Chapter 415 - Fall of a True Lord Rank
Zhao Feng remained silent, but he could feel Yu Luo’s killing intent and enmity.
He shook his head helplessly.
What could he say? He had done nothing and said nothing to become connected with Zhuang Wan’er.
However, even then, someone else had begun to hate him and that person was a True Lord Rank. He was indeed ‘innocent’ enough.
Of course, Zhao Feng didn’t mind this. Yu Luo didn’t put Zhao Feng in his eyes, but did Zhao Feng put him in his eyes?
At this moment in time, Ye Yanyu and Zhuang Wan’er, two chosen ones of Heaven started to discuss how to deal with the Towering Tree Yao.
“A total of six True Lords. This force is indeed strong. The Thirteen Countries didn’t even have one.”
Zhao Feng sighed in his heart.
Of the ten True Lords, six were present and two of the top three arrived to discuss on how to face the Towering Tree Yao.
Zhao Feng couldn’t speak up on the battle plan and he wasn’t even interested.
All he wanted to do was get one Tree Yao Essence Fruit and he would be satisfied at that.
Soon, the three sides came to an agreement and started to close in on the Towering Tree Yao as they unleashed their attacks.
The Towering Tree Yao gave off a low roar and waved its thick branches, sending waves of green poison towards the warriors.
Apart from that, strong gusts of winds started to blow close to the Towering Tree Yao and they could destroy entire buildings easily.
“Not good, everyone, block it!”
In the air, the black mist created by the Black Cliff Palace was blown away and some corpses and skeletons were destroyed before even coming to a hundred yards from the Towering Tree Yao.
Those that hadn’t reached the True Spirit Realm couldn’t even be hit by the remains of the attacks from the Towering Tree Yao and could only serve as cannon fodder.
With one sweep of the Towering Tree Yao, more than a dozen corpses and skeletons including some at the True Spirit Realm shattered.
The branches of the tree were like massive poles to humans and every swing contained power calculated by thousands of tons.
Even the six True Lord Ranks had to be extremely careful around the Towering Tree Yao’s branches.
Every swing of the branches would cause winds to blows and send airwaves that made normal True Spirit Realms unable to breathe.
“The Towering Tree Yao’s battle power is stronger than expected. No one under the Origin Core Realm can face it head-on.”
Zhao Feng sat on the Three Flowered Treasured Lotus mid-air.
The position where he was at was right outside the Towering Tree Yao’s offensive limit and the roots in the ground couldn’t reach him.
Soon, Zhao Feng witnessed a peak True Mystic Rank genius accidentally be hit by a wave of air and fall to the ground. He was then tangled up by the roots of the Towering Tree Yao, becoming its fertilizer.
Even the six True Lord Ranks could only attack in the air from a distance.
“Humans…. You will pay for your ignorance.”
A deep blurry voice resounded across the forest coming from the Towering Tree Yao.
The Towering Tree Yao had already turned into a Yao. It had its own thoughts and was barely able to speak.
“This tree Yao has been bathed in the solar and lunar essence for a very long time and its body is comparable to the Origin Core Realm. Don’t fight it head on and wear it out instead.”
Chi Gui warned and carefully controlled a group of ghost corpses to fight the roots of the Tree Yao on the ground.
The roots of the Tree Yao were extremely strong and even the ghost corpses at the True Human and True Mystic Rank found it hard to chop them up.
However, the geniuses of the Black Cliff Palace had their own skills and used the air of rotting to erode the roots.
The blood robed True Lord Rank cultivator used a Blood technique and sent arcs of blood moons towards the roots of the Tree Yao.
“Blood Demon Corpse Palm!”
A light with the color of blood glowed from the blood robed True Lord Rank cultivator and his flesh started to become dry.
The attack on the True Lord Rank destroyed a small root in one palm and his power seemed to somewhat counter the Towering Tree Yao.
Apart from that, Mo Yu from the Black Cliff Palace, whose body was dry and glinted with silver, was actually on the ground fighting the roots.
“Heavenly Corpse Spirit Slaughter Hand!”
Mo Yu’s skin glowed with silver and his limbs and body started to expand into the size of a small giant.
With one palm containing the air of death, he sent dark silver flames towards the nearby roots and turned them into a puddle of black water.
“This guy is a Corpse body strengthener and is strong enough to fight the small roots of the Towering Tree Yao head on.”
Zhao Feng’s God’s Spiritual Eye looked around and saw Mo Yu, the alive 'dead' person with the strongest body, fighting the small roots of the outer edges.
In the air, Ye Yanyu and Zhuang Wan’er were like two goddess that sent their devastating attack to clash with the Towering Tree Yao.
A couple small branches of the Towering Tree Yao cracked. If it was another normal True Lord Rank without the powerful attacks of these two, they wouldn’t be able to break a couple small branches.
However, after an hour of fighting, the expressions of the two girls became more solemn. The branches they broke were only the ones at the very edges and were nothing to the Towering Tree Yao.
Ding Ding Peng---
The two tried to break some bigger ones but only small scratches were left on them.
“Ding Ding Ding….”
Zhao Feng pulled his Luohou Bow from afar and sent his arrows onto the tree but there was no reaction.
Qiu Qiu Qiu~
After the three Luohou Arrows returned, Zhao Feng inspected the place with his God’s Spiritual Eye and only saw a faint mark even smaller than the pinky and couldn’t help but take a cold breath.
This meant that attacks from normal True Lord Ranks were like flies and mosquitos to the Towering Tree Yao. At most, it would just be uncomfortable but nothing serious would happen.
Even the strongest attacks from Ye Yanyu and Zhuang Wan’er couldn’t harm the Towering Tree Yao.
The one dealing the most damage was the blood robed True Lord Rank cultivator. His attacks could erode life force and countered the power of nature.
“Blood Splatter Demonic Land.”
A light of blood radiated from the blood robed True Lord Rank cultivator and it eroded the nearby smaller roots. Wherever the light went, the land seemed to become one with him and continue its path of erosion.
Although he had only injured the nearby smaller roots that were nothing to the Towering Tree Yao, he was still doing more damage than Ye Yanyu and Zhuang Wan’er.
“The thought of the three Sects is correct. By successfully eroding the roots of the Towering Tree Yao, that can cut off its source of power and weaken it.”
However, Zhao Feng shook his head in regret. He knew this wasn’t effective by inspecting it with his God’s Spiritual Eye because the roots of the Towering Tree Yao were very deep into the ground and the furthest one reached ten miles into the ground.
Destroying the roots was more than a hundred times harder than destroying the branches.
“Even if another ten or twenty True Lord Ranks came, they wouldn’t be able to finish off the Towering Tree Yao.
Zhao Feng was sure in his heart. The Towering Tree Yao couldn’t move properly but its offensive and defensive capabilities were around the same as an Origin Core Realm and in terms of life force and body strength, the Towering Tree Yao was much stronger than Sovereigns.
Right as he was thinking, the situation changed.
A scream came from the ground and looking over, root after root wrapped around the blood robed True Lord Rank.
The blood robed True Lord Rank was twisted into an unrecognizable shape then sunk into the ground, becoming fertilizer.
This scene made the hearts of the other disciples present jump and all of them took in cold breaths.
Even the other five True Lord Ranks were dazed.
“The roots of the Towering Tree Yao are extremely portable and it instantly moved its roots from other areas to this place to kill the blood robed True Lord in one blow.”
Zhao Feng’s heart went cold. The Towering Tree Yao was smarter than he thought and it actually knew battle tactics.
At the same time, a True Lord Rank skeleton that Chi Gui was controlling fell from the sky as it was shattered to pieces by a branch.
The two accidents happened almost all at once. This meant that in an instant, two True Lord Rank beings had been killed by the Towering Tree Yao.
Zhuang Wan’er’s expression changed.
After the Moon Demon Palace lost a True Lord Rank genius, Zhuang Wan’er lost her battle intent.
“Retreat for now.”
The two True Lords of the Black Cliff Palace led their people to retreat.
The strength that the Towering Tree Yao displayed was too terrifying. It could withstand weapons, fire, and water. Its attacks could even instantly kill True Lord Ranks.
At this moment in time, the geniuses of the three Sects were all stunned.
Ye Yanyu and Yu Luo led their group out of the Towering Tree Yao’s offensive range.
“As I expected.”
Zhao Feng wasn’t surprised at this result. Just like he thought, even if another normal ten or twenty True Lord Ranked cultivators came, they wouldn’t beat the Towering Tree Yao.
This was like saying dozens of those at the Ascended Realm fighting a True Spirit Realm. The former would lose easily.
The difference between the True Spirit Realm and Origin Core Realm was also huge.
“If the Towering Tree Yao had half the speed of an Origin Core Realm, at least ninety percent of the people here would die.”
Zhao Feng became warier of the Origin Core Realm as he knew more.
His figure flashed and blocked Ye Yanyu’s path
“Kid, what do you want to do?”
Yu Luo shouted as killing intent flashed in his eyes.
“What do you want to say?”
Ye Yanyu surveyed this youth in front of her calmly. There was no need for her to be wary with her strength.
“Actually, everyone’s chain of thought went in the wrong direction before.” Zhao Feng said slowly.
Ye Yanyu seemed to be interested, but Yu Luo and company nearby had disdain on their faces.
“We don’t have to defeat the Towering Tree Yao to get the rewards. It’s like saying there’s a peerless treasure in a well-guarded city. Millions of troops might not be able to take the city down, but a master thief could get the treasure without being injured.”
