Thunder Shadow’s injuries weren’t serious. Just now, it had only entangle the three Black Ink Clan Territory Lords for a moment before Ouyang Lie arrived.
After breaking through and defeating three powerful enemies, Ouyang Lie felt his entire body relax and his mood lighten as he shouted happily!
If he had only been at the peak of the Eighth Order, he might not have been able to kill these three Territory Lords single-handedly. Now that he was a Ninth Order, killing them is a piece of cake.
When one’s cultivation reached the High Rank Open Heaven, advancing one rank will have such differences.
If not for this, the Human Race wouldn’t have produced so many Ninth Order masters over the years. Many of the older generation’s masters had reached the peak of the Eighth Order due to their own limitations.
Even someone like Yang Kai, who could suppress an opponent of the same grade, was somewhat helpless in the face of an expert like the Black Ink Clan’s Royal Lord. Besides relying on his Space Ability to escape, it was almost impossible for him to face them head-on, let alone an Eighth Order.
Seeing Yang Kai and the others arrive, Ouyang Lie asked, “Junior Brothers and Sister, if I want to seek out enemies and kill bandits, would you like to accompany me?”
Having just broken through to the Ninth Order, Ouyang Lie was in high spirits and naturally wanted to show off his skills in this universe furnace world. There were many masters from the Black Ink Clan who had come this time, and before this, he had been worried about encountering a Pseudo-Royal Lord. Now, he was eager to find a Pseudo-Royal Lord to practice and stabilize his realm.
Yang Kai smiled, “There’s no need. Senior Brother’s current situation is more suitable for him to act alone. Junior Brother Zhan and the others, I’ll take care of them.”
Ouyang Lie nodded slightly, “That's also good.”
It was just as Yang Kai had said, he is now a Ninth Order, so his strength has greatly increased, making it more convenient for him to act alone. As for Zhan Tianhe and the others, following Yang Kai was undoubtedly more suitable. With four Eighth Order masters and Thunder Shadow, if they really encountered the Black Ink Clan’s Pseudo-Royal Lord, they could instantly form a Five Directions Array. With Yang Kai as the formation eye, they could still fight.
There was no need to worry about safety.
Turning his head to look into the depths of the void, Ouyang Lie smiled lightly, “Big Head Xiang also came in, I wonder if he has found his own lucky chance. I’ll go find him and if I have the chance, I’ll give him a Spirit Pill.”
Originally, he had wanted to find a Best Quality Open Heaven Pill for Yang Kai, but in the end, Yang Kai had not been able to use it, and instead, he had received Yang Kai’s favor. Now, the Human Race’s most urgent need for a Best Quality Open Heaven Pill was undoubtedly Xiang Shan. After fighting together for so many years, Ouyang Lie was still quite concerned about Xiang Shan.
If Xiang Shan could obtain an opportunity to advance to the Ninth Order, it would be of much greater help to the Human Race than him.
Yang Kai cupped his fists and said, “Then I wish Senior Brother all the best!”
Ouyang Lie patted his shoulder and warned, “Be careful.”
Yang Kai nodded.
Ouyang Lie laughed loudly and transformed into a streak of light, flying off into the distance as he shouted, “I’ll go!”
His tone was filled with confidence.
After watching Ouyang Lie leave, Yang Kai called out to everyone, “Let’s go.”
Zhan Tianhe and the others nodded, naturally following Yang Kai’s lead. Compared to when they first entered the Universe Furnace, they were undoubtedly much more relaxed.
When the three of them first entered this universe furnace world, all of them were extremely cautious. They weren’t afraid of ordinary Territory Lords or Black Ink Clan members, but they were afraid of encountering the Black Ink Clan’s Pseudo-Royal Lord.
In the end, what they were afraid of came true, and they really did encounter a Pseudo-Royal Lord. If it weren’t for Ouyang Lie, who was alone, sensing the aftershocks of their battle and coming to help, they really might have died.
Now that they had met up with Yang Kai and Thunder Shadow, the five masters could form their Five Directions Array at any time, and if they were to encounter a Pseudo-Royal Lord, they would have the qualifications to compete with him.
Because this universe furnace world was filled with the shattered Dao Marks, the concept of time and space was extremely vague. Even though it had undergone several transformations, it had not undergone any substantial changes. Perhaps it would take many more transformations for the Dao Marks to open up the invisible fog of this universe furnace world. At that time, the concept of time and space would become clear.
The group didn’t have any clear goals. In fact, whether it was the Human Race or the Black Ink Clan, none of them had a specific goal after entering this universe furnace world.
Their biggest goal was undoubtedly to find a Best Quality Open Heaven Pill, but no one knew where it was, so they could only wander around and try their luck.
With his previous experience, Yang Kai was able to use the Sun and Moon Marks to determine the location of the Best Quality Open Heaven Pill, but there were some limitations. If the distance between them was too great, Yang Kai would be helpless.
Therefore, at this moment, Yang Kai was simply leading Zhan Tianhe and the others. Wherever they went, Thunder Shadow would squat on his shoulder and activate his Natal Divine Ability to conceal their whereabouts.
As such, even if there were Black Ink Clan masters investigating, if they didn’t investigate carefully, they might not be able to discover them.
Occasionally, they would encounter a chaotic places where some Chaos Body gathered, so everyone would explore it deeply. They did not find any Best Quality Open Heaven Pills, but instead found some Lower Quality ones.
In comparison, the number of Lower Quality Open Heaven Pills produced in this universe furnace world was quite high. As long as one had the heart, there would always be some gains.
Although these Lower Quality Open Heaven Pills couldn’t help Human Race cultivators break through their shackles, they were still very useful. Those Seventh Order Open Heaven that were lacking in accumulation could use it to save a lot of time in secluded cultivation and quickly break through their bottlenecks to reach the Eighth Order.
This time, quite a number of Human Race Seventh Order masters had entered, and the female disciple Yang Kai had met before was one of them.
It was foreseeable that in this trip to the Universe Furnace, the Human Race would produce many new Eighth Order masters.
After walking for a while, Yang Kai suddenly felt something and changed direction, quickly flying off while sending a message to Zhan Tianhe and the others, “Be careful!”
Zhan Tianhe and the others immediately understood that they had discovered the whereabouts of the enemy, so all of them waited with rapt attention.
A short while later, two powerful auras entered everyone’s perception. Judging from their auras, these two were undoubtedly the Territory Lords of the Black Ink Clan who were currently exploring this universe furnace world.
With five against two and Yang Kai holding the fort, it was naturally not difficult.
With the support of the Thunder Shadow’s Natal Divine Ability, the two Territory Lords didn't notice anything until they were very close.
This caused Zhan Tianhe and the others to secretly sigh in amazement. The Natal Divine Ability of this Monster Emperor from the Myriad Monster World was simply too difficult to guard against. If Thunder Shadow were to approach them like this, they would definitely not be able to discover it.
Most importantly, not only could this Natal Divine Ability be used by him, it could also be used on others.
Secretly rejoicing that this Master were on their side, if he was on the Black Ink Clan’s side, it would be quite a headache.
It wasn’t until Yang Kai’s side suddenly attacked that the two Black Ink Clan Territory Lords who were traveling together finally realized what was happening. However, just as they were about to activate their Ink Force, before they could even execute a single move, they suddenly heard a loud crashing sound of water.
This confused the two Territory Lords. Where did this strange sound of water come from?
Turning their heads, they saw a huge river sweeping towards them like a waterfall. The two Territory Lords were shocked as they frantically pushed their strength towards the river.
However, it was to no avail. The attack condensed from the Ink Force was like a stone thrown into the sea, without any reaction at all. The two Territory Lords instantly disappeared.
On the side, Zhan Tianhe and the others, who were preparing to attack together, looked at each other in dismay, feeling a sense of helplessness.
Five against two, this was a battle without any suspense, but even a lion would use its full strength to capture a rabbit. Zhan Tianhe and the others had long since planned to fight together and end this battle quickly.
Unexpectedly, Yang Kai didn’t even give them a chance to attack, directly summoning the Space-Time River and dragging the two Territory Lords inside.
Turning his head to look at Yang Kai, he saw the latter’s brow furrow and the power of the Great Dao surging around him. Suddenly, he realized that this person was probably trying to use these two Territory Lords to test out his new technique.
The Space-Time River had not been born for long, so although it had displayed great brilliance while protecting Ouyang Lie, it was only because of the complete Great Dao’s suppression of the Chaos Body.
Whether or not this method could be used against an enemy was something Yang Kai couldn’t figure out, so he naturally needed to probe further.
The two Territory Lords were not dead and had been swept into the Space-Time River. At this moment, they were trying to find a way out.
However, the Space-Time River was filled with turbulent undercurrents and the power of the Great Dao was abundant. Under the interlacing of space and time, the space inside was chaotic and unpredictable. Unless one’s strength far surpassed Yang Kai’s or had extremely high attainments in this Great Dao, how could it be so easy to find a way out?
These two Territory Lords were like headless flies trapped inside. Although they were very close to each other, they couldn’t sense each other’s existence at all. They had already been separated by this strange space.
The space in the Space-Time River was somewhat similar to the space where the Universe Furnace’s projection was located. Although it was only a short distance away, it was actually far away.
Yang Kai observed for a moment, feeling the force of these two Territory Lords’ attacks in the Space-Time River, his brow arched slightly.
He hadn’t fully activated the power of the Space-Time River, so the two Territory Lords had simply been trapped without encountering any danger.
With the current situation, Yang Kai’s new method of trapping enemies far exceeded his expectations, easily trapping two of the Black Ink Clan’s Territory Lords. Yang Kai felt that even if another ten or so of them came, he wouldn’t feel any pressure.
Even if it was a Pseudo-Royal Lord, Yang Kai felt he could still hold on.
If he could trap them, he would have a chance to kill them. At this moment, Yang Kai could throw himself into the Space-Time River and kill the trapped enemy inside.
Thinking so, Yang Kai flashed into the Space-Time River.
A moment later, the Space-Time River formed a wave and Yang Kai leapt out, carrying the lifeless corpse of the Black Ink Clan’s Territory Lord.
Everything was finished in just two breaths…
Zhan Tianhe and the others were all dumbfounded. This was a Territory Lord, how could he be killed so easily? Why did it feel like he was slaughtering a chicken?
