Chapter 3216: Slain Instantly
As soon as he mentioned the bronze lamp, the Darkstar Emperor seemed powerless.
Jian Chen fell silent.
He had already obtained the Grand Exalt’s essence blood as he had wished and achieved his goal in entering the Darkstar World, but this was still the last time he could enter this world after all.
He would not have any opportunity to come here again.
The items in the bronze lamp truly tempted him very much.
He was uncertain about everything inside, but just the items he had caught a glimpse of made him drool with envy.
To him, this was without a doubt a great fortune.
If such a great fortune simply slipped through the cracks of his fingers, it would be far too great of a pity.
It was not because there were no bounds to his greed, but because the Darkstar Emperor was also willing to give him all of the God Tier items within the bronze lamp that could assist Jian Chen in increasing his strength.
As a result, as long as it was possible, Jian Chen obviously wanted to make an effort to get his hands on them.
“I have some God Tier heavenly resources on me.
These heavenly resources possess Xuanhuang Qi, so they are immune to the will of Grand Exalts.
See if you can reach Chaotic Prime with these God Tier heavenly resources,” Jian Chen said in thought.
The Darkstar Emperor shook his head and said, “The reason why your God Tier heavenly resources are immune to the will of Grand Exalts is because they grew in a Xuanhuang Microcosm.
All heavenly resources that grow in such a world have completely departed from their original species, undergoing a certain transformation and basically merging with Xuanhuang Qi.
That is why they are immune to the will of Grand Exalts.”
“And there’s the first batch of high grade Godking pills you brought in from the outside world too.
Xuanhuang Qi managed to merge with these pills perfectly because you added Xuanhuang spiritual fluid during the refinement process, such that they completely changed.
That is why they’re also immune to the restrictions of the will of Grand Exalts.”
“However, that won’t work on me.”
“The will of the Grand Exalt of the Wood Spirits is everywhere.
It constantly suppresses my race, so even if I ingest the heavenly resources with Xuanhuang Qi, they cannot change my bloodline.
They cannot turn me into a completely different lifeform like these heavenly resources and the high grade Godking pills you refined.” The Darkstar Emperor explained patiently.
His knowledge in this area clearly exceeded Jian Chen’s.
“Looks like we can only forget about it then,” Jian Chen said gently.
He found it to be a great pity.
Suddenly, the Darkstar Emperor’s eyes narrowed slightly.
He said in thought, “Perhaps we can try a different method.
It’s not exactly impossible…”
Jian Chen’s eyes lit up when he heard that.
“You have a way”
The Darkstar Emperor pondered it for a while and said slowly, “The space within the bronze lamp can only truly be opened when I’m a Chaotic Prime.
I can’t reach Chaotic Prime properly, but as long as I remain at that realm for a moment, it should be enough.
I should be able to remove some items from the bronze lamp.”
The Darkstar Emperor looked at Jian Chen with shining interest.
“However, I’ll need your help.
I need you to take out a large quantity of heavenly resources with Xuanhuang Qi to temporarily block the will of the Grand Exalt of the Wood Spirits with the thick Xuanhuang Qi.
It will buy me enough time to reach Chaotic Prime.”
“Apart from that, I’ll also require your God Tier heavenly resources to break through.
I can reach Chaotic Prime at any moment given my current cultivation if it were not for the suppression from the Grand Exalt of the Wood Spirits, but God Tier heavenly resources with Xuanhuang Qi will allow me to break through even faster.”
“After you break through, how do you plan on dealing with the will of the Grand Exalt of the Wood Spirits” Jian Chen asked.
He knew the Grand Exalt of the Wood Spirits had suppressed the Darkstar race even more harshly than when outsiders entered here.
If outsiders crossed the age of a thousand after entering the Darkstar World, they would not face any punishment.
However, if a member of the Darkstar race reached Chaotic Prime under the laws set down by the Grand Exalt of the Wood Spirits, that would be equivalent to breaking the laws of the world.
They would be mercilessly erased by the Grand Exalt of the Wood Spirits.
Not only did the laws set down by the Grand Exalt of the Wood Spirits seal off the Darkstar race’s path to Chaotic Prime, but it also possessed the ability to kill all Chaotic Primes of the Darkstar race.
As a result, the Darkstar race could only use the great ceremony to weaken the will of the Grand Exalt of the Wood Spirits if they wanted to produce any Chaotic Primes.
“I will sever my cultivation immediately and fall back down to Infinite Prime,” the Darkstar Emperor said sternly.
Jian Chen was hesitant.
He asked in concern, “What if any accidents happen”
Even if accidents occur, I have the bronze lamp.
It can preserve my soul!” the Darkstar Emperor said.
If that’s the case, then let’s try it.”
Afterwards, Jian Chen took out a large quantity of Xuanhuang spiritual fluid, followed by many heavenly resources with Xuanhuang Qi.
At a time like this, he could no longer care about whether it was a waste or not.
He crushed all of the heavenly resources into powder before merging it with the Xuanhuang spiritual fluid to form a sticky paste.
He smeared the paste onto the Darkstar Emperor, using the dense Xuanhuang Qi to cloak the Darkstar Emperor’s presence and temporarily block out the will of the Grand Exalt of the Wood Spirits.
The Darkstar Emperor seemed like he was made of mud.
The clayey medicinal paste covered his entire body.
This was only the first line of defence.
Further away, Jian Chen turned many more heavenly resources into paste before enveloping the Darkstar Emperor in an even larger shell.
At that instant, the restriction from the laws of the Grand Exalt of the Wood Spirits vanished.
The Darkstar Emperor immediately ingested the heavenly resources that Jian Chen had prepared for him, making a push for Chaotic Prime.
Reaching Chaotic Prime truly posed no difficulty to the Darkstar Emperor at all.
In just a few seconds, the Darkstar Emperor’s presence changed in terms of quality.
He had already reached Chaotic Prime effortlessly.
The entire process was extremely natural and extremely smooth, without any sense of difficulty.
Even Jian Chen had never witnessed someone reaching Chaotic Prime as easily as the Darkstar Emperor.
Afterwards, the Darkstar Emperor’s cultivation erupted like a volcano after reaching Chaotic Prime, beginning to climb at an unbelievable rate.
It was as swift as it could be.
He had remained at the Ninth Heavenly Layer of Infinite Prime for far, far too long.
With so much accumulated power, he seemed unstoppable as soon as he broke through.
However, the Darkstar Emperor’s mind was not on his cultivation anymore.
As soon as he reached Chaotic Prime, he gathered all of his power and began opening the space in the bronze lamp.
But at this moment, the world rumbled, and the ways shook.
A terrifying will descended.
Jian Chen’s expression changed drastically.
Before this terrifying will, a chill immediately ran down his spine.
He could not even muster the willpower to put up any resistance.
“The will of a Grand Exalt!” He shivered inside.
Before this will, he felt like a rowboat in the vast ocean, where the slightest wave could completely swallow him.
Before the paramount will, Jian Chen was unable to do anything at all!
The will directly pierced the barrier of Xuanhuang Qi that Jian Chen had created, descending upon the Darkstar Emperor instantly.
The Darkstar Emperor turned to a pile of dust silently, without leaving behind any proper remains.
Only a bronze lamp that shone dimly hovered in the air silently.
