“Whether it will fade or not, we’ll know once we try.” Now that things had come to this, any possibility was worth trying.
Fan Xun and the others once again busied themselves, adding a few more restriction to the Great Array, and after two days, everything was finally settled.
Just like before, when Yang Kai walked into the Great Array, Fan Xun’s hand seals changed and the Sealing Array opened.
Yang Kai activated the Light of Purification and allowed the Light of Purification to fill the entire array and remain inside.
Looking at the pure white light, Fan Xun and the others felt a burst of pain and self-reproach. Over the past few months, as their experiments failed time again, they had wasted a lot of the Light of Purification, causing them to lose confidence and doubt everything they had learned over the years.
Before the Sealing Array was activated, the two Space Arrays had already been inspected and were operating well.
Now that the Great Array had been activated, Yang Kai stood on top of the Space Array and tried to teleport, but failed. Just as Fan Xun had said, this Sealing Array had taken a great deal of effort to isolate the inside from the outside world. In other words, the space inside this Sealing Array could not be connected to the outside world. Not to mention the two Space Arrays, even if Yang Kai used Space Teleportation, he would not be able to escape from the Array without breaking it.
“Yang Kai, are you ready?” Fan Xun asked.
Yang Kai replied, “Alright, Martial Uncle Fan, please go ahead.”
Fan Xun nodded slightly and changed the hand seal in his hand, causing the array flag to sway and the array to undergo some minor changes. Outside the array, everyone’s eyes were fixed on it.
In the next moment, an extremely obvious fluctuation of Space Force came from the Great Array. Everyone knew that Yang Kai, who was inside it, had activated the power of the Space Array and quickly turned to look. Sure enough, Yang Kai’s figure suddenly appeared above another Space Array.
However, as soon as he appeared, some pure white light appeared and quickly disappeared.
This white light was undoubtedly the purifying light that had been sealed inside the Great Array.
The moment the two Space Arrays connected, not only did Yang Kai’s figure appear, but even the Light of Purification also leaked out from the Space Arrays.
Fan Xun frowned. This situation was both unexpected and expected, making him feel helpless.
Yang Kai sighed lightly. If even the Space Array couldn’t solve this problem, he didn’t know how to solve it.
This failure had caused Yang Kai to suffer a slight blow, because this matter had a lot to do with him. If he couldn’t resolve it, the waste of the Light of Purification was secondary, moreover his future situation wouldn’t be good.
Just as he was about to comfort Fan Xun and the others and ask them to think of a solution, Feng Ying suddenly called out, “Martial Uncle Dongguo!”
When everyone heard this, they quickly turned to look at her and saw her bowing towards a certain spot in the sky. Following her gaze, they saw a burly middle-aged man floating in the air, quietly observing the scene below.
Fan Xun and the others quickly bowed, and Yang Kai followed suit.
He didn’t know who this person was. Although he had seen most of the Eighth Order Open Heaven masters in Blue Sky Pass last time, there were still a few who hadn’t shown up yet. Feng Ying’s explanation was that it was impossible for Zhong Liang to summon all of the Eighth Order Open Heaven masters back to discuss matters, so there was a need to leave some people on the battlefield.
This Martial Uncle Dongguo was obviously one of them.
But then again, although he didn’t know who this person was, he had seen him several times over the past few days. Each time, this Martial Uncle Dongguo would lead a group of people to fly over his head in a hurry.
On several occasions, Yang Kai noticed that he was also looking down curiously, but it seemed he had some urgent matters to attend to and didn’t come down to investigate.
This time, he had some free time. He didn’t know how long he had been here, but everyone had been so focused on testing the effects of the Space Array that they hadn’t noticed his arrival.
Martial Uncle Dongguo walked down step by step, as if there was an invisible staircase beneath his feet. He turned his head to look at the Sealing Array, then back at Yang Kai, sizing him up before nodding with a smile.
Yang Kai didn’t recognize him, but he recognize Yang Kai. He knew that there was a person here who could purify and disperse the Ink Force. Over the past few months, Yang Kai had helped countless clansmen resolve their crisis, and his disciples had also benefited greatly.
So every time he passed by this place, he would pay attention to it.
Feng Ying knew that Yang Kai wasn’t familiar with Blue Sky Pass and didn’t recognize the person in front of him, so she took the initiative to explain, “This is Martial Uncle Dongguo Anping from Divine Cauldron Heaven.”
Divine Cauldron Heaven, Yang Kai’s brow rose as he thought of Xu Zhen, that little fatty.
Speaking of which, ever since they parted ways in the Great Ruins Boundary, Yang Kai had not seen that little fatty again, but he was still a core disciple of Divine Cauldron Heaven, and after his experience in the Great Ruins Boundary, he had gained the favor of a certain Holy Spirit and had grown quite a bit. It was also rumoured that he had successfully broken through to the Sixth Order.
“Greetings, Martial Uncle Dongguo,” Yang Kai bowed again.
Dongguo Anping nodded, “There’s no need to be so polite. I’ve long heard that you’re here, but i've been on a mission a few times, so it wasn’t convenient for me to come down. This time, I just happened to pass by and came to take a look.”
Feng Ying explained, “Every time the Ink Clan attacks, the people in Divine Cauldron Heaven are the busiest. On the battlefield, the Palace Artifact are damaged, and a large number of Artifact Refiners are needed to repair them. The disciples of Divine Cauldron Heaven are proficient in Artifact Refining, so this task is naturally given to them.”
Hearing this, Yang Kai suddenly understood why he had been seeing this person running around all this time. It turned out that he was going to repair some damaged palace artifacts, and Divine Cauldron Heaven was famous for their Artifact Refining skills, so repairing the palace artifacts was no problem for him.
It could even be said that the Human Race’s various mountain passes, as well as the large number of palace artifacts, were basically all created by Divine Cauldron Heaven Disciples. Array masters like Fan Xun were all extremely precious talents. Such talents would not easily step into the battlefield, lest they suffer losses or be turned into Ink Disciples, they would provide strong support to their clansmen.
“What are you guys busy with?” Dongguo Anping asked as he looked towards the Sealing Array. After passing by this place several times, he could see some clues, but he wasn’t sure if it was what he was thinking.
It was precisely because he had some guesses that he had deliberately stopped to observe.
Feng Ying quickly explained the various problems they had encountered during these past few months. This man in front of them is an Eighth Order Open Heaaven master and also a Garrison's Chief. Although he wouldn’t easily step onto the battlefield, he was still qualified to ask about such matters, so Feng Ying didn’t try to hide anything.
Dongguo Anping nodded, “So that’s how it is.” Suddenly, he said, “Since the Dao of Arrays can’t perfectly solve the problem of the Light of Purification, have you considered the Dao of Artifact Refining?”
Fan Xun was stunned, “Artifact Refining?” They were all Array Grandmasters, so when they encountered a problem, they naturally had to think about it from the perspective of Array Dao. How could they have thought about Artifact Refining?
“Artifact Refining,” Yang Kai also muttered before his eyes lit up and he clapped, “Right… how could I have forgotten?”
Sometimes, one might not be able to see the light once they reached the dark side of the road. The road ahead could be a steep cliff. During this period of time, he had been working together with Fan Xun and the others and had been led to think about the Array Dao, but he had never thought about the Artifact Refining Dao.
Back in the Great Ruins Boundary, the little fatty Xu Zhen had personally refined a Yuan Magnetic Divine Bottle Gourd for him, which contained a large amount of Yuan Magnetic Divine Light! Yang Kai had used this Yuan Magnetic Divine Bottle Gourd to fight many powerful enemies.
Strictly speaking, the Yuan Magnetic Divine Light and the Light of Purification were essentially the same. They were both a type of energy, but their effects were different, and both were light!
Since the Yuan Magnetic Divine Bottle Gourd could seal the Yuan Magnetic Divine Light, it could naturally also seal the Light of Purification.
Looking excited, Yang Kai took out the Yuan Magnetic Divine Bottle Gourd and handed it to Dongguo Anping, “Elder, please take a look at this.”
Dongguo Anping stretched out his hand and received it, his brow immediately furrowing, “It has my Divine Cauldron Heaven’s handiwork… Which little bastard didn’t learn enough to refine something like this?”
Yang Kai blushed with shame. When this Yuan Magnetic Divine Bottle Gourd was refined, Xu Zhen hadn’t reached the Open Heaven Stage yet and had only condensed his own Dao Seal, so his cultivation wasn’t very high. Although he had obtained the True Inheritance of Divine Cauldron Heaven, in the eyes of an Artifact Refining Grandmaster like Dongguo Anping, the method of refining was quite crude.
Currently, there was no more Yuan Magnetic Divine Light in the Yuan Magnetic Divine Divine Bottle Gourd. Back then, the Void Land was in desperate need of cultivation resources, and the Yuan Magnetic Divine Light belonged to the Gold Element and its grade wasn’t low, so Yang Kai had taken it out for his disciples to refine.
“This gourd is quite interesting,” Dongguo Anping carefully examined it, “Is this gourd born from the world?”
Yang Kai wore a look of admiration, “Elder have good eyes.”
Dongguo Anping pondered for a moment before asking, “You want me to refine something like this to seal the Light of Purification? In that case, even without you, the others can dispel the Ink Force with it.”
Yang Kai shook his head, “That’s not the case. Although this method is feasible, it should be more wasteful. Disciple wants to ask Elder to create a treasure that can satisfy the effects of sealing the Light of Purification. At the same time, it can avoid waste and also allow people to enter and exit freely. Is Elder capable of this?”
Dongguo Anping held the Yuan Magnetic Divine Bottle Gourd in his hand, his brow furrowed in thought as everyone stared at him.
After a while, Dongguo Anping nodded and said, “It can be done.”
Yang Kai was overjoyed, “Really?” As soon as the words left his mouth, he realized something was wrong and quickly explained, “Elder, please forgive me, it’s not that this disciple doesn’t believe it, it’s just that this matter is too important and I have to be careful.”
Dongguo Anping smiled and said, “It’s fine, I understand how you feel, but since this old master says it’s possible, it’s only natural. En, the recent war has been a bit tense, so I’ll be a bit busy. How about this, I’ll take some time to refine it for you, at least a month or three months.”
Saying so, he tossed the Yuan Magnetic Divine Bottle Gourd back to Yang Kai.
Yang Kai let out a long sigh and cupped his fists, “Many thanks for Martial Uncle hard work!”
Dongguo Anping waved his hand and said, “We’re all working for our clansmen, so we’re just doing our own jobs.” He then turned to Fan Xun and the others and said, “All of you, come with me. I’ll need your help with the Sealing Array.”
Fan Xun and the others naturally obeyed.
