Chapter 0177: Momentary Opportunity In A War
“Not good, there is a low level Forbidden Space Restriction placed all around. Immediately put away the flight type artefacts and rush out in all directions, we have to first break the Restriction and only then can we resort to the flight type artefacts……” The red faced Profound Core Cultivator could sense a low level Forbidden Space Restriction placed all around the city. He immediately gave out the orders, while his speed not only did not slow down, but rather it increased.
He had to first destroy the Hua Continent’s cultivator army’s roaring Spirit Stone Cannon, this time he certainly understood where he had to go, before when he was using his Spiritual Consciousness to scan the area, he was able to find a place where his Spiritual Consciousness could not seep into, but because of his suspicions, he seemed to have missed the best time.
Since he now understood that he had missed the best timing to begin, the red faced Profound Core Cultivator immediately madly dashed towards the Spirit Stone Cannon.
Although Ning Cheng had laid out the Array Formation, but this layout was not an advanced level one, but still he was confident that his Hidden Serial Killing Array was absolutely enough for him to gain a bit of time. If that red faced cultivator had set himself up to it, then he could have easily found Ning Cheng’s Hidden Serial Killing Array. But if he only wanted to only destroy the Spirit Stone Cannon, then why would he think that Ning Cheng had also laid out a Hidden Serial Killing Array?
Ning Cheng looked at the red faced Profound Core Cultivator and his people who were directly going to attack inside his Hidden Serial Killing Array and he gave out a dark sigh in his mind. For two armies to clash against each other, they should not be hesitant, the only reason that they had such an excellent opportunity was because the Yi Xing Ocean’s cultivators were simply uninterested in them, moreover they also wanted to leave this place, as such it was because they hesitated for a moment, that they immediately became completely disordered as they entered the array.
“Dean Man, you start with the Profound Core Cultivator of the 5th Level in the brown robe, we have to kill him first.” Ning Cheng immediately transmitted his message to Man Rang through a sound transmission, once he saw the red faced cultivator entering his killing array.
Not waiting for another sound transmission from Ning Cheng, the three Profound Core Cultivators immediately took their positions.
“Xi Dou, something’s not right, it is as if they were waiting for us to come here……” A Profound Core Cultivator with a small stature felt that something was strange, but before he could even start, Ning Cheng immediately threw out the Array Flags to activate the killing array from his hands.
At the same time, when Ning Cheng threw out those Array Flags. Immediately around all surroundings of the people trapped inside, endless amounts of Axe Lights swept out. To them all of a sudden it felt as if those Axe Lights had materialised out of thin air, moreover not only they were numerous, they were also densely packed.
Ning Cheng had the most thorough understanding of the Axe Intent, moreover during these past few days, his Angry Axe Type Killing Intent had already advanced to the peak of the Realm of Major Accomplishment. As such, because of his powerful ability to comprehend, he could successfully integrate the Axe Intent into his killing array.
“This killing array is not something to worry about, attack with all your strength, it is just a low level killing array. Everybody look at each other’s positions before beginning……” The red faced Profound Core Cultivator found that Ning Cheng had set up a low level killing array for a person such as him, he immediately became even more furious, as he thought about the so called ‘insidiousness’ of the Hua Continent’s cultivator army. Moreover, he was mainly angry at himself because he had initially feared the Hua Continent’s cultivator army, as such he had wasted the best time to act against them.
Although these dense and innumerable Axe Lights made from killing intent were powerful, but the few injuries received by the several Profound Core Cultivators were not very big, at best, these low grade Axe Lights would only make them waste some time.
“Begin.” Almost at the same time the red faced Profound Core Cultivator spoke, Ning Cheng also shouted out to Man Rang, who was hidden in a corner of the killing array.
Man Rang had already locked onto the brown robed Profound Core 5th Level Cultivator, and started at almost the same time. In his heart he was really admiring Ning Cheng. Not only was the killing array’s arrangement was as expected by Ning Cheng, moreover Ning Cheng with only the cultivation of Essence Building Realm could easily see the cultivation of the Profound Core Cultivator with pinpoint accuracy.
Man Rang immediately bombed out with dozens of wheel lights as he attacked the brown robed Profound Core Cultivator, while at the same time, the red faced Profound Core Cultivator also threw out his magic weapon.
Simultaneously, Jing Ji and Qi Xiuya, under the directions indicated on the Array Flag, also threw out several Array Flags before taking out their magic weapons.
“Bang Bang Bang Bang……”
Sounds of explosions incessantly rang out nonstop inside Ning Cheng’s Hidden Serial Killing Array. The Yi Xing Ocean’s Profound Core Cultivators immediately detonated their magic weapons at what they thought to be the heart of the killing array, but Jing Ji and Qi Xiuya immediately blocked out the attacks with their own magic weapons. They not only obstructed the attacks of the Yi Xing Ocean’s cultivators, they also used the Array Flag to change the position of the heart of the killing array.
As for the brown robed Profound Core Cultivator, he was directly submerged by Man Rang’s sneak attack, as he was bombed by dozens of those wheel lights. But the Yi Xing Ocean’s brown robed Profound Core Cultivator immediately took out a shield to block at the first instance. This killing array was completely under Ning Cheng’s control. As such it did not even impact Man Rang for even half a moment, because of which he could devote hundred percent of his power towards the Yi Xing Ocean’s cultivator in front of him.
This Yi Xing Ocean’s Profound Core Cultivator not only had to block Man Rang’s full powered attack from one side, he also had to avoid Ning Cheng’s Axe Lights that were continuously condensing and obstructing him inside the Hidden Serial Killing Array.
At this time, Ning Cheng finally started moving, he immediately shot out his Angry Axe’s Second Form, [Tornado]. The Golden Axe Shadow, under the influence of the Axe Lights condensed from the killing intent in the Hidden Serial Killing Array, grew even more powerful, moreover because of the presence of Ning Cheng, the Axe Shadows were immediately drawn towards him, simultaneously creating a tornado filled with Angry Axe Type Killing Intent, which he immediately shot towards the back of the brown robed Profound Core Cultivator.
“Peng” The brown robed Profound Core Cultivator was paying most of his attention towards Man Rang, as such he simply did not think that there would be a trifling Essence Building Cultivator behind him. Ning Cheng’s Tornado Type Axe Shadow, directly blew open his flesh, killing him immediately as he fell into the middle of the killing array.
From the time that the brown robed Profound Core Cultivator entered the Hidden Serial Killing Array, to the time Ning Cheng finally acted, not even seven breaths of time had fully passed, before Ning Cheng and Man Rang had successfully executed the sneak attack, and killed a Profound Core 5th Level Cultivator. When it came to Ning Cheng, it could definitely be said that the result of one plus one was definitely greater than two.
The red faced Profound Core Cultivator, when he heard the sound of the explosion, immediately knew in his heart that he was fooled, this was definitely not a simple Level 3 Array Formation, but rather a Cyclic Level 3 Array Formation. He immediately let out a howl towards his comrades, “Without a heart to manage the Array, this kind of lower levelled Array Formation, if we can strike any place with all our strength, we can directly destroy…….”
He had just finished his words, when the brown robed Profound Core Cultivator was killed off by Ning Cheng and Man Rang.
This red faced Profound Core Cultivator felt his soul tremble, as he immediately took out his magic weapon to attack Ning Cheng. If a Late Stage Profound Core Profound Core Cultivator wanted to attack Ning Cheng, then even if Ning Cheng was inside the Hidden Serial Killing Array, he did not dare to engage against him. Ning Cheng immediately commanded Jing Ji and Qi Xiuya to contain this red faced Profound Core Cultivator, while at the same time, he had already taken the initiative and sent out an Axe Chop in a different direction.
This time Ning Cheng had sent out a simple Axe Trace, as his choice of opponent was a Profound Core 3rd Level Cultivator from the Yi Xing Ocean. Ning Cheng knew that he would not be able to kill a Profound Core Cultivator by himself, as such this Axe Trace was just to inform Man Rang, letting him deal with it, otherwise he would have been forced to permanently stay here.
Man Rang had not thought that what Ning Cheng had spoken about earlier would have come true, he had easily killed a Profound Core 5th Level Cultivator, it was something that he himself could not believe. This was too simple, too easy, which made him feel that it was simply impossible.
Moreover, the fact was, Ning Cheng had already commanded Jing Ji and Qi Xiuya to contain the red faced Profound Core Cultivator, while at the same time had already set his sights on another Profound Core Cultivator. About Ning Cheng’s actions, Man Rang was very clear, it was an indication for him to handle it. The more Profound Core Cultivators they were able to kill in the shortest possible time, the more favourable it would turn out for them.
Man Rang hurriedly calmed down his surprised heart, as the red rainbow in his hands once again transformed into a dozen wheel lights, which immediately coordinated with Ning Cheng’s Axe Trace as they moved towards their target.
The Profound Core 3rd Level Cultivator knew that Man Rang had already locked on to him, but he still dared to deal with Ning Cheng, the Crimson Dragon Prong in his hands immediately brought out a dense amount of Bright Thunder Loops, a small portion of these Bright Thunder Loops immediately locked onto the Golden Axe Trace of Ning Cheng while the rest immediately moved towards Man Rang.
These Bright Thunder Loops immediately collided together with Man Rang’s Scarlet Rainbow Wheel, which immediately led to the ruptures of the Bright Loops one after another, creating formidable True Essence ripples.
As the sounds of True Essence explosions resounded, the cultivator with the cultivation level of Profound Core 3rd Level was directly heavily injured by Man Rang. His cultivation was already inherently weaker than Man Rang’s, coupled with Ning Cheng helping from the side, moreover inside the killing array, the only avenue left for him was to end up falling here.
Ning Cheng, in this moment, immediately shot out his Golden Axe Shadow directly converging it with the Axe Traces from the formation, as he directly blasted at the attack that the Profound Core 3rd Level Cultivator had sent towards him.
“Peng Peng…… Puff….”
Ning Cheng was not able to fully block the Bright Thunder Loops, although most of them were dissipated by the Golden Axe, the remaining Bright Thunder Loops directly bombed onto Ning Cheng’s chest. Ning Cheng was sent flying back, while simultaneously spraying out a mouthful of blood. As for the Profound Core 3rd Level Cultivator from the Yi Xing Ocean, he simply had no means to escape from Ning Cheng’s First Trace, which was actually his Angry Axe’s 1st form, [Angry Axe, the 1st Trace], which immediately cut him apart at his waist.
“Ka Ka……” The Hidden Serial Killing Array that Ning Cheng had set up, was currently under attack by the other three people of the Profound Core Realm, they had already destroyed 70-80% of it in a few moments, and could see that in a few more breaths of time, they would be able to break it completely.
Ning Cheng simply refused to consider his own injury, as he directly spoke to Jing Ji, “Jing Ji and Man Rang immediately move to kill that red faced Profound Core Cultivator, Qi Xiuya, hold off the other two.”
From the time the five Profound Core Cultivators had burst onto the Hidden Serial Killing Array that Ning Cheng had set up, a total of only 10 breaths had passed by, while Ning Cheng had already killed off two Profound Core Cultivators. This time whether it was Man Rang, Jing Ji or Qi Xiuya, they were all sincerely convinced of Ning Cheng’s strength and foresight. So when Ning Cheng issued the order, the two men did not hesitate to implement it.
Man Rang immediately joined up and coordinated with Jing Ji to deal with the red faced Profound Core Cultivator, while in the meantime, a different scene was taking place outside the Hidden Serial Killing Array. The two Profound Core Cultivator who had not entered the Hidden Serial Killing Array, had already breached through the Defensive Array Formation that Ning Cheng had set up. Although Yang Honghuo was able to block them for a while with the Spirit Stone Cannon, but to use the Spirit Stone Cannon to kill a Profound Core Cultivator, it was simply not realistic.
Under the attacks from these two Profound Core Cultivators, in only a couple of breaths of time, thousands of Hua Continent’s cultivator army turned into corpses.
Ning Cheng was really getting anxious in his heart, but he knew that there was no way for him to offer his help, if he did not kill off the five Profound Core Cultivators that were trapped inside the Killing Array, there was basically no way to support the outside.
Seeing that Ning Cheng and Man Rang were able to successively kill two of their Profound Core Cultivator, the red faced Profound Core Cultivator almost burst from anger. Now that two people, Man Rang and Jing Ji, had besieged him, he crazily resorted to bring out his own magic weapon, a 6 bladed door. He wanted to massacre them one after the other.
“Don’t mind his magic weapon, just attack that guy.” Ning Cheng saw that the red faced Profound Core Cultivator had brought out a six bladed door, which turned into an infinite number of Six Bladed Three Dimensional Blades of Light, as he shouted from the side.
He knew that once Man Rang and Jing Ji chose to block that six bladed blade of light, the result would absolutely be the Hidden Serial Killing Array breaking open, moreover without even killing the red faced Profound Core Cultivator. Since they were at present inside the Hidden Serial Killing Array, and had also besieged the red faced Profound Core Cultivator, they could still kill him. But once the killing array was broken, they would all be in the same situation, as such wanting to kill that red faced Profound Core Cultivator would simply not be easy at all.
This Hidden Serial Killing Array, even if it offered only a little bit of diversion, in war that little bit could also play a decisive role.
Man Rang and Jing Ji gawked, Ning Cheng said to not pay any attention to the red faced Profound Core Cultivator’s magic weapon, didn’t it mean that they would be walking towards their deaths? This kind of Six Bladed Three Dimensional Blades of Light, if they did not pay attention to it, then would they even have a life to live?
