After the Immortal Cultivators’ war base landed on Kunlun, no threats had been discovered. Therefore, few battle puppets had been produced.
Most of the battle puppets had been taken underground and had been drained in the series of fierce battles.
However, in order to collect as many resources as possible, the Immortal Cultivators had manufactured numerous mining puppets, which were gadgets that looked like six-footed spiders!
Although the metal spiders were only for mining purpose, there were simply too many of them. When they lunged forward together, they could be a major headache.
The member of the Pangu Clan, who barely had any intact skin now, struggled in the crazy tide of spiders. He attacked time and time again, throwing out purple fire with his tail and melting countless spiders.
But the remaining spiders still marched toward him fearlessly.
In order to collect the minerals, they had all been installed with high-intensity rock mincers, high-frequency oscillating knives, and super-alloy fixation clangs on the abdomen.
Just as the magical equipment could dig out the raw minerals that contained crystals and rare metals from deep down the rock stratums, it could also dig through the member of the Pangu Clan’s body of flesh and blood and grind his stomach into powder!
Surrounded by thousands of metal spiders, the purple fire thrown out from the member of the Pangu Clan’s tail became ever dimmer, and the frequency of him ripping apart the metal spiders was greatly reduced, too.
The member of the Pangu Clan was apparently on the verge of collapse.
Li Yao definitely did not mind making things worse for him.
Hitting the ground with the remaining arm, Draconic Phoenix was revolving fast on the same place, and the right leg left turned into an invincible drill, aiming for the chest of the member of the Pangu Clan!
The member of the Pangu Clan did not evade or establish a force field to interfere with the attack. He suffered the blow hard and sure, falling down into the swarm of spiders again!
An enormous hole was pierced open in the giant’s chest, through which one could see many feebly bouncing organs.
A number of metal spiders took the opportunity to crawl into the wound!
Li Yao was about to rise up and continue attacking when he suddenly sensed a cluster of dangerous spiritual waves behind him.
When he turned around, he was greatly alarmed. The war base of the Immortal Cultivators had slowly risen up from the folds of the land without him noticing. The arc-shaped plate on the top of the base glided to two sides, and a grand cannon more than fifty meters long was heaved from inside. The hundreds of thousands of runes carved on the barrel were all emitting mysterious blackness. Black smoke that looked like skeletons was condensing in front of the cannon, gathering, twisting, and screaming!
For a moment, a ghostly wind was blowing. The whole of Kunlun seemed to have turned into a hell!
Li Yao vaguely sensed that it was yet another piece of vicious magical equipment that involved the unrested souls.
He did not know that the Immortal Cultivators had kept such weapons to themselves!
Judging from the scale of the grand cannon, even Burning Prairie might have been damaged if it had landed without defense!
The skeleton-like black smoke was formed into an air mass more than a hundred meters in diameter before it was abruptly shot out from the barrel!
The attack was so powerful that the entire war base shivered in midair.
The black smoke smashed the member of the Pangu Clan overwhelmingly!
The gray giant, enveloped in the super-corrosive turbulence, revealed his bright golden bones as his flesh was melted into mucus!
The member of the Pangu Clan uttered a devastating scream. His skin and flesh were suddenly dried, and he was as thin as a skeleton!
But the fire of spiritual energy on him soared yet again to compete with the black swirl while shattering countless metal spiders into the most fundamental components!
Li Yao knew that it was the dying struggle that the member of the Pangu Clan performed at the cost of the last bit of his soul and blood!
Right then, the most pleasant music suddenly echoed inside Li Yao’s brain, while a spell was glittering, which had been adored by a golden line at the edge outside of the already glamorous brilliance!
Little Black had finally found a technique that such a broken Colossus could activate!
Li Yao was overjoyed. He focused his attention on parsing the mechanism of the technique.
The illustrations that stored the essence of the technique, in the meantime, were also etched into his soul and unraveled slowly!
When he adjusted the flow of spiritual energy inside his body precisely according to the guidance of the technique, the spell suddenly began burning. It rushed out of his brain and, flying around Draconic Phoenix’s right arm, dived in deeply!
Five sophisticated ancient characters immediately surfaced on Draconic Phoenix’s right arm. They turned into fibers of light and covered the entire arm evenly.
Draconic Phoenix’s right arm dissected itself silently, revealing the delicate, interconnected components inside.
Infinite spiritual energy burst out like a volcanic eruption and enveloped the right arm that had been dismembered. It then spread out, eventually turning into a furiously burning fiery falcon!
The fiery falcon was flapping the wings and grunting impatiently with killing intent so vivid that it seemed as if a primeval beast had truly crossed time and space and landed on Draconic Phoenix’s arm!
However, when Li Yao observed from a different perspective, the fiery falcon became as thin as the wing of a cicada, if not a plane without thickness!
It was a very weird feeling.
He felt that he had torn apart three-dimensional space with Draconic Phoenix’s right hand and snatched a fiery falcon that was absolutely superficial from the infinite void!
Li Yao had no time to think.
Draconic Phoenix had no power source itself and was only functioning with Li Yao’s burning his life. Every technique was performed at the cost of Li Yao’s sweat and blood.
His soul was extremely exhausted in the first place. After condensing such a weird ‘two-dimensional falcon’, he felt that his brains had been squeezed out.
Narrowing his eyes, Li Yao focused on the member of the Pangu Clan’s neck. He raised the right arm of Draconic Phoenix, which had been dissected. The fiery falcon opened its wings to the maximum, like a longbow that had been tightened, ready to fly!
Li Yao sensed that his soul was resonating with an ancient and profound force deep inside the Colossus.
The resonation flowed to his throat from his chest in the blink of an eye, making him roar bleakly and domineeringly!
The fiery falcon was thrown out. With an ear-splitting shriek, it turned into a falcon-shaped blade and dashed toward the member of the Pangu Clan.
Although it was awkward, middle-school-student behavior for a Nascent Soul Stage Cultivator to shout the name of a move during a fierce battle, it was the only way to meld the Cultivator’s flesh, will, and soul into the Colossus completely. The power of the technique would be boosted to the maximum!
The ‘Phoenix Demolisher’ reached the member of the Pangu Clan without a sound.
It was like a technique from a whole different world, leaving absolutely no sound, light, or electromagnetic waves in this one.
With a thickness a thousand times thinner than a piece of paper, it was barely possible to be discovered by the target, who could see a thin, red line in midair at best.
They would barely be able to tell whether the red line was still or coming at them!
The member of the Pangu Clan was still dealing with the black smoke and the crazy spiders. His senses had been reduced to the minimum.
When he noticed the Phoenix Demolisher, he only had the time to bulge his eyes and form a spiritual shield in front of his chest.
However, the front half of the Phoenix Demolisher had already cut in before the shield closed and flashed across his neck, which was as thick as a crystal train!
The member of the Pangu Clan’s body suddenly shook. He struggled for a moment longer because of inertia. His face grew more and more confused, and gray fog was popping up inside his pure black eyes, while a long, narrow line appeared on his neck.
The enormous head soared up to the sky. A black spring burst out of his neck. The member of the Pangu Clan toppled forward, and the furiously burning spiritual energy around him entirely disappeared!
Without the enhancement of spiritual energy, his body could not withstand the extremely strong gravity anymore. After a series of cracking sounds, he collapsed in a weird posture and cramped briefly before he stopped moving.
As the giant fell to the ground, Draconic Phoenix fell from the air and hit the ground like a chunk of scrap metal. From the broken breastplate, Li Yao was ‘spat out’ by Little Black and lay on the ground with all his limbs stretched out.
This time, he truly did not even have the strength to fart.
Crack! Crack! Crack! Crack!
A few metal spiders crawled to him and eyed him maliciously with their crystal cameras. The mining drills on their abdomens, stained with the member of the Pangu Clan’s blood, were emitting a stinky stench because of the heat.
“Senior Su.” Li Yao smiled miserably to the mining spiders. “I’m done. My spiritual energy is dry. Half of my bones are probably broken. All my internal organs are bleeding, too. Please come and save me!”
Su Changfa soon arrived.
He was in no better condition than Li Yao and could not have looked more wretched.
However, he had received the fundamental treatment in the war base. Right now, he was soaked inside a jet medical cabin, with only his burnt head exposed to the air. Every hair on his head had been burnt up, making him as bald as a big turtle.
His combat ability was mainly based on the spiritual puppets. At this moment, there were still too many metal spiders that had survived. They all gathered around him and stared at Li Yao coldly.
Looking at the corpse of the member of the Pangu Clan and Draconic Phoenix, which was as broken as mud next to Li Yao, Su Changfa put on a victor’s smile.
“Fellow Cultivator Li, you’ve been troubled,” the old Immortal Cultivator said peacefully.
“Indeed, I have.” Li Yao looked back at him innocently as if he did not read the viciousness behind his iris.
“I didn’t know that you would be so incredibly strong,” Su Changfa said unhurriedly. “Not only are you in the Nascent Soul Stage, you were even able to trigger such a powerful technique with a Colossus and finish the member of the Pangu Clan in one attack!
“Thankfully, we ran into him, who forced Fellow Cultivator Li to play all the trump cards. Otherwise, the few of us might’ve been unable to stop you if you had suddenly attacked us!
“It appears that you hid a lot of interesting experiences from me. Why don’t we adjourn to our base so that we can talk slowly?”
“Cough, cough. Cough, cough, cough, cough!” Li Yao vomited a few mouthfuls of phlegm that were mixed with saliva before he said lethargically, “There’s nothing clandestine about my experiences. You can ask anything you want, Senior Su. However, I’m too heavily wounded right now, and I’m afraid that I’m incapable of talking. Can I ask the two of them to have a nice chat with you on my behalf?”
Su Changfa was suddenly alarmed because he discovered that two more long shadows had appeared next to his own on the ground without him noticing!
One of the shadows was branchy, like an enormous tree, while the other was wry and did not have a fixed form, like a living swamp!
