck the other side’s weakness, the blow was not as effective as the Heartbreaking Stance, achieving barely half the damage.
Clearly, the other side also knew that the chest was the Immortal statues’ weakness and had significantly strengthened their defense there.
Only Martial Techniques that broke the heart from the inside, like the Heartbreaking Stance, would be very effective. An external attack would be much more difficult.
However, only Xiao Chen thought this. If others saw that his attacks knocked back seven Immortal statues at the same time and caused significant damage, they would be so shocked that their jaws would drop.
Xiao Chen leaped into the air over the splashes, and the seven Divine Weapons returned quickly.
He swept his gaze across the distance, looking at the Treasure Master’s Residence’s war chariots and wondering whether to charge over or not.
After some thought, he gave up on the idea. If he charged over, this group of war chariots would immediately scatter.
It would not be easy to figure out which war chariot the controller of the statues was in.
Instead, he might end up in a prolonged battle with the seven Immortal statues, which would not be good. He still needed to rescue the Cyclic Astral Palace and the Myriad Fiend Island—the other two surviving Immortal Holy Lands.
Xiao Chen’s figure flashed, leaving without delay, heading towards the closer Cyclic Astral Palace.
The Treasure Master’s cultivators watched as Xiao Chen left but did not dare to give chase.
At the Cyclic Astral Palace, a report soon reached the Holy Son Chu Yang’s hand.
“Master, good news! Good news!”
Chu Yang joyfully barged into an important place of the Cyclic Astral Palace while shouting in excitement.
This place was where the Yin and Yang flame pools were at the bottom of the sea, which Xiao Chen once went to when he visited. Aside from the Cyclic Astral Lord, the Cyclic Astral Palace’s Elders were all gathered here as well.
The Cyclic Astral Lord and the many Elders were all infusing their Primordial Energy into the two large flame pools.
The power of the Cyclic Astral Palace’s protective formation came from these Yin and Yang flame pools.
Currently, there were four Immortal statues outside bombarding the Cyclic Astral Palace’s protective barrier with various Major Magic Skills.
The Cyclic Astral Palace upper echelon never stopped infusing Primordial Energy into the flame pools. This guaranteed that the protective formation could keep operating.
However, based on the situation, the Immortal statues’ abundant Magic Energy far surpassed these people’s Primordial Energy. It would be impossible for the Cyclic Astral Palace to win the battle of attrition. Sooner or later, the formation would break.
The destruction of the Cyclic Astral Palace was inevitable.
The Cyclic Astral Palace’s upper echelon could still use their own strength to escape. However, the weaker Elders and disciples would not be able to avoid death, becoming the Treasure Master’s sacrifices for the Demonic God Blood Sacrifice.
When Chu Yang suddenly barged in, kicking up a fuss, the group of Elders immediately showed unhappy expressions.
“Chu Yang, wasn’t it already said that this is a very important place and that no one should come in?”
“Did you not see the crisis we are in? There is no space for us to be distracted!”
The Cyclic Astral Lord, who was hovering in the air in a cross-legged seated posture, opened his somewhat fatigued eyes and said softly, “Elders, please stay calm. Don’t be impatient. Chu Yang, please speak properly. What exactly happened for you to be so excited?”
Chu Yang calmed himself and nodded. “Master, I just obtained news that the Azure Dragon King Xiao Chen alone delayed eight Immortal statues and helped the Lunar Palace successfully break out of their encirclement.
“Now, Bright Moon City has already taken to the air and is heading for Heavenly Star Island. I heard that Xiao Chen moved the Azure Dragon Palace there and that that place is currently the safest in the entire Heavenly Starry Ocean.”
“How can that be?!”
The group of Elders was incredibly shocked. When they heard that news, they nearly stopped what they were doing.
“That is absolutely impossible. One Immortal statue is already as strong as a Prime. Furthermore, these Immortal statues are very nimble despite their tremendous size, not in the least stiff. Also, they have grasped Immortal Arts and Magic Skills.”
“Right, it must just be rumors. At this time, we should not be simply spreading and believing in such rumors.”
“No matter how powerful the Azure Dragon King is, he cannot possibly delay eight Immortal statues alone.”
The many Elders had seen the Immortal statues’ strength for themselves, so they were all skeptical, unwilling to believe this piece of news.
A light flashed in only the Cyclic Astral Lord’s eyes, but it disappeared after a moment. Just as he was about to say something, his expression suddenly changed slightly as he looked towards the entrance of this forbidden area.
“Of course, we should not put credence in rumors. However, if it is not a rumor, then we must believe in it.”
The white-clad Xiao Chen suddenly barged into the entrance of the forbidden area and looked straight at the Cyclic Astral Lord.
The white-clad person that barged in was naturally Xiao Chen.
Speaking of which, it was rather strange. Xiao Chen just arrived in the sea region near the Cyclic Astral Palace, and the Treasure Master’s people immediately retreated without a fight when the four Immortal statues discovered him.
It was like they were afraid of fighting with Xiao Chen and suffering damage to the Immortal statues.
Before the people of the Cyclic Astral Palace could react to what was going on, Xiao Chen had already resolved the danger without even making a move. He just showed himself and scared off the Treasure Master’s people.
In hindsight, the Treasure Master’s people had probably received news of eight Immortal statues not being able to do anything to Xiao Chen. Four Immortal statues would fare worse, so they might as well leave to avoid fighting him. If they lost one of the Immortal statues, it would be a great heartache.
After hearing Xiao Chen’s explanation, the group of Cyclic Astral Palace Elders found it unbelievable. However, the news that they received after that stunned everyone.
“Cyclic Astral Lord, the four Immortal statues were really scared away. The various Palace Masters cannot understand what’s going on. Please give us instructions on the next step.” The Elders looked to the Cyclic Astral Lord, awaiting his decision.
The Cyclic Astral Lord said, “Lift the current highest state of alert and let the thirty-six Astral Palaces rest in turn.”
After a short pause, the Cyclic Astral Lord looked at Xiao Chen and said, “Interesting, you already surpassed Prime, right?”
Xiao Chen nodded and said, “It can be considered as so.”
The Cyclic Astral Lord revealed a slightly excited smile. “It looks like I really have good judgment. The decision back then was absolutely correct.”
Xiao Chen did not have a good impression of the Cyclic Astral Lord and was not willing to discuss this further. “The danger is not completely over yet. If the Cyclic Astral Lord trusts me, you can have your sect’s cultivators retreat to Heavenly Star Island. That place is absolutely safe for now.”
After saying that, Xiao Chen’s figure flashed, disappearing from where he was. He was already gone, leaving behind a group of wide-eyed and confused Cyclic Astral Palace Elders.
Chu Yang was completely distracted, feeling all sorts of complicated emotions. No words could describe the bitterness that he felt right now.
The one in the best mood was naturally the Cyclic Astral Lord. Now that Xiao Chen had surpassed Prime, the chances of him leaving this abandoned land were significantly greater. With the arrangement made with the Oath Stone, Xiao Chen had to bring him out within one hundred years.
“Send down orders: all sect disciples are to rush to Heavenly Star Island at full speed half a day hence.”
“Cyclic Astral Lord, you really believe him?” A few Elders were still feeling suspicious.
The Cyclic Astral Lord glared at the person who spoke and said, “Don’t overthink. This age is already his personal stage, just like how it was for the Azure Emperor ten thousand years ago. If we do not believe him, there is no second path.”
When Xiao Chen reached the Myriad Fiend Island, the same thing happened. Before he arrived, four Immortal statues under the Treasure Master’s Residence’s control left quickly without breaking the Myriad Fiend Island’s barrier, unwilling to clash with him at all.
Two days later, the story of how the Azure Dragon King Xiao Chen alone saved three Immortal Holy Lands spread throughout the Heavenly Starry Ocean.
The cultivators fleeing in all directions from the many sects destroyed went to Heavenly Star Island to take refuge.
As for the Treasure Master, for some reason, since then, the Immortal statues stopped taking action, giving the many disciples that escaped death a rare chance to catch a breather.
Various remnant factions headed for Heavenly Star Island one after another, turning it into the center of the oceanic world.
