Liu Jingning’s words startled everyone.
The Utmost Happiness Faction’s Supreme Celestial Art, the Ghost King’s Severed Blade?
It seemed as if they had never heard about this.
Even Xu Que was startled. He had already taken the souls back into the Firestorm Wheels so that they wouldn’t consume too much energy. It was fortunate that the previous confrontation had been quite quick, and they had finished the slaughter in three seconds. The souls didn’t consume much of their power, and Xu Que might be able to risk using them once again.
It was only when Xu Que heard Liu Jingning’s words that he thought about the attack of the two souls that had occurred a short while ago.
Xuanyuan Qishang’s attack had been quite simple. He had merely slapped the Taiyi Celestial’s head with his hand, instantly killing him.
Guan Chuchu’s attack, however, had seemed more powerful. She cast a magical seal that released a storm of wind blades that engulfed the other Taiyi Celestial. He was killed instantly and turned into a fog of blood. This had occurred so quickly, and the crowd had been impressed with her great power. Their first impression of her was as the strongest.
But when Liu Jingning saw this confrontation, she looked very surprised. As everyone had mulled over the Celestial Art that they had seen, they realized that it had been quite extraordinary.
Liu Jingning spoke in a low voice, and her expression turned grave, “The Celestial Art she just cast didn’t possess its true might. In the past, the Utmost Happiness Faction revealed great power in the Heaven Continent, and it depended upon the Ghost King’s Severed Blade Technique to achieve its power. This Celestial Art can kill opponents at a long distance, but its true power was that if it was unable to kill its opponent, it could still sever and extinguish his Taoist Connotation and weaken him, before carrying out further attacks.”
They were startled. They finally understood why Liu Jingning had been so surprised.
As a matter of fact, once a cultivator reached the Void Training Stage, his Taoist Connotation would become quite important. As his stage level became higher, the Taoist Connotation’s importance would surpass even the Celestial Core Power, just like in the two souls of Guan Chuchu and Xuanyuan Qishang.
They were both souls who had already lost their Celestial Core Power, but they possessed power great enough to crush all cultivators below the Celestial King stage, and they depended upon their Taoist Connotations to achieve these feats.
Once a Taoist Way appeared, it would be difficult to erase it. This was also the case for Gods. Even if a God had died many years ago, as long as a part of his Godhead was left, he could depend on it to come back to life one day.
This was why, as a cultivator’s stage level rose higher, his Taoist Connotation would become his main core.
But Liu Jingning told them that the Utmost Happiness Faction’s lost Celestial Art was unexpectedly able to extinguish its opponents’ Taoist Connotations, and this was tantamount to damaging the enemy’s main core. It was a fierce and terrifying Celestial Art, and it was no wonder that the Utmost Happiness Faction could make a name for itself in the Heaven Continent.
“F*ck! Kiddo, you should quickly release Guan Chuchu and have her teach us that Celestial Art,” Buttface shouted. He was quite excited, and he wanted to learn this Celestial Art that could cripple cultivators.
“Do you think that she will teach us?” Xu Que shrugged and looked doubtful.
If Guan Chuchu was able to listen to his instructions and teach him that Celestial Art, then the consequences would be too horrible to imagine. After all, such a matter meant that she possessed spiritual intelligence and wouldn’t assume mistakenly that he was her child. She might even retaliate against him.
“Don’t worry about it. I saw her cast it, and I feel as if I have grasped something about it. I may be able to comprehend it,” at this moment Liu Jingning spoke.
Liu Jingning was a Magic Art cultivator, which was an art passed down by the Utmost Happiness Faction, and it was the same as Guan Chuchu’s art. The Ghost King’s Severed Blade Technique was just one of the offensive techniques in the Magic Art, and this was why, after Liu Jingning had witnessed it, she understood more about it than most other people.
“No rush, she will have many more chances to fight, and you have a lot of time to try comprehending it through observation. But…now, we must consider how to divide the work upon entering,” Xu Que said with a smile.
Now that they had dealt with the two Taiyi Celestials, they could enter the Chiliad Gold Resurrection Vines’ farmland.
They didn’t have to worry about the talented youths who were inside, but there were a few peak Golden Celestial Guardians who could cause trouble. After all, on Xu Que’s side, the sole person able to contend against them was Mo Junchen, and he could only fight two of them at the same time. As for the others, dealing with them would be quite difficult.
If they could find the Chiliad Gold Resurrection Vines in advance, all their issues would be easily solved. But if they couldn’t find them right away, they would probably have to fight a bitter battle with low odds of success.
However, they had the Divine Aperture’s Shell that could conceal their auras.
But they still couldn’t ascertain what kind of environment awaited them inside, and it was unknown whether the Divine Aperture’s Shell could conceal them thoroughly. If it couldn’t conceal them, they would have to come up with another plan.
“I can take charge of the most important role, and it’s bringing up the rear,” Buttface volunteered.
“It would be better to leave such an important task to me,” Duan Jiude wanted to fight over this role.
“What damned rear!” Xu Que shouted angrily. The enemies didn’t have any reinforcements, and the reason why they wanted to bring up the rear was just to hide in the rear and watch everything from the sidelines.
“According to my view about this matter, in case our tracks have been exposed, it would be better for us to charge ahead together. Let’s take charge of holding up those people, while Faction Master Xu goes to look for the Chiliad Gold Resurrection Vines. He should first treat the two souls so that they can fight without losing their energy,” Mo Junchen presented a simple plan.
This was obviously the best plan. Moreover, it would still tie up Duan Jiude and Buttface and pull them into the fight. It would prevent them from defecting and running away.
“It should be like this. Anyone who dares to run away or cower will be fed a pound of feces and used to make Stinky Tofu.” Xu Que approved of Mo Junchen’s suggestion.
When Buttface heard about eating a pound of feces, his eyes lit up, but once he heard that he would be cooked with stinky tofu, disappointment appeared on his face.
He could eat faces, but he still couldn’t endure being boiled alive with stinky tofu.
“Let’s go,” In the end, Xu Que waved his hand and strode toward the tunnel while using the Divine Aperture’s Shell.
The others followed him closely, and soon they had all entered the tunnel.
A strong suction force was present in the tunnel, and it pulled them down quickly.
However, it was fortunate that such a process didn’t last for long, and, after several seconds, their feet landed on solid ground.
The surroundings were dusky and were engulfed in a thick fog that was filled with dust. Their views were impaired and they couldn’t see very far. What was most astonishing was that even their Soul Detection had been affected, and, every time they tried to use it to explore a distant region, they would be obstructed by the fog.
“D*mn it! Isn’t this place’s haze too dense?” Xu Que was startled, and he raised his head. The entrance could still be made out. It hung above their heads like a bright moon.
“Huh? I suddenly feel like it was a mistake not to leave anyone up above to bring up the rear,” Xu Que suddenly recalled something and chuckled sheepishly.
“What do you mean?” Buttface and Duan Jiude looked at Xu Que.
Xu Que smiled bitterly. “Why do you think the two Taiyi Celestials didn’t go down? They probably didn’t do so just to protect the entrance. The entrance may probably close by itself after a certain period, and they would have to open it once again to release the people inside.”
“F*ck! Ha, ha, ha, that could be the case. It’s only me who is up to such a task,” Buttface shouted in delight and surprise. He seemed as if he felt relieved from a heavy burden, as if he had just escaped from death.
Duan Jiude wore a vexed and resentful look. He had also wanted to bring up the rear, but the issue was that… he didn’t know how to operate the seals used to open the entrance. His talent in this field wasn’t as outstanding as Buttface’s, and he couldn’t learn it through a single observation.
“I will go out… Huh, hold on! Did you smell something? It seems a blood odor has wafted over,” as Buttface was about to go out once again, he twitched his nose and spoke with surprise.
Xu Que and the others were startled. They were aware that Buttface had a keen sense of smell, and he was usually able to smell many odors before they were. At this moment, he had unexpectedly smelled the odor of fresh blood, which meant that someone had just died here a while ago.
“F*ck! Damn it! Kiddo, let’s run away quickly. I have smelled a familiar odor, and it’s that hateful lassie,” at this moment, Buttface shouted sharply and quickly rushed toward the entrance atop his head.
Duan Jiude quickly followed him.
